For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Day 3 – 40 Days of the Shofar
In Leviticus 23 God instructs Israel to blow the trumpet on the holiday of Rosh Hashanah, which is also called the Feast of Trumpets. Ancient tradition teaches we sound the shofar for a full forty day period beginning the 1st of the Hebrew month of Elul through the festivals of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This season is known as the season of "teshuvah" which means to return.
