I would like to add my comments on the last words `It is finished ‘(John19:30). Among the seven words He spoken, this is the most significant one and this has got a wider, deeper,unfathomable meaning in it. 
Finished work of the Cross elevates to you to a new dimension. There is remedy when you are in Christ. Knowledge of revelation is essential when you face a problem. It is your duty to demonstrate the revelation. But those who wait on the LORD. Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint (Isiah40:31) You are an eagle. Faith without works is dead. Revelation without demonstration is dead. We are slaves under flesh. When you are spirit dominated, you will dominate in flesh. Let us see how we were before cross and how we were after cross
You have already risen in Christ. Act on the Cross has to be demonstrated. Our conscious is not upgrading to the level of being in Christ. All have been sinned fallen short of Glory. Believe what Christ has done on the Cross. He demonstrated faith by dying on the Cross. You are reconciled back to God. You and God as one by faith. Gal3:5-9 says 5 Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?— 6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. 7 Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
Everything is the finished work of the Cross. Offence (evil doing)/doubting) is the biggest form of stoppage of blessing. John3:16-17 says 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Demonstration by right believing God is essential. Invisible righteousness of Christ has to be revealed. At the cross Jesus did not just take way your sins. But He also gave you His righteousness but He gave also a divine exchange took place; your sins for His righteousness.
Everything is predestined. All authority has been given to you. Just believe in the finished work of the Cross. Do not get felony and demonstrate faith. You are the tree of life: an invisible thing. God came down to demonstrate His righteousness. People in Old Testament did not believe invisibility: A Gospel without practical demonstration. Christ proved himself on the cross, the practical demonstration: unconditional love. Love creates and hate destroys
