To the Editor:
September is National Preparedness Month and the 2022 theme is, “A lasting legacy.”
The life you’ve built is worth protecting. Prepare for disasters to create a lasting legacy for you and your family.
National Preparedness Month is used to encourage Americans to take steps to plan and prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, communities and schools that could happen at any time. National Preparedness Month) is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to higher prices and food shortages there is no better time to be involved than this September.
Greater disasters are coming. Experts say every family should keep a full tank of gas, have a preplanned meeting place, flashlights, batteries, first aid kit, duct tape and plastic sheeting. Experts say have a month’s supply of water, canned or non-perishable food and non-electric can opener, and Vitamin C, which is great for cold and flu relief and helps your immune system.
Proverbs 30 praises ants as “extremely wise” for storing up many months of food. The book of Proverbs twice says, “A wise man for sees evil and hides himself; but the simple pass on and are punished.” It would be wise to have a year supply of food and water! In Tennessee the sales tax holiday on food ends on August 31, 2022. So it would be wise to stock up while you don’t have to pay tax on food. In these end days the Bible teaches disasters will increase. Things can change quickly and our government can’t protect us from everything and we should plan ahead and value preparedness. People need to prepare spiritually for death by trusting and having a saving relationship with Jesus. Call 1-888-need him. The most important preparedness or the ultimate preparedness is found only in Jesus.
Disasters strike at anytime without notice. The Bible says in the future a disaster will happen when people are saying, “peace and safety.” The United Nations (U.N.) established The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) and it’s observed around the world each year on September 21. The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5, “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child and they shall not escape.” Also the 77th U.N. will discuss dividing
Israel beginning on September 20, 2022. The Bible says God will destroy countries that divide Israel in the end days. A world-wide famine is coming. Most countries have grown less food than ever because of fires, drought, floods and other disasters. Also, some countries controlled by environmentalists have outlawed fertilizer claiming it’s bad for the environment. Crop levels worldwide are at the lowest levels because of the high cost of fertilizer and the U.N. working to outlaw fertilizer. More of the world have more wildfires than ever. A record number of food processing plants in America have burned. Some of the western American states have their worse water shortage ever recorded. The Bible says in the future during the tribulation a day’s wages will buy a little bread for one person. One Christian dreamed of $70-a gallon-gas in America during the tribulation. China is also working to crash the American dollar and destroy the American economy according to Kevin Freeman. China plans to take over Taiwan before the end of this year and plans to take over America before the end of 2024 according to Steven DeNoon. DeNoon says food and water shortages are coming to America. Dr. Peter Pry says the greatest threat to America is destruction of the electric power grid. The electric power grid could be destroyed by an EMP from the sun or from a nuclear bomb high above America or by terrorists or computer hackers. This would kill the majority of those in the cities from starvation.
People in Carter County could survive off of plants like kudzu and dandelions. According to Clare Lopez, Iran has terror cells in the U.S. awaiting orders to strike as they did on 9-11. It’s believed we now have thousands of terrorists in America because of the millions of illegals that have come into America. Evil demonic terrorists gave us 9-11 but only Jesus gives us peace 24-7.
Christians need to store up extra food to help others when disasters happen. The Bible says help first your families and churches. Most of all, Christians need to share the gospel of how Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose and is coming again. Christians don’t agree on when the rapture is but most agree it’s close. Some Christians believe the rapture is very possible on the Feast of Trumpets which is in late
September 2022. See www.unsealed.org. Jewish people called the Feast of Trumpets the feast that no one knows the day or hour of because it began when the moon was seen over the temple. Sadly 2 Peter 3 says, “that there shall come in the last day scoffers, walking after their own lust and saying where is the promise of his (Jesus) coming?” Are you ready and watching for Jesus’ return or are you a scoffer?
Watchers get a crown and get a trip to heaven and scoffers get to try to survive the seven-year tribulation. If Jesus comes in September it will be a September to remember! One things for sure. “It won’t be as long as it has been.” I like what one pastor says, “see you at church Sunday the good Lord willing and the church don’t rise!”
