TETELESTAI! | Easter 2024

“HE IS RISEN”… He is alive!

41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it 42 and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes.Luke 19:41-42 NIV

His son was sent for this very moment to die on the cross. So that you and I can hear how much HE LOVES US!!

28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, to fulfill the Scripture, *said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30 Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.John 19:28-30 NASB1995

Tetelestai! It Is Finished!

Tetelestai comes from the verb teleo, which means “to bring to an end, to complete, to accomplish.”

It represents our sin and consequences.

Tetelestai! IT IS FINISHED!

Is becomes an action word and confirmation that something has already happened.

Tetelestai! IT IS FINISHED!

Finished doesn’t only represent something recent but it carries even further. It represents our past present and future.

Tetelestai! IT IS FINISHED!

You see it has to finish… so that it can all BEGIN!

It gave us access to the holies of holies.

We no longer need to go to man or through man to receive atonement for our sins or permission.

We have access to go to the Father and present ourselves as a willing sacrifice.

I was able to leave you with my comforter \ The Holy Spirit.

Tetelestai! It Is Finished!

13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation: 16 for by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or rulers, or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 He is also the head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. 19 For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, whether things on earth or things in [j]heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. 21 And although you were previously alienated and hostile in attitude, engaged in evil deeds, 22 yet He has now reconciled you in His body of flesh through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach— 23 if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister.  ~ Colossians 1:13-23 NASB

39 And He came out and proceeded as was His custom to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him. 40 When He arrived at the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” 41 And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, 42 saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” 43 Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.Luke 22:39-44 NASB1995

Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” 10 And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground11 So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand12 When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on the earth.” 13 And Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is greater than I can bear! ~ Genesis 4:9-13 NKJV

Tetelestai! It Is Finished!

11 But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; 12 and she *saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. 13 And they *said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She *said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.” 14 When she had said this, she turned around and *saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus *said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing Him to be the gardener, she *said to Him, “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.” ~ John 20:11-15 NASB1995

Tetelestai! It Is Finished! ~ the IT IS FINISHED work is always at work…

Tetelestai! It Is Finished!
