ATONEMENT (“AT ONE” with GOD)

Today’s Reading: Leviticus 16

A wandering goat on the hillside by the Sea of Galilee. This is obviously a nanny goat. The male of the the species was an acceptable offering for sacrifice.

Key Verses: Leviticus 16:15, 34

“Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering, which is for the people, bring its blood inside the veil…and sprinkle it on the mercy seat and before the mercy seat…

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.

 

Yom Kippur, the annual Day of Atonement in the Jewish calendar, has just passed. Here, this most holy day is established. On this day, observant Jews confess their sins to God and ask forgiveness. Last week we presented a video regarding Yom Kippur that everyone should see (click here). Please watch it again. Please pass it on to others.

As believers in Jesus, we have confidence (or boldness) to enter the Most Holy Place every day (Hebrews 10:19-25). Please don’t miss reading from Hebrews!!! When we listen to God as we read His Word and pray, there is an increase in our awareness of His Presence. This blog can help us do this every day. Then, as that passage in Hebrews reminds us, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together.” We need the ministry gifts that God has provided in our local congregation. We need each other in greater depth than the Internet can provide.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord Jesus, every day I ask for the Divine Teacher, the Holy Spirit, to teach me so that I may teach Your Word correctly and with inspiration. Thank You, Father, that Your Son, our High Priest has, by the Sacrifice of Himself, opened the way into the most Holy Place. May I cherish this most sacred privilege daily. I pray this through the Person and work of Jesus. Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS (plus a few more):

I’ve committed to doing “100words” daily. This is something that I believe the Lord clearly asked me to do. Following a week of fasting and prayer in our church, I was awakened at 4 a.m. to hear that still small Voice say, “David, you will awaken at this time every day and you will prepare and write a daily blog.” If you’re new to my blog and would like to read more about it, you can visit the “About 100words.ca” by clicking here. I try to read every posted comment, and I’m very sorry that I cannot answer each one. The very best place to get answers is when you assemble “yourselves together” in your local church in a class or listening to the Pastor. The Crossroads/100 Huntley Street prayer lines are available toll free across the continent 24/7 at 1-866-273-4444. Our prayer partners will do their best to answer questions and they can recommend a local congregation in your area. Also, be sure to watch 100 Huntley Street daily. Here’s how to find it on TV (click here) or to watch it online (click here). To my Canadian readers – HAPPY THANKSGIVING THIS WEEKEND!!!

Yours for communicating daily,

David

Yesterday I included a link to an excellent newly found historical document, and about once a year I will surf the net at the links offered to see what’s there. As usual, I was amazed at what I came across. There are no editorial boards to check the facts of everything posted online, like a reputable newspaper would have. A lot of it reminds me of the lies I cannot avoid seeing on the magazine rack every time I go to the check out at the supermarket. For what it’s worth, my advice is, “Please don’t waste your time.” You would be much better served by going back and reading over again a few verses of today’s Bible reading, and taking the time to meditate on them.
