Plans

Plan #1 Without being pessimistic/dramatic the world will take a distinct downturn (Rev. Dan. etc). The fact of not being able to buy/sell (Rev13.17) shows a struggle for food. Markets may not be there or not available to you. (Or, as unimaginable as it is, a depression, greater than the Great, can happen.) Today you can access the net for info on ways to make-do. The net may disappear (or be unavailable). Unless you have country-grandparents from whom to take notes, I urge you to search the net and, Hear Me, make notes. You can cut & paste ideas, feed them to your printer, & thus have them if/when electricity is off.

Plan #2 Water is the 1st concern (you can live days without food-not nearly as long without water). What to do if/when spigots go dry. “I don’t even want to think about it.” Agreed, but this post is urging you to think now, so you’ll have an idea if/when you need it. The net can give plan A or plan B; print them off. Something on the net may prod your mind into other areas; write them down. I’m not into “saving earth” but write so you, friend, may live, God willing, even in harsh times.

Plan #3 Do you know natural edibles? Easily recognized are berries: blackb., black/red raspb., strawb. dew b.,etc. Nuts are also recognized & unlike berries can be harvested longer & preserved, unless berries are dried. Asparagus can grow wild & is good raw. Mushrooms can be good or very bad – use net to see difference. Various “weeds” are edible (leaf or shoot, flower or root) but you’ll need to know which. Some wild foods require cooking/frying. I encourage you to study those who don’t. Don’t assume “If birds/squirrels eat it I can” & if push-comes-to-shove, eat a little of the new food, then later a little more.

Plan #4 The locusts John the Baptist ate were probably insects, not tree seeds. Few, if any of us, relish eating insects, worms or larger animals, if they’re not camouflaged with spices etc. Yet it won’t hurt to see what the net teaches about catching, trapping, fixing wild game. Some fish may have too much mercury when all’s well, but if starving will do. You may want to learn about smoking, drying, sugar-curing, pickling, larger animals to eat at a later date.

Plan #5 If these posts nudge you to read & therefore assist through a lengthy economic struggle, great. If you live to see the no buy/sell time of Rev., allow 3 thoughts. 1.) Don’t seek martyrdom – if it comes do NOT deny Christ to live – but Scripture doesn’t encourage volunteering for such (“But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another…”Mat 10.23). 2.) Never rationalize, in dire circumstances, it’d be better to take your own life. (If you kill me you can ask forgiveness but if you kill yourself you’re not here to ask forgiveness.) Your death for Christ will be a witness to others: fellow believers, or persecutors. 3) Never, NEVER, N E V E R take the mark, number, name of the man of sin – seals your eternal doom!
