Yom Kippur – The Day of Atonements

Yom Kippur is a very special (and the most set-apart) day of the Hebrew calendar year. Yom Kippur (or the Day of Atonement) represents the day when Yeshua comes to take His Proverbs 31 bride home to His Father’s house. This study is for those who hope to be that Proverbs 31 bride, so that we know, understand, and commit to doing what it takes to please Him in that day.

Yahweh’s calendar

The Hebrew calendar is effectively a series of dates set up between Yahweh the Father, His Son (the Bridegroom), and His prospective bride (Nazarene Israel). So if the feasts are a series of dates, do we not need to be there, at the right place at the right time, doing what we are supposed to be doing?

We are going to take a look at all these things in this presentation. Then, in the second half of the presentation, we are going to take a look at the promises to the bride, and all the good, wonderful things He is going to bring His bride.

Establishing the Head of the Year

As we explained in The Torah Calendar study and also in studies such as Establishing the Head of the Year, the Hebrew year properly begins (according to Scripture) on Rosh HaShanah, (the Head of the Year). And that is when the first crescent sliver of the new moon is seen from the land of Israel and when there is going to be the very first sheaf of aviv (medium dough) barley, symbolic of Yeshua, 15 to 21 days later, on the day of Yom Hanafat HaOmer (the Day of the Wave Sheaf Offering). So, we know that the priesthood is going to announce Rosh HaShanah (the Head of the Year) when:

  1. The first crescent sliver of the new moon is seen from the land of Israel.
  2. There is a single sheaf of aviv (medium dough) barley within 15 to 21 days after the first crescent sliver of the new moon is seen from the land of Israel.

Yom Teruah and Yahweh’s feasts of the 7th month

6 months after Rosh HaShanah, we observe Yahweh’s feasts of the seventh month. The beginning of the 7th month is Yom Teruah (The Day of Trumpets). And then, 10 days after Yom Teruah comes Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement). If you would like to learn more about the feasts of the first month, Yahweh’s other seventh month feasts, or how to know when to declare Rosh HaShanah, we encourage you to check out the corresponding links. In this study, we want to focus on the very special day of Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur: a set-apart rehearsal

Yom Kippur is also known as Yom HaKippurim (plural) in Hebrew. This is because it is a day of atonement for the entire nation of Israel. However, since the concept is one of general, overal atonement for the entire nation, it is usually translated in the singular form of Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement).

In Vayiqra (Leviticus) chapter 23, we see that Yom Kippur is a set-apart rehearsal. And in this video, we want to talk about what exactly we are rehearing. What event does Yahweh want us practicing for? And once we see what we, as Yeshua’s bride, are rehearsing for, we will understand why Yom Kippur is the most set-apart, special day of the Hebrew year. And why this special day is equivalent to a bride rehearsing in preparation for her wedding day!

Vayiqra (Leviticus) 23:26-28
26 And Yahweh spoke to Moshe, saying:
27 “Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement(s). It shall be a set-apart rehearsal [holy convocation] for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to Yahweh.
28 And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement(s), to make atonement for you before Yahweh your Elohim.

How to keep Yom Kippur as Yeshua’s Proverbs 31 bride

Yom Kippur should be the most special day of the year for Yeshua’s bride. It is a day of no servile work and a day of afflicting our souls. We will talk about the significance of Yom Kippur, and explain the correct way for Yeshua’s bride to keep this special feast day, according to Yahweh’s Torah.
