I also had a vision in 2003 that spoke of a change in the Church. I saw a red brick building. It was a church building. The roof was rotten, the wood in the walls was rotten. The remedy was to remove all the wood in the building. It needed to be replaced. It could not be repaired…
Well, this meant that the brick walls would have to be torn down as they were not in shape to support themselves without a connection to the wood. In very poor shape.
So I saw the building reduced to the foundation stones. I was ready to see a new building build on this old foundation.
However the Spirit of God spoke. “Take out the foundation. It is not substantial enough to support the building that I am ready to build on this ground.”
The building that God is ready to build (Bride) is to be so much glorious than our present understanding. However, *are* we ready for Him to take down the present building? And take it down all the way to the original dirt? Our human side wants to hold onto something that is recognizable from our past. It then becomes that leaven that brings back all the old junk of the previous life.
Then I heard, “I am looking for a ‘General Contractor’ who will build according to the blue print.” Then I understood that He would only entrust the construction of this building to someone who is fully submitted to do all and not less that all that comes from the throne of Heaven. We are not the architect. It is not our job to design the building.
Shortly after the vision I was in Acts 5. In verse 32, I was over- whelmed with the truth that we do *not* have the ministry of the HOLY SPIRIT because we do *not* obey his voice. (Jer 7: 22)…
God is ready for His bride to operate in all the power that Jesus had while He was on this earth (Scriptures say this) when we are ready to relate to God the same way Jesus related to the Father.
As I look at church history, I see that God gave men truth and they used their minds to ADD more truth. And then this new truth brought death to the truth of God. Where are the people who can be obedient only to the simple truths brought by the Holy Spirit?
