Temptation is something every one of us has to deal with on a regular basis. We are YHVH’s children and for this reason, satan will not rest, but will constantly attempt to lure us away into his kingdom of darkness and sin.

We need to have a strategy in place to protect us from falling into temptation.

We do this in the form of a proclamation, because we are commanded to make a procalmation on this day. This short article is to explain the motivation behind this and how we do it.
