what does the bible say?

Should we prep for the end times?

We live in an interdependent world where food and water shortages can occur with little or no warning.  Therefore, it is advisable to have food, water, and other supplies on hand for such emergencies.  Preparing for natural disasters and the like will not only benefit us, but possibly our neighbors as well.  

In Proverbs 6:6-8 God tells us to “go to the ant” and learn from it.  “Go to the ant, you sluggard!  Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer, or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.”

Preparing for times of emergency is different than storing up massive quantities of food and water thinking that it will preserve our lives during the prophesied time of famine and tribulation to come.  Christ said in Matthew 24:21-22 “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.  And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”

Christians ought to put their faith in God Almighty’s protection, not in the amount of food and supplies they have stored away during this prophesied time of trouble which lies shortly ahead.
