God’s gold, riches and wealth are above and beyond measure in comparison to any human being. Menorah lamp stand is 45kg gold from 24 carat gold ready to use in the Temple for Jesus’ Second Coming. The menorah is a symbol of the light of revelation of God’s Truth. God commanded Moses to make it out of gold according to the pattern shown him on Mount Sinai. Gold symbolizes precious great value and a metaphor for purity in Bible. The fire in a Menorah represents the fire of the Divine Light spread from Israel. God is consuming fire is symbolic of God refining people to be as fine gold. God is the refiner and purifier. HE will purifies the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. And the LORD’S men bring offerings cheerfully in righteousness in Malachi 3:3 with a pure heart and conscience. God does not want people exploited in His Name for no reason. Smelted gold poured in moulds removes dross. 7 lamps lit in Menorah is seven Spirits of God Jews know seven stands for perfection or completion. The Book of Revelation on the seven golden lamps standing before God seen by John “I turned to see the voice speaking with me in the midst of 7 golden lamp stands in Revelation 1:12. Saw Jesus by 7 golden lamp stands talking about 7 churches of 7 congregations in Asia Minor in Book of Revelation 1:10–11, 20. God warned, He will remove the lamp stand of any congregation if they continue in sin and refuse to repent. Yeshua told the church at Ephesus I am coming to you and will remove your lamp stand out of its place unless you repent and purified like gold in Revelation 2:5. Jesus’ followers grow in obedience shining by love, joy, peace more and more like Yeshua the beacon of hope. Gold is so important to God HE uses gold for the crown of a high priest, Temple cups, vases, bowls, altars, ark so streets of heaven are pure hold. All gold belongs to God and people are stewards so know the Source of Gold is from God.Temple of God is inlaid with Gold and is obeyed in purity by high priest or is killed by God. Our attitudes or speech and ministry refined like gold. In the Parasha Levites serving God in Temple to be clean or purified before beginning their ministry. “The LORD told Moses, ‘Take Levites from among children of Israel to clean them ceremonially. Told clean them by sprinkling holy water of purification on them. Let them shave all their body and wash their clothes, make themselves clean in Numbers 8:5–7. God took Levites in place of first born spared during 10 plagues in Egypt. Most defiled their hearts and spirits by worshipping golden calf. The Levites did not worship the calf so stayed faithful and true to the God of Israel. Reward is work in service in Tabernacle not Israel’s firstborn sons. Levites from age 25–50 qualify to serve in Tabernacle. After 50 Levites retire from active duty can stand guard, sing, lock gates and load wagons do not serve in Tabernacle. In 1 Kings 7:51, after all work done in King Solomon’s Temple for the LORD, all the vessels, were gold and stored them intreasuries of the house of LORD. Solomon is so rich he used gold to build parts of the temple decorations.In 1 Kings 10:21, 2 Chronicles 9:20, All King Solomon’s goblets were gold, and all King Solomon’s drinking vessels were of gold, and all vessels of the House of Forest of Lebanon pure gold so nothing made from silver not valuable. All King Solomon’s drinking vessels were of gold, and all vessels of the House of the Forest of Lebanon pure gold. God has enriched people in the Bible made very wealthy from richest man Adam who owned the whole world entrusted to him. So other examples of Godly people blessed with great wealth. Solomon is one of greatest examples in the bible God blessed with wealth. Its recorded Solomon surpassed all kings on earth in riches and wisdom in 2 Chronicles 9:22. He had so much gold and wealth in his time the value of silver became worthless in 2 Chronicles 9:20. God gave Solomon, the son of King David, wisdom of MORE understanding, a heart to judge children of Israel. God blessed him making him rich. Solomon saw God appear to him offered to give him anything he asked for in 1 Kings 3:5. He requested wisdom vrs 9 to fulfil responsibilities as king over all Israel. God’s response to his selfless request is so amazing and so unique in vrs 12 God Promised to do as asked gave Solomon more wisdom and understanding than all. In vrs 13 God gave Solomon what he didn’t ask for all his life had wealth and honour, more than any other kings in 1 Kings 3:10-13. God made David’s son the wisest richest and wealthiest king that ever lived. Through commerce, trading, gifts received tribute money paid to him and heavy taxation. King Solomon built fleet of ships at Ezion Geber. Hiram king of Tyre sent servants with fleet, seamen who knew the sea to work with servants of Solomon. Went to Ophir and acquired 420 talents of gold in1Kings 9:26-28. And King David is blessed by God, praised and worshipped God. The psalms give insight into mindset of David on wealth. He wrote God’s seed sower never begs bread in Psalm 37:25. Recognised God as provider in Psalm 23:1 and proclaimed in time of famine righteous have more than enough in Psalm 37:19. David, man after God’s own heart in Acts 13:22 loves David lived to old age enjoyed long life, wealth and honour in Chronicles 29:28.And Joseph was a prosperous man ever before his material wealth was evident in Genesis 39:2. Despite his challenges, Joseph displayed humility of good moral character. God remembered Joseph and turned evil to his good so by the time he was 30 years old is second in command over the whole of Egypt. Bible records he gathered money in Egypt by selling grain in Genesis 47:14. Through wisdom God placed Joseph able to foresee future economy of the land and save country. And Abraham walked with God is called a friend of God in James 2:23. God likes super rich friends because bible states Abraham was very rich in silver, cattle and gold in Genesis 13:2. God continued to prosper him as he grew greater and God blessed him in everyway in Genesis 24:1. He had many servants forms own army to go to battle in Genesis 14:14. Abraham was blessed to be a blessing, his material wealth grew so large he and nephew Lot parted ways because the land could no longer accommodate them in Genesis 13:6. Those of faith are also blessed like faithful Abraham.Isaac and his father walk in Abrahamic covenant spiritual blessing and material riches during time of famine or dryness Isaac prospered. Others suffered lack yet Isaac sowed in the land reaped 100 fold harvest in Genesis 26:12. Isaac grew great the Philistines envied him forced to leave the land. Carried the blessing with him in Genesis 26:17-32. Job in the bible a righteous man in Job 1:1 blessed by God had wealth, possessions, known as the greatest man in East in Job 1:3. In spite turmoil, Job remained loyal so God restored his fortunes giving him double wealth in Job 42:10. Matthew 19:23-24, Mark 10:25, and Luke 18:25, Jesus said it is easier for a camel to enter the eye of a needle than rich enter Kingdom of God than camel to go through eye of needle.One of the gates in Jerusalem named The Eye of the Needle,” is difficult to negotiate its quite small. Jesus said Its “had for rich man to enter Kingdom of Heaven to tag wealth into gates of God’s Kingdom. Trust and confidence in money, assets, riches more than in God. Eye of the Needle narrow gateway in Jerusalem with camels heavily loaded with goods and riders un-loaded to pass through. Analogy is rich man to unload material possessions to enter heaven its pointing to narrowness of heaven gate a rich man needs to be free himself of his possessions to enter paradise. Eye of the needle in Damascus a side main gate of the “street called straight.” The side gate not intended to pass by animals camels carrying side loads. Impossible a camel go through with extra baggage no need for in salvation to heaven. All who cling to wealth above God cannot buy God as Jesus taught by relating Gospel message to understand and remember. Jesus was talking of needle because the principle forcing camel into narrow gate exactly similar to trying to push a literal camel through a sewing needle. A Greek word “eye”means hole of sewing needle. God treats rich or poor by salvation in Jesus, God provides way in Christ for the rich people to enter Heaven. The rich people by faith in Christ by God’s grace, mercy power and trust in Christ. Confidence in a bank account, jobs, pensions, material possessions will not save into heaven.Rich people’s source of wealth belongs to God so do not deprive God’s children from God’s super abundant provisions on earth. Jesus says the wealth creation is to bless people fairly wealth must not cause sorrow, loss, pain, grief, deprive others to enrich themselves by greed. So wealth pursuit not cost earth to destroy people. Genuine wealth creation in God cannot serve God and mammon money riches. It costs millions of dollars to run Church, pay staff, maintain premises or sustain less fortunate God Provide. The income for Church is necessary but not sole message of prosperity at expense of God or Bible study. Jesus is provided for by rich friends, families who prepare a place and meals for disciples. Jesus tells believers, rely on God to provide needs according to God’s Riches in Glory in Christ Jesus. Rich Fool in Luke 12:13–21 in Bible was evil, wicked stingy refused to share food harvested freely died and better to give than receive. Giving more makes Rich but rich fool misunderstood God’s Provisions by greed is self-serving of superabundance. Entrusted by God as steward did not respect or fear God the owner of all silver, gold and cattle on a 1000 hills as the conduit to bless many people. Selfishly aggrandized himself to take all made more austerity plans to dupe people. God took his life that night and called him a rich fool because had more money than sense. Those in places of authority by audacity put trust and confidence in money, causing financial hardships, suffering, death by austerity measures, God is shaking nations. Take back by Divine rule on earth in Jesus Christ. God’s owns all wealth and riches so honour God the Great Provider who provides countless zillion resources for all priceless creation God blessed with HIS riches for all to freely enjoy.
1. Adam, Eve in Paradise
Adam and Eve were first richest people on earth in Genesis 1 and 2. God blessed them in Genesis 1:28 with the best lands abundant resources God said, good very good. They had all wealth, riches, gold, onyx, bdellium cornelian stone, topax, aromatic resin topaz. Ezekiel 28:13 says Eden garden has all kinds of precious stones, jewelry brightly coloured gem stones. They were given wealth beyond measure to live and enjoy. And orchard fruits of creation in the fertile crescent. The idyllic Garden and Eden’s riches has the most fertile land and prospered in every sense. God provided abundant of resources and means to flourish so God blessed them in Genesis 1:28. In Genesis 2:10-15 a stream flowing in Eden garden parts as four rivers of Tigris, Euphrates, Gihon White Nile and Pison Blue Nile. It is the riches part of the earth a paradise land with landscape of best resources God said is “good very good.”
2. Noah Ark Flood
In Genesis 5:32-10:1 Noah was 500 years old, a righteous man 10 And three sons Shem, Ham and Japheth. 11 Earth full of violence. 12 God became angry regrets creating mankind. 13 God told Noah I will destroy people for evil on earth. 14 Told build an ark of cypress woods coat with pitch 15 three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide, thirty cubits high. 16 A roof opening one cubit high a side door lower, middle and upper decks. 17 The floodwaters will destroy life all perish. 18 My covenant with you so enter ark with your family. 19 Take pairs of living creatures, male and female. 20 All kinds of creatures alive. Stock food to eat and food for animals. 22 Noah did what God said built ark in 100 years. Seven days later rained forty days and nights. Evil rebellous refused to enter ark wiped all evil from earth. At Noah’s six hundred years on seventeenth day second month great spring deepburst forth floodgates of heavens opened so rain fell on earth forty days and forty nights. Water rose lifted ark above earth. 18 Ark floated on water to high mountains fifteen cubits. 21 All left behind on land perished 24 So Flood lasted hundred fifty days. Genesis 10:1 God told Noah wind made water to recede 2 rain stopped 3 on seventeenth day of seventh month 4 ark rested on mountains Ararat. 5 Waters recedes till tenth month tops of mountains visible. 6 On fortieth day ark window opened by Noah 7 sent raven back and forth 8 Two dove sent 9 Doves returned to Noah 10 After seven days 21 Dove brought olive leaf. Water receded on earth. 12 Seven days larer dove didn’t return. 13 On first day of month water dried. 14 So twenty seventh day of second month God told Noah, 16 Come from ark with all 17 God blessed them to multiply be fruitful and increase in number.” 18 Noah came out family. 19 And animals. 20 Noah built altar to the LORD took clean animals and birds sacrificed burnt offerings. 21 The LORD smelled aroma said will “Not destroy by flood 22 Earth has seedtime, harvest, cold, heat, summer, winter, day night not cease.” God’s Covenant saved Noah’s family owned ship and all earth.
In the book of Job 1:1 in the Old Testament, Job was described to be a righteous man. Job 1:3 further describes him as the most illustrious man in the East because of his vast material possessions. In spite of his personal conflicts, Job showed his immense loyalty to God. In Job 42:10, he was given richness which surpassed what he previously owned because he remained steadfast in his belief even though he faced so many challenges in his life.
Abraham patriarch of Israel and church friend of God in James 2:23, Genesis 13: 2, Abraham’s rich gold, silver, cattle and his material possessions a multi-billion business. Abraham’s faith in the LORD grew stronger despite great possessions. Genesis 13:6 and 24:1 says God blessed him accumulated wealth, servants had to separate from his rich nephew Lot as land too small for both. So all associated with Abraham had material wealth.
In Genesis 12:10-20,Genesis 26:1-11 the wife of Abraham in Egypt due to famine
made rich by her beauty attracted the wrong attention of kings. Pretended to be Abraham’s sister not to be killed king tried to seduce her. Pharaoh took her to his palace treated Abraham well for her sake. Gave Abraham sheep, cattle, male, female donkeys, carmels, servants the LORD inflicted diseases on Pharaoh’s household because of Sarah. Abraham and left with material gifts wealth, gold, silver, men, women servants and Hagar from Egypt Ethiopian Ishmael’s mother.
God told Abraham his covenant to Isaac but Ishmael will blessed and make him fruitful to multiply him exceedingly. The twelve princes of Ishmael makes him a great nation in Genesis 17. Ishmaelites Mohammedan Muslims are the Ishmael descendant oil rich nations of the world.
Abraham’s son Isaac was blessed with great wealth. In the times of famine he prospered. Genesis 26:12, says Isaac had planted crops and harvested a hundred times more than others. His wealth was envy of Philistines who forced him to leave his land. In Genesis 26:17-32 Isaac received blessings wherever he went.
Jacob in Genesis 25–50 run from home met God, fed by angels in Jacob’s ladder. Worked for uncle Laban near Euphrates became rich. The LORD blessed Laban because of Jacob so flocks, herds grew, wealth increased. Sheep goats, speckled, spotted, black serve father in law Laban fourteen years as shepherd prospers so rich envied by Laban. In Genesis 31:3, 32:10 Jacob after 20 years left to meet Esau in Seir land of Edom. Jacob owned cattle, donkeys, flocks of sheep, goats so many servants, men and women. Esau on way to meet Jacob had army of 400 men. Jacob divides household and flocks camels in two groups prayed, God of my grandfather Abraham God of my father, Isaac LORD you said Return to your the land so treat us kindly.” At Padan-Aram, Jacob’s family in two camps if one taken other to escape in Genesis 32:8-9. Jacob crossed Jacob met Esau in Genesis 33:4. In Genesis 33:3, 33:10-11, Jacob’s gifts to Esau to appease him at first refused is but accepted. Jacob’s name changed to Israel after wrestling angel of God on way to meet Esau. Jacob crossed Jabbok, met Esau in Genesis 33:4. Esau from Mount Seir in Genesis 33:12-16, Jacob’s bands went to Succoth Shalem city of Shechem, Esau to Seir in Genesis 33:16-20. Jacob and Esau buried their father, Isaac in Hebron in Genesis 35:27-29.
Genesis 33:9, I have enough. Esau’s response to Jacob proves he didn’t care for his birthright or covenant Elohim made with his father or grandfather. Esau a worldly man of materialism and sensual pleasure did not seek any God spiritual pursuits rich in his own right.
11. Joseph Jacob’s Son
Joseph in Egypt was a wealthy man who became victim of envy a humble person in spite of his wealth. At age 30, he was second in command in Egypt. In Genesis 47:14, amassed great for Egypt’s wealth by selling grains. Joseph was blessed not with business acumen and had a strong economic outlook so was able to look at the future and saves his country and all nations from famine. Joseph built silos to store grain seven years before next seven years of famine. So God enriched Joseph to enrich others, blessed through him. His father Jacob, eleven sons with wives and children all seventy joined Joseph in Egypt at Goshen. Became rich in Egypt multiplied into millions hated 430 years by Egypt’s Pharaoh who didn’t know Joseph helped Egypt.
12. The Twelve Sons of Jacob-Israel
Jacob’s sons are blessed by God named after land of Israel on ancient maps. So twelve sons by four women, his wives, Leah, Rachel, concubines Bilhah, Zilpah: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan and Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, Benjamin of 12 tribes of Israel.

So all people on earth will know God and He will dwell on earth among men on a perfect. Jews and Gentiles are grafted in Christ as one no more divisions in God’s NEW PERFECT LOVE ONE BIG FAMILY.
God uses gemstones to construct walls of New Jerusalem ìn related to twelve apostles. Gem colours vary due to range of gemstones but God knows all tribes. The City prepared as bride adorned for her husband in Revelation 21:2. So New Jerusalem descends in Israel in a new earth as all evil purged from universe in Revelation 20. The twelve gemstones in High Priest’s breastplate engraved of twelve tribes of Israel in Exodus 28:21, 39:14 New Jerusalem names inscribed for eternity on city’s twelve gates from one pearl in Revelation 21:12-13, 21.

Boaz gave food to his workers allowed her to work in his fields during harvest, everyday. Boaz knew Naomi relative by Jewish law had right to marry Ruth off a widow to Boaz. Naomi encouraged Ruth go to Boaz for a marriage proposal from him. Boaz got permission from the man in line to marry Ruth told the leaders he will marry Ruth. Boaz and Ruth married and had son Obed.

Boaz father of Obed his mother Ruth his son Jesse father of King David. Ruth and Boaz through tragic situations changed lives of others. God works through Ruth poor widow foreigner as Esther in God’s plan for Jesus. God’s sovereign power is seen in salvation plan of son of David.
David is associated with Goliath in epic battle as small child who defeated giant with slingshot. David’s prosperity from God plus gift from Saul for his defeat of Goliath because of his faith in God had amounts of wealth possessed. In Psalms 37:19, proclaimed righteous still prosper in the midst of famine. So happened to David and his brethren in 1 Chronicles 29:28, David enjoyed a life of prosperity, blessed with wealth, honour and died living a rich life full of contentment.
In Bible God gave Solomon wealth for building the kingdom and he built God’s Temple and cities. Solomon multiplied gold, silver, horses, wives for himself, in disobedience to God’s command built idol temples for his pagan wives and his concubines. In 2 Chronicles 1:11 God said to Solomon, “Since you prayed for wisdom not riches or kill your enemies God gave Solomon wisdom, knowledge, riches, wealth, honour. In 1 Kings 3:11 God blessed Solomon so unmatched by anyone. Solomon of Israel’s peak net is worth $2 trillion (£1.42trn). Solomon ruled from 970 BC to 931 BC, received 25 tons of gold for 39 years of his reign, worth billions of dollars in 2020 and the tributes from provinces. Solomon a wise king had enormous material possession in 2 Chronicles 9:20 he had gold, silver so much it lost its value. His wealth still looked for in hidden treasures caused various expeditions launched in search of his treasures. Crusaders to Holy Land said to look for Solomon’s treasures. The lineage of Templar Knights are said to be hiding his treasures to protect them.
16. Queen of Sheba from Ethiopia
The queen of Sheba from Ethiopia has great wealth of gold riches brought gifts to Solomon in Israel. 1 Kings 10:10 says she gave the king 120 talents of gold and great quantity of priceless spices. A gift of 9,000 pounds of gold, great quantities of precious jewels. The Queen of Sheba gave Solomon more than four tons of gold sent gifts each year to build Temple of God on Table Mount in Jerusalem. So King Solomon gave Queen of Sheba gifts and all her desires in 1 Kings 10:13. And she gave birth to Meneleck Jewish royal family of Ethiopia.
17 Proverbs 31 Bible Wealthy Women
Proverbs 31:10-31 woman wife of noble character is worth more than rubies. 11 Her husband trusts her. 12 She brings in goods all her life. 13 Selects wool, flax, works with hands like 14 merchant ship brings food from far.15 Gets up at dawn provides food for family, servants.

These people in Bible are faithful to God in spite of the trials and difficulties faced. They live a life of prosperity so blessed the next generations enjoy inheritance parents leave for a future descendants. Money is part of resources from God.
