State of Emergency; prepared

See also

The metro Atlanta area was not prepared for the winter storm that hit two weeks ago dropping snow and ice that shut down the city. This time advanced preparations have been put into place in advance of the threat of yet another winter storm forecasted to hit the metro area, once again. The North Georgia Mountains are expected to receive the worst, in possible two consecutive blasts.
Stores were overwhelmed with a barrage of customers, stocking up on essentials in advance of the upcoming storm; heeding the warnings. Many counties have cancelled schools, employers have given employees the day off, etc. The governor has called for a state of emergency.
There is coming a greater state of emergency than even this winter storm warning. Some are prepared, while others will be taken by surprise as foretold in Bible prophecy. While many know it is coming, they choose to remain unprepared for the inevitable event.
“For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” I Thessalonians 5:3-11 (NIV)
While we can’t always prepare and know what the weather will do or what catastrophes may strike, we can be ready for the coming of the Lord. For some it will be a welcome event, and for others, a day of fear and dread.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13 (KJV)
“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:37-39 (KJV)
Advance preparation is vital prior to the threat of a storm.
