Atonement has been made, not just for a year but forever; not just for Israel but for all who will believe. We have been and will always be forgiven by God’s grace through faith.
The most holy and solemn of all the feasts of the Lord is the Day of Atonement, (Yom Kippur in Hebrew). “Feast” is definitely a misnomer because the Jewish people fast from sundown to sundown.
