It is finished!
It is completed!
It is done!
Shalom Peace is the finished work of Jesus. Jesus’ first words to the disciples following HIS death are Shalom, “Peace be with you.”
Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. John 20:19-20
Jesus shows the disciples HIS wounds as evidence of the finished work on the cross. Jesus came to bring Peace. He took all the suffering and punishment on the cross to bring us Shalom Peace.
Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
According to Strong’s Concordance 7965, Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full. In modern Hebrew the obviously related word Shelem means to pay for, and Shulam means to be fully paid.
The Heavenly Court has ruled based upon the evidence. Jesus paid for All sin, condemnation, judgment, death, fear, worry, sickness, disease and the curse on the cross by the shedding of Jesus’ Blood. The Shalom Peace is complete; it is finished. Jesus SUFFERED for all mankind’s sin. HE was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.The KING in the HEAVENLY COURT RULES “Not Guilty.”
The hands and side of Jesus are the evidence displayed to the disciples of Jesus suffering for the Divine exchange of man’s sin, death and curse for HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. You have been made whole, complete, righteous, restored, and healthy. Jesus said to the disciples and is saying to you, “Shalom.”
Your striving and anxiety is over. You can rest that it is finished. It is done, finished and complete. You can rest. Your effort cannot bring you Shalom Peace.
