This is a blessed word in Scripture language in application to the Lord Jesus Christ. The prophet Daniel, when proclaiming to the church the time of the Messiah's coming, added this also, as the distinguishing feature of his mission. He was to be anointed as the Most Holy, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sin. (Daniel 9:24) And Zechariah no less, while describing him as the great Zerubbabel declared, that the same hands which laid the foundation of the spiritual temple should also finish it. (Zechariah 4:9) And the Lord Jesus himself, speaking in his mediatorial character as the Sent and Servant of JEHOVAH, in the close of his ministry, lifted his eyes to heaven, and said, "Father, I have glorified thee on the earth; I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do." (John 17:4) And in confirmation of the same, as the last act on the cross, he bowed his sacred head, and said, "It is finished!" (John 19:30) Think reader, what a blessed consideration this is to the mind of a poor self. condemned sinner, conscious that he can do nothing but sin; and cannot put forth a single act of his own to obtain salvation. Oh! how truly refreshing to the soul thus to behold Christ as the lawfulfiller, the sum and substance of all the types and sacrifices, and JEHOVAH'S salvation, to the ends of the earth. Jesus! I would say, add one blessing more to thy finished salvation; and "work in me both to will and to do of thy good pleasure."
