16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
The above verses of Revelation are some of the most well known in the Christian Bible. They foretell of a future where the average citizen is part of a worldwide economic / political system that requires membership to participate in the buying and selling of all goods. I imagine such a future must have seemed hard to imagine for Christians just a few generations ago. However, today with all our finances in digital form and duly reported to the government by our employers, banks, and starting in 2011 even eBay will start reporting sales by its vendors to Uncle Sam, the monolithic central control envisioned by the verses in Revelation 13 seem frighteningly plausible!
How can the average bible-believing Christian prepare for the ominous future ahead when faced with the awesome power of the future antichrist's regime? In a few words, gold and silver. Gold and silver have been valued by mankind for over 5000 years of civilization. The government fears and distrusts gold and silver for many reasons, chief of which is the ability of the two precious metals to provide a trading currency that is outside its control and purview. An owner of gold and silver coins, whether they be 90% junk silver American coins minted before 1965, American Silver Eagles, or metal rounds and bars, possesses a means to provide for his family without forced submission to the Antichrist's all-encompassing system of economic control.
If you don't own gold and silver, buy what you can afford ASAP! The life and souls of your family may well be at stake!
PS. I want to comment on 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".
Firstly, the verse is referring to the literal end of the world. In particular, the lines chastise those who covet and love gold & silver money above all things. It promises that no relief will be found for such materialists on that fearful day in earthy possessions. However, until that day arrives (like a thief in the night), we will still be expected to clothe and feed our families and ourselves to the best of our abilities. History tells us that gold and silver have served mankind well for over 5000 years in the capacity of "real money", and should continue to be of value for as long as needed.
Time is running out fast! Hyperinflation seems unavoidable as fiat paper money is being printed as fast as the US presses can run. To protect your wealth and your family, buy gold and silver now from these top companies, APMEX Gold and Silver and GoldSilver.com.
