Revival in the church can only begin and continue when the people of God experience a renewal within their hearts and a transfomation of their minds. This can never happen unless the Word of God comes alive in us and the practicing of it becomes first nature through us. In and of itself Revival is but a beginning and 'new life' through Christ a starting point to greater things in His Name. As we begin to experience more of the 'beginning of sorrows' God waits to use a people unafraid and unashamed to walk in His Word. It will never be easier than it is today, for the Word itself tells us that the days will grow more difficult. His precious grace will never be more available than in these last days, for He has spoken it in His Word.
The reason why most people do not save, or invest, is that they have been conditioned to believe that they do not have any extra money. Dr. Robards explains how the average person can make better financial decisions, climb out of debt to find hidden dollars, and put them to work. While the principles revealed in this book will work with other investments, his focus is on explaining the ins and outs of investing in precious metals, so that the average person can understand, and develop a financial plan to build wealth over time. His time-proven methods, and personal experience, makes this offering a must read for the person who is struggling with debt, or the man or woman who wants to understand the market before they invest.
