Yom Kippur…The Holiness of God unveiled in You

Archbishop Audrey Drummonds, Ph.D. • Holiness
Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, is the moment in time, once a year, when the High Priest of the Old Testament would take the blood sacrifice of a goat into the Holy of Holiness for the redemption of sin for all the people of God. It is a moment when Eternity meets time in the earth.

Yom Kippur…The Holiness of God unveiled in You


Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, is the moment in time, once a year, when the High Priest of the Old Testament would take the blood sacrifice of a goat into the Holy of Holiness for the redemption of sin for all the people of God. It is a moment when Eternity meets time in the earth.

The doctrines of the church teach this as being a fulfillment at Passover in the spring when Jesus was crucified on the cross. This is a partial truth that does not meet the fullness of what truly was fulfilled by Jesus at the cross. They have failed to bring in the inclusiveness of the fall feasts of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Tabernacles into the inheritance of the church when Jesus cried out from the cross, "It IS FINISHED" (John 19:30). They have failed to establish that what Jesus accomplished was once and for ALL, whether people received the blessing or not. The work was finished, the price of eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil by man was paid. The Tree was cut to the root, and Jesus said it would never bear fruit again. The options for the church was to be the Fruit of the Tree of Life or the "other trees" in the garden, but NOT the Tree of Knowledge (Genesis 2:9).

The fulfillment of the spring feasts of the Lord are the pathway of one's renewed birth that they are a child of God in the earth as they were with God before they were conceived in their mother's womb (Jeremiah 1:5, Psalm 139). This is one's Passover experience from death to Life of their spirit. The renewed awaking that they are no longer bound to the chains of death, but free to come into the presence of their Heavenly Father once again without guilt or shame of the accuser that hangs in the Tree of Knowledge.

After being born again (John 3:16) there is a pathway journey of fifty days from Passover to Pentecost for the soul of man to be led by the Spirit of God. It is this experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit that brings the child of God into the awakening of growth as a son/daughter of God willing to be about the Father's business while in the natural body. Unfortunately, this pathway has become a doctrine of traditions instead of a journey one day at a time experiencing Jesus AS the resurrection Life. Instead, the church has justified that if one can speak in tongues they have the gift of the Holy Spirit to do the Father's business. They may have the manifestation, but they don't have the experience.

After this experience comes the understanding of a corporate oneness, not an individual foot in the door to heaven for there is only one God, one Father, one Spirit, one Son, and one body. Within the Son's body are many members that must cast down their imagination of doctrines and traditions allowing only the King of kings and Lord of lords to be heard. The KING – Jesus Christ – hears from the heavens, and the earth responds by what the heavens hear (Hosea 2:21). The heavens are within us, the heart of the Father where He Tabernacles with men.

"I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is within men, and He will dwell in them, and they shall be His people, and God himself shall be in them" (Revelation 21:3).

This is where the moment of truth comes, the blowing of the Trumpets awakening the ten virgins that have been asleep while waiting for the bridegroom to come at the midnight hour (Matthew 25). Ten is a number that designates a completion of single digit numbers. It is a number that shifts into another realm of thought, responsibility, and oneness. It is made up of two fives: GRACE, GRACE which each virgin received at Passover, but five of them did not have enough oil, anointing of the Holy Spirit in them. The five that had plenty for themselves could not give away their experience of how they were filled with oil, but to tell them the pathway they went through and send the other virgins back to Passover to begin counting the Omer, the narrow pathway of Resurrection LIFE experience to Pentecost one day at a time. This is a spiritual honeymoon of learning and understanding what took place with Jesus AFTER He rose from the grave, but before He ascended to the Father. He has the keys to death, hell, and the grave (Revelation 1:18), which He desires to impart for us to do greater works in the earth than He did, but He must be sure if our heart is His throne, or does it belong to another? Do we see His throne of glory someday or Now while our heart pulsates with words that could produce Life or Death (Proverbs 18:21)?

Yom Kippur is the wedding feast of the Lord to His Beloved Bride that has made herself ready to take on His NAME, HIS NATURE, and HIS IDENTITY in the EARTH filling the earth with HIS GLORY as the waters cover the seas of being tossed to and fro by the winds of time. THIS is a corporate BRIDE, not one person. IT is a body, an assembly, called the CHURCH as His QUEEN and BRIDE-male and female Adam (Genesis 5:1). She no longer calls Him Savior, Master, or Lord, but Husband (Hosea 2:16) so that together, the Spirit and the Bride say COME (Revelation 22:17).

One day is as a thousand years unto God, and a thousand years is as one day (2 Peter 3:8). The coming of Christ Jesus is here in His body. Arise and shine for the glory of Zion is here.

"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.  See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.  Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the hip.  Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come" (Isaiah 60:1-5).
