Word of the Day... March 30, 2013

Therefore when Jesus had received the sour
wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed
His head and gave up His spirit John 19:30
Jesus was born to die from the very beginning.  He came to earth to shed His blood and die for each and every one of us, so that we might live.  He accomplished all that He had come to earth to do and He summed it up in three simple words:

“It Is Finished.”

Jesus death on the cross dealt a mighty blow to Satan and his demons.  He broke the power of the devil who had the power of death (Heb2:14).  This means that we are set free.  We no longer have to be under the power of sin.  Jesus finished that stronghold of Satan over all humanity.

Our salvation was made complete at the cross.  Every single one of our sins were transferred to Jesus as He hung on that cross.  He is the Lord who keeps on giving.  When He died on that cross He held nothing back.  His righteousness was transferred to our account.  When we die and stand before God, He won’t see our sins and filth.  He will see the shed blood of His precious Son Jesus.

At the cross all of Jesus suffering was finished.  Never ever again will He ever experience pain at the hands of wicked men. When He comes again it will be with all of the glory of the Lord!!! 

So when Jesus cried out those words, “It Is Finished” It was God’s plan completed for anyone who wants salvation and new life through Christ Jesus.  It is Finished….  So now the world can rejoice!!!  Have a Simply Heavenly Saturday!!!
