that has fascinated me for years is beginning to come into
clear focus within my being. "And they heard the voice
of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day,"
Gen 3:8a. A voice does not "walk," thus, the Lord
is telling us something about Himself.
Because true communication requires a response, the Lord
seeks intelligent communion with us. Our response is found
in our heart love for the Lord, and in the necessary expression
of these feelings.
The "heart" of the message within each issue of
the Banner is intended to encourage the development of an
active, intimate vocal relationship with our Lord. Therefore,
the messages within the Banner are subjective in their form,
yet are built upon a true interpretation and understanding
of the Written Word.
It is my prayerful desire and intention that through reading
the Banner, you will be drawn into a closer fellowship and
active daily walk with our Lord.
God created the world and all that pertains to it in six
days, and rested the seventh day. Peter tells us that a day
is as a thousand years. In prophetic time, man is given six
days (six thousand years) and the coming Millennial day of
the Lord, one day (one thousand years). Presently we are in
the year 1993AD, leaving only seven years for the completion
of man's time. It is commonly taught that seven years of tribulation
precedes the Millennial day. Thus, if this were literal, we
would already be in the beginning of this time of tribulation.
And indeed, we are very close.
We are living in the last days, and during a time when the
world is becoming increasingly antagonistic to the Church.
It is becoming essential that we pray before we dare venture
from our homes. Tribulation is at hand. It is urgent that
we come to know the Lord and His voice as never before.
The Banner is intended to become spiritual food for all who
desire to know the Lord and, His voice. We must have clear
direction from Him in these critical last days.
It is very important that we hear from you, that the Banner
may continue to be available as "A Voice Crying in the
Wilderness" of our day. If you know those who would benefit
from this message, please send their names to us. Your gift
to help cover the costs will be deeply appreciated.
Thank you for your prayers, and for the financial help that
makes the operation of the Bible School, and the printing
and distribution of the Banner possible.
In His Love,
Wade E Taylor
