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 Call Of The Lord
By Wade E. Taylor

"Deep calleth unto deep. At the noise of Your
waterspouts, all Your waves and Your billows
are gone over me." Psalm 42:7.

"Deep calleth" tells us that our Lord is a seeking God who is constantly calling out, seeking those who will respond to His desire for communion and fellowship.

"At the noise of Your waterspouts." This is seen as being "noise. In the initial stages of our being apprehended by the Lord, we do not understand His voice or dealings. Often, our response may not be the one the Lord had desired, but He continues to call out to us, ever seeking to bring us higher, that He might enjoy times of communion with us.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is
the kingdom of heaven." Matt 5:3.

Even when we make mistakes, if our heart attitude toward the Lord is right, He will continue to walk with us, knowing that we will gradually, increasingly come to understand His voice and ways, and as a result the noise He hears will become a song of rejoicing and worship.

This song that the Lord so desires to hear is unique to our personal life experience. No one else could ever sing this song, as they have not walked as we have. The Lord will look to us, as if we were the only person in the universe, for He desires to hear this song.

Quite often, we should thank our Lord for His patience with us in waiting to hear the song that He so desires to hear. This desire is so intense, that He will continue to patiently wait.

When Adam failed the Lord in the Garden of Eden, he hid from the presence of the Lord. It was the Lord who said, "Adam where are you." When Adam responded with his excuse (noise), the Lord took a step toward him, covering him with the skin of an animal that their fellowship might be restored. This was the first blood sacrifice for sin.

In the parable of the sower, Matthew chapter 13, the sower goes forth with seed. The Word tells us that this seed is "the Word of the Kingdom." As we rightly respond to produce "good soil," this seed will gradually develop and the "noise" will become a clear pathway, which leads to the Kingdom.

"He answered and said unto them, Because it is given
unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of
heaven, but to them it is not given." Matt 13:11.

In Revelation, it is the Lord who stands at the door, knocking, in order to seek out those who will hear and respond. He is far more interested in us than we are in Him. This may be hard for us to believe, but it is true. All we need do is to become quiet and listen, and the Lord will direct us to Himself.

When we respond to this "knock," we will be brought up into His chambers, where our life becomes one with His in communion and purpose.

"After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened
in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as
it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said,
Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which
must be hereafter." Rev 4:1.

"All your waves and billows are gone over me." My life is now lost in His life. I have found the purpose for which I was created. Now my song has merged into His song, and they have become one.

"And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne
was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” Rev 4:2.

Now I have only one purpose in life. To reflect the life and desire of the one seated upon His Throne, our Lord Jesus Christ.

The noise has indeed become a song.
