TETELESTAI - It is finished
John 19:30 "So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit."
On this Friday 2000 years ago, Creation took the breath of the One who breathed it into being.
He was flogged 39 times, one single whip away from death.
The soldiers thought they were forcing Him to carry His own cross,
But little did they know he was willingly carrying the sins of the world.
Our Creator nailed to a tree He created.
Hanging next to a sinner telling Him to save himself and him,
not knowing that if Jesus saved himself, the sinners only true hope for salvation would be lost.
Our Savior hanging on that bloody cross,
flogged to the bone,
and crowned with thorns,
pulled himself up by the rusty nails through His wrists.
To breathe His final breath.
The Son of God who breathed all creation into existence,
even the tree He hung on and the hill he died on,
willingly breathed His last.
And with His last breathe came one final word,
It’s Friday, but Sunday is coming.
