God’s Word is the origin of all things; He spoke, His glory was manifested in the earth. The Garden of Eden was a place where God’s glory resided and was the pattern for how God wants people
to live today. When Adam turned his authority over to Satan in the
garden, God enforced a new plan to get His glory back in the earth.
Through Jesus, He restored mankind and opened the door for His glory to
spread all over the earth again.

  1. God’s Word is the origin of all things.
    1. In the beginning, God spoke His Word and everything that ever existed came into being (John 1:1-5).
      1. When God said, “Let there be light,” He was essentially saying, “Let there be glory manifested on the earth.”
    2. God created man as another speaking spirit, who had dominion and authority in the earth. He charged man to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis
      1:26-28; Genesis 2:7).
    3. Every time you speak, you breathe life into your situations and circumstances.
      1. Anything you do or start that is not based on the Word of God will not last.
    4. The Word will put you on the path to experiencing God’s glory.

  2. God intended for His glory to be manifested and spread all over the earth, starting with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
    1. God planted a garden that would have an unending supply for mankind. It would allow man to experience abundant life in every aspect.
      1. Man lacked nothing in the Garden of Eden.
    2. The Garden of Eden was a place where God’s glory was fully manifested.
      1. God’s glory is His manifested Word.
        1. Answered prayer, wealth, health, deliverance and every other promise of God, when manifested and seen, is His glory.
    3. The Garden of Eden is the pattern of how God wants life to be.

  3. When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, the blessing was blocked.
    1. Adam received Satan’s words, which caused his thinking to go in the wrong direction and moved him to make an emotional decision that opposed what
      God had told him.
      1. Adam ate the fruit and sin entered the earth.
      2. Through his sin, Adam blocked his blessing and lost the glory.
    2. Sin is a blessing-blocker.
      1. When the blessing is blocked in your life, manifestation stops.
      2. God wants to bless you, but He can’t until you remove the blessing-blockers in your life.
        1. If you are not getting results in your life, you could be operating under the curse.
        2. The curse doesn’t come without a cause.
        3. Locate the blessing-blockers in your life and remove them.
    3. God had to get His glory back in the earth.
      1. God chose Abraham, with whom He cut a covenant, in order to get His Word in the earth and restore the glory to mankind.
      2. Abraham was blessed as a result of his covenant with God
        1. Abraham had evidence of the glory on his life—he was extremely wealthy.
      3. The blessing can never remain in the hands of a selfish, manipulative or greedy person.
      4. You can only operate in the blessing by operating in the love of God.

  4. Jesus redeemed mankind from the curse and restored the blessing that Adam lost in the Garden of Eden (Galatians 3:13, 14).
    1. Dominion and authority had to be given back to Jesus because He defeated Satan.
      1. Jesus successfully resisted Satan in the Garden of Gethsemane.
      2. Jesus became the last Adam because where Adam failed, Jesus succeeded.
        1. Jesus didn’t receive Satan’s words in the Garden of Gethsemane.
        2. Even when you are under pressure, when the blessing is on your life, it will keep you protected in the midst of pressure.
      3. The blessing is the anointing, which removes burdens and destroys yokes.
      4. As a Believer, you have knowledge about the glory of God inside of you (2 Corinthians 4:3-7).
        1. The treasure is the knowledge of the glory of God.
