Atonement 2015 - September 23
"Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished" (Revelation 20:1-3).
The Day of Atonement pictures an essential additional step in God's salvation plan that must take place before humanity can experience true peace on earth. All people suffer the tragic consequences of sin; this Holy Day symbolizes the day when its true source is exposed and removed from humanity.
