THINGS FOR 2019—December 30, 2018—Marsha Burns:

 

It is time to REBOOT, which is to shut down and start again.  A reboot doesn’t necessarily erase memory, but is a one-step solution in dealing with various issues.   And, if we spiritualize this concept, it affords an opportunity for a new beginning. 

 

Things from the past that caused trauma need to be filed away in the archives of memory so that this fresh start is uncluttered from past events.  The substance of God’s healing virtue is available to make this possible.

 

The veil of the flesh must be torn or removed in order for there to be greater spiritual clarity.  We need to get past carnal perspectives to see what the Lord is showing us.

 

Then, there will be an elevation to new heights as well as a deeper place in the Spirit.  A more elaborate spectrum of Spirit living will be available to us—higher, deeper, wider; up, down, left and right that will remove previous boundaries and barriers.  There will be a greater sense of purpose as our hearts become one with God’s heart.

 

Isaiah 54:2-3a  "Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.  For you shall expand to the right and to the left…”

 

Watch for contrast—the state of being strikingly different from something else.  The contrast will become more drastic; deeper darkness and greater light as the chasm continues to widen, creating greater separation and division.  We will each have to be vigilant so that we can make good decisions and choose the best thing.

 

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

 

I heard the Lord say:  Maximize the positive effect on those around you.  Minimize the negative effect.  Do not waste time on self-pity.  Make the most of your time with Me and with others, and do not squander opportunities to make a difference. 

 

I am going to share five visions that I think are profound concerning the new year…

 

Vision 1:  I saw a vast number of people sorting through garbage at a dump site.  And I was reminded of the vision I had some time ago (perhaps 2015) of following a path around a huge garbage dump that finally led to a lake and then up a steep mountain.

 

In that vision the garbage dump was symbolic of politics, and mostly having to do with garbage from the polarized media.  So, the people sorting through the garbage are those who have gotten stuck or are addicted to political rhetoric in an effort to find the truth.

 

For those who finally skirted this mess, there was a lake of deep spiritual truth and refreshment.  It is also a place of divine revelation and extensive, meaningful internal work. 

 

I believe that those who have been able to get around the garbage and have done the deep dive in the lake will now be able to begin their ascent to the heights where they can know God more personally and intimately.

 

Vision 2:  I saw a swimmer with an oxygen tank, fins and wetsuit.  He was swimming in a deep underwater cave system.  The beauty of the caves was evident in his headlamp as he moved through tunnels into great expanses that were teeming with life.  I soon realized that this was a type and symbol of deep, spiritual exploration and inspiration.

 

Psalms 95:4  In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the heights of the hills are His also.

 

Vision 3:  I saw a window through which I could see another window and another and another; each with increasing clarity of the view beyond.  There was a refining process that produced a spiritual awareness and purity of life.

 

Zechariah 13:9 I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, “This is My people”; and each one will say, “The Lord is my God."

 

Vision 4:  For those who are called as warriors to fight against the enemy, I had a vision of warships in the clouds that looked like the waves of the sea.  This to me was a symbol of waging war on a higher level of effectiveness.  I believe this includes understanding the range of weapons that we have access to (like the substance of resistance in my message of 12/16).

 

In an unusual spiritual encounter, I could hear the battle raging between God and evil.  It was about the choices we make and the results that are so vastly different from one another.  I couldn’t help but wonder why anyone would choose darkness over light or evil over good.  We either pay the price by living in darkness, or reap the reward of living with and for God. 

 

Luke 10:19  "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

 

Vision 5:  I saw three things that mean the same thing:  A bonfire, a lighthouse, and an airport beacon.  We are that light, whether on land, or on the sea or in the air, to show the way to a place of safety in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

 

Psalms 27:5  For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

 

Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

 

Small Straws:

 

When you feel weak, know that I am with you.  I am your enabler.  There will be times when you feel down and out, but I will lift you up and strengthen your body, soul and spirit, says the Lord.  Lean on Me.

 

2 Corinthians 12:9a And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."

 

If you will rise up in Spirit and seek My face, I will show you things that are beyond anything you could have imagined.  I will bring revelation and answer your deepest questions.  I will empower you to do what few have done and deepen your spiritual understanding in ways that will astound you.

 

Your obedience and dedication to do all that I ask will be rewarded.  You are indeed a light in darkness.  Let your light shine brightly!

 

Romans 2:18-19  and [you] know His will, and approve the things that are excellent, being instructed out of the law (word), and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness.

 

Matthew 5:16  "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

 

 

2019:

 

We are in the third millennium, in the second decade, and the ninth year.

 

Nineteen is the sum of 10 and 9 and denotes the perfection of Divine Order connected with judgment—opinions, decisions, justice. 

 

Nine will bring a conclusion to another decade or Divine Completeness.

 

Recap:

 

Reboot—start again.

Greater spiritual clarity.

Opportunities to expand our boundaries with greater sense of purpose.

Watch for more drastic contrast—deeper darkness; greater light.

 

Five visions:

People sorting through garbage—political rhetoric continues.

Swimmer in underwater cave system—spiritual exploration/inspiration.

Windows—increasing spiritual awareness.

Warships in the clouds—higher level of effectiveness in warfare.

Bonfire, lighthouse, airport beacon—We are the light in darkness.

 

2019 will be a year of Divine Completeness.
