JESUS - THE PERFECT LAMB PDF Print

“And it shall be a statute to you forever that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict yourselves and shall do no work, either the native or the stranger who sojourns among you.  For on this day shall atonement be made for you to cleanse you.  You shall be clean before the Lord from all your sins.”     Leviticus 16:29–30 ESV

Yesterday, on the tenth day of the seventh month called Tishrei, Israel celebrated that mysterious moment . . . Yom Kippur.

This day was set aside on Israel’s calendar as a day of forgiveness for the entire nation.  The High Priest would first prepare himself and then make his annual, solemn journey into the “Holy of Holies.”  This was a continuous cycle that expressed to this nation of “would be priests” that final and effectual forgiveness could never be accomplished with mere blood from bulls and rams. 

Something else must take place . . .  Someone else must intervene . . .

That something else was the coming of Messiah.  Jesus became the propitiation or mercy seat for Israel’s sins – and praise God – ours as well!

The blood of endless sacrifices are no longer required – for the perfect Lamb was slain!

“All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.”  Revelation 13:8 NIV

Our God’s intent has always been – from the very beginning – to save!

– Dale
