The Trumpet by Bill Burns -- November 17, 2008: The instruction to the Church at this time is to get past unbelief. This is a new era, and we must get over disappointment. There is a prevailing sense of unbelief because of disappointment and unanswered prayer. Things that many of us expected to happen didn't. This unbelief must be dealt with before we can receive the rain of this season. God wants us to interact on a new level; not just prayer, but spiritual interaction. The invitation is to move to a new spiritual plateau. The Lord will show us the prophetic implications of the times and seasons. Everything we've been taught was for the purpose of bringing us to prophetic reality, and the anointing will come to produce that prophetic reality in us.
Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns November 16, 2008: The Spirit of the Lord broke in on me and brought someone to mind that has been a reliable prophet, and I believe this person is symbolic of the prophetic church. I had a sense that this person had feelings of being disassociated, lost, disillusioned, and hopeless. There was a disappointment that expectations haven't been met, and a sense of dread or even fear that what had been worked for and hoped for had all been in vain. I believe the enemy is doing all he can to shut the mouths of the prophets again and to keep God's people from exercising their faith. Romans 1:17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."
November 17, 2008: I am calling you to awaken to a fresh sense of purpose and destiny, for I speak to many who have become disillusioned and have drawn back into silence and solace. This is a new day. There is much to be done to establish the reality of My kingdom. Rise up in the Spirit, and I will manifest in wondrous ways to move you forward in divine progression, says the Lord. 1 Timothy 4:14-15 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.
