“Fait accompli” is a French expression meaning, an accomplished fact; a thing already done.
The Christian Easter is a celebration of a “fait accompli” – God’s plan for salvation and redemption through faith in the sacrificial death and resurrection of God’s son, Jesus Christ.
God had this plan for salvation through faith in Jesus, from the very beginning.
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 He was in the beginning with God.
2Th 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brothers beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth,
1Jn 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of Life,
1Jn 2:14 I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
When Jesus, in obedience to God, died on the cross for us, the war against the devil, sin and death was won.
Joh 19:28 After this, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, Jesus said, I thirst.
Joh 19:29 Then a vessel full of vinegar was set. And they filled a sponge with sour wine and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His mouth.
Joh 19:30 Then when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, It is finished! And He bowed His head and gave up the spirit.
Jesus, knowing that He had accomplished God’s will and plan for salvation, said, “It is finished!” – fait accompli!
The enemy will not acknowledge that he has lost the war so he continues to fight a losing battle. The devil fights a battle whose outcome has already been decided – it is a “fait accompli”.
I find it very interesting to note that the example given in Dictionary.com for the term “fait accompli” is as follows:
“The enemy’s defeat was a fait accompli long before the formal surrender.”
Even the dictionary acknowledges the truth that our enemy will not!
I pray that you also will acknowledge God’s masterful “fait accompli”.
Wishing you all a blessed Easter.
Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
Joh 17:4 I have glorified You upon the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.
Joh 17:5 And now Father, glorify Me with Yourself with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
