Day of Atonement 2021

Day of Atonement 2021

We are here to celebrate the Day of Atonement, which comes 10 days after the Feast of Trumpets, on the 10th of Tishri and 5 days before the Feast of Tabernacles.

  • Satan is the god of this world right now and has directed the nations for the last 6000 years.
  • Satan has influenced leaders and inspired World Wars and cause misery, death and suffering from the time of Adam and Eve.
  • Jesus tells us Satan days are number.
  • Satan is the prince of the power of the air and will be replaced by our Lord Jesus and our King,
  • Jesus at His coming at the start of the Millennium.
  • Yes, Satan’s days are numbered and the Day of Atonement looks forward to this event.
  • When Satan is removed, he cannot longer broadcast his moods and evil, rebellious attitudes. This is the difference between people today and people after Lord Jesus returns
  • This day then pictures Lord Jesus replacing Satan as world ruler and removing him to a place completely away and apart from mankind.
  • Satan will be bound and locked up, no longer able to deceive the nations for 1000 years.

Ephesians 2:2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

Revelation 12:9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

  • Jesus the Messiah has already overcome the Devil and qualified to replace him when He returns to the earth.
  • Jesus Christ is coming as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to take over the governments of this world and remove and restrain Satan.

The Day of Atonement reveals what will happen to Satan and his demons, because this part of the message is unique to the 5th High Day of Jesus plan.

Revelation 20:1-2 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding the key to the bottomless pit, with a large chain in his hand.  (2)  He captured the dragon, that ancient serpent, also known as the devil and Satan, and tied him up for a thousand years.  {the millennium}

Revelation 20:3 He threw him into the bottomless pit, locked it, and sealed it over him to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were over. After that he must be set free for a little while.

Revelation 18:2 He cried out in a powerful voice, “Fallen! Babylon the Great has fallen! She has become a home for demons. She is a prison for every unclean spirit, a prison for every unclean bird, and a prison for every unclean and hated beast.

  • What does that mean for us, followers of our Lord Jesus.
  • When Satan and his demons are removed from office, they must be replaced by qualified rulers.
  • We know Satan will be replaced by Jesus and we, His Saints, will replace the demons rule the world.

The Apostle Paul predict the end of world rule by fallen angels

Hebrews 2:5 For he did not put the coming world we are talking about under the control of angels.   {not under control of angels, but Saints}

Again, the Apostle Paul explains who will replace the demons as rulers over the world?  

Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, be with all of you!

1 Corinthians 6:2-3 You know that the saints will rule the world, don’t you? And if the world is going to be ruled by you, can’t you handle insignificant cases?  (3)  You know that we will rule angels, not to mention things in this life, don’t you?

  • Only by the power of the Holy Spirit will we be able to rule under Jesus, this is the message of the Day of Atonement.
  • We need to become at one with God. At-One-Ment with God.

How are we to do this, by fasting, humbling ourselves, to draw closer to God and to see ourselves as we are and to see God as He is, our salvation.

Day of Atonement Chapter, Leviticus 16

Leviticus 16:33-34 then he shall make atonement for the Holy Sanctuary, and he shall make atonement for the tabernacle of meeting and for the altar, and he shall make atonement for the priests and for all the people of the assembly.  (34)  This shall be an everlasting statute for you, to make atonement for the children of Israel, for all their sins, once a year.” And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.

What does this remind us of. 

Passover Service; for the Saints, Bride of Lord Jesus:

1 Corinthians 15:1-2 Now I’m making known to you, brothers, the gospel that I proclaimed to you, which you accepted, on which you have taken your stand,  (2)  and by which you are also being saved if you hold firmly to the message I proclaimed to you, unless, of course, your faith was worthless. 

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I passed on to you the most important points that I received:

The Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 

(4) he was buried,

he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures:

and is still alive! 

Isaiah 53:5 But he {Jesus} was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

1 Corinthians 11:28 A person must examine himself and then eat the bread and drink from the cup, {how are we living, following the Way of Life}

Romans 3:25-26 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood, to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished (26) he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.

Remember, when we saw Satan was block to go after the Nation of Israel, then it went after the Saints at the big battle.

Revelation 12:17 Then the dragon {Satan} was enraged at the woman {Israel} and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring: those {the Body, Saints} who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

Think on this, is just one little proof we should observe the Feast Days.

Leviticus 23:27 “Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.

Afflict just means to fast on this day. 

Matthew 6:16 “Whenever you fast, don’t be gloomy like the hypocrites, because they put on sad faces to show others they are fasting. I tell you with certainty, they have their full reward!

Matthew 6:17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,  (18)  so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Leviticus 23:32 It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath.”

On the Day of Atonement, the people were instructed to “afflict their souls.” In other words, they were to examine themselves and repent of wrong and sinful attitudes and behavior.

New Testament church celebrated the Day of Atonement

Acts 27:9 Much time had been lost, and sailing had already become dangerous because by now it was after the Day of Atonement. So Paul warned them,

John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Psalms 49:7-8 No man can redeem the life of another, nor can he give to God a sufficient payment for him (8) for it would cost too much to redeem his life, and the payments would go on forever

Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” 

Hebrews 10:2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. 

Hebrews 10:3-6 Instead, through those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year after year, (4)  for it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.  (5)  For this reason, the Scriptures say, when the Messiah was about to come into the world: “You did not want sacrifices and offerings, but you prepared a body for me (6)  In burnt offerings and sin offerings you never took delight {sacrifices on the altar}

The Year of Jubilee happens on the Day of Atonement, How did it start. 

The land was to be divided by lot among the families of the Israelites when the possession of it was obtained. Num 33:54, etc.

At the end of every seventh sabbatical cycle of years, in the year of Jubilee, each field or estate that might have been alienated was to be restored to the family to which it had been originally allotted.

If an Israelite fell on hard times, he might be forced, in effect, to lease his land, probably his creditor, but only until the Jubilee year, when all debts were to be forgiven.

This allows every Israelite family to begin again about once a generation, regardless of what had happened in the past.

Leviticus 25:8 Count for yourselves seven years of Sabbaths, seven times seven years. This set of seven weeks of years total forty nine years for you. 

Leviticus 25:9 Sound a horn on the tenth day of the seventh month of this fiftieth year. Likewise on the Day of Atonement sound the horn throughout your land. 

Leviticus 25:10 Set aside and consecrate the fiftieth year to declare liberty throughout the land for all of its inhabitants. It is to be a jubilee for you. Every person is to return to his own land that he has inherited. “Likewise, every person is to return to his clan.

Leviticus 25:11 The fiftieth year is to be a year of jubilee for you. You are not to sow or harvest the spilled kernels that grow of itself or pick grapes from the untrimmed vines

Leviticus 25:12 because it’s jubilee. It’s sacred for you. But you may eat its produce from the field.

Leviticus 25:13 During this year of jubilee, each person is to return to his own land that he has inherited

Isaiah 61:1-2 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;  (2)  To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn,

The year of jubilee on which, liberty was proclaimed to the captives, US?

2 Corinthians 6:2 For He says: “in an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the Day of Salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Luke 4:17-18 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:  (18)  “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; 

Luke 4:19-21 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”  (20)  Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.  (21)  And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” 

Now, let’s compare Leviticus and Revelations and see a Divine appointment happening and it is the Yom Kippur service!  This event will happen some year on Atonement.

Leviticus 16:12-13 Then he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from the altar before the LORD, with his hands full of sweet incense beaten fine, and bring it inside the veil.  (13)  And he shall put the incense on the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of incense may cover the mercy seat that is on the Testimony, lest he die.

Censer, sweet incense

Psalms 141:2 Let my prayer be set before You as incense, The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

Revelation 6:9-10 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.  (10)  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”

Revelation 8:3-5 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.  (4)  And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.  (5)  Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.

Remember on this day, we celebrate the Day of Atonement, representing the removal of Satan and his demons and restoring all things, we the Saints will become at one with God and become rulers of the world under our Lord King during the millennium and in 5 days,

We will be rejoicing during the Feast of Tabernacles, which represents the Kingdom of God during the Millennium and then the Last Great Day, the 8th Day, which represents the great resurrection of all who lived in the past and will live in the future.
