Part of the party was a workshop for children to craft their own shofars, glaze and all. As the rabbi stood explaining to the children about shofars prior to them getting to work, he discussed that only a kosher shofar was one with marrow inside the horn. There are many other horns that we could use, but they weren't the same because they don't have the marrow. Why would Hashem require bone marrow inside the shofar?
It was seconds before He showed me why. What is bone marrow? It is the LIFE of the horn. The bone marrow holds the keys to the life of each shofar. The life is in the blood. But in order to properly use it, all of the bone marrow must die. (It is a picture of your atonement essentially.) Once it does, encased in its hard exterior, it is to be completely removed. It is then REPLACED by the filling of the breath of life that Hashem has given all of us when we place our mouths to its end. This horn then becomes the embodiment of His Ruach HaKodesh, or Holy Spirit. So essentially, even our rams' horns represent the message of the Lord that we must first receive the sacrificial death, bury the remains and be open to the wind of the spirit of God, just as Yeshua did as our provided ram. Not all horns are the same; all are unique in their own right just as you are. I hope every time you hold your shofar you declare your gift of breath through its curvy exterior and remember the lengths the Lord goes to show you His sacrificial love. And when you put the shofar down, continue to act on that principal in your daily walk with our Mashiach. Breathe the Almighty in and EXHALE! The results will be heard and felt around the world. Chag sameach, and may you blow Hashem's breath over His creation today and proclaim His soon return!
For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life.
Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.
