Good Friday Message 2024 – IT IS FINISHED

Dear Lovely Reader,

Hallelujah IT IS FINISHED. Aren’t we glad IT IS FINISHED. ‘IT IS FINISHED’ was one of Jesus’ last words before he died on the cross for mankind.

We’ve all read about the event and know what happens. Yet every time you visit to read the event or any event in the Bible, you can see something new.

From the account of John, chapter 19 – we read of the humiliation and betrayal of Jesus at the hands of the romans, soldiers and His own people – the Jews.

I think of all those people in the crowd shouting ‘crucify Him’ yet deep down in their hearts they knew Jesus was innocent. Some of them shouting may have even seen His miracles. Even the governor, Pontius Pilate found no charge with Jesus and only gave in to the demand of the Jews.

In the midst of all this, Jesus knew He had to die. This was prophesied and had to come to pass. This was God’s plan. God’s plan of ‘so loving the world’ that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). ❤️

In verse 28, it says

“After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” – John 19:28

Jesus’ 30 years of life and 3 years of ministry all led to this moment. This moment where He accomplished the Father’s will. Jesus successfully completed the plan for salvation! This moment meant if we believe in Him: sin, curses, sickness, death, grave, hell have no power over us.

No charge can be put against us in Christ Jesus – since He took every justified charge for each human being on Himself.

Jesus paid it all in full through the shedding of His blood, the wounding, bruising, marking of stripes on His body. This was the ultimate punishment for the priceless gift of true peace. Jesus is the only way to true peace as through confession of faith in Him we make peace with God.

For the joy of knowing that there was a possibility that one day you and I could accept Jesus, He endured the cross. ✝️

I hope this message serves as a reminder of the deep love and merciful consideration of God.

There is no need to be bound to difficulties, consequences of mistakes, shame, pain or curses – Jesus said ‘It is finished’.

We overcome by His blood and the bruising of His body.

Believe and watch Him set you free from it all as you accept Him today –

SALVATION PRAYER 🙏

Lord Jesus, for too long I’ve kept you out of my life. I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. No longer will I close the door when I hear you knocking. By faith I gratefully receive your gift of salvation. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Saviour. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Saviour. Amen
