I read, ok I read A LOT, mostly about survival and prepping and there is one prep that I rarely hear mentioned.
The prep is the Bible!! I understand that not everybody that might read this post believes the Bible and that you might feel that this is not a necessary prep. To those that don’t believe I would like to offer a few thoughts.
It is a great historical record of the times that it was written in.
It has beliefs and concepts that transcend the time of its writing, for instance most if not all of the principles of the Constitution of the United States come from the Bible.
It has wonderful stories about real people, just like you, and how they handled things in their lives in godly and ungodly ways.
If you truly are a serious prepper, then take a good hard look at what is going on around you, then read a bible, I think that you will find it to be Very accurate for what is occurring right now.
For those of us that count ourselves followers of Christ there can be no greater prep, and no I am not necessarily talking about going out and buying a bunch of bibles (although that is always a good idea). I am talking about taking it down off the shelf NOW and reading it, studying it, getting it into your heart. There will come a time when people will take your bible away from you and you might not be able to stop them. But if you have large portions in your heart, because you have studied, and meditated and read, then NO ONE will be able to take it from you.
2 Tim 2:15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The there is my prep.
