My instruction to my children is simple – ‘Pursue my love’

Our prime directive is oneness with the Trinity

Forced love is no love at all


The gospel is not the news that we can receive Jesus into our lives.
The gospel is the news that Jesus has received us into his.

(Baxter Kruger in “The Shack Revisited” p:142)

Once we come into the Kingdom, we’re back in Father’s family where we belong.
We must see that we’re home. We’re safe and sound in Father’s home and under
his love and benevolence. We can then live the abundant life Jesus said was ours.

As a son, Jesus didn’t serve Father, he related to him and served people.
We are sons, so that’s the way we’re to operate – just like Jesus our prototype.

The whole aim of practical politics

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”     H.L. Mencken

Evangelism should focus on reconnecting people with their Creator rather than offering a way to escape punishment

Not “pie in the sky when you die”.
It’s “steak on the plate while you wait”.
This is the abundant life that Jesus taught about that never stops

Live loved.
Love living.
Live loving.

(Mike Parsons 2020)

Set your heart to be selfless

It’s sad that most Christians don’t have any clue that Father’s plan is The Restoration of All Things.

The real message of Jesus to the people:
“The ‘Word’ is here. Therefore the Kingdom reign of God on Earth is also here. It’s available to all the faithful and righteous who want to interact with it and experience its benefits. It’s free to all, through trust and obedience.”

The Kingdom is not concerned about food & drink rules.   
It’s religion that’s concerned about those
[Romans 14:17 (TPT)]

“ILLUSORY TRUTH EFFECT” is the psychological phenomena which describes the propensity of people to believe an unfounded statement to be true if they hear it often enough. This is the mechanism behind indoctrination, but its effectiveness is exploited by politicians and advertisers, as well as Left-wing teachers in the classroom.
Be advised: You are not immune to this effect.

Love the journey to maturity

“You have permission to stop re-killing the old man. By practising the new, the old remains dead.”
(Graham Cooke in “The Nature of Freedom”)

“The courage to speak must be matched by the wisdom to listen”
Charles E McKenzie

Our conclusion from investigating Revelation and eschatological theories:
“From now on, we focus on the King and the Kingdom, and not on end time scenarios or eschatologies.

The mountain of God is beginning to emerge from the crumblings of the 7 mountains of society which it is in the process of shaking into pieces. This is the Kingdom of God beginning to take over.

Father never sets us up to fail

The throne isn’t empty.
Jesus IS there already ruling.

The vultures are circling.
Detach your affinity with the works system and your dependence on it.
Switch totally to The Kingdom.

Celebrations look to the past and it’s achievements.

The Kingdom is focussed on a future of glorious achievements as sons manifest Heaven on Earth

“No regrets”
“No disappointments”
These are two instructions I received for my prophetic journal. They have been vital ‘tools’ to keep me focussed on the here-&-now and positively motivated.

In our Kingdom life we’re just scratching the surface like an archaeologist. We’re being too careful for our own good. There’s so much more underneath. That’s where the ‘treasures’ are that we’re supposed to find and display to the world for all to see.

Are you living in the past?
Wrong decision!
The Kingdom is moving forward and your destiny lies ahead of you.
“Meditation leads us to God and the permission of his heart.
Learn to be in the question peacefully with God.
Let the Holy Spirit teach you how to abide.
Turn inward and rest.
Wait patiently…He will come.”
(Graham Cooke)

Forget about “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”. That is archaic speech. This is what it means today: “The spirit of prophecy is the evidence of Jesus”.

If anything you believe is inconsistent with a perfect, loving heavenly Father, reject it outright. Love must be our plumb line to test everything. That includes our belief of the way he treats those who reject him.

We’ve been brought back to where Adam was originally before The Fall & it’s imperative that we learn to live in that unfamiliar spiritual environment

Set personal boundaries to protect yourself & guard them properly
[The essence of an instruction from King Jesus (20-1-2020)]


Jesus never said, “My sheep will read my book”. He said they will hear his voice.

“When I asked Father what plumb line I should use to evaluate my experiences and encounters or interpret the Bible, he said: ‘Love. If it is not unconditional love it is not me. If it is love it is me and love must be unconditional and directed to others or it is not love at all’”
Mike Parsons
(“Restoration of all Things” Session 1, 2019)

“Our old life structure was unable to fully function as a mature Son of God. For many of God’s people a life structure of firm beliefs, rigid boundaries, and a drive to succeed have caused an inner sense of need or lack which led to a lifetime characterized by striving. Striving to be enough, do enough, and have enough has led to some painful misadventures of life experiences that are a hindrance to our becoming the fullness of the Spirit reality of mature Sons of God, joint heirs with Christ Jesus.”
Ron McGatlin
(OpenHeaven Digest, 3rd January 2020)

If you want to do something for someone and they don’t want it done, let it go – even if you think the Spirit told you to do it. Any offence or hurt you feel from the rejection is a sign that your soul is in charge.

Whenever you give anything away, take your hands off it immediately. It now belongs to the other person. What they do with it is none of your business. They are responsible before the King to use it properly.

“A Deep well of provision is inside you. A deep river of blessing is before you. To drink deep is an act of worship. There is a new depth available. Go to a deeper place of delight.”
Graham Cooke
(from ‘Rise Up a Warrior’)

Surround yourself with those who are like-minded about the mission of the Kingdom

“If you want to make an impact in this world; practice hosting his presence and invest your heart in him.”
“At some point the church of Jesus has to stop pursuing the presence of God and start hosting him.”
Graham Cooke
(from ‘Making A Prophetic Impact’)

“Our inheritance and our guidance are tied to our relationship with God. I want to run and not be weary; I want to walk and not faint. This boundless, sustained energy only comes from spending time with God. We can’t receive it through the laying on of hands or some other form of ministry – it only flows from resting in the Lord. As mature Christians, we must stop asking people to pray for us to receive something that can only come through our own relationship with God.”
Graham Cooke (e-newsletter 26 October 2019)

“When you come into a place where you have absolute confidence in who God is for you, that confidence becomes the hallmark of your life. You are going to be known for it.” 
Graham Cooke (e-newsletter 21 October 2019)

Be a BE-DOO not a DO-BEE

As infants we are trained to be ‘busy bees’ doing things so we learn to be productive as adults. The Kingdom is the reverse of this.

First, go through your training to BE a fully functional son and only then let Father show you what to DO.

If a person calls themselves a “follower of Jesus” while they’re going this direction → and Jesus is going this direction ←, they’re not following him at all.

They need to reclassify themselves as a “follower of the teachings of Jesus” just like Buddhists follow the teachings of Buddha and ɱüŝļīɱŝ follow the teachings of Mohammed.

Don’t confuse grace for approval

People mostly listen with the intention of replying, not for receiving. This should not be the way we communicate in the Kingdom.

“”Sons Arise!” is the cry from the Father’s heart to unveil, reveal and release his children into their full, glorious identity and inheritance as mature sons of God: the Elohim,  god-like ones.”

“Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit are going to come through the front door of your life, sit down with you in the living space and talk to you about how they see themselves in their relationship with you”
(Graham Cooke from Episode 3 of ‘It’s over’ on BrilliantTV)

“Let go of negativity and instead live a life in the fullness and the goodness of the Lord every day”
(Graham Cooke quote form ‘Fresh Love Every Day’)

“Your principle role in the Earth is to be loved by God. To be loved outrageously and then to give that love to every one that you  connect with”
(Graham Cooke)

We don’t have favour with Heaven because we perform in ways that please our King. Favour comes from who we are as sons. The level of favour is in proportion to our reliance on him to supply every single need. This reliance comes out of our intimate relationship with him and is founded in absolute, complete trust.

Every situation, good or bad, makes a withdrawal on our identity – we demonstrate our Christ-likeness or our carnality. There is no one else to blame for this since we are in charge of who we are and how we show up.
(Graham Cooke, ‘Brilliant News’)

Alignment with God opens the door to countless upgrades and possibilities in the Kingdom. But being in alignment with God requires coordinated intentionality.
Graham Cooke
(promotion for ‘Coming Into Alignment’)

Graham Cooke
From: ‘Submitting to God’s Process’ MP3

Being a Kingdom citizen is not having a new ideology or an addition to your religion. It is meant to consume you so that it supplants all other belief systems and allegiances. It is who you are as a new species which out-works in your lifestyle and how you live as a person in society. It must be all-consuming as Jesus demonstrated it. You should observe about yourself that you’re always about Father’s business and thinking Kingdom thoughts all day long. Drawing from the Kingdom’s source of supply for every daily needs to become normal & natural for you.

“Restoration for us – and for all creation – is nothing more or less than coming back into alignment with God’s eternal thought about us”

“Rest in his acceptance of you and his affection for you”
(Graham Cooke from “Becoming the Beloved”)


“Heaven on Earth is nothing less than the fulfilment of God’s original intent and purpose for everyone and everything he has created”

“Everything that God is doing in your life is about your freedom. It is about your freedom, your release, your upgrade, and your blessing!”
(Graham Cooke

Our spiritual dashboard has 3 gauges:
joy, rest & peace
When we make things happen ourselves, this is soul power. Soul power has no place in the Kingdom.
Immaturity in the Kingdom is characterised by still wanting some form of pay-back. On the other hand, maturity is characterised by quickly & easily forgiving, while at the same time overlooking the offences of others.
One of the Kingdom’s purposes is to give the people of Earth a taste of what Heaven’s benefits are like.

Are you being successful at this task?

I teach what I’ve been given as revelation and downloads. That means it shouldn’t be minimised or explained away. Neither should it be said that I set the ‘bar’ too high – Heaven always defines the standard.
We all need to be offended.

Offence shows us what’s in our heart so we can submit it to be changed.

“God’s blessing should propel us into thanksgiving, our excitement over what he is doing must manifest itself in gratitude. Thankfulness is something we need to do every day of our lives.”

Graham Cooke from his book
‘Living in Dependency & Wonder’

Those who immediately raise objections or questions following Spirit-directed, sound teaching are usually those who are challenged, but who are not completely committed
to being changed
Position yourself to be used by Holy Spirit. Otherwise, a hard heart in any area will quench him from operating there.
I can’t emphasise it enough:
~Be quick to listen and slow to speak~
~Keep your peace and your silence~
Life in the Kingdom is all about personal transformation so each son can reach full maturity
Life in the Kingdom without ‘good works’ for other people is unproductive.

“Removing action from faith is like removing breath from a body. All you have left is a corpse.”
James 2:26 (VOICE)

Barring revelation, what we focus on is all we’ll ever see
“We are ready to embrace the original blueprint”
Romans 8:23 (The Mirror Bible)
“We need to see our life the way that God sees us, and we need to engage with that reality in a very conscious and direct manner. It’s called walking in the Spirit”
(Graham Cooke, from ‘Growing Up in God’)
What’s on Father’s Heart: The Restoration of Families

You’re in full control of yourself
You decide how you react in every situation
You decide to be emotionally hurt and wounded by others
It’s your choice

It’s all a matter of the heart.

What are your attitudes like?

When a person makes anything a gender contest, sonship is lost. Genuine humility and Kingdom identity
are missing from their life.
“For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will
tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear”
2 Timothy 4:3 (NLT)
Don’t focus on a person, focus on the King. He’s the centre and the one we are to emulate.

This is a vital message if you are a subscriber to Futurist Eschatology. In that view of End Times the theory is that the Anti-Christ will lead a religious revival that the saints will get sucked into.

  Saying “Thankyou” is a good thing to do.

Wanting others to thank you for the things you do for them is not a way of operating in the Kingdom.

Every time we join the church system we are misdirected from the essentials.

We take on church priorities, not Kingdom priorities. We miss Father’s plans for us in society, which Jesus never did. As a result, we have to go through a process of deprogramming and reprogramming, again.

A Description of Today’s Western Society.

“O My people! Children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Your leaders lead you astray and confuse (destroy, swallow up) the direction of your paths.” Isaiah 3:12 (AMP)

Is This Also Today’s Western Society

“Moreover, the Lord said, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks and with undisciplined (flirtatious and alluring) eyes, tripping along with mincing and affected gait, and making a tinkling noise with [the anklets on] their feet,”
Isaiah 3:16 (AMPC)

Emotions are not an indicator of a person believing what is true from Father’s perspective.

Their anger when opposed speaks volumes that their belief is emotional, not based on Kingdom rest and reality.

Don’t fall into this trap

We must not be distracted: being in the Kingdom is being in the King’s army.

It is all about warfare – a clash of kingdoms

Life in the Kingdom is not about being a nice person, it’s about being a son.

Anyone can be a lovely person, but not everyone can grow to maturity as a fully-functional son.

Cook with agapē or it loses its blessing.
Do everything with agapē or the blessings are lost both for you and for others.
Absolutely NOTHING in the Kingdom should be done or not done out of fear.
Whether it’s using insecticides, washing hands, food that’s eaten, exercising, etc. – no fear should be at the basis of these.
Everyone needs retraining to live the Kingdom life. Community teaching sessions are important for this, as well as discipling, mentoring and fathering.
When someone wrongly judges your motives, it’s an opportunity to learn the long-suffering and forbearance of Christ. Learn not to react, defend or respond.
(Frank Viola)
“Don’t rock the boat”
Christians don’t seem to want to change. They are content with their present state of spiritual maturity, their theology, the ‘baggage’ they carry and their character flaws.
One thing I’ve discovered in my long life: People follow your bad traits more than your good ones
“What a person builds with their gifts, they can just as quickly destroy by their character” (Frank Viola)
If I did not have continuous radical transformation in my life I’d reckon I’d settled for religion instead of the fullness of the Kingdom of Heaven
“A ‘pharisee’ is hard on others and easy on himself, but a spiritual man is easy on others and hard on himself” (A.W. Tozer)
What we speak comes from our heart.
Monitoring your speech will tell you what your heart’s like.

Anything you do with or for your body that is based on self, vanity or fear, does not have a Kingdom purpose

Your eschatology directly impacts your theology. What you believe about the Law, the New Covenant, Israel, end times, the Bride of Christ, & even eternity

“In reality, Christ-likeness is simply: “Taking on the personality of Jesus” (Graham Cooke)

“No one can learn, who is not prepared to unlearn. Entrance into the open air is gained only by those who break out of boundaries that have been set, who venture out of fixed paths into the unknown, and who do not let their heart and head be stunted by routine. Perhaps it may be claimed that only by what we can unlearn do we show whether and to what extent we are capable of learning.” Ernst Käsemann (theologian) 1981

In the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, accurate imaging, godly character and spiritual maturity are way more important than anointing or spiritual gifting.

When someone triggers you, YOU have an emotional ‘baggage’ problem. This is an indication that you need to deal with it.

We are each responsible to deal with our own ‘baggage’ rather than focussing on the ‘baggage’ of others.

Kingdom freedom eludes us while we are content to carry our ‘baggage’.

Spiritual synergy happens when we come together bringing our own spiritual anointing to add to everyone else’s.

Sound Teaching is for EQUIPPING (A Chiropractic term in the Greek meaning to align and function properly) and EDIFICATION (To grow and mature spiritually)

Defiance of the Church is Stalling the Lord’s Return

What are your ‘watchmen’ doing?

Keep watch and live prepared: “I will come when no one expects me”

Here’s our life maxim: “Focus on being about Father’s business

My prophetic download was: “Think Generational”

Like the lawless, busybodies and meddlers can’t properly operate in spiritual authority because they are law to themselves

Relax! Live free of pet hates and the compulsive protocols in your life – even good ones. These annoyances keep you tied up and negative towards others. These are a form of legalism that’s come through ‘the back door’ into your life.

“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”
Rick Warren
