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.

Ruling and Reigning with Christ

We often hear the term today of “being called into the ministry.” But, in the fuller understanding of this term, we are all called to be ministers of the Gospel.

In Ezekiel's vision, recorded in Chapter 44 of Ezekiel, two realms of ministry are established. Concerning the first, “And the Levites that are gone away far from me, when Israel went astray, ... Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having charge at the gates of the house, and ministering to the house: ... Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity: ... and they shall not come near unto me.” Ezek 44:10-13

Of the second order, He says this: “But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and blood, saith the Lord God: They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near to my table, to minister unto me and they shall keep my charge.” Ezek 44:15-16

In the verses that follow, the Lord makes it very clear that He has a very specific work and place for these Zadok priests who have qualified by their obedience and pure heart towards the Lord. These will be given the privilege and honor of entering into the Holy of Holies and of coming into the very presence of the Lord.

These also have a very special ministry that they are to accomplish. Therefore, they are instructed to live a clean, pure and separated life. “And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and the profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.” Ezek 44:23

We must now consider what it takes to qualify for this higher realm of ministry in our day. We are not born into it, as were the priests of old. But, we are given an opportunity to live and walk thru life's journey in such a way that we qualify as an overcomer and find ourselves in the place of identification with our Lord in His throne. Then we will be qualified to rule and reign with Him. See Rev 3:21 and Rev 5:10.

In these last days, many will be found in the place of the first group of Levites and come short of the Lord's calling and purpose. He is waiting for those who will “hear” and come up into this higher realm of ministry.
