Over the last decade, more and more people have advised buying gold and silver as a safety mechanism. They recommend them as a way to store wealth when the inevitable global economic collapse occurs. The Bible mentions gold and silver often. Adonai, the Creator of the universe, is the One who gave these things value. He created gold and silver, proclaimed them to have value and thus, they have always been valuable throughout history. However, in the Biblical last days, these precious metals will not save anyone. They may be beneficial in some respects, temporarily, but they are not where we should put our ultimate trust. Only YHWH through His Son, Yeshua the Messiah, can bring real salvation. Read the prophecy below from Ezekiel. As with many Biblical prophecies, it seems to have multiple fulfillments, one that has already happened (directed specifically at Israel) and potentially another yet to come (which may have wide-spread application).
They will throw their silver into the streets; their gold will be like something unclean. On the day of Adonai’s wrath their silver and gold won’t be able to rescue them. These things won’t satisfy their hunger, these things won’t fill their stomachs, because these are what caused them to sin. ~~ Ezekiel 7:19
