Until I Make Thy Foes Thy Footstool


This article demonstrates further continuation of consistency. From Jesus' instructions at Olivet, his declaration to the Jews, At his ascension, two men dressed in white made a statement of Jesus' second coming, up to Peter's first sermon at Pentecost, there isn't a hint of a two-phased coming. Not one.

 

This study begins at Peter's first sermon at Pentecost:

 

Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

 

Acts 22-24

 

For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 

Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 

Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 

Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 

Acts 2:25-28

I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

 Psalms 16-8-11

 

Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell neither his flesh did see corruption (Psalm 16:10,Acts 2:27), This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

 

Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.  

 Acts 2:29-33

For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,  

Until I make thy foes thy footstool.

Acts 2:34-35

 

The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

 Psalm 110:1

 

In Peter's sermon He referenced David who foretold the coming of Christ: "he (God) raise up Christ to sit on his throne." And of the resurrection of Christ: "...his soul was not left in hell neither his flesh did see corruption."  And his accretion to where He is exalted by the right hand of God.  And he also referenced David in Psalms 110:1: "The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy foes thy footstool."

 

This is another piece of the rapture question puzzle. Jesus is seated until God makes His enemies his footstool. He is not unseated before then. The question lies: When does God makes Jesus' enemies His footstool? Is it before the tribulation or after the tribulation? His enemies are not made His footstool until after the tribulation, and not Before!

 

At His trial before the Jews Jesus  said: "Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.[1]" and "...ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.[2] Again, there is no hint of a coming before He comes in the clouds of Heaven. Consistency throughout Scripture.

 

In Hebrews, Paul Writes: 

But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;  From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool

Hebrews 10:12-13

 

Again, Paul continues with the consistency of scripture with no hint of a pre-trib rapture!
