THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 2/28/11:
Your natural eyes will deceive you because things are not always as they seem. Things are not always as you see them. Things are and do exist in My spiritual realm, and those are the things that are true. I would have you see beyond the things of the world, so that you no longer look through natural eyes, but look through the eyes of faith. Begin to overcome those things that are set against you by the power of your faith. Your faith will sustain you in these days; it will keep you and be the avenue by which you receive your provision, says the Most High.

To those who are hungry, whose hearts desire to know Me more intimately, you are about to experience an exponential spiritual growth spurt. It will be a swift work as I draw you closer to Me and open your eyes to see with clarity. I will reveal the mysteries that you have longed to understand. Seek Me with all of your heart, says the Lord.
Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently will find me.

The recent spiritual attack sent you reeling and caused you to feel off balance and unsteady. But, I say to you, that you will gain the victory over the enemy and I will bring restoration, healing and renewal to your body, soul and spirit. Allow these circumstances to strengthen rather than weaken your faith. These are perilous times, but when your trust is only in Me, says the Lord, you are unshakeable.
Psalm 107:23-30 Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business on great waters, they see the works of the LORD, and His wonders in the deep. For He commands and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of the sea. They mount up to the heavens, they go down again to the depths; their soul melts because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven.

My children, be diligent to do what I have called you to do. But know this, the enemy will come to bring insecurity and cause you to get self-focused. He will undermine your confidence and boldness in what I have set before you. Do not look at yourselves or consider whether you have succeeded or failed. The responsibility for success or failure is not yours but Mine. Yours is not to calculate the impact of your efforts, but to only pledge allegiance to Me and allow Me to direct your every step, says the Lord.
Psalms 18:35 You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great.

I keep hearing the word “confluence” in my spirit, and I asked the Lord what He was trying to tell me. He said, “I want My people to flow together in such unity that I am all there is. My desire is for My purpose to become your purpose and that you will yield to the flow of My Spirit, which will move you to fulfill your destiny in My kingdom. I want you to understand the mighty call on your life to let Me be your all in all.”
Philippians 2:2 Fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Note: The definition of confluence: coming or flowing together, meeting, gathering at one point.

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.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 2/21/11:
Come My people and hide yourselves even for a moment, from time to time, that I may refresh and renew you. For in this hidden place of the heart you shall be renewed and refreshed. In the hidden place of your inner room I shall come and we shall have sweet communion together. And out of this communion shall come the blessing of the kingdom. I will teach you how to walk in the Spirit; how to know the voice of the Spirit; how to perceive the signs of the Spirit. Out of this place My glory shall flow, even as a river, says the Most High. So come. Come and enjoy; partake and be one with Me, says the Almighty. For judgement comes upon the world in these days, even as you have been able to see. But you have only seen the tip of the ice berg. But you, My beloved, will find yourselves hidden from even the worst turmoil and greatest attack of the enemy. Come this day and make My place a place of safety, provision and protection, says the Lord God.

I am your problem solver, says the Lord. Bring your problems and questions to Me, and I will show you the way of resolution and direct your steps. Your part is to trust Me and refuse to be afraid or doubt My willingness or ability to bring you through every dilemma. Nurture your faith.
Proverbs 16:9 A man’s heart plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/18/11:
Let your prayer of faith come up before My face. Pray as I lead you and not according to the desires of your flesh and it will be a sweet aroma, which pleases Me, says the Lord. I hear and answer your prayers as you seek to walk in righteousness and purity. Come to Me with sincerity of heart and thanksgiving.
James 5:16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

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.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/16/11:
I am shining a light on the parts of your life that still need complete sanctification and victory. These are the areas that cause you the most trouble and keep you from breakthrough. Be sensitive to the work of My Spirit to bring conviction and correction, for this is a holy work and worthy of your undivided attention. This is a good work that will bring spiritual wholeness and stability. If you will yield in total submission, you will be delighted with the outcome, says the Lord.
Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/15/11:
For those who are willing to let go of past disappointments and offenses, this is a new day in which you can rediscover the power of My grace. Launch out into the depth of My love and be filled with the wonder of My work of sanctification in you. You have been in a time of preparation and are about to be released into a time of spiritual discovery and adventure that will bring restoration and renewal. You are about to be rejuvenated in ways you could not have anticipated, says the Lord. Rejoice!
Psalms 51:12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
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.

Beloved, separate yourself from everything that instills fear and brings confusion. Refuse to allow anything to undermine your peace and stability in Me. If you will do this, you will be able to see clearly the attack of the enemy against you, which will then position you to resist him while you maintain spiritual integrity. I will give you this insight if you will set your heart to see, says the Lord.
1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/10/11:
You will need to step back from the things that trouble you in order to see more clearly and to perceive My work in the midst of all that is happening in and around you. This has to be a deliberate decision on your part if you are to gain a broader perspective. Keep in mind that this too shall pass. Time and chance will not allow you to stop the progression of life, says the Lord.
Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned and saw under the sun that-the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.

This is a time when decisive action will be required if you are to make any progress. Your challenges will come in situations where you have been ambiguous. Ask Me for wisdom, direction, and guidance, and I will certainly impart it to you, says the Lord. But, when you sow double-mindedness into your circumstances, you will only reap confusion and uncertainty. Refuse to get stuck in indecision.
James 1:5-8 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 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.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/8/11:
Don’t be afraid to take a break and relax. Your intensity in finding solutions to the problems you face will not even come close to the benefits of quiet rest in My presence and trusting Me to give you the necessary wisdom for breakthrough. This is not a time to tough it out in the strength of your own soul; it is a time to exercise resolute faith in My ability and willingness to bring you through every trial in victory, says the Lord. Only believe!
Psalm 107:28-31 Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven. Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!

Be filled again with My Spirit. The days ahead will be filled with My Glory in the practical and commonplace things of life. Maintain awareness, and see My manifest presence in unexpected ways, says the Lord. Take nothing for granted. My glory is all around you!
Psalms 125:2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds His people from this time forth and forever.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/4/11:
If you will diligently and urgently seek My face with all your heart instead of only looking for me to manifest outwardly, I will release you into a place of freedom and rest. This inward connection is where faith is born; it is the place where prayer is answered. Come and commune with Me in the secret place, which is even hidden from all trouble and stress. Come into My rest, says the Lord, and let Me establish you in peace and joy.
Matthew 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

I saw myself sitting in church, just as I have been doing every Sunday for 25 years. The difference is that I have more wisdom now and less zeal than back then. And, I heard the Lord say, “You’ve come a long way, but you still have a ways to go. And, just like the process from then until now, I will also bring you to a higher place from now until the end. Get ready for My powerful visitation. Glory will come to My people personally before it manifests corporately.” My heart resounded with, “Yes, Lord, let it be unto me according to your will.” If I had it to do over again, I would laugh more, love more, and never EVER be afraid. Amen.
Luke 1:38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

In a vision I saw myself putting on a pair of hiking boots, and I believe the Lord was showing me that we need to prepare to go higher on the narrow path ahead of us. We are making our way up to the spiritual high places where we can have greater discernment, see with clarity and hear with precision. The hike will require our desire for more of Him and our willingness to maintain eternal perspective.
Matthew 7:13-14 Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it

Beloved, I am the Master Carpenter, and I call to you to come to Me for reconstruction. Let Me do a work in you, and I will square you away to be level and plumb, upright and righteous, so that the components of your life all fit together with spiritual precision. Nothing will be out of place or off balance if you will yield to this work and let Me have My way, says the Lord.
Amos 7:7 Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand.
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.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/31/11:
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.
