On September 17 -, 2012, devout Jews from around the world will enter the year 5772-5773 on the Jewish calendar. This date is a result of counting the time of the creation of Adam to this year's Feast of Trumpets, also known as Rosh Hashanah, meaning the head of the year. Many Jewish traditions are linked to this special day of the year.
God's calendar is based upon the cycles of the moon and the Feasts. For this reason our ministry for years has recognized a season to prepare for the coming year, a time called Teshuvah.
This annual cycle begins on the first day of Elul and concludes on the Day of Atonement - making a total of forty days of Teshuvah. During these forty days a person should perform a self-examination and remove from their lives any spiritual hindrance, repent of any sins, and ask your fellow man for forgiveness if you have offended them or sinned against them. The reasons for this spiritual reflection is that your heart will be pure before God and that He will make a good decision for you for the coming year.
For many years, Pam and I have set aside this season as an appointed time of reflection and preparation for God's will and direction to be enacted in all we do. We also believe it holds a special favor at this season. During this time we plant special offerings, called Seasons of God offerings, and begin to present our most urgent needs of prayer to God.
