It All Begins With The First And Great Commandment And Seeking The Kingdom First

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

It is important as you continue to come to maturity that you maintain a healthy spiritual atmosphere.  I am referring to your own personal environment because you must establish the divine kingdom personally before it can extend beyond you to your family, church and work.  My work through you will always be an overflow of your relationship with Me and your obedience to My word, says the Lord.  It all begins with the first and great commandment and seeking the kingdom first. 

Matthew 22:37-38  Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the first and great commandment.

I Am Going To Make You, My People, Vessels of Honor

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 7/4/11:


I am going to make you, My people, vessels of honor. I am going to establish you as the people who can carry the glory of My presence. When that glory becomes a reality to you the manifestation of My gifts will flow from you like a river. I say, the glory is coming. The only question is whether you will carry it or not. This carrying of My glory will be as a result of your desire, your faith and the positioning of yourself before Me to do what I call you to do. The world will indeed see a chosen generation of priests who reveal the glory of My kingdom. The church is to be the manifestation of My glory, a light, a city set upon a hill, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 7/4/11:


I had a dream in which several of us had joined or were trying to join an already existing organization.  There was one guy who was consistently contentious and combative, and we couldn’t figure out how to deal with him.  Somebody said to me in the process of the dream that we needed to consider carefully whether or not we wanted to go to war because if we go to war we will probably get shot.  Then, I received a note from my father that said, “Make peace-not war.”


Romans 12:18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Hebrews 2 – Don’t neglect salvation.  Thank You Jesus!

I Have Come To Give You A Life Of Joy, Peace And Blessings

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/25/11:

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 3/28/11: 
The Lord says, I have come to give you a life of joy, peace and blessings that are exceedingly above and beyond anything that you could imagine or think. I have come to give you life everlasting. My life alive within your life will manifest as truth that shall set you free. You will uncover the treasures of darkness, and those things hidden in obscure places as only a few have pressed in to. You are about to become a supernatural church; a church to whom the mysteries of God have been given. I encourage you to come up higher. In this elevation of spirit you will know those things which are to come, and you will know those things that are present around you in the realm of the spirit. And, yes, I will even lead you through the valley of vision and into the fullness of that which I have prepared for you. So, come. Cast off the restraints and unshackle yourselves. March forward with hope and expectation. Come with boldness before My throne, says the Lord, and abide in My presence where all things become possible. For these things have been given to you to know and to understand the fullness of the mysteries that have been concealed. I am waiting for you to discover these truths; to find these secrets; to uncover the treasures of darkness and the richness of this life in Christ Jesus, says the Lord God Almighty.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/28/11:

I had a vision of a mine, and I saw one of the mine shafts being dynamited so that it would collapse. This was a safety measure for the miners. And, I heard the LORD say that He is going to cut off certain areas of exploration that have been dangerous to our spiritual stability and growth. He will do this to keep us focused and safe.

Psalms 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.

Get Ready For My Powerful Visitation

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/3/11:

I saw myself sitting in church, just as I have been doing every Sunday for 25 years. The difference is that I have more wisdom now and less zeal than back then. And, I heard the Lord say, “You’ve come a long way, but you still have a ways to go. And, just like the process from then until now, I will also bring you to a higher place from now until the end. Get ready for My powerful visitation. Glory will come to My people personally before it manifests corporately.” My heart resounded with, “Yes, Lord, let it be unto me according to your will.” If I had it to do over again, I would laugh more, love more, and never EVER be afraid. Amen.

Luke 1:38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

One may have assumed that the resounding of one’s alarm may have been for an earlier time.  When one may have decided to check the time, one may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:38 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Acts 8.  Thank You Jesus!

These Are The Days Of The Manifest Presence Of My Faith Coming To Life Within You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — August 23, 2010:

Arise My children into the glory of this hour and the glory of this day. Indeed I have spoken to you that I would come and I would deliver and I will bring the manifest presence of My kingdom to life within you. I have great purposes for you in these days and because these purposes are part of your destiny you must come to that place where you are whole, that place where you are strong, that place where you are in faith and where you are walking in unity and oneness with Me. So, I say, allow your faith to take wings and allow it to soar and to come up. For indeed the door of heaven is open to you; indeed the throne is before you; indeed I have called you and invited you to come with boldness. So I say come now without hesitation, without remorse of things past. Come in faith. Come to receive. Come believing that I am with you and I am for you. Come in faith My beloved for these are the days of the manifest presence of My faith coming to life within you. And it shall be that all of your needs are met and that your healing comes physically, emotionally and spiritually. This is the purpose of these last days, to have a Church that is glorious; a Church that has been perfected; a Church that has been touched, healed and living in the presence of My glory. Come, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 23, 2010:

The enemy has launched an attack against you, God’s people, to bring fear that you’ve come this far and you have missed it somehow — that what you have done or what you thought was really important, all the energy and strength you’ve put into where you are right now was all for nothing. He wants you to believe that you’ve wasted your time and it hasn’t been worth anything. The devil is a liar! I believe God is saying:  I see your every move and I know everything about you and you have not wasted one moment. You have not spilled one drop. Do not let the enemy bring condemnation and lies against you. Fear brings disability. And, the enemy wants to disable you from doing what you have been called to do.

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 at the sound of the 3:00 AM alarm.  One may have gotten up and fed the cat.  One may have looked at the time and thought to check for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been eager to hear from the Lord.  One may have had a challenging weekend.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  At 3:30 AM, one may have begun to praise the Lord with song.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 5.  Thank You Jesus!

Come Higher And Allow My Living Water To Bring Your To The Places That I Have Prepared For You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — August 10, 2010:

I hear the sound of a mighty rushing wind.  It is the Spirit of the Lord that comes now to reactivate the Church and to come upon the Church even as He did in the days of Pentecost, as He did in the days long past.  For many in My Church have grown dull and many of them hear no more, but I am bringing the wind of My Spirit upon them.  The power of it will bring them to life in a new and fresh way, so the living rivers in them will begin to move once again.  For these are the days, My people, of the prophetic word when the eagles must spread their wings and fly. Come higher and allow My living water to bring you to the places that I have prepared for you, says the Lord.

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

Beloved, I am releasing special blessings in this season. You have cast your bread upon the water, and it is returning to you. You have sown seeds that have taken root and are now bearing fruit, for you are about to reap a harvest from the good seed that you have sown, says the Lord. Rejoice.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s alarm going off.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

For I Have Called You To Be Kings And Priests, A Holy Nation

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — July 26, 2010:

Come higher and go deeper.  Come with all haste.  For I will reveal to you the revelation of things that will set you free.  This revelation will define your nature and your character, and it will let you know who you are in Me and who I am in you.  You are a pillar in My glorious church.  Will I not bless My church; will I not cleanse My church; will I not speak to My church? Remember who you are this day, says the Lord, for I have called you to be kings and priests, a holy nation.  To those who answer the call and open the door I will come in and position Myself to speak with you and open the eyes of your vision so you may see, know and understand those things that are coming in this season.  For I say, the time is indeed short.  Awaken yourself as one who has awakened out of a deep sleep.  I know you; you are not hidden from Me.  I know you very well.  In fact, I know you better than you know yourself.  So arise, come into the light.  Arise, come into the glory.  Arise, and allow My anointing to break forth into your spirit for surely it will be the revealer of those things hidden.  Turn from discouragement, condemnation, fear, and those things the enemy is bringing against you.  Turn, I say, and  establish yourself this day on a turning point; a point in which you turn to Me with a full heart, with full assurance, with full faith that I will do My work in you.  I will complete the work I have begun in you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — July 26, 2010:

I saw people changing their position. And, I thought of Joel chapter 2 with everyone marching in formation. And, I heard the Lord say that this repositioning will bring about Kingdom victory.

Joel 2:7 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.

One may have awakened on one’s own this morning.  One may not have heard any alarms and may have overslept.  One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer at 4:50 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Ezekiel 40.  Thank You Jesus!

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 19, 2010:

In a dream I was visiting a church, and I could tell that the pastor was a religious man who did not know God or have the Holy Spirit. I sat on the front row on three different occasions. Each time the pastor would come out, put his notes on the pulpit, and get on his hands and knees to plug in some kind of recording device. But, when he got on his knees to do so he would be frustrated because conviction would come, and he could not preach his message. There was a short, paneled wall that edged the stage where his pulpit stood, and on my third visit, he went through his usual ritual of the other two times, but this time while still on his knees he opened one of the panels on the wall and thrust out a miniature Statue of Liberty and a sculpture of the head of an eagle. And, he cried out, “Give me liberty or give me death.” It was obvious that he was at a crossroad in his spiritual life, and he would either find God and be filled with the Spirit or give up. The statue represents the liberty that comes as a result of moving from religious exercise into the freedom of the Spirit. And, the eagle’s head represents the prophetic gifting and moving of the Holy Spirit to bring forth the proceeding word of God. I believe that the conviction of the Holy Spirit is being poured out in this season on spiritual leaders who need to come out of religious ritual into the Life of the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:17  Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

One may have heard the alarm go off this morning.  This alarm may have been programmed to go off at 3:00 AM, Monday-Friday.  One may have reset another alarm to go of at 3:20 AM.  This would give one enough time to get a little more sleep and to prepare oneself before entering one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.

One may have gone back to sleep.  One may have awakened after a while.  One thought that the alarm should have sounded.  One may have checked the time and discovered that one had overslept.

The alarm that was supposed to be set for 3:00 AM may have been set to 3:20 AM.  So one may have set the second alarm for the same time, therefore it never sounded.

One may have thought to pray from one’s bedroom.  One may have decided against it and thought that one should keep one’s method the same; to enter into one’s prayer closet physically.

One may be committed to the Lord and cannot stop confessing, praying or writing these blogs if one wanted to.  One may know that one has to keep going, no matter what.  So one may have entered one’s prayer closet at 5:04 AM.  Please Lord Jesus, forgive one for being late.

One may have praised the Lord with songs of praise, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Psalms 141.  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, amen.

Freely You Have Received; Freely Give

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — May 4, 2010:

Come My people, and drink of the anointing that I am now bringing forth. Come to that spiritual habitation where the river of life and power come together. Come and drink, for the land is dry and the Church has become a wilderness. Drink of these waters until you are full, and then go forth. Allow Me to bring the flow of My waters from you. The people of the land are dry and thirsty; give them water to drink as I have given you. Freely you have received; freely give. You are entering into a season of transformation. This transformation will come when the rivers clap their hands together, says the Lord.

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

In a vision I saw a coat of arms. There were intricate designs on the shield, but the only two I remember were the fleur de lis and a lion. The lion is the Lion of Judah and the fleur de lis is the Lily of the Valley … both symbolic of Jesus Christ. I thought of the coat of arms as a family thing, or unity in the Body of Christ. And, that we are a warring family ready to go to war.

Joel 2:7-8 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin this morning.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song.  One may have begun to confess one’s sins and realized that one may have been really angry about issues.  One may have asked the Lord to forgive one.

One may have decided to take one’s dog outside.  The dog seemed to be irritable and one thought that the dog had to go.  While outside, one refused to walk the area with the dog.  One may have kept the dog confined to a small area.  The dog may have gone very little if at all.  One may have been angry concerning this.

One may have come back into one’s prayer closet and confessed one’s sins including being angry about one’s dog’s performance.

One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 25.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord Jesus, thank You for answering each prayer requests according to your perfect will, amen.

You Must Forgive Every Offense From Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 19, 2010:

Before you can move one inch on the path of destiny, you must forgive every offense from your heart. Remember and practice My word, “And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.” I will give unique opportunities to each of you, My people, to be established in these sayings of Mine, for I will have a unified Body–a Church that is blameless and without spot or blemish. Surrender to the work of My Spirit in the deepest recesses of your heart. Your spiritual life depends on it, says the Lord.

Matthew 18:34-35 “And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses.”

One may have awakened and did some writing after 1:00 AM this morning. As the time neared 3:00 AM, one quickly finished one’s writings and attempted to go back to sleep before one’s special time with Jesus at 3:30 AM.

One may have thought, “Check your phone, it might be dead and if so you may oversleep.”  One answered the thought with a thought, “I don’t even know where my cell phone is.” One dismissed the thought.  One may have been too tired to get up and besides one was wrapped perfectly in one’s blankets.

One may have been awakened by noise coming from the kitchen area.  One may have asked the individual the time.  It may have been 4:12 AM.  One may have overslept. Upon getting up, one may have looked for one’s phone.  One may have found it on the computer desk and it may have been totally dead.  Wow!  Hindsight being 20/20, one may believe the Holy Spirit may have been warning one.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  One headed to one’s prayer closet.  One may have entered a little before 4:30 AM.

One may have started out by apologizing to the Lord for oversleeping and asking for His forgiveness.  One began to sing songs of praise to the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Ezra 8.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have been really encouraged about praying for those who may need prayer.  One may know that the Lord answers these prayers.

Recently, one may have been led to review the praise reports from this particular website.  One may have waited days before finally giving into this gentle nudging.

While viewing the praise reports, one may have read a testimony that mirrored a specific prayer that one prayed.  What one asked for in this prayer may have been for the Lord to give the individual a new heart.

The praise report stated that the doctors said the individual had received a new heart, a heart of a sixteen year old and the new heart should last for another twenty years; surgery was no longer needed.

The individual giving the praise report thanked the prayer warriors for their prayers.  Hallelujah!  One may believe that the Lord wanted one to know that the prayer had been answered.  Thank you Jesus!

Lord one may thank you for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will and for being so awesome.  One may give you all the glory, honor and praise in the highest heaven (3rd heaven), in Jesus’ name, amen.
