We are all prepared so we can accept it with open arms when the pronouncement is made.
Tools of preparation :escalating conflict, food shortage, decline in natural resources, coming together of world religions, coming together of sovereign nations (Unions of countries),
changing of Biblical laws, distractions of Hollywood. The Bible says, spiritual things are spiritually discerned. Romans 8:5
If you don't see it coming then you are not prepared . If you see it coming, you may be prepared.
If you see it coming and you have faith in Christ, you will be prepared. At that time desire(appetite) shall fail. No more desire for parties, binges, nice rides, and blinging. The desire for lust shall cease, all desires for luxuries shall be gone. A time is coming that except you be in the protection of Christ, except you have practiced and tested your dependence on God in the past, you will not stand in the day of great tribulation. Daniel 12:1 "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book."
It has happen before Deut 28:56-58, this time it will be worse.
