John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.-

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

Increasing Our Relationship with the Lord

Harry Finn

Let us not become the problem but the answer to the problem. To do this, we must have the right spirit and give forth the right “vibrations,” –or expressed feelings. We do this by cultivating the right spirit.

“Vibrations” are what an infant feels when cradled in the protective warmth of its mother’s loving arms. Vibrations are what a child feels and responds to when its father tosses it gleefully into the air, or its mother plays with it in gentleness. It is quite possible that the parents might play a little rough, even to the point of hurting the child, but as long as they play, it laughs in joyous delight.

If the parents, however change their spirit of love (vibration) to a spirit of condemnation (vibration), a negative spirit, sent out in wrath and anger can thereby do as much harm as a positive word by the spirit of love can do good—“For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by they words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:35-37). A positive spirit and attitude will bring light and love which will always have the efficacy of dispelling an evil negativeness and darkness, when we call upon the Lord to do so.

This knowledge, containing the method of using the laws of righteousness correctly, is the positive spoken word and approach to God’s purpose and plan. “That the communication of the faith may come effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus" (Philemon 1:6).

As one learns to control his own thoughts and actions and reactions—permitting no negative, vile, lustful or hateful thoughts to be generated or released through him—he will become powerful in the Lord. In I Samuel 2:3 our very actions are weighed. These releases are very important in our lives. Remember Hebrews 10:32, “…after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions.”

An individual learning to overcome his own wrath, anger, hate, greed, lust and selfishness will have the power to completely overcome the evils of his life. Even the destructive vibrations of worry which are but the release of his own fears, can be eliminated instantly by the love of God. “Love casts our all fear: fear has torment” (I John 4:18).

You are the instrument through which these constructive releases will come. A bad spirit toward your fellow man will be your destruction; a good spirit toward your fellow man will cause you to be an overcomer (mature), for by your words you are justified and by your words you are condemned. “…If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body” (James 3:2).

This all tends to increase our relationship with the Lord “in whom all the building fitly framed together growth into an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit” (Eph 2:21, 22).

Habitation is a place of abode or relationship with the Lord. Verse 21 of Ephesians 2 teaches us not to stay in the same place but to grow together into a Holy Habitation.

The fifteenth chapter of Exodus gives us our full and complete inheritance. We are to be planted in the mountain of His Holy Habitation (Exodus 15:2, 13, 17), a complete picture of the tabernacle outer court, inner court, and the Holy of Holies—ruling and reigning in Christ Jesus “after ye were illuminated…” (Hebrews 10:32).

“Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought but that we receive a full reward (heritage)” (2 John 8).
