Do You Not Know, My People, That I Am Your Friend?

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — November 30, 2009:

Do you not know, My people, that I am your friend?  And because I am your friend I watch over you, I guide you, I speak with you, I heal you, and deliver you.  So realize this day that I am not a hard task master.  I am simply perfecting those things concerning you.  Do not allow yourself to forget that I am your friend.  I know you. I know your name.  I know the circumstances in your life, and I know them well.  Never come to the conclusion that I am not watching over you.  Never come to the conclusion that I have walked away from you.  For I have professed in MY word that I would never leave you or forsake you.   I will be with you until the very end of the age.  Your circumstances and the persecutions that come may tell you otherwise, but indeed I am your friend.  So get this concept in your heart and in your mind that I wish to dwell with you in friendship.  I know that you think of Me as a Savior, as a King and the King of Kings.  I know you think of Me as your healer, as your deliverer and provider, but today I want you to think of Me as your friend.  For friendship is so much more special than simply receiving the things that the Father would give to you.  Walk with Me in this fellowship, for I assure you that if you do, joy unspeakable will fill your heart and the peace that passes all understanding will be yours to dwell in, says the Lord.

My eyes are searching the whole earth for a people willing to stand firmly in the truth of My Word without compromise. I’m looking for those who have a heart after My own heart, says the Lord. And, I will raise up for Myself a generation who will answer the call and can be trusted to establish My Kingdom in truth and righteousness.

Luke 18:8b Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?

One may have awakened by one’s alarm this morning and begun to clean the bathroom.  Around 3:20 AM, one may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been most pleased and thought it was a most awesome message.  Thank you Jesus.

One proceeded back to one’s prayer closet and finished cleaning.  One started at with songs of praise to the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins and talked to the Lord about some things that have been on one’s mind.

One prayed for the sick and then asked the Lord to lead one to a passage in the Bible.  One may have been led to Daniel 12.

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

See Things In The Light Of Revelation!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Beloved, this is a time of second chances. You will recognize this path because you’ve been this way before. However, it will be of great benefit to you if you will take the time and put forth the effort to pay attention to details. Discern My work as opposed to the work of flesh or the work of the enemy so that you can respond differently than you have in the past. There are some life lessons here that will serve you well if you will see things in the light of revelation and discern the difference between reacting in the flesh or responding in the Spirit, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

One may have awakened by the sound of the alarm this morning.  One may have cleaned the bathroom.  One read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

One may have begun one’s praise at 3:30 AM.  One sung songs of praised to the Lord, confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  One may have had just a minute before one had to leave one’s prayer closet.  One opened the bible and read the verse Isaiah 19:11.

One may have left one’s prayer closet, logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Jesus.

I’m Releasing All Who Really Want Breakthrough!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

I am liberating those of you, My people, who have a desire to be free. I’m releasing all who really want breakthrough, but remember that it is a narrow and righteous path and not the broad way of the world. Therefore, I will cause you to look and consider carefully your circumstances and encounters in this season. It is vital that you yield to correction when it comes, for it will produce the peaceable fruit of righteousness, says the Lord.

Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

One may have awakened around 2 AM and worked on several assignments.  At 3:00 AM, one began to clean the bathroom while attempting to confess one’s sins.  When the bathroom was clean, one came out, logged onto one’s computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

At 3:30 AM, one began to praise the Lord in one’s prayer closet with song.  One finished confessing one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.

One prayed with all one’s heart for the Lord to reveal a passage from the Bible to one, of His choosing, that revealed His heart and that would encourage one.

One may have opened the Bible and one’s eyes fell on Malachi 2.  One may not ever remember Levi being described in the Bible this way.  “Wow!”

One thought to speak in tongues the remainder of time.  While speaking in tongues, one decided to search the Bible for another passage.  One may have opened it with eyes closed and let one’s finger run down the page and stop.

The Bible fell to the floor.  One took that as a sign to continue to speak in tongues and not read any more passages of scripture.

At 4:30 AM, one left one’s prayer closet.  One logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Jesus!

Complete And Divine Order!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 25, 2009:

We have been through a period of the past seven months where the Lord has brought about astounding changes in our lives. He has done a work of bringing us into a complete and divine order, which seemed at the time to be really, really difficult because we didn’t fully understand what He was doing. He had to bring destruction in ways that would cause us to let go of the things that would hinder His plans and purposes for us. I’m not absolutely sure, but it looks like we are at the end of this re-ordering process. I believe this was confirmed as I experienced an unnatural fatigue as though I had completed a long and exhausting journey. Yet, when I awoke, I was completely refreshed and awake; not just awake from a night’s sleep, but awake and alert from a dark and deep spiritual sleep. And, I believe that we have entered a new day of heightened discernment and clarity together with a sense of release and purpose that will help us yield more completely and move unhindered in the flow of the Holy Spirit.

2 Timothy 1:14 That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.

One may have awakened to the alarm at 3:00 AM.  One got up and began to prepare for one’s time with the Lord.  One’s mind may have been racing.  Many thoughts may have consumed one all at once.

One may have had a hard time trying to confess one’s sins.  One may have found oneself wandering off of what one was doing (confessing) and thinking about issues in one’s life.  One may have attempted to get back on track.  One may have asked the Lord for help.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.

One may have started one’s special time with praise to the Lord, with song.  One may have thought about issues and began to talk to the Lord.  One apologized to the Lord again for getting off track and continued on with one’s praise (singing) to the Lord.  One confessed one’s sins; which took up most of one’s time.  One thanked the Lord, for He has truly been good to one.  One prayed for the sick.

One left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have felt good this morning and very hopeful while praying for the prayer requests.

Lord, one may pray that your perfect will be done for each individual who submitted a prayer request, in Jesus’ name.  Thank you Jesus!

Resist This Attack And Trust Me, Says The Lord!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 24, 2009:

I have already led you in the way of broad-sweeping changes both spiritually and in the natural realm that are necessary to prepare you for the next leg of your journey. But now, I will show you places where small changes will bring greater definition and clarity — things that need to be tweaked. You are in a time of fine-tuning, and I will lead you and give you wisdom in this. Don’t be afraid that you will overlook something or miss out on My plans and purposes. And, I tell you the truth, the enemy has released an assignment of torment against My people of self-doubt and condemnation to keep you from moving forward with confidence and boldness. Resist this attack and trust Me, says the Lord.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

One may have awakened around 1 AM this morning.  One may have cleaned both bathrooms, wrote in one’s log of recent activities and then laid back down to get a little more sleep before one’s special time with Jesus.

The alarm may have gone off at 3:00 AM.  One may have reset it for 3:15AM.  When the alarm went off one may have headed to the computer to check the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

One’s keyboard batteries were low so one may have logged onto one’s computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  It may have been another awesome message from the Lord.

One may have attempted to change the batteries before one went into one’s prayer closet.  One may have put the dying batteries on the charger.  One may have discovered that one of the charged batteries was missing.   One thought to check a video game controller but decided against it; one did not want to wake those who were sleeping.  One had to take a battery from the mouse to use for the keyboard when necessary.

One grabbed one’s Bible and notebook and went to one’s prayer closet.  One may have started praising with song.  One confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and then one asked the Lord to lead one to a passage of scripture.  The Lord led one to 1 Samuel 16.  One asked again and the Lord led one to Isaiah 54.

One may have spoke in tongues the remainder of the time.  One may have felt very tired and had to stand and walk around in order to stay awake.  The time may have gone slower than one desired.

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One had to fight through one’s sleepiness.  Lord I pray that you heard and answered each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus name.

Have You Heard My Exhortation?

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — November 23, 2009:

The Lord says to you today, have you heard My Word? Have you heard My exhortation? Rise up My people. Gather yourselves up and dig for the waters of this season. Dig for the anointing that you have lost. Dig new wells of great and strong anointing, for indeed the anointing will bring the glory and the presence of My kingdom upon your life. Dig and drink. Sing to the well. Dig and drink. Dig and do not stop. Are you thirsty? Then dig. Are you thirsty? Then take a drink. For you will find that there is a river of life that flows through My kingdom where trees are planted. Therein lies the mystery and the secret of the promise of My living water. So I say today let all dryness be gone. You have walked through the valley of the shadow of death; you have walked through the wilderness; you have walked through the dry places, but now you are coming to the place of living water where springs bubble up out of the depth of My kingdom. Therefore, I say unto you, dig and drink. As you drink, life will again enter in to your temple. As you drink, wellness will again come. As you drink the powers of darkness will leave. As you drink the glory of the kingdom will manifest in you, and you will become strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. So, I say, drink. It is the season for the digging of the wells in the pattern and the type of those that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob dug. Use your faith as a shovel and dig and drink, says the Lord.

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

Beloved, refuse to allow the voice of the enemy to bring discouragement and keep you from fulfilling your destiny in Me, says the Lord. I have called and chosen you to manifest My kingdom in this time and in this generation. You live in a critical age where darkness abounds, but My grace and truth abound even more. I will empower you to do the impossible, because with Me all things are possible. Only believe!

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

One may have awakened to the sound of the alarm going off at 3:00 AM.   One went into a different bathroom. One began to confess one’s sins.  After one finished, one may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have thought that the messages were powerful.

One may have Grabbed one’s Bible, book and chair and went back into one’s chosen place to worship this morning.

One may have sung songs of praise, prayed for the sick and spoke in tongues.  One may have asked the Lord to lead one to passages of scripture.  One may have been led to a passage in Isaiah, one may not remember where.  One may have been led to Zephaniah 1 and Luke 8:48.

One just sat there afterwards waiting for one’s time to be over.  One may have felt discouraged.  One may have many reasons to be overjoyed, yet one may have been worrying about situations and circumstances.  One may have prayed.  Thank you Jesus, one may believe it’s already answered, in Jesus’ name.

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website and prayed for outstanding prayer requests.

Actualize Your Kingdom Potential!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 20, 2009:

The way is clear, and the door is open for you to proceed. Go forth with confidence and assurance, for I am with you, says the Lord. It is time for you to possess all that has been prepared for you. Do not be afraid or doubt that you have been set aside for My purposes at this time and for this season. If you will yield to the moving of My Spirit, I will cause you to actualize your kingdom potential.

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

One may have awakened by the alarm at 3:30 AM.  One may have gotten up to begin one’s routine.

One may have prepared oneself and the bathroom for one’s time with the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins while cleaning.

After one finished cleaning, one may have come out of one’s prayer closet and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin. One may have been pleased at the message and read it again.  One proceeded to the bathroom.

One may have spent most of one’s time, confessing and talking to the Lord.  One prayed for the sick.  Then one may have prayed for the Lord to lead one to a passage in the Bible of His choosing.

One may have opened the Bible to Psalms 142.  One read it.  Then one’s eyes fell on Psalms 141.  One may have read it as well.   One left one’s prayer closet at 4:30 AM.

One logged on to the website to pray for prayer requests.  The setup may have been different and one was lead through what and who to pray for.

One may have finished up and logged off.  One may have been pleased.

One may have been blessed today:

  • A personal bill may have been paid for one today.
  • One’s doctors bills may have been paid today by an organization, one may have a zero balance.
  • One’s book “Beyond Fearless” by Ericka D. Jackson came today.
  • A major hindrance may have been moved today in one’s daughter’s life.

Thank you Jesus for blessing one so!

Let Me Move You In This Conclusive Flow!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 19, 2009:

I am bringing a conclusion to various aspects of your circumstances, but be aware that getting to the final result will continue for a time to be a process. There are still things that need to be dealt with before the final summation. Move through this process with faith and confidence that I am doing a good work and the results will be well pleasing to you and to Me, says the Lord. Let Me move you in this conclusive flow.

Colossians 1:9-12 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

The alarm went off at 3:00 AM and one sprung into action immediately.  One may have gone to the bathroom to prepare it while confessing one’s sins also.

When one finished one may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  The message for today may have been right on time for one.  Thank you Jesus!

God may speak to one many ways:

  • The Spirit of Prophecy is one way.
  • He may flash something He wants one to do or know in one’s mind.
  • He may zoom in on something like you would on a zoom with your camera.
  • He may let one’s eyes fall on what He wants one to know or see, it could be a word or phrase.
  • He may drop something in one’s spirit and one may know.
  • Sometimes, one may hear a still small voice.
  • He may speak through people.
  • He may send someone to give one a direct message.

However God chooses to speak, one may never know.  One may walk around always sensitive to things that may go on around one.

One may not be in control or set the conditions when the Lord shows up.  One may have learned, especially through these last few encounters in one’s prayer time; that one may need to do an attitude check.  Forgive me Lord for trying to control the outcome or for believing that certain elements including a chair could usher in your presence, in Jesus’ name.

One will continue to press into Jesus during one’s prayer time.  One may want to experience a higher level of intimacy with Jesus.  One may want to continue to grow in one’s walk with the Lord.

After reading the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin, one may have come back into one’s prayer closet.  One began to praise the Lord with song.  One may have prayed for the sick.

One may have asked the Lord to lead one to the passage He desired for one to see.  The Lord may have led one to 1 Samuel 2:22.  One may have read to the end of the chapter, circling around back to where one started.

One may have heard a door opening and closing so one knew someone was awake and moving around.  One decided not to try to press into Jesus at this time.

One may have begun to speak in tongues.  After a while, one may have tried to press into Jesus but the timing may have been off.  One opened the Bible again and one may have been led to Isaiah 13.  Halfway through the chapter, the alarm may have begun to beep; it may have been 4:30 AM, time for one to leave.  One read up to Isaiah 13:19 and quickly left one’s prayer closet.

One may have logged onto the website and prayed for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have had a desire recently to check the praise reports.  When one checked, one was brought to tears at how the Lord had moved in the lives of those who had left prayer requests in faith.  Thank you Jesus, that blessed one so.

One may have read the remaining verses in Isaiah 13 and then went off to sleep.

Call Forth A Clearing Of The Airways!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 18, 2009:

The enemy has launched an attack against you, My people, to cause confusion, misunderstandings, miscommunication and hindrances. You must rise up in the spirit realm and shut the door on this attack and call forth a clearing of the air ways. And, I will give you clarity and open the door and clear the way for you to proceed unhindered, says the Lord. Be diligent to wage a good warfare. Victory is assured.

1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare.

One may have awakened by the alarm at 3:00 AM.  One may have gotten up right away and started cleaning the bathroom and confessing one’s sins.  One may have changed some things around, like getting up earlier so that one may have more time with the Lord.

After cleaning and confessing one’s sins, one came out of the bathroom and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One gathered one’s Bible, notebook and computer chair and headed for the bathroom.

Upon returning, one set the alarm for 4:30 AM.  One made a conscious effort to pray for the clearing of the airways.  One began to praise the Lord with Song.  One prayed for the sick and then one asked the Lord to lead one to the scripture that He wanted one to read.

One may have opened one’s Bible and one’s eyes fell on Ruth 4:1.  One started reading the chapter.  One asked the Lord while reading if He wanted one to read the whole chapter.  One may have felt compelled to read to the end of Chapter 4.

One then got quiet and began to press into Jesus.  One may have thought many thoughts and fidgeted during the entire time.

While one may have been sitting there a thought came to one’s mind that the Lord was not going to show up.  One thought, ”What if He does, what are you going to do?”  One thought, “To be humble and just accept whatever the Lord gives one.”  One wondered how much time one had left as well.

The alarm may have gone off and it was time for one to leave.  One sat there for a moment with disbelief and disappointment at how the time spent turned out.

One left the bathroom.  One may have been upset.  One thought about how one made an effort to get up earlier even though one had not felt like it.  One thought to give up, throw in the towel.

The thoughts kept coming quicker than one could think.  Then one had an epiphany, “This is a “Lying Spirit!”  One began to literally laugh at all the accusations one may have heard in one’s head.

One may have dismissed all the negative thoughts.  One logged onto the website to pray for prayer requests.  When one finished, one laid down to go to sleep.  The disappointment, anger and accusations were not there.

One may look forward to trying again tomorrow morning.  Thank you Jesus, for everything.

I Call You Forth Into Healing, Restoration and Renewal!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 17, 2009:

Beloved, because of your faithful prayers and strong stand against the wiles of the devil, the pall of oppression is lifting. The light of righteousness is piercing the thick gloom of darkness. I call you forth into healing, restoration, and renewal. It is time for you to emerge from the caves and shadows where you have hidden yourselves, and come into the light of a new day, says the Lord.

Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

One may have awakened at 3:00 am to the sound of the alarm.  One turned it off and re-set it for 3:20 AM.

At the sound of the second alarm, one got up and one logged onto one’s  computer to check for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One read it twice, grabbed some items and headed off to one’s prayer closet.  One may have decided yesterday, to start bringing in one’s computer chair, daily logbook with a pen, and Bible.  The chair may provide much more comfort than the toilet seat lid cover.  One may wonder if the chair has been helpful in getting into the Lord’s presence.  One had not had this type of success until yesterday.  “Lord Jesus, what is the determining factor, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen?”

One may have begun to  clean a few minutes before one’s start time.  At 3:30 AM, one began to sing.  After praising the Lord with song, one confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  This may have taken one to around 4:15 AM.

One may have grabbed one’s Bible and prayed for the Lord to lead one to the scripture that He wanted one to see.  One may have opened the Bible up to Psalms 91 and been pleased with this passage.  Even if the passage is not a passage one would have chosen for oneself, one has to trust that Jesus is trying to reveal something to one, which may include one’s attitude.

After reading the passage, one may have begun to press into Jesus to get into His presence.  One may have had many thoughts.  One thought about how much time did one have left.  There was no itches that needed to be scratched which may have been unusual, just rambling thoughts.

The thoughts ceased suddenly and one knew one was there.  All of a sudden the alarm began to beep.  One thought, “Oh No!”  One did not want to wait until tomorrow to try again.  One began to pray to the Lord to allow one to stay and to pray for the outstanding prayer requests later.

So one stayed, thinking that because one had asked, the request had been granted by the Lord.  One closed one’s eyes again.  One heard sounds coming from the next room.  Not long after that one heard someone fidgeting with the washer and dryer.  Then came a knock at the door, the individual wanted the toothpaste.  One’s dog came rushing in, he needed to go outside and made it clear to one that he needed to go right then!

One gave up.  One let the dog out for a few minutes.  One then logged onto one’s computer and onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

One may believe that one’s worship time may increase from 3:00 AM – 4:30 AM and may include weekends.  One may have thought this recently, but was reluctant to change.  One may be so tired sometimes.  Lord Jesus please give one strength, in Jesus’ name.
