Silver and Gold.
Silver and Gold. If ever there was a time to repent of your sins and accept Jesus as Lord, today is the day. The financial world is lieing to all. They are saying that this world is in great shape. China and the United States are spending money like there is no tomorrow. Both are becoming broke. [CNN; Bush's proposed Pentagon budget for the fiscal year that began October 1 is $419 billion, not including as much as $50 billion that Congress is likely to add to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and against terror worldwide(Babylon?). He mentioned no budget figures, but the U.S. Defense Department has earlier said China might be spending $90 billion on defense this year -- three times the announced total.(Gog and Maygog?)] [''People should not be forced out their homes at the will of any private development,'' said Sen. Kit Bond, R-Mo.,
The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in June that local governments could take homes for private development projects that generate jobs and tax revenue.] Psa 146:3-5 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:
We hear lie after lie concerning the financial positions of not only this country but all. This is one of the things that the anti-christ will use to get the world to trust in Him. Many today are wanting signs from God that His word is true, but, He has showed you signs and wonders, time and time again. Floods, earthquakes, fires, Hurricanes, Tsunamis, signs in the heavens, but still people are blinded by what they do see. Science is blinding people to the truth, always coming up with some logical reason for each and every catastrophe. We have seen man at his best and at his worst. Can you not see, that man cannot handel all these catastrophes, money is becoming tighter and tighter. You cannot put your trust in man and his money. Isa 2:19-22 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of ? Who is man that you can put your trust in? Where is it stated that this world will last forever? Where is it stated that your savings will be there when you need it? No where. There is no guarantee for tomorrow. Just look at the news here lately, Company after company are taking the benefits and retirement away from there employees, a man who has worked for 25 or even 30 years for his retirement, loses all and has to start over again. The rich getting richer and the poor are paying the bill. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of ? Think, Think about what is going on, think about the prophecys of the Bible, Think about your future in eternity. There is no such thing as ?Social Security?, who can guarentee your future? (Barnes)A man shall cast ... - That is, ?all? who have idols, or who have been trusting in them. Valuable as they may be - made of gold and silver; and much as he may ?now? rely on them or worship them, yet he shall then see their vanity, and shall cast them into dark, obscure places, or holes, where are moles and bats. Isa 31:7-9; For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited. And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem. The destruction of Babylon is simple enough. Rev 18:16-19; And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. The idea that Silver and Gold will continue to be of great price is a deception that many are believeing. When just the debt of this country is over $7,000,000,000,000, where will the rest of the world be in the next couple of years? Who are we to turn to, who are we to trust? Each day the debt grows and grows around the world. Do you really believe that things can continue on. There are going to be great wars coming. The anti-christ will rise up, He will make war and He will decieve the world into thinking He has all the worlds problems solved. Do you really want to put your trust in man and Silver and Gold ?
