Scripture: Hebrews 10:12,13
Hebrews 10:12,13 gives us a picture of precisely what we are waiting for right now, “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.” Jesus apparently cannot come back until His enemies are made His footstool. Now that presents a slight conflict with how we have been taught by rapture theology. Rapture theology, as I understand it, has Jesus coming back and taking believers out before that happens. Is Jesus waiting on the church to demand justice? Is He waiting on us to demand salvation? If Jesus has to sit until His enemies are made His footstool, it seems that we may be a little bit remiss in demanding extraction right now. We should be demanding covenant justice at every juncture!
