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.

Food for Thought
After Six Days
Wade E Taylor

"And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James,
and John his brother, and bringeth them up into
an high mountain apart, And was transfigured
before them: and his face did shine as the sun,
and his raiment was white as the light. And,
behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias
talking with him" Matt 17:1-3.

There were twelve disciples, but Jesus took only Peter, James, and John (three within the twelve) up into the mount apart. Here, He was transfigured before them in radiant glory, and Moses and Elijah appeared with Him.

According to our text, this transfiguration occurred "after six days." The context does not indicate six days from when. Thus, it might be said that this word is prophetic, referring to the end of the 6th day, just before the Millennial day, the 7th day.

Calendar and prophetic time are not necessarily the same, but there is a relationship. For this reason, all the second-coming predictions have failed. (Wade is referring to predictions that Jesus would return in the year 2000 because “It was the end of 6000 years [The six days of creation being a millennia or a thousand years each] – I heard all this nonsense in the 1970’s and never subscribed to these vain imaginations of men.{Editor Note}All these hundreds and hundreds of predictions of Christ's 2nd coming have failed because all these men are false prophets and speak out of their own souls) In prophetic time, or God's timetable, from Adam to Abraham was two days. From Abraham to John the Baptist was another two prophetic days. And from Jesus to our day is almost two days. Thus, the end of the 6th day is at hand.

Moses and Elijah each had a unique ministry that greatly affected the Lord's people of their day. The fact that they appeared with Jesus at the time of His transfiguration speaks of a last-day ministry during which the Lord will appear in His glory to a people within a people (three within twelve) for a special purpose.

While on earth, Moses was uniquely prepared (wilderness) by the Lord to deliver His people, Israel, who were in bondage to the world system of that day. Because the straw for the bricks they were forced to make had been taken from them, they had to provide their own without diminishing the number of bricks made. Making bricks without straw relates to our day. This can be interpreted as inflation - money without gold backing and thus of little value.

This provoked them to cry out to the Lord for deliverance. The Lord heard their cry and they were promised a land that flowed with milk and honey. Through the ministry of Moses, Israel was delivered from "commercial bondage" and brought into Canaan which was to be a Theocratic Kingdom.

Elijah also was uniquely used by the Lord to deliver the Lord's people from a bondage of another kind; "religious bondage." In that day, the prophets of Baal were in control. The Lord told Elijah that the time had come for the people to make up their mind as to whom they would serve - the false religious system of that day, or the Lord of Hosts. Thus, the contest as to who really was Lord. The Lord answered by fire, and as a result, the prophets of Baal were slain and Israel was set free to truly worship and serve the Lord alone.

Moses delivered the Lord's people from a false economy. Elijah delivered them from a false religious system. These two ministries represent a total deliverance. It appears that we are in the preparation stages to receive a double portion; comparable ministries that will release the Church from its bondage into its place of provision and glory.

As we approach the end of the sixth day, an evident work of preparation is taking place within many. These are being set free from an outward form of religious service and are being birthed into a true spirituality. The Lord is at work, stripping away the past dead religious works, and releasing a flow of new wine and oil whereby these are enabled to move under the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit into the end time purposes of the Lord.

This can best be expressed by saying, "These are being birthed." Yet the birth channel is awfully dark, and we cannot yet relate to that into which we are being projected.

We are approaching the Millennial day in which there is coming a mighty deliverance from the religious bondages of our day. Therefore, it is of primary importance that we hear and obey all that He is saying to us, no matter how dark it may appear at this present time.
