Kenneth Copeland has taught the following
That Adam was God manifest in the flesh.
"God's reason for creating Adam was His desire to reproduce Himself. I mean a reproduction of Himself, and in the Garden of Eden He did just that. He was not a little like God. He was not almost like God. He was not subordinate to God even. . . . Adam is as much like God as you could get, just the same as Jesus. . . . Adam, in the Garden of Eden, was God manifested in the flesh."

God is the greatest failure in the Universe
"I was shocked when I found out who the biggest failure in the Bible actually is....The biggest one is God....I mean, He lost His top-ranking, most anointed angel; the first man He ever created; the first woman He ever created; the whole earth and all the Fullness therein; a third of the angels, at least--that's a big loss, man. . .

God lives on a mother planet
"Heaven has a north and a south and an east and a west. Consequently, it must be a planet."

"You don't think earth was first, do you? Huh? Well, you
don't think that God made man in His image, and then made earth in some
other image? There is not anything under this whole sun that's new. Are
you hearing what I'm saying? This is all a copy. It's a copy of home. It's
a copy of the Mother Planet. Where God lives, He made a little one just
like His and put us on it."

“Every prophet that walked the face of the earth under
the Abrahamic covenant could have paid the price if it were a physical
death only” “When he said ‘It is finished’ on that cross, he was not speaking
of the plan of redemption. The plan of redemption had just begun, there
were still three days and three nights to be gone through.” “[Jesus] accepted
the sin nature of Satan in His own Spirit, and at the moment that He did
so, He cried ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’.” “He [Jesus]
was down in that pit and there he suffered the punishment for three horrible
days and nights for Adam’s treason... There is a new birth takes place
in the very depths of the earth, when the command of God says ‘That’s enough,
loose him and let him go’.”
What Happened from the Cross to the Throne
God and Adam are the same size
God spoke Adam into existence in authority with words. These words struck Adam's body in the face. His body and God were exactly the same size."
Holy Bible, Kenneth Copeland Reference Edition 1991, 45, emphasis in original
God has no right to the earth
at all, he needs an invitation
"God had no avenue of lasting faith or moving in the earth. He had to have covenant with somebody. . . . He had to be invited in, in other words, or He couldn't come. God is on the outside looking in. In order to have any say so in the earth, He's gonna have to be in agreement with a man here."

Adam looks the same as Jesus and God
"[Adam] was the copy, looked just like [God]. If you stood Adam upside God, they look exactly alike. If you stood Jesus and Adam side by side, they would look and sound exactly alike."
Authority of the Believer IV 1987, audiotape #01-0304, side 1
"Adam was made in the image of God. He was as much female as he was
male. He was exactly like God. Then God separated him and removed the female
part. Woman means 'man with the womb.' Eve had as much authority as Adam
did as long as they stayed together."

"He [Jesus] is suffering all that there is to suffer. There is no suffering
left apart from Him. His emaciated, poured out, little, wormy spirit is
down in the bottom of that thing [hell]. And the Devil thinks he's got

"That Word of the living God went down into that pit of destruction
and charged the spirit of Jesus with resurrection power! Suddenly His twisted,
death-wracked spirit began to fill out and come back to life. He began
to look like something the devil had never seen before."
The Price of it All," Believer's Voice of Victory 19, 9 [September 1991]:4
"He [Jesus] was literally being reborn before the devil's very eyes. He began to flex His spiritual muscles. . . .Jesus was born again--the firstborn from the dead the Word calls Him--and He whipped the devil in his own backyard. He took everything he had away from him. He took his keys and his authority away from him." (Ibid., 4-6.)
"As a believer, you have a right to make commands in the name of Jesus.
Each time you stand on the Word, you are commanding God to a certain extent
because it is His Word."
