The Day of Atonement

Spread the love

Lev. 23:27 “The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves, and present an offering made to the LORD by fire.”

If there is a day for the Jews which is the Holiest of all days, it is no other than the Day of Atonement. The Jews knew that they had to prepare their hearts and be right for this day. This was the day when the entire year’s sins for the whole nation were ‘atoned’ for or ‘covered’ through a blood sacrifice. It was a day of a face to face meeting with God. The Jewish name of this day is “Yom Kippur” which means “day of covering or ransom.”

So solemn is this day that before this day comes, the priests would hide themselves away so that they didn’t defile themselves and avoid sinning. This day of Atonement was also known as the day of “face to face”. This was because it was the one day a year where the high priest could come into the presence of God. Prophetically, it speaks of the day Jesus returns at His second coming. Those that are not saved by this day are not given another opportunity. That day is their last chance.
