When the Israelites left Egypt, the Egyptians were commanded to give them gifts of gold for their upcoming encounter with the Lord. The Egyptians obliged, and showered the Israelites with tons of gold and precious stones that were used to build the arc of the covenant and other implements of worship. When Moses commanded the Israelites to bring forth their gifts of gold so that he could build the necessary implements of worship, the Israelites gave massive amounts of gold and he commanded them to stop the donations, and to keep the remainder for themselves.
Both the Israelites and the Egyptians understood that when you (or someone close to you) have an upcoming encounter with the Lord, you must welcome the Lord with alms for yourself, or on behalf of the person close to you. The Lord is not impoverished, however, when he enters into our world, he must align not only with us, but also with our sources of physical power. Jesus Of Nazareth will not be revealed to a world that believes in hoarding its wealth. When we have a healthy attachment to wealth, it flows generously. Money is indeed the root of all evil, and until our relationship to money is healed, the world cannot be healed.
The Lord God Jesus Of Nazareth will not endure the indignity of the cross, suffering the cruel fate decreed by the devil, and return to a world that hoards its wealth so as to uphold another one of the devil's decrees--dire poverty. The Lord God Almighty will destroy the wealth of the devil's accomplices, if necessary, in order to level the playing field.
The Lord God Almighty El Shaddai
