Storing food for the last times

                                                THANK YOU
                                                    GOD BLESS
Hello, Hilda and may Father bless as you study His Word.    There are many who expect to hoard much food and things for the time to come, but it is nearly impossible to save enough for more than a few weeks.  More on this in a minute, but lets think about debt first. 
It is wise to not allow the world to burden you with usury.  This is the thing that is hardest for most.  The reason debt is dangerous is that a person in debt is a slave to the owner of the debt.  The wise person would try to remove all such debt possible, by foregoing things in the present and paying the maximum possible to retire all debt.   When Satan comes, one of his tricks is to 'forgive' monetary debts owed by you to his children the bankers, but think about what accepting this would mean to your soul.   Try hard to get free of all credit card debt first, then things like your home and car. 
You ask, how to start?  It's simple.  Pray to Father, then do your part.  Put off all new purchases, and  if possible, double your payment on all debt.  Then, once out-- you will not need to go back.  
As for food-- This is something all should do,, but NO MORE than say a few weeks to 6 weeks max. worth of canned goods and stuff in the freezer.   Why not more?  Well, first, it spoils if you dont use it, and if the power goes off in a storm or trucker strike, you will not be able to go to a store.  Second, Jesus said the last days would be like the days of Noah.  Read that story carefully there in Genesis.
He said to Noah--- 
Gen 6:21-7:5
21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. (KJV)
Notice He said gather food?  Notice also He did not say how much.  Later on it is intimated that the flood would be for 40 days, so maybe he packed enough for forty days.    But you know something?  If you keep reading chapter seven, you will see that the food lasted him and all the animals and folks over a year, the total length of the flood.  How? well God obviously multiplied it so that it would.  It would have been virtually impossible for Noah to have taken enough food for that whole crew and the animals to last for a year.  Not enough room and of course no canned goods nor freezers. 
Lets take another example. Look at Elijah and the Widow of Zarepheth.

IKing 17:9-16
9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.
10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.
12 And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.
15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah. (KJV)
Here we have an example of someone having virtually no food, but who had faith and was willing to share what little there was. 
God will have no problem insuring the survival of His children with faith.  However, we have to do our part as well as we can, and sincerely.  We must sincerely try to come out of babylon, and believe.  He takes care of the rest.
God Bless,
