Texas Community Goes Underground For Doomsday Prep



CBS: Some upper-income Texans are headed down below, not Australia, but below the surface.

An investor group is planning for a doomsday scenario by building a $300 million luxury community replete with underground homes. There will also be air-lock blast doors designed for people worried about a dirty bomb or other disaster and off-grid energy and water production.

“People are getting fearful of this world — there’s ISIS, there are things like Zika virus to race relation and the police brutality they see on TV — people are nervous. People want a place they can have safety for themselves and for the future of their families,” Whitt added. “If need be, it’s going to be one of the safest places on Earth.”

Opinion: Prepper: a person who believes a catastrophic disaster or emergency is likely to occur in the future and makes active preparations for it, typically by stockpiling food, ammunition, and other supplies.

A Christian (end-time) Prepper mostly believes that the rapture of the church (1 thess. 4:16-18) will take place after the Antichrist is revealed and that Christians will have to undergo the wrath, i.e, suffer the persecutions of the Great Tribulation.

To be sure, there are several variations of when the church is taken to Christ and it is not possible for me to write about them all. Our website is dedicated to sharing the Dispensational pre-trib rapture position as evidenced by our study Bible Prophecy 101 on the front page of this website.

However, there are many church groups promoting preparation for coming disaster. (Christian Emergency Preparedness Network).
Peppers are likely to have a garage or storage facility filled with supplies that will get them through the 7 years of hell on earth.

Those folks get real upset at the pre-trib position. They call it a dangerous lie and the work of Satan.

That said, we believe that there is sufficient evidence in God’s word to support the pre-trib position, if a person is careful to rightly divide the Word as explained in the book of the same title by Clarence Larkin (here):

“While the Bible was written FOR all classes of people, and FOR our learning, it is not addressed to all people in general. Part of it is addressed to the JEWS, part to the GENTILES, and part to the CHURCH. These three constitute the “Three Classes” into which humanity is divided. 1 Cor. 10: 32. It follows therefore that while the whole Bible was written for the instruction of the Church, it is not all written about the Church. The Church is not mentioned in the Old Testament. The Old Testament is mostly taken up with the history of one nation, that of Israel.”

In our recent response to one of our readers, we said this:

When rightly dividing the word (2 Tim. 2:15) it is important to ask three questions:
Who is speaking?
To whom is the person speaking?
What is the context of what is being spoken?

In Matthew 24 Jesus is speaking. He is speaking to the disciples (Jews) since the Church does not yet exist. The context is the tribulation (Daniel 9:27).

Matthew 25:15-16 confirms: ““Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ [mid-way point of the tribulation] spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”

Who is in Judea? Once again Jesus is warning His people, the Jews, to flee to the mountains to escape the wrath of Antichrist.

The disciples Paul and John wrote to the Gentile church, 1 Thess. 4:16-18; 1 Thess. 5:9-11; 1 Thess. 1:10, and in Rev. 3:10 John told the church at Philadelphia (corresponds with the Evangelical church that began in the 1800’s) that it would be kept ‘from’ (Greek ‘out of’) the hour of trial.

Jesus taught Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21




  1. Progress! You are starting to see the need to defend the pre-trib view, and are beginning to get into the specifics of Matthew 24 (but not into the disproving part, but only the part you believe supports the pre-trib position so far. Still, you are in the right Chapter, the one right from Jesus Himself about all the end time events leading up to His (only) return in the clouds, though Jesus later supplements in Revelation.

    Jesus knew how to speak to Jews, to Gentiles (woman at the well), and to His disciples, who are the ones who comprise His church – agreed? And He often spoke to the different groups, and His Word does a good job of telling us who His audience was each time.

    The theory that Jesus in Matthew 24 is only speaking to His disciples located in Judea is not correct, as He tells this very group that ‘You will be arrested, persecuted and killed ALL OVER THE WORLD. Matthew 24:9. And does He tell them they will be killed because they are Jews (as happened in WWII)? No. He tells them they will be killed because they are His FOLLOWERS. Matthew 24:9. Not because they are Jews.

    He says this will great worldwide persecution will happen AFTER the abomination of desolation in the Jewish Holy Place (Matthew 24:15).

    As I shared with you before, He tells the ones in Judea to flee to the wilderness because it is there, and only there, that God will provide 3.5 years of supernatural protection, WHILE the rest of us DO go through the great worldwide persecution (Revelation 12 sets this all forth very clearly, in total agreement with Matthew 24).

    The great worldwide persecution, which Jesus clearly says we will go through before He returns in the clouds for us (Matthew 24:9,30-31) (and Paul agrees as He says Jesus does not come back into the clouds until the very last trumpet 1 Cor 15:52)), is Satan’s and the AntiChrist’s wrath against us. God permits it, but it is not HIS wrath.

    Concerning God’s wrath, we have no disagreement that we will not go through that. The only issue is whether we are on earth (but missed by it when it happens, like at Passover) or whether we are removed before it happens. To me, that issue is not important. We are protected either way. To me, what is important, is that we obey Jesus’ instruction in Matthew 24 to not be misled by the many who came in His name to disagree with or explain away what He clearly tells His followers in Matthew 24, and instead to accept the warning and be willing to suffer and die for Jesus. He is worth it!

    For those who refuse to accept what Jesus says about this, the danger is in Matthew 24:10 and 13:”And many will turn away from me. Only those that endure to the end to be saved.” Jesus warns us elsewhere that we must not deny Him under this pressure, and that we must not take the mark of the beast. He gives us the winning formula in Revelation:

    “This means that Jesus’ followers must endure the persecution patiently, keeping God’s commands and maintaining their…
