The Torah lays a foundation for God’s provision to forgive sin…atonement.
The Hebrew word used in the following passage is: כָּפַר [kaphar] and means “to cover or to purge.” In the Old Covenant the “covering or purging of sin was necessary for the reconciliation between God and man. The basis of the “atonement” was through a specified sacrifice. The shedding of blood reflected the severity of sin:
‘And whatever man of the house of Israel, or of the strangers who dwell among you, who eats any blood, I will set My face against that person who eats blood, and will cut him off from among his people. For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’
PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO READ AND BELIEVE GOD’S WORD AND NOT THEIR TRADITIONS AND TEACHING OF MAN’S INTERPRETATION.
