Many Christians have knowledge and understanding concerning the seven feasts of Israel, as traditionally taught in North America. However, many are unaware of an ancient Hebrew concept called Teshuvah, a word alluding to repentance, and how it is linked to Moses interceding the second 40 days when Israel sinned with the golden calf (Exodus 32).
The 29 Days of Elul continue until the Feast of Trumpets. Then there are ten days of awe when it is believed the gate of heaven is uniquely open for our petitions and intercession. This season climaxes on the Day of Atonement. Offerings are given during this time of repentance and this is what this special offering donation is designated towards. These offerings are sown into the 7 outreaches of the ministry.
