One Day Short

"Then Aaron shall lay both of his hands on the head of the live goat, and confess over it all the iniquities of the sons of Israel and all their transgressions in regard to all their sins; and he shall lay them on the head of the goat and send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who stands in readiness." Leviticus 16:21

 As the high priest of Israel, Aaron was commanded to take two goats, one to be sacrificed for the peopleís atonement, and one to lay the sins on and taken to the wilderness by the arm of a strong man. The first goat represented Jesus and the second, the Azazel goat represented Satan.

 Though Jesus gave His sinless life in payment for our sins, the devil is still responsible for tempting man to sin and stands guilty before the Lord. This was commanded to be done on the 10th day of the 7th month on the Hebrew calendar which occurs in September or October. It is the Day of Atonement and occurs nine days after the Feast of Trumpets which is the first Holy Day of the fall Festivals. Atonement is a time when people will become AT-ONE-MENT with God as the tempter is taken away. The 7th trumpet blast of the year is sounded on Trumpets which pictures the return of Jesus.

 Atonement pictures the time when Satan, the Azazel goat, will be put away for a thousand years and the man in readiness represents the strong angel which will cast him into the abyss, -"Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven holding the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not deceive the nations and longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time." (Rev.20)

 The 7-day Feast of Tabernacles begins five days following Atonement and pictures the Kingdom of God being established upon the earth when Jesus and His saints will rule the nations for a millennia. At the end of the thousand years Satan will be released to tempt the nations and then afterward be cast into the Lake of Fire to be destroyed, -"When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations." - "And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the Lake of Fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever."

 "Forever" in Greek can mean an "age" which is usually timed at a thousand years which is the correct meaning here because of what Ezekiel prophesied Luciferís fate to be, -"Therefore I have cast you as profane from the Mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering angel, from the midst of the stones of fire. . .Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you; It has consumed you, and I have turned you to ashes on the earth." (Ezek.28)

 The 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles is actually another Holy Day which pictures the second resurrection (Rev.20) and the Great White Throne Judgment.

 There are 365 days in our solar year and the devil comes up one day short - that day is the Day of Atonement when he will be imprisoned. In the Hebrew names have a numerical value - interestingly enough, Satanís numerical value matches his fate - it is 364.
