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.

He is Made Unto Us
Dino Vail

“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” I Corinthians 1:30

“For it pleased the Father that in Him (Jesus) should all fullness dwell.” Colossians 1:19

“In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. For in Him (Jesus) dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him.” Colossians 2:3, 9, 10

“Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom.” Colossians 3:16

“For all things are yours.” I Corinthians 3:21

The Word, Jesus Christ Himself, abides within each of His own. Envision, if you are capable, the storehouse of His treasures accompanying Him: all He and His treasures, dwelling within us. It is beyond comprehension: the Lord of Glory and all that He is taking up residence within His own. He, the Word of God, who resides within us, has many names which are connected with His Word. Here are a few: Word of Life, Word of Faith, Word of Healing Word of Knowledge, Word of Prophecy, Word of Truth, Word of the Lord, Word of Wisdom, The Overcoming Word, The Word of Power, The Living Word, A Sure Word, and Water of the Word. He is all of these and more, for all fullness does dwell in Him, and He dwells in us.

Some might ask, “How do we find Him and His attributes?” This is His answer: “Draw nigh unto Me, and I will draw nigh unto you.” How do we draw near to Him? “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise.”

Our walk is progressive. He is made unto us salvation, deliverance, righteousness, sanctification, faith, wisdom, joy, strength, patience, love, healing, peace, rest and finally, resurrection. These are merely things to some. However, they are Jesus Christ Himself. And to know Him is to have and experience eternal life.

He proclaimed, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” He, in contradiction to all others, is the only way, all truth and eternal life. To think that He has expressed His desire to become this to us!

Again, He said, “I am the Bread of Heaven.” Has He become bread to us? He is the Light of the World, not just a light to shine on our pathway. Has He become to us all light? Or do we trust in another source? It may be someone else who is a godly teacher or friend. True, they have the light of Christ within, but as they reflect the light through their personalities, the rays of light become refracted, or perhaps diffused. Go to the only source of light—Jesus Christ our Lord.

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: the Lord Jehovah is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:2, 3). How positive is God’s Word. All that we shall ever need is in His well of salvation. He is the Living Water. Has He become unto us the fountain of living water springing up within, one from which we may draw the water of life freely at any given moment?

He is all light. He is the sun of righteousness with healing in His wings. He is able to appear to each of His own individually and simultaneously, and at the same moment be all to each one. As the sun is all things to all people, so the Son desires to become all things to all of His own. Does not the fullness of the Godhead dwell in Him? Yet, even as a cloud darkens the sun, so may clouds darken our spiritual skies and prevent the son from being all things to us. He has, however, made a provision for this by giving us His Spirit to keep our spiritual skies clear.

He is your Saviour, but has He become your salvation? You might ask, “Is there a difference?” Yes. Many, many are at the same place that they were when they were first converted. There has been little or no growth. He has not become to them their continuing salvation.

Has He given you wisdom for a particular situation in the past? Good. But has he now become your wisdom? Or one step further, has He become all your wisdom?

Most of us know Him as our healer, but how many of us know Him as our healing in all areas of our spirit, soul and body? This in itself is not the end. It is to be a continuing healing until He brings us into, or becomes to us divine health.

What is He to you this day? This moment? There is still more. All of our springs and sources must be in Him.

We, being but clay, forget that He dwells within. Conceivably after a short time, we will grow weary of hearing ourselves say, “Lord send me healing, deliverance, wisdom, faith,” or whatever it is that we want, and find ourselves silent. Then perhaps He will be able to get our attention long enough to say, “I have been with you and in you all of this time. Are you now ready to listen to me? Can you not believe, confess, and receive Me as your ALL? For that is what I want to be.” Possibly then many of us, even as Martha, will say, “Yes, Lord, I know that in that day you will be my . . .” Just then He will interrupt and say, “My Lamb, I am.” Then we will now that He is.

Lord, be unto us salvation, justification, redemption, sanctification, righteousness, healing, peace, joy, strength, faith, patience, holiness, love and life. Lord, we know that you desire to be all to us that You are. Lord, be all of yourself to Your own.
