29 Responses to New reality show highlights preppers preparing for doomsday

    I visited the preppers’ site some times & its not the only cause that makes me being overwhelmed with thoughts of what’s going to happen during such a situation. I mean, I also have been thinking about such a global event that’d endanger the future of humankind..
    A big question that raises in my thoughts during this thinking, is what’s going to happen when Law is going to be diminished or stop existing while such a situation..
    In a small period of time, gangs are going to be formed around the Country (each Country, not only the States), which will attack unprotected people organized like the preppers, or people not in that scheme, but anyways, organized, in order to confront such a potential like the one the preppers are preparing themselves for.. Of course the purpose of the attacks will be, to take the organized people’s supplies mainly.
    Law is going to be there, but not able to compensate.. Criminals are performing out there in an unacceptable level even nowadays, so just think what will the police be able to do in such a situation of escalating to the total destruction & disorganization of a Country.. So, when incidents & fights between people defending their premises & these gang organized criminals take place, who’s gonna tell who’s right & who’s wrong? Who’s gonna defend the people who’d defended their premises & their supplies if arrested by the remains of the police?

      We are in this world, but we are not of this world. Have peace and let the end of time unfold. There is nothing one can do except elaborating fantasies of the worst scenarios. I have done that for years and now I sit back and watch the show! Take care…

      Yes …indeed what you are describing could happen.My best guess is our wits will be tested.. moral quandrys will abound.Your question of what to do when there is no law..the best you can.For me ..the best I can is..making peace with my Lord and set about gathering what my family may need. If you can… leave a highly populated city..if not love your neighbor and help each other.If you are prepping keep it to yourself..If things devolve we will all just have to do the best we can.

    Well..it’s a start.We are really a couple of generations past what our grandparents on back did for getting thru tough times.I’m sure it would be hard for my grandmother to imagine what is going on now and the speed at which events are happening but her generation did understand that indeed life can turn on a dime in any direction.

    I was watching the 700 club awhile back and the host remarked how foolish he thought it was for people to stockpile food and supplies.His take was if something is going to happen so be it,there is nothing you can do abot it.To me this flies in the face of everything I was taught growing up.

    My grand mother was in her late 20’s during the depression and had a young child so some important life habits came out of that experience.She was a good steward of money and became very savvy in making a dollar stretch and work for her.She was a saver and a generous giver of good causes.If there was a storm and lights out she had the candles and the flashlights.Always extra food in freezers and a garden.She had strong bonds with neighbors and community.She could also shoot and fish clean and cook game.Her home was outfitted with a place to go in the event of a tornado(west Texas)and it was lovely.We used to say she had so much style ..she made Martha Stewart look tacky.She was 5ft tall and not afraid of anything and loved the Lord.

    You could say that those of that era and up to that time possessed all the qualities of a good prepper.You can bet if infrastructure failed she would have had on hand items needed to get thru and the knowledge to keep going.

    So ,when people scoff at those of us who suggest that being prepared for a rainy day …while it is now raining…..is prudent…just remind them this is what people have always done up until this last gereation or 2.

    This point is what I wish these shows would hghlight more as to not make this to be a fringe lifestyle where folks are portrayed as trigger happy or unhinged.The status of the world can turn on a dime ..a good meal a warm blanket and a calm mind can get you thru alot.God bless,R

      There is no problem with being a prepper and storing up essentials as you have the money,time and space it can also save you some money in the long run, as prices usually go up. However you can only store up so much stuff, maybe enough for a couple of months. This would get you through certain natural or man made disasters. Your mom had the right idea in giving and helping others. So she stored basic items on earth for certain disasters and stored up Treasures in Heaven. I am sure this is what God would want us all to do. Sounds like a prepper.
      God bless

      Radiogirl, great post & your Grandmother sounds an amazing lady. Lucky you to have been influenced in such a positive, intelligent & loving way. I got lucky with my Grandma’s also – one survived the seige of St. Petersburg, the other the bombing of Darwin. I am a prepper, have been for years but seriously for over three. My partner & a few likeminded & close friends have enough food & supplies to sustain us for over three years if needed. We do not advertize this fact for security reasons but we are prepared as well as can be if the need to should arise. If preparing for catastrophe & calamity makes us unhinged, so be it 🙂

    None of them are prepared for a Noah’s flood – something which happens more often than taught in school
    Nor are they prepared for the ice age which follows…
    this one is due to the Earth being moved off her orbit
    And those so called “elites” that are headed under ground – are they ready for the tectonic plate developments?
    And those that “bought” their way onto space stations?
    They will have to remember to live in their radiation suits – at all times

    I am a prepper! I believe it is simple common sense. I continue to work and I am not hiding under a rock but for several years we have known that the world was in a difficult place and it is just a matter of time before something happens. I am a believer of Jesus Christ and am not afraid of what is to come (it is actually very exciting to know that these events only mean that we are closer to 1000 years of perfect justice and peace). Hercules when these events (whatever it is .. we have so many threats) happen we cannot rely on the government or the police to help us. But, the Lord says He will cover us with His wings, and He will protect His children. So we are doing what we can to have food, provisions, ammunition (to hunt) and the rest we leave it to the Lord. If we run out of food He will feed us mana, He will hide us from the enemy, He will keep us healthy … and then He will take us up into the clouds.
    People Prepare!!!
    1. Set your heart right with God thru his son Jesus .. (ask Him to show himself to you!)
    2. Love your families and tell them about Jesus
    3. Learn to listen to the Holy Spirit of God (He will guide you thru these difficult days)
    4. And then, if the Lord leads you prepare so that you can feed others when they are hungry and share the Good news of the Gospel (that is why we prepare!!)

    Blessings and Mercy,

    Radiogirl, thanks for sharing that real story. Thinking back to very cold winters in the 1960’s in Europe we all had a cellar with lots of food in it. I’ve never heard my mother sayt ” oh, run to the shop because i’m out of salt or sugar”. Like you, i am worried about the latest generations who’s perception of life is so limited: living from week to week, no worries or thoughts about next year etc. I share my thoughts about world changing events with as many people as possible however they don’t want to know or think i’m a bit crazy, a small percentage is starting to prepare and “seeing the light”.
    My experiences with large earthquakes for one has tought me to be prepared, so yes i’m a prepper too which gives me a little piece of mind. Keep safe

    No matter where you run or hide, you can’t hide from the father. If you think hiding in the ground will save you, you will be barried alive and never found. If you hide in space, you will become fireworks for those suffering on earth, to watch in wonder.
    The only way to be saved is to turn to Jesus christ and to make your light shine, for the less light, the father will see, the more the damage will be done to the earth until all that remains is just those of the light. So if you don’t turn to Jesus to repent your sins, then yes by all means prepare for the end, but know that you wast you time, for those with no light will go right to the pit of fire. Soon the lord will sake the world and that my dear brothers and sisters is the sign of the start, for what you see now are just the signs of the Paraclete/Spirit’s presents on earth, it is the paraclete/spirit that will bring the start of the real coming.
    God Bless All

    I have made an extensive study of the coming events and have concluded that whatever happens will be so gradual that most people will not even notice it. There will be no stock market crash or US dollar crash. Instead it will be a progressive slide towards the END. Food will not be missing any time soon.
    My forecast is for the year 2036 when the US dollar will die, but die it will, make no mistake about it! The social security trust fund will be exhausted that same year. Asteroid Apophis #99942 may hit us as well.

      Extinction events are by their very nature- unexpected events. Humans have never been further or more alienated from nature than they are now; so most have no clue what’s transpiring or is about to transpire. If the world makes it to 2014 given the gravity of events gathering on the horizon- it will be a miracle. From there, it only gets worse: more people, more weapons, more need for energy, more nuclear power plants, more oil and more trauma in the Middle East to get it or defend it, greater marches from more freedom, greater ethnic tension, more ethnic and religious claustrophobia from a planet already suffering from population shock and wealth isolation and too unaware to know it.

        Human body discarded at trash dump in Iraq

        This is the 21st century, not the Age of Barbarism, yet looking across the Earth, one has to wonder if there is not a serious regress. Human life is devalued by those using violence, terror, and war to maintain their hold on power. Their brutal, desperate grip for the crumbling scepter of the old world order and the violence dispensed to reside over a throne sitting on smouldering ruins is enough to make us shudder. What greater horrors are yet to unfold on this planet should be the question at the forefront of our minds in this transition to the New World Order? Civilization teeters on a precipice awaiting a gentle push. Given humanity’s predilection of greed and lust for blood- there’s no guarantee man will ever be turned from his untoward course of self-destruction in time to spare this planet from a nightmare; especially now with resources being hoarded and avarice becoming paramount.

    I watched a show, either wife swap or trading spouses where they featured a family preparing for the end of the world. The children were made to carry “survival packs” to school and forced to come home every day right after school so the family could always be together “just in case”. It was over the top and seemed to keep the whole family on alert 24/7 and cause much distress for the kids. My 10 yr old daughter is worried and talks to me about her fears. I think it is prudent to be prepared but when it takes over your entire life, it becomes a burden that may or may not be worthy of worry. I don’t want my children so scared or discouraged that they give up on having a bright future. I also read a few yrs ago that stockpiling more than 3 months worth of food is against federal law. I don’t know if that’s true or not but it makes me wonder if these people on the reality show will be targeted and possibly get in trouble for what they’re doing. My biggest concern however would be, what if something does happen and now everyone who has watched the show knows where to find the ones with all the food stored up. It seems they would be foolish to disclose their locations because once people get hungry and scared enough, they won’t be safe with their hoard any longer. I pray this is all a mute point but I also know it’s only a matter of time before something comes along and proves our worst fears were real. God Bless you Alvin for this site and for keeping us informed and all the people who follow it daily like I do. At least we are able to learn and discuss these things as they unfold. Too many people are completely asleep at the wheel and will regret it when the day comes and they haven’t made peace with the creator.

    As a prepper I am worried about those on that special. When the S does hit the fan they will be a well known stockpile. The shipping container compound will be under siege (bullet proof walls?),
    the pacifist survivalist will be growing food for people with guns, and those using morse code for communications will be targeting themselves for anyone illegally inside their home.

    I am not a prepper. I was going to to do a few things but felt in my spirit God didn’t want me to do it. And people will be so hungry and desperate I would either be killed or have to lock myself away which I don’t want to do because I would want to share but even now I see people who need food, housing, etc. and one of my family members works with them. Even now people can do some drastic and dangerous things in order to feed themselves or children. When the world gets worse than it just a scary scenario I do not like to imagine. I have faith in God, not man and though I love and pray for them I still am wary of most because you never know when the knife is thrown at your back. Praying always. God bless.

    DHS Implementing No Work List: Citizens Must Get Government Approval to Work in Private Sector Jobs

    The TWIC application also mentions “treason” and “sedition” as a criteria to put an end to an individual’s employment.
    Sedition is defined as overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by officialdom to tend toward insurrection against the establishment. The Sedition Act of 1918 forbids the use of “disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language” about the United States government, its flag, or its armed forces. The Sedition Act was updated on October 26, 2001, when Congress signed the USA Patriot Act into law.
