You have every opportunity to see the worst in people or to see the best in people. Neither position gives you a clear picture in your judgment of others. Everyone has to endure challenges in life, and everyone makes mistakes. You would do well to see others through My eyes, says The LORD. That is to know My love and to apply mercy. Be generous in your evaluations.
Matthew 5:7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.”

Be strong and unwavering in your devotion. Do not deviate from spiritual truth and righteousness. Your relationship with Me is the most important aspect of your life, says the Lord. Guard and protect that connection with every fiber of your being. Your life depends on it to not only survive but to thrive.
Proverbs 4:20-22 “My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/29/18
Follow My process and be led by the Holy Spirit. He will lead and guide you into the fullness of this season. He will reveal His path to you and show you the way in which to go. He will reveal that which is hidden so that you will have spiritual understanding of the things that are going on around you.
1 Corinthians 4:5 “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until The LORD comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God.”

The issues that you have not wanted to deal with are coming up again for review. And, you would do well to consider your options in preparation for what is ahead. The conclusion of these matters may not be immediate, but they will require some planning before the complete resolution. Trust Me to lead you in the way you should go, says The LORD.
Psalm 143:8 “Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, for in You do I trust; cause me to know the way in which I should walk, for I lift up my soul to You.”

These are the days of breaking through the darkness of your own soul and spirit. Honest internal work is required before you can actually see what is keeping you from the light of My presence. It is My will for you to live and walk in the light so that you can actually be the light of the world, says The LORD. Be done with evil intentions.
Matthew 5:14-16 “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. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Protect and keep yourself from hatred, strife and contention. My Kingdom is about your love for Me and your love for others. Do not allow anything to derail your compassion and empathy for all people. Let your light shine in darkness, even the deep darkness that covers the earth, says The LORD. Glorify Me with your righteous attitudes and good works.
Proverbs 4:23 “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”

Watch for and resist the deceptions and temptations of the enemy. Those cleverly designed plans are for the purpose of taking you into captivity. Sin opens the door to demonic activity. Your freedom depends on your ability to choose righteousness and stay connected to Me, says The LORD.
Romans 6:20-22 “For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.”

Stay strong and stand on the righteous principles of My word, says The LORD. There are elements in the world around you that will chip away at your values and morality, but you must maintain your spiritual integrity. Make a determination to always do what is right and good.
Psalm 34:14 “Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/22/18
Stay connected to Me. Walk and talk with Me, and I will lead you and guide you into that which I have for you. You will not be able to safely navigate the spiritual landscape of this season without My help.
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Be aware of the factors in your environment that can derail your faith and spiritual progression. You must make every effort to anchor yourself on the firm foundation of life in Christ. It is easy to be distracted, so set your heart and mind on eternal truth, says The LORD.
John 17:3 “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”

In the midst of uncertainty, I would have you express honesty and integrity in everything. Keep things as pure and simple as possible. It is when life becomes convoluted that you are in danger of compromising the values of Kingdom life, says The LORD. Stay close to Me and be aware of pitfalls that exist in your environment.
Titus 2:7-8 “in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.”

Endeavor to walk in the strength of My Spirit, says The LORD. It is My desire for each of you, My people, to walk in the newness of the Spirit instead of falling back on religious rhetoric. When you stop living and walking in the Spirit, you will find yourself in the flesh. Seek My face and know My heart at all times.
Romans 7:6 “But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.”

Beloved, I have created you to be resilient, and I will lift you to a place spiritually where you can bounce back from difficult conditions. However, you must exercise your will to move forward by not taking the victim position. Take one step at a time and one day at a time to regain faith and power, says The LORD. Be strong.
Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in The LORD and in the power of His might.”

Refuse to allow the circumstances of life to swallow you up so that you lose perspective. There are things to do, but everything must be done from a position of order instead of chaos. Be thoughtful in your process and apply divine wisdom. Establish and maintain a solid connection with Me, says The LORD, and I will guide you. Stay calm.
1 Corinthians 14:40 “Let all things be done decently and in order.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/15/18
This is not a time in which you should find yourself unaware of this season. Ask of Me, and I will reveal that which you need to know. I will lead and guide you through the turbulence of these days. Remain connected to My Holy Spirit so that everything will work in your favor.
Psalm 102:13 “You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come.”

This is a time of preparation in which you can consider the best course of action for your future. The decisions that you make at this time will produce long-term consequences, so make wise choices. Ask for the wisdom you need in every situation and be assured that I will answer, says The LORD. Proceed with the assurance that I am with you.
Proverbs 23:19 “Hear, my son, and be wise; and guide your heart in the way.”

Be done with contention and strife; it will only cause those relationships to deteriorate. Pay attention to your motivations and attitudes and deal with negativity by getting right with Me, says The LORD. You will either focus on differences by quarreling in the flesh, or you will live at peace through focusing on life in the Spirit. One tears apart while the other binds together.
Romans 12:18 “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.”

There are multiple things in your environment that could be the cause for concern. But, I have already instructed you not to worry. Worry will not solve any problem, but will only keep you from walking in the Spirit. Rise up out of the mire of doubt and fear and come into My presence where I can give you true wisdom and direction. The stress of anxiety will keep you from peace, says The LORD.
Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Beloved, I want you to be soft yet strong; tender and at the same time tough. I would have you discern when to be silent and when to speak. There will always be moments in your life of self-assertion as well as reservation. As long as you are led by My Spirit, you will express the true response in every circumstance. I will give you divine wisdom, says The LORD. Stay connected.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.”

Be done with regrets over things in the past that are matters of personal history. You are wasting your time and energy over things you can do nothing about. Instead, evaluate where you are now and what you can do to be a solid citizen in the Kingdom of Heaven. There are plenty of decisions to be made that will strengthen your righteous position, says The LORD.
Philippians 3:13 “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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/8/18
Be strong in The LORD and in the power of His might. Resist the lying spirit that has been released over your land. Declare that truth will prevail and every lie will be defeated, says The LORD.
John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Rise up in renewed hope and set your heart on the things eternal. Refuse to get bogged down in the difficulties of every day life. Your hope is in that which transcends what you see naturally. Set your heart and mind to find spiritual reasons for fresh optimism. Come up out of the darkness of despair and breathe the fresh air of hopefulness, says The LORD.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says The LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

You may have been on what seemed like a roller-coaster ride, but you will now be able to regain your sense of perspective and balance. You can slow down and get into a better routine that will accommodate your desire to know Me better, says The LORD. Just settle down and refocus your efforts and spiritual intentions.
Psalm 107:30 “Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven.”

Pick up the pieces that resulted from the chaos in the past few months. Various areas of your life were shaken, but you must come back to the central theme of your life in Christ. Even though it may seem like you’ve been displaced, you can quickly and easily come back to a solid position. Re-establish your spiritual commitment to live and walk in the Spirit, says The LORD, and dismiss everything that keeps you from relationship with Me.
Galatians 5:16 “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”

Many of you, My people, need a reset where things have become too complicated. Make an assessment and start over on a firm spiritual foundation. Separate the essentials from the trivial, and be strong. Stay with eternal and godly values as the basis for your decisions, says The LORD. You will certainly reap what you sow.
Hebrews 5:14 “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

You will begin to see the resolution of difficult problems. I will impart to you clarity in the understanding of what you can do to deal with these issues. Refuse to get mired in possibilities or probabilities. Rather, seek My face and ask for the wisdom necessary to move forward at this time, says The LORD. Never doubt that I am with you.
Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/1/18
Have you heard the message? It is time for you to allow Me to move you by My Spirit into this season of spiritual expansion. It is a season that I have established for the end times. So, position yourself by faith to expect Me to move you into the blessing of this time.

Corruption on the earth continues to gain ground. But you, My people, must set a higher standard for yourselves. It must be a spiritual standard that is beyond reproach. The challenge is to rise above the things of earth to see from My perspective, says The LORD. Evaluate your life and experience by seeing through My eyes and My point of view.
Psalm 119:37 “Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way.”
