Let’s dive straight into the 7 things God called good in the book of Genesis:
2- LAND & SEAS
4-STARS, SEASONS & THE SUN RISE/SUNSET
5-SEA ANIMALS & BIRDS
Gold? According to scripture:
A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. The gold of that land is good; a romatic resin and onyx are also there. – Genesis 2:11-12
When God called the gold of that land good, He precisely mentioned THAT land. Translating into gold from there is good- but in other lands, not good.
What God is telling us is clear: Gold is good, depending on how you move it.
Often I would hear people complain about money. “Oh, I hate money! If there wasn’t any money in the world, there will be peace!”
But it would be those same individuals who “hate money” but always seems to have their hands in your pocket. Funny how that works.
Keep in mind as well what the true alternative to money is…. a gun.*
No, removing money from society will not create peace. Just take a look at people, neighborhoods or even countries who lack it. It is a war zone. Money is actually the foundation to our Civilization. Money is a spiritual transaction among spiritual beings. The only way money works- if one has Faith to back it up.
The people who shout against money are really shouting out against the Creator. He called it good, you call it evil. Yes- I will stick to the Creator’s truth.
The gold in the land is good…
What’s interesting about this is the true currency is gold. Why gold? Surely there are other metals, rubies and diamonds with worth. But it seems gold is always the true form of currency. Why is it?
Because God said so. That is why.
Gold has been valuable (and will always be) for thousands of years. The only reason why it is desirable and never gets out of style is because of God.
Money is a good thing, depending on how you use it and how you acquired it. Ask God to bless your bread.
MEANING BEHIND BREAD: Bread is a symbol of money. Did you ever notice the relations your parents had with bread? Usually the bread had RSVP at the dinner table. This isn’t accidental. When you were a child and wasted a sandwich or bread roll- this angered them. They wouldn’t have reacted this way if you didn’t finish your popcorn or mashed potatoes. But the bread has a spiritual meaning. It is symbol of your father’s labor. You might have heard of the saying “Hey, you have any dough on yah?” “Bread and honey.” Or “I have no bread on me at the moment.” Bread is a symbol of money because it takes a community to develop it. Therefore, everyone will chip in. Everyone will work. Everyone will make money.
When the Lord’s children are working in harmony together and creating wealth in the land- this pleases and honors Him.
