The word SHOFAR


The word Shofar in Hebrew shares the same root as the verb "Leshaper" which means to improve, to change, to renew.

The shofar is like an inner voice that leads us to sanctification.

The Great Shofar, according to Isaiah's prophecy, is a mystical sound that will mark the beginning of Redemption.


Isaiah 27:13 And it shall come to pass in that day that upon the sound of the great trumpet yitaka beshofar gadol יִתָּקַע בְּשׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל; and those who perished in the land of Assyria (Ephraim), and the exiles out of the land of Egypt [Judah], shall come and worship before the LORD in the holy mountain in Jerusalem.


This prophecy is quoted in

Matthew 24:31 And he will send his angels with a trumpet grandson kol shofar gadol קוֹל שׁוֹפָר גָּדוֹל; and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other end.


When that time comes, “death will be swallowed up,” all separation and all evil and Satan himself will be gone.


1Cor. 15:51-55 Look, I will tell you a secret — not all of us will die! But we will all be changed! It will take but a moment, the blink of an eye, at the final shofar. For the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised to live forever, and we too will be changed. For this material which can decay must be clothed with imperishability, this which is mortal must be clothed with immortality. When what decays puts on imperishability and what is mortal puts on immortality, then this passage in the Tanakh will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory. “Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?
