Why 40 Days?

God considers 40 days a significant time period spiritually:

  • God transformed the earth via Noah and the 40 days of rain.
  • Moses was with God 40 days on Mt. Sinai receiving the 10 commandments.
  • The Spies spent 40 days in the promised land.
  • David was transformed by Goliath’s 40-day challenge.
  • The city of Nineveh was transformed by Jonah’s 40 days of preaching.
  • Jesus was empowered for ministry after 40 days in the wilderness.
  • The Disciples were transformed by spending 40 days with Jesus after the Resurrection.
