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.

"Blessed is the man who hears Me, watching daily
at My gates, waiting at the posts of My doors. For
whoso finds Me findeth life, and shall obtain
favour of the LORD." Proverbs 8:34-35.

It is much more difficult “to be" than “to do." All too few understand the importance of this phase of our spiritual development.

Our tendency is to be active and busy, and we loathe the discipline of spending time in the presence of the Lord, waiting on Him. It takes great strength, along with much determination and patience, to wait in His presence, but when the Lord responds, we will enter realms that few have experienced.

To experience this realm of spiritual enlightenment in which we receive revelation, direction, and purpose, requires that we have a personal encounter with the Lord. For in Him are all the true riches of God for us. This takes more than our knowing the Scriptures and having spiritual gifts, we must press in and personally touch the Lord.

If we are to come into this revelation of the Lord Himself, we must travel a road that was not before known to us. Some are not willing to pay this price, or they miss because they do not understand the dealings of the Lord in this present time of transition.

To enter this higher realm of spiritual revelation and understanding means that we must move through enemy territory. Because the Lord has given us the armor to withstand the attacks of the enemy, we can press into the place where we will discover that Christ Himself is the prize. Many give up short of the goal, because the fight is so intense and our flesh so uncooperative.

We are living in the time of His Parousia, the personal revelation of Jesus to all those who are “looking for His appearing" (2 Tim 4:8). The Lord is at the door, seeking to reveal Himself to us in a greater, more manifest way than ever before.

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if anyone hears
My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and
will sup with him, and he with Me.

“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 3:20-21.
