The Shock Plan for Getting Ready – Putting It All Together

As I think about all that I have written in this series, I wonder if I have lost my mind. But, when I look out over the world and the insanity of everything that is happening, I am forced to agree with everything that I have written. Worse, there is much more to tell and write on this topic of preparation, but the author of that will need to be yourself. (Although, I will continue to write on this topic in the future.)

You MUST prepare for what is coming, but no one can really tell you everything that you need to do. That’s your job, and I hope that what I’ve written has given you a starting point to begin your own journey on the road to preparation. So, let’s take a moment to look over what I’ve talked about.

I started talking about this a week ago, Thursday. And, I began with the three things that you must have before you even start:

  • Personal Responsibility
  • Long term thinking
  • Jesus, Our Lord and Savior – the most important of all.

Without those three… you literally have no hope. Then, I launched into your first step:

Step 1 – Hold God Close

This verse encapsulates the point:

Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. – James 4:8

If you think that you can survive what’s coming without a close relationship with God, think again. Here is what Jesus said when His frightened disciples asked about how to survive the disasters that we see coming:

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.Luke 21:36

That’s why Luke 21:36 will always be the touchstone for this website. It is the single most important message you need for your survival.

For those of you who claim to know Jesus. I remind you that the demons know Jesus. There is a question that you MUST ask instead.

Does Jesus know YOU?

Step 2 – Location, Location, Location

Outside of your relationship with God, there is NOTHING more important than security. Without security, food and water will be meaningless. And, THAT means finding good neighbors and a secure community. You cannot do this alone. You cannot.

Read over the Step 2 article that is linked above. There are quite a few resources there and much to think about.

Are you in a safe place?

Step 3 – Food and Water

Our food and water distribution networks are appallingly fragile, and we have nothing to back those networks up. When the system fails, there is a high probability that you will be abruptly thrown back in time to the 19th century, where you ate what you grew and drank what you could find.

We don’t know how to do that, anymore. And, you MUST prepare for disruptions to the basic necessities of life.

And frankly, you really don’t have anything to lose, by making these preparations.

Do you have a secure access to water and food?

Step  4 – Money and Other Things of Value

After you have secured a safe place, purchased extra food and ensured a source of water… hopefully, you will have extra money. That’s a wonderful place to be, but now you have to keep from losing it.

After all, we ARE to be good stewards of what God has given us.

Furthermore, it’s hard to know what the future holds, and it’s important to have something of value that we can use to procure what we might need.

Whatever you do, do NOT keep your money in a bank or any other financial institution.

And, make sure that you have been giving a portion of your financial blessings to God. You cannot expect help from God, if you have withheld your money from Him.

Are your finances secure?


There are so many ways that our world could fall apart. But, that doesn’t mean that we ignore the most likely possibilities. In this section, I took you through:

  • Financial Collapse
  • EMP or Z-Class Solar Flare
  • Natural Disaster

And then, I went into the need to think this through and develop a plan. Mental preparation and a well-thought-out plan could mean the difference between life and death.

Do you have a plan?

It’s Personal

This is probably the hardest part of all. Your responsibilities and commitments may make it impossible to do everything that I have talked about. Or, maybe your health keeps you fixed in one place. You also might be suffering under crushing debt. But, there is still much that we can do, and there is hope.

We have a God, and He IS involved.

Are you still in the game?

In the End…

There will be times, as you go through the process of preparation when you think that you’ve gone insane. Everyone else will certainly think that you have. But, only a truly insane person sees trouble in the future and does nothing about it.

You are not insane. In fact, you are one of the most rational people on the planet. Do not let our insane world dissuade you from preparing.

And, while you do all that:

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. – Luke 21:36

As I say in almost all of my articles…

Are you ready for this?

May God bless you, and hold you close.

I pray for you all.


note – I am not offering financial or disaster preparation advice in a professional capacity. These are merely my own thoughts on what I would do in these situations.
