Celebrate the Small Things: Strange Trumpet Sounds: Is God Warning Us?

Before I celebrate, I thought I'd share something with y'll that I found when researching for a writing project that I'm working on.

Warning: It is a little strange and has to do with an atmospheric noise that people heard all around the world from 2011 to 2012. It sounds a lot like a shofar.

In the Torah, the shofar was used to warn the people.  Seven different angels, in Revelation 8, are given and blow a shofar prior to opening the specific seals assigned to them to release whatever judgement they are to pour out onto planet earth.
 
So is God trying to get our attention about something? Possibly. The entire world is in crisis .right now.

"There will be no more delay; on the contrary, in the days of the sound from the seventh angel when he sounds his shofar, the hidden plan of God will be brought to completion, the Good News as he proclaimed it to his servants the prophets." Revelations 10:6b-7 (The Complete Jewish Bible)

Of course, there is a scientific explanation for this. When there is a great number of natural disasters and strange weather patterns, it causes an atmospheric noise. But then, the Big Bang theory is parallel to the Creation Story. It was a lot of energy the first few days. A good book to read on this is, The Science of God, by Gerald L. Schroeder.

I believe God can use whatever He wants to speak to us. Genesis 1: 14 God said, "Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to divide the day from the night, let them be for signs, seasons, days, and years...et al. (The Complete Jewish Bible)

So here are three video clips of what I'm talking about.

This one was heard at a Ray's game. The sportscasters were bothered by it.


The next one is a clip made from news reports and people around the world hearing the same eerie noise.


This next one gives Biblical theory coupled with scientific explanations. The narrator also sounds off a shofar so you can here what it actually sounds like.


All three gave me chills. How about you?

Now for my celebration this week:

*No-No and Ya'akov, my daughter and son-in-law are staying safe. They both work in Tel Aviv and live in Bene Ayish, right between Ashkelon and Ashdod.

*The rest of my family is doing great. Sir Poops is still hanging out and is back in diapers. He's visited the Great White Watery Abyss of Torture a few times this week.

*And little by little, I've been getting back on track with my writing. Although, I've a got a really  strange problem with my MS. I had several chapter 35's with no ending. And today, I discovered more of the same chapter sprinkled through the last 10. Me eye-brains are crossing on this one.

*Also, we're still eating yummies from the garden.

Hope everyone has a chocolate-filled weekend. Happy Shabbats if you practice!

Hugs and chocolate,

  4. Try as the scientific community does, they not only don't prove God doesn't exist, they confirm that He does. Look at a simulation of the Big Bang. To me, it just demonstrates God's awesome power.

  5. Whoa, scary...a billboard read "Don't make me come down there...GOD" God's been trying to get our attention for ages...for me I try to listen to Him.

    1. God can manifest Himself in anything. I do my best first thing in the morning to hear Him.

  6. Pretty sure there's nothing supernatural about that noise. Surely it must be wind or other atmospheric disturbance.

    1. I still hold to God manifesting in anything. He's surely the Creator and Master Mind behind everything.

    1. I've been preoccupied since the dog fell ill, rockets firing in Israel, and the birth of my new grandbaby.

  8. I hear sounds and I see shadows of people (I have blogged about this) all the time so the sounds of God.... I can believe.

    cheers, parsnip

  9. If the noises are a sign - great! If not - fine too :)
    Glad you're back on track with your writing and that your family is safe.

    1. Either way it makes you really think about things. God-things. Science-things. It's all rather interesting.

  10. I've never heard of the word shofar. Interesting. Glad your family is still safe in Israel.

    1. We own a shofar. It's usually blown around the Jewish New Year. And this year begins the Shemita year. The Seventh year when the land is to rest. Maybe I'll do a post on that soon.

  11. Who knows what the noise is? Could be anything, so why not that, right? Glad you're still enjoying garden yummies. I'll definitely be having a chocolate filled weekend. :)

    1. That is right. Who really knows? But God can use whatever He chooses. He is the Mastermind behind the Universe, after all.

  12. Glad everyone is safe. Good that you've been able to turn attentions to the mss.
    I've just had a burning party to get rid of numerous typed copies of various books that are now in print. And some rejections, as well. Good to do that, once in a while.
    Whatever is going on, I'm not sure (can't do videos, but sounds strange). I guess we'll just have wait and see what happens.

    1. To purge is good. Right now, I need to print mine out and figure out what is going on. Need to buy some ink first.

    1. Thank you for the prayers. And yes, stuff like strange atmospheric noises makes one think. I just read this morning in Ezekiel that God would 'use the land' to make something happen.

      The parting of the Red Sea is a great example. There is also scientific proof the parting had something to do with planetary shifting at the correct moment that God led His people to the sea. All very interesting.

I'm dying to know what you think.
