“IT IS FINISHED”

Immersion Into New Life

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, I thirst.  Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar:  and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His Mouth.  Whe Jesus therefore had received the vinegar He said, It is finished and He bowed His Head, and gave up the ghost (John 19: 28-30; see also Hebrews 9: 14)

“It is finished”:  the greatest Words that any sinner could ever hear for they meant, in effect, that the world’s (man’s) debt was paid; every iota of the Law was fulfilled.  Jesus KNEW ALL THINGS were NOW accomplished!  As it was then; so it is NOW!

God, Who is rich in Mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, quickened us together with Christ.  Our New Life is imparted to us through our personal identification with Christ in His death and resurrection.  It is by GRACE we are saved; and He has raised us up together (Romans 6: 3-5) and made us sit together in heavenly places IN Christ Jesus.  For we are God’s workmanship, created IN Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has BEFORE ORDAINED that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2: 4-10)!

Thank You Father; I am filled with JOY as I proclaim these words of promise:  “I will praise You; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:  marvelous are Your works; that my soul knows right well.  My substance was not hid from You, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.  Your eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Your book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them” (Psalm 139: 13-18).

These verses speak of the Son of God, yet, in Christ, we are also made ALIVE.  God’s plan for each of us is fulfilled in and through our acceptance of Jesus as Lord.  It is God’s ETERNAL BLESSING of ETERNAL LIFE  through our IMMERSION into His only Son, Jesus Christ.

There are many people today, who still do not realize the VICTORY they have in and through Jesus.  It is my personal prayer that all will come to KNOW who they are IN JESUS and that no matter what they face; they have no cause for worry because THERE IS JESUS AND HE IS MIGHTY TO SAVE and HE HAS WON THE VICTORY OVER ALL POWERS OF DARKNESS AND DEATH!  IT IS FINISHED!  🙂  Hallelujah!

  1. “You are blessed, very richly blessed. Never forget that you have My love and protection. Never forget, too, that you are guided. Every word, every letter, every meeting, God-planned and God-blessed. Just feel that, know that there are privileges and protections for you all along your journey.”

    God’s Favor

    “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus” (Luke 1:30-31).

    Scripture Focus: Luke 1:26-37

    Every married Jewish woman coveted the promised role of mother to the Messiah, but for a young teenager named Mary, it was probably the furthest thing from her mind. Betrothed to Joseph, her actual marriage had yet to take place. Imagine her surprise when the angel appeared proclaiming his amazing news. What had she done to find favor with God? Why had He chosen her? Could this be a mistake?

    It is revealed in her story that even when she realized what the consequences could be—rejection, possibly even death—she humbled herself to God’s will. The angel proclaimed, “Do not be afraid,” and she believed him at this word. Mary found favor with God because her heart was open to His leading, not because of anything she did, but because of her willingness to humble herself before Him, no matter the cost. Imagine what she would have missed out on had she turned her back on the calling. Imagine what we miss out on every day because we are afraid to step out and say yes to God.
