The day of atonements. Yes, I said atonements, not atonement!
Under the Older Covenant, this day is the day the High Priest (Kohen Gadol) would make atonement for the holy sanctuary, for the Tabernacle, for the altar, for the priests, and for all the people (Leviticus 16:33). This is the day upon which the Book of Life was sealed for the following year.
Under the Newer Covenant, Yeshua entered has entered the Holy of Holies in the Heavenly Temple, cleansed the altar with his own blood, made atonement for all sin, and now sits at the right hand of Yahweh. For the Bride of Yeshua, there is no longer any condemnation (Romans 8:1) – no need for a yearly atonement.
