Do you own a shofar and use it to usher in the presence of the Lord?
In the Bible, whenever you see the word trumpet mentioned to call the people to assembly, or in a warning or a call to war, it is the Hebrew word Shofar. There are a couple of instances where a silver trumpet is mentioned, but they were metal instruments that were used in the service of God’s Temple. The following is a result of a search for the definition of Shofar on the Internet:
The Shofar is a trumpet made of an animal’s horn, preferably a Ram’s horn.
The Shofar is traditionally played during the month of Elul, which is the last month in the Hebrew calendar, and during the first ten days of the Hebrew year (the days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur). A person should hear 100 blasts from the shofar on each day of Rosh HaShana.
There are three sounds made with the shofar:
- Tekiah – One long blast
- Shevarim – Three shorter blasts
- Teruah – A series of quick blasts
The significance of the Shofar
The sound of the shofar stirs our hearts to repentance.
We blow the shofar to show that we accept God as our king, as it says in Psalms 98:6, “With trumpets and the sound of the shofar make a call out before the King, God”.
Want to join a team of shofar blowers to kick off Heaven Fest 2012 this year?

Shofar blowers will be positioned on each of the 7 stages inside the festival. Shofar blowers, with their families surrounding them, will also stand around the outside of the fence of the festival grounds, simultaneously blowing at 11 am to signal Heaven Fest – welcoming the King of Kings!
