Day of Atonement observance this evening until tomorrow evening (Leviticus 23:26-32). Historically, it was one of the most important days of the year for Hebrews during the times of temple-based sacrifices and worship. It was the time when the high priest entered the holy of holies to make the atoning sacrifice for all of Israel (Leviticus 16).
I believe that the day is still special. We know that our bodies are the temple for the Holy Spirit. Heavenly Abba commands that we fast, afflict our souls and do no servile work on this important day. May the great High Priest after the order of Melchizedek visit the temple to make atonement for our souls (Hebrews 6:16-20; Hebrews 5:1-9).
Shalom in the Master!
