Relationship With Me Is Not A Distant Reality, But It Is Here And Now

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns–01/13/12:

Be yourself! Be who you are without considering things external. Be free in your heart where you are essentially connected to Me; not religiously, but in reality. To do this, you must stay in the present moment of spiritual truth and vitality. This is a place of abiding in faith and peace. Then, when that connection is interrupted, you can examine the cause and reposition yourself to maintain that spiritual flow, says the Lord. Refuse to allow fear, unbelief, worry or condemnation to break your connection. Relationship with Me is not a distant reality, but it is here and now.

John 15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

Cooperate With The Work That I Am Doing In You To Bring You Into A Spiritual Place Of Greater Unity With Me

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 10/7/11:

Cooperate with the work that I am doing in you to bring you into a spiritual place of greater unity with Me, says the Lord. Make a covenant with your mouth to only speak the truth of My Word in faith. Refuse the temptation to speak from a heart of unbelief or despair. Do not allow bitterness to defile yourself and others, but rather rise up in hope. And, trust that regardless of how bleak your circumstances seem at any given moment they will work together for your ultimate good.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Believe My Word, Exercise Your Faith, And Receive

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 4/1/11:

Do you hear My call for you to come up to a place of greater faith? Listen and hear the cry of My Spirit, says the Lord. You live in perilous times and you are bombarded by negative reports and statements of unbelief that have the ability to undermine your faith. But, I tell you the truth that all things are possible with Me if you will only ask in prayer and believe. This is not a time to base your faith on human wisdom and carnal understanding. Believe My Word, exercise your faith, and receive.

James 1:6-8 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Addendum: 04/03/2011

The Holy Spirit may have brought this passage of scripture for this day back to one’s remembrance this morning, Esther 7 – Esther identifies Haman as her enemy.  One may have thought that one may have forgotten to post this blog on Friday.  One may have been glad to see that one may have.  One may have forgotten to post this blog to one’s Facebook page.  Oops!  Please forgive one Jesus. : -)

In The Pattern Of My Word I Have Shown You The Way

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 3/14/11:

In the pattern of My word I have shown you the way. My call to you will be to come and walk upon the River of God where it is full to over flowing. And wherever the river goes it will bring life. Wherever you go, with the flow of that river, you will experience the fullness of My kingdom in manifestation upon the face of My creation. So come. Let Me take you deeper. Come on; don’t stay where you are. I’m giving you opportunity to be more than you’ve ever been before, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/14/11:

Examine yourself to see if you are in faith. Confront fear and unbelief and overcome, for you are My people of faith. And if not you, who? Rise up and demonstrate My kingdom. Be who you are in Me, says the Lord, and do not be afraid. Stir yourself up in your most holy faith, and let My Spirit have His way.

Jude 1:20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.

Refuse To Waver Through Fear And Unbelief

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/17/2010:

Maintain strong faith, and keep moving forward taking one step at a time in the strength and power of My guidance. I will not lead you astray, but like an arrow shot from a bronze bow you will hit the mark and achieve the goal. Refuse to waver through fear and unbelief. Trust Me in all things, says the Lord, for I will direct your steps on a straight and narrow path.

Isaiah 42:16 I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.

Your Victory Will Come Through Faith And Trust

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 8, 2010:

Take time to establish yourself in the truth of My Word, and do not allow the lies of the enemy to obscure My character, nature and will for you. I am for you and not against you, and I will bring you forth in strength if you will trust Me, says the Lord. Defeat comes to you by way of fear and unbelief. Your victory will come through faith and trust. You will either choose defeat or victory depending on what you believe.

1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.

One may have awakened on one’s own this morning.  One may have used the time that one may have had to spare, wisely.

Lay Down The Old & Pick Up The New & Journey With Me Into The Glory Of My Kingdom

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — April 19, 2010:

So today, My children, I would have you to take off the robes that have collected the defilement of this world; unbelief and victimization. This old cloak that you wear carries the defilement of those things that have come upon you and come against you. But, I say, take that robe off even as the beggar and the blind man of old did, lay it down, and receive new clothing this day. Begin again and dress yourself in righteousness, peace, joy and faith. For the journey begins, the journey that I have determined to bring you forth into the blessing and into the promise and into the fullness of your inheritance. Lay down the old and pick up the new and journey with Me into the Glory of My kingdom, says the Lord Most High.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — April 19 2010:

I have been able to see a glory cloud in the church sanctuary for three weeks in a row. The first week, I saw hundreds of lights in the cloud. The second week, I saw the lights moving. This week, I saw the lights positioning themselves into straight rows, and I thought of them coming into a particular order. I believe God is bringing us into position–into His order so that we can see the manifestation of His glory.

Isaiah 4:5 then the LORD will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering.

For Your Body Is The Temple Of The Holy Spirit And Unbelief Should Not Be Found In Your House

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — February 8, 2010:

It is important in this season, My children, that you believe; that you come to a place of faith in My word and in My promises, and that you put all unbelief out.  For your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and unbelief should not be found in your house.  Your house belongs to Me, and I bring the power of faith to bear in your life.  Therefore, I say again, defeat all unbelief.  Make it your life’s work in this season that you will not allow it to question My word or to overshadow and steal My promises.  I say believe, for all things are possible to the one who believes.  All things may be received by the one who believes.  Be that one in this season; one with Me.   And, may it be said in your heart that I no longer live by the measurement of my own faith, but I now live by the faith of the Son of God, who has given Himself for me.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 8, 2010:

Now is the time when you can realize breakthrough and move forward in My purposes, for I am causing you to deal with your own heart and rise above the flesh into the Spirit where liberty abounds. Release yourself from everything — every thought, every emotion and every decision that has been in opposition to My name, says the Lord. Then, you will find the bondages broken and the chains of restriction removed so that you can flee from the prison of your own making.

Psalms 107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their chains in pieces.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged.  There may be things going on in one’s life that may require one to demonstrate extreme faith.  For only Jesus may be one’s present help.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet and praised the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Ezra 3.  Thank you Jesus.

I Am Your Purpose!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 4, 2010:

Your level of obedience to My Word and your faith in My promises will be tested. Disobedience and unbelief will be revealed in the fires of testing, and you will have opportunities to make corrections as necessary. Do not be afraid, for this is part of the cleansing process that will produce the power of My presence. Without the fires of purification, you will not realize the power.

This is a time of renovation and restoration and of coming into complete order in every area of your life. Order will be the result of allowing divine wisdom to direct your steps on every level and in every situation and circumstance. Seek Me continually, and trust Me perpetually.

You have experienced an upheaval and a shaking, and your foundation has been laid bare. Now, you can begin to be established and settled on a new level of understanding and stability. Stay in the flow of My Spirit, and you will regain confidence that I am doing a good work in you and will bring it to perfection. The worst is over, but it’s not over.

The enemy has tried to isolate you and instill a sense of lonely desolation, but he is a liar. I am going to override this attack against you and give you a sense of connection. You will again know innately that you are a vital part of the whole. And, your fear of living without purpose will be a thing of the past. I am your purpose!

That feeling of being stagnant is going to be displaced as you yield to a subtle stirring in your innermost being. This stirring will make you feel unsettled and will create a desire to move, to progress, that cannot be denied. You can no longer live with feeling stifled, stale, and bored. It is My will that you break forth out of deadness; let Me lead you in newness of life and restore to you a sense of kingdom adventure.

Watch as I open doors of opportunity for you to shine in dark places. You don’t like the darkness, but it still exists and grows more and more desolate. You are My light, and this darkness will not overtake you, but will be revealed for what it is by the light that is in you. Keep the lamp of the Spirit burning brightly within, and let your light shine!

The things that you have been required to lay aside for a season will begin to re-emerge, and even though they appear to be exactly the same, you will soon realize that this emergence is actually the manifestation of new growth. What you laid down had to go through a spiritual metamorphosis, and will come forth as born from above – changed in substance and nature. This is a resurrection of sorts, a seed sown in the flesh, dead, buried, and resurrected in the power of the Spirit. Rejoice!

The days ahead are pregnant with the hope of My glory and are ready to bring forth, says the Lord.

One may have awakened to one’s alarm only to reset it.  One may have gotten up at the sound of the second alarm at 3:20 AM.  One may have had difficulty getting up this morning and even considered not going into one’s prayer closet today.  One may have been feeling really discouraged.  One may have gotten up reluctantly.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have thought, “Wow!”  The message for today may have encouraged one.

One may have been feeling disjointed and distracted by non-essential things.  One may have work to do and yet, one may waste a lot of time throughout the day only to end up digging a deeper hole for oneself.

Once inside one’s prayer closet, one may have felt joyful, uplifted and wondered why one had ever thought and felt the way one had before getting up.  One wondered if it was the voice of the enemy.  One may have really believed the thoughts.  They were quite ridiculous now that one may think about it and full of unbelief.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.  One may have asked the Lord for the scripture for the day and one’s eyes may have fallen on Matthew 26:14.  One may read the entire chapter of Matthew 26.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for the outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for hearing and answering one’s prayer for the sick and for each prayer request one may have prayed for, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
