Many Of You, My People, Have Felt Dazed, Stunned, As If In A Stupor

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 12, 2010:

Many of you, My people, have felt dazed, stunned, as if in a stupor. This has been a very effective weapon that the enemy has used against you to keep you from being effective. But, I tell you honestly that this fog is going to lift, and the oppression shall cease. You will suddenly have clarity of mind and purpose like coming out of a deep, dark sleep into the bright light of 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 overslept again this morning.  This may be the third time this week.  One may be tired physically.  One may have a lot going on in one’s life.  One may have a very important assignment that one may need to get done soon.

One may not have remembered that one had not posted yesterday’s blog until one may have been reading the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  Please forgive one Lord, Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 4:10 AM.  One may have begun to praise the Lord, confessed one’s sins and the alarm on one’s phone may have gone off at 4:20 AM.  Unbeknownst to one, one may believe that one somehow set the alarm for that time earlier this morning.

One may have finished confessing one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed to the Lord for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Esther 9.  Thank you Jesus.

At 5:10 AM, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Prepare To Emerge From Darkness and Uncertainty Into The Light Of My Presence And Glory

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 11, 2010:

Prepare to emerge from darkness and uncertainty into the light of My presence and glory. Even though there have been difficulties along the way, you will find yourself unexpectedly strengthened. And, those times when you felt like such a victim of situations, circumstances, and people will melt away and become a vague memory. The breakthrough that you are about to experience will far outweigh the trouble that it took to get to this point, says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

One may have awakened this morning, logged onto one’s computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have begun to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM and entered one’s prayer closet shortly thereafter.  After praising the Lord with song one may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed a brief prayer for the sick and asked the Lord for the scripture for today.  One may have been led to Daniel 2.  Thank you Jesus.

Around 4:30 AM, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord, thank you for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Develop The Habit Of Walking In The Spirit So That Your Flesh Cannot Have Free Rein

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 10, 2010:

Stop and discern My heart in every situation and circumstance. Make sure that everything that you say or do is in complete accord with My purposes. Develop the habit of walking in the Spirit so that your flesh cannot have free rein. You will be amazed at how easy it really is once you make the decision to not just react to life but to respond to My Spirit in every instance. This is a new day and requires a new approach, says the Lord.

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

One’s alarm may have gone off at 3:00 AM.  One may have fallen back asleep.  One may have awakened late for one’s special time with Jesus.  One may have hurriedly read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 4:15 AM.  One may have begun by praising the Lord with song.  One may have begun to confess one’s sins only to be interrupted.  One may have had to leave one’s prayer closet and finish praying at one’s computer desk.

Individuals may have interrupted one time and time again.  One may have got through one’s confessions eventually.  One may have prayed for outstanding prayer requests on the website sometime during the late morning.  Thank you Jesus for answering the prayer request of each individual according to your will.

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture this afternoon.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 33.  Thank you Jesus.  One’s day may have been most unusual because one may have chose to let one’s flesh lead.  Had one gotten up at the appropriate time, one’s time with Jesus may have been uninterrupted and one’s prayer time may have flowed as usual.  Lord, please forgive one for one’s sins, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

Stay Calm!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 9, 2010:

Beloved, you have not been this way before, and I am bringing you along in a leisurely fashion so you don’t miss anything along the way. There is much for you to learn and grow from in these days, things that will reveal your heart with deeper and more complete understanding. This is no time to clamor in fear or frantically try to maintain status quo, but it is a time when you can quietly receive wisdom, guidance and resolution that will serve you immeasurably in the days ahead, says the Lord. Stay calm.

Proverbs 17:27 He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.

One may have awakened on one’s own this morning.  One may have checked the time.  It may have been after 5:00 AM.  One may have overslept for one’s prayer time with Jesus.  One may not have heard the alarms or they may not have gone off, one may not be sure.

One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy bulletin and entered one’s prayer closet at 5:25 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  The Lord may have led one to Luke 4.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests this evening.  Lord, thank you for hearing and answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

For Your Body Is The Temple Of The Holy Spirit And Unbelief Should Not Be Found In Your House

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — February 8, 2010:

It is important in this season, My children, that you believe; that you come to a place of faith in My word and in My promises, and that you put all unbelief out.  For your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and unbelief should not be found in your house.  Your house belongs to Me, and I bring the power of faith to bear in your life.  Therefore, I say again, defeat all unbelief.  Make it your life’s work in this season that you will not allow it to question My word or to overshadow and steal My promises.  I say believe, for all things are possible to the one who believes.  All things may be received by the one who believes.  Be that one in this season; one with Me.   And, may it be said in your heart that I no longer live by the measurement of my own faith, but I now live by the faith of the Son of God, who has given Himself for me.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 8, 2010:

Now is the time when you can realize breakthrough and move forward in My purposes, for I am causing you to deal with your own heart and rise above the flesh into the Spirit where liberty abounds. Release yourself from everything — every thought, every emotion and every decision that has been in opposition to My name, says the Lord. Then, you will find the bondages broken and the chains of restriction removed so that you can flee from the prison of your own making.

Psalms 107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their chains in pieces.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged.  There may be things going on in one’s life that may require one to demonstrate extreme faith.  For only Jesus may be one’s present help.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet and praised the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Ezra 3.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Freedom Awaits!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 5, 2010:

Watch as I bring answers to long-awaited questions and conclusions to unresolved problems. I am offering opportunities to put things right so that you can move forward unhindered. You cannot receive the fullness of My blessings and provision without resolution of old issues, says the Lord. And, I have opened the door and made a way for you to deal with those things that have hampered your progress and kept you bound. Freedom awaits!

Matthew 18:15-17 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that _by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.”

One may have got up after the second alarm.  It may have been around 3:25 AM.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have asked the Lord to reveal to one any issues one may have that need to be resolved.  One may not have been able to think of any.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 19.  Thank you Jesus.

At 4:30 AM, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Issues may have come up today and one may have thought, “Why?”  One may have remembered that one asked the Lord to reveal where one may have issues that need to be resolved.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have gone to the eye doctor today.  One may have had a strong desire to get one’s eyes checked.  One may have asked one’s sister for their assistance in order to keep one’s appointment.  One may have shared with one’s sister that one had to go and could not reschedule.

Years ago one may have had one’s eyes checked and may have been told by the optician to have one’s eye’s checked at least every two years.  The individual may have said that one may be a candidate for glaucoma.  They may have given one the details on what they may have seen and the reason for concern.

The individual at the doctor’s office may have used an instrument to check one’s eyes for glaucoma.  Upon checking one’s right eye, the individual may have said, “Wait a minute, that can’t be right.”  They may have checked the other eye and said, “What’s wrong with this thing?”  They may have shared the results after several attempts to get accurate readings.  One’s levels may have been well above the normal range, indicating glaucoma.  One may have shared that a relative may have glaucoma.

The doctor came in and said that they would do more tests with a different instrument.  One may have shared that one may know of only one relative that may have glaucoma.  The doctor may have said, ”It has to start somewhere.”  One could not help but think of generational curses.  One may have prayed to the Lord silently, one may have asked Him to please heal one right now in Jesus’ name, amen.

The doctor may have conducted all of the necessary tests.  The doctor may have told one that one’s test results were normal.  They may have said that something was a little large but they were not concerned about it.  The doctor may have scheduled one for a visit in three months to do a routine follow up and to rule out glaucoma.

Thank you Jesus!  One may believe You answered that prayer right then and there and healed one with your healing power.  Lord you are so awesome!  One may be truly grateful.  Thank you Jesus!

Maintain Eternal Perspective

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 4, 2010:

Beloved, set a watch for opposition and division. Regardless of where it pops up or the reasons behind it or the justifications for it, it is still the work of the enemy. You can’t fix anything or work through anything in the flesh or by human reason. This must be done in the realm of the spirit by the Holy Spirit and maintaining godly focus. Remind yourself of My purposes, My work, and My promises, says the Lord. Maintain eternal perspective, which is to look beyond what is immediate and temporary to that which is eternal.

Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and may have received the message and it’s warning from the Lord.  One may have purposed in one’s heart to try to remember the Lord’s warning throughout the day.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time and began to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  One may have prayed to the Lord for His help.  Things may be most difficult in one’s life and one may not have seen the outcome coming on the horizon.

Later today some things may have happened that may have increased one’s faith and hope concerning events that may take place in the near future.  One must demonstrate tremendous faith at this point and trust that Jesus is busy doing and preparing one’s way.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  The Lord may have led one to Ezekiel 42.  One may have pondered in one’s heart, the Lord’s choice of scripture.  Thank you Jesus for the scripture for today.

One may have left one’s prayer closet a little after 4:30 AM.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord Jesus, thank you for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Just Rest!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 3, 2010:

Come into My presence and be still. Release every burden and every disturbing thought and emotion, and just rest. For, certainly as you are quiet before Me, I will comfort you, fill you to overflowing with My Spirit, and release healing and restoration into your entire being. No more worry or striving or clamoring. Just rest. I am the God who heals you and delivers you from calamity and destruction, says the Lord.

Psalm 91:1-11 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.

One may have awakened a little after midnight.  One may have done some writing.  One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin around 3:15 AM.  Thank you Jesus!

One may be going through a period where one may not know exactly how things will take place in the near future.  One may have to put one’s faith and total trust in the Lord.  One may not be in control.  This may be a most challenging time in one’s life.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time.  One may have sung praises to the Lord.  One may have been discouraged by an event that may have taken place the previous day.  One may have talked to the Lord until one may have felt better.  One may have prayed for help, leading and guidance.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 53.  Thank you Jesus!

At 4:30 AM, one may have left one’s prayer closet.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your will, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 1, 2010:

You are on the threshold of spiritual breakthrough, and the enemy is frantically doing all he can to keep this from happening. You are a threat to his invasion. Watch closely for his intrusion into your life through circumstances, interaction with others, and even your own thoughts and emotions. Give him no ground whatsoever. Resist him at every turn, and he will flee, says the Lord. That is a promise!

James 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Put Your Trust In Me

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — February 1, 2010:

My desire is to make you a well watered garden; a habitation of My presence; a place of fruitfulness; a place where the waters freely flow and the trees of life drink from those streams.  May it be that new wells of living water spring up in your life and bring forth the presence of My authority in these days.  May those waters bring you in to a place of blessing, a place where you can come and abide with Me; a place of refreshing and a place of renewal.  For indeed these are My works in these days to restore you and to bring you forth in victory over all the power of the enemy, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 1, 2010:

The last round of attacks from the devil have left many of you fractured and disoriented. But you, My people, must begin to look up again. Put your hope and faith in Me, says the Lord. When you begin to seek My face in earnest, I will release a powerful move of My Spirit to bring healing and restoration to you both individually and corporately. Put your trust in Me.

Jeremiah 39:18 “For I will surely deliver you, and you shall not fall by the sword; but your life shall be as a prize to you, because you have put your trust in Me,” says the LORD.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  Thanks for encouraging one Lord Jesus.  One may have entered one’s prayer closet a few minutes early.
