Will You bear away Your people’s iniquity,
Will You pardon all their sin? Selah Psalm 85:3, TLV
Tonight is Erev Yom Kippur (Evening of the Day of Atonement). Considered the holiest day in the Biblical calendar (Leviticus 23:26-32) and in Jewish tradition. Tonight, around the world, believers in the Jewish Messiah will humbly acknowledge the greatest sacrifice of all. And in gratitude and humility fast for those who yet understand.
In today’s verse, the sons of Korah’s questions were asked. And we can answer, Yes! Our Heavenly Father ensured that our sins would be taken away and pardoned. Because He sent His Son as the ultimate and final sacrifice (John 3:16).
[Yeshua] entered into the Holies once for all—not by the blood of goats and calves but by His own blood, having obtained eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:12, TLV
Whether you and your family celebrate this holy day or not, perhaps take time today to reflect on the awesomeness of Jesus’s sacrifice for us. Maybe even take a fast of a meal, or no television or sweets. Then, pray for those you know and love who have yet come to that saving knowledge of the Messiah Yeshua.
