This is what God spoke into Adam when he breathed life, purpose, destiny and abundance at Creation.

It started with Adam, So God took care of everything for Adam! God saw to it that Adam lacked nothing! God gave Adam companionshp, ability, and abundance! He BLESSED Adam with the power to be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, subdue it and have dominion over every living creature!
Genesis 1:28 NKJV
28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Genesis 2:15–17 NKJV
15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
Genesis 3:1–6 NKJV
1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
God is the Author of Abundance
When Adam served God all he knew was abundance - The garden of Eden! Adam had the best of everything! God's will for Adam was all about abundance
James 1:17 NKJV
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
The Blessing Of Abraham
Once Adam Sinned - sin robbed man of the BLESSING and the abundance that it brings, But God made a way to get the BLESSING back into this earth realm by establishing a covenant or an agreement with ABRAHAM
Genesis 17:1–9 AMP
1 WHEN ABRAM was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, I am the Almighty God; walk and live habitually before Me and be perfect (blameless, wholehearted, complete). 2 And I will make My covenant (solemn pledge) between Me and you and will multiply you exceedingly. 3 Then Abram fell on his face, and God said to him, 4 As for Me, behold, My covenant (solemn pledge) is with you, and you shall be the father of many nations. 5 Nor shall your name any longer be Abram [high, exalted father]; but your name shall be Abraham [father of a multitude], for I have made you the father of many nations. 6 And I will make you exceedingly fruitful and I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. 7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting, solemn pledge, to be a God to you and to your posterity after you. 8 And I will give to you and to your posterity after you the land in which you are a stranger [going from place to place], all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. 9 And God said to Abraham, As for you, you shall therefore keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations.
and the abundance that it brings,
But God made a way to get the BLESSING back into this earth realm by establishing a covenant or an agreement with ABRAHAM

Galatians 3:29 NKJV
29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
The Whole Gospel
Jesus came to free us completely and that includes are financial freedom
That's the whole gospel!
Luke 4:16–21 NCV
16 Jesus traveled to Nazareth, where he had grown up. On the Sabbath day he went to the synagogue, as he always did, and stood up to read. 17 The book of Isaiah the prophet was given to him. He opened the book and found the place where this is written: 18 “The Lord has put his Spirit in me, because he appointed me to tell the Good News to the poor. He has sent me to tell the captives they are free and to tell the blind that they can see again. God sent me to free those who have been treated unfairly 19 and to announce the time when the Lord will show his kindness.” 20 Jesus closed the book, gave it back to the assistant, and sat down. Everyone in the synagogue was watching Jesus closely. 21 He began to say to them, “While you heard these words just now, they were coming true!”
The Gospel To The Poor
Jesus was anointed to preach to the captives, He preached deliverance to the brokenhearted , He preached healing to the blind , he preached recovery of sight but we have never preached the gospel to poor
