Sound the Shofar!
James sounds the Shofar across the USA in church congregations and events. The shofar is an ancient musical instrument. It is made from the horn of a ram (called a Ram's Horn Shofar) or from an African Kudu (called a Yemenite Shofar).
James sounds the shofar at his home church Gateway Church at the Messainic Services as well as churches across the country as he shares the story, history, and relevance of the shofar in biblical history and prophecy.
The word Shofar appears more than seventy times in the Holy Bible. When you see the word trumpet, trumpets, or coronet in the Bible it usually means Shofar.
Many people have shared with me that something seems to happen when the Shofar is sounded. In the book of Revelation 1:10 and 4:1 the Bible says that the Voice of God is like the sound of a trumpet (Shofar). The sounding of the Shofar is like God's Voice going forth in to the world.
If you would like James to come to your church/event to sound the shofar and share the history and contemporary relevance please contact him HERE
