THE PRAYER OF APPROPRIATION
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. Galatians 3:13
Because of Adam's sin in the garden eons ago all of mankind was cursed with the consequences of his disobedience. Sickness, disease and infirmity, poverty, lack, debt and eternal death came barreling down the bloodlines of humanity!
In order to stop the curse, a blood sacrifice had to be made, mankind's only hope. God chose the only offering for the sins of man, His own Son, Jesus, the spotless Lamb of God. In the old covenant the high priest would slay a lamb and take the blood into the holy of hollies where he would smear it on the mercy seat seven times, signifying the seven places that Jesus bled for us!
Then a second lamb would be sent into the wilderness after having had the curses of the law spoken over it representing the sins of man being placed upon the sacrifice. As Jesus bled for us in seven places, all the sins, transgressions and trespasses were heaped upon the Savior becoming a curse for us!
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. II Corinthians 5:21
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
