It Is Finished


Hello, my dear readers! I am so grateful to God could come back again to the blog after been awhile not active do blogging. My post this evening coincides with Good Friday and this post is revision of my old post titled “By His Wound We are Healed” I hope and pray this post could be a reflection for all us in Good Friday. Thank you and God bless.

Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”(Matthew 26:39)

Bible verse above is the prayer of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane before He arrested. We all know that is the beginning of the series of Jesus’ suffering. Jesus will experience so many terrible suffering in order to fulfill God’s will. Jesus was willing to commit all that just for us. Supposed we are the ones who receive it all, but it was Jesus who replace all our sins and redeem with His sacrifice. Why Jesus was willing to do all of this? There are three reasons. It all started from how much God’s love to us as He said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Jesus loves us so much, and He knows very well how great the love of the Father for us, and for that He willing to undergo a series of terrible processes in order to fulfil the work of salvation according to the Father’s will  which is given to everyone. All is about love. Because of love, Jesus was willing to replace us and bore all of our sins. Love can move Father’s heart to deliver us from all sins. Jesus loves us so much, and He knows very well how great the love of the Father for us, and for that He willing to undergo a series of terrible processes in order to fulfil the work of salvation according to the Father’s will  which is given to everyone.

The second reason is Jesus strongly adheres to His Father will. Did Jesus know how horrible what should He pass? Yes of course. Even in His position as human, Jesus felt so scared and there was a desire to avoid the terrible thing that had to bear. We can see Jesus’ fear at that moment from his word: “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me” But because of His great obedience and love  Jesus willingly surrender all to the Father’s hand. At that time Jesus didn’t say: “Father, by Your power please deliver me from this terrible suffering” But Jesus said, “Yet not as I will, but as you will”

The third reason is all of what Jesus did and experienced in this world was a fulfilment. Was prophesied in the book of Isaiah,

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”(Isaiah 53:5-6)

Let us look some of Jesus’ fulfilment.  It is written in Isaiah 53:7: He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. What is written in that verse fulfilled by Jesus in Matthew 27:12-14: And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing. Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly. Another proof of the fulfilment of Jesus is when He cried out with loud voice at the cross: “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Long time before this happened, it was written in Psalm 22:2:” O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear; And in the night season, and am not silent” That is all of Jesus’ fulfilment and all the fulfilment marked by His word before He died: “it is finished” (John 19:30) Yes, the fulfilments of God’s wish to save us from perish and move us into the eternal salvation. Jesus completed perfectly a remarkable work of salvation for all of us. The book of Hebrews said, and as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation. (Hebrews 9:27-28) One for all and forever. Just once Jesus was present in the world as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Later He will come a second time, but no longer to solve the problem of sin, because “it is finished” He did, but to pick us up, those who have obeyed and faithfully loved Him And appreciate what He has done by remaining holy without blemish.

My dear friends, this evening, let’s we take a special time to give thanks and heartfelt gratitude for all the sacrifice of Christ on the cross for all of us. Today if we can go to the pure and holy throne of God without fear, if we could hear his voice and feel His presence this time, all of it is the fruit of Christ’s redemptive work. When people give a special gift to us, it means that people love and care for us.  It is same as our Lord. He gives us very, very special gift. That is the greatest gift; there is no greater love than this. Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away our sins. Jesus has completed a series of Father’s will with thoroughly and perfect, so we were supposed to perish now been granted of the eternal salvation. And then make sure to avoid all of Christ’s sacrifice be in vain upon us. Living in Divine truth, be faithful to Him and manifest His love significantly with proclaim god’s love to others. Amen.

  7. Jesus was never frightened Karina, there is no fear in Love and Jesus The Living Word is Love because He is One with The Father in Spirit and was conceived by The Holy Spirit, they are The Godhead or Trinity as we call Them today, both meaning Three in One.

    Jesus never Sinned so He never feared Torment, He was always Perfected in Love which is what we are to Aim for too as the Scriptures below confirm. Jesus knew He would be separated from His Father when He bore our Sin on the Cross and that is what He was referring to when He said to His Father your will be done not mine and it is why He said on the Cross; “Father why have thou forsaking me”, He had become fully human carrying our Sin and good and evil cannot be in Unity.

    1John 4:16-19 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made Perfect in Love. We Love Him because He first Loved us.K.J.V

    Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect.

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto Perfection not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,

    2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God.

    2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness: That the man of God may be Perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

    2 Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver but also of wood and of earth and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

    2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be Perfect be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

    Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne.
