John 19:30, "It is finished, and HE bowed HIS head..." The Greek translation of "It is finished" comes from the Greek word "tetelestai" which was an accounting term that meant "Paid in Full". This statement by JESUS is only recorded in the Book of JOHN. Perhaps this is because John was the only Disciple recorded being at the Crucifixion. "It is finished", ALL of the Old Testament prophecies of the coming Messiah are fulfilled; man is reconciled to GOD and (now pay attention) "we are complete in GOD and GOD in us". 1 John 4:13, "We know we dwell in HIM and HE in us..." John 1:9, "...the light that is in every man..." 2 Corinthians 6:16, "I will dwell in them and walk among them..." During these 44 days we have had time to contemplate, reflect, explore, discover and receive "THE VOICE". Even if we had just one "awareness" in the depths of love, forgiveness, not doubting for a moment, and when trouble and fear came we KNEW we were confident. Maybe we had just a"Glimpse of Eternity" where for a split second we saw everything clearly and without worldly distortion and maybe we were able to forgive ourselves. Separation, condemnation, fear and guilt are man made prisons of the mind. They are not love; GOD is love! HE did it all; "IT IS FINISHED". Oh, and "THE VOICE"? That is GOD in you. AMEN!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
