Does God Want Us To Be Preppers for Survival or Revival?

Nelson Waters has another good post (Does Jesus Want Christians to be “Preppers?”)

at thegospelintheendtimes blog which starts off:

“The Church is divided on whether we should prepare for the Apocalypse to come. Some are putting away “gold, groceries, and guns” and planning to be Survivalists. Others plan to trust that God will provide in days that are approaching and aren’t preparing at all. So, what does scripture say? Is there a verse in the New Testament in which Jesus clearly teaches that we should put food away for the hard times?  Does Jesus want Christians to be “Preppers?”

prepper


Shockingly, there is a verse that supports this idea; its Matthew 24:45 and an identical verse in Luke 12:42 :

Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time (Gk: KAIROS, meaning “appointed time”)? (NASB)

As a Church we tend to read past this highly important, yet obscure verse found in Matthew’s version of the Olivet Discourse (Jesus’s primary teaching on the end times). One day a few years ago, I was “reading past” this verse and ignoring what it meant just as I had a couple dozen times before. It was on that day, however, that it struck me that Jesus was giving us a riddle. He is asking “who is this wise and faithful slave?” We have three clues:
• He is a wise slave
• He is put in charge of his master’s household
• He provides food for that household at the appointed time

Have you guessed it yet? It’s Joseph, the wise and faithful slave that Potiphar put in charge of his household. Joseph obviously provided food for that household, both Hebrews and Egyptians, in the seven-year famine. Once we solve the riddle of this verse, its meaning opens up to us: Jesus wants us to be “Josephs” for his household in the coming “appointed time.”
