The Ten Days of Awe are from Yom Teruah to Yom Kippurim
The Ten Days of Awe begin at sunset on the first day of Yom Teruah and end at sunset on Yom Kippurim each year.
Joel 2:13 – “Tear your heart . . . and turn to Yahweh, your God; for he is gracious and merciful.”
Ezekiel 14:6 – “Thus says Yahweh, ‘Repent, turn away from your idols and turn away from all your abominations’.”
Aseres Yemei Teshuvah, or the Ten Days of Repentance are the last ten days starting on Yom Teruah and leading up to the day of Yom Kippurim. The last ten days are also known as the Days of Awe, a term that is more commonly known as the Days of Jacob’s Trouble and represent the tribulation period that will purge the Earth of evil. If you only count the days between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur the number of days is seven, the same as the number of years in the tribulation period!
The fate of the people that are neither totally righteous nor totally wicked is not yet sealed at this point. Starting this evening there are only ten days until Yom Kippurim, the day when all must pass before Yahweh to be judged for their actions of the last year, when he determines their fate for the next year and the books are sealed.
The first two days of Aseres Yemei Teshuvah are the two days of Yom Teruah, and the third day is the Fast of Gedalia. Beginning on the second day, the shofar is blown every day as a warning to return to Yahweh in repentance.
The tenth day is the last day of Teshuvah, the day of Yom Kippurim. Those who are neither totally righteous nor totally wicked will have until Yom Kippurim to repent. Make full use of this time lest you be separated forever and consigned to the Lake of Fire for all eternity.
Yom Teruah, the Dress Rehearsal for the Resurrection of the Dead in Yeshua, has come and gone (or been fulfilled), and Yahweh has given the unbelieving ten days time to repent and call on his name before he determines their fate for the next year and the books are sealed.
1 John 1:9 – “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
The Days of Awe, also known as the Aseres Yemei Teshuvah, or the Ten Days of Repentance, are ten of the most critical days of the year. There are but a few days left before Yom Kippurim to repent and return, to do teshuvah, before a person’s fate is sealed for the coming year. My prayer for you is that you will make full use of this time lest you be separated forever and consigned to the Lake of Fire for all eternity.
