The time is now to prepare for The Great Tribulation. True Christians are told in scripture to watch. Watch World events and be preoared for the worse. God tells those who are in Judea to flee to the Mountaines when these events begin. But what about those who do not live in that aera.
God gives us knowledge and if we continue to do nothing then we have not followed His instructions. Can God protect in in our Homes? Yes He can but I don't believe He will unless one is in an area that may be hard found. God gave us enough knowledge to prepare with stocking up on food because of the coming food shortage. But some want take the warning serious until it is to late. And it could be getting to late.
