God is all about Unity! Unity with Him and unity with each other. You may not know that God assigned one of the Holiest days of the year to picture unity among those that love and follow Him …that’s how important it is!
Yom Kippur, also know as the Day of Atonement, was a requirement for the Jewish People to celebrate. We may think that because we aren’t Jewish or the Temple is no longer standing… or because Jesus made the full sacrifice for once for all, that it is irrelevant, but you would very wrong. God, in His mercy and creativity, hides deeper attributes of Himself in every Feast including this one and ALL Believers will be blessed by knowing this Feast and it’s qualities.
If you don’t believe me…or want to know it better for yourself, here are just a few verses to get you started:
The Feast is found:Leviticus 23:26-32 & 16:8
About Israel’s redemption:Romans11:26& Revelation 14
About Jesus as High priest: Hebrews 13:17 & 5; James 3:13-18; Luke 23:44-46
About Unity: Ephesians 4:1-7; Romans 16:17
