A Shofar (trumpet) was blown for two important reasons in Israel. One was to announce an assembly of the people and the other, to rally the troops for battle.
Rosh Hashana, beginning September 8th at sundown, is also known as the Feast of the Trumpets. This is because a Shofar is blown on each day of the feast with a special blast on the final day. The final blast is special because it is long and loud, longer than at any other time of the year. The Shofar blast is to remind the people to reflect on the past and strive forward with greater resolve to walk upright in the Lord’s sight in the future.
I am looking forward to the final blast of the Shofar when we, who have been grafted into the family of God, are called home in the twinkling of an eye.
What does God have for you…just around the corner?
