CLEANSING OF YOUR SOUL – BOOK OF LIFE – DAY OF ATONEMENT

color shofar - Shofar Blast by Yitzchok Moully

Did you know you are a letter of Christ; and that letter of Christ (which you are) can also be called a Book of Life? Did you also know that believers get a brand-new marker placed in their Book of Life (their scroll) during the Day of Atonement? Your new bookmark has to do with the cleansing of your soul.

The Feast of Passover marks the day of our personal atonement when the perfect Lamb of God was sacrificed in our place (Hebrews 4:16; Hebrews 6:13-20; Hebrews 10:19-22; Hebrews 12:24). The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is the day of cleansing for God’s nation and for His sanctuary. Or in other words, today the Day of Atonement is all about corporate atonement for the Body of Christ as well as the cleansing of our own personal souls.

If we believe that Scripture is the inspired Word of God, we need to consider that the Day of Atonement is a permanent statute (i.e., it never goes away): “For it is on this day that atonement shall be made for you to cleanse you; and you shall be clean from all your sins before the Lord. It is to be a sabbath of solemn rest for you, THAT YOU MAY HUMBLE YOUR SOULS; IT IS A PERMANENT STATUTE” (Leviticus 16:30-31).

According to Scripture, forty days of preparation (40 days of repentance – teshuvah) are supposed to lead up the Day of Atonement. The final ten days of the 40-days of teshuvah are known as the High Holy Days and as the Awesome Days. (i.e., The Days of Awe). These 40-days of teshuvah are a period of consecrated time when we reflect on our walk with God and condition of our heart.

There is still great significance to the Day of Atonement, even after we accept that Jesus Christ died for our sins and our Heavenly Father rose Him from the dead. Our souls are complex. Ask any psychiatrist. There are multiple dimensions within each one of us. If you and I fulfill the Day of Atonement picture once a year, we will consecrate or cleanse more and more dimensions of our soul until one day we become exactly like the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek.

Know that the Head of the Body of Christ – Yeshua – completely fulfilled the Day of Atonement as detailed in Hebrew chapters 9-10. If we are the Body… If we want to walk like Jesus, talk like Jesus, and be just like Jesus, we will actually fulfill the audio-visual pictures portrayed in this feast too.

One of the pictures portrayed in Yom Kippur is that once a year the High Priest was face to face with the mercy seat of God. The mercy seat can also be translated as the seat of atonement. This is the place where Moses met God and spoke with Him face to face: “And when Moses was gone into the Tabernacle of the Congregation to speak with Him, then he heard the Voice of One speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the Ark of Testimony, from between the two cherubim; and he spake unto him” (Numbers 7:89). Do you want to hear the “Voice of One” speaking to you from off the mercy seat? Your soul will have to come face to face with the hottest blue flame that sits above the Mercy Seat.

Unlike other days, the High Priest had to bath his entire body before going into the Holy of Holies. Other occasions only required that he wash his hands and feet. Why the greater cleansing? For the first earthly High Priest – Aaron – this meant he had to be absolutely clean in order to make atonement on behalf of the people. For Yeshua, it meant that He was absolutely clean, perfect, and without sin when He made atonement by sacrificing His Body on a tree. For believers in Yeshua, it means that we are washed by the regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit as well as washed by the water of the Word of God, as we humbly approach God (Ephesians 5:26-27; Titus 3:5).

I see this as being sanctified entirely – body, soul and spirit: “Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:23 NASB).

This is confirmed by the various “threes” portrayed in Yom Kippur.

• Scripture says three times: “And this shall be to you a law for all times: In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month you shall practice self-denial” (Leviticus 16:29; Leviticus 23:27; Numbers 29:7).

• On the Day of Atonement, the High Priest appeared before the people three times and recited a confession before them. The first confession the people heard was for the High Priest’s own sins and those of his household. The second confession was for the priestly Tribe of Levi (i.e. the priesthood of God). The third confession was for the sins of all the people.

• The High Priest publically recited God’s Most Holy Name – YHVH – three times only on this day.

• During each confession, when the High Priest reached the recitation of the Name, all the people present would prostrate themselves and say out loud: “Baruch shem K’vod malchuto l’olam va’ed,” which means “Blessed be the Name of the radiance of the Kingship, forever and beyond.”

• The High Priest entered the Holy of Holies three times on the Day of Atonement. BTW – He had to be literally transformed to be the same frequency as the veil to enter into the Holy of Holies, because there was no door.

The triple entry into the Holy of Holies, triple recitation of The Name, and the triple prostration of all of the people permitted God’s people to begin afresh. Within is the seed for the restoration of all things when the Mature Head of Christ is attached to His Mature Body. All who are joined in Christ by the perfect bond of love will literally live and move and have their being in the One who was slain before the foundation of the world.

Jews believe that the Gates of Heaven are open during the Days of Teshuvah to receive the prayers for forgiveness and repentance, then they close after the final service of Yom Kippur. You will commonly hear that the Gates of Heaven are open on the Feast of Trumpets to let the righteous into heaven, and they remain open until the neilah (closing) service of Yom Kippur.

Since Yeshua’s death, burial and resurrection, the Gates of Heaven are always open to receive prayers of forgiveness and repentance; but do not minimize the importance of this Awesome Day. There is a special grace available to all of God’s people for one day a year. There is a special grace on the Day of Atonement that allows humble people to progressively cleanse of their soul with the ultimate purpose of creating a Bridal Soul within you and me.This is the preeminent goal of all offerings by fire:

“On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is THE DAY OF ATONEMENT; IT SHALL BE A HOLY CONVOCATION FOR YOU, AND YOU SHALL HUMBLE YOUR SOULS AND PRESENT AN OFFERING BY FIRE TO THE LORD” (Leviticus 23:27 NASB).

“It is to be a SABBATH OF COMPLETE REST TO YOU, and you shall HUMBLE YOUR SOULS; on the ninth of the month at evening, from evening until evening you shall keep your sabbath” (Leviticus 23:32 NASB).

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30 NASB). 

Hear the Great Trump!

Let a new and more perfect bookmark be inscribed on Your Book of Life. Let us all press on toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14). Let there be a greater cleansing for the pure and spotless Bride of Christ.

THE DOOR OF THE TABERNACLE OF THE CONGREGATION #7 – GROUP ASCENSION

Door - Heavenly 2

Our sixth investigation into “The Door of the Tabernacle of the Congregation” in Scripture is all about the corporate ascension space and place of the Elevation Offering where the Blood of the Lamb speaks, cleanses and makes a way for relationship with God beyond the Veil.

To minimize or undercut the truth in God’s Word about priests, altars and sacrifices is to undermine the sacrifice of Yeshua (Jesus), as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. These are important basic instructions for our faith that are usually not taught due to the institutional church’s tendency to white-wash things. According to the first five books of the Bible, it is blasphemy when you take something that is holy and render it unholy. We can’t go around saying the whole system has been done away with, because it is very much with us today. We have confidence and hope that the sacrifice of Yeshua on the Cross is able to cover over sins before the Living God due to the commandments about priests and sacrifices and altars.

When Yeshua came to do His sacrifice, as the Lamb of God Sacrifice, He did not change any of the other offerings, or do away with them. He fulfilled them: “ 17 Think not that I AM come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I AM not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 18 For verily [truly] I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:17-18 KJV).

YOM TERUAH OR ROSH HA SHANA? BIBLE OR BABYLON?

Trumpet Glory

The trumps are blowing and the KING of Kings is crowned even more so in our lives. One day – perhaps today – the Messiah will return at the Last Trump! Let’s ride on the wind of the sound of His voice!

Did you know that Yom Teruah – the Feast of Trumpets – is in Scripture (Leviticus 23:23-35; Numbers 29: 4-13), but the Jewish New Years – Rosh Ha Shanah – celebrated in the seventh month is not? There is only one mention of Rosh Ha Shanah in Scripture. It is found in Ezekiel 40:1 when Ezekiel honored and spoke of God’S New Year… the first of Aviv. Please allow me to emphasize that last point: Scripture’s only mention of Rosh Ha Shanah corresponds to the only New Year that God set up in Scripture, the first of Aviv in March/April.

Not until 200 AD (170 years after our Messiah rose) did Rosh Ha Shanah come about to replace Yom Teruah in the Mishnah, which later got incorporated into the Talmud… and believe you me, you don’t want any part of the Talmud! There are some disgusting things in the Talmud, for instance it exonerates pedophilia against little girls over 3-yrs-old.

Having a New Year celebrated in the seventh month of the year comes from Babylon. Say what?! Aren’t you amazed to find out that celebrating a New Year for Years in the seventh month is a BABYLONIAN tradition?

The Babylonians used to have a lunar-solar calendar very similar to the Biblical calendar. The result was that Yom Teruah often fell out on the same day as the Babylonian New Years festival known as Akitu. Akitu fell out on the 1st day of Tishri, as well as six months later on the first of Nisan. That’s right! To make matters more confusing the Babylonians celebrated Akitu – New Years – twice a year. Talk about confusing! I see some Tower of Babel fingerprints here.

The 1st of Tishri coincided with Yom Teruah on the 1st day of the Seventh Month. The fact that the Jews had started calling the Seventh Month by the Babylonian name Tishri paved the way for turning Yom Teruah into a Jewish Akitu. At the same time the Rabbis did not want to adopt Akitu outright, so they Judaized it by changing the name of Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting or Day of Trumpets) to Rosh Hashanah (New Years).

WHAT REMAINS?

So what remains if one desires to return to the solid age-old foundations of the Word of God?

Both Rabbinical Judaism and Constantine Christianity have traditions of man that are keeping us from fulfilling the Word of God. We need to determine His righteous measuring line in all things, in this case — celebrating His Feasts — the Feasts of the Lord. Not legalistically, but in a life-giving sense. Just know that any canonized form of the Bible has its limitations and its personal agendas.

That’s why we need to stick with the first five books of the Bible for the foundations of our faith, i.e. believing Moses. Yeshua actually tells His people this very thing: “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” (John 5:46-47 NKJV).

OFFERING BY FIRE

Let all Bridal Lovers of God try to lay down our agendas and traditions on God’s Altar, so we can each make that “offering by fire to the LORD” that Leviticus 23:25 prescribes. Let the All-Consuming Fire’s measuring line of His Word burn up all traditions of men that keep us in Babylon and from keeping the commandments of God that those who love Him will fulfill (Mark 7:7-9,13; John 14:15; 15:10; 1 John 5:2; 2 John 1:6; Revelation 14:12; 18:4).

RETURN OF OUR MESSIAH

What remains in the celebration of Yom Teruah is that what is Scriptural. Yom Teruah — the sounding of the shofar and lifting up of voices to God as ONE — celebrates the day of the return of our Messiah.

The friend who pointed out to me that Rosh Ha Shana was not Scriptural put it this way: “Imagine the ‘sky rolling up like a scroll’ and our Messiah coming for His Bride. Are you ready?”

There are several mentions of the “Last Trump” or “Great Trump” in Scripture, and it’s very prophetic! Matthew 24:30-31, 1 Cor 15:16-17; 1 Thess 4:16-17: Etc.

CORONATION DAY

What Scripturally remains is that the first day of the seventh month is the coronation day of the kings.

Psalm 47 is a coronation psalm. Check it out!

[1] Psalm 47:5 is the shout and trumpet of Yom Teruah that declares that  God has set His King upon His holy hill of Zion, and a royal rod of authority is placed in the King’s hands to rule righteously in all matters (Psalms 2:6-7; Genesis 49:10; Psalms 45:6; Isaiah 11:1,4; Zechariah 9:9; John 1:47-49; Revelation 2:27).

[2] Psalm 47:6 is the shouting of praise of the king. During the acclamation, all the people shout, “Long live the king!” (1 Kings 1:28-31).

[3] Psalm 47:8 is the ceremony of the throne where the king sits on the throne and is anointed as such (2 Samuel 5:3-4; 1 Kings 1:39-40; 2 Kings 9:1-6).

[4] Psalm 47:9 shows the believers in the Messiah gathering in His presence. Each of the King’s subjects come to visit the king after He has taken the throne. By doing this, they acknowledge their allegiance to Him and receive a commissioning from Him for their job in His Kingdom (Isaiah 66:22-23; Zechariah 14:16-17; Matthew 2:2).

SHIFT

So what caused this shift from Rosh Hashana to Yom Teruah last year for me?

It began with the following post from Rebekkah Avraham when I put out a call for people to seek the Lord for a word for the Biblical Year 5774 to share with others: “The Scriptural New Year starts on the 1st of Abib… in March/April. There is but one New Year in the Torah of the Most High. There are four in Jewish Tradition. The traditions of men that make the word of God of none effect. God bless you all. Shalom Aleichem.”

Turns out that she is right.

Rosh Ha Shanah is said to celebrate the beginning of the Civil New Year by its proponents — a New Year for Years. Heck, I’ve even touted that, because I thought it was something Biblical; but in reality, God calls the first day of the seventh month the Day of Blasts/Sounding, which corresponds to Yom Teruah. It is Rabbinic Judaism that calls it Rosh Ha Shanah (Head of the Year).

TO MARRY THE KING OF KINGS

Why this is important is that one of the foundational concepts about celebrating Biblical Feasts is that at His Feasts God is calling His people together at a particular time at a particular place to become betrothed (i.e., married to the King of Kings). No wonder there is so much confusion over feasts. It’s literally a battle over and for His Bride. Won’t you celebrate Him His way and join Him in holy matrimony?
