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.

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew, a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-10).

“But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth his Son . . .” (Galatians 4:4).

In Ecclesiastes 3, I see some of what Jesus accomplished on the Cross. Although there is a view of who Jesus Christ is, it is not an overall picture. However, even if there were an overall picture, it could only be seen with a spiritual eye and therefore it could lonely be described in part. If only we could communicate effectively what our spirit sees! But, unfortunately, that would only lesson the intensity of seeking revelation ourselves.

When I look at Jesus Christ the man, who is also the Son of God, and see what He accomplished at Calvary, I can see in part who Jesus Christ is.

I see Jesus dying so that we may live and be born into Him. Christ planting in us that He may harvest that which we have matured into. Jesus died, voluntarily, that we may be healed by His shed blood. While speaking of Himself Jesus said, “Tear down the temple and I will rebuild it.” Jesus cried out at the Cross and we have the joy of the salvation He brought us. He mourned for us that we might dance.

Jesus went to the Cross alone so that we might be brought together by the unifying of His work; He embraced death that we might refrain from embracing death ourselves. He chose to keep us, not that we might hold on to what is evil, but so that we might choose to cast it away.

Jesus Christ rent His body and heart that we may be joined with Him in the Father. He was silent so that His life, death and resurrection may speak to us and our hearts. Jesus loved us and yet He hated sin. He battled hell so we may have the peace of victory.

“What gain has the worker from his toil?” –He has hearts, lives and all that we are and will be. A Bride holy and acceptable, joined together with Him in His sufferings and made joint partakers in His glory.
