Yom Kippur - Day of Attonement

Chag Sameach Mispacha in the Emunah!

Yom Kippur - Feast of Attonement

Attonement = Forgiveness = Erasing of Sins

Leviticus 23:27–32
27 “On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall humble your souls and present an offering by fire to YHVH. 28 “You shall not do any work on this same day, for it is a day of atonement, to make atonement on your behalf before YHVH your Elohim. 29 “If there is any person who will not humble himself on this same day, he shall be cut off from his people. 30 “As for any person who does any work on this same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. 31You shall do no work at all. It is to be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. 32It is to be a sabbath of complete rest to you, and you shall humble your souls; on the ninth of the month at evening, from evening until evening you shall keep your sabbath.”

Do we fast or not? http://www.setapartpeople.com/fasting-yom-kippurim

 Check our previous Yom Kippur post http://lchaimpuravida.blogspot.com/2014/09/are-you-ready-early-chag-sameach.html

We believe it is both a fast and a day of blessing others just as Isaiah 58 says. The Fast that YHWH wants. Last year we posted related to that. Fast of ISaiah 58 - Yom Kippur

Chag Sameach Mispacha!
May YHWH bless you and keep you!
May your feast be one of repentance, forgiveness and restoration.

Chag Sameach Teruah! Happy Feast of Blowing of Trumpets.

Lev 23:24 “Speak to the children of Yisraʼĕl, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, a remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a set-apart gathering.

Psa 98:6 With trumpets and the sound of a horn; Raise a shout before יהוה, the Sovereign.

Rev 8:2 And I saw the seven messengers who stand before Elohim, and to them were given seven trumpets.
Rev 8:3 And another messenger came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer, and much incense was given to him, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the set-apart ones upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
Rev 8:4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the set-apart ones, went up before Elohim from the hand of the messenger.
Rev 8:5 And the messenger took the censer, and filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, and thunders, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
Rev 8:6 And the seven messengers who held the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
Rev 8:7 And the first messenger sounded, and there came to be hail and fire mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.
Rev 8:8 And the second messenger sounded, and what looked like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood,
Rev 8:9 and a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
Rev 8:10 And the third messenger sounded, and a great star fell from the heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water,
Rev 8:11 and the name of the star is called Wormwood. And a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.
Rev 8:12 And the fourth messenger sounded, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. And a third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.
Rev 8:13 And I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in mid-heaven, crying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those dwelling upon the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three messengers who are about to sound!”
Rev 9:1  And the fifth messenger sounded, and I saw a star from the heaven which had fallen to the earth. And the key to the pit of the deep was given to it.
Rev 9:2 And he opened the pit of the deep, and smoke went up out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, also the air, because of the smoke of the pit.
Rev 9:3 And out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth, and authority was given to them as the scorpions of the earth possess authority.
Rev 9:4 And it was said to them that they shall not harm the grass of the earth, or any green matter, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of Elohim upon their foreheads.
Rev 9:5 And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but to torture them for five months. And their torture was like the torture of a scorpion when it stings a man.
Rev 9:6 And in those days men shall seek death and shall not find it. And they shall long to die, but death shall flee from them.
Rev 9:7 And the locusts looked like horses prepared for battle, and on their heads were crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.
Rev 9:8 And they had hair like womenʼs hair, and their teeth were like lionsʼ teeth.
Rev 9:9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses running into battle.
Rev 9:10 And they have tails like scorpions, and stings. And in their tails is their authority to harm men five months.
Rev 9:11 And they have over them a sovereign, the messenger of the pit of the deep, whose name in Heḇrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apolluon.
Rev 9:12 The first woe is past. See, two woes are still coming after this.
Rev 9:13 And the sixth messenger sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Elohim,
Rev 9:14 saying to the sixth messenger who had the trumpet, “Release the four messengers, those having been bound at the great river Euphrates.”
Rev 9:15 And the four messengers, those having been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
Rev 9:16 And the number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million, and I heard the number of them.
Rev 9:17 And this is how I saw the horses in the vision and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fiery red, and hyacinth blue, and sulphur yellow. And the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, and smoke, and sulphur.
Rev 9:18 A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the fire and the smoke and the sulphur which came out of their mouths.
Rev 9:19 For the authority of the horses is in their mouth and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents, having heads. And with them they do harm.
Rev 9:20 And the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship the demons, and idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood, which are neither able to see, nor to hear, nor to walk.
Rev 9:21 And they did not repent of their murders, nor of their drug sorceries, nor of their whoring, nor of their thefts.

No matter where you are the King has an appointed time with His servants. His Bride is preparing and the sound of the Trumpet anounces His coming to gather His wise virgins. May our lamps be full of oil. May be be as a perfrect living sacrifice to our Beloved. YHWH bless you and keep you. Y'shua is coming!! Blow the Trumpet! Both sides of the mountain we live heard the Shofar sound today here in South Costa Rica.

 Mar 13:32 But concerning that day and the hour, no one knows, not the angels, those in Heaven, nor the Son, except the Father. Watch! Be wakeful, and pray. For you do not know when the time is.

Our family lives by faith alone and are blessed by your prayers and support. Without you will be impossible to continue the journey. Please consider us in your support with your offerings for the poor, widows and orphans. Chag Sameach!!! Love from our servant family taking the Torah of YHWH and the Testimony of Y'shua in south Costa Rica. May YHWH bless you and keep you...

Are you ready? Early Chag Sameach!


The Fall Feasts are approaching and we have been busy all year preparing, working, planting, sowing, etc.. We may have loss sense on time as another cycle comes around. Time is flying and it seems like the days have gone and we are stuck thinking, "What about us?". "Why are we here?", "How much did we grow or fall this year?" Homeschooling, work, leisure, worries can take our focus from remaining clean.These are His Moedim, His Appointed Times to come back to balance and refocus our relationship with Abba YHWH. Times of Awareness in Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) The Bridegroom is Coming!! Then it is the Appointment of Cleansing in Yom Kippur (Feast of Atonement) and them the Season of our Joy, the Rehearsal of the Wedding of the Lamb in Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). It might seem like it is hard to do but if we love Him and Keep His commandments He will send us a Helper, the Ruach Emet. Not to be saved but because we will be saved. Yeshua came but has not Returned.

Yochanan/John 14:15-17 
“If you love Me, you shall guard My commands(Torah). 
“And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever - 
 the Spirit/Ruach of the Truth/Emet, whom the world is unable to receive, 
because it does not see Him or know Him. 
But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you.

Then we seek YHWH and say daddy, "What have I done wrong?, please forgive me."
 This we want to focus on and a point of view in the video below. 

Yeshayahu/Isaiah 1:16-20
 “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from 
before My eyes. Stop doing evil!  “Learn to do good! 
Seek right-ruling, reprove the oppressor, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.  
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says יהוה. “Though your sins are like scarlet, 
they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.  
“If you submit and obey, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel,
 you shall be devoured by the sword,” for the mouth of יהוה has spoken.

 A time in the year called "MOED" or "Appointed Time" is like a "Date" 
with our King where He will give us the chance to plead and afflict ourselves 
for turning from the Way He has set for us. See, as a Good Father, Shepherd,...
He has given us instructions and a set of "Moedim" or "Appointed Times" 
where those who come to Him, when He said to come, have the choice of Teshuvah - Repentance. This day is called Yom Kippurim or Day of Atonement (Atonement means forgiveness, 
erasing, casting out).  We are called out to keep the feast through all our generations...

Vayikra/Leviticus 23:27-32
"On the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a set-apart 
gathering for you. And you shall afflict your beings, and shall bring an offering
 made by fire to יהוה. “And you do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, 
to make atonement for you before יהוה your Elohim.  “For any being who is not afflicted 
on that same day, he shall be cut off from his people.  “And any being who does any 
work on that same day, that being I shall destroy from the midst of his people.  
“You do no work – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 
‘It is a Sabbath of rest to you, and you shall afflict your beings. 
On the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you observe your Sabbath.” 
This day set before we were born for a yearly cleansing. 
Remember the Wedding of the Lamb? Well we must have our garments ready.

Hazon/Revelations 19:7-9 
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him praise, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, 
and His wife prepared herself.” And to her it was given to be dressed in fine linen, 
clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the set-apart ones. 
And he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who have been called to the marriage
 supper of the Lamb!ʼ ” And he said to me, “These are the true words of Elohim.” 

See soon and very soon we are going to see our King, our Savior. He will purify us with fire. He wants us clean and free from impurities. He wants us to Teshuvah/Repent before the actual Trumpet sounds because He loves us and desires us to walk with Him. But He is a Jealous Elohim and shares His glory with no other. He is all love and also consuming fire. He is a Righteous Judge. Are we wise enough to get ready? Not just the Lamp (Torah) but the Oil (Ruach) and the garments (righteousness-good deeds-right actions). Can we say early Chag Sameach Yisra'EL! We have so much to do and so little time. Let's get ready. 

Ephesians 5:25-27 
Husbands, love your wives, as Messiah also did love the assembly and gave Himself for it,
 in order to set it apart and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, 
(1 Footnote: 1Rev. 19:8-9) in order to present it to Himself a splendid assembly, 
not having spot or wrinkle or any of this sort, but that it might be set-apart and blameless.
