The Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about To keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time Let the spell be spake in rhyme. Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much. Deosil go by the waxing moon, Chanting out the Witches' Rune. Widdershins go by the waning moon, Chanting out the baneful rune. When the Lady's moon is new, Kiss the hand to her, times two. When the moon rides at her peak, Then your heart's desire seek, Heed the North wind's mighty gale, Lock the door and drop the sail. When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the West, Departed souls will have no rest. When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast. Nine woods in the cauldron go, Burn them fast and burn them slow. Elder be the Lady's tree, Burn it not or cursed you'll be. When the Wheel begins to turn, Let the Beltane fires burn. When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and the Horned One rules. Heed ye Flower, Bush and Tree, By the Lady, blessed be. Where the rippling waters go, Cast a stone and truth you'll know. When ye have a true need, Hearken not to others' greed. With a fool no season spend, Lest ye be counted as his friend. Merry meet and merry part, Bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the Threefold Law you should, Three times bad and three times good. When misfortune is enow, Wear the blue star on thy brow. True in Love ever be, Lest thy lover's false to thee. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.

The Day of Atonement

My Friends, Pastor David and Tam reminded me that this Saturday from sundown to sundown the next day is the Day of Atonement. It is annual event. During this day four ideas take place, "Fasting, Sacrifice,  the Scapegoat and the Jubilee". 

So What is Fasting, To fast is to humble oneself before God but it is also an all out, whole hearted effort to remove the heavy burden (of sin) Isaiah 58:6. Fasting is about REPENTANCE. The act of fasting is and should be a single minded effort to establish a proper relationship with God. To the exclusion of all other activities, including eating and drinking, therefore absolutely NO WORK should be done.

We must REPENT, which means not only being sorry for what we have done, it means being sorry enough to CHANGE, to STOP DOING THOSE THINGS THAT SEPARATE US FROM GOD! Only then can the next step take place.

The day will come, on some future Fast of Atonement that, the true High Priest of God, the only true Mediator between God and man, will remove the Vail of sin separating the majority of mankind from God and apply His sacrifice making atonement for all men, even as He atoned for the sins of His called out firstfruits on the day of PASSOVER!

On this day the Scape Goat is chosen by lot. Lev 16:8. This means that God decides which goat to take, for man is unable to discern between good and evil. We must follow God and not attempt to define good and evil for ourselves. We simply do not have the experience, knowledge or wisdom to know for ourselves. Doing what we think is right, is self-righteousness. Doing what God says is right, is true Godly righteousness. All the sins, of all the people, are confessed over the scape goat and it is led into the wilderness. Thus signifying forgiveness and the total removal of all sin forever. As the sacrificial goat represents the atoning power of Christ's sacrifice applied to the majority of mankind, the Scape Goat represents the responsibility for sin being placed upon the originator of sin, satan, who is then removed from the presence of God and man forever.

The JUBILEE occurs every fiftieth year and is declared on the Day of Atonement Lev 25:1-14. This day pictures the restoration of all things. It represents FREEDOM for all people, LIBERTY is PROCLAIMED and all persons may return to their own lands and families. This ever so clearly demonstrates FREEDOM FROM THE HEAVY BURDEN OF SIN, brought about through REPENTANCE and FORGIVENESS! It shows the removal of Sin and the suffering it brings. It shows the atonement made for sin, now applied to a REPENTANT HUMANITY, giving ALL PERSONS, LIBERTY from the enslavement of sin and from the influence of Satan.
