SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Many of you, My people, will be seduced into going back in time to relive the past on some level. But, be aware that when you do that you will be opening the door to entertain old places of rejection, failure, and disappointment. This is not good for you and will hinder your walk in the Spirit. What you must do is stay present with Me, and what I am doing in, around and through you right now. You can do nothing about the past, but you can be strengthened and encouraged in the present, says the Lord.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

I Come Today And Reveal Myself To You As The Morning Star

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

I come today and reveal Myself to you as the Morning Star. Indeed, I speak of the shining brightness of the revelation that I shall bring at this time. Listen to the sound of the thunders and look for the treasures that have been hidden in darkness. Watch for what I show you to come to pass. I will come and ask you, “What is it that you see? What is it that you understand? What is it that you know about what I am showing you?” You will have to think about and even muse upon your answers. But, you shall come forth strengthened in your relationship with Me, says the Lord. You were formed out of the dust of the earth, that you would come forth and walk with Me so that I can speak with you and you can speak with Me. For this purpose you were created.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

My reward is in My hand, says the Lord, but it is your choice whether you receive the best that I have or become satisfied with something less. The best that I have is your spiritual inheritance in the kingdom. The something less is to desire physical and material blessings on earth. And, I say, if you seek My kingdom first you will have both.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

So, Lay Aside All Hopelessness, All Discouragement, All Worry and All Anxiety and Come Be One With Me, Says the Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

Do not be troubled. Do not allow anxiety to torment you. But, indeed, come aside unto Me this moment where you and I can be one together. And, in the unity of that oneness you will be strengthened, healed, and encouraged. You will receive the wisdom that you desire and need. So, come aside for a moment in these times to be with Me. Come aside and hear My voice and know that I will reveal to you signs and wonders. Then you shall see things that will reveal the direction that you should go. Therefore, watch for those things that I shall show you. Know that I am pouring out unusual signs and wonders among My people that will lead you into the very end of the very age. I will keep you steadfastly on the path of righteousness and will cause you to know Me better than you do even now. So, lay aside all hopelessness, all discouragement, all worry and all anxiety and come be one with Me, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Breakthrough is the order of the day. Circumstances that have seemed resistant to conclusion will now give way to resolution. This time of bringing things to completion will seem like a sweet and refreshing rain that breaks the drought or dryness that comes with stagnation. It will be like the breaking of a dam that frees the movement of a river to flow to its designed destination. Rejoice, says the Lord. Let the flow of My Spirit carry you to destiny.

John 7:38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

Be Aware, Beloved, That A Haughty Spirit Is Trying To Find An Inroad That Could Cause You To Stumble

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be aware, beloved, that a haughty spirit is trying to find an inroad that could cause you to stumble.  It will try to find a way in through misunderstanding and offense.  But, you are well able to discover it and avert its purpose, which is to divide and conquer.  Stay alert to the possibilities because you know that pride goes before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction.  These are not results that you want to endure.  Stay ahead of this one, and you will be strengthened, says the Lord.

Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

I Am The Lord Who Gives Life; I Give This Life To You In Abundance

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 11/8/2010:

I am the Lord Who gives you life; I give this life to you in abundance.  And, with this life comes the living waters.  Will you not drink?  And with this life comes the hidden manna.  Will you not eat?  For when you drink of My water and when you eat of My manna you are strengthened.  Wisdom will come to you.  Joy will be yours, and you will possess peace.  I say these are gifts that I give unto My people. These things I have promised and these things I now give.  So receive and allow your faith to function.  For when you touch the hem of My garment you will have that which you have asked for, that which you have sought for, and that for which you have knocked upon the door of My heart. So I say come, come now and receive of that which I give, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/8/2010:

I saw what seemed like a solid rock wall, and as I pondered this looming obstacle, I realized that each time I experienced a small victory and expressed my joy pieces of the wall turned to dust and fell to the ground. The more I rejoiced, the more victories I achieved, and the more the wall fell down until finally the wall that once stopped my forward progress was only dirt under my feet.

2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

It’s All About Jesus!


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, Says The Lord, To The Places That I Have Prepared For You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — February 22, 2010:

Have you seen My garden?  Have you been in My garden?  Have you drunk the water that comes from My garden?  Have you partaken of the fruit that grows in My garden?  For the garden was given to each one for your pleasure, for your health, for your provision and for the revelation of My word.  So, I call to you to come to My garden where all things began and where all things end.  For it is My good pleasure in this season to teach you the mysteries of the kingdom of God and to reveal to you My presence.  Come and drink fully of the waters of life.  Come and partake of the fruit of that tree that gives life.  And, let the leaves of it be for your healing and for your strength.  Come, says the Lord, to the places that I have prepared for you; come and enjoy; be renewed; be invigorated; be strengthened.   Come and be healed, says the Lord.

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

You will begin to see that things that have been held back will be released at this time. Be sensitive, and you will see that certain things that have taken a back seat, been on the back burner, or in the back ground will come forward and require your attention. For, this is the season when you can deal effectively with these issues. And, you might even say that it has been a long time coming, but in reality its time has only now fully come. And, I will give you the required wisdom, says the Lord.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.

One may have awakened to the sound of the alarm.  One may have looked at the time; it may have been 3:24 AM.  For some reason, maybe exhaustion, one may have thought that one had overslept and was late for one’s prayer time with Jesus.  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 under the assumption that one may have been late.  When one finally checked the time, it may have 3:33 AM.  Then it dawned on one that one may have been half asleep and disoriented when one may awakened.

Prepare To Emerge From Darkness and Uncertainty Into The Light Of My Presence And Glory

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 11, 2010:

Prepare to emerge from darkness and uncertainty into the light of My presence and glory. Even though there have been difficulties along the way, you will find yourself unexpectedly strengthened. And, those times when you felt like such a victim of situations, circumstances, and people will melt away and become a vague memory. The breakthrough that you are about to experience will far outweigh the trouble that it took to get to this point, says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Resist The Devil, For There Is No Temptation Too Great For You To Overcome

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Dec. 22, 2009:

Beloved, I have already brought warnings to you to guard your heart with all diligence. Be aware that the enemy is roaring around, looking for those who will get in his most dangerous territory through allowing their emotions to run wild. Guard your thoughts and emotions, and refuse to allow the devil to bring discouragement, disappointment and depression. Rise up and embrace My joy, says the Lord, and be strengthened in your inner man. Draw near to me, and place your hope in My love for you. Resist the devil, for there is no temptation too great for you to overcome.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

One may have awakened early this morning, a little after midnight.  One may have decided to write in one’s daily log.  After finishing one’s writings, one may have prayed and opened one’s Bible to Psalms 146.  One may have continued reading.  One may have read:

One may have noticed that all five psalms began with “Praise ye the LORD.”  One may have been encouraged.

One may have fallen back asleep.  The alarm may have gone off. One reset it for 3:20 AM.  When the alarm blared at 3:20 AM, one may have just laid there for a few minutes.  One may have gotten up and preceded to one’s computer.  Once logged in, one may have noticed that a pop-up window was open indicating that one should choose a network option.  Safari may have been open with a message indicating that it could not connect to the Internet.  One may have closed the pop-up window and Safari.

One proceeded to open Safari the second time.  One may have gotten the same message indicating that it was unable to connect.  The system again prompted one to choose a network for this computer.  One may have tried Firefox as well.  One simply did not have an internet connection.

One may have gone over to check one’s modem and router, both were unplugged.  One may have plugged them in.  One may have thought that one could not enter one’s prayer closet if this situation did not get resolved.  One may have been willing to miss one’s special time with Jesus.

One may have tried to open Safari again.  It may have been unable to connect to the Internet.  One tried to set the network, but the options that were available were not working.  One may have thought, “I have to get this resolved, I have to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.”

One may have thought to reboot the system and hopefully the desired settings would re-establish themselves.  One may have shut down the PC.  One restarted one’s computer.  Once logged in, one may have clicked on Safari and it may have connected as usual.  Thank you Jesus!

One opened one’s e-mail and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have done a few other things as well.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet late.  One may have begun to praise the Lord at 3:35 AM with joyful singing.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, and prayed for the sick.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 139.  Thank you Jesus!

After leaving one’s prayer closet, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Afterwards, one may have thought about how one was willing to miss one’s prayer time for the sake of one’s computer.  One may have wanted the issue resolved right away and felt that one could not do anything until one figured out the problem.

Lord, thanks for the help with the computer.  Lord, please forgive one for getting one’s priorities mixed up by putting one’s computer and routine before you, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
