Deadly meteor showers are just one of the hazards of the coming Tribulation.
The first thing you need to realize is that if you didn’t make it in the Rapture, then your chances of physically surviving the Tribulation are not good. Not good at all! Without God, you won’t survive the Tribulation, no matter what you do (Revelation 14:20 and Genesis 7:21).
But even those who make a genuine and sincere conversion to Christianity don’t have much of a chance of survival. Frankly, your physical survival is not high on God’s list of priorities. In all likelihood, you’ll die as a martyr by being beheaded. But at least as a Christian, you’ll have a chance of survival, which is better than nothing. And if you die, you go to Heaven, so really, it’s all good, no matter how bad it looks. Nevertheless let’s strive for survival.
So with survival as the goal, here are some tips for surviving the Tribulation:
- First of all, be very careful about who you trust. Jesus told us that there will come a time when people will put true Christians to death, thinking that they are doing a service to God, (John 16:2). And that includes your closest family and friends.
- Go underground. By that I mean get off the grid, hide yourself. You should start looking for a place as soon as you possibly can.
- Be smart about hiding because now there are so many ways of finding people. You’re going to have to get rid of all cell phones, tablets, GPS navigational devices, and computers. I know that’s really hard to imagine, but look at it this way, which would you rather keep: your phone or your head?
- Choose a place that’s fertile, remote, and very sparsely populated.
- Dig a well. And by dig a well, I mean hire somebody with the proper equipment to dig it for you—it must be good and deep.
- Get a generator, but understand this: you’re going to have to give up most of your electronics. Most generators run off gasoline and are noisy, which is a really bad idea when you’re trying to keep your presence a secret. So I recommend building your own bicycle-powered generator. This gives you a way to stay in shape, keep warm in the winter, and have a little electricity for essentials like a hot plate (a camp stove requires fuel), heating and refrigeration.
- Learn food preservation skills like canning, freeze-drying, drying, fermenting, pickling, and dry salt curing. Also knitting and/or crocheting are good skills to know.
- Get yourself a good survival book. Here’s a link to a free, downloadable e–book: S. Army Field Manual on Survival.
Even more important than those skills, I recommend cultivating a close relationship with God. Although, your survival isn’t high on His list of priorities, remember that He is the Lord of Life. If you play it smart and stay close to Him, you greatly improve your chances of survival. The Holy Spirit is far better than any security camera or electric fence for keeping unwanted people out. You can even ask Him for invisibility. He did it for me (see The Retroactive Power of Invisibility).
Believe me, it will be far better to go in the Rapture. But if you find yourself left behind, I hope and pray that these survival tips will help you to stay alive. God is good!
