Without shedding of blood is no remission of sin
Christ did not have to shed His blood at the foundation of the world for the Old Testament elect to have become saved
By Brother Mike (6-23-15; 5 minutes)
We read in Hebrews 9,
Heb 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission [of sin] .
Now, those who would take you captive will say, see, without shedding of blood is no remission [of sin]. So, if Christ did not first shed His blood for sins at or before the foundation of the world, then none of the Old Testament saints could have been saved because no blood would have yet been shed. The idea is that Christ must first atone for sins before anyone can become saved. This is why Christ had to have atoned for sins at or before the world began so that the Old Testament elect could be saved just as well as the New Testament elect.
But, the problem with this kind of reasoning is that it fails to give Yahweh the glory with respect to His being Lord over time. What I mean is that He can at one point of time enter into the human race in time to atone for the sins of all the elect as He did in 33 AD, and then He can apply that blood of that atonement to the elect in the past as well as the elect in the present and future. This is due to the fact that Yahweh is not bound by time, or subject to its rules, but is, indeed, Master over time. Yes, he can accomplish something in time, and then apply that accomplishment to any time: past, present, or future. Therefore, the atonement does not need to take place first at the foundation of the world before anyone can be saved, but the atonement could even take place last of all on the Last Day, and Yahweh would still have been able to have saved all of His elect in the past because He can take that blood of the atonement, say, as an example, on the Last Day, and He can apply it backwards in time to all of His elect. He is not subject to time; He is outside of time; He is Master over time. Yahweh, the magnificent!
So, in conclusion, the statement, without shedding of blood is no remission of sin is a true statement in itself, but it doesn't mean that the shedding of blood had to have taken place in time first before all of Yahweh's elect could have been saved. No, rather, the shedding of blood could take place in time in 33 AD as it did when Christ atoned for sins, and that blood of that atonement could be applied to any time: past, present, or future to insure that all of Yahweh's elect would be saved throughout history. Therefore, as we read in Ephesians 5:6,
Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience .

Now, to the true elect of Yahweh, may the LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace .
