Category: ARTICLE OF THE MONTH

Our Attaining to that Which is Best

Dear Friends in our Lord’s Purpose and Calling,

Each month I highlight one article written by my dad, Wade Taylor. As we begin the new year, I am praying earnestly as to what truths would be most helpful to set our hearts on.

The sense of “a new beginning” inspires many to make resolutions and decisions as they seek to attain that which is best in their lives. This month’s article speaks into that desire, giving keys to help maintain the quality of our spiritual life, guarding the progress we have made.

Overcoming Hindrances to Our Going Further

Wade E Taylor

“And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hidden in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now to the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Ephesians 3:9-11 

Intercession

by Wade E Taylor

 “But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly.”  Matthew 6:6

This speaks of the importance and the power of private, personal prayer.

Turn Us Again

Wade E Taylor

“For we are His workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has prepared that we should walk in them.”  Ephesians 2:10 Darby translation

The Lord seeks those who are sensitive and responsive to His presence, that they might be prepared and available to Him for whatever purpose that He might have.  Therefore, He “works” within us to accomplish His higher purposes through us.  These “good works” are the circumstances that He uses to accomplish this.  

The Keys of the Kingdom

Wade E Taylor

“And I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”  Matthew 16:19

This speaks of our having the “key” that will unlock the door of entrance into our having “kingdom authority.”  It will enable us to have a part with the Lord in cleansing both the heavens and the earth, in preparation for the coming Millennial Kingdom. 

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
