The last words uttered by the Savior just before He died on the cross were, “It is finished.” He was not referring to the end of His life or ministry, but of His substitutionary sufferings on the cross which He would complete by His death which occurred immediately following His shout, “It is finished.”
He was declaring He had finished the special work of salvation which the Father had given Him to accomplish. We speak of “the finished work” of the Messiah because there is nothing left to be done to provide man’s salvation. God has done it all in the person and work of His Son and He raised Him from the dead as the proof of that very fact.
The work of God in Messiah is a once-and-for-all work of God accomplished in total by the death of Yeshua the Messiah on the cross. The Messiah’s death was distinctly a work accomplished for the entire world! This is the good news which we are appointed to proclaim to all the world. Thank you so much again for your time, help and prayers.
So let’s continue to share the gospel and to pray for lost, hurting and disillusioned people. May our God of Light and Life break through in their circumstances, no matter how impossible they may seem. He is the only Perfect One whose finished work is more than sufficient for any and all needs.
Praise His Holy Name!!
