The Day of Atonement

22-23 September 2015  / 10 Tishrei 5776

 

On the first day of the seventh Jewish month, Tishrei (late September or early October), the shofar/trumpet is blown during Rosh Hashanah, which signifies that a momentous event is about to take place.

According to Leviticus 23:23–25, this special Sabbath is to be holy unto the Lord, and was an important time to prepare for the Judgment. Ten days later, the Day of Atonement (a.k.a. Yom Kippur) is commemorated, which is the highest holy day on the Hebrew/Biblical calendar.

Repentance and forgiveness is the primary focus of this special holy day, and when the temple in Jerusalem was still standing, it was the one day of the year that God allowed the high priest, and only him, to go into the holy place to make atonement for his sins and the sins of the people.

It is sad to watch Jewish people praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem (via the Kotel), knowing that they do not even know the One who can truly save their souls─the Lord Jesus Christ─the true Messiah of Israel!

It is this same Jesus, whom Almighty God raised from the dead, “by Whom we have now received the atonement,” and “Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto Him.”

Hebrews 4:14–16 "Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

May God have mercy on all those (whether Jew or Gentile), who have yet to see that it is Jesus, “In Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace;”

I am just amazed at how God ensured that the day of Jesus’ conception would be highly exalted by His chosen people without them really knowing the ultimate significance of that very special day until the time appointed.

And I believe that it was on The Day of Atonement that Jesus, the Son of the living God, was miraculously conceived by "the power of the Highest," within the veil, where no eyes could see, except the Holy Father.

I know this is not what men may teach about the birth of Jesus Christ, but I did not learn this from men, but by the Holy Spirit who is within me. And regardless of when Christ came into this world, for those who have not received the atonement that Almighty God offers through His beloved Son, they will not be allowed entry into the Holy City.

Jesus said, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." (John 3:5)

Isaiah 51:5-6 "My righteousness is near; My salvation is gone forth, and Mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon Me, and on Mine arm shall they trust.

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but My salvation shall be for ever, and My righteousness shall not be abolished."

Daniel 12:1-3 "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of Thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time Thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever."

All praise and honour and glory be unto the One who sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb of God, forever and ever! Amen!
