   By Peter James from:   


Recently I wrote a simple, and clear description of the Day of Atonement.



This will now show how what was portrayed in Leviticus 16 was actually fulfilled.

The goat, which represented Satan, was called Azazel.

We saw that this goat had all the sins of the nation Israel read over it.

Then this goat was taken by a strong man, to a desolate wilderness and there

it was let loose in an area where no one lived.


However, questions remain.


Is there more to this than we have explained up to now?

Was there an actual application of what was enacted in Leviticus 16?


The answer to both of these very important questions,

is that there was a great deal more.


When Christ died, His disciples and other followers, were in great shock,

and distress.

They had no understanding of the fact that He would be resurrected.


Shortly after He was resurrected He started to appear to them.


One of the first to see Him was Mary, there were several women called Mary,

who followed Christ, but this was Mary Magdalene.

This report is in the gospel of John chapter 20


Mary had been the first to arrive at the tomb, in the early hours of Sunday morning, but Christ had been risen at the end of the previous day’s Sabbath,

so the tomb was empty.

Mary was distraught, and she looked into the tomb from which the great stone,

had been rolled away. That she could look into the tomb was a huge surprise

to her, because it had been sealed with a great stone, so that no one could steal the body of Christ. There she saw two angels.

They asked her why she was weeping.


She said that she was distressed because Christ’s body was missing.

She turned around and saw a man, whom she thought to be the gardener.

She asked she asked the same question, where was Christ?

Christ then called her by name ‘Mary’.

She immediately recognised his voice and said ‘Master’.

Christ was fully aware of the next thing that she would do.

She would want to embrace Him.

She would not have understood why Christ would have told her not to do so.

but none the less she obeyed, and she was told the reason.


John 20:17  Jesus saith unto her,

Touch me not;

for I am not yet ascended to my Father:

but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father,

and your Father; and to my God, and your God.


Christ explained to her that something had to happen, before He could

allow anyone to touch Him.

He had first to go to His Father.

The question remains, what difference was that going to make?

The answer is the world of difference.


Some time later Christ told them that they could touch Him.


Luke 24:36  And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.


This means that something had happened between the instruction

not to touch Him, and then the permission that they could now touch Him.


Let us first look at several verses that explains this difficult problem.

Christ came to the earth to pay the price for the sins of all men,

who would ever live.


Here is a selection of verses, which show this.


John 1:29  The next day John (the Baptist) seeth Jesus coming unto him,

and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.


 2 Corinthians 5:21  For he (God the Father) hath made him to be sin for us,

who knew no sin;

that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.


Galatians 1:4  Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:


Galatians 3:13  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law,

being made a curse for us: for it is written,

Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Notice that Christ was crucified on a Tree, not on a cross.


1 Timothy 2:6  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.


Titus 2:14  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity,

and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 


1 Peter 2:24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree,

that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness:

by whose stripes ye were healed.


1 John 2:2  And he is the propitiation (the ransom paid) for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.


When Christ had all the sins of humanity dumped on Him,

this caused very serious consequences for Him.

His Father in heaven, whose holiness prevented Him from being in the presence

of sin, had to turn his back on Him. It is for this reason that Christ said:

why hast thou forsaken me?


Christ fully knew what was going on, but He said this for our benefit,

so that we could know, what had happened, otherwise we would never know.


Matthew 27:46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Mark 15:34  And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?


The point, which few fail to understand is that this is not an intellectual discussion

nor a fairy tale.

This is the incredible harsh reality.

The Holy God, who created us in the first place, came to take our place individually and collectively to pay the price for everyone’s sins, even atheists, regardless of race, religion, sex or anything at all.


When the above took place


We have to understood precisely who Christ was.


John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God.

John 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God.

John 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing

made that was made.

John 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.


John 1:10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him,

and the world knew him not.

John 1:11  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.


In Genesis 1, when Christ recreated the firmament, which he called heaven.

This was because the first heaven and earth, which is mentioned in Genesis 1:1

had undergone a traumatic tragic destruction with Satan’s rebellion.

The earth was trashed, and completely under water. It was in darkness, because

that heaven, called the firmament, had been completely destroyed, therefore  there was total darkness and coldness.


Christ almost immediately made a new firmament, as described in Genesis 1:7,

on the second day, then the empty firmament was filled with the sun, moon,

and stars on the fourth day. More details are given in Genesis 1:14 which starts describing what happened on the fourth day. 


Genesis 1: 7  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which

were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament:

and it was so.

Genesis 1: 8  And God called the firmament Heaven.

And the evening and the morning were the second day.


I am constantly challenging, any and all believers, to define the God,

whom they claim to worship.

Very, very few indeed can do this.

They believe in a trinity and all sorts of things, but not what is the Truth.


The Eternal God is a single composite being.

Man and woman are made in precisely the same way, in the image of God,

a composite being.


Genesis 1:27  So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.


These are the 3 components which make up the composite being called ‘God’.


(1) By definition God is Spirit, and by definition, God is a perfectly Holy and  Spirit.


The Eternal God, who knew that the angels would sin, and that man would sin, planned in Eternity past, that He would come to the earth as the man,

Christ, to pay the price for the sin of all mankind.


(2) The very first creation of the Eternal God was the spirit in man, for Christ.

It is Christ Himself, who explained this to us.

If you have a Red letter bible, which highlights the words of Christ in red,

you will see that this verse is in red. Christ is telling us that the very first thing

that the Father made was His Spirit.


Revelation 3:14  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;


(3)From that moment, at any time, a body of flesh could be used to clothe

the Spirit of Christ.


Unlike in the case of man, who cannot live without his human spirit.

Since Christ died, the composite components of the Eternal God cannot die.

They are all Eternal, and they can appear as they wish, but none the less

they all make up One God.

It is not aTrinity, nor a duality, but just One God.


Malachi 2:10  Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us?. . .


So we now have the two spiritual components, which make up God,

and the third which is the physical body of Christ.


This matter of the composite body is precisely the same for man.

The major difference is that the Holy Spirit in man, is a fraction of the completeness, which is in the Eternal God.


2 Corinthians 1:22  Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest

( a small amount, as it were a deposit ) of the Spirit in our hearts.

2 Corinthians 5:5  Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God,

who also hath given unto us the earnest

(a small amount, as it were a deposit )of the Spirit.


When you look at another person, you only see a single being.

You do not see two people. You see a single person.

The spirit in man is identical to the physical person.

It is impossible to tell the difference between them.

It is only if you could touch the spirit of a person, you will not touch anything at all,

as by definition spiritual things are not physical.


Christ explains this situation precisely.


Luke 24:39  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me,

and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.


In normal circumstances, when the spirit of a human being leaves the physical

body, this results in death.


In the case of a converted man, there are also 3 parts.

(1) There is the physical body.

(2) There is the spirit in man.

(3) There is a third spiritual component in a complete person.

It is the spirit of God.

In a repentant believer, the spirit of God also resides in the person


As I have explained for many years.

Without understanding the spirit in man, much of the bible is a complete mystery.


It is hard to explain, but  it appears that the Holy Spirit had to go through as it were a transformation as we have in some electrical devices.

Some devices like computers, phones and other devices which are powered

by mains electricity have to have transformers to get the voltage stepped down from 120 or 230 volts to 12 volts.

Yet it is precisely the same electricity, and it works the device as required.


When Christ came to the earth, this is sort of what happened.

He was the mediator, the interface, between God and man.

The Eternal God was too Holy, and man was too wicked

to be face to face. We could say that the God side of Christ faced

the Father, and the man side of Christ face man.


Additionally we could say that we just could not  face  the Holy Spirit at full power.

It would as it were, destroy us.


Christ became the mediator, the interface in many ways,

that is why we can only have one mediator, no one else can fulfil that role.

He literally stood between the Eternal God and us.


We can see that the Holy Spirit is the same as the Spirit of Christ.


Galatians 4:6  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.


Philippians 1:19  For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

We can also see that the Holy Spirit in Christ had first hand experience

of what it was like to be a human being.


After Christ’s death, resurrection and ascension, He could now return as the Holy

Spirit, who could reside in as many people as necessary.


Christ clearly said that if He went away, that He would come again.


John 16:7   Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.


John 14:28  Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father:

for my Father is greater than I.


Christ uses the interplay between all the three components in a wonderful way,

because there is only One God.


1 Timothy 2:5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;


Let us consider what happened to Christ when He died and was resurrected.

The reality of what the procedure on the Day of Atonement means  is made in

the following verses.


Zechariah 3:1  And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before

the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.

Zechariah 3:2  And the LORD said unto Satan,

The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

Zechariah 3:3  Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments,

and stood before the angel.

Zechariah 3:4  And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said,

Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee,

and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.

Zechariah 3:5  And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the LORD stood by.


I will now explain each verse as is necessary.


Zechariah 3:1  And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before

the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.


The angel showed Zechariah Joshua, this is not the Joshua who succeeded Moses. Joshua, the successor of Moses was not a high priest.

Joshua is another name for Jesus.

This Joshua was a High Priest.


Hebrews 2:17  Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.


Hebrews 4:15  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.


Satan might well have thought that he was there to resist Joshua,

but he was in for a great shock.


It is certainly not normal for Satan to be at the throne of the Eternal God,

except to give an account of his activities as we see in Job 1, when he was asked

what he had been doing?


Zechariah 3:3  Now Joshua (Jeshua) was clothed with filthy garments,

and stood before the angel.


Here we see that Jesus had on filthy clothes.

In reality it was more than His clothes that were filthy.

His entire body still was fully laden with all the sins which had been put on Him

before He was crucified.

Death did not remove the sins.

Resurrection did not remove the sins.


We know that if we do hard work and our body gets dirty,

inevitably our clothes also get dirty.

This was exactly the same situation for Jesus at this point.


Then  the angel of the Lord said to those  around Jesus,

take away His filthy garments from Him


Zechariah 3:4  And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said,

He then said that the iniquity which had been on Him, had been removed from Him.  So what had happened to this mountain of iniquity?

Was it just thrown onto the floor and left there?


No absolutely not, just as happened on the Day of Atonement all the sin

was dumped on Satan, just as it had been put on the goat that

represented Satan.

Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee,

Then Jesus was clothed with a complete change of clothes.

and I will clothe thee with change of raiment

Zechariah 3:5  And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head.

So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments.

And the angel of the LORD stood by.


Satan was then thrown out of heaven, and now roams the earth,

and all the dark places. He knows full well, that his days are numbered,

so the best that he can do is work diligently to deceive as many as possible,

so that they would have the same fate as awaits him, hell, or utter destruction

in the Lake of Fire.


We have seen how important the Day of Atonement is in practical terms,

and it is not just an empty meaningless ritual, and what took place in reality.


Praise the Lord, for His marvellous plan, which He is making known to us.
