SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
You are about to get unstuck. Spiritual blinders will be taken off so that you can see clearly, and roadblocks will be removed to allow you to move forward without hindrance. Things that you have tried to accomplish for quite some time will now be possible. I speak to you of a new level of freedom and insight that you have craved. Seek My face for wisdom and come into My presence for restoration. Renew your partnership with Me. 
 
Psalm 27:8 When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
September 25, 2020. What you are doing is wasting time. I know It seems profitable, but it isn’t. I also know it is hard to stop. You know what you are doing because you have done it so many times before. But things have changed and you need to keep up with the change. You will have to learn this new thing. It is before you and it seems much more overwhelming than it is. Try it and see.
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NASB) “Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 25, 2020. So many questions are running through your head. You want answers about who, what, where, when and how My mandates are going to be accomplished in your life. You are seeing obstacles with your natural eyes, yet in your spirit you have the faith to move mountains. Nothing is impossible, but there are distrustful thoughts that thwart your reliance in Me. It took time to get where you are. Be patient. Hold on to My promises.
Galatians 6:9 (TLB) “And let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t get discouraged and give up.”  Kevin Robinson
 
September 25, 2020. These are My high holy days. During these days of celebration, I want you to get right with each other. To live in unforgiveness is to put yourself in prison. You are not necessarily hurting that one you can’t forgive, but you are putting yourself in bondage. Just say “I forgive you.” Say it over and over until you mean it. You will know you have truly forgiven when there is no negative emotion associated with that person.
Matthew 18:34-35 (NASB) “And his lord, moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he should repay all that was owed him.  My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.”  Robin Robinson Bohlin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Pay attention to subtle reminders of past mistakes or bad judgment calls. Circumstances will come up again as a test to see whether you grasped what you needed to learn. Internal work is the order of the day to bring you to a higher spiritual plateau. Your interaction with this opportunity can easily be missed, so be on high alert and get ready to move forward. 
 
Proverbs 8:32 “Now therefore, listen to Me, My children, for blessed are those who keep My ways.”
September 24, 2020. Handle what is before you. Do not put it off any longer. I know you are tempted to do just that, but it will be a bigger problem the longer you put it off. You do not see it now, but when you get to where you think it is good to handle, you will see it has grown. I know it is not a problem that will shake the earth, but discipline yourself now.
Hebrews 12:11 (NASB) “All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 24, 2020. Have you noticed how many times I have put you right smack dab in the middle of things you thought or said you would never do? Do you see the irony of how I put you in places that make you feel uncomfortable and uneasy? It also lets you see the power of judgments. Be careful with your words. Speak confidently of things you will do with My help, instead of what you won’t do.
Philippians 4:13 (AMPC) “I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].”  Kevin Robinson
 
September 24, 2020. You have grown impatient.  My question is, “Why?” If you will be patient and stay the course that I have laid out, you will begin to see a change for the better in that thing that has caused you to become impatient. You see, My timetable is different from yours because I see the end from the beginning. It takes faith in Me and trust in Me to allow My plan to be accomplished. Trust My Word!
Isaiah 46:10 (NASB) “Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure.”  Jonas Bohlin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Set yourself in a protected place so that what you see and hear is godly and uplifting. Otherwise you could give in to contention, which is not good for you or those around you. I would have you find a righteous place in which to abide, a place of walking and living in My Spirit
 
Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

IT HAS ALREADY!!
Jeffrey Stewart

** Believing something WILL HAPPEN will always leave room for doubt.  Believing something HAS happened leaves NO ROOM for doubt. **

There is NO LIMIT to what can the Lord can do through a believer who teaches His heart to believe what he says HAS ALREADY COME TO PASS.  And you teach your heart to believe BY WHAT YOU SAY. That is why we receive Healing when we speak and then believe BY HIS STRIPES YE WERE HEALED.  We speak as if WE ALREADY RECEIVED IT and WE SHALL HAVE IT.

This is the key to having faith to command literal mountains to move  You see: The renewing of the mind by having it transformed by His Word means receiving a new mind with new thoughts. His Mind and His Thoughts are contained in His Word.  He wants us to cease thinking as men and to begin thinking as His Sons.  Jesus is an ETERNAL being. A Timeless being. So renewing our mind meanss for US to learn to think like TIMELESS beings and SPEAK and PRAY like TIMELESS beings. so believing what we have prayed for has ALREADY been given, what we believe for has ALREADY occurred, NOT WILL OCCUR, is the secret to walking in a MUCH MUCH higher level of faith.

That is why Jesus taught:
Mark 11:24,25 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you HAVE RECEIVED it, and it will be yours”  When we cease BELIEVING that WE WILL receive answers, and begin believing WE HAVE ALREADY received answers, we will see PRAYERS answered on a SCALE never seen!

You will notice that Jesus uses WHATEVER here. Any limitation to the scale of the prayer IS ON OUR END, not His.  The Father says:  “If an evangelist prays for Me to bring him ten lost people who will be saved, I will bring him ten, if instead he asks for a million and believes, I will bring him a million. My people limit me by praying small prayers. No longer pray according to what YOU believe that I can do, but pray according to what I believe that I can do.”

“Caleb asked for a mountain and Caleb got a mountain. How many are asking for a hill?” Jesus says: “Part of My Bride making herself ready is making herself ready to rule and reign with Me in the Next Age.  So I am beginning to teach her how to operate As I operate.  To think as I think.  To believe as I believe.  For She will be My Partner in establishing My Father’s will on the earth.  We will work together to restore the earth during the Millennium.  To restore nature, so that the lion will lie down with the lamb.  To make it so earth reflects heaven as it was created to be.  For the day of My Wedding is at hand.  And My Bride will rule and reign at My Side, bringing great Glory to My Father, and Great Joy to My Heart.”

Comments He gave to add: During the Millennium we will be walking in a much higher level of the miraculous because one of our assignments will be to help restore the earth after the devastation that occurs, which you read about in the Book of Revelation, before Jesus returns to rule and reign. So He is beginning to teach us now the things that we will need to know THEN. Those who are faithful to learn the things He is teaching us in this season will be used the most in the NEXT season for His Bride on the earth, The Millennium. Notice that Romans 4:17 says that God calls things that be not as though they WERE, which is Past Tense and not as though they WILL BE which is future tense.

September 23, 2020. Be on the alert. Your enemy, the devil, is prowling, stealing what is rightfully yours. He is seeking to harass you and those you love. Draw back into Me. Instead of speeding up, slow down. This has been going on for a bit without your notice. He has been stealing your joy, your peace, even your purpose. You have gone down in attitude. Get back into praise. Get back into a good attitude. Get back into My Word.
1 Peter 5:8-9 (NASB) “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your belief, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 23, 2020. Several times I have called you to go on a fast. Through obedience and humility, you saw breakthroughs you thought were impossible. Pressing days are quickly approaching. It is your desire to fast. Wait on My timing. Listen attentively to Me concerning what you are fasting about, for how long and specifically for what purpose. Divide your bread with the hungry. Give to the hungry your dough/food, or money for what you would have eaten. Do it unto Me.
Isaiah 58:6-7 (NIV) “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter-when you see the naked, to clothe them and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?”  Kevin Robinson
 
September 23, 2020. It is time to get your praise on. I know you don’t feel like it, but praise will lift the spirit of heaviness. I want you to praise Me in the morning, praise Me in the evening, praise Me when the sun goes down. The enemy cannot stand your singing or your worship. Get up now and raise your hands, spin with joy, clap your hands, do all the things that David did. Bow low to Me.

Isaiah 61:3 (KJV21) “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.”  Robin Robinson Bohlin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
I speak to those who have become exhausted and drained of physical and mental resources. Separate yourself for a time from the things that have used you up. If you try to wrangle your way through this time by sheer natural strength, things will only get worse. Come to Me for a time of refreshing where you will find rest for your soul. 
 
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
 
Part 1 of 2
IT HAS ALREADY!!
Jeffrey Stewart
The Key to having belief for commanding REAL mountains to move.  Belief is not speaking and believing that IT WILL come to pass. Belief is speaking and believing THAT IT HAS ALREADY come to pass. Jesus said “Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you HAVE RECEIVED it and you SHALL have it”. If you BELIEVE YOU HAVE RECEIVED you will SPEAK AS IF you have received. Past tense. So many keep what they ask for IN THE FUTURE by speaking of it as if it is IN THE FUTURE. We interact with an ETERNAL God. There is no future with Him. Only NOW.

How many have you heard say, “I’m hoping to receive my healing” for YEARS but have never received it? That’s one reason why. They keep putting their answer IN THE FUTURE with THEIR WORDS.
Have you ever wondered what the legal basis for healing was in the Old Testament? The same as that of the New Testament. But how can that be? Because in God’s eyes JESUS WAS SLAIN BEFORE the foundation (creation) of the World. THERE IS NO TIME WITH HIM. So our prayers MUST reflect that fact.

When you believe that the mountain has ALREADY jumped into the sea at your command it WILL do so. The Key to having belief to command REAL mountains to move Mark 11:22, 23 says, “And Jesus answering, saith unto them, Have belief in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

From above, again: ” Belief is speaking and believing THAT IT HAS ALREADY come to pass.”
This is the KEY to eliminating doubt and thus unlocking mountain moving faith.  If you SPEAK and BELIEVE it has ALREADY HAPPENED, then there WILL BE NO DOUBT because in your HEART IT HAS ALREADY OCCURRED.

September 22, 2020. Again, it is good that you are not quitting. You will not be able to accomplish what you really want if you quit. I know it is hard. It is almost completely opposite to the way you have been going.  You have tried to go back to the old way and that simply did not work. So get it out of your mind as much as you can. The new way is hard, but you can do this.
Isaiah 43:19 (ESV) “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 22, 2020. Today is the day of equinox in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Autumn in the North and Spring in the South. Day and night are of approximate equal proportions this time of year all over the Earth. Seek Me for obtaining stability in all your affairs. Just like you have equilibrium in your brain to keep you from stumbling, receive steadiness across every facet of your life. My balancing scales are perfectly calibrated. I am Poise.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV) “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:.”  Kevin Robinson
 
September 22, 2020. You have misunderstood some of the things that happened in your life. I know they were not all good, but they were important in bringing about the long-term effects that are important in your life today. My Son endured many things at the hands of those who hated Him. You now are enduring things because the world still hates Me. Those events, while not easy or pleasant to endure, are used to demonstrate My character to the world.
1 Peter 5:10-11 (NASB) “After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all favour, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.  To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.”  Jonas Bohlin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:
In this season, says the Lord, I will astonish you. For, I am about to demonstrate the power of My kingdom in your lives. And, as you rise up and say, “Here I am, Lord, come to me”, indeed I shall visit you from on high and the manifestation of My gifts shall begin to unveil themselves in your life. The results will be a quickened faith, a faith that brings you higher into the kingdom, a faith that compels you to live under My divine rule and challenges you to come boldly before My throne of grace. Get ready for that which I am about to do. Position yourself to step fully into this new season. For, it shall be that the glory of My kingdom and the fire and the power of My Spirit will now come to you.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
When you encounter delays, do not try to force anything.  Let your current circumstances play out.  You have heard that the devil is in the details, but that is not true. I am in your details when you commit your life to Me and I will give you the guidance you need to succeed.  Hold fast to what you know is true and trust Me to direct your steps.
 
Psalm 119:133 Direct my steps by Your Word and let no iniquity have dominion over me.
September 21, 2020. Stay the course. You are right on target. You know where you are going, not completely but you are going in the right direction. The reason for it is that you are doing what you heard Me say. You are following directions exactly. This is good. You will end up in the right place at the right time. It was not this way the last time you faced something like this, but it is this time. Forget last time. All is good now.
Philippians 3:12-14 (ESV) “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me His own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 21, 2020. Stop projecting all kinds of negative vibes upon others and situations before you. If you are not careful, you can sabotage My efforts for improvement in your life. Choose to break the cycle of negativity plaguing your movement forward in My kingdom. You can be and sometimes are your worst critic. You have habitually become a naysayer to a lot of changes that I am bringing about. That’s right, I am assembling beneficial conditions around you.
Romans 8:28 (VOICE) “We are confident that God is able to orchestrate everything to work toward something good and beautiful when we love Him and accept His invitation to live according to His plan.”  Kevin Robinson
 
September 21, 2020. Just as Elijah passed his mantle to Elisha, you will surely pass your mantle and anointing to someone. To the Elijahs I say: Be selective because there are many who desire this position. I have selected one who will stand in your place and walk in even a greater anointing. Be watchful and I will reveal this person to you. To the Elishas I say: pursue your Elijah to the end and you will receive the anointing.

1 Kings 19:19 (NASB) “So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, while he was plowing with twelve pairs of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth. And Elijah passed over to him and threw his mantle on him”  Robin Robinson Bohlin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Don’t be in a hurry. Every moment of every day will produce opportunities to know yourself and to know Me better. When you rush through life, you are likely to miss some important details. Those details will come back around until you have gleaned the value and applied it to your life. Pay attention and be aware of what I am showing you.
 
Proverbs 5:1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom; lend your ear to my understanding.
WISDOM FOR TRANSITION by Bill Burns:
The new season begins with the Feast of Trumpets, so we are in transition from one year to another. It is a time period in which we, as Christians, move into the next season. This time of transition is the period of time from the Rosh Hashanah to January of the next calendar year.
The Purpose of Transition is two-fold:
1. To make sure you are receiving the promises of the old season.
2. To prepare yourself to move into the new season by paying attention to the prophetic word and the signs that God has given to confirm His Word.
Mark 16:20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the Word through the accompanying signs.
Don’t forget that you must possess the promises God has given and be reminded that the enemy will try to steal or delay those promises.
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.
This is a time for belief to be activated because the promises are yes (to be understood) and amen (to be received).
1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has over the world-our belief.
Promise:
3 John verse 2: Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Prosper is to be successful in all things and to be in health. This will be a season of reward for faithfulness in the face of hardships.
Isaiah 40:10 Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him and His work before Him.
The Anointing:
The anointing for this season is strength for victory and will bring the power required for breakthrough and victory.
Nehemiah 8:10 “The joy of the Lord is your strength.”
This anointing will bring the joy of the Lord for warfare and victory. Joy enables you to fight the good fight of belief so that victory is assured.
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.
Psalm 92:4 For you, Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
Psalm 47:1 Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!
Declare your victory! This new anointing will bring confidence, which is exactly what you need in the time of transition so that you may receive God’s promises and to position yourself for the journey of the new season.
Don’t forget this word of wisdom:
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.
Ephesians 1:13-14 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the Word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
Stay connected!  The bridge by which we cross over into the new requires that you leave the baggage of the past behind.
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.
Wisdom for Transition:
Set things in order. Deal with unbelief, failures, disappointment and discouragement. It’s not over. You still have this time frame of transition to receive all that God has promised you so that you will be ready and equipped for the next season!
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
The Trumpet:
Because the Lord has said, “Behold, I will do a new thing, now it will spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” So, go boldly into this new season with new anointing and trust Me to lead you into the blessings and fullness of it!

Word of the Lord Sept. 19, 20

YEAR OF EXTREMES by Marsha Burns:
Unity with others will be possible when there is unity with God through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit.
John 17:20-23 “I [Jesus] do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one and that the world may know that You have sent Me and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
Love of God
We can only love others when we know the love of God. John 15:12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

SMALL STRAWS:
I speak to tale-bearers who are addicted to gossip as you share things that are none of your business. Treat others with the same love and respect that you desire for yourself. I tell you honestly that you are sowing seeds that will produce a harvest you will not enjoy. Be done with the pride that comes from judging others and set your mind and heart on things of the Spirit.
This is a time of sifting and sorting. There are things to keep and things to throw away. You are already aware of this process, but you have not finished the course. This exercise will not only be in the physical realm, but will also be an activity of the soul. Internal work will continue with greater clarity than ever, as you experience more spiritual refinement.
Great spiritual revelations will be released to those who are genuine truth-seekers. Revelation will come to you when you set your heart to have a strong, personal relationship with Me and set your priorities in proper order. I say to you, stay strong and focused.
You have heard about Me and you have read My Word, but you now have an unparalleled opportunity to know Me on a very personal and powerful level. Now is the time to grow up spiritually and have a first-hand experience. 1 John 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things and is true and is not a lie and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

The challenges and changes you have endured will usher in opportunities to begin again.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
I will lead you forth with great favour and give you the wisdom and ability to do all that your destiny requires. Believe it and receive it!
The coming spiritual year will be more of the same in many ways. However, you can make choices that keep you from division and strife. You can choose to walk and live in the Spirit and to love one another as you are loved!
September 19, 2020. You were supposed to have stopped a long time ago, but you have lingered for quite some time now. It isn’t too late. I know it is hard to quit, but you need to for the sake of other things I have for you to do. Watch your time. The rest of what you are to do in order to be successful needs to fall into place like pieces of a puzzle. So stop now before it is too late.
John 10:27 (NKJV) “My sheep hear My voice and I know them and they follow Me.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 19, 2020. The evidence of My influence in your body, soul and spirit is no accident. Do not take for granted all that I have done. When you pay close attention to your advancement in your world, you will see that I am actively at work on your behalf. I have sworn by Myself (because there is no greater name) to work on your behalf to cause everything to work together for the good of those who love Me and are called according to My purposes.
Romans 8:28 (NASB) “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”  Jonas Bohlin

Word of the Lord Sept. 18, 20

YEAR OF EXTREMES by Marsha Burns:
Today at sundown begins the two-day celebration of Rosh Hashanah. The Hebrew word Rosh means “head” or “beginning.” Hashanah means “the year.” This reference is found only once in the Old Testament in Ezekiel 40:1 with the words at the beginning of the year. Rosh Hashanah is more commonly known as the Feast of Trumpets. It marks the beginning of the spiritual new year, a special time set apart for a new beginning with the Lord.
My own tradition for the Feast of Trumpets is to seek the Lord for prophetic insights with regard to the coming year, which I will do my best to share with you.
Year of Extremes
There will be ups and downs. Middle ground will be hard to find. Expect extremes in weather patterns and in human behavior. There will be a lack of moderation and a departure from tradition and basic common sense in many cases. Your stability will come in having a God-connection.
Mixed Bag
In a vision I saw a brown, paper bag of things that shouldn’t be together, like a half-eaten sandwich, a shoe, a cat toy, a book, and I heard the Lord say that the nature of the year to come will be a mixed bag or a diverse assortment of things.
Unity of Opposites
Unity of opposites is defined as situations or opinions which are opposite to each other yet dependent on each other. There wouldn’t be an up without a down, right without wrong, or good without evil. The way to escape the division that results from opposing viewpoints is to seek the Spirit of Truth. Those who do not want to choose one side or the other have only one option and that is to walk in the Spirit, which is above the pride of human opinion.
Unity of the Spirit
Unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace is an endeavor that needs to be carefully preserved. It opposes all of man’s ideas of unity, which is usually to find “our people.” We search for those who have the same interests, beliefs, and goals that we embrace. But it always produces division with those who do not hold those same values and ideals. Therefore, we become tribal as we seek to join a group, party, or sect that we can identify with. Tribalism is the behavior and attitudes that stem from strong loyalty to one’s own tribe or social group, producing an in-group and an out-group where love is replaced with hatred, often leading to violence. Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins.
Ephesians 4:1-6 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all. But to each one of us favour was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
The way out of a position of strife and division is to refuse to allow carnal nature, or flesh, to rule. Then, you can learn to walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:16-17 I say then: Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
September 18, 2020. Opportunity is soon coming up to share of My goodness. It will be startling to some as they don’t see what has happened as good. What happened is not good, but out of very hard situations, I make something good. They will eventually see the evidence of goodness. Do not hold back. Tell it all. Some is strange, but much of life is strange and those hearing will see how I turn strange things into good.
Psalm 145:9 (ESV) “The LORD is good to all and His mercy is over all that He has made.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 18, 2020. Delight, delight, delight. Take pleasure with Me. Let your life be filled with the fullness of My joy and gladness. Young children have no problem asking for things they want, do they? It is built within your DNA to want things. Sometimes there needs to be safeguarding for things not beneficial for children, but parents enjoy giving to their children. Become like a child as you once were. Frolic at My feet. Take pleasure. It is My pleasure.
2 Samuel 6:14-15 (NASB) “And David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouting and the sound of the trumpet.”  Kevin Robinson

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
To those of you who are spiritually sensitive, the conditions of this present time have overwhelmed you and made you want to retreat. And, I say to you that when you retreat you must find your place of safety in Me. Let your life in the Spirit spring up into a fresh, new beginning that will produce strength and hope for the days to come.
 
Isaiah 58:11 The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
September 17, 2020. All you have to do is ask. I am right there with bucket loads of wisdom, and understanding, really more than you need. I know you seek these like you do silver. This is good. I will grant your request, because I love you. You will see My plan for you unfold before your eyes. You will still be amazed at how well I take care of you and those you love. Haven’t you always been amazed? Yes, you have.
Proverbs 2:2-5 (NASB) “Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 17, 2020. A spiritual father had a saying that I genuinely appreciated. It was this, “don’t sweat the small stuff, because it’s all small stuff.” Troublesome little irritants that keep bothering you are reminders of his statement. Those words of wisdom are timeless in their nature. Annoyances are a way of life. The way you handle them can be a whole different story. Keep your heart, mind and soul set upon My ways and watch bothersome issues quickly fade away.
Proverbs 4:25 (TPT) “Set your gaze on the path before you. With fixed purpose, looking straight ahead, ignore life’s distractions.”   Kevin Robinson
 
September 17, 2020. You are My agent in the earth today, but you are only able to emit the things that are inside you. You have heard Me say that you reap what you sow, but I tell you that you cannot sow what you do not have. Be careful where you obtain the seed that you sow. Ask of Me and I will pour into you much fruit from which you may choose to sow into those around you.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NASB) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”  Jonas Bohlin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: You can make significant headway if you will take advantage of opportunities presented as well as  the help that is available to you. Help will come both naturally and supernaturally. I am your very present help, and you can call on Me and lean on Me.

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

September 16, 2020. Your heart is full of thanksgiving. My child, this is good to Me and pleases Me, but it is also very good for you. Thoughts and emotions of thanksgiving release endorphins in your body which bathe your cells in good biochemicals. It promotes health for your whole body. Whatever is happening in your life, do all you can to stay in a state of thanksgiving. My Word says, “In everything give thanks.” I am working on your behalf, precious one.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (AMP) “Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].”  Bev Robinson

September 16, 2020. You are in essence paralyzing yourself. Because of that pesky old issue of fear, you are self-anesthetizing. You wonder why you are stuck and not going anywhere? It is the dread of what may or may not happen that is keeping you motionless. Satan has convinced you that you will lose in every way imaginable. He knows you better than you know yourself from a fleshly perspective. Counter his ploys with trust and belief. Believe!

Hebrews 11:6 (NOG) “No one can please God without belief. Whoever goes to God must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.”  Kevin Robinson

September 16, 2020. For soon you will see signs in the heavens and on the earth below; all creation is groaning for Christ’s return. Look up and see the marvelous happenings; do not be caught sleeping or unaware. Be as the virgins who have their lamps full and are awaiting the Bridegroom. Are you keeping watch, are you preparing yourself for His return? Bring others with you before the door shuts – now is the time!

Matthew 25:1, 13 (TPT) “As the time of My coming draws near, heaven’s kingdom realm can be compared to ten maidens who took their oil lamps and went outside to meet the bridegroom and his bride…That is the reason you should always stay awake and be alert, because you don’t know the day or hour when the Bridegroom will appear.”  Robin Robinson Bohlin
