Tribulation Survival Guide

   Through the centuries, Bible scholars have looked at Jesus's Olivet Discourse as a catalogue of the signs of the End Times. But Jesus also gives us a list of DO's and DON'T's for us to follow if we wish to survive the Tribulation. Since the 70's pre-Trib salesmen have been leading believers to think, "we don't have to worry about it, we're not going to be here", and Christ's message has been largely ignored.
   Now, however, the time has come to take a fresh look at the Olivet Discourse; not now as merely a timeline of events, but as a manual for surviving the reign of the Anti-Christ! Look around! The Mark of the Beast is at the door and persecution such as this country has never seen will take many by surprise. Remember 1999? How many people prepared for the  Y2K bug scenario? Did you? That wasn't real (and I told my audience nothing would happen---sometimes Matt does know what he's talking about), but the Tribulation is real: the Bible doesn't lie. We do need to prepare.
   So let's see what Jesus instructed us in His Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21) the Tribulation Survival Guide!
DON'T go with those who say, "He's here!" Hello, Jehovah's Witnesses, it's 100 years since your leaders told you Christ returned  "invisibly". Still falling for this one?
DON'T panic when you turn on the news and see prophecy fulfilled before your eyes.
DO take heed you don't get deceived; question everything & everyone...false Christs are out there.
DON'T plan what you'll say when they come for you. DO let the Holy Ghost do the talkin'.
DO be prepared to die. Settle your hearts now; when they're banging down your door, it's too late.
DO run, Forrest, run! DON'T go back to pack your stuff! DO pray you won't have to escape in winter.
DO look up; your redemption is near! Can you last 3 1/2 years?
