Counting On Dad (Sunday Inspiration)

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.” (Psalms 91:3)

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn…..” (Isaiah 54:17)

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.” (Psalm 56:3)

Ya know we live in a dangerous world with both positives and negatives. The positives are easy and required, no, desired more than its opposite. However, when these evils and negatives arise and they will, our preps will only go so far. We have limits.

But God in His infinite love and grace, steps in and navigates us through the rough. And in those times, our confidence should never be placed in ourselves not in our skills or equipment but take relax in that which dwells in most of us. As we place our confidence in and count on His faithfulness in our Heavenly Dad we are guaranteed to overcome all adversities.

A true story was related to me recently of a rancher who lived in the lowlands of Southwest Texas. The father had promised his young son a fishing trip. On a set day, they traveled to the river for the adventure; they arrived about mid-morning. After the two spent some time fishing, the father noticed that a storm was moving in. He thought about how quickly the river could flood in heavy rain, so he decided that they should head home. The father and son began their homeward journey. They had traveled a quarter of the way and were nearly home, when their Jeep got stuck and they could go no further.

knowing that he would have to walk a mile or so for help, he instructed his son to stay inside the Jeep. After being gone a while, the father approached the Jeep and entering the vehicle he was delighted to see his son asleep in the back seat.

The father looked at the son and asked, “Son, weren’t you worried or scared?” The son looked innocently at his Dad and in all sincerity replied, “Dad, I was counting on you.”

How much faith do we have in God, our Heavenly Father? He has said, “....I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Heb. 13:5) Can we confidently claim that promise? If so will we be able to say as Moses did at the Red Sea: “…Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD…….” (Exodus 14:13).

Daily here and there, so many of us people on Earth face great rials, strange weapons, negatives on supers levels, poor decisions with terrible consequences, physical ailments, financial hardships, spiritual adversities, wicked lies, bondage enriched laws, governmental disruptions to all our lives, man-made atrocities, extreme weather…all this and more; all the while breathing the same air space as these things most wicked. What is one to do?

When these floodwaters threaten to drown us, a calm trust in God, and hearing His voice will enable us to lie down in the “back seat” and rest (sleep)- because we are counting on our Heavenly Father (our Dad!).

When all hope is lost, we can always count on God

How to Bug Out in Your Car (LINK w/ OTHER RELATED LINKS)

Alternative Bugout Locations: The Roads Less Traveled

Preppers know they need to be prepared to both bug out and bug in, but many need to plan to have multiple bugout locations prepared to head to. Below is a Red Cross emergency shelter. Don’t let this be you.

At Least Three Bugout Locations? Yes, but where?

Finding at least three locations can be a lot of fun if you enjoy traveling and trying new things. If you are a hermit, then it won’t be nearly as much fun………”


These important items deserve a place in every bug-out bag

Should you bug out in the city or the country if SHTF?

“Where do you go when SHTF? Supposing you find yourself in the middle of a total collapse, settling down in one area just might be your best shot at surviving the challenges ahead. But should you live in the city or should you go to the country?

A lot of people think bugging out is the way to go in a time of a total collapse, but it may not be a wise choice. Moving and being on the road, even with a vehicle, is dangerous and must only be done as a last resort. Finding shelter and a place to settle down in need to be one of your biggest priorities. In fact, many prepping experts recommend staying home when possible.

But on the off-chance that your home gets destroyed in the disaster, where should you move to? Some people say being in the city is better, while others say going to the wilderness is more conducive to survival. Considering that the answer to this question is a matter of life and death, you will need to find the pros and cons of each option and weigh them carefully……….”


The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide For Preppers, Non Preppers Who Need To Prep, and Children (Christmas)

Christmas is just right around the corner and I know a lot of you are like me and are already trying to think of the perfect gift for a particular person or different people in your lives.

Christmas morning will be here before you know it, so we are going to help you.

We thought we’d offer some ideas for people who don’t prep (but should!) and hard core preppers (who have everything!)

First of all, we will focus on non preppers. In my opinion this is a great time to give someone something that could save their lives.

For instance, one year for Mothers Day, my wife and I gave her mother a weather radio. Numerous times has that thing went off in the middle of the night (and scared the crap out of them!) but they would have been asleep and slept through a tornado that went through their neighborhood within a half mile of them if it had not been for that weather radio.

They have always been grateful that they had that weather radio and started looking at other things they didn’t have but may need one day in cause of an emergency.

So it’s a good way to get non-preppers to think about emergencies and disasters………”


Comparing Heaven And Hell (Sunday Inspiration)

True Story

Years ago I met a man who lived for a while in Costa Rica; near the Arenal Volcano which for a while was active. He said that he hiked up about halfway and there seeing a crater to which many people from the United States grab guided tours. If you were standing near the crater, you’d see this red-hot dome with this steam and sulfur dioxide coming out.

At the base of the volcano was this discharge of lava, consisting of huge boulder that had come through a great heat and if was covering a lot of acres of pasture land. In seeing this, you could almost hear the words of Isaiah saying, “Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure:…………”

Looking at Arenal Volcano can help you visualize HELL as Jesus described it in Luke 16:19-31 and Revelation 21:8. Jesus spoke of HELL so vividly because He doesn’t want people to go there for eternity but rather enjoy Heaven forever. A volcano is surely not HELL, but it’s a vivid reminder of the real HELL Jesus talked about. In Revelation 21 we have a striking picture of Heaven and also of HELL. The choice of where we go is ours to make in this life.

I knew of this woman who got stung in her neck by a yellow jacket and she passed out. Her heart even stopped beating for a while, but she was revived by a person nearby who had medical training. After she regained consciousness, the first thing she said to her husband who was with her was “I saw Jesus on the throne.!” Later on the way home she mentioned that she was “almost there,” and that “Heaven was so beautiful!”

We may not have the hope of inheriting great wealth here in this world, but Revelation 21:7 says, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” What a glorious anticipation! And,…what an awful contrast is the fate of unrepentant people that want to do their own thing, their own mind and end up staying a lost sinner headed to the lake of fire and brimstone!!

The woman’s husband was the one who lived in Costa Rica.

Matthew 25:46 says, “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

This world affords no pleasure so great to cause a person to say, “It was worth it!” as they are squirming in an unquenchable hellfire.

On Becoming Hard to Kill (LINK)

“Never make it easy for the bad guys. If anyone ever wants to assault you, rob you, rape you or kill you, it should be the hardest thing they have ever done in their life. Always make the bad guys work for it.  Becoming Hard to Kill has become an internet meme attributed to Tim Kennedy.

Young men and older men for that matter should see him as a role model. UFC fighter, Army Ranger, entrepreneur, and family man, he should inspire men as to what they can accomplish. The emphasis on this article is about becoming physically resistant to harm………..”
