So I guess we should begin talking about stockpiling and how it's different than hording. Those who have collecting skills or miserly qualities should easily move well with this skill provided they have a prepared heart. As God's Word states, only those who are righteous, industrious and good stewards will end well: Proverbs 10:3, 11:1, 11:24-26.

  1. Proverbs 10:3 - The LORD will not allow the righteous soul to famish.
    We need to hold ourselves to high integrity and standards in the beginning of these dark times. Be honest and truthful with our words and actions, courageous and dogmatic about what's right, loyal and faithful to God at all costs.
    There's nothing righteous in being angry, inconsiderate, jealous or rude. Righteousness starts by being ready to admit we're wrong, and by acknowledging natural laws that govern us as being universal with accountability.

  2. Proverbs 11:1 - Dishonest scales are an abomination of the LORD, but a just weight is His delight.
    I.E. Don't clock in time you didn't work. Don't say you did something if you didn't. If the United States economy collapses and bartering becomes a popular way of life, remember that God's law states that any cheater pays back seven fold what he stole.

  3. Proverbs 11:24-26 - There is one who scatters, yet increases more; and there is one who withholds more than is right, but it leads to poverty. The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself. The people will curse him who withholds grain, But blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.
    Any man who doesn't provide for his family's needs first is a twisted dung heap. After providing for your family, see how you can further sustain your need and others with what you have remaining. Although God blesses those who bless the poor, we need to be industrious in how we help others. Remember the parable of the maids with the oil lamps in Matthew 25:1-13. Although the parable is intended to demonstrate our spiritual preparedness for the tribulation (perhaps even acceptance of the rapture itself) it holds wisdom for other aspects in life. In short, it's the boyscout motto: be prepared.

What should we stockpile? Nonperishable Consumables. These are items that last long on the shelf that everyone uses: Daily necessities such as toilet paper, shaving cream, razors, toothpaste; Cans or packages of food with more than two or three years of shelf-life such as beans, peanut butter and ramen noodles; Extra batteries; Bottled water and water purifiers; "sinful" pleasures such as cigarettes, wine, bottles of rum.

You might not have interests in these items, but others will in a couple of years.
