Preparedness from a Christian Perspective

As a Christian Martialist you prepare yourself to defend those you care about from the orcs among us. Hopefully, you have a kit, no matter how small, that you have assembled for every day carry (EDC) to carry you through potential emergencies. Beyond, this, have you considered your level of preparedness  for longer term emergencies?

The Bible has warned to prepare for political disintegration -- doth the crown endure to all generations? -- as well as economic collapse -- riches are not forever.

Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens. Proverbs 27:23-27

Yesterday, my wife and I listened to an interview of Don Kobler, known on Youtube as SouthernPrepper1. If you are new to the idea of preparedness, I highly recommend this introduction from a Biblical perspective:

Prepping and God's Providence

He's a prepper, she's a prepper. Wouldn't you like to be a prepper, too?

I suppose that all of us should be prepared in some way for a long term emergency should it arise. Our liberal news agencies are telling the terrorists how easy it would be to take out our power grids and poison our drinking water. I shudder at the thought of that happening. No electricity for an extended amount of time would virtually cripple our nation. The scene in Ferguson MO would be played out in a city near you. I know several serious preppers and have had some discussions with them about it. We need to start stocking up some extra food, water and cash in case this does come to pass.
