Yom Kippur - The Day of Atonement – Part One

Leviticus 23:26-32 “And the LORD/Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying: ‘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 [Strong’s H6031 עָנָה ] your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD/Yahweh. And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD/Yahweh your God/Elohim. For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 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.’”

Leviticus 16:29-31 “And this shall be a permanent statute for you: in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall humble [Strong’s H6035 עָנָיו ] your souls, and not do any work, whether the native, or the STRANGER who sojourns among you; for it is on this day that atonement shall be made for you to cleanse you; you shall be clean from all your sins before the LORD/Yahweh. It is to be a Sabbath of solemn rest for you, that you may humble your souls; it is a permanent statute.”

Numbers 29:7-11 “On the tenth day of this seventh month you shall have a holy convocation. You shall afflict [Strong’s H6031 עָנָה ] your souls; you shall not do any work. You shall present a burnt offering to the LORD/Yahweh as a sweet aroma: one young bull, one ram, and seven lambs in their first year. Be sure they are without blemish. Their grain offering shall be of fine flour mixed with oil: three-tenths of an ephah for the bull, two-tenths for the one ram, and one-tenth for each of the seven lambs; also one kid of the goats as a sin offering, besides the sin offering for atonement, the regular burnt offering with its grain offering, and their drink offerings.”

In the above scriptures, what does "to afflict" or "to humble" your soul mean? Both words have their root in Strong’s H6031 אהנ , under this meaning: to afflict, oppress, humble, be afflicted, be bowed down. Still, this interpretation does not tell us much. Hebrew is a picture language, therefore, looking at Paleo Hebrew through the Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible helps define Strong’s H6031 as: to watch, eye or affliction. It is a picture of an eye and a seed together, which means: eye of continuance. The nomadic agriculturist carefully watches over his livestock and crops by keeping a close eye on them. It was common to construct a shelter consisting of a roof on four posts, as a shelter from the glare of the sun. Afflict or depression: A furrow depression is formed between the eyes when watching intensely. The furrow or depression may also be formed by concentration. Humble: Gentle: In the sense of a careful watching. One who is oppressed or depressed ie: meek, humble, poor, lowly. With this understanding, what posture are we to assume on Yom Kippur?

Romans 11:16-26 “For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.”

Our attitude when arriving on Yom Kippur is to be one of humility. We are coming before the King in His Kingdom. However, before we do, there are ten days from the day of Trumpets [Yom Teruah] to the day of Atonement [Yom Kippur] that have prepared us for this event.

The Ten Days of Awesomeness

After the romance of the first day of the month at Trumpets [Yom Teruah] and the great trumpet announcement of the Bridegroom’s imminent arrival, the five wise virgins have woken to trim their lamps. They have taken the extra oil in their possession and gone out to meet their beloved. Meanwhile, the unwise virgins also awoke but realized they were ill prepared for His return. After pleading with the others, remove themselves from the activity, in search of extra oil. When they left, the wise virgins were ushered in where attendants spent ten days arraying them in splendor. They were fitted with beautiful white flowing linen garments, as pure as their hearts, and made ready for their wedding. Ten days after Trumpets [Yom Teruah], on the tenth of the seventh biblical month on day of Atonement [Yom Kippur], the wise were ready entering into the wedding (Matthew 25:1-13).

Exodus 26:1 “Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine woven [white] linen and blue, purple, and scarlet thread.”

Isaiah 66:1-2 “Thus says the LORD/Yahweh: ‘Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? For all those things My hand has made, and all those things exist,’ says the LORD / Yahweh. ‘But on this one will I look: on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word.’”

On the Day of Atonement [Yom Kippur], Yahweh instructed Aaron, the High Priest, to have a ceremonial washing to change his status from the commonplace/earthly realm to the heavenly/holy Kingdom realm and then to dress himself in the High Priest’s white linen garments. Only after these acts were completed was Aaron consecrated and permitted to enter into the Tabernacle to fulfill the High Priest Yom Kippur duties on behalf of the Israelite community.

In the outer courtyard, Aaron sacrificed a bull for his own transgressions and for those of his household on the brazen altar (Leviticus 16:6). He then took the burning coals from under the altar, along with two handfuls of fragrant incense and entered into the Holy Place in the Tabernacle. He placed the incense on the fire of the golden altar (altar of incense) to cleanse it and then entered into the holy of holies, passing through the curtain dividing the two rooms. He sprinkled blood from the bull seven times in front of the atonement cover (the mercy seat), which was on top of the ark of the covenant. Aaron then brought two goats to sacrifice for the sins of the whole Israelite community.

The First Goat

The first goat was sacrificed as an elevation offering, after which Aaron the High Priest took some of its blood into the most holy place and sprinkled it on the atonement cover seven times. Aaron then took some of the bull’s blood and some of the first goat’s blood and put it on the horns of the altar of incense, sprinkling it seven times to cleanse and consecrate the altar from the uncleanness of the Israelites (Leviticus 16:3-19). The first goat was wholly burned on the brazen altar in the outer courtyard where the aroma ascended to Yahweh as an aroma of righteousness (Romans 4:24).

The blood sacrifice and the sprinkling of blood behind the veil in the Most Holy Place were in agreement to the vision that was contained within the blood offering of the Covenant. This offering was a shadow of better things to come.

Colossians 2:16-17 “So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival[Feast Day] or a new moon or Sabbaths[Weekly and Holy Days], which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ/Messiah.

What was the blood offering of Yom Kippur in agreement to?

Habakkuk 2:2-3 “Then the LORD/Yahweh answered me and said: ‘Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.’”

The veil represents the flesh of Yeshua. The shedding of His blood fulfilled the vision our forefather’s had in the knowledge of the coming of the Messiah. When the vision, Yeshua, came, and His blood was shed, the vision was made complete. The animal blood sacrifice that the High Priest offered in those days was in the understanding of the Messiah’s future physical appearance on earth. Thus, these offerings were seen as righteousness. Once Messiah came and conquered sin and death with His more perfect blood, the legal requirement for the remission of sins on Yom Kippur was fulfilled. Now there is no longer a requirement for sin on this Day, as Yeshua’s blood completed the necessity for it once and for all. Thus, the veil in the temple was rent in half, proof of His righteous offering redeeming mankind from sin, giving access into the Most Holy of Holies.

Hebrews 10:16-22 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD/Yahweh: I will put My laws [the gospel/Torah/the principles given at Mount Sinai] into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them, then He adds, their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more. Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin. Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus/Yeshua, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God/Elohim, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water” (Leviticus 16; Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 8:8-10).

Hebrews 9:12 “Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He [Yeshua] entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.

Leviticus 16:16 “And he shall make atonement for the Holy Place, because of the impurities of the sons of Israel, and because of their transgressions, in regard to all their sins; and thus he shall do for the tent of meeting which abides with them in the midst of their impurities.”

Hebrews 10:19-22 “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus/Yeshua, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”

The Tabernacle is actually made of two chambers: The Holy Place and the Most Holy Place.
