When I Survey The Wondrous Cross

It is Finished. He Lives!:
Now, more than ever, I am convinced that Christ was guaranteed to win, even on the cross. Every angel strained at his heavenly leash to redeem Christ from the cross and slay every perpetrator in a flash of light with eternal swords. Amazed, they watched as He silently refused to cry for deliverance, instead praying for their forgiveness. This was a mystery they could not understand, a level of thinking in the wisdom of God to which they were not privy.
There was a whole crowd in heaven, four thousand years worth of faithful saints, in the vestibule of heaven called Paradise, who awaited the results of the Cross and the Lamb slain for their sins. You see, they had accumulated there on credit, allowed by the Father, on the understanding that if Christ remained the sinless One and went to the cross to die for their sins, they would be granted an entrance fully and freely.
 Instead of the soldiers or Pilate saying the job was done, strangely enough, Christ said the words, “it is finished.” My, what hidden things were happening! Between the Savior and the Father a transaction was ratified, the ransom money paid in full for every sinner who with dirty feet walk upon God’s earth, breathe God’s air, and live in body borrowed from their Creator. "It is finished” meant a bloody battle was fought and God had won, executing a plan flawlessly designed from “before the foundation of the world.”  When Christ died he had completed his part.

On Sunday Morning the Father did His…He raised His Son from the grave. When Christ awakened, He shed his garments of death and laid them aside, then spoke to the stone sitting ever so heavily in its socket. With a concussion it exploded and fell to the side. Out marched our Redeemer to lead and charge us with the great Commission. We are “more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Never doubt, even in the darkest of hours, that God is in control, even of your life, and will never let you go.

NEW ROOF FOR CHURCH
Thank God for the miracle of getting the roof completely replaced on the church for a little more than the insurance repair settlement. Premium Roofing torn off the old roof and had a new one on in one day.
