Welcome To Teshuvah Day 40-The Day of Atonement

Welcome To Teshuvah Day 40-The Day of Atonement

YOM KIPPUR

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.

Luke 4:16-21
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
