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.

Behold I Will Do a New Thing

What is this “new thing”? It is when the soul bursts forth into full bloom with a new effulgence of His beauty! It is when full consciousness of His love supreme permeates our very being, and the consciousness of His presence no longer has to be “practiced” but becomes a reality, not just occasionally, but constantly. It is when the up-springing of His grace is like a fountain flowing at full strength, not like the tide ebbing and then rushing in. It is where even our dreams are reminders of Him, and He gives us songs in the night.

It is the pouring out of His Spirit without stint or measure. For it is the consciousness of the fact that the hour is near at hand, and the beat of our hearts is high with hope. It is a jealous hoarding of the precious things He whispers in our ear, and the maneuvering of our time that we may spend hours alone with Him.

It is the sound of His voice, hitherto unknown, and a taking on of the fragrance of His garments, which is the result of our close contact with Him. Yea, even the perfume of the frankincense, myrrh and cassia mingled with the bitter aloes of suffering and a joyous willingness to “know the fellowship of His sufferings”—where even pain is joy if He but stand by our side holding our hand.

It is the forward urge of the gifts with which He has blessed us, for exercise and the coming forth of full strength; yet it is complete rest in His presence, and full knowledge of His guidance. It is complete obedience to the thrilling touch of His hand. It is realization that “The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord” (Proverbs 16:1). For the ear is ever keen to hear Him say, “Who will go?” And, our tongue to answer, “Here am I, send me” (Isaiah 6:8).

It is really experiencing the answer to our prayer that the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts may be acceptable in His sight (Psalm 19:14). How often have we prayed that prayer and struggled to attain to such a desirable attitude before God. At times we have succeeded, only to lapse back again and again. The attainment is now at hand through the full working of His Spirit in the overcomers.

Yes, dear saints, we are “like them that dream” (Psalm 126), but it is a dream coming true. Even now is the reality beginning to unfold. Even now is the “new thing” breaking through the clouds that overhang a troubled world.

Put down your umbrella and open up your vessels toward heaven that they may overflow; for “the great rain of His strength” is at hand (Job 37:6). Be renewed in the spirit of your mind, that the wisdom of man may take flight and the “hidden wisdom” (I Corinthians 2:1-8) which alone comes by the revealing power of the Holy Spirit (I John 2:27) may flood both spirit and soul.

This “new thing” is for our final preparation as a Bride to “enter in,” leaning upon the arm of our Bridegroom. It is for those who are being tried and made white, those who are being purified in this Laodicean age. For those whose eyes are anointed with eye salve (the oil of the Spirit of God), whose vision is made clear (Revelation 3:18).

Behold, the Lord stands at the door and knocks. Heed His voice, open the door, and He will come into you, and will sup with you (Revelation 3:20).

Have you gone through the fiery furnace of a Job experience, dear child of God? If so, wonder not. It is but a way of preparation for the anointing upon your eyes—enlarging of your spiritual vision. Rest in full confidence in Him, for He knows how hot the fires must be to consume the dross and refine the gold. For the healing balm of Gilead shall bring unto you “joy unspeakable and full of glory” (I Peter 1:8).

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19
