October 11: The Fall Feasts

Bore and carried away sin

The first goat bore the sins of the people, but the second goat carried them away and into the wilderness. 

Leviticus 16:20-22

“And when he has made an end of atoning for the Holy Place, the tabernacle of meeting, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat. Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man. The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness.

The word translated as “bear” comes from the Hebrew root נָשָׂא nasa’ which means to lift or to carry off.  It is also used in Isaiah 53:4 which is part of the most clear description of the atoning sacrifice of Messiah Yeshua.

Isaiah 53:4

Surely He has borne our griefs
 and carried our sorrows.

The word translated as “borne” comes from the Hebrew root נָשָׂא nasa’  and the word translated as “carried” comes from the Hebrew root סָבַל cabal which means to bear a heavy load or to drag oneself along.

Yeshua lifted our sins from us and dragged the heavy load Himself to the cross.

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM AND THAT ISRAEL WILL RECOGNIZE THE SACRIFICE OF YESHUA.
