What's your plan.... - Part 4

I've recently stated to a colleague at work discussing preps, "I'm a christian first and foremost, and I hope that Christ returns before it gets too bad", only because if the Devil has his way, it will be hell.

The Devil knows the truth of God's word, he quoted God a number of times in tricking Eve and tempting Christ, the only two people to whom he's shown himself in person.

What doe's God say about the truth and devil? "Thou believest that God is one; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and shudder." (James 2:19 ESV)

You're correct that we live in a crooked and perverse generation (Acts 2:14) and that evil men will wax worse and worse in the last days (2 Tim 3:13), however, in the context of 2 Tim, God contrasts the characteristics of evil men, with that of men who believe God, "that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work." (2 Tim 3:17) and by contrast, overcome evil men.

There are many times, Jesus Christ himself said "fear not", so while I agree with you about what self professed Christians do, none of us is perfect. But, we have a perfect example in Christ, and we encourage one another to uphold the high standard and high calling of Christ.

We have the hope of the return of Christ, his second coming. In the meantime, I believe for the best and prepare for the worst, because, we don't know when Christ will return, but we know for a certainty he will, so does the Devil.

All of the events that are occurring, since just before 2000, with droughts, rolling brown outs, the dot com recession, just as we were beginning to recover from the recession, the 9/11 attacks (false flag?), 2008 global financial crisis, fukushima, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, all of these things, some man made, some not, I believe they are part of a conspiracy to destroy the truth, indeed as there has been since Lucifer rebelled in heaven, and that there is a main conspirator, the Devil.

It seems to me events are unfolding more quickly, facilitated by technology, however, the word of truth can be disseminated more quickly, as well. So, while it is a fact that we live in interesting times, and it can be fearful, we can take comfort in the 23rd Psalm, and a well built, American made, Smith and Wesson, Colt, Browning, or any of a host of reliable firarms, and the readiness, willingness, and ability to use them in defense of our families and loved ones. Let the enemy fear that.
