Fasting and The Day of AtonementS
Fasting on The Day of Atonement: Is it a command of Torah, or scripture? Or is it simply another man made tradition? Is there more than meets the eye?
I have personally fasted on this holy day. Many people do. It is what I learned from what someone else told me. Didn't give it a thought until about a year ago when I ran across a very clear study on the subject, while participating in a discussion on the subject.
"On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonements; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall humble your souls and present an offering by fire to IAUA." Lev 23:27
Tuesday evening at sunset, September 25, 2012, begins the 24 hours period of The Day of Atonements. On that special day, a most important feast, or appointed time, of IAUA, many people around the world will be fasting. That is, not eating for the entire day, or 24 hour period. Is this a command of scripture? Are these the instructions given to us by IAUA?
I'd like to share with you the study I discovered not too long ago, that may shed some different light on the subject. I'd invite you to read and study it for yourself, and see what you think. You may come away with a different conclusion.
Please feel free to share your thoughts afterward.
Here's the link to the study:

This month begins with the noted "Feast of Trumpets" or "Day of Trumpets," (Rosh Hashanah) one of the most significant months of appointed times or feasts on IAUA's calendar.
New Moon Day, and Day of Trumpets begins at sundown September 16th, and completes at sundown September 17th.
New moon Day, and 7th day Shabbats are on gregorian mondays this month.
In Israel, Daylight Savings Time will also come to an end this month on Sunday, September 23rd. Daylight Savings Time does not start and end at the same times throughout the world. For instance, DST will not end in the USA until Sunday November 4th.You can check out the beginning and ending of DST for various countries of the world at www.timeanddate.com
Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) occurs on gregorian Sept 25-26, beginning at sundown Sept 25, and ending at sundown Sept 26.
Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) begins at sundown Sept 30th, and ends at sundown, the end of the day at sunset on Oct 7th.
May you each have a blessed month as we all continue to seek IAUA's truth.
