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 Work of the Holy Spirit Within
Beulah Skinner

Peter writes to “. . . the elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ.” (I Peter 1:2) The Holy Spirit lives in, and has an intimate relationship with those individuals who are obedient. The Holy Spirit is the great power of God, and He, by His omnipotent but hidden activity, executes the divine purpose in those who are yielded, and seeking, for He proceeds from the Father. It is the Holy Spirit, who from the inward being of God, transfers holiness to the redeemed.

Where the Holy Spirit imparts the life of God, He also imparts and maintains the holiness of God. For this reason, He is called the “Spirit of Sanctification.” The Holy Spirit, by His holy power, watches over us and fulfills God’s purpose in the life of His Own willing ones! It is not possible for us to render the obedience that God demands, so He has made provision by bestowing on us the Spirit of Sanctification. He so renews our heart and inward nature, filling us with His holy and heavenly power, that it becomes possible to be obedient, as we recognize and trust explicitly in Him and His leading.

His inward activity is so gentle and hidden, He unites Himself so entirely with us and our endeavors, that we imagine it is our own thinking or willingness. However, He has already been the hidden worker. The Holy Spirit has been sent into our hearts that we might be partakers of the blessedness and power of the heavenly life that is our portion, through the sprinkling of the blood, which opens a free and bold entrance to God. The life of Jesus, glowing with love and devotion to the Father, dwells in the sprinkled blood which was shed from the sacrifice of “self” on the cross. It brings us into that self-sacrificing disposition, entirely surrendered to the cross, so that the power of the cross becomes the law of our life through the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Oh that we may realize and experience the power of the Holy Spirit fulfilling the living word in our lives. May we experience His substance within our spirit, soul and bodies, perfecting Christ Jesus, as Lord of all, to the Glory of God.
