Enemy Territory

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on all the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.  Therefore take up all the armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand firm therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints; and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”  Ephesians 6:10-20 VW-Edition


“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”  Ephesians 6:10-20 KJV


Out of all of the chapters in this book that this author contributed to, this by far has to be the most difficult topic to cover, but Lord-willing, this will be covered and hopefully provide appropriate warnings to those who are living during the Tribulation, as well as some biblical guidance to direction. 


As this is written, understand that what country you live in, whether you live in a rural or urban area, how far into the seven year Tribulation you are, as well as many other factors that could not possibly be calculated for, will make differences into what you will eventually experience.  In the end there will be one common ground for all of those who have repented towards God and by faith believed into Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and that end is that of a martyr (Rev. 13:7; 7:13-17).  The only question is how long can you survive, what can/could you do?


Both of these authors have some first hand experience with being enemies of the state, which provides a useful insight into the heavy hand of the government.  Also, this author (Tim) has first hand experience of not only having federal and state law enforcement actively pursuing myself and my family, but also the understanding of ‘neighbors’ also looking for us, in order to turn us into the hands of our enemies.  Finally, there is also firsthand experience seeing God’s guidance, protection and during this time (note: the Tribulation is a different time period, where God has determined that those who are Saved should become martyrs) God’s deliverance.  This story has been written in a book titled Of Missing Persons and it is available for free on (www.ofmissingpersons.com). 


There has been a war going on since Adam & Eve’s rebellion against obeying God in the Garden of Eden.  When they ate the fruit, sin entered the world (Romans 5:12) and ever since then the war has been raging (Rev. 12:7-9).  During the Tribulation this war is going to hit it’s absolute climax of depravity against our Creator, culminating with a sudden end when Jesus Christ returns with His saints (Zec. 14:5b)


“Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time left.”  Revelation 12:12b VW-Edition


“Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”  Revelation 12:12b KJV


As this is being written prior to the Tribulation, most would not realize the battle that rages on all around them.  The battle is serious, those who do not obtain Salvation through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12), the only Way (John 14:6), will not only be wounded, but eventually will die and end up in the Lake of Fire for all eternity (Rev. 20:11-15)


In recent times the battle has become more obvious to those paying attention, but rather unseen by the vast majority of those sleepwalking through this life.  The music, the entertainment (movies & television), much of the internet, the education system and the majority of the religious entities were unfortunately hijacked by satanic schemes to cause the ultimate prophetic statement to come to pass:


“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads the whole world astray; he was cast out onto the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”  Revelation 12:9 VW-Edition


“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”  Revelation 12:9 KJV


Now the Rapture has occurred and you are in the Tribulation, a time period like no other.  At least in Noah’s day, it started raining and for all but Noah and his family (8 souls in all, 1 Pet. 3:20) the Flood came and took them all away.  Here it is a different scenario, where the satanic Babylonian system of world government, controlled by the devil and his minions, lead by the Antichrist, with a declaration of war against God and those who are His, is raging in the streets.


Your neighbors, your friends, your coworkers, the government, perhaps those whom you used to go to church with, now are all your enemies, save those who truly become born-again Believers.  Imagine driving down the street, passing car after car, knowing that every single inhabitant of those vehicles are your sworn enemy.  They will, if not already, report you to authorities, perhaps even detain you themselves, and have you lead away to be murdered by the government, with whatever reason for their genocide that they give the general public. 


When my family and I were on the run from numerous federal law enforcement agencies, as well as the Michigan state police, we were also featured as ‘missing persons’ on local, statewide, national and international news.  The police used the media as a way for the general public to help locate us, to sniff us out and find us.  God through His Word revealed that we would not get caught (Proverbs 3:26) and when God says something, I assure you to take it at absolute Truth, for even if all odds are against you or seems against what God has spoken, you can be absolutely ascertained that it is going to come to pass, unless it is contingent on something else. 


As a small example, look at king Solomon, where the throne could have been in his family (1 Kings 9:1-9), even to this very day (for God has spoken), had he not departed from wholeheartedly serving God Almighty, following after pagan religions.  God had made it quite clear that –if-, so it was contingent.  The focus on this chapter is not to get into a deeper Bible study on such topics, but simply an overview.


With that said, you can also be certain, unless God assuredly spoke to you otherwise, that you will become a martyr during this time period.  What appears to be is 100% of Gentile Believers will be martyred during the Tribulation time period and those whose hearts are yearning for God, those of the Jewish faith will then repent and believe when Christ returns (Zec. 12:10).  For Satan is granted power to overcome the Believers who are Saved during that time, something that was not granted during the Church Age (Matt. 16:18).


“And it was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.”  Revelation 13:7 VW-Edition


“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”  Revelation 13:7 KJV


I recall with vivid detailing driving in a friend’s car on US 2 in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula towards Escanaba.  There on the right side of the road, facing oncoming traffic was an unmarked police cruiser with an agent inside carefully scanning the occupants of each vehicle passing by, undoubtedly also looking for our F-150 that they wrongfully assumed we were driving in. 


I remember driving past, careful not to turn my head and glance over to the agent, not making eye contact, but focusing on the road in a calm and rational manner, putting my trust in Him who Created me anyway, believing, though still fearful with some unbelief, trusting and proceeding past this obstacle. 


I was very keen and aware of government tracking, how to evade detection, but it was God who actually kept me protected, who actually provided the security that I needed.  Though I was very street smart in regards to avoiding detection, I realized that there were factors that I hadn’t considered, things I still was unaware of, plus the general public looking out for my entire family!


Staying in a local motel in Escanaba, with some fresh hair cuts and hair color, couldn’t provide full protection, trying to change a look.  Certainly not being all seen at once (as a family) was a helpful thing, but the room still was rented with cash – in person -, so the owner knew who I proclaimed to be, but even with a false name, still my overall appearance was very similar to the photos being plastered across the globe. 


What could I do if he were to watch the nightly news and realize that was me?  While he knew that my wife was also occupying the room, as well as our son, he had never met those people in person, yet I had to pay the bill, and being a sucker for free coffee and donuts in the morning, I would go to the lobby of the office and gather those desired things to take back to the room, often with a second trip for more coffee. 


Yet when the owner stated, after renting the room, that he was going to place us right behind him (the first room behind his owner quarters), I sensed that God was using this motel, this owner as a means of protection from those who sought our lives and began to trust Him even more, simply depending on him to provide a different avenue of escape, should our newfound home no longer be safe to continue staying there. 


Since 2012 when all of these things happened, I have from time to time kept up on newer technology, but never quite the same.  The internet changed, the search engines didn’t work as well with the results, technology became more and more difficult to circumvent, really the world has become harder to stay anonymous and much of the methods that would allow circumvention of the traditional status quo that they herd the far vast majority of people into, as a means of a total surveillance society, which will hit it’s culmination during the Tribulation, are so expensive that they are out of reach.


This technology has been growing like an out-of-control ivy vine, enveloping all things of our society and creating so much information that not only did the United States government have to build another data storage facility in Utah, but they simply can’t sort through all of the information the collect.  They simply use AI technology to flag and sift the information, having it available for a live agent to pull the data, should a citizen become red flagged and of interest to the powers that be.


In order to survive as long as possible and perhaps even witness and testify about Christ to people prior to your inevitable capture, one needs to understand the tools that are directly available for the government to quickly locate and detain you.  These tools that are voluntarily owned and used by enemies of the state (those who are true Christians) living in enemy territory need to be diminished, hidden or removed all together or else it will likely ensure a sooner-than-later capture by government authorities when the time comes for the government to finally authorize the final solution towards all Christians on the entire planet. 


You certainly are listed as an extremist, a terrorist, flagged in databases, with federal/state/local law enforcement agencies awaiting their orders to come and collect you.  While one could certainly simply not resist, turn themselves in or readily go compliantly, testifying before God to man about His goodness, mercy and Salvation to a doomed society, personally myself, I would rather try to do both, preach the Gospel and evade detection for as long as I could.


Of course, the problem right off the bat would be that those who are truly Saved will have been Raptured when the Tribulation started.  So only those who repent and believe the Gospel (Acts 20:21), those who place their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will be in this predicament. 


That predicament will be that they will be living in enemy territory, as an enemy combatant, their citizenship now in Heaven (Phil. 3:20).  There will be those who will resist, both because they have heard about the mark of the beast, the end times, the Tribulation, etc.  They will be militant with likely a patriotic attitude, steep in anarchist form of mentality, fighting to the end.  However, avoid these people, for many could be deluded by the grand delusion that God sends (2 Thes. 2:11-12) and unable to be Saved.  They will certainly be a target by governments around the world, many will be known.  The government has been collecting intel and categorizing these people on watchlists/etc. for years. 


As far as the Rapture is concerned, this book is written specifically to be read during the Tribulation time period, but certainly some will read portions or all of it beforehand.  For a comprehensive, absolute proof article (for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear (Matt. 13:16) see either the book The End, by the same author or the article His Glorious Appearing, both available for free on www.allwillstand.org, Kobo or Barnes & Noble online bookstore.  (Also available on Amazon for purchase.)  Eventually this book will not be available anywhere at some point in the Tribulation or perhaps even before, with perhaps the exception of the website.


So the focus on proving from a biblical standpoint that the Rapture is pretrib has already been done and is not the focus of this new material.  For those who are reading this during the Tribulation, understand that NO MATTER WHAT EXCUSE the religious leaders, governments, media or even others provide about people who went missing, this WAS CERTAINLY the Rapture that occurred.  This deception is part of ‘the lie’ that the Bible speaks about. 


“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is unveiled, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is honored, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, declaring of himself that he is God.  Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?  And now you know what is restraining, that he may be unveiled in his own time.  For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He is now restraining, until it is raised from out of the midst.  And then the lawless one will be unveiled, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.  The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who are perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”  2nd Thessalonians 2:3-12 VW-Edition


“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”  2nd Thessalonians 2:3-12


This is probably one of the harder points for people seeking answers during this time period.  Not speaking of those who are deluded and Judged by the Almighty God, their Creator, the one and only true God (John 17:3), but speaking to those who thought they were Saved, who simply believe in Jesus Christ, God, etc., but did not actually repent (Acts 17:30-31), nor truly with their heart seek after Jesus for Salvation found only through Him (John 14:6)


“You believe that God is One. You do well. Even the demons believe, and shudder.”  Jacob (James) 2:19 VW-Edition


“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”  James 2:19 KJV


The easiest way to put it, if you are still here, you were not truly Saved.  The chapter in this book called Broken is specifically written to try and address this situation from a good angle.  However, for the purpose of this book, you need Salvation, for even if you were to read this chapter and somehow evade detection and survive all the way to the Second Coming of Christ, not only would  the assumption be that you were not Saved (as Satan is given power to overcome the saints during this time period (Rev. 137)), but even if you lived out the rest of your years in comfort and the peace of the world, one day you would still die and find yourself in Hell for all of eternity. 


“And as it is appointed for men to die once, and after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, without sin, unto salvation.”  Hebrews 9:27-28 VW-Edition


“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”  Hebrews 9:27-28 KJV


Not regulating too much thought on those who are allowed to be deluded by God (there is NOTHING that can possibly be done for them to be Saved, they are the walking dead awaiting future Judgment), the real possibility exists for those who thought they were Saved and were not, to not even necessarily see a problem at first during the Tribulation with themselves or others whom they know. 


While they will not have been deluded, still there will be people who will by and large believe the lies of the talking mouths, who do have a chance to see through those lies and inherit Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior of all humanity.  Without seeing the need and accepting whatever is portrayed to supposedly be the truth of the matter of the ‘missing’ people, as well as the events that will unfold during this time period, they are stumbling towards eternal judgment, still unaware of the necessity of Salvation, still confused by the lies and false hopes that they hold unto too.  Nonetheless, any individual who truly seeks God will have these deceptions removed from their mind and be able to see clearly enough to be able to repent towards God and by faith believe into Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (Acts 20:21), accepting the free gift of Salvation (Eph. 2:8-9) that is made available to anyone who desires it (1 Tim. 2:3-4).


So now the part of what to do living during this time period.  You truly have a real problem, but if you truly become Saved, everything is temporarily anyway and you will be rejoicing in Heaven with your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as well as sharing that joy with others like yourself who also will inevitably become martyrs.  You might find yourself ‘alone’ but there are others like yourself all across the world (Rom. 11:4) and perhaps you might be fortunate to find a true Believer while still on this earth. 


“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the testing of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found unto praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him yet, believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the outcome of your faith; the salvation of your souls.”  1st Peter 1:6-9 VW-Edition


“Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.”  1st Peter 1:6-9 KJV


As the opening stated, it is not really possible to list all of the scenarios.  The year this is written is 2023.  We are on the verge of central banks across the world coming out with digital currencies behind the scenes, preparing for the one world currency that is coming (though it might not be how you think it would be, likely not a single currency, but rather a basket of currencies (SDR unit) weighed against each other with digital fingerprints (eventually)).  What country you live in, where you live in those respective countries, how far along in the Tribulation you are, as well as NUMEROUS personal problems and otherwise incalculable circumstances means there is not a one-size solution for each individual.


While this author is very keen at understanding government and corporation surveillance technology, as well as the means to avert much detection and minimize data given over unwillfully to those who are silently watching, certainly there is much more tools in the surveillance network that are unknown to myself and the general public at large.  Considering these things, the best way to continue on with this chapter is to let me make the assumption that I was not Saved prior to the Rapture, that I had heard some things throughout my life and when these things begun, I sought ought answers, realizing that the Rapture had happened, that I had been left behind.  Crying out to God, repenting of my sins, making a 180◦ turn and placing my faith firmly in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I now set off to both warn people and do what I can to lengthen my days on this earth, both for the purpose of the Gospel and to simply not allow the satanic world government that I am now surrounded by gather me up. 


Now knowing that the world is against me, that the government is against me, that I am in enemy territory, I would begin my journey.  So understand that this is hypothetical, based upon a scenario in 2023, based upon my real resources that I have currently available as of this writing, with my family.  My portrayed decisions might be incorrect, I might miscalculate, I might get captured sooner, I could fall ill, I could have to take care of an ill family member, I might simply die a natural death, I could get in a car accident, understand that this is hypothetical and God-willing that I could warn others and evade detection for a time being.  With that in consideration as you read this, understand that the best way for this chapter to detail living in enemy territory during the Tribulation is to use the Bible to understand some of the things that will take place, even if they are not yet fully understood, as well as imagine what I would in all reality think to do, even if I were unsuccessful at one or multiple points.  So for the sake of argument, for the sake of things that the Bible has prophesied will take place during this time frame, this portion of the book is going to be based on facts of surveillance known to the author, my current personal circumstances, what the Bible says and can be known for sure will happen during this time frame, as well as the hypothetical scenarios of the plans that I would make, successful or not.  This is not written as direct advice for those who read it, but simply to consider it for themselves what this author would think to do and determine with prayer to God, what they will do in their own circumstances.  As long as one is truly Saved, there is not right or wrong answer, unless it is against the Word of God.


A person, as stated above, could simply or may not be able to do anything.  They could just as well wait to the knock at the door comes and willfully surrender to their imprisonment and execution.  This is not wrong, certainly there is opportunity to still bear fruit as a Believer and tell others the Truth about Salvation.  For me, I am going to take a hypothetical look at my plan:


On March 29, 2023 and I woke up, doing my normal routine of checking alternative news website, as well as some mainstream and local news, while drinking coffee.  My jaw dropped when I saw that during the middle of the night millions of people disappeared (NOTE: Number might be significantly less…)  I remembered hearing about the Rapture, the Tribulation and fear struck me that I had been left behind, so for the next two days I watched endless reports, trying to read between the lines, read numerous articles, heard some mention of the Rapture, of which I fear that it has happened, but I didn’t know for sure.  I keep searching, trying to find a website that will give me information to verify that, but most seem to lie, saying the Rapture would happen at the end of the Tribulation.


Finally I stumbled on a good website (www.a-voice.org CHECK a-voice.net, if link no longer works) and found a whole section specifically written for those who are looking for an explanation that my worse fear has happened, I have come to believe I have been left behind.  While there is still some confusion and disbelief whether that has really happened or not, a choice has to be made, was I left behind?  If so, then I am in the Tribulation and bad things are coming or is this not it and it is something else, like the Rapture, but not actually the Rapture?  A choice has to be made to go off of, so I got down on my hands and knees, crying out to God, repenting of having wasted my life, not doing what deep down inside I knew was right, but focusing on the cares and deceitful pleasures of this world (Mark 4:19)


I already know that Jesus Christ is the Savior, I had already believed He died on the Cross for my sins, I went to church from time to time and had heard the easter sermons, as well as the christmas ones.  I thought I was Saved, though I didn’t really have a change in my life, my focus wasn’t truly on serving Christ, just wanted some assurance that I would go to Heaven when I died and hoped that I did.  Now, with the evidence of myself having fallen short (Rom. 3:23), my thoughts turn to remorse for a life wasted, I reflect upon my own morals that I had (I knew and withheld from doing many bad things, walking lightly as a ‘christian’ with ‘christian’ morals, but I didn’t really know Christ, just knew of Him and thought that was good enough) and crying out to God, I place my faith fully in Christ Jesus, determined to follow Him until death.  I’m afraid, I’m disappointed, but it is not too late.  Now that I am actually Saved, I turn off the cell phone and place it in the office, holding an emergency meeting with my wife, 11 year old son and 4 year old daughter, all of whom were also left behind.


My goal is to convince all of them to also repent towards God and accept the free gift of Salvation, by placing their faith in Jesus Christ and go on.  We discuss the seriousness of knowing that this leader who recently got in serious power over the world is likely the Antichrist, that there is going to be a mark of the beast.  We all agree that we are going to refuse the mark of the beast.  Whether or not they were sincere or if the 4 year old is old enough to actually understand and be Saved, everyone got on their hands and knees in silent prayer, afterwards declaring that they were now Saved. 


The fruit of the sincerity of that prayer and the heart before a holy God will not be known at this time.  The hope is that it was sincere, but myself I had prayed on my hands and knees before God, accepting Christ as my Savior prior and the heart wasn’t right, the Salvation was not genuine.  As one pastor stated, he didn’t believe that without conviction of sins that there could ever be sincere conversion.  That was me, truly it is a heart issue between the individual and their Creator. 


I recall the pastor declaring that anyone who had followed and repeated in prayer what was said during the alter call was now Saved.  That wasn’t his dominion to tell people they were now Saved, God should be the One to testify to their hearts (Rom. 8:16)


I would guess that the conversion rate of sincerity would be higher during this time period, especially after the mark of the beast was made known.  For then, the true weighing of the cost of truly following Christ would be known, rather than a vain prayer or empty words, of which the heart was not sincere.


“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.”  Psalms 51:17 VW-Edition


“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”  Psalms 51:17 KJV


The world is changing, as COVID changed things rapidly, apparently this Rapture is causing new things to happen as well.  Not fully understanding preciously what the future holds, I go out and prepare a plan of what to do with my family, considering everything and trying to decide how/what to do, what is best, praying to God for wisdom in the situation. 


The world still seems normal, the sun still shines, there is no talk of the mark of the beast yet (Rev. 13:16-18), the there is no desecration by the Antichrist (2 Thes. 2:4), yet there was a peace treaty in the middle east for seven years.  I looked at the man who was behind that treaty, now I know from the Bible that he is the Antichrist (Dan. 9:27), though most of those who I warned now think I am crazy.


After I met with my personal family in the living room, I called other family members, friends, spoke to a couple of neighbors, as everyone was talking about these things, talked to people at the grocery store, the gas station, etc., but most seemed not to agree and those who did, did not actually see a necessity to prepare. 


I decided to formulate a plan, knowing a lot about how government surveillance works, how watchlists work, of which I know I am high up on one.  I decide to be careful from now on what I say on the phone, knowing that all conversations are recorded and keywords said on the phone will flag the person’s conversation.  After all, it is the Tribulation and these people are going to eventually have full power enabled to destroy those who proclaim Christ as their Savior, as well as those who simply refuse to go along with their unconstitutional, immoral and dehumanized agendas.


I know that sometime during the Tribulation that men will work all day just to eat (Rev. 6:6).  The prices had been going up beforehand, so  ponder if with the prophesied cataclysmic events, prices will begin to sooner than later become out of control.


There are now two people in Jerusalem proclaiming God’s Truth.  These are the Two Witnesses spoken of in the Bible (Rev. 11:3), after 3 1/2 years, the Antichrist will kill them (Rev. 11:7) and then after three and a half days (Rev. 11:11) they will be given life again and their bodies that had laid in the street, unburied, will go up into Heaven, to the amazement of the world (Rev. 11:11-12)


I have become certain that we are in the Tribulation, despite what I read, by and large being against such an idea.  Those who do seem to believe this, seem to point people into a direction that is not according to the Bible, but mixed with truth and error, therefore not of God.  I have already been deceived once into thinking I was Saved, when I wasn’t, now I am not going to take any chances, but I am just going to follow God, read His Word (Acts 17:11) for myself and not trust anyone else. 


I know that the internet providers keep track of every website that you visit and hand over that information, upon request to any government agency.  This is a backdoor, same with many emails providers and social media websites, retailers, big & small, where when you use there services or reward programs, free or paid, you also agree in the terms, that few people read, that allows them to sell your information or provide it, under their terms, to others, often including the government.  This backdoor allows the government of the United States to circumvent the Fourth Amendment, by having the information collecting from a third party, of which you knowingly/unknowingly agreed to allow it to be shared.


I knew these things and had my own email accounts setup with my business websites, as well as an international email account designed not to track, nor allow my location to be disclosed (hidden in all emails) from where the email was sent out from.  Though I only used this account in a very limited manner. 


I also paid for a proxy service, so that when I went online, my computer went to a different computer internationally, then essentially my computer logged into their computer and my internet provider would have only seen their service going to that computer, than afterwards I would be anonymous from them knowing which websites I visited. 


Years ago I had used these services after we had federal law enforcement make a failed attempt on collecting me and charging me with bogus crimes, of which I did not commit.  I researched how to make it very hard or even impossible to be surveilled in many aspects of my online research and regular usage.  They simply didn’t need to know if I was looking at CNN’s website, finding a cookie recipe or searching out information about the government preparing and building internment camps hidden from the public eye.  Even many of these services are backdoor CIA fronts, where essentially people trying to ‘hide’ are actually going right into the very hands of those whom they are hiding from…dangerous to not know what you are doing and even then, you can never fully trust any service.


I once heard about a government official who wanted to send emails without being traced.  His method was pretty smart, he took and wrote and email, saved as a draft.  The other person would simply login to the same account and read the draft, reply as a draft, no actual emails being sent, though he did get caught, which is how I found out about the story.  Any place that sells websites with hosting can setup an email for that website (www.yourdomain.com) though all of that information is also public under ICANN rules.  Now, even without having many problems with federal agents, just an occasional run-in, usually when someone would visit us here in South Dakota.


In this theoretical post Rapture scenario, I decided to treat it as we did while living in Whitefish, Montana, and simply go as dark as possible, knowing that eventually the only way to go dark, when it clearly becomes too dangerous, is simply to avoid the information at all or use a location far from you are at (WIFI) to get the work done on a computer, though you will still give out a general location.


When it came to phone usage, we always had our regular home phone, our regular cell phone, but we also had tracfones.  This was a hard and expensive ordeal.  In a nutshell, what we would do is this:


You take and purchase two tracfones from a realtor that did not use (at the time) face recognition cameras everywhere, for us it was Family Dollar, where they were sold.  Then you would purchase those with cash only.


Next you would take and use a computer that was only for the purpose of doing such things, one not ordered online, where when ordered the NSA actually has an intercept program where they can intercept the computer in the shipping process, bug it and then it continues going to you, unknown that it is bugged.  Not a joke, Edward Snowden proved this, I already knew this, so you have to purchase a computer used or new, with cash, from a place, without the face recognition cameras.


So then, this is also tricky, you have to be able to get this phone to the person without saying it on the phone.  I had once sent a letter with a fake business name to a person who I was meeting up with in Spokane, Washington.  He ran a Christian ministry from his business office there and after we went missing, because they found his emails to me in my Yahoo email account that I used to have, he ended up being under FBI surveillance for several months afterwards.  He noticed people in the early morning hours outside his home and noted the FBI outside his business that he owned there (a printing shop). 


I knew, even before the USPS had their ‘informed delivery’ that all of the to/from of every piece of mail was stored and collected for surveillance purposes.  So putting my actual name/address could in theory have caused this letter to simply state that we would be in Spokane and meetup at the McDonald’s in downtown for lunch to be intercepted.  It was just a nice idea to be able to talk about the things of Christ and not have to worry that the person next to you eating a Big Mac wasn’t a federal agent listening and recording the conversation!


So then what would be done, at the time, would be this clean computer, not connected to me whatsoever and NEVER opened (due to WIFI/Bluetooth, etc.) at our actual home, would be started up outside a McDonald’s after hours, with the camera blocked with a bandaid.  Then a fake burner email account would be setup, even with a big name, though using fake information.  The cell phones would be registered, using false information and from cities far apart from each other (say Las Vegas, NV and Salt Lake City, UT).  Once they were active, an annual service card would be added, as well as minute cards, both of these purchased with cash.  The phone numbers would be written down.


One phone would be mailed to that person, these being basic flip phones WHERE THE CAMERA WAS BLOCKED BEFORE TURNING THEM ON (as it has been proven that the new cell phones, at least some, take pictures secretly when the phone is turned on or under other circumstances) inside a signal blocking bag that could be found online on ebay or other retailers.  There would also be some basic instructions, my cell phone number, the charger, etc.


This would be sent very expensive via overnight, to prevent any mischief.  Although, there were times that I had two separate packages that did not arrive overnight (though refunded) and I believe were intercepted.  One was a package to Fox News in NYC to a reporter that had requested to see copies of my FOIA documentation, the other was a hard drive that contained video footage of agents outside our home in Petoskey, Michigan, where we lived when the FBI finally found our location and proceeded to do whatever they were intending on doing.  The hard drive, though well packed, arrive completely wiped with no more footage. 


So then, essentially in an emergency, a phone call on a regular phone could be made to the person with the secret phone.  You could tell them, I am going to call you on the backup phone.


They would then have to get to a location, without their cell phone or any other trackable item (including a car with potentially Bluetooth (urban areas), RFID (hidden in the tire area of your vehicle, that tells you if you have a flat, but also accessible via readers hidden throughout the country on the smart surveillance grid system, better known as ITS or intelligence transportation system (the mechanisms behind all of those cameras and weird little towers you see while driving)).  That location should be very rural, even a hidden rural area in an urban area.


I remember when we lived in the Chicago area.  We could walk over to the eastside of Chicago from Whiting, IN, to go fishing on the Indiana side, only accessible from the Illinois side.  Interesting, but there were bad kids there sometimes in the area, doing what they do, as well as burnt out stolen cars, old foundations and shockingly, even woods.  It is possible to find areas like that, even in big cities, they are normally by the railroad tracks or in heavy industrial zones.  Then a phone call can be made and the next call can be planned afterwards. 


The other option and we had to use this when we were on the run and hiding in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, is the phone was already handed out to someone with instructions for how to use it.  The phone we had was simply on, so they could call from their specific location, anytime they wanted to.  We had nothing else to track us where we were at.  So knowing this, as society would presume to be ‘normal’ at the beginning, when problems really begin, then anything that can link you has to be eliminated…period.  Of course, note that this only works when you don’t have anything else tracking you at that location, you are already hiding, so there is no other cell phone pinging who you are or utilities, etc., in your name at the place.  Also note, we did not have our vehicle at this location.


When we were in hiding, we could not have our regular computer (we did have one), we could not have our cell phone or even our vehicle, of which they were looking for and had the public looking for.  We had our burner phone and an old laptop that we would occasionally use, knowing that when we read an article about ourselves online, we never clicked it more than once (law enforcement investigators know that those who commit crimes will also read the articles, so they are watching for suspicious activities with IP’s or tracking the IP’s to find the location of the person.)  In fact, though it is possible to find a MAC address changer (TMAC), all computers also have an identification number.  Currently our computer is switched with this software, though it can mess with your registration and cause a problem that way as well.


Back to the theoretical scenario: Having been left behind and found ourselves in the Tribulation, knowing that every purchase is tracked and traced, deciding what could and needs to be done to try and aid in what the Bible prophesies is going to happen, postponing the inevitable, my attention would be to consider food, a necessity of life, as well as water. 


I am well aware that a cell phone is literally a tracking device that provides incredible information to any government entity that will eventually be searching for us.  In fact credit cards, passports and other identification items or work related entry access cards all have readable chips and/or RFID in them.  Already I have an RFID blocker wallet and passport holder for our passports.  This way when I make a purchase with cash, I am not giving away my identity, with the exception of face recognition technology for stores that I might want to avoid making a big purchase of food, until it is no longer allowed, as the Bible clearly makes known that there will eventually be out of control pricing (Rev. 6:6), likely would relate with a worldwide famine, due to the cataclysmic judgments coming upon the earth, an outpouring of God’s wrath, particularly during the second half of the Tribulation. 


A decision still has to be made in order to decide what the best chance for longer survival, rather than a shorter duration would be.  While there would be no guarantees and likely technological advances have made it nearly impossible, even at the beginning, the assumption is that at the moment there is not going to be a knock at the door, but as time goes on, that likelihood will increase exponentially, until it comes to pass.  At that point a few things are going to be needed and that is food, water and some sort of shelter, somewhere, but where and how?


The first step taken is to get some supplies, in case limitations or shortages come on them, as well as get some cash to store, in case the bank limits the withdrawals.  Eventually we will not be able to buy or sell (Rev. 13:16-17) for as Christians we are going to absolutely refuse the mark of the beast. 


“And a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If anyone does homage to the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His anger. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone before the holy angels and before the Lamb.  And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who do homage to the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.  Here is the perseverance of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”  Revelation 14:9-12 VW-Edition


“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”  Revelation 14:9-12 KJV

“And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them; and I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the Word of God, who had not done homage to the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”  Revelation 20:4 VW-Edition


“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”  Revelation 20:4 KJV


Knowing that certain purchases can alert federal law enforcement agencies and instantly flag myself, I try to avoid the big online stores and shop locally to see if I can find some water purification tools, such as filtered drinking straws or tablets.  Eventually some of the water will turn to blood (Rev. 8:8; 16:4), but if we are on the run, drinking out of a stream or a lake or some other source that is not necessarily safe, we need to have a method easier than boiling water and collecting the steam.  I purchase what I can find with cash at an outdoor sporting goods store and am forced to purchase some off of the internet, due to scarcity in finding what I need to have locally.


Now the situation we find ourselves in financially is this. 


We have a small savings, not enough to stop working, not enough for numerous large purchases, but rather enough to perhaps purchase a stockpile of dried beans, rice and other more affordable foods that are likely to disappear sooner than later from the shelves or have limitations put on the purchases.  In fact the pricing is likely to be more, as I want to avoid the bigger stores who with face recognition would know who I am from past credit card purchases and I would also want to avoid using rewards/members accounts at other stores, so then the pricing will be full price.  Plus the food is not good for years to come, but has an average shelf life, creating a dilemma. 


Should we try to leave the country?  Well the problem is a lack of funds, borders can be heavily restricted and this is a worldwide problem, for the Bible clearly says that ‘he causes all’ (Rev. 13:16), in regards to the mark of the beast that will inevitably happen and at that point, if we are not already collected or targeted, we will be full enemies of the state.  This will happen no matter where we live.


With our low funds, all we could do is arrive to another country, rent a place temporarily, until we run out of money.  Getting a job is very difficult, especially one that pays cash, which will eventually be outlawed worldwide anyway for anyone who does not have the mark of the beast.  Difficult times are coming and the time is immediately at hand to decide what to do, so we axe the idea of going to another country to try and circumvent the system for a bit longer until we become martyrs for Jesus Christ.


In our case we are in Rapid City, South Dakota, right on the border of the Black Hills.  We must consider whether we are in a good location for longevity, as well as where to go to try and evade governmental authorities and the watchful eyes of citizens sometime in the future.  Is this the place to be?  How soon should we leave if it is not?


Right now we are still working, there is much more uncertainly in the world, however, money is necessary to get while it is easier than it will be.  For the world is going to quickly turn worse and worse, making COVID seem like a walk in the park.  However, armed with that experience of how the government, media, friends, family and neighbors behave regarding such scenarios as COVID, this provides a little insight in how to plan, knowing it will be much worse (Matt. 24:22).


Looking around our rented home, we realize that nearly everything will eventually have to be left behind, in order to survive.  So, before the situation gets worse, we decide to continue working, planning on where to go, what to buy and what to do.  The first step is to greatly reduce our bills, as we know that eventually mankind will work all day, just to eat, so why pay for anything unnecessary right now. 


Every single bill that can be stopped is immediately cancelled.  Every light that does not need to be on is kept off, every drop of gas in the vehicle that does not need to be used is not used.  We walk when we can, we also immediately begin to eat as cheaply as possible, in order to save as much cash as possible, though we also splurge for one final favorite meal.


Using the Bible as our guide, we decide not to use credit that we know we can not payback to make purchases (Exod. 20:15).  The thought is the creditors will eventually make credit much more difficult, if not impossible to obtain.  However, knowing that eventually our income will be drastically cut, eventually completely cutoff, we also would only pay the minimum required, if we had credit card debt, would even have moved those accounts to lower interest, if we could have or even refinanced our vehicle, had we had a payment.


In our case we didn’t have a vehicle payment, but we decide to try and sell our vehicle for a higher amount and purchase a cheaper vehicle that will work for a few years, if we can find one, we begin to search that out.


In the meantime, every household good that we have that can be sold, that is unnecessary, with the exceptions of some of the children’s favorites, we begin to sell, for whatever price we can get for the items.  Eventually a kitchen table will not suffice for us, so we sell it and simply purchase a used one at a thrift store. 


We also begin to hide Bible Salvation tracts that we already had, behind mirrors in public businesses, so that someone might come across it during the future.  For we know that eventually there will not only be earthquakes, but a great earthquake (Rev. 16:18; Isaiah 30:25) and these catastrophic events will cause those mirrors to come down eventually, allowing the tract to be found by someone. 


Things still have some sense of normalcy, as the Rapture just happened, but we are trying to quickly and quietly (not raising eyebrows of the government surveillance system) get prepared to make things as smoothly as they will turn out to be, however they may turn out. 


Next our attention begins to turn to where to go, for eventually the comfort of our home will not be available to us.  We can either stay and enjoy it, until the satanic world government authorities haul us away or we can make a run for it, before it is too late.  Now our attention turns where to go on limited resources, having made the most of the resources we had.


We have been studying our Bible, the book of Revelation, Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah, as well as reading through the entire Bible in a matter of three months since the Rapture happened.  We needed to understand, to the best of our ability, what the Bible has prophesied will happen, in order to decide what to do. 


While we certainly don’t understand all of the mysteries (2 Thes. 2:7; Rev. 17:5), our reliance is on God’s Word, not what someone says will or will not happen in the future.  Can they be trusted?  They also were left behind, so for us, our trust will be in God alone, He will be our guide, even unto death (Psalms 48:14).


We accept our responsibility for having been left behind, for being careless about the things of God, about following Christ, or rather not truly following Him, but rather just believing He existed and not actually serving Him, but rather focusing on worldly pursuits, with an unrepentant heart. 


We know that the Judgments of God are righteous and true (Rev. 16:7) and we are thankful that Christ still Saved us during this time (2 Cor. 9:15), that we will eventually inherit eternity with Him (Eph. 1:11; Heb. 9:15).  Now as good soldiers of Jesus Christ (2 Tim. 2:3) as the world prepares for the final battle of mankind against their very Creator, we are on the winning side, though we will lose our lives (Mark 8:36), we will come back with Him for the final battle of Armageddon (Zec. 14:5), where He will destroy those gathered for battle (Rev. 14:20; Rev. 16:16)


We decide to print out more tracts and purchase a few more, those that are biblical, like the one found on All Will Stand’s website on the top right corner, called What Jesus Did on the Cross.  They need to preach repentance, they need to preach remission of sins, they need to talk about what Jesus did due on the Cross for me and every other person who wants to accept the free gift of Salvation, available to all, except those who worship the image of the beast or take the mark of the beast (Rev. 14:9-10)


These we will leave here and there, placing some in people’s hands, before our plight.  We also went form thrift store to thrift store purchasing the best translations of the Bible (KJV, NKJV, etc.), in order to hand those out, knowing that eventually the Bible will be difficult or impossible to find (Amos 8:11).  Anyone who listens, while we can speak, for the night has come and is coming:


“It is necessary for Me to work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one is able to work.”  John 9:4 VW-Edition


“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”  John 9:4 KJV


Those who listen, who have interest and don’t have a Bible, we try to provide them a copy and let them seek after God themselves, knowing they have all of the tools they need to do so.  We do not mingle with discussions of preparing, what to do, where to go, what to buy or anti-satanic one world government discussions with anyone, but rather Christ alone (1 Cor. 2:2).  We don’t have time for these conversations and decide they are unfruitful.  What advice can be given, except to repent towards God and accept the free gift of Salvation?


Any other advice might very well turn out to be wrong, for who can know how exactly how things are going to play out and what the individual circumstances might be.  Though we ponder if we find another person/family that we truly believe have become Saved, we might consider to pool our resources and work together, after prayerful discussions.


“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor.  For if they fall, the one will lift up his companion; but woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he does not have another to help him up.  Again, if two lie together, then they have warmth; but how can one be warm alone?  And if one overpowers him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”  Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 VW-Edition


“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.  Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?  And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”  Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 KJV


We decide to purchase some basic foods that can be transported, can freeze, can be stored in a hidden location or locations, for we know that we will not be able to purchase food.  We also make sure that we have our guns working well and a reasonable amount of ammunition right away.  We also made sure that we didn’t sell any camping gear, fishing poles or anything that might provide some future aid when we attempt to run from the satanic world government authorities, the sworn enemies of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior (Jacob (James) 4:4)


Our thoughts turn on how to get some food in the future.  We are aware of the stories of Texas nearly exhausting the supply of wild deer during the Great Depression and with that knowledge, we know that people will also be hunting legally or illegal, as well as fishing legally or illegally.  These resources will quickly diminish and the danger of hunting will greatly increase, as the countenance of the animals will change (Rev. 6:8).


Also, we consider supplying the area and where to hide the food and other necessities, in a world where God’s Holy Spirit will have been taken away and mankind will become exceedingly violent (Rev. 6:4)


We know that we retain the right to self defense, but prefer to avoid the situation as best as possible.  In regards to those who seek our life solely because we are Christians, for those we place our weapons down, knowing that our life is in God’s hands, but we remember for all others that even Jesus said to go and buy a sword (Luke 22:36), but we don’t have on hand more than what we already had, for clearly, Jesus was not promoting an arsenal of weapons (Luke 22:38)


Our lives, our times, are ultimately in His hands.


“My times are in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.”  Psalms 31:15 VW-Edition


“My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.”  Psalms 31:15 KJV


Our search of locations began across the northern states, looking at heavily wooded areas, that are far from people.  We considered these, knowing that a gun shot can be heard for miles, so how far away must we be.  There are relatively few places that are miles from civilization and wooded, with the exception of privately owned land in northern Maine. 


Though we realize that the Bible prophesies that there will be massive fires and the trees will be burned up (Rev. 8:7; Joel 1:14-20), we also contemplate that others will be running from the government, taking game in the woods, as well as murderers, who might very well stumble across us and kill us for whatever they might gain from us. 


We realize that the northern border is more secure that most people think.  That the government had long ago hid metal detectors in wooded areas, in order to alert them to people crossing an international border into or from Canada.  We realize that overhead are drones and surveillance satellites that can easily track a tree falling or a plume of smoke from a fire.  Plus the winters are harsh and without a 4-season tent, with a specialized mini wood stove to keep the inhabitant alive, even during fairly harsh weather, we would be dependent on finding an abandoned hunting cabin or having to look further south, in perhaps the Appalachian mountain area. 


We also consider the larger cities, such as Chicago, that have large amounts of abandoned industry, perhaps a factory or other sites that we could have (multiple locations) to hide out in.  Knowing the dangers from people seeing us would be high, as well as the likelihood of a violent encounter, it still provides some sort of housing, plus many locations to easily store some food hidden here and there. 


Each idea seems to have some plusses and many negatives.  We know this is a losing battle, that ultimately the battle will result in our deaths and the victory will have been in Christ (1 Cor. 15:57).  Yet, we don’t want to simply put our hands in the air for even though David was promised to be the king of Israel, he set an example of fleeing from Saul.


Yet this is worldwide persecution coming during this time, one where EVERY city will be hostile toward Believers.  Every person will be ready to report anything they see to the satanic government authorities, to help aid them in collecting us, they might even themselves hold us at gunpoint until the authorities come.  Every non-believer is our enemy, they are on Satan’s side and their godless attitude will persist, unless they too accept the free gift of Salvation. 


Looking at our resources, the fact that the forest will be burned up, we begin to look locally, where we can make the most of those limited resources.  Do we hide food in sealed five gallon buckets, buried here and there in the Black Hills?  How do we keep warm during the winter? 


Eventually thought the sun will scorch with intense heating, causing men to blaspheme their Creator (Rev. 16:8-9), so do we even have to worry about these cold winters when that time comes? 


Whenever our plight comes, we won’t be able to freely drive around.  The intelligent transportation system cameras throughout the United States will quickly detect our movement, that is assuming that there will not be checkpoints.  So we know that our decision has to be fairly quick and final, as we continue working to gain as many assets as we can, paying our bills, as the Lord allows financially, until we are forced to run and have no choice but to drop our income due to the judgments of mankind coming upon the inhabitants of the earth. 


“And I saw, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”  Revelation 8:13 VW-Edition


“And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”  Revelation 8:13 KJV


Ultimately, there are so many variables, there is the impossibility of never getting caught as a Believer, we simply decide to stock up on useful supplies, mainly food, as anonymously as we can, as well as some other items to cook that food and try to remain hidden, even doing counter-surveillance when we ultimately plan on trying to run, prior to the knock on the door. 


We know that there will eventually be empty house after empty house (Zep. 3:1-8), as billions of people will die during the Tribulation and man will become few (Isaiah 24:6), but we do not expect to make it much past the second half of the Tribulation.  Our plight will probably only provide us with a short extension of time, if we are even successful in doing that, God-willing. 


In our decision, we accept our fault for not having truly served Jesus Christ and consider our blessings that were bestowed upon us and Him still having mercy (Psalms 36:5), having Saved us.  We purchase a certain measure of food, not seven years worth, as we do not expect to make it that far, but enough to provide some meager portions for a certain period of time.  We ultimately were unable to find a solution for longevity, for the only solution was Jesus Christ, though we prepare, with enough clothing and shoes for aging children, to be able to make a run for it until we are caught.


The theoretical section of this chapter has ended.  Ultimately what resources are available, preciously where one lives, what their circumstances are (perhaps they are caring for an ill child or family member), what exactly happens, when it happens, these will remain a mystery and it would not be wise for any Christian to write anything that would be presumptuous regarding what the Bible prophesies will come.


“For I testify to everyone who hears the Words of the Prophecy of this Book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add upon him the plagues that are written in this Book; and if anyone takes away from the Words of the Book of this Prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this Book.”  Revelation 22:18-19 VW-Edition


“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”  Revelation 22:18-19 KJV


What was done is going over some thoughts that would have occurred to me had I been left behind and realized it, immediately after the event.  As you can clearly see, where to go, what to do, with our current realities for our family, based in actuality in this fictitious scenario of what we would do, looking at the non-fictitious things that the Bible has prophesied will occur during this time period, as well as things known to the author about government surveillance in the United States, are a way of simply giving some advice for discussions that inevitably many people will be having during this timeframe, but yet have no clue what the Bible states will occur or what they are already up against.


The longer before the Rapture happens the harder these scenarios will be.  In 5 years the surveillance will be greater, in 10 years will any possibility be of temporary escape?  Could there be a nuclear war between now and the Rapture?  There are threats as this is being written.


This is written for those left behind, not for those prior.  Prior people need to avoid these circumstances and simply repent towards God and by faith believe into Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, living their lives to the fullest for Him.  Afterwards the answer is still the same, but the world in which one lives will now be under His divine judgment, with the fullness of the mystery of iniquity (2 Thes. 2:7)


Whatever you decide to do, use the Bible as your guide, not breaking God’s laws in doing the things you chose.  Does becoming a thief become acceptable now?  Does God’s law change, does He change (Malachi 3:6)


“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.”  Hebrews 13:8 VW-Edition


“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”  Hebrews 13:8 KJV


Likewise, the Bible is the real Tribulation handbook, the guide that will prepare your heart more and more to meet your Creator.  Salvation is the key to winning the battle, the war is won by Christ. 


“Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?  And I said to him, Sir, you know. So he said to me, These are the ones coming out of great affliction, and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.  Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them.  They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not fall on them, nor any burning heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”  Revelation 7:13-17 VW-Edition


“And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?  And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.  Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.  They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.  For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”  Revelation 7:13-17
