An antichrist spirit has been released over the land to bring a new round of condemnation to My people. The attack will be against your soul by way of reminder of the things in your life that bring the deepest shame. Do not allow this attack to demoralize you, but remember that you have repented, and you have been forgiven, 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.”

Be aware that you could find yourself in a situation where you can represent spiritual reality in a way that is very appealing. This will not necessarily be in words, but will definitely be portrayed by your attitudes, responses, and actions. You will exhibit the true nature of My witness, says The LORD. You may not reach the masses, but you will reach hearts that are hungry for truth.
1 John 3:18-19 “My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.”

Refuse to settle for less than your capacity to develop spiritual awareness. You are living below your potential. It takes concentrated effort and focus to live and walk in the Spirit, says The LORD. Your desires must be honed to seek all things pertaining to My kingdom rather than things of the earth.
2 Peter 1:2-4 “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”

Many of you have been in a fog spiritually. It has been difficult to find your way or stay on track. But I AM telling you honestly that the fog is beginning to lift. Things that have been shrouded in darkness will be revealed. Your path will be illuminated before you, and clarity will come. Prepare yourself with the expectation of greater light and clearer direction, says The LORD.
Psalm 18:28 “For You will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/16/19
Have I not said, “Awaken yourself”? This is the time of the year when I blow the trumpet and say to you: Come and see! Therefore, wake up. Come alive. Come to Me, and I will help you. Walk and talk with Me, and I will guide you into this season.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”

You are in the process of spiritual transformation, which sometimes seems to be cruel and unusual punishment. However, I would have you remember the caterpillar as it progresses through the stages of transformation to become a butterfly. Would you stop short of your potential because of the difficult process? You have a purpose and destiny to achieve, says The LORD. You have not yet been perfected. Continue on!
2 Corinthians 3:18 “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of The LORD, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of The LORD.”

Do not take yourself too seriously. The Spirit is like a flowing river or like the wind, which moves regardless what you do. If you try to be bigger and more powerful than the river or the wind, you are taking on responsibility that does not belong to you. My desire is for you to yield and flow with the moving of My Spirit. Let Me take you on the journey of My choosing, says The LORD.
John 3:8 “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

The Holy Spirit in the people of God is urging us to reach higher to know more intimately the truth of God’s calling and purpose. We cannot be satisfied with what we have known in the past. We must go up. We must go to the Potter’s House to be made again into a better vessel — one more perfect, one stronger, one more useful. We are willing, Lord, to be transformed.
Jeremiah 18:3-4 “Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.”

If you feel lost or irrelevant you need to know that you are in transition. You are in the process of moving into a new season as things of the past months are fading away in preparation for what is ahead. Take a moment to reflect on what seemed to be failures to see what you can learn, and rejoice in your victories. Prepare to redirect and focus your attention on the next phase of existence. Philippians 3:13-14 “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, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

You will soon find a solution to that which has been your primary concern. Know that when you release your worries to Me you can let go. Your faith is only activated when you leave the results to Me, says The LORD. I AM capable of finding the best possible answer to your dilemma. Trust Me. Psalm 138:8 “The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/9/19
Come with Me, and I will lead and guide you into all that I am about to do. The days before you will be exciting times that you will not want to miss out on. I AM about to increase the power of My People to know and hear Me.

Settle down on the rock-solid spiritual foundation that I have provided for you. Many of My people are flighty and are moved by every wind of thought and idea without being grounded in truth and purpose. You would do well to establish yourself and build on that which has eternal value. In doing that, you must look beyond temporary investments of your time and energy as well as the things that comfort your fleshly desires and walk in the Spirit, says The LORD.
Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

Beloved, when circumstances get frustrating, take a deep breath and get quiet. Things will smooth out again, but you must refuse to be upset or annoyed. Slow down and give others the benefit of the doubt. Exercise patience and your ability to be kind and understanding, says The LORD.
Matthew 7:12a “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them.”

Seeds of generosity that you sow at My behest will reap an extraordinary harvest of favor, grace, and prosperity. Give with an open heart and without expectation of gratitude or reciprocation. Be My hand extended and take no credit for yourself, says The LORD. Only then will you reap the benefits of kindness.
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.”

There are things that I have yet to reveal to you that will cause you to grow spiritually and build on the firm foundation of your faith. Life as usual will take a turn, and I will direct you in ways that will improve your health and well-being. You will be able to look back at this time in awe of My care for you, says The LORD.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”

I AM going to use you in ways that you did not expect. Get ready to do all that I ask, says The LORD. It may not make sense, but your common sense is not always compatible with that which is spiritual, says The LORD. I want you to be a representative of My will and purposes on the earth. Be ready to move with the leading of My Spirit.
Proverbs 7:24 “Now therefore, listen to me, my children; pay attention to the words of my mouth.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 9/2/19
Come to Me, and I will lead and guide you into My will. If you live in and by the power of your flesh you will not be able to see and know spiritually that which is taking place. But, if you begin to live by My Spirit, He will guide you into My purposes.
Psalm 73:24 “You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.”

Remember the days when I asked you, My people, to simplify and fortify? That message still holds, but now I want you to apply that simplicity to accessing My Spirit, says The LORD. It comes down to four easy steps. Shut out distractions. Get quiet both externally and internally. Find Me. Stay focused by bringing your mind back when it wanders.
Proverbs 8:17 “I love those who love Me, and those who seek Me diligently will find Me.”
