Since the year of 2006 the following word has been shared repeatedly, "Ambush response will become the way of the land." You now see teachers in our schools being armed and trained in active shooter ambush response. Why? Could it be the silence from our seeker friendly pulpits?
2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
This is a profound description of the moral character of our time written to the church. This represents a prophetic warning to our generation. Yes, God's protection is there for us but faith without works is dead. I have faith that the prophetic statements inspired by God Himself in II Timothy require that I do what I can through prayer and supplication seeking Godly guidance.
The Citizen Responder is the real first responder to any crisis situation, including an active shooter incident. Educate yourself, train and never believe the myth that those in law enforcement are more qualified than a well trained voluntary Citizen Responder defending their home, friends, loved ones and family. We salute law enforcement and their unmitigated bravery, but the Supreme Court ruled that their role is not to protect you. That role was given to you in the 2nd Amendment.
God established our government of the people and by the people that shall not perish from this earth; endowed with certain (never in question) inalienable rights (that cannot be transferred or surrendered). In this nation we have no Caesars, but "In God We Trust". After God renders His judgment on a backslidden church, He, God himself, will deal with those who have chosen to oppose His divine will. He will again raise this nation up spiritually one more time, but in what governmental form is not for you to know.
Having been deployed to numerous presidentially declared major disasters has given me some insight into what you might consider important in a time of crisis. The one thing I would tell everyone to have is the Ready Pack. That includes every member of your family including your pets. This is the reason why. The Ready Pack can serve as a sheltering-in-a-place cache, a drive-out or bug-out bag or a walk-out pack whenever the gas runs out or the road ends.
A Ready Pack is going to be designed for the geographical environment in which it will be needed, such as a Gulf Coast pack versus a Canadian border pack. There are many kinds of survival packs for a variety of responses. It may be a full dress stand alone pack or a companion pack to a full dress or a customized child's pack or a necessity pack for a pet. A Survival Instructor we studied under was the head of a state Search and Rescue Branch. He stated that he had six Ready Packs. Each for a different type of search and seasonally adjusted accordingly. His survival and that of the lost or injured person depended on those Ready Packs.
What makes our Ready Pack structure different is that it is tailored after a little known community, the thru-hikers of the Triple Crown Trails (Appalachian Trail 2,167 miles; Continental Divide Trail 3,100 miles; The Pacific Crest Trail 2,650 miles). These individuals traverse these trails hiking from beginning to end in one continuous journey. They are the civilian experts in wilderness long distance hiking and survival. We have studied and gleaned all that we can from these experts. We are not thru-hikers of these trails, however, we have section hiked all three from their trail heads, trail end and in between.
It is important to remember that if all you have is a pillow case, a bottle of water and a can of pork n beans; you have your first generation Ready Pack. We are currently on our fifth generation Ready Pack. We suggest that you build it over time as finances allow. You can utilize birthdays, Christmas and anniversaries as vehicles to build depth into your Ready Pack.
Welcome to the Readiness Living Blog. Here we will be discussing how you can mitigate the unbelievable suffering that is coming to our nation. Political maneuvering and crafted legislation will result in Christians becoming the hunted. As the financial dynasties collapse, currencies erode and jobs vaporize, desperation will set in and anarchy will be unleashed. Great cities, unable to pay police, will fall victim to the angry mobs determined to extract their needs and wants regardless of the cost in human carnage. They will be without natural affection, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good and they will enjoy their day of havoc.
As ambush response becomes the way of the land, do you have a plan? As no one gets to pick their time of crisis and in that time of crisis you will default to your level of training, are you training?
Since 2002, Steve has been warning our nation that it will again enter into another Great Civil War and that it will be one of Lawlessness vs Civil Order.
