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.

Saved To The Uttermost
June Taylor

God is in the process of changing “the understanding and expression of Christianity in one generation.” I believe we are that generation. The Church is in an astronomical transition – individually and corporately. There is an old chorus that says, “It’s a new hour; it’s a new day; it’s a new visitation in a new, new way: revealing the Father, exalting the Son, changing God’s people, and making them one.”

“Because you are saying, I am wealthy [in this world’s goods] and have gotten [spiritual] riches and have need of not even one thing, and because you do not have a clear and absolute knowledge of the fact that, as for you, you are poverty-stricken and blind and naked,

“I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire in order that you may be wealthy, and white garments in order that you may clothe yourself and in order that your shameful nakedness may not be made manifest, and eye-salve to rub on your eyes in order that you may be seeing. As for myself, as many as I am fond of, I reprove so as to bring out conviction and confession, and I discipline, correct, and guide.

“Be constantly zealous, therefore, and have a change of mind at once.” Revelation 3:17-19 Wuest

By His grace and mercy, the Lord is bringing us, the Church, the Bride of Christ, out of the lukewarm-ness of Revelation 3:15-17, through the corrective process of Revelation 3:18-19, and into the intimacy of Revelation 3:20-21.

“Consider this. I have taken My stand at the door and am politely knocking. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and I will dine with him and he himself will dine with Me.

“The one who gains the victory, I will give to him (the privilege and honor) of sitting with Me on My throne, as I gained the victory and sat down with My Father on His throne.” Revelation 3:20-21 Wuest

This voluntary opening of the door is our invitation for Jesus to commune with us, and to bring us into an experiential union with the Godhead through His Holy Spirit - the oneness that Jesus prays for in John 17.

Paul reminds us in Hebrews 7:25 that Jesus is able “to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them.” Amplified

When Jesus cried, “It is finished,” it really was finished for every human being throughout the ages. Nothing was left undone. Absolutely every human need is provided for. We have all things “in Christ” - freely given to whosoever will. We are complete in Him. In Romans 8:2, Paul tells us that “The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death.” We are new creatures, beloved of God, living a new life in a new realm, and of a different Kingdom.

For too long, the enemy has had a veil of blindness and deception over not only the world, but the Church as well, obscuring the perfect and complete salvation and relationship that can be ours through Jesus’ death and resurrection. But God desires us to see Him and know Him as He really is, and as Jesus fully revealed Him. He is “our” God, loving us beyond measure. He expressed His great mercy, grace, and kindness by giving to and for us, His beloved Son - the very life of Christ Himself. He has made us partakers of the covenant in Jesus’ blood. The life He gives is perfect, abundant, complete, nothing more to add.

His heart and desire for us, is expressed in His standing and knocking at our doors. Our part is to open up and receive Him. He calls us to come away with Him, and come into His presence with faith, great expectation, and confidence; and give Him access to the depths within – where “Deep calls to deep” and the Spirit of the Lord quickens and moves us into God, through Jesus - the Way, the Truth, the Life, and the Door.

The invitation is out. The door is open. The Spirit awaits. Will we turn aside and behold Him? Will we run after Him? Will we dine with Him? Will we lay down our own agendas, and sanctify ourselves to spend quality time alone with Him in His chambers, in daily fellowship and communion, beholding Him in the face of Jesus Christ?

It is time to throw off the grave clothes and tear down the refuge of lies that Satan has sown throughout the ages. Too many of us have been snared by these deceptions and have doubted the goodness and loving-kindness of our Father God toward us. We often have not understood the “utter completeness” of the cross, and the fullness of our redemption and salvation. But the veil has been rent; and as we approach Him, and as we observe how Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, perfectly reveal the love of our Father, the veils over our hearts and minds are pulled back.

Psalm 23 gives some great insights into David’s confidence in his God to fully satisfy every need a human being could have. In his God, there is no want. There is no lack. There is an abundance of every good and perfect gift. Jesus came to give abundant life for spirit, soul, and body. God gives the same way He taught us to give – joyfully, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, above and beyond.

We can come boldly to His throne of grace whenever we recognize our need. There is no “want” that the cross did not absolutely provide for – to the uttermost! No exceptions, or prerequisites. It was freely given. The price Jesus paid on the cross covers each one of us, totally – spirit, body, and soul (mind, will, and emotions) – down to the minutest detail, even to the number of hairs on our heads. Will we ever comprehend the fullness and completeness of our salvation?

To each one of us has been given “the measure of faith” needed to access the unlimited supply. Jesus is the Tree of Life, which is available to all. He calls us, and waits for us to come, so He can pour out. Let us open our mouths wide in expectation, get filled, and let the springs of living waters flow - God’s love and life and power flowing through us.

As Jesus was the perfect expression of the Father in his humanity, let us be ambassadors and extensions of His Life in this earth, representing the Father more fully and accurately. Let us take back dominion of our earth - establishing His kingdom, living, moving, and having our being in Him. Let us begin to give as freely as we have received, preaching the Good News, healing the sick, casting out demons, cleansing the lepers, and, yes, raising the dead – as an expression of the love and compassion of our Father toward the people He has created.

As we quiet our souls and the clamoring of our minds in His presence, and “wait on Him,” we will receive His strength to mount up with wings as eagles, to run and not get weary, and to walk and not faint. His intention for each member of the body is “wholeness” in union with Him. We are to present the totality of our being to Him, as temples to be filled with His presence, and as wells of living water, springing up and flowing out to the thirsty.

It is critical in these days that we put our trust in our God. He alone is the faithful covenant keeper. He is our Rock, our Shield, and our High Tower. He is our sufficiency in all things. As wickedness and treachery increase in this earth, we need to know where our help comes from, and to be ready to demonstrate and share the reason and source of our hope and confidence.

This is the time to be dwelling in the secret place of the Most High, under the shadow of His wings, feeding on Him, beholding Him, learning His ways, and being clothed again in His glory presence. Then, we will be equipped to distribute heavenly substance on earth.
