The Pink Elephant in the room....

Ladies and Gentlemen… please take a moment to pray for your friends and family back in the Nation’s Capitol.. can you really imagine it? 3 Million People without power? 

Let’s go down a tangent for a moment… what if this was permanent?  What if this 3 million was really a better part of our nation?

One of the most powerful books I have read in the past year was the book, One Second After by William R. Forstchen.  It was absolutely riveting.  Not to give out any spoilers, but it has to do with the loss of power in America and how everything breaks down and social mayhem breaks out.  The forward is by Newt Gingrich and it is one of my favorite books.

I believe that what we are seeing in DC is just a real taste of what could happen if America was ever hit by an EMP attack.

So think about this, what would you do if tomorrow you lost power and it never came back on? 

Could you survive? 

Could you feed your family? If you looked in your pantry right now… how long could your feed your family? 

Could you wash your clothes? Could you grow a garden?

Most of you reading this may say absolutely not…!  What does that feel like to you? 

Does it bother you?  Does it scare you?  Does it panic you?... You know what? 

It absolutely should!

Most people think that “preppers” are a crazy bunch of nutty hermits that believe the world is ending tomorrow.  But what if these “hermits” are really everyday people with young children who want to make sure that their family is well fed, if something like what happens on the East Coast should take place or worse?

Why does the idea of having extra food on hand bother you?  Do you really think your Government would come to save you?  Without power… they are just as hobbled as you are!

Do you realize without power, oil companies can’t refine oil as easily, gas stations cannot pump fuel, groceries don’t stay cool, washer and dryers can’t do their job, and your TV and Radio do not work.
I want you to watch this trailer and think about this.  What would you do tomorrow if we lost power and it never came back on?

So… now that you are sufficiently spooked… I want to offer up the top reasons that I feel that you should prep and have supplies and other things on hand;

           It isn’t about you!  When you really think about what the world is going through today… it isn’t about you.  It is about your family, you wife, your kids, your babies.  What if tomorrow the grocery store wasn’t open?  What would you do?  What pain would you feel telling your child that you have nothing to feed them for dinner tonight because you didn’t prepare ahead of time!

2     Currency Breakdown.  When you think about what I have posted over the past 6 months I have focused pretty heavily on the breakdown of the American dollar and what that would mean to us.  Think about this, what if you went to the store and what was one dollar yesterday was 5 dollars today.  Inflation is a real threat.  Having your own food supply can help to stabilize your pocket book… for a while.

3     Social Unrest.  How about this… what happens when the money is no longer flowing through the entitlement system?  What then?  What do all those people who choose to use it as a life style do?  Crime will increase?  It will not be safe to leave your home for extended periods of time. You will need your own supplies to sustain your families!

4     Pandemic.  Usually even I find this one to be a bit, well… over blown, but if there is a horrific flu bug that starts killing people, well, do you want to be out in “public” where everyone else is coughing and hacking?  If you catch it, you will give it to your family and then it all goes downhill from there.

5    War.  War is a terrible thing, and it causes great hardships on its people, mostly it kills and destroys populations.  You can read horror stories about cities under siege that have to end up eating their own shoes to sustain themselves, or how thirst killed everyone off. I for one never want to be in that situation. 

6     Finally, it’s biblical... It’s plain and simple, Proverbs 22:3 states that, “A prudent man see’s danger and takes refuge, whereas the simple keep going.”

So the question is …. Are you simple?  Or are you wise?  Do you realize that this nation is headed for some incredibly turbulent times? Do you realize that you are just a number and that when “The Event” takes place and resources are scarce you will have nothing if you are not prepared? 

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to email me!

Get ready people… know that God is in control over the long run…but you still have to survive!

Until next time!
