“Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. And a mighty shout came from the throne of the Temple in heaven, saying, ‘It is finished!’”
“It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega – the Beginning and the End.
To all who are thirsty I will give the springs of the water of life without charge!”
Long after I die, Jesus will again remind me “It is finished!” and invite me to drink for eternity from “the springs of the water of life without charge.”
When I was a little boy waking up in the middle of the night and afraid of the dark, I would crawl into my parent’s bed. There was no place safer than between Mom and Dad. I could sleep with the absolute assurance that they would protect me from any possibility of harm.
Today I am at rest between the “the Alpha and the Omega – the Beginning and the End”. There is no safer place to be. I will never need to suffer the wrath of God for my past sins. Jesus took care of that two millenniums ago.
For me, it was finished before it began.
