Some Things Just Need To Be Left Behind

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/22/11:

It is time for reorganization. That which is past the point of usefulness in your life will be discarded to make way for what is more suitable to your needs and desires at this point in time. I am doing a new thing, and as you begin to discern and understand this new spiritual environment you will realize that some of your concepts and religious notions are no longer relevant, says the Lord. Some things just need to be left behind.

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Hear And Obey, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!

Take the time and make the effort to be still so that you can discern all that I am revealing to you spiritually. Then, don’t ignore the revelation. There are things in your life that need to be dealt with from your heart so that you can rise to a new level in the understanding of how you are to function in My kingdom. Hear and obey, says the Lord.

Deuteronomy 13:4 You shall walk after the LORD your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice, and you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him.

You Are Joint Heirs With The Christ, The Resurrection Power Of This Age

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 1/31/11:

Come a little higher, says the Lord, for I have called you to be creatures of the heavenlies, no longer bound to the earth.  Come, for the glory of My kingdom cannot be fully understood upon the earth.  So, I say unto you come up into the light of the glory of this season, for you will not be disappointed by the things I show you, nor will you be powerless as many have perceived.  For you are a people who dwell in the power of the kingdom and the manifestation of My kingdom is about to take place in a greater way than you can even imagine, says the Most Holy.  For I shall come and demonstrate Myself in the land.  And, I shall come even in the night time and whistle for your presence.  As I call you forth through the sound of My voice then I shall empower you, and impart to you the heavenly gifts that cause you to be more than mere men.  You are joint heirs with the Christ, the resurrection power of this age.  Come and drink fully of My Spirit for the word of truth shall come forth in power and in greatness.

Lift up you head and look to Me, says the Lord. You may feel like you’ve been in a desert, but I have prepared a well for your refreshing. Come and drink of My word as you seek Me for truth that will establish you in faith and hope. Do not despair. I will refresh you and bring restoration and healing to your troubled soul.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Seek My Face, Says The Lord, And Put Your Trust In Me

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/25/11:

I have set you on a journey. I have a plan for your destiny. But, if you narrow your focus so that all you can see are the challenges along the way and the things that are going wrong, it will keep you from making spiritual progress. You cannot maintain a healthy life in the Spirit if you continue to get into self-focus or self-pity. Look up. Seek My face, says the Lord, and put your trust in Me.

Matthew 28:20b … lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Matthew 12.  Thank You Jesus!

Maintain Complete Trust And Faith In Me Alone

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/19/11:

Beloved, I have gone before you to open avenues of opportunity necessary to fulfill your purpose on the next leg of your journey. The doors are opening for you even now, but you must be alert to the possibilities and be aware of the leading of My Spirit. This will be true in the small or seemingly insignificant things of life as well as the things that could bring broad, sweeping changes. Your part is to go with the flow keeping your focus on Me, says the Lord, as you maintain complete trust and faith in Me alone. I want you to be like clay, malleable and willing to yield to the pressure of My hand through your circumstances, for there are things that still need to be reworked, shaped, and transformed into My image as you progress.

Jeremiah 18:2 -6 “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make. Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the LORD. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!

Rise Up In Battle, My Beloved, For Victory Is Assured

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 1/17/11:

Rise up in to battle, My beloved, for victory is assured.  It has been declared that My word will not return void.  I have given you power to defeat the enemy of your soul, the one who accuses you, taunts you, and lies to you.  He will be defeated, so take hold.  But do more than that; rise up and ride on the wind of My Spirit and ride upon the power of My word.  Rise up and allow the victory that is about to unfold, to become yours by faith.  Call forth those things which you cannot yet see.  Do so by faith and declare the victory for surely it shall come unto you, says the Lord Most High.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/17/11:

Even though your life seems to be transitional, begin to think of the steps you take as foundational. Don’t think that your thoughts, words, and actions are unimportant. What you do now will actually frame and give meaning to your future. Give thought and consider carefully what is happening in you and around you and respond according to the leading of My Spirit, says the Lord.

Deuteronomy 11:24a Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours.

Draw Near!

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/11/11:

It’s time for a change in many areas and on various levels. Some things have just outlived their usefulness or are outdated and do not serve your needs as efficiently as they once did. Things in the natural or outward things are only signs of an inward or spiritual change that is taking place as you draw closer to Me, says the Lord. The closer you get the greater your discernment and power in prayer and warfare. Draw near!

James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s alarm at 3:10 AM.  One may have decided to get more rest.  The alarm may have gone off five minutes later.  One may have selected the snooze option on one’s phone.  After an additional five minutes may have passed, both the 3:00 AM and 3:20 AM alarm may have gone off simultaneously.  One may have gotten up.

One may have logged onto one’s computer and may have checked for the Spirit Of Prophecy Bulletin.  It may not have been there.  One may have checked Bill and Marsha Burns’ website as well.  The website may not have been updated.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:31 AM.  One may have been late.  One may have been looking at the time on one’s computer while thinking that the time may have been a few minutes ahead of the actual time.  One may have forgotten that one may have reset the time on one’s computer recently to reflect the true time.

One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, including being late for one’s prayer time and for being angry about being late.  The Lord may have revealed through an Christian author that when we are on time for appointments we may receive blessings from the Lord.  The angels may wait until the last minute of the appointed time.  When one may be  late, those blessings may be withheld and can never be attained for that particular day.  This is why one may be discouraged when on may be late for one’s special time with Jesus.

While in one’s prayer closet one may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Ezekiel 16.  Thank You Jesus!

The Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may have been in one’s e-mail inbox when one may have finished one’s prayer time with the Lord.  One may have read the message from the Lord for today.  One may have wondered if the first thing that may have come to one’s mind may have been the Lord’s answer for one concerning today’s message.  One may have prayed and asked the Lord to help one with this.  Thank You Jesus for Your help and encouragement.

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.
