You Are Living In Perilous Times Where The Greatest Peril Of All Is To Be Asleep Spiritually

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 25, 2010:

I am shaking you, says the Lord. This is not a violent or destructive shaking; it is a gentle but persistent shaking to awaken you from the sleep of complacency and the doldrums. I am calling you to awaken from this slumber of religious routine and spiritual boredom to renewed awareness and excitement of spiritual reality. Many of you, My people, have shifted your focus from life in the Spirit to life in the flesh. It is time to renew your commitment and stir up your desire and zeal for the things of the Spirit. You are living in perilous times where the greatest peril of all is to be asleep spiritually.

Matthew 25:1-13 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”

One may have awakened early this morning.  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 and may have begun to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  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 Song Of Solomon 8.  Thank You Jesus!

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.

Many Of You, My People, Have Felt Dazed, Stunned, As If In A Stupor

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 12, 2010:

Many of you, My people, have felt dazed, stunned, as if in a stupor. This has been a very effective weapon that the enemy has used against you to keep you from being effective. But, I tell you honestly that this fog is going to lift, and the oppression shall cease. You will suddenly have clarity of mind and purpose like coming out of a deep, dark sleep into the bright light of day, says the Lord.

Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

One may have overslept again this morning.  This may be the third time this week.  One may be tired physically.  One may have a lot going on in one’s life.  One may have a very important assignment that one may need to get done soon.

One may not have remembered that one had not posted yesterday’s blog until one may have been reading the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  Please forgive one Lord, Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 4:10 AM.  One may have begun to praise the Lord, confessed one’s sins and the alarm on one’s phone may have gone off at 4:20 AM.  Unbeknownst to one, one may believe that one somehow set the alarm for that time earlier this morning.

One may have finished confessing one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed to the Lord for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Esther 9.  Thank you Jesus.

At 5:10 AM, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.
