School of the Prophetic Harp on Mount Carmel

The School of the Prophetic Harp had a wonderful opportunity to minister at the top of Mount Carmel at Kehilat HaCarmel. This is the location where Elijah confronted the prophets of Baal and is currently the location of the beautiful facility where the Messianic congregation led by David and Karen Davis meet - here is their web site....

Here is a YouTube clip of the harpists playing there.

Please pray for the students as they meet with the Harp Society of Israel at a special party the night of November 22.

Shalom from Jerusalem!

Harpists Surround the Old City of Jerusalem with the Sound of the Harp

The students of the School of the Prophetic Harp enacted a prophetic action by assigning a team of harpists to each gate of the Old City of Jerusalem. On November 18, after prayer walking the ramparts, synchronized at 11 min. after 11 the harpists began to intercede over the city with the beautiful sound of the harp. The following scripture was sung as a prayer...

Hag 2:6-9

6 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. 8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. 9 ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.”

After a time of prayer and proclamation all the harpists regrouped in front of the Golden Gate to declare the soon coming of the King of Jerusalem. Click on this link to view a YouTube clip showing a part of our time at this Gate of promise for the whole world.... (after the conclusion of the school a link of photos and the impressions of each of the students for this exciting moment will be posted here)

Please pray for our time of ministry at David and Karen Davis’ Congregation on Mount Carmel just after their Shabbat service on Nov 20th as well as the meeting of the students of the School of the Prophetic harp with the harpists of Israel at a party held for us by the Nevel Harp Society the following Monday evening.

Prayer Watch at King of Kings

The students of the School of the Prophetic Harp played their harps at a prayer watch at King of Kings. In the crowded prayer tower, many came to hear the heavenly sound and a number were touched with the prophetic and God's miraculous power! Here is a YouTube clip of our rendition of Psalm 27...

The morning of November 18 we will be setting a team of harpists at each of the gates of the Old City of Jerusalem. In this symbolic prophetic act we will surround the city with the sound of the harp and ask God to shatter the spiritual glass-like sphere of oppression and allow the heavens to be opened and God's Kingdom to break through! Please join us in this strategic act of intercession at 11 min. after 11am Israeli time.

Students of the School of the Prophetic Harp - At the City of David

The students of the School of the Prophetic Harp spent the day at the City of David to let the sound of the harp be heard once again in the ancient place of David's palace. It is also in this place where the Pool of Siloam is located. This place is significant as this is where Nehemiah sent out his choir of singers and harpists when the walls of Jerusalem were rededicated on their way to the temple to meet up with another group of musicians coming from the opposite direction. Nehemiah and Ezra record the reinstatement of the singers and harpists into the service of the Lord - this is a template for what we hope to prophetically rebirth, the use of the harp in the service of the King of Jerusalem!

Here is a YouTube link for a video collage of our day in the City of David:

"Harp Attack" in Jerusalem - Harpists on the front cover of the Jerusalem Post

The students of the School of the Prophetic Harp played for an enthusiastic crowd on the streets of Jerusalem on Ben Yehuda Street. Over 1000 shekels were raised for an Israeli harpist who is a street musician and had been in a accident leaving her unable to support herself. Amazingly, the students were featured on the front cover the Jerusalem Post! Please continue to pray as many opportunities for the students to play are opening up. Here is a YouTube video clip of the event!

Students of the School of the Prophetic Harp - Prayer Watch over Jerusalem

Today during a prayer watch the students of the School of the Prophetic raised the sound of the harp in intercession over the city of Jerusalem from the Jerusalem House of Prayer For All Nations. The beauty and power of the harps released in prayer is a wonderful thing to watch in operation. In this YouTube video clip you can hear how lovely it is for personal ministry to take place with the harps...

Samuel's Mountain Expedition

The School of the Prophetic Harp had an amazing time on Samuel's Mountain, the location of the School of the Prophets mentioned in I Samuel 19. A time of impartation was experienced in a powerful way. During our stay the cry of the muezzin was heard as shown on the YouTube video clip but a new sound was heard - the sound of prophetic harpists not heard for thousands of years. Then a very strange thing happened. We were invited to come into the mosque to play the harp. The mosque is shared by both Jew and Muslim as it is the location of Samuel's Tomb. We were further surprised when a man with an oud (a middle eastern lute) came out and wanted to play in the echoing space along with the harp. You'll have to see it to believe it...

Please remember to pray for our street concert on  Ben Yehuda Street this Thursday Nov 11 at 7:00pm Israeli time.

Harpists at the Western Wall Near the Menora

The School of the Prophetic Harp's first foray into Jerusalem was a blessed event with many onlookers asking question about the school and bringing the sound of peace to the city. It is exciting to consider that such a gathering of harpists who are worshipers has probably not been in the city of Jerusalem since temple days! We feel lifted by your prayers!

Harpist in the Garden of Gethsemane

The School of the Prophetic Harp interceded overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem in the Garden of Gethsemane. When we first arrived in the Dominus Flevit compound, the atmosphere was chaotic. Dogs were barking, the muezzin was ranting anti-Israel tirades over the mosque loud-speaker, there were tourists groups being addressed by their leader and the occasional hymn being sung. The over-all feeling in the air was that of a cacophonic sound-scape. Then, the harpist began to play. Slowly a definite change began to take place. Strangely, the muezzin began to sing in the same key as we were playing. The dogs stopped barking and birds sang joyfully in response to the harps. Finally, the singing of the people also merged into our key. You had to be there to believe it!

Tonight, around 8:15 Jerusalem time, we will be playing our harps just above the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. Our objective is to change the spiritual atmosphere over the city with a new sound from heaven. Please pray for this time of intercession. You can download a copy of our schedule and pray into the various spiritual warfare operations that the harpists will be undertaking by going to this link to our website: 

Shalom from Jerusalem

Video of Ani Ma'amin sung at the Psalms Museum in Jerusalem

Hapists Meet With Israeli Harp Society - Instructor Meets With Media Crew

Just before the start of the School of the Prophetic Harp we were down on Ben Yehuda Street meeting with the Nevel Harp Society to introduce some of the harpists from our school to this group of harpists from Israel. We have been invited to a party where our students will meet with their members - pray this will be a blessed time!  On November 11 at 7pm the school will be doing a benefit street concert for the bottom left harpist who is known as the Harp Lady of Jerusalem - she recently broke both her legs, preventing her from her making a living from playing the harp at her usual spot on Ben Yehuda Street. Please pray that this concert will have a wonderful impact on the city of Jerusalem and the life of this dear harpist!

While having lunch, the pictured video crew (the same producer of the TV series Grizzley Adams) came by, staffed by our friends from Israel Vistas (the Rawlings). Consequently, I was asked to be interviewed regarding my stand for Israel and the political situation - I was delighted to voice a strong perspective from a believers perspective which will be viewed all over the world. An orthodox Jewish man, who had been listening to the interview declared "this man is the best representative for Israel!" and the producer was thankful for a clear Bible-centered interview. Amazing things are already happening - please pray for God's continued intervention.
