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.

Have you ever thought about the Godhead, how God can be three in one?

"In the beginning God..." Gen 1:1.

The Hebrew word that is used for "God" is plural, meaning more than one. In the Godhead, God is spoken of as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

"For as the Father hath life in Himself; so hath He
given to the Son to have life in Himself." John 5:26.

"But I know Him: for I am from Him, and He hath sent
Me." John 7:29.

“He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man,
but God, who has also given to us His Holy
Spirit.” I Thess 4:8.

This can be shown in the following way.

GODHEAD - A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z. This includes all in all.

The Father, Jesus the Son, The Holy Spirit, are all within He who is all in all.

All three persons of the Godhead have the same essence or indispensable properties, but each has a different function or work.

God the Father - sovereign over all.

“Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and
not a God afar off? Can any hide himself
in secret places that I shall not see him?
Saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and
earth? Saith the LORD.” Jer 23:23-24.

God the Son - redemption.

“And the Word was made flesh” John 1:14.
“And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt
call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people
from their sins.” Matt 1:21.

God the Holy Spirit - the administrator.

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world,
but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know
the things that are freely given to us of God.” I Cor 2:12.
