Each SPRING, in anticipation of a harvest, much effort is
put into preparing soil and sowing seed into it. Summer brings
into full manifestation the potential that was within each
of these seeds that had been committed to the soil in hope.
However, the anticipated harvest does not just happen.
Throughout the heat of the SUMMER (His present dealings),
much effort is extended (by the Holy Spirit) to make sure
that this harvest (our being made ready for His purposes)
will be the best possible.
The quality of the harvest in the FALL season (which is presently
upon us), will be greatly affected by the amount of SONshine
(Jesus) and the Rain (Holy Spirit) that had fallen upon this
soil. Thus, our understanding this process and our cooperation
with the Holy Spirit in its outworking is essential.
Our Heavenly Father, in hope, has sown seed into each of
us. He sows the Word of the Kingdom into the lives of those
who have made an effort to prepare "receptive" spiritual
soil, and then He waits for the time of harvest.
It is very evident at this present time that the Lord is
actively doing His part. This places a great responsibility
upon each one of us that we do our part in the preparation
of our spirits to receive the very best seed that our Heavenly
Father has to sow. This is the very heart of each message
within the Banner.
At this present time, there are many indications that the
Lord is beginning a fresh work among His people in preparation
for an abundant harvest. It is our prayerful desire that the
Banner might be an instrument in the hands of the Lord to
encourage each one of us to better prepare the soil of our
hearts that in "that day" the Lord, along with us,
might partake of an abundant harvest.
It is my prayer that this issue of the Banner will be both
a blessing and a challenge to you as you read it. Any comments
you may have will be appreciated, and, your financial help
will help make it possible to continue. Both are needed and
I wish to thank each one of you that have sent the names
of those you feel would appreciate receiving the Banner. These
names have been added and will receive this issue of the Banner.
I trust that more of you will send in the names of those you
feel have a desire to better know the Lord, and would appreciate
May our Lord richly bless and strengthen you through this
issue of the Banner
In His Love,
Wade E Taylor
