 Day Of Atonement 

The Day Of Atonement

January 02, 2023

The Day Of Atonement is a feast day that takes place in the seventh month on the tenth day. It is the second feast day within the month Tishri, and we are given a chance to atone for our sins. Unlike other feast days, where Israel celebrates with food, during the Day Of Atonement we are commanded to afflict ourselves (fast). During the fast we are not to eat or drink (Jonah 3:7) for the entire day (sundown to sundown) we are also not to work. 

Understanding Atonement

February 23, 2023

 (Leviticus 23:26-32) 

26 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be a holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.

28 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the Lord your God.

29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.

30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.

31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

(Leviticus 16:29-31)

29 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among:

30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the Lord.

31 It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever.

When we fast we also must follow the Christ's example, though we afflict ourselves inwardly we must maintain and show outwardly our joy and thanks to THM for the sabbath. 

Christ Our Atonement

December 26, 2016

We finally get the understanding of Fasting and Reconciliation through Christ in  (Matthew 6:16-18)

16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 

17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. afflicting our souls for our sins must be done humbly not in a proud spirit. 

We also see within the scriptures that there will come a time that we will observe this day in gladness. 

Mark 2:17. When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 18. And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not? 19. And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.20. But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. Romans 5:10. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received....  As of Now we await our Lord's return and we Fast and Pray in hopes to see that day of gladness.

The Atonement.
