SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/31/11:
In a vision I saw twelve stars in a circle, which represented to me divine government, and I was also reminded of the twelve stones of Gilgal that symbolizes renewed covenant. Then, I saw what looked like a comet moving rapidly through that circle of stars toward the earth. And, I heard the LORD say that a powerful, supernatural, and life-changing anointing to receive a fresh revelation from heaven has been released. Those who have a pure heart and have maintained their child-like faith and wonder will be able to receive this anointing.
Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 5/30/11:
I say to you, My beloved, that My eyes are searching the land for those who have hearts after Me. And, I am searching for those who are seekers of My presence and of the spiritual understanding of My word. I am seeking after the seers–those who will see in the realm of the Spirit. I am releasing the anointed ones; My holy ones that will become My army that shall arise and go forth in power. There shall never be a generation like them again, for they shall be a final generation, a glorious generation, and a generation that will receive their commands from the Lord of Hosts. They shall be sent forth to accomplish My purposes. So I say, recognize that this indeed is the end of the age and it is the prelude to those things to come that will bring devastation upon the earth. Therefore, position yourself by faith this day and dedicate yourself to Me for My purposes, says the Lord.

The enemy continues to look for chinks in your armor or places where you are not completely protected so that he can attack. These places of weakness are because the desires of your soul take preeminence over truth and righteousness. You will have prime opportunities to rise above the works of the flesh and overcome the works of darkness. I have given you authority and the ability to gain the victory, says the Lord.
Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/27/11:
You are children of My kingdom where light and love rule and where darkness has no place. Arise to your position where Satan has nothing in you and you have nothing in him. Be done with criticism, judgement, hatred, gossip, slander and backbiting, for these choices and attitudes allow the devil access to your soul. I say again, refuse to allow him to use you as an instrument of his evil intentions. Let My kingdom be established in you, says the Lord.
Luke 6:41-42 “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/26/11:
Pride has no credibility and does not represent My kingdom in truth. Prepare to receive correction that will place you in a position of strength through humility. My representatives and ambassadors must be trustworthy and believable before they can usher anyone into the eternal kingdom. The call of duty has gone forth, and I am mustering My troops under the banner of the humble heart. Those who hear My call will come forth under that banner, says the Lord of Hosts.
Proverbs 22:4 By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches and honor and life.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/25/11:
My eyes are looking to and fro throughout the whole earth to see who will speak for Me. I am looking for purity of heart and profound precision in hearing My voice. I seek those who will rise above the mundane words of self-proclaimed prophets whose words are part iron and part clay–part Spirit and part flesh. For those words do not carry the strength of My anointing, nor do they give true direction or change the lives of My people. My voice will be heard in the secret places as a still, small voice, but it also resounds, resonates and creates. Will you hear when I speak, says the Lord?
Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 5/24/11:
Be encouraged and learn to live in the moment, for as you learn the art of living in the moment and seeking My face, that moment will become a treasure to you rather than a judgement. It will become a blessing to you rather than a curse to you. I am seeking those who are Mine, and they must be found seeking My kingdom first. If you do not learn to live in the moment, the signs that I provide, the instruction that I desire to impart to you, and the blessing of that moment will all pass you by and the opportunity will be gone. So, become spiritually awake to such an extent that you are living in present reality. Make sure in this season that you take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves, says the Lord.

Beloved, establish justice in your own heart and do what is right, for I delight in goodness and am merciful to those who show mercy. I value uprightness and will bless those who consider others more highly than themselves. Maintain a standard of honesty and fairness regardless of the corruption that abounds on the earth, says the Lord. Overcome evil with good.
Amos 5:24 But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 5/23/11:
I hear the Lord saying, arise from the place where you have been seated. Arise and come into the place that I have for you. Come and let us reason together. Come and take a little journey with Me for the journey will be both challenging and satisfying. This journey is going to be a spiritual experience that you have never walked through before. So, come in the power of this day. Come in this anointing. Come with the presence of My hand upon your shoulder. I will lead you and guide you and take you in to this place in the fulfillment of your destiny, says the most Holy One.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/23/11:
I have set aside a modern-day land of Goshen in the realm of the Spirit where My people can thrive regardless of economic uncertainty and perilous conditions in the world. Come into this place of protection and anointing by faith. Come under My covering and favor, says the Lord. I will take care of you.
1 Peter 2:9-10 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/20/11:
You have been called and set aside for My purposes alone. Do not allow the enemy’s persuasion to lead you into worldliness and complacency. You are living in the time of the great falling away where apostasy abounds, and that which is ungodly and unholy will be presented as not only acceptable but desirable. Refuse to compromise the truth. My Word is your standard; measure everything by it, says the Lord.
Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/19/11:
Let the revelation of My kingdom flow like a river so that you can come to a clear understanding of your purpose in it. I tell you honestly that nothing that manifests in and through you by My Spirit is wasted. If you have eyes to see and ears to hear, you will know that as you surrender completely to Me I will cause light and life to be established in you. Maintain your spiritual focus, and keep your faith strong, says the Lord.
Psalm 121:1-8 I will lift up my eyes to the hills-From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/18/11:
I am the light of the world, says the Lord. That light is shining in your heart even now to reveal the places of darkness where the enemy can build a stronghold against you and against all that is holy. I want you to allow the light of truth to illuminate and dispel the darkness and even the shadows that lurk. This is a work of discernment and faith. Discernment comes when you can see clearly and with precision. This is no time to try to play guessing games in the realm of the spirit. There will be no more pretending as I separate the true from the false.
Hebrews 5:14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/17/11:
I see your heart and your desire to be righteous, and I honour your vigilance against all that is unholy. But, you must not become obsessed with introspection, for that is a work of the flesh and will bring condemnation. I want you to trust Me to bring conviction and to lead you in the path of righteousness. Just yield to the moving of My Spirit upon your heart, and I will bring correction and make it very clear to you whenever you step out of the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord.
Psalms 23:3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 5/16/11:
Arise again, My people. For, is it not written that I will make you again another vessel–a stronger vessel? I, Myself, will bring the touch of My hand upon your shoulder and empower you with greater authority than ever you have walked in. I will bring you to a higher level of faith than ever before. You are the mighty men of this season; the worshipping warriors that go forth to defeat the works of the enemy. Come forth and declare the victory even before you can see the results of the battle. For I say that when you declare the victory beforehand it is a manifestation of faith. That faith releases My power, My goodness, and My strength. It will move you to greater heights. So, rise up and receive that which I am doing, says the Lord.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/16/11:
You have fought to make spiritual progress and to overcome the enemy. Now, maintain your victory. Hold your ground. Expect retaliation, but know that he has no authority to remove what I have given to you. Be strong and courageous. Set a watch and refuse to be bamboozled by the devil’s lies, says the Lord. Luke 19:13b Occupy till I come.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/13/11:
I delight in those whose hearts are hungry for more, and to you I will reveal the secrets of the kingdom. Your pursuit will bring great reward, for I will draw near to those who come near to Me, says the Lord. I will speak to you who have ears to hear and open hearts to receive all that I have. So, I say, pursue; come to Me. Seek Me with all of your heart, and I will be found by you. It is My great pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Luke 12:32 Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/12/11:
Haven’t I said that I would give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches in secret places? Stop and ponder. You will find that I have brought the light of revelation in areas of your life that you didn’t even expect. Rejoice that you are growing in understanding because this understanding will make you more effective in My kingdom, says the Lord. I have given you a taste and a glimpse of My glory, which will make you desire even more.
Isaiah 45:3 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.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/11/11:
Take the time to be quiet so that you can be sensitive to My wisdom and My leading. When you give into the temptation to entertain emotional turmoil, you will no longer hear My voice. Instead, the doors will open for the enemy’s confusion to flood in. Refuse to allow the devil to have any ground in you whatsoever, quiet your soul, and trust Me to direct your steps, says the Lord. I am your help in times of trouble; rely on Me.
Psalm 9:9-10 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/10/11:
I speak to those who feel disconnected either from Me, says the Lord, or those who have been a source of encouragement in the past. You have not set out deliberately to pull away, but your focus has shifted and your life has taken a different turn. Now is the time to re-evaluate your life’s direction and consider the relationships that are important to you and then choose to let some go while reconnecting with others. Be reminded that you are in a season of restoration, and there are things that need to be recovered at this time.
Proverbs 25:25 As cold water to a weary soul, so is good news from a far country.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 5/9/11:
I say to you, My people, have you ears to hear? And, if you have heard then you know the season in which you live, and you will know the time of elevation that is at hand. I am calling across the land, and I am searching to and fro, and I am bringing forth a people who will see and know the reality of My kingdom. They will show many the path that leads to life and the trail that leads to Zion. They themselves will lead those that are lost along the way and those that are floundering in the tragedy of a mixed doctrine. For purity and truth shall flow forth. Is it not written that mercy and truth will kiss. Indeed, when truth comes, My mercy abounds in the land. And, it is for this reason that I give you this opportunity to have eagle vision and have yourselves a greater level of communication in the Spirit than ever you have had before. So, encourage yourself and rise up and fulfill your destiny. Become a watchman on the wall of this season so that you may see, hear, and know the reality of My soon coming, says the Lord God Almighty. Rise up.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/9/11:
Wake up, My beloved, and be renewed. Arise to a place of life and energy both spiritually and naturally. I will come to you like the rain that refreshes and softens the ground of your heart to allow My expression of life and growth. It is indeed time to break up the fallow ground of your heart, those places that have become hardened and unproductive as a result of difficult challenges. Allow Me to remove the darkness of the past and flood you with the light of My love and hope, says the Lord.
Hosea 10:12 Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the LORD, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/6/11:
I saw in the spirit a whirlwind blowing through bringing a sense of chaos and confusion with it. And, I heard the Lord say: This wind is a test of your endurance. If you give in to the force of the wind, chaos and confusion will dominate. But, if you will stand still and refuse to react to this ill wind, you will find that it will strengthen your inner man. Don’t lose your focus; be strong and resolute, says the Lord.
Exodus 14:13a And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/5/11:
It is My Word that reveals the thoughts and intentions of your heart. Let the truth separate the flesh from the Spirit and expose your motives. I want to motivate you with purity and righteousness to do all that I have set before you to accomplish. Be aware, however, that the enemy will do his utmost to keep you from walking and living in the Spirit. Yield to My leading, and I will direct your steps, says the Lord.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/4/11:
Beloved, if you will pay attention and watch, I am going to reveal to you the thoughts and emotions that are in opposition to My word, says the Lord. I am raising up a company of those who will reign with Me, but you cannot rule when you do not abide by the rules, the spiritual laws of My kingdom. Much of what you entertain in the way of thoughts and emotions are habits that must be broken if you are to rise up in the power of the Spirit. A word of caution, however, you will be tempted to move into the condemnation of the flesh instead of allowing My correction to come to you as sons.
Hebrews 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/3/11:
I was reminded of the Israelites in Babylon when they hung their harps on the willows, and I heard the Lord say, “Many of you, My people, have not raised your voices in song or played your instruments because of the oppression of the times you live in. But, I am releasing you from bondage to sing a new song that will come forth with supernatural joy that will transcend your circumstances and afflictions. This is the joy that comes from abiding in the Spirit; the true joy of war and victory,” says the Lord.
Psalm 137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept When we remembered Zion. We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it. For there those who carried us away captive asked of us a song, and those who plundered us requested mirth, saying, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!” How shall we sing the LORD’S song In a foreign land? If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill!
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 5/2/11:
I speak to you, My people, today, and I encourage you to sow the seeds of the Jubilee. For when the Jubilee comes there is a profoundness, a reality that is spiritual, by way of revelation that reveals who I am and reveals My goodness to My people. For in the understanding of this, the special Jubilee in this season, you will have the understanding that I choose to bless you according to your obedience and your faith. I choose to bless you with abundance even during these disastrous times that plague this earth. So rise up today with new hope; walk in the power of this day and in the power of a prophetic culmination of those words which have been spoken. In fact, those words will establish a spiritual atmosphere that you can abide in, that you can be renewed in, that you can be blessed in, says the Most Holy.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/2/11:
Behold, I go before you to prepare a way for you. Stay close to Me so that you do not deviate from the path, for you live in dangerous times. Your obedience to My leading is of vital importance. You must not stray from the way of righteousness in this hour. My word will illuminate the path before you so that your feet do not slip, says the Lord. Be steady!
Psalms 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
