Have you ever heard the term “Preppers?” These are people preparing for Armageddon and have their garages packed with goods to survive when the food shortages happen. You can watch videos on how to get ready for the end of the world and have enough to survive. For the saints, during the tribulation, they will be equipped to endure by following the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.
Tough Times Ahead
The tribulation will be a tough time for everyone who remains on earth. There will be food shortages, water will be damaged and undrinkable, and pervasive pests and plagues will cover the earth. Those saints who started to follow Jesus during the tribulation will be equipped to endure the difficulties. It will take strict adherence to the Word of God and strong faith, but they will make it.
This should be a warning to all Christians in the days that we live because many are putting minimal effort into their faith. Matthew 24:9 says that many will fall away. They will either give up or be led astray by false prophets. You can see this happening today, with many never returning once COVID closed so many churches. You can only assume they think they are going to make it into heaven.
Equipped to Endure
It is crucial that you get equipped to endure in the final days. You need to know Scripture and be able to understand the culture in which you live. The way things used to be is gone, and a new dawn in society has arisen. People don’t believe in God anymore, and they are antagonistic. If you are full of faith and your hope firmly planted in Jesus, you will get run over.
