You will see the cult building
in both the Jewish mind and the demonic Brownsville and MSOG mind for a voice
in the mind. This also harks back to the Maitreya cult. There is a
longing to hear voices, and Satan will soon oblige.
I received this article from Alabama Discernment Ministries a few weeks ago,
but decided to postpone sending it until I had a clearer understanding of
the Shofar as it is being used in the Latter Rain Revival. Yesterday's post from
Glen Hermann provided confirmation that this instrument is indeed being used as
a mediumistic device to invoke a counterfeit spirit. I am sending this article
in two parts, the first being a message by a New Age / Jewish Rabbi who is preparing
Israel for the "revelation of the Light of God throughout the world" at the moment
the Shofar is sounded. Part II is Ed Tarkowski's commentary which correlates the
New Age use of the Shofar with the Shofar of the Latter Rain/A.D. 2000 Celebrations.

Laura has come through with
a very important quote and it needs to be developed to see exactly what the events
of 2000 really are. Please read the following carefully, looking for the seeming
connections in all that is spoken of. This is more an investigative paper to bring
about discussion than a strong condemnation of anything. It needs input and maybe
you, as Laura had, have something that can contribute to these statements.
Hi Ed, Just a quick thought on the shofar. Reading this site
reminded me of your page on One Minute of Instant Global Cooperation and lord
Maitreya. This is from a New Age/Jewish perspective. I found the idea presented
in the last paragraph interesting as it seems very similar to what was stated
in your article. Are we being conditioned by the shofar's use in the "revival"
to prepare for a day when a fake trumpet will sound?
BY RAV SHLOMO AVINER
The Shofar signals both the birth and the future
of the Nation of Israel. In the words of the prophet Isaiah, "You revealed Yourself
to Your holy people in the cloud of Your glory in order to speak to them, You
revealed yourself to them in thunder and lightning, and You appeared to them through
the sound of the Shofar." (as quoted in Shmona Esrei Musaf of Rosh Hashana). Isaiah
also tells us that in the final redemption, "It shall be that on that day a great
Shofar will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Ashur will come,
and those who were cast aside in the land of Mitzraim, and they shall bow down
before God on the Holy Mount, in Jerusalem."
The Creator reveals
Himself through the Shofar, first in the revelation of the Divine Will at the
giving of the Torah on Sinai, in the Shofar of "You revealed Yourself." The aim
of this revelation is its culmination - the revelation of the Light of God throughout
the world, "And they shall bow down before God on the Holy Mount, in Jerusalem.
. . . . Then a great Shofar will be blown" (ibid.)
There are two
types of Jews: those "lost" and those "cast aside," as the Chassidim explain.
Some are in Ashur and some in Mitzraim. The land of Ashur is the land of the blessed
and the blissful. (The Hebrew root A Sh R denotes bliss.). . . . Some people get
lost in all this bliss, as the Torah teaches, "And Yeshurun waxed fat, and he
kicked" (Deut. 32:15). Too much good may lead men to lose the sparks of divinity
in their souls; they drown in the flood of material pleasures and foreign influences
to which they are constantly exposed.
Other people are cast aside
in Egypt (Mitzrayim - from the root TZAR - sorrow), where their poverty and suffering
causes them to abandon God. "And they did not listen to Moshe on account of their
distress and the hard work" (Ex. 21:9). Their trials and tribulations marred the
splendor of their spirits. It is up to the Great Shofar of the Redemption to awaken
all those who have fallen into the clutches of Ashur or been swallowed up by Mitzraim
, as the Rambam teaches, "Although the Shofar blowing on Rosh HaShana is a mitzva
for which no reason is stated, it hints to us: 'Wake up from your sleep, you who
slumber. . . .'"
This is also the missive of Rabbi Elchanan, the
sainted author of the "Netana Tokef" prayer of Musaf: "A great Shofar blast shall
sound, and a small still voice will be heard." If a great Shofar is blown, how
can the sound be of a small still voice? And why? The answer is that on that awesome
day, man hears an inner voice, the voice of his soul, the Divine speaking from
within him. The Shofar blast is the catalyst which frees his soul from its bonds
and allows man to listen to it, "And a small still voice will be heard."

COMMENTARY ON SHOFAR TRUMPET
BY ED TARKOWSKI
My comments on all of this:
This is sooooo crucial.
Here is why. Jerry Seville has an hour long program on TBN. About a month ago,
He preached on Jubilee, and here are some of the things made up the content of
his sermon to probably 3000 or so people in his congregation:
God is going to take the goods of the rich and give them to His people
2. In the great Jubilee of 2000, they will al be set free and will come into
their full inheritance
3. This will HAPPEN AT THE SOUNDING OF THE
TRUMPET IN 2000.
4. He spent 15 minutes discussing how we have
take care of the trumpet player because without him the trump won't sound.
5. Seville is a Word of Faith preacher.
6. The Shofar
is used in the revival, and the blowing of trumpets has been seen on other programs
Now let's look at Maitreya's quotes from my Home page:
[Begin Maitreya quotes]
The Day of Declaration is the
day when Maitreya "will leave no doubt that He is the World Teacher. Maitreya
will mentally 'overshadow' all of humanity simultaneously. Each of us, not only
those watching or listening, will hear His words inwardly, telepathically, in
our own language. . . . Thus, all will know that the World Teacher is now among
us. Maitreya's open world-wide mission will have begun" (Mission, Vol. 1, p. 11).
Creme writes that on the Day of Declaration, Maitreya will be seen
on television by all of humanity through a global satellite hookup. It is then
that he will communicate telepathically with the entire world by "overshadowing
the minds of all peoples" who "will hear His words inwardly in their own language."
The Christ will communicate "as an outflow of the Christ Principle (the energy
which He embodies) through the hearts of all humanity, invoking their intuitive
and heartfelt response" (Mission, Vol. 1, p. 24). Stating that there will also
be many healings throughout the world, Creme indicates that this Day of Declaration
will be the equivalent of Pentecost: "This [Day of Declaration] will be a repetition,
only now on a world scale, of the true happenings of Pentecost, 2,000 years ago.
. . . In celebration of this event, Pentecost will become one of the major festivals
of the New World Religion which, eventually, Maitreya will inaugurate" (Ibid.).
Hubbard's Christ also promised such an experience for all humanity:"You
have come home to me. The bread and wine hold within them the substance of my
new body. The key for you now each day is to breathe deeply in a 'birthing experience'
of the resurrected body. Then do the communion and experience my body transforming
yours. Do this in preparation for the Planetary Birth which will be induced through
this experience given to the new disciples of Christ who chose to work together
for the Planetary Pentecost, when the Spirit of God is poured out upon all people.
This is the purpose of your mission on Earth. All your projects will be reoriented,
aligned and empowered as you accept this purpose and put it first. . . . finally"(The
Revelation, p. 311).
Creme says that Maitreya will overshadow humanity
in such a way that all humans will temporarily be open to his message, which would
invoke an "intuitive and heartfelt response." What makes this especially interesting
is that Barbara Marx Hubbard speaks of her Christ in this same way:"The Instant
of Co-operation begins, empathy floods the feelings of the whole body of Earth,
separateness is overcome, and I appear to all of you at once. I appear to you
from within as a voice, and as a vision of yourself as an evolving being. I appear
to you from beyond as the light being that I now am. . . . "At the moment of cosmic
contact, I will appear to you both through inner experience and through external
communication on your mass media - the nervous system of the world. "You will
all feel, hear and see my presence at one instant in time, each in your own way."
(The Revelation, pp.236-237)
[End Maitreya quotes]
POINT 1: Maitreya speaks to people "from within as a voice."
2: Maitreya said: "The key for you now each day is to breathe deeply in a 'birthing
experience' of the resurrected body." Already, Hinn, Perky, Parsley, Cheronn,
etc. have people breathing in "the anointing," which is "breathing in" the new
From the Shofar article above:
much good may lead men to lose the sparks of divinity in their souls;" The
"spark of divinity" is not in anyone who has not believed on the Lord Jesus Christ.
The "spark of divinity within each person is the "god" in every man. This spark
is mentioned by Jay Gary in his call to for a Jubilee celebration is the years
2000: "So it is with the coming Bimillennial Era. If it is to have any hope of
more than a passing success, it must give birth to the "Spirit of 2000."
"On the eve of this decade, I believe Providence has given us a visual
illustration of what this spirit is about through the revolutions in Eastern Europe.
There we saw the triumph of the human spirit in the face of tremendous odds. "We
must recover the simple idea that the spark of eternity has been placed within
each human being. We must fan this flame, this tiny spark within every person-and
insure that no government, no group, or no authority is allowed to smother or
snuff out this sacred flame.
"Where can you share the "Spirit of
2000"? Each of us have circles of influence and networks we can touch-our local
parish, a rotary club, or a professional network.
"As early citizens
of the 21st Century, we have a sacred duty to carry this torch across the length
and breadth of the planet. Let's blow the jubilee trumpet and herald this coming
renaissance among government, education, arts, media, business, and religion.

is New Age thought, as shown by this research paper, NEW AGE AND THE NEW THOUGHT
MOVEMENT Excerpts from Chapter 5, "New Thought and New Age," of C. Alan Anderson
and Deborah G. Whitehouse, New Thought: A Practical American Spirituality "New
Age, like New Thought, is strongly optimistic, largely because most people in
both groups believe in a good God, and that all people are part of God or have
at least a spark of the divine. New Agers are full of hope for the transformation
of society and the planet. New Thought accepts, as does New Age, the old Hermetic
teaching, "As above, so below," which appears in an early version of the Lord's
Prayer as "As in heaven, so on earth" (Luke 11:2).
Heaven, in a
New Thought interpretation, alludes to one's state of mind, and earth is the manifestation
of that state. As in mind, so in manifestation. Symbolically interpreted,
Heaven is the uplifted state of consciousness, the wonderful, peaceful sense of
universal oneness that the mystic seeks. Charles Fillmore defines it as "a state
of consciousness in which the soul and the body are in harmony with Divine Mind."
All of Jesus' metaphors about heaven are attempts to explain the necessity for
disciplining our thoughts, weeding out the negative ones and treasuring the positive
ones; e.g., the pearl of great price, tares growing with the wheat, seeds falling
in various places with various results. New Age shares New Thought's interest
in metaphor, and the late Joseph Campbell, the preeminent authority on myth and
metaphor, is a popular New Age author."
Now, we have it stated
that, "It is up to the Great Shofar of the Redemption to awaken all....", meaning,
in part, the spark of divinity in each (read the entire quote above on the Shofar).
This article speaks of hearing a small a still small voice when the Shofar sounds
in Judaism, but the revival is using the Shofar in its services, as is evidenced
by the tapes from Whistler's
Mountain in Vancouver, where there
one main speaker was Reuven Doran (spelling?) of the Messianic Movement, whose
main message is that Jews and Gentiles must become one now BFORE THE RETURN OF
As I inquired in one email,
On this web sight are pictures of "trumpets," with one looking like
a Shofar or rams horn that are connected to ectoplasm. That was rather disturbing
considering the "trumpet" or "Shofar" is being used from a Jewish perspective
in the "revival" meetings. I am NOT SAYING the trumpets connected to ectoplasm
are shofars, for one is a manifestation and one is an actual horn, but this statement
"Ectoplasm" was captured by an investigator early
in this century: it burned to an ash, leaving a smell as of horn. (Pearsall, p.101)
If anyone has any input on this and the "horn" blown at revival meetings
used in a revival context, please let me know. I am trying to be careful here
because the Shofar is biblical.
of these "trumpets" IS TO AMPLIFY THE WHISPERING VOICE OF THE SPIRIT BEING CHANNELED:
Although Leslie Flint did not use them anymore, in former days "trumpets" were
being used. These floated around unsupported in the seance-room and approached
a person for whom a message was intended. The trumpet amplified the faint voice
and was said to facilitate the phenomenon. See photographs of such floating trumpets
or ectoplasmic voiceboxes by clicking on the following icons:(medium: Jack Webber,
see photo trumpet seance).
There is also WAM, who will have one minute of music that will
bring about a global consciousness. Will the Shofar or trumpets be involved? We
will have to wait and see. Here is a quote from my article on WAMN on our home
If you log on to the Internet
Home Page of The Millennium Institute (MI), you will find a selection called "The
Millennium" which links to "Millennium Resources and Information" (see link change
below). There you will find Project WAM 2000 (World Action for the Millennium
- Communications for Human Development Association), and these shocking words
will greet you:
"IMAGINE... "On January 1st of the year 2000
all inhabitants of the planet Earth accessible through all communication means
will be linked to receive and share for one minute a message, that expressed in
musical language, can be universally understood as a way to empower the individual
and express its belonging to the local community.
Now... HELP US
MAKE IT HAPPEN!"
Why do I say these words are shocking? For a number
of reasons. The first has to do with their uncanny similarity to the words delivered
by the New Age Christ, Lord Maitreya, and by "The Christ" of Barbara Marx Hubbard.
MAITREYA WILL OVERSHADOW ALL OF HUMANITY Benjamin Creme, Lord Maitreya's
channeler, has said that on the Day of Declaration, Maitreya "will leave no doubt
that He is the World Teacher. Maitreya will mentally 'overshadow' all of humanity
simultaneously. Each of us, not only those watching or listening, will hear His
words inwardly, telepathically, in our own language. . . . Thus, all will know
that the World Teacher is now among us. Maitreya's open world-wide mission will
have begun" (Mission, Vol. 1, p. 11). . . .
On WAM's Internet
page, a section entitled "Guiding Principles, Maximum Participation" for the One
Minute stresses that,"The event must be designed and promoted in a manner which
allows each individual to become an active participant instead of a spectator
of something foreign and distant."
Questions presented later in
WAM's paper fit well into the words and agendas of Hubbard's "Christ" and Creme's
Maitreya:"Does it exist a musical expression capable of promoting universal communication?
We don't know, but there are people who research and advance in this area, from
those who look for the 'internal music' to those who combine different musical
expressions. [Is it] possible to imagine a message identifiable by each and every
human being? This challenge can only be met through a broad participation process
inclusive of representatives of the cultural, social, political and economic diversity
of humanity. Currently not all human beings are accessible through communication
systems. That is why is necessary an effort to correct such imbalance" (placed
in paragraph form by ET).
[End WAM quote]
also disturbing is the thought of the Shofar being blown in 2000 and the small
voice being hear in one's "spark of divinity" because this the purpose in the
"trumpet" in the psychic/occult world: to amplify the voice of the spirit. Does
God reveal Himself as the article above says:"The Creator reveals Himself through
the Shofar. . . . This is also the missive of Rabbi Elchanan, the sainted author
of the "Netana Tokef" prayer of Musaf: "A great Shofar blast shall sound, and
a small still voice will be heard." If a great Shofar is blown, how can the sound
be of a small still voice? And why? The answer is that on that awesome day, man

is no such thing mentioned in Scripture. God is revealed in the Person of Jesus
Christ. There is a scriptural use of the shofar, but these terms tend New Age
philosophy rather than true Jewish or Christian.
The quotes from
these articles on these various themes is quite disturbing after looking at all
of this. What we have is ectoplasm being manifested in the revival and at other
times, shofar blowing, a still small voice to awaken the spark of divinity in
humanity, Maitreya to speak to all of humanity in a quiet voice within everyone,
a mixture of New Age-Jewish-Revival language and terms and philosophical thoughts
and various parts of New Age philosophy. It is confusing at the moment, but after
exposing this stuff for ten years and watching pieces I initially see come together
into a united whole of purpose, I am very disturbed by all of this. You ought
to be, too.
I apologize if this is poorly done. It is a flood of
info that appears to be heading for one goal: the hearing a small voice through
the blowing of the Shofar on a global basis to bring about a global community
sharing that same consciousness.
