I was so excited when the Lord told me He was restoring Eden. I just didn’t know where it fit in—because I teach so much on the Seven Mountains.
It seemed as if the Lord was saying, “Every single person has a mountain to take but the starting point is in the sphere that you currently occupy.”
Your home and your family is at the heart of your Eden.
My wife has been telling me that I have the wrong order for my mountains! I’ve always started with the church, but now I see that she is right.
The family mountain is first! God put a family in a garden and in that garden formed an ecclesia—a place where two or more could gather together in the presence of the Lord—and expand the boundaries of their dominion.
I want to encourage you to think about Eden. Here are three things that are a revelation to me:
- God has given you “authority” over the garden. You MUST know about the authority you have been given, and use it! A serpent will always try to get into the garden. If he can’t stop you on the outside, the devil will try to corrupt you on the inside and negate your power to expand.
- The serpent has many disguises. America was once a well-watered garden—but the serpent got in and now it is a nation being torn apart by two seeds growing to maturity: one will produce life and the other will produce death. I wish it were otherwise, but Christians are needed to discern spirits more in this next season, than any other time before. This year the Church and Christian families are being targeted by radical, well-funded strategists. These influencers see the “soft underbelly” of Christianity as the critical swing factor in the election. Believers now, more than ever, are the factor that will determine the future of America’s garden.
- Always war from the garden out! The secret to victory is to make sure God’s Spirit is ruling over your territory—first in your heart, then home, then work space.
The garden is a place that God has assigned you to. It is therefore part of your jurisdiction in the Spirit. In the garden, you have authority to establish a kingdom embassy. This is where the presence and peace of God rules. You expand from there. Watch what happens!
I see THREE battlegrounds you need to focus on:
- Your nation
- Your house and family
- Your finances and business
I feel, now more than ever, the need to bring together a panel of experts to speak, train, and activate you— and me.
