We are all reminded that a tithe is 10 % of our income and sometimes even that

How can anyone, Jew or Gentile, receive atonement for our souls when there is no
Temple and no blood sacrifices? Well, there is a blood sacrifice that is available
and we can appropriate it to ourselves and to our families, and that is the blood
sacrifice that was made - the voluntary sacrifice of Yahshua the Messiah who lay
down His life as a one-time sacrifice for all time.
No one took His life from Him, He lay it down of His own free will so that whoever
[Jew or Gentile] would believe and call upon His Name would, by appropriation,
receive atonement for their souls. Not only that, but their names would be inscribed
in the Lamb's Book of Life.
