This is the Torah on Yom HaKippurim which is noted in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 23:26-32

Lev 23:
26 And hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 27 Only on the tenth of this seventh month is the Day of the Atonements: he shall be a Holy Calling to yourselves; and you shall afflict ta-your souls, and you shall bring near a Fire Offering to hwhy. 28 And you shall not do any work in this same day: for he is the Day of Atonements to atone upon yourselves to the Face of hwhy, your Elohim. 29 For any of the soul whom she shall not be afflicted in this same day, and shall be cut off from her People. 30 And any of the soul whom she does any work in this same day, and I shall destroy ta-that soul from the midst of her People. 31 You shall not do any work: a Statute of Ages for your generations in all of your dwellings. 32 He is a Shabbath of Rest to yourselves, and you shall afflict ta-your souls: on the ninth of the month, in the mixing period (evening), from mixing period (evening), until mixing period (evening), you shall rest your Shabbath.

On Yom Kippur, we are to afflict ourselves, do no work, and fast.

Yom Kippur means "Day of Atonement" or "Day of Covering". It can also be phrased "At Onement", because it is the time the heavens are opened where we can communicate to Him to repent from our sins for the past year.

Looking at the following words:


The Hebrew word for atonements is "keep-poor"- Kaph, Peh, Resh (
rpk), but in the Hebrew phrase it's "keep-pooreem", adding the Yod, Mem Sophit (Myrpk). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3725, and its definition

From H3722; expiation (only in plural): - atonement.

from 3722 "kah-phahr" (
rpk), and its definition

A primitive root; to cover (specifically with bitumen); figuratively to expiate or condone, to placate or cancel: - appease, make (an) atonement, cleanse, disannul, forgive, be merciful, pacify, pardon, to pitch, purge (away), put off, (make) reconcile (-liation).

Also the word "kippur" is where we get our modern English word "cover". In other words, 
hwhy will "cover" our sins and iniquities.


The Hebrew word for afflict is "ah-nah"- Ayin, Nun, Heh (
hne). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6031, and its definition

A primitive root (possibly rather identical with H6030 through the idea of looking down or browbeating); to depress literally or figuratively, transitively or intransitively (in various applications). (sing is by mistake for H6030.): - abase self, afflict (-ion, self), answer [by mistake for H6030], chasten self, deal hardly with, defile, exercise, force, gentleness, humble (self), hurt, ravish, sing [by mistake for H6030], speak [by mistake for H6030], submit self, weaken, X in any wise.

Ralph Messer of Simchat Torah Beit Midrash sent an email recently about Yom Kippur that I thought was inspiring. This is what it says

"Yom Kippur is commemorated as a solemn day of fasting and prayer, repentance and forgiveness, and atonement by blood. In Hebraic thought, your future is not contingent upon your past. Therefore, at Yom Kippur, repentance is made for future sins of the upcoming year, not past sins. When the temptation to sin presents itself to you, the prayers of repentance from Yom Kippur go before you and help you resist the sin. You literally experience God going before you to defeat sin in your life".

Based on Ralph Messer's teaching, the atonement is for future sins. This is what Yeshua did for us when He went to the cross. Yeshua atoned for our sins by His Blood, not just the sins of His generation, but for the sins of future generations.

The word atonement can be separated to make the phrase "At onement", meaning to be atoned from our sins is to be at oneness with Him.

In verses the Hebrew text, in verses twenty nine and thirty, it has the same phrase translation "any of the soul", which in the Hebrew is "khahl hah-neh-phesh" (
spnh lk). The reason this is phrased this way, as well as in the Hebrew text, because the phrase is saying that any of the "nation's soul" or the "corporate soul" of the People who sins against hwhy.

This is the High Priest's charge of the Holy Temple during Yom Kippur which is noted in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 16:3-34

Lev 16:
On this, shall Aaron come to the Sanctuary: on a bullock of a son of the herd for a Sin Offering, and a ram for an Elevation Offering. 4 Shall put on the Holy Coat of Linen, and shall have the Breeches of Linen upon his flesh, and shall gird on the Belt of Linen, and shall wrap on the Mitre of Linen: they are Holy Garments; And shall bathe ta-his flesh in the water and shall put them on.

5 And shall take from
ta the Congregation of the Sons of Israel two kids of the goats for a Sin Offering, and one ram for an Elevation Offering. 6 And Aaron shall bring ta-the bullock of the Sin Offering which is for himself, and shall atone on unto himself and on unto his house. 7 And shall take ta-the two kids, and shall stand them to the Face of hwhy at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment. 8 And Aaron shall put upon the two kids lot stones; one lot stone for hwhy, and one lot stone for the Azazel (scapegoat). 9 And Aaron shall bring ta-the kid upon which ascended upon him the lot stone for hwhy, and offer him of a Sin Offering. 10 And the kid which ascended upon him of the lot stone for the Azazel (scapegoat) shall stand alive to the Face of hwhy to atone upon him to send him away for escaping to the wilderness.

11 And Aaron shall bring
ta-the bullock of the Sin Offering which is for himself, and shall atone on unto himself and on unto his house, and shall slaughter ta-the bullock of the Sin Offering which is for himself: 12 And shall take the fullness of the censer of coals of fire upon the Altar from of the Face of hwhy, and the fullness of his palms of incense of sweet incense, beaten small, and shall bring in the house of the Veil: 13 And shall put ta-the incense upon the fire to the Face of hwhy, and the cloud of the incense shall cover ta-the Mercy Seat which is upon the Testimony, and shall not die:

14 And shall take from the blood of the bullock, and on his finger shall sprinkle upon the face of the Mercy Seat, Eastward; and to the face of the Mercy Seat shall he sprinkle the blood on his finger seven times.

15 And shall slaughter
ta-the kid of the Sin Offering which is for the People, and shall bring ta-his blood to the housing of the Veil, and shall offer ta-his blood as which was done to the blood of the bullock, and shall sprinkle him upon the Mercy Seat and to the face of the Mercy Seat: 16 And shall atone upon the Sanctuary from the uncleanness of the Sons of Israel, and from their transgressions for all their sins: and so shall do for the Tent of Appointment that dwells with them in the midst of their uncleanness.

17 And any Adam shall not be in the Tent of Appointment in his going in to atone in the Sanctuary until he comes out and atones on unto himself, and on unto his household, and on unto all the Assembly of Israel. 18 And shall go out to the Altar which is to the Face of
hwhy, and shall atone upon himself; and shall take from the blood of the bullock and from the blood of the kid, and shall put upon the Horns of the Altar all around. 19 And shall sprinkle upon him the blood on his finger upon him seven times, and shall cleanse himself, and shall sanctify himself from the uncleanness of the Sons of Israel.

20 And finishing atoning
ta-the Sanctuary, and ta-the Tent of Appointment, and ta-the Altar, and bringing ta-the kid that is alive: 21 And Aaron shall lay ta-two of his hands upon the head of the goat that is alive, and shall confess upon him ta-all the iniquities of the Sons of Israel and ta-all their transgressions of all their sins, and shall put them upon the head of the kid, and shall send away on the hand of a fit-timely man to the wilderness: 22 And shall bear the kid upon him ta-all their iniquities to a uninhabited land: and shall send ta-the kid in the wilderness.

23 And Aaron shall come to the Tent of Appointment, and shall strip off
ta-the garments of the linen which was clothed in his going to the Sanctuary, and shall leave them there: 24 And shall bathe ta-his flesh in the water in the Holy Place, and shall clothe ta-his garments, and shall come out, and shall offer ta-his Elevation Offering and ta-the Elevation Offering of the People, and shall atone on unto him and on unto the People. 25 And shall burn as incense ta-the kheylev-fat of the Sin Offering to the Altar.

26 And the the one sending out
ta-the kid of the Azazel (scapegoat) shall wash his garments, and shall bathe ta-his flesh in the water, and after thus, shall come to the Camp.

27 And
ta the bullock of the Sin Offering and ta-the kid of the Sin Offering which ta-their blood was brought to atone in the Sanctuary shall carry to outside by the Camp; and they shall burn in the fire ta-their skins, and ta-their flesh, and ta-their dung, they shall burn in the fire. 28 And the one burning them shall wash his garments, and shall bathe ta-his flesh in the water, and after thus, shall come to the Camp.

29 And she shall be to you for a Statute of Ages: in the seventh month, in the tenth of the month, you shall afflict
ta-your souls, and the native and the stranger that is sojourning in your midst shall not do any work: 30 For shall atone upon you on this day to cleanse you from all your sins to the Face of hwhy, you shall be clean. 31 She is a Shabbath of Rest to you, and ye shall afflict ta-your souls of a Statute of Ages.

32 And the Priest shall atone him whom shall be anointed, and whom shall consecrate
ta-his hand to act as Priest instead of his father, shall clothe ta-the Garments of the Linen of the Holy Garments: 33 And shall atone ta-the Holy Sanctuary, and shall atone ta-the Tent of Appointment and ta-the Altar, and shall atone upon the Priests, and upon all the People of the Assembly. 34 And this, she shall be to you for a Statute of Ages to atone upon the Sons of Israel from all of their sins once in the year. And did as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

In verse eighteen and nineteen, the High Priest was to sprinkle the blood on the Horns of the Altar. Those Horns on the Altar could represent the places of the nails that were put on the cross. The blood that was sprinkled seven times on the Altar could also represent the amount of places on the cross that Yeshua was nailed.

Here are the seven places the nails were nailed on the cross: I give credit to Larry Huch of Larry Huch Ministries for revealing this:

One: The head of Yeshua- those thorns were like little nails, the crown of thorns represent one nail

Two and three: The two feet of Yeshua- one foot per placement

Four and five: The two hands of Yeshua

Six: The Roman spear that pierced Yeshua's side

Seven: I don't know if anyone thought of this before, but it was Yeshua's title written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin. Here is what was written in Hebrew:

ydwhyh Klmw myrunh ewsy
Yeshua Hanetsarim V'melekh H'yehudi.
Yeshua the Nazarene and King of the Jews.

If you look at the first Hebrew letter of each word it shows ".
h. .w. .h. .y.". His eternal name. It was showing that hwhy, Israel's first husband, was nailed to the cross to die so that Yeshua could be "the New Future Husband" to them when He resurrected from the dead

Continuing with the sacrifices offered on Yom HaKippurim which is noted in the book of Numbers

Numbers 29:7-11

Num 29
:7 And on the tenth of this seventh month shall be to you a Holy Calling, and you shall afflict ta-your souls. You shall not do any work: 8 and you shall offer an Elevation Offering to hwhy for a pleasant scent; one bullock of a son of a herd, one ram, seven lambs sons of a year; perfect ones they shall be to yourselves: 9 And their Food (Grain) Offerings of flour mixed in the oil, three tenths for the bullock, two tenths for the one ram, 10 a tenth, a tenth, for the one lamb, for the seven lambs: 11 one kid of the goats for a Sin Offering; apart of the Sin Offering of the Atonement, and the Continual Elevation Offering, and her Food Offering, and their Drink Offerings.

These were the sacrificial requirements at the time for Yom Kippur from Numbers chapter twenty nine in simpler format


*One bullock, son of a herd
*One ram
*Seven perfect lambs, sons of a year

*One kid of the goats

*One kid of the goats

*For the one bullock: 3/10 ephah of flour mixed in oil
*For the one ram: 2/10 ephah of flour mixed in oil
*For each lamb: 1/10 ephah of flour mixed in oil
(1/10 x 7 = 7/10 ephah)


[THE SHABBATH OFFERING (Depending on the day and year)]

*Two perfect lambs, sons of a year- the first lamb in the morning and the second lamb between the mixings
*1/10 of the Ephah of flour, mixed in 1/4 of a hin of oil beaten (similar to Leviticus 2:1-3 [Note: the adding of frankincense is not mentioned])
*1/4 of the hin [of wine], and in the Holy Sanctuary the priests pour the strong drink to hwhy
[THE SHABBATH OFFERING (Depending on the day)]

According to www.convert-me.com

An Ephah is 5.586 gallons.
A Hin is 0.9309 gallons.

A reminder that 
hwhy commanded during Yom Kippur to have two goats: one to hwhy and one for the Azazel scapegoat. That is why there was not a third goat.

*Two perfect lambs, sons of a year

2/10 ephah of flour mixed in oil

*Without The Food Offering

Practically, it is close to a double Fire Offering. The Daily Fire Offering in this case did not include the Food Offering. Maybe it is hwhy's mercy on them, because it is the Shabbath, and there was already a Food (Grain) Offering. I'm guessing the other Drink Offering is the same requirement as the one for The Daily Fire Offering.

hwhy also wants us to sacrifice our desire to work on the seventh day by resting on the Shabbath and have fellowship with Him.

Another event that occurred during Yom Kippur is the Jubilee which is noted in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 25:10-55

Lev 25
:10 And you shall sanctify the year, ta the fiftieth year, and you shall proclaim liberty in all the land to all her dwellers: she, she shall be a Jubilee for yourselves; and you shall repay a man to his possession, and you shall return a man to his family. 11 The Jubilee, she shall be the fiftieth year, a year she shall be to you: You shall not sow, and you shall not reap ta-her produce, and you shall not clip off ta-her unkept vines. 12 For she is the Jubilee; she shall be Holy to you: you shall eat ta-her produce from the field. 13 In the year of this Jubilee, you shall return a man to his possession. 14 And if you sell merchandise to your neighbor, or buy from the hand of your neighbor, you shall not oppress a man ta-his brother: 15 You shall buy from ta your neighbor on the number of years after the Jubilee, shall sell to you on the number of years of produce: 16 You shall multiply from his price by the mouth of the many years, and you shall diminish his price by the mouth of the fewness of the years: he is selling to you by the number of production. 17 And you shall not oppress a man ta-his neighbor; and you shall fear from your Elohim: for I am hwhy, your Elohim. 18 And you shall do ta-My Statutes, and you shall keep ta-My Judgments, and you shall do them; and you shall dwell upon the land for security. 19 And you shall give the land her fruit, and you shall eat to satisfaction, and you shall dwell upon her for security.

20 And if you shall say, What shall we eat in the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow, and we shall not gather
ta-our produce: 21 And I shall command My Blessing to you on the sixth year, and shall make the produce for the three years. 22 And you shall sow ta the eighth year, and you shall eat from her produce until the ninth year; you shall eat the old until the coming of her produce, 23 and you shall not sell the land for destruction (extinction, perpetuity): for the land is to Me; for your are strangers and dwellers with Me. 24 And in all the land of your possession, you shall give a redemption for the land.

25 If your brother shall be poor, and has sold his possession, and his redeemer that is related to him shall come near and redeem ta the sold thing of his brother. 26 And if shall not be to him a man of a redeemer, and his hand was able, and finds as enough of his redemption; 27 And shall compute ta-the years of his sale, and shall return ta-the remainder (surplus) whom was sold to him to the man; and shall return to his possession. 28 And if his hand has not found enough to return to him, and shall be his sold thing in the hands of the one buying him until the year of the Jubilee, and shall go out on the Jubilee and shall return to his possession.

29 And if a man dwelling at a walled city shall sell a house, and she shall be his redemption until the end of the year of his sale; she shall be the days of his redemption. 30 And if is not redeemed to himself until the fullness of a complete year, and shall remain the house which is in the city which was to him a wall for security to his buyer for his generations: shall not go out in the Jubilee. 31 And the houses of the villages which has not a wall all around to them shall be computed upon the fields of the land, she shall be to him for a redemption: and shall go out in the Jubilee.

32 And the cities of the Levites of the houses of the cities of their possession, she shall be a Redemption of Ages to the Levites. 33 And whomever shall redeem from the Levites, and shall go out a sale of the house, and shall be a city of their possession in the Jubilee: for the houses of the cities of the Levites, she is their possession in the midst of the Sons of Israel. 34 And a field of a pasture land of their cities shall not be sold; for he is to them a Possession of Ages.

35 And if your brother shall be poor, and has failed his hand with you; and you shall take hold on him for a stranger and a dweller; and shall live with you, 36 you shall not take from him of interest (usary) or increase: you shall fear from your Elohim; and your brother shall live with you. 37 And you shall not give to him
ta-your silver on interest, and you shall not give your food on increase. 38 I am hwhy, your Elohim, whom I have brought you out from the land of Egypt to give to you ta-the land of Canaan, to be to you for Elohim.

39 And if your brother with you shall be poor, and was sold to you; you shall not make over on him the service of a servant: 40 Shall be with you as a hired one, as a dweller (sojourner), shall serve with you until the year of the Jubilee: 41 And he shall go out from you, he and his sons with him, and shall return to his family, and shall return to the possession of his fathers. 42 For they are My Servants whom I have brought them out from the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold from a sale of a servant. 43 You shall not tread down on him on cruelty; and you shall fear from your Elohim. 44 And your male servant and your female servant whom they shall be to you, from ta the nations who are all around you; you shall buy them for a male servant and a female servant. 45 And also from the sons of the dwellers that are sojourning with you, you shall buy from them, and from their families who are with you whom they have birthed in your land: and they shall be to you for a possession. 46 And you shall inherit them for your sons after you of a possession for ages: on them, they shall be servants: and on your brothers of the Sons of Israel, each among his brother, you shall not rule against him in cruelty.

47 And if you shall lift up a hand of a stranger or a dweller with you, and your brother is poor with him, and is sold to a stranger of a dweller with you, or of a naturalized one from the family of a stranger: 48 After has been sold, you shall be a redeemer to him; one from his brothers shall redeem him: 49 or his uncle, or a son of his uncle shall redeem him, or from a relative of his flesh from his family shall redeem him; or an enabler of his hand, and shall redeem. 50 And shall compute with his buyer from the year of his selling to him until the year of the Jubilee: and and his sale shall be of silver on the number of years, shall be with him as the days of hireling. 51 If shall be yet many on the years, by their mouths shall return his redemption with the silver from his purchase. 52 And if few remain on the years until the year of the Jubilee, and shall compute to him according to the mouth of his years, shall return ta-his redemption. 53 Shall be with him as a hired servant year by year: shall not rule on cruelty in your eyes. 54 And if shall not redeem on these, and he and his sons with him shall go out in the year of the Jubilee, 55 for the Sons of Israel are servants to Me; They are My servants whom I brought them out from the land of Egypt: I am hwhy, your Elohim.

It is probable that Yeshua was born in a Jubilee year.

Year of Jubilee

This is a precursor account of the fall feasts which is noted in the book of Genesis

Genesis 24:1-28

Gen 24:1 
And Abraham was old, going in the days: and hwhy had blessed ta-Abraham in allness. 2 And Abraham said to his servant, the elder of his house that ruled over all that he had, Put now, your hand under my testicles: 3 And I will make you swear in hwhy, the Elohim of the Heavens, and the Elohim of the Earth, that you will not take a wife to my son from the daughters of the Canaanites whom I dwell in his midst: 4 But you will go to my land, and to my kindred, and you will take a wife for my son, for Isaac. 5 And the servant said to him, Perhaps the woman, she is not willing to go after me to this land: that returning, I shall return ta-your son to the land which you came out from there? 6 And Abraham said to him, Take heed for yourself lest you return ta-my son there. 7 hwhy, Elohim of the Heavens, who took me from the house of my father, and from the land of my kindred, and who spoke to me, and who swore to me, to say, I will give ta-this land to your seed; He shall send His Messenger to your face, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. 8 And the woman, if she shall not be willing to go after you, and you shall be innocent from this of my oath: only do you not return ta-my son there. 9 And the servant put ta-his hand under the testacles of Abraham his master, and sware to him upon this word.

10 And the servant took ten camels from the camels of his master, and left; and all the goods of his master were in his hand: and arose, and went to Aram Naharaim, to the city of Nahor. 11 And the camels knelt down outside of the city to a bored well of the water, of the time of the evening, of the time of the going out of the drawing. 12 And said, 
hwhy Elohim of my master, Abraham, cause to meet now to the facing of today, and do kindness unto my master Abraham. 13 Behold, I am standing by the eye-well of the water; and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water: 14 And shall be, the young woman whom I shall say to her, Let down now your pitcher, and I may drink her; and say of her, Drink, and also I will water your camels: her, you have designed for your servant Isaac; and in her I shall know that you have done kindness unto my master.

15 And before he was finishing to speak, and behold, Rebekah came out, who was birthed to Bethuel, son of Milcah, wife of Nahor, brother of Abraham, and her pitcher was upon her shoulder. 16 And the young woman was good of form much, a virgin, and a man had not known her: and she went down to the eye-well, and she filled her pitcher, and she ascended. 17 And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I shall drink a little water from your pitcher. 18 And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hurried, and she let down her pitcher upon her hand, and she gave him drink. 19 And she finished to give him drink, and she said, I will draw for your camels also until when they have finished drinking. 20 And she hurried, and she emptied her pitcher to the trough, and she ran again to the bored-well to draw, and she drew for all his camels. 21 And the man was wondering to her with silence to know that
hwhy had prospered his journey, if not.

22 And was, as which the camels finished to drink, and the man took a golden earring of a cut shekel of his weight, and two bracelets upon her hands, ten of gold of their weight; 23 And said, Who of the daughter are you? Tell me now: has the house of your father a place for us to lodge? 24 And she said to him, I am the daughter of Bethuel, son of Milcah, whom was birthed to Nahor. 25 And she said to him, Also straw also fodder are much with us, also a place to lodge. 26 And the man bowed, and worshipped to
hwhy. 27 And said, Blessed be hwhy Elohim of my master, Abraham, who has not forsaken his kindness and his truth from with my master: I being in the way, hwhy led me to the house of the brother of my master. 28 And the young woman, she ran, and she told to the house of her mother according to these words.

Verse eleven through nineteen is symbolic of Yom Kippur, for Abraham's servant, popularly accepted to be Eliezer, afflicted his soul and selflessly prayed to 
hwhy to find a wife for his master, Isaac, on behalf of his master, Abraham, and Rebekah selflessly afflicted her soul to take extra time to water Eliezer, his men, and the ten camels as well as providing them a place to lodge.

This section of the account connects to the next scripture source in which the Prophet Isaiah talked to the Israelites on Yom HaKippurim in his book

Isaiah 58:1-14

Isa 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a shofar, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. 2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their Elohim: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to Elohim. 3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? Wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours. 4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. 5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to 
hwhy? 6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of hwhy shall be thy rereward. 9 Then shalt thou call, and hwhy shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: 11 And hwhy shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. 13 If thou turn away thy foot from the Shabbath, from doing thy pleasure on My Holy Day; and call the Shabbath a delight, the Holy of hwhy, honourable; and shalt honour Him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: 14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in hwhy; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob, thy father: for the Mouth of hwhy hath spoken it.

Isaiah was stating that the Israelites were fasting with means to exult themselves and go back to do the same things they have been doing by their own means. Isaiah uses the example of afflicting their souls by giving to the poor. Rebekah also would fit what Isaiah told the Israelites what they could do to afflict their souls.

These next scripture do not say if they were referring to Yom HaKippurim, but it shows relevance. Looking at this account which is noted in the book of the prophet Joel

Joel 1:14-20; 2:1-32

Joel 1:14 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the Elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of 
hwhy, your Elohim, and cry unto hwhy, 15 Alas for the day! For the Day of hwhy is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. 16 Is not the meat cut off before our eyes, yea, joy and gladness from the house of our Elohim? 17 The seed is rotten under their clods, the garners are laid desolate, the barns are broken down; for the corn is withered. 18 How do the beasts groan! the herds of cattle are perplexed, because they have no pasture; yea, the flocks of sheep are made desolate. 19 hwhy, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field. 20 The beasts of the field cry also unto thee: for the rivers of waters are dried up, and the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness.

Joel 2:1 Blow ye the shofar in Zion, and sound an alarm in My Holy Mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the Day of 
hwhy cometh, for it is nigh at hand; 2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great People and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. 3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. 4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. 5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. 6 Before their face the People shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. 7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: 8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. 9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. 10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: 11 And hwhy shall utter His Voice before His Army: for His Camp is very great: for He is strong that executeth His Word: for the Day of hwhy is great and very terrible; and who can abide it? 12 Therefore also now, saith hwhy, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto hwhy, your Elohim: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto hwhy, your Elohim? 15 Blow the shofar in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: 16 Gather the People, sanctify the Congregation, assemble the Elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. 17 Let the Priests, the ministers of Elohim, weep between the porch and the Altar, and let them say, Spare Thy People, hwhy, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their Elohim? 18 Then will hwhy be jealous for His Land, and pity His People. 19 Yea, hwhy will answer and say unto His People, Behold, I will send you
ta-grain, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: 20 But I will remove far off from you ta-the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with ta-His Face toward the east sea, and His Hinder Part toward the utmost sea, and His Stink shall come up, and His Ill Savour shall come up, because He hath done great things. 21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for hwhy will do great things. 22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. 23 Be glad then, ye Children of Zion, and rejoice in hwhy, your Elohim: for He hath given you ta-the early rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the early rain, and the latter rain in the first month. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 And I will restore to you ta-the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. 26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise ta-the Name of hwhy, your Elohim, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and My People shall never be ashamed. 27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am hwhy, your Elohim, and none else: and My People shall never be ashamed. 28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit. 30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the Terrible Day of hwhy come. 32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the Name of hwhy shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as hwhy hath said, and in the remnant whom hwhy shall call.

Yeshua talked to his disciples regarding fasting and praying

Matthew 17:14-21

Mat 17:14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 Then Yeshua answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 18 And Yeshua rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Yeshua apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Yeshua said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Yeshua ties fasting and praying through faith or belief. This is what Yom Kippur does.

This is a section of the parable of the Ten Virgins

Matthew 25:1-9

Mat 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

Verse seven is the verse that is symbolic of Yom HaKippurim. The trimming of the wicks are an symbolic act to afflict ones soul and rid of their burnt part of the wick, or their symbolic "sins and pride" in their lives.

Ever since Yeshua became our current Eternal High Priest, He has been continuing to atone for our sins every year on the tenth day of the seventh month in the Kingdom of Heaven. Lastly as John the Immerser and Yeshua said in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 3:1-2

Mat 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Matthew 4:17

Mat 4:17 From that time Yeshua began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.



This was the last of the High Holy Days I came to observe. This is my personal story how I started to observe this High Holy Day. One day while I was working, thoughout the time of my shift at work, I felt a burning/sizzlingish feeling on the top of my head. It wasn't hurting me, but it was impacting, not to affect my perfomance at work. After I came home, within a short time later, I told my wife what happened throughout my shift. After a little while being home, a thought came to me to check the calendar, which I had a Jewish calendar. I looked at the day I worked, and discovered that the day I worked fell on Yom Kippur. I then realized that the Ruakh HaKodesh was telling me that this is a day to be observed. I  also realized that Yeshua was my head, as spoken by the apostle Paul, in his letter to the assembly at Corinth

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Messiah; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Messiah is hwhy.

Yeshua was also heaping "coals" on my head, and it is based on the apostle Paul's letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

Though, I am not Yeshua's enemy, He still put some "fiery coals" on my head, telling me, "My son, you to need to observe this High Holy Day too", and from the following year and evry year after, I have been observing Yom HaKippurim.


The apostle Paul explained the High Priest's role including a briefing of the annual Yom HaKippurim role of the High Priest, which is noted in the book of Hebrews

Hebrews 9:3-28

Heb 9:3 And after the Second Veil, the Tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; 4 Which had the Golden Censer, and the Ark of The Covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the Golden Pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the Tablets of the Covenant; 5 And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the Mercy Seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly. 6 Now when these things were thus ordained, the Priests went always into the First Tabernacle, accomplishing the Service of 
hwhy. 7 But into the second went the High Priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the People: 8 The Holy Spirit this signifying, that the way into the Holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the First Tabernacle was yet standing: 9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; 10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. 11 But Messiah being come an High Priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect Tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this Building; 12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own Blood he entered in once into the Holy Place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Messiah, who through the Eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to hwhy, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the Living hwhy? 15 And for this cause He is the Mediator of the New Covenant, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the First Covenant, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16 For where a Covenant is, there must also of necessity be the death of the Testator. 17 For a covenant is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the Testator liveth. 18 Whereupon neither the First Covenant was dedicated without blood. 19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the People according to the Torah, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the Book, and all the People, 20 Saying, This is the blood of the Covenant which hwhy hath enjoined unto you. 21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the Tabernacle, and all the Vessels of the ministry. 22 And almost all things are by the Torah purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. 23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Messiah is not entered into the Holy Places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the Presence of hwhy for us: 25 Nor yet that He should offer Himself often, as the High Priest entereth into the Holy Place every year with blood of others; 26 For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So Messiah was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Every year on Yom HaKippurim, as mentioned in the book of Numbers mentioned above, the High Priest has to bring blood to the Holy of Holies to atone for Himself and all of the Israelite People every year. Whereas, Yeshua, the current High Priest, made an atonement with His blood at the Heavenly Temple for the world once and for all, for those who want to accept it, not just for the moment, but forever.

The apostle Paul noted atonement in his letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 5:8-11

Rom 5:8 But 
hwhy commendeth His Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by His Blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to hwhy by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His Life. 11 And not only so, but we also joy in hwhy through our Lord Yeshua, the Messiah, by whom we have now received the atonement.

We are atoned through the blood of Yeshua, our Messiah, our Eternal High Priest, forever. This is His way of saying to us, "Don't worry, I got you covered".
