Have you watched the show “Doomsday Preppers” and thought that this show is really weird? Why would these people work so hard and spend so much money to develop tactical skills of combat, fire resistant buildings, and underground shelters? Have they stumbled upon something that has caused them to spend so much time doing this or is it a schizophrenic action?
I believe these preppers are on to something, but will it work? Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain (Psalm 127:1). Can they really prepare against a natural man empowered with supernatural power from Satan, using natural tools? Can they hide from God’s judgment? Actually, they can (John 3:16).
Christians must understand the battlefield. Christians must understand that we will always be at war against principalities and our inner desires to worship pleasure. Christians must be doomsday preppers, but not in the building of underground tunnels, but in seeking first the kingdom of God. Natural tools will not save you. You will either die at the hand of another person, sickness, or old age. No matter how much money you spend to prepare. Only God can save you.
