Unlike the blowing of noisemakers during New Year’s Eve parties on the Gregorian calendar, there are prophetic implications associated with sounding the shofar.
For all who revere and believe the Bible the blasts of the shofar on Yom Teruah 5779 are a prophetic reminder that God’s promises will be fulfilled.
May the year 5778 be filled with abundant blessing and peace!
All who espouse a Judeo-Christian worldview must be aware of not just the traditional significance ascribed to the sounding of the shofar on Rosh Hashanah, but the biblical relevance to life in the 21st century.
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, saying: “In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.”
