I Am the Lord Who Watches Over You

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.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

You are in a short season of adjustment when you will have opportunities to make changes that will more accurately meet your needs and requirements. Stay calm in this time and refuse to allow stress to steal your peace. Wisdom is being poured out in abundance so that you can find the most effective way to deal with every situation, 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.

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.

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Job 29.  Thank You Jesus!

Watch For And Discern Those Things That Remove You From My Presence

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/2/11:

There are adjustments to be made if you will live and walk in the Spirit. Watch for and discern those things that remove you from My presence, says the Lord. For, there are thoughts, motives, and actions that need to be overcome and abandoned for the sake of peace and eternal benefit. The enemy of your soul continues to watch for opportunities to destroy you. This is a time when you should make your call and election sure.

2 Peter 1:5-11 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

One may have heard subsequent alarms go off.  One may have been tired and may have continued to sleep.  When one may have finally gotten up, it may have been 3:40 AM.  One may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.  Jesus, please forgive one for not checking the time when one may have heard the first alarm.  One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:55 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song.

As one may have been preparing one’s prayer closet, one may have noticed that one’s fish tank may have been very cloudy and the water may have looked murky and brown.  One may have thought this odd due to one changing the water the previous day.  One may have put in a product to clear the water.  Fearing that the product may have been too old, one may have done an 80% water change.

One’s cat may have been getting on top of the tank recently.  One may believe that the cat may have drunk water from the tank’s filter and it may have put its paw in it as well.  One may have created a cover for the fish tank’s opening where the filter may be exposed that may allow air in and keep the cat out.  Thank You Jesus!  The fish may be doing fine.  Both the fish and cat may be three years old.

One may have reentered one’s prayer closet while continuing to confess one’s sins.  One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to 1 Kings 21 – Naboth’s Vineyard.  Thank You Jesus!

Don’t Forget That You Reap What You Sow; It Is An Immutable Spiritual Law

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/16/11:

It is of utmost importance that you understand that your authority in any given situation is the direct result of carrying out your responsibilities. If you are reluctant to take responsibility for your motives, actions and attitudes, your ability to progress will be greatly inhibited. Don’t forget that you reap what you sow; it is an immutable spiritual law. Now is the time to make adjustments where necessary so that you will reap a good harvest, says the Lord.

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet 3:47 AM.  Please forgive one Jesus for entering one’s prayer closet late.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Luke 12 Jesus Warns about hypocrisy.  Thank You Jesus!

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!

I Say To You, Examine The Nonsense In Your Thinking

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 1/10/2010:

I say to you, examine the nonsense in your thinking.  For I say, indeed, many of you are occupied with nonsense.   But, I would have you choose to believe and receive that which I am bringing and imparting rather than leaning on your own understanding.  Reflect on and examine your thoughts, attitudes and  motives.  Then, turn your eyes upon the heavenlies and the glory that I am releasing and the revelation of My purposes.  My purposes for you are not to muddle around in the things of the world, but for you to ascend on high and live in the realm of heavenly experience.  For the kingdom itself is now demanding that you live within self-restraint.  You must now begin to live the Christian life in a new and profound way, in a glorious way; thinking upon heavenly things, and upon those things which I have spoken to you rather than being absorbed in the trauma of your own life or in judgmentalism, jealousy or the tribulation that your negative thinking brings you into.  So rise and come higher, says the Lord, and let the wind of My Spirit move you, and let the anointing of My word perfect you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/10/2010:

Beloved, I want you to be a gatekeeper and a watchman over your environment. This is a position of spiritual discernment so that you allow only the things that build up and not the things that tear down. I would have you to be on high alert and aware so that you have holy precision in knowing what comes in and what goes out. I have given you absolute authority to accept or reject those things that affect your spiritual atmosphere, says the Lord.

Isaiah 21:6 For thus has the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman, Let him declare what he sees.”

One may have awakened a little after 2:30 AM.  One may have looked outside to see if there may have been snow.  There may not have been any snow whatsoever.

One may have busied oneself on the Internet.  One may have checked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin sometime after 3 AM.  It may not have been there.  One may have checked just before going into one’s prayer closet.  The Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may have been in one’s e-mail inbox.

One may have read the message for today and may have found oneself nodding and saying “Okay” to Jesus.  One may have known that one may be guilty of these very things.  One may have been encouraged.  One may desire to walk upright before the Lord.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Proverbs 5.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have left one’s prayer closet and may have looked outside.  There may have been snow.  Lord, please help those who may be traveling today in the snow to reach their destinations safely in Jesus’ name, one may pray, Amen.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Lord for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Rejoice That You Are Found Worthy Of Correction

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/7/2010:

I am drawing you closer to Myself, says the Lord, to prepare you for a divine visitation. And, I will bring conviction of attitudes, motives, and actions that are contrary to godliness. Be willing to yield to this further process of sanctification, for it is a necessary work to be done in this season. Rejoice that you are found worthy of correction.

James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

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.
