During the annual moâ€™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 familyâ€™s sin and the sin of the nation. When Yâ€™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 Yâ€™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 Ezekielâ€™s temple vision tells us about this.
In the article that we published last year, we covered the all the basic aspects of the appointed time of Yom Tâ€™Ruah. We looked at the instructions we received for keeping this appointed time and also touched on some of the bad and good traditions of this feast. In this article we will do a study on the prophetic significance of this day for us as believers in Yâ€™Shua the Messiah. We know that all feasts are a picture of things to come and that the first grouping of feasts (spring feasts) were fulfilled at the first coming of the Messiah. The second grouping of feasts (fall feasts) should therefore give us the picture of Yâ€™Shuaâ€™s second coming. As the first feast in this group, Yom Tâ€™Ruah should give us some clues as to what will happen during this second coming.
