THE ARK PROJECT

PREPARING THE ARK

Many Christians are convicted that they should be making preparation for the things they see now coming upon the world as well as the United States of America.  Watchman warnings have been going forth for many years as to the things we see today in regard to the Last Days as found in Scripture.  Even an unbeliever can research the water and food shortages worldwide, and quickly realize that famine and thirst for the world’s population are both on the near horizon!  As a Watchman, my primary mission is to the true “Church of Jesus Christ”, not to a denomination, sect, or some End-of-The-World cult bent on making war on the U. S. Government or Military in this hour!  This is not to state that one should not protect his life and that of his family from the darkness now encompassing the world by whatever means are at his disposal if attacked by an enemy, be it foreign or domestic!  Need I remind each Christian reading this, that we are “family” as brothers and sisters in the Lord?  Let us prepare an Ark in our lives, so that when the rain of the coming destruction begins to fall on all humanity, and it will, we will be ready.  The purpose of this article is to help you prepare your personal Ark, or perhaps to become part of a group of “like-minded” believers who are building an Ark.  This group of believers might be in your local area, or even in another state.  If the Holy Spirit has impressed you to prepare individually, or to join a group of “like-minded” believers, then you need to listen to His voice and follow His guidance!

NOAH’S ARK REBUILT

Perhaps most readers are not aware that a 1/3 scale replica of Noah’s Ark, based on the Scriptural Blueprint provided to Noah, has been built.  However, a full-scale replica of the Ark is scheduled for completion in October 2012.  Whether you take this as a “sign” that we are living in a type of  day and hour of Noah’s day, or mere coincidence, I find it simply amazing that the Ark God commanded Noah to build is being reproduced in a FULL-SCALE model in our generation!

Matthew 24:37
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

1 Peter 3:20
Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

THE BASICS

WATER: The most basic need of all humans and animals is water.  The precious resource of pure drinking water is quickly being depleted around the world as water tables fall and massive pollution of streams and rivers continue.  Scripture is clear that water will become even more precious in the days ahead.  Please read the following article regarding water and the importance it occupies in our daily lives now and in the future.

http://www.survivaltopics.com/survival/how-long-can-you-survive-without-water/

You cannot rely on anything but an abundant source of water to supply your needs for drinking, cooking, and basic means of hygiene.  If the electric power grid shuts down for any reason, be it an EMP strike, terrorism, foreign intervention by war, a deliberate shut down by those in power as a means of control, or the poisoning of our water systems to bring about the Illuminati Plan for “Order Out of Chaos”, without drinking water, you will be dead in less than two weeks!  What can you do to assure that your water supply is abundant and available?  First, you must determine how long you will need to depend upon this supply and the source.  If you can determine the time frame water is needed, then you have several options to consider.  A private well which requires, in most cases, a well-pump and electrical current to run the pump and get the water out of the ground.  Then, a generator is needed to run the pump for backup when the power grid goes dead as it has many times in the last several months in various parts of the U. S. and around the world.  If you pursue this course, then a propane generator is probably the best choice, as propane can be stored in 500 gallon tanks which are easily accessible for generator use.  For survival only planning, a generator which is large enough to run the well pump and perhaps a water heater, should be sufficient to accomplish the task at hand.  Have a backup water supply in either a stored safe place, or the ability to filter your own water supply from unclean sources such as creeks, ponds, lakes, rivers, etc.  The following systems will serve in helping to solve the “water problem” we all face.  Calculate the amount of water, at the minimum, you will need for drinking, cooking, and cleaning, for the number of people you plan on providing for, and the length of time you wish to plan for.  The following distributor provides much information regarding the various sizes of filters offered, and how they work in the real world.  Let me state once again, I have no “connection” with any products being sold at any of these websites, and receive NO COMPENSATION in any form from any of them!  My only desire is to provide usable information that will help the “Body of Christ” prepare for the days we face in the dark days now creeping over the earth.

FOOD: Unlike water, you can live three to four weeks without food.  This is based upon your body fat, your physical condition, and the state of your overall  health.  This is the second most important thing you need in your survival planning for the days ahead.  If you are in a weakened state due to the lack of water and food after a few days or weeks, then the ability to use any means of defense,  “flight” or “fight”, is lost due to poor planning or the lack thereof!

http://www.survivaltopics.com/survival/how-long-can-you-live-without-food/

For my fellow “brothers and sisters in Christ”, I have negotiated a 25% discount off of already discounted prices from retail with Mountain House’s largest distributor.  This offer is good until, 4/15/2010, on Mountain House #10 cans of Freeze Dried Food, and the shipping is FREE!  If you ever intend to buy Mountain House Freeze Dried Foods, then this may well be the last opportunity you have to do so at today’s prices, and at a 25% discount.  Check out the other distributors if you like, and if you can find a better price than 25% off of the following prices shown including free shipping – then buy it!  Click on Freeze – Dried Foods on the left hand top of the screen which will take you to the Mountain House product line.  One case contains six #10 cans, so after adding each item to your shopping cart, just increase the number of #10 cans of each item you desire to purchase until your order is complete.  DO NOT ORDER ONLINE!  You will not get the 25% discount unless you call Nitro-pak direct on their toll-free number, hit “O” for operator, and ask for Lisa Fellows.  Tell Lisa that you are placing your order under the 25% discount available per Gary Blevins, and then just read her your order directly from the shopping cart appearing on your computer screen.  Verify with Lisa that you total cost is exactly 25% less than that shown in the shopping cart before providing your credit card information.  This will assure you that you are getting the 25% discount that would not otherwise be available via direct purchase on the web site.  The following is provided only as an example as to how you might start preparing for a One Year Supply for one person.  This would have to be supplemented by additional food, either more freeze-dried, dehydrated, canned food, peanut butter, etc. in order to provide the “good calories” needed to maintain good health for one person for one year.  Empty calories placed in some “One Year Supply” Units are being sold as having the needed calories per year by adding fruits, sugar, and beverages in their “calorie count”.  Things that I call “empty calories”!  Do not be mislead by this type of advertising, but buy your own “supplemental foods” elsewhere!  Costco sells freeze-dried pinto beans in buckets which would be a great addition to the Mountain House Freeze-Dried product line.  Use your own imagination and budget in planning for your food supply, don’t rely on someone else to design the type and quality of food you have in storage, as you, not they, will be the one eating and paying for it! 

The design of your supply of food will be based upon your budget, personal taste, and personal needs.  In the above example, you would take an additional 25% discount off the total shown above by calling Lisa Fellows direct and providing my name to Lisa.  In the example above, that means you would deduct $670.09 from the total leaving a balance of $2010.29.  If you find yourself in dire circumstances with your finances, then you might want to consider the purchase of the Freeze Dried Pilot Crackers supplemented with Jif Extra-Crunchy Peanut Butter (my favorite brand) in quantity from Sam ‘s Club or Costco.  This would be a cheap source of protein, and the peanut butter has a relatively long shelf life compared to other products and canned goods.  Any preparation is better than no preparation when you, and those you care about, are hungry!

http://www.nitro-pak.com/

ONE YEAR SUPPLY OF FOOD

Here’s a tool to use to estimate how many calories per day you will need to continue in good health.  Simply multiply the numbers arrived at by 365 days to determine how much food is needed.  Where these calories come from is your personal decision, but if you intend to survive, it is up to you to make the provision and decision of what type of food, the source of the food, and the amount of calories you require or desire in your diet each day.  Do not purchase already pre-packaged “One Year Supply Plans” offered by anyone.  Do your homework and planning on this front, as your life will depend upon how well you have prepared!

WHY FREEZE DRIED

Perhaps you are not familiar with the difference between dehydrated and freeze-dried food, so the following information will help in that area; and will disclose Mountain House’s full retail pricing along with the discounted case pricing.  However, the 25% discount available from Nitro-pak mentioned above will not be shown.

Those of you who are looking to add even more variety to your food storage planning might also want to consider the following item available directly from Costco.

SEED TIME AND HARVEST

FOOD PREPARATION

If you have freeze – dried food, then all you need to do is heat water to a boil, and pour into your servings of freeze – dried food for a meal.  No cooking required!  Dehydrated Food needs to be cooked 20-25 minutes and allowed to cool another 5-10 minutes prior to eating.  That takes precious fuel, be it propane or wood, as well as time and added clean up requirements for the cooking utensils.  For more information on the differences between storing freeze – dried food vs dehydrated food vs canned food from the store, please read the information provided at the extensive “survival” links on this and many other topics.  Here’s one recommendation:  I suggest you consider using propane which is easy to store and use in an emergency.  Wood is also an option if you have access to an abundant supply and a wood stove or grill.

SHELTER

If you cannot pay rent or make a mortgage payment, or if it is simply not safe to stay in the area you live when everything falls apart, where are you going to find shelter for yourself and your family?  The term “homeless” is becoming more commonplace with each passing day!  Every person reading this could find themselves homeless in a moment of time for any number of reasons other than the ones mentioned above.  Here’s just one option, but it is a viable and inexpensive one to consider for Four Season Living.

SLEEPING GEAR AND CLOTHING

Now that you have considered the basic things needed – water, food, and shelter – you also need to have warm clothing and sleeping arrangements especially in the dead of winter.  Here’s a web site that has items available at discounted prices.

PROTECTION AND OTHER CONCERNS

It is only common sense that he who maintains “control” over his life, keeps his goods!   If you wish to keep your freeze – dried food and the other necessities of life, you must have some means of protecting those things from others who wish to remove them from your possession!  Since the articles on “Survival” go into detail about the various means of providing protection and being in control of your environment, I’ll leave preparation in this area up to the experts to explain the options, and up to each individual to take the action they deem necessary for their own personal situation.

FORMER KANSAS STATE TROOPER

Greg Evensen, a former Kansas State Trooper, is a born-again Christian who has gone, and is going, to great efforts to warn the “Body of Christ”, and to help them prepare for what is on the horizon.  Greg has military and police contacts throughout the nation who keep him appraised of what is happening or being planned within these services for the citizens of this nation.  It is not pretty!  Parts I and II of Greg’s message can be found at the bottom of the following article.   Other information is available on Greg’s website.

ULTIMATE SURVIVAL MANUAL

Holly Deyo has written what many believe to be the Ultimate Survival Manual for almost any emergency that might arise.  If you want the facts at your finger tips for in-depth planning for nuclear war, food shortages, water shortages, and living “off the grid”, then this manual will provide much information to accomplish just that!

GOD’S PLAN OF PREPARATION

If you have not already read the article found in the July 2009 archives, then I suggest that you read what the Word of God states about making preparations while you can, and the things you should consider in your plans.

https://watchman33.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/gods-plan-of-preparation/

IN SUMMARY

My prayer is that you will get serious about preparing the “basics” for yourself and your loved ones, so that when tough times become even more tough and dangerous to endure, then you will not be listed in either the category of the “five foolish virgins” or with the infidels.

1st Timothy 5:8

 8But 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.

 Matthew 25:1-12

 1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

  1. As I have been very pleased with your postings, as being informative, factual, and well balanced, I am now even more pleased as I read through your current posting.

    Over the years – specifically in the run-up to Y2K and immediately afterwards – I have encountered many a Christian who threw “preparation” to the wind and put their “whole faith” in believing that God would make every provision.

    But as one considers the number of, and the depth of those, Scriptures that point otherwise – that is, that we ARE to make preparations for those difficult times that lie ahead.

    Only a fool would take a blind step off the Empire State Building and not expect to fall to his/her death – but that is what many Christians – and others – are doing to their lives, and the lives of their loved ones, by not preparing for what lies ahead.

    But then, in not preparing, the excuse is that “this is America – God’s Chosen Nation! Nothing bad will happen here.”

    But then, if you read through the Old Testament books of the prophets (I am currently reading through Jeremiah), that is exactly how the Israelites believed – that they were “God’s Chosen People” and that surely God would not bring forth judgment against His own people.

    How wrong they were !!!

    And how very very wrong Americans are in believing the same !!!

    Judgment is at the threshold, America !!!

    And we are not only living on borrowed time, it is already past midnight!

    Any week now … any day … any moment … without warning …

    it will all be over …

    and the realization will set in, that America will never be what it was, that the American Dream was only just that, and that it has become the American Nighmare … without end, without mercy, except through agonizing death …

    How much moreso to have one’s faith anchored in Christ Jesus, for whether we live, or die, we are in Him, and are His, and will live with Him FOREVER, as Priests and Kings – and as Friends – over ALL that God has created.

    My family and I are doing what we can to prepare. Sometimes, it feels overwhelming, in all the details, and costs, of everything that has to be done.

    But doing nothing is almost a sure guarantee of failure.

    But even if one could do everything, it would be no absolute guarantee of success.

    So one does what one can do, with the resources at one’s disposal, with a whole lot of faith, and in being receptive to the leading and direction of the Holy Spirit.

    And … pray … with a circumcised heart.

    • Hi Loren!

      Thank you again for your kind comments! Your insight and comments are the “Last Word” on what I was attempting to accomplish by posting “The Ark Project“!

      Gary a. k. a. Watchman33

  2. watchman thankyou again for your insights, I hope your warnings will continue to wake up people as to the coming wrath that will fall upon babylon in under an hour. I pray that followers of Jesus the Christ have already made provisions and prepartions, first to come out of her not to partake in her sins! separating themselves from the world and the things of this world for this is only temporary, then to make preparations for the body. but as I see it time is very short whether it is today or in five years or the distant future. we need to be ready, watching and waiting . but my question still stands and that is do you believe that coming out of babylon also means physically leaving or just spiritually separating ourselves? just a side note I always think of joseph being given warning through pharaoh’s dream and God giving the meaning and joseph taking action upon it. thank you again for your hard work and wisdom the Lord has given you..

    • Hi Chuck!

      There are two Babylons, spiritual and physical. Coming out of “spiritual Babylon” should be relatively easy for a Christian, but “physical Babylon” poses an entirely different set of problems. As I see it, the City of New York is “Mystery, Babylon The Great”, while America is the End-Time Nation of Babylon, the country. However, the Babylonian System is world-wide via the United Nations, the world banking system, and the Illuminati. If you live in New York City or Washington, D. C., do everything possible to physically move! If that’s not possible, have a safe “ARK” to run to as described in “THE ARK PROJECT“. As for leaving America as a nation, I don’t think that is necessary, safe, or even fesible for most of us. You “come out of physical Babylon” by coming out of and being independent of the world’s system and its control over your life. Get out of debt, get rid of the Babylonian lifestyle and all the “trappings” that hinder you from being separate from Babylon’s physical control. Do you have stocks or money in a bank account, or other assets such as a new car or fancy home, that are preventing you from having the needed funds to prepare when things fall apart? Remember Lot’s wife! Sodom was her Babylon of the day. She could not completely turn her back on her life and “stuff” even after the angels told Lot and his family to flee to a place of safety, since Sodom was going to be totally destroyed. If you have not physically prepared to live “off the grid” when the day comes that will require you, as a Christian do so or receive the “Mark of the Beast”, then you are “still in Babylon”! Look for an “ARK” to flee to with other like-minded believers, or build your own…

      Gary a. k. a. Watchman33

  3. watchman thankyou, we are on the same page about this subject. keep up the great work and may the Lord bless you and your family.

  4. Gary,
    I have been trying to play catch up on all your posts since my good friend chuck has told me of your site. I thank you for having the courage in the Lord to proclaim the truth on the web. Many are being deceived, many do not have eyes to see and ears to hear, but those who do must be ready. Thanks again for your insight and Brother, I look forward to meeting you someday. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and your family.

    Chuck,
    Thank you for directing me to this site, and I pray that we will be ready for that dark day. May the Lord’s Grace be with you, J.P. and yours until we meet again.

    • Hi Greg!

      Appreciate your kind comments. If just one person has been “informed” and therefore engages in preparation of an “ARK” as a result, then my efforts have all been worthwhile…

      Gary a. k. a. Watchman33

  5. Thank you so much, once again Watchman33! I am a grandmother helping to raise four grandkids. I am on partial Soc. Security ($545/mo) and other assistance…ugh. I cannot do what you are suggesting above. However, I rejoice that you prepare those who can.

    I dread what is ahead, knowing that I cannot do much. God is my fortress, my Great physician, and my anchor. It is becoming such a dark, dark time. Four kids to take care of here. I can only trust that we will all be alright till He calls us Home.

    Keep on keeping on. Be safe.

    • Hi Phyllis!

      Your “spirit” and “testimony” are a great inspiritation to many! The Lord is able to take care of His own when they are unable provide for themselves. Those who are able, but simply unwilling to do anything to prepare for the Dark Days ahead, is another thing entirely! May God grant you the peace and joy that you so richly deserve as we all face the times that “will try the hearts of men”…

      Gary a. k. a. Watchman33
