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.

A verse of scripture that contains deep irony has fascinated me for years with the thought it projects. In Luke 3:2 is given a profound statement concerning the spiritual condition of Israel and the Lord’s method of response to it: “Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharais in the wilderness.”

Here in simple expression is set forth a religious system functioning – a high priesthood doubly established with the synagogue, relating to the religious life of that day. All this was established and blessed by the Lord through Moses. Yet, the Lord chose to bypass the entire system and spoke to a man “in the wilderness”—apart and separate from all that seemingly related to what was of God in that day. John the Baptist became a point of transition from one age into a new one.

Today, we are seeing the fall of the Charismatic Movement. The Lord has brought a remnant out and these are looking for a voice of expression concerning a new day and visitation.

The generation of religious orders in Jesus’ day missed. I pray and trust there will be a people in our day who having ears to hear will hear.

I greatly desire The Banner to be a voice leading toward producing a hearing hear and an understanding heart—to prepare a people to respond to the Lord. There are many voices, yet John the Baptist was a unique singular voice. In our day it may not come through a person, but the message will be singular and will involve repentance and righteousness. Our lifestyle will be judged. The Lord will have a people!

Pray with us that we may be faithful in the vision and need in our time.

There is an urgent need for those who will stand with us in prayer and financial support that this ministry may continue. New equipment is needed for printing. Please consider regular support of this ministry. It is needed and will be deeply appreciated.

May our Lord bless you as you continue to seek to know and serve Him better.
