6. YOM HA-KIPPURIM - Day of Atonements
Regarded by many as the holiest day in the annual biblical calendar, Yom haKippurim (often abbreviated to Yom Kippur) - the penultimate of the seven annual appointments with Yahweh - is spent in fasting, prayer, and confession. This was one gracious day a year given by Yahweh that each individual could receive forgiveness. The Cohen Gadol or High Priest entered the Holy of Holies to make atonement for the nation by sacrificing animals including two goats. Yah'shua our Messiah (Jesus Christ) was displayed as our sacrifice. We can use this as a time of self-searching, repentance, and recommitment to Yahweh. The goats represent Messianic Israelites and Gentiles, respectively. Points to the day of the Messiah judging the world after His physically returning to earth.
