We may have only a short time to prepare for tribulation if we have to face it. It doesn’t matter if you believe we are pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib; the preparation is the same. Root yourself deep in the Lord. You cannot half-heartedly believe and get through any tribulation without being firmly rooted in Jesus. Here’s what Jesus says:
yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away. Matthew 13:21
If you’ve been a little wishy-washy, with one foot in the world and one foot in heaven, now would be the time to shore up your belief, leave your worldly desires behind, and go full bore into seeking Jesus.
We must stay ready!
Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. Matthew 24:42
Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Matthew 24:44
Run hard after the Lord and start now.
Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:12-13
But from there you will seek the LORD your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, you will return to the LORD your God and obey his voice. Deuteronomy 4:29-30
