Yom Kippur-Holy Day

Yom Kippur in the Jewish religion is the day set for atonement of sins, as you read below through parts of  Leviticus God gives Moses clear instructions on what to do and when to do them. There is a process that God had them follow and as we look on these sacred duties of the priests, begin by looking at verse 16 God has told Moses and given instruction for Aaron not to go into the Most Holy place whenever he wanted or he will die.

Leviticus 16 (NIV)

The Day of Atonement
16 The Lord spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron who died when they approached the Lord. 2 The Lord said to Moses: “Tell your brother Aaron that he is not to come whenever he chooses into the Most Holy Place behind the curtain in front of the atonement cover on the ark, or else he will die. For I will appear in the cloud over the atonement cover.

Let’s move down to verse 29 God tells them exact timing and instructions for this very Holy Day

29 “This is to be a lasting ordinance for you: On the tenth day of the seventh month you must deny yourselves[c] and not do any work—whether native-born or a foreigner residing among you— 30 because on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. Then, before the Lord, you will be clean from all your sins. 31 It is a day of sabbath rest, and you must deny yourselves; it is a lasting ordinance. 32 The priest who is anointed and ordained to succeed his father as high priest is to make atonement. He is to put on the sacred linen garments 33 and make atonement for the Most Holy Place, for the tent of meeting and the altar, and for the priests and all the members of the community.

34 “This is to be a lasting ordinance for you: Atonement is to be made once a year for all the sins of the Israelites.”

And it was done, as the Lord commanded Moses.

What does this mean for a Christian of today? God will always look at this His Holy Day, but He gave us Jesus as the sacrificial lamb, Jesus came in to die on the cross so that these Old Testament rules of sacrifice are obsolete, done-over.

How blessed are we that we don’t have to do this? Do you want to be forgiven of sins?  Pray “Jesus, I am a sinner, please forgive me, wash me clean and I make you my Lord and Savior”  as many have said one and done. No fasting, nothing held, except the love and sacrifice of Jesus for us on the cross.

Shalom to you on this day, Pray!
