Yom Kippurim is the second of the fall feasts and is also known as the Day of Atonements or the Day of Coverings. It is often said that your fate for the next year is determined and inscribed in the Book of Life on Yom T’ruah and sealed on Yom Kippurim. This is a Babylonian tradition, which has its roots in idolatry. This said, it does make you wonder what this Book of Life, mentioned in Scripture, is all about. What are the implications if your name is, or is not, in it? We shall show you how being inscribed in the Book of Life, will ensure that you are not only part of the remnant at the end of the tribulation, but also how you will not be counted with those who will experience the second death. Please continue reading….you will be glad you did!
During this time of year we hear a lot of discussions as to whether or not we should join in the celebration of Rosh haShanah (Head of the new Year). We all know that Exodus 12:2 specifically tells us that the beginning of the year is in Aviv (spring time). Yet, we hear some very convincing tales as to why the Scriptures actually allows for more than one new year (like we have today – calendar year, fiscal year, school year, etc…) In this article I will proof to you that the Scriptures only refer to one new year and it is not Rosh haShanah on 1 Tishri!
