THE NATURE OF THE ATONEMENT
THE NATURE OF THE ATONEMENT
The Hebrew word "Kaphar" means "to cover"; figuratively "to expiate or condone, to placate or conceal", It is translated by these words: "appease, make an atonement, cleanse, disannul, forgive, be merciful, pacify, purge, reconcile", It comes from the Hebrew word "Kippur" meaning "expiation, atonement", The Old English word "atonement" means "to be made at one", "to reconcile, to bring about agreement, or concord". Thus it may read "at-one-ment", the making at-one those that have disagreement. Further definition of the words "atone" or
"atonement" is seen in the following:
To cover, or to expiate, condone.
To purge, to purge away.
To answer or make satisfaction for, to expiate.
To appease, which is to make quiet; to allay; to satisfy, pacify, especially by giving in to the demands of someone, i.e. to appease wrath.
To make amends or reparation (for wrong-doing, a wrong-doer).
At-one; agreement; concord; reconciliation after enmity or controversy. (Read Exodus 29:33-37; Leviticus 16:6-17)
Thus "atonement" is spoken of as the covering, the expiation, the satisfaction, the appeasement or the reconciliation. A consideration of the rich meaning of this word shows how vast and comprehensive a word it is. For this reason it has been chosen as the most suitable word to encompass all redemptive words.
Man broke God's holy law, violating the principles of righteousness by his willful disobedience. This brought man under the power of sin and made his conscience laden with guilt. With the violation of the divine law also came the divine penalty of death (Genesis 2:17). Sin provoked God's wrath which then needed to be appeased. The law demanded a satisfaction and it could only be satisfied when its
standard of holiness is upheld. Not until the death penalty had been executed (Romans 6:23) upon sin (Ezekiel 18:4,20; Hebrews 9:27) could the law be satisfied, God's holiness and righteousness upheld. and God's wrath be appeased. Sin had to be purged before there could be any reconciliation between
God and man.
In summary we say then that the holiness of God against the sinfulness of man produced the reaction of divine wrath. It is this wrath that needed the appeasement before a holy God and sinful man could ever be reconciled. This appeasement is the atonement.

INSPIRATION FOR YOUR DAY ... THIS WILL MAKE YOUR HEART SWELL!
Incredible. They are proud of looting. Your thoughts?
According to the Washington Post, a looter in Ferguson, Missouri, expressed pride and admiration for looters and said their actions are justified.
"I'm proud of us. We deserve this, and this is what's supposed to happen when there's injustice in your community," said DeAndre Smith, whom the Washington Post says was "fresh from looting the QuikTrip."
One officer told the Post that widespread looting has spawned "looting tourism" wherein thieves as far away as Illinois and Texas are traveling to Ferguson to steal.
"It's like looting tourism," said the officer. "It's like they are spending their gas money to come down here and steal."
The presence of outside forces could be seen during Monday evening's clashes. CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill said two white individuals, one an "anarchist" and another from a "revolutionary Communist group in Illinois," lobbed water bottles into a crowd of protestors and were shunned by protestors who told them to "go back to your neighborhood with that instead of coming in here and messing with us."
The Post says a 27-year-old "militant" from Chicago explained that the time for peace has passed.
"This is not the time for no peace. We are jobless men, and this is our job now--getting justice," the Chicago militant told the Post. "If that means violence, that's okay by me. They've been doing this to us for years."
This is for every dog lover out there.
