This appeals to me, naturally, so I clicked the link:

In this 3-day LIVE and highly-interactive challenge I will share with you the exact step-by-step Kingdom Entrepreneurship Framework that has allowed me to create massive kingdom impact and income beyond my wildest imagination.

Mr Adao claims to be a believer, and repeatedly refers to Biblical figures and how God used them for ‘the kingdom’. He tells us that they had access to ‘the hidden framework’, which Mr Adao has presumably rediscovered, used by 

…Esther, Joseph, David and modern day Kingdom Impact Makers that were propelled to prominence in a For Such A Time As This Moment.

Of our host himself, we are told that he is an

...8-Figure Kingdom Entrepreneur. From having $0 sales online in 2018 to now generating over $40M in revenue by 2022.

It sounds to me like just another get-rich-quick scheme, but with the word ‘kingdom’ scattered about and a few Bible characters interspersing the pitch. When one comes across an offer like this, one needs to ask whether it is appealing to our old, worldly natures ('the flesh', or 'the old man'), or our new hearts being sanctified by the Spirit. If the former, flee. If the latter, embrace. 

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Luke 12:34
