Finished!

04182014.mmitm.mjb2

Was every claim Jesus made about Himself true?
Was Jesus the spotless Lamb of God when He offered Himself for our sins?
Was Jesus’ shed blood completely acceptable to God to cleanse and justify us?
Did Jesus’ death fully satisfy God’s justice and fully demonstrate His love?
When Jesus proclaimed “It is finished” was the provision for our salvation complete and certain?

The answer to every question is an emphatic “YES!”
That “YES!” is proclaimed in the following Scripture…

Let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead…  Acts 4:10 NKJV

If Jesus’ claims were false,
If He was not sinless,
If His blood was not an acceptable sacrifice,
If His death did not satisfy God’s justice or fully demonstrate His love,
If Jesus did not finish the work of your salvation, then…
God would have rejected Him and left Him in the tomb!

God raised Jesus from the dead because everything about Him—His words, His life, His death— are all true! It is Jesus’ resurrection from the dead that vindicates and validates all His redeeming work and your salvation.

As a believer in the Gospel, your hope is sure, your salvation is certain, your forgiveness is real, your soul is saved…He lives…it is FINISHED!

Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith: Christ was revealed in a human body and vindicated by the Spirit. He was seen by angels and announced to the nations. He was believed in throughout the world and taken to heaven in glory. 1 Timothy 3:16 NLT

    I love the fact that Jesus did not say, I am finished but “It is finished”. Thus, sealing our hope through Him. His work on the Cross was sculpted to such perfection, that He had to cry out “It is finished!”

    Amen! Love this!

    If we did not praise Christ for so great a salvation, the stones would cry out!

    For the past few years I have been pondering what “it is finished” means to me.
    “In the beginning…….it is finished”
    From the very first words of the Bible, to the end,”it is finished.
    I have everything that I need to live that the Bible teaches me. From the beginning to the end, to bring glory to Him on my journey through life. Praise and Glory to Him!
