The Godhead Speaks Of Victory of the Messiah

No single Scripture brings out the determinate council of the Godhead to the full and complete victory of the Messiah, Christ Jesus. This Scripture gives unmistakable names, which define the incarnate Word, who was with God, was God, and became man. This verse attests who Christ is—none other than the divine-human Savior. What is your guess to which verse it is?

The Lord (Lord of the universe-Yahweh) said to my Lord (‘Adonai, the Messiah), “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” Psalm 110:1.

The word said (Strong’s #5002) is a unique word, which only refers to inspired prophetic utterances. Another specific word is footstool which is graphically given to us in Joshua 10:24,25.

On the day of Pentecost Peter quoted David’s prophecy (Acts 2:34,35) Most importantly Peter links the promise of ultimate victory of this prophecy with the coming of the Holy Spirit.

The fullest understanding of this Scripture cannot be limited to the human, political, or institutional adversaries faced. A broader understanding of our spiritual adversaries is found in Ephesians 6:12. Peter is used to unlock the importance of David’s declaration of victory as he proclaims another part of its fulfillment in Acts 2:33-35.

This tells us our Lord, Savior and Messiah’s victory extends to the New Testament Church, in which we are taught that each believer shares in the authority of what Jesus the Messiah has done in disarming all adversaries.

And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church. Ephesians 1:22. Are you stepping on necks today?

    So interesting that you would post this today. I was just looking for a good article on the Trinity yesterday and this post makes a huge statement: “Father, Son, and Spirit are equal is essence yet distinct in function.” I think this is a very good description of the God of the Bible.
