The 7 places Jesus shed blood.
The Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus shed His blood there, to restore man's willpower. In the Garden of Eden, is where it was lost, when Eve conceded her will to the enemy, and her husband followed suit. It was there, where their will, to remain connected to the Father's will, was initially severed. It is when Satan became the Prince of the world. Whatever God you serve and obey, is the one who rule your life. At that moment Adam sacrificed the will of mankind.
In the Garden of Gethsemane is where Jesus shed his blood to buy it back. He went into the Garden fully aware that He would redeem our wills. He labored with Father in prayer, until He felt his flesh line up with His Spirit. He prayed three times, "not My will, but thy will be done". He knew the cup would be bitter, but with the help of His Father, that even if it didn't pass from Him, He could endure it.
The Bible said that He begin to sweat drops of blood, a medical phenomenon, known as hemathydrosis. It occurs when the body is under incredible stress and fear. The way the heart begins to pump, under such durest, causes the blood vessels to burst underneath the skin, and come out from the pores of skin. Thus the "sweating of blood".
The is mankind's greatest battle. Aligning our will, with the will of the Father. But we can plead the shed blood of Jesus, over everything that dares to exalt itself above the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. (2Cor 10:5)
We must pray and plead His shed Blood, to help us align our wills, with the will of Father, knowing that He knows what's best for us. Ask Him, to help us, keep Him as the preeminent force in our lives. He knows how to lead us and guide us. For He is Alpha and Omega, The First and The Last.
