One in Messiah Congregation

Yom Kippur - A Day, but NO Atonement - if you don't have the Messiah Yeshua

The Blood of the sacrifice was to be the most important feature of the biblical Day of Atonement. NOTHING can change this! Nothing can be a substitute for the obligatory sacrifice the Law of Moses demands and without which there can be no atonement.

Since the Temple was destroyed, no blood sacrifice offered and the priesthood abolished, a proper Day of Atonement has been impossible to keep.

To whom shall we go?

Within a few years after Messiah's death on the tree and His Resurrection God permitted the Temple to be destroyed and the priesthood abolished. It had served it's purpose and was no longer needed. The temple and priesthood are "shadows of things to come". They "point" to the Messiah, the Great Hight Priest and the perfect Lamb of God, without blemish, who took away the sins of the world when He shed His Blood on the tree.

There is only one way to know God and enjoy peace with Him through the forgiveness of sins, and that is believing in Yeshua the Messiah Whom the biblical Day of Atonement "typified" and pointed to. Read all of Heb. 9


The word afflict in Hebrew is "anah" meaning abase, humble or repent and never as "fast" in the scriptures. The Hebrew word "tzum" means fast and is "Never" used in connection with the Day of Atonement. Rabbinical Judaism has tried to replace "the Blood Sacrifice" with fasting.


Two different words with two different meanings.


Fast - צוּם tsum and Afflict - ענה anah


H6031 ענה anah aw-naw'

A primitive root (possibly rather identical with H6030 through the idea of looking down or browbeating); to depress literally or figuratively, transitively or intransitively (in various applications). (sing is by mistake for H6030.): - abase self, afflict (-ion, self), answer [by mistake for H6030], chasten self, deal hardly with, defile, exercise, force, gentleness, humble (self), hurt, ravish, sing [by mistake for H6030], speak [by mistake for H6030], submit self, weaken, X in any wise.
