I have heard your prayers for things that you would consider beyond your realm of responsibility, and I see and respond to your faith. Watch and be amazed at the answer to your prayer. You have reached higher and further than you ever thought possible, and I am well pleased with your desire to go higher in spiritual understanding and to exercise your faith on that level. Well done, My beloved servant, says the Lord.
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.'”

Rise up in the realm of the spirit and speak to your mountain, that mountain that looms large before you that you do not know how to get around or over. I have given you the authority to move it out of your way so that you can progress unhindered. There are things that are beyond your ability to deal with in the natural realm, but all things are possible with Me, says the Lord. Speak to this mountain in My name.
Mark 11:23 “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

My desire for you, My beloved, is that your obedience is of primary importance and that you do nothing apart from My leading. You are living in a time when distractions abound, and there are constant seductions to satisfy fleshly desires that pull at you to get you off course and out of the flow of My Spirit. Yet, it is a small thing to set your heart to do what I have given you to do and to go where I have intended, says the Lord.
John 5:19 “Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.”

People who have rejected you in the past are up once again for review. Take this time to release them completely, and do not allow those old, negative emotions or condemnation to resurface. Let bygones be bygones, and then move on. In this season you must be free from all bondage in order to take advantage of the next wave of My Spirit, for it is indeed coming in like the tide. All you have to do to experience this moving of the Spirit is to be ready to receive, says the Lord.
Romans 8:5 “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/25/12:
Arise, My people, for indeed this is your finest hour. This is not just a cliché; it is a spiritual truth. For, I intend to bring forth a glorious church. And, it shall be done. So, I say to you, arise. Shake off the defilement of discouragement. Fight the good fight of faith against the power of heaviness. Indeed, you will prevail for I am with you. I am with you to strengthen you and to carry you through the ordeals of this life. I will walk with you through the fire and on the water. I will be with you when the wind carries you into the fullness of My purposes. Get up and lift the hands that hang down in weakness. Strengthen the feebleness of your walk. Those that come with Me and lean upon My strength and My power shall have the victory. I am delivering you from all that hinders you. I’m removing from you the stumbling blocks the enemy has placed in your path. I will make a way for you to come into the fullness of your destiny. For, it has been determined in the heavenly council and shall be performed by My Spirit, says the Lord.

Refuse to allow disappointment or discouragement to undermine your faith. You must keep your faith strong if you are to receive what I have promised, says the Lord. Unbelief is your enemy.
Romans 4:20 “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/22/12:
Watch for prime opportunities to move ahead in My progression for your life. There are things for which you have been set and chosen, and these things are not always earth shaking or life changing. They are simply things that will bring blessings to yourself and others as you move in the flow of seasons and events. Do not hesitate to do what comes your way, or to do what comes next. Do not be afraid, says the Lord, for I am directing your steps.
Psalms 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.”

Beloved, it is My will and desire that you not only establish yourself in My presence as you walk in the Spirit, but I would have you establish My presence, power and glory in areas where you live and work so that I am never far from you, says the Lord. Constantly maintain peace and righteousness in yourself and in your surroundings. You are indeed the light of the world; let your light shine to illuminate the darkness, yes even deep darkness and gloominess on the earth.
2 Corinthians 4:6 “For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

I speak to My intercessors when I tell you that when I call you to do the work of prayer no matter how close or far, I would have you to pray only as led by My Spirit. Do not consider your own interests with regard to any situation. Refuse to become emotionally invested in a situation, but go in Spirit and do My bidding, says the Lord. I am looking for those who will yield as a vessel of My will.
James 5:16b “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

I am causing you to have to reach to higher heights and greater depths. Skimming the surface of your spirituality will no longer suffice. It is My desire that you grow in your knowledge and understanding of the Kingdom. Every child of the King has a vital role to play in the overall scheme of things, and it is time for you, My children, to step up and do your part, says the Lord. You are being groomed and trained for victory.
Ephesians 4:16 “from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/18/12:
My people, rise up with determination. Come fully into the kingdom that has been established for you; My kingdom; the kingdom of glory; the kingdom where you will find peace, joy, and love. Set your heart on pilgrimage. Take this journey into the fullness and the goodness of that which I have provided for you. Do not allow the enemy to dissuade you. Do not allow him to hinder you. Come; get up from the place that you are and come forth and receive that which I am doing in this hour, says the Lord. For indeed I am bringing forth a glorious church in the land and My glory shall rest upon her, and My glory shall be will manifest in and through her. Come and rejoice, for this is the day of My power; the day of great joy; the day in which I manifest Myself not only among My people but in and through My people. Encourage yourself and come forth into the understanding that I am with you and for you; I will never leave nor forsake you. My presence will lead you forth in triumph.

Reach beyond where you have been. I want to expand your understanding, awareness, and spiritual experience, but you must cooperate in this opportunity for growth by choosing to yield to My work in you. Prepare to experience greater light and clarity, which will give you a sense of higher purpose, says the Lord.
Proverbs 2:1-5 “My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.”

Release yourself from all frustration and irritation. The things that haven’t worked out the way you hoped they would were for the purpose of a course correction. You will gain some much needed wisdom from recent events that had the potential for disappointment and discouragement. Forgive yourself and others, and ask Me for wisdom. I will provide not only wisdom but direction and guidance. Trust me to keep you in the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord.
Galatians 5:16 “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”

I see your difficulties and struggles. In fact, I am well aware of every detail of your life, says the Lord. And, I tell you the truth, you can trust Me to bring you through these harsh circumstances safely and in victory. All you need to do is maintain your faith and keep your focus. I will not leave you desolate. Let Me lead you through the maze of uncertainty and problematic situations. Know that I am for you and with you.
Psalm 28:35-36 “You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great. You enlarged my path under me, so my feet did not slip.”

Beloved, I am building you up and not tearing you down. Like any building, you are coming to completion one step at a time, one component at a time. You have not attained, but you are being built up in your most holy faith as you yield to the work of My Spirit, says the Lord. You are indeed part of My glorious Church, which is becoming holy and without blemish. Allow Me to perfect you.
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.

Set a watch for divine justice to be accomplished. I will bring correction and adjustment in areas where you are off course, and I will establish you more solidly in My plans and purposes for your life, says the Lord. Don’t resist what I am about to do, but rather yield to the process. When all is said and done you will be able to operate in greater spiritual freedom and vitality.
1 Peter 4:17 “For the time has come for judgement to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/11/12:
I reveal Myself as the Master over My house. Even though you have not understood nor known My presence in the way you would like to know it, I have indeed watched over you and been with you. I have even revealed Myself through the circumstances of your life. T hose circumstances are designed to cause you to become the kings of this earth that bring glory in to My house. So, I say, renew yourself in spirit. Reach out with faith and allow Me to touch you. I am with you, never to leave you. I am always with you in your time of need. I am always for you. I know you, and My desire is that you know Me in a greater way. Open your spiritual ears and eyes; listen and watch for I am coming in unexpected ways in these days with unusual signs and miracles that will show you that indeed I have not forgotten about you. For, My word declares that I will be with you always, even to the very end of this age, says the Lord.

You have come to this point in your walk with Me many times, but have stopped short of the fullness of what I have prepared for you. This is very much like crossing the river into the promised land. The land has already been given to you, but you must take it. Will it take effort? Yes. Will it be a fight to overcome the enemy? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes. Put aside your fears and trepidation, and trust Me that I will strengthen you for the journey and be with you in the fight, says the Lord.
Deuteronomy 27:3 “… when you have crossed over, that you may enter the land which the LORD your God is giving you, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey,’ just as the LORD God of your fathers promised you.”

This is no time to get earth bound or to be distracted by problems and worries. It is a time to release your concerns to me and trust that I will give wisdom and show you the way of resolution. Your faith will be like the wind that will lift and carry you like a bird into the realm of spiritual destiny. Get your priorities in order, and seek My face, says the Lord, and I will give you eternal perspective.
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.”

Pay attention, and watch for signs in the natural that confirm what I am doing spiritually. When I give you instruction and direction, I will confirm it with signs following, says the Lord. It is up to you to believe and respond accordingly. However, you cannot be a gate-crasher. You must wait for doors of opportunity to both open and close. It is to your great advantage to stay in the flow of the Spirit.
Mark 16:20 “And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/6/12:
Expand! These are times to grow in your spiritual awareness and understanding. Don’t stagnate in dead, dry religious tradition. You know that you are stuck in the doldrums of religious exercise when life in the Spirit becomes a memory instead of today’s experience. Come alive ! Stir yourself up until you are moved by the power of My presence, says the Lord, and until you know that life in the Spirit is your fuel.
2 Peter 1:2-4 “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/5/12:
Be strong and stay steady as you move from one thing to the next. I didn’t promise that it would be easy, but I did promise that I would be with you and not forsake you. There will be times when you just need to be quiet; an emotional meltdown will not serve your best interests, says the Lord. Trust Me for wisdom and direction. I will indeed point the way and protect you on the way.
Hebrews 3:14 “For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/4/12:
Set a watch over your circumstances. Watch for the enemy’s intrusion. Be still and know that I am God, and watch for that which I will teach you as I work in your circumstances. Only believe. The hardest of these trials will bring you to a place of perfection. They will bring you to a place you have never yet been. They will establish you fully in My kingdom, says the Lord, living under My divine rule. And, out of that rule shall come the glory that I carry and distribute as a result of your faith and trust in Me.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/4/12:
Beloved, I am calling you to a higher and more concrete level of faith that will become the basis for activity and endurance. Much of your spiritual function has been fueled by hope rather than faith and trust in Me, says the Lord. I would have you come to a level of true belief according to My will and purposes.
John 16:23 “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/1/12:
Set a careful watch over the words of your mouth and the meditations of your heart. Your criticism and judgement of others will open a door for the enemy, and you will also be criticized and judged, which is not conducive to a healthy spiritual environment. I would have you to be about the work of the kingdom, of building up and not tearing down, says the Lord. Love one another as I have loved you.
Matthew 7:1-2 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgement you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”
