Mindset Paradigms

To elaborate on mindset paradigms, I will classify the human mindset into three broad categories namely: God, Greek, Barbarian.
A barbarian mindset sees the world like this “I am the oppressor, they are the oppressed”. The barbarian mindset is anchored on “If you fill people with fear, you can control them, to a barbarian mindset force is supreme, power comes by creating fear. A barbarian mindset individual thinks that to get ahead in life you have to oppress more people and win by intimidation. Most of the world before Christ Jesus had a barbarian mindset. Groups like the Taliban, ISIS & Hamas are built on a barbarian mindset!
“If you are controlled by FEAR… if you are always thinking about what bad may happen… If you let your fears limit what you do! that’s a Barbarian Mindset also!”

The ancient Greek gave us a “NEW” mindset. Greeks worshiped MAN. They created their goods in the form of man! Their approach was “We have the power to fix it, we can make the world a UTOPIA if we all work together. The operating principle of the Greek mindset is PRIDE, that pride operates through human reason and intellect. What we understand we can control. To a Greek mindset, human mind and reason are supreme. Power comes through knowledge and it can’t accept what it doesn’t UNDERSTAND. This mindset believes that to get ahead in life all you need is more of the right education and human partnerships. A Greek mindset is much more pleasant to live under than a barbarian mindset. Rome began as barbarian, but changed to Greek! In the dark ages, Europe fell back into a barbarian mindset! the result was a “Feudal System”. The dark ages ended at the renaissance, Europe again embraced Greek mindset! “Western Civilization” is built on Greek Mindset!

God mindset is a biblical mindset. The operating principle of God’s mindset is not FEAR or PRIDE but FAITH. Faith works through Love. It is coming to know the living God and learning to walk by faith in Him. To the God mindset set, power comes from knowing God. This approach seems foolish to the world! Under this mindset, you still get educated and have your human partnerships, but you also learn to walk in God’s Favour to get ahead.
If you think you can get where you want to through your own intellect and human networks alone, then you have a Greek mindset and paradigm. I believe that to be a super achiever, there will be times in days ahead when your mind and networks will not know the way! The only way to move forward will be to “know” by the Great Holy Spirit! The Spirit will lead you if you have developed your five senses to capture His thoughts.

Think Like Heaven

The earth gets it sustenance from Heaven. Knowing what heaven is thinking and aligning to it will open the door to abundance. Heaven is able to replicate itself on earth through men that lead from the future.
Awareness is required, in understanding that heaven is speaking to earth.
Thinking like heaven starts with thinking about Heaven, thinking about the throne room of God, Heaven is God’s throne. God wants to interact with us from Heaven to earth.
A study done shows that 50% of our awakening hours are spent day dreaming. In the middle of the day dream are destiny dreams, If we become aware that when we are day dreaming, that Heaven is also speaking, then we can access heavens thoughts.
In practical terms it is also important to be aware that whenever we properly captured a thought, we play out the thought to the end in our mind. For example instead of thinking I hope this flight does not crash, we should think of the best expected ending, and not give room to worry, worry is using our imagination in a negative way. My paradigm is based on Hope. The word Hope in the bible means a joyful expectation of good. Hope allows us to see the unseen, when we can see from God perspective of what is around us, we actually have hope. Hope creates a picture of what God wants to do.
Hope is also the ability to see the unseen realm. It does not take a special gift, but it takes a perspective shift, to where you are already seated with Christ in Heavenly places. Thinking from the place you live in Christ. One thought from Heaven can change everything for you, if it is followed through.
I have had several God thoughts that I known was not mine and sometimes, it happens in the most unexpected places.
One thought from God can give us an idea to reach a new market and to reach people in our region or cultures we never thought possible.
It is important we all get thought from God. Become aware of heavenly thoughts that are already coming to you. so you can capture them and will be able to act on them.
When we hear God clearly, then we can see our circumstance around us differently. When we entertain a thought long enough it becomes an action, actions eventually became a habit. The habit will sow into our character and what is in our character will sow into our destiny.
When we hear from God everything changes in our life. God’s thought also carries His power to cause us to be transformed.
Everyone is created to hear God’s voice and to speak what God speaks.
