There seems to be a theme in my friend’s posts on Facebook, and there is a frustration amongst people. Some say to pray and others say to take up arms.

I am reminded of something that the Holy Spirit told me a few years back. He said that things were going to get much more violent in the future. He instructed me to get ready for those unavoidable days.

My response was to purchase guns as per Luke 22:35-37
“And He said to them, “When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?” So they said, “Nothing.” Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.””

The instruction was that there were going to be times when we would have nothing, and God would provide food, clothing, money and protection. Then there would be times when we would have to prepare our “Bug-Out-Bag” in advance for our food, clothing, money and protection. What would get us through would be whether or not we are in constant tune with the leadings of the Holy Spirit.

I remember telling my own children to get ready for America to fundamentally change, and not to put their hopes in things that man offers. We cannot place our faith in welfare, handouts, politicians, parties, or worldly ideals, but we must daily seek the direction of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We all know the “turn, turn, turn” verses (a time for this and a time for that), and we are entering times when we will have to work through a balance of when to pray and when to fight.

This might be a sobering post, but it is time to become more sober minded when it comes to our walk with God. The time of trials and tribulations are upon us, and we have work to do.
