Leviticus 16:14 And he shall take of the blood 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 his finger seven times.The blood was applied to the mercy seat. It was applied around the mercy seat. It was applied seven times. The reason God can have mercy on me is because of the blood of the substitutionary sacrifice. Jesus paid my sin debt. The Lamb took my punishment. I can hear from God in mercy because my sins have been paid for by someone who could. I couldn’t pay my own sin debt. I needed someone that God had chosen that could. I needed someone perfect to pay my sin debt. That was done by the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. Thank God that He made a way for my sins to be taken care of. I will worship Him. I will love Him. I will serve Him!
