The Battle Is Designed For Victory, Not For Your Defeat

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

The greater the glory that is revealed in you, the greater the battle will become. The battle is designed for your victory, not for your defeat. The battle and the victory are designed to give you a testimony of the power of Christ. So, come and turn back the battle at the gate; do not run from the fight, but rather run to the fight. I declare that your enemies will be defeated, says the Lord. Behold My power as I demonstrate it to you and through you in these days.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be alert to a weapon formed against you, My people. It is the temptation to give in to dissipation, which is to spend too much time and resources on physical pleasures. This is a subtle attack formed to separate you from My presence and to divert your attention to worldly things and issues of life. Take the time to deliberately redirect your thoughts and energy to spiritual things–things that matter, says the Lord.

1 Peter 4:3-6 For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles-when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you. They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

Stand Strong In Truth And In The Knowledge Of My Mercy, Favor, And Grace Towards You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

The accuser of the brethren has risen up to blame you, My people, says the Lord. Set a watch for guilt, shame, and condemnation. Refuse to allow the enemy’s access. Stand strong in truth and in the knowledge of My mercy, favor and grace towards you. This attack is designed to derail and distract you from spiritual concentration. Be strong and keep your focus.

Psalms 86:5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.

I Reveal Myself As The Master Over My House

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

I reveal Myself as the Master over My house. Even though you have not understood nor known My presence in the way you would like to know it, I have indeed watched over you and been with you. I have even revealed Myself through the circumstances of your life. Those circumstances are designed to cause you to become the kings of this earth that bring glory in to My house. So, I say, renew yourself in spirit. Reach out with faith and allow Me to touch you. I am with you, never to leave you. I am always with you in your time of need. I am always for you. I know you, and My desire is that you know Me in a greater way. Open your spiritual ears and eyes; listen and watch for I am coming in unexpected ways in these days with unusual signs and miracles that will show you that indeed I have not forgotten about you. For, My word declares that I will be with you always, even to the very end of this age, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

You have come to this point in your walk with Me many times, but have stopped short of the fullness of what I have prepared for you. This is very much like crossing the river into the promised land. The land has already been given to you, but you must take it. Will it take effort? Yes. Will it be a fight to overcome the enemy? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes. Put aside your fears and trepidation, and trust Me that I will strengthen you for the journey and be with you in the fight, says the Lord.

Deuteronomy 27:3 … when you have crossed over, that you may enter the land which the LORD your God is giving you, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey,’ just as the LORD God of your fathers promised you.

Don’t Let The Devil Gain Any Ground In Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns 12/22/11:

The enemy has risen up with a vengeance to destroy your faith and bring you down to the depths of despair. Don’t let the devil gain any ground in your heart. He will take advantage of your self-focus and will take you down in condemnation. You are not a victim of his schemes; you are designed and empowered to be victorious over all the work of evil against you. Rise up in your most holy faith, and stand your ground against these attacks by maintaining your position in My Spirit, says the Lord. Do not be afraid.

Colossians 2:13-15 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:42 AM.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.  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 Luke 12 – Jesus Warns About Hypocrisy.  Thank You Jesus!

Be Diligent To Walk In The Spirit, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns – 11/28/11:

I am with you and I am for you. I have designed a path before you that will lead you forth into the redemptive revelation of My present purposes. And those purposes, My people, will unveil your destiny. In this season you will begin to understand Me in a greater way. I will share with you the hidden manna–the manna that has been set aside for this season and for this time. As you eat the manna of the revelation of who I am it will become your present treasure in these days, says the Lord.

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

Recognize that your experiences will be marked by great expectations and great resistance. The great expectations come from your faith to receive the promises I have made to you. The great resistance is a result of more pressure from the enemy. The choices you make at this time to both believe and to fight will determine the nature of your spiritual environment. Be diligent to walk 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.

Be Awake And Aware

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/16/11:

Refuse to let your guard down. The enemy is doing what he can to bring plausible temptation that will open the door for him to take advantage of you. If the devil can get the upper hand you will soon be embroiled in an all-out spiritual battle designed to overwhelm you. Now is the time to stand your ground as you set a watch and discern his subtle tactics, says the Lord. Be awake and aware!

2 Corinthians 10:5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Remember That I Have Given You Authority And Power To Overcome

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/21/11:

Stir yourself up in your most holy faith. Push back the darkness that tries to encroach and violate your boundaries and the rights of your covenant with Me, says the Lord. Refuse the attacks of the enemy, which are designed to bring you down in oppression and reproach. Let your light shine so that the darkness is dispelled and the devil has no place in you. Remember that I have given you authority and power to overcome.

Jude 20-21: But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

I Am the King Of Glory

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 12/13/2010:

Have you not read that I am the Lord of Glory?  I am the King of Glory!  My glory I share with no other because it originates with Me, but that glory that I am speaking of I will bring upon you.  If you will walk with Me in the place of My glory; the path that is before you, which is already been set ablaze for your journey.  My call to you today is come and walk in the glory.  Come and abide in the glory for all things are manifest in My glory.  Every promise is received in My glory.  Again, I say, come.  Come and receive.  Come and participate, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/13/2010:

Remain standing on your firm spiritual foundation. You have to fight through the attacks of the enemy designed to take you down. You must gain the victory. Refuse to give up ground or to turn back or to go down, for that would signal your sure defeat. There is no honor is allowing the devil to win, says the Lord. Rise up and do battle; I am with you to bring the victory.

2 Samuel 23:11-12 And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines had gathered together into a troop where there was a piece of ground full of lentils. Then the people fled from the Philistines. But he stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. And the LORD brought about a great victory.

Believe And You Shall Receive, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — April 5, 2010:

This is My purpose, says, the Lord: I have come to bring you into My kingdom, an eternal kingdom. I have come to position you; to lead and guide you. Follow Me, and I will bring the blessing of the kingdom into your life. For not only will I bring you into the salvation experience, but I will baptize you in the power of the most Holy Spirit. I will reveal Myself to you, and I will provide for you. These things are absolute truth, so I say to you believe and you shall receive, says the Lord.

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

You are beginning a new cycle of events. As the earth is designed to go through cycles and seasons, so are you. The season you are entering into will parallel and be similar in essence to what you experienced in 2001. However, you now have more wisdom and spiritual maturity that will assist you in your journey. Be prepared for a new day and a new time of exponential growth, says the Lord.

Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.”

One may have awakened to the sound of the alarm at 3:00 AM.  One may have reset the time for 3:20 AM.  One may have got up at the sound of the next alarm.

One may have logged onto one’s computer and checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been eager to hear what the Lord had to say.  One may have been encouraged and yet puzzled about the year 2001.  2001 may have held many trials and tribulations for one.

One may have fallen short lately.  One may be discouraged and disappointed at some things that may be going on in one’s life.  One may want things to happen, yesterday.  One may not have done some things that one may have been instructed to do by the Lord.  One may not have felt like it due to one’s discouragement and disappointment.  Please forgive one for one’s rebellion Lord Jesus.

One may have considered one’s financial situation, which may have sealed it for one not to do a particular thing.  One may not have demonstrated faith.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus. One may not be in control, God is.

One may have opened one’s door to proceed to one’s prayer closet.  One’s cat may have been lying at the door.  One may have given the cat food and changed its water.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have sung praises to the Lord.  One may have been cleaning while one may have been praising.  One may have left one’s prayer closet briefly to get the brush for the cat that may have been getting cat hair everywhere.

While in one’s prayer closet one began to confess one’s sins.  One may have taken a long time with this.  One may have found that one consistently thought about situations that occurred during the previous day or one may have had vain imaginations about certain individuals and events.

One may have prayed to the Lord to help one to stay focus.  One may have talked with the Lord about the issues and asked Him to help take them away.  One may have known that the issues belonged to Jesus and one may have needed to let Him handle them.

One may have finally got through one’s confessions and it may have been past the time that one should leave one’s prayer closet to pray for outstanding prayer requests on a certain website.

One may have decided to stay with Jesus a little longer and to try to get back on track and to finish out one’s prayer time with the Lord.  One may have wanted to make things right with Jesus.

One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have asked the Lord to help one to remember the passage of scripture for today.  The scripture for today may be Jeremiah 21.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have forgotten the passage of scripture lately for several blogs.  No matter how much one may have prayed to the Lord and asked for help, no help came to one. One may have thought this morning that the reason for the lack of help may be that lately one would post the passage of scripture with out reading it for oneself.  This thought may have been recurring in one’s mind recently.

One may believe that the Lord may have been wroth with one.  One may get it and one may have promised the Lord to read today’s passage of scripture.

One may have read today’s passage of scripture before leaving one’s prayer closet.  One may have continued to read subsequent chapters as well.

This morning as one may write, one may feel alive at this moment and ready to do the Lord’s bidding.  Thank you Jesus for cleaning one’s slate and restoring one to one’s rightful place with You.  Thank you Lord for helping one to see the error of one’s ways.

One may have logged onto the website (after one left one’s prayer closet) to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Jesus for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, amen.
