Christ Shed Blood 7 Times For Us

One of my favorite ways of studying and learning the Bible is through types, shadows, symbols and Biblical numerical meanings of hidden truths. The Word of God tells us in Proverbs 25:2 that, “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.”

The Bible proclaims in Revelation 1:6 and Revelation 5:10 that we are kings and priests. The Apostle Paul writes in Colossians 2:3 for the searcher of truth there are found to be, “The treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” To have wisdom and knowledge from the Word of God is more valuable to us then any earthy treasure Proverbs 8:18-11.

What I would like to share with you is how important and significant the number seven is in our Redemption. Redemption means the deliverance of a prisoner or hostage upon payment of a ransom. The number seven has the Biblical numerical meaning of perfection and completeness. The Lord Jesus Christ, in paying the price in full for our total redemption thus purchasing for us resurrection life, shed His blood seven times for us during the hours surrounding His Crucifixion.

Resurrection life does not just begin when we get to heaven, but resurrection life is for us now on earth. That is why it was so important for Jesus to have shed His blood seven times for us on His road to Calvary. Our redemption and resurrection life were made perfect and complete through the shedding of Jesus’ blood those seven times.

So let's look at each one of the seven ways in which The Lord Jesus Christ shed His blood for us and God’s Divine purposes for their significance in our lives today.
