September 2020 Prayer Points – Intercession for High Holy Days
Intercession for the Jewish People
This September two high holy days occur as outlined in Leviticus 23:23–27. They are Rosh Hashanah (Head of the Year)/Feast of Trumpets (19th) and Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement (28th). These are appointed times for God to meet His people.
The sound of the shofar awakens His children to the coming judgment, as well as, the start of the secular, Jewish New Year. Ten days later God appointed Israel’s high priest to provide for the atonement of His people’s sins, a day of special intimacy between the priest and God. After making atonement for his own sins by exactly following God’s instructions, the priest would come into God’s presence by entering the Holy of Holies. Adjustments were made with the destruction of the Temple, and good deeds became a substitute for the sacrifices of animals. Rabbinic tradition teaches that one’s name is written in the Book of Life when good deeds outweigh nasty deeds.
Finally, the God’s third appointed time in this season is the Levitical fall feast Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles (Oct. 2-9). This festive period follows the repentance and restored relationship with God that happens at Yom Kippur. This is time for rejoicing and thanking God because His presence dwells with His people.
“For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for yourselves; for it is the blood that makes atonement because of the life.” Leviticus 17:11 CJB
“He has appeared once at the end of the ages in order to do away with sin through the sacrifice of himself.” Hebrews 9:26b CJB
