Confessions of this prepper gal
There are times (and they are getting to be more and more) that I feel like the lone wolf. You know, times when you feel like you are all alone in the world? I'm not referring to being physically alone. I am not physically alone, I am blessed to have a wonderful family around me. And, yet, I feel alone. Alone in my thoughts. Alone in my beliefs. Alone in my fears. Alone in my visions. Alone in my revelations. Simply alone. It's like I am standing on the highest mountaintop looking out at the billions of people in this world and there is not one person out there who understands me. Not one person who will truly take the time to listen to me.
I stand on the rooftops shouting to be heard and no one listens. Not even those who claim to believe in the need to prepare for what is coming. People have known and preached for decades that we are living in The End Times. And yet even though many seemingly believe this, they do nothing about it. It's like they shove it into the back of their minds and leave it there only to let it out every once in a while. Why? Why can't they see the urgency??? Oh, they say they do. They even say they agree with me. But yet they do not truly understand what I am trying to tell them. How do I know they don't? By their actions. Plain and simple. They seem to be willing to talk the talk, but do not walk the walk.
No, I'm not losing my mind. I'm not being paranoid. I'm not a crazy old cat lady (I don't even have a cat). And, I'm definitely not a conspiracy theorist. I am a realist. I look around me and see what is going on. I simply want others to see it as well. To truly see it. And not just to see it, but to be compelled to do something about it. To take action.
Matthew 24: 37-39, 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (KJV)
I somewhat have an understanding of how Noah felt. He tried to tell the people, he even showed them by his actions. He warned them over and over. Yet, not one single person outside of his immediate family believed him. Not one single person listened. Not one single person did anything to prepare for the upcoming end of the world as they knew it. And look what happened to them. I can't help but wonder if Noah ever felt like giving up. Not giving up on preparing for the flood, but giving up on trying to convince the people. Because some days (like today) that's how I feel.
What would happen if all of the Noahs of today gave up on warning the people? What if all the people God has chosen to tell His people that The End is coming grew too weary of their efforts to continue? I shudder to think of that.
Just like God warned the people in the Days of Noah, so is He warning His people today. The End Of The World As We Know It (TEOTWAWKI) is truly coming. And, it's coming soon. We don't know the day, nor the hour, but it IS coming. We can't be prepared by just thinking about it or knowing it. We must take action. Now. We may have to make some sacrifices and give up some of the luxuries we have become accustomed to (in order to stockpile food and equipment). We must do what we can when we can. We must stop ignoring the warnings! Those warnings are all around us! Stop. Look. Listen. Hear. There is more to hearing than just listening. Hearing involves believing. Believing involves action. Think about that for a moment.
I would like to leave you with this thought...are you willing to hear?
It is my prayer that you will be willing to not only listen, but to hear also.
Until next time...happy prepping, and God Bless!
