It Is Finished

What is finished? He is finished with the task of fulfilling the prophecies of the Old Testament. He is finished with his obedience to God’s law in our place. He is finished with the task of humiliation where he sacrificed the use of his strength and authority in order to live and die for us. He is finished with the act of atonement as he has now born the fullness of God’s wrath and satisfied the demands of Justice. He is finished with redemption whereby he has paid the price of bringing us back to God by the shedding of his blood. He is finished destroying the enmity between fallen humanity and God which has existed since the sin of our first parents. He is finished with the dreadful courtroom scene in which he has established for all the wonderful verdict of God’s grace – “there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ.” He is finished crushing the head of Satan by his victory over sin and guilt. And, O yes, He is finished with death and dying. ~ Author Unknown
