The enemy is at work to make you feel spiritually dry or impotent. Do not accept his lies. My Spirit is alive within you, but at times is imperceptible because of your uncertainty. Quiet yourself until you know without a doubt that I am in you and with you, says the LORD. Let My life spring up in you and flow like a river out of you.
John 7:38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

Do what it takes to be consciously aware of My presence at all times. Refuse to be distracted from living in the Spirit and walking in harmony with spiritual truth. Do good and depart from evil. These are perilous times, and it will take deliberate effort to stay on track. I will also help you if you ask, says the LORD.
2 Timothy 3:1 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come.”

Self-examination and internal work continue to be a priority. When you blame others for the results of what you have done, you will continue to reap the harvest of bad attitudes and motivations. Change must begin with realizing your own culpability. Be honest with yourself and others in all things, says the LORD. Remember that you reap what you sow.
Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”

Listen carefully and hear My voice, for I will give you the wisdom and direction you need. I have no favorites in My kingdom. I do not value one over another. I do not withhold My love or provision. All that I have made already exists and can be accessed through faith in Me, says the LORD. Make your way through doubt and unbelief; sweep away the cobwebs of confusion and ask in faith.
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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 11/26/18
These are times in which you must be connected to Me, says the LORD. These are dangerous times when many will be tempted to fall away. Do not allow this to happen to you. Stay strong, and live by faith in Me. I will be your helper in these days if you allow it.

It is important to make life in the Spirit the nucleus of your being–the absolute focal point and heart of your existence. Nothing of eternal value can come from focus on the flesh. In this season you will have to work harder than ever to override the noise and distractions of the world. Rise above the nonsense to live on the solid foundation of spiritual truth, says the LORD.
1 Corinthians 3:11 “For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Identify specifically the issues that are causing trouble for you. Do what is necessary to correct those things that you have power to do something about. Let Me give you the wisdom to know what you can do. Then, trust Me with the rest. I can do what you cannot. Deliberately bring these issues to Me and release them, says the LOTRD. Have faith!
Mark 11:22 “So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.””

I speak to those who are discouraged, and I tell you the truth that discouragement will kill your faith. You must look up and seek Me for wisdom and guidance. I hear your prayers of faith, and I will direct your steps. Rise up out of the dead ashes of the past, and refuse to get tired of doing what is right and good, says the Lord.
Galatians 6:9 “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”

Do not worry about what the future holds. Make the most of the time you have today. Rise above the darkness that comes with disputes and allow a generous spirit to rule. Be generous in your attitudes and behavior, says The LORD. Let My light shine through you to bring peace and joy.
Romans 14:17 “for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

There are many things that seem to require your attention in these days, but you can still set your mind and heart to stay connected to Me, says The LORD. Your hope should not be in things of the earth whether health, finances, or balance of power. Your only true hope is in trusting Me in everything. Rise up spiritually to fulfill your eternal destiny through genuine faith.
1 Peter 1:13 “Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Take a deep breath and settle yourself in peace. You have endured disturbing and upsetting circumstances, but you must let the past be the past before you can forge ahead. This is a new day. Set yourself to allow My strength to be the basis for a new beginning. I am with you and will uphold you.
Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 11/19/18
Satan is very active right now in sending a spirit of slumber upon God’s people. Therefore, it is necessary for you to stay strong by activating your faith. This means you must use your faith. Ask of Me!
John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”

The new season that began with Rosh Hashanah is now in full swing. It is a time when you can move into the manifestation of greater spiritual power and experience a level of higher discernment and awareness. Access by genuine faith the new anointing that is now available to you. Set yourself to become a true worshiper, says The LORD.
John 4:23 “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.”

I kept hearing the sound of victory in my spirit, and I felt the soft touch of the Spirit confirming His word that we are overcomers and will see better days ahead. Life has not been easy, but we have learned much about ourselves, others, and the work of God through the challenges we faced. We thank God for His wisdom, direction, and goodness.
1 Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

You will be required to exercise patience especially when you encounter difficulties. You might not want to respond with patient continuance, but failing to do so is the function of pride. I would have your every response be one of righteousness and peace, says the Lord. Allow My Spirit to rule in your heart.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 “The end of a thing is better than its beginning; the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.”

Darkness covers the earth, but you must not become part of that darkness. I have called you to be light and to bring light into every situation and circumstance. Your light will encourage others to also move into light and the brightness of life, 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.””

I have called you to a new anointing that requires your awareness. You can improve your spiritual discernment by looking and listening as I reveal My purposes. It is My desire that you deliberately ascend to a higher place where you can receive wisdom and direction. Quietly and powerfully carry out My instructions, says The LORD.
Psalm 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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 11/12/18
Listen carefully to that which you have heard this day. Thanksgiving is the most powerful component of your prayers. You must learn to monitor your attitudes when you come to My throne room with your requests. Come with faith that is covered in thanksgiving. If you do so, you will become a receiver of My goodness.
Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

Remove yourself from everything that creates unrest in your soul, and come close to Me, says the Lord. I am calling you to new anointing if you can receive it, but it requires your complete dedication. Your eligibility comes with separation from the world and worldly values as well as commitment to the work of My Spirit. Rise up to this higher level of fidelity and your spiritual awareness and understanding will increase.
1 John 2:27 “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”

For those who have ears to hear, eyes to see, and a heart to receive, I am releasing a new and powerful anointing. That anointing will enable you to carry out My will surreptitiously and without opposition from the enemy, says The LORD. I will give you divine wisdom and direction so that you can carry out My wishes with excellence.
Proverbs 3:6 “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

The past is coming up for review again, and you must choose whether or not to wallow in regret or to learn from mistakes and make adjustments. The temptation will be to entertain condemnation, but that would be a flesh response when the answer is to walk and live in the Spirit. Choose the high ground, says The LORD.
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.”

Many have deviated from the path that I have chosen for them. They have done this by allowing their hearts to be divided by turning their attention to their trouble instead of drawing near to Me, says The LORD. I want My people to return to a place of spiritual safety and strength with single focus and renewed love.
Psalm 37:39 “But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble.”

These are days to be excellent. Be the best version of yourself possible. Arise to every position of righteousness, justice and faithfulness. Hold yourself to the high standard of My Word and purposes. You can do this because I have sent the Helper to assist you in this endeavor, says The LORD.
John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 11/5/18
I want My people to be overcomers. You must learn to actively resist temptation. To do this you must be filled with My Holy Spirit. If you are filled with My Spirit, He will lead and guide you. The infilling of My Spirit will enable you to discern the situations that you are in. You will then be able to know the truth that will set you free from temptations that satan sets before you.
James 4:7 “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

You, My people, are always transitioning from day to day, week to week, month to month, season to season, and year to year. You continue to be in a state of transformation as experiences and challenges present opportunities for spiritual growth. Right now you are in the early days of a new season. I will give you wisdom and guidance as you move forward by the power of My Spirit, says The LORD.
Romans 12:2 “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Take nothing for granted. Look beyond the obvious to observe the subtlety. There is more to see than you anticipated, says The LORD. Do not be too sure of yourself. Remember that being overly confident equates to pride, which is not a becoming feature. Carefully guard your heart.
Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

Examine yourself to see if your thought pattern is becoming a habit and setting a trend that is not consistent with My word or purposes. Do not depart from My will for your life, but rather set a course that will draw you closer to Me, says The LORD. It is My will that you become One with Me in thought, action and purpose — always seeking truth and righteousness.
John 17:22-23 “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
