To this day, I sure miss my spiritual father, Wade Taylor, who went home to be with the Lord in 2012. He taught me so much and we prayed nearly every day together on the phone!
I sure appreciate his daughter Nancy Taylor Warner carrying on his ministry and legacy as she releases timeless teachings from Wade on a regular basis.
I find often that what she releases from Wade is really a NOW word for the Body of Christ. Many have been saying that God is increasing our Kingdom authority and giving us keys as Wade says here:
Now find out how you can access these keys and much more as you read through this excellent teaching by Wade Taylor. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
"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.
"And has made us to our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth." (Revelation 5:10)
"We are to 'dress and improve' the world of our day and time.
The "kingly" aspect will enable us to affect the earthly realm through our overcoming obedience. The "priestly" aspect will enable us to affect the heavenly realm through our worship and communion with the Lord.
"And he that overcomes, and keeps My works to the end, to him will I give power over the nations, and he shall rule them with a rod of iron..." (Revelation 2:26-27)
Submitting to Divine Governmental Rule
For us to be ready to function in Kingdom authority in "that day" means that there must be a present ruling (overcoming) within our lives. We will never be qualified to rule others unless we have first submitted ourselves to divine governmental rule over us.
When Israel entered the Promised Land, they were told to slay all of the inhabitants of that land. The names of these nations can be related to "the works of the flesh." Thus, we also must first slay the "inhabitants" of our land (carnality), before we will be ready to partake of this promise: "We shall reign on the earth."
These "inhabitants" that must be slain are very busy manifesting themselves within us as these "works of the flesh." Thus, they must be utterly slain in order for us to become the "habitation of God" (priestly role), and begin to "rule all nations" (kingly role).
There must be present within our spiritual life experience the dealings or workings of the Holy Spirit to produce the necessary quality of character that will make us ready to rule with the Lord in that day.
Walking Through Locked Doors
The Lord must be able to trust us with the use of these "keys of the Kingdom" which can unlock and open the door that will lift us into a cooperative relationship with Jesus, which will lead to the establishing of the Millennial Kingdom. (Photo via Pixabay)
"I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears and opens..." (Revelation 3:20)
The Lord can walk through any locked door. But He waits for a response on our part before He will enter into a Kingdom relationship with us. By prophetic revelation (the Spirit of Prophecy), Peter identified Jesus as being the Messiah and as a result, he received the keys of the Kingdom.
The Lord is waiting for an action on our part, as He stands at the door, knocking and waiting, for us to use our key (the spirit of prophecy) to open the door. There is a present work that we are to do which requires the use of this key.
"So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female... and God said to them, 'Be fruitful, and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion..." (Genesis 1:27-28)
The Glory of the Last Adam
Jesus came to His disciples walking on water. He cursed the fig tree and immediately it withered. In Revelation 3:21, the Lord said that we are to overcome as He also overcame. If Jesus used His deity to do these things we have a problem because we are not deity.
Instead, Jesus, as the "last Adam" fully overcame, and thus received the "dominion" that Adam had forfeited. As a "new creation man" Jesus used this authority to walk on water and to curse the fig tree.
In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve acted in disobedience by eating of the tree of knowledge (self). They forfeited the authority and dominion that had been given to them. Jesus faced this same testing in the wilderness when He became intensely hungry. He refused to turn stones into bread and eat at the word of satan, as Eve had done. As a result, Jesus regained this lost dominion.
"...they must be utterly slain in order for us to become the "habitation of God" (priestly role), and begin to "rule all nations" (kingly role)."
"And the Lord God took the man, and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it." (Genesis 2:15)
The Lord created a beautiful environment, which Adam was commissioned to dress or improve.
"And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking... in the cool of the day..." (Genesis 3:8)
Dressing and Improving Our Environments
During the day, Adam rearranged or improved the Garden of Eden. Then in the evening the Lord, the Creator of the universe, came to see what Adam had accomplished during the day. As they walked together, Adam pointed out to the Lord the things he had changed. The Lord found great satisfaction in this, as the Lord takes pleasure in the works of our hands.
In redemption, we also have been given a word. We are to "dress and improve" the world of our day and time. As a result of the authority that Jesus gained in His victory over satan, we have been given the "keys of the Kingdom" which gives us authority to rule over or to affect our environments.
When Jesus comes to walk with us in our present environments, He should find pleasure and satisfaction in what we have accomplished, because we have been given the "key" that will unlock and release the enemy's grip on the governments that rule the nations. Our neighborhood, city, state and nation, should be affected by us as we exercise this authority.
There are areas in or near where we presently live, that if the Lord were to say, "You and I will go for a walk this evening in that area," we would have to say, "Lord, it is not safe to walk there at night." But we have been given dominion, and there should be a present expression of the higher realm of authority that we will be given in "that day" to rule on the earth in order to establish the Millennial Kingdom of God.
A Part in Singing This New Song
This means that our ministry, our prayer life and our words should be affecting the place where we live. Only then can Isaiah 14:5-8 be fulfilled:
"The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers; he who struck the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he who ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and no one hinders. The whole Earth is at rest, and quiet: they break forth into singing. Indeed the cypress trees rejoice over you, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, 'Since you were cut down, no woodsman has come up against us." (Photo via Unsplash)
Then, the Kingdom will become as Jesus said it is to be, a place of "righteousness, peace and joy."
If we have rightly used the "keys of the Kingdom" that presently are being offered to us, we will also will have a part in singing this new song. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
