VERY TIMELY AND APPROPRIATE WORD AND ADVICE FROM "AFTERMATH BOB" AUTHOR-DON'T TAKE ANYONE FOR GRANTED THAT YOU THINK WILL BE ON YOUR SIDE IN A WORST CASE SITUATION

DEAR STEVE,

WITH TIME GROWING EVER SHORTER, I'M ALWAYS CHECKING MY PREPS AND GOING OVER THINGS IN MY MIND. MAKING PLANS
FOR AS MANY POSSIBILITIES AS I CAN. LATELY, I BELIEVE, THE LORD HAS BEEN PUSHING ME TO CHECK OUT A WEAK SPOT. AND I DON'T LIKE WHAT I SEE. YOU KNOW I'M A VET. AND THE ARMY AT LEAST TEACHES IT'S PEOPLE TO SEE THINGS THE WAY THEY ARE AND NOT HOW WE WANT THEM TO BE. THE FATHER HAD ME TAKE OFF THE ROSE COLORED GLASSES I WAS WEARING AND TAKE A SERIOUS LOOK AT THOSE PEOPLE (MOSTLY FAMILY) THAT I EXPECTED TO BE WITH ME WHEN TSHTF. I SUDDENLY REALIZED THAT WHILE I LOVE MY FAMILY ENOUGH TO STEP IN FRONT OF A BULLET FOR THEM, I SAW THAT WHEN THE TIME COMES ONLY A VERY FEW OUT OF THE SHORT LIST ACTUALLY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO SEE THEM THROUGH. NOT BECAUSE OF A LACK OF TRAINING OR PREPS. NOT BECAUSE OF AN INABILITY TO SEE THAT THINGS ARE GOING BAD. BUT BECAUSE OF A LACK OF FAITH MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

ONE BROTHER, AND HIS FAMILY, ARE PRETRIBBERS. NO MATTER WHAT I SAY TO HIM OR THEM, THEY WON'T LISTEN, THEY WON'T
PICK UP THE BIBLE AND LOOK AT THE VERSES I TRY TO SHOW THEM PROVING THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE HERE DURING THAT TIME. HE SAYS HE DOESN'T WANT ME TO BE SCARED OF WHAT IS COMING, BECAUSE WE WON'T BE HERE. I'M SCARED THAT WHEN HE
FINDS OUT HE'S WRONG HE AND HIS FAMILY ARE SOME OF THOSE THAT WILL BE CAUGHT UP IN THE GREAT FALLING AWAY. THEY
WILL FEEL BETRAYED BY GOD BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL HERE INSTAD OF THERE. THAT MAKES THEM UNRELIABLE AT BEST.

THE OTHER BROTHER (AND HIS FAMILY) IS A CINO. (CHRISTIAN IN NAME ONLY) HE'S A NICE GUY, ABLE TO STAND UP TO JUST ABOUTANYTHING, BUT LACKING IN THE FAITH HE, AND THEY, WILL NEED. I.E. THE LORD HAS TOLD ME TO SIT IN THE CENTER OF THE BULLS EYE AND WAIT FOR HIS INSTRUCTION. THIS I WILL DO. THIS BROTHER IS MORE LIKE THE PRUDENT MAN IN PROVERBS. HE SEE'S
TROUBLE COMING AND HIDES HIMSELF FROM IT. I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT MAN TO MAN, FACE TO FACE KIND OF TROUBLE. HE IS
MORE THAN READY FOR THAT. AT HIS LAST PROMOTION IN KARATE, HE WAS GIVEN THE RANK OF MASTER. AT 68 HE CAN HAVE A
MAN TWICE HIS SIZE AND A THIRD OF HIS AGE ON THE GROUND SLEEPING PEACEFULLY BEFORE THE OTHER GUY EVEN KNOWS HE ISIN TROUBLE. HIS TROUBLE IS BECAUSE OF A LACK OF FAITH HE WON'T BE ABLE TO STAND ON FAITH ALONE AND DO WHAT MUST BE DONE.

MOM IS IN HER MID EIGHTIES. SHE HAS FAITH, BUT SHE IS ALSO IN HER EIGHTIES, NOT IN THE BEST OF HEALTH ALTHOUGH SHE STILLLIVES INDEPENDANTLY EVEN AFTER DAD WENT HOME FOUR YEARS AGO AND AFRAID TO READ THE BOOK OF REVELATION BECAUSE IT WILL GIVE HER NIGHTMARES.

DON'T ASK ME HOW, BUT I RAISED OUR SON TO BE A CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE, YET SOMEHOW IN THE LAST TEN OR THIRTEEN YEARS SINCE HE LEFT HOME HE HAS BECOME QUITE THE LIBERAL. I DON'T THINK HE HAS EVEN LOOKED AT A BIBLE SINCE HE WENT OUT ON HIS OWN.

IN SHORT, THE LORD HAS BEEN MERCIFUL AND HAD ME TAKE OFF THE BLINDERS AND SEE JUST WHO I CAN'T REALLY TRUST. I
SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISED. SCRIPTURE DOES SAY THAT IN THESE TIMES A MANS ENEMIES WILL BE THOSE OF HIS OWN HOUSE. I
HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO SEE THAT WHILE NOT ENEMIES AT FIRST AND MAYBE NOT AT ALL, MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY THAT I WAS
HOPING WOULD BE THERE TO COVER MY BACK WILL BE THE ONES I AM PROTECTING WHILE ON REAR GUARD AS THE LORD TOLD
ME YEARS AGO.

ONCE AGAIN I AM ALONE. THE THING THAT GETS ME IS THAT EVERYONE IS TELLING ME WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO LIVE. BOTH OF MY BROTHERS, MY WIFE, MY SON AND MY MOTHER ARE ALL TELLING ME TO GO GET A CHECK UP AND SEE WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. THE THING IS THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ME EXCEPT I NOW NEED GLASSES TO READ. I TAKE NO PRESCRIPTIONS, THEY DO, AND PEOPLE WHO TELL ME THESE THINGS (EXCEPT THE KARATE MASTER) CAN NOT DO THINGS I AM PHYSICALLY ABLE TO DO, YET SOMEHOW THEY SEEM TO THINK THAT EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE PRESCRIPTIONS AND CAN'T DO WHAT I DO THAT QUALIFIES THEM TO TELL ME HOW TO IMPROVE MY HEALTH AND LIVE LONGER.

EXCUSE ME. THE LORD IS THE ONE WHO SAID HOW LONG I WILL LIVE. THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO TO CHANGE THAT IN THE SLIGHTEST. SO I CAN'T MAKE MY LIFE LONGER. IMPROVE MY HEALTH? HOW? I CAN STILL WORK A MAN HALF MY AGE INTO THE GROUND, TAKE NO DRUGS AND ONLY NEED HELP READING.

I DON'T KNOW IF OTHERS ARE SEEING WHAT I SEE NOW, BUT PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT WHO THEY THINK IS WITH THEM AND SEE THEM FOR WHAT THEY ARE, NOT WHAT WE WANT THEM TO BE.

YOURS IN CHRIST,BOB
