The Day of Atonement is Coming September 23rd Sundown – September 24th Sundown, 2013. Be prepared to afflict your souls in Godly Sorrow.
“For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.(2Cor. 7:10)” Reflect on both the things you have changed since your baptism along the things you still have to work on (create a list if need be). Above all, remember how that through the blood of Yashaya, we have obtained true mercy from our Father which is in Heaven.
