The shofar is a musical instrument made from a ram's horn. It's normally sounded at the beginning of each worship service of the Jewish faith. The sound of the shofar from heaven also signals a series of divine judgments upon the earth. The sound of the first shofar of judgment is recorded in the book of Revelation chapter eight and verse seven.

Most Christian English Bibles wrongly translate the word shofar as trumpet. The two are dissimilar instruments and have completely different tonalities. The shofar has a traditional Biblical meaning. The trumpet does not.

In Biblical context as well as Jewish tradition, the sounding of the shofar is a call to worship and repentence. This is important to remember if one wishes to understand what is happening today. It is important to understand what God is saying to the people of earth....perhaps for the last time.

Beginning in 2008 a strange sound was heard in the sky by people of the earth. It was initially described as a hum or explosion by those who were not familiar with the sound of a shofar. The sounds were reported by millions of people from every nation and race and language. Reports seem to indicate that the sounds from the sky originated in the middle east and gradually spread across the world to the west and east and north and south from that point. I live in central Florida and personally heard this sound at 3:30 one morning in 2014. To my knowledge, there are no reports of the sound in the sky being heard after 2015. If I am incorrect, I ask the reader to contact me to add to my knowledge of the event.

At this point, I wish to invite the reader to go to YouTube and search for shofar sounds from the sky. Several comparative recordings of a man sounding a real shofar vs. the recordings of the sounds from the sky are available. These recordings serve to provide definition and understanding as to the origin and meaning of the sounds in the sky - and their parallel on earth of a real shofar. The sky sounds really do sound like the shofar that is heard in synagogues at the beginning of each service.

The shofar on earth and the shofar in the sky are a call to worship and repentance. Our entire planet is in rebellion against God. The sounds in the sky are evidence that if men and women do not repent and seek God that a terrible series of devastating events will take place.

It is NOT God's desire to wreck stuff and kill people. Quite the opposite. He has been inhumanly tolerant of our abuse of one another and our refusal to consider His blessings upon us and His desire for life and peace and safety. We have chosen otherwise and God is about to grant us the desires of our hearts. We want war and so we will get a belly full. We want hate of our fellow man, so our minds and hearts will be filled to bursting. We want to turn our back upon God and reject Him. He will remove those who refuse to live the life He has given.

God gave us life and blessings and He can remove them. It is not His wish to do so, but if we continue to refuse to see things His way, or even to acknowledge that He has a just right to demand it of us - then He will act to remove those good things from our eyes and us from the planet. It isn't fair and it isn't what He really wants, but He will not sit by much longer and put up with sin.

The time for judgment has arrived. The first shofar has sounded. Repent. Not much time left.

and that's me, hollering from the choir loft......

Great thread. I've been following this phenom. for a year or so and find it quite intriguing .
Wow! You actually heard it firsthand! How scary and neat all at the same time.
I've watched several videos on this topic and each time the people in the videos always look to the skies searching for answers. Sometimes the tone seems to sound hauntingly like massive iron doors with great grinding hinges opening ;most other times it's quite evident it's a shofar.
I never knew the sounds original point of origin, thanks for your research.

No, the first trumpet has not sounded. The trumpet judgments of Revelation which take place during the still future seven year Tribulation follow the seal judgments. The Tribulation has not yet begun, and will not take place until the Church-age has completed. The Church will not go through the Tribulation which is God's judgment on Israel and on the unbelieving Gentile nations.

Relax. Just hit the snooze button and the shofar will delay another millennia.

How will we know definitively when the Church-age is over?

When the church has been raptured or caught up (1 Thess. 4:17) you will know the church-age is over.

As for the sky sounds that have been reported, they have natural and/or manmade origins, and many of the reports are probably hoaxes.

That response seems quite ambiguis, but thanks anyway.

Yes, it could certainly be HAARP related, plate tectonics etc.
