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.

Dear Banner Family,

To "Live in the Spirit" (Gal 5:25) speaks of our "state of being" that results from the act of Justification which we freely received when we accepted Jesus as our personal Saviour. We have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness, and are spiritually alive.

To "Walk in the Spirit" speaks of the fact that this new found "life in the Spirit" affects and alters my pattern of daily life. I no longer live as I once did. "Walking in the Spirit" means that the Lord has become the center of my life, and I seek to please Him in all that I do and say. As I continue to "walk in the spirit" in every aspect of my daily life experience, I am becoming pure before Him. "And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure" I John 3:3.

Past visitations experienced a fresh touch of "Life in the Spirit" along with the resultant blessings and gifts but failed to press on to "Walk in the Spirit." Because lives were not inwardly changed as to holiness of character and walk, these visitations gradually faded away.

The Lord is doing a present work of chastisement within His people to bring about the necessary correction so He will be able to draw those who earnestly seek Him into a full expression of "Walking in the Spirit." This will result in a restoration of confidence in the Christian witness to the world.

It is my prayer that the messages within the Banner will clearly present the urgent need to come into this experience of "Walking in the Spirit." Your prayer and financial support will be greatly appreciated that this message may continue to go forth to those who are seeking something more from the Lord than they are presently experiencing.

May our Lord grant to you, as you read this Banner "The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling," and what the riches of His inheritance in the saints" Eph 1:18.

I appreciate and answer each letter that I receive. Please continue to write. Thank you for you prayers and support. Both are needed.

Wade E Taylor
