Scripture: Acts 2:29-36
Acts 2:29-36 says, “Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption. This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses. Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear. For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”’ Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Jesus has been made both koo-ree-os, Judge of all the earth, and kris-tos, Savior of all the earth. Now as the Judge, He is committed to make our enemies our footstool. And what does that mean for us? That specifically refers to the place where judgment is meted out as a King. It is the Kingly ministry that is highlighted here by the Scripture that is quoted. Are we comfortable in the Kingly ministry? Are we comfortable with the Judicial declarations that have to come? What is the condition of our feet? Is the Judicial Throne of God established at our feet? Do we know assuredly and are we ready to walk in this place? Do we have the goal of seeing the Judgment Seat of Christ established at our feet? If not, it is time to agree with the King!
