Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures… (1Co. 15:1-4 NKJV)For Christ [the Messiah Himself] died for sins once for all, the Righteous for the unrighteous (the Just for the unjust, the Innocent for the guilty), that He might bring us to God. In His human body He was put to death, but He was made alive in the spirit… (1Pt. 3:18 AMPC)

As Jesus Christ died on the cross, He became a sin offering ONCE FOR ALL. He died as the Passover Lamb to redeem mankind from death and as the Sin Offering of the Atonement to satisfy God’s wrath against sin. The High Priest would take the sin offering on the Day of Atonement and dip his finger in the blood of the sacrifice to sprinkle it seven times on the Ark of the Covenant. The judgment seat would turn into a mercy seat.

He is to take some of the bull’s blood and with his finger sprinkle it on the front of the atonement cover; then he shall sprinkle some of it with his finger seven times before the atonement cover. (Lev. 16:14)

On the Day of Atonement, the blood of the sacrifices was sprinkled on the Mercy Seat. The reason was to protect the people from God’s wrath because of the priest’s and the people’s accumulated sin.

Once Jesus was sentenced to death, He shed his blood Seven Times:

  1. He shed his blood in the Garden of Gethsemane. This was for the release of the anointing for miracles
  2. He shed his blood at the whipping post. This was for physical healing
  3. He shed his blood internally and hemorrhaged from the beating. This was for internal sin nature and inner healing.
  4. He shed his blood from the crown of thorns on his head. This was for deliverance from mental anguish and redemption from the curse of poverty.
  5. He shed his blood when they pierced his hands. This was to bless the work of our hands
  6. He shed his blood when they pierced his feet = This was to restore dominion
  7. He shed his blood when they pierced his side. This caused blood and water to flow from His heart. This was to give us new hearts and impart eternal life in our hearts.
