God know all too well what's going on.
Just out of curiosity I asked this question on another forum and got no response. Would it belittle my Trust in God and negate my belief in a pretrib rapture if I were to build a bomb/fallout shelter?

Chickens - food
Large tank to store water(drought), an M1 Abrams will work nice

“Oh Look,... an Atheist........I Don't believe it....”
Am I a fool for preparing for battle or survival and that of my family? Or am I a fool for preparing period, because God will just hand everything to me? Or am I blessed to be able to prepare for the worst in case someone else didn't?
Too many variables. Of course His grace is all that we need, but making preparations is far from being alarmist and is not anti-biblical... I'm more a moderate preparer for the unexpected- tools, shelter, implements, etc. I don't have food- I can secure my own.
God knows all, the end from the beginning- but we don't.
Maybe a small distillery to make fuel grade ethanol
Some large copper or stainless steel containers
a bin to store a few hundred bushels of corn
Alternative heat sources Wood, coal, etc.
If left behind I could drink myself to death in a hurry with 190 proof.
why are we spending all of this money on survival items?
i mean, like someone else mentioned earlier, are we planning on being left behind?
seriously... why not take the $2k and stick it in a saving account, or a CD... or something useful?
