THE 7 PLACES JESUS SHED HIS BLOOD & THEIR SIGNIFICANCE

Beloved, even as we celebrate the Passover Feast and Resurrection weekend in this season, allow me to draw your attention to the significance of Jesus’ death on the cross and the shedding of His blood. It is important for us to know what the Lord has done for us and to walk in His victory. As you may already know, God declares in His Word that blood shall be the only means of atonement. Heb 9:22 “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood, and without shedding of blood is no remission.” It is the blood of Jesus that bought our freedom for us.

 

You may also know that 7 is the number of God. If you like, you can call it His signature because in u about every one of His works, you will find this number represented. For example, when giving Aaron instructions for the atonement on the mercy seat, God said the blood was to be sprinkled there 7 times. “And he shall take of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with finger seven times.” (Leviticus 16:17).

 

Now, take note that God also had Jesus shed His blood at 7 places, each instance with its own significance. I will therefore now take you through the process of His death on the cross for us and the 7 losses His blood repurchased for us. When you understand what the blood of Jesus did for you, you will never again stay in bondage in any area of your life. No, you will demand your freedom! For know this, inasmuch as Jesus has already won the victory, yet we find God’s people still oppressed. Why is this? Because Jesus took the victory for us but the Devil is still squatting on the property. It is upon us to serve him with the eviction notice. This is ENFORCING THE VICTORY OF CHRIST. Make no mistake, Satan is no gentleman; he will not go voluntarily just because Jesus defeated him on the cross, no, HE MUST BE FORCED OUT!

 

Jesus has done all He could do to free you and I. The rest is upto us. If we go after the enemy, he will have to give up and let go of what belongs to us, but if we do not demand it, then the situation will remain just as if Jesus never came in the first place. Which is why you need to hear this and take action.

 

Now see this verse: Isa 53:5 “But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on Him; and with His stripes we ourselves are healed.” You can see right there different reasons for the sufferings of the Master. From the wounds, bruises, chastisements and stripes. There is more, just read on.

 

SO HERE IS THE LIST OF THEM: 

 

1.       Jesus shed blood at the Garden of Gethsemane.

Verse where it happened: Luke 22:44 “And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”

What was redeemed there: Our Willpower.

It was in the Garden of Eden that Adam lost his willpower i.e. ability to say no to sin and to all that is evil and of the flesh and it is in in another Garden (Gethsemane) that Jesus gained this power back for us i.e. when He said no to following His own desires. When Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane, He knew full well what He was going to redeem for us there: our willpower. So when he was tested, He finally prayed: “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done”.

Now, through Christ we have power to say no to sin, every kind of bondage and selfish self-seeking that we may get into.

I DECLARE TO YOU: RECEIVE POWER TO SAY NO TO YOUR WILL AND YES TO THE WILL OF GOD TODAY, IN JESUS NAME!

 

2.       He shed blood at the whipping post.

Verse where it happened: Mat 27:26 “Then he released Barabbas to them. And when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.”

What was redeemed there: Our Health.

It is well known that there are 39 root-diseases in the world. Jesus while being whipped at the post was given 39 lashes. Each one of those beatings was for the sake of every sickness man would ever suffer for. Let me draw your attention to the truth that that every sickness is a curse for breaking the law of God. It is the blood of Jesus that breaks this curse for us. There is now no disease that Jesus cannot heal. His body was broken up so that ours can be made whole. However, these sicknesses may also come due to negligence and later be enforced by the kingdom of darkness.

Jesus also symbolized this breaking of His body in the breaking of the bread at the Last Supper; He was showing how His body would be broken for our healing. Therefore, everyone who receives Him qualifies to receive His healing power. The curse of sickness is broken by His blood!

 

Isaiah 53:5 KJV “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

The scourge was the cruelest form of punishment as one was whipped 39 times using a whip known then as a ‘cat of nine tails’. This whip had nine strands each with pieces of sharp bones and metal and a heavy piece of lead at the end of the cord. According to the law, one could be whipped 40 times but many times they would stop one short of it at 39. This was because 40 whips were often found fatal. However, the whip left one totally broken. Psalms 129:3 says, “The plowers plowed upon my back…” and Isaiah 50:6 says, “I gave my back to the smiters; and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair.” Jesus went through untold suffering so that we may be healed.

 

I DECREE TO YOU: I COMMAND EVERY SICKNESS AND DISEASE TO LEAVE YOUR IFE IN JESUS NAME! YOUR HEALING HAS BEEN PAID FOR BY THE MASTER, YOU ARE FREE NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AMEN.

 

3.       He shed blood internally – from the intense beating.

Verse where it happened: Mat 27:26 “Then he released Barabbas to them. And when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.”

What was redeemed: Our forgiveness and liberty from the hold of transgressions and iniquities.

Isa 53:5 also says, “But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was on Him; and with His stripes we ourselves are healed.”

Jesus, out of the severe beatings He underwent also suffered from many internal injuries. This was to liberate us from the power of iniquity and transgressions. He had internal wounds and bruises. The blood-shed within was to liberate us from the power of transgressions and iniquities so we can a life free life of curses. Those generational and ancestral curses must go in Jesus name! And now any breach in our physical, emotional and spiritual can also be healed. Hallelujah!

 

A transgression is something that you do with full knowledge that it is a wrong thing to do. It is willful sin.

Iniquity is a weakness or fault you were born with. For example your mother had anger, your grandmother had it, and so do you. It is a generational sin that is handed over. For example, Abraham had a lying problem, so did Isaac and so did Jacob. Jesus came to break the hold of these from us.

I DECREE TO YOU: I COMMAND EVERY GRIP OF TRANSGRESSION AND INIQUITY TO BREAK OFF FROM YOUR LIFE, NOW! IN Jesus NAME!!! BY THE BLOOD OF Jesus, LET THERE BE RESTORATION OF WHOLENESS IN YOUR LIFE! NO MORE TRANSGRESSION, NO MORE INIQUITY, IN Jesus NAME!

 

4.       He shed blood when they put the crown of thorns on His head.

Verse where it happened: Mat 27:29 “And plaiting a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!”

What was redeemed: Our peace of mind and healing from all mental torment.

This was to liberate our minds. The word of God says ‘the chastisement of our peace was UPON Him’. The peace which the enemy took from us, God restored it again in Jesus. Now the enemy does not have to afflict our minds and keep them in bondage anymore. All mental bondage and strongholds were removed from us when they pressed the thorns into Jesus’ head. He suffered and shed blood from His head so that our minds can be free. I have seen a band tied around the minds of men in the realm of the spirit meant to keep them from making the right decision for their destinies, but as I commanded them to break, they all fell off in Jesus name! Hallelujah!!! Our minds can now be free! Also you may know: if the enemy can oppress our minds, then he can also control our destinies. By freeing us from all bondage and diseases of the mind, Jesus has also freed our destinies. No sickness, disease, stress or condition of the mind can hold us back to the glory of God.

 

I DECREE TO YOU: I BREAK OFF ALL OPPRESSION OF THE MIND FROM YOU RIGHT NOW, IN JESUS NAME! I COMMAND STRESS TO LEAVE YOU NOW, IN JESUS NAME! I COMMAND ALL WITCHCRAFT OF THE MIND TO RELEASE YOU NOW IN JESUS NAME! I COMMAND ALL BLACK BANDS AND BALLS SENT AGAINST YOU TO CATCH FIRE AND BURN TO ASHES IN JESUS NAME! GO AND WALK IN VICTORY AND IN YOUR DESTINY IN JESUS NAME! BE LOOSED TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES FOR YOUR DESTINY, NOW! IN JESUS NAME!

 

5.       He shed blood when they pierced His hands.

Verse where it happened: Mat 27:35 “And they crucified Him, dividing His garments, casting a lot; so that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, “They parted My garments among them, and they cast a lot for My clothing.””

What was redeemed: power to succeed, prosper and ability to receive spiritual inheritance.

Here Jesus freed us to receive our inheritance. Until then, we could not receive what is ours reason being our hands were still defiled by sin. Satan could claim before God that we were not qualified to receive anything and it would be so. When the blood oozed from the palms of Jesus, it was to take away the curse on the work of our hands, to take away the sin that was testifying against us, and to free us to lift our hands to God in worship. The scriptures speak of lifting ‘holy hands’ to God. Now we can do that because our hands have been purified through the blood of Jesus. Also the work of our hands can be blessed because the curse that was on the work of our hands was lifted by His wounded hands. Now everything we do can prosper!

 

I DECREE TO YOU: I COMMAND EVERY CURSE PRONOUNCED ON THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS TO BREAK IN JESUS NAME; I COMMAND EVERY BONDAGE OF HANDS TO LET YOU GO IN JESUS NAME; I COMMAND A DIVINE CLEANSING UPON YOUR HANDS BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS; LET YOUR INHERITANCE BE RESTORED BACK TO YOU AND MAY YOU RECEIVE POWER TO PROSPER FROM TODAY, IN JESUS NAME!!!

 

6.       He shed blood when they pierced His feet.

Verse where it happened: Mat 27:35 “And they crucified Him, dividing His garments, casting a lot; so that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, “They parted My garments among them, and they cast a lot for My clothing.””

What was redeemed: our dominion and authority.

 

Disobedience (in Adam) led to our loss of dominion, but the shed but of Jesus bought it back for us. Dominion is in the place of our feet. That is where we subject every power that rises against us. Anything that is under your feet is under your power. God says “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you…” (Joshua 1:3). Now we can go and take back our cities, towns, families, destinies, because Jesus has restored us to the place of power over the enemy. Luke 10:19 says “Behold, I give to you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the authority of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you.” This is dominion. Through the blood Jesus shed when they nailed His feet on the cross, our feet have also been cleansed from all manner of defilement and we now able to stand before the enemy, to resist him, and to demand that he gives back what is ours. Hallelujah! I have prayed over the feet of many and as I applied the blood, yokes broke off from them!!! In one instance, I anointed the feet of one of my sons while visiting in his house and immediately the yokes broke and God opened His eyes and showed him some key areas of his life that were locked. But from that moment they were free, and right now he is enjoying an abundant life!

 

I DECREE TO YOU: LET THE BLOOD OF JESUS FLOW OVER YOUR FEET RIGHT NOW IN JESUS NAME; LET ALL DEFILEMENT BE WASHED AWAY FROM YOUR FEET IN JESUS NAME; LET YOUR DOMINION BE RESTORED TO YOU AND MAY GOD MAKE ALL YOUR ENEMIES TO BE SUBJECT UNTO YOU IN JESUS NAME!!! YOU CAN NOW GO FOR WHAT WAS YOURS, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE IT BACK, IN JESUS NAME!

 

 

7.       Blood came forth when they pierced his side.

Verse where it happened: John 19:34 “But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a lance, and instantly there came out blood and water.”

What was redeemed: wholeness of heart and fullness of joy.

Jesus went through great heartbreak right from the moment He entered into Jerusalem. First, He was rejected and betrayed by Judas, then the crowd before Pilate also rejected and refused Him preferring Barnabas to be given to them, then He saw His mother watch Him while naked on the cross, then He felt abandoned by the Father too when He cried, ‘My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?’ Betrayal, grief, abandonment, rejection… these are things which gripped the heart of the Master and caused Him much anguish even as He hung on the cross. It was not easy. It is medically proved that a high level of agony can cause water to collect around the heart.

 

When Jesus died, the soldiers did not pierce His heart, only His side. But when they did, blood and water came out, showing that he literally died of a broken heart. When Jesus first begun His ministry, He said God has sent Him to ‘heal the broken-hearted’. So beloved, the enemy may have done many things to crush your heart and will to live, you may have gone through many things at the hands of men, but when we come to Jesus, broken hearts are made new again. I remember some time back God spoke to me and said, ‘I the Lord do not mend; I make all things new’.

 

Beloved, regardless of what has been done against you by anyone to break your heart, the heart of Jesus was broken so that yours can be made whole again. Broken not by the spear, but by the anguish, and the blood that came from there was to make your heart whole again. You can have a brand new heart from the Master today. You can have your joy restored again. No more sad and gloomy and depressed days, for joy has been repurchased back for you! But, why blood and water? The water likewise cleanses the defiled water in our bodies. The evil water that has been passed to us from generation to generation is broken as the water from the body of Christ now purifies and fills our lives. Now the enemy can defile our bodies no more; we are cleansed! Hallelujah!!!

 

I DECLARE TO YOU: TO THE BROKEN-HEARTED, LET THE LORD ARISE IN HIS POWER AND GIVE YOU A NEW HEART IN JESUS NAME; I COMMAND ALL HEAVINESS AND GLOOM TO LEAVE YOUR LIFE IN JESUS NAME; LET YOUR SORROW BE REPLACED WITH JOY AND MAY THE BLOOD OF JESUS PURIFY YOUR HEART FROM ALL BROKENNESS YOU HAVE HAD TO ENDURE; BE HEALED AND BE MADE FULLY WHOLE IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

 

And of course, with all said and done, Jesus said ‘IT IS FINISHED’, showing that the work of redeeming mankind was completed. Now man could be restored back to God. The curtain in the temple was ripped from top to bottom. A new and a living way had been made into the holiest, a new way through the breaking of the body of Christ, through His blood. Now we may boldly approach the throne of the Father and obtain mercy and find grace to help us in our times of need. What a good God! What a loving Savior! What a great work of redemption! What manner of great restoration! What great freedom has been purchased for us; and that only through THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

 

This blood that was shed on the cross will never lose its power. Now we are not just restored to what we lost in the Garden of Eden (Adam’s state as son of God) but we are given another second nature; we are fashioned after Jesus’ state as Son of God. We are not of the order of the first Adam anymore, but of the second, raised from the dead, and with glorious power! Think about Jesus where He is right now. How glorious do you imagine Him to be? This is the same state God has elevated you to.

 

But some may say, ‘How come I do not look like this?’ See this verse: 1 John 3:2 ‘Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be. But we know that when He shall be revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.’ Also 1 John 4:17 tells us ‘…as He is, so also we are in this world.’ It may not seem so in the physical beloved, but in the spiritual, we are glorious!!! And the day comes when it shall be as much physical as it is now spiritually, AMEN!

 

There you have it, go now and walk in nothing less than your freedom. God bless you in Jesus name!
