“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
One paradox of the end times (or any time filled with great change, chaos and/or uncertainty):
Those who spend the most time physically preparing themselves for what they believe is to happen seem to be CONTINUALLY startled by events unforeseen and therefore, considered in their plans.
This is particularly true of the high priests in white lab coats who go by the name of scientists.
These poor fellows are claimed to be CONTINUOUSLY puzzled, baffled or otherwise mystified by events which are happening.
- As scientists puzzle over India’s declining COVID cases, life starts to return to normal
- Scientists puzzled by 30,000 chinook that seem to be missing from Yukon River
- NASA satellite spots ‘something rising’ above ice in Antarctica, leaves scientists baffled
Scientists are just one more group to join the preppers/survivalists in their state of startled-ness.
So, there is much that the person who puts their trust in the things of the world and the schemes of man does not think of, apparently.
This demonstrates that MANY preppers/survivalists are NOT believers of God’s Word: instead of trusting God, they trust themselves and their stash.
Though one might point out that those who heed God’s warnings are not nearly so often startled.
This was illustrated over the past week by the LARGE number of emails received from (what appeared to be) GENUINELY startled folks who were surprised and overtaken by events recently and just want to warn others “Be careful out there!”
Some are obviously trying to make a buck: selling books and other information which are hawked using the lines, “Don’t be like me! Don’t ignore so-and-so-and-so! This information is priceless!”
But the BIG takeaway from this week’s email barrage was:
There appear to be a LOT of startled folks nowadays.
Some of them seem to be so startled, that it impressed them to make videos, promotional pamphlets or products (and to send out emails about them!) in order to prevent others from experiencing the heartbreak of being startled by events unlooked for.
The takeaway from all of this?
Avoid being startled: heed the warnings about the end times in God’s Word.
HAS the reader recently heard from someone who has been overtaken by end times events?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
