Most modern dictionaries have the word ‘atonement’ to mainly mean to make amends or as a reparation for a wrong doing or an infringing act, that is as a reparation to redress or correct a wrong or an infringement. Aside from other meanings, many dictionaries also have the meaning of ‘atonement’ or ‘atone’ in the “Christian” religious context to carry the meaning of the reconciliation of humankind to GOD through the sacrificial death of JESUS CHRIST.
The Significance Of The Day Of Atonement In The Christian Faith And Covenant
These are all recorded in the Christian Holy Scriptures and that is also the reason almost the entirety of those who professed the Abrahamic religions don't believe it. In fact few even know that this was what the Christian Holy Scriptures recorded and taught, even as this had been clearly and plainly recorded in these Scriptures which began to be available for all to see since some two thousand years ago. The whole of humankind are been screwed between science and religions. While science has been micro and tunnel focused on process and mechanics and deliberately refuses to understand purpose, false religions have been micro focused on instances of purpose and deliberately refuse to understand process.
They Are Blest Who Are Forgiven
"They are blest who are forgiven, To whom God impute no sin;
"Many sorrows have the wicked, Who know not the way of God.
"Day and night God's hand was on me, And I groaned till I confessed.
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
When I kept silent, my bones grew old
Through my groaning all the day long.
For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah
I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I have not hidden.
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.
You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.
Do not be like the horse or like the mule,
Which have no understanding,
Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle,
Else they will not come near you.
Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
