Leviticus 23:26-27 

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.

Yom Kippur -also known as “the Day of Atonement”- is a particularly special celebration not only to the Jew, but to the Believer as well. It symbolizes the “affliction of the soul”, the atonement for all the sins of the past year. It started in the Tabernacle of the Wilderness, when God gave this command to Moses for the tabernacle ordinances .

Aaron, the high priest, transferred the sins of the camp onto one goat, then sent the goat into the wilderness, never to be seen again. He then entered the Holy of Holies in just a linen garment, and sprinkled the blood of a second goat onto the Mercy Seat. It only happened once a year, and it atoned for the sins of the entire camp. The people would always have to come back and bring a daily sacrifice if they did something wrong, to make that right between them and God, but this day was special. This day only happened once a year.

It is a symbol of Jesus dying on the cross. The broken piece of bread in the Jew’s celebration of Yom Kippur symbolizes the broken body of Jesus Christ on the cross. This Holiday shouldn’t just be for the Jews, but we should also take a moment to remember the atoning Blood of Jesus Christ. Because of Christ, our sins and healing were purchased and atoned for. He is our sacrifice.

Remember this day, and thank the Lord for what He did for us to stand as the sinless Bride of Jesus Christ.

Now, the Jew, the Yom Kippur, when they take the communion, or the Passover, anyone knows, that's a Jew, and knows that under the lid is a broken piece of kosher. And there's not a Jew that I know of, that I've ever talked to, can explain why that broken piece of kosher. Why, here it is in the confirmation of the covenant, the broken body of Christ, when He broke God from man; He was both God and man. And when He took the Spirit up… And Jesus said, listen, "At that day you will know that I am in the Father, the Father in Me; I in you, and you in Me." It's God in His people! The same God!
