There is a growing concern about the future collapse of currency that potentially could happen at any moment. World banks across the globe, being led by our own Fed, are throwing caution to the wind as they infuse hundreds of billions into their economies in an attempt to ward off a number of concerns, fear being the chief one. In a move of anticipating the inevitable, people have led the charge on gold and silver in the past few years, driving gold into record territory with silver not far behind. But is it possible that this concern over the preservation of wealth is even mentioned in the Bible? Consider Ezekiel 7:19
They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity.
Amazing! This describes a collection of silver and gold by the people in the end times, the day of wrath of the Lord. People are attempting to use it “to deliver” them from some unmentioned calamity though the Lord prevents even this escape.
For some reason, people will actually throw their silver into the streets! It even says their gold shall be removed. I take it as meaning confiscation. You don’t actually believe a corrupt government will allow Joe six-pack to have a stash of gold in his basement while said government attempts to usher in a world control system? No, the order will come down that it will be against the law to hoard or hold any gold or silver to be used as currency. Their system of control will be absolute in the last days, forcing upon the world a “mark of the beast” currency. You will not be allowed to barter or trade or swap your gold for the new usable currency of the day. No man may buy or sell without the mark of the beast. It even says they “shall not fill their bowels”, meaning you won’t be getting food using silver or gold. There will be no escape from the judgment unleashed by the Lord.
What will be your escape then? The only one that is possible, the only one meaningful, is coming to know Christ Jesus as your Lord and savior. Then, no matter what happens to your body, your soul will be saved. Pray that you come to this saving grace before time runs out…
