I remember reading those words that Jesus spoke as HE gave His life for us . I remembered thinking HE was just telling us HE was now dying and thats what finished meant. We often hear it still being used in that context, or as a threat on your or someone’s life, “I’ll finish you”, “It will finish me.”
What was Jesus really wanting us to know?
He was telling us there was no more for us to do, He had finished it all! He wanted us to rely on that fact, that HE did it all and there was nothing for us to do but believe on His finished work at the cross. He either did it all or He did nothing at all. God clearly spoke to me one day that if I didn’t believe that He died for my salvation as well as to be healed, prospered, forgiven, and free, then He sent His Son for nothing. (in different words).
We have absolutely nothing to do but believe. Yet how do I get to the place where I believe and receive all His finished work? Start by renewing your mind to His Truths, starving your unbelief by reading The Word and knowing you have an inheritance that HE paid for in full ~ “It is finished”.
We are now saved = Sozo = healed, prospered, forgiven and set free!
