Storing Food Now to Survive Taking the Mark of the Beast During the Great Tribulation Period

This article answers the question, what are the merits and demerits of stack-piling food, water and other necessities now, as a survival leverage against taking the Mark of the Beast during the Great Tribulation period?  Perhaps, some of you do not know what the Great Tribulation is, so let’s begin with a brief explanation of that. It will help you to understand the essence of this article.

 Great Tribulation Briefly Explained

“The great tribulation” referred to by Jesus in His Olivet discourse on the time of the end is recorded in the Gospel of Matthew (24:21). The great tribulation is a popular biblical and theological teaching that says, there will be seven years of intense global suffering such as the world has never seen. During this time, there will be a one-world-government, under a satanic dictator known as the Antichrist. He is also called, the beast, the man of sin, and the lawless one (Rev.13:1-10; 2 Thess.2: 3-12). He will be in control of the earth and all its available resources. He will force all humankind to worship him, and will achieve this goal through deception, the control of global commerce including food, and a biometric system known as the mark of the beast (Rev.13: 8, 16).

The Antichrist will have a sidekick known as the False Prophet; he is the second beast of Revelation (13:11-18). His will be a religious-political leader whose job is the enforcement of the religious and economic policies of the Antichrist. He will get really mean, nasty in the second three and a half of the seven years. To survive, you must take the mark of the beast or be hunted down and killed.

From the atmospheric heaven, Jesus will call for His church (this is called, the rapture) just before the seven years start or at the mid-point of the seven years (1Thess.4:13-18). The rapture is not the Second Coming of Christ, that will come later. Jesus will return to earth with His church at end of the seven years Satanic rule (this is the Second Coming). He will crush the Antichrist and his military armada (Rev.19:11-21). Then Jesus will setup His throne in Jerusalem and rule over the earth for thousand years; this is called, the millennium (Rev.20:1-6). This is followed by the Final Judgment (Rev. 20:7-15).

Now, all of this is prophetically true; it is history written before it happens. Of course, the church world doesn’t all teach it exact same way. I have written two books on this that will give you a better understanding of what is coming and what to do. They are: The Master List Uncovered and The Book of Life & The Books of Wrath.

Storing Food Now as a Survival Strategy

There are individuals and ministries right now marketing food and other necessities to the public to help them survive this global times of suffering. Grant it, it is an excellent but deceptive marketing gimmick. Excellent because it identifies a desperate need during a desperate time. Deceptive because if you truly understand the Bible and that period of time—you should know full well that there will be nowhere to hide. So, you are giving false hope to a gullible and unsuspecting people.

There are only three options concerning that time. (1) Be sure you are not here when all this is happening. There is only one place you could be and that is in heaven with Jesus. (2) If you are here and want to go to heaven, you must refuse the mark of the beast and be killed. (3) If you are here you take the mark of the beast and live well; this means, you throw in your lot with Satan and will spend your eternity with you know where.

Why Storing Food Won’t Work

  1. You would have to store enough food, water, and other necessities for a minimum of three and a half years; the ideal would be seven years.
  2. Where on earth are you going to store that quantity of food that only you and your immediate family know about it? You cannot store it where you now live. It would have to be in a deep cave in some faraway, isolated place that you don’t emerge from for at least 3 ½ years. There can be no contact with the outside world, because you run the risk of being found out. And I am not sure, you can hide from Satan. If you are here on earth, Satan will know where you are; His human police will find you.
  3. The government that is controlled by Satan will be searching for you, using all its electronic surveillance systems, including: satellite, drones, and heat-seeking technology. If you emerge once from your cave, it is over for you. Some satellite or drone or human will spot you.


These kinds of gimmicks usually hurt the cause of the gospel, especially during such a time when millions are fleeing from churches. It would be much better to preach the gospel and encourage people to get registered in the Book of Life now rather than making preparation to out-smart the Antichrist. It is a silly scheme. Being registered to the Book of Life now is the only guaranteed ticket out of here. Learn how from the Book of Life.

Might over Rights

Where are the children, where are the girls seized by the Trump Administration?

Are we now borrowing a page from the terrorist organization, Boco Haram, to supplement our immigration policy? “In 2014, more than 200 girls were kidnapped by Boco Haram in Nigeria,” and there was a worldwide outcry, but they held on to those girls for years, some were never returned. The taking of children without parental consent is kidnapping? It does not matter who is doing it.

The executive order signed by the President today (6/20/18) does not do very much. The government should find all the children that they took, track down the parents and reunite them. There is what is called, “parental rights” which can be voluntarily surrendered by parents or terminated by a court on the grounds of permanent abandonment. These parents have not surrendered their rights or abandoned their children. They were seized!

The government has a legal and moral obligation to reunite these children with their families. Think of another country like Iran doing that to a group of U.S. citizens who unwittingly entered in their territory by air, land or sea. That would be war! What on earth make us think that all children are not precious in the eyes of the Creator!

Why aren’t the governments of the three countries from when these children came uniting with one voice demanding the return of these children? Why is this violation of human rights not called that or kidnapping?

The U.S. has a right to protect its borders, but the United State government does not have the political will to do it. You have all these bright men and women in government, many with law degrees from Ivy League university but acting like fools, divided by party interests, not the interest of the country.

We Should Take Warning

These are the kinds of activities that upset nature’s God to unleash the forces of nature on us. Volcanoes getting disturb, floods, wild-fire, earthquakes, and hurricanes are all instruments that can be used to discipline a country for supporting a proud and arrogant government. These disasters can deplete the wealth of a country and bring it to its knees. Keep convincing yourself that all nature’s activities are just purely science.

We are a generous country, but our generosity of the past does not count if we become selfish and brutal. By the way, we must pray for our government ministers, but call them out as the 600 bishops of the United Methodist Church did this week. It appears as if half of the evangelical Christians are behaving like the apostate church riding the beast of Revelation 17 (see the Book of Life); they are blindly blessing what clearly goes against the written text of Scripture.

Christmas celeb


First, let me shout, A blessed and Merry Christmas to all my Christian and non-Christian friends! And happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends!

Do you know that some of my Christian friends refuse to celebrate Christmas! Why? They said, that is not Jesus’ birthday! December was too cold for shepherds to be in the fields caring for sheep, so the birth could not have been this time of the year. So, they are not celebrating, that’s fine.  I get it. But, they don’t stop there, they are trying to spoil it for everybody else based on this technicality.

I almost miss out on my own birthday based on the same technicality. My mother told me I was born in a given month on a particular day; I figured She must be right, because she was there. My birth was not a walk in the park. So, it was not the kind of experience a woman would forget.

Well, I grew up, got a copy of my birth certificate, and to my surprise the date is different from what my mother told me. That put me in a quandary, who do I believe! My mother or the piece of paper? For several years I just couldn’t decide, so I celebrated no birthday.

After a while I said, this is foolish, so I celebrated both. And for a while it was fun, when people missed my birthday and thought they were off the hook for a gift—I said, I have another one coming up. Well, I am back to celebrating one, just one! The one I have documentation for. I also learn that my situation is not unique, that many of my country folks have the same experience.

I have not spoken to Mary, the Mother of Jesus, on this birthday issue or ask her for the birth certificate of her Son, and I am sure you have not done so either. Perhaps, the midwife that assisted in the manger kept a copy. Did I say midwife? The important thing is not the when or where He was born, but the fact that He was born. So, drop the technicality and let’s celebrate. Merry Christmas!

You are Weighed in the Balances and Found Wanting


You are weighed in the balances and found wanting (Dan.5:27)


It was a Who’s Who party hosted by the king for his top executives. It was held in the opulent west-wing ballroom of the palace; luxuriously appointed, no expenses spared, no refined detail overlooked. The guests were elegantly dressed; the king was graced with wives and concubines at his side. The Babylonian orchestra entertained with music and dancing-girls. The menu was extravagant; the wine was from the king’s own special collection, delicious, and plentiful.

The party was in high gear, everybody in good spirit; the king was himself entertaining. But still wanting to impress his guests, set about to further humiliate the exiled Jews in his kingdom. Many served the present and previous administration with exceptional skill and loyalty. The king called for the holy vessels taken from Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem that his predecessor had enough sense to put away in safekeeping, not desecrating them with common use.

The holy vessels arrived in the banqueting hall close to midnight; the rest of the city is quiet and asleep, but the playboy king was at his happy hour. He called for wine to be poured into these holy vessels to serve his wives and concubines. It about that time heaven said, that it! You have gone too far!

Suddenly, there appeared a disembodied hand writing on the palace wall. Everybody froze, and the hall went eerie quiet. The king began to shake, his tongue stuttered as he called for his intelligence officials to read the writing on the wall, but none could. Somebody shouted from across the hall, O king live forever! There is a Jew in your kingdom that interpreted the dreams of your predecessor. He has the spirit of the gods in him!

They rushed Daniel into the banquet hall, perhaps still in his pajamas. The king still shaking with fright said, I will give you anything if you can read this writing and tell me its meaning! Well, don’t you love. Daniel took his sweet time to first give the king a good tongue lashing about his debauched lifestyle. Telling him he did not learn a thing from what God did to his predecessor, Nebuchadnezzar. God humbled him, and he had enough sense to acknowledge the God of heaven as the King of kings, but you Belshazzar learned nothing from that, how to fear God.

Well, let me read this writing and give you the meaning: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN.

  • Mene: God has numbered the days of you reign and brought it to an end.
  • Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting
  • Parsin (Peres): Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.

Babylon fell that night and the king was dead before the next sunrise. Everybody takes note, you cannot play with God and mistreat His people for long and get away with. The chickens have a way to come home to roost. That means a day of reckoning comes for everybody, kings, presidents, governors, and ordinary folks, either here or hereafter. (Read the full story in Daniel 5).

A Season to be Thankful

                              Oh, Give Thanks unto the Lord for He is Good!


First, let me say a blessed and happy thanksgiving to all!

2017 so far, has been a rough and disastrous year for many: hurricane, earthquake, flood, wild-fire, church shootings, military ambush, financial reverses, and health challenges. Yet, for all that, if you are alive there is something to be thankful for. It is true, a living dog is far better than a dead lion. The dog has hope to see another sunrise, not the lion. In other words, life gives us a hope and a future, something to celebrate.

It is strange that from last year to the beginning months of 2017, I spent much time answering the questions people asked about their personal flourishing. Here are the questions they ask me: Why so many talk blessing, but there are little to no fruits of blessing upon their lives? They live with constant lack, could there be a curse preventing some people from flourishing? Bless and Curse Not, is my answer to these questions.

Even here in the United States, the land of enormous wealth and abundance, there are still people who are dirt poor, and cannot make two ends meet. There are many causes to the problem of poverty including bad social policies, lack of education, lack of opportunity, to name a few. I don’t think blaming the victim absolves a society from providing for its own. Caring for the poor is an act of mercy. We read these words from our Lord, “Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy” (Matt.5:7).

Finally, lack or poverty is not only result of social policies and the other reasons named, but in some cases, it is a spiritual problem that cause resources to dry up for some people. This includes curses that people live under for years. People can ignorantly curse their own blessing, because “the tongue has the power of life and death” (Prov.18:21). These issues are addressed in Bless and Curse Not. Thanksgiving and Christmas are seasons of giving, put this resource on your gift list; it will certainly bless someone many years to come.

A blessed Thanksgiving!
