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.

Fall 1995
The Brooding of the Holy Spirit
Wade E Taylor

Just as a mother hen sits upon the egg that contains the hope of a new generation, so also the Holy Spirit "broods" upon His people, seeking to birth the overcomer into a "witness" of who He is, and what He can do in this critical hour before the closing out of this age.

"To him that overcometh will I grant to sit
with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame,
and am set down with my Father in His throne.

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art
worthy to take the book, and to open the seals
thereof: for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed
us to God by thy blood out of every kindred,
and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast
made us unto our God kings and priests: and
we shall reign on the earth" Rev 3:21;5:9-10.

The world is seeing all that the enemy of God and of our redemption, can do. They are about to see a witness, or a foretaste of what our Lord is able to do, and will do in the Millennial age that is before us.

As many increasingly express their anger through violence and irrational acts, the Lord compassionately feels this frustration and offers hope to a world which is groaning for a redemption they do not understand. They protest and search, yet will not come to the One who offers life more abundantly.

Therefore, the Lord is moving upon those through whom He intends to reveal the hope of a new day, a birthing of that which will affect the problem at its root. The answer is to be found within the travail of the Holy Spirit for the Body of Christ, for there is no answer apart from the Lord. As the Church responds, the Lord will begin to move afresh in power, that lives might be delivered and changed.

The Lord is doing a deep work within His people to prepare them to stand and become an effective witness in this difficult and trying day. We are being enlarged so that which is within us will become a demonstration of the life which the Lord seeks to offer to the world.

As we lift our spirits and seek only that which is from above, all else will find its proper adjustment. This is essential if we are to overcome in this trying and difficult hour.

The Lord does not change, and is present to meet us and our need. As we open wide our hearts door, He will move upon us in visitation that His presence may flow out through us to those who are hurting.

May we ever pray, "Lord, reach down in a mighty deliverance that will release Your presence within my life. Enable me to enter into Your courts with thanksgiving and praise. Grant the quickening that will change and bring me into an alignment with Your highest purpose. May there flow out from my life a worship that will lift up and exalt Your Name, and a thankfulness for all You are doing in and through my life.

Lord, help us to recognize Your hand upon our lives and respond to Your desire to birth us into that which is beyond our own problems and needs, that you alone may be seen and known."
