“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
“It is finished.” This is the cry of Jesus from the cross, but a good friend recently misquoted it as, “All is finished.”
That really hit me with the fact that “It” included “All.” It was a very short trip from there to begin to explore what that “All” might include. It certainly included “all” that had gone before, not only the first man Adam, but all that is flesh, and blood, and old creation and law – “All.”
Everything we ever were in the flesh was included in His death. This is what makes it possible for everything we were ever meant to be to rise with Him in His resurrection. We are a new creation. Old things have passed away. Behold all things have become new.
