Imagine having a vivid, full color dream in which you see set before you a map of the continental United States. As you watch, Washington DC disappears in an instant and becomes a vacuum. It is a place now where nothing lives and nothing grows, a desolate place like many of the biblical places after the judgment of God. The nation is stunned with disbelief and the world is in perplexity over the judgment that rendered the arrogant, politically correct, Godless government into a vacuum. You see a nation that is quickly to become a beggar on the world scene, an annoyance. In your dream you see borders begin to form between the states. What was the United States becomes like 50 countries with hard borders. It is no longer the United States but has become a divided nation embroiled in bitter disputes.
In the dream you see a country that no longer has a central government. With the loss of a federal bureaucracy that dictated a politically correct agenda that defied God’s spiritual laws, you see a nation where chaos reigns. Suddenly, in the dream on your map, you see monopoly-like caricatures begin to pop up about half way out of each state. They begin to argue and shake their fists at each other. Finances become a source of great dispute because it is now like a board game, play money, just paper without any intrinsic value. You see a nation that is now entrenched in another Great Civil War involving lawlessness versus civil order. Now you awaken, but that was in 2002, when it was a dream and they thought you were crazy.
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.
Today I hunted for eagles to capture on digital media. As I tromped through mud along the Mississippi River in Missouri looking for the annual gathering of these mighty birds of prey, it occurred to me they do not even consider the Super Bowl or its existence. In God's creation the eagle's perspective has remained the same through the centuries and unchanging, survive and procreate. Our characters are shaped by the choices we make while the eagle does not contemplate or plan a robbery or the use of a firearm. He climbs the thermals and soars to heights to use his awesome vision to see what is coming. There again, he does not know that there are prophecies written in the Bible that foretell of a great feast of captains for him to devour someday.
Prophecy in the Bible is a foretelling, not for eagles, but for men to know the coming events and seasons. It allows us to prepare our hearts and minds for perilous times that will get worse and worse. It foretells of a time when men's hearts will fail them from fear because of the things coming on the earth. This is not your mainstream feel good Super Bowl thinking but about knowing that a day of reckoning will surely come regardless of who wins the Super Bowl. Remember the backside of grace is judgment.
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.
