As world economic conditions continue to deteriorate, people are wondering what to do when they see their portfolios also deteriorating as time goes by. Most investors have already lost the gains made in the 90s before the stock market bubble began deflating in 2007, and vast numbers of people have suffered substantial losses.
Those of you who listened to our warnings to exit the market before the bubble burst and who invested where we directed them not only were preserved from major losses, but also made substantial gains. Some portfolios are up over 200 percent as compared to the Dow, S&P, and NASDAQ, with losses up to over 60 percent. Now we see the economies of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay collapsing like dominoes, a record number of major U.S. companies going bankrupt, the highest number of personal bankruptcies in U.S. history, possible war brewing in the Middle East and elsewhere, and the value of the dollar declining, all which affect world markets. Where does one invest to preserve their assets? Gold and silver!
Why Invest in Gold?
God's money is inflation proof!!!
Gold is good. In Gen. 2:12 God declares that gold is good because He created it. Paper money, referred to as "your wealth" will be consumed. Also, our so-called paper money is really made from a mixture of paper and cloth, which is referred to as "rag." Interesting that our righteousness is always referred to as "filthy rags" in scripture.
Gold is tested by fire. I Cor. 3:12 tells us that the foundation and quality of our lives will be tested by fire. Notice gold and silver are simply purified by fire, but wood, hay, and stubble are consumed and loss is suffered. Need we say more?
Gold is a sign of power and blessing. Throughout history the ruling class has always sought to own gold and silver because they represent purity and longevity. Gold and silver are precious because they are scarce; they cannot be counterfeited by man. God commanded that the tabernacle in the OT and the New Jerusalem in the NT were to be built of gold, not paper. (Ex. 25 & Rev. 21)
Gold & Silver belong to God alone. Hag. 2:8 tells us that "the silver is mine and the gold is mine saith the Lord." This cannot be said of man's counterfeit credit instruments which are contrary to God's commandment that we use a just weight and measure in our transactions.
What is the Biblical view of Gold and Silver?
"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be;
and that which is done is that which shall be done:
and there is no new thin under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
The first mention of Gold in the Bible is in Genesis 2:11-12. Gold in the land of Havilah gets the endorsement of being "good". God created gold to be the foundation of an economic system that would be solid, stable and not subject to manipulation. No inflation, no deflation, and no monetary crisis. History has called this biblically oriented monetary system, "The Gold Standard", meaning an economic system that is based on a specific, established amount of gold or silver.
God is the author of the gold standard, not man. In the Scriptures, He established the weights, the measurements and set the value of gold and silver. He created this monetary law in order to protect the poor and to keep the greed and manipulative power of Rulers under control.
Proverbs 16:11 - "A just weight and balance are the Lord's: all the weights of the bag are his work." This verse declares that God is the source of the economic system.
Proverbs 11:1 - "A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight."
Deuteronomy 25:13-15 - "Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small. Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small. But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee." These declarations make it clear that "money" is not a secular issue but a spiritual issue.
Leviticus 27:25 - "And all thy estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel." Plainly, this verse is talking about The Gold Standard. In our system we say, sixteen ounces to the pound, and in theirs it was twenty gerahs to a shekel
There is no Hebrew word for money. Silver was used for normal transactions and gold, which was worth twenty times as much as silver, was used more as a store of value. For More Information go to: http://recyclingyourdollarsonline.com
