Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

        Food & Water

        I am looking to stock up some long term food storage. Obviously, canned goods are on my list.

        I was wondering if anyone might have any additional suggestions for my shopping list.

        Are individual sized water bottles best, or does large container storage make more sense?

        Basically, any suggestions on what we might need on hand for a disaster situation.

        Thanks for your input.

            Stored water is probably not going to stay fresh, better to learn to purify water. Dried beans, lentils and peas last nearly indefinitely if kept dry, oatmeal might too as long as its tightly sealed. I have a good hurricane oil lamp with a tall rather than round base (makes it easy to carry around) and extra lamp oil.

                    Start Preparing???

                    Just some thoughts that have been on my heart.

                    I have a growing sense that it would be wise to be well prepared for the times ahead. Nobody knows for sure what the church will have to endure before the tribulation and rapture.

                    Have you all made preparations for a situation like we have seen in Haiti?

                    Is this foolish?

                      Preparedness is smart in most situations, but if you think its possible to prepare for the End, a time when you most likely wont be here... well you may be biting off more than you can chew.

                      Believers will be 100% in G-ds hands. He will insure them in everyway. Considering it will be a time of mass chaos, you're stock of supplies may be pilfered or even destroyed in the process.

                      If you want to insure their survival personally. Keep a Bible fully accessable at all times on your physical person. Rapture, and boom theres a Bible in your pile of clothes. Thats all they will need is the 60+book loveletter from the L-rd.

                        Well, if the rapture is soon, but it get's to be like Haiti, I think you could prepare in such a way to insure that you actually live till the rapture.

                          SPYDYR,

                          Just out of curiosity, would you please explain why you've chosen to type our Savior's name with missing letters? [respectfully bold-ed above by me, for clarification purposes] I'm not very talented with technology, therefore I wasn't sure if you wrote God's Name like that for a specific purpose ]

                          I'll appreciate your response.

                          -Mish

                            Preparing for a tempory shut down of the economic system

                            In stocking goods most grocery stores use just in time stocking. Reason is having inventory on shelves is costly. Reasonable approach is first water. Saving water in enough quality is problematic. A more important issue is how to collect and purify water. Some ways filtering or boiling. Food has some problems, what if you lose refrigeration? Dried or can foods could serve. What about long term food supply? The only answer is grains and there proper storeage. Example in the Bible is Joseph and his storing grain. Grains can still be obtained resonably at a grainary in fifty or hundred pound bags. Fuel, gasoline spoils easlily diesel last a long time most people. On farms they have large propane tanks or heating oil tanks. Being able to hunt or fish is very important and to have the gear and know how to use it.
                            A word about the politically incorrect word of hoarding. If everyone has a chance to stockpile supplies instead of buying Iphones for all your family or any other thing you choose to do that is just your personal priorities. If there is a shortage and the populace has limited excess and you have an unfair way of gaining those items, that is hoarding.
                            Now the most important part. If there is a way to help people in a time of need there ears are especially tender to the gospel. Do you have some means of passing out the word. My three favorite items to have as handouts. 1. Juan the book of John(NIV) in Spanish $.79. 2. The Hope book(NKJV) $1.33 new testament. 3. Bread Of Life(NKJC) Book of John $.99. These prices were good several months ago at Christianbooks on line, if you buy 10 or more.
                            This isn't a complete guide nor is it advocating doing any of this. If you do any of this you need to outline your goals and how you would respond. Probably the other readers could add many more tips. Most of what I expressed I learned in the US Army 1965-1968.

                              One trick I learned about saving water for long periods is to fill the bottle completely, then cap. Do not allow any air to remain in the bottle. If all air is removed, the water will not taste nasty after a few months. Avoid storing the bottles near sunlight - a garage or closet does fine.
                              We often buy those large gallon jugs of cranberry juice at Costco and use them for water, instead of throwing away. Be sure to mark on the bottle the date you bottled the water.. that way you use the oldest water first.
