Cities Of Refuge: Why Are People Creating Hundreds Of Places Of Refuge All Over America?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Place Of Refuge - Public DomainAll over the United States, cities of refuge are being created.  Now when I say “cities”, I don’t mean vast areas of land that can hold hundreds of thousands or millions of people.  Rather, I am talking about much smaller places of refuge that can accommodate dozens or hundreds of people.  In a few cases, I know of places of refuge that will be able to take in thousands of people, but that is about as big as they get.  There are individuals all across America that have specifically felt called to build communities where large numbers of people will be able to gather when society totally collapses.  So why is this happening?  Why do so many people feel such an urgency to create cities of refuge that would presumably never be used if we don’t ever see full-blown societal breakdown?

In the headline, I claimed that hundreds of these “cities of refuge” are being created, but the truth is that it could easily be thousands.  I have personally talked to countless numbers of people that are like my wife and I and are planning to be able to take in members of their own extended families when things get really crazy.  But there are others that are taking things to an entirely different level.

I was recently contacted by a man in New York state that plans to convert a hotel and surrounding facilities into a place of refuge that could potentially accommodate hundreds of people for an extended period of time.  I know of a ranch in southern Idaho where the staff has been feverishly preparing to take in thousands of people when society starts completely falling apart.  And I have corresponded with so many others both inside the United States and outside the country that are creating these types of communities.

It has been estimated that there are three million preppers in America today.  But those that are creating these places of refuge are not just “prepping” for themselves.  Instead, they feel called to prepare a place of safety where others will be able to gather when times get really crazy.

Due to the wide reach of my articles, I have had a lot of people involved in these communities reach out to me over time.  Some have graciously let my wife and I know that there is a place for us if needed during a major emergency, and others have wanted for us to become personally involved in what they are doing.  I wish that I could get involved in all of them, but there is a limit to what any one of us can do.  But I always encourage people to keep pressing forward with their preparations, because without a doubt they will be needed someday.

In addition to what is happening inside the United States, there are others that have already left this country and are creating places of refuge abroad.  There are people that are doing this in South America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.

And of course every “place of refuge” looks different.  As I mentioned above, some plan on transforming existing hotels or ranches into places of refuge.  Others plan to use open land to host large numbers of RVs or to construct vast tent cities.

But there are five big things that all places of refuge need to be thinking about…

1. Food – It is going to take vast quantitites of food to even feed dozens of people.  When you are talking about hundreds or thousands of people, the amount of food required for a place of refuge will be off the charts.

2. Water – None of us can live without water, and it has been estimated that the average American uses 80 to 100 gallons of water every single day.  Of course we would all use a lot less during an emergency situation, but if your “place of refuge” does not have easy access to water that could become a major problem very rapidly.

3. Shelter – It is nice to think that you are going to take in a lot of people, but where are all of them going to sleep?  Most people don’t think of mattresses or cots as “survival items”, but the truth is that they are going to be greatly in demand when things get crazy.

4. Power – If the electricity goes off and stays off for an extended period of time, what are you going to do?  How will people stay warm, how will you cook food, and how will your community function without any artificial light whatsoever?  Having an alternative source of power for your place of refuge is very important.

5. Security – If there was a full-blown collapse of society, any place that still has ample resources is automatically going to become a target.  So it is great if you have everything that your community will need, but if you have no way to protect it you can end up losing it all very quickly.

For even more tips on preparing for what is ahead, please see my recent article entitled “70 Tips That Will Help You Survive What Is Going To Happen To America“.

There are a lot of preppers out there that are only preparing for themselves and their immediate families, and anyone else that comes looking for assistance when things get really hard will end up looking down the barrel of a shotgun.

But there are so many others that feel called by God to prepare a place for large numbers of people to gather during the coming storm.  They are doing this by faith, because such places have never been needed before in modern American history.  Perhaps if you go all the way back to the Great Depression of the 1930s you could find large groups of people that needed somewhere to go, but since that time we have generally been regarded as the wealthiest and most prosperous nation on the entire planet.

Unfortunately, things are rapidly changing in this country.  Our economy is in the process of crumbling, there is evidence of social decay all around us, natural disasters are increasing in frequency and intensity, and World War 3 could erupt in the Middle East at any time.

If I am right, the time when these cities of refuge will be needed is not that far away.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans are not preparing for what is ahead, and so most of them will be absolutely devastated by the great trials that are directly ahead of us.

    How did mankind survive those generations before electricity, internet, firearms, automobiles, antibiotics, surgical techniques, modern science, modern tools and cell phones? Oh, that’s right. Things have never been better than they are today. The WHO is predicting 10.5 billion people by 2050. Sorry to burst your bubble but there’s going to be quite a few survivors from this fictitious collapse.

    • REALIST

      Will you be one of the survivors?

      • FortuneSeek3rz

        No collapse is coming in America. If you want to see a real collapse, go look at Syria.

        • RTL89

          You are so incredibly self-indulgent. The collapse sis happening everywhere, except ‘Murica. No sir-eee…… your leaders would NEVER lie to you or lead you astray. Boy, you sure do have gall.

          • FortuneSeek3rz

            Yeah, that 18 trillion dollar economy is a lot to be ashamed of. Idiot.

          • RTL89

            Half of that was accrued over the last 8 years alone, so your corporation of a country can poke its nose into the affairs of other countries… a 40-40% unemployment rate peddling itself as a 5% unemployment rate, 1/3 of the country on food stamps. All this needless suffering so the select few can pocket everybody’s wealth. It’s a LOT to be ashamed of, actually. But you know what’s worse? Your ignorance about it all.

          • FortuneSeek3rz

            Go find a suitable alternative since the most vibrant economy in the world isn’t enough for you. Speaking of self indulgence, you don’t know it when you see it.

          • RTL89

            Vibrant????? Get out of here, troll

          • FortuneSeek3rz

            18 trillion…dollars. American dollars.

            Name another country that has 116 trillion American dollars in national assets. Tick tock….

          • RTL89

            Assets?? More like debt. You’re either extremely delusional or a very good paid troll. I can’t decide which.

          • FortuneSeek3rz

            You aren’t very well read. Debtclock(dot)org keeps track of national assets. And it is currently 116 TRILLION dollars. Thanks for not answering my question by the way.

          • RTL89

            And you have no concept of basic accounting or economics. Debt isn’t an asset, it’s a liablilty. What you are basically priding yourself on is a nation that can’t live within its means so it prints an extraordinary amount of money that burdens every other nations’ future generations. Hardly something to be proud of.

          • FortuneSeek3rz

            I’m not talking about debt, I’m talking about tangible assets. Real estate, businesses, natural resources, intellectual property. The value of Apple alone is greater than the GDP of many countries.

          • RTL89

            That 19 trillion you speak of isn’t tangible; it’s debt-based fiat money. Only complete narcissists think that they can just print 19 trillion out of thin air and call that “being wealthier” than their neighbours. What can be more absurd than that notion? Since America has virtually no GDP since it eradicated its manufacturing end energy sectors, and Apple’s products are produced in impoverished nations, please tell me again about that GDP growth America supposedly has

          • FortuneSeek3rz

            You’re so confused. Debtclock-dot- org keeps up with debt and assets. The two are not the same. The national debt is 19 trillion and total national assets are 116 trillion. That’s not a bad debt to asset ratio when all is said and done.

          • Smilardog

            Hey, we have the largest Prison Industrial Complex in the world… That should count for something! hahaha

            You show signs of delusional idiocy… You only know enough to be dangerous.. You are definitely not very well read…here’s some facts you are not even devaluating… There is significantly less food now from Droughts in California and animals dying off in mass quantities. Not to mention bird flu, swine flu etc. Animals had to be slaughtered from …our car factories were shipped to China…Pineapple crops were shipped to Philippines. The government is not letting California farmers use water, their crops are dying and the government will not let them replant… There is an increase in Earthquake’s and Volcanic activity… Bad things are coming, no doubt about it..

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            Definitely delusional and a troll its a…. trol-lusional ha ha lol

            you are a MORON

            Nope, I provide the numbers that don’t align with preconceived notions. So inconvenient for the sheep.

            You are an i-d-i-o-t. Go build a bomb shelter and stock pile some ammo……

          • BerniMac

            The debt including ALL the states medicare medicade social security disability etcetera totals a bit more than 2 quadrillion dollars add in the derivatives and the total amounts to about 10 quadrillion dollars. The Dollar is backed by nothing but “faith” and obviously you have a great amount of it and that’s good, but the math doesn’t work in your favor regardless of how much you fist bump or push out numbers provided by the very same people who created the largest debt in human history. Go ahead and blah blah blah about anything you want to call prosperity but the numbers just don’t match up period. Since your name is fortuneseek3rz I’m assuming that you have a solid grasp of the working side of a balance sheet. If not it’s ok! Alright go ahead and spew your horrible rhetoric and tell us how terrific the economy is and if someone who doesn’t agree with you is a crybaby and should leave the country. We’re all waiting. Oh and BTW how come nobody has been able to get a chance to look in ft Knox? And why did the us tell the countries asking for their gold back that they had to wait a minimum of 5 years if they were holding it in vaults for safe keeping? Shhhhhh you’ll be alright these aren’t the Droids you’re looking for

          • Mark

            Hmm??? You must be a spokesman for your loser President Obummer. That figure of $116 Trillion is nonsense like Obummer economics. 116 trillion in what? All the over-inflated stock prices due to QE manipulations and bogus financial engineering is creating false wealth. I does not exist since there has not been any true economic growth. A lie just like Obummer.
            For major economies, if the ratio of private debt to GDP is at least 150 percent, and if that ratio grows by at least 18 percent over the course of five years, then a big crisis is likely in the near future. We are at that level and continue to increase debt while decreasing productive growth. I believe we are in trouble but if you are a troll for the Obummer then believe all you want to believe.

          • FortuneSeek3rz

            We are at 104.6 percent. Nowhere close to 150 percent. Please educate yourself before posting. We were also greater than 100 percent at the end of WWII and then we went on one of the largest economic expansions in a developed economy in world history by percentage.

          • Smilardog

            You mean after we destroyed the factories, and all of the infrastructure of all of Europe during WW2.

          • Mark

            I am educated and probably more than you. We went on an expansion because of the War. After the crash in 29 we were in a recession until after the war. Oh Assets + Liabilities = owners equity. Ex. I buy a car for $1000. I borrowed $700 from my friend and spent another $300 earned from my job. Now my assets are worth $1000 but my debt is $700. I really only own $300 of that car which is in this sake equity. This is our country which is comprised of debt. So when you speak of assets they really do not exist because it is being made up of debt. Are we paying it off. NOOOOO. Why??? Because we are broke.

          • Smilardog

            Because when a loan is made from a bank they create the fiat money off of your signature, but they never create enough to pay off the interest. So, debt never gets paid off, it gets discharged

          • Mark

            Absolutely, I agree.

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            I know first hand this is true in at least one case.

          • Schmedley

          • Gay Veteran

            oh my, the corporate bootlicker is back.

            from Zerohedge:

            “…Still more salt: despite unprecedented government debt and spending, new programs, particularly Obamacare, central bank debt monetization, and ultra-low interest rates, the purported recovery is the weakest on record, with the labor force participation rate at a multi-decade low, the number of people on food stamps recently reaching a record high, and real incomes back where they were in the 1970s. Those ultra-low interest rates have destroyed the incentive to save and forced retirees back into the workforce (the one group whose labor force participation rate has increased), but provided cheap funding to the carry-trade set, stock options-laden corporate executives, and Silicon Valley moguls. Their trophy art, cars, mansions, and spouses grace the media. That’s beyond salt, it’s rubbing people’s noses in it….”

        • Karen McKim-Altman

          America is in a DEPRESSION right now, but our leaders won’t admit it, and most Americans are so incredibly stupid and self-indulgent, they wouldn’t see a train coming at them if they were standing on the tracks. Debt, lack of jobs, millions of students with college education debt that they can’t repay, cost of food rising daily….and on and on. And don’t forget the “immigrants” infiltrating this country and bringing no job skills, diseases and we hand out welfare to them which this country cannot afford, with 1/2 of the population not paying taxes. Things will get ugly very soon.

          • FortuneSeek3rz

            And America will continue to have depressions, recessions and economic booms. But the collapse that’s being touted is not coming to America anytime soon. Sorry to burst your bubble.

          • Smilardog

            Exactly, it will be the bubbles that burst… Now, you are getting it

        • jaguar

          You people are so blind! Everything is collapsing! Keep up with current events!!! 40,000 people lost their jobs in Canada because gas went down, now their groceries have doubled, crime has expenitially gone up, especially home invasions.. Suicide has increased! Wake up! It’s coming to America!

          • RTL89

            yep, it’s super bad here in Canada. I have friends who lost their jobs here in Ontario when our manufacturing was outsourced in the 2008 crisis, and they’ve relied on commuting to Alberta to work in the oilsands. Now that those jobs are gone, it’s safe to say that Canada is officially in a depression. Nothing but low paying service sector jobs.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          Collapse coming…..get right with God.

  • Bill

    It is sad to think that those that are willing to give to others when the time comes will become targets of people willing to steal or kill in order to survive. If the providers decide to defend themselves by taking a life, it will certainly be a difficult decision as to feed or kill.

    Hope you think hard before you comment.

    • Robert

      Bill, for 16 years, I have been building a village of light… a refuge for 300 to 400. The issue of security is one that MUST require Heaven’s help. Sharing comes first… Deterrence next…
      Those that have and would kill and then take will have to be eliminated. Aren’t their souls already destined for elimination?

  • aldownunder

    I have always told the people I talk to about the financial and moral crisis that we WILL face one day to educate themselves and make up their own minds but don’t come running to me when it’s too late because you didn’t learn anything or where too broke or lazy, cause my bullets go as straight at you as every other intruder.
    In saying that my extended family and friends that are educated are just planning staying anonymous, isolated and safe until it’s all over, hopefully.

            you will die and find out there is no god. if you’re lucky, there’s an afterlife

          • sistersoldier

            Good Morning Sunny, that is how you start a conversation when you have not spoken in more than twelve hours. Now, I will die most certainly (death and taxes) the two certainties of this world buuuutttttt I will go to be with the Lord for all eternity because I believe that He is and He is a Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. I read a study once can’t remember where or when just the highlights and in this story scientists studied the afterlife. In summary what they discovered was that the soul which is the conscience part of man survives death of the physical body. My point is that what ever you believe is what you will receive. If you believe that there is a God and that He gave His one and only begotten Son as a sacrifice that we may have atonement for sin and a promise not to take part in the second death which is spiritual death, “for the dead in Christ shall rise first” and “the death of a saint is precious in the eyes of God” Did you know that He collects everyone of our tears in a bottle? Yes He does, praise God! But, on the other hand if you are so courageous to gamble with eternity and you believe there is no God then when your conscience or your soul breaks the sound barrier (in the twinkling of an eye) and you find yourself translated to the kingdom of God and you are standing before His throne denying His existence then you, your conscience, your soul and everything you ever did will be judged before the Bema seat of Christ, ”
            Romans 14:10-12 says, “For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat…so then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Second Corinthians 5:10
            tells us, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ,
            that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in
            the body, whether good or bad.” So to be on the safe side I think I will keep on believing that there is a God who loves me, cares for me and wants me to be with Him forever in a place that will never see to impress. Traveling galaxies and learning everything there is to know about the mysteries of God as, “but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel,
            when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He
            preached to His servants the prophets” the last trumpet – I will know even as I am known. Praying everyday for you soul to be delivered and for you to receive a personal touch from the Savior. He loves you Sunny and He does not want you to be eternally lost and to spend the rest of your life in torment. Earthly hell is not to be compared with eternal hell.
            In conclusion I leave you with this one thought, “I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, ans His train filled the temple” “And one cried to another, and said, Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory.” I just can’t deny who He is to me and He is all together lovely.

            You are so misguided. The story of Satan: “You were the anointed cherub who covers, And I placed you there. You
            were on the holy mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the stones
            of fire. “You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created Until unrighteousness was found in you. By
            the abundance of your trade You were internally filled with violence,
            And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane From the mountain
            of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of
            the stones of fire.…” God did not create evil – He created the wicked for the day of evil and He does not let it run free to destroy humans do as they refuse to call on God who is our deliverer! To God be the glory forever and ever through all ages without end! Maranatha!

            You, need to READ Scripture.
            Isa. 45:7 forming light and creating darkness, making peace and creating evil. I, יהוה, do all these.’

          • sistersoldier

            I have read the Bible from cover to cover and everyday of my life. You should work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Leave the elect to God for He alone is the Author and Finisher of my faith. Now you read the Bible this time for interpretation, content and finally context. Now go in peace as you have no part in me.

        No, he tells Jewish believers in the coming tribulation period (7 years) to flee to the mountains, “Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:” (Matthew 24:16 KJB). Did you catch that? “them which be IN JUDAEA”. Not the US or any other country. It’s for the Jews. And I have nothing to worry about the coming tribulation, because I’m going to be raptured out of here before it comes. :-)

        “The Lord is at hand.” ~ Philippians 4:5 KJB

        • Guest

          Amen!

        • Ricardo

          There is no 7 year tribulation. That is a myth made up by the Jesuits to make you think the anti-christ is yet to come. Its already here and growing in strength. It is the Papal system.

          • Joshua Alvarez

            Oh really? Maybe that’s why they deny a literal 7 year tribulation and are amillennial. Show me and quote from just ONE jesuit who “made up” the seven years. You won’t find one. Plus, it’s in the BIble:

            Daniel 9:27 KJB, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the
            midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to
            cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”

            One week. Read the context, and you’ll quickly see how these “weeks” are weeks of years – 7 years in length.

            It’s the Papists who want you deceived about this. God will not pour out His wrath on just and wicked like you believe is happening right now. You have a warped view of God. Repent.

          • Ricardo

            Confirming the covenant for one week is regarding the first coming of Jesus Christ. He was sacrificed on the cross in the middle of that week. The stoning of Stephen was the end of the week. The week is obviously not just a literal 7 days.

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            It could be that the Papal System is the false prophet…..but as for the tribulation we ain’t seen nothing yet…..the tribulation starts after “The Rapture” read 1 Corinthians 15 50-54 and 1 Thessalonians 14 13-18

          • Bobby Lokey

            Where in the Bible is the word “Rapture” mentioned?

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            The word rapture is not used in the Bible but latin rapturo Greek harpazo they mean caught up or snatching away.

      Indeed, but it is not wrong to prepare physically as well. I am sure the Lord will show you how to do that in the way He wants you to. God has lead our church in the areas of gardening, for example and we are currently looking into aqua-ponics. It is important to follow His lead as we need to get ready spiritually and physically, so we will be ready to provide for our families and for the people around us when the time comes.

    • Mark

      For those trusting in their piety and super special favor with God, remember. If Noah hadn’t been a prepper, no flesh would have survived the flood. The Bible stories were recorded for a reason!

      1Ti 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

  • Nick

    I think that there are a lot of people who will not prepare for the security needed. Going to countries where the populace is essentially disarmed means that you’re not thinking the whole situation through.
    Another aspect that is beyond my comprehension is the fact that so, so many individuals do not consider the fact that you need a plan that involves more than your immediate family.
    Let’s face it, people will become barbaric if and when society starts to crumble. There will be gangs with weapons ready to use them, while I’ve actually heard prepper’s saying that they have no need for guns.
    I have been working for years to get the so-called pro-2nd community to help in revitalizing the constitutional Militia. That in and of itself might prevent a completely destructive breakdown in the fact that you would have a structure in place for survival based on the existing state statutes about the running of Militia. However, they refuse to even consider the facts of law. This alone tells me that when it comes, its going to be so bad that I can almost guarantee rivers of blood in our streets.

      If there is a total collapse you best go into hiding for a month or two and let the masses kill / die off before you emerge and start to get going again.

    • Servaline

      When bullets run out, and they will, what will you do? Toss rocks? Maybe a sling shot and the skill of David would be a better choice. I’m an heirloom seed saver, but I know well that when the ground and air are poisoned sufficiently and there is no water, nothing will grow. Your wild game will likely be diseased like the human populations around you. If you think you’re going to have a positive source of water, just look around at the phenomenon happening across the earth with sources drying up, becoming contaminated, etc. When a flood, earthquake, tornado, or an infestation of vermin takes away your last 15 years of prepping, to what purpose was your prepping? When you have no food and your metabolism starts to go haywire and there are dead and diseased bodies decaying all around you, there will be no modern medicine such as antibiotics and likely no clean running water to keep the diseases away from your family. If you’re diabetic, an organ transplant patient, have had any kind of a procedure requiring blood thinners, are immune suppressed, you’re not going to get away from anything for very long. If you’re obese, in a wheelchair, have hip, knee or feet problems, you likely won’t make it to the nearest sanctuary. If you’re elderly and have nobody to carry you, you likely will stay where you are and starve to death or be killed. And what are you going to do when a group of several dozen show up and need what you have saved up for your family? Billions have been made by those selling fear to the prepper masses who have no faith. The bible, new and old testaments are full of stories of God providing when even the faith of a mustard seed is shown. You want to prep and have stores, I assure you that your heart will be tested. Look around at the masses sickened by the Western deathcare industry and see how many people would likely make it to the edge of town, let alone running for the hills. Of those who look like they could, ask yourself if you would feel safe lying down next to them when you’re too tired to go on. Things aren’t as rosy as the preppers would have it when reality sets in and they’re faced with acts of God, taking care of the sick and dying including their loved ones, and their wells run dry. I know, I was a prepper until the reality of what a total economic collapse and breakdown of society would really be like. As a follower of God’s command to love your neighbor, your future would be better served staying behind and caring and comforting those who couldn’t prepare or leave.

Dare I say that in America, land of the largest number of legally addicted pill poppers, most won’t have a hope of reaching a refuge.

            The idiocy of religion is I can live my life as the biggest arce holl in history but I can confess my sins on my death bed and all is forgiven.
            What BS.

          • Richard T.

            Indeed what you’ve said does sound very wrong. There are several aspect t what you have said here.
            1. If the person refused God all his life, it is very unlikely he would turn to God after all the evil he has done and repent. The reason is that the more evil you do, the more evil you become. So at the end of life, a real evil man is not going to repent and turn back to God.
            2. God has mercy on all of us. And that we are ALL sinners deserve hell and eternal death because we have all sinned against God. And God in His infinite mercy, does and did reach out to many sinners on their death bed that they can saved from eternal death. However, that doesn’t mean they will receive the same reward as Apostle Paul, John or other men and women of God who gave their life to God and lived for God.
            3. Also, your idea of “repenting” and “getting right with God” is a mental consent. That is not true in the Bible. The real repentance is a work of the Holy Spirit. That means it is the work of God, not a mental consent to some doctrinal truths.
            God is just. There is one salvation for all, that is Jesus Christ. And if there’s anything in anyone of us that can be saved, He will save us, even if that’s on the death bed.
            The sames goes for you. If you realize what kind of sinner you are and you cry out to God for mercy, He will save you.

          • Servaline

            Not exactly, El Mico. You can confess your sins to your dying breath, but unless you have faith and accept the blood of Christ IN faith, you’ll be dust and ashes until your appointed time at the end of the age we Christians await. Faith isn’t something you conjure up, it comes from the Almighty himself and he doesn’t mete it out equally to everyone He calls to Himself. The armor of God IS faith … faith that He alone is in control and that He is the potter and we are the clay and we accept His promise that we have a greater reward in the age to come if we believe and follow the Way. So, if you think that you’re going to just live in sin until you’re on your death bed and then confess them, you’ll do nothing more than return to the earth as compost. Religion is a bane and that too will pass when the true world government is in place, but another world-wide religion will come before that one and my best guess is you’ll embrace it. Our bible says that approximately 10% of the current world population will remain at the return of the true Messiah. That number just so happens to coincide with the 90% reduction in population that the religion of the elite projects. The chances that any of us typing on this blog will be standing when our Messiah returns are slim to none. We accept in faith His promises to us and we don’t fear death and pray always that we and our fellow ecclesia have faith to carry us through to the end of this current age of death. Atheists? Well, they (and others who still feel they can rule and/or take care of themselves) will have their day before God, but the plagues that God will pour out on unrepentant, unbelieving mankind in the last 3-1/2 years of this age will be a refiners fire from God himself and you will fear God when it’s over. So, is the full armor of God bullet proof? Of course, if one is looking for the kingdom first. Do we fear death because we are human, or are we human because we fear death?

            Yes, how can you be so irreverent about the power of God’s infinite love? There is no amount of evil anyone can do on this Earth that God will not forgive. Even Hitler was forgiven by God by using his omnipotent powers of forgiveness.

          • Ken Lowder

            Pretty wrong there. If a religious man dies and there is no heaven he just dies as there is nothing. If an atheist dies and there is a heaven, all is forgiven only if he accepted the sacrifice of Jesus. Without that he or she goes to the alternative, hell. Try reading the book before commenting

          • df NJ

            Ken L, or, hell, sin, and redemption is purely a hoax creating by the church so they have something to sell. Maybe what Jesus was really saying was you do not have to go to the temple to achieve salvation. Maybe everyone makes it into heaven regardless of our Early sins because of God’s infinite love for his children. I doubt the church leaders would have crucified Jesus for splitting hairs over church doctrine. I think he was a direct threat to their cash cow.

      Yes, prepare spiritually first and foremost. But that doesn’t contradict preparing physically. Once we are lead by the Holy Spirit, He will show us what to do to prepare. We shouldn’t focus on physical prepping as the all in one solution, but it is necessary. We need to be ready and prepare for our family and be ready to help our community.
      When things happen, they will need true Christians to stand up and point them to Christ! And Jesus do have compassion on the masses and provided for their physical needs.

      • Servaline

        When those living in Judea see the abomination of desolation they are to drop everything, not even return to the house for anything and head for the hills. What does Christ tell you if you are to be a follower of His way? Sell everything you have and give it to the poor and needy. When the disciples went 2 x 2 they were to take no extra shoes or provisions. Throughout the bible there are stories of God providing essentials to those with faith. I think for most of us our trial will be in the upcoming tribulation, a test to see where our heart is and whether we will kill or provide comfort, shelter and what food we have to those who for whatever reason could not prepare. Kings 17:11-13. For those whose heart is set on defending their stores and already hardening their hearts and preparing to shoot any intruders, you may find out that God’s hammer is way bigger than yours.

    Great post, Michael–and very reassuring.

    I thought I was the only one prepping not only for myself, but also for the elderly lady down the street, for the kids who get separated from their parents and are helplessly wandering the streets, for the injured guy whose wound is getting infected, and anyone else who genuinely needs help when SHTF. But I guess I’m not!

    I get it that we can’t (and don’t want to) prep for all the scoffing sheeple out there whose indolence and selfishness has helped the world get to this point. But at the same time, we don’t know where WE will be at the moment everything collapses–maybe we’ll be cut off from our family, friends, home, and preps, and will be obliged to ask others for help ourselves! If that happens to me, I’ll be grateful if my fellow-preppers wouldn’t point their weapons in my face, thank you…

  • Eric Hoelscher

    It is right to prepare. We should be prepared spiritualy for the return of Jesus Christ, and as well as storing food, pm’s if possible and security. It is always wise to have a plan. We must remember 1 Timothy 5:8 as well.

    • df NJ

      Is Jesus really returning or has God simply given up on man? Since we no longer hear booming voices from the sky demanding our repentance it seems to be God is now indifferent to us and no longer cares what happens to us one way or the other.

        Yes, i do believe that Jesus is going to return to earth. The bible says in Matthew 24:30 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. No, i do not believe that God has given up on us. It is easy to get discouraged, remember that The Lord is not slow concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9King James Version (KJV)

        9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

        Jesus will return, He never breaks His promises to us.

We are in verse 25+, for I took pictures of His hand with my ancient Pentax, 35 mm camera, and it is no silly cloud formation. The first act of George Washington and congress was to dedicate this new nation to the Lord. Pr. 1:20-33 only fit two nations; the US & Israel. God bless, & you’d best know the Lord because of what’s coming. Fiddlin

      The level of God’s disappointment with His creation of man is so great at this point He is now indifferent to us.

  • davidnrobyn

    Re your first 4 of 5 requirements (food, water, shelter, power): Up until around 130 years ago, the first 3 were covered by many, many in…VILLAGES AND TOWNS! You know, hundreds or perhaps thousands of people living together. What a concept! As far as #4 goes, guess what? Power=muscle power. If it all goes down, we WON’T be living at a 20th-21st century level and lifestyle. Fuhgeddaboutit! But we MAY just survive, as did our ancestors, as do about 2/3 of the world’s population today.

    • An Amish-like existence… not all that bad, but I will miss the Internet most of all.

      • davidnrobyn

        Yes, the Amish make it work as a communal situation. Communal within, but free-enterprise without, in their dealings with outsiders. It may be advisable to explore the pros and cons of the communal vs. the free-enterprise model. The pilgrims found out that things worked best for them when property was held privately and each person worked his own piece for his own benefit. Of course this would necessitate barter, or (better) some most-marketable commodity, aka money. Worth thinking about.

          You probably might be interested in:

          1) ALEC DEACON and his Prepper Literature for Preppers, he studies the Amish economical and life style and survival modell together with others!
          Read his books, visit his websites and Forum and Facebook website and watch his Online videos. Best prepper literature and prepper items in the net probably, also against diseases and plagues and pandemies sure to come.

          2) The webiste of Prof. Margrit Kennedy (R.I.P.) and her books and written articles about alternative currencies without Interest and money systems without interests and usury and private banks and speculations. Read about SILVIO GESELL and BIOREGIONALISM and so on and create your own economic modell and local and regional currency system for your community to survive the coming collapse of Economy and Society!
          It is really possible and realistic!

  • CharlesH

    Thanks so much Michael. The people setting up these ‘cities of refuge’ have received a message to do so and their faith gives them strength to move forward on it. When you see these types of things popping up around the globe – I’ll never say it’s coincidence.

    • df NJ

      My faith in Jesus and God’s love is that God would never allow so many to suffer as a result of economic collapse. I think people who believe in economic collapse simply do not have faith in a loving God.

      • CharlesH

        The message these people have received is from God – He wants us to be prepared in all our affairs. ONLY He knows what is coming but He’s giving His message across the globe to prepare. I believe an economic collapse is coming yet I have faith in a loving God. I am comforted in my personal relationship with God yet I know that the prudent man does prepare. Being prepared and having faith are NOT in conflict.

      • Bill G Wilminton NC

        We live in a country that has turned its back on God. We took prayer out of schools, socially accepted homosexuality, passed a law to legalize same sex marriage, mainline denominations now have homosexual pastors, 56 million babies have been murdered by abortion, drugs rampant in our culture, and thats the short list.

        We are Blessed that God is Merciful……. or maybe Sodom and Gomorrah was just Gods version of urban renewal.

        • df NJ

          I think greed, corruption, and the executive branch not enforcing anti-corruption laws is a bigger problem in this country than homosexuality.

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            It all goes together just read about Rome and Greece….it is called a moral collapse and we have collapsed. Same with the currency Rome Greece and USA all the same !

          • Gay Veteran

            you do know that the Roman Empire lasted for centuries, and continued for more centuries in the east

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            why dont you do a cut and paste about the history of the roman empire

          • Gay Veteran

            why don’t you try thinking for yourself and study the history of the Roman Empire

        • Gay Veteran

          you SEEM upset about abortion.
          how many unwanted babies have YOU adopted?
          and I see Bathhouse Bill is still fixated on Teh Gays

          • Bill G Wilminton NC

            All the babies are wanted and loved by God IMMENSELY, there is no measuring stick big, tall or large enough on earth to measure this amount of LOVE.

            Abortion is a SIN just as Homosexuality or Adultery is a SIN.

          • Gay Veteran

            hey Bathhouse Bill, YOU keep AVOIDING the question:

            how many unwanted babies have YOU adopted?

  • greanfinisher .

    When things get that chaotic, there’s not much sense of hoarding food, or keeping firearms, gasoline and other items of survival as the army will just confiscate those anyway.

    • df NJ

      Maybe not. They would be too busy corralling the rioting masses. But I doubt it is going to happen. All the powers that be have to do is raise worker’s wages and a financial collapse is avoided.

      • greanfinisher .

        The army has everything at its disposal to corral those rioters in short order.

        • Mr. Jameson

          You AND df NJ are a real pair of numbskulls. Wake up and smell the tyranny already. Sheesh.

            Yeah, that is what a lot of people in Nazi Germany said.

          • df NJ

            There’s a lot of love among fellow fascists. Maybe it’s time to have a right wing military style dictatorship. Everyone hates Congress. Everyone hates elections and voting. Everyone loves the military.

          • greanfinisher .

            If Obama should declare a state of emergency (aka martial law), you will see a level of tyranny that nobody bargained for.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          The problem is Obama will declare martial law to end civil disobedience ( rioting in the cities) that gives him dictatorial powers…..now how do you get him to step down….

          • greanfinisher .

            Under the right circumstances, Obama can remain in power indefinitely.

        • Gay Veteran

          the army can’t defeat a bunch of goat herders in Afghanistan

          • greanfinisher .

            I’m afraid that the army is only focused on securing the Unocal natural gas pipeline which traverses that country, and to provide security for the foreign mining operations in the highlands.

  • Donald Wilson

    You are so right Michael, for when the SHTF it will be to late. People need to get off their backsides, give up the television and other forms of mindless drivel and do whatever they can to get ready. I am sure time is short and the non-believers will be blind sided when a bank holiday or whatever trick the federal government decides to pull. Stores like Walmart here in Arizona have many bare shelves. When SHTF finally hits it will be to late. Good luck and good night.

  • Richard T.

    We were given a prophetic vision, detailing the refuges that God is setting up across the world and here in the US. It is not necessarily depending on the physical location, rather it depends on the group of people who are connected to the true living God. It is where God’s presence can come and dwell among them. It is like light in the darkness. And there will be many places like that throughout the nation. God will keep His people. But it will be with the people who are totally surrendered to Him and allow Him to do the work to prepare them for His presence to come.

    And we know that if we are lead by the Holy Spirit, He will guide us in the area of physical prepping as well. Nevertheless, I think is is totally different if we do it in God’s way. Not that physically prepping is not good, but I think the focus should be on the spiritual first and foremost. Without His presence, all the prepping means nothing. With His presence, even if we failed in different areas, God will cover us.

    • df NJ

      I’m glad you are here so the rest of us can know what God is thinking. Do you hear God’s voice in your head or do you just conclude what God might be thinking based on your study of the Bible?

      • Richard T.

        I was only sharing what God has given to us as a church. Please be careful not to mock the things of God. You do not have to believe what I said. But if you would like to find out for yourself, please take it to the Lord in prayer. The comment was meant to encourage people to seek God and trust in Him. It has nothing to do with me or my church. It has to do with what God would do and the welfare of His people. And if I am talking as if I am the only one who knows the truth, God will get me real quick, that you don’t need to worry.

    • Bill G Wilminton NC

      Richard T……read about the “Rapture” BIBLE 1 Thessalonians 4 13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15 50-54

  • Bernd Krause

    Are there any places of refuge in Germany? And if so, where?

  • Bill G Wilminton NC

    The most important preparation is spiritual and that is to be right with God….have your Bible and read it daily. Yeshua is Coming Soon !.

    It is fine and a good idea to be physically prepared for a short interval power outage from a storm or other act of nature. But you must have trust in God for what is coming. The trust is that God will take “His Bride Away”… for all those that love Him and live by His word we shall be taken off the face of the earth to heaven and this is called “The Rapture”.

    When we leave ” are taken up ” the tribulation days will start and “the man of perdition” will be revealed. This my friends is called the pre-tribulation Rapture.

    God Bless My Friends

    Shalom

    • Richard T.

      It does say in the Bible that pray that we be worthy to escape all these things. Luke 21:36. So that means not all of us will escape. Either way, get prepared!

      • Bill G Wilminton NC

        Only those in The Rapture…….

    Michael, as usual, an article to make us think. I’m one of your readership and enjoy visiting here often, but this is my first time reading comments after an article. There are a lot of really good posts in the comments. All food for thought.

      It’s funny how people never want to put the Beatitudes on display.

  • Devorah

    So how do I find out where to go, here in the west of the US. I am a Grandma with two grandsons one year old and 11 years old and I can contribute I am not destitute and can provide for myself (but need community) i have my own RV just need somewhere to park it with like minded believers and also am knowledgeable in gardening, am a good cook, knowledgeable in canning and have traveled the world so knowledgeable about world events and political BUT the most important I am a Torah observant and Know Yeshua as my Savior.

    • Philosopher

      Well maybe you could start asking people at your church rather than strangers on the Internet. Where is the mother of your grandchildren? You left her out so my guess is she is in prison or hooked on drugs or both.

      • ALWAYSTOMORROW

        Your assumptions may be correct. Another possibility other than prison or jacked up on drugs is she may have died from cancer.

        You are coming to a conclusion based on nothing.

        • Philosopher

          Perhaps. But experience gives the most obvious conclusion. And you didn’t answer, why ask strangers on the Internet about a safe place? Isn’t that what a house of worship is meant to be? A safe place for the flock?

          • GeorgiaPeachie

            I don’t think all that many churches are prepping or creating places for people to live. When the time comes, I’m sure they will organize and do so.

  • Devorah

    Oh I forgot to say, that the PS 91 is definitely our Home Address BUT in all my fasting and praying Elohim DID tell me that ONLY those in the Secret Place, (prayer closet) will hear HIS voice and HE will protect them if they are listening to His voice are to FLEE when HE says, because they see the storm coming and FLEE from it! So those of you that think you can sit around and get raptured out sorry that is not going to happen and we ARE our brothers keeper but we and our brothers need to do something to help yourself and others. There is a storm coming and be wise and Joel 2:15-17. Jeremiah 45:5 HIs sheep hear HIS voice and follow Him…

    • Philosopher

      It is quite cheap in most areas.

  • John E

    I do not see anything ominous or foreboding in the abandonment of urban areas and staking out of new locations by humans. This is what primates do. They gather collectively at a location of a resource and collaborate to use that resource. As the resource becomes exhausted or over used the primates move out in concentric circles.

    Of course people are more complex than a congress of baboons, but the model fits. From Urban to Suburban to Rural stakeouts has been under way since the 1960’s. at least. It is the natural order of things.

    For humans the resource could be a body of water, or an area of lower taxes, or an area free of potential for civil unrest, or an area where complimentary survival and production skill sets exist, or any number of factors.

    As a nation America was staked out as an area free from an oppressive government, rigid class system and unlimited natural resources.

  • durango

    God bless those who are preparing places of refuge for others. This restores my faith in humankind.

  • raymeejrs

    is there any of these communities that would take in two or three like minded people to help?My wife and I are in the suburbs of Cleveland and would love to find a small group to help and live..

  • Dave of OK

    After the RESET the middle class (now the lower class) will be a nuisance to the upper class. The well-off will want the lower classes numbers to be brought “into balance.” In order to survive people are going to have to be very enterprising. They cannot wait for the government to tell them what to do or wait for the promise of a job. Even after the RESET politicians are going to be sold out to the upper classes. The government, during and after the RESET crisis, will want to relocate the lower class to the cities for “easier control and distribution of limited resources.” After the RESET will be the time to move (if you do not already done so before the RESET) to a small town, a town that is remaking itself. A small town that is dependent on localized production of goods and services that it needs to live as a post-industrial community. A small town that is dependent on localized permaculture agriculture to feed itself. A small town that is learning what it means to live with limited growth and sustainable living practices. That is the future.

    • Philosopher

      Time to learn a skill. Growing some food and raising some chickens or pigeons or quail or rabbits. Protein and some type of green. Get ready to used old towels instead of TP. You can wash and re-use towels. TP takes up a lot of space. It will be a luxury that few will be able to afford.

      • Dave of OK

        It sounds like you are getting the idea. but remember that we are going to have to do this survival in groups. I don’t think solo preppers understand the enormity of what is coming, unless you are planning to be mobile during the RESET. As Michael talked about, we need start moving to small towns and getting involved in its politics and helping the town reinvent itself. In becoming a self-sufficient in production of goods and services, in growing its own food and in defending its borders.

    • Mark

      I agree. When do you think the reset will happen?

      • Dave of OK

        I wish it would happen soon. The longer we carry on this ponzi scheme, the more our standard of living after the RESET will be lowered. Right now if it happened, we would be talking the average monthly wage in the U.S. will be $400. This keeps on for a few more years, we could be talking a standard of living the equivalent of what is the Indian average monthly wage today ($265). And don’t expect living costs will move that far down in the RESET either. There will be some deflation, but not on the scale of where wages are heading: 13:1. This will be a hard for spoiled Americans to even try to adjust. The death rate will be tremendous.

        • Mark

          Thanks for the response. I am concerned and quite frankly have been preparing financially but need to prep for the other things like food and shelter. It is hard when you have a job or family to just pick up and move to a remote area but realize this may be the only option. I am very concerned.

  • MaxRockatansky33

    Those are not ‘refuge places’ but places for refugees from Syria I’m afraid.

  • Bill G Wilminton NC

    BULLSEYE…….

  • Jennifer Wheeler

    Many of the comments below is why a “refuge” might not always be a good idea. It’s constant arguing and bickering and nothing has even happened yet. The said leaders and builders will be in control of these refuges as well and that gives them control of you and your families. When given the opportunity most people will abuse that power when they have it so you might find yourself worse off than being on your own because people don’t reason anymore, they attack. So be wise about the refuge you take and the company you keep, be wiser about the company you offer.

  • walcon

    Hate to bust a bubble, but refuge neighborhoods will be the first place the gov agencies will visit. They don’t want self preserved people running around their lands. Their excuse will be that you can’t “have” while others do “without”. You must share and die along with the rest of them.
    You don’t understand how evil these people are.
    You must come to peace with the inevitable end, then all else doesn’t matter. Then do the best you can to survive.

  • Rich D

    Yes, there will be a collapse, when, i don’t know. The main reasons it will happen:
    Overpopulation
    Ignorance
    Religious beliefs(brainwashing)
    Make believers want to get to heaven, but none are in a hurry to get there. Go figure

    A previous poster was making all kinds of rosy statements about GDP, national debt vs.national assets with all their data coming from debclock(dot)org. Unfortunately, this person was not only incorrect about their interpretation of the data but also about where the data came from: it’s actually usdebtclock(dot)org.

    That minor detail aside, there’s a whole issue this individual seemed to overlook: unfunded liabilities. With national assets totaling $116T, unfunded liabilities would consume roughly $101T. What our poster also failed to recognize was the continually DIMINISHING value of assets and the INCREASE in unfunded liabilities. Let’s take a longer look at the data:

    1) National Debt: $19T++
    2) GDP: $18T+
    3) National Assets: $116T-
    4) Unfunded Liabilities: $101T+

    NOTE: “+” or “-” behind the numbers indicates continuous change, direction and relative rate.

    Looking at the above, we’re behind the ball in every category and, with diminishing assets, steadily getting worse. And this is the tip of the iceberg! Currency and credit derivatives are a staggering $458T. This is unfathomable considering all global economies are debt based!!! If we add up the debt and asset columns we find we’re approximately (Are you ready for this?) $431 TRILLION in debt if all accounts were called for payment. I flatly defy anyone to tell me where the money would come from to satisfy this debt…

  • Jill Watts
