Does “Once and For All Sacrifice” Have a Dual Meaning?

I’m sure we have all heard how Yeshua’s sacrifice was a once and for all sacrifice, right?  It’s right there, in Hebrews 10:10 where we are told: It is in connection with this will that we have been separated for God and made holy, once and for all, through the offering of Yeshua the Messiah’s…
