Better Than Gold?

Everyone in the markets is terrified. The Dollar is done. The Euro is collapsing. The Yen is debt ridden from the earthquake. The Yuan is a communist controlled currency. There is only ONE safe haven. GOLD.


Not if I read my Bible right.

Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time. Daniel 11:35

In the coming troubles there will only be ONE currency that matters...Faith in God. It's a substance. It carries Hope. It pleases Him when we have it. And He responds to it with provision.

Those who bow down to the idol of gold will think they are safe. But they are in bondage. Faith must stand.
Daniel 3:4 "This is what you are commanded to do, O peoples, nations and men of every language:5 As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6 Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace."

That is the threat of the day... bow or burn.

Yet those who trust in their money, trust in gold will find it useless as the fall comes.

Isaiah 13:17 Behold, I am going to stir up the Medes against them,

Who will not value silver or take pleasure in gold.

18And their bows will mow down the young men,
They will not even have compassion on the fruit of the womb,
Nor will their eye pity children.

In the end you can't eat gold and silver. It won't protect you. Only your Father in Heaven, the Lord of all the Armies can.
They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be an unclean thing. Their silver and gold will not be able to save them in the day of the LORD's wrath. They will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it, for it has made them stumble into sin. Ezekiel 7:19

Your silver and gold will not save you on that day of the LORD's anger. For the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy. He will make a terrifying end of all the people on earth. Zephaniah 1:18

It was true's true now. Those who trust in horses and chariots have false trust. Decide this day who you will trust. Who you will serve. Who you will bow to. Satan has no new schemes, just old ones polished silver.

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver! Proverbs 16:16 - Sam
