Imagine if you will, what would happen if you pulled an American family from the 19th century, and plopped them in the middle of downtown Los Angeles during rush hour. They’re not given a warning, they’re not given any kind of primer on what they’re about to experience, and the occurrence is completely inexplicable. How long do you suppose they would last before they cried, uncle? Would they even survive? The odds probably aren’t so good.
Of course, the reverse is probably also true. If you and your family were wrenched from the comforts of the present and hurled back into a previous era, you might not fare so well either. Your survival odds would probably be a little better since you have hindsight and an understanding of germ theory. However, it would still be a pretty alien world for you. It would be littered with pitfalls that most modern people can’t even imagine.
6 TOTALLY INSANE THINGS THAT WILL HAPPEN IF OUR POWER GRID GOES DOWN
And that’s why it’s so important for everyone to prepare for the possibility that one day our grid could go down in a big way, whether it be from a terrorist attack, cyber attack, nuclear war, or solar flare. If our society suffered a widespread power failure that lasted for weeks or months, it would be no different for us than if we were suddenly sent back to the 1800s. It would be a strange and dangerous world, and for the average person, it would catch them off guard in the following ways:
- All commerce will cease. The ATMs won’t work, the banks won’t open, and the cash registers won’t…well, register. For a while, cash will be king, but if the crisis goes on for more than a few weeks, then people will view it as worthless. We’d be back to a barter economy in short order.
- Communications will shut down. If you think you can rely on your cell phone to work in a disaster, think again. In a crisis, when everyone instinctively reaches for their phone, that limit is quickly surpassed and the radios on the tower get sluggish, thus causing the fast-busy signal. Mobile analysts estimate that a cell site can handle 150 to 200 calls per second per sector. When a large group is making calls at the same time, the network can’t handle the number of calls. More importantly, communications with police, firefighters, and ambulance services will cease. Many of the workers in these positions will try to soldier on and keep doing the best job that they can for as long as they can. However, without ordinary citizens calling them to report crimes and emergencies, they’ll be helplessly watching their communities burn down around them. It won’t be long before they give up, ditch their posts, and return to their families.
- Without electricity, all forms of fuel that our society relies on will stop flowing. All of our vehicles will be dead in the water, and more importantly, the trucks will stop delivering food. The grocery stores will be stripped bare in hours, and will not be replenished for a long time. Even if you live in an area that is rich in agricultural resources, there may be no food to be had, since those farms rely on fertilizers and farming equipment that must be delivered by trucks.
- And of course, many of those farms will lack water, as will your plumbing. For a couple of days after the power goes out, you’ll still have running water since water towers rely on gravity to feed the water to your home. However, electricity is required to clean that water and pump it into the tower. Once it’s out, that means that you won’t be able to flush your toilet. So not only dehydration be a major threat, but without the ability to remove human waste or wash your hands, every community will face daunting sanitation problems.
- When the grocery stores are stripped bare, the pharmacies won’t be far behind. Millions of people who rely on life-saving medications could die in the weeks and months that follow. But perhaps more shocking is what would happen to the people who aren’t using drugs that are immediately life-saving. 13% of Americans are using opioid drugs, which are highly addictive and cause horrendous withdrawal symptoms. Another 13% of Americans are on antidepressants, and likewise, the withdrawal symptoms are pretty problematic. In other words, within a few weeks after the grid collapses, about 25% of your neighbors are going to be in an awful mental state that is not conducive for survival.
- And finally, one of the most shocking things that people will have to deal with, is the lack of GPS. The GPS satellites will probably keep running, but eventually, the devices that read those signals will give up the ghost. These days people are pretty reliant on GPS for directions, and there aren’t as many paper maps lying around. The average person is going to be utterly lost if the grid goes down.
In summary, law and order will break down at every level, and death will be around every corner. It’s one thing to grow up and live in an era that lacks electricity, but to be sent back to such a time on a moment’s notice would be one of the most challenging things that a person accustomed to modern amenities would ever face.
We will just move to the off grid cabin and NONE of those things will affect us.
Commerce will continue locally
Everyone has radio comms
Lots of fuel stocks
Many solar wells
Big stock of herbal medicines and seeds and meds
Piles of maps with compass
I am adding more solar so I can run my 2 refrigerators, chest freezer, air conditioner. Just adding more so I can run the a/c 🙂
Will have 1700+ watt array with 1680ah batteries. I figure that should do it…..
Without propane, you dont have hot water for the shower
easiest part of problem is thermal heat
Warm water over a fire ( or wood stove) take a sponge bath, or add in cold water for a minimal luke warm bath.
Nice set up, wish I was 2 or more decades younger and healthy enough to keep something like that going. That 1.7KW will give you about 15 amps or so at 120V. Watch the starting amps, leave that AC set at a low temp so the compressor doesn’t cycle off and on when you use it.
Yep let the grid go down for an extended time and its a trip to Flintstones Bedrock with a journey through 3rd world mayhem on the way there.
Hey Kev2 good to see you! I am only using a 5K btu window unit that is rated at 400 watts so I think it will be ok. The 5cf freezer uses 1 amp the 2 fridges combined are about 300 watts. At night the only things running are 1 fridge and lights etc. I keep my beer fridge freezer part full of the blue ice packs that freeze all day and keep my beer and excess food cold well into the next day. Same goes with the freezer. I shut down all but the main fridge when I use the vaccum. Party on Kev!
Look into low frequency inverters. A bit more money and heavier, but can handle motor startups and inductive loads better.
hey there. if you haven’t used solar on a daily basis before be sure to over-calculate the number of panels. we’ve been running on solar for 20+ years, and on overcast days it drops to +/- 1/2! rainy days with heavy clouds are worse. we expanded the array substantially after the first year of keeping records. we-re at 5kw solar and 2 kw wind. need it to run the dehumidifiers, fridgs, freezers.
My understanding is that solar panels would also be affected……anyone?
Solar panels will be affected if they are attached to the power grid
With an EMP, anything electrical/electronic that is not hardened or protected with a Faraday cage will be useless. The solar panels themselves might be fine, but the inverter that changes DC to AC would be destroyed. Full disclosure: I’m a senior electrical/electronic engineer with a decade of experience with HIRF and EMI in military and commercial avionics.
That’s correct. Anything electrical/electronic that is not EMP hardened or in a Faraday cage will be useless. The solar panels will be fine. The DC to AC converters attached to the solar panels will be inoperable (without protection). Full disclosure: I’m an electrical/electronic engineer with two decades of experience with EMI and HIRF experience in industrial applications, consumer and payment terminal electronics, and military and commercial avionics.
Hey G, I’ve been running 1200 Watts that keeps my Tiny house shed conversion running. Been using the same led acid batteries now for over 6 years, but starting to see the sitting voltage now not holding as much charge. Replacement is just over $1000. So looking at getting more as back up.. They are 6V x 8 batteries. I series 2 together to make 12V then parallel to create the 4x 12V battery bank. I see an EMP coming out of no where and there are some EMP surge protectors that can be attached to battery banks on solar and vehicles. Something to consider. About $350 each. Go to EMPShield dot com products selection. For vehicles and solar systems. 3 wires connect to the battery bank. simple install. Pos/ neg/ ground
Dont worry about the batts during an EMP. Protect you charge contoller. The panels mat take it but the panels will pick up the surge and send it right to the charge controller. buy a direct replacement spare.
TSB (and others), You will get much longer life from your battery bank if you use a BLS desulphator! I have been using one since 07 and it WORKS! It is a multi-frequency desulphator that disolves lead sulphate back into liquid. The main cause of battery failure is sulphate buildup. If you equalize your batteries it sheds the sulphate crystals along with a small amount of lead from your plates and it falls into the bottom of the battery case. Over time it builds up and shorts out the cells, ruining your battery not to mention the sulphate buildup on the plates degrades the performance. Don’t buy just any unit get the best one (batterylifesaver dot com). For less than the price of 1 battery it can double the life of your bank and keep performance at peak. My current bank is 7 years old and performs like new and I NEVER equalize. I expect them to last 12-14 years. Stratification is another issue most people never address. When batteries sit stationary for long periods of time the electrolyte starts to separate (acid from water) this degrades performance and shortens life too. About every 9 months or so shake your batteries up good or get a turkey baster and suck up the electrolyte and squeeze it back down into the cells with decent force. Basically swishing it around the cells and remixing it.
As far as emp the only electronic component in most panels is a diode. Get some spares they are cheap. A lightning arrestor might work for keeping it from going down the wires into your system. Ground your array and equipment well! Have backup equipment (charge controller, inverter) in a protected place. A lightning arrestor has 3 wires too same as the emp shield in fact I bet it’s the same thing.
Anyway if you follow what I posted you should easily double your battery life and get top performance! CHEERS!
Oh and 1 more thing. Don’t buy trojan batteries! Every trojan bank I have ever seen has failed prematurely! The best battery for your $$ is US Battery by far! They cost the same as others but are way better and longest life.
When it comes to lead acid batteries, Rolls are the best. 20 year life span. We have 12, 2 volt, 1350 amp batteries. Two 4000 watt sine wave inverters. We live off the grid full time.
LeFiPo batteries are still too expensive

You can skip to the 45 Min mark to get to the details. Crazy..
Your trust must be in Jesus during these times, not your preps. Believe that every conceivable catastrophe will emerge simultaneously so that you are overwhelmed. That is the core plot`n` plan TPTB have been doing for a century. Structural, institutional and social fault lines have been engineered into the core processes. Factor in environmental problems, how well will you do under 8″ hail? or an arkstorm that dumps 35″ of rain on you in 6 hours. Or a cold front that drops the temp 120 degrees in 15 minutes. Or you get unending drought and your water table becomes corrupted from seismic disturbances. All these things mentioned will be common occurrences from rekt weather patterns.
You’ll be hunted down and murdered for what you have lol
damn, genius, i see you and a couple others are still here from the old days. it’s good to see that others are carrying the torch still. i think i will get back here and start reading/commenting again. i’m about to build in arizona so i can extricate myself crom cattlepornia. i probly gotta build a solar system, so am reading what yall are saying here…..still miss eppe……who was that guy that drove him to have his heart attack? been too long, i forgot his monicker/name…
Ok there are plenty of folks who know where your at. Satelites and drones make it easy. Everyone and his brother will come after your solar and whatever you might have. Think you can defend it? is you cabin bullet proof. Is is fire proof. Even the Crusaders castles where eventually breached.
“Commerce will continue locally”
Try it, while times are still fairly easy.
There is only one thing that will happen that Matters
YOU WILL DIE!!
Preppers will last a little longer – but will also die.
Killed by someone else
Sickness w/o meds – How many fish Omoxcillian can you have.
Wild animals will be all hunted out
Everyone dies. The trick is raising a new generation in the time you have while alive and hopefully fertile.
If you need medicine without pharma I suggest you look into Herbal alternatives, Esp. wild plants and minerals available in your region…no it’s not as good as ABX, but it might keep you alive long enough to pass on your genes and knowledge.
People survived long before modern Medicine, and they will ( or some will) survive after.
Hummm… just curious oh mighty prepared one… what ARE you going to do when the swat team shows up at your cabin and confiscates everything you have “for the good of all”? You see, in your smugness you’ve failed to realize no one will be immune to total confiscation. Yes, it may take them a little while to get to you, but rest assured, they’ll be there at 4:00am one morning. It’s sad, but you won’t know what hit you.
You left out a few important things… such as nuke plants melting down. Read this article: https://allnewspipeline.com/The_World_After_The_Great_Culling.php
Read the 3 book series starting with One Second After.See what happens to America after it is hit with three EMP’S.It didn’t turn out to good
I welcome the challenge. At least for 6 – 9 months, really clean out the cities and the roaches.
GPS? No gas and GPS is brought up? Hmm…
Get a Gazetteer for your state/area and anywhere you think you might be going with mobs everywhere since they’ll be no water or gas, I’m sure your travel plans will work out just fine.
Food will be the #1 issue (includes water). We’ve survived for 1000’s of years pre moving electron’s, we can do it again.
Maybe Uncle Xi or Putin will pop an EMP just before the pagan holiday on 12/25. Long cold winter with the GSM and no power, DEFINITELY clean up the crap.
I understand one type of fuel which doesn’t require electricity to make it is kerosene, so a kerosene stove and lantern could be useful. People have reportedly been making it for centuries.
hey there. if you haven’t used solar on a daily basis before be sure to over-calculate the number of panels. we’ve been running on solar for 20+ years, and on overcast days it drops to +/- 1/2! rainy days with heavy clouds are worse. we expanded the array substantially after the first year of keeping records. 8kw solar and 2 kw wind did it for us.
no power means NO WATER.
You can not live more than 4 or 5 days without water.
And if you drink water from a stream, ditch, pond, swimming pool that is untreated you will get deathly ill.
What you will need is a water filter.
See them at: http://www.TonyLamb.org
You have failed to mention the 7th, and “most insane”, occurrence after a systemic power grid failure. NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST. When the lights, go down, in the city… We will experience cascading nuclear power plant failures/meltdown/deflagration/open air nuclear volcanoes spewing hissing smoldering invisible DEATH for one and all, right down to the very last amoeba. Yuck it up out there in the remote cabin, “the best laid plans – of mice and men”. Believe you me, your getaway cabin isn’t remote enough (unless it’s on Mars)!!! See ya there! BYOB.
No meltdown at a nuke plant. They have redundancy for water supply with diesel backup pumps and steam turbines which supply water as long as steam is generated. As the enthalpy decays so does the pressure in the vessel. The turbine driven pump is a force multiplier which will always supply water at a greater pressure than what is in the vessel. Put it all under multiple feet of water like in Japan and all bets are off.
Nuke plants only keep a 30 day supply of diesel fuel as a backup to keep the cooling system running. So if you live down wind of a Nuke Plant you got less than 30 days to get the heck out of the area. Always know the wind direction and where you are from nuke plants. Go here to see the Map. radiationnetwork dot com find your area. this map updates every minute. so you can see where the current threats are. When the entire grid crashed, expect a 90% die off. Mostly the unprepared. Your prepper goal is to out survive the other 90%, out live, out mart, and out last and hustle more than the rest. Having preps in place now you are already 80% ahead of this game. Its a planned killing field. Ready Go. Get Off their dependent Grids now and far away from mass population centers. That where most will die.
You are spot on! Within one year upwards of 90% of population will be gone. The unprepared, medical dependents, drug addicts,etc. With no boundaries of law the entire system will cave into utter chaos of survival. Taking the steps now are important as once it happens there will be no time or resources to do anything but go into survival mode.
We live in regions of the Country that experience extreme weather with no local access to water, so there is little chance of survival for the majority when the taps go dry.
The nuke plant will be #1 on the diesel allocation priority list and furthermore the steam turbine powered water pumps (Boiler Feed Pumps in fossil jargon) will run as I previously described for cool down. They have significant defense in depth. The collateral impact however will, outside of the nuke plants, be so massive as to put a completely unprepared (in skill, mindset and logistics) public in life threatening danger on mass scale.
Yes plants have diesel back up, but what id the generatiors suffer a malfunction or break down?
What if they genny does not fire up?
“The nuclear plant a t Fukushima, was well under the tolerance Fukushima was supposed to handle.
All the emergency Diesel generators failed. Same used by all the plants– most are old cruise ship engines. They are supposed to snap on when there’s an accident. But cruise ships warm up their engines for h ours before torquing. So, when the Nuclear plants need the power, they have 12 seconds to fire up. So they fail. They know they will fail. They are like Xmas decorations.”
I am not saying they will ALL fail or break down…but it takes to properly cool fuel rods, and then they need years in cooling tanks before dry cask storage…
So I suppose 10% ( a wild guess, but likely and under-estimate!) will ( eventually) melt down, causing a Chernobyl / Fukushima Daiichi Like event. In the Fukushima event, I remember reading the generators were in the basement, and they were flooded…or at least that is the excuse…
With over 100 nuclear reactor sites ( many with multiple reactors on them) the one question you have to ask yourself is “do you feel lucky punk?” 😉
Fukushima was submerged under water. Nothing could work, period. The turbines powering the auxiliary coolant pumps will work as I explained previously. TMI had an interesting issue where the level indicator read false high. I seen it happen in a fossil plant. This is why you have human control to override as Eugene Krantz said in Apollo 13, “They have bangs and shimmies, don’t sound like instrumentation to me”. Now toss in human error and all bets are off.
Yes I stated the excuse was the generators were in the flooded basement…not sure i buy it…
Just why could not a maritime nation like Japan get a ship ( military or otherwise) to run a cable to the seaside plant? Airlift a few massive generators? Why did they run Sea water in the pipes as a last ditch attempt to cool the plant and ruin the cooling pipes? Fukushima was messed up beyond repair, but the effort to cool the plant was half harted IMHO. They had a few days to get their act together, but could not…
Why do you think it would be better in the USA?
OK just to answer a few questions I asked on Fukushima:
So it seems the generators being swamped were not the issue, old cracked pipes with quake damage made circulating water impossible…and the seawater solution was brought in too late, operators abandend their posts, etc.
Still think .gov is going to keep all those plants cooling in an EMP attack? Your welcome to be an Optimist, but I still think a 10% failure rate is more than generous. Factor in the chaos that would ensue ( rioting, looting) and worse yet the actual attack that would come after the EMP…
The integrity of all EDGs is not guaranteed. Neither is the competence of civilian operators during a major LOOP event. And particularly during a series of mass multiple LOOP events stretching across entire regions. Studies of major LOOP events have consistently shown that ‘human error’ is the decisive factor in pretty much all cases. Let’s hope that politically expedient management hires and serious outages in transgender toilet facilities don’t impede the cold shutdown process.
Oh by the way I don’t mean to denigrate anyone that is preparing/prepared, to weather the storm that is upon us, however, a very likely result of grid down will lead to what I just described (very briefly) above. In fact, it’s quite likely the occurence in Fukushima, Japan has in fact already sealed our fate. Truly sad that so many (now billions) of people sit on their hands and allow themselves (to the detriment of their children and grandchildren) to be led around like little children themselves by the treacherous, lecherous, lower than whale shit likes of dr. fucki, pelousy, masturgates, dianne stickyfingerfuckstainstein, and the banksters of all description. These COLOSSAL TURDS need to be put where TURDS belong; even a dog knows to bury its own TURD!!
This is link to a free documentary “after the Apocalypse” about Kazakhstan’s Soviet era Nuclear Experiments on Humans…
In short many die young, many are malformed, many never make it out of the womb….BUT life goes on…
I don’t think Fukushima will be an ELE, but it has already done serious harm, and will continue to do so for the future, as humans animals and plants Uptake the radioactive isotopes.
To those concerned about Nuclear war between the USA, China and or Russia…you are invited to join me in the southern hemisphere, where our radiation shortened lives will go on…even after the real coming apocalypse.
I say this as someone who homesteaded with Solar power in Florida, with no Air conditioning unless a generator was run…someone who knows how to grow food and had a small orchard / vinyard ( Pecans, Muscadines, figs, Olives, Peaches etc.)
What time is it boys and girls? Bury the TURDS time. RUPSUP – round’m up, string’m up. My Acronym RUPSUP is copywritten.
All commerce will not cease. The barter system will continue, and black markets will develop quickly. Prepare to have barter items so you can eat.
The “paradox of thrift” is that you can only bargain and scrimp so hard, before your product shrinks, and nobody is getting paid. Barter does not work, as a matter of human nature.
You will never get spot price for precious metals in the free market. Your homegrown vegetables and yard sale items will never be valuable.
Up until teotwaki, authoritatians in some ceremonial position of power acted as market makers, to tell the little people to put one foot in front of the other.
“In other words, within a few weeks after the grid collapses, about 25% of your neighbors are going to be in an awful mental state that is not conducive for survival.”
I grew up with what were then called Building Projects. (Trump called them Opportunity Zones.) Right next door. A blonde-haired, blue-eyed doll would be recovered (repeatedly) with Nation of Islam-sounding names written on it.
Within the amount of time it took for a Summer brown out, you could hear the grocery store glass breaking — twice, in one night.
“And of course, many of those farms will lack water, as will your plumbing.”
Lenders are giving them preferences on farmland, while denying that it’s for sale.
“it would be no different for us than if we were suddenly sent back to the 1800s.”
Between the Age of Discovery and Industrial Revolution. That took thousands of years, since the last ELE.
Original Land of the Lost themes:
Consider, very carefully, the first peopling of the continents.
Snarky but still contrite, here. If religion is meaningful to you, I highly suggest a systematic, utilitarian approach.
The terror of the addicts and the death of the insulin dependant will be terrible, just to name a few. Nine meals until total collapse.
what happens when the nuclear power stations go tits up?
None here – yet – that I’ve read has spoke to the worst danger that a grid down scenario produces…a Wolf-Pack of crazed starving people looking for anything they can which feed themselves.
Personally, I’d rather face a pack of Tyranasaurus Rex – NAKED – as face a starving pack of Humans…I’ll out-think the former, the latter, well the odds ain’t as high…
Whats wrong? Y’all scared to die or something?
” That took thousands of years, since the last ELE ” Extinction level event
We are in the beginning stages of a Magnetic pole shift. Even if its a worst case reversal. Its an end of an age event. No matter what many will perish. However humans will not become extinct.
Thank you, finally an intelligent statement…
I am able to do several 1800’s skills, on a full stomach and good night’s sleep, but find it challenging, physically and mentally. Unless I was the foreman, it would be prematurely-aging, and I would have lived a full life of hardship, by now.
Most of my classmates from highschool did not remain active, over Summer break, and could not read a measuring tape.
We are not going to back to that.
This is a good article. It lists some really valid concerns. And I was even impressed with the readers’ comments. They did not degenerate into name-calling as so often happens. You might want to check out the Non-Electric Lighting Series of books on Amazon. (Written by yours truly.) Available in paper format as well as Kindle. There are 8 books in the series but no doubt Book 2, “Olive Oil Lamps &c.” will be the most useful in an emergency situation. Here’s a link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KB7F9SU/ref=series_rw_dp_sw
Bring it on, I’m ready to see these sissies who talk a good game screaming and wailing over it all.
Grid down ~ no cooling… All 100+ nuke plants in the US melt down. Much of the country dies in the time it takes someone to drink a case of Scotch.
So much for prepping.
Kevin2 and I are having a spirited conversation about this issue, some posts above yours…I don’t think they will ALL fail right away…but given the chaos I am giving My government (USA) a 90% success rate…presuming the EMP is not a prelude to WWIII.
A 10% Meltdown rate would still be a disaster. Let’s hope that never happens…
We’re all in this together…
Ok it will not revert to a 1800,s lifestyle. We don’t have the 1800,s infrastructure. Those solar panels are a big billboard and everyone will be after your stuff. Even the local government officals will want to robb you. Nope we will skyrocket to a stone age existence. They claim world wide 90% will die. Those their worlders who don’t have electric will starve because the USA and other crop growing places feed them. Barter will be dangerious. Why trade for your stuff when if its SHTF WROL I can kill you and simply take everything you have.
OG – you are right. In fact, a general loss of electrical power for an extended time would be worse than one can presently imagine. The consequences after a few weeks (if that long) would be no fuel, no food, no medical care or pharmaceuticals, and no police for starters. Even no running water or flushing toilets will unravel a lot of people. Since most young people can’t take their eyes off their cell phones, when cell phones stop working they will have emotional and psychological meltdowns, and won’t be good for anything. Most neighbors by then will lose all neighborly cordiality and not give you any peace, to say the least. In urban areas since gangs already exist they will see it as an opportunity to live their 3rd world fantasies; they will be able to rob, kill, abduct, torture, and rape with impunity.
The only ways to get through it all is either bug out to a remote location, but that option is available to only a few because 95% don’t have survival skills. Or, if one stays put, they better be part of a group who is well prepped and possesses a variety of skills, including security. Truth is, except for the extremely wealthy, who had the foresight and knowledge to prep (some will go to islands, some have fortresses, some to remote hidden underground bunkers, etc.) life wouldn’t be safe for anyone.
After a few months, all pretense of civilization is gone, killing will be how one gets anything. There would only be small groups or marauder gangs that are intact, and even those gangs will turn on each other. A close friend, who is a prepper, has a neighbor who has noticed he is a prepper. He commented if SHTF happens he and his friends will just come over a take what they want. I saw that as a good piece of intel. I know people like him, they will just take what they want. The word is out about people like him though, good guys will just preemptively take out many of them so as to not be a problem later.
Of all the possible scenarios, general loss of electricity for a long period would likely be the worse. Today, every facet of totally life depends on it. If others can add to to what life may be like, and have ideas how to cope in this scenario please comment.
I’m worried that the eletes could suffer.
You say, I got a crack in my windshield…
So glad that #2 made it back safely on AF2.
Permanet Grid Down is something ive researched and thought a lot about. We actually do not have a political , race or religion problem. There isn’t now and never will be any viable political or ballot box solution. We will bever vote our way out of the mess. Because the actual problem is far too many Parasite Takers and Far too few Producing Makers. That situation is never long term sustainable. Only a great culling will rectify the imbalance. Its possible the Elete plan to kill the grid. And themselves hole up in their bunkers at places like Mt Weather. If so we need to do something to make certain they never emerge. Those bunkers need to become their toombs. As for preps and survival. A live on sail boat might be viable? Possibly a house boat if you are near a expanse of water. Almost every Native American tribe was subdued and killed or placed on Reservations. Except for the Seminole They never left that Swamp. the Army couldn’t touch them.
I enjoy Red Lobster.
I’ve thought about a lot of scenarios and we won’t really know until it actually happens. But it seems like security might high in priorities. I don’t really think bugging out will help. There will be too many obstacles on the journey. Have to protect your homestead. Tv show Revolution was pretty amazing. Was on Netflix for a while, wish it would come back….
We’ll probably blame Putin.
It’s false to say now that 13% of people are on opioids now that article was from 13. Prescription opioids are down over 40% from their peak in 2011. Opioids are not highly addictive, most studies show less than 1% much lower than alcohol. Prescription opioid ODs are also quite rare; most are from illicit fentanyl. The CDC inflated the prescription opioid deaths by mis- categorizing illicit fentanyl deaths as prescription opioid deaths.
between day 9 and 14, if no fuel, all nuclear plants go full meltdown, as they run out of diesel
Not going to get you. It’s the fire that will kill most of you. Babylon has to burn. Then the ensuing radioactive showers will finish the rest of you off. Bible clearly spells out that you will burn for not heeding his words. My people flee her! Gods wrath is soon to come unto you. You might have not been the cause, but you live in the middle of all of it and refuse to get out!
Read One Second After – it does a great job of describing the world after…
I want to share a message that has been spreading all over the internet that concerns the times we are living in. Whether you believe in God or not, this is a must read message!
We can see throughout time how we have been slowly conditioned to come to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Would it surprise you to know that the Bible foretold of this event? Don’t believe me? This may be the most imporant message you will read in these times…please do not ignore this!
This messsage reveals what the Mark of the Beast is, and the meaning behind counting a number people have been pondering for centuries, 666. This message also shares why Barack Obama is the Antichrist. This is truly a message from God!
In the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to the apostle John, we read:
“He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).
Referring to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Why? Revelation 13:17 tells us that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast in our right-hand or forehead. We could still buy or sell among one another without receiving the mark if physical money was still currency. It logically deduces itself to this reason.
These verses could not be referring to something spiritual because the word references two different physical locations (our right-hand or forehead) stating the mark will be on one “OR” the other. It once again logically deduces itself to this reason.
Here is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning the RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this microchip in the late 1960’s.
“Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about a one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).
Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.
Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.
Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this refers to a hypodermic needle (see photo).
Mr. Sanders asked a Boston Medical Center doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor responded that if the microchip broke inside a human body, the lithium would cause a severe and painful wound filled with pus. This is what the book of Revelation says:
“And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).
THE HIDDEN MEANING BEHIND THE NUMBER 666 REVEALED!
What I first want to mention, before I share what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me concerning the number of the beast, is that God confirms in threes. We can see this throughout scripture:
“For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).
“and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).
“…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).
There are many more examples, but I thought I would just share three of them to make the point.
Examining Revelation 13:16,17,18, the first group of three I would like to point out is that the mark of the beast is described in three separate verses, 16, 17 and 18.
The next three I see is in verse 16, “He causes all…” is followed by three contrasting categories of people,
1 – “both small and great,
2 – rich and poor,
3 – free and slave…”.
Then unto verse 17, it opens with, “and that no one may buy or sell except one who has…”, followed by three explanations of what one must have to buy or sell,
1 – “…the mark
2 – or the name of the beast,
3 – or the number of his name”.
Now unto verse 18, we read “Let him who has understanding calculate…”, which is followed by,
1 – “the number of the beast,
2 – for it is the number of a man:
3 – His number is 666”.
The last three I see is the number “6” being used three times in a row. The reason I’m making this point about God confirming in three is because it is the key to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.
Throughout the centuries there have been people trying to calculate numbers based on titles and names that come up to the number 666 to identify one person, the Antichrist; but from Revelation 13:18, I do not see where God is telling us to count up to 666, but rather to count the number of the beast. This number is identified as 666. So the verse is telling us to count the number 666.
What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes is key to unlocking the number 666. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally by using the rule of three based off the number.
We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start.
We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60 because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666.
The only logical option is 6+6+6=18.
What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18 (there a total of 18 verses in Revelation Chapter 13), being the third verse out of the three verses that describe the mark of the beast in Revelation 13:16,17,18. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.
Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between 666 are:
66+6=72 and 6+66=72.
Add both 72’s together and you get 144.
Why the number 144 is worth our attention is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:
“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).
Now if you add up all three numbers from counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is compelling about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was originally written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.
Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply the same formula that was used to count 666, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits.
Now if you take:
you get 24+96+96=216.
Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666.
Remember that this was the same exact formula we used to count the number 666 that ultimately brought forth the number 888.
Here is a quick recap to demonstrate how this formula confirms itself as being the true way to count 666:
1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72 > 6+66=72 > 18+72+72=162
2: 144,000 divided by 162=888
3: 8+8+8=24 > 88+8=96 > 8+88=96 > 24+96+96=216
4: 144,000 divided by 216=666
1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72…
As you can see, it is perpetual. And remember that we consistently used a formula that worked in threes being the number that God uses for confirmation.
So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license; being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters (6+6+6).
“here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for “of human” it is, and the number of it 666″ (Revelation 13:1, Greek Translation).
The Greek word “anthrōpos” being used in verse 18 where it says “of human” is the Greek strongs concordance G444. The first two definitions of the word are “a human being, whether male or female”, and, “generically, to include all human individuals”. Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind?
In the Greek (the New Testament was originally written in the Greek language), and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an “it”, instead of “him”. The reason I’m making this point is because when a translation says “His number is 666”, this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying “the number of it 666”, implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.
We can know the number of the beast cannot be to identify products (like a new barcode) to buy or sell because scripture says we cannot buy or sell without the number of the beast. What am I getting at? There will be instances where you could buy something someone made themselves and it wouldn’t have a store branded identification on it. But for this number to be in our chips, that is where it must be to conclude ultimately that we cannot buy or sell without having the number of the beast. As previously mentioned in Revelation 13:18, the number of the beast (6+6+6=18) is a “human number”, definition “generically, to include all human individuals”.
“Why did the Biden campaign choose 30330? 2020 divided by 666 = 3.0330 Who believes this to be a coincidence? October 2020 Isaiah 53:6 Someone said we are being whipsawed in 2020. Truly a great division is taking place between good and evil—both symbolically and literally (riots, unrest, politics). If you take the current year 2020 and divide it by the number 666 (known for its satanic implications) you will get the number 30330 (repeated). This number 30330 happens to be the number used to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Freaky? Supernatural? Odd for sure. Whatever this means, it doesn’t seem good to me. First, why would anyone knowingly choose those particular numbers for their campaign? If they weren’t knowingly chosen, then it appears to be a supernatural act by the evil one himself and I would want to change those numbers ASAP. And if the numbers were chosen knowing their significance, are you satanic? Is this campaign satanic? Either way I do not believe this is a coincidence. And one thing is certain, 2020 is truly being divided by Satan. He is the master deceiver and spreader of chaos. Jesus calls him the father of lies.”
So I looked up this number 30330 concerning Joe Biden, and I found this information:
If you send a text to that number (at that time), you would get a response asking to support Joe’s campaign to take down Donald Trump, with one part in caps saying “CHIP IN >>” pointing to a link to go and donate.
“CHIP IN”? Obama has used this phrase in the past on his twitter and people believe it is a subliminal message to receive the mark of the beast, that is to say the implantable RFID microCHIP that will go IN our body.

Is your name written in the Lamb’s book of life? Jesus says that we must be born again to enter the kingdom of God in the Gospel of John chapter 3.
“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).
BARACK OBAMA IS THE ANTICHRIST:
In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.
He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…
“In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama
…but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.
So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…
“And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).
In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.
Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning
baraq – Biblical definition:
From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)
Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.
bamah – Biblical definition:
From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)
The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.
Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.
These are just a few of many evidences why Barack Obama is the Antichrist. You can see many more in my article on the website above, as well as read about the dreams I’ve had concerning this man. I’m more than convinced that God has shown me that he is without a doubt the Antichrist, and we will see him rise to power in the not so dinstant future.
Jesus stands alone among the other religions who say to rightly weigh the scales of good and evil, and to make sure you have done more good than bad in this life. Is this how we conduct ourselves justly in a court of law? Bearing the image of God, is this how we project this image into our reality?
Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good that we have done, but rather the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?
God has brought down His moral law’s through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Sinai. These laws were not given so we may be justified, rather that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.
We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill; even bringing the law to it’s truest light by stating, “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:27-28).
The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays our fine, even though we are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let us go free. That is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood.
Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unnoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it must be quenched, it must be satisfied.
For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.
This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son whose soul could not be left in Hades, but was raised to life on the third day and seated at the right hand of God in power.
So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer sees the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.
Now what we must do is repent and put our trust and faith in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart, so that we may truly be transformed into the image of God. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness through faith in Him.
Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again'” (John 3:5-7).
Come before the Lord with a contrite spirit, humble yourself, ask Him for His forgiveness, to receive the free gift of His salvation, to receive His Holy Spirit, so that you may be transformed into a new creature, into a child of the living God.
There is a reason why the words of Jesus have been translated in to over 2000 languages, and nothing comes remotely close (the Quran just over 100), because there is a God in heaven who desires to have a relationship with you, to know Him through His word, as that is how we personally get to know anybody. There is a reason why it is the year 2021, because Jesus came to earth just over 2000 years ago fulfilling major prophecy causing a divide in our timeline.
Jesus loves you! Seek Him while He may be found! We must repent and turn from practicing sin…for if we are not following Jesus, we are following the devil. There is no neatural ground. We are either living in the lie, or the truth. God bless you!
