Take Hold Of That Which I Am Giving You

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 4/4/11:

In a vision I saw the Lord throwing rescue ropes to those who are bound, those who are stuck.  And I heard Him say, so your are stuck–let Me help you.  Take hold of that which I am giving you.  Take hold of the life line and I will pull you out.   I will bring you through.  Take hold of that which I am offering.  The name of this line is freedom, liberty and glory.  Take hold.  Hold fast because I am going to pull.

I have seen the work of the antichrist and the spirits of divination and fear against you to try to distract you from My will and purposes, says the Lord.   I have heard the threats that terrify you and promise to bring you down.  I have been with you in the darkness of your isolation.  I have continued to bring comfort in your times of despair and uncertainty.  But, now hear My voice.  It is time for you to rise up and move out of that place of darkness and fulfill your destiny.  Do not be afraid, for I am with you and will go with you.  Again, I say, step out of darkness and embrace the light, says the Lord.  Refuse to be a victim of the attacks of the enemy.  Let go of condemnation, blame and bitterness.  Leave the past behind and welcome the new day.

Jeremiah 29:11-14 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.

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 Daniel 11 .  Thank You Jesus!

Stand Your Ground And Protect The Seed, Which Is My Word And My Promises Sown In Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/07/2011:

Set a watch, and refuse to allow your thoughts to take you down the path that leads to discouragement and despair. The enemy desires to steal your faith and expectation of My goodness, says the Lord. But, you must stand your ground and protect the seed, which is My word and My promises sown in your heart. Take care of of your inheritance, and be a good steward of what you’ve been given and what you’ve been given to do.

Luke 8:15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.

One may have heard the alarm go off several times this morning.  One may have thought that it was the 6:00 AM alarm and that one did not have to get up right then.  The alarm may have begun to blare once again.  One may have decided to turn it off.  One may have noticed the time.  It may have been 3:40 AM.  One may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.

One may have jumped up and logged onto one’s computer to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  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 Jeremiah 9.  Thank You Jesus!

If I Am For You It Does Not Matter Who Is Against You

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — April 26, 2010:

Rise up, My children, for indeed it is written and it has been spoken and it is true that the battle belongs to the Lord.  Because it is My battle; I will go with you, and I will strengthen you and teach you how to make war.  I shall bring My battle plans into your mind, and I will reveal the plans of the enemy to you.   You shall be able to go forth with a heart that is set on victory and a mind that knows the reality that if I am for you it does not matter who is against you.  For indeed you are My battle axes, but the battle belongs to the Lord.  So, I will lead and guide you.  You are not in this alone.  Take courage and take heart and rise up for you are crossing through the wilderness into the promises.  Rise up and receive the fullness of your inheritance for I am with you.  I have made a way for you and established the boundaries of your habitation.  I am in charge of your times of visitations and I will send you into war at the appropriate time and equip you for the victory.  Yours is to simply follow with a willing and obedient heart and to receive all that I have to teach you.  These are the days of the manifestation of the glory of God’s kingdom and the army that has been spoken of by the prophet Joel will now begin to arise into a fullness and the victory shall be theirs.  So come and go as I send you.  Be one with Me.  Follow Me absolutely for I shall walk with you on this path into the fullness of your destiny, says the Lord God Almighty.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — April 26, 2010:

Beloved, as long as you are distracted by worries and concerns, you are not discerning My leading. The only way to maintain spiritual clarity is to stay focused and not get sidetracked. Set your heart to know the truth without allowing your emotions and mind to cloud your spiritual perceptions, says the Lord.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy- meditate on these things.

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time.  One may have praised the Lord with songs of praise.  One may have prayed for one’s right foot that has been bothering one since Saturday morning.  One may not have injured this foot.  One may have prayed for one’s left ankle as well, it may have been hurting.

One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed a brief prayer for the sick.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 40.  Thank You Jesus!

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.

Set Your Sights Higher Than The Temporary Things Of The Earth

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 26, 2010:

Beloved, refuse to allow discontentment to encroach on your thoughts, for it most certainly has its roots in bitterness of soul and will make a place for the enemy to work against you. Contentment comes from a position of faith and trusting that I am for you and not against you; that I care for you. Take comfort in knowing that I am with you. Set your sights higher than the temporary things of the earth. Look heavenly, and renew yourself in the hope of my promises, 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 reluctantly this morning.  One may have been tired.  One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  Thanks Jesus for the help.

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.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 24.  Thank you Jesus.

For Your Body Is The Temple Of The Holy Spirit And Unbelief Should Not Be Found In Your House

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — February 8, 2010:

It is important in this season, My children, that you believe; that you come to a place of faith in My word and in My promises, and that you put all unbelief out.  For your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and unbelief should not be found in your house.  Your house belongs to Me, and I bring the power of faith to bear in your life.  Therefore, I say again, defeat all unbelief.  Make it your life’s work in this season that you will not allow it to question My word or to overshadow and steal My promises.  I say believe, for all things are possible to the one who believes.  All things may be received by the one who believes.  Be that one in this season; one with Me.   And, may it be said in your heart that I no longer live by the measurement of my own faith, but I now live by the faith of the Son of God, who has given Himself for me.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 8, 2010:

Now is the time when you can realize breakthrough and move forward in My purposes, for I am causing you to deal with your own heart and rise above the flesh into the Spirit where liberty abounds. Release yourself from everything — every thought, every emotion and every decision that has been in opposition to My name, says the Lord. Then, you will find the bondages broken and the chains of restriction removed so that you can flee from the prison of your own making.

Psalms 107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their chains in pieces.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged.  There may be things going on in one’s life that may require one to demonstrate extreme faith.  For only Jesus may be one’s present help.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet and praised the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Ezra 3.  Thank you Jesus.

Maintain Eternal Perspective

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 4, 2010:

Beloved, set a watch for opposition and division. Regardless of where it pops up or the reasons behind it or the justifications for it, it is still the work of the enemy. You can’t fix anything or work through anything in the flesh or by human reason. This must be done in the realm of the spirit by the Holy Spirit and maintaining godly focus. Remind yourself of My purposes, My work, and My promises, says the Lord. Maintain eternal perspective, which is to look beyond what is immediate and temporary to that which is eternal.

Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and may have received the message and it’s warning from the Lord.  One may have purposed in one’s heart to try to remember the Lord’s warning throughout the day.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time and began to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  One may have prayed to the Lord for His help.  Things may be most difficult in one’s life and one may not have seen the outcome coming on the horizon.

Later today some things may have happened that may have increased one’s faith and hope concerning events that may take place in the near future.  One must demonstrate tremendous faith at this point and trust that Jesus is busy doing and preparing one’s way.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  The Lord may have led one to Ezekiel 42.  One may have pondered in one’s heart, the Lord’s choice of scripture.  Thank you Jesus for the scripture for today.

One may have left one’s prayer closet a little after 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.
