Can Doomsday Bunkers Survive Armageddon?

There is a popular television show named " Doomsday Bunkers". The people on this television show, show people how to build a underground shelter in order to protect themselves from the 'end of the world'. This includes not only the Doomsday Bunker, but how to save about three months of water, food, as well as weapons. The weapons are what people use to protect themselves from people who want to steal their food, water or even their Doomsday Bunker.

What is interesting, is why do these people think they can survive the end of the world or as it is written in the bible the battle of Armageddon.

In the book of Revelation, we have been told that the end of times are coming and we have seen the signs of the end of the world. Which is the reason, the Doomsday Bunkers are even being built.

Many people have already seen what has been written in the book of Revelation. Wars and rumors of wars, starvation, floods, plagues, earthquakes, and hurricanes. All of these are increasing rapidly. The economy is hurting, not only in this country, but all over the world.

Many people, especially politicians and world leaders are in love with money, and are only proud of themselves. Leaders of other countries, are even harming people who live in their own countries.

However, the worst part has not yet happened. The beast has yet to force us to take his mark. Will the Doomsday Bunkers be able to hide from the beast? I am not so sure. So is a Doomsday Bunker a safe place, or is it just a myth?

During the 50's there were a lot of people building bomb shelters to safeguard against the atomic bomb that was sure to come.....the doomsday bunkers will be just about as effective.

Interesting topic Michele!

Hi Michelle,

Here is what I believe (according to what the scriptures say): First of all, Jesus will rapture His saints, those of us who love Him and follow Him!.....all others will remain here on earth until the seven years of the Great Tribulation take place....and, at the end of those seven years, when all of the plagues that time, Jesus will return to earth for the battle of Armageddon, which of course we already know He one can fight against Almighty God and win obviously!..... and no bunkers or anything else can help them.......these Doomsday bunkers or any other invention, will never be able to protect anybody when Armageddon takes place....all who do not know Jesus Christ as their God and Savior will be wiped out & their souls cannot enter the kingdom of heaven with Jesus Christ our Lord....this is impossible, and it does not matter if a person spends a fortune on preparations, because ONLY Jesus saves....only belonging to Jesus Christ our Lord and for Him alone and Loving Him and everyone, is what gives us peace and joy here on earth, in the midst of all that is going on, and only belonging to Him, can anyone enter heaven with Him for all eternity....!.....and I believe that soon, Jesus Christ our Lord will rapture all of us, His saints, and....

THEN.... the Tribulation Period immediately begins.....First, a man who will seem to to be peace loving, kind, caring and honest, will come upon the world scene....and he will try to convince everyone that he is the messiah when he is fatally wounded..... and while recovering from his fatal wound, he will take the opportunity to convince everyone that if they are good citizens, they should report to get the mark on their forehead or right hand....and he will make it sound so great that people won't think it is evil.....

BUT.... once they have taken the mark, he will reveal his true identity of "the beast", and his true personality, (which will be from the devil), will finally show everyone just how evil he is....and the part that is heart-breaking, is that even if people later on realize that he is evil and they have made a mistake by taking the mark, it will be too late, because by taking the mark, they then belong to the, I pray that many people will bow their knees to Jesus Christ, so that they may know His Love, His Peace and joy here on earth, no matter what is going on around them.... and that when they die, they can spend all eternity with their Creator...and will have no more tears, sadness, pain, illness, hunger, anger.....ONLY LOVE for all eternity!

God bless you, and I am glad you belong to Jesus,

Thank you for this. Question: How does one test a "Doomsday Bunker"?

I had not even thought about that. I don't know how they would test a Doomsday Bunker.

Michele I agree with oceansider and those that are not saved and go in the rapture had better not take the mark, and of course those not taking it will be killed but they will save their souls. They will not be a part of the church but still be in heaven. There is scripture where God Himself comforts this group at the end and I think it will be these. Ones who know of Christ but did not accept Him until it was too late to be part of the Church. (Age of Grace) It took a lot of study to learn all this when my children were babies and I found out about the end but not all this hope and escape. It was terrifying until I found the whole truth. It is a beautiful study.

It is always good to read and ponder the scriptures knowing that there is meaning there for each of us to glean, here a little, there a little, and always there when we need it most.

Jackie you are right, those who do not take the mark will still have a chance. And yes God will comfort them. It is also wonderful that you have studied and you understand.

God bless you.

Perspycacious I agree with you. Even though there is a little here and a little there, you understand. Not everybody does, but then again you know a lot. I know that because I read your hubs, sorry I don't comment enough, but more people should read your hubs.

Hi Michele.. great hub here.. and I agree with you.. I believe that revelation will take plave.. just like it says.. and as long as we are truly children of God Jesus our Savior that we will be rapture.. but the ones that don't believe who have not truly ask the Lord for forgiveness of their sins will be left behind.. and and to endure total destruction.. oh how horrible it will be.. God warns us.. we have to listen.. I cry for people that don't care and that don't believe.. I pray for their souls.

God bless you for writing this

A doomsday bunker. To me, that's the same thing as an honest politician. Or fair wages. Naw, those cats won't be able to survive when the 7 last plagues hit. If they try to stay in the doomsday bunker when the sun is scorching the earth, they're going to get so hot and uncomfortable. Anyways, last time I checked, a doomsday bunker can't protect those who accept the beast from the boils on the skin. A door can't shut out mass infection. Nice hub, and voted way up!

On the show "Shipping Wars", they were transporting shelters to customers. As part of the show the owner gave a brief tour of one of the shelters. The manufacturer described business as booming. But other than that I had not heard of them since the 70's.

Hi Michele.

Time and time again you present a message needed. Though the Doomsday - Bunkers issue isn't my theme to say anything about; you have my total agreement about this sinful age conclusion.

Considering those whose names are written in the Book of Life , we are admonished to be faithful unto the end , focusing on being ready. You also have message for those who are not sure yet, as well those who never made commitment to repent and to be saved .

You also have opened the door for edifying comments ; accept my thanks for that , as well as my vote high up .

God bless you and keep you until that great day of going " home " , my sister by the same Heavenly Father.,

Hello Michael-Milec well, I wrote this because of the popularity of the television show. But, it is so false, and so many people believe in it!

I just wish more would open their hearts to our Father and love and understand Him.

God bless you my brother.

Hi Michele,

Yep, there will be no escaping the judgment. We meet God now as Saviour or we'll met Him later as Judge. It's our choice and now is the time to make that choice. Thanks for sharing!

I agree with your thoughts, Michele. It would seem almost impossible to hide from what is to come. Still, having one of these for protection against tornados would be a good idea.

Your understanding of the scriptures is totally correct and of course no one will hide from the pending Armageddon.

Have a nice day!

I've never seen this TV program, but it sounds interesting. People who build bomb shelters are seeking physical, not spiritual protection. No one can hide from God. : )
