Welcome To Teshuvah Day 40-The Day of Atonement
The Day of Atonement
The decisions are made
The book is being closed
They stand praying and fasting
Afflicting their souls
Were their prayers heard
Was the repentance deemed real
Is there going to be Atonement
The kind that seals the deal
As the High Priest entered
Going in behind the veil
Hush fell and a silence
Waiting now for a word to tell
Would the offering be accepted
Were we forgiven for our past
Would there be Atonement
We wait anxiously and we fast
The rehearsal isn’t just for show
Futuristic and timeless but how
What does this day prepare to show
We who are born again know now
Our High Priest and Savior
Did not enter a human sanctuary
It is His blood that speaks in heaven
That makes the Testament functionary
No longer just a rehearsal
It was a pattern for us to learn
It is Jesus blood He poured out
Oh how I pray you can discern
He entered with His precious blood
That purifies our heart and mind
Jesus blood redeems and His Atonement
Cleanses our conscience once and for All time
So today before the books are closed
Be sure your name is inscribed
This is our inheritance by Jesus blood
We are redeemed washed and sanctified
For now the law and shadow
Make sense and are fulfilled
Because it was His precious blood
Sprinkled poured out not spilled
Sprinkled over our hearts and minds
So we can become brand new
Free to serve the Living God
Heavenly pattern now in view

When we are saved we become ministers. The Bible says we are called with a holy calling. Then we are told we are given the ministry of reconciliation.
When we have had a real encounter with the Living Holy God, He changes everything about us. We become a new creation. Repentance from this place is deeper and more meaningful than anything we have ever experienced before.
We not only repent for ourselves but are grieved to the heart for the result and the consequences sin has had on our people and on our Nation.
Moses came back down and shared with the children of Israel the commandments of God.
Thus a new beginning and beginning from the place of Atonement.
It is time to start a new year. To be more fruitful and take more ground. The season of repentance has drawn to an end. I pray we continue the work of repentance as a life style. But for now we must go to work and plant.
After having gathered in the fruit of this season it is time for the Festival of ingathering.
We will now build our Sukkah and prepare for the feast of Tabernacles.
We have been found worthy by “The Blood” His blood taken in and placed on the mercy seat behind the veil in Tabernacle. Now we At One Ment with our Lord.
We live in and eat our meals in our Sukkah remembering how He led us through the wildness and now we have come into the Promised Land. Our God has brought us to a good land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
The jubilee year can only be announced on Yom Kippur. Think about it.
Jesus took and unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord. Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him. He said to them, “Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
If you have not made Jesus Christ the Lord of your life, now is the time and today is The Day. I urge you brothers and sisters, I implore you on Christ’s behalf; Be reconciled to God. Amen
Teshuvah my favorite time of the year
God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.
Until Next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
