Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light to my path.Psalm 119:105
What in the World is Happening in the Church?
While we can recognize "a world upside down" when we see the craziness and evil of a world in deception, how about the Church? Some of the Church is in deception and delusion as much as the non-believing world.
The following are just some examples that I have come across in the last year. They are just the tip of the iceberg of outrageous things that are going on in God's Body

What in the World is Happening in the Middle East
With the exception of Israel, there are almost no constants in the present day Middle East. I am going to try and give an overview of what is happening, realizing that it could change radically in the next five minutes. Certainly the Iranian nuclear project has worldwide implications and the Syrian situation has the potential to blow up into a regional war or even something worse.
The military takeover has at least temporarily stabilized

And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.Exodus 13:21-22
Amud Annan - Pillar of Cloud
Operation "Pillar of Cloud," Israel's latest battle with Hamas in Gaza, is now over. As the sirens have stopped screaming and the dust has settled it would be good to try and see what we have

For Israel's Sake: The USA Elections
On November 6, 2012 Americans will elect the man who will be President of the United States for the next 4 years. A majority of the readers of "Sound of the Shofar" are not American citizens and may believe that this election is irrelevant to them. I would submit to you that this is a greatly mistaken understanding and will try to explain as I go along.
Even if you were right in its irrelevancy to you and your nation, all of you who read this prayer

The LORD shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies.Is 42:13
Proclaim this among the nations: "Joel 3:9
Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near, Let them come up.

The burden against Egypt. Behold, the LORD rides on a swift cloud, And will come into Egypt; The idols of Egypt will totter at His presence, And the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst.
I will set Egyptians against Egyptians; Everyone will fight against his brother, And everyone against his neighbor, City against city, kingdom against kingdom. The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst; I will destroy their counsel, And they will consult the idols and the charmers, The mediums and the

Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, She gave birth to her children. Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?says the LORD.
Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?says your God.
Rejoice with Jerusalem, And be glad with her, all you who love her; Rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her; That you may feed and be satisfied

Then I will harden Pharaoh's heart, so that he will pursue them; and I will gain honor over Pharaoh and over all his army, that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD.And they did so.
As I was preparing for the Passover Seder yesterday I had a thought that I want to share with you. Something for us all to take to the Lord, for Him to say "Yes or No". It is clear in the Scriptures that God Himself hardened Pharaoh's heart so that he would not let the Children of Israel

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.Zech 12:2-3

Then he said to me, "Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.Dan 10:12-13

During May, I was in Geneva on a prayer assignment because of the UN Human Rights Conference known as Durban II that was taking place there. This conference was a follow up of a previous conference, "Durban I" held in South Africa in 2001. Durban I became an Israel bashing conference and Durban II was more of the same.

(Tactical Prayer for the Salvation of Israel)
What does it mean to "pray for God's will to be done on earth as it is written in heaven?" There are many Christians who pray for Israel who are only concerned with praying for the salvation of the Jewish People (Israel). When others pray for different things concerning Israel, those prayers are often criticized as being soulish or carnal. However in my mind, praying only for the salvation of

This is an emergency prayer alert and will remain in effect until the Israeli elections (10 February) are over. In SOS #81 we warned to Watch and Pray now as a situation develops we need to pray proactively. Let us pray that the Lord deals with these dangers before they develop a life of their own. We must pray both strategically and tactically.
Developments in the new Obama administration in the USA may have a profound and very dangerous impact on Israel and the upcoming

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.2 Thessalonians 2:9-11
For some time now I have been pondering the question of how two people or two groups of people can look at the same "facts" and come up
