Yom Kippurim (Day of Atonements) September 16th, 2021
Date Of Moed: 10th Day of 7th Month (Tishri – September / October)
The date for Yom Kippurim 2021 is Thursday September 16th, in the Hebrew Year 5782.
Yom Kippurim begins at sunset Wednesday, September 15th and ends at sunset Thursday, September 16th.
The Moedim are Dress Rehearsals for prophetic events. The fall moedim have yet to be fulfilled. Yom Kippurim is the second of the fall moedim, and will be fulfilled when Yeshua returns to judge the nations. Praise Yahweh for his promise to fulfill this prophecy.
Yom Kippurim is the day of atonements. Yes, I said atonements, not atonement! Under the Older Covenant, this day is the day the High Priest (Kohen Gadol) would make atonement for the holy sanctuary, for the Tabernacle, for the altar, for the priests, and for all the people (Leviticus 16:33). This is the day upon which the Book of Life was sealed for the following year. Again, The day of atonements. Yes, I said atonements, not atonement!
Under the Newer Covenant, Yeshua entered has entered the Holy of Holies in the Heavenly Temple, cleansed the altar with his own blood, made atonement for all sin, and now sits at the right hand of Yahweh. For the Bride of Yeshua, there is no longer any condemnation (Romans 8:1) – no need for a yearly atonement.
The Ten Days of Awe
Joel 2:13 – “Tear your heart . . . and turn to Yahweh, your God; for he is gracious and merciful.”
Ezekiel 14:6 – “Thus says Yahweh, ‘Repent, turn away from your idols and turn away from all your abominations’.”
Aseres Yemei Teshuvah, or the Ten Days of Repentance are the last ten days starting on Yom Teruah and leading up to the day of Yom Kippurim. The last ten days are also known as the Days of Awe, a term that is more commonly known as the Days of Jacob’s Trouble and represent the tribulation period that will purge the Earth of evil. If you only count the days between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur the number of days is seven, the same as the number of years in the tribulation period!
The fate of the people that are neither totally righteous nor totally wicked is not yet sealed at this point. Starting this evening there are only ten days until Yom Kippurim, the day when all must pass before Yahweh to be judged for their actions of the last year, when he determines their fate for the next year and the books are sealed.
The first two days of Aseres Yemei Teshuvah are the two days of Yom Teruah, and the third day is the Fast of Gedalia. Beginning on the second day, the shofar is blown every day as a warning to return to Yahweh in repentance.
The tenth day is the last day of Teshuvah, the day of Yom Kippurim. Those who are neither totally righteous nor totally wicked will have until Yom Kippurim to repent. Make full use of this time lest you be separated forever and consigned to the Lake of Fire for all eternity.
Yom Teruah, the Dress Rehearsal for the Resurrection of the Dead in Yeshua, has come and gone (or been fulfilled), and Yahweh has given the unbelieving ten days time to repent and call on his name before he determines their fate for the next year and the books are sealed.
