1. Genesis - It Is Good:
The journey begins in Genesis, where the account of creation unfolds. "And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good" (Genesis 1:31a). A perfect world, untainted by sin, reflects the Creator's divine artistry. However, the harmony is disrupted as human disobedience introduces sin, forever altering the course of history.
2. John - It Is Finished:
Fast forward to the Gospel of John, the pivotal point of the Bible. Here, we witness the climax of God's redemptive plan. Hanging on the cross, Jesus utters the words, "'It is finished,' and He bowed His head and gave up His spirit" (John 19:30). The sacrificial act of Christ becomes the ultimate payment for sin, bridging the gap between humanity and God.
3. Revelation - It Is Done:
In Revelation, John's vision reveals the culmination of God's promises. "And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end'" (Revelation 21:6). The new Heaven and Earth signify the fulfillment of God's redemptive plan—a divine reset where all things are made new.
IT IS GOOD. IT IS FINISHED. IT IS DONE!
From Genesis to Revelation, these 3 statements echo God's love letter to humanity. They invite us to come, partake in the water of life without price (Revelation 22:17). Despite the brokenness introduced in Genesis, the crucible of John's Gospel, and the apocalyptic visions of Revelation, God's redemptive love remains constant.
Let's embark on a journey through these pivotal books of the Bible—Genesis, the Gospel of John, and Revelation. Genesis and Revelation serve as bookends, encapsulating the grand narrative, while the Gospel of John stands as the pivotal point—the linchpin of God's redeeming plan and the heartbeat of human history.
