After the Tribulation. This is a 2-hour video documentary debunking the pre-tribulation rapture theory.

In Ancient Footsteps. In Ancient Footsteps we will journey back in time, to places found in the ancient writings of the scripture to understand and see how our forefathers used various types of oils, whether it be olive oil or the essential oils of herbs and various plants. We will explore together the symbolic meanings as well as the literal application of applying these oils to the benefit and healing of our bodies. Retracing the footsteps of our forefathers we will rediscover some of the ancient healing practices, unearth long forgotten recipes using herbs and spices which were used to make tinctures, and long forgotten plants or leaves combined with oils to make poultices for healing. As we journey through time we will gain a glimpse of what our ancestors instinctively knew as they applied the 'healing in the wings' and understood that it given to us by our loving Father - the Creator of all.

(Jeremiah 23:16, 20)" "Though I (Andrew Simmons) hale from common people and average means, though I'd prefer to blend into the background, unnoticed, unseen; now in this hour I stand ready and available for the work to which he is calling me.

The Blogs Plus page was added to provide a place for links that could not easily be placed in any of the other sections. We began prepping since the website was first designed and did not think ahead far enough to add a prepping section! So, in order to include prepping (and potentially other) subject matter I created this page to serve as an "other" category. "Other" seemed too non-descript, so "Blogs-Plus" was born. Added 1/8/13.
Wonder Box (or Wonder Oven, or Haystack Cooker, or any of a number of names). A wonder box is a heat retention cooker. After you bring your food to a boil, (so it is heated throughout) using any number of cooking methods, you remove it from the heat source and quickly place the pot inside the wonder box. The insulation of the wonder box will slow your food’s loss of heat keeping at cooking temperatures for hours. I figured out the dimensions for making this a rectangular (rather than square) oven because I wanted to use it with my big oval crockpots. I then made some; took pictures and everything! Then I learned from Megan Smith over at My Food Storage Cookbook that you can even bake muffins and bread in it! It really works! Added 2/14/13.

Deuteronomy 30 tells us that Torah will give us life through every situation and circumstance we may face. We seek to help prepare the family of God spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Of the Field. This is Linda Runyon's website. Wild food is everywhere! Get familiar with it! Start using it! The purpose of this site is to help you begin to seek your own free life, should you wish to do so.

Visit the OTF store and buy Linda's book The Essential Wild Food Survival Guide and some of her other products, and start learning. Added 2/11/13.
Wilderness Survival. The contents of this website are taken from actual U.S. Army training manuals. You will not find a more complete resource on Wilderness Survival. Don't make the mistake of thinking that being in a survival situation would be fun. Wilderness Survival is not a game and there is no immunity. Take action and educate yourself on survival techniques. Nature is unforgiving and you must be prepared to fight to stay alive. Check out this section on Cold Weather Survival. One of the most difficult survival situations is a cold weather scenario. With a little knowledge of the environment, proper plans, and appropriate equipment, you can overcome the elements. Remember, winter weather is highly variable. Cold is a far greater threat to survival than it appears. It decreases your ability to think and weakens your will to do anything except to get warm. Cold is an insidious enemy; as it numbs the mind and body, it subdues the will to survive. Cold makes it very easy to forget your ultimate goal--to survive. Here's a tip from the sub-section on Shelters. Note: In extreme cold, do not use metal, such as an aircraft fuselage, for shelter. The metal will conduct away from the shelter what little heat you can generate. Added 2/18/13.
Modern Homesteading. A no fluff look at rural living for newbies. Victoria Gazeley started dreaming about modern homesteading in the late 1990s when she found an original homesteader’s cabin in the woods and decided to restore it...she settled into her small heritage log cabin on 6 acres of west coast rainforest and began the process of learning the skills that would turn it into a tiny haven of style and self-sufficiency. In this blog she shares what she has learned and what she is learning. For example, she has some great information on chickens and choosing the best seeds for homesteading. Added 2/12/13.
