Good Friday – It Is Finished

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

The darkest day in the world has also become the most triumphant day for humanity. Jesus becoming the sacrifice for our sins. The Lamb that was slain by the world. Jesus never knew sin but was killed for our sins. This moment will change the world forever, and will give us life for eternity.

The evil that was demonstrated is incomprehensible from his own disciple Judas betrayal, to the rejection from his own Jewish people, and the brutal beating and murder carried out by the Romans.

(Luke 22:48) “But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?”

Judas sold The Son of God for 10 pieces of silver, this deceitful act will start the beginning of Jesus crucifixion.   Judas decided he loved money more than God. He later would regret his actions, but it was too late, the consequences are irreversible.

(Matthew 27:22) “”What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called the Messiah?” Pilate asked. They all answered, “Crucify him!”

Jesus was sinless and he never committed a crime, but the Jewish people rejected him and demanded he be crucified. Jesus came not only to save us from our sins but to also teach the true doctrine of God. The high priests have become corrupted and followed there own traditions rather the true ways of our Lord.

(John 19:30) “When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”

“It is Finished” declared the Lord on the Cross. Nobody probably understood what he meant at the time, but he fulfilled all the prophecies of the coming Messiah and most importantly he saves us all from our sins.

This Good Friday let’s not forget to give thanks and remember the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us all.  By his blood we are redeemed, By his Stripes we are healed, in Jesus name Amen

    It is True unashamedofjesus that we can’t earn our Salvation, it is a free gift but we will show we have it. We put our Carnal flesh to death and aim to be perfected in Love.

    Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers/ sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. or if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons/daughters of God.

    Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

    Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

    2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God

    We Aim to be perfected in Love…..

    Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.

    Philippians 3:14-16 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, where to we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

    2Timithy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

    1John 4:16-19 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us.

    2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

    We do not continue to sin.

    1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.

    John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

    1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

    1 John 3: 1-11 ( 6-7 ) Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man/woman deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.

    Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. or if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

    1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith hebideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.
