Is it a good time to buy gold or silver or is it the worst time in history to buy gold or silver? Opinions will vary. I would like to express my personal opinion and my personal understanding of Bible prophecies that will soon be fulfilled that show that it is the worst time in human history to buy gold or silver.
Gold and silver have always been precious metals because of their beauty and have always been given a high monetary value. What is more beautiful than a gold ring or a silver bracelet?
Some people have been willing to selleven their souls to get their hands on these valuable commodities. Notice what Judas Iscariot was willing to do to get is hands on a few pieces of silver? Read Matthew 26:14-16.
Even today many are buying gold and silver and think that it will offer protection in a future economic crash that some expect to happen in the not too distant future. From a human point of view that may seem like a logical and reasonable thing to do.
However God’s word, the Bible, gives a different point of view. Read carefully Zephaniah 1:14-18 and Ezekiel 7:19. We are living at a time where God will soon call to account the whole human race. We have filled the earth with violence,
Most of the time it is for money, gold, and silver and the things these will buy!
What is really valuable, human life and dignity is given little respect. Things that are of very little importance in the eternal scheme of things are given great value, while what is really valuable is given little attention and time.
We reap what we sow, that is a universal law that cannot be changed.
The prophecies show that very soon gold and silver will be thrown into the very streets as valueless. In the end, when it really counts, gold and silver will not buy any favor with God. We are better off using our time and resources to buy time to dig into the word of God and find spiritual treasures which have far greater value where it really counts, and that is with God!
