Dr. Charles Cooper wrote a book analyzing a Christian‘s prospects in surviving the Great
Tribulation. While I have not read the book, a pamphlet was sent to me from his ministry

summarizing the main message of his book. The pamphlet revealed that Cooper believes it is
futile to resist Antichrist because the forces of evil will have too much technology. While I agree

that it will be extremely difficult to survive the Great Tribulation with Antichrist‘s advanced

technology, rabid followers, and fallen angels roaming the earth, I do not believe that resistance
is completely futile in one area of the world (see my message to Messianic Jews below for a
complete explanation).

At this moment, I think that the Great Tribulation is slated to last between one and two
years. During this time buying essentials like food and water will be nearly impossible with the
Mark of the Beast system in place, with people willing to snitch on other people, and with some

fallen angels likely posing as humans. Therefore, you likely need over a year‘s worth of supplies

prepositioned in a safe area to give you and your family the best chance to survive the Great
Tribulation. However, there is perhaps one potential way to circumvent the Mark of the Beast
system. Ezekiel 7:19 and Zephaniah 1:18 indicate that gold and silver will be used as currency
by people as people will be carrying both items around with them on the streets.

o Eze 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their
silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD:
they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of
their iniquity.

o Zep 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the
LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall
make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

It may be possible to pay off some people during the Great Tribulation to provide you with
essential supplies by using gold and silver. However, I would not advise doing something like
this unless there are no other alternatives.

Enduring more than a year without the ability to purchase the essentials of life is a very
daunting task for anyone. However, you may be given divine assistance to help you endure the
Great Tribulation. Christ‘s message to the Church of Philadelphia in Revelation 3 promises that
those who keep the Word of God and remain patient will be kept ―out of the hour of trial‖.

o Rev 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is
holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and
shutteth, and no man openeth;
o Rev 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut
it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

o Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and
are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to
know that I have loved thee.
o Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the
hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the
earth.

o Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy

crown.

This passage does not mean that Christians will be removed or ―raptured out‖ before the Great
Tribulation begins. According to the late Robert Van Kampen, ―‗Keep‘ in this context, translates
a Greek verb that carries the basic idea of protection while within a sphere of danger, and

―from‖, a bad translation of the Greek word ek, has the basic meaning of deliverance ‗out of‘ or
‗out from within‘ this dangerous time‖.331

In other words, faithful believers will be given a

degree of divine protection from the dangers that exist in ―the hour of testing‖ or the Great

Tribulation.
