The Day of Reckoning is Here (Revelations 18:23 states: “For the merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”)

Revelations 18:23 states: “For the merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

Look up the word “sorceries” in Strong’s Concordance, a reference book which lists the Hebrew and Greek translation of every word in the Bible, and you’ll find the original Greek meaning for sorceries is pharmakeia or pharmacy. In other words, drug medications. So what that line from Revelations is really saying is: “For thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy drug medications were all nations deceived.”

Revelations 13:16-18: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their character in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding, count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred threescore and six.”

Does that sound like anything we’re going through now?

France has mandated a country-wide vaccine passport. In other words, it’s required to buy or sell. Without it, you cannot buy food. Without it, you will starve.

The mayor of Lapu-Lapu in the Philippines is not allowing anyone who is unvaccinated to buy food or groceries.

Australia is close behind and initial trials of a vaccine mandate are currently underway in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.

Revelations 18:23 states: “For the merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

Have you heard of H.R. Bill 6666? If you receive a positive test for the imaginary virus–and the testing protocol is riddled with false positives–you can be hauled away in a “mobile health unit” to an internment camp and locked up for life. Do you think it’s a coincidence that the bill is numbered 6666?

Remember Bill Gates? He’s the guy who said in 2010, “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

To lower the human population by means of vaccines can have only two meanings: sterilization or death.

In 2019, Gates filed a patent application entitled Crypto Currency System Using Human Body Activity Data, a system designed to eliminate cash. And just how will this “human body activity data” be transmitted and processed in order to buy and sell? By an embedded microchip, of course.

Can you guess what this patent application number is? It’s WO/2020/060606.

This is the same Bill Gates whose company partnered with “spirit cooking” artist Marina Abramovic, an alleged Satanist, and released a commercial starring her on Good Friday. And this is the same Marina Abramovic who proudly posed with Jacob Rothschild before a painting titled Satan Summoning His Legions.

But I guess those are all just coincidences too.

Are you familiar with Klaus Schwab? He is the founder and chairman of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which annually brings together the heads of state of the world’s major countries to discuss the future of world affairs. In other words, Schwab is a major player on the world stage and one of the most influential men on earth. When he says, “Jump,” presidents of major countries say, “How high?”

In an interview with Swiss channel RTS on January 10, 2016, a full four years before our current “pandemic,” Schwab explained how every human being on earth will soon be micro-chipped in order to merge with the digital world.

Schwab and others like him envision a future in which natural humans with God-implanted DNA no longer exist, replaced by a population of micro-chipped trans-humanist creatures. This is their future and they can’t wait for it to happen.

They want to replace God’s creations with their own creations. In essence, they want to become gods themselves.

At this point in time, nothing else matters in the world. This issue is the dividing point between all peoples, between all races and between all political affiliations. You either submit to the jab or you don’t.

And for those who don’t submit, a sea of tribulations await.

How To Outfox FEMA In The Upcoming Economic Crisis (All the way until the economy collapses under the weight of all that debt. It’s not a matter of “if that happens,” it’s a matter of “when.”)

There’s no question that another economic crisis is coming. The only real question is when.

One economic guru after another has been predicting an economic collapse ever since the housing bubble burst in 2008/2009. One of the big driving factors behind their predictions has been the huge federal debt, which just seems to keep rising more and more.

What’s making that even scarier is how the government has been spending money in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been said that the only way that Congress knows to deal with a problem is to throw money at it.

They’ve definitely shown that with their reaction to the pandemic, approving more than 3.4 trillion dollars in “relief” spending. Of course, that figure includes a fair amount of money for pork projects as well.

The scary part is that the government “paid” for this by borrowing money from the Federal Reserve, which is supposedly an independent agency, but in fact is marching along with the government.

In supposedly paying in this way, they created money out of thin air. Having learned how easy it is to do that, I’m just wondering how many things are going to be paid for the same way.

All the way until the economy collapses under the weight of all that debt. It’s not a matter of “if that happens,” it’s a matter of “when.”

It’s hard to predict how the government will react to an economic crisis, a lot will depend on who is in office when it happens. But there are a few things we can take as sure:

  • The government will work to protect itself, even at the cost of the citizenry. All governments do this.
  • There will be cries for government aid. As we saw during the COVID pandemic, those will become politicized, with both sides trying to add a lot of other things to the relief bills, making them hard to pass.
  • FEMA will be expected to rush to everyone’s aid. Since they are short of resources and out of money, the only way they’ll be able to do that is to take the needed resources from others.
  • The government will use the situation to increase their control over all our lives.

FEMA is the real danger to the American people in a time of financial crisis. Of all the government agencies, they are the one who has the authority to deal with citizens during a time of crisis. The problem for you and I is that their authority is so vast in times of crisis, that should they use it all, it would be worse than living in a police state.

There are a few specific things that FEMA can do during such a time, each of which requires different strategies to foil.

Confiscating Supplies

FEMA’s authority to confiscate supplies for redistribution is famous. While they haven’t used it yet, the threat of it is very real.

How To Outfox FEMA In The Upcoming Economic Crisis

Originally, this authority was given so that FEMA could requisition food from manufacturers, distribution centers and stores. But as with anything else the government does, there’s just enough wiggle room in the way laws and regulations are written, that they can be reinterpreted to allow FEMA to take food from anyone who has it.

That means they could conceivably come and raid any of our stockpiles.

The solution to this problem, of course, is to make sure that nobody knows what we’ve got. In other words, implement good OPSEC (operational security) about our plans and preparation. But it’s going to take a bit more than that.

If you and I are still nice and plump, when everyone around us is losing weight, it will bring us under suspicion. Someone will notice, tell someone else, and eventually it will get to the ears of someone in FEMA, who will probably come knocking on our doors.

One key to keeping our relative affluence secret is to ensure that we are losing weight like everyone else. That means eating a survival diet, not eating everything we want to. As long as we’re losing weight like everyone else, it won’t look like we’ve got a lot of extra food sitting around.

FEMA meal

At the same time, accept whatever government handouts are being passed around. If everyone is receiving food from FEMA and you aren’t, that can raise suspicion to. In fact, it would help to make it a bit obvious, trying to work out a way to go with your neighbors, so that they see you getting help.

Finally, make sure that you don’t have everything stored at home. No matter how careful you are, something can go wrong and someone can find out that you’re not in as bad a shape as everyone else.

If that results in a FEMA raid on your home, you don’t want them to get everything. A cache or two of food in remote locations can help ensure that you’re going to still have something.

Relocating People

One of the scariest powers that FEMA has is the ability to relocate people at will. Intended to give them the ability to help people evacuate from danger zones, the problem is that there are no limits to that power.

They don’t need people’s permission to relocate them. They can do it on their own authority, regardless of people’s desire.

How To Outfox FEMA In The Upcoming Economic Crisis

Should FEMA start relocation drives, it will most likely start out looking benevolent. They won’t start out by raiding neighborhoods, clearing out people and loading people on trucks.

It will start with them looking for volunteers who are willing to relocate. The strong-arm tactics won’t come until later.

Still, those early actions can provide us with warning of what is to come. Knowing that will allow us the option of either getting out of Dodge and going to someplace where FEMA isn’t relocating people, or working out a plan to hide when they come looking for us.

They can’t clear out people from everywhere at once, so by following their pattern, it should be easy to determine what areas are safe to move into, while they clear our neighborhoods. We can then work our way back home, after they’ve gone.

Implementing Martial Law

How To Outfox FEMA In The Upcoming Economic Crisis

Any move to implement nationwide martial law will definitely be an inter-agency effort.

There’s no way that FEMA has the manpower to do it by themselves. Nevertheless, we can count on them being right there in the forefront, coordinating efforts, when that time comes.

Supposedly, martial law can only be implemented to protect the citizenry from the government, when the government can’t do its job.

But somewhere along the way, the definition of martial law seems to have changed from protecting the citizenry to protecting the government from the citizens. That’s what we can expect them to be focusing on, if FEMA ever implements martial law.

Should this happen, we’ll need to keep a low profile. It’s hard to say how far FEMA will go in implementing martial law, but one of the first things that they will probably do is to start seeking out dissidents and rounding them up.

If there is a Democrat in the White House at the time, “dissident” is spelled: C O N S E R V A T I V E,   G U N   O W N E R, and a host of other terms which can be applied to you and I. It won’t mean ANTIFA or any of the other leftist groups who love to riot and cause damage.

low profile

The only solution to this is to keep a low profile.

Don’t be the one speaking out against the government. Don’t complain about what’s going on.

Be the grey man as much as possible, so that you don’t attract attention to yourself.

Along with martial law, we can expect FEMA to start confiscating firearms. Those on the political left will use any excuse they can to take our guns away, and the rising crime that goes with a financial crisis will give them a handy excuse.

They will react the same way that the Democrat mayor of New Orleans did during Hurricane Katrina, using the opportunity to get guns out of citizens hands.

Regardless of how they go about confiscating guns, you don’t want to put yourself in the position of fighting back. Oh, I know there are a lot of people saying “Over my dead body” out there; but if you fight back, that’s exactly what it will be.

Unless you are willing to die to make a political statement, which will probably be misreported by the media, then taking a stand against armed officers is a losing battle. Even if you win the first round, you won’t win when they bring in the second round.

This isn’t to say that there isn’t a time to fight. It’s just to say that you don’t want to be in the position of fighting alone. Rather, if you are that strongly against the government taking guns away from people, get together with a group of others and take a stand in a more meaningful way.

In the meantime, make sure that you have guns which are well hidden, so that if government agents search your home, they won’t find them. Allow them to find some things; but not everything.

That way, they can go away feeling like they’ve accomplished something, cleaning you out. But you’ll still be armed and able to defend yourself or join the resistance, if that becomes necessary.

You’ll have to decide if storing guns in your off-site food caches is a good idea or not, but you’ll definitely want to store some ammo there. Make sure it’s for the caliber of firearms you’re going to hide, so that you have plenty to work with, should that time come.

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days (As a society, we are addicted to electricity. Pretty much everything we do uses electricity in one way or another, even activities which we think aren’t electrified.)

I don’t know if you’ve ever lived through a major power outage, but I have. I live in a hurricane zone, so I guess it’s no surprise that I would end up suffering through a hurricane sometime. The one I got wasn’t one of the big, sexy ones which brought in FEMA agents and lots of non-profit agencies to help us recover, but it was bad enough that it took a week for our power to get back on, so we could put our lives back together.

You don’t really realize how much you need electric power, until you are left without it. As a society, we are addicted to electricity. Pretty much everything we do uses electricity in one way or another, even activities which we think aren’t electrified.

When the power goes out, you really notice it; and the longer it is out, the more things it affects. Life gets harder rather quickly, as we wonder how we are going to do even the basic necessities for survival, let alone the day-to-day activities we are used to.

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days

Looking at the way things are in California right now, this may be something we all need to get used to. The rolling blackouts they are having right now are due to a series of errors, some made by the power company and some by the government.

The government blames the utilities for not properly maintaining their lines, while the utility companies are blaming the government for forcing them to invest the money that should have gone into that maintenance, into expensive green energy projects.

With the push for green energy projects across the country, PG&E may not be the only company that is behind on its maintenance. Now that the dam has been opened, we could see forced blackouts anywhere in the country where there is a risk of power lines causing wildfires.

Perhaps you can learn something from my experience. It sure has helped me with my planning since I went through this experience. So, I’ll break down the week here and give you an idea of everything that went wrong.

When the Power Went Out

I first noticed that the power went out when my computer suddenly shut off. This wasn’t the first time that had happened to me, as power outages in the middle of a storm are fairly normal. I figured that the power would come on in a while and in the mean time, I could have a snack and watch the rain.

First Day

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days

There was just one thing… the power didn’t come back on. As I sat there for hours, I counted all the work I wasn’t getting done and all the money I wasn’t making.

Meanwhile, since I live in the south, the temperature was rising. It had been 100°F outside before the rain started and it was rapidly heading that way inside. I opened the doors and windows that I could, without rain coming in, but there wasn’t enough airflow to cool the house much.

I guess that wasn’t as bad as being up north in the wintertime. While too much heat can kill you, too much cold is more likely to. People who live in colder climates than me and who don’t have any alternative means of heating their homes, like a wood-burning stove, are really taking a chance with their lives in the case of a major power outage.

Without power, we really didn’t have much light in the house. Most homes don’t have enough windows and mine is no exception. Between the lack of windows and the heavily overcast sky, it was hard to do much of anything.

Fortunately we had a gas stove, so cooking dinner wasn’t much of a problem. We had plenty of food and for the moment, the fridge and freezer were keeping things cold. We just had to make sure we kept the doors closed to keep that cold inside.

Second Day

Had a hard time sleeping that first night, due to all the heat. For that matter, we had a hard time sleeping all week long. If I had been able to string up some hammocks we could have been cooler, but the only place I could do that was in the back yard, and it was still raining.

I work at home, so I obviously couldn’t work. But neither could my wife. The school she worked at didn’t have any power either, so she was stuck at home. The kids loved it, as kids will, seeing it as a vacation from their classroom. But even if the schools had been open, they would have been stuck at home, as our street looked like a lake; some problem with the stormwater drainage.

The big thing that confronted me that morning was the home’s sump. Without electricity, the sump pump wasn’t emptying it out automatically.

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days

I had to tell the family we were switching over to emergency procedures and they’d have to use a five-gallon bucket toilet we had set up for emergencies. Fortunately, we use greywater recycling, so the water from most of the sinks and tubs went out into the back yard, not into the sewage system.

As afternoon rolled around, the water flow from the sink started diminishing and eventually came to a complete stop. We were without water. Fortunately, I had foreseen this and had stockpiled water. My rain barrels were full as well and I had a good water purification system.

Third Day

The rain has finally let up… at least for the most part. We’re still getting some sudden rainfalls, but we’re also getting dry times as well. Maybe our street will finally dry out and I’ll be able to move the cars. But man, the humidity is horrible.

Up till now the food in the refrigerator has been doing good, as the insulation was enough to keep it cold. It also helped that I had the freezer full, so there was a large mass of cold food there to keep it cold. But today’s crunch day for that food. I’m going to have to start doing something with it or it’s all going to spoil. Time to fire up the smoker and smoke what I can. Too bad it’s too cloudy to use the sun’s power to make jerky.

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days

Bathing is a challenge now, as we don’t have running water; and with the heat, we all need to bathe. I’ve spent a lot of time in Mexico, so I knew how to handle this. All it takes is a five-gallon bucket and a smaller plastic container, something that holds about two quarts.

To take a bath, you get a couple of gallons of water in your bucket and lock yourself in the bathroom, setting the bucket in the tub. You can wet yourself down by pouring water over yourself with the small container.

Once wet, it’s time to soap and lather. Then use the same container to pour water over yourself to rinse. The water is cold, but you don’t want to use more than you have to anyway. I can actually bathe and wash my hair with less than a gallon.

Of course, there are some family members who might not be all that happy bathing with cold water. I won’t mention any female’s names, but I’m sure you know what I mean. That meant heating up the water in a metal bucket on the barbecue grille. Fortunately, I’ve got a gas grill, in addition to the wood-burning smoker. I always keep extra propane on hand, as part of my survival preparedness.

Fourth Day

By now I’d be worried about my firewood supply if I lived up north. Most people stack their firewood in the open, which means that it would have gotten soaking wet from all that rainfall. In olden times, most people either stacked their wood in a shed or built their homes with wide eaves, so that they could stack the wood up against the house, where the eaves would protect it.

Still working on smoking the meat from the freezer and canning the veggies. That’s a bit challenging on an open fire, but not all that bad. We’re using the gas barbecue grille for that as well, when we’re not using it for cooking. I hope my supply of propane holds out.

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days

There’s enough sunlight that I can make jerky from some of the meat, rather than smoking it. I’ve already soaked it in brine, in anticipation of smoking it, so it has salt. That’s not as good for flavor as marinating it, but it will work fine for preserving it.

To make the jerky, I sliced the meat up and hung it over the clothes line. This is somewhat analogous to what the American Indians did, except they used wood racks, instead of a clothes line. Still, it’s the same idea and the meat seems to dry well, as long as the sun stays out.

Neighbors are starting to run out of food and have come knocking. That’s tough. I know many of their kids. Fortunately, we know this isn’t a TEOTWAWKI event, where we know the power won’t be coming back on. So I shared some food with them, giving them rice and beans from my stock, as well as some of the chicken that had thawed out.

I’m concerned about what’s going to happen in a few more days. People have already broken the windows in the local supermarket and raided it for food. What’s going to happen when that food runs out. The average supermarket only has three days worth of food on hand.

Fifth Day

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days

I’ve decided that my plans for alternative power were totally inadequate. The few solar panels I bought have barely been able to keep up with charging phones, flashlight batteries and a few other necessities.

If I had been able to power my fridge, I wouldn’t have had the panic to save my food. If I could have air conditioned at least one room in the house, we could have slept a whole lot better.

It’s more than just keeping cool so that we can sleep better; my wife’s heat intolerant. We normally have to keep her in the air conditioning pretty much all the time, except during our brief winter. Without air running, she’s been unable to do a thing.

I’ve been using evaporative cooling as much as I can to keep her cool, but that’s not enough. There isn’t any ice, or I’d be using that. The best I can do is keep her wet and in the breeze. At least at night it’s a bit cooler and she can move around.

People are starting to talk about organizing the neighborhood so that everyone can eat. I know what that means, it means that they expect me to share what I have. As best I know, there are no other preppers in the neighborhood, so I don’t know where all this food is supposed to come from, unless they are thinking I have enough to feed everyone.

Finally got all the food salvaged. But as much as I care for my fellow man, I didn’t do it for them. Besides, by the time you split up what was in my freezer through the neighborhood, we’ve got enough for one good meal, that’s it.

Sixth Day

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days

More people are coming around, asking for food. I don’t know these people, so I’ve been turning them away. Mostly I do that by telling them to go to the FEMA distribution center.

But as far as I know, FEMA isn’t here yet. If they are, it’s probably just to bring red tape. I haven’t seen anyone who has had food that came from FEMA.

Decided to do some scouting around today, so took the car out to see what’s happening. As best as I can tell, there are a few churches and non-profits up and running, trying to help people. That’s it. But I took that information back to my neighborhood and tried to spread it around.

Almost got carjacked while I was out scouting around. There has always been a lot of gang activity in the area, so I guess the gangs are getting active. I must have looked like an inviting target, driving my car down a nearly empty street. Fortunately, I saw them in time and gunned the engine, before they could reach me. A few twists and turns and I lost them. But it was close.

The radio has gone dead; we’re not even getting information that way anymore. Radio stations are supposed to have some sort of emergency power supply and a stock of fuel to run it. So I guess they ran out. We don’t even know if anyone out there is paying attention to what’s happening here, as we aren’t getting any reports back. It sure feels lonely.

Seventh Day

Here’s What Happens When You Go Without Power for 7 Days

Things are starting to get ugly. People are hungry and so are their kids. I’m starting to see others walking around with guns strapped on. I carry concealed, so I’ve been doing that all along.

But I doubt all those people have a concealed carry license. They’ve just decided to take it on themselves to carry a gun. And I have to say, they don’t all look like nice people.

Several of them got together and came up my walkway, looking like they were planning on taking over. Since I have a four foot tall hedge around my front yard, they were all bunched up, right there on the walkway… right where I wanted them. I stepped out on the balcony, while the family poked their guns out the windows. As I said, they were right where I wanted them… where we had the upper hand.

That was enough to get them to turn back, after shouting a few threats at the house. I’m sure they’ll come back, just as soon as they’re ready.

Later that Day

Thank God, the lights came back on. We have power once again. Things are starting to settle down. Where it was looking like we were going to have High Noon in the streets of our neighborhood just a few hours ago, things look civilized once again. People have put their guns away again. Some food trucks have shown up and I see smiles on faces once more.

So that was my experience. I’m glad it wasn’t any worse. But what about you? Have you lived through something similar? Have you had the lights go out? How did you handle it? How did your neighbors? What did you learn that you were doing wrong?

Government secrets – Currently, the government is hiding a lot from people who want to prepare, and that would raise some question marks!

Preppers are a well informed group. There is a serious investigative trait that we all share. We wanna know what’s going on, how it will affect us, and, most importantly, what we can do to mitigate it. That said, the government is very sneaky and might be hiding things from you that you have not considered yet.

Sometimes these things are hiding in plain site and sometimes they are well hidden. Lately, they have just been coming out saying it! But even heinous news can easily be buried in the rapid news cycle.

We are going to look at 4 things the government doesn’t want preppers to know.

IRS Hiring

The government is currently looking to fill 87,000 positions for additional IRS agents. This was a move that was built into massive spending bills and has been framed in many ways. The hiring of agents would be a measure to back fill for lost positions over the last year. That is the word from the government.

This massive hiring would also allow the government to go after “wealthy tax dodgers” to get all the taxes they are owed.

If you know nothing about the government then you might buy that line. These IRS agents are being hired to focus on crypto and payment methods and tools that are being utilized all over the internet. They wanna know what you pulled from Zelle, PayPal and Square last year and they wanna know how much Litecoin you have.

They are also considering taxing the profits gains on your 401K! So, even when you aren’t conducting transactions to make money, you have to pay a little tax!

The “wealthy tax dodgers” have safe funds that the IRS will never get their hands on. That is how they have earned their name!

They Can Take Your Preps

Now, we are always nervous of things like Martial Law, as preppers. We imagine the legions of armored government agents pulling up and removing all our food storage, at gun point, to “aid” with some far away disaster or war.

This is an old fear of preppers, but it is hardly without merit. The government doesn’t want you to know that they already have the law on the books to come and take, basically, anything they want from you!

It is an Obama era Executive Order – National Defense Resources Preparedness

The language is terrifying, but it is pretty straightforward.

Sec. 801. Definitions. In addition to the definitions in section 702 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2152, the following definitions apply throughout this order:

(a) “Civil transportation” 

– includes movement of persons and property by all modes of transportation in interstate, intrastate, or foreign commerce within the United States, its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia, and related public storage and warehousing, ports, services, equipment and facilities, such as transportation carrier shop and repair facilities.

– also shall include direction, control, and coordination of civil transportation capacity regardless of ownership.

This section defines actions taken on all equipment and even on your food.

(e) “Food resources”

– means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption. “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.

The language has been written and the well prepared will be targeted in a national crisis or state of emergency, maybe like the one we have been in for the last year and a half.

The DHS Is Already Targeting You

You may have heard about this bulletin or maybe you didn’t. It was published back in January 2021 but is very clear about the types of threats that the DHS is concerned about. Its hard to believe that we have reached this point.

There is a good chance that you fit at least one of the profiles or sympathize with one of the issues below.

Throughout 2020, Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs) targeted individuals with opposing views engaged in First Amendment-protected, non-violent protest activity. DVEs motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities.

Their Relationship with Big Tech

I have a serious disdain for the governments approach to National Preparedness Month. I feel like it is a missed opportunity every year to create a culture of preparedness in this nation. However, in 2021 I saw another example of the unholy union between our government and big tech that is used to target preppers.

The government has concerns about you and your preps and your motivations. They do not like your independence.

You may have noticed a message popping up on Facebook back in September. It was clearly a partnership between big GOV and big TECH. The message showed up on Facebook accounts and was asking users a very simple question:

Are you concerned that someone you know is too prepared?

Why would the leader of the Metaverse, Mark Zuckerberg, care about this? This is one example of many that the government is deeply embedded in big tech and using social media against preppers.

Final Words

Preppers are interesting members of society. By accruing skills and resources they have also afforded themselves agency. Its liberty in even the worst case scenario. It’s clear that the government wants an OFF switch for the types of behavior that they deem “extremist” or “dangerous” to their agenda.

You might think that governments want to take your money or your right to pursue happiness. Unfortunately, it is much darker than that. The government is after one thing and one thing only. They want to take away your ability to say, ‘No.’

Resistance to the government’s plan to craft your life for you is just not an option in their eyes. Preppers and homesteaders stand in the way of this, and we will always be a target for that.

The Collapse of the American Standard of Living (Study Done From 2000-2023)

Over the past three years, 3 million American jobs have been outsourced, primarily to China and India. In this article I’m going to tell you:

– How and why those jobs were lost
– Why 14 million more jobs will be lost
– why those jobs are never coming back
– What the future will be like for Americans
– How you can survive the collapse

Millions of American manufacturing jobs have been lost since the 1960’s. But American inginuity allowed many of those jobs to be replaced by high-tech jobs. The jobs we are losing now are in Engineeering, Computer Science, Research and Development, and most other high-tech areas.

Over many decades, American workers, through unions and scarcity of skilled workers, have raised their standard of living. American companies couldn’t use cheap foreign labor because communicating and coordinating over great distance was costly and complicated. The Internet changed that.

Using cheap Internet bandwidth provided by American telecom companies, American companies are now able to communicate and coordinate with cheap foreign workers just as easily as if they lived next door. The Internet has leveled the playing field for all workers world-wide. An American worker now competes for a job against workers in Beijing China, Calcutta India and everywhere else in the world.

American companies have the choice of paying a reasonable
wage, or even the minimum wage of $6.00 per hour, to an
American worker, or paying 24 cents an hour for a worker
in China, or 34 cents an hour for a worker in India. The
choice is clear. Fire the American worker.

Some experts are saying that the job oursourcing trend is
not permanent. Just like the high-tech revolution of the
last decades, America will find a way to replace the lost
jobs. Unfortunately, wishful thinking does not put food on
the table. The job outsourcing can end only when the
American worker becomes cheaper than their foreign

Since China and India each have a population of over one
billion (not to mention Indonesia and Africa), compared to
about 300 million for the United States, the wages of
American workers would have to drop until their standard
of living collapsed to that of the average Chinese or

== Why the U.S. Government is Exporting Your Job ==

Over the past three years, 3 million American jobs have
been outsourced, primarily to China and India. A study by
UC Berkeley predicts that as many as 14 million more jobs
will be lost.

Recall the tension between the United States and China
over Taiwan, and the “spy plane” incident. China is a
country with nuclear weapons. Why doesn’t China just take
Taiwan? Why didn’t China respond more aggressively to the
spy plane incident?

Because tensions with the United States would cause 10
million Chinese workers to lose their jobs. The 10 million
American workers jobs “gifted” from the U.S Government to
China as a political tool. Loss of those jobs would bring
China’s rapidly growing economy to a halt and push China
back into the poverty of the Mao Tse-tung era.

Recall the tension between India and Pakistan over Kashmir
and the power base that radical Muslims have in these two
countries. Both India and Pakistan are countries with
nuclear weapons. Why haven’t they responded more
aggressively in the struggle over Kashmir? Why have they
taken strong action to keep the radical Muslim element
under control?

Because a war between India and Pakistan, or giving free
reign to radical Muslim terrorists, would cause 10 million
Indian and Pakistani workers to lose their jobs. The 10
million American workers jobs “gifted” from the U.S
Government to India and Pakistan as a political tool. Loss
of those jobs would bring India and Pakistan’s rapidly
growing economies to a halt and push them back into the
poverty of the Mahatma Gandhi era.

The last several decades have been very stressful and
dangerous for the United States and the world. Personally,
I am very surprised that the world has avoided a nuclear
incident that would kill billions of people. The reason it
has avoided that disaster is because the U.S. Government
has been offering up American workers jobs to trouble-
making foreign countries as an incentive to behave

The loss of 3 million American jobs and a trade deficit of
$541.8 Billion is the cost that U.S. Government is willing
to pay to keep the peace. To keep the peace, we have to
share the pie. That’s why 14 million more American workers
will lose their jobs. That’s why those jobs are never
coming back.

== What the Future Will be Like for Americans ==

According to the Bureau Of Economic Analysis, GDP in the
U.S. increased at an annual rate of 4.1% in the 4th
quarter of 2003. You would think business would need to
hire more than the measly 21,000 new workers they hired.

A study by Cutting Edge Information found that 90% of all
U.S. business hire cheap foreign workers instead of
American Workers. That’s why this has been a jobless
recovery for America’s 8.2 million unemployed.

Do the math; the 3 million American Workers jobs lost to
outsourcing over the last three years cost about $450
billion in lost wages and about $150 billion in lost tax
revenue for local, state, and the federal government. This
explains the states crumbling infrastructure and the half
a trillion dollar federal annual budget deficit.

A study by UC Berkeley predicts that as many as 14 million
more jobs will be lost, costing local, state, and the
federal government about $250 billion each year in lost
tax revenue. With that magnitude of tax revenue loss, the
states can forget about investing in infrastructure. And
they certainly will not be able to continue unemployment
insurance and welfare benefits when the unemployment
numbers reach 22 million.

Think that can’t happen? Then you haven’t been paying
attention to the news lately. Allen Greenspan, the head of
the Federal Reserve, stated that the federal government
will not be able to pay Social Security after the year 2015.
Benefits must be reduced and the age to receive benefits
must be raised. A Medicare act passed last year took
Benefits away from 14 million senior citizens.

Think retirees will be able to rely on their pensions?
After years of turmoil in the job market, few American
workers have a pension. Even if they have a pension, 63%
of all companies have underfunded pension plans. That’s
up 6.5% from a year ago and rising at the fastest rate in

America is facing a future with 22 million unemployed and
70 million retired people (AARP 2030 projection) who will
have very little in entitlement systems to fall back on.
Here in Phoenix we are already witnessing the strange new
phenomenon of people 70 and 80 years old robbing banks!

Mexico was America’s low cost labor source, but they have
been “outsourced” to even cheaper labor in China and India.
Here in Arizona, we are under invasion from Mexicans hoping
to find work. People who can’t find legitimate work will
create their own jobs; burglary, drugs, and prostitution.

If you are not taking my message seriously, do the math
yourself. China and India each have a population of over
one billion (not to mention Indonesia and Africa), compared
to about 300 million for the United States. In order to
compete in the globalized economy, American wages and the
American standard of living will need to drop to the level
of the poorest counties on the planet.

== How To Survive the Collapse ==

Over the past three years, 3 million American jobs have
been outsourced. America now has 8.2 million unemployed,
and a study by UC Berkeley predicts that as many as 14
million more jobs will be lost. Unemployment numbers could
reach as high as 22 million. As U.S. companies shove
American workers out the door to be replaced by cheap
foreign labor, how can you protect yourself?

The way to protect yourself is to examine your current job
to determine if it’s a candidate for outsourcing. If it
CAN be outsourced, it WILL be outsourced. The secret is to
recognize which jobs WILL be outsourced, and if yours is
one of them, take action to change to a job that can’t be

Below is a list of some of the jobs that will be outsouced.

– Accounting
– Call Center
– Computer Programming
– Design
– Engineering
– Medical Transcription
– Research
– System Administration
– Telemarketing

If you are in a job that can be outsourced, begin taking
action to change to a job that can’t be outsourced. Jobs
that can’t be outsourced are jobs that can’t be done over
the Internet. They require a physical person to be present.
Below is a list of some jobs that can’t be outsourced.

– Construction: Landscaper, Building Framer, Heavy
Equipment Operator. You can’t transmit building or highway
construction over the Internet. Avoid design jobs such as
architectual design and cival engineering, which can be

– Delivery: Furniture Delivery, Household Mover, Package
Delivery, Truck Driver. You can’t transmit physical objects
over the Internet. They require a physical person to
deliver them.

– Law Enforcement: Alarm Installer, Corrections Officer,
Courtroom lawyer, Police Officer, Security Guard. Crime is
soaring, providing opportunities for jobs that can’t be
outsourced. Avoid legal documenting or research jobs which
can be outsourced.

– Service: Appiance Repair, Auto Mechanic, Cleaning,
Computer and Office Equipment Repair. These jobs require a
physical person to be present, but System and Network
Administration is questionable. Most administration can be
done remotely.

– Movies and Entertainment: Movie making is a giant
industry in America. You might think some aspects of movie
making can be outsourced, but the industry is run with
incredably tight scedules that can be met only with
maximum communication and coordination. Even jobs like
computer special effects require real-time collaboration.

– Multilingual Coordinator: If you can speak Chinese and
are familiar with the customs of China, your chances of
promotion to manager are very high.

– Import/Export: If you can’t beat them, join them. Become
a seller of foreign made products and services. You can
make millions of dollars and live in a mansion like Bill
Gates just by facilitating the loss of your fellow Americans

– Start Your Own Business. Choose a type of business where
you won’t be competing with foreign companies. Examples are
dry cleaner, caterer, decorator, mail boxes and packaging.
Anything that requires a physical person to be present.

U.S. Companies will continue to fire millions American
workers and replace them with cheap foreign workers. If your
job CAN be outsourced, it WILL be outsourced. Examine your
current job to see if it’s a candidate for outsourcing. If
it is, take action to change to a job that can’t be

The Global Depression Of Our Lifetime Is Coming! When It Happens, It Will Happen Quickly Without Warning THAT’S BECAUSE THE SIGNS ARE EVERYWHERE BUT PEOPLE REFUSE TO SEE

Ever since the “Great Recession” of 2008/2009, financial gurus of all stripes have been predicting another great depression, perhaps one even greater than the one of 1929 to 1933. Actually, what they’ve talked about is the country “driving off the financial cliff” and they’ve mostly attributed it to Congress’ irresponsibility in driving up the national debt.

The thing that differs in these financial prognostications is the trigger that’s going to cause us to go off the financial cliff. That’s an ever-moving target, as it changes every time that another trigger passes us by, without bringing about the expected disaster.

But the underlying problem which is likely to cause the financial collapse, bringing us into the depression is still there. Essentially, our economy is on very shaky ground and it is ground that has never been trod on before.

Part of what has propped up our economy to this point, is that the US dollar is the world’s reserve currency. Pretty much all international business transactions are conducted in dollars. That simple fact forces every country and every international corporation around the globe to buy dollars.

Add to that the amount of money the Federal Reserve is releasing as “quantitative easing” essentially money created out of thin air.

While there is some need for increasing the money pool in response to population increase and a growing economy, this is mostly done to fund government commitments that are not funded by tax revenue.

In other words, it’s money made up to pay for things, because there is no money to pay for them.

It is this, not businesses charging more for their products, which drives inflation. Businesses increase their prices because the materials they need to buy cost more; in other words, they are reacting to inflation, which in turn perpetuates the cycle.

The Reality

The reality of what is happening is that every time the Federal Reserve creates more money, is that they are diluting the value of every dollar in existence.

Essentially each dollar is a percentage of the total value of our country’s economy.

Since they are constantly creating dollars faster than the growth of the economy, they are reducing the value of the dollar. It’s just happening at such a slow rate, that we can’t see it.

Surprisingly, the quantitative easing that the Fed has been doing hasn’t caused massive inflation, as it normally would. About the only place we see that massive inflation is on Wall Street, which economists look at as being good.

But that doesn’t mean that everything is okay. At some point in time, and quite possibly sooner than anyone expects, the house of cards is going to come crashing down.

Some economists are now trying to say that our national dept is actually “too low” and that our economy can support a whole lot more. What they’re really saying is that they think the world will support holding onto a lot more US debt, allowing out government to borrow even more.

Perhaps the scariest single event pointing to how far out on a limb our government is, was the Coronavirus relief act.

In a single stroke, Congress authorized an additional 2.2 trillion dollars of funny money to be produced and parceled out to various entities, including you and I, to try and keep the COVID-19 pandemic from turning into a major financial disaster.

What nobody seems to have figured out yet, is that now that they’ve done that once, there’s nothing to stop them from doing it again. The real question is, how many times will they get away with that, before it becomes the trigger to bring down not just the US economy, but the economy of the world.

Typically, when countries have a financial collapse, the rest of the world’s economy remains intact. That props them up and allows them to rebuild. But as the world’s biggest economy, when the US has a hiccup in our finances, it affects the world.

The Great Depression hurt not only the US economy, but the entire world’s economy. Likewise, the housing bubble bursting in 2008/2009 did so too.

When we enter into this next depression, there won’t be anyone to bail us out; they’ll all be trying to bail themselves out, thanks to us.

What Should We Do?

With the certainty that another great depression is coming, even though we don’t know when it will happen, we need to get ready. While not everyone loses their jobs and has their lives destroyed by a depression, everyone is affected by it.

The Argentinean collapse of 1999, which is used as a model of what we could expect in our own economic collapse, saw over 2000% inflation, with the peak months showing 200% inflation in one month alone!

During that same collapse, wages increased by less than 250%.

So those who made out the best still found their money not going anywhere near as far and their purchasing power greatly reduced.

The two categories of people who were hit the worst by that collapse were those who worked in industries which provided luxuries and those who were heavily in debt.

Luxury goods stopped selling altogether, not even to the wealthy. So factories and stores which sold those goods shut down. At the same time, those who were heavily in debt couldn’t make their payments and lost everything, including their homes.

Therefore, we don’t want to be part of either of those groups. On the other hand, people who lived out in the country, where they could live off the land, did well, with few of them losing their homes or going hungry.

Get A Secure Job

If you work in an industry where that’s highly affected by the economy, especially one which is selling luxury goods, then it’s time to get out. Find something more secure, such as working in the food industry or making repairs.

When the economy goes south people put off buying new products; they keep the old, spending money on repairing them. So some of the most secure jobs around are providing repair services, whether repairing computers, appliances or cars.

Many of the typically secure jobs will remain secure as well, such as jobs in the medical field and working for the government; although some teachers did lose their jobs in the 2008/2009 hiccup our economy experienced.

Get Out Of Debt

Do whatever you can, to eliminate the debt in your life.

While there may be some dept you can’t get rid of, like your home mortgage, make sure that your mortgage isn’t any higher than it need to be.

If you can, downsize; selling your home and moving into a smaller one, lowering your mortgage payment. If not, then look at refinancing, to see if it will save you money.

More than anything, you want to get rid of other types of debt, as they will make it harder for you to make your house payment.

If the only debt you have is your mortgage, there’s a better chance that you’ll be able to pay it. But if you’re making payments on two cars, credit card debt and the living room furniture, you’re going to be in trouble.

Move, If You Can

The safest place to be in the midst of a financial crisis is a farm. If you can’t buy a small farm or homestead, then living in a small rural community is a good second choice.

Not only is it cheaper to live in those places, but they tend to have lower crime rates.

Crime always spikes during a time of financial crisis, as people who would otherwise obey the law become desperate and turn to crime as a means of getting what they need.

While there were massive food shortages in the cities, during the Argentinean collapse, there was abundant food on the farms. The problem wasn’t production; it was the cost of transport and selling. Inflation was so bad, that stores couldn’t afford to buy the food.

Unless they could sell that food right away, they would be caught in a position where what they could sell it for, wouldn’t provide them with enough money to restock.

Moving to the country also makes it easier to do the next thing that we all need to do, become self-sufficient.

Become Self-Sufficient

The cheapest way to feed your family is to grow the food yourself. While you may not have as much variety and you may miss a lot of your favorites, at least you’ll have food to eat.

With the high potential for food shortages, as I mentioned above, that’s an important part of your family’s survival.

Historically, the people living on farms and homesteads were the least affected by any vagrancies of the economy. While they may not have had a lot of riches, those people always had enough to eat. There’s a lot to be said for that.

Be Ready To Defend Yourself

Finally, be ready to defend home and family. As I mentioned earlier, crime rates tend to increase during times of financial hardship. There was a lot of this which happened during the Argentinean collapse, as people fought to survive.

People learned quickly not to open the doors of their homes, unless it was to someone that they knew.

Even then, they would check the area around their homes, looking for anyone who didn’t belong there, before opening the door.

There was always a chance of someone rushing the door while it was open.

Likewise, they learned not to stop at a red light, unless it was necessary to avoid an accident. Stopped cars became targets, with criminals breaking open windows to grab what they could or to try and hijack the car.

Kidnappings became a cottage industry in this time, with the children of wealthy people becoming prime targets. But they weren’t the only ones. To those who were desperate, anyone with a home was wealthy. Kids couldn’t play outdoors, without an armed adult standing by to watch over them and protect them.

Don’t Forget To Stockpile

Finally, we come back to the basis of all prepping, stockpiling. Food may very well become the best possible investment you can make, as the price of food will lead the inflation race.

Having a good stockpile, going into the depression, may just be what keeps your family eating, while everyone else is struggling to make ends meet.

Ability to Communicate With Others Is Vital In Every Survival Situation: Grid-Down Communication Methods

If you were to ask me what would be the most important things for a survival situation, my first answer would not be a stockpile of food, water, shelter, and other supplies. Although such items may be crucial a reliable method of communication in a grid-down situation is of more importance.

Many preppers would not want to agree with me, but the truth be told. What would be the need to for stockpiles of food in a disastrous situation if emergency crews cannot learn of your case?

If you can reach your loved ones or the emergency crew, you can easily find the other supplies such as food, shelter, water, and fire making items among others from them.

Furthermore, establishing a reliable communication method in a grid-down situation can provide you with numerous other benefits. You can listen to and monitor the official communication channels to gather news on the emergency.

A suitable communication method is also vital is the emergency separated you from your loved ones. It offers the only way for you to confirm their status and to know how the crisis has affected them. The piece of mind you get you from knowing your loved ones are okay help boost your resolve to survive.

Important below:

You might be living in one of America’s deathzones and not have a clue about it
What if that were you? What would YOU do?

In the next few minutes, I’m going to show you the U.S. Nuclear Target map, where you’ll find out if you’re living in one of America’s Deathzones.

Available Off-Grid Communications Systems

In natural calamity or terrorist attack, the first thing that suffers is electricity supply. Depending on the disaster, restoring power can take several weeks, months and even years.

Anything powered by electricity will die. Therefore, you must devise ingenious ways to establish communication. Here are a few off-grid communications systems at your disposal.

Cell Phones

In an emergency, your cell-phone might still have power, or you may have a backup power bank. Unfortunately, your cell phone may not work because the disaster could have destroyed to cell tower close to you. Even so, some cell towers have backup generators designed to kick in f the grid goes down.

This does not mean you cannot try to establish communication using your cell phone. You might get lucky. A cell-phone should be your priority. It is affordable, portable, convenient, easy to use and can reach any geographical location in the world. Even text messages can go through if calls cannot work.

Land Lines

The old corded landlines may be out of fashion in our homes but not in emergencies. They are vital in an off-grid situation. If you do not know it, landlines get the power they need from the phone lines. This means they can function even of the main electric grid is disrupted.

Reserving a landline phone for off-grid communication is peppers’ golden goose. Unlike cell phones that need cell towers, landline phones use a less complex mechanism. Even more beautiful is the fact that such systems are not prone to congestion as cell phone networks. VOIP phones may look like landline phones, but they cannot work without electricity.

Satellite Phones

An extremely reliable communication system for off-grid is the satellite phones. These unique phones do not use cell towers. Instead of connecting to the terrestrial cell types, satellite phones connect to the orbiting satellites. Although advanced, these phones still provide similar functionality as regular cell phones. You can send SMS, make calls and even access the internet.

So long as the sky is clear or partially cloudy, satphones can reach anywhere in the earth or just specific regions.  These devices operate on a subscription-based model. Therefore, they are most commonly ideal for expeditions to remote locations or professional outdoor guiding.

Nevertheless, some modern models are engineered for more casual use. They let you pay a modest monthly or single-time fee and send SMS out via the satellite. These devices may be expensive but incredibly great for a backup communications system.

Special Off-Grid Communication Devices

The current advancement in technology has led to the production of a few communication devices made with preppers in mind. Here are four such advanced gadgets for off-grid communication:

goTenna Mesh

This device turns terrestrial cell-phones paired with it into a self-sufficient mesh network that can operate free from the bottlenecks of network resources, mobile reception, and power. It offers complete privacy. goTenna Mesh was developed in 2012 following Hurricane Sandy.

Beartooth Smart Walkie Talkie

Another fantastic off-grid communication device is the Beartooth Smart Walkie Talkie. The tool lets you speak with another other people using your cell phone without the need for a signal.

The technology is similar to that of Bluetooth.  As for the range, voice calls can only reach people who are 5 miles away. Text messages have a range of up to 10 miles.

Gotoky Secure Off-Grid Communication Device

Gotoky is another modern off-grid communication device that can prove helpful in a survival situation. The tool allows you to pair your Smartphone with it so that you can send text and voice messages, create a mesh network, group text-based and voice-based messaging.

It also allows for emergency location beacon activation, real-time tracking, and navigation, recording routes as well as sharing GPS locations.  All the messages are entirely encrypted.

Fogo Adventure Off-Grid Device

The Fogo off-grid device allows you to communicate with others without an active signal. You can use it with your Smartphone, but it also comes with a number of great features that make it ideal for off-grid communication.

The most important of these features is the 1200 lumens LED flashlight, a 6800 mAh USB backup battery, a motion sensor, a fitness tracker, a waypoint navigation system, a crash detection system, bike computer, and Bluetooth speaker for communication purposes.

IN ONE HOUR EVERYTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE- The prophet Isaiah warns us that in the last days God is going to “turn the world upside down.”

The prophet Isaiah warns us that in the last days God is going to “turn the world upside down.” He declares, “Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down” (Isaiah 24:1).

According to this prophecy, sudden judgment is coming upon the earth, and it will change everything in a single hour. Within that short span, the whole world will witness fast-falling destruction upon a city and a nation, and the world will never be the same.

If you are attached to material things — if you love this world and the things of it — you won’t want to hear what Isaiah has prophesied. In fact, even to the most righteous of God’s people, what Isaiah says might seem unthinkable. Many would surely ask, “How can an entire world be stricken in one hour?”

If we didn’t believe the Bible is God’s pure Word, few of us would take Isaiah’s prophecy seriously. But Scripture makes it clear: in a single hour, the world is going to change. The church is going to change. And every individual on earth is going to change.

The apostle John gives a similar warning in Revelation. He speaks of destructive judgment coming upon a city and nation: “In one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her…. For in one hour so great riches is come to nought” (Revelation 18:8, 17).

In Isaiah’s prophecy, the city under judgment is cast into confusion. Every house is shut up, with no one coming or going. “The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in” (Isaiah 24:10). The entire city is left desolate: “In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction” (24:12). All entrances and exits to the city are gone. The passage indicates that a fire has come, a blast that has shaken the very foundations of the earth (see 24:6).

We who live in New York City know something about this kind of scene. When the Twin Towers were attacked, the ominous fires and smoke could be seen ascending to heaven for miles. Recently, New Yorkers panicked as a mass of steam erupted from below a city street. People ran in all directions screaming, “Is this it? Is this the end-all attack?”

Today, multitudes of secular prophets are saying a nuclear attack is inevitable. The target they mention most often is New York, but it could happen in any major city: London, Paris, Tel Aviv, Washington. Neither Isaiah nor John names the city upon which destructive judgment falls.I don’t intend this message to frighten anyone.

Let me make clear at this point: I don’t intend this message to frighten anyone. Paul tells us that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we have already passed from death into life. We who call on Jesus as Lord should be confident that no matter what happens in this world, his shed blood saves and redeems us.

Therefore, we are not to fear any newscast, but rather to be attentive to what the Lord is doing in the world. Like many people, I hear grievous reports that make me want to tune everything out. But the truth is, God moves in the midst of such times, and through them he speaks warnings to all who would hear his voice.Isaiah’s prophecy points clearly to our generation.

I believe, along with many eminent Bible scholars, that Isaiah’s prophecy points to the last days. By that, I mean our present time. In short, sudden judgment is coming, and Scripture strongly indicates it is now at the door.

At this point you may be wondering: “How can we be sure we’re the generation this prophecy points to?” We can know by two reasons that such judgments are imminent:

1.A growing number of prophets warn of an apocalyptic disaster at the door. When I use the word “prophets,” I speak not just of those in the church. I’m talking also about “secular prophets.”

There are several precedents for secular prophets in Scripture. God used Assyria as his rod of correction with Israel. And he appointed King Cyrus as his servant to assist Israel: “(The Lord) saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure” (Isaiah 44:28).

Likewise today, God uses secular prophets to send warnings. These become “his prophets” for a season. And their prophecies can be harder than those delivered by believers. The message I’m writing here is mild compared to the prophecies being delivered by all manner of secular voices. Just check your newspaper or radio reports.

“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).

2.Sudden destruction comes when the cup of violence overflows. Sensuality, perversion and greed are running rampant throughout our society. Yet, when God sent the Flood upon the earth, it was because of a worldwide eruption of violence: “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence” (Genesis 6:11).

Right now, there are numerous wars and bloody uprisings taking place around the globe. Yet foremost in my mind is the violence being waged against children worldwide:

  • I think of the sexual violence of pedophiles. Children all over the world are being raped, kidnapped and forced into enslavement in the global sex trade. Recently, a pedophile in the U.S. was discovered running a web site that advises other pedophiles on the easiest places to pick up children. There is no law in place to stop this man. The world’s largest church denomination has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to settle the claims of those who were molested in childhood by clergy. Tell me, how long will God endure the pitiful cries of children who are molested by those who would represent Christ?
  • Thousands of children in Africa are being slaughtered in tribal wars, hacked to death by machetes. Young boys — even those under ten years of age — are enlisted into tribal militias and forced to murder men in initiation rites.
  • Here in the U.S., the blood of millions of aborted babies cries out from the ground.
  • Reports of school murders no longer shock many of us but continue to terrorize our children. We may grow hardened to such reports, but God’s heart is grieved by them.

I tell you, there is no worse violence than the brutalizing of children. Heaven is crying out, “Woe, woe! Your judgments have no cure.”1. In one hour, God is going to change the whole world.

A sudden cataclysmic event will strike, the first of the final judgments of God. This great event will cause the earth to reel. And Isaiah says that when it hits, there will be no place to escape: “The lofty [proud] city, he layeth it low…even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust” (Isaiah 26:5). “The inhabitants of the earth are burned” (24:6).

Once this happens, utter chaos will erupt. All civic activities will stop, and society will descend into massive disorder. Government agencies will be helpless to restore any kind of sanity. No state troopers, no national guard, no army will be able to bring order to the upheaval.

You well remember that when the Twin Towers were destroyed, help poured into New York from all over the world. An army of people came to assist in whatever way they could. But the scene in Isaiah’s prophecy is different: this calamity is clearly beyond humankind’s capacity to respond.

Once this judgment strikes, it will devastate the economy. Rich merchants will stand by watching in torment, weeping and mourning, as they face bankruptcy. In an instant, all the wealth they amassed will be reduced to nothing. John describes the scene: “The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city… For in one hour so great riches is come to nought” (Revelation 18:15–17).

Overnight, all buying and selling will cease. Every restaurant and bar will be shut down, and all drinking and music making will end. Indeed, every trace of mirth and delight, joy and gladness, will vanish: “All the merryhearted do sigh. The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. They shall not drink wine with a song…. The mirth of the land is gone” (Isaiah 24:7–9, 11).

Yes, this is a picture of gloom and doom. But it is not my prophecy. This word was given by the Holy Spirit of Almighty God, to be delivered by his righteous prophet Isaiah. Even the secular world is preparing for it to happen. Billions are being spent on homeland security in the U.S., England, Europe and Israel. Why? Military experts warn that a world-impacting terrorist attack is sure to come.

You may ask: “Why would the whole world change, if a nuclear attack occurs in just one city?” It will happen because of the fear of retaliation. If a rogue nation sends such an attack, you can be sure that within hours that nation will be wiped out. Consider the plan Israel has in place, known as the Samson Option. The moment a nuclear warhead is launched against them, within moments Israel will unleash nuclear missiles to devastate the capital cities of all enemy states.

The world has become a ticking bomb, and time is quickly running out.2. In one hour, God is going to change the church.

This hour of devastation will suddenly change churches, whether they are alive or dead. Isaiah writes, “There shall be the shaking as of an olive tree” (Isaiah 24:13). The image is of God shaking an olive tree after it has been picked of fruit. In short, he’s going to shake everything that can be shaken, sparing nothing. It will be a time of cataclysmic destruction and overwhelming darkness.

So, you ask, “What about God’s people in the midst of all this? What will happen to the church?” Isaiah gives us an incredible word about what will happen with believers.

In the midst of the terrible shaking, a song will be heard, and its sound will grow steadily stronger. Suddenly, in that darkest of hours, a worldwide chorus of voices will sing praises to the majesty of God: “They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea” (24:14).

Do you get the picture? There will be panic everywhere. Men’s hearts will fail them for fear, as fires belch smoke seen for hundreds of miles. Disorder and chaos will reign on all sides. Yet amid the devastating fires and calamity, the world will hear a glorious song being sung: “Glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel… From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous [One]” (Isaiah 24:15–16).

A holy remnant is going to awaken, and a song will be born in the fire. Instead of panicking, the people of God will be praising his awesome majesty. Imagine it: in the darkest hour of all time, a collective voice will rise by the millions out of every nation, not in fear or agony, but in joyful praise to the Lord.

How will this happen, you ask? In one hour, God is going to regenerate and restore his church. Dry bones will shake and rattle, and the righteous will be awakened, as the Holy Spirit calls multitudes of lukewarm believers back to their first love. In his mercy, he’s going to rouse those who have neglected him, ignoring his Word, avoiding prayer, perhaps even contemplating divorce. Suddenly, their souls will be flooded with pangs of remorse and godly sorrow. And many will fall on their knees, crying out in repentance.

There will be a revival of glorifying God’s majesty. And the song of this revival will be heard from the uttermost parts of the earth. East, west, north and south — from Arab lands to China, Indonesia, Africa and all parts of the earth — a glorious song will rise up from the midst of the fires. In one day’s time, those who survived the fires are going to be singing a new song throughout the world.Isaiah 25 tells us wonderful miracles will come in this time, as “God makes all things new.”

All around the world, the Lord’s people are going to “feast” on his Word: “In this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined” (Isaiah 25:6).

“And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations” (25:7). Right now, in this time of prosperity, the world’s masses seem to be covered with a veil, unable to see the truth of Jesus Christ. But when God rises up to shake the world through judgment, the shrouds covering the minds of billions will be cast aside. The veil of darkness will be removed, and many will see the Lord in his glory. The Holy Spirit won’t force Christ upon these opened eyes and hearts; rather, a remnant is going to rise up from among them.

I believe the darkest shroud-coverings today are over the eyes and hearts of youth worldwide. This is especially true of college-age students, whose faith has been bombarded for up to four years. Over that time their minds have been indoctrinated by godless professors in classrooms where belief is attacked, mocked and scorned. Now these young men’s and women’s faith has been shipwrecked. They leave college convinced God is dead.

But in one hour of devastation — nuclear, economic and social — all such hypocritical veils are going to fall away. Those same professors who mocked them will realize, as they face the possibility of death, a choice must be made: “What about eternity? Is there life after death?” They’re going to look for someone to explain to them all that’s happening.

When the song is sung, it’s going to be heard by young people from every walk of life, from every nation under the sun. Many will harden their hearts and curse God at the sound of this song, but multitudes of others will join in singing of his majesty.3. In one hour, God is going to change us as individuals.

In a single hour, the focus of our lives will be changed. We’ll no longer obsess about our own adversities and troubles. Suddenly, so many things that we held dear will no longer be of any value to us. Why? In that hour, everyone will be in the same boat:

“It shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him” (Isaiah 24:2).

The sudden judgment that comes will not be a respecter of anyone. Rather, it is going to touch all who are within the realm of its fury. Presidents, kings, the world’s richest and most famous — all will tremble just like the poorest of the earth. And this cataclysmic event will bring to naught every idol, purging iniquity and tearing down all false altars:

“By this [the calamity] therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up [be left standing]” (Isaiah 27:9).

The world’s most prominent idol is money, and right now America is facing a monstrous financial disaster. Investors are scrambling to move their money out of high-risk funds, and mortgage companies are going bankrupt. One recent financial headline read, “Abandon Ship!” Everyone is selling and nobody is buying. Many households are in a panic, as overnight their lives are changing. I think of the president of a multi-billion-dollar hedge fund, who recently put up for sale his 142-foot yacht and his sixteen-bedroom mansion in Aspen, Colorado. His fund had dried up virtually overnight.

The day is coming when sports will be the last thing on people’s minds. I have nothing against sports, but soon there will be no more 250-million-dollar deals for athletes, when so much of the world is starving. All idols will come crashing down, crushed to dust, and the playing field will be leveled. The richest and the poorest alike will face the same conditions.

It will all happen within a day. “When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).Why such apocalyptic warnings?

You may wonder: what good can come of these prophetic messages? Why should anyone have to live under such anxiety?

I remind you, Jesus warned Jerusalem of sudden devastation to come upon that city. It was going to be burned to the ground, with over a million people murdered. Christ explained his warning: “I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe” (John 14:29). He was saying, in essence, “When it happens, you’ll know there is a God who loves you and forewarned you.”

Paul calls such warnings “light,” insights that expel darkness. He says, in short: “You are children of light, because you know what’s coming in the future. So, when destruction comes, and there’s panic all around, you will have the calm of the Holy Spirit. Something will quicken inside you, and you’ll remember, ‘God warned me.’ This prophecy isn’t a message of wrath to God’s people, but a wakeup call to begin preparing.”

“God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him” (1 Thessalonians 5:9–10). Paul is speaking here of a time of possible destruction. Therefore, he says, “Comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do” (5:11).

In this day of prosperity, nobody wants to hear a message like Isaiah’s. I certainly don’t want to hear it. But we cannot ignore it, because it is here at our door. In such times, Paul says, when we have knowledge that sudden destruction is coming, we are not to tremble or sorrow as the world does. Instead, we are to comfort one another in faith, knowing that God rules over every aspect of our lives.

“Be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation” (5:8). Paul instructs, “Arm yourself with faith. Build up your belief now, before the day comes. Learn your song, and you’ll be able to sing it in your fire.” “Glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel” (Isaiah 24:15).

This is the hope of our most holy faith: our Lord causes a song to come out of the darkest of times. Start now to build up your holy faith in him, and learn to praise his majesty quietly in your heart. When you sing your song, it will strengthen and encourage your brothers and sisters. And it will testify to the world: “Our Lord reigns over the Flood!” ■

Protecting Yourself From an EMP or CME (90% of the worlds currency is digitized. In 2008 the EMP commission stated that should an attack occur 90% of the US population would die within 12 months from starvation, disease and social unrest.)

First let’s take a look at Electromagnetic Pulse. An Electromagnetic Pulse or EMP for short is a short burst of electromagnetic energy. These bursts of energy can happen by natural or man-made events and can knock out the entire power grid and can temporarily or permanently take out electronic equipment. Although there does not seem to be a definitive answer as to whether or not it will disable your vehicle, with all the electronics onboard vehicles today I wouldn’t bet the house that yours would still be running. If you think it may just be inconvenient to be without power but we will still be okay, think again. This would have an incredible economic impact as well and not just in the harm it would do to industries. Consider this, over 90% of the worlds currency is digitized. In 2008 the EMP commission stated that should an attack occur 90% of the US population would die within 12 months from starvation, disease and social unrest.

Most people believe that an EMP would be delivered by some hostile foreign government in the form of a nuclear bomb. You may think this type of scenario is unlikely until you start to look into some rather disturbing facts. During the early 1960’s the Soviet Union began EMP tests over Kazakhstan in the form of nuclear bombs exploded at various altitudes and various kilotons known as K-3 or test 184.This gives the Russians a tremendous amount of data and experience. Russia has the capability of delivering such a device in the form of a nuclear bomb, scud missile and a device the size of a small suitcase. In fact Russia has already used tactical EMP warheads attached to mortars while fighting Chechen rebels.

In 2006 and again in 2009 North Korea tested a Russian design, “Super-EMP” weapon. On December 12, 2012 North Korea launched a KSM-3 satellite which has an orbit that passes directly over the eastern half of the United States. The satellite is the correct size and weight of a small nuclear warhead.

In recent years Iranian military documents were found and describe EMP scenarios against the United States as well as a text-book that endorses such attacks. This text-book also discusses 20 different places to launch such an attack in the US.

A Coronal Mass Ejection or CME is a cloud of particles ejected from the sun’s surface during a solar flare that may create a magnetic storm on earth. When these charged particles collide with atoms in the earth’s upper atmosphere we get Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. Although this may be a beautiful sight to behold this has the potential to cause devastating effects here on earth. On September 1, 1859, astronomers Richard Carrington and Richard Hodgson observed and recorded a massive solar flare. This created an Aurora that could be seen as far south as Cuba and Honolulu and took out telegraph systems throughout Europe and the North America. It was even reported that some telegraph operators received shocks from their equipment due to the CME. Today we rely on far more sensitive equipment on a daily basis throughout the world than just telegraph wires. Almost everything we do is somehow tied to computers and the internet.

How do we protect ourselves from these real threats when it seems that almost everything we do depends on the grid and our electronic equipment. Although things would be very different for sure there are some things we can do. One such example are micro grids. Micro grids are basically small electricity distribution centers that collect energy from varied sources and can be grid tied or not. They are essentially tiny power plants for small communities, large buildings, industrial plants, off grid and single family homes. The generators which would be needed to produce energy when the other sources such as solar panels or wind turbines are not producing, can be shielded. One inherent problem could be finding fuel for those generators. You would need to purchase either EMP hardened solar panels or EMP suppressors to protect your solar panels and or wind turbines. EMP suppressors essentially work as a shield around an area. These units can absorb 90%-95% of an incoming EMP wave.

A Faraday Cage or Faraday Shield is an enclosure or mesh of conductive material that blocks electric fields. Although this may not keep the circuits in your home from being damaged it will protect valuable electronics such as cell phones, computers, tablets or radios from damage. These types of items may prove invaluable in a grid down situation. It is a very good idea to keep as much useful information as possible on these devices. You need to include a way to charge these things in your Faraday Cage as well, if they are dead they aren’t going to be of much use. You can purchase Faraday Cages or you can make your own they are fairly easy to construct in just a few minutes using something like a metal garbage can with a lid and some sort of insulating material. Compared to other options this is probably the least expensive.

Some other things to consider when prepping for an EMP or CME event are things like water, food and fuel. Most water sent to your home is sent through pumps, so no electric, no pumps, no water. Make sure you have water stored and a way to replenish it. If you have your own well the same thing applies you should make sure that you have a manual pump to get water from your well. You will of course need food especially food that does not need refrigeration. Fuel is like water it has to be pumped from tanks underground to your vehicle. With no electricity you are not going to be able to fill your tank. If you are able to store fuel that would be ideal. If you choose to store fuel be very careful to keep it away from any sort of ignition source, it goes without saying it can be extremely dangerous. You will also need to add a gas stabilizer if you are going to store it for more than six months and you will need to rotate it at least once a year if not more. Just like with anything else we do to prepare there are a lot of things to take into consideration.

Many Economists Believe That Another Great Depression It’s Likely To Happen This Year. ‘The World Faces Unprecedented Hunger Crisis’. Millions People Will Be Pushed Into Extreme Poverty

The Great Depression of the 1930s is burned into most preppers’ minds. The horror stories from that grim time are a stark reminder of how fast things can go bad, even in a country that seems rich, strong and confident – and of how bad they can get.

As a motivation to be prepared, the Great Depression takes some beating.

But what if, as well as a reminder of why prepping is a good idea, it’s also what we need to be preparing for?

Many economists believe that another Great Depression could throw the world back into the poverty and chaos of the dustbowl era, and some think it’s likely to happen this year.

Paranoid? Alarmist? Well, they have a lot of evidence on their side – too much to just dismiss.

Technically, the Great Depression lasted for four years, from 1929 to 1933. In reality, it took until 1940 for US GDP to recover to its 1929 level, and even then unemployment was still at 15%. Only the militarization of the economy for World War II finally swept away the Great Depression’s after-effects.

Is A New Depression Coming?

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, it threw the US economy into recession in a matter of days. In the second quarter of 2020, US GDP fell by 31.4% – one of the fastest and deepest falls ever.

However, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the 2020 recession was also the shortest ever; officially, it lasted just two months. Technically it was too short to qualify as a recession at all.

There’s a lot more to the story than that, though. Our economy has bounced back a long way from the damage lockdown did, but it’s still in deep trouble – and the government is storing up even more trouble for the future. There are a lot of pieces moving behind the scenes, and if they line up wrong a depression could hit us fast and hard.

A lot of Americans are still jobless. In June 2021 the unemployment rate stood at 5.9%. That’s a long way down from its 14.7% peak last April – but a long way up from the 3.5% we had last February. Millions of Americans who were working 18 months ago are unemployed now, and the growth in jobs seems to have slowed.

Unemployment fell by 7% in the six months after the April peak, but only 1.9% in the next nine months. The June 2021 figure was actually slightly up on May, which alarmed economists who’d been expecting another small drop.

Despite unemployment that in normal times would be a national scandal, the government is paying people to sit at home. In many states, the jobless can still claim an extra $300 a month in federal assistance. If you were in a low-paid job, regular unemployment plus an extra $300 might just be enough that you don’t really want to go back to work.

Unfortunately, businesses need low-paid employees too – and having so many of them out of work is slowing our economic recovery.

The Danger of Inflation

Of course, all that extra unemployment benefit has to be paid for, and the government is paying for it by printing money. The stimulus checks sent to every American home also had to be paid for, and the government printed the money for those too. The huge “stimulus” and “infrastructure” bills the government is enacting? A lot of that money will be printed, and the rest borrowed.

The trouble is, creating or borrowing that much new money doesn’t make the country richer; it makes each dollar less valuable. There’s a shortage of vacant homes, so people have to pay more to buy or rent one. That causes inflation and a weaker dollar.

As the dollar gets weaker, imported goods cost more. We import oil, so that means gas costs more. And that’s if you can afford a car to put the gas in, because we import a lot of cars too.

As imports get more expensive, the supply of domestic goods can’t keep up – so prices rise. Employers have to pay more for energy and raw materials, which pushes prices up more. High gas costs for transport get added to prices, which go up again. There are more dollars in the economy, but we can’t buy as much.

So, the government passes laws to raise the minimum wage – which means employers have to raise prices even more. After a certain point it all starts to feed on itself, and inflation isn’t just rising anymore; it takes off like a rocket.


Right now, our money supply is inflating by about a billion dollars every hour. Our national debt is rising so quickly that, if you look at it in real time, the last five digits are changing too fast to follow. By 2025 we’ll be spending more on debt interest than we do on defense.

Sometime beyond that, maybe in the 2030s, debt interest will match, then exceed, tax revenues. We’ll need to borrow – or print – more money just to pay the interest on what we’ve already borrowed.

But will we even make it that far? On July 28, Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell admitted that inflation is rising – and could go further than the Fed had predicted. If the government keeps pumping new money into the system inflation will spiral out of control this year. There are signs that it’s already happening.

House prices are up 23% in just one year. Used car prices are up 45%. Farmers say even the cost of a bale of hay has risen 20% in the last twelve months. That’s all pushing the inflation figures upwards, and it might already be too late for the government to push the lid back down.

Smart preppers will be ready for the next Great Depression to hit very, very soon.

How Bad Could It Be?

The original Great Depression was bad – but if one hits now it will be much, much worse. In 1929 the global economy was nowhere near as interconnected as it is today. If inflation keeps rising the weak dollar will cripple the US economy – and we can’t pay for a New Deal-style program to get it moving again.

On top of that we’re much more dependent on power and communications than our ancestors were. Can you imagine a life without electricity?

Well, if you want to survive the next depression you need to figure that in. Can you work without the internet? Can you access your bank account if your cell phone app stops working?

Final Words

Getting through the next depression is going to mean prepping for the long term. Three months’ worth of food won’t be enough, because the depression will last for years. You need to be looking at livestock, and the ability to grow your own crops.

When you look at electricity generation, consider wind, water and solar power – they don’t rely on fuel that might become unaffordable.

If we want to make it through a crash like the 1929 generation, we’ll need many of the skills and tools they had. Are you prepared for that?
