The State of Preparedness
by JoAnn Glasco

There is a call before the fall, for saints to come into a spiritual attitude of preparedness. Many are walking in the foretold prophesy, "As in the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of Man". Even though they hear and see the signs of the coming of the Son of God, they go on living as they have always done. Now we are experiencing a moment of mercy and grace, a reprieve, so to speak. Time has been given in order to get our houses in order. We need a little more time to learn to walk and learn to live in that state of preparedness for what God is about to do upon the earth. The following prophetic rhyme is a message to the laborers of the harvest:

A great word will be coming forth
One that will be so profound
One that will astound (my sheep)
Who still bleat and sleep
While the sounds of My coming can be heard
The blasts and the thunder make loud rumblings.

And still, most who know want to procrastinate
I would say get ready now for the church apostate
Get ready now for the sudden collapse
It isn't far off - Can't you hear the thunder clap?
The lightning strikes, the winds blow
While the flooding rivers are out of control!
Can't you hear the roar of the thundering four?
One by one, they bring the apocalypse mentioned in the days of yore.

My watchman do proclaim
The prophesies of Ezekiel, Daniel, and Jeremiah fame
Listen with your spiritual ears
As the clock ticks off the minutes that some thing will be years.
Hearken to the wonders and signs
While my prophets release my sayings in various communication lines.

Circumstances are coming about
Where man cannot live without
A belief and relationship with Jehovah God
Only through Him can man escape the coming devastations
that move across the land like lightning rods.

There is a cry across the land for peace and safety
These words are called upon by demand
There will be none of this
As it is ordered and proclaimed by man.

Peace and safety for nations
Teetering on the brink of tribulation?
All peace will be found in Me
And now I will be the one who gives man his liberty.
Safety can only be on by those who worship the Son.

Make haste - there will be no time to waste.
Do not look to the left nor to the right
As I lead you away from dangers;
Hearken to My voice as I prepare your way for flight
As terrorism and gangs stalk the cities,
A way will be made for you to flee in the night.

There will be a way made for safety in the days ahead.
Those walking in righteousness will reap the price of a life devout
By the Spirit of God, they will be shown the way out.

The Lord would say, Come this way
And I will deliver you from cataclysmic dangers this day
Step not there - Get out of harm's way
Avoid that entrapment
Covenant people will travel by night
As I lead them away from cities where there will be a great flight.

There will be explosions that light up the sky
Do not be afraid, I am always close by.
No air flights or motor trips should be taken
Without much prayer and mediation
As you see such terroristic demonstrations
Know that you arrived at the beginning of the book Revelation

Scriptures: Matthew 13:14-15; Matthew 24:37; 2 Peter 3:3-4; Revelation 2:17

Y2K Preparedness

The Scriptures tell us God told Noah to prepare an ark to preserve God's people alive: Genesis 6:13-14 and I Peter 3:20. The Scriptures also say: "But as the days of Noe were, so also shall the coming of the son of man be." Matthew 24:37 and Luke 17:26

Noah is our example today upon whom the ends of the world are come. We have a great responsibility as pastors, leaders, and concerned brothers and sisters to prepare God's people for the coming world chaos. Noah took everything on the ark to sustain his family alive during the raging storm. What are those things we need to prepare for the devastating times ahead for God's people?

The following list is by no means complete. It is a starting point in changing your mind from the way of life we now have, to prepare for a time when electricity and this way of life will no longer exist. Now is the time to prepare as Joseph in the Old Testament. Many probably thought Joseph crazy for preparing for lean years when there was such abundance in the land. Indeed today the world is living in the most abundant times in history. But watchmen, it is our responsibility, as Joseph, to hear from the Lord and begin to prepare for God's people for the days ahead.

God's people need to be prepared Spiritually. Many in the body of Christ today are being lulled to sleep, seeing no need to prepare for God's judgment. As God's voice in the earth today, we must warn God's people, for if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle, I Corinthians 14:8? Whether they hear or whether they forbear, we have a great responsibility to warn God's people, Ezekiel 3:11. We encourage you to give the body of Christ hope. This message is not one of fear but of rejoicing, knowing our God will protect us through anything that may come upon the earth. This is one of the greatest times in history to witness for the Lord and bring our friends, family, and loved ones the message of true repentance. Many prophets and kings have desired to see this day. God's Word tell us in II Peter 3:11-12: "Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hastening unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Look up! For thy redemption draweth nigh.
