Mat 24:6 -21

wars and rumors of wars - nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and earthquakes in divers places.
Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name's sake.
false prophets shall arise, and shall lead many astray.

When therefore ye see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let him that readeth understand),

for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be.

Rev 6:2 - 17
1st seal - a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a bow; and there was given unto him a crown: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.
2nd seal a red horse: and to him that sat thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
3rd seal a black horse; and he that sat thereon had a balance in his hand. A measure of wheat for a shilling, and three measures of barley for a shilling; and the oil and the wine hurt thou not.
4th seal a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

My priorities for prepping are as follows....by importance in reflection of the "Now". (Priorities change based on season, global situations, and internal strife)

1. Hurricanes (I live on the Florida Atlantic Coast)
2. Economic Collapse. (Like if the Chinese call in the bonds they own)
3. Terrorist Attacks, or immigrant uprisings like those happening in Europe.
4. Other Severe Weather causing power, water, and gas outages
5. Civil Unrest...or complete breakdown of civil order
6. Natural destructive phenomena (Like Coronal Mass Ejection), or massive meteor strike.
6. Nuclear or dirty bombs...including EMP
7. Repeal of the 2nd Amendment and the attempt to confiscated guns from law abiding Americans
8. Foreign invasion....or UN control of government entities.
9. Martial Law for whatever reason.
10. National Workers Strike. (Unions)

The darkness. We will see darkness in every sense of the word, consume us before the light returns in victory.

Ephesians 6:12 - For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. HCSB

Natural disasters have always been my main focus I still believe they of some local problem cause by some spill or other mistake are the most like threat . Second is civil unrest. I live far from the city but it would not take long for serious unrest to effect life every where.
Our priorities are simple live long enough to sport it out.
Security
Food and water
Shelter
Maintain a life worth living for days months or years if need be.

Hillary I have seen the light " Repeal of the 2nd Amendment and the attempt to confiscated guns from law abiding Americans" no longer applies to me I have disarmed I will count on you to save us.

I don't believe the end is near or that we are all about to overwhelmed by a zombie apocalypse. I don't subscribe to the idea that global warming will cause the ocean to flood my home.

I do think that we are becoming more complacent and less concerned about our neighbors. I think that people are less inclined to work and more compelled to take, rather than earn. My eye opener was Katrina.

I prepare for a short term disaster and the possibility that the Government will object to me owning a firearm.
I think we agree, this is going to be a slow slide into anarchy

Every 4 years prices double until every 2 years and then every year...

Then like Argentina 260 percent inflation becomes 400 percent and then 1760 percent etc etc.

We are frogs in a slowly heating pot.

We are hanging out waiting for the pre Trib rapture of the church and stocking up on water..food and ammo..in case it is a mid or post trib Rapture. Whatever is our fate..the democrats will find our shooting irons hot and empty. Remember the Alamo! Remember Golliad! What that should have taught is there are certain conditons which are worse than being dead.

My biggest concern and my starting point was and has been natural disasters. They come every year so to me it makes sense to prepare for what will most likely affect me. Now I'm starting to get more and more concerned about growing civil unrest. While the stats say we're living in one of the most peaceful times in our history, all it takes is a spark to light the powder kegs and my corner of the world will be the next one on the news.

Prepping for lunch, J/K. After being in hear a day, I am prepping for everything I can afford without going crazy.
But Hurricanes are a thing my wife are prepping for..
SHTF is always something you need to try to prep for, and but our society is falling apart and financial and structural collapse is always a concern to prep for.

Living in Oklahoma the original reason I started prepping was because of the high tornado threat during the spring and early summer. We can also have pretty vicious ice storms during the winter so there is always a good chance of losing power, getting stuck at home, stuck at work, etc. As the social climate continues to change I have found myself feeling more and more worried about social unrest. With one of the most critical presidential elections coming up and a feeling of uneasiness and fear has been creeping up. My wife and I talk about different scenarios constantly and she has bought into my "crazy" (her words) way of thinking. I read as much as I can and try to learn and perfect new skills all the time.

One of the best lessons I learned in the Marine Corps was that whenever you have a plan the first step is to make a second plan because plan A will almost always fail. I apply that philosophy to my prepping because the last thing I would want would be to be 100% ready for a tornado but have my house attacked by a gang of thugs who want some food.

It is better to be partially ready for many situations than completely ready for one.

Whatever may come that doesn't necessitate gas masks and tyvek suits. Living in hurricane alley we're prepared to not need to "run to the store" for up to a month. If life suddenly became a TWD episode or a Rawles novel ... well, nobody lives forever.

The collapse of the US.

The greatest advent in slavery was letting the slaves choose how to serve. It gave a sense of freedom. But most of us end up debt slaves paying stupid amounts of real money for money loaned that never existed. Check out fractional reserve lending if you dont know what that is.

The derivatives market is going to burst to the tune of 80 trillion plus.

The banking bubble of 2008 was only 2 trillion.

Good luck. The prepping season may in its autumn.
