He is here! The King of The Universe is in the Field!
We have heard the blast of the “Horns” and have been awakened to the cleaning and preparations of our hearts and minds. As the scripture says, Let this mind be in you, which was also in Messiah Yashua- Philipians 2:5 and in Psalms where is states, Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. (Psalms 51:10).
These ten days between Yom Terurah and Yom Kippur, provide additional insight into what we need to correct in our lives. May we use all that we have learned to make the proper Teshuvah and change our lives for the better!
Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur)
Friday, October 3rd at sunset is the Day of Atonement. The “Time of the Kippur” The day of Covering.”
“Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.”- Leviticus 23: 27
Yom Kippur in Messiah
“This picture of a once a year Yom Kippur sacrifice depicts many truths. It speaks of the priestly work of Messiah Yeshua. Israel’s High Priest was initially dressed like royalty, but then took on simple garments and made atonement for the people. Our Messiah is Divine, and “although He existed in the form of God, He did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men” (Phil 2:6-7). Yeshua humbled Himself, being obedient to the point of death. He thus paid the sacrificial price for our sins. He is the High Priest of our confession. He entered a greater and more perfect Heavenly Tabernacle – one not made by mortal men. The blood He offered there was not that of mere goats and calves but was His own precious blood. With it, He entered the Holy Place once for all – having obtained eternal redemption for all who would call upon His Name.” – Batya Wootten, Israel’s Feasts And Their Fullness- pp 237-238
We Shall Wear White
On this day the priests of ancient Israel had a special washing in preparation for the offerings (Lev 16:4,24) Aaron washed himself and then was dressed in white linen garments. In our case we have been washed with the Blood of Messiah and on Yom Kippur we will wear white symbolizing the Holiness of the Bride of Messiah and being washed in His atoning blood. If you don’t have white clothes, no worries, please come knowing that the one that has cleansed you from your sins and made you white as snow, has the pure white garments that you will wear when you meet Him face to face on the great and awesome day of His return. – John 13:10, Revelation 1:5, Revelation 7:14
