This is a time when you will have opportunities to re-evaluate areas of your life that need adjusting. The temptation will come to throw everything away and just start over, but that is not the best course of action. Not everything needs change, so you must not overreact and do more than is required. I will give you the wisdom you need to do the right thing, says the Lord.
Proverbs 3:6 “In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/30/15:
I hear the Lord saying, with a tremendous smile, “I am well pleased with you, My people, in this season. You are willing to listen to Me and willing to line up in accordance with that which I speak. You are learning and growing, and you must allow faith to arise to new levels within you. For, it is by faith that you shall survive the times that are ahead. It is by faith that you will continue to prosper in hard times–sometimes filled with great tragedy and dire news. Even in these seasons My people will rise up in faith and praise Me. Trust Me to bring you through all things to a position of victory.”

How you treat others is important to Me, says the Lord. Meanness and hard-heartedness come from the kingdom of darkness, but you belong to Me. I want you to be kind, loving, and forgiving. If you have faith and believe that you belong to Me, your actions need to reflect the light that comes from My kingdom. It is time to make an honest assessment of your behavior and make the necessary adjustments.
Colossians 3:12-14 “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

I will bring you to a level of spiritual maturity that you have not yet achieved if you are willing to move past childish behavior. In your willingness, I will point out moments of petulance–times when you are not reasonable or sensible. I will show you when you are being silly and self-centered so that you can recognize immaturity, have a change of heart, and develop a better attitude, says the Lord. The choice is yours.
1 Corinthians 13:11 “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”

You are in a time of transition between that which is coming to a close and that which is just ahead. There will be a very distinct difference between where you have been and where you are going. You are about to ascend to a higher level of spiritual existence. Letting go of the past is vital to your freedom in moving ahead. Stay clear and clean so that you can hear My voice and discern My leading, says the Lord.
Ephesians 1:4 “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.”

So, you thought this would be easier, but it has become more difficult and complicated than expected. Do not despair or give up. Ask for wisdom and direction. I know the way you should go, and I will establish you in divine order as you yield to the leading of My Spirit, says the Lord. Let Me establish your steps and direct you to a good outcome.
Psalms 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”

I have brought to your attention the futility and fragility of earthly life and values. Allow difficult circumstances to divide and separate light and darkness, truth and error, as well as eternal and temporary so that your hope will be in Me alone, says the Lord, and not in things of the earth. Make sure that your emotions and decisions reflect spiritual life and not your carnal nature.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/23/15:
My people have asked for wisdom. And, because they have asked I am revealing to them the process of My purposes, in these days, so that they can indeed be who they are called to be. So they can rise to the occasion; so they can rise up to that which I have called them to be; so that I can reveal Myself to them more completely in the process as they go forth to carry the nature of My character into this world. They shall know Me more fully and not only will they know Me fully, but those around them will know Me more fully because they have walked on the path of life and they have opened a way for people to see My goodness in their lives, says the Lord.

You have come a long way. Don’t stop. Keep pushing through to the next thing. You will know the next thing because it will appear like a guest at your door, and you will take one step at a time, one day at a time, until you accomplish what I have set you to do, says the Lord. At the end of this process you will know yourself better than you ever have before. Job 23:11 “My foot has held fast to His steps; I have kept His way and not turned aside.”

You’ve been waiting for the right time to step out and accomplish what has seemed to be beyond you. Now is that time. But, it would be good for you to ask for wisdom in the process of being led step by step along the way. Rest assured that I am with you and for you, and I will speak into your situation and bring peace to your heart, says the Lord. Trust Me!
Psalms 23:2 “He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.”

If you will steady yourself and seek My face, says the Lord, I will reveal to you things that have been difficult to grasp. Bring your inquiry before Me, and be assured that if you ask, I will answer. But, you must lay aside your own speculations and assumptions and come with a heart wide open and ready to receive. Do not be afraid.
Luke 11:9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

Be thankful and express your gratitude by extending a helping hand to others. What I have given you is not yours alone, but is a blessing to those you show mercy to, says the Lord. You are not your own; you are Mine. You are designed to be My hand extended, and My mouth to encourage and exhort. Let your heart reflect My heart.
Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Be on guard, beloved. You will have opportunities to get involved in quarrels of various kinds. But, you would do well to back away from conflict. If you can bring positive instruction, do so with a humble and contrite spirit. Otherwise, such an encounter could escalate very quickly into something you really do not want, says the Lord. A soft answer will turn away wrath.
2 Timothy 2:24-26 “And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/16/15:
I am giving you signs in this season. Signs of confirmation. Signs that will enable you believe without the doubt that has plagued you in past seasons. For, this is the time of the growing up of My people; the perfecting of My saints. This is the time for you to come into what I have called you to be. This is the time to enjoy the journey that I have prepared for you. This is the time to walk with Me on that journey. Great joy and great peace shall be yours in this season if you will walk with Me, says the Lord.

You are in a time of preparation that will equip you for the days ahead. Do not be afraid that you will miss what I am about to do, says the Lord. When the time comes you will able to see clearly and know without reservation how to respond and move with the flow of My Spirit. The events of this season will make you ready.
Psalms 31:19 “Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You in the presence of the sons of men!”

I am well aware that you have been in the doldrums and that it has been more difficult to think and be aware of the nuances in your surroundings. This phase of what seems to be sleep-walking will soon be a thing of the past as you begin to awaken. Know that you are not alone and that many are enduring a similar annoyance, says the Lord. Rest in the hope of better things.
Hebrews 6:9a “But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you.”

Release yourself from all regret. You cannot change the past, but you can use your past experiences to gain understanding of what motivates yourself and others. You can access wisdom from the evaluation of the past that will help you become a better human being. Most importantly, you will have opportunities to learn the value of forgiveness, says the Lord.
Matthew 6:15 “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Step out into the light. Let go of everything that has kept you shrouded in darkness. These are days where the quality of your life can improve dramatically, but you must have patience as you deliberately move away from places of bondage and embrace the liberty that awaits. Do not doubt in your heart My ability to set you free, says the Lord.
Luke 18:27 “But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.””

Now is the time to upgrade–to take the next step. I speak to you spiritually to rise to a higher position, greater discernment, and closer relationship to Me, says the Lord. But, you will also see this process playing out in natural circumstances as a sign of what is happening in the realm of the Spirit. Pay attention to those things and go with the flow and moving of My Spirit.
Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/9/15:
I see and know your whole life. I have walked with you in the valley of the shadow of death. And, even though you may not remember, I have encouraged you to keep going, to keep moving, and to come to this place that I have brought you to so that you are dwelling in a place of liberty under the shadow of My wings. And, from this point on, things will be different. You can experience joy and peace in a fresh way. Renew your relationship with Me and walk with Me as I lead you into the fullness of My kingdom, says the Lord. Be blessed! Be renewed!

You are beginning to deal with all kinds of change in your life — from slight to radical. Change requires adjustment. If you refuse to be flexible and are unyielding and rigid, it will be a painful experience. Do all that is necessary to accommodate the process of adjusting to things that are different than they were. Let this become a time of spiritual growth as you seek Me in all things, says the Lord. My love for you never changes.
Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. “

Settle yourself in a place of peace regardless of the turmoil around you. Overcome the urge to start a fight or get in someone else’s quarrel because it will create a situation that you will not want to deal with. You will benefit greatly from being a peacemaker, and put your trust in Me to bring forth justice. Rise up and walk in the Spirit instead of trying to satisfy your flesh.
Proverbs 16:7 “When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”

The road has been rocky, and life experiences have been problematic and even dangerous. But, I have helped you in every circumstance. You are Mine; you belong to Me. Set your heart on peace, and let My peace permeate every fiber of your being, says the Lord. Do not be afraid. Rather, do all that is necessary to clean up the mess caused by the trouble that has come upon you, and be strong.
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.”

When circumstances become difficult, and you want to run and hide, run to Me. Find your refuge in Me. Regardless of how tough life gets, I will receive you and comfort you.

Know that you are going to be all right, says the Lord, for I am with you.

It is My desire for you to edify, to build one another up. There is a myriad of ways you can do that, but you must give from a genuine desire to see others receive help and not from wanting to feel better about yourself. Some of you may be able to give financial aid while others may encourage with kindness or help with tasks. Take a step in the right direction by truly caring for your fellow man, says the Lord, and I will reward you in kind.
Romans 14:19 “Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/2/15:
I am calling you, My people, to a higher level of living, to a higher place of believing — a place in which you will be trained to rule and reign with Me over the nations, over those things that are to come. So, I encourage you to begin today by ruling over your own life, over your own situations and circumstances. Exercise your kingship today over the arenas that I have placed you in so that your habitations become the habitation of Christ. And, let those habitations become anointed. May it happen today, says the Lord.

Some things are just not predictable because of free will and change. In these matters you will just have to wait and see. This is a time when you will be able to learn to let go, stop trying to control, and exercise patience. You can only respond to these situations when you have strong faith that everything will work to your ultimate spiritual benefit, says the Lord.
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
