What are the Ten Days of Awe? (Credit: Chosen People Ministries)
We are about to observe the civil Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, which literally means, the “head of the year.”
The festival is one of the seven great festivals. It is appointed by God to be celebrated on the first day of the seventh month of the Jewish calendar, Tishrei.
All seven of these Holy Days are found in the Bible in Leviticus chapter 23, as well as in a number of other passages in the Pentateuch/Torah. There is also a vast amount of rabbinic material describing the festivals and how they should be observed.
The Holy Days are prophetic in nature, and over the course of the year provide a roadmap to redemption; Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, Pentecost, the New Year, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles.
The holidays are similar as each one involves a rest from labor, worship, offerings, and usually a reminder of a great event in the history of Israel. Oftentimes, a holiday is also tied to the agricultural season and in some way is connected to the harvest.
It is important to note the Hebrew word translated as “holiday” in Leviticus 23 is better when understood as “appointments.” God asks Israel to remember what He did for them in history over 150 times in the Hebrew Scriptures.
He set up these “appointments” (or “appointed times”) to help His people commune with Him and “remember” His good works in their history.
Each of these Holy Days was established by God and revealed to the children of Israel by Moses, who received the calendar as part of the Sinai revelation.
I also believe that every one of these festivals (“appointed times”) was fulfilled in the person of Jesus the Messiah, and along with many scholars, believe the first four Spring festivals pointed to His first coming and the latter three in the ‘Fall’ are related to His second coming.
These holidays have a variety of themes and customs, and are observed in a similar manner by most Jewish people, whether they be Ashkenazic (Eastern European descent) or Sephardic (primarily from Spain and North Africa), New Yorkers, Brooklynites, or Israelis.
The major themes of the Jewish New Year are Kingship, Remembrance, and the Blowing of the Shofar.
Over the centuries, our rabbis and sages have compiled a book entitled the Machzor, which is used in the synagogue as the prayer book and service guide for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (See Leviticus 23:23- 25; Numbers 10:10; 29:16 for the biblical details).
Rosh Hashanah is the first of three great festivals to be celebrated in the Fall. The other two are Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles).
The great theme of Rosh Hashanah is repentance, and the overarching theme of the High Holiday season is forgiveness.
In fact, the first day of Rosh Hashanah begins a season of ten days of repentance, often called the Ten Days of Awe by the Jewish people. The observance of the Day of Atonement concludes these ten days.
It is understood by most Jewish people that repentance is the path that leads to salvation and the forgiveness of sin, which is secured at the closing moments of Yom Kippur.
Though it is difficult to explain the difference, the Jewish community stresses forgiveness far more than personal salvation, especially as salvation is understood by most Christians. Jewish people are not as apt to think about personal salvation or a secured future beyond the grave in the same way Christians do.
However, Jewish people do think about forgiveness during this time of year, and are usually eager to repent before God and reconcile with whomever they may have offended as well. But forgiveness is viewed as temporal, needing annual renewal, and received on the basis of God’s grace as well as our repentance and willingness to be obedient to His Law, found in the Five Books of Moses. At least this is the traditional Jewish teaching on the subject.
The Ten Days of Awe, or the Ten Days of Repentance, are observed during the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
Jewish tradition calls upon us to ask for forgiveness and to forgive others as one vital part of receiving God’s forgiveness at the conclusion of the ten-day period.
The Purpose for the Devotionals:
During the Ten Days of Repentance, we will be providing our readers with ten devotions, one for each day. These devotions are written by Dr. Mitch Glaser, president of Chosen People Ministries.
These devotional thoughts will hopefully be a blessing to you and help sensitize you to what your Jewish family and friends are observing as well.
We will also present a passage or two from the Bible for you to meditate upon, and allow the Lord to speak to you through His word during this important season of the year.
The Apostle Paul suggests the importance of understanding and even experiencing the Jewish festivals in his letter to Timothy. He writes,
“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
I have found the above verses to be very helpful and practical in understanding the role of the festivals in the lives of believers in Jesus the Messiah.
In using the term Scripture, Paul is referring to the entirety of the Old Testament. Certainly, we can infer that this is also true of the New Testament, but specifically, Paul has the Hebrew Scriptures in mind.
Every part of the Bible is useful to us in the process of growing to spiritual maturity. This would include the Jewish holidays.
Paul is not suggesting that we must keep these festivals in any particular way, nor is he suggesting that we are under obligation to keep them! Rather, he tells us that every verse in every one of the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament is helpful and may be utilized for spiritual benefit.
This would be true of the festivals outlined in Leviticus 23 and would include the three fall events: the New Year, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles.
Therefore, learning more about these “feasts” is helpful for your spiritual journey. And for me, the emphases of the first two holidays on repentance and forgiveness creates a magnificent backdrop for understanding the work of Jesus the Messiah, who died that I might live.
(Credit Unsealed.Org) …Based on objective biblical and astronomical convergences, we have potentially entered into a final ten-year timeframe, Fall 2017 to Fall 2027, which parallels what is commonly known as the Ten Days of Awe (i.e. Tishri 1, “Yom Teruah/Trumpets,” to Tishri 10, “Yom Kippur/Atonement”). This countdown to the end, which we call the Ten Years of Awe, marks the final ten years of this present age prior to the thousand-year reign of Christ on earth. Inspired by the Fall Feasts of Leviticus 23, the Ten Years of Awe mirrors an intense period of ten days between the first and tenth day of the seventh month until final judgment is rendered on the Day of Atonement (10 Days = 10 years, similar to the “weeks” of years in Daniel 9:24-27).
As we hope to demonstrate, there is ample evidence from Scripture to expect a momentous “resurrection event” as we approach three full years since the “starting gun” of the Ten Years of Awe back in September of 2017. Even the date of the Revelation 12 Sign itself supports a Third-Day event of biblical proportions: The great sign of Revelation 12:1-2 came into alignment on the Third Day (9/23) of the Ten Days of Awe back in 2017 (Feast of Trumpets/Tishri 1 was on 9/20 that year).
Given all the resurrection and new birth imagery associated with the “Third Day” in Scripture, what are the implications as we near the completion of three years since the Rev12 sign, the end of summer 2020, and the start of the fourth year in the final Ten Years of Awe timeline?
Now, for your spiritual consumption, here is a survey of biblical passages that support the Third-Day Birthday theory. To further define the Third-Day Birthday in relation to the Ten Years of Awe timeline, we are anticipating the fulfillment of Revelation 12:5, the “Birthday” of the Body of Christ—i.e. the resurrection of the dead and the transformation/rapture of the living—to occur during or upon the completion of the Third Year of Awe (the deadline is September 2020; specifically, a brief window from 9/17 to 9/23). According to the Ten Years of Awe pattern, if we go beyond the Fall Equinox (9/22-23), this theory falls apart and we’ll have to recalibrate. However, if this pattern holds true, well…you know…
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
