  1. Be practically prepared to stay faithful to God even under intense persecution and suffering: Financial assets in kind, Knowledge and skills on survival, Lifestyle adjustments now, Most critical items, Other things
  1. Be more excited than afraid to go through the coming troubles knowing that they are “birth pains” that will give way to the “baby” of the perfect kingdom of God on earth (Romans 8:18-25; Philippians 3:20-21; Revelation 11:15-18)
