THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/31/18
Abide in My light! The world is a place of darkness. So, you must live and walk in My light or the darkness will overtake you. My light will lead and guide you through the darkness. Allow My light to illuminate the atmosphere that you live in!

If you will rise up in Spirit and seek My face, I will show you things that are beyond anything you could have imagined. I will bring revelation and answer your deepest questions. I will empower you to do what few have done and will deepen your spiritual understanding in ways that will astound you, says the LORD.
John 16:13 “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”

Put aside all trepidation. Even though you cannot know the future you can know Me, and I hold the future. Draw near. Come into the security of My presence. Whenever you feel afraid trust in Me, says the LORD. When you seek Me, you will find Me and abide in peace. I AM your protection.
Psalm 91:2-5 “I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day.”

There is work to be done and obligations to fulfill before you can be clear enough to move into the next phase of your existence. Forgive those who have offended you and release those who have taken advantage of you. You cannot be free as long as you still harbor disappointment and anger, says the LORD. Let My love abide in your heart and soul.
Ephesians 4:26 “Be angry, and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your wrath.”

Be at peace and stay calm regardless of problems or triumphs. When you lose control do your best to get back on an even keel. Your circumstances will require My wisdom and direction, and all you have to do is ask. Quiet yourself and ask in faith, says the LORD. I AM with you in all things.
James 1:6 “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.”

Take advantage of opportunities that are presented to let go of elements of the past that have kept you from fulfilling your destiny. And prepare yourself to embrace the possibilities of greater fulfillment in My kingdom, says the LORD. It is a time of faith and hope when you can rise above that which has dampened your spirit.
1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/24/18
Prayer: LORD, help us to give ourselves to You and Your purposes in the same Spirit of love that You gave Yourself to us. Anoint us with Your Holy Spirit and help us to allow Him to lead and guide us into all that You have for us. Let us enter this new season with You as our Guide.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”

As deep darkness covers the earth, I have called My people to let your light shine wherever you are and in whatever circumstance you find yourself. Light is the evidence of spiritual life. Your light will be a genuine state of being that cannot be snuffed out because it emanates from your connection to Me, says the LORD.
John 8:12 “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.””

Go beyond yourself to carry out My will. Be My representative. Speak and act as an extension of Me, says the LORD. Be a blessing to others in thought, words and deeds. This is a way for others to have a desire to know Me and to see My heart through you. I seek to use those who are obedient to do all that I ask.
Romans 13:8 “Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.”

Protect and nurture your life in the Spirit. Keep your relationship with Me as your first priority. You need to be able to go the distance without waning, and that will require an eternal perspective. Your natural life on earth is temporary, but your spiritual life is forever. Take care of yourself, says the LORD. Live as one with Me.
John 17:11 “Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.”

You will find safety in the flow of My Spirit. Refuse to allow anyone to distract you from what you know is right to do or where you need to be. There is protection for those who are obedient to My will, says the LORD. In that place of security you will also find peace that is beyond your understanding.
Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Many of you are being worn out by your rigorous routine. The extreme intensity of your daily lives has taken its toll. I would have you moderate your responses to current situations and come into My rest. Find the place of peace by being quiet and calming your soul. Tranquility will bring restoration and renovation to your sense of well-being, says the LORD.
Matthew 11:29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/17/18
If you will learn the art of resistance you will be an overcomer. Your life as a Christian will not be trouble free. However, greater am I in you than the one who is after you. Be encouraged today and know that if you will fight the good fight, victory will be yours.
1 John 4:4 “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

I continue to bring correction in the process of sanctification. It is up to you to receive it in spirit. Remorse can become a thing of the flesh that results in condemnation, which is not My desire and is not good for you. Condemning yourself opens the door for the enemy to exploit in order to keep you from walking and living in My Spirit, says the LORD. You must receive the correction, forgive yourself, and re-establish your spiritual position.
Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

When you do not know what to do or where to go, ask Me for wisdom. You are not going to understand My will by asking other people about it. They don’t know you like I do or care about you as I do. Do not to be afraid to go straight to the Source of your existence and well-being for insight and good judgment. Establish yourself in close relationship by seeking Me often and trusting and depending on Me, says the LORD.
James 1:5 “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.”

Save yourself the agony of disappointment and discouragement by trusting that I will bring you through every challenge. Being overwhelmed will not help you, but faith will. Try to maintain a positive attitude in the face of negative circumstances. Look to Me for help and direction, says the LORD.
Psalm 61:2 “From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”

In a vision I saw an individual climbing a rock wall — absolutely scrambling up the seemingly impossible vertical heights. And, I heard the LORD say, “There are things that have seemed impossible to you or beyond your ability to accomplish. However, I AM calling you to a high place in spirit where relative few of My people will go. I will empower you and even give you supernatural strength to do what I have set before you. Just take the first step.”
Psalm 148:1 “Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise Him in the heights!”

Watch for a further separation between those who are completely devoted to Me and those who have a casual religious connection. I AM calling My sheep to a high and unsurpassed, pristine feeding ground where they can feast on My word with a revived spiritual appetite. I call you by name and invite you to follow Me to this high place, says the LORD.
2 Corinthians 6:17 “Therefore, come out from among them and be separate, says the LORD. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/10/18
Remember Me. Keep yourself in Me! If you do this, I will be with you to lead and guide and bless you. I am going to reveal myself to those who love Me in more profound ways and in vivid expression in the days ahead. Position yourself in faith so that you can see and hear Me, says the LORD.

I am looking for those whose hearts are not satisfied with status quo. To those who have a desire to know Me better, I will open to you greater spiritual understanding that will take you deeper, higher and wider. I will take you beyond your old boundaries, and you will be astounded at what you can see and know, says the LORD.
Isaiah 54:2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.”

I speak to those who have allowed your heart to be hardened in certain aspects of life. Will you allow your heart to be softened by My Spirit? Will you be willing to give yourself permission to walk in love? I will reveal your heart to you so that you can see clearly where you need to forgive and release, says the LORD. I want to hold your heart in My hands.
Hebrews 3:13 “but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”

Beloved, don’t be afraid. I am with you to show you the way — to direct your steps so that you fulfill My will in your life, says the LORD. Put your trust in Me as you quiet your soul and give turmoil no place. These are important days in your progression and transition from where you have been to a more complete expression of who you really are. Prepare to move forward.
1 Peter 1:7 “that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

In a vision I saw a turtle retract its head and legs into its shell, and I heard the LORD say: “This is a time when you need to retreat from external chaos and establish yourself in a place of peace and quiet. If you are to hear My still, small voice you must be silent. Quiet your flesh and seek tranquility.”
Zechariah 2:13 “Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD, for He is aroused from His holy habitation!”

Please know that when people spew hatred and vitriol into the atmosphere, they are sowing bad seed and corruption into the spiritual environment. And, I tell you the truth that the harvest is in full swing. You wonder why things feel so bleak; this is the reason. Begin to sow seeds of peace for your future well-being, says the LORD.
Job 4:8 “Even as I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/3/18
Do not become spiritually dull. Stir yourself up by reminding yourself of who you are. Come and be one with Me. I will lead and guide you into this season. This can be a time of spiritual growth for you if you so choose. The path of life for this season is before you. Come and take this journey with Me.
Ephesians 5:8 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the LORD. Walk as children of light.”

What you think and do in these days will have an extraordinary impact on the days ahead. Therefore, you should take the condition of your soul and spirit very seriously and make necessary corrections to achieve the best possible outcome. This is no time to be glib or frivolous. Your future depends on it, says the LORD.
Proverbs 24:12 “If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?”
