From Riches to Rags and Rags to Riches, Part 1 of 2

Let’s face it, from an early age many of us learned the great value of money. I remember as a kid getting 35 cents a week for doing chores and we thought that was great! Of course, things were much cheaper back then. But the idea of what money could do was engrained in our minds from an early age. This would only get more firm and desirable as we grew up.

Yet our loving God warns us many times about the love of money. Yes, He even uses heathens to warn. In fact there was a popular hit song made in 1978, despite being heathen and worldly in nature, its message NAILS what money does to many, it’s holding power —

“Are you under the power of Gold?”

Before we begin we are reminded that the Word tells us that money can be a trap.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1 Tim. 6:10)

“And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou will enter into life, keep the Commandments.

He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? Jesus said unto him, If thou will be perfect, go and sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” (Matt; 19:16-24)


In today’s world, we generally know who is the “richest of the rich”. Forbes magazine annually publishes the top 100 richest people on earth. Only one dirty little secret. They leave out the “real” richest ones! Do the Rothschilds ring a bell? They should, for their family basically created the modern world’s banking system in the early 1800s. They and the Rockefellers, for example, are truly the richest of the rich today. There exist about 7 or 8 closely-knit families (aka dynasties) that basically control most of the world’s money (Gold, Silver, the printing presses, etc.)

As some know, the Rothschilds have Biblical significance as well, due to their control of Great Britain for centuries. The “queen” is just a figurehead as many know. Great Britain in the end times is called the king of the North, along with the other Assyrian nations (USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, France for example). Thus the USA is a leader among the Assyrian nations and is considered KON by this connection. However the Elijah message tells us —

“Plainly then, during the time of the end Great Britain is the king of the north …”(1 TG, no. 4, p.22)

“Because of idolatry, the Assyrian was permitted to take God’s ancient people and their pleasant land. And certain it is that the Assyrian will control the land just so long as God’s people continue in idolatry. But, just as soon as all idols are cast aside, — yes, as soon as the great revival and reformation takes place in the hearts of the people, — then the Assyrian (the power that now rules them) shall certainly fall, and God’s people shall just as certainly return. The Assyrian shall thus fall, not at the sword of a mighty man, and not of a mean man, but “through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.” Isa. 30:31. (1 TG, no.33, p.4-5)

Also In Daniel, we know that the King of the North ( Identification key to the KON — Tract 12, p.86-87) will be VERY rich, for it says —

“But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt..” (Daniel 11:43)

Who today basically runs much of the world’s wealth? You got it the Rothschild’s banking empire, its tentacles far-reaching into nearly every nation (North Korea and Iran, being two exceptions).

So what has this riches to rags idea have to do with end times? Verse 45 of Daniel tells us —

“And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.”

You see brethren, soon the most powerful men by virtue of their riches shall be brought down! Their rulership shall soon cease! In fact, many of those caught in that web of desire for riches shall meet up with this Word of God and fulfill it —

“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” (Isaiah 2:20-21)

Thus, the rich are soon to become poor. Rothschilds, Rockerfellers, and all the wealthy men of the earth will no longer hold the power they now have, the world’s power structure will turn to the meek and lowly, yet RICH in God’s Word and power! And even riches too!

In the next post, we’ll discuss the “rags to riches” part.
