    “Hurt not the wine and oil.” Revelation. the rider of the pale horse. Many have interpreted this to mean the rich will have their plenty. But the rest of the story reveals that no matter how deep you dig The Judge will still find you.

    • Korheg says:

      Thats for sure, just check out: “Revelation 6:15″ in any bible or google it.

    • Michele B. says:

      “Where can I go from your Spirit?
      Where can I flee from your presence?
      If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
      if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
      If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
      if I settle on the far side of the sea,
      even there your hand will guide me,
      your right hand will hold me fast.
      If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
      and the light become night around me,”
      even the darkness will not be dark to you;
      the night will shine like the day,
      for darkness is as light to you.”
      (Psalm 139:7-12)

    • Beau says:

      There will be NO hiding…Amen

    • exactly. people can hide from one another, but not from God. seems to me the whole idea of all this is that God is trying to get out attention. He tells to trust in Him, daily. That’s alot easier said than done. But if you do it, then He makes sure that ‘all things work for good to those that love Him”

      • Rhonda says:

        That’s true. We are taught not to be cowardly and those that endure to the end will be rewarded.

    • DelaYah says:

      These are they who loved not their life unto death. These are they who endured unto the end, who were saved. These are they which have washed their robes white in the blood of the Lamb. These are they which keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yahshua Messiah. The testimony of Yahshua is the Spirit of prophecy.

  2. MAD says:

    Use the money to help the world today, and stop helping your self,

  3. Sam Beckett says:

    Should I be fortunate enough to win the lottery, I will either move out of CA, buy a $2 million condo from this place & live very near it so when the disasters do happen, I will be a hop, skip, & a jump away. If not that, then I will move elsewhere & build a house in a remote place & have a large state of the art underground bunker/condo with all the bells & whistles.

    • wibbys1 says:

      I am an advocate of prep and survival training. I store a little food and water but always keep in mind that the Judge of all mankind has the final say. Remember folks, there is the “end of the world” predicted in scripture but there are also numerous events that may come our way along the path of life. The Bible also says only the fool ignores the signs

      • DelaYah says:

        When it speaks about the end of the world, it’s speaking of the end of the “age”. The end of the age will usher in the reign of Yahshua Messiah for 1,000 years, here on earth. It’s referred to many times as the Kingdom of heaven. This is what the believers are waiting for. After the kingdom of heaven, is the New Jerusalem which is not yet fully understood as to what will be in store for those who love the Creator of all things. “Visiting the inquity (torah-less-ness) of the fathers unto the 3rd and 4th generation of them that hate me (love less) and showing MERCY unto THOUSANDS of them that “love me and keep my commandments”.
        Blessed is Yahshua Messiah, The HOLY ONE of Y’srael.

      • prayntongues says:

        DelaYah: you are partially right. The Earth and the wicked will be destroyed by fire. This will be the end of the world as we know it. A brand new Earth will be inhabited by all the believers, ruled under one king…Yeshua!! God is not going to leave us with this toxic destroyed earth. We are getting everything brand new and more beautiful! AMEN!!

    • Some Girl says:

      Sounds good to me…

  4. Irene C says:

    I watched a show on the History Channel a couple of years ago that showed this concept. Sad. I agree wibbys1, there is no hiding from judgement.

  5. John K says:

    When God says that the elements will melt with fervent heat, He is not joking, we should have no fear of death if we are right with the Lord. What are these lunatics thinking? If, and that is a BIG IF, they survive the brightness of the Lords coming, we are plainly told in scripture that there will be no sun or moon to give light, so after their 5 years!!!! What then?

  6. Marybell says:

    I don’t understand how these rich people will get to their underground home in the event of a catastrophe. Lots of other questions, too. What if you die down there? What about enough water? Does any of the buyers not believe in G-D? You cannot hide from HIM. This makes no sense to me. The believers in Jesus will be settled into their heavenly mansions while the people will be hunkered underground waiting. And for What?

  7. hilly7 says:

    Lots of good comments here I agree with. One thing about underground bunkers though. They can be a safe haven or a tomb no matter end of the world scenario or not.

  8. freedomforme says:

    Watch the movie, “Take Shelter.” Destruction will likely come when it is least expected!

  9. Lee H says:

    Having read Robert R. McCammon’s horror novel Swan Song, nothing on earth would persuade to enter one of these “safe-houses”. Especially during a full scale nuclear exchange.

  10. Supreme Siddha says:

    I think being underground is the worst thing to do, because the earth is shifting, and what if you get trapped there LOL, or what if all this is all a setup.

    • w says:

      That is my conclusion. If an earthquake happens and the actual earth shifts, the ground around these underground bunkers is going to move and it will move against the walls, bending hinges and doors, collapsing walls. The pounds of weight that shift are far too great to expect to survive in an underground bunker. A number of other scenarios make these a jail cell. You could be trapped inside if there is only 1 person standing at the entrance with a weapon.

  11. Herkimer Diamond says:

    I would hate to be in there if lava was flowing around it, I think it would be like living in a pressure cooker. I also think it would crush like a beer can if we had another ice age with five miles of ice on top grinding away at it.

  12. Faith says:

    Sometimes the safest place to be is inside the oven.

  13. Herkimer Diamond says:

    If I had the money to build one of these survival habitats, I would build it on the moon!

  14. Oggie says:

    “Then the kings of the earth, the very important people, the generals, the rich, the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who is seated on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to withstand it?” – Revelations 6:16-17

    I think it’s a deception/illusion/lie of the enemy that we can escape and hide from what’s coming. I browse end-time sites that capitalize on people’s fears and sell them the idea of “salvation” from physical harm and I shake my head. There was even one ad with a blurb that said, “Earn from the end-times”. Tsk, tsk.

  15. Ali says:

    It saves their graves being dug for them I suppose!

  16. Helen Parks says:

    I was curious when watching the show:
    how do they circulate good air in and bad air out?
    ‘it cant be solar powered and it cant be fuel (where would one get it later?)
    There can be very little allowed to protrude outside the ground level if the winds are going to be 1000 mph (or even kph) or if the solar heat is going to be like a real furnace…
    and the pump/s to do the circulating of both air and grey water – are there back up pumps?
    Can the grey water be recycled and do they have a water purification unit – is it HHo powered?
    Plus a large number of logistical questions, such as how often would one be allowed to shower and how is the washing dried etc

    • niebo says:

      Hey, Helen, I know that in WWII, the German bunkers had elaborate circulation systems that created “positive” air-pressure, so that the structures’ internal air was expelled through numerous camouflaged vents (made to look like rocks, shrubs, etc.). This system used enormous intake ports, efficient filtration, high-speed fans, and elaborate ducting to maintain air-pressure 3 to 5 pounds higher than ambient air pressure, which, in effect, rendered the structures impregnable to chemical attack, per Hitler’s orders. (Because he was burned by mustard gas in WWI, his army used chemical weapons only in the camps, not on the battlefield.) Anyway, I was intrigued so I went looking, and:

      “1.21.Outside air entering the launch duct area is filtered by an electrical motor-driven roll-type filter located on level 3 of the launch silo between the intake blast valve and the air conditioning unit. A new filter media is automatically provided as needed; however, periodic changing of the roll is necessary.”

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Dwarner30uk/T.O._21M-LGM25C-1

      While the actual Air Condition section does not address filtration…without it, in the event of a nuclear attack, the site would be contaminated and everyone, killed. Also, bear in mind that you ask questions the answers for which may be classified, so your discovery of information may lead to your physical disapearance….

  17. molassis says:

    Well, one this is for sure, their location is not secret… if you want a sure fire way to be robbed, then advertise your wealth and give an address… they may be super, ultra rich… but not so smart, lol. I think the SMART prepper is the one who does it SECRETLY!

  18. marcelle says:

    Ok so if these people have so much money, they must work ?? Too bad if they were at work and the shtf, paid all this money and woops!!!!……………didn’t make it to the shelter. Maybe a hot air balloon??? lol

  19. m c says:

    On the one hand it would afford protection against man near the end when things get really crazy so that might be worth it but GOD knows where everyone is at and will take them in his time.

    I dont really think these people are trying to hide from GOD (maybe some) I just think they want a safe place to go “just in case”

    If I had the extra cash I’d probably have a bunker built at my home but how do you plan for every possible event…..you cant so most likely it will be a waste.

    If its a pandemic and you go to one of those bunkers and someone brings in the “bug” its all over.

    I wonder if the people selling these are the children of the people that sold bomb shelters in the 50′s?

  20. mary says:

    I wonder who is going to be in charge? Who is this guy? who will you be living with? Are these people going from one tyrant to another?Who is making the rules in this place? Can’t say I would want to be there. And like the person said earlier now the whole world knows where to go to find you..

  21. MC hammers says:

    @ Oggie – that’s the relevant quote, IMHO. some of these elites may be in the end be tunneling their way to hell.

  22. Tina says:

    There is also a place in California that is building underground shelters…not sure the “bright” light that came up with that..but they have requirements other than money…they will pick who gets to purchase as spot..and they prefer you to be young, so that you can “populate” the world…hmm, already 2 strikes against this thought process.

  23. sKeptical citizen says:

    the was a small group that lived in a sealed bio dome. it was self sustaining ect. they all developed some kind of brain damage that messed up their motor functions.these folks buying the silo condos simply have more money than brains. The physical body is just temporary. take care of your soul and everything else is trivial.

  24. Tina Marie says:

    I was wondering the same thing Mary commented on, about exactly who would be running the show underground if a disaster did strike and they had to stay down there for any length of time. They would have to create a make-shift Government of some sort and even possibly need people to enforce the rules such as a police force. Rich people commit crimes too and you know they would all be down there trying to scheme and manipulate their way to the leadership positions, just like they do above ground. As I am writing this, I’m thinking it may be the best idea these rich morons ever came up with. Bury them all and if anything is left above ground to rebuild, we might actually be able to get something done right without a bunch of politically motivated BS always screwing it up!

  25. Tim says:

    I guess I don’t understand some of your comments , nowhere in the story does it say these folks are trying to hide from god . It sounds to me like they have done well in life in life and are looking out for their future survival . You do know that your leaders of this country and other country’s are doing the exact thing . They are building huge under ground city’s for survival . Now keep in mind they are not for the poor average joe like you and me and this does not make me want to bash them for it . It just makes me prepare a little more for my family . Not every bad event in the world is going to be the end of the life as we know it . I don’t understand why you would look down on these folks for doing this almost like they are doing something wrong . Cheer up people the sun will rise in the east tomorrow , the birds will sing , and there will be people on earth and in heaven that will have a smile on there face . Climb out of the doom and gloom crater and look around gods beautiful earth is still here and it will be for a long time to come ( god willing ) !!!!

  26. df says:

    I have a feeling it’s people who did not build these bunkers that will get to use them. When disaster suddenly strikes, even the best laid plans fall apart.

  27. Anne says:

    One thing they’ve forgotten – EARTHQUAKES! When plates move underground, nothing can survive.

  28. Ade says:

    I bought one and in fact it makes feel secure.
    No, just kidding.

  29. Dennis E. says:

    How about that! Who would think people who would want to steer clear of prison would actually build one for themselves, and underground! Now this is the best form of house arrest I’ve ever seen!
    Waste of money, for sure. I agree with previous comments……

  30. Joseph t. Repas says:

    Yes, I agree with MAD and many others. If we save our bodies and starve our souls we are already dead. Like the Hopi indian prophecy states too that those who survive will be those who remember the old ways given to them in the beginning. You may want to look up Hopi prophecy as it has much to say about what the world is now[ as prophesised ] and does not give a date of occurence. Another prophecy that is very intriguing would be the prophecy of A.A.Allen from 1954..and of course we have many references in the Bible…p.s. with my luck, I would buy a half floor bunker and my next room neighbor would be blasting RAP music 24/7….AGGHHHH! lol

  31. Be_Wise_As_Serpents says:

    I saw this guy on “Doomsday Preppers.” They had some rich lady coming in to look at a place and he was showing her around the “community.” She was adamant that he assure her that she would not even know or care what was going on outside… She just wanted to be safe.

    I have to tell you… the LAST people I would want to endure a catastrophic, extinction level event with is ANYONE who has purchased a spot in that development.

  32. SoSoSon says:

    I think history repeats itself. Earth is alive and she is shaking off the dust. I believe there will always be life on earth.

  33. green says:

    who wants to survive if were not supposed to,,and then what live in a world like mad max or book of eli…

    • hilly7 says:

      I can’t imagine living without my family and friends. I’m in the thought that this lady is not living if she is that worried about dying. We all come dependent, scared, and naked and we leave that way if we live long enough. The first and most important prep should be spiritual, then you probably won’t need a hole in the ground except for your body.

  34. Irene C says:

    I was just thinking – “if” the extinction level event never happens, do these people get a refund? Guess I should be happy I didn’t put any money down on a condo there. I’m claustophobic, and I’m presuming there are no windows. And I definitely wouldn’t want to spend my time with a bunch of spoiled, rich people. Do these people realize that they would actually have to work? And work together? Sorry, but there is a part of this that I find humorous.

    • Well, if you poured a $250,000 dollar down payment down into a hole in the ground and couldn’t come up with the rest to make the purchase…wouldn’t that, in and of itself, be considered the end of the world for most people?

      The reality is, people are scared and they don’t have any answers to what’s coming and can’t get any.

  35. Helen Parks says:

    End product will assuredly be:
    Whoever we are, where ever we are at the bad moment…
    That is Where We are Meant To Be at That Moment

  36. Colleen says:

    If it is your time to die, God can find you under a rock or on top of a mountain. There is no hiding from God. (No pun intended.)

  37. Herkimer Diamond says:

    I wonder if they thought of the maintenance aspect of such a project and who would do the repairs to the heating, plumbing, electrical, and structural? I find most of the rich can not even clip their own toe nails because most of their lives they have every thing done for them by maids and servants. Will this structure have a medical clinic or will the sick just be ground into green soyant and fed to the rest of the tenants? How will they over come the damaging effects of artificial lighting long term on bone and skin health?

  38. Debbie says:

    I can understand the thoughts expressed here, but I don’t think we should judge how people are trying to prepare for the worst. I believe in God and I know that His will be done, but I have three children and the thought of not being able to protect them from catastrophe is very scary to me. We are to trust in the Lord but I would also like to think that God helps those who help themselves and maybe to these rich people, buying into these elaborate condos is their way of doing just that. I would love to be able to have some type of shelter, stocked with everything imaginable and able to withstand nuclear war….but I just can’t. So I will be happy for those who CAN prepare, and pray like crazy that if and when the time comes, God will ‘show’ me what to do.

  39. Cj Randolph says:

    “The Lord is my buckler”…and my refuge.
    Psalm 31:2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.

  40. Marta says:

    Debbie,
    You CAN prepare!
    A few years ago i felt the Lord calling me to be a prepper (not a survivalist). Some of us, i believe have been called to be ready so that we can feed our neighbors in need and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ when chaos hits. But, in the natural there is never enough preparation. So, what the Lord has taught me is that we do what we can in the natural but prepare spiritually .. 1. know that you are saved by the blood shed on the cross. 2. develop a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit that you know His voice. The voice that will protect and guide you through all tribulation. 3. Pray by the power of the blood for the salvation of everyone in your family and surrender them to the Father and Creator of all things (He can certainly take care of them). 3. Walk in the light of His Word and His purpose for that day! We are not promised a tomorrow.
    I know that this is really hard to do but we need to keep our eyes on HIM!

    Lord bless you and keep you close!
