The glory of God is the manifestation of His Word. God’s blessing is released when He speaks. His Word equips His people with the ability to get results. Man is the glory of God because

God spoke and man became a living soul. Satan’s objective is to get you
to receive his words so that your thoughts and emotions will lead you
away from the will of God for your life.

  1. The glory of God is the manifestation of His Word in the earth.
    1. God’s glory is tangible (Isaiah 40:5).
      1. Glory is what has been revealed; it can be seen.
    2. The glory is like the fruit of a tree that originated from a seed.
      1. Example: When you plant an apple seed, the “glory” of that apple tree is the apples.
      2. The Word of God is a seed that, when planted in your heart, will produce tangible results, or glory, in your life.
      3. When you can see the fruit of the Word manifesting in your life, you are seeing the glory of God in your life.
        1. The manifestation of a seed is glory.
        2. When you pray, the answer to that prayer is the glory.
        3. When you plant Word-seed on deliverance and you are delivered and walking in your deliverance, the glory of God is manifesting in your life.
        4. God has given you a book of seeds so you can have the potential to experience glory, but you cannot experience the glory of God without
          first planting the seed.
    3. God spoke the earth into existence; He said and then He saw what He said (Genesis 1:3-31).
    4. Jesus manifested in the earth through God’s Word spoken through the prophets. The Word was then made flesh (John 1:14).
      1. The Word always precedes the blessing; the blessing is what brings forth the glory.
      2. The Word and the blessing work hand in hand.
      3. How does God bless?
        1. God blessed the seventh day by speaking over it (Genesis 2:3).
        2. You cannot be blessed without the Word of God operating in your life.
        3. God blesses through His Word; His Word is what releases the blessing.
    5. The Word is the key to the blessing.
      1. God blessed man in the beginning with words.
    6. When we speak God’s Word, we release the seed necessary to produce His blessing and ultimately manifest His glory on earth.

  2. God’s purpose for mankind is to spread the glory of God throughout the earth.
    1. God spoke man into existence and gave him dominion and authority on earth (Genesis 2:7-20).
      1. God formed man with words and planted him in the Garden of Eden.
    2. Man is the glory of God (1 Corinthians 11:7).
      1. Man is the glory of God because man came from God’s words. Similarly, the woman is the glory of man because she came out of the man.
    3. God intended that man would speak His blessing into the earth and the glory would be manifested all over the world.
      1. God designed Earth to be a duplication of Heaven, and man is the reflection of God.
      2. Man and the Garden of Eden were expressions of God’s Word and His blessing.
        1. God equipped man with everything he needed to guard the Garden from the devil.
      3. God gave Adam the responsibility to replenish the earth. He was responsible for naming every animal. God gave man the authority in the earth
        (Genesis 1:22, 28).
      4. The enemy showed up and challenged what God had told Adam (Genesis 3:1-7).
        1. The enemy influenced Adam’s emotions with words that changed how he (Adam) thought about what God had already said.
        2. Satan wants to move you out of the will of God for your life by getting you to receive his words. If you do, your thoughts and emotions will be
          affected and you will make emotional decisions.
        3. Satan tries to get you to second-guess what God has already told you.
          1. God created man to be led by the Word, not by his emotions.
        4. Satan spoke to the woman first because she had the power to influence the man.
        5. The curse that entered the earth was the curse of being emotionally led.
      5. As a result of Adam’s disobedience to God’s commands, sin entered the earth and the glory departed.
        1. Adam received Satan’s words and gave place to a curse. As a result, the Garden of Eden and man began to die.
        2. God placed cherubim and flaming swords around the Tree of Life because if Adam and Eve had eaten of that tree, they would have been forever locked
          into their sinful state with no chance of redemption for all eternity
          (Genesis 3:24).
        3. The Tree of Life is found in the midst of the paradise of God (Revelation 22:2, 3).
