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 Source of our Life and Ministry
Beulah Skinner

It is GOD HIMSELF, who labors when we labor only for God. He draws us nigh to Himself that His voice may be heard in the silence of our soul.

This requires the renouncing of our "Self" life and the death of our own will. This includes the inward subjection of all desires and sentiments of the heart, that we may enter into the wisdom of Jesus Christ. As we abandon our own ways, the love of Christ arises from that inner depth which rejects all that is not in unison with the heart of God.

The enemy can only reach that which remains of self, for true humility has its eye upon HIM, that HE may become all in all. "He that loveth his life shall lose it". Clinging to our soul life with all of its personal desires and hopes that truly cannot satisfy, can only lead to eternal loss.

HE longs to bring us individually to that bedrock fact of the "I" crucified with Christ, that this might become the foundation and new center of our life. Here, the HOLY SPIRIT will form a new life and purpose for us, fashioned after the man JESUS CHRIST.

The life of God in us is set free to act through us, as our self life is buried in death. The believer has only to see to the dying. As he is abiding in his death in Christ, whilst unknown to him, the LIFE OF GOD in him Is bringing forth fruit eternal, the grain of wheat life. It is silently bringing forth much fruit to the Glory of God, while no glory is attached to his own personality.

When Jesus said, "It is finished", He turned over to the Holy Spirit the substance of all of the promises he had given. Now they are there, waiting for all who choose to live in the spirit, to become the visible substance of these promises. We need to develop our spiritual senses in our new creation being. These must be developed in order to be in union with the HOLY SPIRIT senses, that are in union with the omnipresence of God.

The only way for the Holy Spirit to renew our minds so we can live in the Spirit is by practicing His presence. Soul life with all of its personal desires and hopes of gain cannot do this, but must go back to Calvary in a vital union of being grafted into the death of Christ. Then we can live In union with His own risen life which He obtained out of death against nature.

It is dying and not doing that produces a spiritual life. There is a severing between soul and spirit, so that the spirit is liberated to be joined to the RISEN LORD who is a quickening spirit, in resurrection power.

The Holy Spirit is to bring God's Sons into an ever increasing fullness to make Christ in His Body what He is in the sight of God. "The fullness of Him that filleth all in all". Paul had but one desire, "That I might know Him". We Christians need to be delivered from our low spiritual contentedness, we have such a small measure of HIS life, if only we were wedded to the Lord, instead to things.

If we just live by our own carnal wisdom, we rob HIM. We never really believe anything until we surrender ourselves to it. The more clearly we enter by faith into objective truth, the deeper and more practical will be the subjective work of the HOLY SPIRIT within us.
