End Times. Tribulation. Self Defense. Food & Water. Shelter.
Different Christian denominations and individuals have varying beliefs about the tribulation and the events surrounding it. Some Christians believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, while others believe in a post-tribulation rapture, mid-tribulation rapture, or do not believe in a rapture at all. Here at Rhema, believe in both the tribulation as well as what is called "The Dark Days of Chastisement", which will happen before mankind even makes it to the last 7 years!

Some common reasons why we prep:
- Faithfulness and obedience: Preparing for the tribulation is not just good stewardship, it is an act of faithfulness and obedience to God. Many biblical passages indicate that believers should be spiritually and morally prepared for the challenges that will come during the tribulation period.
- End times readiness: Things will get darker before the return of Jesus, that much we all know for sure. Preparing for the worst and praying for the best is a good way to be spiritually and emotionally ready for the events prophesied in the Bible.
- Perseverance and endurance: At Rhema, we know that the future will be a time of intense persecution and hardship for believers. As a result, we may feel it's important to prepare spiritually, emotionally, and even practically to endure such difficult times.
- Helping others: It is important to help others. Being prepared, spiritually and physically, to offer support and assistance to those in need is essential. This not only changes their lives, it changes regions for God.
