Shofar Blowing with the Teachable Spirit

Why is the sound of the shofar important? What does the sound of the shofar mean? Whose voice is typically connected with the sound of the shofar? How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O LORD, they walk in the light of Your countenance. In Your name they rejoice all the day, And by Your righteousness they are exalted. –Ps. 89:15-16 The word translated here in verse 15 as “sound” is the Hebrew transliteration “teruah” used to describe the sound of the shofar.

Understanding the Experiences of Life: Why Douglas Monene

If you were able to accomplish all that you did while struggling with the mountain, what can you do now that it is cast into the sea? Yeshua (Jesus) said, “If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done unto you.” –John 15:7 Repeating these words over and over to myself at night as I fell asleep, I would ask God, “How is this possible?” Understanding the verse to mean I could have whatever I wanted, I sought to grasp the “if” clause that empowered its truth. If you abide in me If my words abide in you THEN… You shall ask what you will It shall be done unto you Abiding in Him seemed a simple idea; I felt I had accomplished this during my trial with the mountain in my life.
