THE SHOFAR CALLS US TO ACTION!
The time has come to sound the Shofars daily, to call for a Holy assembly and a time to repent and be pro-
active not just pray. The return of our King is upon us. Prepare yourselves. Boots on the ground and prayer in the air!
Understanding the Shofar:
HOW, WHAT, WHY, WHO, WHERE. and WHEN to Blow the Trumpet (Horn or Shofar)
The word Sho'far is Hebrew and in our modern bibles it is mostly called a trumpet.
The Ram’s Horn Shofar is one of the earliest musical instruments known to man. It is used to usher in the biblical festivals of Israel, including the Sabbath, and to inspire people to mend their lives and repent. It was developed by the early Hebrews and is made from the horn of an animal like a ram, a goat, sheep, or in modern times mostly a Kudu ,(Yeminite) from the antelope family.
The Kudu was first used by a tribe of Jews called Yemenites so that is it nickname. The Silver Trumpet or Temple Trumpet is one first used in Numbers 10:10 to call the congregation together and to direct the movement in the camps.
Yett another shofar is called a Gemsbok from a Gazelle. Also the Sable-Antelope, Ibex and the Eland shofar.
