This may surprise you, but did you know the Bible talks about wealth creation? As far as money goes, a lot of people think the Bible is just about vows of poverty and various things, but the Bible talks a ton about wealth creation. In fact, some of the main characters in the Bible were wealthy, fabulously wealthy: David, Abraham, Solomon, Job, to name a few. The Bible, in fact, does not condemn wealth, but gives many, many keys, that are now being proven as the main keys of wealth creation. We’re going to take a little tour through the Bible and figure out what it says about wealth creation.
The Bible is amazing —It’s the oldest of the ancient texts, written between 2,000 years ago and 3,500 years ago. Some 40 authors contributed over a 1500-year span, and it contains some 8,000 predictions in it. One author showed 3,268 predictions have already been fulfilled in the Bible. It predates nearly all the other ancient texts, the Celtic, the Hindu, the Buddhist. It’s not just one little story that was carved in a stone; it’s a massive set of stories that contains history, poetry, wisdom, prophecy. It’s still being mined by scholars and by students for its secrets. The Bible has given even many science facts that only in the last few hundreds of years were proven to be true. There are scriptures that described the earth being a sphere and that floated that in free space. They talked about the oceans having springs and mountains before anyone understood any of these things. It’s an amazing resource with amazing secrets.
Now as I said, the Bible has many, many secrets about wealth creation. What are the keys to creating wealth? We’re going to dive in and look at some of these. Some of the wealthiest, most successful individuals in history attributed the Bible and the Bible secrets as their means to success, including John D. Rockefeller.

Many, many greats, thousands of people have attributed the Bible to their success.
