“G’mar chatima Tova” is Hebrew for the greeting, “may your name be written in the Book of Life”, the traditional greeting during Yom Kippur(Day of Atonement.). Day of Atonement begins Tuesday, October 4th at sundown and continues until Wednesday evening, October 5th at sundown. It is the Highest Holy Day in the Biblical Calendar. First of all Yeshua, is our Atoning Sacrifice, Hebrew 9: 11-15.
Secondly it is the work of Yeshua, King Jesus’ work on the cross that seals our redemption and breaks the yoke of sin and it’s curse.
It was at Yom Kippur Yeshua, King Jesus was Baptized in the Jordan:
“Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms(plural), of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this we will do if God permits.”
We’ve been taught Baptism is a testimony of a inner work. But that is just not all of the reason for Baptism. If that is true, then why was Yeshua, King Jesus Baptized? Because there was no sin in Him. He was the perfect Lamb of God. During Yom Kippur ever Jewish person presented himself for Baptism. They knew that going into water was
BREAKING OFF OF ALL LIMITATIONS
BREAKING OF ALL CURSES BROUGHT ABOUT THROUGH DISOBEDIENCE
BREAKING OF THE FAILURE MINDSET
He came up out of the water and the Holy Spirit rested upon Him. His Father said, “this is my Son whom I am well pleased.”
Every Jewish person believe Messiah would come on Yom Kippur. And He did! At Yom Kippur Yeshua became the Lamb of God and Atonement all man’s sin.
The Mikvah was the Baptismal pool filled with spring fed living water in the Temple. Every priest before they ministered would go into the water, in the Mikvah, including Yeshua.
According to John 3, without being born of water, cutting off all the limitations of the world(earth) womb, you cannot be born of the Spirit.
This Wednesday evening at 5pm in Poplar Bluff, MO. we will baptize people cutting all limitations off of them for the new year, 5783. I challenge you before Wednesday night at sundown to enter into the Mikvah(Baptismal) and allow God to cut off your limitations of this past year and past seven year cycle so you may walk in the blessings of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In Hebraic thought, Wednesday evening God’s book of Life and Book of Record (Revelation 20: 11-15) will be sealed for another year. It is during this 24 hour period God determines for us His Blessing to be poured out in the Biblical New Year 5783
If you have a pool, tank, or even your shower, step into under a tallit/prayer shawl covering. For a couple get under the covering and take time to repent before God and ask for forgiveness then both go under before the Lord cutting off all dead works and curses of the last year/seven years. Include the children.
For the single person do the same before the Lord. Before you go in the pool, water, shower, or tub blow a shofar over the water. The shofar blast represents Ruach Elohim the blast/breath/shout of the Holy Ghost that literally caused the Red Sea to stand up, congeal, and part in two which Pharaoh and his armies where destroyed and Israel was delivered from 400 years enslavement and bondage. 1 Corinthians 10:1-4
If you don’t have a shofar just give a Holy Ghost shout! Blessings and Shalom!
