peace and goodwill to all of peaceful goodwill-
i know that " atonement " is not a "christian" concept and that this upcoming day of jewish worship is not a part of the christan calender;
but i think it and all the rest of the high holy days really should be.
after all Humanities Savior Brother and Israels ONLY MESSIAH kept this day as He kept all the High Holy Days of the jewish calender;
so should His Disciples keep them too in this and every age to come . just as OUR MASTER did in His Original Age and Time.
i do agree that Yesh'wa's Perfect Work of Perfect Faithful Love was fully completed atop a trash heep outside jerusalems' city gates as the sold out temple leadership watched and laughed as Yahweh's Son ransomed all humanity from our " sin bill" forever by willingly allowing the shedding of every drop of His Innocent Blood-
it is by our faith in that His Perfect Work and His Innocent Blood to forever make us spiritually clean that we are made so.
just as by there faith on that following yon kippar found those false and despotic jewish leaders that were still breathing in sac clothe and ash seeking and receiving " atonement" and covering of the murderous sins that they were accomplices to on that previous passover and the months that followed it.
we living believers and disciples of Our Savior and Brother and His Life giving Way of Faithful Love are no longer bound by any sin bond-
but as long as we are contained fully in our human form and are still dwelling on this side of heavens gates we can and often do " pick up" spiritual short comings that easily build into " spiritual problems" that have near identical traits found in pre-Resurrection "sins".
when these " spiritual problems " build in us we need not wait until " the day of atonement comes around"-
we can find full forgiveness of all our " spiritual errors" at any time via our faithful prayer to Our Forever Living Savior Yesh'wa ; ONE with Yahweh Our Forever Living Father ...
it just seems to be a nice and unifying thing to continue to honor this great day of heavens mercy just as Yesh'wa, moses and all the prophets had done in there time while still on this side of Heavens Gates.
peace and good and tons o'love to all peace loving folks of goodwill and faith,
