Yom Kippur - Day of atONEment

Yom Kippur is one of the Highest Holiest Days of the Jewish feasts, we know it as the "Day of Atonement," the ONLY day the High Priest could go behind the veil into the presence of God making intercession for the sins of  the people!  The days between "Rosh shannah" (the Feast of Trumpets / awakening conciouses towards God) and Yom Kippur, people were to examine themselves and get right with God! read more: Learn more about "Yom Kippur -Day of Atonement 

This is not just a Jewish thing, but Christians as well should know more about this day, IT IS BECAUSE OF JESUS that the veil was torn in two and we can come into the presence of a Holy God, we no longer need to sacrifice the blood of a lamb, but we do need still from time to time examine ourselves (2 Cor 13:5) whether we are in "the Faith" - bowing, surrendering to God, living godly in this present world, being fruitful, growing in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus, rooted and grounded in the Love of God, building upon the right foundation, etc!!!!
