Bill Burns: The Spirit of God Has Announced, "A Door in Heaven Is Open!"
The Lord says, "There is a threshold before you, and I invite you to step through without hesitation. Come boldly before the throne, for entrance has been given to you. Fear not, little ones, but come into My glory for the times of refreshing. Step through the door. I declare to you that a new door in Heaven is being opened. I have prepared and called forth and released it by My Spirit. I say to you that the only way to enter in is by the door, and you do this by faith and as you trust in Me.
"Leave the past behind – the heartache of old – for you have been in a wilderness; but I say that the wilderness has a purpose. It is in the wilderness that you get to know Me. In the wilderness I strengthen you. In the wilderness I feed you with Heaven's bread. In the wilderness I bring forth the water from the Living Rock. In your wanderings you have learned of Me and found Me in a fresh way.
"You must rise up and walk in obedience, for it is written that the children of Israel refused to follow My direction because of unbelief. I say now, gird up the loins of your faith; the door is open and the threshold is before you. It is but a small step of faith, and you will be transported into the newness of life and into the place that I am taking you.
"In this place I will give bread, and I will give living water. You shall be transformed. You shall be renewed. You shall be healed. You shall walk into your destiny, for I have ordained it and spoken it forth. Now I am revealing it to you that you may simply believe and receive that which I am giving," says the Lord. The Spirit of God has announced that a door in Heaven is open!
Revelation 4:1, "After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in Heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, 'Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.'"
The door of revelation is now open to those who, like John, are seeking to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth (John 4:23). John was worshiping in spirit (Revelation 1:10) when the Lord said, "Come up here." Those who go through the open door will receive the revelation that the Lord is now releasing.
Marsha Burns: Greater Levels Ahead
The following is a prophetic understanding of what is in store for us.
Spiritual Hunger and Growth
Greater revelation and insights will come with regard to the work of the Spirit. Spiritual hunger will develop for those who deliberately feed on spiritual substance and maintain focus by keeping their thoughts on the things of the Spirit. This will create rapid growth. (Public Domain Pictures)
Matthew 5:6, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled."
Train your spiritual muscle through repeated exercise and discipline. The outcome will be worth the effort. Whether you realize it or not, you have been in a time of intense spiritual training. Even though you have experienced great trials, you are now stronger in faith and perseverance than ever. Watch for a new level of anointing and a greater sense of purpose.
The Lord says, "I am bringing you to a new place of effectiveness, not only in life experience but in spiritual awareness as well. Go with the flow. I will lead the way."
Spiritual maturity will come when reactions in the flesh are overcome. Live in spiritual reality by taking the time to know the difference between flesh and Spirit.
There will be a more pronounced separation between the chosen, faithful followers of Christ who walk in the Spirit, and the religious, carnal Christians.
2 Corinthians 6:17, "Therefore come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you."
Beware of the Lies That Lead to Fear
Proverbs 3:25-26, "Do not be afraid of sudden terror, nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; for the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught."
Be on the alert for temptations to believe lies that lead to FEAR:
Lost Voices Found & Clearer Vision
Many prophets who have lost their voice, so to speak, will find it again and bring forth profound prophetic direction to the Body of Christ.
Spiritual vision will also be more profound in the way of prophetic dreams, visions, wisdom and understanding in accessing the realms of glory.
Ephesians 1:17, "...That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him."
Staying Present & Walking in New Stability
Many have received prophetic words in the past that have not come to fruition. A great number of those words emanated from the flesh or carnal understanding and became fantasy. Those false promises must be released so that focus on spiritual reality can be re-established. It is time to be released from the bondage of disappointment. Stay in the present and stop waiting for or expecting fulfillment that only exists in the future.
Now is the time to simplify areas of life that have become complex; at the same time, a greater sense of security and order will be established.
Proverbs 1:33, "But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil."
The Lord says, "I am making a way for you to come to a level of stability, the likes of which you have never known. This stability will produce clarity and greater ease in accomplishing all that I have given you responsibility for." (Photo via Unsplash)
Don't disdain the challenges that present themselves. Learn obedience through suffering. Identify and restate the nature of the challenge to discern and understand the path of obedience.
Hebrews 5:8, "...Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered."
Leaving the Path of Negativity
Forgive and release others. Unforgiveness will obstruct blessing and prosperity in the Kingdom. You will continue to have ample opportunities to overcome offense and to forgive when rejection arises. This will strengthen your spiritual position and remove hindering assignments.
The Lord says, "Let Me deal with those places where you have something to prove. This stems from pride as a way of dealing with insecurity and rejection. But, you are neither insecure nor rejected in My Kingdom. Let your trust in Me become as solid as the cornerstone of your foundation. I am your strength in weakness; your help in times of trouble."
You can now make excellent progress in walking in the Spirit instead of allowing negativity to rule.
Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things."
Refusing the Fear of Lack & Embracing the Realm of Blessing
"Allow Me to enter into your need with a blessing. In order to do so, you must deal with your fear of lack. Trust Me to provide so that you lack nothing," says the Lord. "You have been set and established in the realm of blessing. What I bless is blessed, and no man can undermine or derail you from My plans and purposes. I have chosen you and will do all of My will. My word shall not return to Me void."
Isaiah 55:11, "So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it."
