Watch Focus: Yom Kippur—The Day of Atonement

FRIDAY, Sept 18, 2015 We are in the period of the 10 Days of Awe in preparation of the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. We give honor to Jesus Christ for the expiation of our sins and the salvation of our souls through the Day of Atonement. This day only happens once per year, signifying that Christ died once for us, the Just for the unjust, to bring us to the heavenly Father. As our High Priest, He offered His blood within the veil, making atonement for the sins of all (Lev. 16:29). Only then could the Trumpet of the Jubilee sound forth on the Tenth day of the Seventh month. May we set aside this week to spend quality time in His presence, and honor the atoning work of our High Priest, Jesus.  May we humble our souls before the awesomeness of the shed blood of Calvary by which we have access to the throne of grace. Let us enter boldly through Jesus’ precious blood to obtain grace and favor for ourselves, our children, and others who need His divine touch of mercy. Now we can enter into rest and cry out for mercy, revival, restoration, and refreshing for our nation and hungry souls from every nation. May there be a turnaround. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob protect our nation. We pray for Israel and all our Jewish friends across the world, that they may experience the blessing of God also. Let us pray for God's continued divine protection for Israel as Iran continues to seek Israel's destruction through obtaining nuclear weapons.

Lev. 16:29-30, "This shall be a statute forever for you: In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether a native of your own country or a stranger who dwells among you. For on that day the priest shall make atonement for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before theLord."

Heb. 4:16, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Rev. 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

Heb. 12:24, “Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.”

Lev. 23:26-32; Lev. 16:5-34; 2 Chron. 7:14

On this Labor Day weekend, we speak blessings upon the American worker and upon our economy. We pray for those seeking jobs or starting new businesses.
We remember fellow believers who are oppressed and tortured for Christ’s sake. In communist China, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and other parts of the word, violent radicals or oppressive communism continue to persecute and even murder Christians.
We thank God and pray for our law enforcement. We ask the Lord for their safety and guidance as the carry out their duties with integrity.
As our children return to school, we cover them in prayer. Whether they attend public school, private school, home school, or college, we pray a special anointing over them.
There is a declaration of war in our culture against the identity of our children. Our foundational values and the preservation of identity for individuals and families through Christ as the building block of society is under attack.
