Subdue The Flesh And Bind The Enemy

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Do all that is necessary to maintain peace in your environment.  Subdue the flesh and bind the enemy.  For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. (James 3:16)  The power of division, strife and contention is invading governments from the national level to the local level and even personally.  Only you, My people, can maintain spiritual equilibrium in the midst of chaos.  I give you My peace, says the Lord.  

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/25/2011:

You live in times of great evil and adversity. Your only place of escape is in Me, says the Lord. You must come and hide yourself in truth and righteousness so that the enemy cannot touch you and nothing can dissuade you from My purposes and your life in Me. This is a deliberate commitment and takes effort to maintain, but I will give you the help and strength you need. Don’t get caught up in the issues of life and worldly concerns; keep eternal focus.

Psalms 27:5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

One may have begun to praise the Lord with song with song at 5:47 AM.

My beloved people, I am calling to you, urging you to draw near to Me into a place of spiritual vitality. It is My desire that you give no place for the lusts of the flesh, but that you completely yield to the moving of My Holy Spirit. In that spiritual reality, you will begin to live in the strength and protection of righteousness. Righteousness is a strong fortress against attacks from the forces of evil, says the Lord. Draw near.

Romans 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.

Overcome Evil With Good

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/21/11:

If you will learn the art of being the gatekeeper of your own soul by setting a watch over your eyes, ears, and mouth, you will be an overcomer in the temple of the Living God. You must learn to stop the intrusion of the enemy at the gate. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good, says the Lord.

Isaiah 28:5-6 In that day the LORD of hosts will be for a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty to the remnant of His people, for a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Isaiah 43.  Thank You Jesus!

Rise Up Now And Exercise Your Senses To Discern Both Good And Evil

It’s All About Jesus!


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

Discern now the condition of your spiritual environment. Has it been defiled by the negative words spoken from a heart of frustration? Rise up now and exercise your senses to discern both good and evil, and choose to only retain that which is good. Ask for the wind of My Spirit to blow through your circumstances to purify and clear your atmosphere of all pollution, says the Lord. Let it be!

Mark 7:20-23 And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”

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’s blog.  One may have been led to Judges 3.  Thank You Jesus!

I Have Given You My Word To Influence And Guide Your Choices

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

The battle of the ages is raging to transform you into the image of Christ while Satan also tries to make you into his image. I have given you free will, the ability to choose, says the Lord. The enemy has increased his pressure through your circumstances, difficulties, and persecutions to choose to respond to life with evil instead of good. But, I have given you My Word to influence and guide your choices. Be wise!
