Bill And Gloria Gaither – It Is Finished lyrics

There's a line that is drawn through the ages
On that line stands an old rugged cross
On that cross, a battle is raging
To gain a man's soul or it's loss
On one side, march the forces of evil
All the demons, all the devils of hell
On the other, the angels of glory
And they meet on Golgotha's hill
The earth shakes with the force of the conflict
And the sun refuses to shine
For there hangs God's son, in the balance
And then through the darkness he cries

It is finished, the battle is over
It is finished, there'll be no more war
It is finished, the end of the conflict
It is finished and Jesus is Lord

Yet in my heart, the battle was still raging
Not all prisoners of war had come home
These were battlefields of my own making
I didn't know that the war had been won
Oh, but then I heard the king of the ages
Had fought all the battles for me
And that victory was mine for the claiming
And now praise his name, I am free.

    I have been battling for 10 months now to sell my house. Three people have signed purchase agreements. Two fell through. And the last one has been in closing for 2 months. This morning I woke up with this song that I had not heard in a long time. It is finished. The battle is over and jesus is lord! Although final closing papers are not signed, I know that victory is mine for the claiming. With a greatfull heart I praise his wonderful name and I am free from this battle. The war has been won. Thank you jesus!

    I have been also battling, but with sickness. I have had unexplained pain in my shoulders and back. Over this past year had tests, seen doctors, etc. to no avail. No one can find why I have been in pain for so long. Now I have been going to Physical Therapy twice a week for the last few months, and my therapy has helped me more than any other doctor find problems with my neck muscles and my spine, and has helped me get stronger. It has been the catalyst that God has used to wake up my spirit. Because every time I go, my Physical Therapist has to ask for me to say what my pain level is at, and every time I have had to answer the Holy Spirit sends a check to my spirit with "why are you confessing sickness when you are believing for healing?" Yesterday I received prayer to stand on Romans 8:11 that the same power that raised up Jesus from the dead is the same power I have inside of me that shall "quicken my mortal body". I then took holy communion and it was like "ZAP"! I felt better. It was like the pressure was off my neck, off my back, off my spirit. And the Holy Spirit told me to stop "talking sickness, and instead speak life, speak healing. This morning as I was getting ready to go to Physical Therapy, the Holy Spirit was singing this song, "It is finished! The battle is over! It is finished! All fear is gone! It is finished! There will be no more war! And I know I will confess to my therapist that I am healed, I have no pain level to speak of, and he can tell my doctor it is finished!
