…in the U.S.A. at least, but we all should have plans in place for what needs doing when disasters strike so we can be as ready as possible, and come through them safely. CPR, first aid training, fire drill practice, reminders on how to use extinguishers (and when not to try), where in a house is the best place to be in case of tornadoes, earthquakes or what have you. All worthwhile stuff.
So, what do devoted Christians get for advice during this month? Suggestions from Christian News Wire to stock up on supplies at SurvivorMall.com.
For the most part, this looks like a smart site for all your emergency needs, although I’d still suggest shopping around for best prices before loading up a cart over there. They’re sure to be gouging people somehow and luring people into a false sense of fear regarding what’s most important to stock up on.
I’m laughing over the seed vaults, myself, and the link to “Spiritual Warfare” near the bottom of the page is a good click, too. They actually list Nephilim Stargates: The Year 2012 and the Return of the Watchers as something worth buying in case of emergency. I’ll save you the $14.99 just by directing you to my posts about that book, broken down handily into chapters/themes, which you’ll see are all listed in my Lit List page, under October 2008.
Nothing turns up under their heading for pet survival kits, alas, so your cats and dogs and goldfish will just have to fend for themselves once Christ’s apocalypse strikes or after those heathen towelheads knock down some more buildings and ruin America for everyone with the right faith. It’s never too early to prepare for such a thing, after all…
I assure readers, I don’t want to make light of a serious issue. Always Be Prepared isn’t just a motto for the Boy Scouts, it’s sound advice. There are too many stories every year of people who would have lived had they been smart ahead of time and now as this hemisphere heads toward winter there will be more and more chances of problems on the road, and many troubles that can be dealt with better if blankets, candles, flares and food rations are in the car with you. At the very least, pack a freaking first aid kit and a flashlight. It could save your life and the lives of your loved ones. And do your future rescuers a favour and stay with the bloody car if you hit the ditch. Nobody should have to poke around the deep snow searching for a frozen corpse in weather like that.
