Today is Yom Kippur, also known as the “Day of Atonement”, the holiest day of the year in Judaism. Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with an approximate 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services, as they do this in accordance to what is written in the Old Testament book of the Bible that says; “On that day offerings of purification will be made for you, and you will be purified in the Lord’s presence from all your sins.” Leviticus 16:30 NLT
At that time, the high priest was to perform elaborate rituals, which included animal sacrifices to atone for the sins of the people. (See Leviticus 16:1-34)
But Jesus Christ, the Messiah, “Unlike those other high priests, He does not need to offer sacrifices every day. They did this for their own sins first and then for the sins of the people. But Jesus did this once for all when He offered Himself as the sacrifice for the people’s sins!” Hebrews 7:27 NLT
Yes! “For Christ Himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in His own body on the cross, He broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations!” Ephesians 2:14-15 NLT
Therefore, “There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 NLT
At that name is the Name Above All Names: JESUS CHRIST!!!
