A Reflection on “The School of Prophecy” by Graham Cooke

October 19th 2014

The River of freedom, grace, and the love of the Father overwhelmed us during this weekend. As soon as I walked into the building, I could feel the joyful anticipation in the hearts of the people. They were not disappointed. Through Graham Cooke’s insightful 5-fold teaching gift we learned so much about the heart of prophecy.

 

We worshipped each morning and evening, and our band was amazing. Their passion to worship the majesty and splendor of God made it easy for us to enter in. The band’s main focus was to encourage US to worship along with them, and they led with humility, power, and incredible talent. A big “THANK YOU!” to Rebekah Bartels and Matthew Midthun who led the team.

 

What would a reflection be about a School by Graham Cooke without including some quotes? It will be hard to choose, but I’ll give it a try.

 

“It is a privilege to speak from a place inside of the heartbeat of God…We prophesy out of the nature of God, and we have to learn the language of love.”

 

“Have you upgraded your love for your friends and family, or have you become too familiar?”

 

“Many people prophesy outside of God’s love. That’s because they don’t know how to look at people the way God does.”

 

“What is it about us that we think we can judge people to cause them to change?”

 

“Difficult people are God’s way of making you perfect in love.”

 

“It’s your privilege to bless those who revile you.”

 

“New Testament prophets must proclaim Jesus…they tell you who you are in Jesus.”

 

“The meeting between Jesus, Elijah and Moses on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matt. 17) was when prophecy is handed over from the Old Covenant prophets to Jesus. At that moment the voice of the Father is heard in v. 5: ‘This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; hear Him.’ He’s saying, ‘This is what My voice sounds like now.’”

 

“Everything we do must be to set people free.”

 

“Good leadership empowers people to be captivated by God. It doesn’t capture them into a system.”

 

“The Father is totally committed to taking all of the hurt, pain and negatives in your live and giving you something else…instead.”(See Isaiah 61.)

 

“If you can’t love someone into freedom, keep your mouth shut, and open your heart to them.”

 

“God doesn’t want to give you the details of what’s coming; He gives you a promise for the future.”

 

“There’s nothing cheap about grace. It cost Jesus His life to give us grace.”

 

“The Lord didn’t stop speaking after He wrote the Book. Those who teach that God stopped speaking and doing miracles want to make the Bible the third member of the Trinity.”

 

“You cannot walk into the fullness of God if you gossip. It’s rabidly immoral and grossly immature.” (See Colossians 4:6.)

 

Regarding gossip and judging others: “You don’t want to be in a courtroom opposing Jesus…If Jesus is our Defender, the prophetic can’t be the prosecution. The voice of the prophetic can never be used to oppose Jesus.”

 

“Make everything about love.”

 

With love and gratefulness for all that God’s done,

Denise Siemens, Team Leader

    Please post the prophecy that Graham told us would be posted so we could use that as a guide for our prophecy until we are secure in our gifting.

    Thanks.
