Shabbat Shuvah is the Shabbat

between the Feast of Trumpets

& Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement

What Does "Shuvah Yisrael" mean?


The words "Shuvah Yisrael"

mean

"Return, O Yisrael,"

and are taken from Hosea 14:1,

where  is commanding the nation of Yisrael

(By the blood of Messiah Y'shua,

you are grafted into the commonwealth of Yisrael)

to turn back to Him;
to repent of their sins,
and to seek the forgiveness that He, alone, provides. 
 
SHUVAH LITERALLY MEANS
 
REPENT & RETURN

 

THIS IS THE WORD USED
THROUGHOUT THE BRIT CHADASHAH,
The NEW COVENENT,
TESHUVAH MEANING TO REPENT OF SIN
AND TURN BACK TO 
OBEYING THE WORD OF !

THE DAY OF ATONEMENTS
  ..

On Erev Shabbat, Friday night , September 13   

on the traditional Hebraic calendar

as the sun sets,

we enter the most set apart day of Yom Kippur,

 the Day of Atonement. 

 It is more correctly called Yom Kippurim,

the Day of Atonements,

 for throughout this day, we pray to

for forgiveness for all of our sins.

Yom Kippur is a day of abundant prayer.

The prophet Hosea, in 14:1-2,

implores the people of  with these words:

"O Yisrael, return unto thy Elohim;

for you have fallen by your iniquity.

Take with you words, and return unto , say to Him,

 'Take away all iniquity, and accept that which is good:

so will we render as bullocks the offering of our lips.'"

 And so, on this day, more than any other,

we bring such words to Him.

 The order of service is detailed in the Machzor,

the Prayer Book for the day.

Praying words written by someone 

thousands of years ago may seem strange to many;

 almost as though not a prayer at all.

But on the contrary, these words

are spoken from the very deepest part of the penitent.

They are from Scriptural portions of 

Torah, The Writings and the Prophets.

Praying in this way has two very important functions.

The first is to allow the one praying to focus

on the condition of their heart,

rather on what to say next.

 Such prayers must be spoken only with kavannah,

 which is intention and with understanding.

The second reason for such prayer

is to unite the entire nation as one.

Psalm 133 declares:

 "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is

for brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious oil upon the head,

that ran down upon the beard,

 even Aaron's beard; that came down

upon the skirt of his garments;

 like the dew of Hermon,

that comes down upon the mountains of T'Zion;

 for there commanded the blessing,

even life for evermore." 

  On this day, more than on any other,

all of Yisrael is unified by our prayers,

 as we stand together as we stood thousands of years ago,

all of us at Mt. Sinai.


Take a moment and read Yaacov 5 (James 5).

It is a message probably first taught at this season.

It is full of references

to the commonly held knowledge of this awesome day.

 It begins with a reference

to the affliction of our souls upon this day,

 "Go to now, rich men, weep and howl

for your miseries that shall come upon you. "

 Then, verse 9 deals with the act of confession

among each man and his brother

 and of the reality of 's Judgment,

 "Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned:

 behold, the judge stands before the door.

Verse 12 states,

"But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven,

neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea;

 and your nay, nay; lest you fall into condemnation."

Finally, in Yaacov  5:16 (James 5:16) we read:

"Confess your faults one to another,

and pray one for another,

that you may be healed.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."

This leads us to the next important prayer of Yom Kippur,

called Viduy,

which means Confession.

The actual theme of the day is Teshuvah, Repentance.

 But the word actually means "to turn around,"

and that is what is required of us.

 As Believers, we often confess our sins

and ask forgiveness

 of those we have offended and of .

But on this day, we realize that this is simply not enough.

Today, we must repent of even our good deeds.

According to YeshaYahu 64:6 (Isaiah 64:6)

 "But we are all as an unclean thing,

and all our righteous deeds are as filthy rags;

and we all do fade as a leaf;

and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."

We must recognize that our best is just not good enough

and that we stand before the Holy One of Yisrael

with no right to be there.

So, Viduy is the first step.

In this prayer, we ask for   to forgive us

and all Yisrael for every sin.

We do so by standing with our head and body

bent in submissive contrition

as we declare that we and our fathers have sinned.

Many strike their heart with the fist of their right hand

 as they admit that we have robbed; we have spoken slander;

 we have we have caused perversion; been obstinate;

 turned away from following  and His instructions.

We confess sin that we may have never have even been tempted by,

but we do so as one people, standing in the gap before the

 only True and Holy One,  Elohim.

Together, we ask  to wipe away

every evil inclination and to make our hearts pure

to stand before Him.

Is that it? Oh, no. We then proceed to pray Al Chayt,

which means "for the sin." 

We ask forgiveness "for the sin we have sinned before You;

for the sin we have sinned in secret; for the sin we have sinned with our lips;

for the sin we have sinned with our thoughts;

for the sin we have sinned through the hardness of our hearts.

" And we continue to pray for the forgiveness that is only possible

 because of the mercy of .

I pray that this Yom Kippur,

as all Yisrael joins together as one,

that you will join us in the Presence

of the Holy One of Yisrael.

I pray that you will just slow down awhile

and cease from all your striving

 for some time with your family

and others with whom has joined you.

All of the praying and fasting that is going on

still only atones for the sin against

 We are taught that sin against others

 requires us to seek forgiveness

and to make restitution. 

Only when we are reconciled with one another may

we be reconciled to Elohim. 

I pray that you will ask  Adonai,

 "Search me, O Yah and know my heart:

try me, and know my thoughts;

see if there is any wicked way in me,

and lead me in the way everlasting."

(Psalm 139:23-24)

Psalm 25:8 declares "Good and upright is ;

therefore will He instruct sinners in the way."

His way is truth. My prayer is that this day,

this year, and always you,

your family, all Yisrael and the entire household of faith

may walk in His way

and may know the full provision

of the Kingdom of ,

the joy , the peace and all good things

of the Shalom of

b'shem Moshiach Y'shua.

We pray for the redemption

and restoration of all Yisrael

scattered throughout the four corners of the world

and within the Land of Yisrael.

We pray that our brothers and sisters will return,

Teshuvah to Torah, Return to , 

by the blood, the water, the Ruach HaKodesh

and the resurrection victory of Moshiach Y'shua.

We pray for the peace of Yerushalayeem

in the Name of Our Prince of Peace,

Messiah Y'shua.

May this be a Shabbat where the words of our hearts

and the meditations of our hearts are

acceptable to You , our Elohim..

in Y'shua's Mighty Name we pray

..Awemain.
