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 Importance of Our Worship
Lindee Bingham

Our Worship is the highest form of Spiritual Warfare. As we give expression to worship, an insulation is formed between us and the powers of darkness, and they are hindered in the outworking of their purposes, as pure worship flows up to heaven unhindered.

Worship is the expression of pure adoration to the Lord. Praise is thanking the Lord for who He is, and for all that He has done in our behalf. The Bible is very vocal concerning “praise” and all of its benefits. But worship is very different.

Whereas we are given ample instruction on “praise,” we are given no instruction on “worship,” other than the fact that it must be done in “spirit and truth.” This is because worship is an intimate joining of our spirit with the Spirit of God. Thus, it cannot be taught, but must be experienced.

We were created in His image and given the capacity to commune with our creator, “Spirit to spirit.” It is not necessary to have this capacity to “praise.” The Word talks about the sun, moon, stars, etc, praising the Lord – but none of these can worship Him.

David “praised” the Lord with all his might – but we cannot “worship” with all our might, but only through the power of the Holy Spirit. Worship comes at a much higher price than praise. In our meetings, many are willing to “praise” the Lord, especially in the excitement of those responding to music. However, when we are drawn into the “act of worship,” we must leave the realm of sense and outward activity to commune, “deep unto deep.”

It is an awesome gift to have been created to bring fulfillment to the heart of God through our worship.
