***Please note this holy day does not take place on the same day each year on the Gregorian calendar – as the Hebrew calendar does not align with it.
Thus in the year 2022 say, The Day Of Atonement will not take place from Wednesday the 15th of September in the evening until Thursday the 16th at sunset. It will take place on a different day on the Gregorian calendar. ****
Re: The Day Of Atonement (Yom Kippur) 2021.
This evening (Wednesday 15th September 2021), Yom Kippur (The Day Of Atonement) will begin.
It concludes tomorrow (Thursday at evening, sunset).
This day is one of several holy occaisions on the Biblical Holiday calendar, which take place annually.
With one believing in G-d, and also in the risen Messiah (Christ) (ref. Isaiah 50:10, John 14:1) the high priest in the order of Mechizadek (Psalm 45:7, 110:4), who mediates the new covenant (Jeremiah 31:31, Isaiah 42:6, 49:8) – which ultimately means everlasting life without end at resurrection for all who believe (ref. Isaiah 28:16, 28:18, Ephesians 2:20, John 3:14-16);
This is an opportunity for grasshoppers like us (ref. Isaiah 40:22) to observe the commandment (ref. Romans 3:31 ESV, Matthew 5:19-20), and demonstrate our sincere repentance (ref. 1 John 1:8-9) with a full fast and no work for the entirety of Yom Kippur (24+ hours), amongst other things.
This is all undertaken whilst the high priest in the order of Melchizedek intercedes (prays) for us (Isaiah 53:12 ESV, Romans 8:34) in the highest heaven (Hebrews 4:14) where the temple of G-d is (Revelation 14:15-18, 21:22).
The Day Of Atonement In Holy Scripture:
And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Now on the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be for you a time of holy convocation, and you shall afflict yourselves and present a food offering to the LORD. And you shall not do any work on that very day, for it is a Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your GOD. For whoever is not afflicted on that very day shall be cut off from his people. And whoever does any work on that very day, that person I will destroy from among his people. You shall not do any work. It is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict yourselves. On the ninth day of the month beginning at evening, from evening to evening shall you keep your Sabbath.”
Leviticus 23:26-32 ESV
