September is a pivotal month, and I don’t think it is a coincidence that it aligns with 3 important holy holidays.
Each are present day opportunities and signs.
While these are Jewish holidays, as Gentiles grafted into the vine, we can learn much by the prophetic significance of each and how it applies to the present.
We must keep our eyes and our hearts fixed on Him. These holidays declare we are in a time of deliverance and rescue. The gates of Heaven are opening and the veil between heaven and earth thins if we will turn our attention to Him and notice.
The lunar calendar is God’s calendar and the one which we need to observe regarding what is happening in our world and how it coincides with current events. September/October are active months that host three important Jewish holy days.
(Note: The Jewish holidays begin at sundown and end at sundown on their respective days.)
The information below is co-written with my friend, Kim Potter and A New Thing Ministries.
“The first of these holidays is Rosh Hashanah. This year it begins at sundown on September 6th and ends at nightfall on September 8th.

Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) is the anniversary of the universe, the day God created Adam and Eve. It is the Jewish New Year and part of the Days of Awe or High Holidays. It is also sometimes referred to as the Day of Judgement.
It takes place at the New Moon and signals a time of cleansing, repentance and a First Fruits where we are to bring an offering to the Lord. It is a significant time of prayer.
It began with the blowing of the Shofar at sundown. The shofar is used as both a declaration of war, but also a declaration of God’s presence and joy. It is a time of celebration acknowledging God and a ten day preparation for what follows – Yom Kippur.
Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement) begins September 15th and ends on the 16th. It is the holiest day of the year.
It is said to be the day we are closest to God and the veil between heaven and earth thinnest.

Lev. 16:30 speaks of this day, “For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleanses from all your sins before God.”
It is to be a time of fasting and a sabbath before the Lord in which no work is to be done as the people reflect on God, on what He is saying and repentance of sins. Can we agree how important this is now not only in America but around the world?
Yom Kippur is followed by the third holy day, Sukkot (Feast of Booths.) It lasts seven days. This year it begins on September 20 and ends on September 27th.
This is when the Jews were instructed to build a tent outside. They were to live in it and eat their meals under this covering. It was to remind them of God’s rescue and provision for them when they escaped Egypt and were headed to the Promise Land.
It is a time of joy, happiness and unity.
Let me re-emphasize–it was a time to remind them that God had rescued them in the past and He would do it again. We need to remember that today.
The final celebration of the month, although not considered a holy day, falls immediately on the heels of Sukkot. It is Simchat Torah which is from September 27th through the 29th. It is a joyous time marked by reading the Bible, feasting, celebrating and dancing.
(You can find additional information about the Jewish feasts and holy days on Chabad.org.)
I don’t know why God is emphasizing these holidays this year to me, but I do know He is. We are on His timetable which should be more than obvious by now. Were we on OUR timing, we would have changed things years ago… true?–Kim Potter
Although the Enemy has tried to shift the times and seasons, God is still in control.

We must be aligned with Him to recognize and partake of the supernatural events surrounding this month. Kim and I and others are setting aside September as a time of worship, prayer and fasting to go deeper with God, align with HIS calendar and celebrate His faithfulness. We are standing to see His rescue!
It is a time to remember that He has always been the God of justice. He is the Deliverer. We need to keep our eyes and hearts firmly on that truth.
Remember, “Moses answered the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today.” (Exodus 14:13 NIV).
Do not be afraid. Stand firm against any attacks of the enemy. Believe and trust what the Lord is showing you and don’t be discouraged by the storms happening around you. God is planning our deliverance. It is coming.
The Gates are Opening!
“The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the Lord at their head” (Micah 2:13 NIV).
God is at work. He is the One who goes before us. There has been a season of injustice but He is opening the way for you and breaking open the gates that have held you back in the past. Breakthrough is coming. Restoration is coming. God’s justice and blessing are being poured out where injustice tried to build a wall.
Please join us as the Ekklesia around the world unites to worship and watch what He will do.
It is also interesting to note that this year these holidays occur three weeks earlier than normal. That’s hardly a coincidence. God is about to move on our behalf. We believe He is going to do a new thing. The question is, as the Bible says, will we perceive it? Will we be a part of it?
We declare, “Yes, we will.”
