I’ve stumbled onto another goosebump-y factoid, this one about the Jewish New Year or Rosh HaShanah. This year, it will fall on Monday, September 26, 2022, but the Jews celebrate for two days, so it will start at sunset on September 25 and end at sunset September 27.
The biblical name for Rosh HaShanah is Yom Teruah (lit. “day of blasting”), so it is also known as the Feast of Trumpets. It is marked by extended prayer services during which the shofar is blown a total of 100 blasts on each of the two days. It is also the first of the Yamim Noraim (Days of Awe), which are the Jewish High Holy Days that begin on Rosh HaShanah and end on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).
Rosh HaShanah is also known as Yom haDin – i.e., Day of Judgment. On this day, the names of the righteous are inscribed in the Book of Life, while the names of the wicked are blotted out. Those in the intermediate class are offered ten more days to reflect, repent, and become righteous. The end of the ten days, of course, is Yom Kippur.
Jews honor Yom haDin through self-examination. But imagine what it will be like when Jesus fulfills it in spirit and in truth. For hundreds of years, Catholic saints and seers have been telling us about The Warning. This coming End Times event, which lines up closely with the Sixth Seal, sounds a lot like Yom haDin! I have compiled some of the things visionaries have told us over the past several centuries.
- People will believe that the end of the world has come.
- Everyone will see the state of their soul as God sees it.
- Nothing will be hidden, not to make you suffer, but rather out of love and mercy.
“You will suffer because of your unconfessed sins. Do you understand My insistence on showing you why you have to go to the Sacrament of Penance to be ready? Otherwise, you will experience the pain of purgatory or hell. You will all see it whether you like it or not. It will be the greatest gesture of My mercy. I will give everyone one last chance.” – Jesus to Sulema Gomez, August 2012
