"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 saved,
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. The
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 ...
