SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

My desire for you, My beloved, is that your obedience is of primary importance and that you do nothing apart from My leading. You are living in a time when distractions abound, and there are constant seductions to satisfy fleshly desires that pull at you to get you off course and out of the flow of My Spirit. Yet, it is a small thing to set your heart to do what I have given you to do and to go where I have intended, says the Lord.

John 5:19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.”

Set A Watch Over Your Circumstances

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

Set a watch over your circumstances. Watch for the enemy’s intrusion. Be still and know that I am God, and watch for that which I will teach you as I work in your circumstances. Only believe. The hardest of these trials will bring you to a place of perfection. They will bring you to a place you have never yet been. They will establish you fully in My kingdom, says the Lord, living under My divine rule. And, out of that rule shall come the glory that I carry and distribute as a result of your faith and trust in Me.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, I am calling you to a higher and more concrete level of faith that will become the basis for activity and endurance. Much of your spiritual function has been fueled by hope rather than faith and trust in Me, says the Lord. I would have you come to a level of true belief according to My will and purposes.

John 16:23 And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.

The Just Walk By Faith, Believe And Receive By Faith, Says The Most High

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 8/29/11:


I hear the Lord saying receive your victory today. Do not wait for it to come when necessary, but receive your victory this moment. Reach out by faith and allow Me to bring the victory that is before you that can be yours this day without the waiting. And when this victory comes to your heart there will come the sound of rejoicing within. Your faith will cause your spirit man to rejoice, even before that which you need comes. So, I encourage you to receive by faith the victory that you require this moment. The just walk by faith, believe and receive by faith, says the Most High.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/29/11:


You are living in times when it is of utmost importance for you to discern between truth and error; between My will and seduction from the enemy. Time is short, and you must stay the course and not be taken off track. Be alert and let My Spirit lead you. Otherwise, you will be led by your own desires and imaginations, says the Lord.

Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

My Word Is Your Standard; Measure Everything By It

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/20/11:

You have been called and set aside for My purposes alone. Do not allow the enemy’s persuasion to lead you into worldliness and complacency. You are living in the time of the great falling away where apostasy abounds, and that which is ungodly and unholy will be presented as not only acceptable but desirable. Refuse to compromise the truth. My Word is your standard; measure everything by it, says the Lord.

Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

Yield To My Leading, And I Will Direct Your Steps

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/5/11:

It is My Word that reveals the thoughts and intentions of your heart. Let the truth separate the flesh from the Spirit and expose your motives. I want to motivate you with purity and righteousness to do all that I have set before you to accomplish. Be aware, however, that the enemy will do his utmost to keep you from walking and living in the Spirit. Yield to My leading, and I will direct your steps, says the Lord.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

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 2 Kings 23 – Josiah follows the law.  Thank You Jesus!

It Is Time My Children For You To Arise To Your Kingdom Position

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 4/18/11: 


I heard, today, God asking us rhetorical questions.  Where are you?  Are you living in the feast of this hour?  For He would say it is time, My children, for you to arise to your kingdom position.   Move forth into the flow of My mighty river and the power of My glorious fire.  Let it burn.  Let it become a beacon of light in this world.  Let the fire of a consuming God prepare you, for that which is coming, says the Lord Most High. 

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 4/18/11: 


Watch for the signs in your natural environment that confirm the fact that I am calling you into new spiritual territory. Your first inclination will be to stay where you are in the comfort and security of what you know. But, I tell you that the cloud has lifted and it is time for you to move ahead. Overcome the temptation to stubbornly sit down where you are instead of going with the flow of progression. Come with Me, says the Lord.

Exodus 40:36 Whenever the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would go onward in all their journeys.

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 Ezekiel 11 – Jerusalem’s leaders.  Thank You Jesus!

This Is The Fire That I Send Upon You Even As I Did In Days Long Gone By

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 1/04/2011:

Is it not written that in the last days I will pour My spirit out upon all flesh? And, are you not living in the last days and are you not made of flesh? Therefore what hinders you and keeps you from receiving this fresh baptism that I am pouring forth? The fire of My water, the fire of My word, My water and My wind will now come upon My people. I say, you need this — this fresh baptism of My fire that will come and burn out the old, the doubt, the hindered faith, and the sins that keep you from Me. This is the fire that I send upon you even as I did in days long gone by; even as it was on the day of Pentecost when My fire came upon My beloved and upon My church. And, were they not forever changed? Did they not then begin to flow in the power of My kingdom? So I offer this to you, My people, in this season as those who dwell within My kingdom that are hungry; and those who dwell within my kingdom who are seeking and asking and knocking. For it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and over running in this season, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/04/2011:

Put your shoulder to the wheel and do the work that is set before you without grumbling or complaining. Be a good steward of what you have been given and what you have been given to do. Be righteous in your attitudes and motivation, for you are the light of the world. Refuse to allow your light to dim or be put out; let others see Me through you, says the Lord.

Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven

You Are Living In Perilous Times, And The Enemy Is Doing All He Can To Take You Down

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/10/2010:

Stand strong in the face of adversity. You are living in perilous times, and the enemy is doing all he can to take you down. But, you belong to Me. You are Mine, and I am yours. We are one in the kingdom of eternity. Stay focused on truth and resist the devil and his lies. I am with you to bring you through to victory, says the Lord.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.

Come To Me With Boldness, Faith And The Knowledge That I Am For You And Am With You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — August 30, 2010:

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, take up the measuring rod.  Apply the plumb line and the standard of truth to your own lives.  Before you evaluate the things that are coming upon the earth apply My measuring rod to your own lives.  Surely I shall show you that which is out of order, that which is not plumb, that which needs to have correction brought to it, for you are living in these times when judgment must begin at the house of the Lord before it comes upon the whole of the earth.  So knowing that, the Lord says, rise and measure.  Measure your life, your thoughts, your motives.  Examine yourself to see that you are in faith and that you have established the Lord of Glory as your first priority.  Examine yourself to see if you are living the example of Christ in the earth.  Examine yourself today to see if you are believing Me with a whole heart and to see if your faith is little or big.  Do all of this examination with absolute confidence that I will bring you to the point of perfection, for I shall indeed finish the work I have begun in you.  Rise up and do not stay where you are, but come to Me with boldness, faith and the knowledge that I am for you and am with you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 30, 2010:

Even in your times of busyness be assured that you can do all that requires your attention in a position of absolute trust and rest in Me, says the Lord. Refuse to allow the enemy to pressure you to the point of carelessness or of losing your peace.

Psalms 116:7 Return to your rest, O my soul, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.

You Are Living In Perilous Times Where The Greatest Peril Of All Is To Be Asleep Spiritually

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 25, 2010:

I am shaking you, says the Lord. This is not a violent or destructive shaking; it is a gentle but persistent shaking to awaken you from the sleep of complacency and the doldrums. I am calling you to awaken from this slumber of religious routine and spiritual boredom to renewed awareness and excitement of spiritual reality. Many of you, My people, have shifted your focus from life in the Spirit to life in the flesh. It is time to renew your commitment and stir up your desire and zeal for the things of the Spirit. You are living in perilous times where the greatest peril of all is to be asleep spiritually.

Matthew 25:1-13 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”
