Yom Kippur

Sunset October 4, 2022


the Jewish day of

Yom Kippur.

It is the holiest day of the Jewish year.


It occurs 10 days after Rosh Hashanah.

The days between

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

are called the Days of Awe.

~ ~ ~

As believers in Jesus,

we do not

have to


the Jewish feast days.

Yet, I learn a lot from understanding

the Jewishness of the Bible.

Before we continue this page,

we share an interesting audio teaching

that you might like:


Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur is about repentance.

It is a day that highlights to the Jews

that they need to be


God is our Creator.... And God is HOLY -

and we need to submit to him

in obedience and in repentance.

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord.

In Hebrew,

saying Holy three times means - 

The Highest Holy

For Christians:

We know that Jesus is the way to salvation.

Yet - We also need to be serious about staying in close communion with God and repent when we sin.

 - See farther down for more on that. - 

Romans 10:1

tells us that God wants us to pray

that the Jewish people

not only seek God the Father,

but that they recognize and accept

Jesus and his sacrifice for their sins.

Please join me in Prayer

Holy God,

We pray on this Yom Kippur -

which is

the holiest day that you gave on your calendar.

We pray for the Jewish people

that as they deeply ponder this day

and as they go to their place of worship.

We pray that 

they will yield to you

and you will open their eyes

to the truth of your son -

Jesus Christ - who is their Messiah.

We pray in


Holy name of Jesus,


Kadosh   means   Holy

For me, repentance takes my mind to the cross.

I remember an old hymn that said, “Jesus, keep me near the cross.”

God has shown me the wisdom

of staying near the cross.

I want to stay near the cross.

I want to keep a tender heart that easily asks for forgiveness from my Heavenly Father.

I want to be like David –

who was a man after God’s heart.

- -

I cry out as David did,

“Create in me a clean heart, O God;

and renew a right spirit within me.”

Psalm 51:10

We have two more songs...

Here is that Great Hymn


"Near the Cross"

LYRICS by Fanny Crosby

Jesus, keep me near the cross,
There a precious fountain
Free to all, a healing stream
Flows from Calvary’s mountain.


In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.

Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and mercy found me;
There the bright and morning star
Sheds its beams around me.


Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day,
With its shadows o’er me.


Near the cross I’ll watch and wait
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand,
Just beyond the river.


We worship you, Lord, for you are Holy.
