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.

Dying to the Life of the Natural Man and
Living Only to the Will of God
by Beulah Skinner

Upon receiving revelation truth from God, the believer's spirit enlightens the mind so it can be communicated. Therefore, to walk after the Spirit, we must have our mind set upon the things of the Spirit.

When we are responsive and obedient to the Holy Spirit, the Father provides His gift of faith. Then our mentality becomes Spirit controlled and can detect any movement of the Spirit. This is the reason our mind must always be alert to hear from the inner man.

By living a crucified life through our identification with Jesus in His death and resurrection, we unceasingly are to put to death all the members of our body lusts, and quench every tendency of our soul to lean on its own strength. The Lord desires us to come to Him in a spirit of deep dependency, to be completely submissive to His Holy Spirit and humbly wait upon Him.

We must have a heart of utter trust in a complete reliance upon the Holy Spirit. If our flesh is under the death of Christ crucified, Satan cannot act. He knows that when our self life is resurrected, or even if the "good" side of our flesh (self righteousness) is allowed to live, he has a base from which to operate. The cross must be an ever progressive experience in our lives.

To walk in the Spirit is to quietly dwell in the Spirit and not be influenced by our soul powers. The more the life of the Holy Spirit flows into our spirit, the more the cross will work and we will be delivered increasingly from our old creation.

We are not only foreordained unto adoption as sons through Jesus Christ unto Himself, but we are the very stones of the building which is growing up into a temple of God.

How great is the destiny to which we are called. Through our being indwelt by God, we are being built together for a habitation of God.
