I sensed something ominous in the atmosphere. It was like forces of darkness gathering for an assault. I saw clouds gathering above — high up in the atmosphere, and the clouds became one swirling mass like the beginning of a funnel cloud forming, but not yet touching down. I could feel the presence of God as if He was brooding over His people–calling us to a place of safety in Him. There was a pleading–almost urgently–for us to be ready and stay ready.
2 Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/29/15:
If you will abide in Me I will abide in you. I will keep you in safe habitations. I will bless you when the world is not blessed. I will give you the opportunities to know Me better. I will bring you forth as an end-of-days generation into the power that I have reserved for such a time as this. So, find yourself in the unity of the Spirit. Find yourself walking with Me. Find yourself in a position of conversation with Me. Find yourself one with Me in these very perilous times, says the Lord.

Take inventory and see where your forward momentum has stalled. When you stop taking ground from the enemy your victory diminishes. Make a concerted effort to recover your desire to progress. I will give you the wisdom and the strength to do all that is required, says the Lord.
1 Timothy 4:15 “Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.”

Many of you have recoiled from what you have endured in recent months and years. You have been traumatized by the difficulties that you have had to face. But, I tell you honestly that your much-needed healing is available and accessible to you. Come to Me in confidence and faith, says the Lord, and set your heart to receive all that you need to be emotionally whole again.
Romans 5:1-2 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Quiet your soul and be sensitive to My leading, for I will bring you by a way that you would never have imagined. You have personal resources, talent and gifts, that you have barely tapped. I will give you opportunities to use what I have given you to bless and encourage others, says the Lord. The world is full of darkness, but you must allow My light to shine in and through you.
Matthew 5:14-15 “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.”

Be humble and avoid conflict. Refuse to allow a haughty spirit to cause you to act or respond inappropriately. Pride will only escalate the problem and create more trouble. These are times when a soft answer will turn away wrath. Exercise self-control and show respect to those around you, says the Lord, and I will undertake on your behalf.
Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.”

In a vision I saw a soft, gentle rain falling on those who are at rest, completely surrendered to the LORD. The rain was filling cisterns that had become empty and dry. There was a sense of refreshment on every level–a healing of body and soul, memories and emotions; rejuvenation of the spirit. It was beautiful, sweet, pure life. I sensed a time of restoration and renewal by this rain of the Spirit coming to God’s people.
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/55/15:
Have you forgotten that I know every condition of your life? Have you forgotten that I know about you; that I’m not far from you? Do you know that I am for you? I know the circumstances that are adverse that you are dealing with in your life. I know the trouble that you have. I know the infirmity that you have. All of these things I know, but this one thing you must do — you must submit them to Me. Bring them to Me in a complete and absolute faith so that I can intervene in your situation and My power will be manifest in your life. So today, lift your eyes. Call upon My name. It is My desire for you to live in absolute victory in all things, says the Lord.

I speak to many when I say that you have constructed walls or barriers around yourself for protection, but they have also become a restriction. As long as you stay in your comfortable confines, you will not be able to see how to grow or move forward. Every season of progression involves risk, but the rewards will be worth taking the risk. Trust that I will protect you, 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.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/19/15:
Pay attention to your thought life and to what you do, and make a determination to separate the things that are vital from things that are a waste of time. This will help you define and refine what you believe and who you are so that you are more closely aligned with My purposes for you, says the Lord. Stay out of the shadows and walk in the light.
Jeremiah 15:19 “Therefore thus says the LORD: “If you return, then I will bring you back; you shall stand before Me; if you take out the precious from the vile, you shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, but you must not return to them.””

Many of you, My people, have been through a time of severe testing. Your experiences and trials have left you feeling shaky and unstable. Now is the time to lean on Me. I am your place of stability and strength. Come. Trust Me to make you strong as you build your life on the firm foundation of faith and truth, says the Lord.
Psalm 107:25-29 “For He commands and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of the sea. They mount up to the heavens, they go down again to the depths; their soul melts because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still.”

My eyes are searching the earth to find and reward those who are faithful. I seek those who are reliable and trustworthy in establishing My kingdom–those who are stable and stand firm in the truth without wavering. I am looking for true believers who are not only hearers but doers of My Word, says the Lord. These are one with Me.
Psalms 101:6 “My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks in a perfect way, he shall serve me.”

There are things in your life that need to be fixed or adjusted — things that just aren’t working right. Now is a good time to deal with these issues. If you don’t know exactly what to do or how to do it, let Me show you, says the Lord. If you allow Me, I will take the lead, establish the direction, and order your steps.
Psalms 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.”

Beloved, I want you to get in the habit of doing good. I would have you express your goodness and kindness to someone else. Do it deliberately from your heart, whether it is a word or an act of kindness. Do it often, so that it becomes part of your nature, says the Lord.
Psalms 37:3 “Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/12/15:
Find yourself in Me as you identify with My character and nature and embrace the truth of My Word. Be one with Me, and make My kingdom a priority so that you may prosper in all things. When your identity if found in what you do and what you have in the world, you are divided in your loyalties. You cannot serve two masters. Choose today who you will serve, 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.”

It is important for you to maintain peace in your personal environment even when chaos abounds and surrounds you. Protect yourself by establishing internal order, and avoid chaotic encounters as much as possible. Do what you can to stay calm even in the midst of a storm, says the Lord. Trust Me to protect you.
Exodus 15:13 “You in Your mercy have led forth the people whom You have redeemed; You have guided them in Your strength to Your holy habitation.”

In a vision, I saw angels standing on both sides of a gate above the earth. They were blowing their trumpets and I heard the Lord say, “Come and enter here. Do not live as an earth dweller; live as a kingdom dweller on the earth. I am calling you to live in the power of My Spirit so that you can represent Me and My kingdom.”
Colossians 3:1-2 “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

You need a time of rejuvenation. It would be good for you to have times of rest and relaxation, but your restoration comes from seeking Me and being in My presence. Come deliberately to Me in spirit and receive all that you need, says the Lord. Do not delay.
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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/8/15:
Today, is a day for a fresh start – a new beginning. For those who have heard My word and heard My desire; for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see, I will take you further into the realm of My kingdom than ever. In the excitement of that which you see and know, you will be compelled to live and flourish in the kingdom of Almighty God. So, I say to you today, begin again. Begin in the strength and the power that I provide. Become one with Me and walk with Me, and your life will take on a brand new, fresh meaning, says the Lord.

Let Me hae your heart, says the Lord. I’m not asking for a piece of your heart. I’m asking for your whole heart. You know the difference between loving someone and loving someone with your whole heart. I want you to love Me with your whole heart–nothing held back. I want you to give yourself completely to me. You will not regret your decision to do so.
Mark 12:30 “‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.”

You are entering yet another season of distractions. Don’t fool yourself into believing that distractions are good for you. Stay focused, and stay on track. Take every opportunity to be led by My Spirit and stay connected with Me. That is what is actually good for you both temporarily and eternally, says the Lord. Vacation from your routine should not be a vacation from Me.
Ephesians 2:4-7 “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”

In the midst of difficult challenges, be assured that I am your very present help, says the Lord. I will give you the wisdom necessary for breakthrough on every front. And, I will give instruction and direction. Refuse to allow a fear of failure to undermine your potential victory. Be strong.
Psalms 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/3/15:
Do not stop; do not lose your forward momentum. It is important to keep moving because I cannot direct you when you sit down and refuse to take the next step. Your life has purpose, so do not buy into the lies that bring condemnation. Believe in Me and My ability and willingness to open up the land of promises to you, says the Lord. Get ready to advance.
Jeremiah 7:24 “Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/2/15:
Make sure that your faith is not misplaced, and that you trust Me alone and not people or circumstances. I answer the prayer of faith according to My will, says the Lord. Circumstances will change. People will disappoint you. But, I am the same forever, and My Word is truth and trustworthy.
James 4:3 “You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/1/15:
Get it right with regard to your relationship with Me, says the Lord, and with regard to allowing My Holy Spirit to live and dwell in you. Get your relationship on track – on course. Become one with Me. Walk with Me. Talk with Me, and do those things that I have encouraged you to do, so that I can do the things I said I would do on your behalf. For, this is the season in which I will indeed show you the way into the promise of the land that I have for you. Do it! Today!

Changes are taking place in the realm of the Spirit, and you may find yourself feeling disoriented, disconnected, or even lost. Take this time to seek Me for wisdom and direction. Do not make any major decisions until you are clear and more settled. Refuse to be afraid or allow confusion to become a stronghold. Quiet your soul and be still, says the Lord.
Psalms 46:10 “Be still, and know that I AM God…”
