So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!…
What a proclamation Jesus made on the cross before He gave up the ghost at the cross. The Greek word for “It is finished” is “Tetelestai” which means, “To bring to an end.” “To fulfill.” “To complete.” “To accomplish.” “To perform.” “To make payment.” This means everything is now completely paid for, and every litigation against us is over.
In those days, Tetelestai painted the picture of:
(a) A servant who had completed His assigned Task – Jesus completed the task God gave Him to redeem, deliver and save you.
(b) A debt that was owed being fully paid. This was written on a Tax receipt. Jesus fully paid the debt you owed; sin, sickness and Satan.
What Jesus did automatically brings you to the dispensation of comfort – It means it is enough. Your warfare is over. Your iniquity is pardoned. It is done. Concluded! The siege against your career progress is ended now. The disturbing pattern in your family, and that controlling depressive thought from Satan are over. Your life will no longer be characterized by constant struggles and warfare. God will give you rest on all sides.
Jesus said “It is finished,” and this means in your life, sickness is finished, spiritual laziness is finished, failure is finished, joblessness is finished, barrenness is finished, opposition is finished, stagnation is finished, indecision is finished, inability to hold a job or money is finished. Hallelujah!
Therefore, if you are trusting God for anything…the price has already been paid and you entitled to receive your desires.
+ Look at the issues of your life and say: “IT IS FINISHED.” Let every oppression and reproach come to an end.
+ Look at all your desires this year and all you hope to accomplish and say: “IT IS FINISHED because Jesus has paid the price for everything.”
