SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns:
Release yourself from the bondage of fear and worry. When your faith is in Me, I will carry you in the flow of My Spirit. But, you must not hang on to the things of the world or put your trust in natural things. Your faith is substantive and vital to your success in any endeavor, and you must put it to work by actual belief and not just hope. I am looking for a people who have a strong and working faith whose actions demonstrate My kingdom, says the Lord.
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Be free of all bondage and keep your heart pure before Me, says the Lord. Then, you will be able to discern spiritually. However, anything that creates darkness in your soul will cause you to dump down in the flesh and will cloud your spiritual perceptions. Be on guard, for this is a time when seductions to choose flesh over Spirit are rampant. Obtain and maintain purity.
Psalms 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

Beloved, see to it that you are not harboring any offenses or bitterness in your heart so that there are no divisions among you. Division will hinder your walk with Me and keep you stuck in the flesh instead of walking in the Spirit. You need to be free, but you cannot attain that liberty until you truly forgive and release others. Don’t let another day go by allowing this judgement to stand, says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 3:3 “….for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?”
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns:– 11/28/2011
I am with you and I am for you. I have designed a path before you that will lead you forth into the redemptive revelation of My present purposes. And those purposes, My people, will unveil your destiny. In this season you will begin to understand Me in a greater way. I will share with you the hidden manna–the manna that has been set aside for this season and for this time. As you eat the manna of the revelation of who I am it will become your present treasure in these days, says the Lord.

Recognize that your experiences will be marked by great expectations and great resistance. The great expectations come from your faith to receive the promises I have made to you. The great resistance is a result of more pressure from the enemy. The choices you make at this time to both believe and to fight will determine the nature of your spiritual environment. Be diligent to walk in the Spirit, says the Lord.
Galatians 5:16 “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”

You live in times of great evil and adversity. Your only place of escape is in Me, says the Lord. You must come and hide yourself in truth and righteousness so that the enemy cannot touch you and nothing can dissuade you from My purposes and your life in Me. This is a deliberate commitment and takes effort to maintain, but I will give you the help and strength you need. Don’t get caught up in the issues of life and worldly concerns; keep eternal focus.
Psalms 27:5 “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock”.

Resist the temptation to settle into religious complacency–that place where you are satisfied with what you already know. I have more to teach you. Let Me lead you on an adventure of fresh excitement in obtaining a greater measure of spiritual reality and a closer relationship with Me, says the Lord. Don’t get stuck in a rut; keep seeking; keep moving.
Philippians 3:12 “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.”

Refuse to allow yourself to get weary while standing in faith, in prayer, or in warfare. Seek My face and come into My presence where you can be refreshed and renewed. This is no time to get discouraged. Don’t give up! You are at the point of a significant breakthrough if you will just continue to fight through the opposition. Be strong and resolute, says the Lord.
Galatians 6:9 “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Beloved, rise up in faith to know that no weapon formed against you will prosper. It doesn’t matter what the enemy brings against you, you belong to Me. You will have to take a stand and resist his maneuvers, but I have already given you the power to defeat him soundly. Refuse to allow his tactics to overwhelm you or bring discouragement. It is My will that you obtain and maintain the victory, says the Lord.
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns:– 11/21/2011
I’ve come to you to bring you the revelation of who I am and to establish My true character in your being. It will overhaul your thinking, your concepts, and your mindsets, and it will regenerate in you the seed of the Kingdom, the truth and power of the kingdom. For, you have the ability and the right to be strong in the power of My presence. Allow Me, this moment, to open the eyes of your understanding that you may see that which I am doing with you, in you and around you. Do not be discouraged but allow faith, hope and love to arise in your heart. Remember that I am for you, not against you. I have gone before you and prepared the way so that you may walk on that path of righteousness, and that path leads to victory. I do not condemn you, so do not be disheartened but rise up in a place of knowledge, trust and faith, says the Lord God.

One of the most valuable weapons in your arsenal is discernment. Ask for discernment, and I will show you how to fight effectively and gain the victory in warfare. It is My battle, but you are My battle axes and weapons of war. Fight against My foe and yours in faith and with the authority that I have given you to overcome, says the Lord.
Jeremiah 51:20 “You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces; With you I will destroy kingdoms.”

Resist the temptation to make a mountain out of the proverbial molehill or to create an issue out of something not worth your time or effort to consider. You will have unique opportunities to think about your position in the light of spiritual reality and to be able to see the value in not overreacting emotionally to things that represent a challenge to you. When you are not sure which way to turn, ask Me and I will show you the way, says the Lord. Plant your feet on the ground of hope and faith, and do not compromise your position.
1 Peter 1:20-21 “He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.”

The light of revelation is shining as a beacon of understanding to reveal your own heart. You can’t do anything about what you cannot see. But, when the light comes you will be able to see your thoughts, emotions, desires and will more completely and make adjustments where necessary. I am calling you to Myself to be the Bride without spot or wrinkle, and this is a time of preparation, says the Lord.
Ephesians 5:27 “that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.”

The challenges that you have faced since Rosh Hashanah (September 28-30, 2011) have been for the purpose of coming face to face with aspects of your life that needed attention. These situations presented an opportunity to either overcome and gain the victory or become a victim of circumstances. Those who have had breakthrough are those who exercised a higher level of faith both in prayer and warfare. For those who overcame and realized the victory, the only thing left for you to do is a spiritual version of mopping up after the mess. That is to apply the cleansing blood of Christ and be free from all defilement of flesh and spirit. For those who were victimized, you will have another opportunity down the road to overcome, but do not fear. I am with you always, says the Lord.
Matthew 28:20b “…and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

I am enlightening the eyes of your understanding so that you can see beyond your circumstances and temporary issues to view and understand your calling more fully. This light will bring perspective so that you don’t obsess about that which will come to pass. Set your eyes and your faith on the things that matter long-term, and don’t worry, says the Lord.
Ephesians 1:18 “the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns:– 11/14/2011
Receive that which I send. Received it as a blessing. Receive the sound of the kingdom into your being. Let it mould you and make you into the image of My glory and the presence of My being. Allow Me to do this work in you. For, that which would take place in these days has been determined long ago, says the Lord. These are the days of destiny fulfilled; these are the days of discovery; these are the days in which you, My people, can become what I have spoken of you. My blessings now will be revealed in such magnitude and in such astounding ways that you will find yourself surprised and then surprised again and continuing to be surprised by the Spirit of the Lord, for these are the days of the release of My power. Rise to the occasion and be all that you can be in these season and time.

These are times when you can put forth a supreme effort to strengthen that which remains. There has been a very great shaking that has caused many to feel unsteady, but many things that have been shaken out were things that needed to go so that you can be strengthened and established more completely in your spiritual destiny. Let go of any sense of loss or failure and move forward in strength of spirit, says the Lord.
Hebrews 12:27 “Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.”

Don’t forget who you are in Me, says the Lord. Refuse to allow worldly distractions or lusts of the flesh to distract you from My presence. Keep your eternal perspective, and maintain clear spiritual focus. Your spiritual growth and clarity depend on your measure of self-control. You are on the threshold of spiritual insights and greater understanding of My kingdom, so don’t stop here or go back. Keep pressing on.
2 Corinthians 10:5: 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.”

I have spoken to you about a new freedom and liberty in preparation for the release that will provide an avenue by which you will be able to move to a new level of spiritual experience. There is still much for you to learn and understand about living and walking in the Spirit. The knowledge that you gain now will be invaluable in obtaining the victory both in the natural realm and in the spiritual realm, says the Lord. Let Me lead you to new heights.
2 Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”

My beloved people, I am calling to you, urging you to draw near to Me into a place of spiritual vitality. It is My desire that you give no place for the lusts of the flesh, but that you completely yield to the moving of My Holy Spirit. In that spiritual reality, you will begin to live in the strength and protection of righteousness. Righteousness is a strong fortress against attacks from the forces of evil, says the Lord. Draw near.
Romans 13:14 “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

Look around you, and see economies and governments beginning to crumble. Truly, the signs of end-time events are all around you. Yet, this is not a time when you should be afraid, but a time to rejoice that the day of redemption draws near. This is a time when your hope will be realized in putting your trust in Me, says the Lord, and not in world systems. Your faith is too precious to waste on man-made empires. Set your heart and faith on things eternal and not on the temporary.
Luke 21:28 “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns: — 11/7/11
Open your eyes, My beloved, for I will indeed show you wondrous things in these days. The things that you have yearned for and sought after will indeed become a spiritual reality, which you cannot only grasp, see and hear, but the truth of these matters will be validated by the Spirit, that lives in you, as He confirms that which I am doing in these days, says the Lord. For the mysteries of old, the mysteries that have been hidden, the mysteries that have been set aside for this time will indeed be revealed as you continue to walk in My presence and in My power. In this coming year, as you give yourself to My purposes and willingly live under My divine government, the supernatural and unusual shall begin to manifest in your midst. Miracles will bring transformation that you have longed to see, and the healing power of the Most High will flow like living water among My people. I will make a distinction between those who are Mine and those who are not Mine. The line has been drawn in the sand. Do not cross the line but stand behind it in My purposes, in My power and in My presence.

I heard the Lord say: My prophets have been isolated and scattered, and the prophetic word has been difficult for them to hear because the roar of the enemy has risen to drown out the word of the Lord. Many have become prey to the evening wolves, and they have been distracted and even disheartened by their days of adversity and affliction. But, I tell you truly that there is a call from heaven going forth even now for the true prophets to arise on the fresh wind and anointing of My Spirit and soar to new heights, to hear My voice loud and clear, and to make the prophetic announcement.
Isaiah 40:31 “But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

If you will cooperate with the work I am doing in you and in My Body, I will bring you into a wide place, and you will be released from restrictions that have kept you from moving freely with the flow of My Spirit. Some of these restrictions have been the result of your interaction with other people, and some restrictions have been of your own making and choices. Now is the time when you can establish yourself in greater freedom than you have ever known, says the Lord.
John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/3/11:
I have gone before you and established the path to liberty. I am the way, the truth and the life. Hear the sound of My voice as I call you to come out of darkness into light and out of bondage into freedom. Your righteousness is of Me if you will accept it and live in the reality of redemption. There are no valid excuses for staying in darkness or bondage, for I am the way-maker. I have made a way for you, says the Lord. Come forth into the glorious light.
Romans 8:2 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”

There are adjustments to be made if you will live and walk in the Spirit. Watch for and discern those things that remove you from My presence, says the Lord. For, there are thoughts, motives, and actions that need to be overcome and abandoned for the sake of peace and eternal benefit. The enemy of your soul continues to watch for opportunities to destroy you. This is a time when you should make your call and election sure.
2 Peter 1:5-11 “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/1/11:
Pay attention, prophets of Mine. Silence your flesh, listen and see by the Spirit. For, the trumpet is about to sound in preparation for the heavenly announcement to come forth. Prepare yourselves to hear, and I will speak to My people through you. It will be a clear and vital message that only the pure in heart will perceive, and only those whose hearts are open will receive. Wait patiently for its soon release, says the Lord.
Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”
