SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

I am shining a light on things hidden in darkness.  I speak not only of strategies and weapons formed against you from the realm of darkness, but also revelation of My kingdom that has been obscured until now.  There are things that have been unclear to you that will suddenly be understandable.  The sword of the Word will become holy wisdom that will produce effective action through faith, says the Lord.  This is a time of clarity. 

 Luke 8:17  For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.

Now comes the season of the prophesied blessing.  This blessing shall come upon you because you have been determined to go through.  You have gone forth in battle array and you have fought the good fight of faith.  You have demonstrated a remarkable perseverance in this last season.  You have held fast to My word.  You have used the weapons that I have given you.  You have, indeed, fought the good fight of faith.  And, for this reason I now come to bless you.  You are about to enter into the season of great blessing that will extend beyond your wildest dreams and the imaginations of your heart.  For, I come to bring My bride in the fullness of her treasure.  These are the days of the demonstration of My kingdom, and I will demonstrate the kingdom through you.   You have believed and therefore you shall receive, says the Lord God Most Holy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Watch and be amazed at the expansion of your spiritual awareness and experience.  The realm of the spirit is being opened to you in ways you could not have imagined until now.  Prepare yourself to move into this wide, open expanse by dealing quickly with worldly issues and concerns.  Set yourself to seek greater revelation of My kingdom, says the Lord. 

Acts 26:16  But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, refuse to listen to the useless chatter of the enemy when he tries to convince you that you are flawed or worthless.  I have not and do not condemn you.  You are My special treasure, chosen for My own purposes.  Satan is against you because he is against Me, says the Lord, and these lies are weapons formed against you.  Do not believe them. 

Psalms 139:14  I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

I will continue to show you by example and through your circumstances the weapons that have been formed against you. But, I will also make it very clear to you the weapons that I have given you to use to gain the victory in every situation. The enemy has power, but you must not be afraid. I have given you the power to overcome all the works of darkness. Exercise your authority, says the Lord.

Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

For I Have Called You To Be Kings And Priests, A Holy Nation

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — July 26, 2010:

Come higher and go deeper.  Come with all haste.  For I will reveal to you the revelation of things that will set you free.  This revelation will define your nature and your character, and it will let you know who you are in Me and who I am in you.  You are a pillar in My glorious church.  Will I not bless My church; will I not cleanse My church; will I not speak to My church? Remember who you are this day, says the Lord, for I have called you to be kings and priests, a holy nation.  To those who answer the call and open the door I will come in and position Myself to speak with you and open the eyes of your vision so you may see, know and understand those things that are coming in this season.  For I say, the time is indeed short.  Awaken yourself as one who has awakened out of a deep sleep.  I know you; you are not hidden from Me.  I know you very well.  In fact, I know you better than you know yourself.  So arise, come into the light.  Arise, come into the glory.  Arise, and allow My anointing to break forth into your spirit for surely it will be the revealer of those things hidden.  Turn from discouragement, condemnation, fear, and those things the enemy is bringing against you.  Turn, I say, and  establish yourself this day on a turning point; a point in which you turn to Me with a full heart, with full assurance, with full faith that I will do My work in you.  I will complete the work I have begun in you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — July 26, 2010:

I saw people changing their position. And, I thought of Joel chapter 2 with everyone marching in formation. And, I heard the Lord say that this repositioning will bring about Kingdom victory.

Joel 2:7 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.

One may have awakened on one’s own this morning.  One may not have heard any alarms and may have overslept.  One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer at 4:50 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 Ezekiel 40.  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.
