~ LawnLove Looks at 2023’s Best Cities for Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse ~
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.Zechariah 14:12 NIV
September is US national preparedness month, so now is as good a time as any to get prepared. Whether it is a natural disaster, a man-made disaster or perhaps the zombie apocalypse, it pays to have some good plans in place. Most Zombie movies seem to deal more with preparation and survival during an outbreak, and less with any demonic activities.
