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.

Communication From God
Charles Haun

Desire which is focused upon the Lord will open a door of communication with Him.

Moses had an intense desire for God. "Show me Your glory," he pleaded in Exodus 33:18. We have evidence that this desire moved within him in his early life. When Moses was young, God communicated with him, for he was aware then that God had called him to deliver his brothers from Egyptian bondage (Acts7:23-29).

The burning bush was one of the methods of communication from God to Moses(Exodus 3). At Mount Sinai, God called Moses to Himself for a very lengthy communication. According to Exodus 24:16, Moses ascended the mount and waited there in His presence for six days.

"And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai,
and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh
day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the

This extensive communication lasted 34 days, probably without interruption day or night, since Moses neither ate nor drank during that time (Deuteronomy 9:9). It appears that Moses did not sleep during this time for it would be hard to sleep with God that close.

God sometimes leads us into the fire in order to clean us out. Communications follow the burning of the dross. If we do not properly respond to the fire of God by failing to surrender to Him that which He is seeking, then the communication which God intended will not occur and great loss will result.

Once communication is established however, a messenger is born. This messenger becomes God's mouthpiece to those who have not met with Him, as Jesus testifies.

"The Son can do nothing of himself, but what
He seeth the Father do: for what things soever
He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
For the Father loveth (phileo) the Son, and
sheweth Him all things that Himself doeth:
and He will shew Him greater works than these,
that ye may marvel" John 5:19-20.

Without communication, Jesus would not know what his Father is doing. If He did not know, how could He accomplish His Father's will?

Communication is crucial. We must have it - even if it means experiencing the wilderness for a time to bring us to the place where we realize our need to hear from Him.
