About the Shofar - The ceremonial ram’s horn trumpet of ancient Israel.
The Shofar is usually made from the horn of a ram but sometimes from that of a sheep, mountain goat, or antelope.
The Shofar holds a prominent role in the history of Israel. The ram's horn is identified with the ram that became the substitute sacrifice for Isaac in Genesis 22:1-19. The ram typified the future sacrafice that Jesus would be for us as His blood was shed in our place, loosing us from the bondage of sin.
The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah was instituted by God in Leviticus 23:24 as the day of the blowing of the Shofar. This festival is a time of self-examination and repentance, and is still celebrated with the blowing of the Shofar today.
In the Bible the Shofar was used to:
- Gather God's people at Mt. Sinai. (Exo. 9:16-17)
- Proclaim liberty-year of Jubilee. (Lev. 25:9)
- Rally the people for war. (1 Sam. 13:3)
- Declare victory in war. (1 Sam. 13:3)
- Announce the Ark of the Lord. (2 Sam. 6:15)
- Warn of judgement for sin. (Isa. 58:1; Eze. 33:3-4)
- Announce kings. (1 Kings 1:34; 2 Kings 11:12,14)
- Rejoice and give thanks. (Num. 10:10; Neh. 12:35)
- Halt fighting. (2 Sam. 2:28)
- Bring the song of the Lord. (2 Chron. 29:26-27)
- Gather people to worship. (Isa. 7:13)
- Overcome the enemy. (Amos 2:2; Jug. 7:19)
- Herald the Lord's return. (Zach. 9:14-16)
Is the Shofar still effective?
Yes! Our battles today are with principalities and powers of darkness, but they are still battles.
The Shofar is an instrument and God is using it in spiritual ways in the church even as He used it in physical ways with Israel.
There has been a renewal of interest and use of the Shofar. The church is experiencing new things as the Holy Spirit prompts us to sound the Shofar.
