Day of Affliction; Part II Seven High Sabbath, Seven Feasts

Listen to Sabbath of Affliction 19 min.

The Sabbath of Affliction

Not to be Confused with the normal sabbath or other fasts

Isa 58:6  Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 

Isaiah is referencing Leviticus 23

The Day of Atonement

Lev 23:26  And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 

Lev 23:27  Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation to you, and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. 

Lev 23:32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

Yom Kippur Fast – Month Seven Day Ten

A beautiful day! Yom Kippur! It is called, The Fast.

Can we know God’s ways? Can we approach God? Is it sin to approach God? What is Isaiah saying? How do we dare approach God? Even Job said that he was but a worm!

Are we asking God the ‘ordinances’ of His justice? What are his ordinances?

“The Nation of Israel sought God daily and ask for justice through God’s ordinances.” Isaiah 58:2

“The Nation of Israel took ‘delight’ in approaching to God.” Isaiah 58:2

There is a day appointed to approach God, God’s way. This day is on a sabbath. This day is not the normal weekly sabbath. It is the day God has chosen for man to afflict their soul. Yes, it is Yom Kippur, Month Seven Day Ten (Tishri 10)

The publishers of most bibles have chosen not to capitalized this fast and thus many lose its value. And yet, the words are very intense that this day is different from any other day.

Isa 58:1 KJV – Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. 

Isa 58:2  Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God. 

Isa 58:3  Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours

Isa 58:4  Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. 

Isa 58:5  Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? 

God’s disgust of us not understanding The Fast is likened to blowing a cry of war on the shofar. People think they are doing right and yet they are misled by not understanding that this is a very special Sabbath. The directions at Yom Kippur should never be expressed on any other Sabbath. It truly is a solemn time.

The regular Sabbath instructs us to rest from our own labor in order to help others. The ‘helping’ Sabbath is considered a delight and not an affliction.

Yom Kippur is more than just a day of nor working. It is a day to NOT even discuss The Torah, which is our delight. It NOT a day to argue about wickedness. Yom Kippur is our personal day to admit our own wickedness.

Yom Kippur is a day we are NOT to, “turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day;” Yes, do this Sabbath, fasting in affliction.

Yom Kippur is ‘The Fast’ God set up for man to NOT take pleasure on a Sabbath. Yes, it is a Sabbath, a rest unto The Lord. It is to be observed looking within to repent. It is THEE Sabbath that is set apart for afflicting ourselves.

How do we celebrate a regular Sabbath? God desires our earth to be fruitful and multiply. We work six days and then celebrate life with our families. We can go to our children’s soccer games and picnics. It is family day! It is a day that helps hold marriages and families together surrounded in Yeshua Jesus who also honored Sabbath being with friends. It is a day for growing yourself in God’s instructions! After Yeshua Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, it was several days later that many gathered to see him on the Sabbath. They did NOT afflict themselves. Lazarus’ resurrection became the forerunner to Yeshua resurrection.

All week-long people look forward to The Sabbath. It is The Lord’s first festival which desires fellowship with God. Many open the regular Sabbath on Friday evening by lighting candles with their family. As believers, this is an opportunity to discuss taht Yeshua is ‘Light of the World’. Reading Scripture is important as we are to ‘remember’ what God does. We are to be like children sitting at our Father’s feet where he comes alive as we read what He wrote from the foundation of the world. When the children ask about Yom Kippur, “Why is this day different?”, do you know how to respond? Hmm!

The Fast of Yom Kippur is to be an affliction. It is purposed to teach us how to handle current affliction and that patterns to the Last Great Day of Affliction our earth will endure at the end. Yeshua Jesus is our Bread of Affliction has set us free! Yom Kippur is ‘ground zero’ teaching us ‘how’ the oppressed are set free.

Isa 58:6  Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 

The Fast releases earth’s heavy burdens and the captives are set free. All yokes are broken and there will be no more tears. Yeshua Jesus is The Fast!

The evening service before Yom Kippur is called Kol Nidre. Many will study all night long, go to synagogue all day, wear white, and, at the synagogue they might stand the whole time during the time of prayers and readings… Yes, all day long!

The fast will be 25 hours long. The woman won’t wear make-up or perfume. Wearing white and no leather shoes is part of Yom Kippur. Spending time at synagogue in continuous prayer is even seen by those that don’t usually attend synagogue,

The services of Yom Kippur continue from morning to evening, including readings from the Torah and the reciting of penitential prayers, and end with closing prayers and the blowing of the ritual horn known as a shofar.

And so, what are we to do on the regular Sabbaths? Yes, feed and help the poor! Isaiah is showing us the difference between the actions of a regular Sabbath and the ordinance of Yom Kippur!

Isa 58:7  Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh

We are to take care of ourselves and others!

Isa 58:8  Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward. 

Isa 58:9  Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 

Isa 58:10  And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: 

Isa 58:11  And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 

The Lord’s Calendar repairs the breech. The Torah restores the paths to walk in because Torah is the foundation. Yom Kippur brings us to look inside ourselves so we can rejoice and delight in The Sabbaths that are meant to have joy.

The Torah: old waste places, foundations, repairs the breach, restores the path.

Isa 58:12  And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. 

Isaiah is referring to ‘The Fast’ taught in The Torah. We should NOT turn away from afflicting ourselves on it. We should call Yom Kippur a delight to repent. It is a day NOT to do our own way, nor even speaking, in case that would delight us.

Isa 58:13  If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shalt honor him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words

Those that honor The Fast will ride on high places of the earth…and feed in the heritage of The Living Torah Yeshua Jesus who is of the heritage of Ya’cov.

Isa 58:14  Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. 

Yom Kippur – Month Seven Day Ten. No man is working…the stock markets may drop…men may not shave; people might not bathe. Some sit quietly on the floor showing their children how to live ‘in the ‘quiet’ with God and with no headphone.

And what are we to do on the regular Sabbaths? Yes, feed and help the poor! Isaiah is showing us the difference between the actions of a regular Sabbath and the ordinance of Yom Kippur! He’s showing a regular fast and a Yom Kippur fast.

The Fast – The Day of Atonement – “The LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD”.

Yom Kippur was the pattern to Yeshua Jesus’ dying (burnt up). Repentance is the pattern to His Return! It happens in one day! He Returns: Day of Repentance.

Another case for The Sabbath to be a ‘delight’ comes in the fact that Jewish scholars adjust their calendars, so Yom Kippur does not land on a normal Sabbath. If Yom Kippur does land on their particular calendar’s sabbath, they push it to the next day, using the word, ‘deferred’. Yom Kippur defers to Day Eight, Sunday.

The Sabbath is always a ‘happy’ day giving way to honor: The Fast / Yom Kippur.

We should never want to take away from one of The Lord’s Feasts. Therefore, no other Sabbath should ever compete to the pattern of ‘The End of Day Sabbath Yom Kippur.’

Our lives must be open to learning the ways of God, rightly dividing His words of truth.

And, as serious as we must take the words of Isaiah, he is not giving us, The Torah. He is reflecting back to The Torah. No writer should ever be in conflict with the first five books.

Where do we see the Yom Kippur Sabbath described?

Lev 23:28 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.

Lev 23:29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. Lev 23:30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Lev 23:31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. Lev 23:32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

Day Ten begins at dusk Day Nine. Dark is always first so then light can come.

ADOINAI hates divorce so he orchestrates people to come in unity every Sabbath. Fathers are an example of our Father who created all things. Mothers are The Bride supporting her husband. Yeshua Jesus has brought those honoring The Father’s instructions to The Father. All come to fellowship in harmony.

The Sabbatical Year

Deuteronomy 15:1 KJV At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release. 

Deu 15:2  And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD’S release. 

Yom Kippur looks to RELEASE. The Sabbatical Jubilee releases World Affliction!

Lev 23:38  Beside the sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your free-will-offerings, which ye give to the LORD. 

Hebraism repeats for good communication:

Lev 23:42  Ye shall dwell in booths seven days: all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: 

Lev 23:43  That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God. 

Lev 23:44  And Moses declared to the children of Israel the feasts of the LORD. 

The Lord’s Feasts teach us a 7000-year program planned for our earth. We live here to be like flourishing trees. Month One and Month Seven host a seven-day event again pointing to earth filling up 7000 years of activity. Month One celebrates The Suffering Servant. Month Seven celebrates The Suffering Servants return God’s Right Hand, King of Kings.

Patterns run through our earth with the heaven’s speaking as well. The lunar tetrads since the 1900’s have all been located on The Lord’s festivals. They beg to be understood by humanity.

The Tetrad has four consecutive total lunar eclipses. They begin on Day One of The Spring feasts and begin on Day One of The Fall Feasts. The four eclipses close out in the same pattern.

The Lord’s Feasts occur over SEVEN months and the Tetrads ‘mark’ them exactly since the 1900’s began.
