He often suffered since the foundation of the world but now, once in the end of the age, put away sin by sacrifice of Himself

Hebrews 9:26-28:

26 For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world [aionhath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.   [CHRIST HAS ALREADY DONE THISTHIS IS NOT IN THE FUTURE]

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
