Many persons do now want to be rich as Abraham now was.
Now here are some of the Biblical secrets that all of the pastors even firstly also do need to read ,for it seems too many pastors these days are not the only ones who are wanting to get rich quick as evidenced by even them personal begging openly others for money and donations. They as preachers should firstly seek to do it the Biblical way.
But yes the bad preachers are not the only ones who seem to be in a hurry to get rich, and who are also the same persons who are under a false concept that them now having more money will bring them more peace and happiness.
Too many other persons even these days are even paying the preachers money to try to get personal prosperity, blessings, peace for themselves as well falsely too cause even their own past approaches clearly have not worked.
True prosperity is being personally in the will of God.
