Ray; I'm Really Scared About These Camps

By Ray Gano

Bill H.R. 645 titled the "National Emergency Centers Establishment Act," has been introduced into congress.

Sec 3 (b)(1): "capable of meeting for an extended period of time the housing, health, transportation, education, public works, humanitarian and other transition needs of a large number of individuals affected by an emergency or major disaster."
Yep you read it right.

Congressman Alcee Hastings, a democrat from Florida, introduced the bill.

For a while now we have been hearing about “prison camps / detention camps” Back in the early 1990’s it was the UN who was behind them, today it is FEMA.

During WW2 the US Government “relocated” Japanese and Italian Americans to these types of “housing” areas.

I was going to write on Matthew 7 and the need to really understand undeniable truth / absolute truth, but God spurred me in another direction when I got an email this morning…

Dear Ray,

I'm really scared about these camps -

You have always been honest - my family and I heard an interview between Steve Quayle and a man named Greg Evensen - they claim the government will generate a crisis then impose martial law, call for voluntary gun confiscation - then go after everyone who has ever owned a gun - kill them or take them to these camps and kill them - they say this is suppose to happen within the next couple of months - my daughter owned one several years back - but in light of this I guess we will have to replace it

But I'm terrified - I literally haven't stopped shaking for a week...I know you have done stories concerning martial law on the youtube Prophezine news I won't lie I didn't want to believe them – I was prepared to lose everything (stored a little tiny bit of gold, and food - was trying to grab a trailer for back up living and we were going to grab some silver this month) - now I feel like I'm dying next week and should start giving it all away to people I had on a list that we knew we'd have to take care of if the economy got worse -

Thank you in advance - I didn't know who else to write and ask – Jack Kelly has told his readers to prepare financially but not to store food away and said recently he didn't believe Satan would come after us - Rapture Ready didn't feel we had anything to worry about between now and when the Rapture happens - Since you're the only one warning about martial law I figured I'd come to you-

God Bless
PZ Reader “K”

Folks, PZ Reader “K” is not alone. In fact I have been getting many emails expressing the same sentiment.

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Eph 6:13…

Eph 6:13 (KJV) Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Because of my stand on stewardship, being self reliant and promoting gardens and such people often say that I have no faith in God.

Actually that is wrong; I am doing what I do because I see a need and I am preparing for that need.

That need I see is to be ready to share the gospel in hard times. It is during the hard times that people have a willingness to turn to the Lord.

I thought that I would share the email I wrote in return because I feel that it will benefit many of those out there as well as help people understand why we do what we do here at the Gano home.

Here is the email that wrote to PZ Reader “K”…


Hello PZ Reader “K”

In all things we are called to occupy till he returns. (Luke 19:13)

1 Peter 3:15 tells us to always be ready to share the hope that is within us. In other words, be ready to share the gospel always.

If we have not made proper preparations, how can we have the time and freedom to share the gospel when the need is heavily called upon?

It is for that reason I want people to be prepared.

No matter what, I believe that hard times are coming to this nation. Be it economical, natural disaster, terrorist, ect.

This nation has refused to repent for her sins and this country continues to wallow in depravity. We have turned our backs upon the Lord and it is only His judgment that will make us look upon Him again. Man’s nature is that of sin. Only when the Holy Spirit acts through conviction or judgment, it is at that time that we turn our faces to the Lord.

We are a Christian nation, which is a fact. God punishes those who are His and this nation was founded upon Him.

Because of that, I feel that this nation will come under hardship and God chastising us.

Now with that said, I believe that if we are doing all that we can to prepare to share the gospel in the hard times; God will give us the grace to see us through.

God’s Word tells us to “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God….”

If we do nothing and sit on our hands in fear, then we deserve what we get, which will probably be bondage of some sort.

But if we work hard readying ourselves to share the gospel in the coming hard times, not only will we be able to help others; we will also position ourselves to help our family too. Now I am not proposing that we set up to be some sort of welfare soup kitchen. I am talking about our immediate circle of influence, those people we know and can help.

Example, if we work to grow a garden, store our harvest, put dry goods back for hard times, we can be in the position have extra to share with neighbors if needed in the hard times.

Just think, if we are in hard times, how much is a can of beans, spam, 12 eggs worth?

When hard times hit, they will be worth a lot. We learned this lesson during the great depression.

Now if you have that extra and you are willing to help your neighbor in need, do you think that they would be grateful?

Do you think that they would be open to hearing the gospel?

Do you think that your loving witness will make a difference in their lives?

If you said yes, then you are starting to understand my position.

What we need to be doing now is preparing to share the gospel and help our neighbors. Hard times are coming. We have the chance to be the salt and light no matter what happens, but to do that, we need to be ready like we are told in 1 Peter 3:15.

When the rubber meets the road, when we focus on building HIS kingdom, HE takes care of the details.

Tracye and I have been living every day by faith. Our bank is always close to empty, but we always have food and money to pay the bills. God takes care of our little details, we just have to learn to turn them over to Him and focus on the task he has given us.

I like to say that I am in charge of operations and God is in charge of accounting. If I do all that I can do with the gifts and talents God has given me to further the Gospel, then he will take care of the rest.

I feel that no matter what, as long as our eyes are upon Him, he will keep His Hand of protection upon us. I know this because he has done it many times for our family.

Learn from Noah. He knew something was coming, but did not know what it was because God did not really give the details. So he built an ark like God told him to do.

Now please take special notice here, God did not build the ark for him, Noah did. God also did not just drop the ark out of thin air.

Could have God done those things?

Yes, BUT… it was the actions of Noah that was the witness to all. People saw his faith, his actions.

When the time came to weather the storm, Noah and his family were taken care of.

Did everyone else see Noah doing this? Yes they did. Did they do anything to assist, help or build their own ark? No, they were caught up in the dealing of that day doing what they wanted. They were focused on themselves and the desires of the flesh.

That is what we see today, even in our churches.

Because Noah was faithful in doing what God told him to do, God preserved him and his family. In fact we see many examples of this sort of thing take place in scripture.

What Noah did was cover all his bases and was busy doing the task that the Lord gave him to do as best as he could do it and in doing all, he was ready.

What does Eph 6:13 say; “…and having done all, to stand.”

That is what we need to do. We need to do the best we can with what we have, the resources at hand and the time being given to us. We still have time, but we need to be diligent at the task.

We also need to do what we are doing unselfishly and in love for the lost. That is the key. If we are selfish, then we will fall into that fleshly trap of desire. Then we are doing no one any good.

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things will be given unto you.

One last thing, you fear because the power of God is not in you.

I say this because it happens to me at times too. Like Peter, we need to get out of the boat and walk on the water with Him.

When I fear, it shows me that there is some sin in my life that I need to get right with the Lord. I need to repent and come back into His fellowship.

He lost faith and the power of God because he took his eyes off the Lord.

The crux of the matter is when I fear, I lack faith. I fear because I have taken my eyes off of Him.

When I have faith, I do not fear. I have faith because I am in fellowship with Him and my eyes are upon Him.

But for me to have the power of God's faith in me, I need to be right with Him and in fellowship with him.

We fear because we have not fed our spirit.

The food we need is the daily reading of His Word and fellowship with our Lord.

I encourage you not to neglect God's Word. Read it every day. Your physical body needs food daily, so does your spirit. If you want the power of the Lord so that you can have the strength to walk in faith, you need to be in His Word. You need to be in fellowship with Him.

BUT… if you try to do what you need to do in yourself, as many of us have tried, you will fail miserably.

We can only do what we can do when the Will and Power of God is working through us. But to do that, we need to be in fellowship with Him and in His Word.

Now, I want to say I am not promoting some charismatic swinging from the chandelier, rolling all over the floor, babbling off at the mouth stuff. I am talking about being sober and firm, walking a humble life leaning upon Him and His Word and not your own understanding.

I wrote a report couple of years ago titled “11-Items-You-Need-To-Get-Now.” If you do not have this, it helps you get a start on your priorities. You can download this at the Prophezine website in the PZ Stewardship area.

If you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to contact me, we are here to serve.

If you are not a PZ Insider, become one. We have been adding more articles to The PZ Insider Report dealing more with self sustainability and things you can do.

By being a PZ Insider, it also helps Tracye and I to prepare and do what we need to do.

What is going to get those of us through the hard times, is realizing that what we have is not ours, but the Lords. We are just stewards over it. We can horde it for ourselves or we can use it to further the kingdom. Tracye and I are using what we have to further the kingdom, you can do the same.

Hope this helps.
