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.

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 the sick.

Raise Up A Standard In Your Own Life That They May See

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

There are those who are worried about their own spiritual progression. And, there are those who are worried about other people’s spiritual progression. And, so I say unto you bring them before Me. You come to Me personally and if you have thoughts and concerns about others, bring them to Me. Bring them to Me in prayer. Bring them to Me spiritually. Fight the good fight of faith on their behalf. Raise up a standard in your own life that they many see. So, that they may follow the standard that you have established through your relationship with Me, says the Lord. Do not be deterred and do not be dissuaded by the work of the enemy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, I am calling you to a new spiritual level. When I call you I make a way for you and provide for your journey. You need not be afraid of missing out because you will be compelled by the pull of My Spirit to take you higher. All you have to do is release your desire to Me for this purpose and surrender to the movement and flow of My Spirit, says the Lord. Prepare your heart for more than you could have imagined.

Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Let There Be No Divisions Among You, My People

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Let there be no divisions among you, My people. It is My will for you that you live in peace as much as possible. Division has its root in pride, and I would have you not provoke one another or start a fight. I am calling you this day to be humble and to forgive those who have offended you or caused you distress. Let this be a new day and a new season of humility and forgiveness, says the Lord.

Romans 12:18-21 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Arise My People, For This Is Your Finest Hour

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

Arise, My people, for indeed this is your finest hour. This is not just a cliché; it is a spiritual truth. For, I intend to bring forth a glorious church. And, it shall be done. So, I say to you, arise. Shake off the defilement of discouragement. Fight the good fight of faith against the power of heaviness. Indeed, you will prevail for I am with you. I am with you to strengthen you and to carry you through the ordeals of this life. I will walk with you through the fire and on the water. I will be with you when the wind carries you into the fullness of My purposes. Get up and lift the hands that hang down in weakness. Strengthen the feebleness of your walk. Those that come with Me and lean upon My strength and My power shall have the victory. I am delivering you from all that hinders you. I’m removing from you the stumbling blocks the enemy has placed in your path. I will make a way for you to come into the fullness of your destiny. For, it has been determined in the heavenly council and shall be performed by My Spirit, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Refuse to allow disappointment or discouragement to undermine your faith. You must keep your faith strong if you are to receive what I have promised, says the Lord. Unbelief is your enemy.

Romans 4:20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.

Your Battle Is Not With Those Around You, But Against The Devil

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
 

Set a post in a high place spiritually where you can see and discern every move of the enemy.  You must keep yourself in a constant state of awareness and ready to fight against each attack as it comes.  But, you must delineate people from demonic forces.  Your battle is not against those around you, but against the devil.  Your war is in the spirit and not in the natural realm.  You will gain the victory through faith, says the Lord. 

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/23/11:

Refuse to allow yourself to get weary while standing in faith, in prayer, or in warfare. Seek My face and come into My presence where you can be refreshed and renewed. This is no time to get discouraged. Don’t give up! You are at the point of a significant breakthrough if you will just continue to fight through the opposition. Be strong and resolute, says the Lord.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

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.

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — Sept. 27, 2010:

You are My people.  You are My beloved.  I have given Myself for you and I have put Myself in you.  Therefore, be that which is spoken of in My word.  Be an overcomer.  Be one who worships and gives praise to God Almighty.  Be one who fights the good fight against the enemy when He comes in like a flood.  Raise up the standard of My word as the sword that defeats the enemy.  Indeed you are My battle axes and I go with you to battle.  Fear not for I am with you.  Go forth in the power of My kingdom and defeat the enemy for I have given you authority.  Behold I give you power and nothing by any means shall hurt you.  Have no fear.  Walk with an openness before Me and I will cause your thoughts to be My thoughts and your ways to be My ways, says the Lord God Most High.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 27, 2010:

I  hear the Lord saying that even though you are in a time of harvest this is also a season when the sowers overtake the reapers.  He said that you are also in a time of sowing seeds for the next harvest.  There is an acceleration and what you sow now will reap its reward.  Be careful how you sow.  Be aware of what your seeds are.  Make sure that your good seeds are sown in good ground.

Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

Something Has Changed In Your Spiritual Atmosphere

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — June 2, 2010:

Have you noticed that something has changed in your spiritual atmosphere? Yet, because you have not identified this change, it just seems strange. I have released the power of grace over My people. Evaluate how it affects your soul and your environment and remember it, for surely the enemy is preparing to attack again. And, when he does you will notice the change and be prepared to fight against him. Be aware and be sensitive to these spiritual shifts, go with the flow, and act accordingly, says the Lord.

Romans 13:11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

One may have awakened on one’s own this morning.  One may have fallen back asleep only to wake later feeling refreshed.  One may have thought that one may have missed one’s prayer time.  One may have remembered that one may have possibly left one’s phone in the car.

One may have discovered that one had not missed one’s prayer time.  One may have checked for today’s Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  It may not have posted.  One may have checked a few more times and it may have loaded after several attempts.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  The message may have spoken to one’s heart.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

Rise Up In The Authority I Have Given You To Defeat The Powers Of Darkness

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 28, 2010:

I have spoken to you about a time of war and entering a higher level of warfare. Did you think you would not be attacked? For, indeed, the devil is seeking to bring destruction where he can. You, My people, must be awake, alert and aware, and rise up in the authority I have given you to defeat the powers of darkness that have come out against you. When you take a stand and fight, you will find that the enemy who has come against you one way will flee seven ways. Do not fear. Be courageous and bold, and the enemy will be under your feet shortly, says the Lord.

Romans 16:20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen

One may have awakened this morning.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have paused after the first two sentences and wondered if the Lord may have been talking directly to one.  One may have asked the Lord questions concerning attacks from the enemy lately.  Thank You Lord Jesus!

One may have done some writing.  One may have believed in one’s heart that the service would be working by the time one may have been ready to get up for the day.  When one may have awakened later this morning, one’s service may have been on.

One may take the time to pray for outstanding prayer requests soon.  Thank You Lord for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.
