Nec Spe, Nec Metu

Having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Colossians 2:15 ( KJV)

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

John 19:30 (KJV)

 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

John 19:31 (KJV)

 

“It is finished was His divine, Holy, anguished cry.”

A cry so great it tore the veil in two. A bloody agony

that broke His heart.  A heart so drenched with love

that He died for all of humanity. An anguished love

so encompassing and true that it brings beauty and

Christ’s redeeming transformational righteousness

to each and every soul that will but repent and believe.

A gift so incalculable and free that when redeemed we

are given Christ-given righteousness, robes of salvation,

new creature hearts, souls, minds, and lives, spiritual wealth.

This is a prophetic and Holy love that has been gloriously foretold.

A salvation that indeed can or will never be diminished or

taken away when received.  A Cross so brutal, devastating,

yet beautifying that it removes the sins of the world and

creates a white as snow royal path to salvation, a new eternal

destination through Jesus Christ, our Savior, now our dearest

friend and Lord. A cross so majestically vicious and victorious

that it turns the wrath of God away from those who truly believe.

Why you might say? Indeed this is the most important question

of our lives that needs to be answered with the Bible’s inerrant truth.

And it is this.  Infinite love’s obedience broke the head of the dragon

renting the veil in two while defeating all demonic foes forever and

forevermore. Our sins have blocked us from His Holy dwelling place.

But because of His Cross, His blood,  His blessed, perfect sacrifice, this

brings us into his fold. And gives us all a way to run into His presence

at any time or any where.For his victorious, joy-filled, miraculous loving

presence is within each and every repentant heart. Oh love, divine whose

wounds can heal and transform each and every soul, people or nation.

Eternal God who is perfectly human and perfectly divine what love, what

triumph, what agony, what perfect, glorious grace, what mercy, what obedience,

what exquisite atoning sacrifice that you would become the Holy lamb, God’s

Holy, triumphant, atoning sacrifice and answer each and every sinner’s

penitent prayerful plea with, “It is finished.” This, this, this is what is royally

written on each and every redeemed heart, It is finished, Heaven’s gold!
