ELDORADO

Hello again folks! Did you know that in 1988 that a pint of milk cost 26p and that a loaf of bread cost 30p?
I'm told that according to the Old Testament; during the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar an ounce of gold bought 350 loaves of bread.
Now, if an ounce of gold today is about £450 and I paid £1.19 for a loaf of bread on Friday, you can see that its purchasing power has been maintained for over 3,000 years!
Yet in the UK, measured in bread, the pound’s purchasing power has declined quite substantially while gold's spending prowess has held steady.
Even though gold is a good investment tip ... gold won't save you from the Mark of the Beast '666' that is on its way.
We read in Revelation chapter 13; verse 16 - "Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead..."
The written Word tells us: "Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have rusted, and their rust will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure for the last days." [James chapter 5; verses 1-3]
The Living Word told us: "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. [Matthew chapter 6; verses 19-21]
Time to get our priorities right me thinks ... while we still have money or cash!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... KeithJS ... 10-Aug-2008
