Ray Bentley, Day of Atonement / September 28, 2020
The Day of Atonement is also known as Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year. This is the sixth of the divine appointments (feasts) listed in Leviticus 23. It will be fulfilled by the Second Coming of the Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus, the restoration of National Israel, and the final judgment of the world. Yom Kippur was the only day the high priest could enter the Holy of Holies and pronounce the name of God. This marks the end of the Ten Days of Awe from Rosh Hashanah (Feast Of Trumpets) to Yom Kippur; ten days of repentance. The Hebrew word Kippur means “Ransom.” This word is parallel to the word “redeemed” and means to atone by offering a sacrifice. Jesus was the final sacrifice on the Cross.
