Is it a coincidence that a scripture of repentance falls on the day of one of Holiest days of the year?
A Day of Atonement, a Holy day unto the Lord?
Is is a coincidence that this verse aligns with the spirit realm, to celebrate the blood of the lamb? I think not!
It was DESIGNED that way!
This is a day where the lamb of God is celebrated, where God is honored, and reverenced all through out the world, including Israel.
Ok celebrate, but why repent? Glad you asked, because without the repence of sin, there is no forgiveness of sins. without the shedding of blood, the is no remission of sins.
So what does it mean to repent? We hear repent, repent, repent, but what does it actually mean?
Repent is simply an invitation, to make your life right with God. Sin is blocking the way, sin is hindering you from entering into his Holy of Hollies. Sin separates us from God, and we feel distant, the blood makes us right before God, the blood takes away our inequity, and purges us white as snow
Repent is a command to turn from wicked ways, and in turn, serve God Almighty. For he alone is worthy to be praised.
An acknowledgment of sin, a turn around in your actions, words, and behaviour.
On this day, the most holy of days, heaven is celebrating, heaven is throwing a party in honor of the lamb. I imagine a choir of Angels singing unto the glory of God, declaring his majesty, magnifying his name
“Holy, holy, holy are you Lord“
“Oh the blood of Jesus, that washes white as snow.“
Will you align with heaven, and give God glory? Worship him, for who he is in your life, honor him, and praise his holy name!!
Make things right with God! Repent, and change your mind, turn from your wicked, and evil ways, so that your sins may be blotted out, and a time of refreshing may come, from the presence of the Holy God. Reconsile back to the father, through the blood of the lamb.
” So repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God—seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];
ACTS 3:19 AMP
Now you can come into his presence, Boldly, with confidnce, seeking his will, and purpose for your life, bringing your request, and your petition, before the KING of kings, LORD of lords.
Happy Yom Kippur!
