This sermon, given on the Day of Atonement, highlights God's invitation to holiness - for some now and to all in the future. The Day of Atonement is a solemn pause before the Feast of Tabernacles and the 8th Day festivals, during which we focus on being at one with God, the restraint of Satan, and the future reconciliation of mankind with God. The symbols of this holy day, including sacrifices, priestly functions, fasting and the meaning of the Jubilee, are discussed. With this understanding, we can have great joy as we recognize how God is preparing us to serve His future children under Jesus Christ.
