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.

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.
If you were to think long and hard about it; you would realize that fasting is actually a mystery. Why would abstaining from food be significant in our spiritual walk and why should we do it and how? Many questions go through my mind; I am certain through yours too. We fast at least one day, every year, because we are commanded to fast on the day of Atonement. That fast is about repentance. So why fast at other times?
I have seen so many articles about Yom Kippurim this past week that my head is spinning! I love these feast times, so much to learn so little time. It sometimes feels like drinking from a fire hose! To get back to the articles; many people seem to be of the opinion that it is not necessary to fast on Yom Kippurim. We understand this differently, WE ARE TO FAST ON YOM KIPPURIM! Don’t just dismiss this article if you are not in agreement, bear with us as we show you YHVH’s truth from His Word, then go forth and share this so that others can learn and apply YHVH’s truth!
