    Although I am a Gentile I just took two glasses of water because Yom Kippur begins in about one hour
    and I will not be eating any food or even drinking any water or other liquid until about 8 pm tomorrow
    evening.

    The last ten days are known as the "ten days of awe" between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

    I've been fasting on this day for about forty years and although I am not yet Jewish........
    it sure seems as if my philosophy of life has been greatly improved due to making at
    least a feeble effort to show respect for the High Holy Days of Judaism.

    My search to notice hidden meaning in Yom Kippur has played a huge role in my becoming
    convinced of eventual universal salvation........

    I am curious how many people on this forum are interested in possible hidden meaning in the Jewish
    Holy Days?

    The G-d of Abraham / HaShem....
    is extremely good at leading people to deeper and deeper and deeper levels of
    repentance......and the understanding of our own failings and humanity.

    In my opinion.... it is not a coincidence that those tapes about The Donald came out
    during the Ten Days of Awe.

    Here is a verse that had me scratching my head for the last forty years or so.

    https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/lev/16/1/s_106001

    Who is Azazel????

    The best answer that I got to that question was in the Book of Enoch that
    was actually part of the Christian canon for about five centuries until it was
    dropped in favor of The Apocalypse / The Book of Revelation.

    http://reluctant-messenger.com/book_of_enoch.htm
    [Chapter 13]

    These verses are interesting because they show that this particular fallen angel / son of G-d....../ king of the Watchers.....
    had the positive characteristic of humility....... and could feel guilt over his actions.

    I read an exceptionally encouraging Yom Kippur story a few hours ago.

    What Mr. Ken Rank wrote so reminded me of how my nation Canada,
    obviously had a lot of anti-Semitic sentiment within our political leadership
    when we turned away the over nine hundred Jewish refugees that were on
    the M. S. St. Louis.

    Canada and the US kept Jews in their concentration camps and sent some to Nazi Germany as pow exchanges.

    How are you guys going on the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Ingathering at the year's end. Gotta keep the 6th Commandment.

    I've been building a Sukkot for over a decade. The frame is already there ... I just have to replace the old brush on the roof with
    green brush..... possibly tomorrow morning.


    You have inspired me to read further on this topic.

    You may receive a little comfort from what former Atheist Howard Storm was shown
    was going on in fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth dimensional space - time during the
    holocaust.

    I read his book about five years ago.

    Have you ever read the tradition that in the time of King Solomon, the son of
    King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba was trained in all the 613 laws of Judaism.

    When the son of King Solomon returned to Ethiopia many members of the Tribes of Dan
    and Levi went with him. Solomon is recorded to have made him a duplicate of the Ark of the Covenant
    so that the Levitical laws could be kept there in Ethiopia.... because it was too far for him to
    go to Jerusalem every year for Sukkot and the other annual Festivals.

    Solomon was a homicidal maniac. He was not a nice guy but a vicious killer.

    That's too funny. The ovens were used to burn diseased corpses one at a time. I'm sure that we had similar ovens in our concentration camps.

    The writer is a self-admitted delusional nutcase. He saw angels, really? It makes for some great propaganda that helps him sell his BS story but it it's like someone saying that he just had an ice cream cone on the Sun.

    If you are convinced that there could be no such thing as life in fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth dimensional space time........
    then our buddy AboveAlpha has a little saying for you.......

    I am glad that I read how Orthodox Jewish near death experiencer Ms. Beverly Brodsky was given an explanation for such things:
