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.

The Seventh Man
Kelley Varner

“And he must needs go through Samaria . . . Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus . . . sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water . . . Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband” (John 4:4, 6-7, 16-18).

Jesus is the lid to Jacob’s well in the sixth hour. He who is our propitiation and mercy-seat (Romans 3:25) is seated on Jacob’s well. There is a Well on the well! The woman represents His body, the church (Ephesians 5:17-33). But this woman is not satisfied, for only He can satisfy (Psalm 107:9). She has had five husbands. She has been married to a frustrating experience, governed by her five natural senses. Yet she still comes faithfully each day with her earthen vessel to draw from that old nature. But no more, for it is noonday, when the sun is in its fullest strength. The light will never be any bigger or brighter than it is now. But what is this? There is a Man on the well! If she is to draw from that old nature, she will have to move Jesus out of the way.

Are you tired? Are you one of the outcasts of Israel? Do you come to the well at noon, rather than in the morning or evening, because those other women are talking about you? Is the bitter water of the well of Jacob worth the trip each day? Do you long for something more? Is there another well in your spirit that cries out to be filled with life? Then listen. There is a Man who wants to talk to you. His Father has arranged this meeting with you. This is your day! You will never be the same again!

The Man on the well will deliver us from the past frustration of being married to our five natural senses. He will heal and restore us from the misery of being yoked together with unbelief (2 Corinthians 6:14-18). He will pour in oil and wine, setting us free from the bondage of being in union with a walk that is governed by the natural senses.

We have tried those relationships, and they didn’t work. They left us broken, disappointed and empty. And so we brought our waterpot again and again, longing for something—anything—that will fill the inner void.

Her present lover is husband number six: the number of man. We have flirted with the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:15-17): all that is in the world that man longs for; all that is in the world to entice us away from the Man on the well; all that the world system is trying now, as it gropes blindly for satisfaction and purpose and fulfillment. The sixth man is our present lover. “Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread? And your earnings for what does not satisfy?” (Isaiah 55:2, Amplified Bible)

The Man on the well is the seventh man! He beckons you to come closer. He is not going to allow you to draw from Jacob’s well any more. Throw away the old waterpot. Cast it out (Galatians 4:30), and become a new waterpot that will reach into Him. He is the Well, and you are the waterpot. And the Well is deep (John 4:11; Psalm 42:7). “Deep calleth unto deep.” Be baptized and immersed into Him. Plunge into Him who is your refreshing. He is the sweet water and the living water. Cast the bitterness of those past relationships into Him, and be healed (Exodus 15:23-26)! “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7). “Casting the whole of your care—all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all—on Him; for He cares for you affectionately, and cares about you watchfully” (The Amplified Bible). “Unload all your worries on to him, since he is looking after you” (Jerusalem Bible).

Now, run into your city and tell everyone that you meet that a new day is come for all men. You are now the waterpot filled with His life. First a container, and now a dispenser of that life! “However, we posses this precious treasure (the divine light of the gospel) in . . . vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be of God and not from ourselves” (2 Corinthians 4:7, Amplified Bible).

Do you really want what the Holy Spirit now speaks to you? Is it really possible that you can partake of what you have heard? Is there more in God for you than you have ever realized?

The answer to all three questions is yes! All you have to do is drop the old, and become the new. Lay aside the weight that so easily besets you and come to Jesus. He is the perfect man, and you are complete in Him. Only He can fill the spiritual vacuum in your being. He has delivered you, and does deliver you, and shall deliver you (2 Corinthians 1:10). The seventh man is the overcoming, risen Lord. He will change your life!

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

“If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me . . . out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37-38

“And every thing shall live whither the river cometh.” Ezekiel 47:9

“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come! And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17
