Not Connie, not your Pastor, not the press.
Jesus said “It is finished” He didn’t add a “but” any where in this statement.
He wanted us to know that He didn’t do a partial work when He paid the price for all our sins. He didn’t say I came and did some of the work and now you need to do work. Did HE leave us with things to do? Yes. But not works for our salvation. Not works for our healing, health, prosperity, forgiveness and freedom. The works HE left for us were for others. To heal the sick. preach the Gospel, raise the dead, open blind eyes.
Healing is for us to do. Health is for us to have as our inheritance.
>>>>>>>>> IT IS FINISHED <<<<<<<<
The Greek word translated “it is finished” is tetelestai, an accounting term that means “paid in full.” When Jesus uttered those words, He was declaring the debt owed to His Father was wiped away completely and forever. Not that Jesus wiped away any debt that He owed to the Father; rather, Jesus eliminated the debt owed by mankind—the debt of sin.
Thank You Jesus.
Many of us forget that also the power of sin and the power of Satan were finished. No longer do we have to suffer the “flaming arrows of Satan.” (Ephesians 6:16). Many Prayers and teachings of the Church are still giving Satan power and often even more power than Christ. Christ paid the price and defeated Satan. Satan no longer has power to mess with us. The only thing he has is LIES and DECEPTION. Seems many, including myself, are believing his lies at times and fall into his deceptive ways way too often. Again, I am not excluded in that. I find myself believing his lies at times myself. Thankfully they are not at often as they used to be and are not as long-lived. Filling ourselves with GOD’S TRUTH’S helps to fight the lies of Satan.
So we have an enemy? Yes. Can he do whatever he wants with us, causing sickness and disease, disasters or trials? Only if you believe his lies and deceptions. You are healed, prospered, forgiven and set free. you have power and authority because what HE did. You have the power of Jesus Christ living in you to raise the dead and heal the sick. to open blind eyes and live this amazing life here and NOW.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, (healed, prospered, forgiven, set-free) and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:9-10
