(Besides, no one can determine if you’re righteous or not, not even yourself. Only God can do that, so perhaps you need to take a good look at yourself and find out whether you have become self-righteous or not. If so, then repent and establish a close connection with God…because He loves and adores your.)
You MUST Prepare For A Rainy Day!!!
We’ve all heard it: “It rains on the just and the unjust.”
There is not one person on this earth who hasn’t gotten rained on or who hasn’t gone through some hard times.
“But what if it doesn’t rain? I don’t want to waste my money,” you may be thinking?
As Dave Ramsey likes to put it, “It’s gonna rain, so save up.”
There are 2 types of rainy day savings I’d like to talk about today: (1) stockpiling food and (2) saving up 3-6 months worth of finances. But first I’d like to explain to you why it is so much more crucial to save up today than ever before in the history of America.
The threat of hyperinflation and an EMP
1 – Hyperinflation
If you don’t know what hyperinflation is, then read up about it because it always happens during an economic collapse. Many things that happen to a society that lead up to hyperinflation are a slow increase in cost for goods while the people do not make much more money to compensate for the costs. Eventually the costs become much higher than what the people make and so there is a collapse.
Our biggest threat right now is the government’s ability to print money and flooding the market with it. The more money they print, the lower our dollar becomes. Since it is the Word’s currency, if the economy collapses, the world will realize that it is useless and it will come flooding back to us. That’s when hyperinflation will be realized and we will not be able to pay for even 1 loaf of bread.
Also, we must be thinking of the possibility of an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse). My husband is in EOD (explosive ordinance disposal), so he is very well aware of this danger. The way he described it to me is that if someone decided to set off a nuclear bomb a mile above the ground it would wipe out our entire grid and make anything electronic useless. We wouldn’t be able to turn our computers on, use our phones, or drive. We would literally be plunged into Medieval times and since we are so reliant on someone else to bring us our food, we’d be in trouble of starving because the trucks that bring us the food wouldn’t be able to turn on.
With violence rising in the land we need to think ahead and prepare for the future!
Create A Stockpile Of At Least A Year’s Worth Of Food (Preferably 2 years)
These are hard times, and if the economy collapses money won’t mean so much to you if it can’t pay for food. So stock up at least a year’s worth of food, preferably 2 to be safe. You will be so thankful you did if there is a disaster.
The best things to stock up on would be those freeze dried foods you can find at walmart or efoods.com. If you’re a canner, then you’re ahead of the game! If you’re not then get lots of canned goods.
It’s also a good idea to stock up on plenty of water, grains, and beans.
Save Up 3-6 Months Worth Of Finances
This is more for a time in your life in which you lose a job rather than an economic collapse, but people lose their jobs all the time, so this is a great thing to get into the habit of doing.
Figure out what your net income is, multiply it by six, and save that number up. Put it into a money market account so it can rack up some interest and don’t touch it until you need it!
It’s that simple.
Do You have a stockpile and a savings?
