Teshuvah – Day 39 (9/29/17)

Posted: September 29, 2017 in Teshuvah 40 Day Devotional

9th Day of the 10 Days of Awe

Tonight at Sundown begins the most holy day on God’s calendar, Yom Kippur. Tonight also begins the Sabbath Day. Torah readings for Jews around the world are Isaiah 53:1-2, Zechariah 12:10 and for Messianic Believers, Hebrews 9:1-10:25.

There are several different names for this High Holy Day, and each name carries a special meaning:

  • Yom Kippur – Hebrew translation, Yom=Day, Kippur=Atonement, which means to cover, make reconciliation, to pacify or appease; to clear, purge, or cleanse
  • Day of Covering – When the sins of the nation will be covered for another year
  • Face to Face – This is the only day the High Priest could speak to G-d face to face, the only day he could go into the Holy of Holies
  • Day of Forgiveness – Passover was for the individual, Day of Atonement is for the cleansing and forgiveness of the nation
  • The Fast – Acts 27:9
  • Day of Grace – Free to us, but at a great cost to our Redeemer

Tomorrow ends the 40 days of Teshuvah (repentance) and the 10 Days of Awe.

I encourage everyone to set this day aside as holy – for the sake of our nation!!!
