He covers me there with His Hand . . .

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls:  for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul.
Leviticus (Vayikra) 17:11
We’ve talked about how the Hebrew word for ‘gospel’ or ‘good news’ is the word ‘basar’( bet shin resh) and ‘basar’ is also the word for ‘flesh’ . . . and the connection ? The ‘good news’ is that Messiah has come in the flesh to redeem our souls from the sins of the flesh.
“ . . . for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of GOD is eternal life through Messiah Yeshua . . .”  Romans 6:23
 . . .the life of the flesh is in the blood . . .
This is a two-fold statement. It is obviously true in the physical . . . but also in another way in the spiritual. For not only is the ‘life of the flesh’
-basar – in the blood physically, but also the ‘life of the gospel’ – basar –
is in the Blood.
For without the shedding of blood, there can be no remission of sin. 
Hebrews 9:22
. . . but not just any ‘blood’ . . .
but with His own Blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.  Heb 9:12
 Lev. 23 : 27 ” . . . the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a special called assembly for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.
28 “And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God.
31 “You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
32 “It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath.”
Why ? Because Messiah Yeshua went to the cross for me and HE did not have to  . . .
Can I do any less than what He has asked ?   Blessings –
