It is Finished!

John 19:30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

It is a finished work! It is a completed work! You cannot finish a finished work. Our salvation is won by Jesus on the cross. Our sins are forgiven. We are forever righteous by His blood. Christ paid completely and perfectly for our total forgiveness, righteousness and every blessing.

The Greek word telesai is used for a servant when reporting to his master: "I have completed the work assigned to me."

You are not going to be healed because you are already or have been healed. It happened 2,000 years ago on the cross. Isaiah 53:5 declares, "By His stripes you are healed."

The work is finished. The victory is won. Our blessings have been bought by His blood! Only believe - it is finished!

  1. Dear Trevor,


    I would like to start by asking you two questions. One: Can you give an accurate definition of the phrase: "Lamb of God"?

    We all know that this is one of the names used for Jesus, like Messiah, Savior, Son of Man, or Christ. But exactly what is the importance of the name "Lamb of God"?

    And why is it important to me as a Catholic? The second question I would like to ask you is: Why the Catholic Church would offer The Holy Eucharist every day at every Mass throughout the world in over 3000 languages.

    What knowledge do they have that would make them feel compelled to do this for thousands of years? In answering this question, we'll see why the Catechism of the Catholic Church states that "The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life.'" (CC 1324)
