Yom Kippur 2011

Yom Kippur is the holiest of Israel’s high holidays. It is a Day of Atonement and reconciliation for the entire nation of Israel. It is a day of personal introspection as well, with fasting and repentance. And while it is a solemn day, it carries with it an undertone of joy at the prospect of being forgiven and starting the New Year with the knowledge of being sealed in the Book of Life for one more year. How sad to think they do not know the One who made all that possible for every day, as long as they live!

At sundown on the 9th of Tishri, the beginning of the 10th day, the High Priest would enter the Holy of Holies in the Temple, and by a blood sacrifice, make restitution for the sins of the people. “For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before God.” (Leviticus 16:30).

Yom Kippur is symbolic of the work of Yeshua, our High Priest, who ever lives to makes atonement for us before the throne of God. It is the ultimate sacrifice of His own body that bridges the gap between us, and a righteous holy God. Israelis know the importance of a blood sacrifice, but they don’t make the connection because of the hardness of their hearts. One day, God promises to open their eyes…and they will mourn because they missed out on so much by refusing to receive their Moshiach~Savior.

Zechariah 12: 9-11 (Complete Jewish Bible)

“And I will pour out on the house of David and on those living in Yerushalayim the Spirit of grace and prayer; then they will look to Me whom they pierced. They will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only son, and be in bitterness on His behalf like the bitterness for a firstborn son.”

Revelation 1:7

Look! He is coming with clouds! Every eye will see Him, including those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the Land will mourn Him. Yes! Amen!

Paul writes in Hebrews 10:16, 17 (Complete Jewish Bible)
“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days,” says Adonai: “I will put My Torah (laws) into their hearts, and write it on their minds,” 17 then He adds, “Their sins and their wickednesses I will remember no more.”
