END TIME PREPPERS

       There is a growing movement in America known as the survivalist movement or the prepper movement. These people are convinced that major disruptions in the social and political order in the world are coming and they intend to be prepared. There are conventions and books and websites and video instructional courses. As a movement it is growing with an estimated 3 million people (preppers) currently in the United States alone. There is even a popular television show that documents the preparations of these people on the National Geographic Network called Doomsday Preppers.

I certainly do not disparage the preparations of these people today. (If you are a prepper, all I ask is that you give your pastor a key to your bunker!) However, when we come to the certainty of the end times we are called to face them differently than those of the world. In almost everything the members of the Kingdom of God are to face life’s challenges differently than those who are of the kingdoms of this world. This applies to the end times as well. We are not called to "hunker in the bunker" but rather engage the culture and present the Gospel as the only hope for a rebellious and sinful people. Ultimately, we are not called to go down (in the earth) for safety, but rather be prepared to go up (in the heavens) for deliverance from the evil of this world.

 

This message series teaches us how to be prepared as well as how to read the powerful signs of the times that demand preparation from God’s people.

 

God’s people have always been called to prepare in the face of judgment. Noah prepared an ark when God’s wrath seemed like a joke to the worldly people. John the Baptist called the people to preparation in light of the long awaited Messiah among a culture who had become very worldly in their outlook. The church is called to preparation as well in the middle of a culture that ridicules holiness and the things of God.

 

Preparation leads to Peace and Power. These are the two most important characteristics you can possess in the last days. If you’re in need of either- this series is for you!
