The Art Of Thinking Brilliantly – Graham Cooke

manifesting your spiritI’m onto volume 2 of the “Way Of The Warrior” by Graham Cooke and think this is so brilliant  – I have to add a few paragraphs on my blog!

Page 122: “We become what we behold, about God and ourselves. This is true, of course, whether positive or negative. To be renewed in the spirit of our mind is to always to engage with the positive. God has not asked us to deal with the negative aspects of our lives. He has already dealt with them in Christ. We are dead to sin. He has crucified us with Christ. Our old nature is dead and buried. It is no longer our concern. We are in Christ in order to learn to become Christlike. Our whole engagement  of life is to be created in the image of God. It is the ultimate reinvention”

Page 123: ” Conversion of our thinking, to God’s thinking is the crucial element in all transformations. The Father has dealt with sin once and for all in Christ. Now he is dealing with life in all its beauty, grace and power.”

Page 126: “Our goal is to become the righteousness of God in Christ. We are focused on holiness, not sin. We are engrossed with the new nature of Christ, not the old nature that is dead. So, if a man has a problem with lust, he does not deal with it as a negative. He does not engage with it, receive counsel for it, learn to overcome it. He has lust because He is missing something about himself. He has not understood or experienced his purity in Jesus. He has not fully engaged with righteousness.”

“He does not deal with lust, he engages with purity. He renounces the old behaviour and submits to the power of the new nature with the amazing help  the Holy Spirit. We confess the old nature is dead.  In prayer we are cut off from the old behaviour, and we begin to soak in the holiness of God. As we engage with a new mindset, our behaviour becomes fully new; and we develop the joyful habit of purity. Our mindset becomes new. Actions follow thoughts. New mindset, new behaviour – the essence of transformation”

“All the time we are engaging with what we are not, our mind has no possibility for transformation”

Page 128: ” Repentance is thinking again, having a better thought. It is key part of transformation – renewing our thinking. All thinking must be rooted in God’s goodness and kindness”

Great leaders produce kingdom people – Graham Cooke

I’m reading Qualities of a Spiritual Warrior by Graham Cooke. The chapter entitled Great Leaders Produce Kingdom People is such a brilliant piece of writing and prophetic for the time we are in – I’ve got to share part of it!  I encourage you to get the complete book at www.brilliantbookhouse.com

A church that is top-down led- that is not permission giving, – that does not allow the people to dream or encounter God fully for themselves – can never produce a warrior. In truth, people who want more of God are going to leave these inferior houses to seek the Lord and his greatness.

A church that has no concept of or experience in the kingdom is not fighting on the right battlefield. the church is the place of intimate devotion to the King. A place of fellowship, encouragement, dreaming and development. People are equipped and prepared for a life of destiny. They are released to discover their inheritance, to live in favour ant to move out of abundance – not poverty.

People who are developed specifically to serve another man’s ministry can never rise to a place of sonship within that organisation. They will only ever be servants to someones anointing. This type of discipleship arises out of a task-orientated, functional paradigm of Christianity that actually can disengage people from their own dreams and disinherit them from God’s desire for their life. I have lost count of the times when prophecy has been spoken to an individual in this type of environment, and it has resulted in them being fired from their position because apparently they now no longer “fit” the requirements of the leadership.

In a relational paradigm like the Kingdom, our challenge is to produce sons and fathers who are like the Godhead in personality, character, and anointing. God gives dreams and sends prophets to confirm His desires. Leaders, who are also fathers, are intensely interested and involved in the identity, inheritance and destiny of the people that the Lord has committed to their charge. Otherwise, we are merely using people.

This is brilliant too! Graham Cooke on Sin And Grace
