Day of Atonement
Yom Kippur is a day of fasting, meeting together, and enjoying a Sabbath rest. Sins were to be confessed and atonement sacrifices made. Today, we rejoice that God has washed our sins away by the blood of Messiah Yeshua.
This is a solemn assembly commanded in Leviticus 23. Our focus is to examine ourselves, knowing that repentance brings refreshing. “For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God” (Romans 14:10).
