Chapter 1

What is Economics?

Economics is an intensive study of all the wealth, riches, and
abundance which God has placed in the world, at the disposal of all

Understanding Economics, therefore, gives us the ability to
appreciate what the Father has done for us in the past, is currently
doing for us in the present, and promises to do on our behalf in the
future which lies ahead.

“God created great whales, and every living creature
that moveth, which the waters brought forth
Abundantly.” (Genesis 1:21)

The capacity of God to manifest wealth Abundantly, has
earned Him the distinction of being the world’s most renowned
Economist. Jesus Christ is a Master at the art of creating wealth and abundance.

To be Fruitful means to practice the laws of Economics, which were established by the Master Teacher from the inception of time.

“God blessed them, saying, be Fruitful.” (Genesis 1:22)

Therefore, it is an undeniable fact that Economic Prosperity for
all is one of the principal missions of Jesus, The Man, and Christ, His
Holy Spirit.


The Lord may not be a blessing to us if we have Nothing to
offer Him.

There is no excuse for poverty because Jesus said: “all things
[including Financial Blessings], whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer,
believing, ye shall receive.” (Matthew 21:22)

“He [Jesus] saw a fig tree in the way, He came to it, and
found Nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto
it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward.”
(Matthew 21:19)

Having Nothing, therefore, may be a sign that we are neither
praying, nor believing.

The foregoing, thus, is both the justification and explanation of
the Lord’s cursing of the economically non-productive “fig” tree.

Economic abundance is the foundation upon which this world
was built and established, as recorded in Genesis, the First Book of the Holy Scriptures.

Therefore, it is safe to make the proclamation that the Book
of Genesis is indeed the first real Economics Text Book ever to be

Additionally, the Bible is the only Document that gives
an Historic Economic account regarding the awesome wealth and
abundance contained in this universe and the origins thereof.

Also, all other Economics text books of the world (the Bible
only attempt to further describe and elaborate upon that
which God has already proclaimed as His rule of law.

In other words, it is only the Holy Scriptures which has any
original Information.

Economics encompasses a wide diversity of Spiritual
dimensions, the likes of which the world has never known.

The preceding justifies the authorship of this book that has
been ushered into the universe.

Jesus Christ is the ultimate foundation of all Economics.
Specifically, the Father is the only person who walked the face of
this earth (and had a Supernatural track record of achievement) to
substantiate His financial decision making infallibility.
