PREPARATION UPDATE – April 10, 2009
We have spent many teachings trying to warn the people of this world, both Christian and non-Christian about what is happening in this world and how to prepare both spiritually and physically. Many do not believe in physical preparation, but we see in Scripture the examples of Noah, Joseph, the ten virgins with lamp oil, and the Good and faithful servant just to name a few. Scripture references are provided at the end of this writing.
God is ultimately in charge of your spiritual and physical survival and eternal destiny. Many do not accept either method of preparation. We have decided to provide some web sites and contact information where we have gotten some valuable information. We do not endorse these contacts or claim they are the only places to get information. We do not get any financial reimbursement for recommending these contacts.
We face the threat and are experiencing things foretold in Scripture in various degrees. We do not have all the answers, but there are others who have done their homework. Whether it be earthquakes, famine, nuclear disasters, we need to be prepared both spiritually and physically. We consistently point everyone to Jesus who has all the answers, but we offer this practical information because we love you.
The most important book to have on hand would be the Holy Bible for your spiritual preparation. One should be included with your other items. Another Biblical reference book that would help would be the Strong’s Concordance. There are many other physical survival handbooks available for outdoors or indoor survival. I have several included with our preparation supplies. Some teach how to use herbs for herbs for healing. Here is a book that offers many check lists and would be a valuable asset to you in your preparation. The author has made over 200 medical mission trips. He has been in many different kinds of disaster situations.

Poke a hole in the bottom front edge of the jug and stick the twig in it. With another piece of rope tie onto handle and hang in tree for sun to heat. Great way to have hand washing station. Pull out twig to let water flow. Adjust with loosening or tightening lid.

The list can go on and on. Just pray for God to remind you of what you may need.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.2 Timothy 3:1-7
(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.
(6) For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
(7) Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.Matthew 24:7-14
(8) All these are the beginning of sorrows.
(9) Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
(10) And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
(11) And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
(12) And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
(13) But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
(14) And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.Genesis 41:25
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:Genesis 41:39-40
(40) Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.Matthew 25:1-5
(2) And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
(3) They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
(4) But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
(5) While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.Matthew 24:37-39
(38) For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
(39) And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.Matthew 24:42-47
(43) But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
(44) Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
(45) Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
(46) Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
(47) Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.Proverbs 27:12
The Lord’s Supper
We have done a lot of teaching and prophesying about the False Communion. This does not mean that we should not continue to practice the true sacrament of the Lord’s Supper or Communion in our own homes or fellowship groups. The following are suggestions for doing that. We need to remember the purpose of the Passover meal and the importance of trusting Jesus for everything we need in our lives as we realize the perilous times we are living in. When I prepare the sacrament I pray over myself for forgiveness, cleansing, anointing, and for the Lord to prepare the hearts of those who will be receiving it. We usually ask everyone to examine their own hearts before partaking, read the passage pertaining, and sing some praise music before, after, or both. After the sacrament is also a good time to anoint with oil and pray for individual healing. (Recipe found on the Internet)

Communion Wine – Fruit of the Vine
There has always been much controversy about this, so we leave it to personal choice and prayer. If you choose to use real wine, it should be 1 part red wine mixed with 2 parts water as was the custom of the early church fathers. Or, you may use grape juice full strength. The point is to Remember Jesus.
And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.Luke 22:19-20
(20) Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
