2016-A SEASON OF LIGHT by Bill Burns–January 4, 2016:
You are entering into a season of light. The light that brings revelation and reveals My presence is upon you. Even though darkness is increasing on earth, My glory shall rest upon those who are Mine, says the Lord. You shall begin to shine forth in My kingdom, so be filled with joy. For, it is the season to do so. Isaiah 60:1-2 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
This scripture is spoken of prophetically in Isaiah 21:11-12 where the Lord asks a question of the prophets: “Watchmen what of the night (darkness)?” The watchman says, “The morning (light) comes in the darkness (night).
And, then to the prophets the Lord says, “Return to Me, come back to your calling, and then inquire of Me; ask and it (My word) shall be given.”
The light that is coming will come with the prophetic word that is pure.
2 Peter 1:19-21 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
The light that guides us in the darkness that is all around us will be given to us by the Lord.
Revelation 2:28 “I will give him the Morning Star.” Prophetic light!
Signs of Confirmation
1. On June 30th of 2015 the Star of Bethlehem was visible. It was over 2,000 years ago that it was first seen. In Matthew 2:2 the wise men said, “We have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
2. The Christmas Moon: A full moon on December 25 is a sign of the light of this season. The moon is a symbol of the Church, which is the reflected light of the Sun. (Malachi 4:2)
The Purpose of the Light is to enable us to see clearly, to know God’s presence, and to receive revelation (understanding) and inspiration, and to reveal destiny.
Satan has been hindering our ability to see clearly.
The Lord says that the enemy has been bringing a spiritual fog into your spiritual atmosphere. This has caused you to be unable to see clearly. It has created doubt around the things that you are making decisions for. It has caused you to be unclear about that which you are to pray and that which you are to do. But, the Lord says, “Watch now for I bring My wind. And, I will remove the fog, which has encased you. I will remove from you the obstruction that has kept you from seeing clearly. You are now entering into the season of light and the glory of this season shall come with great clarity, great purpose of mind and the greatness of strength of the anointing of My Spirit. Expect Me to clear the atmosphere that has hindered you so that you may see clearly all things, says the Almighty.”
Healing and Provision will come with the light of this season.
Small Straws by Marsha Burns: In a vision I saw a very great multitude of broken people, and I could feel God’s work of repairing and bringing to perfection each individual who asked Him for help. It was a deep, spiritual work for everyone who made an effort to come into His presence and extend even the smallest amount of faith. It was a profound and abiding work. Powerful! Luke 11:10 “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”
Small Straws by Marsha Burns: For those of you who have been absolutely obedient to do all that I have asked of you in recent days and weeks, I am coming to you to reward you. I will open the heavens and pour out My glory upon you in ways that you would never have considered, says the Lord. Watch and be amazed.
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.
John 3:2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Colossians 1:12 Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
If God is providing the light for us in this season, then we must walk in His light if we are to receive the blessings of the season.
1 John 1:5-7 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
We must also wear the armor of the season.
Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
Fight the good fight, knowing that the enemy will be revealed by the light.
And, we must watch!
1 Thessalonians 5:5-6 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
Ephesians 5:13-14 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”
The New Anointing for this season is “Strength For Victory.” This anointing will bring the power required for breakthrough and victory.
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.
This new season is bringing a new anointing that will create the next phase of existence.
Small Straws by Marsha Burns: You are about to enter a new phase of existence, but there are things that need to be finished before you can forge ahead. Make the best use of your time and opportunities to deal with issues that would hinder you in the future, says the Lord. I will give you discernment, wisdom, and guidance to do all that is necessary. Isaiah 45:2 I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.
This anointing will change the spiritual atmosphere that we live in. Doubt and fear will not be able to hinder the new level of faith that this anointing will bring.
The process of divine order will continue the progression of God’s purposes among His people.
We find ourselves continuing to be ordered by God so that we can fulfill our destiny for such a time as this.
Small Straws by Marsha Burns: If you are to live in My Spirit and establish yourself in divine order, you must do all that I ask, says the Lord. You, My people, have come a long way, but you must push through until your obedience is fulfilled. Don’t stop short of your goal, but rather push through to complete freedom from all that holds you back. 1 Corinthians 9:24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.
The End Times
I believe that we are living in the end times, or in the words of our Lord in Matthew 28:20 “I am with you always even to the end of the age.”
And, the apostle Paul referred to these days in:
2 Timothy 3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
In these last days Satan will continue to promote fear and unbelief as they relate to the current events – events such as terrorism, civil unrest, adverse weather and economic decline.
However, we must realize that God has provided the antidote for overcoming Satan’s activity.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Ephesians 3:12 “In Jesus we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.” Read Hebrews chapter 11, and renew your position of faith.
1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.
Meditate on and apply these scriptures to your circumstances, and you will be victorious.
Judgment will continue to manifest because of the unrighteous decrees, which governments make.
Isaiah 10:1 “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, who write misfortune, which they have prescribed.”
God is now bringing His wind to remove the fog, which has kept you from seeing clearly. This will continue into the spring of the year and then He will bring His spiritual rain to wash away the dust (defilement) left by Satan’s attacks.
Zechariah 10:1 Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone.
Acts 14:17 “Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.”
Ask for God’s rain because His blessings will come with it. Your new season will be filled with fruitfulness (blessings).
This season will bring opportunities to grow spiritually as a Christian. The Lord will be with you to lead and guide you through these tumultuous times. You will be changed by the glory of the One who will be with you.
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.
The new season has begun. You will not be disappointed if you choose to take this spiritual journey into 2016.
