“It Is Finished”

“It Is Finished!”
(John 19:30)

Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. There is something very striking in this loud voice of Jesus. Not like one exhausted; not as one dispirited; but as a conqueror in the field of battle, retreating with His spoils. Jesus cried aloud, that all on earth, and all in heaven, and all in hell, might hear, “It is finished!” What is finished? Redemption-work is finished. And from that moment the empire of sin, death, hell, and the grave were vanquished…and that song was sung in heaven… “Thou was slain, and hast redeemed us to God by the blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” (Revelation 5:9)
