THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/29/13:
I am calling on you to come away with Me. I’m calling you to come out of that which bothers you, hinders you and troubles you. Yes, indeed, I am calling you into the secret place of My habitation. And, from this place the wells of living water flow. In that flow comes My presence. And, with My presence comes healing, help, deliverance and all that you require. Come dwell in My presence; come and abide; come be renewed. Allow My peace to invade your spirit. Allow Me to encourage you. Allow Me to strengthen you. Allow Me to heal you. Allow Me to be your help in this time of trouble. Come for I am calling you to come apart and to walk with Me this day in the presence of My glory, says the Most High.

Look up and out from where you now stand spiritually, for there is an expansion of insight and understanding underway. Look beyond where you are and rise above those things that have been dark and gloomy. There is no cause for discouragement or depression. Rise up now to seek and to know My will and purposes. What’s done is done, and now you must change your mindset and position, says the Lord. I am with you to guide you through the maze of emotions that have kept you in darkness.

There is nothing hidden from Me, and I see your heart and your desire to walk in perfection in My kingdom.

These are pivotal times when there will be a decided break from the past as I open the way to a new phase of existence, says the Lord. You will be able to move forward more freely as old restrictions are removed. I will give you the wisdom necessary to restructure portions of your life so that you can operate more completely in the realm of divine order. You are My beloved, and I am with you.

Come into My peace, says the Lord. Do not allow stress to take you out of spiritual perfection and flow. Be calm and trust Me to perfect those things that concern you. I am with you and will bring you through in great victory. Let your heart erupt in praise and thanksgiving for that which I am doing. I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward. Do not be afraid.

I will show you ways to get in order so that you will be more efficient and effective in all that you have been given to do. Simplicity is the order of the day. Be open and sensitive to My leading in this regard. I would have you be unencumbered to the extent that you can focus more fully on spiritual matters and spend more time with Me, says the Lord. I am calling you to come and dine.
Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/22/13:
The Lord God Himself comes to be one with you. This visitation and that which comes in these days will be overwhelming to you when the fullness of it falls and invades your soul and your spirit. For, the Lord Himself desires to come to you in unexpected ways; in glorious ways to bring His favor into your life. And, when that favor comes understand that it will remove you from the heartache of the past and those seasons that have been difficult. For, the hardness will fade away with the love and the glory of the Lord God Almighty as He desires to be one with you; to bless you, heal you, deliver you, prosper you, to lead and guide you in all of your ways. So, this day shake off the chains, break out of bondage. No longer be bound to what the enemy has done in the past season. But, now be renewed in the spirit of your mind so you understand what the perfect will of the Lord is. Understand that He comes to you out of love, and He has no condemnation for you. And, He would say to you, “Rise up now and walk in the newness of this life that comes and is being given in this hour. For, I have come to give you life not only everlasting, but life and joy and peace now. Come and prosper in your soul, in your heart, in your spirit. Be connected to Me. Stay with Me. I will lead you and guide you in the path of those things that have been prepared for you. I am the Lord of Glory–the Lord God who watches over you. I am the Lord God of your life, and I have come to set you in order so that you may receive the blessings of this time.”

Do not allow provocation to cause you to react in the flesh or set you back spiritually. Wrong attitudes and behavior patterns will take you out of the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord. The test is to see whether or not what you proclaim or believe is genuine. You are My living epistle, an open book for all to read. Let others see Me in you.
2 Corinthians 3:2 “You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men.”

I am bringing greater clarity in distinguishing the difference between faith and hope. Your prayers must be established in absolute faith, without any doubt whatsoever; according to My will, says the Lord. If you find that you are in a double-minded position, take the time and effort to suss out any place of fear or unbelief that would undermine your faith. Then, make the necessary corrections so that whatever you ask in My name will be done.
James 1:5-8 ” If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

Everything that manifests outwardly begins in the heart. Don’t allow your heart to become defiled by hardness or bitterness of soul. Be purified and liberated from everything that would hold you in bondage, says the Lord. Let sanctification and honor have it’s perfect work as you take control of your thoughts and emotions.
Matthew 12:33-37 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Continue to follow Me and do what is right in every situation. You know the difference between right and wrong, and you can choose to be righteous. Refuse to give in to any temptation that would result in attitudes or actions that are contrary to My character and nature. I have called you to be one with Me, and when we are unified My thoughts will be your thoughts, and your actions will follow, 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.”

I would have you take the land for My kingdom, says the Lord. But, I speak to you in spiritual terms. There are parts of your heart that have become bitter and hardened because of the difficulties you have faced. Those hard places of discouragement, rejection, and frustration must be plowed up like fallow ground and planted with seeds of faith and trust. You must take the ground of your own heart before you can do the external work.
Hosea 10:12 “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/15/13:
I have, indeed, called each of you My friend. Have you heard My voice calling to you? For, if you have heard My whispers, I have called you to come near. Let us walk together in this place of friendship, this place of unity of soul and spirit. Come to Me all you who are heavy laden and relieve your burden. For, I will take it from you and give you joy and gladness. I will give you the favor that is yours to receive in this time. Please understand that I am keeping no one, not even one of you, from this position of favor. It is the time in which I have chosen to bless My people. Rise up as on the wings of eagles today, and may it be that you gather the courage that is necessary to walk from where you are right now into the place of glory, into the habitation of My presence. Come and walk with Me. Come and trust Me. Relieve yourself of unworthiness and condemnation. I shall clothe you with new garments. I shall wash you as you have never been washed before, thereby perfecting you. You shall indeed go forth from victory to victory because it is your destiny, says the Lord.

Beloved, I call you out of darkness into light; from despair to hope. You don’t have to minimize the difficult days of the past, but you must leave those days behind and move forward in the faith that prevails over the powers of darkness and oppression. Look up, and let your spiritual vision be restored. I will lead you to victory, says the Lord.
Matthew 9:29 “Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” ”

You are about to have significant breakthrough in a number of areas in your life and circumstances. But, you must believe that I am telling you the truth, says the Lord, and position yourself spiritually for success. You have had to face many challenges that have been not only difficult but daunting. Now, you will begin to move out of that wilderness experience.
Hosea 2:15 “I will give her her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.”

Don’t give up! Hold on to your faith. Even though the path seems unfamiliar and even treacherous at times, you must continue on. I have gone before you to make the crooked places straight and to remove dangerous obstacles from your way. Be strong and unwavering in your belief that I will perfect those things that concern you, says the Lord.
Isaiah 45:2 “I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.”

Be on the lookout for weapons formed against your soul, particularly your emotions. The enemy wants to not only distract you from spiritual endeavors, but wants to disable your desire to walk in the Spirit. Watch particularly for depression, condemnation, frustration and outrage. You will feel completely justified in allowing these expressions to manifest, but it would not be in your best interest, says the Lord. Exercise self-control.
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness if from Me, says the Lord.”

Make a special effort to stay present with Me, says the Lord. Resist the temptation to dwell on the past, and deliberately let go of all failures and regrets. Walk with Me here and now even though your tendency will also be to race ahead and try to see what the future holds. There are things that you need to see and deal with right here where you are now. Let me show you and give you wisdom.
Psalms 84:5 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/8/13:
I will bless you if you will come to Me and believe. I will prosper you in new ways in this season. I, Myself, will be your guiding light. I will be your healer and deliverer. For, it is the set time of favor. I will come and accomplish that which you can believe for, because it is by faith that you receive all that the Father offers you in His kingdom. So, come this day by faith. Ask and it shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and My door shall open to you, says the Lord.

I am bringing you to another level of commitment, but you must abandon religious exercise and man’s traditions to seek life in the Spirit. I am opening the treasures of walking in the Spirit as you choose to be obedient to the revelation of spiritual reality being unveiled. The blessings will be beyond what you could think or ask if you refuse to go back to what is familiar, says the Lord.
Luke 12:48b “For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.”

Beloved, examine and enumerate the issues that are a concern to you. Then, deliberately release them to Me, with faith in knowing that I will bring those things to completion in perfect order; just as I am also revealing those things in you that must come to justice and correction, says the Lord. Do not despise this time of sanctification and purification.
Psalms 138:8 “The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.”

Do not despair, I will make a way even in the midst of your wilderness experience. You are a pilgrim passing through, and this is a temporary matter. In terms of the eternal kingdom this is momentary. Refuse to give this situation more prominence than it deserves. Let Me lead you through this time of correction and need, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 4:17 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”

Your time of transition will be over soon. Just a few more points of preparation will put you in a position of moving ahead. Take a solid stand of faith and trust in Me, says the Lord, and face the final steps of this process with patience, assurance, and certainty that My will is being accomplished in your circumstances.
2 Timothy 1:12 “For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.”

Approach uncertainty with faith that I am with you directing your steps. Nothing is uncertain to Me or in My kingdom. I know the beginning from the end, and you can trust Me to lead you in the way you should go. I am for you and not against you. Maintain peace in all things, says the Lord.
Psalms 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/1/13:
I would have you, My people, to understand that resurrection power is available to you — the power of the kingdom to bear. The power of the authority of Christ has been given to you; use that authority; use that power. Fight the good fight of faith. Overcome all the works of the enemy that are against you. Live in freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of your joy in the kingdom of an Almighty God, who has made the way for you. All you have to do is walk in the way that has been prepared. Walk in truth. Walk in the glory of a great salvation. Walk in My presence day to day remembering the price has been paid. Do not forget the benefits that you have been given. For, the Lord says, what I have acquired and what I have laid hold of, I did for you. Get it spiritually. Press on! Never give up, never sit down, and do not allow yourself to be discouraged. I say, push toward the mark of the high calling in Christ, the Lord of glory.

Draw close to Me. Let us be one, with no separation or division between us. My desire is that your heart and mind would come into complete unity with Me, says the Lord, for this is the place of absolute righteousness and peace. You can choose to position yourself to be in this perfect union so that you are never in opposition to My will.
John 17:21 “That they all may be one, as you, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.”
