ACHAREI  MOT (after the death of Aaron’s sons)/ KEDOSHIM (sacred ones)

Call to Repentance

Leviticus 16:1 And יהוה spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron when they offered sacrifices before יהוה and died; 2 And יהוה said to Moses, speak to Aaron your brother, so that he does not come at all times into the sacred place within the veil before the mercy seat which is upon the Ark, so that he should not die: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat. C-MATS

Question: When was the first Yom Kippur? When Moses came back from Sinai with the Second Tablets of the Law, that day became ordained as Yom Kippur, the eternal day of forgiveness. Chumash

Question: Why was Yom Kippur important? Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) is on the seventh month, tenth day and is set up to atone for the accidental and unknown sins of את congregation. Notice the placement of the את throughout the chapter in regard to the atoning blood of the bull and in regard to the two goats. These animals and what they will accomplish are extensions of את Messiah’s presence upon them once they are consecrated and set apart for without את Yahusha presence on the sacrifices they cannot be presented to יהוה Father. C-MATS

Question: What does the biblical name for the Day of Atonement mean? Day of Atonement is Yom HaKippurim, meaning “the day of covering, canceling, pardon, reconciling.” Occasionally, it was called “the Day of the Fast” or “the Great Fast” (Leviticus [Vayikra] 23:27-31; 16:29-34). יהוה told the Israelites to sacrifice an animal as a substitute for their own sentence to die. This life for a life principle is the foundation of the sacrificial system. Chumash

Question: How did Yahusha fulfill Day of Atonement? Yahusha died on the stake as a substitute for us, who deserved death because we sinned against יהוה. Yahusha paid the ransom price for us to יהוה (Mark 10:45; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 1 Corinthians 6:20; 7:23). The ransom price was 30 pieces of silver (Exodus [Shemot] 21:32; Matthew [Mattityahu] 26:14-16; 27:3-6). C-MATS
