Survivability For The Christian Is Our Goal!

Survivability for the Christian” is my attempt to better help prepare the Body of Christ for the turbulent days ahead. Information is power, and while some of this information is 50 to 100 years old, it has no less value. Imagine for a moment… if you could get a library of books completely free, containing some of the knowledge gathered over the last 5800 years? How much would that be worth to a group of people relearning how to do things the old way? This information is priceless for many reasons, chief of which, what it could mean to you and your family if you every needed it. I pray you never will. I also pray that wisdom will guide you to download what can be gained for free, for a time the cost of which would be priceless.


Disclaimer: “Survivability for the Christian”-use at your own discretion. You accept any and all liability upon yourself by downloading, reading, and applying any of the following information. Seek advice from experts to address any concerns or questions.  

I attempted to break “Survivability for the Christian” into general groups to better help you find what you need. If it was me, I would just download it all. It’s free, so act like it, and take all you want. Please share this information and this webpage to help other brothers and sisters in Christ. God Bless You as You Prepare!

-By faith build an Ark for your family!-

“By faith Noah, having been warned by God of things not yet seen, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.” (Hebrews 11:7)

“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially his family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)
