Joh 14:1 "Don't let yourselves be disturbed. Trust in God and trust in me.

Joh 14:2 In my Father's house are many places to live. If there weren't, I would have told you; because I am going there to prepare a place for you.

Joh 14:3 Since I am going and preparing a place for you, I will return to take you with me; so that where I am, you may be also.

Joh 14:4 Furthermore, you know where I'm going; and you know the way there."

Zec 13:7 "Awake, sword, against my shepherd, against the man who is close to me," says Adonai-Tzva'ot. "Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered; I will turn my hand against the young ones.

Zec 13:8 In time, throughout that land," says Adonai, "two-thirds of those in it will be destroyed — they will die, but one-third will remain.

Zec 13:9 That third part I will bring through the fire; I will refine them as silver is refined, I will test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'This is my people' and they will say, 'Adonai is my God.' "

Zec 14:16 Finally, everyone remaining from all the nations that came to attack Yerushalayim will go up every year to worship the king, Adonai-Tzva'ot, and to keep the festival of Sukkot.

Zec 14:17 If any of the families of the earth does not go up to Yerushalayim to worship the king, Adonai-Tzva'ot, no rain will fall on them.

Zec 14:18 If the family of Egypt doesn't go up, if they refuse to come, they will have no [annual] overflow [from the Nile]; moreover, there will be the plague with which Adonai will strike the nations that don't go up to keep the festival of Sukkot.

The Feast of Trumpets in biblical times was celebrated in a far more festive fashion than it is today. Although this is a two-day holiday, preparations for this feast begin a full month in advance. On the Jewish cal-endar is a forty-day season called Teshuvah(return or repentance). It begins on Elul 1 and ends on the Day of Atonement (Tishri 10). This forty-day sea-son is a time for one to annually examine his life and restore relationshipsbetween God and man. The first thirty days of this season are the thirty days of the month of Elul. The last ten days of this forty-day season are the Feast of Trumpets and Day of Atonement or the ten High Holy Days (Days of Awe).

What is Elul?

"Elul" is the Sixth Month of the year, counting from "Nisan," called in the Chumash, "the first month." Counting from "Tishrei", the month of Rosh HaShanah, "Elul" is the twelfth, and last month in the year. Like the names of the other months of the Hebrew Calendar, "Elul came up", or "returned with," those Jews who returned to Israel from the 70-year Exile in Babylonia. The expression "returned with" is particularly significant in this case in that this is the month of "Return to Hashem," or "Repentance."

Elul is the name of the month which we are given each year to prepare for the "Days of Awe:"

The sound from the shofar is broken, a series of staccato blasts. The broken sound is said to remind the people they need to break their evil inclinations.

The shape of the shofar is not straight like a trumpet. The end is curved and bent as a reminder to bend in respect to God.

The sound is meant to be a rousing call to repentance on the part of each individual. It is meant to awaken everyone to make them remember the Creator and forsake evil ways and return to God. The sound is also meant to inspire. It is a reminder that man should strive to break the impulses of his heart which are evil with the sinful cravings of the world.

Tekiah—A pure unbroken sound that calls man to search his heart, abandon his evil ways, and seek forgiveness through repentance.

Shevarim—A broken, staccato, trembling sound. It typifies the sorrow that comes to man when he realizes his wrong and desires to change his ways.

Teruah—A wave-like sound of alarm calling upon man to stand by the banner of God.

TekiahGedolah:"the great Tekiah," a single unbroken blast, held as long as possible. (A combination of Tekiah, Shevarim, Teruah, ending with a TekiahGedolah.)

The Use of the Shofar in the Bible

The shofar or ram's horn, has always held a prominent role in the history of G-d's people in the Bible:

Israel conquered in the battle of Jericho with the blast of the shofar (Joshua 6:20).

The shofar will be blown at the time of the ingathering of the exiles of Israel to their place (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 27:13).

The shofar was blown to signal the assembly of the Israelites during war (Judges [Shoftim] 3:27; 2 Samuel 20:1).

Lev 23:23-25

On the first day of the seventh month there was to be shabbathon, rest, i.e., a day of rest (see Exo_16:23), a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation, the suspension of laborious work, and the offering of a firing for Yehovah, which are still more minutely described in the calendar of festal sacrifices in Num_29:2-6. תְּרוּעָה, a joyful noise, from רוּעַ to make a noise, is used in Lev_23:24 for שֹׁופָר תְּרוּעָה, a blast of trumpets. On this day the shophar was to be blown, a blast of trumpets to be appointed for a memorial before

Yehovah (Num_10:10), i.e., to call the congregation into remembrance before

Yehovah,

Num 10:8 It will be the sons of Aharon, the cohanim, who are to sound the trumpets; this will be a permanent regulation for you through all your generations.

Num 10:9 "When you go to war in your land against an adversary who is oppressing you, you are to sound an alarm with the trumpets; then you will be remembered before Adonai your God, and you will be saved from your enemies.

Num 10:10 "Also on your days of rejoicing, at your designated times and on Rosh-Hodesh, you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; these will be your reminder before your God. I am Adonai your God.

The seventh month of the year, like the seventh day of the week, was consecrated as a Sabbath or sabbatical month, by a holy convocation and the suspension of labour, which were to distinguish the first day of the seventh month from the beginning of the other months or the other new moon days throughout the year.

For the whole month was sanctified in the first day, as the beginning or head of the month; and by the sabbatical observance of the commencement, the whole course of the month was raised to a Sabbath.

Adonai s fall holy days18

the seventh month was to secure to the congregation the complete atonement for all its sins, and the wiping away of all the uncleannesses which separated it from its God, viz., on the day of atonement, which fell within this month, and to bring it a foretaste of the blessedness of life in fellowship with the Lord,

viz., in the feast of Tabernacles, which commenced five days afterwards. This significant character of the seventh month was indicated by the trumpet-blast, by which the congregation presented the memorial of itself loudly and strongly before Yehovah on the first day of the month, that He might bestow upon them the promised blessings of His grace, for the realization of His covenant.

Yom HaDin: The Day of Judgment

Another name for Rosh HaShanah is Yom HaDin, the Day of Judgment. It was seen that on this day, G-d would sit in court and all men would pass before Him to be judged. Three great books will be opened as each man is weighed in the balance and placed into one of three categories (Talmud, Rosh HaShanah 6b). It has been taught that the school of Shammai says that there will be three classes on the final Day of Judgment, one of the wholly righteous, one of the wholly wicked, and one of the intermediates. The wholly righteous are at once inscribed and sealed for life in the world to come; the wholly wicked are at once inscribed and sealed for perdition (Talmud, Rosh HaShanah 16b-17a).

Yom HaKeseh: The Hidden Day

In Psalm (Tehillim) 27:5 it is written, "For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock."

Yet another name for Rosh HaShanah is Yom HaKeseh, "The Day of the Hiding" or "the Hidden Day." The term keseh or keceh is derived from the Hebrew root kacah, which means to "conceal, cover, or hide." Every day during the month of Elul, a trumpet is blown to warn the people to turn back to G-d, except for the thirtieth day of Elul, the day preceding Rosh HaShanah. On that day the trumpet is not blown, and is therefore silent. This is because much about Rosh HaShanah is concealed and shrouded in mystery. The mystical aspect of Rosh HaShanah is indicated in Scripture: "Sound the shofar on the New Moon, in concealment of the day of our festival" (Psalm [Tehillim] 81:3). Satan, the accuser, is not to be given notice about the arrival of Rosh HaShanah, the Day of Judgment.

Rosh HaShanah is known as Yom HaZikkaron, the Day of Remembrance. Leviticus (Vayikra) 23:24 calls the day "a memorial" (zikkaron). Remembrance is a major theme in the Bible. We can see by examining the following Scriptures that G-d remembers us and that we are to remember G-d in all of our ways.

There are two elements of remembrance:

a) G-d remembers us (Genesis [Bereishit] 8:1; 9:1, 5-16; 19:29; 30:22; Exodus [Shemot] 2:24-25; 3:1; 6:2,5; 32:1-3,7,11,13-14; Leviticus [Vayikra] 26:14,31-33,38-45; Numbers [Bamidbar] 10:1-2,9; Psalm [Tehillim] 105:7-8,42-43; 112:6). In fact, G-d has a book of remembrance (Exodus [Shemot] 32:32-33; Malachi 3:16-18; Revelation 3:5; 20:11-15; 21:1,27).

b) We must remember G-d (Exodus [Shemot] 13:3; 20:8; Deuteronomy [Devarim] 7:17-19; 8:18; 16:3; Numbers [Bamidbar] 15:37-41).

THE CHURCH

The righteous will be protected during the tribulation period. The wicked will face the wrath of G-d during the tribulation period (YamimNora'im), known in Hebrew as the Chevlaishel Mashiach, and will never repent. The average person has until Yom Kippur till his fate is sealed forever. In other words, the average person will have until the end of the seven-year tribulation to repent and turn to G-d. The average person on Rosh HaShanah is judged by G-d and is neither written in the book of life or the book of the wicked. His fate is yet to be decided. The average person and the wicked have to go through the "Awesome Days," the tribulation, until they reach Yom Kippur (the end of the tribulation when their fate is sealed forever). Once you are written in the book of the wicked, you can never get out of it (Revelation 17:8). These are people who never, ever, will accept the Messiah Yeshua.

THE CHURCH

A theme and term associated with Rosh HaShanah in Hebrew is HaMelech (the King). The shofar blown on Rosh HaShanah is known as the last trump, which Rav Sha'ul (the apostle Paul) mentioned in First Thessalonians 4:16-17. At this time, the believers in the Messiah who are righteous (tzaddikim) according to Yom HaDin (the Day of Judgment) will be taken to Heaven in the rapture (natzal) along with the righteous who had died before this time. On Rosh HaShanah, the coronation of the Messiah Yeshua as King will happen in Heaven (Revelation 5). Yeshua, who had come to earth during His first coming to play the role of the suffering Messiah, Messiah ben Joseph (Yosef), will be crowned as King over all the earth in preparation for His coming back to earth to reign as King Messiah (Messiah ben David) during the Messianic age, the Millennium, or in Hebrew eschatology, the AthidLavo (Revelation 19:16; 20:4).

THE WEDDING

Mat 25:1 "The Kingdom of Heaven at that time will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went out to meet the groom.

Mat 25:2 Five of them were foolish and five were sensible.

Mat 25:3 The foolish ones took lamps with them but no oil,

Mat 25:4 whereas the others took flasks of oil with their lamps.

Mat 25:5 Now the bridegroom was late, so they all went to sleep.

Mat 25:6 It was the middle of the night when the cry rang out, 'The bridegroom is here! Go out to meet him!'

Mat 25:7 The girls all woke up and prepared their lamps for lighting.

Mat 25:8 The foolish ones said to the sensible ones, 'Give us some of your oil, because our lamps are going out.'

Mat 25:9 'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both you and us. Go to the oil dealers and buy some for yourselves.'

Mat 25:10 But as they were going off to buy, the bridegroom came. Those who were ready went with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut.

Mat 25:11 Later, the other bridesmaids came. 'Sir! Sir!' they cried, 'Let us in!'

Mat 25:12 But he answered, 'Indeed! I tell you, I don't know you!'

Mat 25:13 So stay alert, because you know neither the day nor the hour.

Lev 23:23 Adonai said to Moshe,

Lev 23:24 "Tell the people of Isra'el, 'In the seventh month, the first of the month is to be for you a day of complete rest for remembering, a holy convocation announced with blasts on the shofar.

Lev 23:25 Do not do any kind of ordinary work, and bring an offering made by fire to Adonai.' "

Lev 23:26 Adonai said to Moshe,

Lev 23:27 "The tenth day of this seventh month is Yom-Kippur; you are to have a holy convocation, you are to deny yourselves, and you are to bring an offering made by fire to Adonai.

Lev 23:28 You are not to do any kind of work on that day, because it is Yom-Kippur, to make atonement for you before Adonai your God.

Lev 23:29 Anyone who does not deny himself on that day is to be cut off from his people;

Lev 23:30 and anyone who does any kind of work on that day, I will destroy from among his people.

Lev 23:31 You are not to do any kind of work; it is a permanent regulation through all your generations, no matter where you live.

Lev 23:32 It will be for you a Shabbat of complete rest, and you are to deny yourselves; you are to rest on your Shabbat from evening the ninth day of the month until the following evening."

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur


Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur4

In the Bible, Yom Kippur bears three names: the Day of Atonement, the Day of Judgment, and the Sabbath of Sabbaths.

Yom Kippur occurs on the tenth day of the 7 month (Tishri). This is a holy day of the Lord that remains "a statute forever.

" Day of Atonement is the day in which the people of Israel are to be judged by God and the sins of the nation of Israel are atoned.

The Day of Atonement is also referred to as "the Day of Redemption." This day pictures the transference of sin. It is a time of fasting, cleansing, and reflection which is to be observed once a year.

Yom Kippur is a day designed to bring Jews closer to God and encourages return to him through the process of Teshuvah. Though the Yom Kippur service was, during the times of the Temple, focused around the KohenGadol, today each individual focuses on himself and his personal Avodah, service to God.

The Day of Atonement in Bible Times

The high priest is entirely responsible for the Day of Atonement. He began

preparing for this day a week early. He stayed in the high priest chamber in the temple court and studied the laws of the Day of Atonement. It was very important the priest not make a mistake. An error could cost him his life and the nation of Israel's atonement. The high priest spoke a word this day that was unspeakable all other times. During the services he voiced the Holy name of God, YHVH or Yahveh ten times during the ceremony. When the people heard the Holy Name they fell on the ground in reverence.

The Day of Atonement in Bible Times

The interior of Solomon's Temple was rectangular, about 35 feet wide and140 feet long.

It was divided into three parts. The priest would have enteredthe porch, which was about 17 feet deep. He would then pass through gild-ed Cyprus doors decorated with flowers, palm trees, and cherubim, andenter the main room of the Temple—often called the Holy Place. Beyond aset of olive wood doors lay the room no ordinary priest would ever see. Thiswas the Holy of Holies. It was a perfect cube, with each side measuring nearly 35 feet. In it was the Ark, containing the two tablets of stone of the Ten Commandments (Guinness 1988).

The Day of Atonement in Bible Times

The Holy of Holies was entered only once a year, on the Day of Atonement,when the high priest made atonement for the people. This was the great solemn day that the high priest put aside his official robes and dressed in a simple white garment. To fulfill the law of the Bible, he wore eightgarments on this day (Lev. 8:7; Ex. 28:33-35).

1. The golden crown on his forehead. 2. The breastplate on his heart.3. The outer robe decorated with pomegranates and

bells (the people listened for the bells while thepriest was in the Holy of Holies to be sure thepriest was still alive).

4. The apron or vest.5. Four white garments made from white flax.6. The belt.7. The turban.8. Pants.

THE TWO GOATS (Vaiyikra 16:1-22)

After purifying the holy place and the altar of burnt offering with the min-gled blood of the bullock, the High Priest went to the eastern side of the court in front of the Temple. Facing him were two identical goats. Nearby was a lottery box especially designed for this ceremony. In the box were two tablets (lots).

One bore the name "For God," the other "For azazel" (the scapegoat).The high priest shook the box and withdrew the tablets, putting one tabletin front of each goat. The goat labeled "for God" was sacrificed. The priestlaid his hands upon the goat's head labeled "for azazel" and confessed overit the sins of Israel. The scapegoat symbolically bore the sins of the nation ofIsrael away from the people. This goat, commonly called the scapegoat (i.e.escape goat), was then driven into the desert.

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur


Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur10

The Day of Atonement in Bible Times

THE TWO GOATS (Vaiyikra 16:1-22) Azazel: The Scapegoat

The Hebrew word for scapegoat is azazel. Azazel was seen as a type of satan .The sins of the people and thus the punishment of the people were laid upon azazel the scapegoat. He would bear the sins of the people and the punishment of the people would be upon him. Azazel being sent into the wilderness is understood to be a picture of satan (Ha satan) being cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 19:20).

Let's take a closer look at this ceremony found in Leviticus (Vayikra) 16:7-10. In Leviticus (Vayikra) 16:8, the first lot said, "La Adonai" (To the Lord). The second lot said, "La Azazel" (To the scapegoat). The high priest (Cohen HaGadol) took the two golden lots, one marked La Adonai and the other marked La Azazel, and placed one upon the head of each animal, sealing their fate.

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur


Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur11

Messianic Understanding Matthew 25:31-46.

God gave this ceremony of the casting of lots during Yom Kippur to teach us how He will judge the nations of the world prior to the Messianic age known as the Millennium. The nations of the world will be judged according to how they followed Adonai. Those nations who mistreated the Jews will be goat nations and they will go into the left hand. Those nations that stood beside the Jewish people will be sheep nations and will enter into the Messianic kingdom or the Millennium. Yeshua taught us about this in Matthew 25:31-46.

Yeshua during His first coming was a type of the goat marked La Adonai. Yeshua was a sin offering to us as G-d laid upon Him the sins of the whole world (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 53:1-6; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Galatians 1:3-4; Hebrews 2:17; 1 John [Yochanan] 2:2; 4:10).

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur


Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur12

The Day of Atonement in Bible Times

Tradition states that a cord of red wool was tied on the horn of the scapegoat, before it was let go in the wilderness. When the red wool turned white, it was a sign that God forgave the people's sin. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isa. 1:18).

The Priests used to bind a shining crimson strip of cloth on the outside doorof the Temple. If the strip of cloth turned into the white color, they wouldrejoice; if it did not turn white they were full of sorrow and shame (TractateYoma 67a).

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur


Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur13

The Day of Atonement in Bible Times

In the ceremony of the two goats, the two goats were considered as one offering. A crimson sash was tied around the horns of the goat marked azazel. At the appropriate time, the goat was led to a steep cliff in the wilderness and shoved off the cliff. In connection with this ceremony, an interesting tradition arose that is mentioned in the Mishnah. A portion of the crimson sash was attached to the door of the temple (BeitHaMikdash) before the goat was sent into the wilderness. The sash would turn from red to white as the goat met its end, signaling to the people that G-d had accepted their sacrifices and their sins were forgiven. This was based upon Isaiah (Yeshayahu) 1:18. As stated earlier, the Mishnah tells us that 40 years before the destruction of the temple (BeitHaMikdash), the sash stopped turning white. This, of course, was when Yeshua was slain on the tree.

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur


Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur14

The Day of Atonement in Bible Times

Jewish literature explains the Shekhina glory of God left the Temple fortyyears prior to its destruction. Three signs occurred to show evidence of this:1.) The western candle of the menorah refused to burn continually. 2.) Thedoors of the Temple would open of themselves. 3.) The red wool no longerturned white supernaturally. This is especially significant because it indi-cated that God was no longer forgiving the sins of His people. The peoplewere sorrowful because they began to realize more and more that the sacri-fice of Yom Kippur did not have the power to cleanse their sinful hearts.That very year Jesus started His ministry, the very year that the blood ofbulls and goats was no longer accepted as a sacrifice for the atonement ofsin!

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur

Face to Face

The high priest (Cohen HaGadol) could only go into the Holy of Holies once a year (Leviticus [Vayikra] 16:2; Hebrews 9:6-7). (G-d issued a warning that no man could see His face and live (Exodus [Shemot] 33:20). But because on the Day of Atonement the priest could be in G-d's presence (Leviticus [Vayikra] 16:2), another term for the Day of Atonement is "face to face."

By the time of the second temple, this ritual [the high priest's (Cohen HaGadol) ceremony] had been somewhat elaborated, and one crucial element had been added to it. That element was that on three separate occasions, in a grand crescendo, the high priest appeared before the people, and three times he recited a formula of confession in their hearing. The first confession was on the account of his own sins and those of his household; the second, on the account of the priestly tribe of Levi; the third, on the account of the whole people.

Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur16

Face to Face

On this occasion only, in the entire year, the confession included the priest's saying aloud the name of God embodied in the Hebrew letters YHVH (called the Tetragrammaton). This was the name that God gave and explained to Moses (Moshe) at the burning bush, the name that was a kind of distillation of "I am Becoming Who I am Becoming," the name that was not a name in the sense of a label by which God could be called and controlled, and therefore the name that could not be said aloud. It was, therefore, all year long euphemized by saying, whenever YHVH appeared in the text, or invocation, Adonai, The Lord. Only on Yom Kippur was the name said, aloud, in all its original awesomeness.

Heb 3:1 Therefore, brothers whom God has set apart, who share in the call from heaven, think carefully about Yeshua, whom we acknowledge publicly as God's emissary and as cohen gadol.

Rather than wearing his usual robe and colorful garments (described in Exodus [Shemot] 28 and Leviticus [Vayikra] 8:1-8), Aaron was commanded to wear special garments of linen (Leviticus [Vayikra] 16:4). Yeshua was seen wearing the same thing in Revelation 1:13-15.

Rev 1:12 I turned around to see who was speaking to me; and when I had turned, I saw seven gold menorahs;

Rev 1:13 and among the menorahs was someone like a Son of Man, wearing a robe down to his feet and a gold band around his chest.

Rev 1:14 His head and hair were as white as snow-white wool, his eyes like a fiery flame,

Rev 1:15 his feet like burnished brass refined in a furnace, and his voice like the sound of rushing waters.

Daniel also saw this and described it in Daniel 10:5-6.

Dan 10:5 when I looked up, and there before me was a man dressed in linen wearing a belt made of fine Ufaz gold.

Dan 10:6 His body was like beryl, his face looked like lightning and his eyes like fiery torches; his arms and feet were the color of burnished bronze; and when he spoke, it sounded like the roar of a crowd.

Face to Face

(1 Corinthians 13:9-12).

Both verse 11 and the phrase in verse 12, "For now we see through a glass, darkly" come from the Jewish Midrash.

"Face to Face" is the title of a chapter in Arthur Waskow's book, Seasons of Our Joy, on the topic of Yom Kippur. "Face to face" is an idiom for Yom Kippur. Why? It was on Yom Kippur that the high priest had to go behind the veil of the temple. At that moment, the nation had to hold its breath because the nation's fate depended upon G-d's accepting the sacrifice. At that point, the high priest was "face to face with the mercy seat of G-d."

When the high priest (Cohen HaGadol) entered the Holy of Holies, he saw the L-rd's presence as a brilliant cloud hovering above the mercy seat (Leviticus [Vayikra] 16:2). The word for mercy seat in Hebrew is kapporet. It comes from the root word kaphar, which is the same word used for "atonement." The mercy seat can also be translated as the seat of atonement. The mercy seat is described in detail in Exodus (Shemot) 25:17-22 and 37:6-9. This is the place where Moses (Moshe) met and spoke with G-d face to face (Exodus [Shemot] 25:22; 30:6; Numbers [Bamidbar] 7:89).

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur

Face to Face

Therefore, when the high priest stood before God on this day, he was said to be "face to face" with God. Because of this, Yom Kippur became known by the phrase "face to face." "Face to face" terminology was used in First Corinthians 13:9-12, as it is written:

1Co 13:9 For our knowledge is partial, and our prophecy partial;

1Co 13:10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass.

1Co 13:11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, argued like a child; now that I have become a man, I have finished with childish ways.

1Co 13:12 For now we see obscurely in a mirror, but then it will be face to face. Now I know partly; then I will know fully, just as God has fully known me.

Both verse 11 and the phrase in verse 12, "For now we see through a glass, darkly" come from the Jewish Midrash.

The Day

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, comes on the tenth day of the 7th month (Tishrei-September/October). It is the last day of the Ten Days of Repentance, and it is the most solemn day of the Jewish calendar. It is believed that those who have not been good enough to be written in the Book of Life immediately on Yom Teruah are given ten days to repent, pray for forgiveness, and do good deeds until Yom Kippur, when their fate will be decided. The entire Day of Forgiveness (Yom Kippur) is spent fasting and praying. Because this day is the most solemn day in the year, it is known as "The Day."

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur


Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur22

The Fast

Fasting is one of the most important of the mitzvot (commandments) leading to atonement. The Torah says three times, "And this shall be to you a law for all times: In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month you shall practice self-denial" (Leviticus [Vayikra] 16:29; 23:27; Numbers [Bamidbar] 29:7); tradition (the Jewish understanding) interprets self-denial as fasting. For this reason, Yom Kippur is known as "The Fast Day."

Spiritual Understanding of the Day of Atonement

The Day of Atonement was the most solemn of all the feast days. It was the day of cleansing for the nation and for the sanctuary. On this day alone, once a year, the high priest entered into the holiest of all, the Holy of Holies in the temple, within the veil of the temple, with the blood of the Lord's goat, the sin offering. Here he sprinkled the blood on the mercy seat. The blood of the sin offering on the great Day of Atonement brought about the cleansing of all sin for the priesthood, the sanctuary, and Israel as a nation (Leviticus [Vayikra] 16:29-34).

The Day of Atonement

Yom Kippur is a day of fasting and affliction of the soul (Leviticus [Vayikra] 23:27,29; Numbers [Bamidbar] 29:7). This day was set aside as a day of national fasting. Fasting is mentioned in Joel (Yoel) 1:14-15; 2:12-18; and Ezra 8:21. The spiritual understanding for us is given in Isaiah 58:1-12.

It is the tenth day of the seventh month (Leviticus [Vayikra] 23:27; Numbers [Bamidbar] 29:7). The number 10 is used to represent the government or a nation (Daniel 7:24; Revelation 17:12). To the Jewish people, the number ten represents a legal congregation known as a minyan. The congregation is one body that can represent a group. So, the number ten represented the nation or the congregation of Israel (Leviticus [Vayikra] 16:2-3,17,19). Notice also that the blood is sprinkled for the nation (Leviticus [Vayikra] 16:19). Look at Isaiah (Yeshayahu) 52:13-15 and Ezekiel (Yechezekel) 36:24-26.

In Isaiah (Yeshayahu) 52:13-15, the suffering servant, Yeshua, Messiah ben Joseph (Yosef) is seen sprinkling many nations. In Ezekiel 36:24-26, it is the Jews returning to Israel from the Diaspora whom God will sprinkle clean water upon when they return back to the land of Israel.

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur

Life for a Life

The biblical name for the day of Atonement is Yom HaKippur, meaning "the day of covering, canceling, pardon, reconciling." Occasionally, it was called "the Day of the Fast" or "the Great Fast" (Leviticus [Vayikra] 23:27-31; 16:29-34).

God told the Israelites to sacrifice an animal as a substitute for their own sentence to die. This life for a life principle is the foundation of the sacrificial system. The Torah allows a monetary ransom be paid for an individual deserving death (Exodus [Shemot] 21:28-32). The guilty person here was the owner of an ox that had killed a person, and the owner of the ox was responsible for the death caused by his ox (Exodus 21:30 says that money paid in place of the death of the owner was a ransom price).

Messianic Fulfillment. Yeshua died on the tree as a substitute for us, who deserved death because we sinned against God. Yeshua paid the ransom price for us to G-d (Mark 10:45; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 1 Corinthians 6:20; 7:23). The ransom price was 30 pieces of silver (Exodus [Shemot] 21:32; Matthew [Mattityahu] 26:14-16; 27:3-6).

Adonai’s Fall Holy Days-Yom Kippur


Adonai s fall holy days yom kippur27

Thirty pieces of silver was the ransom price of blood in dying in the place of the truly guilty and making atonement for the guilty. In the case of a thief or murderer, there is no atonement for them (Exodus 22:1-2; Numbers 35:31). This is why there is no atonement for satan (Ha satan) (John 8:44). Thirty pieces of silver was the ransom price of blood and the shedding of blood made an atonement for sin (Leviticus 17:11; Romans 5:8-11). The Greek word hilasmos, translated as "propitiation," has the same meaning as the Hebrew word kaphar, which is translated as "atonement" (Romans 3:23-25; 1 John 2:2; 4:9-10). The purpose of the Day of Atonement was to teach us about Yeshua, who is our atonement (Hebrews 10:1-10).

Yeshua's Second Coming and Yom Kippur

If you examine the Scriptures concerning the second coming of Yeshua back to earth, when He will set His foot upon the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4), you will find that it uses Yom Kippur terminology. Here are a few examples.

The first example is in Isaiah (Yeshayahu) 52:13-15. First, let us examine Isaiah 52:13-14 so we can identify that this is referring to Yeshua the Messiah. Then, we will look at Isaiah 52:15.

In Isaiah (Yeshayahu) 52:13-14 it is written:

Behold, My servant shall deal prudently [the servant refers to the Messiah], He shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. [The New Covenant (Brit Hadashah) references to this include Acts 2:32-35; 5:30-31; and Philippians 2:9-11.] As many were astonied at thee; His visage was so marred more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 52:13-14).

Yeshua's Second Coming and Yom Kippur

In Isaiah (Yeshayahu) 52:15 it is written:

"So shall He sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at Him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider."

The phrase, "So shall He sprinkle many nations" is a reference to the sprinkling of the blood on the mercy seat of God by the high priest during Yom Kippur (Leviticus 16:14). This is also referred to in Leviticus 1:5,11; 3:2,8,13; 4:6,17; 7:2.

Joh 7:37 Now on the last day of the festival, HoshanaRabbah, Yeshua stood and cried out, "If anyone is thirsty, let him keep coming to me and drinking!

Joh 7:38 Whoever puts his trust in me, as the Scripture says, rivers of living water will flow from his inmost being!"

Rivers of Living Water is the theme of songs, sermons and

even entire ministries and their conferences. But most

folks miss a very important message that is staring at them

from the page of this very Jewish book. Let’s go back to the

opening statement of this passage. “Now on the last day,

the great day of the feast..” What day of what feast? In order to fully understand Yehovah’s anointed word, you must understand Yehovah’s Moadim appointed times.

Sukkot, usually translated as "Tabernacles," or the festival of "Booths," occurs for seven days, from Tishrei 15 to 21. There is therefore a quick transition from the high holidays, with their somber mood of repentance and judgment, to a holiday of rejoicing and celebration, for which the people are commanded to build a hut [sukkah; plural, sukkot) and make it their home. The Torah identifies the sukkah (booth) with the temporary dwellings in which the Israelites lived in the wilderness after they left Egypt on their way to the Promised Land (Leviticus [Vayikra] 23:42).

Lev 23:43 so that generation after generation of you will know that I made the people of Isra'el live in sukkot when I brought them out of the land of Egypt; I am Adonai your God.' "

From Yom Kippur to Sukkot

Not coincidentally, the same time period marks the beginning of the construction of G-d'ssukkah, the mishkan, the sanctuary in the desert (Exodus [Shemot] 25:8-9). In Exodus 25:9, the word tabernacle is the word mishkan in Hebrew.

Material for this portable structure was collected during the days before Sukkot, and work was begun on it (the mishkan or tabernacle) (Exodus [Shemot] 35; 36:1-7).

Why was the mishkan built? The Torah says, "Let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them" (Exodus [Shemot] 25:8); to establish the relationship between God and Israel, God would dwell amidst the people. Therefore the mishkan, the tabernacle in the wilderness, was instructed to be built by God for Him so He could dwell with His people.

Understanding Sukkot: The Feast of Tabernacles

The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) completes the sacred festivals of the seventh month. In contrast to the somber tone of Yom Teruah/Trumpets and the Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement, the third feast of Tishrei was a time of joy. Israel had passed through the season of repentance and redemption.

Sukkot is called the "Season of Our Joy." One reason Sukkot was a time of joy was that after the season of repentance (Teshuvah) and the redemption of Yom Kippur came the joy of knowing your sins were forgiven and the joy of walking with God, knowing God, and being obedient to God. The Hebrew word chag comes from the Hebrew root word chagag, which means "to move in a circle, to march in a sacred procession, to celebrate or dance." The joy of Sukkot was so great that it became known as "The Feast." In non-Jewish circles, Sukkot is known as the Feast of Tabernacles.

  • Understanding the Meaning of Booths/Tabernacles

  • The Hebrew word for tabernacle is sukkah. It means "a booth, a hut, a covering, a pavilion or tent." The Greek word for tabernacle is sk'en'e, which also means "a tent, hut, or habitation."

  • With this in mind, let's look at the context by which the word tabernacle is used in the New Covenant (Brit Hadashah).

  • Yeshuatabernacled (sukkot) among us, (John [Yochanan] 1:14).

  • Peter (Kefa) spoke about his body being a tabernacle (2 Peter [Kefa] 1:13-14).

  • The apostle Paul (Rav Sha'ul) told us that our earthly bodies were earthly houses or tabernacles (2 Corinthians 5:1-5).

  • The tabernacle of Moses (Moshe) was a tent of habitation (Acts 7:44; Hebrews 9:2-8).

  • Abraham (Avraham), Isaac (Yitzchak), and Jacob (Ya'akov) lived in tabernacles (tents) (Hebrews 11:8-9).

  • The tabernacle of David was a tent or dwelling place (Acts 15:16; Amos 9:11). This tabernacle was the temple of Solomon (1 Kings [Melachim] 5:2-5; 8:1-21).

  • Yeshua entered the temple on the Feast of Sukkot (Tabernacles) (John [Yochanan] 7:2,27-29).

  • The Bible speaks of a heavenly tabernacle (Hebrews 8:1-2; Revelation 13:6; 15:5). This heavenly tabernacle will come to earth (Revelation 21:1-3).

  • Yeshua was the true tabernacle of God (Hebrews 9:11).

The Festival of Ingathering

Sukkot (Tabernacles) is the fall harvest festival. It begins on the fifteenth of the Hebrew month of Tishrei and concludes on the twenty-second with SheminiAtzeret/Simchat Torah, also called the eighth day, the rejoicing in the Torah. SheminiAtzeret functions as the conclusion of Sukkot, but it is also a separate festival (this will be discussed in the following chapter).

Like the other pilgrimage festivals, Sukkot [tabernacles] has an agricultural element. It marks the time of the harvest, the final ingathering of produce before the oncoming winter. Hence, it is also called Hag HaAsif, the festival of Ingathering. As it is written, "You shall celebrate the Festival of In-gathering, at the end of the year, when you gather in your labors out of the field" (Exodus [Shemot] 23:16).

Sukkot is the time when the produce of the field, orchard, and vineyard is gathered in. The granaries, threshing floors, and wine and olive presses are full to capacity. Weeks and months of toil and sweat put into the soil have finally been amply rewarded. The farmer feels happy and elated. No wonder Sukkot is "The Season of Rejoicing." While all of the three pilgrimages are times of rejoicing, Sukkot (Tabernacles) is specifically designated as Zemansimchatenu, the season of our rejoicing.
