The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) begins tonight at sundown until sundown on Saturday. Let us fast, pray and humbly examine ourselves. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any sin in your life and confess them to God the Father. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us, once again, of all unrighteousness.
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.“ – 1 John 1:8-9
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens,Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” – Hebrews 4:14-16
The Day of Atonement (Hebrew: Yom Kippur) is the sixth of the Biblical Feasts commanded by God. It is a necessary backdrop for understanding the Messiah’s crucifixion and payment for our sins.
Kippur is from the Hebrew word kaphar, meaning “to cover.” On Yom Kippur we remember the atoning blood sacrifice that Jesus Himself provided as the holy “Lamb of God” for all who receive Him as their Savior and Lord. “For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.“ – Leviticus 17:11
