Gen. 3:15 . . . And I [G.T.F.] will put enmity between you
[Satan] and the woman, and between your seed and her

Fire], and you shall bruise Him [J.C.]; on the heel [the cross]."

sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of

“The metaphor of a footstool is most likely taken from the custom of the ancient Near East in which a victorious king placed his foot
on the necks of his conquered foes. It indicates the complete subjugation of those who have been defeated to those who have
overcome them.” Vol. 10: Detroit Baptist Seminary Journal. 2005 (107).
2 Samuel 22:33-39 . . ."God is my strong fortress; And He
sets the blameless in His way. 34 "He makes my feet like
hinds' feet, And sets me on my high places. 35 "He trains my
hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
36 "You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And
Your help makes me great. 37 "You enlarge my steps under
me, And my feet have not slipped. 38 "I pursued my enemies

consumed. 39 "And I have devoured them and shattered
them, so that they did not rise; And they fell under my feet.
Psalm 44:5 . . .Through You we will push back our

Psalm 91:10-13 . . . No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague
come near your tent. 11 For He will give His angels charge
concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. 12 They will
bear you up in their hands, That you do not strike your foot
against a stone. 13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
This verse refers to the help that the Church receives from the angelic realm by
protecting us, even when we tread upon the seeds of the serpent. This verse
was the one that Satan distorted when he tempted our Lord (Matt. 4:6 he added the words “lest at
Psalm 91:14-16 . . . Because he has loved Me, therefore I will
deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has
known My name. 15) "He will call upon Me, and I will answer
him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor
him. 16) "With a long life I will satisfy him And let him see My
In these verses we see that God’s deliverance is conditional. When we know
Him, love Him, and call on Him, He blesses us and empowers us.

Isaiah 63:1-3 Who is this who comes from Edom, With
garments of glowing colors from Bozrah, This One who is
majestic in His apparel, Marching in the greatness of His
strength? "It is I who speak in righteousness, mighty to
save." 2) Why is Your apparel red, And Your garments like
the one who treads in the wine press? 3) "I have trodden the
wine trough alone, And from the peoples there was no man
with Me. I also trod them in My anger And trampled them in
My wrath; And their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments,
And I stained all My raiment.
It won’t be grapes that our Lord will be trodding; it will be unbelievers who will be the
seed of the serpent, smashed like grapes in a winepress.
1 Corinthians 15:25-27 . . . For He must reign [in the

[JC's] feet. 26) The last enemy that will be abolished is death.
27) For HE [GTF] HAS PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION
UNDER HIS [JC's] FEET.
The reason God has put all things in subjection
under His feet is because Christ has already won
Colossians 2:15 . . . When He had disarmed the rulers and
authorities, He made a public display of them, having
triumphed over them through Him it (autw) [the cross].
1 Corinthians 15:57 Thanks be to God, who gives us the
victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
