Gold and Silver are Worthless

Isaiah 2:6-8 The Lord has abandoned His people – the House of Jacob [the 12 tribes of Israel] They are full of superstitions from the East, and occult practices. Their lands are rich, with no end to their vehicles. They have many idols and they worship what they have made.

Isaiah 2:9-18 So, mankind will be brought low, everyone will be humbled. The Lord will not forgive nor forget their sins. On the Day of the Lord’s judgement, the Lord alone will be exalted, all the pride of men will be brought low. Their idols will utterly pass away.

Isaiah 2:19-22 Creep into caves and try to hide from the dread manifestation of the Lord when He arises to strike the world with terror. On that Day, people will fling away their idols, that they have made, to the dung beetles and bats. They will panic and attempt to escape, when the Lord comes to shake the earth. Do not rely on mere mortals. What are they worth?

Isaiah 31:6-7 Israel, you have been deeply disloyal, yet, come back to your God. For on the Day of deliverance, you will spurn your idols of gold and silver, gained by the work of your hands.

Israel and Judah were scattered in exile because of their sins. Now, they are following atheism and false gods. They are wealthy, but they worship materialism. They are scattered amongst all the Western nations, including the Jewish State of Israel. Today, it is all the faithful Christian people who are deemed to be the Israelites of God. Romans 9:6-8 & 24-26,  Galatians 3:26-29

On the Day of the Lords vengeance and wrath, all people will be judged. Rev. 6:12-17, 1 Cor. 3:13-15  Those who are  arrogant and proud will be brought low.

The time must come for God to restore His Creation. This process will be done in several steps. Firstly a Day of Judgement: cleansing His Land and people. Deuteronomy 32:40-43, Isaiah 63:4.

A terrifying judgement of fire will be caused by an explosion of the sun, striking the earth. Isaiah 30:26-28, Malachi 4:1-3, Ezekiel 7:1-19. This event will mostly affect the Middle East, destroying those nations about to attack Israel. There will be no nuclear exchange, as that would cause radiation pollution in the Land.

Some of the worldwide repercussions will be; oil shortages, communications disrupted, refugee problems, food shortages and economic meltdown.

As prophesied, Christian Israel will gather and settle in all of the holy Land. Ezekiel 20:34-38, Ezekiel 34:11-31. But the stage will be set for a One World Government to be established, soon to be ruled by a dictator. Daniel 8:23-26.

Later, will come the Millennium reign of Jesus and finally the new heavens and the new earth. Revelation 21.

Revelation 3:18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire to make you truly rich and white robe to put on to hide the shame of your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes that you may see.

In this passage in Revelation, Jesus advises all of us to obtain the gold of His salvation, the white clothes of His righteousness and the ointment of wisdom to understand His Word.
