If you happen to own a remote cabin you hope to make an escape to in the event of a widespread disaster, consider this article as evidence that someone else (with bad intentions) just might beat you to it: CBS NEWS: Elusive mountain man occupies, robs Utah cabinsYou might want to consider safe guarding supplies kept in a cabin / second home by building a small “safe” room well in advance. This is a room that is hidden, the same way that perhaps Europeans had hidden rooms for Jews during World War II.
Hiding Your Supplies From Crooks
Or it could simply be a drop site 50 yards from your cabin, dug into the ground, and well concealed. The extreme survivalist may even consider doing this at his primary residence where he lives in Anytown, USA (read more about the philosophy of survivalism here). Why have your supplies stolen by crooks roaming the neighborhoods when you can keep them safely hidden with just a little manual labor and creative thinking? In a disaster, especially in a world growing in violence like today, there’s an additional risk, which is more people are likely more willing to hurt others in the name of survival.
A Dummy Survival Cache
A Dummy Cache is a room in your house that contains some survival supplies, and put together in a way that it looks like all of your supplies. This is for a time such as being robbed by armed thugs, who break into your home at gun point, order you to give them all your food, or else. You plead with them, “please, don’t take our food, we need our food to live”, but then give in to their order (in a way, that is all an act) and you then lead them to your dummy cache, which has some food. A lot of it can be expired food in fact, they may not be smart enough (or care) to check the expiration dates. So, at this point, the thugs take your dummy cache, believing they’ve just cleaned you out, and then they’re on their way.But aren’t most people good people? Surely, most people wouldn’t do something so criminal as to rob a family at gun point for food? Well, I’ve got two words for you, and why you might want to re-think the good qualities of citizens in your community. Those two words are …
Christians believe the world is entering the end times, and they point to the nation of Israel and the Islamic nations sworn to destroy it as evidence that Bible prophecy is taking place. Whether you’re a Christian or not, it’s a valid argument. The prophecies are there in the Bible, and it’s a miracle that the nation of Israel even exists today. At the same time, rampant evil and violence is becoming the norm in many nations; and the Bible warns repeatedly of God bringing “judgment” to the world in the end times for this rampant evil and violence; but first, according to the last book (chapter) of the Bible, the Book of Revelation, God unleashes even more evil as a preliminary judgment going into the Tribulation time period, followed by the rise of the “Anti-Christ”, and then finally destroys all evil at the end of the Tribulation.What does that mean? It means that we can expect a “flood” of evil to strike the world as the world enters the Tribulation. And that means that you may find yourself surrounded by a number of people in your community suddenly “demonized”, and suddenly willing to rape, rob, and murder in order to survive.
Back To That Cabin And Protecting Your Food Supplies…
Ok, so we digressed a bit. But now you understand (if you’re new to SecretsofSurvival.com) why we believe the “last days” or “end times” from the Bible are here, and we’re warning people to be prepared. Prepare your homes in case of disaster. Prepare to be faced with violence. Surely people in Japan, Haiti, the American Mid West states (struck by tornadoes) and other areas that have been hit by growing natural disasters (there are many places in the last few years) regret not having taken the time for disaster preparedness.But don’t just prepare yourself with food and survival supplies, in case of a natural disaster or terrorist attack in your region, but also prepare yourself spiritually.
You prepare yourself spiritually by getting your life right with God, and repenting from your life of sin. The Bible says “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus”. The Apostle Paul promised that faithful believers would escape the wrath of God, and to look forward to the coming of Christ with great hope as “he rescues us from the coming wrath”.You may have a hard time making sense of it though. Revelation has to be revealed to you by God – if that sounds too weird, will it’s a basic Christian tenet to faith. Christians believe that the Bible can only be understood when God reveals it. Until then we are “blind” to the Bible, and it doesn’t make sense.
