Receive The Revelation Of This Hour

It’s All About Jesus!

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 2/14/11:

So come and arise My children and let your light shine. Receive the revelation of this hour. Arise to your place within the kingdom, where your understanding is nourished by My presence. When I bring the revelation of the times and the seasons in which you live, it is not only to give you life but it is to prepare the path that is before you that you may walk on this path with great joy. You know that when I establish a path before you that I will direct you to where your destiny is fulfilled. Do not worry about what is behind you for I am your rear guard. I have not only protected that which is before you but I have protected that which is behind you. You will come to a position of clarity and revelation and the understanding that I am indeed with you preparing the way that leads into the glory of the kingdom. I am calling unto you today to make your way nearer and closer to Me than you have ever been before, says the Lord.

In a vision I saw a valley begin to fill up with people. At first I thought they were warriors, but then I saw that they were worshipers. And, I heard some of them tuning their instruments. And, I hear the Lord saying that He has called those who are in the Valley of Baca (the place of weeping) to worship their way to victory.

Psalms 84:6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a spring; the rain also covers it with pools.

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 Isaiah 65.  Thank You Jesus!

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.

Deliverance And Blessings

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/18/11:

In a vision I saw the women of ancient Israel keeping watch as they waited expectantly for their warriors to come home. They were not worried that their men would not return victorious. Instead, they were excited about receiving the spoils of war. Then, over the rise the horsemen came into view. They weren’t running home as victims; they we’re marching home with dignity, their standard held high. They had engaged the enemy, the battle was arduous, but the victory was sweet. I asked the Lord about the vision, and He showed me that the warriors represent the spirit, and the women represent the soul or flesh. When we engage in spiritual warfare, we never have to fear losing the battle, and our soul should wait expectantly for the spoils of war — deliverance and blessing.

Psalm 42:5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.

One may have awakened this morning and may have checked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin in one’s e-mail inbox.  It may not have been there.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet late due to one becoming distracted.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.  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 John 13.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests this evening.  Thank You Lord for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin later this morning.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

Warrior’s Rendezvous (aka White Warriors)

It’s All About Jesus!

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 25, 2010:

WARRIOR’S RENDEZVOUS (aka White Warriors):

In a dream I was with seven other people who went to a rendezvous for warriors.   We prepared by wearing white shirts and pants, and I wrote a song that was four pages long.  It was a good song!  We got to the rendezvous site and sat at a table waiting for the other people/warriors to arrive.  As we were waiting, I was looking at a snow-covered mountain and thought at first the snow was moving.  But, as I focused this movement was not the snow, and it was coming towards us very quickly.  Suddenly, it was upon us, and we could see that these were the warriors we were waiting for.  They all had snow-white hair, white faces, white gloves, clothing and shoes.  Even their weapons were white.  They were in top physical shape, and were mentally sharp and ready to confront the enemy and gain the victory posthaste.  We looked up at them from our seated and slouched position and were in awe.  They looked at us and smiled like we would smile at children who were playing war.  They were seasoned and ready warriors and in comparison we were only playing war.

When I awoke I thought this must be how warring angels must view us.  They with their precision weapons, mighty warriors dressed for battle, fast and fit, and us without our weapons ready to socialize and sing a song.

I was reminded of this scripture:
Luke 7: 31-32  And the Lord said, “To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like?  They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying: ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we mourned to you, and you did not weep.'”

We need to become different warriors than we have been.  But, what does that mean?  We have to look at the symbols to gain understanding.

There were 8 of us and 8 of them.
The Hebrew number eight is Sh’moneh from the root Shah’meyn:  to make fat, to super-abound, superabundant.  One who abounds in strength.  Eight is the number of new beginnings or the beginning of a new series. And 8 is associated with resurrection life and regeneration, the beginning of a new era or order.

So, we are entering a time of a new era, a new order of the Warrior.

Rendezvous means a place appointed for assembling or meeting, process of bringing together. The rendezvous of the mountain men was for the purpose of trading and equipping – weapons and provision.   During the course of the rendezvous they would engage in various competitions, comparing their skills.

Equipped and Dressed For Battle:
  Ephesians 6: 
10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
11  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
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.
14  Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace
; 16  above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
18  praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints–

2 Timothy 3:16-17  All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,  that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

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.

This is what will cause us to be fit and ready-to walk and fight in the Spirit and not in the flesh.

In the Warriors Rendezvous, it was immediately evident that we were outgunned.  The white warriors were, by comparison, far superior to us.  But, just seeing them in action provided us with understanding and instruction.

Our predecessors came from the mountain — snow- covered high country.  
They had been warring in the high places, in the realm of the spirit – not in the flesh.
They were completely camouflaged – not detected or vulnerable.
Their camouflage was white – righteousness.
They were dressed for battle.
Their weapons were advanced and powerful.
They were confident, fierce, victorious.

I believe the rendezvous took place on the New Plateau, which represents a higher level of warfare.  We have to scout out this new territory using our discernment or discerning of spirits so that we know the enemy and where to find him.

2 Corinthians 2:9-11  For to this end I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things.  Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ,  lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.

I heard in the realm of the spirit a sound that reminded me of a clock, and I saw a pendulum moving back and forth marking time.  And I felt a sense of urgency with the thought that time is marching on and time is short.  In a vision I saw a perfect white horse, excited, pawing the air, ready to go.  Then, I saw warriors worshiping the night before battle.  Then, they arose and were being dressed in pure white battle attire and girded with swords.  The warriors came together, resolute, one army of the Lord.  I saw them silent, listening, watching, waiting — awesome, righteous, strong, focused, prepared for battle.  Then, the vision changed and I saw a pure-bred black Arabian horse, and again saw warriors the night before a battle, but these were celebrating, drunk, being entertained by belly dancers, and I believed that these warriors represented the powers of darkness, Satan’s army.

And, I was reminded of this scripture:  1 Kings 20:11 So the king of Israel answered and said, “Tell him, ‘Let not the one who puts on his armor boast like the one who takes it off.'”  Satan is destined for defeat!

Joel 2:
1  Blow the trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; For the day of the LORD is coming, For it is at hand:
2  A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, The like of whom has never been; Nor will there ever be any such after them, Even for many successive generations.
3  A fire devours before them, And behind them a flame burns; The land is like the Garden of Eden before them, And behind them a desolate wilderness; Surely nothing shall escape them.
4  Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; And like swift steeds, so they run.
5  With a noise like chariots Over mountaintops they leap, Like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble, Like a strong people set in battle array.
6  Before them the people writhe in pain; All faces are drained of color.
7  They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like men of war; Every one marches in formation, And they do not break ranks.
8  They do not push one another; Every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, They are not cut down.

We are going to become the White Warriors by the power of the Holy Spirit!

The Lord Says:   When you do not feel up to the task remember who you are in Me.  I will give you the grace to meet and overcome every challenge and gain the victory.  Simply trust and obey.

Observe.  Do you see that you have come up?  Your spiritual atmosphere is quite different than it was eight months ago.  Rejoice in the new life and new opportunities that challenge you to spiritual maturity.  The temptation now will be to go back to an old place of easy, lazy comfort.

See beyond the mundane and ordinary routine of every day existence to see the exceptional work that I am performing.  You are a catalyst in a rich and dynamic move of My Spirit.  Look beyond the natural to realize your potential.

You have been in a period of transition, which is not over yet.  It has been and will continue to be very unsettling for a while, but your best use of this time is to grow up spiritually, exercise your faith, and trust that I will bring you through.  Then, your feeling of impotence will give way to My power and dominion.

1 Peter 5:10   But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

Even when your life appears to be static, in reality you have been on a steep learning curve.  Take a quick glance back to see yourself in this process of exponential spiritual growth.

So, the new plateau isn’t what you expected?  Out of your comfort zone?  This level of discomfort will be the impetus that will move you into defining moments that will stabilize you in your kingdom position and destiny.  Do not despise the day of small beginnings.

I am bringing you to a place of stability and maturity by imparting wisdom that will direct your steps and establish your heart in My kingdom.  You will go from strength to strength as you use the victory of past challenges as stepping stones for advancement. You have entered a time of historic proportions and significance.  What you do with the choices that present themselves to you will yield extraordinary fruit and consequences.  Choose wisely.

One may have awakened this morning to the sound of the alarm.  One may have turned it off and then thought to reset it for 3:20 AM.  One may have gotten up briefly with the intent of going back to sleep for a quick snooze.

One may have looked at the time and it may have been close to 3:30 AM.  One may have done it again.  One had mysteriously set one’s 3:00 AM alarm for 3:20 AM.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet without reading the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  This may be unusual; the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may drive one’s prayer closet time.

One may have begun to praise the Lord with song.  Afterwards, one may have opened the door and one’s cat may have come into one’s prayer closet.  One’s cat may have looked a little thinner to one.  One may have wondered if the animal may have been sick.

One may have left one’s prayer closet briefly to get items that one may have needed.  One may have gone into the kitchen.  One may have seen that the cat bowl was full with cat food.  One thought it odd.  Usually the cat or dog will devour the food.  It may have been there at least a day or more.

One may have decided to get a few pebbles of cat food to test to see if the food in the bowl was contaminated with something or if the cat may have been sick.  One may have put the food on the floor and the cat may have eaten it up immediately.

One may have grabbed the bowl of food and tossed it.  One may have washed the cat’s bowl out and put in fresh food.  The cat may have begun to eat it immediately.  Thank you Jesus for leading and guiding one through this, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

One may have logged onto one’s computer to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin. One may have noticed a message in one’s inbox.  One may have been deeply disturbed by the individual’s tone.  One may have seen anger and unforgiveness, issues and more.  One may have been deeply troubled at the wording so much that one could hardly read through the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin or pray to the Lord once back inside one’s prayer closet.

The individual’s tone may have consumed one’s thoughts.  One may have asked the Lord to give one what to say.  One may have wanted to confront the individual’s heart.

One may know better from past experience that one may not have any power to make an individual see the error of their ways.  It may come from the Holy Spirit to convict the individual’s heart.  One may know that if one may embark on the endeavor alone without Jesus leading and guiding one, one’s actions and words may be in vain and the results may be disastrous.

One may have prayed to the Lord to give one guidance.  To help one answer the individual with whatever He may have wanted one to say.  The Lord may have put in one’s heart to say as few words as possible.

One may have felt the enemies tugging to confront the individual.  One may have been obedient to the Lord and may have answered the individual with very few words and may not have addressed the individual’s heart.

One may have prayed for the individual in one’s prayer closet.  Thank You Jesus for leading and guiding one through this.

One may have left one’s prayer closet without finishing one’s confessions.  One may have been in there for quite some time and may not have gotten far due to one’s preoccupation about the individual and their heart.  One may have given the issue to Jesus and let it go.

One may have finished confessing one’s sins while lying down.  One may have been so tired and may have been dozing off towards the end of one’s confessions.  One may have asked the Lord if one could pray for outstanding prayer requests later this morning.

Throughout the day, one may have seen sin creeping back into one’s life.  One may understand that it’s important to pray for the outstanding prayer requests right after one’s prayer time, confessions and forgiveness of one’s sins by the Lord.  This may ensure that the prayers are answered and not hindered by sin in one’s life.

Now one may have felt unworthy to pray for individuals due to a need to confess one’s sins again. One may have confessed tonight but may have been too tired to pray.  One may have set one’s alarm so that one could pray for the outstanding prayer requests and then post one’s blog.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture and may have been led to Matthew 28.  Thank You Jesus!

One may be writing this blog and the prayer requests may not be done.  One may understand that praying may be spiritual warfare.  Satan hands may be removed off of peoples’ circumstances due to prayers.  Thank You Jesus!  Please Lord Jesus, forgive one for not praying for the people, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.  One may pray for the individuals after the posting of this blog.

One may have to confess briefly again before entering into battle for the individuals.  Thank You Lord Jesus for answering these prayer requests according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
