I wanted to add this...the thing is there is nothing in the bible in regards to the time ends about preparing by stock piling or doing these other things people think they should do. The only scripture given for those that think this is yet to be fulfilled is in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 about fleeing Judea...when they see the city surrounded by the armies. Most of us don't live in Judea though. Jesus told those people to not even stop to get their cloak...to not get anything...but to flee as quickly as they could! So they literally had to leave everything behind...nothing was said about grabbing a bunch of food or survival gear or anything at all...but to literally drop everything and run if they wanted to live.
And while you are frustrated with those of us to say to rely on God we ARE going by what the bible says:
Do Not Worry
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
As far as I know there is just no scriptures saying to prepare physically for the tribulation or other hard times. It clearly says "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness..."
If you can find scriptures that say we need to prepare in some way, then please post them.
