THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/31/12:
Rise up My people with the voice of faith, and believe. In this dispensation I am bringing forth a royal priesthood, which has been prophesied for the end of the age. They shall come forth and rule with a mighty hand. They will not be deterred. Their ranks will not be overrun, for they have received the vision of the Lord and the anointing of the Most Holy One rests upon them and causes them to run the race to win. This is the authority that I am releasing in this time. Only believe, says the Lord.

Listen carefully, My children. The enemy has released an attack against you that will result in frustration through spirits of infirmity, fear and heaviness. Infirmity will cause you to feel like you’ve been victimized in some way, fear will cause you to dread, and heaviness will produce despair. I would have you recognize that it will drain you emotionally. But, I have given you authority to cast out these demons and to stop this assault against you. Rise up in that authority and do business in the realm of the spirit, says the Lord, and I will bring restoration and recovery.
Acts 3:19 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”

A new spiritual habitation is being presented to us, and Jesus is saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things. Things you need to know. Be a watchman. Become like the sons of Issachar who have understanding of the times and seasons.”
1 Chronicles 12:32a “… of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…”

The stand that you have taken against the enemy is being challenged. Now you must decide what to do about that. Will you just sit down in defeat because your ground is too hard to hold? Or, will you rise up in faith and authority to re-establish and maintain your victory? The choice is yours, but I am with you and behind you to gain and keep the victory, says the Lord.
1 John 5:4 “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/26/12:
Let your spirit arise. I say to you, come up here and behold My glory, says the Lord. My glory is being poured out, and you will be changed with each encounter that you have with Me. My glory shall be in demonstration to bring transformation. Deep calls to deep at the overflow of My presence into your life. The latter rain is coming to stir your spirit and bring elevation to your being. Have I not said that I would come to you as the rain–the former and the latter rain together? I will come and wash you and empower you for the days ahead.
Zechariah 10:1a “Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain.”

Establish faith in the very foundation of your being. Align your thoughts to agree with My word, says the Lord, for I will answer your faith by bringing forth My word in your life. The blessings and promises of My kingdom are available to everyone who believes. But, you must believe and not allow the enemy to undermine your faith with thoughts of negativity and unbelief. Rise up to receive all that I have provided for you.
Isaiah 55:11 “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/25/12:
The greater the glory that is revealed in you, the greater the battle will become. The battle is designed for your victory, not for your defeat. The battle and the victory are designed to give you a testimony of the power of Christ. So, come and turn back the battle at the gate; do not run from the fight, but rather run to the fight. I declare that your enemies will be defeated, says the Lord. Behold My power as I demonstrate it to you and through you in these days.

Be alert to a weapon formed against you, My people. It is the temptation to give in to dissipation, which is to spend too much time and resources on physical pleasures. This is a subtle attack formed to separate you from My presence and to divert your attention to worldly things and issues of life. Take the time to deliberately redirect your thoughts and energy to spiritual things — things that matter, says the Lord.
1 Peter 4:3-6 “For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles-when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you. They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/24/12:
There are those who are worried about their own spiritual progression. And, there are those who are worried about other people’s spiritual progression. And, so I say unto you bring them before Me. You come to Me personally and if you have thoughts and concerns about others, bring them to Me. Bring them to Me in prayer. Bring them to Me spiritually. Fight the good fight of faith on their behalf. Raise up a standard in your own life that they many see. So, that they may follow the standard that you have established through your relationship with Me, says the Lord. Do not be deterred and do not be dissuaded by the work of the enemy.

Beloved, I am calling you to a new spiritual level. When I call you I make a way for you and provide for your journey. You need not be afraid of missing out because you will be compelled by the pull of My Spirit to take you higher. All you have to do is release your desire to Me for this purpose and surrender to the movement and flow of My Spirit, says the Lord. Prepare your heart for more than you could have imagined.
Ephesians 3:20-21 “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/23/12:
Do not be troubled. Do not allow anxiety to torment you. But, indeed, come aside unto Me this moment where you and I can be one together. And, in the unity of that oneness you will be strengthened, healed, and encouraged. You will receive the wisdom that you desire and need. So, come aside for a moment in these times to be with Me. Come aside and hear My voice and know that I will reveal to you signs and wonders. Then you shall see things that will reveal the direction that you should go. Therefore, watch for those things that I shall show you. Know that I am pouring out unusual signs and wonders among My people that will lead you into the very end of the very age. I will keep you steadfastly on the path of righteousness and will cause you to know Me better than you do even now. So, lay aside all hopelessness, all discouragement, all worry and all anxiety and come be one with Me, says the Lord.

Breakthrough is the order of the day. Circumstances that have seemed resistant to conclusion will now give way to resolution. This time of bringing things to completion will seem like a sweet and refreshing rain that breaks the drought or dryness that comes with stagnation. It will be like the breaking of a dam that frees the movement of a river to flow to its designed destination. Rejoice, says the Lord. Let the flow of My Spirit carry you to destiny.
John 7:38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

There is an opening, a window of opportunity that will allow you to see and understand your stubborn resistance as a means to having things your way. In doing this you actually are pressuring those around you to reform in some way, which is a subtle form of manipulation. At the same time, you are finding it very difficult to move ahead because you continually encounter those who are also resistant to you. And, do you remember that you will reap what you sow? Take this opportunity now to let go of your own stubbornness so that you can have breakthrough, says the Lord.
1 Samuel 15:23a “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry….”

Let there be no divisions among you, My people. It is My will for you that you live in peace as much as possible. Division has its root in pride, and I would have you not provoke one another or start a fight. I am calling you this day to be humble and to forgive those who have offended you or caused you distress. Let this be a new day and a new season of humility and forgiveness, says the Lord.
Romans 12:18-21 “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Set yourself in a position of total surrender to My Spirit, says the Lord. Only in this way will you be able to yield to the corrections that will come to get you back into a spiritual flow. Be aware that the enemy of your soul will try to pervert the value of these changes by causing you to focus inwardly and receive condemnation. The true value of chastening is for the purpose of solving problems in your life so that your efforts will produce better results. Yielding to this process will be of great benefit to you, but you must deliberately refuse to allow your carnal nature to stubbornly resist.
Hebrews 12:11 “Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”

Beloved, I am going before you as you seek to know Me and more of My kingdom and eternal purposes. I will reveal to you the ancient pathways and take you by a way that you have not known. Your understanding will be enlightened to know more fully your calling and the path that I have opened to you, says the Lord.
Hosea 6:3 “Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/16/12:
I am the Lord who watches over you. Have you forgotten that I know you? I know your troubles. I know those things that you struggle with. I know those things that you think about and the things that you set yourself to do. I know your motives and your attitudes. I know all about you. I know you better than you know yourself. I am leading and guiding you. I have never left you nor will I ever forsake you. I know all the things that are before you; the things that are yet unfulfilled. I know what the enemy is planning for you. And, because I know all of these things I am able to work on your behalf, and I am able to bring you through the storms and through the valleys of desperation and through the wars that you encounter. I am able to bring you into the place of liberty and victory if you will believe in Me, trust in Me, walk with Me, says the Lord.

You are in a short season of adjustment when you will have opportunities to make changes that will more accurately meet your needs and requirements. Stay calm in this time and refuse to allow stress to steal your peace. Wisdom is being poured out in abundance so that you can find the most effective way to deal with every situation, says the Lord. Let Me lead you.
Psalms 29:11 “The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.”

I speak to multitudes when I tell you that your quest for attention and recognition is simply selfish ambition as you seek to express yourself in unique ways. But, My purpose for you is that you become a vessel through whom the expression of My Spirit can flow, unhindered by your flesh. You do not have to clamor and strive for position or compare yourself with others. Simply be what I have created you to be and surrender completely to My purposes in and through you. Even if you happen to acquire the attention you think you need, it is still empty and vain. Establish yourself in secret communion with Me, says the Lord.
John 7:4a “For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly…..”

The accuser of the brethren has risen up to blame you, My people, says the Lord. Set a watch for guilt, shame, and condemnation. Refuse to allow the enemy’s access. Stand strong in truth and in the knowledge of My mercy, favor and grace towards you. This attack is designed to derail and distract you from spiritual concentration. Be strong and keep your focus.
Psalms 86:5 “For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.”

This is a time when you will realize in practical terms the spiritual law of sowing and reaping. Many things are coming to completion or culmination, and you will be able to identify and begin to understand the conclusion of your harvest. Not everyone will reap with joy, but those who reap in sadness will also have an opportunity to begin again. Prepare your heart so that your ground is not hard or fallow, says the Lord.
Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”

Beloved, look for continuing resolution to stubborn problems. You’re making progress, but you are not quite at the point of victory. Much of this has to do with things that are not under your control, but in the hands of other people. Rest assured that I am on your side and with you. The flow of My Spirit will bring you to a place of resolute triumph, says the Lord. Just keep moving, and do not give up.
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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/9/12:
I hear the LORD saying, come and be restored. Allow Me to restore you. Allow Me to strengthen you. Allow Me to bring you fully into My kingdom and the blessings thereof. For, in Me you live, move, and possess your being. Because you are made alive in Me all things are possible to you. All the things that I have given unto you are yours by right, by inheritance, and as you release your faith you shall receive. So, come with renewed hope and expectation. Shake off the doubts and fears that have plagued you and dare once again to believe absolutely. And, in this kingdom you shall thrive and you shall obtain a double portion of My blessings because I am your God; the one who has not only saved you, but the One who has provided for you. Again, I say come. Rejoice in the blessings of this day. Do not allow yourselves to forget this is a time of favor. In this time of favor you can receive by faith all that I have for you in completeness and in absoluteness. Come and receive.

Release yourself from all obsession of soul. Let go of everything that is holding you back from your potential victory. I speak of thoughts that continue to return like a revolving door, which are not in your best interest. You cannot move ahead until you completely relinquish your investment in being a victim. Forgive and forget, says the Lord.
Philippians 3:13 “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.”

Be still and discern what it is that hinders your walk in the Spirit. There are people you must forgive and issues that you have to release in order to be free enough to move in the flow of My Spirit unhindered. But, you must get quiet enough to see and understand how important it is for you to stay clear spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Otherwise, there will be things in the natural realm that will siphon off your physical and spiritual energy. Now is the time to deal with all unrighteousness, says the Lord.
Isaiah 55:7 “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”

I’m looking for a people who I can trust to do My will with purity of heart. They are a people totally dedicated and consecrated to My purposes, who will rise above the flesh and the things of the world to truly walk in the Spirit. They have their ears attuned to My voice, and they follow carefully every directive without selfish pride or personal motive or need for approval. I am looking for a people who will be the people called by My name, says the Lord.
Isaiah 42:6-9 “I, the LORD, have called You in righteousness, and will hold Your hand; I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, as a light to the Gentiles, to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison house. I am the LORD, that is My name; and My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to carved images. Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

Beloved, I want you to listen for My voice. I want to speak encouragement to your soul and to direct you to higher places in the realm of the spirit. I want to give you wisdom and revelation of My kingdom, says the Lord. But, I need you to open your heart to receive all that I have for you, to quiet your soul, and perceive spiritually. Silence your flesh; listen, hear, and understand what I am saying to you.
John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”

Stand by to receive the wisdom you need to solve nagging and difficult problems. I will give you the solutions you need, and I will bring peace to your troubled soul.

I prophesy to you, My people, that indeed it shall be that you shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Not only in the land of the living but the land in which you live. The space that you occupy in this earth belongs to you. It is yours to rule over. For, I have given you the power of My Spirit and by that power comes the dominion of the Holy One. So, rise up and take control. Remove the chaos in your lives. Establish the peace of God. Live and dwell in the joy of God. Understand that I am for you. I will not forsake you. I will not ever leave you without help in this land. You are called for such a time as this, says the Lord God.

You have been made kings and priests to rule and reign with Me in My kingdom. I have given you the authority to rise up in the face of adversity and gain the victory. Exercise your authority, and I will put the enemy under your feet. Don’t let the devil get you down, says the Lord. Be strong, courageous, and triumphant.
Romans 16:19-20 “For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen”.
