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.

Making The Lord our King
Beulah Skinner

"Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more;
but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also"
John 14:19.

The power to become what He is, comes from our recognizing that within ourselves we can never become. We live, only as He "lives" within us. What a difference between trying to live a Christian life by our own strength, and inletting the Christ of eternity live out His life within us, hour by hour.

Once we have made Him our Lord, there is no longer room for self or self-will. He is to be the center of all. Everything must adjust to His sovereign will, then our bodies will indeed become His Temple. We have been bought at a terrific cost - the precious blood of Jesus - that we might glorify Christ in the totality of our being. We are to look to Him alone, for infinite resources are at His disposal in our behalf.

Suffering is the heart of the curriculum in the school of obedience and is for our education; earthly and heavenly. At times, suffering may seem purposeless, but it produces great value: the formation of the character and likeness of our blessed Jesus within us. These daily "little" crosses enable us to receive the fullness of His life and to rise above our circumstances, as we let Him reign.

What victory when He is made King of our lives. What responsibility is lifted from our shoulders! We have labored for years and failed, wrestling with our weaknesses and our problems. But when He is invited within and made ruler, He breathes His life into us and causes us to step out of the "Why?" of our human reasonings and the confusion of our vain imaginations. We are to be totally overcome by Christ Jesus and then submit ourselves to the rule of His Kingdom. For nothing can withstand the power of His indwelling presence.

Surely it is to be Himself only that is seen. Jesus died for me and He expects me to die for the brethren.

2 Corinthians 4:10-12 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
