As we say good bye to 2017 and start to prepare for a new year, I feel compelled to write on the subject of preparing for THE END. By “THE END”, I mean the day that Jesus will return and set all things right again. This will be the end of the world as we know it. This blog will not be primarily eschatological in nature. There are many different understandings of how the end will happen and when. I am not really concerned with this subject. My main focus will be, “How we should live in the time we have left?”
I am calling this blog “The Prepping Pastor.” We have all heard about Doomsday Preppers; those who stockpile weapons and food so that they might survive the impending destruction of the world. I am not that kind of “Prepper.” Oh, I believe the destruction of the world is imminent, but I am not concerned with surviving it because my survival has already been ensured by the death and resurrection of Jesus, my Lord and Savior.
To prepare for the end of the world as a follower of Christ is to honor and glorify God amidst the chaos and to share the Gospel with as many souls as possible so that all people might be prepared to survive the end of time.
Whether you are a member of my church, a friend, a member of my family or a complete stranger, it is my hope that as you read the posts within this website, you will be encouraged and equipped to continue to fight the good fight. I pray that you find within these pages a way to make sense out of a world that has clearly gone wacko. May we be able to discern Godly truth together and use that truth to glorify God and proclaim His Lordship to the world.
