Preppers around the world are busy... well... prepping for any of the many disasters sure to befall earth very soon. The most widely anticipated worldly disaster will occur on December 21, 2012. According the well publicized Mayan Calendar, the 4th Age of Man will come to an end on that date. Humankind and the earth as we know it will cease to exist.
Millions of people are busy preparing to "survive" this calamity of the earth no longer being here. It befuddles me a bit to imagine what they are going to do. But Ive got other fish to fry.
Lets look at several scenarios relating to December 21, 2012 from a Christian perspective. Whats a Christian prepper to do?
On December 21, 2012, the entire earth is destroyed and mankind is wiped out completely.
Well, Im not worried about whether I bought green bananas. For that matter, any and all earthly matters, cares, concerns... well, theyre gone! I now have to meet Jesus at the Throne of Grace. Im not getting any "do overs." Am I ready?
Prepper action: Lay up my treasures in heaven. We do this by being a disciple of Jesus Christ, loving and obeying His commands.
On December 22, 2012, everything is just as it was the day before.
Well, if I put everything on the line that December 21 would be the end, Im in the deep do now. Its more likely that life will continue as it has. Am I ready?
Prepper action: Be a good steward of what God has provided. Be a disciple of Jesus Christ, loving and obeying His commands.
I get struck by lightning or run over by a bus this afternoon.
Well, the "end of the world" just got personal with me. Guess Ill not worry about December 21. But am I ready right now?
Prepper action: It could be too late to prep. That is unless Im prepping NOW! How? By being a disciple of Jesus Christ, loving and obeying His commands.
Only the Father knows the day and the hour.
As Ive written before, Jesus did not command us to live our lives in a manner that gets us to heaven. He commands us to bring heaven to earth by being His disciples. Loving, obeying His commands, spreading the Good News. THATs Christian prepping.
If were doing that, the end will be taken care of.
Jesus promised us that!
