Until I Make Thy Foes
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
Whom God hath raised up,
having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should
be holden of it.
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
Because thou wilt not
leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see
Thou hast made known
to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy
I have set
the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall
not be moved.
my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in
wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to
shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy
right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
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.
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.
LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine
enemies thy footstool.
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
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."
and "...ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of
power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
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.
Again, Paul continues with the consistency
of scripture with no hint of a pre-trib rapture!
