"...It is finished!..." - John 19 V30

"O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?" - 1 Corinthians15 V55

When Jesus Christ our Lord cried on the cross "It is finished", it was indeed all over and Christ won the victory over death and our souls now permanently belong to Christ. There would have been great rejoicing in heaven over this victory. On one side God had to turn His face away from His Son for a short period and let Him take the brunt of God's wrath but on the other side all who believe in the Son are redeemed from the shackles of sin and death. Let us rejoice and give thanks to God who won this victory for us in Christ!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
