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.

Some are presenting truth and revelation from the Word of God as an end in itself, feeling that this is the mark of spirituality.

The revelation may be genuine and true to the Word of God, yet unless it effects a change within the lives of the Body of Believers through whom it was received, it is, in the words of I Corinthians 13:1, but sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal.

We are told in John 1:14 that "The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." The eternal creative Word; The Logos of God; the greatest revelation that God could give to man, His Son, was made flesh, and dwelt among us as Jesus of Nazareth.

That is, the written Word of God and the life experience of Jesus became one. Through His life, the world saw a visible demonstration of the outworking of the Word in His daily pattern of life. He never said one thing and did another. John clearly expressed this,

"That which was from the beginning, which we have
heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which
we have looked upon, and our hands have handled,
of the Word of life" I John 1:1.

Our daily walk with the Lord; our on-going fellowship with the Body of Believers of which we are a part; our relationships in the world; each of these areas must visibly reveal and show forth the effect of the written Word of God, and of the Revelations we receive - the Word becoming flesh.

In Acts 1:8, Jesus said, "Ye shall BE witnesses." Our spiritual maturity is not determined by the amount of, or the greatness of our revelations. Rather, our spiritual maturity relates to the consistent application of spiritual laws and truths to our lives. Israel saw the deeds of God, but Moses walked in the ways of God. Through the life of Moses, Israel was able to see the revelation of God.

If today, we were to begin living and practicing all we know of spiritual things, this nation would be shaken, and brought to God. Objective truth must first be experienced and personalized within us before it is really ours. The Word will have power only as the world "handles" us, and as a result, sees His life manifested through us. Then, they again will marvel and say, "Never man spake like this man ... for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes" John 7:46b, Matt 7:29.

Our Lord desires lives that conform to the Truth and Revelation coming forth in this hour; that the Word which He is speaking today might find its fulfillment in and through the lives of those whose hearts hunger to better know Him.
