This is from the blog My Dreams and Visions:

I’ve seen this vision for a while now so I am going to post it. Imagine, if you will, a church building that had been destroyed and this will show what I saw in the vision. The church lay in ruins, no roof overhead, walls crumbled, but some pews remained intact. I saw people there and at first glance one would want to commend them for their faithfulness. However, what i saw next changed my perspective. I saw a cloud moving away from the destroyed church building. There were a few, and let me reemphasize, a few saw the cloud and left while the majority stayed in the destroyed church building, I saw nothing else around, i.e., new church buildings. It was just the people who had chosen to follow the cloud wherever it was leading. The Israelites followed the cloud. When it moved, they moved. When it rested, they rested. Like the church building in my vision those refusing to follow the cloud would be left basically in the desert to fend for themselves. Following the cloud is imperative in these last days as we are headed into uncharted territory. Those in the destroyed church building, although the cloud was no longer there, stayed because it was a place they were familiar with. The cloud represents a walk of faith, a giving up the familiar and yielding to the unfamiliar. To not follow the cloud, is to be in rebellion, face famine of hearing God’s Word, His presence.

This vision started when I heard the Lord speak to my spirit saying the cloud is moving.

Romans 8: 14: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”

Governed by the Holy Ghost   2 comments

Dreams from the LORD 2003-2006

Galatians 5: 18: “But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.”

The letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. The law is our schoolmaster until Christ be formed in us. The law and the letter came at Mt. Sinai. The Spirit was available after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. To be led by the Holy Spirit is where the Lord wants us—not to be constantly thinking about the letter of the law. The Lord doesn’t want us to be governed by the letter of the law, but to be governed by the Holy Ghost. The Law and the Prophets and the New Testament should be engraved in our hearts—it should be engrafted into our Spirit man. We should be a law unto ourselves.

The law is death. The letter is death. The flesh is death. The Spirit is life, peace, spontaneity, childlikeness, light, freedom, fresh revelation, wisdom and strength. My life of obedience to the Holy Ghost really disturbs Christians who are in bondage to legalism. They really get rattled. I am sure that when I was younger I had some legalism in me, but because I wanted the power of the Holy Ghost in my life, legalism eventually died out. The more you kick the demons out of your body and your soul, the freer you become. To be a bond slave of Christ is to be a free man; to be a bond slave of self will is slavery and sin and death. When a vessel willingly submits to the Holy Ghost, the Holy Ghost gives that vessel overcoming power over sin. The law is the box; the Holy Ghost is outside the box. Let us suffer His reproach without the box. We are not lawless, but a law unto ourselves: the “law” of the Holy Ghost.
