John 19:30! – IT IS FINISHED…

By Creflo Dollar

Under the Law, if you were faithful to God, He was faithful to you. But under grace, you don’t get to determine God’s faithfulness by your faithfulness. Second Timothy 2:13 (AMP) says If we are faithless [do not believe and are untrue to Him], He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself.” Even when you don’t do your part, God says, “I’m going to do my part.” Now that, my friends, is good news! It is the grace of Christ, which is the power of God that brings about salvation, deliverance, healing, soundness, prosperity, and so on. Grace is the Good News about how Jesus has made everything that you will ever need on this planet ready for your life.

Now, in order to lay hold of everything that grace has provided for you, you have to learn how to receive everything that Jesus achieved. Your part under the new covenant of grace is to receive it! You already have the blessing; it just requires a transfer! You need to transfer what Jesus has already deposited in you out of the invisible realm into the natural realm.

You don’t receive simply because you say something. That’s just a part of receiving. How many of you have confessed the Word hundreds of times and never got the manifestation?  No, you receive by believing something! And belief is always going to be tested when it is confronted. What you say, and what you do when the contradiction shows up to confront you, is going to let you know if you really believe it.

This is where your righteousness stance comes under attack.  The enemy will attempt to stop you from making the transfer and receiving what Jesus has already done, by questioning your position of righteousness—your right-standing with God.  But remember this, you were declared righteous by faith in Christ’s finished works for you, not by your own works or self-effort. Your righteousness comes from grace. Grace works through righteousness. Grace rules through righteousness! Romans 5:21 (NLT) declares “So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

“Okay, Brother Dollar, I believe I’m the righteousness of God by faith in Christ Jesus and that everything I need is already a finished work. Now what?” Receive it! Receive it in prayer! Receive it by stepping out on it in faith! Receive it in the actions you take under the direction and leadership of the Holy Spirit. You have to believe it, receive it, and say it, even when it’s hard to say! This is the life of faith! It’s already a finished work. Under grace, it is never something you did; it is always something He has already done!

As you begin to submit to and access God’s grace by faith, you will begin to withdraw what you need from the invisible realm over into this natural realm. Make this confession of faith out loud, right now: “I am the righteousness of God, and I live by faith! I’m a receiver of what Jesus has achieved. Everything in my life that I will ever need Jesus has provided. It’s all finished. Therefore, I acknowledge the reality, and the legitimacy, of all the finished works of Jesus. With my faith, I make transfers from the realm of the unseen into this natural, physical realm, where I can touch it and say, there it is! I receive all the finished works of Jesus. Amen!”
