Maintaining Peace!

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 30, 2009:

The stress caused by the issues of life have the potential to create stress in your physical body. Now is the time to deal with the issues and to tie up loose ends that keep you from maintaining peace emotionally, mentally and physically. Do not delay in taking care of these matters; procrastination is your enemy. Be diligent to methodically and consistently keep moving towards freedom and tranquility, says the Lord.

Job 27:21 Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you.

One may have awakened around midnight again.  One may have spent time writing down the events in one’s life.  One may have dozed back off to sleep.

The alarm went off at 3:00 AM.  One reset if for 3:20 AM.  At the sound of the alarm one laid there for just a few minutes more.  Finally, one may have gotten up and logged onto one’s computer.  The screen may have been locked.  One’s mouse was not responding to the clicks, yet the pointer would move around on the screen.

One could not believe this was happening. One prayed a quick prayer for help.  One needed to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin before one’s prayer time.

One may have rebooted the computer.  At first the mouse was quirky, still not responding to the clicks.  The mouse finally responded, one logged in and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

It may have been 3:30 AM when one entered the bathroom.  One started cleaning and praising at the same time.  One thanked the Lord and confessed one’s sins.

Confessing one’s sins took all of one’s time to the point that one had to finish up quickly, before 4:30 AM.

At 4:30 AM, one logged onto the site where one may pray for prayer requests.  Everything went smoothly.  Thank you Jesus!

One’s stomach may be upset and hurt from time to time.  One may believe one picked up whatever one’s grandson had.  One may not have a fever or any other symptoms.  Thank you Jesus.

One made a decision about the apostle who one felt compelled to pray for.  The desire to contact the individual became very strong, yesterday.  Just as one was about to contact the individual, one pulled back.  One began to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletins, starting from the most recent first, looking for help from the Lord.

The message from 10/28/09 spoke to one:

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 28, 2009:

Be aware and watch for the enemy’s devices that will saddle you with imposition as he pressures you to act out of a sense of obligation instead of being moved by My Spirit. Just as you, My people, are learning to move in the unbridled liberty of the Spirit, the devil will do his utmost to keep you bound by religious exercise. Recognize it and refuse to be brought into bondage in any way, says the Lord. Obligation has its roots in a spirit of fear. The fear of rejection results in being a people-pleaser.

1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts.

One may have felt obligated to share what one had experienced with the apostle.  Thoughts came to one’s mind about the possible consequences if one did not say anything.  One felt fear.  One’s mind may have been under attack.  Satan is a liar and the accusations just would not stop.  These may be the very things the Lord warned about.  One let go of this issue completely and gave it to Jesus.

Victory Is To The Overcomer!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 29, 2009:

Victory is to the overcomer; it is not something that comes to you automatically or without effort. You have to seize it, take it by force. It is success in the struggle. I tell you this so that you will not take the position of a powerless victim. I have called you to be overcomers, conquerors, triumphant in all things. Refuse to allow the enemy to victimize you. Rise up and take your rightful position, says the Lord.

Romans 8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

One may have awakened around midnight.  One may have read some more of “Unmasking the Jezebel Spirit” by proven prophet, John Paul Jackson.

One’s stomach may have been hurting and one’s right foot and ankle were swollen.  One may have a few scratches on one’s right foot caused by one’s cat and wondered if this caused the swelling.  One’s left foot may still be in a cast.

One decided to go back to sleep so that one would not repeat the previous day’s events of becoming super tired and unproductive toward the end of one’s prayer time with the Lord as well as being very tired while praying for outstanding prayer requests on a particular website.

When one awakened, it was after 5:30 AM.  One had slept through one’s appointed prayer time.  One did not hear the alarm go off at 3:00 AM or the subsequent repeats that followed.  One apologized to the Lord and asked for forgiveness.

One went into the bathroom, prepared it and began one praise time at 5:51 AM.  One had a hard time praying.  One’s stomach was still hurting.  One’s mind may have been on “Unmasking the Jezebel Spirit” and the apostle who came to one’s mind suddenly while reading the book on 10/25/09.  One prayed for the apostle and the other individual again.  One also prayed and asked God to take it away these thoughts if this was not Him.  The thoughts remained and may be present as one may write.

One did get through praising, confessing of sins, thanking the Lord and a general prayer for the sick.  After that, one slipped into deep thought again about the apostle.  Lord Jesus, please lead and guide one into what it is you want one to do, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

One may have finished one special time with Jesus at 6:51 AM.  One may have gotten on the computer and went to several websites, including Face Book and WordPress.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for prayer requests around 10:15 AM.  One read the praise reports first which encouraged one.  One went on to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

Bound By Religious Exercise!

It’s All About Jesus!

Just as you, My people, are learning to move in the unbridled liberty of the Spirit, the devil will do his utmost to keep you bound by religious exercise.

1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts.

One may have awakened around midnight, tweaked one’s blog design and visited other sites as well.

One’s grandson may have been sick since Sunday.  One may have given the child medicine with something to drink this morning.  The child complained that their tummy was hurting.  Just before 3:00 AM, one’s grandson threw up on the bathroom floor.

Note: The child has not had any medicine since throwing up, does not have a fever presently but has experienced an upset stomach briefly this morning and may be fine at this present time.  Thank you Jesus for answering one’s prayers!

When the child threw up, one decided to clean the whole entire bathroom.  One may have finished cleaning the bathroom close to 3:30 AM.  One quickly checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today, then returned to the bathroom for one special time with the Lord.

One started on time and was fired up with joy.  One’s right hand had been hurting to the point that one had to use one’s left had to open a bottle of soda.  One’s grandson had grabbed one’s hand  a few days ago and one may have said, “No, my hand hurts.” The child began to move one finger at time, starting with the pinky finger.  There was no pain.  The child moved on to the next two fingers, no pain.  When the child got to the index finger, the pain was excruciating.  The thumb and the rest of one’s hand may have been fine.  One thought about how this one finger caused one’s whole hand to hurt and compared it to the body of Christ, how the pain of one member causes other members in close proximity in the body to hurt.  Wow, thanks Jesus!

One sang with all one’s heart, waving one’s hands, especially the finger because the pain was gone.  It had been healed and one was free to worship with Jesus.

One confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and spoke in tongues.

One noticed that while praying for the sick, one began to get sleepy.  At 4:12 AM, one began to pray in tongues.  One began to check the time and it may have seemed to be moving unbelievably slower than normal.  One checked the time again and again, only one minute had passed in most cases.

One began to get upset.  One was so tired and asked Jesus for help and wanted to know why was time moving so slowly, it may have become unbearable.

One decided to sing again; this may have brought one up to 4:25 AM.  One began to speak in tongues again; one waited and checked the time again, one minute had passed.  One just could not believe this.

The next time one checked the time, it my have been 4:28 AM.  The last two remaining minutes went by so quickly that one thought it to be weird.  One thought about how one could have missed one’s stop time at 4:30 AM if one had not checked the time.

At 4:30 AM, one logged onto the site to pray for prayer requests.  While praying, one became so sleepy that one could not stand it.  One kept trying to push forward.  One was quickly succumbing to one’s flesh to sleep.  One closed the webpage and left to go lie down.

As one was preparing to lie down, one felt one could not rest because one had not kept one’s word and commitment to this ministry and God.  One returned determined.

One may have logged on, only to get sleepy again.  One may have submitted the prayers that one prayed for and closed the webpage.  One left to go lie down.  One felt guilty, turned around and went back again.  One may have repeated this process at least two more times.  When one’s time was up, one left to go lie down.

While asleep, one had a weird dream that was demonic in nature.  One thought it was because of one’s disobedience in one’s prayer time and this gave Satan a foothold.  Please forgive me Lord Jesus for my disobedience, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

One may believe that today’s prophecy has come true at least once today.  One stayed steadfast and did not do what an individual may have said that one was obligated to do.

The individual questioned one’s decision and began to sow seeds of doubt by saying, “What if you are wrong?”  They may have even thrown in a scare tactic that would cause the faithless to fear.

One may have shared that Jesus is the great physician and that He is able to do more than the doctors.  One may have also shared that the Lord warned that pestilence may come near, but it shall not touch you.

One had already prayed for the situation and believed the report (the evidence) that God had moved on the person of concern’s behalf.  The individual began to attack one in other areas of one’s life that Jesus is in control of.  The individual wanted to know what one plans to do to change one’s circumstances.  One may have said, “When one gets to the end of the tunnel, then one can look back and see what Jesus was doing, right now one may be in the midst.”

Thank you Jesus for your love, help, wisdom and guidance, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

A Place Of Unbridled Liberty!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 27, 2009:

Beloved, I am systematically cutting off the flesh — places where carnality has ruled. Everything that, up to this point, could be shaken has been shaken. But, the result of this shaking will be to release you from unnecessary burdens and bring you to a place of unbridled liberty in the Spirit. Now it is time to strengthen all that is pure and undefiled. Allow My Spirit to freely flow in, around, and through you, says the Lord.

Hebrews 12:26-29 (His) voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.

One may have awakened by the alarm as usual at 3:00 AM.  One may have delayed getting up.

At 3:15 AM, one may have logged onto the computer.  One read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today and then went on to other sites.

Just before 3:30 AM, one went into the bathroom to clean and praise the Lord.  One may have gotten upset at the youngest cat; therefore, one started praising at 3:31 AM.

One quickly got over one’s anger.  One may have petted both cats who were present with one in the bathroom .  One kept praising and cleaning.

One confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and spoke in tongues.

At  4:30 AM, one may have left one’s prayer closet.  One logged onto the website to pray for prayer requests at 4:30 AM.  One may have turned on the portable heater while one prayed.  One may not have gotten sleepy as one has on other occasions from the heat.  Thanks, Lord Jesus for keeping one awake this morning and for answering the one’s prayers and the prayers of others, in Jesus name, amen!

What Is Required Of Me Lord?

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — October 26, 2009:

Have you discerned this My people?  It’s a new season.  Some would say it’s a new day, and it is that.  Some would say it is a new hour, and it is that.  It is a new time and a new season in which I will come to My people in a very distinct way.   I will present Myself to you in such strength and power that you will be overtaken by My Spirit, says the Lord.  As I overtake you, My people, you will begin to understand what I have in mind, and you will begin to understand the process of life in Christ Jesus and of the working out of your salvation by the strength and power of the Spirit of the living God.  For it is to you I come in this season; each one individually, and of course, I will give corporate direction for My people that you may go the same direction; so that they might live in the unity and the power of the most Holy Spirit.  And, you might ask me, “What is required of me Lord?” Come unto Me.  Come present yourself to Me.  Come with a desire to know Me.  For those are the very simple things that will cause you to be elevated and brought up into the highest places of the Kingdom.  You have an inheritance that you must receive in this time.  You have worked and you have labored for long days and hours.  But, now is the season of receiving the rewards for your works and the fulfillment of the prophecies that are over you. Receiving the presence of My glory into your life will be the greatest thing that you have ever taken to yourself.  So, I say, “Come!”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 26, 2009:

I heard in the Spirit the sounding of an A, as in an orchestra tuning their instruments. And, the Lord said, “I am sending a long and distinct sound from heaven to earth so that when you hear this sound that you can come into harmony with Me and with one another. Listen carefully and move with the heavenly sound, for now is the time to begin to move into the things that I have prepared for you.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

One may have awakened by the alarm.  One surely wanted to get more sleep.  One’s grandson may have awakened one consistently throughout the night.  One may have lied there until a quarter after three.  One finally got up and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

One proceeded to the bathroom around 3:28 AM.  One began to tidy up quickly.  At 3:30 AM one started one’s praise session.  One began to confess one’s sins after one finished praising.

One may have been reading the book, “Unmasking the Jezebel Spirit” by prophet John Paul Jackson earlier yesterday and a prominent apostles face came to one’s mind and an individual whom one may know little to none about.  One began to lift the apostle up in prayer.  One may have asked the Lord if this was not Him revealing this to one, then to remove the thought from one’s mind or let it not evoke a desire to do something, to take away the power of the thought.

One spent all of one’s time confessing sins and asking questions of the Lord.  One may have fallen short in something that the Lord may require one to do.  One may have been wondering if one was capable of getting it done and should have tried knowing Jesus would take care of one or if one did the right thing in not doing this thing because of one’s physical short coming (ankle and cast).

Many things are changing and one may not know what or what not to do.  Please Jesus, help!

At 4:30, one logged onto the website to pray for prayer requests.  One turned on the heater but did not get sleepy, praise God!  Thank you Jesus!

The Dark Recesses Of Your Heart!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 23, 2009:

I am revealing all that is hidden in the dark recesses of your heart and circumstances so that you may know precisely the source and reason for the things you are dealing with. I will show you the open doors that have allowed the attacks against you from the devil as well as your own flesh so that there is no question as to what you must fight against and overcome. Do not be afraid to make an honest examination of the things that have been a concern to you, says the Lord.

Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.

One’s alarm may have gone off.  One may have thought to reset the alarm.  One may have fallen asleep and woke up around 3:50 AM.  One was truly late for one’s prayer time.

One did not clean the bathroom as usual.  One may have sung only one song.   One may have confessed one’s sins and prayed for the sick.

One may have asked the Lord to forgive one for being late this morning and for something one had said about an individual to the Lord, while talking to the Lord about the issues in one’s life.  One may be angry about situations that occur in one’s life.  One may believe that the enemy is busy setting one up consistently through other individuals.  The circumstances that one may be put in, may be, so unbelievable.  One’s anger may be kindled often.  Lord Jesus, please help!

At 4:30 AM, one may have logged onto a particular website to pray for prayer requests.  One may have turned on the space heater under one’s computer desk.  The heat may have made one sleepy and one had to fight to stay awake.  One knew that if one turned off the heater, one would get cold again.  One made the choice to fight off the sleep.  One may have prayed for less individuals because of one’s tiredness and desire to please one’s flesh.  Please forgive one, Lord Jesus, in Jesus’ name.

Issues Of Life!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 22, 2009:

The Lord said to set a watch for disappointments and to guard our hearts with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23)  And, I kept hearing Johnny Cash’s song “Walk the Line” over and over again. Here are the song lyrics —

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I’ll admit that I’m a fool for you
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

You’ve got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can’t hide
For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

Song of Solomon 6:3 I am my beloved’s, And my beloved is mine.

One may have awakened to the alarm going off at 3:00 AM.  One may have lain there.  One may have heard the reminder from one’s calendar chirp on one’s computer.

One may have gotten on the computer.  One may have logged onto the site where one may pray for prayer requests.  One may have done this so that one could immediately began to pray for individuals after one’s special time with the Lord.

One read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and hurried to bathroom to prepare it and spend time with the Lord.

One may have started to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  One may have stopped between songs due to something that had been on one’s mind.

Throughout the whole time with the Lord, one may have been struggling with an issue one may have.  One may have confessed one’s sins, which took up most of one’s time.  One may have found oneself consistently in deep thought.  One spoke in tongues during the last four minutes of this special time with Jesus.

At 4:30 AM, one left the bathroom and began to pray for individuals who had requested prayer.  When one submitted the prayer requests, the application timed out because one had logged in before 3:30 AM and it remained idle for over an hour; it may have been a little after 4:30 AM.  These individuals may not have gotten an e-mail stating that one had prayed for them and the requests may have remained outstanding.  Nonetheless, one may believe Jesus answered those prayers.  One logged into the application once again and prayed for individuals.

Lord Jesus, I pray that each prayer was heard and answered according to your perfect will, in Jesus name, I pray, amen.
