Msg #2037 Yom Kippur

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

This year Yom Kippur is on Monday the 28th of September. It is the Day of Atonement, the tenth day of the seventh Biblical Hebrew month, the holiest day of the year in Judaism. “Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, ... Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. ... For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people” (Lev23:24, 27, 29). The theme of the day is repentance with a quest for atonement for personal and national sins as traditionally the fate of each person is sealed for the upcoming year. Jews observe this holy day with a twenty-four hour period of fasting (afflicting your soul) and intensive prayer. “And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all” (Lev16:29).

This year on Yom Kippur, just five weeks before election day on the eve of the presidential election debate, it would behoove every Christian in the United States of America to take up the theme of repentance with a quest for atonement for personal and national sins, and make this holy day a twenty-four hour period of fasting, intensive prayer, and even sackcloth and ashes. The fate of each person is about to be sealed for the upcoming four years. Bible Christians must oppose socialism.
