A Promise For You From Bible Promises: [15/MAY/2019]
Topic: It Is Finished (Part 2)
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
It is finished means it is finished, there is no reservation. All things are ended and completed. Jesus sealed everything with this word just before He gave up the ghost on the cross for you and I. Remember He left no room for argument and unnecessary questioning about what has actually finished. But then, from the pages of the Scriptures, we could understand what He meant by it is finished which we discussed one of those things yesterday. Today, let’s look at the second thing out of the three things Jesus finished on the cross.
2) The Work of Reconciliation was Finished. Before the fall of man in the garden of Eden, man had a mutual and working relationship with God unhindered. God in His Almightiness usually comes down to fellowship with man in the garden. The Divine made the mortal a friend. So there was a cordial relationship between God and man. But when sin was introduced by Satan through Adam and Eve, there was a crack in the friendship. The heart of man became wicked and unholy for God to fellowship with, then came destruction upon man. Gen 1, 2, 3. 2 Cor 5:17-19
But God promised the coming of His Son to restore back His relationship with man. Gen 3:15. Therefore, Jesus came and died on the cross to reconcile us back to God. The blood of Jesus brought reconciliation between God and man again. When man lost his place in God through sin, Jesus blood forgave, washed and cleansed the sin of man and restored him back to God. And now, through the blood of Jesus Christ, we have full access to God the Father. Hallelujah!!! Friends, are you washed in this blood of reconciliation? Be washed.
Bible Promises Thought:
When man lost his place in God through sin, Jesus blood forgave, washed and cleaned the sin of man and restored him back to God.
