Following the rise of the revived Roman Empire predicted in the Bible.
What should we do
Watch and pray my friend. God will soon unveil all of the loose ends for us
We need to do more to prepare, I think. Part of watching is being prepared. If I see a rain cloud coming and don't get an umbrella then only observing it was pointless. We need to be ready, don't you think??
Logical for sure. What types of preparations do you advise?
I believe in preparing spiritually as well as physically. There is a culture of "prepping" that I believe misses the point in many ways, and is thus stigmatized and ridiculed, often justly. However, there is also some validity to the logic of practical preparedness. If we are right with Christ and actively seeking His will in our lives on a personal level (which should be the first priority), then I believe that practical preparedness is a worthy endeavor. For me and my family, this looks like basic medical training, keeping a good stock of medicines, canned goods, and dried food rations, in addition to firearms safety training in conjunction with basic survival skills training. We practice these things out of our rural homestead where we are largely self-sustaining. It is important to constantly emphasize that our ultimate hope is not in any of these things, but in Christ and His power. "The horse is made ready for the day of the battle, but victory belongs to the Lord"- Proverbs 21:31. God orchestrates the victory, yet readying the horse is still necessary. I am thankful for you showing us these signs of the times so that we know what we are readying ourselves for.
