I have never been one to be anxious about preparing for disasters, as there has been too much speculation and fruitless doomsday preparation over the decades. I also know the Lord will guide me as needed to keep my family and I safe, so I simply depend on the Lord to warn me of anything I need to heed.

In recent months the Lord has been guiding and warning more about the troubling times we’re in (see God’s Alarm for more) and I know things will continue to worsen. I’ve also been feeling the Lord wants me to give notice of some things, so this document will share what I’ve been called to share and will list locations that I’ve gotten guidance about or have strong spiritual feelings to avoid or leave. I will also update the information here as I get more guidance to do so.

The strong feelings I get related to these things are like what I felt with other spiritual guidance, such as when the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020, I felt the infection would subside but come back much worse, which it did, and when Donald Trump was elected president, I strongly felt he was an unrighteous leader and could not be trusted (see The People's Loss Of Discernment, God's Alarm, and God's Proof For Sin in 383 for more), which proved to be true, especially as his term neared end and he tried to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election results.

Prep Notices
  • Upper Midwest and Areas Around Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota - About a month ago, I got strong feelings to prepare for utilities, like electricity and heat, to be cut off for extended periods of time (about a week or two). I believe this will happen because of severe storms, like has been seen in many other parts of the United States in recent years.

    I felt I needed to get alternate power sources and methods to cook and heat the house that will last for 10 to 14 days. I don’t feel that stocking a lot of food and water are necessary at this time, but only to prepare for utilities to be unavailable.

    I already had a mid-size battery (standard automotive/deep cycle battery) with a power inverter that I used for camping and emergency power, but even a large battery will not run heating or cooking appliances very long. Just one of those kinds of appliances require high wattage in the range of 600 to 1200 watts, which will drain batteries very fast.

    The battery back-up is fine for low wattage use, such as to charge small electronics, like phones and laptops. I’ve used a standard car battery for those purposes and it will usually last about 2 days. Also note that most automotive, even many deep cycle batteries, can be permanently damaged if they are discharged (run down) past 50% full, so using a power inverter that tells you how much charge the battery has will help you know when to recharge it.

    For longer-term power back-up, I opted to get a 10,000 watt dual-fuel generator (runs on either gasoline or propane) that could power the house, so that heat and kitchen appliances could run. That is enough wattage to run a lot of minor appliances, plus one or two high watt appliances, like a range or microwave, at the same time.

    I also got solar panels to recharge the batteries I have and large kerosene containers to fuel a kerosene heater I already had, though, I likely won’t need these extra things because of the generator. They can provide additional back-up if I run out of fuel for the generator.

    Also note, if you will run a gas generator, always treat your gasoline with stabilizer. Otherwise, the fuel will deteriorate, absorb water, and become syrupy (turn into lacquer that will foul your engines) after a month or more. Depending on the fuel stabilizer you use, it will preserve your fuel for a year or two. I’ve preferred to use Sea Foam stabilizer for decades since my motorcycling days, because it kept my engines in running condition through winter storage when other brands did not.

    Stabilizer shouldn’t be needed for kerosene as it can last a decade by itself in an approved kerosene container.

Update - Hurricane Ian 10/1/2022 9:29 PM
Tonight, I saw on NBC televised nightly news that the death toll from Hurricane Ian was at least 77 dead now. This reminded me of two-sevens and the time when the Lord moved me to point out that many disasters are truly His judgment, because seven is a number that refers to God, divinity, and completeness.

For many believers, hurricanes like Ian are obviously judgment from God, because shouldn't a People that know the Lord recall that He is the One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating disaster. [He says,] I am Yehovah who does all these things (Isaiah 45:7; also Deuteronomy 32:39; 1 Samuel 2:5-7; Lamentations 3:38; Job 12:23; Jeremiah 31:28; Ecclesiastes 7:14; 2 Chronicles 25:8; Proverbs 22:2). But so much false teaching and lies are widespread that many believers today still only blame Satan or natural accidents for horrible events.

A few days ago on Wednesday, October 28th, Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida as a very strong Category 4 hurricane, and as I saw its trajectory during the last days, I noted how its path of destruction stayed almost exactly within the area I described in the Location Notices above for Florida - the southern half of Florida marked by (and including) Orlando.

This hurricane was reported to be the most destructive for Florida in over a half-century, but as I watched the news reports of much loss and flooding, I couldn't help feel that Hurricane Ian's destruction would not be the worse of what is coming.

God's hand is in this. The prudent and humble will see His hand is lifted in anger at them and run from the sins that leave them in the path of destruction.

Who can hide from the Lord? But for the righteous ones, the Lord Himself will be their Shield.
