THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/30/12:
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, My people have forgotten to come to Me in their time of need in faith, believing that I will interact on their behalf. So, today, I say come. Come and be renewed. Come and be healed. Come and be the child that I have called you to be. Come and walk with Me in relationship. Come and be with Me in Spirit. Let the power of My Spirit invade your lives. Let My voice be a beckoning power to you. Get up this day from your place and come unto Me with the full assurance that I will touch you; I will speak with you; and I will nurture you. I, Myself, will come.

You are at a point when the order of the day is decisive action. Indecision will only hinder your flow in the Spirit. Seek My face and examine your own heart and then make choices based on what you know, understand, and desire. The river of My Spirit is moving rapidly at this time, and being in the flow will be exciting and exhilarating, says the Lord.
Psalms 37:4 “Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.”

You’ve heard it said, “Do not let the sun go down on your wrath.” But, I also tell you not to let any day end with strife, contention, or division in your own heart or between you and someone else. Seek peace and let it be established in you and in your environment. Set your mind on things of the Spirit and not on trouble in the world. Let your soul be established in righteousness, peace and joy, says the Lord. This is especially crucial in the current political climate in your nation and around the world.
1 Peter 3:11 “Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.”

Beloved, you are in an equipping phase. You are being equipped and given proper equipment to accomplish what I have set before you to do in the days ahead. You may even be surprised by the things I am preparing you for, but I will show you the way. There is no place in this transition for anxiety or fear that you will not be ready. When I am in the lead, your steps are perfectly ordered, says the Lord. Let Me move you.
Isaiah 52:12 “For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the LORD will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.”

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.”

My love for you is an everlasting love and transcends all natural affection. As you draw close to Me, that love will manifest in you and through you to others so that your love for others is also unconditional and not based on your needs, desires, or personal prejudice. Let Me transform your heart, says the Lord, and bring you to a higher level of love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/23/12:
I hear the wind blowing, the river running, and the fire burning. And, the Lord says, if you will only but believe that which I have spoken then you shall have it. You shall make it your own and it shall become a living reality in these coming weeks.

Watch for the little things that need attention. Details that you overlook at this time could interrupt your spiritual flow and present a bigger problem later on. Your thoroughness now will be of great benefit to you and those around you in the future. Take the time you need to do every job well, says the Lord. You will be glad you did.
Song of Solomon 2:15 “Catch us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines, for our vines have tender grapes.”

Allow Me to move you into the place of abiding in Me. Let truth, righteousness and peace be the result. Make a quality decision to yield to this work of the Spirit in you, for My divine government is being established on the earth one soul at a time. I call you to be part of that government by faith and to rule and reign with Me. Faith without works is dead, so I ask you to surrender your life completely to My kingdom purposes, says the Lord, and let the fruit of the Spirit become evident in your life.
Isaiah 9:7 “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgement and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

Re-establish your spiritual focus. I am alive, says the Lord, and My kingdom is already established. It is finished. It is real, and the way has been provided for you to be one with Me in the invisible realm of the Spirit. Come and commune with Me in the secret place. Rise above your worldly concerns and let us have sweet fellowship together. Don’t delay. Come now that your joy may be full.
John 15:9-11 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.”

In a vision I saw a little pink pig. It looked pretty clean and was on a grassy knoll. But, it began to root around and dig as if to make a wallow. And, the Lord showed me that a weapon is being formed against the body of Christ to convince us that our efforts to be spiritual just aren’t working. It’s too hard to keep praying; it’s too hard to continue to war against the enemy; it’s too hard to overcome the flesh. The enemy wants us to give up and go back to wallowing in the mire. The Lord says, refuse to give up. Your walk in the Spirit will prepare and cause you to overcome the flesh, the world, and the devil.
2 Peter 2:20-22 “For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit,” and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”

Surrender yourself completely to Me, says the Lord. Ask and I will show you areas of your soul where you have reserved the right of exercise and control. Those places of thought and feelings will remain a battle ground for the enemy to use against you until they are completely surrendered and redeemed. It won’t be hard for you to recognize those areas because they have repeatedly been the source of difficulty in your life. Look in the realms of bitterness, condemnation, failure, fear, and worry. The act of surrender must be a deliberate act of your will. If you surrender, I will do the work of redemption.
Philippians 2:13 “… for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/16/12:
The gates are open. Go through the gates. Raise the standard. Run the race. Believe and you shall receive. My glory is coming upon My people — coming to you to provide a spiritual atmosphere in which you will be forever changed. Come and abide in My presence, says the Lord. Come and receive the anointing. Come and receive the glory and let it nurture you; let it strengthen you; let it heal you; let it bring you higher within My kingdom than ever before. I am now providing hinds feet to My people so that you can climb the mountain and come up to Zion’s hill into the glory. Come!

Be reminded that “NO” is an anointed word, and you don’t have to apologize for using it as often as is necessary. The enemy will accuse you of being heartless and will send a hefty dose of guilt and condemnation your way, but this attack is a seduction. It is designed to lure you into countering a haughty spirit with haughtiness and control with a power struggle when “no” is sufficient. It doesn’t have to be a fight, just stand your ground and maintain good boundaries, says the Lord.
Proverbs 26:17 “He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a dog by the ears.”

You have entered a season of blessing in which the doors will open for opportunities to advance spiritually and naturally. You will be surprised and delighted as you progress through this extraordinary time. It is a time of revelation and resolution as things that have seemed to be beyond your ability to grasp will now be within your reach and will create a sense of freedom that you have longed for. Draw near to Me, says the Lord, for I will give light, discernment, and truth where things have seemed to be murky.
John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'”

When you know the right thing to do and do not do it the result is darkness and oppression. However, faithfulness always results in joy. If you desire to experience the joy of the Lord, the first step is obedience and being a good steward over what you have been given and over what you’ve been given to do. I delight in faithfulness in My people, says the Lord. Do not underestimate or minimize the results of obedient action and a grateful attitude.
Matthew 25:23 “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'”

Be aware, beloved, that a haughty spirit is trying to find an inroad that could cause you to stumble. It will try to find a way in through misunderstanding and offense. But, you are well able to discover it and avert its purpose, which is to divide and conquer. Stay alert to the possibilities because you know that pride goes before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction. These are not results that you want to endure. Stay ahead of this one, and you will be strengthened, says the Lord.
Proverbs 15:1 “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

In a vision I saw a water skimmer, which has the unique ability to move effortlessly on the surface of water. And, I heard the Lord say: You have skimmed the surface of the knowledge of biblical concepts long enough. If you will allow it, I will bring you to greater knowledge and understanding of My kingdom. And, I will open the scriptures to you in the way of deeper revelation. This will only happen when you desire to tap into more profound spiritual truth, and that desire will cause you to seek more diligently.
Luke 11:9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/9/12:
It is written and it is true, that greater is He that lives in you than he that is ruler over this world. For I have come to live in you; to empower you; to encourage you that you will always have victory if you will join yourself to Me and to My purposes, says the Lord. For, the power of the kingdom is to be made manifest in you. The joy of the kingdom is to be seen in you. The peace of the kingdom is to come upon you. Arise now; arise and march on with full assurance that I am with you and I will never leave you. You will come through into the glory and the manifest destiny that I have for you, My beloved. Let resurrection power flow through you and let it bring that which is needed. Be renewed, healed and strengthened. Come into eternal life and joy for it is My kingdom, says the Most Holy.

The enemy has launched another round of reproach in an effort to try to get you to entertain fear of failure, to be overwhelmed with disapproval, and to dump down into hopelessness. But, the devil is a liar. You must be reminded that you are precious to Me. My love for you is true and forever. Abide in My love and in truth, says the Lord.
1 John 3:20 “For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.”

Take time to evaluate where you’ve been and to remember the things that you learned through your experiences. Do not give in to the temptations that come for you to be a victim of the difficulties you have endured, but rather use those lessons as a platform and a launching pad into greater wisdom and spiritual effectiveness. Those things have made you stronger and have the potential to increase your faith if you maintain a proper perspective, says the Lord.
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

That sense of boredom that you have experienced is about to give way to fresh excitement and new adventure. You will experience yet another shift where doors will open in the Spirit to provide new opportunities for development in both the natural and spiritual realms. Don’t be afraid to let go of what has been in order to reach forward to what is ahead. Feeling bored is more often than not a precursor to change. Be prepared to move ahead, says the Lord.
Exodus 40:36 “Whenever the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would go onward in all their journeys.”

Be aware that discontentment will open the door for a seducing spirit, which will take you to places physically, spiritually and emotionally that you really do not want to go. The plan of the enemy is to get you out of the flow of My Spirit and to distract you from maintaining spiritual vitality. This is a time when you must make a supreme effort to be about the Father’s business, says the Lord.
1 Timothy 6:6 “Now godliness with contentment is great gain.”

Maintain flexibility so that when I give instructions for your next step you are able to move quickly and easily with the flow of My Spirit. Hold your plans loosely instead of being rigidly entrenched in your goals and desires. Your obedience will be tested, and the condition of your heart will become apparent during this time. Don’t give fear an open door in this season, but be sensitive to My wisdom and guidance, says the Lord.
Proverbs 18:15 “The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/4/2/12:
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.

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.”
