"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." John 16:33

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. John 19:30
All of Apostles Paulís messages centered in the cross where Jesus Christ accomplished all things for us.  As a result "we have redemption through His blood" (Eph. 1:7), we are justified by His blood" (Rom. 5:9), "reconciled to God by the death of His Son" (Rom. 5:10), "made nigh by the blood of Christ" (Eph. 2:13 and "made the righteousness of God in Him" because "God hath made Him to be sin for us" (2 Cor. 5:21).  The covenant of the law was abolished by the cross (Col. 2:14), the curse of the law was removed by the cross (Gal. 3:13), the "middle wall of partition" was broken down by the cross (Eph. 2:14-15) and believing Jews and Gentiles are reconciled to God in one body by the cross (Eph. 2:16). And by His stripes there we are healed (1 Peter 2:24). Godís word is unchanging:

He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;  He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.  Surely He has borne our griefs  And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions,  He was bruised for our iniquities;  The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,  And by His stripes we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way;  And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:3-6

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,  who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,  but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,  and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:5-11

Jesus Christ, Godís Son and His righteous Servant, on the cross of Calvary  justified many by bearing their iniquities there.  He poured out His soul unto death,  He was numbered with the transgressors,  He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. He was stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;  the chastisement for our peace was upon Him,  and by His stripes we are healed. Therefore God divided Him a portion with the great, and Jesus  divide the spoil with the strong. God, has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.  

In Christ we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace  which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,  having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth-in Him. In Christ we trusted, after we heard the word of truth, the gospel of our salvation; in whom also, having believed, we were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:3-15). In Christ Has God has chosen us to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him. In Christ we are Abraham's seed, children of faith and heirs according to the promise:

For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end,  that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.  For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself,  saying, "Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you." And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. Hebrews 6:10-15
