Yom Kippurim and the sins of our fathers
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?
Y’shua in Prophecy – Part 4 – A Guilt Offering
When you read that Y’shua rendered Himself as a guilt offering in Isaiah 53:10, have you considered why specifically a guilt offering? Why not a sin offering or a peace offering, for example? Is it even important? In this study, we shall show you the significance of Y’shua being, specifically, a guilt offering. It is so amazing and confirms once again that YHVH had a plan from the beginning. We can trust Him, He’s got everything under control!
Yom Kippurim…a call of repentance to the nation
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.
What does it mean to be redeemed? – Redemption – Part 3
Have you ever thought about what it means to be redeemed? Y’shua as our Kinsman redeemer, redeemed us. How did He do this? We have learned that He paid the redemption price by sacrificing His life. However, how do we reconcile this with the Torah that forbids human sacrifice (Lev 18:21; Deut 18:10-13)? We shall show you through this study how Y’shua atoned for us without being a literal human sacrifice. This is one of the points that anti-missionaries often use to trip believers up. It is therefor important for you to study this too and to share it with others. Without knowledge of the truth, we are easily deceived. “My people perish due to a lack of knowledge…”
