Those who are storing gold in vaults that can’t be penetrated by nuclear bombs should read the following Bible verses:
13 “Someone in the crowd said to Him, ‘Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.’ 14 But He said to him, ‘Man, who appointed Me a judge or arbitrator over you?’ 15 Then He said to them, ‘Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.’ 16 And He told them a parable, saying, ‘The land of a rich man was very productive. 17 And he began reasoning to himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?’ 18 Then he said, ‘This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, ‘Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.’ 20 But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’ 21 So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.’” -Luke 12
I think things are lining up exactly the way the Bible predicts. There will eventually be a one world government where an attempt will be made to control all economic activity (The Mark of the Beast). Will Christians be raptured out of the world before the Great Tribulation of Matthew 24 begins? I don’t know. However, I lean towards this view as it seems to be the best explanation I can currently give for how I understand scripture. Whatever happens, gold and guns won’t save your soul. I must make it clear that I am not against the 2nd amendment. In fact, I think it is an important part of our Constitution. And I am not against using what one possesses in a wise, God-pleasing manner. At the same time, a person can only serve one master.
The verses of Luke 12 quoted above may worry some. The verses of Luke 12 quoted below may worry some. I am particularly comforted by the section below.
12 “Under these circumstances, after so many thousands of people had gathered together that they were stepping on one another, He began saying to His disciples first of all, ‘Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. 3 Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.
4 ‘I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him! 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two cents? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God. 7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
8 ‘And I say to you, everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Man will confess him also before the angels of God; 9 but he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God. 10 And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him. 11 When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say; 12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.’” -Luke 12
What a comfort! God will give us the words to say if and when we need them. He also knows you better than you know yourself. Ever try and count the hairs on your head?
Note: I have put Egon up because he is an expert in the financial world. His geo-political comments towards the beginning of this interview are questionable. He needs to stick to his area of expertise and that’s why I have posted this. His view of upcoming financial possibilities fit well with my understanding of end time Biblical events.
Note 2: In fairness to Egon, after viewing the section for the 3rd time where he is speaking about things he is not an expert about, HE WAS ONLY ANSWERING QUESTIONS THAT GREG HAD ASKED HIM. He could have declined to answer but don’t we all have an opinion?
