There is a man in the Bible, by the name of Simeon, who is spoken about in the Gospel of Luke.

And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. (Luke 2:25-26)

It is important to note here that the Holy Ghost (Spirit) was upon this man Simeon. In other words Simeon was being ministered to by the Lord, and the Lord revealed to him that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. I remind you once again that the word Christ means Messiah, so the Lord was letting Simeon know that he would in fact see the Messiah, with his own two eyes, before he left this earth. It is also important to note that this man was waiting for the consolation of Israel. This man was described as being just (righteous) and devout, so you know that he probably knew the scriptures very well. The consolation of Israel was to be found in the Messiah and He would be for the redemption of the people of Israel.

And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. (Luke 2:27-32)

Jesus Christ shed His very own BLOOD for the SINS of Israel and the Nations (Gentiles) of the world. Without a BLOOD atonement a person is still in their sins, and should they DIE in that condition, they would spend eternity in Hell!
