This last week, I had dreams from God over several nights. They all revolved around my attempt to do well and follow after the law. The drill was always the same; I failed. And with the failure came condemnation. I would try harder to get out of this dilemma, only to bury myself in further.
Then Jesus came and swallowed up my death, failure, sin, and condemnation. He had already taken it—all death, loss, corruption, and condemnation. As this experience would happen, I felt such freedom and joy. I was no longer responsible for being the one who did right. Jesus had already done this for me when He became sin for me.
“There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:1-2, literal translation)
The law of Spirit and life is greater than the law of sin and death. Literal freedom to go forward without regard to any sin and death. In each dream, my spirit would leap in this revelation, and experience complete freedom from toil, sorrow, condemnation, and pain.
I felt the Lord say, “My Spirit of life is here to reveal My freedom from sin and death. See My life swallow your death. See My righteous take the place of your sin. Just as I was dead and raised by the Spirit, see My Spirit give life to your mortality! I am about to overwhelm My people with My Spirit of life.”
“After this I awoke and looked around, and my sleep was sweet to me.” (Jeremiah 31:26, NKJV)
