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.

The Power Of Anointed Prayer

"The Lord has called Me from the womb; from the
bowels of My mother has He made mention of My
Name. And He has made My mouth like a sharp
sword; in the shadow of His hand has He hid Me,
and made Me a polished shaft; in His quiver has
He hid Me; and said to Me, "You are My servant,
O Israel, in whom I will be glorified." Isa 49:1b-3.

This verse of Scripture transcends Israel and prophetically refers to our Lord Jesus Christ. However, it has been quickened to many as being a personal word of the Lord to them.

One may wonder how this very powerful word could possibly apply to the seemingly insignificant persons whom we are; but we are at the very heart of God's creation, and are involved in all that He intends to do concerning the earth.

We are birthed out from the Lord into an earthly realm, and then we are called to return back into His presence.

"To him who overcomes 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." Rev 3:21.

The realms of God may be portrayed in circles, with God on His Throne in the center, with concentric outward circles which lead to realms of diminishing closeness, until there is the periphery of outer darkness.

The sun, the moon, the rotation of the earth on its axis; all these exhibit God's design of circular flow. Ezekiel's free flowing wheels portray the moving power of the Spirit of God, able to move instantly to and fro in any given direction. Even in the cycles of nature, the rain falls from the sky, touches the earth, and then in another form, evaporates back up into the atmosphere, in a continuous circular pattern.

Consider the power and moving force that will overcome the kingdoms of the power of darkness, which are over the earth. It is anointed prayer; prayer that is birthed in the heart of God, carried into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, and then voiced back up to God, in this "full circle activity."

The Lord's heart desire is to have fellowship and union with those who freely choose to choose Him. He desires our will to be aligned with His, and He waits to hear from us before He releases His power.

This full union of thought and will was perfectly displayed in Jesus; and we are to be conformed to His image. Thus, it is the anointed Throne reaching prayers - our personal entrance beyond the veil into His Presence, that carries the substance of the moving power of God.

When this close union of heart, mind, and will is formed between God and the one who in prayer gives expression to this union, the circle of two becoming one is completed, and the Lord moves forth and acts in power as the central force, which is revealed in Ezekiel's wheels.

If only we realized more fully that we are to become the "wheel within the wheel."

"Whithersoever the Spirit was to go, they went, thither
was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up
over against them: for the spirit of the living creature
was in the wheels.”

"When those went, these went; and when those stood, these
stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the
wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of
the living creature was in the wheels." Ezek 1:20-21.

Let this understanding be applied to the Scriptures in which He has made my mouth like a sharp sword, and, you are My servant in whom I will be glorified.

God has said that every knee shall bow and confess that our Lord is the Lord of all lords. As we increasingly enter beyond the veil into His presence, we become one with Him in thought and will. In this union, as we voice His intended will in word and prayer, His mighty hand will move across the earth. By sovereign power, He will subdue kings and nations and they will indeed bow before Him.

Therefore, we must crucify all our own ways and press into the Lord, that He might reign in us. Only then will the earth come under the full Lordship of Jesus Christ.
