I’m sure you’ve seen or heard a commercial or two…thousand, on urging you to buy gold or silver.
As we move closer and closer toward a treasonously-engineered financial collapse in America, it only seems prudent.
But is it, really?
One of the surest ways to smell out a source of disinformation is when they hype you with fear and adjure you to buy gold now! This is a dead giveaway that they are controlled opposition, or at least unscrupulous—especially if they are the ones selling it to you!
On the other side of the spectrum is those who say, “Gold will avail ye not!” The problem is, they’re talking to the wrong audience.
They will fling their silver into the streets and their gold will become an abhorrent thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the Day of the Wrath of the L-rd. They cannot satisfy their appetite nor can they fill their stomachs, for their iniquity has become an occasion of stumbling. ~ Ezekiel 7:19 NASB, (capitalization and abbreviation added to correct disrespect)
Precious metals will always be valuable right up to the end. Christians who quote Ezekiel 7 as a reason not to store wealth are fools. The very context of this passage says it all; it’s about judgment.
What the Bible says about it is that, come Judgment Day, only the Blood of Christ can save.
Prior to that, a lot of turmoil is coming and Christians will be around for almost all of it.
I detailed for you in my book how John Nelson Darby and Cyrus I. Scofield were the originators of at least four heresies which I will list with the most severe last:
- Christian Zionism: this has lead to disproportionate fixation on the prosperity of political Israel while she remains an apostate nation.
- Dispensationalism: the ridiculous idea that YHWH can’t deal with the Ekklesia, (“Church” implies institutional religion which is wrong) and apostate Israel at the same time. This puts the Ekklesia, to sleep while watching the wrong signs.
- The identity of Magog as Russia. This has Christians looking at a nation which now leads the world in Christian values to usher in Armageddon when Magog is in the vicinity of Turkey.
- The Pre-Tribualtion Rapture: this encourages Christians to be lazy and asleep when the anti-Christ and his beast are upon us!
One need only to read carefully a foundational Rapture passage to know the Truth:
Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the Return of our L-rd Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the Day of the L-rd has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the Man of Lawlessness is revealed, the Son of Destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the Temple of G-d, displaying himself as being G-d. ~ II Thessalonians 2:1-4, NASB (alterations, capitalization and abbreviation added for clarity and respect)
If you are a Christian, you will see both the Great Apostasy and the Man of Lawlessness. Is it important to have a little bullion in the bank when that happens?
It sure as hell is.
IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT
When planning for doomsday, you’re going to need more than an automatic shotgun for mowing down zombies (although I would never turn down an AA12 if I could get my hands on one).
The essence of Christianity is stewardship. This is a standard that is found throughout the Old and New Testaments.
Go to the ant, O sluggard,
Observe her ways and be wise,
Which, having no chief,
Officer or ruler,
Prepares her food in the summer
And gathers her provision in the harvest.
How long will you lie down, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep? ~ Proverbs 6:6-9, NASB
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. ~ I Timothy 5:8, KJV
So how do you do that?
Well, first and foremost is to make sure you are right with your Creator. The Bible states very clearly that the only way to do that is to make Jesus Christ the Master of your life.
It also states that when the man of the home is a passionate, committed follower of Christ, the rest of his home is sure to follow. [Acts 16:31]
The most rebellious of children will still come back to your example if you have raised them right. [Proverbs 22:6]
So now you’re Saved. What do you do with it?
Don’t just sit on it…you might lose it.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my Name’s Sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be Saved. ~ Mark 13:13, KJV (capitalization added to correct disrespect)
If you’re being a diligent, disciplined Christian, you’re preparing. So how do you “prep”?
It’s important for a good steward to prepare for the needs of any who depend on him in his household. It’s a matter of resources.
If I had endless resources, I would stock up on water, food, fuel, toilet paper and bandages for 1 to 2 years. But I don’t have endless resources so I have about 1 to 2 weeks worth and am working toward 1 to 2 months. That includes providing for our pets and we have an ark full of them.
This is critical: Christians should not obsess about prepping enough. You do the best you can with the resources you have and the L-rd will take care of the rest!
How about guns?
Too bad Ronald Reagan made automatic weapons illegal for all but the stupid-rich. An automatic shotgun would be easy and fun!
But just like your other provisions; start with what you can handle. I’d much rather you be a dead shot with a .22 or a .38 than have a house full of high-powered weaponry you aren’t any good with. The more people in your household that can shoot your weapon for you, should you become incapacitated, the better!
Ammo? Again, stock up in the best way you can. Be warned, the current batch of über-traitors are using ammo shortages as de facto gun control.
Most good Americans live hand-to-mouth. They do this because banker scum conducted a coup in 1913 that stole their nation’s economy called “the Central Bank”—also known as the “Federal Reserve”…except it isn’t “Federal”, and there are no “reserves”.
In 100 years the dollar has been eviscerated in its wealth. Disconnecting it from specie like precious metals has made it even easier for the bankster traitors.
If you type “dollar has lost 95% of its value” into either Google or Bing you will get two full pages of propaganda, lies and so-called “debunking”—particularly of Ron Paul making this statement.
Online inflation calculators are also skewed. They tell you, “plug in the amount and we’ll tell you what it’s worth in 1913 dollars.” No, scum. That’s still a positive spin.
Go to this CPI Inflation Calculator, input $1 and make the first date 2015 and the second date 1913 (when the banker coup was enacted) and the answer will be $0.04
When you’re working two jobs and giving your babies to outsiders to raise (and possibly abuse), this is why.
If you want to know who is behind it, read my book. If I just say, “the Vatican”, you’ll think I’m crazy. 826 pages and 2,000 citations says I’m not.
So, clearly, having a precious metal giving your capital or assets real value is enticing. But how do you keep it? Is it an investment? Do you trade it? Wait for it to increase in value and sell it? Never sell it and keep it as an “investment” for when everything collapses?
Along with the question, “Where will you store your gold or silver?” is the even more important question, “How do you know what you have purchased is really gold or silver?”
We have read about one Chinese counterfeiter openly bragging about producing 100,000 fake U.S. Silver Dollars per year, and that’s just one counterfeiter. … We fear this Chinese counterfeit gold, or silver coins, or bars, could be a multi billion dollar a year business, and we greatly fear many innocent investors could be taken to the cleaners. Apparently, many of the Chinese counterfeit is of such high quality coin dealers, or experts have to weigh, and use various high tech testing methods to determine if the coin, or precious metal is legitimate. …
We fear the Chinese coin, or precious metal counterfeiting industry is pumping out so much product, we are now advising all coin, or precious metal investors, or collectors to stay away from Internet auction web sites, flea markets, estate sales, and only deal with reputable coin, or precious metal dealers, that have been in business for at least a decade, and dealers that specifically offer a money back guarantee for their products.” ~ Global Piracy & Counterfeiting Consultants [reposted here]
PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. — Daryl Casson thought he found a pretty good deal. Solid silver bullion at a price just below market value. So he met up with a man who had advertised the silver on Craigslist.
“I looked at them, I weighed them. They looked perfect, they weighed perfect and I bought them,” Casson said.
Casson has some experience investing in precious metals and was sure he’d gotten a good buy on high quality silver bullion.
But when a friend in the precious metals business heard of Casson’s great deal, he was wary, telling him to bring him the bars for testing. “I tested mine, they were all fake,” said Casson.
Counterfeit silver bullion and coins are flooding the internet as producers in China mint the phony valuables and sell them online as novelty items. But the fakes look and feel very real. ~ KIRO TV
OWE NO MAN ANYTHING
In one of the most horribly abused chapters in the Bible—Romans 13—is the key to personal finances:
Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.
Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. ~ Romans 13:7-8
As I said in a previous column, Paul’s dictum to “obey righteous government” does not apply to what America has become. It is an evil, lawless Leviathan.
There are two sides to this requirement; the citizen side, and the government side.
Recall that Paul was writing during overt reign of the Holy Roman Empire (we now live during the covert reign of that same beast). He needed to be careful with how he addressed political authority lest he needlessly hamper the spread of the Gospel.
This is so easily settled: Is your government good? Is it righteous? Does it follow the description laid out by the Apostle Paul?
What would you call a government that gives special sanction to a third trimester abortion “doctor”—a man who literally pulls fully-formed babies out of their mother’s womb, takes the most innocent, vulnerable, defenseless form of human life, then jabs a pair of scissors into the base of that baby’s little head?
To be honest, neither did it apply to Rome. But it’s OK for Paul to have been misunderstood, or even for him to couch his message in a misleading manner. At the moment of his writing, mankind needed the Gospel. It still does.
But what are committed Christians to do now that they’re Saved? Should they live the Righteousness of Christ and do all they can to see it invoked in their supposed representative republic?
Your financial priorities should absolutely be to get out of debt. Banksters and moneychangers are bleeding you with usury. I’d like to lose the muslims on them just long enough to be done with them.
If you should be blessed to have excess capital to invest, do so with caution and only through the most reputable firms (which are still no guarantee).
Should you buy gold or silver sovereigns and keep them in a safe for Armageddon? It wouldn’t hurt! But, again, that’s nothing to obsess over.
We have come up with a great starting point for your emergency “LEAVE NOW” kit that most call a “BUG-OUT bag” but understand you must multiply your supplies for everyone that is in your care.
As I said, in our house, that includes cat carriers because we will be leaving no one behind.
When I say, “don’t obsess” or “don’t overdo it” I am honestly speaking to Christians. It’s a good rule of thumb regardless of your beliefs but Christians are actually required to let go once they can do no more.
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?”
“Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?”
“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these!”
“But if G-d so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith!”
“Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the heathen eagerly seek all these things; but your Heavenly Father knows what you need.”
“Seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” ~ Matthew 6:25-34, NASB with slight alterations for clarity and respect
Of course, the key is, this only works if you’ve already done all you can do.
How do you know?
I think we all know in our hearts what a hard day’s work is.
This will be borne out by what your bank statement says.
It should not be in the red, especially if you’re the leader of a family.
Also, there will be needs and even luxuries that are important to your family’s wellbeing. No matter how bad things are for us, my wife and I try to spend a night out even if it’s just to get a beer at the pub. Your kids will need things here and there to include things that make them happy, as well.
This is a gray area but a dedicated Christian will know what “sacrifice” is in comparison to “indulgence” or “over-indulgence”.
TITHES AND OFFERINGS
If you want to completely insure you’re doing the right thing, make sure you are donating to the L-rd’s Work. As I’ve told you, within 2 years things are really going to go down. The time to save souls is now.
As a general rule, giving back 10% of what you earn is best. This precedent was set by Abraham in giving a gift of 10% to Melchizedek—a very unusual person who was both king and priest in a type of Jesus Christ. [Genesis 14 and Hebrews 7]
If you are doing all of this and living your Walk with Christ, you absolutely have no worries.
