Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) symbolizes the need for the forgiveness of sin and is fulfilled by Messiah Yeshua's sacrifice for the atonement of humanity's sins. Significantly, the offerings made on Yom Kippur are the only offerings of all those made throughout the year that also atone for unintentional sin. This makes the link between Yom Kippur and Yeshua the Messiah even more obvious.
"The next day John saw Jesus [Yeshua] coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" (John 1:29)
As believers in Yeshua we know that we have full redemption of sins by the blood of Yeshua the Messiah. As the Jewish people are preparing for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, many are sacrificing chickens for their sins. Because deep down in their soul they know that prayer and fasting cannot atone for sins and certainly can not bring them to salvation.
Jews sacrificing chickens for the Day of Atonement
Messiah of Israel Ministries with believers were led by the Holy Spirit to share Yeshua, the final atonement, in Jerusalem, as chickens were being waved over people's heads and then sacrificed for their sins.
Zev approached an Orthodox Jew who had a chicken waved over his head for his sins. Many chickens were waved over his head because he had replaced his family members.

After he finished, Zev spoke with him in love. This Orthodox man's name is Netan. Zev said to him: "That chicken cannot take away your sins. In fact, you are grieving the God of Israel by doing so." Netan told Zev that he had been doing this for over 15 years and his rabbi says it's the will of God. Zev asked Netan: "Where does it say to sacrifice chickens for sins in the Bible? Netan did not have an answer. "What do you do with the chicken after it's sacrificed?" Zev asked. Netan replied: "We will give the chickens to the poor to eat." "So you are saying you give a chicken full of sins to the poor to eat?" Zev asked. Netan was puzzled and said he never thought about it. Zev asked if he believes in the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh - Old Testament)? Netan said "Yes". Then we opened the Bible to Leviticus 17:1 -
"For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement."

Naten said to Zev: "But we no longer have the temple." Zev said to him that God sent His Messiah to pay for our sins once and for all as the final atonement. Netan asked where it said this in the Bible. Zev then opened to Isaiah 53. After reading this, he said he did not learn this in the Bible school. Zev explained to Netan: "Unfortunately, most Jews don't know the truth because the rabbis have eliminated this truth and replaced it with witchcraft like sacrificing chickens. Today is the day and time before Yom Kippur you need ask the Messiah into your heart." Netan was getting nervous and asked if he can get Zev's contact details so they can study alone. Praise Yeshua!
Please pray that Netan will call Zev to study the Word of God. And pray for his revelation and salvation.
Zev continued to share the message with many people who were waving chickens over their heads for their sins.

Zev then moved to another area of the Kotel to share the Good News of Yeshua. An Orthodox Jews named Haim who was praying that the Messiah would appear this Yom Kippur and Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. Zev announced out loud to him. "God loves you and Messiah has come and He will come again." Haim was suddenly shocked and said: "Who says the Messiah has come?" Zev told them that God sent the Messiah to die for our sins once and for all. Zev asked: "Do we have a temple now?" Haim said: "No." Praise Yeshua. Haim was able to raed Bible with Zev.
Daniel 9:24-26 -
24 "Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place. 25 So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress. 26 Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined."
After reading this, Zev encourage him to keep reading the Word of God.
At that day, many heard the Word of God and seeds were planted.
May the pople of Israel will know the Messiah ONLY THROUGH YESHUA (JESUS). AMEN.
