If the Grid Goes Down: What Will Happen?
Many of you watched the Pray With America’s Leaders webcast on the Electric Grid. It was surprising to hear the many and varied threats to the grid, and what little is being done to harden it. Our title of the webcast “30 Hours is all we have if the grid goes down” was taken from a conversation with an expert who described how quickly our nation would come to a halt if electricity was not available. We share these things not for fear, but for prayer and action! We have the power through Christ to affect our nation with our intercession and the intercessory activism we all need to be engaged in. (You can watch that original interview here.)
We received many emails and calls from intercessors wanting to know what they can do about a grid-down situation. We reached out to an expert on the grid and preparedness, Jonathan Hollerman, who along with Center for Security Policy’s Tommy Waller, shared about the biblical perspective on preparedness. We want to underscore that we at IFA believe that even though we may experience difficult times in our nation, we believe that God still has plans and purposes for our nation–He is calling us to pray for America for a reason! Here is the follow up interview:
Verses shared about preparedness:
Those who work their land will have abundant food but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty. (Proverbs 28:19)
The wise store up choice food and olive oil, but fools gulp theirs down. (Proverbs 21:20)
And during these days prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. “And one of them named Agabus stood up and prophesied through the Holy Spirit that a great and severe famine would come upon the whole world. And this did occur during the reign of Claudius. “So the disciples resolved to send relief, each according to his individual ability [in proportion as he had prospered], to the brethren who lived in Judea. “And so they did, sending [their contributions] to the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul. (Acts 11: 27-30 Amp)
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. (Proverbs 6:6-9 KJV)
A wise man thinks ahead; a fool doesn’t, and even brags about it! (Proverbs 13:16)
The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, but the naive go on, and are punished for it. (Proverbs 22:3)
