John 6:51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world."
The first day of our Ready Now Expo had the perfect closing. Rick Wiles surprised the audience with an inspirational message “The Prepper’s Ultimate Survival Kit.” Rick discussed why he supports prepping by using the story of Joseph who prophesied to the Pharaoh about 7 years of plenty and then famine. He reminded the audience that Joseph stored food in multiple cities, and asked. “If Joseph hadn’t stored food, how many people would have died? The fact that he was obedient, kept people alive.”
“We are all learning about the Shemitah and we are living in a time of multiple cycles.” Rick explained. “This could be the return of Jesus Christ, or this could be another historical rollover of cycles. Only God knows the timing.” He added that whether or not we were entering the Tribulation period, something “monumental” was happening in the world. Because of the many events that are coming, he urged the importance of not only preparing for ourselves, but also for the the generations who will come after us.
“Prepping is Biblical!” Showing his support for Jim Bakker and the ministry, Mr. Wiles stated firmly, “ Pastor Jim has been tenacious and obedient in warning people. And because he’s been obedient…I don’t know how many people have stored food!”
Mr. Wiles was wonderful about helping the audience remember that the ultimate survival Kit is from God. The best security system is when you have the Lord in your heart and it is His wisdom that will guide you through the worst of times.
Prepping is Biblical. But, it is most important to prep yourself spiritually. This message sets the tone of our week together here at Morningside and for the hundreds of people attending our incredible August 2015 Ready Now Expo!
