The 10 Days of Awe is the time period between the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah (September 13-15, 2015) and Yom Kippur (September 22-23). People have become very interested in learning about the Jewish holidays because of the recent books, Four Blood Moons by John Hagee and the Mystery of the Shemitah by Jonathan Cahn.
During the 10 Days of Awe, Jews will use this as a time to repent to God and make restitution and reconciliation with people. It is a shame that Gentiles don’t celebrate the Jewish holidays, because we really need to repent and make restitution every year. This is what revival and spiritual awakening are all about.
Many people believe that Rosh Hashanah is a picture of the rapture of the church, while Yom Kippur is the time of judgment at the end of the tribulation. With the appearance of the four blood moons and solar eclipses during the Shemitah year (the Sabbath year occurring every 7 years), I believe that God is calling us to revival. This may be the end time harvest described in the Bible. It is time for the nations to repent.
I hope that you will use this preparation time to confess each and every sin you have committed to the Lord. If your sin is against the Lord, then confess directly to him. If you sin is against another person, then you must try to make restitution and reconciliation with them. Time on earth is short. Take a look at the Sin List from A-Z to help you confess all your sins to the Lord. Read this passage from Hebrews. Notice that the word “today” is used two times. Today is the day for repentance. Don’t delay.
“TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS AS WHEN THEY PROVOKED ME, AS IN THE DAY OF TRIAL IN THE WILDERNESS, WHERE YOUR FATHERS TRIED Me BY TESTING Me, AND SAW MY WORKS FOR FORTY YEARS. “THEREFORE I WAS ANGRY WITH THIS GENERATION, AND SAID, ‘THEY ALWAYS GO ASTRAY IN THEIR HEART, AND THEY DID NOT KNOW MY WAYS’; AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH, ‘THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST.'” Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin” Hebrews 3:7-13 (NASB).
