IT'S NEVER TOO
This afternoon while stacking bricks, my mind danced away to more
stimulating arenas. I drifted back to an e-mail received shortly
after Stan and I moved to rural Ballarat in May. "Suzy", probably
well-meaning, publicly stated we had begun too late in our emergency
preparations. Being part Irish, my initial mental response was "and what business was it of hers" followed by "she has no
clue what we've already accomplished!" If we were 'no-hopers'
at this stage, what about the folks just now waking up? How would
they feel hearing this? I became irritated all over again at the
Suzies of the world committing a big no-no -- taking away people's hope.
Many people have written letters of thanks for the information
posted or for Stan's Shaker Maps or the newsletters, etc. What
saddens us are letters from people who are without funds to provide
storables or hampered by ill health or have spouses who refuse
to acknowledge these dangerous times or people frustrated with
zero storage space. How do we help those folks?
The answer isn't easy unless we turn to God for help. We are looking at many potential disasters dead in the eye; worsening El Ninos and even more erratic weather, earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding, volcanoes, biowarfare, terrorism, building Middle East tensions, hurricane season (which is expected to be "interesting" for the next decade), heatwaves, impending stock market adjustment/crash, asteroid/meteor impact, the numbering, New World Order, Armageddon, new and mutating viruses, civil unrest, martial law, corrupt governments. IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE A SANE PERSON LOSE IT!
With odds stacked against us, humanity isn't going to come out
a winner unless he is a Believer. When overwhelming thoughts of
these challenges get the upper hand, it's because I've slipped
back into the driver's seat and temporarily relegated God to passenger
status. New Age folks might term it as "not living in the light"
or "not living in love". Whatever the point of reference, we are
momentarily not living in the manner we should, allowing fear
to take over.
Here are two experiences excerpted from "Gail's Story - Visions
of the Latter Days" by Allyn L. Rigby, August 21, 1996 illustrating
the power of Faith and God's guidance:
"She (Gail) has shared with me (Allyn) three separate scenarios
shown to her that illustrate the ways in which the Lord will save
those who turn to Him. She was in her home and saw about 6 armed
troops enter her home searching for food, weapons, ammo, etc.
She also knew they had orders to arrest her and that if she were
taken she would be killed. She prayed in her mind, "Lord, if it
be thy will that I am not to die at this time, please save me
and tell me what to do." The spirit told her to tell the men not
to touch her or they would die. They laughed and one man grabbed
her. Immediately he fell dead at her feet. W th a few minutes
the others had convinced themselves that the first man's death
was just a coincidence, that he had a bad heart or something.
A second man started to go for her at which time she said "Please
don't touch me or you'll die." He ignored the warning, grabbed
her and immediately fell dead at her feet. The remaining men got
out of there as fast as they could.
In another scenario she saw the wild animals coming down out of
the mountains, killing and eating people. Among these animals
she saw groups of mountain lions, four to six to a group. (Traveling
in groups is not normal behavior for these solitary and timid
cats.) One of these groups of cougars approached her. Not knowing
what to do, she thought, "Well praying worked before", so once
again she prayed, "Lord, if it be thy will that I'm not to die
at this time please save me and tell me what to do." The spirit
said, "Reach out your hand and pet the front mountain lion on
the head." She thought to herself, "Sure I will!", but she did
it anyway. The animal immediately began rubbing against her like
a house cat, rolling over, etc. and the other animals did the
same. The people in the area who saw this became terrified of
Gail and fled. Gail says that this is why the scriptures say that
people are afraid to go up against Zion for God is with them.
Then the Spirit said, "I have showed you the great power that
I am willing to exercise on behalf of one person, think what I
will do for a group of people who come to me."
With the amount of potential chaos facing us, it is unreasonably
optimistic to think we are all going to escape unscathed. Conversely,
NONE of us know when these events will strike nor with what force
nor where. In light of this timetable question, it is NEVER too
late to begin. Do what you can with the means at your disposal.
Have Faith in God to provide the rest and do what you can to wake
those around you.
A friend who is in civil emergency preparedness once stated. "The
worst threat I see in any disaster is the willingness of those
who did not prepare ahead to harm those who did, and the unwillingness
of those who prepared to assist those who didn't. I want to use
my skills and planning to benefit not only my family, but my community.
I want to know others who feel the same way." Well, David, so
do I and wish we were neighbors!
It is NEVER too late unless you lose sight of God or give up.
