Welcome to Teshuvah 2022
August 28 - October 5
"Don't Go Back"
We are preparing for Teshuvah 2022, with 33 speakers and 40 days of high worship, prayer, and repentance. For those of you that are new, the Hebrew month of Elul begins the season of Teshuvah by blowing the shofar (ram’s horn) and seeking God in sincere repentance.
Teshuvah indicates both a turning away from evil as well as a turning toward what is good. In turning toward God, one dedicates his/her entire soul to serving Him. As we know in biblical history, the children of Israel continued to defy God. Elul is linked to the sins committed at Mt. Sinai and God providing the 10 commandments; God showed mercy and gave the second set of tablets, and forgave His people. Like Israel, the body of Christ continues to defy God, but, God is sovereign, just, and merciful always looking to show mercy to His people.
This is the time of the season that God has put aside to attend a special ear of listing for His children to repent and turn back to him - 'The King is in the Field". No matter what a believer has done, no matter what the enemy has said about your sin 'Don't Go Back' God is waiting for you to turn back to Him with a true heart of repentance. Teshuvah is also a time to be forgiven, to forgive, reflect, and return to God. Finally, Teshuvah aligns with Yeshuah's direction to forgive (Matthew 11:25). Don't be like many of the disciples that turned their back on God (John 6:66).
Prepare to join us; God is looking and waiting for you. I promise you will never be the same.
