It is finished!
"It is finished!" (John 19:30)
During the time when Jesus Christ hung on the cross it was still the time of the law. The law, which God gave to the Jews through Moses, was still valid up until the moment of his death. Therefore, Jesus cried out before he died, “It is finished.” He came to fulfill the law and to establish a new covenant.
This cross was the closing point of the Old Covenant.
This cross is also the first letter and beginning of the wonderful gospel
of Christ. The first covenant was made by God with his people Israel
on Sinai. The last covenant, which is the new one, is being made by
God with all people. Every human being upon this earth is included!
Whether a person believes or does not believe. Whether they will serve
God or not. We need to understand this covenant of God, for this call
of God is directed to everyone! Whether they are a Muslim, a Hindu or
a Christian, they are all called to follow Jesus only! Every Jew was
under the first covenant; and according to the way he lived, this covenant
would either be a blessing or a curse for him. If he obeyed God, all
the blessings of this covenant of God would be promised to him. If he
did not obey, this covenant would be a curse for him. The same also
applies with the New Covenant, there is an abundant blessing for each
individual who believes in Jesus Christ and obeys his Word, but a curse
for everyone who is not obedient to the gospel of Jesus Christ. (See
2 Thes. 8-9)!
Jesus wants to take away the invisible burden of sin which lies upon each individual. Why don’t you also experience this freedom. Knock, and He will open up to you.
