Why do we sound the shofar ? The shofar is sounded to announce the coronation of the King . For this reason , Psalm 47:2 and verses 3 and 6 reads ,
“ Clap your hands , all you peoples ! Shout to God with the voice of joy ! … For Adonai Elyon is awesome , a great King over all the earth … God is gone up amidst shouting , Adonai amidst the sound of the shofar .”
Ten days later is Yom Kippur , the Day of Atonement . It is also known by another name , Yom HaDin , or the Day of Judgment . This is promised in Psalm 96 . Thus , in Psalm 96:12b the Psalmist declares , “ Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy before Adonai , for He is coming ! For He is coming to judge the earth . He will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples in His faithfulness .” But as followers of Yeshua , we have passed out of judgment . So , we observe the holiday by interceding for our people who need to know the Jewish Messiah !
Four days after Yom Kippur , we begin an 8-day celebration of Sukkot ( except the 8th day is not actually Sukkot , but an added day called Shemini Atzeret , meaning eighth day celebration ). The Prophet Zechariah saw that day clearly when he wrote at the end of his prophetic book declaring ,
Adonai will then be King over all the earth . In that day Adonai will be Echad and His Name Echad . ( 14:9 )
What events are there ( in God ’ s plan for the world ) which have not yet taken place ? Let ’ s start by reviewing what has already happened .
But when the fullness of time came , God sent out His Son , born of a woman and born under law — to free those under law , so we might receive adoption as sons . ( Galatians 4:4-5 )
