Prepare yourself for a spiritual journey. I will take you into a realm of wisdom and understanding that you have not yet experienced. The preparation I speak of is one of purity and a genuine desire to know Me more intimately. You will never reach for anything you do not want, says The LORD. So, this will be a deliberate and focused process of making yourself ready. Only those who do so will make this journey.
Job 23:12 “I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.”

Stand on the solid ground of truth in every situation and not what you want to be true, but that which is actually true. The world is full of liars and those who stretch and distort the truth to satisfy their own selfish desires. My heart is with those who are honest souls who do not yield even for a moment to perversion or corruption, says The LORD.
Revelation 21:8 “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Pursue righteousness. Go after what is good and right. Be done with selfish ambition and exploitation. Refuse to blame others for your failure. It is time to take a stand against evil no matter where you find it. Yield to the work of My Spirit in you. You can only achieve righteousness through supernatural grace, says The LORD.
2 Timothy 2:22 “Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the LORD out of a pure heart.”

Do what it takes to set yourself solidly under My protection, says the Lord. There are still areas in your life that need work in order to eliminate vulnerabilities. Do what you can do and trust Me with the rest. You belong to Me and you matter to Me. Put your faith and trust in My ability to take care of My own.
Psalm 5:11 “But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/24/18:
I am encouraging you today, so don’t give up. Do not allow discouragement to control you. Be an overcomer. Stand resolutely against the problems that you have. Come to Me, and place your requests in My hand. I will help you overcome every issue. Only believe!

Re-establish in your life those things that are truly important to your spiritual well-being. You have allowed yourself to slip in areas of chaos and trouble. There is work to be done to shore up your position of righteousness before you can proceed on the path of truth and strength, says The LORD.
Isaiah 26:7 “The way of the just is uprightness; O Most Upright, You weigh the path of the just.”

Many of you, My people, have been moving along at a very hectic pace. It is necessary that you take time to rest and seek My face. Give yourself a break and be refreshed and rejuvenated, says the Lord. You will have to be deliberate in choosing to cease from fast and furious activity and slow down to achieve a steady and reasonable pace. Come to Me, and I will restore you.
Isaiah 40:31 “But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

You must not take the attitudes and motivations of those around you seriously. They are dealing with their own stuff, which has very little to do with you. Steer clear and do your best to be righteous despite your environment. Do not take things too personally, says the Lord, stay focused spiritually.
Proverbs 2:8-9 “He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, equity and every good path.”

Continue the effort to press through these difficult times. Do not give up. I know every detail of your life and heart, and I am with you, says the Lord. Establish yourself in hope and keep the faith. You are destined for victory. This too shall pass.
2 Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”

You are not out of the proverbial woods yet, but the greatest part of the difficulty is behind you. You have stood strong and passed the test of endurance. In a little while, you will be able to take the lessons you have learned into the days ahead with a depth of courage you would not have expected. This time will be remembered as a time of maturing spiritually, says The LORD.
Psalm 31:24 “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in The LORD.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/17/18:
Stay focused. The winds of change are indeed blowing. Remember My Word in 2 Corinthians 1:20: “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” Amen; so be it! Let your amen make it yours. Therefore, trust Me with your problems. Rely on Me to fulfill My word on your behalf.
Psalm 18:2 “The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

Face uncertainty with the certainty of the power of My Spirit. The unseen realm is of far greater and eternal consequence than the temporary problems that you face, says the Lord. Put things in perspective and refuse to feed your anxiety and fear of the unknown. All things are known to Me, and you can trust Me to take care of My own. Stand strong and resolute.
Psalm 91:5-9 “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place.”

Stand strong and stay calm. Being upset doesn’t help anything. What will help is for you to shift your focus from the natural realm to the spiritual realm. Find and stay in the flow of My Spirit, for I will give you wisdom and lead you in the way you should go for the best possible outcome for you, says The LORD. Do not be afraid.
Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”

As I waited on The LORD for His word, I heard these lyrics: Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative, don’t mess with Mr. In-Between. And, He said, “I want you to have faith that I am with you to do good and not evil. Be patient and allow My perfect will to unfold in your life.”
Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”

Deliberately lean on Me. Trust Me to provide everything you need whether wisdom, guidance, healing or finances. Seek Me and I will be found by you. Talk to Me and I will hear you. Ask and you will receive. Know that I am as close as your breath, says The LORD, and that I AM your help in trouble.
James 1:5-7 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 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. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

You have been looking for solutions and completion in various aspects of your life, and your wait is coming to an end. These are things that must conclude before you can be positioned to move forward and begin to experience the new season before you. You will forge ahead with a greater sense of spiritual stability and assurance, says The LORD
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is his treasure.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/10/18:
Rejoice, you people of the Lord! It is the Feast of Trumpets, a time in which I will speak to you. It is a time of the power of My word. It now becomes your time of blessing. This is the spiritual season in which I have chosen to reveal My presence in a more profound way. Therefore, put the past behind you and get ready for this new season.
2 Peter 1:19-21 “And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”

Pay attention because I am going to show you what it takes to fulfill your destiny. This is a time when you, My people, are more aware of your distance from Me. You realize that your religious culture has let you down and that what you do outwardly to serve and worship Me is meaningless and unfulfilling. I will teach you that true worship and service is being what you were created to be and not what society dictates. Only then will you experience a true anointing, says the Lord.
Matthew 6:5 “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men.”

Come to Me in times of need. You do not have to carry your burdens alone. I AM indeed with you to bring you through every challenge and to give the wisdom necessary for perfect progression, says The LORD. Find your assurance and rest in My presence.
Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

Refuse to be irritated and disturbed by delays or lack of progress. A perfect order and timing are set in motion for your life. Trust Me to bring forth those things that are important to your progress and well-being in due season. Impatience will only lead to your being unsettled and distraught. This should be a tie of quiet faith and endurance, says The LORD.
Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 9/5/18:
Maintain good order in your life circumstances. When there is chaos, judgment is impaired and wisdom is absent. Quiet your emotions and be sensitive to the leading of My Spirit in every situation. Only then can you proceed in truth and righteousness. Put aside your prejudice, says The LORD, and allow justice to prevail.
1 Corinthians 14:40 “Let all things be done decently and in order.”

Beloved, I want you to come closer to Me. You have achieved a level of comfort in seeking and interacting with Me, but there is more. There is a higher level of spiritual understanding and perfection that you have stopped short of. Press through this barrier of complacency and rise to new heights, says The LORD.
Philippians 3:12 “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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/3/18:
It is time to awaken and move with Me into the glory of this season. It is a time in which I will reveal the mysteries that apply to this time frame. These will be the times and seasons that you have waited for. There is much that I desire to show you, so come and see!
2 Corinthians 5:5 “Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 9/3/18:
There are lessons to learn that will equip you to move forward with grace instead of awkwardness. It is My desire for you to be equipped and ready for the days ahead and the things that you will be required to do, says The LORD. I will give you all the wisdom and direction you need.
James 3:13 “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/1/18:
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.”
