Arise My People, For This Is Your Finest Hour

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

Arise, My people, for indeed this is your finest hour. This is not just a cliché; it is a spiritual truth. For, I intend to bring forth a glorious church. And, it shall be done. So, I say to you, arise. Shake off the defilement of discouragement. Fight the good fight of faith against the power of heaviness. Indeed, you will prevail for I am with you. I am with you to strengthen you and to carry you through the ordeals of this life. I will walk with you through the fire and on the water. I will be with you when the wind carries you into the fullness of My purposes. Get up and lift the hands that hang down in weakness. Strengthen the feebleness of your walk. Those that come with Me and lean upon My strength and My power shall have the victory. I am delivering you from all that hinders you. I’m removing from you the stumbling blocks the enemy has placed in your path. I will make a way for you to come into the fullness of your destiny. For, it has been determined in the heavenly council and shall be performed by My Spirit, says the Lord.

Refuse to allow disappointment or discouragement to undermine your faith. You must keep your faith strong if you are to receive what I have promised, says the Lord. Unbelief is your enemy.

Romans 4:20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.

I Am Here To Lead, Guide, And Bless You With All Goodness

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

My beloved, it is indeed a time in which you can grow; even exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that you can imagine. So, I say now, plant your seeds; water them; hold them under the tension of faith, for My word never returns void, but it always brings forth that which was spoken. Enjoy My presence and be filled with the gladness that I have for you. Come to the place where your joy is unspeakable and full of glory. Come into My peace, which passes all understanding. And, remember that I am not only with you; I am for you. I am here to lead, guide, and to bless you with all goodness. Receive!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Refuse to allow fear and intimidation to keep you from moving into the next phase of your gifting and calling. The enemy would have you get stuck in a place of insecurity, but I am calling you to have confidence in Me, says the Lord, to empower you to do all that is necessary. I am your strength and your shield. Psalms 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him.

One may have awakened at 5:50 AM.  One may have missed one’s prayer time due to oversleeping.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.  Thank You Jesus.

I Come To You To Set You Free And To Call You To Forth Into Glory

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 3/1/11:

I am coming to you today as the wind, the water, the fire and as the rain — a habitation of My glory, so that you will flourish in My kingdom and no longer be distraught, condemned or oppressed.  I come to you to set you free and to call you forth into glory.  I am calling you to lay aside all that hinders you and to come by faith to receive that which I am doing.  I am sending you a fresh spiritual atmosphere that brings forth the baptism of My Holy Spirit upon you.  Come with expectation, with joy, peace and faith.  Come and receive.  No longer hold yourself from the water; no longer hide from the wind; no longer disallow the fire.  Come rather and enjoy the fullness of My expression and the fullness of who I am in you.  For, it is written that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit; the Spirit of the living God; the God who transforms you, empowers you, helps you, keeps you in the Way and reveals His kingdom to you.  Come and learn.  Come and live.  Come and walk in My presence this day, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/1/11:

In a mini vision I saw a wind chime.  I believe the wind chime represents us as a body of believers being moved by the Spirit. The shimmering of the wind chime is the effect of the Wind on all the parts of the Body at the same time. And, as the spiritual wind blows, our spirits bear witness to the Holy Spirit and we respond.

John 3:8 “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

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 Jeremiah 52.  Thank You Jesus!

This Is The Fire That I Send Upon You Even As I Did In Days Long Gone By

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 1/04/2011:

Is it not written that in the last days I will pour My spirit out upon all flesh? And, are you not living in the last days and are you not made of flesh? Therefore what hinders you and keeps you from receiving this fresh baptism that I am pouring forth? The fire of My water, the fire of My word, My water and My wind will now come upon My people. I say, you need this — this fresh baptism of My fire that will come and burn out the old, the doubt, the hindered faith, and the sins that keep you from Me. This is the fire that I send upon you even as I did in days long gone by; even as it was on the day of Pentecost when My fire came upon My beloved and upon My church. And, were they not forever changed? Did they not then begin to flow in the power of My kingdom? So I offer this to you, My people, in this season as those who dwell within My kingdom that are hungry; and those who dwell within my kingdom who are seeking and asking and knocking. For it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and over running in this season, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/04/2011:

Put your shoulder to the wheel and do the work that is set before you without grumbling or complaining. Be a good steward of what you have been given and what you have been given to do. Be righteous in your attitudes and motivation, for you are the light of the world. Refuse to allow your light to dim or be put out; let others see Me through you, says the Lord.

Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven

Even Though The Economic Conditions Of This World Are Not Good, You Will Live Within The Confines Of My Blessings

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 12/20/2010:

Come and see in the season that is before you the goodness of the Lord in the land of those who are living by faith; who are trusting Me; who choose to walk in Spirit.  I encourage you to allow yourself to be driven by the wind of My Spirit and to be carried by the water of My Spirit.   My blessings will not be withheld in this coming year, which shall be a year of blessing to those who have been faithful.  So, My faithful ones, get ready for the manifestation of multiplied blessings.  Even though the world itself will be in disarray; even though the economic conditions of this world are not good, you will live within the confines of My blessings.  Lift up your heads and let your worship ascend, says the Lord God Almighty.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/27/2010:

You have both heard and seen the opening of My glory statement. I am in charge; not flesh and blood. I Myself will lead you into the next move of My Spirit. It won’t be engineered by your own good ideas or sense of religiosity, nor will it be patterned after any other move. You will not only see My glory, but you will experience My glory in every aspect of your life and being. Yours is only to yield and let Me take you into the realms of glory, says the Lord.

Psalm 24:7-10 Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah

Watch For The Signs, For Breakthrough Is Surely Coming

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/23/2010:

I had a vision of a beaver dam as it slowly began to leak and then the full force of the water pushed through to destroy the dam. And, I heard the Lord say: Watch for the signs, for breakthrough is surely coming. The power of My Spirit will work in you to bring down strongholds that have hindered the flow of your anointing for some time. Rejoice in this great and yet subtle and supernatural work.

Isaiah 45:2-3 I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.

One may have awakened late.  One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song.  One may have gone back to bed.  One may have been so tired.  One may have asked Jesus to forgive one.

While in bed one may have attempted to confess one’s sins and may have fallen asleep.

The dog may have awakened one a little later; it may have wanted to go outside.  One may have taken the dog out.  While outdoors, one may have begun to confess one’s sins.

Once back inside one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord, thank You for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

This evening one may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today and may have been led to 1 Chronicles 11.  Thank You Jesus!

Drink Of The Waters Of Life

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — Nov. 1, 2010:

Flow river flow.  For I say come forth and drink deeply of the waters I am bringing forth.  For My water brings life and life in abundance.  And where the river flows the glory of God goes and comes forth in manifestation.  The purity of life and that which you desire comes from the river, the flowing of My Spirit; it comes from the glory of My presence.  And this day I am calling unto you to come and drink freely.  For is it not written that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, which temple I indwell?  So allow this water even according to the pattern of the scriptures to flow out and over the threshold of this temple, says the Lord.  And, the water will go forth and touch the nations; the water will be healing to those who drink.  The water of the Spirit that I have prophesied to you shall go forth in these last days in a greater measure than ever it has gone before.  For out of your innermost being will flow rivers of the glory of My water, the glory of My anointing and the glory of My kingdom, says the Most Holy.  Drink freely and then allow this water to go forth and allow it manifest and bring the presence of My  kingdom into manifestation.  Allow it to bring forth the seeds of the harvest; those things which you have planned.  Allow it to nurture you.  And allow it to bring forth a complete and glorious being for such beings you are.  Drink freely of that which I am providing.  Drink of the waters of life.  Run river run.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 1, 2010:

I had a vision of rain drops coming down except it wasn’t water; it was drops of golden oil. And the Lord said: I am pouring out a fresh anointing on you, My people. It will be anointing for the next level of spiritual experience. Let the oil flow and receive all that I am pouring out.

Isaiah 10:27 It shall come to pass in that day That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.

One may have awakened to the sound of the 3:20 AM alarm.  One may have remained in bed for a few minutes ore.  One may have gotten up eventually and may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have seen that the message may have been lengthy and one may have had only a few minutes to spare.

One may have gotten through the first half of the prophecy.  One may have decided to head for one’s prayer closet after reading the word, “run.”  It may have been 3:29 AM.  One may have grabbed a few things.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  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 Psalms 77.  Thank You Jesus!

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

Come Higher And Allow My Living Water To Bring Your To The Places That I Have Prepared For You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — August 10, 2010:

I hear the sound of a mighty rushing wind.  It is the Spirit of the Lord that comes now to reactivate the Church and to come upon the Church even as He did in the days of Pentecost, as He did in the days long past.  For many in My Church have grown dull and many of them hear no more, but I am bringing the wind of My Spirit upon them.  The power of it will bring them to life in a new and fresh way, so the living rivers in them will begin to move once again.  For these are the days, My people, of the prophetic word when the eagles must spread their wings and fly. Come higher and allow My living water to bring you to the places that I have prepared for you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 10, 2010:

Beloved, I am releasing special blessings in this season. You have cast your bread upon the water, and it is returning to you. You have sown seeds that have taken root and are now bearing fruit, for you are about to reap a harvest from the good seed that you have sown, says the Lord. Rejoice.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.

The Beginning Of Breakthrough

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — April 23, 2010:

I saw in a vision a thick, dirt dam with water beginning to seep through it. The middle section in particular was becoming soaked. Then, I saw a trickle of water that had made its way through the embankment. And, I heard the Lord say that this was a sign of the beginning of breakthrough. The water, representing the Spirit, is at work to break through areas of hindrance and bondage in our lives. Soon, the dam will burst, allowing the water of life to flow freely and in great abundance. We are to allow ourselves to be saturated with the Holy Spirit.

John 4:13 -14 Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

One may have awakened and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet and then left briefly to give the cat some water to drink.  One may have started one’s prayer closet time at 3:31 AM.  One may have been late.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

Walk Upon The Path I Have Prepared For You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — March 8, 2010:

Come with Me on this journey into the unknown. Come with Me and depend upon Me as your guide. Come with Me and let My Spirit empower you. As you go test the spirits; lean not upon your own understanding but lean upon My wisdom; eat of the food I will give you; drink of the water I will give you. Recognize the enemy is after you, but also remember that I will lead you into victory. For it is My purpose and My choice and it is by My power and authority that you will stand in these perilous times. Most of all, I say, do not dread the journey but rather come to this understanding that if I am walking with you and if I have become your guide, this journey will be one of utmost joy. Get ready to move to higher ground. Get ready to walk upon the path I have prepared for you. For indeed these are the days of My glory and the fulfilling of all things. These are the days of the restoration of that which has been lost among My people. I am the Lord God and I come to take you to places you have not yet been; to places you have not yet experienced. I come to give you visions and prophetic words, words of wisdom and words of knowledge that you have not yet spoken. So, I say again, come and come with joy, says the Lord.

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

You may think that the current spiritual environment is strange, but I am testing you and trusting you with My silence, says the Lord. This is to see whether or not you will stay with the leading of My Spirit. Will you be still when there is only silence, or will you continue on without divine direction? Take this opportunity to be still and be at peace even when the enemy is taunting you about being unproductive. Be resolute and do nothing until you truly hear My voice.

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 awakened late.  It may have been 4:14 AM when one looked at the clock.  One may not have heard the alarms go off.  One may have been extremely tired.  One’s grandson may have repeatedly awakened one out of one’s sleep.

One may have gotten up and entered one’s prayer closet at 4:38 AM.  One may have sung praises to the Lord.  One may have remembered that one had not checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One left one’s prayer closet briefly.  One may have been encouraged by the Spirit of Prophecy messages.  Thank you Jesus.

One confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Psalms 102.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request, amen.
