Dark Clouds (it’s no secret)

*Survival thoughts

Today, millions of Americans say they believe the United States is on the verge of a major economic collapse and will soon be entering another Great Depression. But only a small percentage of those same people are prepared for this to happen.

The sad truth is most Americans would last little more than a month on what they have stored up in their homes. Most of us are so used to running out to the supermarket or to Wal-Mart for whatever we need that we never even stop to consider what would happen if suddenly we were not able to do that.

Already the U.S. economy is starting to stumble (thanks to the hidden elites) about like a drunken frat boy. All it would take for the entire U.S. to resemble New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina would be for a major war (or an ongoing war to increase), a terror attack (false flags), a deadly pandemic (CDC controlled release) or a massive natural disaster (or HAARP weather manipulation) to strike at just the right time and push the teetering U.S. economy over the edge.

Just how would you survive if you suddenly could not rely on the huge international corporate giants (big box stores, grocery chains, etc) ? Do you have a plan? What is plan “B” for you and yours? Who are you trusting now for your needs?

Unless you already live in a cave or you are a complete and total mindless follower of the establishment media, you should be able to see very clearly that regardless of how many positive thoughts you think or meditative moments you have, society is more vulnerable now than it ever has been.

We have a world that is full of lunatics in positions of power, and if one of them decides (and they will one day) to set off a nuclear, chemical or biological weapon in a major city it could paralyze an entire region. War could erupt in the Middle East at literally any moment, and if it does the price of oil will double or triple (at least) and there is the possibility that much of the entire world could be drawn into the conflict.

Scientists believe a massive high-altitude EMP (electromagnetic pulse) blast could send large portions of the United States back to the stone age in an instant (that might be interesting). In addition, there is the constant threat that the outbreak of a major viral pandemic (bio-weapons) could kill tens of millions of people around the globe and paralyze the economies of the world (which is the hidden agenda from behind the scenes).

But even without all of that, the truth is that the U.S. economy is going to collapse one day; or dramatically change as so that not everyone would benefit equally. So just think of what will happen if one (or more) of those things does happen on top of all the economic problems we are already having.

If you’re not trusting God-Jesus Christ to get you through, you better have plan “B” God WILL supply our needs without bondage to the world. And what you might need right now IS the Lord; He’s still listening for a plea from you. As long as you draw breath, there is time!

Mk 13:13 “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. ”

Rom 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

The Most Peaceful Nations

The Global Peace Index, bases its annual assessment on a complex analysis of social, economic, and political factors, has found that the United States of America is the 114th most peaceful nation on the planet. Not a good position.

This most recent ranking sees the U.S. down 11 places from the previous year. This drop places Armenia and Rwanda in front of America, and El Salvador and China right behind.

“Iceland remains the most peaceful country in the world, a position it has held since 2008. It is joined at the top of the index by New Zealand, Portugal, Austria, and Denmark. There was also very little change at the bottom of the index. Syria remains the least peaceful country in the world, followed by Afghanistan, Iraq, South Sudan, and Yemen,” the report said.

Considering recent current events, it may come as a surprise to some that Syria wasn’t always at the bottom of the list — and we have the 114th most peaceful country to blame for this dilemma. In 2008, Syria was ranked 75th – following eight years of Bashar al-Assad’s rule, as well as the rule of his father for 29 years beforehand.

The other countries at the bottom of the list (including Syria) are actively being bombed into oblivion by the United States.

So what could be behind America’s own deterioration, given it prefers to take its conflict thousands of miles away from its own soil?

“The U.S. deterioration is primarily driven by the growing intensity of internal conflict within the country, which was partly seen in the years 2007 to 2015 (during the obama administration), as well as increases in criminal activity throughout American society,” the analysis said.

[Side Note -Warmongering attitude….Americans love war and those that propitiate it. The United States, well, we just make up the reason for war as we go along; creating a “false flag” event to sell anyone and everyone on the idea. Though poorly executed, they still are useful for long and lengthy battles across the globe. Wars never bring happiness but it does three things for the PTB: One, war profits are almost unfathomable and two, it depopulates undesirable people from the earth and brings nations under the control of other allied nations. And third, a nation going to war, win or lose, brings a false sense of nation pride; and you know what comes after pride….]

[Side Note] We have more viable threats coming from the U.S. Gov’t than we will ever have coming from what many call “terrorists.” Would not much of that money (having no oversight) be better spent on other things? I can think of a few 😉

According to the Global Peace Index’s latest findings, most of America’s allies are ranked within the top 20 places in the rankings, including Canada, Japan, Australia, Ireland, and Germany. The United Kingdom is placed somewhat lower, ranking 41st.

Israel is ranked 144th (behind Philippines, Egypt, Kenya and Western arch rival Iran, to name a few).

With this in mind, will should be making better decisions and influences to thwart war? Peace may never be gained in this age, but we don’t have to be unhappy because there is one around. Leaving this unhappy America might one day prove to be a happy investment for us and our children.:) Pray about it.

Rest In Peace

*Survival in the chaos

The reason why you may be reading this is because you want to learn how to stave off disaster. In the coming years, it is not entirely certain what the time will hold for the world, and it is important to get ready. But what is the real reason why you are preparing in advance?

The simple answer is; peace of mind.

You want to know, beforehand, you and your family will be able to survive. You are beginning to prepare because you don’t want to struggle when the world crumbles; you want to know that you have as many of the contingencies you can plan for squared away because you’ve already done the majority of the work. It doesn’t matter if it happens in three years or twenty; you know that you’re going to be okay.

However, survival is more than food stores and ammo.

Survival means more than taking care of the physical body. Survival also means you still take the time to stop and smell the roses, hold your loved ones, take in a beautiful view, and reconnect with whatever makes you tick. It means that you learn to depend on God as much as you learn to depend on gardening skills, your hunting prowess, or the homesteading and back-to-basics skills you’re cultivating. You constantly need to remind yourself of why you are putting in the effort. It’s not just so you can eat another day. For the Christian, God has given us much more of a responsibility than that.

The goal is not just to prepare and survive while others perish. A larger perspective motivates the follower of God in their prudent preparations…that is to wisely prepare so that one can adequately and skillfully continue to minister and serve to the true needs of others. That is our number one obligation. God didn’t tell Noah to build a boat just so he could experience the first ocean cruise.

Our foreknowledge should not only produce a fervor and zest for life, but it should also produce peace. The health of the mind is the most important part of survival, because without the focus, the assurance, and the knowledge to get through any situation – whether man-made or natural disasters – your actions and reactions will more than likely remain within the realm of chaotic and aimless. Peace is crucial during catastrophe, and it will not only offer you calm amidst the storm, but it also offers several other advantages.

If you are cool and calm during a catastrophe, you will be able to do several things:

-You will not make hasty decisions. When riots are occurring in the streets or there is a mass evacuation, usually people make rash decisions that can cost lives. If you are at peace, then you will have the unclouded ability to think critically.

-You will not consume as much energy and resources. People who are flustered and worried tend to gather more than they need or rush more than they have to. Both take far more energy than is necessary, and energy translates to vital calories.

-Being at peace will keep you from succumbing to fear. Fear can make people do unwise things, and tyrannical governments have a knack for using fear as a psychological weapon.

-You will remain focused and steady when the world crumbles to the ground. Of course, you will not know of what is to come, but you will not have nearly the stress that others might have. Stress can lead to sickness and irrational decisions, so keeping yourself relaxed will prevent that from happening.

Nothing You Cannot Do

Philippians 4:13

 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

King James Version (KJV)

There’s nothing to fear, you’re as good as the best.
As strong as the mightiest, too.
You can win in every battle or test.
For there’s no one just like you.

There’s only one you in the world today.
So nobody else, you see.
Can do your work in as fine a way.
You’re the only you there’ll be.

So face the world, and all life is yours.
To conquer and love and live.
And you’ll find the happiness that endures.
In just the measure you give.

There’s nothing too good for you to possess.
Nor heights where you cannot go.
Your power is more than belief or guess.
It is something you have to know.

There is nothing to fear, you can and you will.
For you are the invincible you.
Set your foot on the highest hill.
There’s nothing you cannot do.

When You Don’t Want to

practice_until

Be a little more forgiving, when you don’t want to.
Be a little more helpful, when you don’t want to.
Be a better listener, when you do want to.
Be a better friend, when you don’t want to.
Be a better parent, when you don’t want to.
Be a better person, when you don’t want to
Be little more loving, when you don’t want to.
Be a defender of freedom, when you don’t want to.                                                                                                                 Be a seeker of truth, when you don’t want to.

Why?

There’s evil people still breathing, deceptive politicians and there are rumors that things are going to get worse …

Why?

We have enemies…. we don’t need to war against each other.

Again, why?

Because we need the practice.

 

Merry Christmas Marine

17202312osevxh

T’was the night before Christmas, he lived all alone
In a one-bedroom house made of plaster & stone.
I had come down the chimney, with presents to give
And to see just who in this home did live

As I looked all about, a strange sight I did see.
No tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.
No stocking by the fire, just boots filled with sand.
And on the wall hung pictures of a far-distant land.

With medals and badges, awards of all kind,
A sobering thought soon came to my mind.
For this house was different, unlike any I’d seen.
This was the home of a U.S. Marine.

I’d heard stories about them; I had to see more.
So I walked down the hall and pushed open the door.
And there he lay sleeping, silent, alone,
Curled up on the floor in his one-bedroom home.

He seemed so gentle, his face so serene.
Not how I pictured a U.S. Marine.
Was this the hero, of whom I’d just read?
Curled up in his poncho, a floor for his bed?

His head was clean-shaven, his weathered face tan.
I soon understood, this was more than a man.
For I realized the families that I saw that night
Owed their lives to these men who were willing to fight.

Soon around the Nation, the children would play
And grown-ups would celebrate on a bright Christmas day.
They all enjoyed freedom, each month and all year,
Because of Marines like this one lying here.

I couldn’t help wonder how many lay alone
On a cold Christmas Eve, in a land far from home.
Just the very thought brought a tear to my eye.
I dropped to my knees and I started to cry.

He must have awoken, for I heard a rough voice,
“Santa, don’t cry, this life is my choice
I fight for freedom, I don’t ask for more.
My life is my God, my country, my Corps.”

With that he rolled over, drifted off into sleep.
I couldn’t control it, I continued to weep.

I watched him for hours, so silent and still.
I noticed he shivered from the cold night’s chill.
So I took off my jacket, the one made of red,
And covered this Marine from his toes to his head.

Then I put on his T-shirt of scarlet and gold
With an eagle, globe and anchor emblazoned so bold.
And although it barely fit me, I began to swell with pride,
And for one shining moment, I was Marine Corps deep inside.

I didn’t want to leave him so quiet in the night,
This guardian of honor so willing to fight.
But half asleep he rolled over, and in a voice clean and pure,
Said “Carry on, Santa, it’s Christmas Day, all secure.”

One look at my watch and I knew he was right,
Merry Christmas my friend, Semper Fi and goodnight.
