is a team of disciples using the shofar to evangelize the area with the Word and voice of God. (We reach out with the Word to the unsaved and the saved alike).

God has been using the Shofar (and those who sound it) to call His people, instruct His people, and relate to His people throughout the history of creation.
“then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head. Since they heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head. If they had heeded the warning, they would have saved themselves. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood.” Ezek 33:4-6
“I will set watchmen over you, saying, ‘listen to the sound of the trumpet!” But they said, we will not listen’ ” – Jer 6:17
“Blessed are You, oh Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us by Your commandments and instructed us to hear the call of the shofar.”
I have found (s0 far) nine distinct uses for the call of the shofar in the bible.
1. call to assemble (Num 10:2-3)
2. give direction (Num 10:6)
3. call to battle (Num 10:9, Josh 6:5)
4. call to worship (Num 10:10, Ps 98:4-6)
5. blown in His presence (2 Sam 6:15, 1 Chron 16:4,6)
6. coronation of kings (1 King 1:39)
7. call to consecration (Joel 1:14, 2:15-16)
8. announce God’s judgement (Joel 2:1, Rev 8:10)
9. herald the coming of the Lord
(Rev 11:15, 1 Thess 4:16-18, 1 Cor 15:52)
As shofar blowers, ask yourselves “which of these does He command of me right now to blow?”
