If Hillary Wins… we will need Bold ambassadors / Servant Warriors to stand for the truth and there are going to be times when doing so will take courage.
Friends, you and I both know that Hillary hates bible believing Christianity. She has promoted every sort of anti-Christian law, regulation and ideal that has come across her desk.
She has even promoted publicly that she will be coming after Christians if they do not bow to the evil and unjust law of the land by enforcing hate speech, anti-pro-life, anti-pro-family laws and regulations.
Ted Shoebat in a recent article stated the following exposing Hillary’s motives when she proudly spoke at the Woman’s World Summit this past April 23.…
Hilary Clinton just said that Christians must deny their Faith through the enforcement of laws, by stating that the Christian belief in being pro-life, and anti-abortion, must change, and that this should be done through laws and “political will.” If Christians must change Christian teachings in regards to abortion, then what Hilary Clinton is essentially saying is that Christians must deny their Faith. Hillary Clinton, speaking at the Women in the World Summit on April 23, made the statement:
Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.
Here is the video in her own words… https://youtu.be/7f8of3NAX-c
Notice that she says that the change of Christian beliefs is the “unfinished business of the 21st century,” which means she wants to persecute Christians.
It is well known that Hillary is NOT a nice person. She has a horrible temper, has no problem lashing out and DOES hold “vindictive” grudges.
Here is what a few White house insiders said about Hillary…
Joan Baggett, who served as assistant to the president for political affairs, said …
“She would blow up over something that she misinterpreted. Again, you can’t take her on, that’s not my boss. You can’t take on the First Lady,” Baggert said. “I remember one time in one of these meetings where she was blowing up about [Bill Clinton’s] staff and how we were all incompetent and he was having to be the mechanic and drive the car and do everything, that we weren’t capable of anything.”
Baggert added that Clinton would chew out staffers in front of their colleagues, which made things especially awkward. “Sometimes she’d be in those meetings and I’d think, ‘Please don’t let her yell at me,’” Baggert added.
Former White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers had made allegations about Hillary’s temper in Gail Sheehy’s infamous 1999 book, Hillary’s Choice.
She claimed that she had covered for the Democrat when Bill Clinton was spotted with a bad scratch on his neck following a blazing row with his wife after he entertained Barbara Streisand at the White House, reported New York Daily News.
‘I’m the idiot who said he’d cut himself shaving before I’d seen him,’ Myers told Sheehy. ‘Then I saw him — it was a big scratch, clearly not a shaving cut.’
She also claimed that Clinton would become angry when people tried to disagree with her and would hold a vindictive grudge.
She has shown herself to be far worse than her husband in being a pathological liar. I don’t have to tell you all the evils she has perpetrated and then lied about it.
You want to watch something the really showed me how horrible she is, just watch the movie “13 Hours.” For those of you who may not know this movie, here is a quick descriptor.
“13 HOURS is the gripping true story of six elite ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA who fought back against overwhelming odds when terrorists attacked a U.S. diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012.”
After watching this movie, I was appalled at the actions taken or the lack of action taken by Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration. When we were done watching I was actually angry at Hillary for allowing these men to die needlessly.
I am showing you all this so that you understand that she is displaying the propensity to do anything, say anything and act in any way so that she gets what she wants. She shows herself to have no upstanding moral compass, emotionally bankrupt and someone who will have no problem using the office of the president to lash out at Christians and finally take care of “unfinished business of the 21st century.” That being imprisoning Christians who stand against much of what she is shoving her anti-Christian, Anti-biblical ways down the people’s throats.
This is why I say “If Hillary Wins… We Will Need Christians With Great Courage.
Can you imagine if sharing the gospel can become against the law?
What about praying in a public place?
What about making any biblical statement “hate speech” and strict prison sentences being issued for said “hate speech.”
Do you understand that under a Hillary presidency she will continue to push the laws, regulations and create even more executive orders outlawing the practise of Christianity as a whole?
Don’t believe me, just look at what is happening today under the current administration.
Voting = Prayer & Supplication
If Hillary Wins … then it is by God’s Will and the need to judge our nation. No matter what, God uses our leaders to chastise us or to bless us.
I strongly believe that our nation is at a crossroad in history. This is why it is so critical that we get out and vote.
Voting for President was put in place by our founding fathers. They understood that God is the one who put the leaders in place. They wanted a way so that all people in the US could, in a sense, have a means to present a supplication of prayer to God for the future leaders of our country.
In the end God will have the final vote, but we also know that God listens to the prayers of his people.
I look at Abraham and how he convinced God to spare Sodom and Gomorrah if 10 righteous could be found.
I also remember when God was going to wipe out Nineveh but heard the prayers of the King and forgave the people because they repented of being evil.
We see time and time again God stepping in on behalf of countries.
So what makes us think that He will not listen to the prayers and supplications offered up by His people today?
I believe that we as Christians should exercise our right to vote. I believe that if we do nothing, then we are allowing evil to prevail.
James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin
God has allowed us this freedom to express who we desire to help lead our country. If we do not exercise that freedom, then we could be the one vote that makes a difference, and Yes elections have been won on just a few vote spread.
We do not have the luxury to play politics in this election. The very life of our nation is at stake. If Hillary wins, it will be over and we will have lost everything. If that happens we will have a completely socialist/ Marxist country.
There is no one who is perfect, But I look at Trumps platform and I look at Hillary’s platform. I want Trump’s ideas that will possibly help pull America back out of the muck and mire that the last 4 presidents have put her in. Verses Hillary’s platforms that will continue to destroy our nation and a complete loss of freedoms.
If Hillary Wins… We Will Need Courageous Christians Again
Ernest Hemingway said the following … “Courage is grace under pressure.”
It takes courage to do what is right when the world is saying otherwise. It takes courage to make a stand when others are telling you to shut up and sit down.
Webster’s Dictionary defines courage the following way…
“Courage is the quality of being brave and having the ability to face danger of difficult situations without being overcome by fear.”
Courage is not the absence of fear it is having the fortitude to push that fear aside and continue to do the right thing. Sometimes that right thing is staring death in the face.
Mark Twain said the following…
“Courage is the resistance to fear, the mastery of fear – NOT the absence of fear.” (enphisis mine).
English writer, poet, journalist, & lay theologian G.K. Chesterton staled the following about Courage…
“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live but taking the form of a readiness to die.”
I do not like writing what I am writing, but it is a fact that If Hillary Wins there is a very good chance that many good bible believing Christians will see the inside of a prison cell for crimes against society.
See, Hillary’s religion is that of the state, just like any other Marxist, Communist, or Socialist. The state is the one with freedoms, not the people. In fact it is the people who are enslaved to serve the state. If you are part of that inner circle of elite statists, then life is good. Otherwise you are destined to serve the state’s elite, and thrown crumbs where the state’s elite live in luxury.
We will lose our nation, our freedoms and leave a horrible legacy to our children and grand children.
That is if there are no Christians willing to stand courageously for Christ when laws and regulations are set out against us.
I am reminded of the following verses found in Joshua…
Joshua 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
Could History Be Repeating Itself?
How many people really remember how Germany persecuted the Jews in WW II?
Sure we know it happened and all, but what were the steps that the fascist Nazis took?
What were the early steps that Germany took when persecuting the Jewish people?
1933 – Nazi brown shirts start to boycott of Jewish shops
1934 – Jews were banned from public places such as public parks and swimming pools. At the same time teachers, lawyers and servants were fired from their jobs if they were Jewish.
1935 – The Nuremberg laws are enacted. Jews are no longer allowed to be German citizens. Jews cannot marry non-Jews and Jews cannot have sexual relations with non-Jews.
1936 – Jews are banned from working, owning and running a business. They are also banned from having any German property.
1938 – Kristallnacht took place the nights of November 9th & 10th. It is known as “the night of broken glass”. What took place were a series of attacks from Nazi brown shirts, SA Stormtroopers and Nazi sympathizing civilians against Jews throughout Nazi Germany. This also bled over into parts of Austria and other German controlled lands. German authorities looked on without lifting a finger to stop it. The attacks left streets covered with broken glass from the windows of Jewish-owned stores, buildings and synagogues. At least 91 Jews were killed in the attacks and 30,000 Jews were arrested and incarcerated in concentration camps. Jewish homes, hospitals and schools were ransacked as the attackers demolished the buildings with sledgehammers. Over 1,000 synagogues were burned and over 7000 Jewish businesses destroyed or damaged.
1939 – Warsaw Ghettos were opened and Jews living under the Nazi regime were forced to wear a white / yellow start of David armband or actually have one sewn onto the outside jacket. It was aganst the law to not identify ones Jewishness.
The Five Steps Leading To Persecution
History shows that there are five general steps that are followed by a government or ruling power when they start harassing a group like Christians. These steps then lead to outright persecution which then leads to imprisonment, torture and eventually martyrdom – death.
The steps are as follows…
1. Identifying: This involves finger-pointing by the ruling authority for the purpose of placing the blame for the nation’s troubles on one particular group. In 1 Kings 18:17, King Ahab identifies the prophet Elijah as being the one responsible for the drought that took place in the land of Israel. He accused Elijah by asking the question, “Art thou he that troubleth Israel?” The true body of Christ and Biblical Christianity in America today are blamed for being the greatest obstacles to the liberal establishment’s plans for a totally humanistic “utopian” society.
2. Marginalizing: By this means, the “politically incorrect” portion of the Church is looked upon as not being part of the mainstream of society. This is done by an organized smear campaign conducted by the ruling authorities through the national news media. They do this by the use of such trigger words as radical, extremists, separatists, and fringe.
3. Vilifying: By this means, the persecutors employ such methods as uttering slanderous and abusive statements against targeted groups as to cheapen and debase their worth and significance in society. The accusers need no factual evidence for their accusations, but innuendoes, insinuations, hints and making associations with other previously known undesirables of society.
4. Criminalizing: In implementing this step of persecution, it gives the state “legal” justification for arresting and incarcerating the accused. Here the state charges the persecuted with accusations of alleged criminal wrong-doing. The state naturally picks on the most vulnerable segment of the Church in order to send their threatening message to all the rest who adhere to similar views and practices. Incarceration of a few means intimidation of the many. Victimization of a government- protected group is a direct result of the incrimination of the accused. This gives the state “legal” authority to take a heavy-handed control in “protecting” its citizens. Presently, our federal government has several groups which they deem as “victims” for whom they feel responsibility to protect.
5. Terrorizing. This is the blatant and outright acts of terrorism carried out by the police powers of the state against the persecuted. These are acts of coercion by threat or by violence and are intended to create anxiety and fear in the hearts of its victims, with the purpose of silencing and neutralizing the opponents of the tyrannical government in power. (1)
Like it or not, believe it or not, our nation has now reached stage 5. The state has begun to “Terrorize” Christian beliefs and as the case in Coeur d‘Alene Idaho, pastors are now being threatened with jail time and fines.
Persecution is not starting, persecution is here. Stages one through five are now in place. That means that Stage 5 will continue to progress and things will get worse.
As I have said in the past, the government is not going to spend billions of dollars on FEMA camps all for nothing, they plan on using them.
It is crystal clear that attempts to criminalize Christian behavior is something that we need to face.
This also clearly signals that the steady erosion of religious liberty are entrenched and these liberties are on the way out if not totally gone.
The persecution has begun and the natural path is that it will increase.
Because we did not stand up to the labeling, marginalization, and criminalization.
This in turn has created a “snow ball effect” which provides momentum for the persecution to increase.
I STRONGLY believe that the proper response for the true bible believing Christian should be the following…
1 – Prayer & Being in The Word
2 – Prepare Mentally, Spiritually, and Physically
3 – Proactiveness (being proactive)
Prayer & Being in The Word
We are given a wonderful promise found in Isaiah.
Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
God will see us through no matter what. His Grace is sufficient for us and His Grace will always be there for us to see us through the darkest of times.
But we need to pray. Prayer is one of the most critical tools we as Christians have. It is something that I am turning to more and more. I also find that the faster I turn to prayer, the sooner solutions take place.
We read the following…
1 John 5:14-15 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
God wants to know what is bothering us and He wants to help us. He is our loving heavenly father. But even though He knows all and sees all, He also likes to be asked for help when He knows that we are struggling.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
By praying and seeking God’s help, we in turn are strengthened and are able to help others.
Prepare Mentally, Spiritually, and Physically
If you have been a long time reader, you know that I promote a self-sufficient lifestyle. We need to be doing all we can so that our families have the best opportunities possible.
That means that we need to start preparing mentally, spiritually and physically.
Noah did not have an ark drop out of the sky for him, he built it.
We read the following…
Genesis 6:21- 22 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. 22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
Proverbs 30:25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
God has given us two hands to work with and a brain to think with. He has provided the way for us. We are not called to just sit around and wait on Him to do everything for us. Again, did God drop an ark out of the sky for Noah?
No. Just sitting around waiting for God to rain manna from heaven or to grow a $20.00 bill tree in our back yard is testing God. Testing God is a sin and there is only one area that we are given permission to test Him and that is with our tithe. Nowhere else in scripture are we called to test him.
So if you are not doing something to prepare, you are being a sluggard.
Here is what scripture says…
Proverbs 6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Proverbs 20:4 The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
Proverbs 13:4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
I have been preaching to you on having your ark ready, many of you know already.
But if we can help, do not hesitate to contact us and I can help make suggestions.
This is a tough one. We need to think about things that we do not like to think about.
Each one of us need to make up our minds now as to what we will do if say we are collected up in the middle of the night, will we fight or will we allow ourselves to be taken away?
What is it that we live for and what is it will we die for?
Will we forsake or renounce Christ just to save our own skin?
What are we going to do if they come down the streets demanding everyone give up their guns?
What happens if meeting in church becomes against the law?
What happens if owning a King James Bible becomes against the law?
There are many not so present things that you, your spouse and possibly your children all need to discuss. Persecution is here now and as I have mentioned we are in stage 4 of the steps to persecution. Stage 5 is just around the corner.
Remember the Jews with “Kristallnacht”? That was two days of utter terror against all the Jews in all of Germany. Did they know this was being planned?
Many of the Jews were caught off guard and 30,000 were taken to prison camps right there right then.
This is a “Shock and Awe” sort of event. The Jews did not know what was happening. All of a sudden they were attacked the next moment they were put in box cars heading off to prison camps that became their hell on earth.
What sort of mental contingencies do you have in mind if something like Kristallnacht took place in our nation?
Say that it could not happen?
That is what the Jews thought too and the result was 6 million of them being tortured and killed at the hands of the socialist Nazi state.
I know that what I am saying is not easy to think about. Heaven knows I don’t like thinking about it either. But Tracye and I have had these sort of talks and we have mentally prepared for some things to happen. Are these easy to think about and decide upon? No it isn’t. But what you do not want to happen is to react out of fear and panic.
By having some of these things talked out already and having some form of a mental plan, your mind will be able to process the events we are talking about in a somewhat easier manner than being in the midst of panic and not knowing what to do at all.
How many bible believing Christian’s panicked during WW II and in that panic denied Christ just to save their own skin?
You do not know unless you have mentally prepared yourself for that sort of situation.
This is when being sober minded and allowing God’s Grace to work within us will be very critical.
We cannot allow ourselves to become emotionally entangled in hype and false emotional hoopla. We need to remain grounded so that we can think clearly and logically. It is very easy to get all wrapped up in all this extra biblical stuff that tickles our ears, but we need to focus on what is here now, not all these ideas of asteroids, polar shifts, giants walking the earth and other rabbit trail stuff.
It is time to focus and renew our minds in His Word and dawn the armor of God.
We do not rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to our level of training.
I love this saying because it is so very true.
This is another reason why I say we need to be mentally prepared. Mental preparedness is a form of training.
Being in God’s Word is also a form of mental training.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
It is by the renewing of our mind that we will be able NOT to conform to the world.
We need to be thinking on God’s Word 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
In Deuteronomy we read the following…
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
This is mental preparedness. This is training our minds, hearts and souls to cleave to God.
As you can see in the above verses, one can realize that one is preparing themselves spiritually as well as mentally.
But it is the spiritual that will help see us through
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
One of the greatest scriptures that I think one can memorize is Psalms 23.
There is so much in these 6 verses that will help you weather any storm that you may be going through.
Take the time to read it, but more… to memorize it.
Psalms 23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
As I said, memorize this as well as other verses in the bible.
There may be a time where we will not have access to God’s Word.
We in the states no longer value our bibles, but we need to see the value in it again. A time is coming that we may not have easy access to it.
Can you imagine what it would be like to not have access to the King James Bible? I can’t and when I do think about it, chills go down my spine. I instantly feel lost without my bible.
Here is a video that you have probably seen before. A group of Chinese Christians getting bibles.
WATCH NOW >>> http://youtu.be/yhvranRtlKk
Why don’t we cry and hold God’s Word as if it a great treasure like these Chinese brothers and sisters in the Lord do?
Tears come to my eyes every time I watch this. I think to myself that someday this might be us.
We need to memorize God’s Word and hide it in our heart. I time might come where we will not have access to His Word and what we have hidden in our heart may be all that our souls can be nourished from.
How many scriptures can your soul be nourished from if times were drastic?
Ok.. so proactiveness is not a real word. But I believe that you know what I am trying to say here.
Be proactive NOW. Don’t wait for the walls to fall in on you before you do something that might help save you and your family.
There are millions of people who live through persecution throughout history. I believe the one thing that helped them is that they knew it was coming and they were proactive about it.
Things you can do…
Start looking at what you need to do to create some sort of home fellowship
Start looking at what you need to do to stay in contact with other like-minded Christians.
Start learning skills that will make a difference in case you do lose your job or not able to work. Again look at the laws pass against Jews holding down jobs. Learn skills that you can use to help the body of believers so that you can unite together.
Start looking where you can make a difference in your local body of believers. Become the leader of a home church, learn to evangelize better, become a better Berean and search the scriptures daily.
Learn how to live a more “underground” life. Learn what OPSEC means. Learn how to meet in covert manners as well as communicate.
Establish non electronic means of communication
Look into establishing “dead drops” using USB Flash Drives. Here is a great website that explains this… http://deaddrops.com/
You can watch a video on it here — http://youtu.be/hwohadcUv4A
Another thing is get extra food, water and medicine on hand.
But a lot of people ask me….
SO… Where Do We Start?
Start Storing Food Now – MY QUICK START – FIRST 30 DAYS
This is my “get moving now” section. You need food and you need water.
What I suggest is getting a Berky Sport Bottle and multiple bars of 3600 ER bars.
I am a huge fan of The Berkey Sport bottle, the filter in this is good for 100 gallons of water, that is if you are not filtering thick muddy water, which by the way, it will filter.
Second is the ER Emergency Ration 3600+ Calorie, 5-Year Emergency Food Bar. These bars are made to be used for oceanic use, i.e. life boats. These have a 5 year shelf life and what I like about these over other 3 day bars is that they are good up to 150+ degrees in the heat. That means that you can store these in your garage if you live in a hot area and they will not go bad or lose their nutritional value.
If you are doing a lot of strenuous work, then one of these bars a day will keep your body going.
CAUTION – you do not want to live off of these 3600 calorie bars for over 30 days. They are great and you could, but you might stop up your digestive system and get constipated.
I recommend you watching my videos that I made a few years ago about both of these products.
ER 3600 Emergency Bar – WATCH NOW >>> – https://youtu.be/fmzJwbTBGgs
Here is a video of me when we lived in Texas of me drinking out of a skanky pool that our dogs and chickens used to drink out of and even bath in.

Having these two items on hand will get you going for your first 30 days.

Storing Food Now – 30 Days to a Year +
There are multiple reasons why one would use a 5 gallon bucket.
- You can stack them pretty high
- They are able to take a lot of weight coming down on them
- They float
- They are hard to crush
- If you use a Gamma Lid, they are air tight and pretty much bug proof
First things first, try to find some really good food grade buckets. These tend to be thicker than the standard “Home Depot” or “Lowes” bucket. Not saying that these are bad, but if you are able to get food grade, that means they will withstand a crushing force a lot more than the others mentioned above.
Next, you want to invest in product called Gamma Lids. These are air tight lids that spin on and spin off. You can wrench them down pretty tight, but you really do not need to do that. I have been using Gamma Lids for years now and they are way better than the standard 5-gallon bucket lid.
There is another product that I am impressed with and that my friend Steve Quayle recommends is a product called the “AirScape Bucket Lid.
Not that 5 gallon buckets aren’t useful on their own, but add in the AirScape Bucket Lid and you just turned “food storage” into “food preservation” -which we all know is pretty critical when it comes to survival.
With the AirScape Bucket inner lid, air is forced out of any 3.5, 5 or 7-gallon bucket so you can properly store whatever you have inside regardless of how full it is. The patent-pending inner lid is lowered to the level of your food or contents so that it is always forcing the maximum amount of air out, keeping food fresher longer. This food storage revolution is great for preserving anything from bulk coffee, flour, rice and beans to pet food and chicken feed.
The negative with the standard 5-gallon bucket lid is that to get a really good seal, you have to use a rubber mallet and then you have to use a special pry bar that looks like a big can opener to open those plastic lids. If you have ever pried a 5-gallon bucket lid off with your fingers, you can lose a finger nail or two in the process. This is why I really recommend getting the Gamma Lids or the AirScape Bucket Lids

What Do I Store I My 5-Gallon Buckets?
Quick and to the point…
- Lentils (if your family eats them)
- Just about any sort of dry good, you can store in a 5-gallon bucket.
Purchasing these items are not to expensive right now, that is if you shop at one of the large store clubs like Sams, Costco, etc.
You need to do this and do it now. This is why, and as much as I hate to say it, use a credit card and get these items NOW.
Here is something to think about.
How hard will it be when the masses have caught on or an emergency has taken place and the need for these bucket set ups are going through the roof?
Get what I am saying?
As more and more people become aware, they will take action.
Right now we are still below the 20% of people taking action. But when 80% of the people start taking action, how high will these bucket set ups be then?
DO NOT STOP THERE – The Need To Battle Food Fatigue
I have seen it over and over again.
People get their 5-gallon buckets and think that they are totally prepared. The problem is that these foods cover your carbs, they don’t cover your proteins, sugars, and the much needed variety that the human body needs to truly survive.
Think that I am crazy?
How many here have heard of something called “Food Fatigue”?
What is Food Fatigue? It is having to eat the same thing day in and day out, over and over again.
Children and seniors are the ones who are most susceptible to this.
What happens is that after a while the person is fed the same thing over and over again to the point that the human body would rather starve than eat that food.
We look at the starving kids in Ethiopia. Believe it or not they have food, but they have been eating that same gruel day in and day out that many suffer food fatigue.
Their bodies would rather starve themselves than eat another bite of that same gruel that they have been fed these many months and years.
SO… think you can live on your 5-gallon buckets alone?
Think again and think Food Fatigue.

For the past 5 years the US food harvest have been dismal, so we will continue to see food prices go up. This is a fact.
Now couple that with 44 Million people having a hard time getting food stamps / EBT / SNAP money to buy food.
THEN… couple that with the strong possibility for a “catastrophic event” taking place due to the powers that be not wanted to give up said power to Donald Trump.
No matter what, food and other commodities will go up in price and people need to switch their thinking that food IS an investment and that buying food now, will save you money in the future.
This is why I HIGHLY recommend investing in survival food.
Survival Foods I Recommend
Many people have asked me about all the different foods out there. I have to admit that I have tried a lot of the foods and many are not any good. They taste like salty cardboard mixed with a few dehydrated veggies thrown in. Think over glorified Ramin noodles.
THRIVE LIFE FOODS – At the top of my list.
If you have been a reader of mine over the years, you know that I HIGHLY recommend Thrive Life Foods. This is the best and highest quality long term food that you can buy. When you start doing the math and buying in bulk with THRIVE, you will see a savings.
When Tracye and I converted over to 75% THRIVE to 25% regular store bought, we saw on average a savings of $500 – $700 a month. Granted we still had family living at home and our food bills were going up. But when we made that concerted switch, we were able to save money.
The old saying is true … Money Saved is Money Earned.
Yes we looked at our THRIVE as “survival food” at first, but over time we ran the math and the numbers just made sense, buy in bulk and save the money for other family needs. It was the best switch we ever made.
We have been using THRIVE Foods for over 6 years. We raised our two youngest kids on it and my oldest son is raising his children on it.
Yes it is the Cadillac of food, but I refuse to skimp on my family’s health, welfare and nutritional needs.
One of the things I like about THRIVE LIFE Foods is that they have what is called “The Q.” What you do is choose a wish list of food, associate it to your “Q” and then associate an amount, anything over $50 a month, and then tell them what day they can hit your credit card. About seven days later your first batch of food you chose from your wish list shows up on your front porch.
Pick the food, pay and forget it. It keeps showing up every month with more items from your wish list.
Another thing that THRIVE LIFE has is non-GMO and also Organic foods available. This is a real plus over many of the other companies out there that are in the survival food arena.

NOTE – If you are wanting to order over $500 worth of food, please contact, I might be able to save you some money by running it through my back office. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and lets set up a time to talk.
AUGASON FARMS FOODS – Augason Farms runs a close second in my book when it comes to emergency / bulk food. I have tried them in the past and they are really good. The great thing is that they also are sold on Amazon and the prices are pretty affordable when you look at the nutritional value as well as the really great taste that you are getting.
One of the recommendations that I make is for Augason Farms 30-Day Emergency Supply Pail Storage Food. One thing about this is that they have calculated over 1800 calories a day, where some of these other “survival buckets” only have calculated 1200 calories a day.
Don’t want to go for the full 30 day meals, then Augason Farms also has their “Augason Farms Lunch & Dinner Emergency Food Supply”
For just over $65 you can get 92 servings / half a month’s supply of lunch and dinners. If you couple this with the 30 day supply, you will have a very well rounded food supply for a solid month.

SURVIVE2THRIVE – 40 DAY/NIGHT 100% ORGANIC FOODSUPPLY
Survive2Thrive created this 40-Day Organic Emergency Food Supply because the majority of food storage option available are absolutely horrible. They are just empty calories that are loaded with GMO’s, preservatives, and extremely high levels of sodium while offering very little nutritional value. I personally can’t imagine thriving on such ‘food’, and I use the term loosely here, for any length of time. If you are looking for Non-GMO, Certified Organic Food Storage that will keep you healthy for a long period of time look no further. Shelf Life is 10-15 years if stored properly!

No matter what, if things continue to progress the way that they have. We are facing persecution. In fact it is happening already.
You need to be proactive in all these things NOW not later.
One Final Comment
When ever I write articles like this, I always get the person who tells me that they are giving up and why worry. The rapture is right around the corner so why should they care.
Folks, we need to start living our lives with Christian zeal again. We need to live like we are going to be here the next 100 + years.
We do not know when the rapture will take place, only God knows.
Us using the signs of the times to predict the rapture is absolute folly. We may stand on the Pre-Trib, Mid Trib, Pre-wrath or Post trib. It does not matter what we stand on, what matters is that history is repeating itself right now as I write this.
Folks, we as Christians need to start being proactive and start thinking about what we are going to do when this happens. This is not an “IF” it is a when.
Will the people blame Christians for an economic collapse? That is one of the things they blamed the Jews for.
Will they blame us for no food on the shelves?
Will they blame us for any number of things? Just look at how they view us now. They see us as hateful bigots, where they themselves are the very thing they are blaming us for being.
I honestly believe that whatever takes place that brings our nation down, odds are that we as bible believing Christians will have some sort of blame attributed to us.
I am not trying to make some wild guess here. This is historical fact. The powers that be when they make that final push for their own ultimate power, they ALWAYS have some group to blame. That is how they are able to get it past the masses and have their approval for taking said power.
Odds are very good that Bible Believing Christians as well as traditionally conservative people will be the ones who are blamed.
What you start doing now is what might save your lives and help you to see you through another days in the not so distant future.
