THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/31/14:
This day I have opened doors for you to be free. I have made a way for you to establish your freedom. Activate the authority that I have given you, by faith, and walk in the way of it. You will find that you are on a fast track to a new position of spiritual life, joy and peace. It is My purpose to always bring you into victory, says the Lord. Fight for it!

Go up! And, as you ascend, things will rapidly begin to change as the chains of the past are broken. Freedom will come when you defeat the powers of darkness that have established strongholds in your life. Then, old bondages will never be able to hold you again. This is a new day, a new time, and a new season in which you can experience great freedom, says the Lord.
Galatians 5:1 “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”

I am calling you to a higher level of spiritual insight. But, in order for you to embark on this spiritual progression, you must first purify yourself so that your focus is not compromised by desiring things of the world. Your desire must be set on kingdom destiny, purpose, and benefits, says the Lord. Be single-minded!
James 4:8 “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”

Keep your eyes wide open, and do not fall asleep in this time of potential growth and spiritual development. Watch and be amazed at the signs that I will show you — things that are undeniably My work around you, says the Lord. And, when you don’t understand the meaning of the sign, ask Me what it means, and I will give you the interpretation. You will be delighted with all that I will show you if you are aware and pay close attention.
Acts 2:19a “I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath.”

You have been given the light of the revelation of My kingdom, says the Lord. There is no reason for you to allow darkness to rule. Rise up in the strength of truth and life, and push back the powers of darkness that encroach. Establish yourself in righteousness, for I have given you authority over all evil. Live in the light!
Luke 11:36 “If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.”

Ask for wisdom in your current dilemma, and I will show you how to proceed. I will reveal pieces of the puzzle that you have not yet considered, says the Lord. Trust Me to take you in a proper progression so that nothing is lost, stolen or destroyed that is still of value. My ways always bring life and liberty to all concerned. Be strong and persevere.
And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance, character; and character, hope. (Romans 5:3-4)
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/24/14:
I see where you have camped out. But, the cloud is moving. The cloud is going before you, so get up and go with Me, and you will have no regrets. For, I am leading you to a higher place than you have ever been. Your discernment in this season will grow greatly, and your ability to seek and find Me will rise to a place that you have never understood. You will know in your heart, without any doubt, that I am for you and with you. I am leading you, guiding you, protecting you, and I will provide for you. Healing will come. The healing waters will flow. The flow of the Spirit is increasing in these days. So, come into agreement with My purposes and come with Me on this journey, says the Lord.

Do not react emotionally to recent and unexpected developments. Ask for wisdom and yield to My directives. Stand strong in righteousness, and exercise your authority to bind the works of the enemy. Resist every form of evil that tries to intrude. I have given you power over darkness, says the Lord.
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Put away all harshness, and let sensitivity arise so that you will be able to discern spiritual truth and reality. T he gifts of the Spirit do not operate when your carnal nature rules. Nor, can the fruit of the Spirit grow to maturity in such an environment. You can be strong without being judgmental, strict, unpleasant and unkind. Let My nature rule, says the Lord.
John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”

Beloved, it is My desire that you break free from all bondage and access the benefits of redemption, says the Lord. The price has been paid, and the way to absolute liberty has been opened to you. But, you must turn your focus from self-interest and selfish ambition to surrender yourself to My purposes alone, seeking things above and not things of the earth. You need to get your priorities in order if you want to succeed in the things that matter.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 3/19/14:
Do not despair when things are hidden from your sight or beyond the scope of your understanding. This is a time to trust Me with all things because nothing is hidden from Me, says the Lord, and I am your strength and your shield. It is My power that undergirds you. I will reveal the truth of every situation in due time. Establish yourself in peace.
Mark 4:22 “For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 3/18/14:
There are plenty of reasons for you to see your life as less than perfect or even very bleak, but I want you to realize that your pilgrimage in the world is temporary. You have heard the phrase “hope springs eternal”, and I want to assure you that I have given you the ability to rise up in hope regardless of your circumstances. But, you must choose to trust Me and have faith in My ability to bring you through every difficulty. Position yourself to be an overcomer and believe in Me more than you believe your hardships, says the Lord. I am with you in all things.
Psalms 31:24 “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the LORD.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS —3/17/014:
God says, some of your involvements include things that you ought not be involved in, and they are dragging you down. They are keeping you in a place of bondage. My instruction to you is stop those things that I am putting My finger on so that you are not negatively effected by them the rest of your life. For, these are the days where opportunities to come higher exist and where the greater realm of My presence is available to you. So, choose between these two things. If you check your spiritual level you will know that which is wrong, and then you can put those things aside as you resolve to go up higher.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS —3/17/14:
Make every effort to stay surrendered and spiritually focused. There is a wide variety of things that can and will take you off course if you let your guard down and allow your mind to wander. Watch for all manner of seduction that will cause you to deviate from My perfect plan and purpose for your life, says the Lord. Keep looking up.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 3/14/14:
Take time to examine what I have given you in the way of gifts, talents, and opportunities. Then, be aware that I will show you ways to move forward by taking those things to a higher and more efficient level. You will experience growth and greater maturity that can astound you as you extend yourself beyond the barriers of previous expectations, says the Lord. Let Me transport you to the outer limits.
Isaiah 55:9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.

Be aware that there is a separation of wheat from chaff–this is a separation of what is relevant and purposeful from the irrelevant. That which is no longer useful to your spiritual position will be stripped away for the purpose of establishing purity. Clarity is the result of your process of becoming clear, clean and transparent in who you are and what you do, says the Lord. Let this process have free rein in your life.
Luke 3:17 “His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather the wheat into His barn; but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire.”

I have opened a door to the season ahead of you. It will be a time when you will be able to see and understand spiritual truth with greater clarity–a season of freedom from bondage and past difficulties that will bring refreshment to your soul. You stand at the very threshold of a new beginning, but you must first put the past firmly behind before you can move ahead. Let go of everything that is holding you back, says the Lord.
Philippians 3:12-14 “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

I am moving My people to higher spiritual ground. In order for you to be part of that company, you must individually release others from offense and division. My Body is not fragmented; it is a whole unit. You must forgive each other and love one another in righteousness from a pure heart, says the Lord. Only then will you be available to advance spiritually.
1 Peter 1:22 “Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/10/14:
I see you. I know you. I know the struggles that you have gone through. I have seen and known the curses that have come upon you. I see and know the plan of the enemy against you. I know all of these things because I am God. But, please understand that it is not My will for you to suffer at the hand of the enemy. And, that is why I have given you the Holy Spirit of anointing who will rest upon you and empower you to be that which I have called you to be so that these works that I have done you can do. And it comes down to this point: Children of God, all you have to do is believe that all things are possible that I have spoken of regarding My people and it shall be so with you, says the Lord.
Rise up! Shout with a voice of joy. Get over the defeat of compromise, the defeat of heaviness, the defeat of infirmity, and those things that hold you and keep you from My purposes. For, when I do this extraordinary and great work in this season, it is My company of redeemed that shall arise and they shall be the chosen ones that go forth into battle to destroy the works of the enemy. They will shake themselves free from every yoke which has been put upon them. In My name, do the work. And, I Myself, shall be with you to confirm that work with signs and wonders following.

Follow the dictates of integrity. Let righteousness rule in your heart so that you can behave according to your belief in the truth of My Word. It is important that you, as a representative of My kingdom, can be trusted. Set yourself to live up to the standards that I have set for you, says the Lord, and I will empower you to do all that I have set before you.
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Take a mental inventory of your life and its various components to determine how you are influenced and how you influence others. The goal of this examination is to clear out those things that are unclean or impure–things that defile. Make the internal decision to surrender fully to the leading of My Spirit, says the Lord. I will transport you into a place of righteousness that you have yet to experience.
James 3:17 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”

This is a time when the fruit of the past five years will come to maturity. To understand this you may have to examine the theme of that time period and be particularly sensitive and discerning as to what it has produced. Prepare yourself for a new beginning when old things will lose their importance and your interest. You will have prime opportunities to turn your thoughts more completely to spiritual things and your relationship with Me, says the Lord.
Psalms 5:3 “My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.”

Beloved, let the light of My truth shine in you to expose the darkest recesses of your being. There are still things hidden that must be revealed for the purpose of setting you completely free, says the Lord. Righteousness must be restored before your own light can shine unhindered by the darkness of carnal living. Set your heart on purity.
Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”.

When you find yourself in a position of correcting others, make sure that you do not do so from a haughty position, or one of lording your power over them. Rather, keep an attitude of humility that stems from a desire to help and strengthen others. Problem-solving is most effective when all parties involved are assured of their liberty and equality. Exercise your respect for others, says the Lord.
Philippians 2:3 “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/3/14:
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying: You have heard, now apply My word. You have seen and, therefore, know the way that is prepared for you. Walk in that way, and all things will come to a place of victory in your life. For, if you have recognized your potential in Me this day then that foundation of faith, that great foundation of faith, will release all things that are necessary for you to live a victorious life. Your faith will be intact when the devil comes in like a flood, and you will raise up the standard of victory even before he comes into your house. So, run to the wall, raise the standard and declare your freedom. Declare that you are victorious in all situations, ruling over your circumstances, for they shall come to a place of application and accountability in Me. And, when that happens it will become an opportunity for you to come higher than ever before.

You can make great progress spiritually at this time, but you must be willing to let go of everything that will keep you where you are. Your stubborn refusal to hang on to whatever represents comfort or security will become a stumbling block to your own personal liberty. Be willing to rise up from where you’ve been and soar in the Spirit on your thermals of faith, says the Lord.
Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
