Be Encouraged And Learn To Live In The Moment

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 5/24/11:


Be encouraged and learn to live in the moment, for as you learn the art of living in the moment and seeking My face, that moment will become a treasure to you rather than a judgment. It will become a blessing to you rather than a curse to you. I am seeking those who are Mine, and they must be found seeking My kingdom first. If you do not learn to live in the moment, the signs that I provide, the instruction that I desire to impart to you, and the blessing of that moment will all pass you by and the opportunity will be gone. So, become spiritually awake to such an extent that you are living in present reality. Make sure in this season that you take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/24/11:


Beloved, establish justice in your own heart and do what is right, for I delight in goodness and am merciful to those who show mercy. I value uprightness and will bless those who consider others more highly than themselves. Maintain a standard of honesty and fairness regardless of the corruption that abounds on the earth, says the Lord. Overcome evil with good.

Amos 5:24 But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.

Draw close to Me, says the Lord. You do live in perilous times where the enemy is on the prowl seeking to find opportunities to attack and afflict you. However, if you will maintain a personal, vital, and intimate relationship with Me and do not sin, the enemy cannot touch you. You must live and walk in My Spirit. Be free!

1 John 5:18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.

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

Be Undaunted In The Face Of Danger Or Adversity As You Believe The Truth That Will Set You Free

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/16/2010:

Throw caution to the wind and launch out into the deep waters of revelation of My purposes for you. I am seeking those whose hearts are willing to risk everything to live life in the Kingdom to its fullest. Refuse to allow fear to be a restraining force, and dare to believe My Word and allow its demonstration in every circumstance. This is no time to puddle around in shallow faith. Be undaunted in the face of danger or adversity as you believe the truth that will set you free, says the Lord.

John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

I Go Before You And Am Also Your Rear Guard

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Sharpen your discernment to see the tactics of the enemy to manifest his will in your surroundings, and do not be dissuaded by his lies. Rather stand in the truth of My Word and be strengthened by the goodness of My thoughts and intentions toward you. You must choose to be strong in Me and in the power of My might as the enemy goes about like a roaring lion seeking an opportunity to devour you, says the Lord. I go before you and am also your rear guard.

Isaiah 52:12 For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight; for the LORD will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s alarm.  One may have been half asleep and thought it to be the phone ringing.  After a few moments may have passed, one may have come to oneself.  One may have looked at the time and it may have been 3:32 AM.  One may have been late for one’s prayer time with Jesus.

Come For A Time Of Restoration And Healing Of Body, Soul And Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — April 13, 2010:

When you find yourself pushing hard, you must also take the time necessary to rest. Your refreshing comes from quieting your soul and seeking to be in My presence, says the Lord. Unburden yourself and come for a time of restoration and healing of body, soul and spirit. I will breathe new life into you when you take the time and make the effort to come.

Acts 3:19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.

One may have awakened this morning to the sound of the alarm.  One may have dozed off for a few minutes.  One may have awakened and assumed that one may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.  One may have checked the time, it may have been 3:28 AM.  One may not have been late but knew that one may not have been able to get prepared and enter one’s prayer closet on time.

One may have logged onto one’s computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!  One may have gathered items needed for one’s prayer closet time.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:33 AM.  One may have been late.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.  One may have praised the Lord with songs of praise, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Ezekiel 41.  Thank You Lord Jesus.

I Move On Those Who Are Moving

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — March 22, 2010:

Many of My people find themselves in a present quandary, not knowing what to do; seeking Me for answers. Because the lies have come there is a quandary, and you do not understand and do not know what I will do. So, I say, rise up and give legs to your faith. Is it not spoken in My word that I will give you wisdom? And, if you will believe for that wisdom will you not receive it? What are you waiting for? Get up and go! Get up and move! Many of you, My people, are waiting for Me to move while all the time I am waiting for you to move. I am waiting for you to exercise your faith to believe and to receive. Be done with the quandary and allow the confusion to go and allow the questioning of My word and questioning of My desires to be dismissed from you. Remove the lies of the enemy so that you can get up and go. I move on those who are moving. Stop waiting for Me to move, says the Lord, and begin to move by faith; move by truth. As you begin to move you will find those things which you desire; the wisdom that is necessary; the open doors that I have set before you. Walk through them. You must be walking and moving by your faith. So, one more time I say, give legs to faith and allow that which I am doing to come to pass in this time and season, says the Lord Most Holy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 22, 2010:

In a vision I saw a brier patch, then a tangle of twigs, and then a snare or a trap. I believe these all mean the same thing. A brier patch is a mass of woody, thorny, prickly-stemmed plants. A tangle is a twisted mass. A snare is something by which one is entangled. Then, I heard the Lord say that He will give us discernment of thoughts or situations that have the potential of entangling us by bringing us into confusion. Then, as we yield to His power of extrication, He will set us free and bring absolute clarity of spirit and soul.

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have looked up the word “quandary”.

  • quandary – predicament, plight, difficult situation, awkward situation, trouble, meddle, mess, confusion, difficulty, dilemma, mare’s nest; informal sticky situation, pickle, hole, stew, fix, bind, jam.

One may have continue to read the message very slowly and thoroughly.  One may not have wanted to miss anything.  As one may have read, one may have thought what the title might be for today’s message.  One may want something that may draw the reader.

Truly, one may believe that each person is drawn to read these messages by the Lord and that it is His doing.  So one’s title may be secondary if anything at all.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet late, after 3:30 AM.  One may have spent too much time reading the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  Also, one may have looked for an item that one may have been unable to find.

One may have started one’s praise to the Lord with song while looking for the object and doing other things while outside of one’s prayer closet.  One may have felt led to look into a certain room for the object.  One may have said to the Lord that one would look there.  One may have been looking everywhere else and chose to look in this place last, thinking that it may not be there.

One may have entered the room and may not have seen anything.  One may have looked elsewhere and all around only to find oneself back in the room.

One may have turned on the light and really looked.  The object may have been there on the floor.  Thank you Lord for leading one to this particular room.

One may have finished praising in one’s prayer closet.  One may have confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Job 34.  Thank you Jesus!

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, amen.
