I call you to take your proper position in My kingdom. You cannot do this as long as you remain self-focused and interested in looking good and finding acceptance. Your position has to do exclusively with having an honest and vital relationship with Me in the Spirit, says the Lord. It is up to you to awaken yourself spiritually in order to become all that I have destined you to be.
John 3:6 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

You have come a very long way, but you must resist the enemy’s attempt to draw you back into old, irrelevant places. More than ever you need to stay present with Me in the here and now. This will be vital in your spiritual progression to the next level of growth and development in My kingdom, says the Lord. Be strong and resolute.
Revelation 12:10 “Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.”

Feeling disconnected is part of the widening gap between My people and the people of the world. You cannot walk in both places; you are either part of My kingdom or not. Those who are righteous by the blood of Christ will become more aware of this disparity. And, it is up to each one to stay on the path of light and life, says the Lord.
2 Timothy 3:12-14 “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them.”

Most of you, My people, are still transitioning into the spiritual and natural position that I have prepared for you. Stay flexible and alert to the leading of My Spirit, for it will be as though I AM taking you by the hand so that you will not miss a step, says the Lord. I AM with you.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 1/25/16:
Gird up the loins of your mind because as you think, as you think in your heart, so you are. You will become that which you are meditating on. You will move into what I AM doing as you begin to believe and process the word that I reveal to you. I will direct you and be with you in unity. And, you will be empowered to gain the victory over all the powers of the enemy. From this moment on begin to believe My word and you will excel in this season, says the Lord.

You are coming into a time that promises to be one of the most significant of your life. It is imperative that you move through this time with precise discernment.

This is a new day, and if you will yield completely to Me, says the Lord, I will put everything right. There are things that still require your attention and will be brought to the forefront so that you can see clearly how to proceed. Trust Me with everything that concerns you. I AM for you and with you.

You are about to launch out on a brand new beginning, which will be filled with exploration and discovery. You can move ahead when you have sufficiently left the past behind.

You have been presented with certain unexpected challenges, which have resulted in a setback. However, this too shall pass. You have not gotten off course, nor has your spiritual focus changed.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

This process has qualified you to receive the rewards of your journey, and it will also allow you a new freedom from those things behind you. You may now begin a new spiritual journey into this season of light. Enjoy the journey.

I will show you things that you need to recognize from your past–things that will reveal a need for correction.

This is an opportunity for freedom and greater spiritual strength.
Revelation 3:19 “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.”

Surround yourself with good things – good people, good spiritual environment, truth, and faith. There are troubling situations around the world, and evil abounds, but you are not of the world. You belong to Me and My kingdom where you can thrive in spite of worldly conditions. Be strong in your convictions and dedication to all that is right and good, says the Lord.

You are not alone. When you do not know where to go from here or what to do next, all you have to do is ask. Ask Me for wisdom and direction, says the Lord. I AM not a God who cannot hear. I see where you are and I know all things about you. You cannot hide from Me. Allow My intervention into your circumstances, and you will have no regrets.

Mount up, says the Lord, and you shall go higher, no longer be earth bound, no longer be troubled by the circumstances that you are walking through. Don’t be troubled by those things that come against you, for I have given you power over all the work of the enemy and over every circumstance that you will find yourself in. So, be encouraged even in this moment that I AM with you. I will never leave you or forsake you. I will lead you, guide you, and anoint you so that you will have victory over all the work of the enemy.

The enemy will use control and manipulation to enforce his will and violate personal space. You can either be a victim or perpetrator. You must refuse the urge to control others. And, do not allow others to manipulate you. As you maintain personal freedom from fleshly impulse and demonic forces, you can be clear enough to follow My leading, says the Lord.

Issues will arise that require your objectivity before your discernment will be accurate. Put aside your personal prejudice in every matter and see through eyes of the Spirit. Only then will you find the truth. When you are emotionally invested, you will only see yourself, says the Lord.

You will begin to enjoy the fruit of your obedience in following My instructions over the past few months. The rewards will be subtle at first and then become more pronounced and finally will become a way of life. Do not discount the power of sowing and reaping, says the Lord. It is a spiritual law.
Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”

I was in the Spirit and saw two mountains with a valley running between them. Someone was standing on an outcropping, a high place overlooking the valley below. Conditions were perfect for his own voice to be echoed back to himself. He began to shout things to encourage himself. He shouted conditions and attitudes that would create victory over his circumstances. He shouted words of faith in God. He shouted what he wanted to become, and strength came into his spirit, soul, and body. The more he shouted, the more he believed, and the stronger he became.
1 Samuel 30:6b “David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.”

The next phase of your spiritual progression is beginning to unfold. Position yourself for the greatest benefit of the season by getting your priorities in order and developing righteous values.

I AM the light that will guide you through the darkness that covers the earth, says the Lord.
John 3:21 “But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
