01 Jan 2019 – The Year of a Great Outpouring of God’s Spirit

Happy New Year!!! 2018 is history and ahead of us lies a year that I believe will see an unprecedented outpouring of God's Spirit. I believe that all across our land, we will hear people declaring "This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel." Hallelujah! Vickie and I want to work together with the Holy Spirit to see this happen in your church in 2019. We can do this in two ways.1. Holy Spirit Rally - In these rallies on Sunday mornings, I give people an opportunity to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. I love seeing the altars filled from side to side with people wanting to receive the promise of the Father. When allowed to have more than a Sunday morning service, I love to preach that there is more than an initial infilling. Be it on a Sunday night or Sunday through Wednesday, our Holy Spirit Rallies direct people into developing a relationship with the One who is called to walk alongside of us.2. Ignite & Unite Conference - This 3 hour Saturday morning conference is designed to ignite the fire of the Holy Spirit in those who minister each week to your children and youth and unify the vision of the entire team. The workshops taught include - The Dangers of the Status Quo, The Holy Spirit on Assignment, Leading Preschoolers into His Presence, The 10 Commandments of the Supernatural, and Flowing in the Anointing. Vickie and I wrap up the conference by laying hands on and praying for each person that attends.  You notice that I haven't mentioned a required fee or contractual agreement. For almost 40 years, we have ministered with the understanding that God is our source and that He will speak to the congregation as the offering is received. For all of these years, God has proven Himself faithful. 2019 is your year! Your city! Your church! Your ministry! I am just an email (billy@billyburns.com) away. Let me hear from you TODAY! Again, happy New Year!!! ...

18 Jun Here’s What God Said …

I know that the following statement will challenge some people's theology but I'll share it anyways. While Vickie and I lived in South Florida, I remember a time when God clearly spoke to me while we were sitting in a movie theater (some people will stop reading after that statement) watching the seemingly endless coming attraction previews. I will never forget Him telling me that I was to start announcing at the opening of our services the coming attractions for that service. When I heard this directive, I had been in the ministry at least 25 years and had never, ever heard anything like this before. In my early days of ministry preparation, there was no class at my Bible college called Ideas Gleaned from a Movie Theater nor was it taught at any children's ministry conference. Heaven was directing me to walk into the service with a confidence that I had heard from heaven and, at the beginning of the service, boldly announce what was going to happen during the service. Here is what you can expect to happen when you make coming attraction preview announcements. First, this will build faith in your spirit as you confidently proclaim what God has shown you in your quiet time with Him throughout the week. Your spirit will feel like a Texas cowboy sitting in a rodeo chute on top of a bucking bronco waiting for the chute's gate to open. You can be confident that something memorable is about to happen! Second, it will build anticipation in those in your service because Jesus is both the author and finisher of our faith. God always delivers what He promises! So, if you are preaching about healing, confidently announce at the beginning of the service that the Healer is in the room and will heal all the sick and infirmed. Then, preach/teach and flow in the anointing. The results will be Jesus being what you have previewed and then preached Him to be. One more note ...

04 May God’s Outpouring TODAY!

When God spoke through the prophet Joel that He would pour out His Spirit upon all flesh, this included the ALL in YOUR church. And, His all really meant all! That's His heartbeat. My question is, do you have the same heartbeat? Do you desire that the children in your children's church and mid-week Bible clubs be filled with God's Spirit and prophesy to their generation? Do you want God's Spirit to move mightily in your youth services? Do you long for the "suddenlies" mentioned in the book of Acts to happen in your adult services? Here's one last question. Would you like to see God's heartbeat demonstrated THIS YEAR? Vickie and I would love to be a part in launching this move of God in your church through a Holy Spirit Rally in 2018. Whether it be through a Sunday morning service or Sunday morning and evening services or a Sunday through Wednesday Rally, we want to join with you to see Joel's prophecy come to pass THIS year in YOUR church. No church is too big or too small. We are just an email away ...

16 Apr God Says YES to Demonstrating His Power TODAY

Not too long ago, I read a powerful statement that I absolutely HAVE, HAVE, HAVE to share with you. It comes from Healing Rays, a book written back in 1932 by the Welch minister George Jeffreys. For those unfamiliar with this great man of God, Jeffreys (1889-1962) _ * Founded one of the first Pentecostal organizations in the United Kingdom, the great Elim Pentecostal Church. * Traveled with his brother Stephen throughout England and Ireland ministering and demonstrating God's healings and miracles in conventions, churches, and camps. * Was used of God just days before his death to pass on his mantle to launch the ministry of a 22-year-old Reinhard Bonnke. I'm so thankful that I discovered the following teaching in Jeffreys' book. It shows God's unequivocal YES to demonstrating His power TODAY. Here's the statement. "The command and promises of Mark 16:15-18 most certainly apply to the whole dispensation of the Holy Ghost. There was no geographical boundary to limit its activities - "Go ye into all the world." There was no distinction to hinder its message - "Preach the Gospel to every creature." There was no cessation of the miraculous signs - "These signs shall follow them that believe." There was no change in the authority behind the commission - "In My Name." ~ George Jeffreys "Healing Rays"  ...
