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.

All that coincides with the will of God is truth. There is no need to go through a packet of definitions, or logic, to discover truth. All that is needed is to believe God, and take Him at His word.

When one takes God at His word, and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ, He becomes saved, with a witness by and of the Spirit of God, that He is now a child of God. In his heart, a person may know he is saved, and has become a part of God’s family.

Much of the time, “truth” is construed as anything that matches its definition. If a green object is said to be green, it matches its name, which gives it substance, and it is said to be true.

A contradiction exists when an object and its definition differ. If I say a green object is white, the object and its description differ, so it cannot be true. Any contradiction immediately establishes a falsehood. A contradiction cannot be true, because truth is based in God, and He does not contradict Himself.

If God contradicted Himself, He would cease to be God. God has revealed Himself in Scripture, and He has set His word above His name. He is committed by His very existence to “Truth.”

Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life” (John 14:6a). These three entities cannot be separated. When He expresses Himself as being the Way - the Truth and the Life are at once immediately expressed, along with the Way.

When Thomas asked, “How could he know the way?” Jesus could not answer only that He is the Way, but must answer with all three parts, as He is the answer to the ethical problem of the One within the Many. God exists as a triune Person. In this Person dwell three; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The One within the Many is solved. All that is true is in Christ Jesus. Pilate asked Jesus, “What is Truth?” to which Jesus did not respond. He did not answer Pilate because Jesus is the Answer. He said, “I AM the way, and the truth, and the life. When Jesus said, “I AM,” He is saying, I AM is God.

There are those who teach the “Fatherhood of God” and the “Brotherhood of man,” which is not part of the Scriptures. God is Father to all in a creative sense, but not in a relative sense. Only when one receives His Son as Savior and Lord, does God accept him as a son.

When this occurs, God sends His Spirit into that person’s heart to witness within him, that he is now in right relation to God, as Father and son. The truth of this is demonstrable in that when the Word of God is accepted and believed by an individual, he becomes what the Bible says he will become. This is true, and is truth.

The three necessities of a Life Philosophy are embodied in Jesus Christ, the revealed Truth of God: He is Truth. He is Life Eternal, and He gives this life to whomsoever He will.
