The recent hurricanes that hit Texas and Florida
proved that the majority of the American people are ill prepared
when it comes to disasters. When God was going to extract some 3
million Israelites from Egypt under the leadership of Moses, it was
a logistical nightmare, but He still made it happen in an orderly
manner by having the Israelites gather cash and supplies beforehand.
It is therefore prudent for Christians to prepare for disasters like
an earthquake, tornado, hurricane, fire, famine or even war. Jesus
spoke about future events that will negatively affect humanity, and
just like in the past, God will supernaturally use our efforts to
see us through. Are you prepared for a small scale natural disaster?
Do you have an emergency plan that can be quickly implemented? Are
you stockpiling basic necessities like food, water, and cash? Do you
have the necessary gear to live in a rural area for a prolonged
amount of time? Do you have firearms to protect yourself in the
event that law and order breaks down? The goal is to be ready when a
disaster occurs, giving you the ability to survive and evacuate in
the midst of chaos. We should always be ready to share our testimony
and the same concept can be applied to emergency preparedness.
