It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 4/29/11:

I saw the letters “TGH”. What does this mean, LORD? “To Greater Heights!” It is time for you to go forth with a sense of action, adventure, excitement and expectation. If you stay where you are spiritually, you will miss out on one of the greatest moves of My Spirit that has ever been. Watch for opportunities to launch out in faith and do what I’ve given you to do. Be courageous, and refuse to allow fear to keep you from My HIGHEST and best, says the Lord.

Luke 5:4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”

One may have praised the Lord, confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.

In A Vision I Saw…

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/26/2010:

In a vision I saw small openings in the heavenlies like little windows, but each one would stay open for a short time and be gone and another would open for a short time and close. I sensed that these windows represented opportunities to receive, but I also had the sense that if we procrastinate in taking advantage of these opportunities, we could miss them.

Malachi 3:10 “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” Says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.”

Keep Your Focus On The Truth Of My Word

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Oct. 7, 2010:

Beloved, do not concern yourself with what you cannot see. I will show you things that you need to look at and understand as you go. It is important that you keep your focus on the truth of My Word. If you will stay in truth you will walk in freedom. When you find yourself in chaos and confusion it is because your mind is divided. Now is a time when it is of paramount importance that you guard your faith and focus, says the Lord.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

One may have finally awakened to the sound of one’s alarm after hearing it (but not comprehending) for several intervals.  It may have been exactly 3:30 AM.  One may have dashed to one’s prayer closet.  One may have made it on time.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have praised the Lord with song.  One may have left one’s prayer closet to take care of something that one may have decided, could not wait.  Next, one may have thought to take an awesome supernatural book with one into one’s prayer closet to thank Jesus personally for the book.

One may have looked for the book to no avail.  One may have prayed for the Lord’s help.  One may have thought that one may have left the book at an establishment.  One may have seen the book protruding from underneath an object.  One may have grabbed the book and may have taken it inside one’s prayer closet.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have decided that one needed to restart one’s prayer time.  Most of one’s time may have been wasted outside of one’s prayer closet.  One may have recommitted to staying the required duration and may have started one’s special time with Jesus all over again.

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 Amos 1.  Thank You Jesus!

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.

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.

Obedience Is The Key

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 27, 2010:

Watch and be on the alert for people who will try to take advantage of you. They will be motivated by selfishness and a sense of desperation without regard for your rights, space or boundaries. You must stand your ground and not be afraid to say NO; not just from a position of self-preservation, but because your real need is to stay in the flow of My Spirit and to respond only to My leading, says the Lord. Obedience is the key. Be strong and resolute.

Isaiah 30:21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.

One may have come to one’s self after a while and may have apologized to the Lord for a second time.  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 John 18.  Thank You Jesus!

Begin again as often as you need to in order to stay on track spiritually. The enemy is relentless in presenting temptations and distractions. Resist him. Stand your watch and be aware of his tactics to derail you and keep you from victory. Continue on the straight and narrow path that leads to newness of life and greater spiritual heights, and do not deviate from truth and righteousness, says the Lord.

Nahum 2:1 He who scatters has come up before your face. Man the fort! Watch the road! Strengthen your flanks! Fortify your power mightily.
