The shofar (ram's
horn trumpet), spoken of throughout the Holy Scriptures, is sounded
every day this month in traditional synagogues since August 2021
coincides with the month of Elul on the Hebrew /Biblical calendar. Elul precedes the month of Tishrei and is a month of preparation of the heart before the fall Feasts of the Lord. The shofar calls God's people to repentance.
The shofar is also a call to war. "When you go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets (shofarot, show-far-OAT), and you will be remembered before the LORD your God, and you will be saved from your enemies" (Num. 10:9).
month, in obedience to the Lord, I wrote about two of the evil spirits
that are warring against us in the U.S.A. at this hour in history: the
lying, deceiving spirit and the antichrist spirit. The spiritual
warfare, mentioned in Ephesians 6:12, is the scriptural basis of this
war against demonic forces. My compulsion to continue expounding on our
call to war is also based on another verse from Ephesians: "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them" (Eph. 5:11).
THEM. Plural. It was drawn to my attention recently that the world-wide
pandemic was just beginning at the time of my husband Neil's unveiling
(of a monument one year after his death). This was in March, 2020. No
one wore masks yet, everyone was unsure about Covid-19, and the
"pandemonium" had not yet begun (PAN-DEMONium, from the Greek for "all
demon"). I consider
it a possibility that the enemy unleashed or at least stirred up a
horde of demonic spirits during the pandemic of 2020, and they are
harassing us now. The Lord wants to unveil them and give us victory over
them, but we must be AWARE of them and ENGAGE in the battle against
them. The End-time bride is destined to be a Warrior bride. Please be
assured that we are not alone in the battle. God is ,)שופרwith us. Take heart from Nehemiah 4:20, "Whenever you hear the sound of the trumpet (shofar rally to us there. Our God will fight for us."

has given us a mandate to teach the younger women -- and there's always
someone younger than you, right? I am always encouraged by Nancy's
writing. I hope you will take God's mandate to heart and share God's
Word with the women around you.
I just wanted to send out one more "gentle" reminder...
