THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/30/13:
The Lord would have me ask you, what is it that you see right now? Do you see the glory of the kingdom? Have you seen this change in the atmosphere that you live in? Do you see and understand that I have something for you that is of great importance in this time? Do you see that I am bringing My church to a place of glory and I am washing her with My word? I am pouring out the living waters upon her. It is My desire to bring you, My people, ever higher and cause you to be such as has not been seen before. For, these things are written about My church as they live in the end of the age. So, now it is time for Me to do that final work. Will you perceive it? Will you see it? Will you understand it? Or, will you, once again, just let it flow by? Will you miss the opportunities or will you take advantage of them? The choice is yours. But, I say, arise this very day with a new understanding of the times and the seasons you live in and begin to perceive My presence, My works, and My signs. Says the Lord, Most Holy.

In a vision I saw people sitting on a very long fence that reminded me of how blackbirds sit on a power line. Being on the fence represents trying to be in the world and in the Kingdom of God, but not actually living in either place. And, I heard the Lord say: Now is the time to make solid and sound decisions about your dedication and commitment to Me. The times you live in will require you to make a serious and lasting choice.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”

Beloved, stay on track. Don’t let anything derail you from your focus on things that really matter–things of eternal value and importance. The enemy will do all he can to cause confusion, condemnation, and distraction. It is up to you to resist the attacks of the enemy, keep your thoughts under the rule of My Spirit and to control your emotional impulses and responses. Then, trust Me to give you wisdom and direction in all things, says the Lord. I am for you!
Psalms 119:133 “Direct my steps by Your word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me.”

You are in a time of revelation for the purpose of bringing everything into the light and leaving nothing hidden in darkness. This will be experienced on every level, but it will begin with your own soul as you have opportunities to do an internal work that creates a cleansing, empowering flow within. Release yourself completely to this work; it will be of great benefit to you and those around you, says the Lord.
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.”

In a vision I saw the heavens open up, and streams of light came down to us as revelation of who He is; a revelation of His heart and love for His people. And, I could see the spiritual blessings being poured out in such magnitude that we could not contain them or keep them for ourselves. It was the gift of God to all who could receive it by faith, and it had to be shared with those who had ears to hear and a heart to receive.
Malachi 3:10 “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” Says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.”

I heard this phrase by the Spirit. “Deep calls to deep.” And, I could feel and know that the Spirit of the Lord is expanding our spiritual borders–deeper and higher. He is deepening our hearts’ capacity to love Him, to receive Him, and to live in Him. He is taking us higher in our ability to see, discern, know and understand His will and purposes. This is a supernatural work beyond the flesh or anything we can accomplish in and of ourselves. He will cause our own spirits to resonate in harmony with His Spirit, producing life, liberty and clarity.
Psalms 42:7-8 “Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves and billows have gone over me. The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me-a prayer to the God of my life.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS —9/23/13:
Come now, My people, and enter your chambers until My indignation passes you by. For, when My judgments come upon the earth, they were not designed for you, they were not yours to be received. You are My chosen ones, My glorious ones, and I have revealed that to your heart in these past few weeks. And, now you know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the God that you serve, which God I am, loves you and cares for you, cherishes you, equips you, and empowers you so that you may fulfill your destiny in the end of the age. So, come into your chambers; come into the hiding place; come into the place of anointing; come into the place where My word runs like a river. Come quickly and eat the hidden manna I have provided for you. Freely I have given freely receive. Come now. Come to Me as you continue to look up, says the Lord.

This time of transition and turmoil has caused you to experience the feeling of being disconnected. That does not mean that you are actually disconnected, but rather that this new spiritual territory is unfamiliar. You are not yet comfortable, but you will settle in and continue to gain and maintain a level of ease. You will have more opportunities to grow and gain revelation through your experiences, but it will be much less chaotic, says the Lord. Draw close and stay connected to Me.
Hosea 6:1 “Come, and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.”

The power of righteousness will be your best weapon against the enemy. Take your position in faith and resist him without wavering. Stand strong. Be resolute. Do not be afraid. Know, My beloved, that I am for you and with you and that no weapon of any kind can be successful against you when you are established in right standing with Me, says the Lord. Stay close. Stay connected.
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.”

You already know that everything that could be shaken has been shaken. This has been necessary to bring you into divine and lasting order. Now, you are in the beginning of a healing process where the things that remain will be strengthened. Cooperate with this process as you let go of the things that weaken you spiritually and that do not bring a strengthening quality to your life both spiritually and naturally. Whatever does not make you stronger is likely to make you weaker. There are decisions you must make with regard to letting go of those things that suck the life out of you, says the Lord.
Hebrews 12:27 “Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.”

In a vision I saw three different people with an open wound in the area of the heart. They were told that they had to sew their wounds up in order to stop the bleeding. The first person knitted a covering for the wound, but it was still bleeding underneath. The second person’s stitches were too loose and had to be tightened up to stop the bleeding. The third person was trying to figure out some kind elaborate cross-stitch instead of just closing the wound. I believe the vision is about wounding in the soul and spirit. The first person represents those in denial about the seriousness of the wound and just try to cover it up. The next person represents those who have the right spiritual concept, but they still have some work to do before healing begins. The last person represents those who are focused on doing a great job in the flesh to gain approval instead of doing by the Spirit what needs to be done. And the Lord says, “Release and forgive completely those who have wounded you, and then trust Me to bring healing and restoration.”
Exodus 15:26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”

Beloved, examine the motivation behind your commitments. My desire is that when you commit it will be motivated by your love for Me, says the Lord, and not by your need for approval or position. I would have you come into the secret place before Me with a pure heart and righteous dedication. Refuse to allow the enemy to establish selfish ambition or corruption in your reasoning and subsequent actions.
Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/16/13:
I hear the Lord saying, will yourself to Me. Will yourself to me! That would mean you have given yourself to Me. It would mean that I have responsibility for you — to empower by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. So, make that decision in your soul. The power of free will choice and say, “I will Myself into the hand of God this moment. I will myself under the provision of His kingdom, the blessings of His kingdom, the power of His kingdom. I will myself to become an overcomer; to be steadfast. To be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. I make the choice to establish myself by the power of my will to be what He wants me to be in these days.” And, if you will do so, I will be with you and I will perform My word over you, around you and through you, says the Lord. Be wise. Don’t be deceived. Come to Me, and I will equip you and prepare you for the perilous times that you live in and the days of evil that are before you. For, I am the Most Holy One; the One who is able to keep you on the path of righteousness; to keep you in the power of My kingdom by which you overcome all the works of the enemy. Just become one with Me, says the Lord. I’ve kept you for such a time as this; to be used in this time. I will establish you in a position of righteousness, strength and power, so that you may fulfill your destiny, says the Lord God Almighty.

You are going to find yourself feeling the final crunch of things that are coming into perfect order before you can move on, some of which will be somewhat unexpected. But, you will know that you are in the flow of My Spirit when these things are not initiated by you. You will be able to see divine intervention, mercy and grace as I give you wisdom in many areas of your life. Trust Me, says the Lord.
Acts 17:29 “Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising.”

You have reached a plateau in the realm of the Spirit. Yet, it feels like you are precariously perched on a pinnacle with not much room to move. The truth of the matter is that you have to establish yourself here so that what seems to be dangerously unstable will become solid ground with enough space to accomplish all that I have set you to do, says the Lord. It is true that your experiences have been fraught with difficulties, but this new place will become a position of safety for you. Lean on Me!
Job 5:11 “He sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn are lifted to safety.”

When you have done your best, and it doesn’t seem to be enough, rest! After you have done all you can do, then stand in faith that I will bring this process to completion. I will do what you cannot do, says the Lord, but you must trust Me. There will always be things that are beyond your scope and ability to perform–where only time and grace will bring you through.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Now is the time to begin to settle into the changes that have brought order. You are being positioned for maximum strength and effectiveness both in the natural realm and in the spirit. What seems like loss was simply dross, for you are being purified on every level. And, you will begin to realize the power and anointing that comes with greater purity, says the Lord. Stay the course!
Daniel 12:10 “Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.”

I have called you to be a beacon for those who sit in darkness so they can catch a glimpse of what it is like to be in the light. I want you to be an example of Kingdom Dwellers so that others may come in. This is going to require discipline to make sure that darkness has no place in you, says the Lord. This is a time when you can rise up and take your rightful position as a witness of My love.
1 John 1:5 “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/9/13:
I hear the Lord saying, rise up My children. Come into faith. Forget the failures of the past. Remember who I am. Remember that I am yours and you are Mine. Seat yourself deeply within My heart. For, if you know My heart for you, you will make a determination that I am not only for you; I am with you. I will walk with you through this journey. I will lead and guide you. I will reveal Myself more fully to you. Come today with renewed hope and wrap up the seed that you are now about to sow in great faith. Plant them deep within your own hearts, the very good ground that I am now providing for you. Come and believe. Come and receive. Come unto Me. Let Me remove from you the stigma of the past. For, in the removing of that stigma, surely hope will grow, and out of that hope will come faith for this season; out of faith will come the blessings in this appointed time, says the Lord.

Watch and pay attention as I continue to provide opportunities for change that will ultimately result in a higher spiritual standard. Yield to these adjustments, for they will make your life better, and you will become a more accurate and effective example of life in the Spirit, says the Lord. I will tweak everything that is out of alignment with truth and life. Be willing and flexible; I will do the rest.
Philippians 2:13 “for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”

Even though you have been through a time of tearing down when it seemed like you endured one loss after another in many ways, yet now I will begin to build you up. But, it will not be by your own design or your carnal desires; it will be according to My plans and order. For, I say honestly that there were things that needed to be adjusted, and those adjustments could not have come without a dramatic upheaval with regard to the things that needed to be changed.
Do not mourn for the things you’ve lost, but rather look up and yield to the work of My hands in your life and circumstances. A new and divine order will no longer tear you down, but will build you up and you will be strong!
Now is the time for you to “strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and to make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.” (Hebrews 12:12-13)
You may feel lame, but your attitude and outlook will bring strength and healing. This is certainly no time for you to get stuck in being a victim of this house-cleaning process. It has been good for you spiritually whether you know it or not. And, I will certainly lead you in a way that you have not known and make the crooked paths straight before you.
Take your rightful and strong position in this new season and set yourself by faith and in hope to both sow good spiritual seeds and reap a great and bountiful harvest. Do this consciously and deliberately, for the time has come for the changes you have endured to set the stage for divine order in your life and circumstances, says the Lord.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.”

In a vision I saw people hanging in mid-air. It reminded me of parachutists in mid-air, but they were not falling. They began to reach out and touch one another and join together. And, I heard the Lord say, “My desire is for you, My people, to reach out, interact with each other and join together on a spiritual level rather than just on a natural level.”
Ephesians 2:19-22 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

I saw a man walking around the perimeter of a town as he surveyed the damage, which reminded me of Nehemiah. He was sorrowful at the destruction he could see and was calculating what it would take to rebuild and restore what once was a holy habitation. And, I heard the LORD say, “You are My holy habitation. You too have been broken and some of you, My people, still lie in ruins. Yield to Me, and I will restore and renew all that has been broken.” Then, I could feel the re-positioning or a shift of my spirit in union with God and the alignment of my internal energy with health, life and purpose.
John 17:22 “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.”

I heard rumbling in the foundations of the earth, and I knew it was the sound of the LORD establishing His purposes. He is bringing forth His work–His order–out of the chaos that Satan is creating in the world. Then, I saw people planting seeds, and I heard the sounds of hope and faith for a bountiful harvest. I also saw bees going forth from their hive to pollinate the flowers to become fruit and to make honey–the sweetness of the season. And the LORD said, “Everything is being done in My order and by My design. Your part is to sow the seeds that will produce the desired harvest. Now is the time to consider what you sow into your own life and into the lives of others. Will your harvest be sweet or bitter? You get to choose.”
Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

Hebrews 6:19 “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.”
I saw an anchor with the name “hope” engraved on it. I saw a rope that extended into the heavenlies attached to the anchor. The anchor was then lowered into a pool at the command of God. And, the Spirit of the Lord said, “This pool of water represents a new level of faith for this season. The things that you have only hoped for will now be realized because they will enter into the pool of faith that I am providing.”
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

You are still in a period of adjustment as the changes that have taken place become reality. The test is still to see if you will trust Me when your foundation is shaken, says the Lord. Be strong in your faith and resolute in your focus and spiritual intentions.
1 Chronicles 19:13 “Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God. And may the LORD do what is good in His sight.”
