I am releasing a wave of extraordinary grace that will see you through the weeks ahead. For, I will indeed empower you to do what is necessary to fulfill that which is required of you. This is a time to lean on Me for strength and wisdom. Do not forget that I am your help in times of trouble, so you must not depend on your own understanding. Rather, rise up in the supernatural realm of the Spirit to gain insight and spiritual support, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my weakness, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Raise up a standard of faith in the midst of your circumstances. Take every opportunity to trust Me with all of your heart. Refuse to allow negativity, doubt, or unbelief to undermine your rock-solid faith, says the Lord. Face your fears and overcome. The outcome of your situation depends on it! Be strong and resilient even in great difficulty. I am with you to bring you through to victory.

Beloved, I am taking you to a high place where I will reveal more of who you are in Me. Even though you have come a long ways, there is yet more to be revealed. Be prepared to navigate through places that are unfamiliar and uncomfortable. As greater revelation of My kingdom is made known to you, you will have to make the necessary adjustments that will allow for more complete unity with Me and those who belong to Me, says the Lord.
Psalm 133:1-3 “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing-Life forevermore.”

When you find yourself in a position of misunderstanding or an altercation, your first instinct is to fight for the victim position so that you do not have to take the blame. But honestly if you do this, it will only make the problem worse. I call you to take the position of humility and integrity instead of trying to protect your tenuous and questionable innocence. Be the first to apologize for your part in the division, says the Lord, for in doing so you will be able to defuse the situation.
Matthew 5:23-26 “Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 11/26/12:
I have brought you into the kingdom, for such a time as this, that you might grow exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that you can imagine or think of as My work is being developed and demonstrated in you. For, I am the Lord of glory. I am about to bring you into the glory of the end of the age. Strengthen yourself. When I call to you be ready. When I send, you go. When I say to you, sit down, please do so. When I say arise and go forth, do that as well. Understand that in this season I will make Myself known to you in ways that you have not known Me before. So, arise to the task and allow your faith to soar. This is a time when the greatest of My people shall arise to their positions of glory and demonstration by the power of faith, says the Lord.

Guard your heart, and do not allow the systems of the world to divide your affections. Your dedication to Me and My kingdom must be as strong and sure as eternity. Temporary conditions and demands cannot take preeminence, so you have to watch for all manner of seduction that would take you away from spiritual reality, says the Lord.
Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Make a determination that you are hidden in Me, says the Lord; that your life is not your own, but you belong to Me completely. Everything you think, say, or do must come from the wellspring of My life in you. Do not wear your Christianity as a badge of honor, but be humble and let the depth of your commitment be intimate and sacred. I see the secret place of your heart and the strength of your dedication to My kingdom, and I will reward you.
Romans 14:5-6 “One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.”

Beloved, take your stand on My Word and allow nothing to undermine your faith in any way. Be aware that the enemy will do what he can to cause you to entertain doubt or fear that will abort My plans and purposes, says the Lord. Nothing is impossible with Me. Only believe!
Matthew 17:20 “So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

You will be tested by hindrances and tempted with impatience. Stay calm and move as efficiently through your circumstances as possible and avoid stress as much as you can. Desperate times call for desperate measures, but emotional desperation will only produce chaos. You must do whatever it takes to stay in peace and show mercy, says the Lord.
Psalms 18:25 “With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; with a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless.”

When your emotions tend to be like a roller coaster ride, stop and let My truth prevail. Stand on the firm foundation of My Word and refuse to allow discouragement or disappointment to plunge you into darkness. Stay in the light. I am with you to establish you in peace and strengthen your heart, says the Lord. Be strong and determined to press through!

Rejoice that I am with you and among you, says the Lord. I have called you to be a light in the darkness, and you shall shine and bring My glory into every situation if you will only surrender to My leading. Do not despair when you see darkness and godlessness all around you, for I tell you honestly that the deeper and more profound the darkness, the more prevalent your light. Shine on!
Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Being taken out of your comfort zone is an opportunity to hear and see things that you normally would miss. When you get too comfortable in your surroundings and in your routine you can take things for granted and get lazy in your discernment. Set yourself to be watchful and pay attention so you won’t miss the nuances. The spiritual benefits will far outweigh the discomfort of your present situation, says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 16:13 “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong”.

There is yet another shift in the realm of the Spirit. This shift will bring you into a solid place of truth and righteousness. Every point of error and presumption will be brought into question. Allow Me to bring a course correction and so that you can once again enjoy the flow like being carried by the River of God. All you have to do is yield to My plans, My purposes, and My destiny, says the Lord, which will bring great blessing and reward.
Isaiah 40:10 “Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.”

Watch for key events and situations that have the potential to either strengthen or weaken your faith. You will find that you have a choice in what you will think and believe. My desire is for you to put your faith in Me in every situation and circumstance and that regardless of what you are facing you will trust in the truth of My Word. I would have you think about what will edify you and those around you, says the Lord. Do not be afraid; I am with you to deliver you.
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things”.
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS 11/13/12:
Have you noticed that the spiritual climate of your nation has changed, America? This is because the trauma of the election is over. For those who are disappointed with the results, you must now refocus, or a spirit of heaviness and dread will continue to pursue you. Here is the truth of the matter: You do not live spiritually in the kingdom of the world, which is under the rule of Satan. You live in the Kingdom of Heaven. You are a citizen of the Kingdom of God, and you are living in a time when the kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of our Lord.
Revelation 11:15 “Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
The national election is past, but I am now calling for a kingdom election. Just as the nation voted, so you must also vote. You must choose whom you will now serve.
Joshua 24:15 “And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
You are living in the end times, and all things will take place as it is written in My Word, says the Lord.
2 Peter 1:10 “Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble.”

In a vision I saw a screen used to sift gravel, and I heard to Lord say: “You are in a process of refining, which requires sifting to remove from your nature all that is coarse. I am particularly dealing with that which is abrasive and offensive to others. You would do well to yield to this process, because the days ahead will go much smoother in your relationships if you will allow this work,” says the Lord.
Proverbs 17:3 ” The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, But the LORD tests the hearts.

I have revealed and continued to reveal the strength of your faith in difficult circumstances. You must make a conscious effort to put your trust in Me in the midst of transition and chaos. Seek My face and renew yourself in devotion and dedication to My kingdom. These are precarious times when you must be established in unwavering faith. says the Lord. I am your very present help in times of trouble.
Psalm 46:1-3 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah”

Set your heart on righteousness — right thinking, speaking, and doing. Then you can operate in righteous authority over temptation and the powers of darkness. I am calling forth a people, who are blameless, into refreshing and renewal — a people who will usher in the next outpouring of My Spirit. My Spirit will not rest on those who are compromised and corrupt, but on those whose hearts are yielded completely to Me, says the Lord.
Psalms 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

Beloved, make clear and concise choices that will lead to vitality in My kingdom. This is a time when you can start over on many levels, but the most important new beginning is your life in the Spirit. Choose today to be done with everything that weakens your faith and undermines your spiritual stability. Pledge your allegiance to the Lamb of God. Be set free of bondage that keeps you from walking in the Spirit, says the Lord. Your choices are seeds sown that will produce a harvest. Choose wisely.
2 Peter 1:10-11 “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.”

The battle is not over. You will be required to stand firm and refuse to be moved from a place of peace and faith. I am indeed doing a good work and moving you through your circumstances to resolution, but there is more work to be done. You were hoping your problems would be resolved by now. However, patience and perseverance will be required even though you can see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Be strong and determined to press through even the most dire situations, says the Lord. Trust Me.
James 5:11 “Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord-that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.”

If you will release others from your own expectations of what they need to be or do, breakthrough will come suddenly and solidly. The places in your life where you have gotten stuck and can’t seem to move forward result from thoughts and desires that are apart from My nature and will. Rise up. Be done with unreasonable expectations and be established in the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord. You will not regret this change in course.

I speak to those who have faltered. You began well. What hindered you? You believed the lies of the enemy and allowed him to undermine your faith in the plan and purpose for your life. You have become weary in the battle and have allowed yourself to become feeble. Refuse to sit down, give up, or go back. Stir up your faith again and do not allow anything to interrupt your flow in the Spirit, says the Lord. Rise up and fight the good fight of faith.
Isaiah 35:3-5 “Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you.” Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.”

Rise up in your spirit man. It is time to truly seek the Kingdom of God above all else.

You must build your life on the firm foundation of truth and do the work necessary to stay strong spiritually. Be strong and unwavering in your faith and trust in Me.
Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock; and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
