It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

I am the Lord who watches over you. Have you forgotten that I know you? I know your troubles. I know those things that you struggle with. I know those things that you think about and the things that you set yourself to do. I know your motives and your attitudes. I know all about you. I know you better than you know yourself. I am leading and guiding you. I have never left you nor will I ever forsake you. I know all the things that are before you; the things that are yet unfulfilled. I know what the enemy is planning for you. And, because I know all of these things I am able to work on your behalf, and I am able to bring you through the storms and through the valleys of desperation and through the wars that you encounter. I am able to bring you into the place of liberty and victory if you will believe in Me, trust in Me, walk with Me, says the Lord.

Let Me lead you.

Psalms 29:11 The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.

Maintain Complete Trust And Faith In Me Alone

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/19/11:

Beloved, I have gone before you to open avenues of opportunity necessary to fulfill your purpose on the next leg of your journey. The doors are opening for you even now, but you must be alert to the possibilities and be aware of the leading of My Spirit. This will be true in the small or seemingly insignificant things of life as well as the things that could bring broad, sweeping changes. Your part is to go with the flow keeping your focus on Me, says the Lord, as you maintain complete trust and faith in Me alone. I want you to be like clay, malleable and willing to yield to the pressure of My hand through your circumstances, for there are things that still need to be reworked, shaped, and transformed into My image as you progress.

Jeremiah 18:2 -6 “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make. Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the LORD. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!

Rise Up In Battle, My Beloved, For Victory Is Assured

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 1/17/11:

Rise up in to battle, My beloved, for victory is assured.  It has been declared that My word will not return void.  I have given you power to defeat the enemy of your soul, the one who accuses you, taunts you, and lies to you.  He will be defeated, so take hold.  But do more than that; rise up and ride on the wind of My Spirit and ride upon the power of My word.  Rise up and allow the victory that is about to unfold, to become yours by faith.  Call forth those things which you cannot yet see.  Do so by faith and declare the victory for surely it shall come unto you, says the Lord Most High.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/17/11:

Even though your life seems to be transitional, begin to think of the steps you take as foundational. Don’t think that your thoughts, words, and actions are unimportant. What you do now will actually frame and give meaning to your future. Give thought and consider carefully what is happening in you and around you and respond according to the leading of My Spirit, says the Lord.

Deuteronomy 11:24a Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours.

I Am With You To Lead You In The Way Of Righteousness If You Will Follow

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

And, the rains come, says the Lord. For those who have been obedient to My Word and the leading of My Spirit, it will be a time of refreshing where you will experience a time of stimulation and a fresh, new beginning. But, for those who have been disobedient to My Word and in rebellion to the leading of My Spirit, it will be a time a confusion, chaos and destruction. I am with you to lead you in the way of righteousness if you will follow.

Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

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

One may have done a few necessary things before entering one’s prayer closet.  One may have looked at the clock.  It may have been 3:28 AM.  One’s daughter may have stopped one as one may have been about to enter one’s prayer closet.  One may have listened to one’s daughter briefly.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet and one may have checked the time.  It may have been 3:31 AM.  One may have thought that the time may have been off.  One may have checked the time in the kitchen as well.  It may have been 3:31 AM.  One may have been angry and may have thought that it may have been weird the way that the time may have moved so quickly.  One may have been late for one’s time with Jesus.  Please forgive one Lord for one’s anger and for being late, in Jesus’ name one may pray amen.

One may have praised the Lord, 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 Jeremiah 21.  Thank You Jesus!

Discard Erroneous Religious Concepts Or Traditions Of The Past

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Beloved, you will begin to see more clearly and precisely how I am leading and directing you. I am ordering your steps with exactness and accuracy. The days of vague recognition of My presence are over. But, you must discard erroneous religious concepts or traditions of the past and be willing to release your own desires and preconceived ideas in order to discern clearly. Then, you can enter joyously into the freedom of the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord.

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

One may have overslept for one’s prayer time this morning.  One may have gone to bed late last night.  One may have wondered if one would hear the alarm going off at 3:00 AM.

One may have awakened sometime after 5:00 AM.  One may have logged onto one’s computer and checked today’s Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 5:27 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have forgotten the scripture.

One may have left one’s prayer closet early to take one’s dog outside.  One may have prayed for the sick while walking the dog.

One may not have prayed for the outstanding prayer requests for today.  One may pray for the prayer requests soon.

One may have thought that a blessing had come through yesterday.  It may have been counterfeit.  Lord, please forgive one for one’s sins today and please let thy will be done in one and one’s family’s life, in Jesus name, one may pray, amen.

For What I Build Will Stand And Not Be Torn Down

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — April 7, 2010:

Remember that I have shown you that you are able to begin again on a clean foundation free from the works of the flesh, but I also want you to know that building by the Spirit has already begun. What I build will stand and not be torn down, for it is an eternal work. Your part in this process is to cooperate with My Spirit in this process and refrain from doing your own thing, says the Lord. Be sensitive to My leading.

Psalms 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

One may have awakened to the sound of the 3:00 AM alarm.  One may have reset it for 3:20 AM.  One may have thought to get up just a little before 3:20 AM.  The alarm went off.

One may have got up and logged onto one’s computer.  One’s printer began to come alive, churning as if it had something to print.  One may have initially thought that one’s daughter may be printing something from her bedroom.  We may have a WIFI capable printer.

The printer may have printed a document.  It may have printed, “according to your perfect will, amen.”  One thought this very odd.  One may consistently end one’s blogs this way.

One may have opened MS Word and checked the document from the previous day’s blog.  There may have been too much text on the second page and one knew that the printer had not printed from this document.  Also, no documents were open in MS Word.  One may have wondered if Jesus was giving one a direct message.  If so, what does this mean?

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 and may have taken along the document and a few other items.  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 Jeremiah 17.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have left one’s prayer closet.  One may have recorded the approximate time and date that this phenomenon (document mysteriously printing) occurred and put it away with one’s important documents.  One may have called one’s daughter to see if they had printed anything from the printer.  One’s daughter may have been asleep at that time and told one that they had not printed anything.

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.

Quiet Your Soul, Be Still, And Let Me Speak To Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Quiet your soul, be still, and let Me speak to your heart. Come into a place of quiet trust. Yield to the leading of My Spirit so that you can be positioned to receive all that is available to you. There are many great and precious promises awaiting fulfillment when you get in the right position to acquire them. Have faith in Me to reposition you at this time, says the Lord.

2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

One may have awakened late.  One’s cell phone have died last night.  One may have charged it but forgot to turn it on.  One may have quickly read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for  the day.  One may have been blessed and encouraged.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:41 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, and prayed for a passage of scripture for this blog..

One may not be able to recall the scripture for this day.  One may not write down the scriptures that the Lord may give to one.  One may believe that the Holy Spirit will bring it back to one.  At this point, one may have nothing.

One may remember that the chapter may have been one that one may have thought was refreshing and new.  One may believe it is chapter six of some book in the Old Testament.

One may have opened one’s Bible and looked at the names of each book and nothing may have looked familiar. Hmmmm?  One may have looked at the names of the New Testament as well.  Still, nothing.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests after one’s prayer time with Jesus.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your will, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.

Be Strong, Stay Humble

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Yield to the leading of My Spirit as I reveal more productive ways of dealing with problems and stress. I will open your eyes and your heart to see and receive wisdom before you react or respond. Be quiet and stay flexible, and you will come through difficult situations with greater ease. Be strong, but stay humble, says the Lord. Your success depends on it.

Proverbs 15:33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility.

While in one’s prayer closet one may have thought one heard one’s name being called.  One may have opened the door and discovered that one’s grandson may have been calling one.

The child may have had a nightmare.  One may have stayed with the child until they calmed down.  One may have re-entered one’s prayer closet to finish one’s prayer session.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord, for hearing and answering each prayer request, in Jesus’ name, amen.
