The shofar (ram’s horn) is often used as an instrument of spiritual warfare… For example, the Torah states, “When you go to war in your land against an adversary who is oppressing you, you are to sound an alarm with trumpets; then you will be remembered before the LORD your God and you will be saved from your enemies”

The Shofar in Scripture

In the Scriptures, the word shofar(שׁוֹפָר) first occurs in Exodus 19:16 when the Torah was first given to Israel during  (i.e., “Pentecost”): “On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud shofar blast  (קל שׁפָר חָזָק מְאד ), so that all the people in the camp trembled…. And as the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him in thunder.” This shofar blast is sometimes called the “first trump” of God.

“I will not offer to the Lord my God sacrifices that have cost me nothing.”

— 2 Samuel 24:24
