Here is some more of what I believe...with Bible proofs. God Bless. Bro. Dallas THE MERCY SEAT (Exodus 25:17, 22) The Mercy Seat was the lid or covering on top of the Ark of the Covenant. Cf. Heb. 9:5. It was the place where the blood of the sacrifice was sprinkled to make atonement for the sinner. It was the place where justice and mercy met. The blood of the innocent on the mercy seat met the demands of the Law. It was the O. T. throne of grace. Christ is our Mercy Seat (Rom. 3:25; I Jn. 2:2; 4:10; Rom. 5:6, 8, 10). The "propitiation for our sins" is the turning away of wrath by an offering. God's justice is satisfied with the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins. He turns His own wrath away with His own blood. Our sins debt has now been paid in full. God's holiness is satisfied, and His wrath is turned away.
