Day of Atonement, 2022 Satan Removed

Day of Atonement, 2022 Satan Removed;

Atonement or At-One-Ment with God, being in step with Lord Jesus.  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.

Atonement or Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year {a day of fasting} was also the intense and dramatic day of the year in the Holy Temple, where the High Priest is allowed to go into the Holy of Holies to performed the service of Atonement on behalf of the entire nation of Israel.

Atonement period is a time of reflection in our lives, turning our lives around in certain parts of what we do, a repentance of things in our lives, a realignment, recommitment, and redirection towards God.  Atonement exists for one reason only; God loves us, you and me.

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

The Holy Scriptures reveal that Satan and his demons, being invisible, rule the governments of the earth today.

Satan is called 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.  But Jesus tells us Satan days are number.

Satan has been in rebellion from a long time ago. 

Isaiah 14:12-15 “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! (13) For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north;

(14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.’ (15) Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.

Satan is the prince of the power of the air and will be replaced by our Lord and 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. 

Ephesians 6:12  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

The Bible mentions three worlds or ages we have had: 

  1. the world that then was that perished in a worldwide flood

2 Peter 3:6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.

  1. this present evil world

Galatians 1:4 who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,

  1. the world to come: the world tomorrow, 1000 years Rule of Jesus. 

Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

In the world tomorrow, the devil and his demons will no longer influence earth’s nations, its societies and religions.  Except at the end of the millennium

This day then pictures Christ replaced 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.

Job 1:6-7 One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them.  (7)  The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.” 

Matthew 4:8-9 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. (9) And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”

Notice, Jesus did not disagree with the devil. And have already has already overcome the Devil and qualified to replace him. 

John 12:31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.

John 14:30 I will not talk with you much longer, because the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me. 

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,

2 Corinthians 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 

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 Christ is coming as King of Kings and Lord of Lords to take over the governments of this world with His Holy Saints and to remove, replace 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 20:1-3 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.  (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.  This is why Satan is trying to devour Saints.   

1 Peter 5:8 Be clear-minded and alert. Your opponent, the devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

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.

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?     {this is what we will be doing}

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.

But, what is fasting, denying ourselves food and water for 24 hours, from sunset to sunset.  This is the only command “fast” Jesus gives us.  When we fast, our bodies will cry for food and our spirit will have the sincere desire to obey God.  Remember your health.  If you need to take meds, take them. 

The Feast of the Lord

Leviticus 23:2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘The feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.

Chapter 23 list all of Jesus Feast and we are to observe them today.

A commanded assembly on this Day of Atonement, we are told to afflict ourselves is on of Jesus Feast Days.

Leviticus 23:26-29 The LORD spoke to Moses,  (27)  “However, on the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It’s a sacred assembly for you. Humble yourselves {means fasting} and bring an offering made by fire to the LORD. (28)  “You are not to do any work that same day. It’s the Day of Atonement, because your atonement is made in the presence of the LORD your God. (29)  Anyone who doesn’t humble himself that same day is to be eliminated from contact with his people. 

Leviticus 23:30-32 I’ll eliminate anyone who does work that day from among his people. (31)  You are not to do any work. This is to be an eternal ordinance throughout your generations wherever you live. (32)  It’s a Sabbath of rest for you, on which you are to humble yourselves starting the evening of the ninth day of the month. You are to observe your Sabbath from evening to evening.”

Humble or afflict, just means to fast, to beat down, depress, chasten.

Psalms 35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, My clothing was sackcloth; I humbled myself with fasting; And my prayer would return to my own heart.

How are we to fast 

What does Jesus our Lord give us instruction when we fast

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.

Atonement just means to set “at one.”  This means that God and man to form as one by uniting with the Holy Spirit and this can only be done until Satan is removed, we are change at Jesus coming to the earth and the whole world has repented.  We will be there to help those who are still alive.

What about the New Testament Church, did they observed the Day of Atonement. 

Acts 27:9 Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them,

The word “fast” refers to the Day of Atonement.  Luke wrote this section of the Book of Acts over 30 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus.  Luke would never mention “the fast” unless he and all the church been observing the day.  Remember, the Holy Spirit inspired these words in the Book of Acts. 

We know the early New Testament Church of God is our example for today, which are following the example given us. 

1 Thessalonians 2:14 For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, just as they did from the Judeans, 

But as we grow in the knowledge of the teachings of Jesus, we do begin to understand why we observe the feast days.  When we do understand the meaning of Jesus Appointed times, these feast days, they become more meaningful, yes that includes the Day of Atonement.       

2 Peter 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen

The Day of Atonement celebrates the time when Satan will be banished, prevented from influencing mankind, and the nations will at last come to accept Christ and His atoning sacrifice.

When we fast on the Day of Atonement it pictures to us the time and condition when we will no longer need to eat.  We will be changed to Spirit Bodies and will be Kings and Priests of the Most High God and not required food or water, but we can if we want to.  We will be like Jesus as He is.  This day should be a time of great rejoicing.

It is significant that we celebrated the Feast of Trumpets 10 days ago, representing the return to the earth of our Lord and King, His 2nd coming

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

Remember this about our Lord and Creator

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!

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

Let us enjoy this coming Feast of Tabernacles and the Great Last Day.
