Between Leviticus 23:25 and 23:27 there is a period of 10 days that have come to be known as the ‘ Days of Awe ‘ . . .
We understand to some degree the concept of The Feast of Trumpets ( Yom Teruah ) being the day of the blast or sounding of the alarm for what is to come. Ten days later is the Day of Atonement, the day of the kippur – the covering of the sins of Israel. It is also the annoucement of the coming of the Great King. There is the picture in these ten days of preparation for those things to come. What does it mean to me as a believer in these days ?
We will deal with this concept in the next few days as we ‘prepare’ for the Day of Atonement and look at this as a time of introspection and self-examination and repentance.
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
Ephesians 5:27 . . . that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and blameless.
Matt 5: 23 “If therefore you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you,
24 leave your offering there before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
