God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)
Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Dangers and emergencies are liable to strike us with no prior warning. Human response at such times is automatic, almost instinctive, and is affected to a great extent by thinking, knowledge and prior experience. There is no point in trying to look for new answers to a concrete danger while it’s threatening you. It is well-known that people who have planned on how to cope with emergencies and know what to do, have been able to act correctly, thereby saving themselves, their family members, and those in their surroundings. Emergencies can be large-scale, threatening many people who are liable to be hurt. By their nature, these are rare. However, there are more common emergencies on a smaller scale, though sometimes grave in their effect on both body and soul: traffic accidents, an electrical short that sparks a fire, a small-scale hazardous materials incident, work accidents, and more.
Mass emergencies put a strain on emergency response personnel, so that these may find it difficult to get to and treat every injured person quickly. People might find that they have to cope on their own and deal with their problems by themselves, sometimes for a considerable period of time.
Even in a smaller-scale emergency, due to the circumstances of the event, those involved may find themselves alone in their distress and having to cope with their problems on their own, at least for a short period of time. In such cases, too, it is important that the individual know how to save him/herself and the people around him/her, and, in particular, be able to carry out those functions that must be done immediately. Not doing those actions right away might cause irreversible damages consistent with the circumstances of the particular event.
It is clear, therefore, that the time to learn, train and prepare is during a period of peace and calm. The assumption that people in a crisis can follow directions they have not prepared for is very much mistaken. This is why it is necessary to set an organized and consistent process of prior planning and preparation into place.
