Inviting the Lord Within

by Wade E Taylor

“My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, He stands behind our wall, He looks forth at the windows, showing Himself through the lattice.  My Beloved spoke, and said to me, Rise up, My love, My fair one, and come away.”  Song of Solomon 2:9-10

At this present time, within the Church, the Lord is especially stirring individuals who have been seeking “something more,” without really understanding what they are searching for.  Many of these are thinking, “What is happening to me?”  This is because they are being drawn away from any satisfaction with, or dependence upon that which is less than the Lord’s best.

Our Becoming Transparent

Wade  E  Taylor

“And before the throne there was, as it were, a sea of glass like crystal: and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind.”  Revelation 4:6 NAS

This speaks of “overcomers” who are in the midst of, and round about the Throne.  These are seen as being as a “sea of glass,” or as being totally transparent in the presence of the Lord.

Our Being Faithful

Wade E Taylor

“John to the seven churches which are in Asia… even from Jesus Christ, The Faithful Witness, the First-born from the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood and made us kings and priests to God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”  Revelation 1:4-6 

Contrasting Circles of Relationship

Wade E Taylor

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:2-3

These “mansions” are not buildings in heaven.  The word translated as “mansions” is the same as the word “abode” in John 14:23. 

A Present Word

Wade E Taylor

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.”

“After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show you things which must be hereafter.

Putting The Lord First

Dear Friends in our Lord’s Purpose and Calling,

A promise I love is found in Zechariah 1:3. “…Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.”

What a promise! Putting the Lord first is more than our devotional time each morning. It is an attitude of heart where we seek to know the mind of Christ in situations we face, walk in His ways, first and foremost pleasing Him.

Our Identity

Wade E Taylor

“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”  Philippians 2:5-8

Two Trees

Wade E Taylor

“And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil  And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.”  Genesis  2:9, 16-17 

Our Being Anointed

by Wade E Taylor

“He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.”  Revelation 3:22

Jesus is not referring to our natural ability to hear, but rather, to our “inner spiritual ear” through which we receive the “anointed” Word of God.  Because our spiritual ear is tremendously important, this word concerning our spiritual hearing is repeated in each of the messages to the seven Churches.

Patience in Waiting for the Lord

Wade E Taylor

The purpose of the written Word of God is not just being a record of past history, but rather, to guide us into a present, active relationship with the Lord, and also as an admonition, to enable us to learn the “ways” of the Lord.

When Jacob and Esau were born, a word was given to the mother that the elder would serve the younger, which was contrary to their culture.  Later, this was told to Jacob and he pondered how this could happen. 

A Call to Come Higher

Wade E Taylor

“The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying to Him, Get thee out, and depart hence; for Herod will kill You. And He said to them, You go, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day, I shall be perfected.”  Luke 13:31-32

Peter gave us the principle that a Scriptural “day” can be considered as being a “thousand year” period of time.

Which Church Do You Attend?

by Wade E Taylor

“Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked?”  Revelation 3:17

Those within this church are satisfied and content with their present spiritual condition.  They do not realize that the Lord’s active involvement in their lives is not a present ongoing experience, as their trust is in all that they possess (rich and increased with goods). 

The Set of our Spirit

by Wade E Taylor

“Looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the Throne of God.”  Hebrews 12:2

We are exhorted to set the gaze of our spirit upward toward Jesus, whose life was openly displayed for us to look upon.  We are to both consider and meditate upon the example of His life, as the pattern for our lives.
