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 Faithfulness of Our Lord

“His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.” Matthew 25:23 NKJ

He who called us is Faithful. We can rest in the fact that He will perform all that He has called us to accomplish. He also has called us be faithful in the outworking of these things. We can be self-fulfilled, or the Lord can be fulfilled by our life and work. In self-fulfillment, the Lord Himself is denied in that He is not realizing His desire and purpose through us. The Lord must see the travail of His soul and be satisfied (Isaiah 53:11).

He can only do this in communion with us, as He died for us. Therefore, the Lord ever seeks to draw us into a closer communion with Himself. When we have a personal encounter with Jesus, He will become our hearts desire and we will seek to see Him fulfilled through our communion with Him.

It is only when Jesus is being fulfilled in us that we can experience the full glory that He has given us through His sacrifice in our behalf. If self-fulfillment is put above His will and purpose for us, there will be a lack and barrenness, and the glory will not be manifested as the Lord desires. It must be His glory, and not another.

There are few who are willing to be obedient to the death-of-self in order for the Lord to abide within us and rule, where self once dwelt and ruled.

May each one of us make Jesus Lord over all that we are and have, and submit ourselves to Him, that His life may again be lived on earth, through our lives.
