The Lord designates this as a “due season” of judgment and reward. The daily blowing of the shofar represents God’s alarm clock to wake us up from any spiritual sleep or slumber. In His great love and mercy He sounds an alarm so we are not caught unaware and miss the abundant blessing about to happen. One of the traditional sounds is 9 quick blasts in short succession (Teruah) -- which resembles an alarm.
verse of the day
All ye inhabitants of the world and neighbors of the land, when He lifts up a banner as an example on the mountains, ye shall see it; and when He blows the shofar, ye shall hear it. Isaiah 18:3
