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.

Like Jude, we need again to cry aloud, "Oh, that we might earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints." The religious mixture of today bears no comparison to the glory that descended only forty years ago in 1948, and again in 1953 (Latter Rain Visitation). Yet the glory evidenced in the early days of that two-pronged visitation was but a shadow of the Upper Room, and the early Church visitation.

This early Church visitation was a product of the "Feast of Pentecost, "as was also the 1948-1953 visitation that landed on the rocky beach of Nicolaitanism and Laodiceanism. From Scripture, it can be seen that the anointing and measure attained in the early Church was only a shadow of that which is to come to those who enter into "The Feast of Tabernacles," now beginning to envelop some of God's end time overcomers.

Lord, help the true Body of Christ as it struggles to leave "the place of ordinances" (Passover) and "the place of leaven" (Pentecost) in order to "join You outside the camp, bearing Your reproach," in "the place of Your Presence" (Tabernacles).

The 1948-1953 visitation was recorded by historians as consisting o great numbers. But those with spiritual eyes saw it as "a visitation within a visitation" that was composed of few, numerically. They saw that there were many who in one way or another joined themselves to this visitation and warmed themselves by the "fire" that evolved, but were never consumed by that fire. On the other hand, they could see that those who really entered into the Lordship of Christ were few in "quantity," but great in "quality."

Again, as so often in history, God is allowing this dual work; a worldly emphasis on "quantity," and a spiritual emphasis on God's Kingdom work of "quality."

Have you joined with the great majority of a former "quality" dimension that has somehow let down the spiritual high mark enough so they can no longer recognize what is not of Spirit, but is of the soul nature, if not of the flesh? Have you crossed over some divide where you have, perhaps unknowingly, mixed together "quantity" and "quality," and do not even know it? It is primarily to these who have unwittingly become a people of "mixture" that this exhortation is directed.

Those who are non-compromisers understand what God is saying: His purity and presence are available only through paying a price, not through obtaining a new found dimension that combines "quantity" and "quality." Jesus continues to exhort His own to:

"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate,
and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be which go in there at: Because strait
is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto
life, and few there be that find it" Matt 7:13-14.

Many of the present day leaders are not teaching God's people how to make Him the one and only Lord of their lives. His way is narrow, and few find it. Those few are beginning to realize that the popular "wide gate" being advanced today is not of God.

In contrast to most present thinking, the gate is not wide, but narrow, and "few there be that find it." It is my prayer and
