Summary: The Finish work of savation no human effort is needed, only what we try to added would ruin it.
It Is Finished "SHOUTS OF VICTORY!"
TEXT John 19: 19-30
Text Rev 21: 6
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
Rev. 21:6 and he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely
INTRO: The crucifixion is an extraordinary scene of darkness and despair! The events around the death of Christ portray a picture of evil:
The unfair trial, the agony of Jesus in the garden, the tragic loss of Judas, the scourging of Jesus, Peter’s 3 denials, the fleeing disciples, the crown of thorns, the mockery of the soldiers and the cries of "Crucify Him, Crucify Him!” the darkness that covered the land from noon to 3 PM, the earthquake, even the cry of Jesus "My God My God, why have you forsaken me?" - in the despair of these moments however, another cry comes from Christ. Near the moment of death Christ makes another pronouncement that some may have perceived as the cry of defeat, but in reality is was the great cry of VICTORY! "IT IS FINISHED!"
This was the cry of victory! It was followed by the cry of confidence "Into your hands I commit my spirit". This was a moment of victory for Christ and for man!
The Christian hears victory in these two final statements from the cross of Jesus; it opens a door for victory and is not an end to a tragic loss!
This 6th and 7th saying of Christ from the cross opens the door of victory for the one who believes in Christ, it is the grand moment of victory for God and man!
The Bible teaches us that in Christ we have victory over death and the Devil! Christ’s death and his sacrifice destroyed sin’s hold on man, a new way was opened to God, rather than a moment of defeat, and it was the moment of victory!
Because We can Shout The Victory Just What Did Jesus Finish On the Cross-.
I Would like to look at four things Jesus did from the cross and give us completion over them all
In A general sense,
Hebrews 10:4-10 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
1. God Will Concerning to Atonement
2. Gods Will Concerning the Scriptures
3. God’s Will Concerning the Law
4. God’s Will Concerning the Devil
A. Will Concerning to Atonement in Hebrew 10:5, 8-10 we’re told the sacrifice of Christ body on our behalf was God will. By the death of Jesus, we have been sanctified through the offering of his body once for all. He became our atonement for sin. He Finish the act of sin that could never be removes. By atonement it means that Jesus Cover our sins by his substitutionary death on the cross.
B. Gods Will Concerning the Scriptures. Contained within the Old Testament was a complete set of prophecies pertaining to Jesus death (cf. Luke 24:25-27, 44-46). When He new that each had been fulfilled, he said (It is Finished) At that moment the Scripture was Finished and we Can Shout the victory because of it.
C. God’s Will Concerning the Law No one could keep it but the moment Jesus said it was Finished the law it self was completed in a man the person of Christ.
1. Matt. 5:17 “ Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. Jesus Christ, who spoke these words, lived under the Law’s demands and without fail kept it fully and without exception. Yet when He died He bore its penalty on our behalf
2. Rom 8:4-4 10:4-4 Paul informs us, “for what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the that requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us (Not by us) (Romans 8:3-4)
