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.

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.

Rise Up And Shake Off The Cloak Of Heaviness And Despair

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Oct. 22, 2010:

I speak to those who are the point of desperation, and I tell you truly that when you think you are out of options and all is lost I am still with you. Even when you have suffered loss and can see no way out, I am the light in your darkness, and I will show you the way. Rise up and shake off the cloak of heaviness and despair. Look to Me for answers and direction, for I will certainly guide your steps. Set your faith and trust firmly in Me, says the Lord, and you will not be disappointed.

Psalms 42:11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.

One may have awakened early this morning. One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

Be Sensitive To The Leading Of My Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 21, 2010:

Be sensitive to the leading of My Spirit, for you are entering a time when you can truly put an end to procrastination and tie up loose ends. I am surrounding My people with an extraordinary measure of favor and grace to do all that is necessary. As soon as you choose to be done with the things that have overwhelmed you, the burden of heaviness will lift and you will be free to move forward. I will enhance and accelerate your every effort, says the Lord, but you must take the first step.

Hebrews 12:12-13 Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

One may have awakened early this morning and did some writing.  One may have fallen back asleep.  When it may have been one’s appointed time to get up, one may have felt really tired.  One may have considered sleeping another hour at least.  One knew in one’s heart that the thought was not possible and that one must keep one’s appointed time with Jesus at 3:30 AM.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.   It may have been the answer to one’s prayer from earlier in the morning.  One may have asked the Lord for help.  One may have actually written the prayer down in one’s writings.  Again, Jesus provided help and encouragement for one through the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  Thank you Jesus.  Now one may know what one must do.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time.  One may have sung praises to the Lord, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Ezekiel 3.

Thank you Lord for helping one to remember the passage for today. As one may have been writing just now one had absolutely nothing; one may have totally forgotten today’s passage of scripture and had no clue whatsoever.  One may have prayed to the Lord asking for help; Ezekiel 4 may have come to one’s mind.

One may have checked the post from yesterday to make sure that one was not thinking of yesterday’s scripture.  The passage of scripture from yesterday may have been Amos 1.

One may have grabbed one’s Bible and began to read Ezekiel 4.  One thought, “This is not it.”  Although one may have read this chapter in the past, it may not have felt familiar or recent.

One may have flipped the page back one, revealing Ezekiel 3.  One may have begun to read this chapter.  “That’s it!” one thought and thanked the Lord for His help.

One may have left one’s prayer closet at 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.

You Will Come Through In Victory If You Will Stand Unwavering In Hope and Faith, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!

The enemy has unleashed a whirlwind of confusion consisting of fear, infirmity and heaviness. He will do what he can to discourage and demoralize you. But, I say to you, resist the temptation to dump down into hopelessness or despair. Be calm and ride the wave of My strength that will take you through this barrage of attacks. You will come through in victory if you will stand unwavering in hope and faith, says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have thought how one may have felt so discouraged recently.  One may have felt a boatload of fear about upcoming events in one’s life.  One may know that Jesus is in control.  One may be grateful for the help and encouragement from the Lord.

One may wonder how the Lord will deal with circumstances that will arise soon in one’s life.  These circumstances must come to pass they cannot be avoided. Jesus may orchestrate these changes and one may look to Him for getting one through and carrying one in this new direction and destiny.

One may have sat at one’s computer, browsing, just a little too long this morning.  One may have checked the time; one may have been a few minutes late for one’s prayer closet.  One may have jumped up from the computer and hurried into one’s prayer closet.  One did not have any excuse for being late.  Please forgive one Lord, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

One may have praised the Lord with song.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed for the scripture for today.  One stood and held one head and Bible towards the highest heavens (3rd. Heaven) and prayed for the Lord to give one the scripture for today.  One may have opened one’s Bible and one’s eyes fell on Isaiah 29.  One may have flipped the page and one’s eyes fell on Isaiah 30.

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

Lord Jesus, thank you for answering one’s prayers and the prayers of those who may have left prayer requests at this particular website.  Lord, one may pray that your perfect will be done concerning one’s prayers, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
