Yom Kippurim and the sins of our fathers

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Yom Kippur

When we consider the world, we may be led to mistakenly believe that we can sin with impunity. However, sin without consequence does not exist. It may appear that ungodly people prosper more than the godly. They seem to be blessed in all areas of their lives, but if you look deeper, you will often find emptiness, heartache and depression. Sadly, this doesn’t seem to be unique to unbelievers, we find the same pain amongst believers. This pain in both groups is eased with obsessions or addictions: work, ministry, prescription drugs, alcohol, co-dependent relationships, sex or thrills.

We said that sin without punishment does not exist, but we don’t always see this punishment. How are we to understand this?

The Biblical pattern to forgive

How to forgive

If we want to ensure that we live within the blessings of YHVH, we need to ensure that our relationships with our brothers are in good shape. We cannot go before YHVH if we have a brother that has something against us. Does this imply we simply need to forgive all who transgress against us? If we follow the pattern that YHVH establishes when we sin, the restoration process cannot be one way. Forgiveness is required for our relationships to be restored, but in order for it to be a lasting restoration, it has follow the pattern YHVH established.

The six woes, and Yom Kippurim

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Scripture, Yom Kippur

It is almost Yom Kippurim, the most solemn day of the year. A day of atonements, a day of introspection and repentance. I am sure we have all been searching ourselves, to find the areas where we fall short. I always ask YHVH to reveal these areas to me, and He is faithful. It is never pleasant, but good for growth and profitable in becoming who He wants us to be. So, how does this relate to the six woes and rotten fruit, you may wonder.

Yom Kippurim…a call of repentance to the nation

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Yom Kippur

It is almost the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippurim. We have written a few posts on this appointed time before, the most important being the post about what we are to do on Yom Kippurim. We are commanded to afflict our beings on this day, and if you use Scripture to interpret Scripture, clearly we are indeed to fast and repent on this day. In this post, we would like to focus more on the other part of this day, repentance. We want to show you also why you are to, not only, focus on your personal repentance but to look wider and also repent on behalf of and together as a nation.
