The Wonders at His Feet

The CCF (The Christian Confession of Faith) states:

A. Jesus Christ will return from Heaven as He promised, the dead will be resurrected, and the whole world will be judged, all at God’s appointed time. [Psa 96:13; Dan 7:9-14; 12:1-2; Mat 16:27; 25:31-46; Mar 4:22; 13:24-27; Joh 5:28-29; Act 1:11; 17:31; 24:15; 1Co 15:23-25; 2Co 5:10; 1Th 4:15-17; 2Th 1:7-10; 2Ti 4:1; Heb 9:27-28; 2Pe 3:10-12; Rev 1:7-8; 20:11-13]

B. All for whom Jesus Christ did not die will live eternally in the pit of Hell and will be eternally tormented for their sins. Souls who are tormented in the next life will never suffer enough to even begin to pay for as much as one sin. Scripture rejects the lie that souls in Hell cease to exist or cease to be tormented, as this is a denial that offending the infinitely holy God is an infinite crime deserving of an infinite punishment. Scripture also rejects the lie of Purgatory as well as the lie that those who perish denying the doctrines of the gospel will finally accept them in heaven. [Deu 32:22,41; Psa 9:17; Pro 27:20; Isa 33:14; Dan 12:2; Mat 3:12; 5:22; 7:21-23; 10:28; 11:22-24; 13:41-42; 25:30,46; Mar 9:42-48; Luk 16:23-24,26; Joh 3:36; 10:11,26; 12:48; Rom 2:5-9; 6:23; Gal 3:10; 2Th 1:5-9; Heb 10:26-27; 2Pe 3:7; Jud 6-7; Rev 14:9-11; 19:2-3; 20:14-15]

C. All for whom Jesus Christ died will live eternally in Heaven in perfect fellowship with God, as He promised them. The final state of the Church will be eternal glory with her King and Husband. He will wipe every tear from her eyes and will entirely remove all indwelling sin from her. She will worship Him in the presence of His visible glory for all eternity. [Psa 49:15; 116:8; Isa 25:8; Dan 12:2; Mat 19:29; 25:34,46; Luk 18:29-30; Joh 3:15-16; 3:36; 4:14; 6: 40,47,54; 10:28; 14:2-3; 17:2-3; Rom 2:7; 6:22-23; 8:30; 1Co 15:53-54; Gal 6:8; Phi 3:20-21; Col 3:4; Tit 1:2; 2:13; 3:7; 1Pe 1:4; 2Pe 3:13; 1Jo 2:25,28; 3:2; Rev 14:1-5; 21:2-4,22-27; 22:1-5]

All for whom Jesus Christ did NOT die will be trampled under His feet. All for whom Jesus Christ DID die will be worshiping at His feet. The feet that will crush His enemies in His holy wrath, are the same feet that were pierced on behalf of those for whom He made propitiation by His blood. These are the wonders at His feet.

“But we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those within the Law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world be under judgment to God. Because by works of Law not one of all flesh will be justified before Him, for through Law [is] full knowledge of sin. But now a righteousness of God has been revealed apart from Law, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith of Jesus Christ toward all and upon all those believing; for there is no difference, for all sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth [as] a propitiation through faith in His blood, as a demonstration of His righteousness through the passing over of the sins that had taken place before, in the forbearance of God, for a demonstration of His righteousness in the present time, for His being just and justifying the [one] that [is] of the faith of Jesus” (Romans 3:19-26).

“And Jehovah God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you [are] cursed above all beasts, and above every animal of the field. You shall go on your belly, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heal” (Genesis 3:14-15).

“Who will lead me into the fortified city? Who will lead me over Edom? O God, have You not cast us off? And, O God, will You not go out with our armies? Give help to us from distress; for the deliverance of man [is] vain. In God we shall do mighty things, for He shall trample ones oppressing us” (Psalm 108:10-13).

“A declaration of Jehovah to my Lord: Sit at My right hand, until I place Your enemies [as] Your footstool. Jehovah shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion [to] rule in the midst of Your enemies. Your people [shall have] willingness in the day of Your might; in the majesties of holiness; from the womb of the dawn, to You [is] the dew of Your youth. Jehovah has sworn and will not repent: You [are] a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. The Lord at Your right hand shatters kings in the day of His anger. He shall judge among the nations; He shall fill with dead bodies; He shall shatter heads over much land. He shall drink out of the torrent on the way; therefore, He shall lift up the head” (Psalm 110:1-7).

“Why [is Your] clothing red, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress? I have trodden the winepress, I alone, and no man of the peoples [was] with Me. And I will tread them in My anger, and trample them in My fury; and their juice shall be spattered on My garments; and I will pollute all My clothes. For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come. And I looked, and no one [was] helping. And I wondered that no one [was] upholding. Then My own arm saved for Me, and My fury upheld Me. And I tread down peoples in My anger, and made them drunk in My fury. And I poured their juice to the earth. I will mention the mercies of Jehovah, the praises of Jehovah, according to all that Jehovah has benefited us, and the great good to the house of Israel, [by] which He benefited them according to His mercies, and according to the multitude of His loving-kindness” (Isaiah 63:2-7).

“For, behold, the day is coming, burning like a fire pot; and all the proud and every doer of wickedness shall be chaff. And the coming day will set them ablaze, says Jehovah of Hosts, which will not leave root or branches to them. But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall rise up, and healing will be on His wings. And you shall go out and frisk like calves of the stall. And you shall tread under the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day which I [am] preparing, says Jehovah of Hosts. Remember the Law of My servant Moses which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, the statutes and judgments. Behold, I [am] sending you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Jehovah. And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the sons, and the heart of the sons to their fathers, that I not come and strike the earth [with] utter destruction” (Malachi 4:1-6).

“And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen” (Romans 16:20).

“And another angel went forth out of the temple, crying in a great voice to the [One] sitting on the cloud, Send Your sickle and reap, because Your hour to reap came, because the harvest of the earth was dried. And the [One] sitting on the cloud thrust His sickle onto the earth, and the earth was reaped. And another angel went forth out of the temple in Heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel went forth from the altar having authority over the fire. And he spoke with a great cry to the one having the sharp sickle, saying, Send your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, because its grapes are ripened. And the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw into the winepress of the great anger of God. And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood went out of the winepress as far as the bridles of the horses, from a thousand six hundred stadia” (Revelation 14:15-20).

“And I saw Heaven being opened. And, behold! A white horse, and He sitting on it having been called Faithful and True. And He judges and wars in righteousness. And His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on His head many diadems, having a name that had been written, which no one knows except Himself; and having been clothed in a garment which had been dipped in blood. And His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in Heaven followed Him on white horses, being dressed in fine linen, white and pure. And out of His mouth goes forth a sharp sword, that with it He might smite the nations. And He will shepherd them with an iron rod. And He treads the winepress of the wine of the anger and of the wrath of God Almighty. And He has on [His] garment and on His thigh a name having been written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw one angel standing in the sun. And he cried with a great voice, saying to all the birds flying in mid-heaven, Come and gather together to the supper of the great God, that you may eat the flesh of kings, and [the] flesh of chiliarchs, and [the] flesh of strong ones, and [the] flesh of horses, and of the ones sitting on them, and [the] flesh of all, both freemen and slaves, even of the small and great. And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth, and their armies being assembled to make war with the [One] sitting on the horse, and with His army. And the beast was seized, and with this one the false prophet doing signs before it, by which he led astray those having received the mark of the beast, and those worshiping its image. The two were thrown alive into the Lake of Fire burning with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword of the [One] sitting on the horse, the [sword] having gone forth from His mouth. And all the birds were filled from their flesh” (Revelation 19:11-21).

“And indeed every priest stands day by day ministering, and often offering the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But He, offering but one sacrifice for sins, sat down in perpetuity [at the] right [hand] of God, from then on expecting until His enemies are placed [as] a footstool of His feet. For by one offering He has perfected in perpetuity the ones being sanctified” (Hebrews 10:11-14).

“But the Pharisees having been gathered, Jesus questioned them, saying, What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is He? They say to Him, David’s. He said to them, Then how does David in Spirit call Him Lord, saying, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit off My right until I should put Your hostile [ones] as a footstool for Your feet? Then if David calls Him Lord, how is He his son? And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day to question Him any more” (Matthew 22:41-46).

“And a certain one of the Pharisees asked Him that He eat with him. And going into the Pharisee’s house, He reclined. And, behold, a woman who was a sinner in the city, knowing that He reclined in the Pharisee’s house, taking an alabaster vial of ointment, and standing at His feet, weeping behind [Him], she began to wash His feet with tears. And she was wiping with the hairs of her head. And [she] ardently kissed His feet and was anointing [them] with the ointment. But seeing, the Pharisee who invited Him spoke within himself, saying, This one, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what the woman who touches him [is]; for she is a sinner. And answering, Jesus said to the man, Simon, I have a thing to say to you. And he said, Teacher, speak. There were two debtors to a certain creditor: the one owed five hundred denarii and [the] other fifty. But they not having [a thing] to pay, he freely forgave both. Then which of them do [you] say will love him most? And answering, Simon said, I suppose [the one] to whom he freely forgave the most. And He said to him, You have judged rightly. And turning to the woman, He said to Simon, Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give water for My feet, but she washed My feet with tears and wiped off with the hairs of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but she from [when] I entered did not stop fervently kissing My feet. You did not anoint My head with oil, but she anointed My feet with ointment. For this reason I say to you, her many sins are remitted, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, he loves little. And He said to her, Your sins are forgiven. And those reclining with [Him] began to say within themselves, Who is this who even forgives sins? But He said to the woman, Your faith has saved you. Go in peace” (Luke 7:36-50).
