You can not come to God of Israel without blood. So says the Torah. (Law). This Yom Kippur, please confess your faith in the blood of the Lamb of God, Yeshua the Messiah.

The people in modern Israel have no goats to offer, no more blood, no priesthood who can make atonement for sins.

For the next 24 hours the nation of Israel will be brought to a standstill. The Jewish people is called by their religious leaders to drop work, and spend time in prayer. To ask God of Israel to forgive their sins. Today is Yom Kippur, the great day of atonement.

Leviticus 23:27-28

The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves, and present a food offering to the Lord. Do not do any work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before the Lord your God.

The Torah explains only priests can makes atonement. And they must use blood.

The Torah demands blood for the forgiveness of sins.

Leviticus 4:20
and do with this bull just as he did with the bull for the sin offering. In this way the priest will make atonement for the community, and they will be forgiven.

If you have no blood to offer, you will be cut off from communion with God of Israel.

Leviticus 17:11-14
For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. Therefore I say to the Israelites, “None of you may eat blood, nor may any foreigner residing among you eat blood.” “‘Any Israelite or any foreigner residing among you who hunts any animal or bird that may be eaten must drain out the blood and cover it with earth, because the life of every creature is its blood. That is why I have said to the Israelites, “You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off.”

The problem for the Jewish people in 2022, is that they have no blood to offer. The Temple was destroyed 70 A.D, and the priesthood of Aaron ceased to exist. The question that Jewish teachers of the Law of Moses can not answer: Did God break His own law? How can He forgive sins, when there is no atonement done with blood?

Hebrews 9:22
In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

Messianic Judaism has the answer. Read Brit Hadasha, the New Covenant. The Messiah came as the perfect Lamb of God. He was slaughterd for the sins of the World. All Jews can read about Him in the Hebrew bible, in the Book of Isaiah, chapter 53.

Who has believed our message  and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground.He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

He was despised and rejected by mankind,  a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.Like one from whom people hide their faces  he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain  and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;the punishment that brought us peace was on him,  and by his wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way;and the Lord has laid on him  the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted,  yet he did not open his mouth;he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,  and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,  so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested?

For he was cut off from the land of the living;  for the transgression of my people he was punished. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death,though he had done nosuffer,  and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin,he will see his offspring and prolong his days,  and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.

After he has suffered,  he will see the light of life and be satisfied;by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,  and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,  and he will divide the spoils with the strong,because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

In the blood of the Messiah there is atonement for sins. Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus) gave up His life for free, when His blood was shed at Calvary Hill 2.000 years ago. After He died and rose again the Law of blood sacrifice was fulfilled. No need for more atonements. The Messiah is forever our Yom Kippur. Amen.
