The word Atonement is used 105 times in the New International version of the English Bible and there is a special Sabbath declared in the Scriptures designated or titled Atonement. The people of Jewish faith or religion call the English word Atonement Yom Kippur and some consider it the holiest day of the year. The Jews hold solemn services of fasting and praying, believing that they will be forgiven for their sins and hope to be reconciled with their God, whose true name they refuse to use.
One of the definitions in Webster’s dictionary for Atonement is reconciliation while another is: a making up for an offense or injury.
In general, Christians don’t have an Atonement service instead believing their prayers asking the Creator for forgiveness of their sins and believing the death of the Messiah was an act of supreme love by the almighty Creator, giving his sons physical life to wash away their sins. Christians mostly believe that the Sabbaths commanded by the Creator in the Old Testament are not required to be honored by them because the Sabbaths were part of the Mosaic law of the Old Testament, done away with by the death of the Messiah.
It does seem peculiar that there are so many religions in the world, with each religious group believing that their beliefs are correct and everyone else is wrong. What makes these incongruent ideas mystifying is that the majority of people who hold these beliefs don’t study the basis for their beliefs themselves, instead taking as truth the teaching of a few scholars, ministers, theologians, priests, and rabbis who themselves don’t have substantiated agreement on religious beliefs.
Logically, it would make sense if there really is one Supreme Creator Almighty powerful being that does exist, he then would provide proof of his existence. Read YNCA’s article “Proofs of the Creator”. Logically an Almighty Creator would somehow provide instructions on why he created humans and what purpose his creation serves as well as the end result of physical humans who have a limited lifespan.
Why would an almighty, all powerful Supreme Being allow humans, capable of thought, develop such diverse religious beliefs some even leading to wars and violence? Would it be logical for a Supreme Being to allow humans to harm other humans who don’t hold the same beliefs? Yet, just a cursory look at the history of humans it is evident that people sometimes hate other people who believe differently concerning religions.
These apparent divergent beliefs lead to disharmony among people, some even lead to wars and millions of deaths, certainly they don’t appear to be consistent with the message of some of these religions teach of peace, love, harmony and in some cases eternal life surly can’t be what a true loving Supreme Being would want in his creation.
The behavior of humans with regard to religious beliefs is inharmonious and certainly does not seem to be logical and/or is implausible. These human actions seem to be in conflict with the creation itself which mathematicians and physicists are just now learning that creation is extremely logical and that all of creation is based on mathematic formulas. Read “Is God A Mathematician?” by Mario Livio.
Since it is apparent in creation itself that the Supreme Creator Being (Who does have a name and has told humans to use his name) is logical then illogical acts performed by humans are the results of illogical thoughts by those same humans. In plain English, people are responsible for their illogical thoughts and acts. If they were to study the Hebrew Scriptures placed in the English Bible and learn to heed the Creators words they would realize that man has ignored and disregarded the Scriptures and twisted the Commands of the Creator Yahweh and have mislead millions of others into not following the instructions of Yahweh which leads to serious consequences. Read YNCA’s article “The Lying Pens of the Scribes”
Yahweh has given written instructions to humankind, through the scriptures, assembled in a book called the Bible. The scriptures have been written by many men over centuries and these men are consistent in their message. The English Bible, while fairly accurate, it does have some serious errors (made by man). A more accurate reading of the Scriptures in the Hebrew and Greek languages will allow for a better understanding of the Scriptures which are called the book of life by the Messiah, falsely called Jesus, a Biblical error.
5 He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels.
Yahweh has given people his instructions on how he wants them to live their lives and what the reward would be for those who follow his laws and what the result would be for those who broke his laws. He also gave humans freewill, to decide for themselves what their future will be.
People decide their own future
When Yahweh created mankind, he had a specific purpose in mind for humans and while the plan is complex for people to understand, never the less, Yahweh gave his purpose for people to understand in writing:
2 Cor 6:18
18 “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
Imagine that, an almighty being has told humans that he made them to be his sons and daughters. Of course, the Scriptures are complex and the rules are complex but, the Almighty Yahweh has created people so he can be their father. While Yahweh created humans to possibly be in his family a brother or sister to his only spiritual Son, certain conditions apply.
Tribes of Israel an example
The tribes of Israel are prominent in the Old Testament and these tribes serve as witnesses to people around the world, even though most don’t realize the role of Israel, not even the members of the tribes of Israel. In YNCA articles, the role of some Caucasians, specifically those of European ancestry has been explained as important in world history and Bible prophecy because these Caucasians are likely descendants of the tribes of Israel. By reading and studying the scriptures the example of the tribes of Israel as witnesses for Yahweh can be learned.
Most people think the Jews are the only existing tribe of Israel existing in the world, but Yahweh promised Abraham his descendants would be scattered throughout the nations Genesis, 17: 3-6. He also declared that through Jacob, the tribes would have certain characteristics which would help identify them. Read YNCA’s article “Why is Israel Important in the Bible?”
In 1st Corinthians chapter 10 verses 6-11 the apostle Paul explains that when the Israelites were disobedient to Yahweh they suffered and some of their lives were ended by Yahweh. Yahweh promised the tribes of Israel they would become a nation of priests if they were obedient to his rules.
This is what you are to say to the house of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel: 4 ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. 5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6 you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”
The Israelites did not follow Yahweh’s laws and therefore disqualified themselves from becoming a nation of priests in the kingdom of Yahweh. The same fate will also happen to people who do not follow Yahweh’s laws even though their religious leaders have told them they no longer need to heed the laws of Yahweh. People will disqualify themselves from being in the family of Yahweh if they disobey his laws in spite of the teachings of their ministers and priests.
If the Jews practice Yom Kippur to atone for their sins and the Christians reconcile with Yahweh through the blood sacrifice of the Messiah, which one is correct? How can the Jews be saved if they don’t accept the death of the Messiah Yahshua as atonement for their sins and how can Christians be saved, many of whom are descendants of the tribes of Israel, without knowing their identity and don’t follow the rules of Yahweh to receive eternal life in the Kingdom of Yahweh?
Neither the Jews nor Christians use the true name of the Father thus breaking a commandment which must be kept along with accepting the death of the Messiah for the Atonement of their sins to achieve eternal life.
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
The Name of Elohim is not Lord or God, it is Yahweh! It is a commandment and it cannot be changed for anyone to receive life in the Kingdom of Yahweh. Read YNCAs article “I AM YAHWEH”
If you want more evidence read Acts chapter 4 verse 12:
8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! 9 If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, 10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 He is “‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone.’
12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
No other Name
This is vitally important; the name Peter used to heal the sick man on the Sabbath was not Jesus Christ as the English Bible versions proclaim! Read YNCA’s article “I AM YAHWEH” and “The Mistaken J”
The short version of this claim is that there is not now or ever been a J letter or sound in the Greek, Hebrew or Aramaic languages. Therefore, when Peter proclaimed that there is no other name by which men can be saved, he could not have said the false name Jesus. Even if Peter Spoke English, which was not a language at that time, there was no J in any language until the mid-1500s.
Atonement will be a terrible time
In the Old Testament, the Israelites were given instructions on keeping certain special or high Sabbaths each one signifying a special event or time. One of those Sabbaths is Atonement which is to take place once a year.
“This is to be a lasting ordinance for you: On the tenth day of the seventh month you must deny yourselves and not do any work — whether native-born or an alien living among you — 30 because on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. Then, before the Lord, you will be clean from all your sins. 31 It is a Sabbath of rest, and you must deny yourselves; it is a lasting ordinance.
Each Year the Israelites were to hold a feast of Trumpets and Feast of Ingathering or Booths at the end of the year, based on the Agrarian calendar which marked time by the growth and harvesting of crops. In between the Feast of Trumpets and Feast of Ingathering comes the Day of Atonement. These feasts are very significant, they prophesize a future event that will take place on Earth, fulfilling the scriptures.
The Scriptures are filled with symbols and figurative words which will require study to understand the meanings they represent. The trumpet is used in Scripture to symbolize a warning or to declare the beginning of warfare. The Feast of Trumpets is a symbol for the time of war that is coming to Earth, caused by humankind’s disobedience to Yahweh’s commands.
13 The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the horns of the golden altar that is before God. 14 It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.
18 A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths. 19 The power of the horses was in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails were like snakes, having heads with which they inflict injury
In the book of Revelations, the Apostle John was given a vision of a huge war to take place at the sound of the sixth trumpet. A third of mankind will be killed in this war by fire, smoke, and sulfur. These troops are likely just the beginning of the terrible time coming to Earth because only a third of mankind will be killed by these troops. The scriptures foretell that almost all the earth’s population will be killed in war before the return of the Messiah Yahshua returns to set up his government on Earth.
The prophet Joel also prophesied about the coming war to Earth his words can only be for a future war because there has never been a war like what he prophesied that is coming and there will never be another war as destructive.
2 Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble,
for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand — 2 a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains
a large and mighty army comes, such as never was of old nor ever will be in ages to come.
The coming war appears to begin with large numbers of troops that conquer cities and destroy the lands they attack.
3 Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste — nothing escapes them.
The attacking troops that will invade the United States (Israel tribe of Manasseh) will also have allies that will attack Jerusalem (tribe of Judah) and for a while it will seem that the tribes of Israel Ephraim and Judah will appear to be losing and many of the inhabitants of the Earth will begin to celebrate the defeat of the tribes of Israel, however Yahweh will intervene and the tide will turn. Jerusalem will be overrun but, things change and the nations that are listed in Ezekiel chapter 39 suffer a disastrous defeat. There are many writers that conclude that the nations of Gog and Magog are Russia, China, and surrogate nations. It does appear that only a coalition of Russia and China might believe they could defeat the US and Great Britain in a war and are appearing to challenge the US and Great Britain on many fronts in the 21 first century, including military and economic issues around the world.
No matter the identity of the nations that attack the tribes of Israel they will be destroyed when Yahweh intervenes on behalf of his two witnesses Ephraim and Judah. It appears in the scriptures that the war will escalate to a nuclear war, from the description of the plague that will befall those nations that attack the Tribes of Israel.
12 This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 13 On that day men will be stricken by the Lord with great panic. Each man will seize the hand of another, and they will attack each other. 14 Judah too will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected — great quantities of gold and silver and clothing. 15 A similar plague will strike the horses and mules, the camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.
The description of the troops of the nations that attack Jerusalem indicates flesh, both human and animal will be destroyed in an instant, the same as nuclear destruction. There will be no flesh left of humans or animals of the nations that attack Jerusalem perhaps only their bones which the remnants left in Israel will spend years burying.
“‘On that day I will give Gog a burial place in Israel, in the valley of those who travel east toward the Sea. It will block the way of travelers, because Gog and all his hordes will be buried there. So it will be called the Valley of Hamon Gog.
12 “‘For seven months the house of Israel will be burying them in order to cleanse the land. 13 All the people of the land will bury them, and the day I am glorified will be a memorable day for them, declares the Sovereign Lord.
14 “‘Men will be regularly employed to cleanse the land. Some will go throughout the land and, in addition to them, others will bury those that remain on the ground. At the end of the seven months they will begin their search. 15 As they go through the land and one of them sees a human bone, he will set up a marker beside it until the gravediggers have buried it in the Valley of Hamon Gog. 16 (Also a town called Hamonah will be there.) And so they will cleanse the land.’
The remnant of Israel will realize they have been spared just as the Scriptures predicted and will loath themselves and repent of their sins. This is the time period the Day of Atonement symbolizes before the remnant is gathered to the Promised Land a second time.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
Yahweh is very clear, in the Scriptures, the tribes of Israel will be placed a second time on the land Yahweh promised to the descendants of Abraham through Jacob and Isaac and to be sure this is not time Israel entered Egypt in the days of Jacobs life the remnant of Israel will be gathered from the four corners of the Earth after a war, this has never occurred.
Jer 30:10-1110 “‘
So do not fear, O Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed, O Israel,’ declares the Lord. ‘I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security, and no one will make him afraid. 11 I am with you and will save you,’ declares the Lord. ‘Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you but only with justice. I will not let you go entirely unpunished.’
The world will be a completely different place after the nations of Gog and Magog, Russia and China, with their allied nations attack the United States, Great Britain and Israel. All the nations in the entire world will be destroyed and a remnant of the tribes of Israel, survivors, will be gathered and returned to the Promised Land in the Middle East.
Remember the Israelites have disobeyed Yahweh for centuries, but Yahweh will keep his promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and place their descendants on the land promised to Abraham by Yahweh. It’s not that the Israelites have not been told about their future because Yahweh has detailed for them in writing, in the Scriptures, their sins and the consequences of their disobedience. In the writings of at least six of the prophets Yahweh has given details of the sins of Israel, the displacement of the Israelites, the future war that will destroy much of the Earth and many Israelites, the saving of a remnant of Israelites, a return of the remnant of Israelites to the Promised land, and a future of peace, joy, and prosperity for the Israelites. But, none of this will occur until the Israelites atone for their sins and disobedience to Yahweh Elohim. This is what the Day of Atonement symbolizes. It symbolizes a period of time after the great world war that destroys the nations of the world, kills two thirds of the earth’s population that is forewarned by the Feast of Trumpets. The Day of Atonement takes place after the Feast of Trumpets and before the Feast of Ingathering. The Feast of Ingathering symbolizes when the remnant of Israelites that survive the war at The Feast of Trumpets will be returned to the Promised Land.
7 Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.
In the Old Testament scriptures, Yahweh revealed his plans for Israel and Judah, both short term and long term through his prophets. Four of his prophets that had revealed to them major prophesies revealed were Isaiah, Jerimiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel that lived in the time when the ten northern tribes of Israel were captured and carried to Assyria and the tribe of Judah was captured and sent to Babylon.
These four prophets were given revelations about the distant future of Israel that are recorded in scriptures concerning the future of both the ten northern tribes under the label of the lead tribe Ephraim and separately the tribe of Judah. The revelations were explicit concerning the future of all the tribes of Israel and are significant to the world today because they predict in some detail the disasters and blessings that will befall the nation of Israel and other nations that exist when the great war of tribulation occurs.
Ezekiel predicted a remnant of the tribes of Israel will be gathered from around the world and placed back on land in the Middle East and he described in detail where each tribe will live on the land in the Middle East, an event that has not yet occurred; Ezk. chapters 44,45 and 48. He described in detail the temple to be built in the future giving dimensions and even details of the ornamentation; Ezk. chapters 40-42. He also gave a prediction (prophecy) of the loathing of themselves will feel when they realize the disasters of death and destruction they have brought upon themselves by their flagrant disobedience of Yahweh Elohim.
24 “‘For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. 25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. 28 You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be my people, and I will be your God. 29 I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and make it plentiful and will not bring famine upon you. 30 I will increase the fruit of the trees and the crops of the field, so that you will no longer suffer disgrace among the nations because of famine. 31 Then you will remember your evil ways and wicked deeds, and you will loathe yourselves for your sins and detestable practices. 32 I want you to know that I am not doing this for your sake, declares the Sovereign Lord. Be ashamed and disgraced for your conduct, O house of Israel!
The tribes of Israel will have committed grievous sins and many will die throughout the nations of the world along with non-Israelites. The remnant that will be returned to Israel over time will be punished for their sins although not with immediate death.
28 Do not fear, O Jacob my servant, for I am with you,” declares the Lord. “Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you but only with justice; I will not let you go entirely unpunished.”
Notice carefully Yahweh proclaimed something through the prophet Ezekiel that is vitally important to the tribes of Israel and all human kind. In chapter 36 verse 32 Yahweh proclaims to the world that he will not save Israel because they deserve to be saved by being obedient to Yahweh:
22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. 23 I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Sovereign Lord, when I show myself holy through you before their eyes.
Many people will have read the English version of the Bible and will believe that the name of Yahweh is Lord and God, which is not only incorrect but a lie. Read YNCA’s article “The Biggest Lie Ever Told is in The Bible”
The false name Jesus is proclaimed throughout the world, yet the Scriptures very clearly proclaim, with study of the Hebrew and Greek versions of The Scriptures, that the name of the Messiah is Yahshua. No one will be saved from eternal death unless they believe and confess the correct names of the Father and Son.
There are those who will not die in the coming deadly war that is soon coming. You can learn more by reading YNCA’s article “Firstfruits Most Important People Ever”.
Yahweh has warned the Israelites and the world that he does not want his Holy Name profaned and there will be deadly consequences for those who disobey him.
31 “Keep my commands and follow them. I am the Lord. 32 Do not profane my holy name
7 “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

If the Earth’s population continues to follow the teaching of false religious leaders, the remnant of people that are not killed in the great coming world war will go through a time of suffering. They will recognize their sins and begin to try and atone for their sins while witnessing the example of the remnant of Israel loathing themselves for their disobedience to Yahweh when Israel finally realizes they brought this on themselves.
