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.

Steps to Divine Intervention

Wade Taylor

Many speak of being Spirit-led. Few are—for few understand the governing laws of a Spirit-led life or are willing to submit to the disciplines that lead to higher realms in God.

The Kingdom or Realm of God is a realm where there is much activity, but where all is in Divine order and purpose. A baby walks falteringly for a few steps and falls; his direction is arbitrary and casual. A child walks but for his own enjoyment and amusement. A young man walks to attain his own goals and to fulfill his owns visions. A father walks to satisfy the needs of his home and family. He has a purpose and a goal.

All this involves growth, development, understanding, dedication and sacrificial giving. These are marks of maturity.

It is so in the Lord and in His program. As babes in Christ, we must grow and develop in Him before we can live and walk in the Spirit. There is a progression that leads to this place or realm. It involves total commitment to Him. The teacher and schoolmaster is the Holy Spirit.

To walk in the Spirit is to walk one step at a time. We start from where we are, acknowledging His leadership and presence each step as we follow. Walking in the Spirit requires that we set all else aside to follow Him. He is the Christ, the Anointed of the Lord. The natural man cannot come this way, for he cannot discern the presence or anointing that brings one up into this higher realm, for it is a matter of the heart, not of the mind. The children of Israel were to abide under the pillar of fire and the cloud. They were to move only as it moved.

He is faithful and will lead. We can trust our lives in His Hands. Certain basic principles must be understood in seeking the higher realm of the Kingdom. These follow:

¾ The term “flesh” is a scriptural name given to the natural state and activity of man, independent of, and uncontrolled by, the Holy Spirit.

¾ The terms “led by,” “moved by,” or “to walk in” the Spirit are names of that supernatural state and activity of man when under the control of the Holy Spirit.

¾ The above conditions are contrary to each other, yet so similar in action; most people do not recognize the transition from one realm to the other.

¾ In flesh activity, the soul is active, but not man’s spirit. This is displeasing to God, for the Holy Spirit guides man’s activity through his Spirit.

¾ Man’s spirit and soul are so closely allied it takes the living Word of God to distinguish one from the other. God has sent His Spirit to accomplish this. The original Divine purpose was to make of man a being, living and operating in complete harmony and unity with God.

In the First test, man utterly failed and fell into the lower real of flesh life.

Through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, a way back to the higher realm of God has been established, and a way of entrance set before us. Man’s comprehension has been limited and his progress slow. A greater intervention of God is upon us in these last days to bring many sons up into the higher realm. Jesus called this the Kingdom and said it was at hand.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit was given as a means to fulfill this purpose and to enable us to enter. This experience has fallen into a lower realm of blessing rather than as an enabling leading to a higher purpose. Most people are satisfied with the spiritual blessings and imparted gifts of the enabling, rather than the endument of power to bring them into the higher realm. We must understand this experience in the right perspective.

Paul prayed, “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints” (Eph 1:18). There is much more available. We have come short of His provision.

Our Lord is challenging many to move up and on. The present dissatisfaction and searching in the Body of Christ is His prodding. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is the means. The Kingdom of God is the goal. To walk in the spirit is to be a subject of the Kingdom. He is on the throne.

Let us move on.
