THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns--01/30/12:
As you come to Me in this season, says the Lord, then I will bring forth the true manifestation of the nature of the Father that indwells you. I will bring you to a place of understanding that your citizenship in heaven has already been established. I will enlighten you with words that will carry you into My purposes and into the glory of the kingdom. I say come. Get up and rise up. Come forth into My kingdom and into the power of My anointing. Let My glory overshadow you. And, let there be a covering over the glory and let it remain upon you until the fullness of it's effect is brought forth. Position yourselves, therefore, to be Mine and to be only Mine and to come with a heart that is wholly given, says the Lord.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns--01/30/12:
Pay attention to what is happening in your immediate environment, and look beyond the natural to see the spiritual significance. In this way you will begin to understand the opportunities you have to make decisions that will elevate you in the Spirit. Watch and be amazed at the spiritual perspective that I will bring through natural means. However, your life is not bound to the things of the earth, but is heaven-bound, says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns--01/27/12:
There is a current shift in the realm of the spirit, and you are standing in a pivotal position between what has been and that which is to come. You will find yourself glancing back at past things for a moment before moving on. However, there will be a temptation to relive old rejections and places of isolation and loneliness. Refuse to allow these memories to cause you to get stuck in oppression or condemnation. The past has no power unless you remember so clearly that you put yourself in the same situation again. But, beloved, the purpose of looking back is to see how far you've come and how much you have overcome. Rejoice in this opportunity to take stock before taking the next step. You are an overcomer, says the Lord.
Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns--01/26/12:
Your righteousness is a powerful force against darkness. It is in faith and righteousness that the kingdom of God is established in you, around you, and through you. Don't underestimate the victory that comes when you maintain right relationship with Me and those who belong to Me. Stay close and continue to seek My face, listen for My voice, and obey My leading, says the Lord. I am establishing purity and peace in those who truly belong to Me.
Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns--01/25/12:
Come to Me, says the Lord. I am calling you to come higher spiritually where I can reveal things that will help you obtain and maintain victory in every aspect of your life and being. These are days when you will not only be able to access but exercise the power given you to overcome the flesh, the world, and the devil. You are My chosen and special, called out of all darkness into the light of everlasting life.
1 Peter 2:9-10 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns--01/24/12:
Enter the realm of the Spirit and ask what you will in faith. Do not hesitate or come with doubt or double-mindedness. Come expecting an answer, for I will surely hear and answer your requests according to My purposes, says the Lord. And, in your asking do not violate the free-will choices of others, for the ability to choose has been afforded to all and cannot be transgressed. Come to Me with purity of heart and exercise your childlike faith.
James 1:2-8 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 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.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns--01/23/12:
Watch for the temptations that suck you back into an old spiritual condition, particularly that of fear or obsession. You will recognize it when it comes because you will feel restricted by it. Refuse to allow anything to cause you to retreat emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Maintain your liberty. The price has been paid for your freedom, says the Lord.
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin
2012 A YEAR OF DISCOVERY by Bill Burns -- Part 1:
2012 will become known as a year of discovery. As we begin to live under the rule of God's divine government, the mysteries of the end of the age will be revealed. The hidden manna (the mysteries) will be given, and revelation of God's purposes will come forth (Revelation 2:17).
The establishment of God's government, which will lead to discovery, will begin with a season of recovery.
The Trumpet: I say unto you, truly, truly, that this is the day of recovery, so rise up with hope renewed. Gain access into My goodness. For, surely I will restore that which has been stolen. I have come to set My people free, and I continue in the process by restoring them from time to time when it is necessary. Receive today the power of restoration and let the spirit of the living God now invade your spiritual space; let it over take you; let it embrace you.
The Trumpet--October 3, 2011: I prophesy to you that the Feast of Trumpets will birth a new season that will come into full manifestation and go forth in great strength into 2012. This will be the beginning of God's government becoming very, very apparent to us. The blessings of that government will come when we are living under His rule.
Go forth with great joy, for indeed these are the days of the manifestation of My kingdom. In these days the reality of a supernatural church will begin to be understood in the land and will be according to My purposes, says the Lord. It is My will for My people to live in the glory of the supernatural realm. The supernatural events that you desire to see will become a reality, which will establish you in a greater measure of faith than ever before. So, arise and come forth into kingdom purpose, says the Lord God Almighty.
Divine government will be the result of establishing the kingdom. God's rule will begin in 2012. Twelve has always been the number of God's government; this has been established in scripture and by divine pattern.
God's government began with the twelve tribes of Israel and continued in the New Testament with the designation of the twelve apostles. The rule of God and of the Lamb (Revelation 22:3) will be in place for eternity. Again, the number 12 is found in God's eternal city, the New Jerusalem (Revelation chapter 21).
The city has 12 gates and 12 angels at the gates. The names of the 12 tribes of Israel is written on them. The wall of the city has 12 foundations with the names of the 12 apostles on them. The city is 12,000 furlongs in length, breadth and height, and there are 12 precious stones on the foundations of the wall of that city.
On January 1, 2012, the Lord gave me this scripture:
Habakkuk 2:1-3 I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, And watch to see what He will say to me, And what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the LORD answered me and said: "Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.
When I read this scripture, I knew that it had to do with God's divine government, and I knew that it would be progressive in nature-not all at once. However, the vision is for an appointed time (2012).I then saw the beginning manifestation of the kingdom and that it would be as it was in the beginning of the rule of the King of kings.
Luke 2:41-42 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover. And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
Luke 2:46-47 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
Jesus at age 12 went into the temple (place of government), and the scripture says He was in the midst of those there-on the third day.
Hosea 6:1-3 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. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight. Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
As we come completely under His rule, He will come to us, lead us, and guide us by His Spirit. He will reveal that which is hidden. (Isaiah 48:6) We are in the third day of Christ, who is establishing His third-day government over His people. Habakkuk says in 2:3 that at the end, the vision will speak.
Revelation 11:15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"
So the end time (third-day government) rule of Christ will begin in 2012 with a season of recovery, and then discovery as our King reveals the mysteries of the end of the age to His people. The manifestation of the kingdom will be progressive and become complete when Christ returns to set up His physical kingdom here on earth.
Signs In The Earth (Acts 2:19)
The sign that is visible regarding the need for divine government was given in 2011. The protests and uprisings against governments around the world have taken place, from the Arab Springs uprising to the Wall Street protestors in the USA. It is clear that the governments of men are ineffective. Even the congress in our country is dysfunctional. The world needs divine government and the Church does also.
First the natural signs, then the spiritual signs will follow. The scripture declares the spiritual reality of the rule of God over His people.
Revelation 19:15-16 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
Satan will fight against the establishment of God's government. The battle is going to heat up. This is the season that the prophet Jeremiah spoke about.
Jeremiah 12:5 "If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?"
Horses represent spiritual power-in the Church apostolic power and in Satan's kingdom the power of darkness.
The floodplain of the Jordan is historically known as the battleground between Israel, or God's people, and their enemies.
The horses that Jeremiah talked about represent the rulers of darkness that the apostle Paul identifies in:
Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
If the footmen (lower level demons) have worn God's people out, how can we contend (war) with the rulers of darkness in the heavenlies (spirit realm)?
Unless the Lord helps us we will not have victory over the rulers of darkness. However, the Lord will help us. He will empower us for warfare. He will lead us in victory because it is written:
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.
The Lord of Hosts will also reveal the plan of the rulers of darkness to His people. The promise He has given for 2012 is found in:
Isaiah 45:3 I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.
The total of the number of this scripture is 12, and the treasures of darkness will provide the Lord's instruction for war and will also reveal Satan's plans for the rulers of darkness.
The Lord's horses represent apostolic power for war (Revelation 19:11-15). Apostolic power for war will come to the Church under God's divine government. Zechariah 10:1-3 tells us that at the time of the latter rain, which is in the third day of Christ (Hosea 6:3), the Lord will make His people as "His royal horse in battle."
The royal (kingly) horses will defeat the rulers of darkness and put them to shame.
Zechariah 10:5 They shall be like mighty men, who tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle. They shall fight because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be put to shame.
Victory is assured by the word of the Lord and the sign in the earth, which was released on Christmas Day, the movie with the title of "War Horse."
God's divine government will be established in a time of intense spiritual warfare. The good news is that we win if we fight the good fight of faith.
