Yom Kippur Sept 27th &28th

Today is the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur or "The Day of Atonement." You can read about it in Leviticus 16:1-34. This part in particular stood out to me:

v. 20-22 "And when he has made an end of atoning for the Holy Place, the tabernacle of meeting, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat. Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, (Is. 53:6-All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.)

putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man.The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness." (Psalm 103:12 -As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.)

2 Cor. 5:19 - God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

PRAISE THE LORD everyday that He has made us right before Him through the blood of the Lamb... Jesus Christ! If you know someone Jewish TODAY you have the perfect segue to share the glorious Gospel... be bold for the sake of His glory and their soul!!
