Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

I come today and reveal Myself to you as the Morning Star. Indeed, I speak of the shining brightness of the revelation that I shall bring at this time. Listen to the sound of the thunders and look for the treasures that have been hidden in darkness. Watch for what I show you to come to pass. I will come and ask you, “What is it that you see? What is it that you understand? What is it that you know about what I am showing you?” You will have to think about and even muse upon your answers. But, you shall come forth strengthened in your relationship with Me, says the Lord. You were formed out of the dust of the earth, that you would come forth and walk with Me so that I can speak with you and you can speak with Me. For this purpose you were created.

My reward is in My hand, says the Lord, but it is your choice whether you receive the best that I have or become satisfied with something less. The best that I have is your spiritual inheritance in the kingdom. The something less is to desire physical and material blessings on earth. And, I say, if you seek My kingdom first you will have both.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Raise Up A Standard In Your Own Life That They May See

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

There are those who are worried about their own spiritual progression. And, there are those who are worried about other people’s spiritual progression. And, so I say unto you bring them before Me. You come to Me personally and if you have thoughts and concerns about others, bring them to Me. Bring them to Me in prayer. Bring them to Me spiritually. Fight the good fight of faith on their behalf. Raise up a standard in your own life that they many see. So, that they may follow the standard that you have established through your relationship with Me, says the Lord. Do not be deterred and do not be dissuaded by the work of the enemy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, I am calling you to a new spiritual level. When I call you I make a way for you and provide for your journey. You need not be afraid of missing out because you will be compelled by the pull of My Spirit to take you higher. All you have to do is release your desire to Me for this purpose and surrender to the movement and flow of My Spirit, says the Lord. Prepare your heart for more than you could have imagined.

Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

The Enemy Has Laid A Snare For Those Who Have Become Over-Confident And Careless

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Complacency is a weapon formed against you. This is a time when you should be pressing through every hindrance to your relationship with Me, says the Lord. It is not a time to become self-satisfied or to justify spiritual laziness. The enemy has laid a snare for those who have become over-confident and careless. You live in troubled times, and it is vital that you establish the eternal kingdom in yourself and in your surroundings so that My light can shine in the darkness of the world.

Luke 11:33-36 “No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light. The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.”

Be Genuine And Deal With Your Relationship Problems In Humility And With Sincerity

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns–01/31/12:

In a vision I saw someone sanding a table until it was smooth, but when the job was done the table was no longer flat or level. The person went ahead and varnished it anyway. I asked the Lord to give me the meaning of the vision, and he showed me that the table represents social unity. Sanding it is the effort to smooth out a rough situation or a relationship. However, it is not level because dissension and insecurity still exist. The varnish indicates that the issue has not been dealt with honestly or with integrity, and the person is just putting up a front. And, the Lord says, you must forgive from your heart. Trying to fake it is hypocrisy and accomplishes nothing. Be genuine and deal with your relationship problems in humility and with sincerity.

Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 9/16/11:

Let Me Be Your All In All

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/12/2010:

Stop and consider that I am causing you to get back to basics. It is important for you to be established in the simplicity of faith, which is the basis of relationship with Me, says the Lord. And, it is time to strip away the things that have complicated and stretched your beliefs, your relationships, your finances, and your daily existence. Be content with the essentials, and let Me be your all in all.

Philippians 4:12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s 3:20 AM alarm on the morning of 11/12/10.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for this day.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

At 3:30 AM, one may have praised the Lord with song in one’s prayer closet.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for this day.  One may have been led to 2 Samuel 19.

One may have just prayed to the Lord this morning as one may be writing this message.  It may be 1:03 AM, on 11/13/10.  One may have been tired last night and may have fallen asleep.  One may have set one’s alarm to awaken one at 10:00 PM, yet one may have ignored the alarm and any subsequent alarms and may have continued to sleep.

One may have forgotten the scripture that the Lord may have given one for the blog and one may have had absolutely nothing.  One may have just prayed and asked the Lord for help.  One may have waited patiently.  2 Samuel came to one and one may have remembered some of the individuals who may have been in the selected text.  One may not have remembered the exact chapter.

One may have wondered if this chapter that one may have remembered had been from earlier this week.  One may have checked one’s blog.  There may not have been any scripture recently from 2 Samuel.

One may have grabbed one’s Bible and may have randomly opened it to 2 Samuel.  One’s eyes may have fell on the text concerning Mephibosheth.  This may have been the exact chapter that Lord may have chosen for this blog.

The Lord may have brought one back to the chapter and to the place in the scripture that may have pricked one’s heart at the beauty of the love and loyalty of Mephibosheth, Saul’s son to King David.  One may not have expected one’s heart to be touched, it may have just happened.  One may have been deeply moved by Mephibosheth’s humility and submission to the king that one may have been brought to tears that may have overflowed from one’s eyes and heart.  Thank You Jesus!

Everything That You Experience Has Meaning And Purpose In The Spiritual Scheme Of Things

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Things that have been out of order or incomplete are beginning to fall into place. You will now be able to see the whole picture more clearly as the sum of its parts. Everything that you experience has meaning and purpose in the spiritual scheme of things. I am presenting opportunities for you to come to a greater understanding of who you are in relationship to those around you, to the work that you’ve been given to accomplish, and in your relationship with Me, says the Lord.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

One may have awakened to one’s alarm going off this morning at 3:20 AM.  One may have lain in bed for a few minutes.  One may have finally checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have grabbed one’s things and hurried to one’s prayer closet.  It may have been exactly 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, talked to the Lord concerning issues one may have, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Mark 9.  Thank You Jesus!

For I Am The Lord Your God Who Watches Over All Things, And I Watch Over You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — February 15, 2010:

For you, My people, are in a season of change.  There are things that will change in your life now.  Remain hopeful for those changes will all be for the better.  There will be changes that will come that will re-direct you; changes that will necessitate My wisdom; that will stretch your abilities.  But, I say unto you this day, I will be with you in these changes.  For I am the Lord your God who watches over all things, and I watch over you.  I know the thoughts that I have of you; the thoughts of good and not of evil.  So, when you find it necessary to make changes that will effect your life and to take on new responsibilities or to go in a new direction then worship,  for I, the Lord God,  will lead and guide you.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 15, 2010:

Watch and be alert to distractions that will take you away from the purity of your relationship with Me, says the Lord. If you can concentrate on walking in the Spirit, you and those with you will experience spiritual breakthrough. And, you will never be the same again. Remember that I am building through you on a foundation that has been swept clean and the religious debris burned. It is of vital importance that you do not build according to flesh and temporal things, but build according to the leading of My Spirit that which is eternal.

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 and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  Today’s message may speak directly to one.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank you Jesus.

The Lord may have moved mightily in one’s life recently.  Things may be changing for the better.  The Lord’s promises to one may be coming to pass.  One may grateful, thankful and excited.  Thank you Jesus!

Come To Me, Knowing That You Have My Undivided Attention In The Midst Of Your Trials And Your Triumphs

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 1, 2010:

The work that I am doing in you, My people, is multiple and varied. What I do among you will encompass numerous aspects composed of distinct elements and qualities — diversified to the point that each individual in My kingdom will be treated uniquely. I do not see you only as part of a great and global assembly; I see you separately. I know your needs and your desires, and your relationship with Me is very personal indeed; yet you are part of an indivisible whole, the Body of Christ. Beloved, you are not hidden in the crowd, nor can you hide. Come to Me, knowing that you have My undivided attention in the midst of your trials and your triumphs. Go forth in the assurance that I am with and for you, says the Lord.

Romans 8:31-39 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

One’s alarm may have blared at 3:00 AM.  One turned it off and fell back asleep.  When one had finally awakened, it may have been after 3:30 AM.  One may have apologized to the Lord for oversleeping.

One may have logged onto one’s computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin a few times until one understood it.  One may have proceeded to one’s prayer closet and prepared oneself for this special time with the Lord.

One may have started one’s praise session with song at 3:52 AM.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.  While praying for the sick, one may have looked at the time.  It may have been exactly 4:52 AM.  It may have been time for one to leave one’s prayer closet.  Instead of leaving, one may have asked the Lord for more time and to forgive one for staying longer.  One may have wanted to finish praying for the sick.

After one finished praying for the sick, one may have stood and lifted one’s Bible towards heaven and prayed with all one’s heart for the Lord to give one and those who may read this blog, “scripture” that may be quite meaningful and profound.

One may have opened the Bible to Jeremiah 40.  One began to read and read Jeremiah 40 – 45.  One just could not put one’s Bible down.  Although one may have read this passage in the past; it was still very fresh and intriguing.

One may have left one’s prayer closet after one read the chapters from the Book of Jeremiah and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have been praying for individuals and right in the middle of praying one became engrossed in thought about Jeremiah 40 – 45.

One thought about Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, how he did evil and escaped those who sought his life.  One may have said to the Lord, “Lord when we read these passages, we read them as if these people are still alive on this earth.  But we have to remember that judgment has come to them and they got what they deserved.  Then one felt ashamed for wanting vengeance on the evil.  One may have said, “Lord, I don’t desire that anybody go to hell, why should I gloat?”  Then one may have said, “Gloat, is that even a word, what am I talking about Lord?”  One may have thought to be beside oneself.

One decided to type the word gloat into one’s dictionary.  One may have spelled it “glote” and it came back, “’glote’ could not be found.” One may have tried a different spelling: G-L-O-A-T. One’s dictionary may have retrieved: “gloat – contemplate or dwell on one’s own success or another’s misfortune with smugness or malignant pleasure: his enemies gloated over his death.” One may have been blown away.  One may have wondered, “How did one even know this word and used it correctly while talking to the Lord?  Wow!

One may have tried to focus on the prayers again.  This was too weird.  One may have felt cold and tried to ignore it until one finished praying.  One may have decided to get up and get one’s snuggle blanket with sleeves.  One may have wrapped oneself in it.

Earlier this morning, before one had entered one’s prayer closet, one may have attempted to turn on the space heater.  It may have come on but the heat did not blow out.  One tried it a few times and thought one smelled something burning inside so one may have turned it off.  One may have thought to let one’s daughter know it was broken.

So now one may have been standing with the snuggle on while looking for the space heater.  One did not see it and thought that one’s daughter may have taken it to their room while one was in one’s prayer closet.  One may have thought to warn one’s daughter that it was broken.  One may have noticed the cord lying on the floor and the space heater behind the computer chair.

One picked up the space heater and prayed to the Lord to heal it with his healing power.  Then one said, “No Lord, please fix it with your power!”  One turned it on and it worked perfectly.  It may still be on as one may be writing this blog.  Thank you Jesus!  One may have finished praying for the outstanding prayer requests.

Thank you Lord for answering one’s prayers and the prayer request for each individual from the website, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
