SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

I need you to be quiet and learn to focus, says the Lord. Stress comes from a wandering mind and being too scattered. Take the time necessary to deal with or dismiss thoughts that are unproductive and that take you away from your obedience to Me. It is time to clean up your thought process and at the same time clean up your spiritual atmosphere in order to gain greater clarity of purpose. You will be delighted with the results.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

The gates are open.  Go through the gates.  Raise the standard.  Run the race.  Believe and you shall receive.  My glory is coming upon My people — coming to you to provide a spiritual atmosphere in which you will be forever changed.   Come and abide in My presence, says the Lord.  Come and receive the anointing.  Come and receive the glory and let it nurture you; let it strengthen you; let it heal you; let it bring you higher within My kingdom than ever before.  I am now providing hinds feet to My people so that you can climb the mountain and come up to Zion’s hill into the glory.  Come!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: 

Be reminded that “NO” is an anointed word, and you don’t have to apologize for using it as often as is necessary.  The enemy will accuse you of being heartless and will send a hefty dose of guilt and condemnation your way, but this attack is a seduction.  It is designed to lure you into countering a haughty spirit with haughtiness and control with a power struggle when “no” is sufficient.  It doesn’t have to be a fight, just stand your ground and maintain good boundaries, says the Lord.

 Proverbs 26:17  He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a dog by the ears.

Be Still And Draw Near To Me

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/12/11:

As much as you try to keep all of your ducks in a row, so to speak, you still feel out of sync. This is because you are sensing the turmoil in the spirit. There is a clamoring for position in the unseen realm as powers of darkness station themselves to take advantage of opportunities to rule in the political arena on earth. The spiritual atmosphere is one of chaos and confusion at this time, but you can find your peace in My presence as you trust in My guidance and protection, says the Lord. Be still and draw near to Me.

Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

I Have Given You Authority Over All The Powers Of Darkness

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/22/11:

Take time to look and discern your spiritual atmosphere. Then, you must war against the darkness by active resistance and bring light to your environment by establishing truth. In this way you will facilitate victory over all the works of the enemy. Quiet your flesh and exercise your faith to accomplish this task, knowing that I have given you authority over all the powers of darkness. Do not be afraid, says the Lord. I have called you to overcome.

Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/15/11:

Be still, watch, and discern. If you will quiet your thoughts and silence your feelings, you will have the ability to recognize and identify your spiritual atmosphere apart from your soul and be able to move through difficulties with ease.

I Say To You, Examine The Nonsense In Your Thinking

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 1/10/2010:

I say to you, examine the nonsense in your thinking.  For I say, indeed, many of you are occupied with nonsense.   But, I would have you choose to believe and receive that which I am bringing and imparting rather than leaning on your own understanding.  Reflect on and examine your thoughts, attitudes and  motives.  Then, turn your eyes upon the heavenlies and the glory that I am releasing and the revelation of My purposes.  My purposes for you are not to muddle around in the things of the world, but for you to ascend on high and live in the realm of heavenly experience.  For the kingdom itself is now demanding that you live within self-restraint.  You must now begin to live the Christian life in a new and profound way, in a glorious way; thinking upon heavenly things, and upon those things which I have spoken to you rather than being absorbed in the trauma of your own life or in judgmentalism, jealousy or the tribulation that your negative thinking brings you into.  So rise and come higher, says the Lord, and let the wind of My Spirit move you, and let the anointing of My word perfect you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/10/2010:

Beloved, I want you to be a gatekeeper and a watchman over your environment. This is a position of spiritual discernment so that you allow only the things that build up and not the things that tear down. I would have you to be on high alert and aware so that you have holy precision in knowing what comes in and what goes out. I have given you absolute authority to accept or reject those things that affect your spiritual atmosphere, says the Lord.

Isaiah 21:6 For thus has the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman, Let him declare what he sees.”

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 Proverbs 5.  Thank You Jesus!

Stay Focused On Me And Allow Truth And Righteousness To Prevail

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Chaotic conditions abound, but you do not have to be affected by your environment if you stay in My presence and maintain peace and order, says the Lord. Stay focused on Me and allow truth and righteousness to prevail. This is a time when it is better to stay quiet so that you can perceive and discern the spiritual atmosphere and be ready to prevail over all evil. And, after you’ve done what you can do, stand in a strong and uncompromising position.

Ephesians 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

One may have awakened early this morning and may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today after it may have been received in one’s e-mail inbox.
