A Promise For You From Bible Promises: [14/MAY/2019]
Topic: It Is Finished (Part 1)
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed. his head, and gave up the ghost. John 19:30.
Read: John 17:1-9
During the excruciating pain on the cross to purchase the salvation of the world through His precious blood, Jesus cried aloud, “I thirst”. In response to His cry, He was given vinegar (sour wine) and When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head and gave up the ghost. When He said, it is finished He gave up the ghost leaving no explanation as to what is finished behind.
In verse 4 of John chapter 17, Jesus said, I have glorified thee on the earth: I have FINISHED the WORK which thou gavest me to do. What is the work He finished before giving up the ghost on the cross? Let’s look at three of this work, but today, we shall look at one.
1) The work of sin was finished. Sin (Satanic Identity Number) separated man from God in the garden of Eden and Matthew 1:21 says, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins”. 1 John 3:8 says the devil sinned from the beginning and this is the reason Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil which sin is one of them. It is finished means, Completed; ended; done; perfected. Sin is finished by Jesus, therefore sin should not have dominion over you anymore because whatever is finished is completely finished. Knowing that sin is finished is great but embracing this truth by giving your life to Jesus who has finished this is greater.
