If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!
“Indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted.” (2Tim 3:12)
It is what you actually believe that determines how you walk out your faith, “but avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, quarrels and fights about the Torah; because they are worthless and futile.” (Titus 3:9)

Please Note: Nothing on this website should be taken as anti-Church or anti-Rabbinical. I am not anti-anything or anyone. I am only pro-Torah and pro-Truth. Sometimes the Truth upsets our long-held beliefs. I know it upset mine! Why isn’t my theology consistent throughout this website?

Sounding of the Shofar

As recorded in Numbers 10:

“God told Moshe, ‘Make two trumpets; make them of hammered silver. Use them for summoning the community and for sounding the call to break camp and move on. When they are sounded, the entire community is to assemble before you at the entrance to the tent of meeting. … Also on your days of rejoicing, at your designated times and on Rosh-Hodesh, you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings. These will be your reminder before your God.’”

In obedience to that commandment, I entreat you:
Take heed to the sound of the shofar
The long clarion call of the shofar
Summoning God’s people to do God’s will
To proclaim the good news of salvation
For our Messiah’s return draws near.
Remember the sound of the shofar, oh My people.”

V’tzivanu l’heetateyf ba-tzitzit. And has commanded us to wrap ourselves in tzitziot.
