It Is Finished
This is a place on the side of the highway that makes storage sheds and Adirondack chairs. And they have this big giant chair out front as an advertisement, along with other chairs and sheds. We went there with our granddaughter awhile back. You can see her looking up at Phil as if to say, "What are my crazy grandparents doing now, making us sit in this giant chair and pose?" But she was very happy to try out this little one just her size! The bible tells us that Jesus sits in heaven. And this is simply because he is done. In the old testament, the priests work was never done, it was a never ending cycle. Jesus took care of that by being our once and for all sacrifice, nothing else needed. And when he was done, he sat. As he said "It is finished".
"That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything in the church..."
