10/40 Bug-out Window

As high net worth individuals expatriate from the US to reduce their tax burden or get out of the way of the coming economic collapse and bail-ins, some sincere followers of Jesus are also getting ready to bug-out of America Babylon and move to countries where they can speak English and live in relative freedom. Some are also considering where they might be able to serve the Lord Jesus and His Kingdom. For those who really want to step out on faith and go after God's own heart, why not consider going where the Good News of Jesus is needed the most - the 10/40 Window, which is also called "The Resistant Belt" and includes the majority of the world's Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists.

"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." - Matthew 24:14

Beautiful feet

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! - Romans 10:14,15

Since the days of Abraham, God's plan has clearly been to shower His blessings and give His Word and Holy Spirit to selected people - to enjoy Him, His presence and His protection as long as they obey and love Him in return. Part of obeying and loving God includes reaching out to share His blessings and His Word and His Holy Spirit with others worldwide, so that people of all ethnic groups can be rescued from the power of the devil. (See 1 John 5:19, 2 Corinthians 4:4 and 1 John 3:8.)

Jonah syndrome

Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord ... - Jonah 1:1-3

History shows that most people prefer to stay in their comfort zones rather go out to share the Good News of Jesus. If God asks a person to go outside his of her comfort zone, it is easy to come up with excuses and run from God's calling. (For further study, read the entire book of Jonah.)

The power of persecution

And they stoned Stephen ... And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem ... As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. - Acts 7:59, 8:1-4

Persecution has historically been an effective impetus to move God's people out of their comfort zones to find greener pastures and finally share with lost souls. Examples include the scattering of the Jerusalem saints after the stoning of Stephen, the migration of Puritans to the New World due to pressures in Europe and movements today in the Mideast and many politically unstable places.

For God so loves the world ...

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. - 2 Peter 3:9

God loves every individual - even the vilest of sinners. He is even able to bring repentance to people in any nation. Examples include Ninevah (Jonah 3:1-10), the Roman Empire, China and recently Japan (since the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.) We should expect that He will continue this practice. The problem is that many groups of people still have no effective witness for Jesus.

Early birds catch the best worms

He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame. - Proverbs 10:5

When persecution starts in the US, Christians either be martyred, go underground or leave the country. As the Revelation 13 beast system will probably start in the US and then spread worldwide, it's only natural that a large number of Americans will leave America Babylon. The problem is that most will do so only as a last-minute escape. There's nothing wrong with that, but why wait until the last minute? People in an unreached people group may be waiting for you right this minute, so do some research and do some prayer and fasting. Ask God,"Father, where would you like me to go? Is there a a place in the 10/40 Window I can bug out to and also bring the Good News of Jesus? Is there a place I can use my professional or business skills and experience to not only survive but take the precious name of Jesus?"

The Joshua Project is one good place to start investigating and getting educated about opportunities.

And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. - Luke 17:5,6
