END TIME PREPPERS
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

that documents the preparations of these people on the National Geographic
Network called Doomsday Preppers.

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.

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.
