PEOPLE.

PROPHETICALLY UNITING JEWS AND

CHRISTIANS ACROSS THE WORLD

TODAY ON THE CROSSOVER

>>WELCOME. TODAY WE HAVE A REALLY FASCINATING SHOW. FOR ALL YOU WHO SEE THE BEGINNING OF OUR SHOW EACH WEEK, YOU HEAR THE SHOFAR BEING BLOWN. YOU ALSO SEE THE BANNERS BEING RAISED UP, AND TODAY WE'RE HONORED TO HAVE WITH US RANDY AND DONNA SPENCER WHO ARE THE ONES YOU SEE ON THE SHOW EACH AND EVERY WEEK. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A SHOFAR IS, JUST HEARING THAT SOUND ON THE TV IS JUST PENETRATING. IT WILL MAKE YOU STOP IN FRONT OF THAT TV, LOOK AT THAT TV AND REALLY LISTEN. IT'S A SOUND THAT I WOULD SAY YOU HAVE TO REVERE WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IT'S ABOUT. TO BEGIN OUR SHOW TODAY, RANDY AND DONNA, YOU HAVE A REALLY GOOD SCRIPTURE TO SHARE WITH US ABOUT THE SHOFAR.

>>SURE. IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH 18:3 IT SAYS "ALL YOU INHABITANTS OF THE WORLD, YOU WHO LIVE ON EARTH, WHEN A BANNER IS HOISTED ON THE MOUNTAIN, LOOK AND WHEN A SHOFAR IS BLOWN, LISTEN."

>>AND TODAY WE'RE GOING TO GET TO ACTUALLY LISTEN TO THE SHOFAR A LITTLE BIT LATER ON IN THE SHOW. RANDY, WELCOME.

>>THANKS.

>>WOULD YOU SHARE WITH US RIGHT FROM THE START, WHAT IS A SHOFAR?

>>WELL ACTUALLY THE WORD SHOFAR COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD FOR RAM'S HORN OR TRUMPET. THE MANY REFERENCES TO THE SHOFAR ARE TO TRUMPETS IN THE BIBLE. I WOULD SAY THAT ABOUT 80% OF THE TRUMPET REFERENCES IN THE BIBLE ARE THE SHOFAR.

>>OK. I KNOW YOU HAVE SOME SITTING HERE. CAN YOU SHOW US WHAT THIS TRUMPET, RAM'S HORN LOOKS LIKE.

>>WELL, THIS RIGHT HERE IS A RAM'S HORN SHOFAR AND THE RAM'S HORN HAS ITS ROOTS BACK TO ABRAHAM AND ISAAC WHEN G-D PROVIDED THAT SACRIFICIAL RAM FOR ISAAC. THAT IS WHAT THE RAM’S HORN IS TIED BACK TO. NOW WE HAVE ANOTHER SHOFAR. IN FACT, THIS TYPE FO SHOFAR IS THE MOST POPULAR ONE USED TODAY. NOW THIS SHOFAR COMES FROM THE KUDU ANTELOPE OF SOUTHERN AFRICA. NOW FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF HUNDRED YEARS, THIS IS THE PRIMARY SHOFAR BEING USED. YOU WILL SEE THE RAM'S HORN, BUT THAT IS MOSTLY IN ORTHODOX AND ULTRA-ORTHODOX SYNAGOGUES. WE ARE BASICALLY USING THIS KIND OF HORN TODAY.

>>INTERESTING. I COULD PRESUME THAT THE SHORT HORN AND LONG HORN MAKE DIFFERENT SOUNDS.

>>YES, THE LONGER THE HORN THE DEEPER THE SOUND.

>>YOU KNOW RANDY, ROZALIE AND I ARE BOTH JEWISH. WE WERE RAISED THAT WAY AND TWICE A YEAR WE WOULD GO TO THE SYNAGOGUE TO HEAR THE SHOFAR BEING BLOWN. IT WAS A RITUAL FOR IT TO BE BLOWN ON ROSH HASHANAH AND YOM KIPPUR. THE CANTOR WAS THE PERSON IN THE SYNAGOGUE THAT WOULD BLOW THE SHOFAR. HE WAS THE LEVITE. THE PRAISE AND WORSHIP I GUESS THAT IS SYNONYMOUS WITH THE CHURCH. BUT NEVER HAVE WE EVER HEARD ANYONE; NO OFFENSE TO ALL THE CANTORS OUT THERE, WHO HAS THE ANOINTING THAT, COMES WHEN YOU DO THIS.

>>I BELIEVE THAT G-D IS RISING UP A NEW STANDARD. G-D IS RISING UP A NEW SOUND. I BELIEVE HE IS RESTORING THE SHOFAR PRIMARILY TO THE GENTILE. YOU KNOW THE JEWS HAVE HAD THE SHOFAR FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, BUT NOW FOR THIS PROPHETIC SEASON, G-D'S REVEALING IT TO THE GENTILE. NOT ONLY IS HE REVEALING IT TO THE GENTILE BUT HE IS DOING A NEW THING WITH IT. IN THE PAST WE HAVE HAD THREE OR FOUR TRADITIONAL SOUNDS WITH IT, BUT NOW IT SEEMS THAT HE IS CALLING US TO PLAY FROM OUR SPIRIT.

>>SO THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN HOW IT'S BEING USED TODAY THAN IN THE PAST.

>>YEAH, THE THREE OR FOUR DIFFERENT SOUNDS THAT HAVE BEEN USED IN THE PAST IS ONLY A FOUNDATIONAL STARTING POINT. WITH SO MANY TYPES OF MINISTRY TODAY, WE HAVE TO FOLLOW THE PROMPTINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF G-D PLAYING THE SHOFAR IS NO EXCEPTION.

>>RANDY TAKE US BACK BIBLICALLY. WHEN AND WHERE WAS THIS SHOFAR FIRST INTRODUCED?

>>IT WAS FIRST INTRODUCED UP ON MT. SINAI WHEN G-D GAVE MOSES THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. G-D WAS ANNOUNCING HIMSELF AS THE COVENANT GIVER AND G-D OF THE HEBREW PEOPLE. IN EXODUS 19 IT SAYS THAT THERE WAS THUNDERING AND LIGHTNING AND THE SHOFAR SOUND GREW LOUDER AND LOUDER AND THE PEOPLE TREMBLED. IT REALLY GOT PEOPLE'S ATTENTION.

>>THIS IS PRETTY POWERFUL. WHAT YOU'RE SAYING THERE IS ALSO WHAT WE WERE SHOWING TO THE CAMERA, A PICTURE OF THAT TIME OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. WHO BLEW THE SHOFAR ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP?

>>ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP IT WAS G-D HIMSELF.

>>SO WE CAN SAY THAT THE SOUND THAT CAME THROUGH THIS REPRESENTED THE VOICE OF THE L-RD.

>>YES. IN FACT IN THE KING JAMES VERSION IN EXODUS 19:16 AND AGAIN IN VERSE 19 IT SAID "THE VOICE OF THE TRUMPET." SO THAT MEANS IT WAS G-D'S PROPHETIC VOICE. IT ALSO REFERS TO THAT VOICE IN REVELATION 1:10. JOHN SAID, "I HEARD BEHIND ME WHAT SEEMED LIKE THE VOICE OF A TRUMPET." IT WAS G-D SPEAKING TO JOHN.

>>SO WHEN WE SEE SHOFAR OR TRUMPET IN THE WORD, IT'S G-D'S WAY OF COMING ONTO THE SCENE.

>>YES.

>>WOW. YOU HAVE TO CATCH THAT. WHEN THIS SOUND COMES, IT IS SYMBOLIC OF HIS PRESENCE COMING. YOU KNOW RANDY IT MADE ME THINK THAT SCIENTIFICALLY, I'M NOT A SCIENTIST SO IF THERE IS SOMEWHERE OUT TO PROVE ME WRONG, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. BUT THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED A QUARK, WHICH IS THE SMALLEST PARTICLE, EVEN SMALLER THAN AN ATOM. A QUARK IS A FAST-MOVING POINT OF ENERGY. I HEARD IT SAID SOMEWHERE THAT WHEN THEY SPLIT A QUARK THERE IS SOUND. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? IT MEANS THAT FIRST CAME SOUND AND THEN CAME MATTER. SCIENCE IS AT THE POINT OF WHAT THE BIBLE SAID ALL ALONG THAT FROM THE UNSEEN COMES THE SEEN. SO HERE WE HAVE THE SOUND OF THE L-RD. THAT'S A BIGGIE RIGHT THERE TO DEAL WITH AND THAT'S HIS PRESENCE COMING ON. WOW THAT GETS ME WHEN I THINK ABOUT IT. RANDY SINCE THERE WERE NO TAPES FROM THE FIRST CENTURY FOR YOU TO HEAR AND LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF THE SHOFAR, HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT SOUNDS TO PLAY? HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S REPRESENTATIVE OF THE DIFFERENT USAGES.

>>WELL THE JEWISH TRADITION HAS IT IN TALMUDIC WRITINGS THAT THERE WERE FOUR TRADITIONAL SOUNDS. WE REALLY CAN'T FIND THOSE SOUNDS IN THE TANAKH OR THE OLD TESTAMENT, BUT WE DO FIND THEM IN THOSE RABBINIC WRITINGS. FOUR YEARS AGO WHEN G-D BEGAN RAISING ME UP TO DO THIS HE JUST SOVEREIGNLY ORDAINED A MEETING WITH A MESSIANIC JEWISH MAN OUT IN GEORGIA. I SAT DOWN TO HAVE BREAKFAST WITH THIS MAN, AND I WAS JUST STARTING TO LEARN ABOUT ALL THESE THINGS. I WAS VERY ZEALOUS TO LEARN THESE THINGS, TO LEARN THE DIFFERENT CALLS AND WHAT THEY MEANT. I WAS TRYING TO GET HIM TO TELL ME ABOUT ALL THIS STUFF AND HE JUST STOPPED ME IN MY TRACKS AND SAID, "WAIT. DON'T GET HUNG UP IN ALL THAT. WE ARE IN A SEASON WHERE G-D IS CALLING US TO PLAY THIS INSTRUMENT FROM OUR SPIRIT." AND I WILL TELL YOU WHAT, RIGHT ON THE FRONT END THE L-RD ORDAINED THAT MEETING TO SET ME FREE AND LET ME PLAY IT AS HE GIVES THE UTTERANCE. FROM ONE SHOFAR PLAYER TO THE NEXT, IT SEEMS LIKE G-D IS GIVING US EACH OUR OWN SET OF SOUNDS FOR HIS PURPOSES.

>>SO IN THE OLD TESTAMENT DAYS THAT WAS NOT THE CASE. IT WAS MORE STRUCTURED IT SOUNDS LIKE.

>>RIGHT.

>>AND THEY WOULD USE IT MILITARILY AS ONE WAY.

>>THEY WOULD USE IT PRIESTLY AND THEY WOULD USE IT MILITARILY.

>>WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

>>WELL, WHEN THE PRIESTS WOULD MOVE THE ARK OF THE COVENANT FROM PLACE TO PLACE, THE PRIESTS WOULD GO OUT IN FRONT OF THE ARK AND BLOW THE SHOFAR TO REPRESENT THE PRESENCE OF G-D COMING. THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DOING TODAY. WHEN WE RELEASE THAT SOUND, WE'RE ANNOUNCING THE PRESENCE OF G-D. THERE WERE MANY INSTRUMENTS MENTIONED THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, BUT THE SHOFAR IS MENTION MORE THAN ANY OTHER INSTRUMENT. IT REALLY SEEMS LIKE THAT IS G-D'S FAVORITE INSTRUMENT. THAT'S WHY I BELIEVE WE SEE SO MUCH FAVOR ON IT.

>>SO RANDY WHEN YOU PLAY THE SHOFAR, IT'S NOT LIKE SOMEBODY CAN JUST PICK UP A HORN AND START TOOTING AROUND THE HOUSE. I SENSE THERE IS A DIFFERENT RESPONSIBILITY THAT COMES ALONG WITH THIS INSTRUMENT. AT LEAST I SENSE THAT WITH YOU.

>>OH SURE, WHEN THE INSTRUMENT IS NEW, THERE IS A SEASON OF GRACE. BUT THEN G-D BEGINS TO SHOW YOU WHAT THE INSTRUMENT REALLY IS, AND THEN THERE IS A REVERENCE. THESE INSTRUMENTS ARE CAPABLE TO PLAYING REVELRY, BUT THAT IS JUST NOT WHAT IT IS. ONCE AGAIN, G-D IS GOING TO GIVE YOU YOUR OWN SET OF SOUNDS THAT USHER IN HIS PRESENCE.

>>NOW WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A CHANCE TO ALLOW RANDY TO DEMONSTRATE TO THE POWER. LISTEN TO THE POWER THAT COMES ACROSS THE TV.

>>MORE FORM THE CROSSOVER WHEN WE RETURN.

>>THREE-MINUTE BREAK.

>>WELCOME BACK TO THE CROSSOVER.

>>EVEN THOUGH IT’S THE TV, LISTEN TO THE POWER THAT COMES ACROSS THE TV.

>>{SHOFAR PLAYING}

>>YEAH MITCH BEFORE I PLAY THE INSTRUMENT, I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT A FEW MORE AREAS WERE THE SHOFAR HAS BEEN USED AND IS BEING USED NOW IN THIS SEASON. IT WAS USED TO USHER IN THE SABBATH. IT WAS ALSO USED TO USHER IN THE BEGINNING OF MONTHS, THE NEW MOONS. IT WAS ALSO USED TO INITIATE THE DIFFERENT FEASTS OF THE L-RD. IT'S INTERESTING THAT I HEARD GROWING UP THAT THESE FEASTS OF THE L-RD WERE JEWISH FEASTS. AND WHEN YOU READ THE WORD G-D SAYS, "THESE ARE MY FEASTS TO BE COMMEMORATED FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. WE'VE REALLY MISSED OUT ON SOME THINGS DUE TO ANTI-SEMITISM AND REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY. THE SHOFAR WAS ALSO USED TO ANNOUNCE THE APPOINTMENT OF KINGS. NOW THAT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT ONE OF THE REASONS THE SHOFAR IS GAINING SO MUCH POPULARITY TODAY IS BY THE SOVEREIGN HAND OF G-D. WE'RE ABOUT TO ANNOUNCE THE KING OF KINGS AND THE L-RD OF L-RDS.

>>HE WILL COME BACK WITH THE SOUND.

>>YES HE WILL. THE SHOFAR WAS ALSO USED TO INITIATE ASSEMBLIES AND HOLY FASTS AND EVEN ANNOUNCING REPENTANCE. IN JOEL 2:15 FOR EXAMPLE. NOW MILITARILY IT WAS USED IN THE BATTLE OF JERICHO. AT THE BATTLE OF JERICHO THERE WAS THE ARMY OF G-D THAT WENT OUT FRONT THEN THERE WERE THE PRIESTS BLOWING THE SHOFARS TO ACCOMPANY THE ARK OF THE COVENANT, EVEN AT JERICHO. THEN YOU HAVE THE REAR GUARD COMING UP AFTER THEM. FOR SIX DAYS THEY MARCHED AROUND THAT CITY ONE TIME. ON THE SEVENTH DAY THEY MARCHED AROUND SEVEN TIMES AND BLEW THOSE HORNS. G-D SAID TO BLOW A LONG BLAST AND SHOUT. THEY SHOUTED AND THE WALLS FELL. THEY WENT IN A TOOK THE CITY, JUST AS THE ANGEL OF THE L-RD TOLD THEM TO DO. AND G-D REMAINED FAITHFUL. EVEN GIDEON'S ARMY OF 300. THE 300 BLEW SHOFARS AND IN THAT CASE THE ENEMIES GOT SO CONFUSED THAT THEY TURNED ON THEMSELVES. IT WAS EVEN USED BY THE WATCHMEN ON THE WALLS. THEY WOULD BE POSITIONED ON THOSE WALLS AND WHEN THEY WOULD SEE DANGER APPROACHING THEY WOULD SOUND THOSE SHOFARS. AND THEN EVEN THE MILITARY USED THEM. JOAZ WAS ONE OF DAVID'S MIGHTY MEN. HE WOULD USE IT TO GATHER THE ARMY TOGETHER AND TO CALL THE WAR, AND EVEN TO CALL THEM BACK. IT WAS USED IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP AS WELL.

>>TELL US ABOUT YOUR MINISTRY.

>>YES, ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO SOME INTERCESSORS BROUGHT BACK A SHOFAR FROM ISRAEL AND HANDED IT TO MY PASTOR. I WAS PLAYING TRUMPET AT THE TIME, SO I SEEMED LIKE THE LOGICAL CHOICE TO HAND THIS INSTRUMENT TO. SO THEY DID. I THOUGHT I WOULD JUST START PLAYING IT, BUT IT TOOK A MONTH. A LOT OF SHOFARS HAVE SMALL OPENINGS, SO IT TAKES A WHILE TO GET USED TO IT.

>>RANDY I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN INVITED TO A LOT OF CHURCHES TO PLAY, AND I HAVE TO ASSUME THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER HEARD THIS SOUND. IS THAT ACCURATE?

>>THERE ARE QUITE A FEW. THERE ARE ONLY A REMNANT THAT HAVE HEARD THIS SOUND.

>>INTERESTING. A REMNANT? WHAT WOULD THE NORMAL REACTIONS BE AFTER YOUR PERFORMANCE? DO YOU HAVE PEOPLE COME UP TO YOU AND SAY THINGS?

>>WE HAVE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME COME UP TO US, PARTICULARLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER HEARD A SHOFAR BEFORE. EVEN PEOPLE WHO HAVE HEARD A SHOFAR BEFORE COMES UP TO US. IT'S THE SUPERNATURAL FAVOR OF G-D. IT IS HIS PROPHETIC VOICE. IT'S A SOUND YOU CAN DESCRIBE. IT MOVES SOMETHING INSIDE PEOPLE.

>>SO DONNA WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY TO YOU AFTER A SERVICE?

>>THEY ARE JUST AMAZED BY THE SOUND OF IT. AND ALSO THEY ARE SO MOVED BY THE SPIRIT WHEN THEY HEAR IT. THEY WANT TO KNOW SO MUCH MORE ABOUT IT AFTER THEY HEAR IT. WE'VE SEEN A LOT OF PEOPLE WEEPING COME FORTH. THEN THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO SAY IT GIVES THEM GOOSEBUMPS.

>>SO RANDY YOU WERE IN THE PETRO-CHEMICAL INDUSTRY FOR 20 YEARS, AND NOW YOU'RE GOING INTO THIS SHOFAR BUSINESS. I CAN JUST HEAR "OY-VEY" COMING FROM THE JEWISH MOTHER WONDERING WHAT IS HAPPENING TO HER SON, IF YOU HAD ONE OF THOSE MOTHERS LIKE I DID. WHAT WAS DONNA'S  REACTION TO THAT? WHAT WAS YOUR PARENTS REACTION TO GIVING UP A CAREER WITH BENEFITS TO NOW BEING A FULL-TIME SHOFAR BLOWER?

>>IT WAS REALLY HARD TO GIVE UP THE SECURITY OF KNOWING THAT YOU'RE WITH A BIG COMPANY WITH A 401K AND ALL THE BENEFITS OF BEING INVOLVED WITH A BIG COMPANY. WE KNOW THAT THE L-RD IS BIGGER THOUGH.

>>HAS HE ALWAYS PROVIDED FOR YOU?

>>ALWAYS.

>>THERE CAME A TIME WHEN I BEGAN TO GET CONVICTED, BEING AT WORK THERE. OVER A PERIOD OF A MONTH OR TWO OF CONVICTION, I HAD TO GIVE IT UP. I HAD TO KNOW G-D HAD BETTER FOR ME. IT HASN'T BEEN EASY. IT'S A FULL-TIME JOB TRYING TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON HIS FAITHFULNESS INSTEAD OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT HE HAS SHOWN HIMSELF TO BE MORE THAN FAITHFUL.

>>I HATE TO SAY IT, BUT WE'RE OUT OF TIME.

>>THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS WERE PUBLISHED BY AN INTERNATIONAL GROUP OF JEWISH SCHOLARS ON CHRISTIANS AND CHRISTIANITY.

“JEWS AND CHRISTIANS WORSHIP THE SAME G-D.”

“JEWS AND CHRISTIANS SEEK AUTHORITY FROM THE SAME BOOK, THE BIBLE, WHAT JEWS CALL THE TANAKH AND CHRISTIANS CALL THE OLD TESTAMENT.”

“CHRISTIANS CAN RESPECT THE CLAIM OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE UPON THE LAND OF ISRAEL.”

“JEWS AND CHRISTIANS ACCEPT THE MORAL PRINCIPLES OF THE TORAH.”

“NAZISM WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN PHENOMENON.”

“THE HEALING OF THE IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCE WILL NOT BE SETTLED UNTIL G-D REDEEMS THE ENTIRE WORLD AS PROMISED IN SCRIPTURE.”

“A NEW RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JEWS AND CHRISTIANS WILL NOT WEAKEN JEWISH PRACTICE.”

“JEWS AND CHRISTIANS MUST WORK TOGETHER FOR JUSTICE AND PEACE.”

COME YE AND LET US GO UP TO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE L-RD TO THE HOUSE OF THE G-D OF JACOB, AND HE WILL TEACH US OF HIS WAYS. THESE ARE PROPHETIC TIMES AND G-D IS AT WORK. JOIN THE CROSSOVER AND KNOW THAT AS WE DRAW CLOSER TO G-D, WE GET IN TOUCH WITH HIS HEART, HIS NATION, HIS MESSIAH, ISRAEL, THE CHOSEN PEOPLE AND THE CHOSEN LAND. JOIN THE CROSSOVER AS WE DEFEND ISRAEL AND CELEBRATE G-D'S WORD, HONOR THE RIGHTEOUS AMONG THE NATIONS AND NEVER FORGET THE HOLOCAUST OR JERUSALEM. G-D IS RESTORING THE ARTS BACK TO HIS GLORY AS WELL AS JEWISH-CHRISTIAN RELATIONS. HE IS RESTORING HIS PEOPLE BACK TO THE LAND AND THE VERY LAND ITSELF IS BLOSSOMING SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY. COME AND LET US PRAISE THE L-RD. JOIN THE CROSSOVER AS WE DISCOVER THE HISTORICAL EVIDENCE FO THE BIBLE TOGETHER. COME LET US PRAISE THE L-RD. DISCOVER THE BIBLICAL DANCE AND ARTS, AND G-D'S PURPOSE OF HIS APPOINTED TIMES FOR JEWS AND CHRISTIANS ALIKE.

>>{MUSIC PLAYING…}

>>EACH OF US MUST ASK OURSELVES WHAT SOUND OF THE SHOFAR IS G-D BLOWING FOR ME TO HEAR. IS HE CALLING ME TO ASSEMBLE AND COME BEFORE HIM? DOES HE WANT TO GIVE NEW DIRECTION IN MY LIFE? IS HE CALLING ME TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF G-D? IS HE CALLING ME TO WORSHIP HIM MORE INTIMATELY, TO BE IN HIS PRESENCE, TO CROWN HIM KING OF MY LIFE, TO CONSECRATE MYSELF OT HIM WITH GREAT COMMITMENT, TO JUDGE THE SIN IN MY LIFE, TO PREPARE FOR HIS COMING? DOES G-D WANT TO REVEAL SOMETHING TO ME? IS THERE AN AREA OF MY LIFE HE WANTS TO REDEEM? IS HE CALLING ME TO RELEASE SOMETHING I'VE BEEN HOLDING ON TO? IS THERE A PLACE OF REST IN HIM THAT I HAVEN'T FOUND? IS THIS SOUND OF THE SHOFAR TO REPENT? DURING ROSH HASHANAH THE JEWS OFFER THE FOLLOWING PRAYER: "BLESSED BE THOU, O L-RD OUR G-D, KING OF THE UNIVERSE WHO HAS SANCTIFIED US BY THY COMMANDMENTS AND TO HEAR THE CALL OF THE SHOFAR.

*In both the Jewish and Christian traditions, the name of G-d is treated with honor and respect.  In the Jewish tradition, in order to show respect, the name of the L-rd is written without a vowel.  The idea is that if a document with His name on it is destroyed or deleted, His name will be spared because it was not written out fully.
