My reference was to the parallel between the Passover and Christ as our Passover (ex. 12:13).

Also Hebrews 9 addresses the sprinkling of the blood that has been shed for remission of sin.

Let me ask you Steve ..isnt the High priest a type of Christ?

When the high Priest offered his yearly sacrifice was not that a limited atonement?

It was a shadow of things to come.

That sacrifice was offered only for the sins of a limited number that was limited by the election of God..

Yes?

You're saying that Hebrews 9 tells us that the elect and only the elect are sprinkled with Christ's blood to expiate sin?

Hebrews 9 KJV
6   Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.
7   But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
8   The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
9   Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
10   Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.
Is this your reference? It's the only reference to the Holy Spirit I can locate but it doesn't seem to apply. I keep looking but can find no reference to believers being sprinkled with Christ's blood by the Holy Spirit. Is there any particular denomination that teaches this doctrinally?
