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.

True Spirituality
By IQ Spencer

Rewritten by Wade E Taylor

Many today are presenting truth and revelation from the Word of God as an end in itself, feeling that this is the mark of spirituality. The revelation may be genuine and true to the Word of God, yet unless it finds release and expression through the body of believers through whom it was received, it is, in the words of I Corinthians 12:1, but sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal.

Concerning Jesus, the Word says in John 1:14 that “the word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” The eternal creative Word; the Logos of God, the greatest revelation that God could give to man—His Son, was made flesh, and dwelt among us as Jesus of Nazareth. That is, in Jesus, the Word and life were one, and through His life the world saw the expression of the Word. John said in I John 1:1: “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life.”

Our consecration to the Lord, our walk with Him, our fellowship with the body of believers of which we are a part, our relationship to the world in which we live must be such that the word and the revelation we hear and receive finds expression and fulfillment through our lives: the Word becoming flesh. In Acts 1:8, Jesus said, “Ye shall be witnesses.” Our growth to maturity is not determined by the amount of or the greatness of our revelation, but rather by the application of spiritual laws and truths to our lives. Israel saw the deeds of God but Moses walked in the ways of God, and through Moses’ life Israel saw the result of God’s revelation.

If we today will begin to practice and live what we know, this nation will be shaken and brought to God. Objective truth must be personalized in our lives and in our experience before it is really ours. The Word must become “flesh” through our lives as the world “handles” us, and sees his life manifested through us; then they will again marvel and say “never man spake as this man, for he speaks as one having authority.”

God is looking for lives that will conform to the truth and revelation coming forth in this hour; that the truth which he is speaking today might find its fulfillment in and through the lives of those whose hearts hunger to know Him. This is true spirituality.
