During the annual mo’ed of Yom Kippurim (Day of Atonements), the high priest of Israel had a very special role to play. He had to take the blood of the sin offerings before YHVH to atone for his sin, his family’s sin and the sin of the nation. When Y’shua died and was resurrected, His blood became the atonement for all our sin. So how then is the feast of Atonement/ Coverings changed now that Y’Shua sits on the right hand of YHVH and provides a covering for his bride? We have the book of Hebrews to explain this to us, provided that we have a clear understanding of what the author of Hebrews is trying to tell us. To many of us still have a replacement theology view embedded in our minds when we think about the book of Hebrews. Let us take another look at how all of this comes together and what Ezekiel’s temple vision tells us about this.

We all believe that we should live a righteous life and keep the commandments that YHVH provided for us in His Torah. We also believe that we should love our neighbor as ourselves. If we study the scriptures a bit more we see that this may not be enough. We should learn from Haggai that we need to do more than follow the law. The message that Haggai had to take to the remnant clearly shows that we need to ensure that we are obedient to YHVH and that His will is always our number one priority. Haggai also explains to the people that our responsibility does not stop with our own righteousness. We need to go even further that that.
