Jesus Shed his Blood 5 times before the Cross!


Blessed not Cursed

Jesus’ redemptive work on the cross was so powerful because it set humanity free from the curse on so many levels. There were specific things He endured during the time leading up to His crucifixion and during His execution that provided the avenues for you and me to partake of the blessing of God. Where Adam and Eve failed in the Garden of Eden, Jesus provided the answer. He was scourged with a cat-o’-nine tails so that we could be healed of all sickness, disease, and infirmities. Among the many things Jesus endured for us was the crown of thorns that was placed on His head. It was through the blood that poured from His head that the blessing of God was made available to us in exchange for the curse of sin and death.
Religious depictions of this horrifying ordeal do not adequately provide understanding about what was taking place when Jesus was crowned with thorns. It wasn’t just a random method of torture, but it also had deep spiritual significance. Matthew 27:27-31 describes what happened to Jesus at the hands of the Roman soldiers:
Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. And when they had plaited a crown of thorns, they put it upon 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! And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head. And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
It is important to understand the significance of the crown of thorns being placed on Jesus’ head. The head is the seat of a man’s life, and it also is the point of contact on which the blessing is pronounced. Whenever someone receives the blessing via another anointed man or woman of God, it falls on the head. Similarly, when a curse rests on a person’s life, it rests on the head.
Jesus endured the torture of the thorny crown for a specific reason. The thorns represent the curse: all the frustrations, difficulties, defeats, afflictions, and sorrows of life. Jesus absorbed everything that took place in the Garden of Eden as a result of Adam and Eve’s sin. He shed blood through His head in order for the curse of sin and death to be nullified in our lives, enabling us to receive the blessing instead. The blood was payment for every curse that could invade our lives. Jesus paid for us to be delivered from the curse, and we are now blessed from the crown of our heads to the soles of our feet because of what He did for us.
Galatians 3:13, 14 says, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
Isn’t it exciting to know that through Jesus’ sacrifice we have been delivered from the curse and everything associated with it? That is good news! We are no longer subject to the torment of the enemy and his oppression. We have access to the blessing of God which enables us to live free from sin, sickness, poverty, emotional and mental torment, lack, and spiritual bondage. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are blessed! Jesus paid the price, now all you have to do is believe it and receive
