Blessings on Yom Kippur – He welcomes you!
Welcome! Come in my beloved!
The Yom Kippur card is from The Feasts of Israel Fulfilled Collection. To see the card in its Collection, please click here.
Yom Kippur or The Day of Atonement will be celebrated this year on September 19th and will begin at sunset the evening before.
God appointed seven yearly feasts for the Israelites to observe (found in Leviticus 23) to foretell and foreshadow Jesus’ life, sacrifice, death, burial, resurrection and return!
On Yom Kippur, only the high priest could enter the Holy of Holies in the temple to offer a sacrifice for the sins of the people. A large veil of blue, purple, and crimson linen blocked access to this holy place where God dwelled. (2 Chronicles 3:14). It was a constant reminder that breaking God’s law brought separation from Him.
This yearly sacrifice foreshadowed the Perfect Sacrifice that was to come later. Jesus the Messiah laid down His life for us. He paid the penalty for our sins. “The Lord caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.” (Isaiah 53:6b) He is the Perfect Sacrifice for all people for all time!
At Jesus’ last breath, the veil was torn (Matthew 27:51; Luke 23:45) and opened, and we are welcomed into God’s presence! Our sin was crushed and our redemption secured.
On the Yom Kippur Art-Card, the violet Hebrew words in the center of His light mean welcome or “blessed coming in.”
The deep tones of these ancient blue, purple, and crimson dyes were extracted from the mollusks found along the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
Celebrating with you our freedom in God’s presence!
