A different view of SHTF
As Christians in SHTF we will be the light in darkness. Through your example and testimony we will bring revival to this nation. For the problems of the nation can’t be fix by elections. For we battle not agianst flesh and blood, but of a spiritual warfare. Take up your cross and together we can be “One nation under God” again.
When “it” happens don’t partake in the sins of the masses.
Prepare now so you will overcome. see my post on Prepping is Biblically
All the survival posts reguarding sharing your preps with strangers they all say no but that’s not biblical.
If you have people come to you in need of food. Don’t deprive them of a meal. (Matt 25:31-46 Sheep and the Goats) You can use this as a way to share the gospel of Jesus.
Don’t murderer and loot when SHTF
Proverbs 1:9 My child, if sinners entice you, 10 turn your back on them! They may say, “Come and join us. 11 Let’s hide and kill someone! Just for fun, let’s ambush the innocent! Let’s swallow them alive,like the grave ; 12 [b] let’s swallow them whole, like those who go down to the pit of death. Think of the great things we’ll get! 13 We’ll fill our houses with all the stuff we take. Come, throw in your lot with us; 14 we’ll all share the loot.”
My child, don’t go along with them! 15 Stay far away from their paths. They rush to commit evil deeds. 16 They hurry to commit murder. If a bird sees a trap being set, 17 it knows to stay away. But these people set an ambush for themselves; 18 they are trying to get themselves killed. Such is the fate of all who are greedy for gain. It ends up robbing them of life.
Two of the ten commandments.
Deuteronomy 5:17 Do not murder
Deuteronomy 5:19 Do not steal.
I’m not denying the right to self-defence just don’t loose your head under the stress of the times.
When times get tough remember
Matt 6:26 (New Living Translation)
Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
