"It is finished!" John 19:30. What Christ is referring to here is the

accomplished salvation of the people. What that means is that when we are


we do not have to put out burnt saccrifices up to Him. It is no longer needed

because Christ died for us, which took away the iniquities of our sin. He did

this out of great love for us. This is exemplified in John 3:16 "For God so

loved the world that he gave his only begotton son that who so ever belief in

him shall have eternall life!". That verse is very important to us, or should be,

because in a way, one could base his/her relationship with the Lord upon it.


reason is because God loved us so much that he did that for us so that is the

least that we could do. In Genesis 3:15 it says that we will be punished for our

sins. Yes, that is true, but God will forgive and forget them if we repent. You

see this is not possible without Jesus dying for our sins. In Romans 5:6-8 it

says that Christ died for all of us. Even the bad ones, ALL. This is a sign of

the Victory that Christ had won a victory here. The reason is because of all of

the lifes that he saved and will later be saved. In Romans 5 it says that Jesus

died for All Sinners! We are all sinners so his death was for all.

When Jesus says that "It is finished", he can also be reffering to the older

predictions of Christs' life. There is one in particular that it might have been

talking about in Isaiah. That is the one in which Isaiah talks of the life of

Jesus and the crusifiction, in very short and brief detail.

The suffering in which Jesus took for us lasted all through the night, and then

in the morning the thrusted a sword into His side to see if he was alive. After

the water poored out of His side, you can say that it is officially over. In my

heart it is not completely over, just that of that era. Jesus will always live
