It is FinishedOn the cross, Jesus lifted his voice in victory, “It is finished!” (Jn 19:30)
This was the cry of a Roman general when had won a victory and the foe was vanquished.
-When the strength of the enemy was decimated.
-When the hope of the enemy was drained.
-When the valor of the enemy had waned.
-When the purposes of the enemy had been thwarted.
-When the desire of the enemy had been frustrated…
-When the battle plan was completed and the Enemy was at last defeated, the General would shout, “IT IS FINISHED!”
From the Cross—torn, scorned, scourged, beaten, bruised, and bloodied, and seemingly knocked out—with what might have APPEARED TO MANY a desperate, death wail, Jesus cried out in reality HIS VICTORY SHOUT,…“It is finished!”
BUT WHAT WAS FINISHED!
-Not His life—He would rise again.
-Not His purpose—it was right on track.
-Not his plan—it would be fulfilled.
-Not his hope—“for the joy set before Him, He suffered”
-Not our hope!—For in Him we have an unfading assurance of eternal life!
-Sin is finished!
-Death is finished!
-The Ceremonial and Levitical Law is finished for Christ fulfilled the Law!
-The plan of salvation is finished!
-Christ’s Redemptive Work is finished!---“Whosoever will…come!” (Revelation 22:17)
