When Jesus returns, He will rule the whole earth from Jerusalem. He will teach and establish his law. He will judge between the nations, and there will be no more war.

The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
That the mountain of the Lord’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.

Many people shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

He shall judge between the nations,
And rebuke many people;
They shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war anymore.
                                                    – Isaiah 2:1-4

Now anyone can keep bees. All you need is a couple of plastic bottles and some knowledge. This is a huge breakthrough for beekeeping, a traditionally expensive and hard-to-start activity.

Check out this extraordinary research from Advoko MAKES:

To sweeten the deal, you can get free honey if you capture your own swarms. Here’s a video on that from Ok Adventure:

An excerpt from my forthcoming book FIND LAND NOW – A QUICK GUIDE FOR HOMESTEADERS.

If you have even the slightest desire to possess some land for your homesteading endeavors, then now is the time to start looking. Getting land, moving onto the land, building or renovating a house, and preparing your land for cultivation takes time—more time than you think. In fact, if you start looking for land right now, while your desire is fledgling, while homesteading seems more like a dream than a clear and present reality, then you’ll have a better chance of locating your land by the time your desire is full-blown and you’ve worn out the graces of your neighbors with your reprobate chicken flock and busting-at-the-seams food forest in suburbia.

If you don’t start looking for land until your desire is full-blown, that’s fine too. Just know that the search will take time, and your neighbors will have to endure your renegade squash vines for that much longer.

How Long it Takes To Find Land – A Sample Timeline from Our Search
Our family began to look for land at the start of 2019, but we didn’t get serious about our search until early 2020. From then, it took us until October, about ten months, to make an offer on a property we liked. We finalized our purchase in December 2020. A year is not a terribly long time for such a big decision, but we also chose a property relatively close to our suburban home, less than two hours away.

If you are looking to move out of state, or if the properties you’re viewing are more than a two-hour drive from your current residence, then your search may take longer. (It could also take less time, Lord willing.) Either way, scheduling viewings of remote properties will require more coordination, especially if you have small children. When you do get a chance to view a remote property, you will have to be extremely observant of the house and outbuildings, unless you’re buying raw land. You will also want to closely examine the land and the surrounding area.

The Longer It Takes, The More Shifts You’ll See in the Housing Market.
Another reason why you’ll want to start your land search ASAP is that the housing market can do all kinds of things between now and the day you list your current home for sale. The sooner you find land, the sooner you can step off the emotional roller coaster of watching the value of your home fluctuating with the whims of the market.

To give you an example, in December 2020, at that time we bought our land, we didn’t think our suburban house would sell for much of a profit. The housing market wasn’t doing anything extraordinary. A few months later, however, the demand for houses in our suburb had shot up to an all-time high. We weren’t quite ready to sell, as we were still renovating the country house.

We finally put our suburban house on the market in Fall 2021. The demand for houses had just about peaked in our area, but we were still able to sell for much higher than we’d anticipated. If we had put our house on the market any later, then we might have missed selling during a market peak.

An Early Start Means More Time For Research and Prayer
Even if the market had not shifted in our favor, I’m grateful we began our search for land sooner rather than later. An early start gave us more time to watch YouTube videos about relocating and to think through our decisions. The more time, prayer, and research you can give to the land search, the more familiar you’ll become with the land and housing market, and the more clarity you’ll gain about your homesteading goals.

Also, my inner prepper wants me to tell you that the sooner you find land, the sooner you can start growing your own food. Should a food crisis strike your area, or the United States as a whole, it’s better to have acreage than to be scrambling for land at the same time as everyone else.

Where to Begin the Search- The Internet, of Course

Before contacting real estate agents, which I will suggest you do later, go to popular real estate sites, such as Zillow, and Redfin, and sites that specialize in rural listings, such as Land and Farm, Land Watch, and Farm Flip, and simply search for properties with 2-50 acres of land within an hour or two of where you live. Even if you live in a congested city, chances are, there’s habitable land no further than a few hours away.

You don’t have to settle in any of the towns you find in this initial search, but a search like this is encouraging and educational. You will get a sense of the rural areas around you, and you’ll see the various sizes of plots available for purchase. There is much more research to be done before buying your homestead. But who knows? You might end up buying that farmstead you found the first time you searched Zillow.

When Jesus returns to earth, He will be a grown King, not a meek baby. He will save the world, not by dying for our sins, but by cleansing the earth of unbelief. He will execute judgment by fire and sword on humans who are living as if God doesn’t exist. A saved world is a believing world, which means unbelief must be purged.

Don’t let Jesus find you in unbelief. Fear God. Escape His fury. Believe today. Believe now, that only Jesus is the Savior of the world. Only Jesus died to take away our sins, the greatest sin of all being the refusal to believe that He alone is Savior.

For behold, the Lord will come in fire,
And His chariots like the whirlwind,
To render His anger with fury,
And His rebuke with flames of fire.
For the Lord will execute judgment by fire
And by His sword on humanity,
And those put to death by the Lord will be many.
– Isaiah 66:15-16
