Set Your Heart On Pilgrimage

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 9/30/11:

I was reminded of Psalms 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage. And, I heard the Lord say: Take to the highway, the narrow road that leads to salvation. Refuse to sit down and become stagnant in your current spiritual condition. Challenge yourself to press on in the way of progression and mount up to greater heights in the realm of the Spirit. Set your heart on pilgrimage.

The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns, but the way of the upright is a highway. (Proverbs 15:19)

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.  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 13 – The Linen Girdle.  Thank You Jesus!

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

I Am Your Salvation And Deliverance If You Will Only Look Up And Believe

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/14/2010:

The deep darkness around you has been a grief and a snare, but in the midst of the darkness you have heard My voice calling you to seek My face and to come to the light of My countenance. My ears are not deaf to your cries, nor is My arm too short to save. I am you salvation and deliverance if you will only look up and believe, says the Lord.

Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear.

One may have awakened this morning and 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.  One may have praised the Lord with song and then one may have decided to pray from one’s bedroom.  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 one to Isaiah 19.  Thank You Jesus!

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — April 5, 2010:

This is My purpose, says, the Lord: I have come to bring you into My kingdom, an eternal kingdom. I have come to position you; to lead and guide you. Follow Me, and I will bring the blessing of the kingdom into your life. For not only will I bring you into the salvation experience, but I will baptize you in the power of the most Holy Spirit. I will reveal Myself to you, and I will provide for you. These things are absolute truth, so I say to you believe and you shall receive, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — April 5, 2010:

You are beginning a new cycle of events. As the earth is designed to go through cycles and seasons, so are you. The season you are entering into will parallel and be similar in essence to what you experienced in 2001. However, you now have more wisdom and spiritual maturity that will assist you in your journey. Be prepared for a new day and a new time of exponential growth, says the Lord.

Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.”

One may have awakened to the sound of the alarm at 3:00 AM.  One may have reset the time for 3:20 AM.  One may have got up at the sound of the next alarm.

One may have logged onto one’s computer and checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been eager to hear what the Lord had to say.  One may have been encouraged and yet puzzled about the year 2001.  2001 may have held many trials and tribulations for one.

One may have fallen short lately.  One may be discouraged and disappointed at some things that may be going on in one’s life.  One may want things to happen, yesterday.  One may not have done some things that one may have been instructed to do by the Lord.  One may not have felt like it due to one’s discouragement and disappointment.  Please forgive one for one’s rebellion Lord Jesus.

One may have considered one’s financial situation, which may have sealed it for one not to do a particular thing.  One may not have demonstrated faith.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus. One may not be in control, God is.

One may have opened one’s door to proceed to one’s prayer closet.  One’s cat may have been lying at the door.  One may have given the cat food and changed its water.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have sung praises to the Lord.  One may have been cleaning while one may have been praising.  One may have left one’s prayer closet briefly to get the brush for the cat that may have been getting cat hair everywhere.

While in one’s prayer closet one began to confess one’s sins.  One may have taken a long time with this.  One may have found that one consistently thought about situations that occurred during the previous day or one may have had vain imaginations about certain individuals and events.

One may have prayed to the Lord to help one to stay focus.  One may have talked with the Lord about the issues and asked Him to help take them away.  One may have known that the issues belonged to Jesus and one may have needed to let Him handle them.

One may have finally got through one’s confessions and it may have been past the time that one should leave one’s prayer closet to pray for outstanding prayer requests on a certain website.

One may have decided to stay with Jesus a little longer and to try to get back on track and to finish out one’s prayer time with the Lord.  One may have wanted to make things right with Jesus.

One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have asked the Lord to help one to remember the passage of scripture for today.  The scripture for today may be Jeremiah 21.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have forgotten the passage of scripture lately for several blogs.  No matter how much one may have prayed to the Lord and asked for help, no help came to one. One may have thought this morning that the reason for the lack of help may be that lately one would post the passage of scripture with out reading it for oneself.  This thought may have been recurring in one’s mind recently.

One may believe that the Lord may have been wroth with one.  One may get it and one may have promised the Lord to read today’s passage of scripture.

One may have read today’s passage of scripture before leaving one’s prayer closet.  One may have continued to read subsequent chapters as well.

This morning as one may write, one may feel alive at this moment and ready to do the Lord’s bidding.  Thank you Jesus for cleaning one’s slate and restoring one to one’s rightful place with You.  Thank you Lord for helping one to see the error of one’s ways.

One may have logged onto the website (after one left one’s prayer closet) to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Jesus for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, amen.

My Love, Joy And Peace Is A Gift Given Unto You

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — Dec. 14, 2009:

I am the Lord who loves you, who cares for you, who watches over you.  I am the Lord who brings salvation into your life.  I am the Lord who heals you and preserves you.  I am the Lord who directs you and calls you into places that you have never walked before.  I will escort you through the valley of vision.  I am the Lord most high who knows you personally.  I know your name.  I know where you are going, and I know how to bring you to that place of victory, says the Lord.  I will do so in this present season, so get ready for transformation.  Get ready to transcend those things that have been bothering you; those things that have been shackles; those things that have held you.  For in this season I will elevate you and bring the truth of My reality into your life.  In this season I will allow you to understand in a fresh way that you belong to Me, and nobody can take you out of My hand.  For I am the Lord who watches over you; who provides for you; who delivers and heals you.  So, My children, do not forget these things for I know many lies have been spoken into your ears by the evil one.  I declare to you this day who I am to you personally.  My love, joy and peace is a gift given unto you.  Fully receive these gifts. Fully embrace by faith that which I have given, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Dec. 14, 2009:

As I was in the Spirit, I heard weeping and mourning, and I could sense an atmosphere of isolation and loneliness, a true wilderness. Then, I heard the Lord calling to the four winds, to the people of His heart, to gather His beloved. And, I knew that He was doing a work of re-gathering, in a true homecoming, those who had been scattered to the four winds. He will bring a sense of unity and peace to His people.

Psalms 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

One may have awakened around 2:20 AM.  One may have prepared oneself and one’s prayer closet for one’s special time with Jesus.  One may have checked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin a little before 3:30 AM.  One may have read the messages several times.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet and began praising the Lord with song.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.  One may have asked the Lord to lead one to a passage of scripture either for one or an individual who may read this message.  One may have been led to Psalms 101 and Psalms 102.

One may have spoke in tongues the remainder of one’s prayer closet time.  At 4:30 AM one may have left and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

What Is Required Of Me Lord?

It’s All About Jesus!

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — October 26, 2009:

Have you discerned this My people?  It’s a new season.  Some would say it’s a new day, and it is that.  Some would say it is a new hour, and it is that.  It is a new time and a new season in which I will come to My people in a very distinct way.   I will present Myself to you in such strength and power that you will be overtaken by My Spirit, says the Lord.  As I overtake you, My people, you will begin to understand what I have in mind, and you will begin to understand the process of life in Christ Jesus and of the working out of your salvation by the strength and power of the Spirit of the living God.  For it is to you I come in this season; each one individually, and of course, I will give corporate direction for My people that you may go the same direction; so that they might live in the unity and the power of the most Holy Spirit.  And, you might ask me, “What is required of me Lord?” Come unto Me.  Come present yourself to Me.  Come with a desire to know Me.  For those are the very simple things that will cause you to be elevated and brought up into the highest places of the Kingdom.  You have an inheritance that you must receive in this time.  You have worked and you have labored for long days and hours.  But, now is the season of receiving the rewards for your works and the fulfillment of the prophecies that are over you. Receiving the presence of My glory into your life will be the greatest thing that you have ever taken to yourself.  So, I say, “Come!”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 26, 2009:

I heard in the Spirit the sounding of an A, as in an orchestra tuning their instruments. And, the Lord said, “I am sending a long and distinct sound from heaven to earth so that when you hear this sound that you can come into harmony with Me and with one another. Listen carefully and move with the heavenly sound, for now is the time to begin to move into the things that I have prepared for you.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

One may have awakened by the alarm.  One surely wanted to get more sleep.  One’s grandson may have awakened one consistently throughout the night.  One may have lied there until a quarter after three.  One finally got up and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

One proceeded to the bathroom around 3:28 AM.  One began to tidy up quickly.  At 3:30 AM one started one’s praise session.  One began to confess one’s sins after one finished praising.

One may have been reading the book, “Unmasking the Jezebel Spirit” by prophet John Paul Jackson earlier yesterday and a prominent apostles face came to one’s mind and an individual whom one may know little to none about.  One began to lift the apostle up in prayer.  One may have asked the Lord if this was not Him revealing this to one, then to remove the thought from one’s mind or let it not evoke a desire to do something, to take away the power of the thought.

One spent all of one’s time confessing sins and asking questions of the Lord.  One may have fallen short in something that the Lord may require one to do.  One may have been wondering if one was capable of getting it done and should have tried knowing Jesus would take care of one or if one did the right thing in not doing this thing because of one’s physical short coming (ankle and cast).

Many things are changing and one may not know what or what not to do.  Please Jesus, help!

At 4:30, one logged onto the website to pray for prayer requests.  One turned on the heater but did not get sleepy, praise God!  Thank you Jesus!
