Under Your Feet
And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, Eph1:22
We are the body of Christ. He is the Head. And the scripture above tells us that God has placed ALL things under His feet.
Jesus Christ, when He died and rose again from the dead by the glory of the Father-the Holy Spirit- was exalted and given in Name and place far above all thrones and rule and principalities and power, not only in this world but also in the one to come.
He completely defeated and vanquished Satan and his cohorts and then delegated that authority to the Church- you and I.
We Reign Now In Christ Jesus
We are to rule and reign Now in His stead until He makes His enemies His footstool.
Ps110:1, Heb.2:8, Matt.22:44)
We need to walk in this light, in this consciousness that all things are under His feet and therefore, under our feet, since we are His Body. We are united with Christ (Rom6:3, 1Cor6:17). The very life that flows through Him flows through us John15:1. And when we walk in this consciousness, it becomes a game changer. And we will live a victorious Christian life where we bring all that pertain to our life under the feet of Jesus- under our feet.
Know that we are called to reign now until He comes back in the rapture, which is the next agenda on God’s calendar.
Jesus delegated His authority in 18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
We are sitting right now with Him in heavenly places.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, Eph2:4-6
That implies not just defeat of our adversaries but complete mastery, sovereignty and dominion over them. 1Cor 15:25,27
We are to reign through Christ in this age
New King James Version
17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
New King James Version
For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His Feet.
And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,Eph1:22
Yes, the devil is under our feet. But we need to keep him there, not just by declaring this truth daily in our walk and words but in every area of our lives. We are enjoined not to give place to the devil in Eph.4:27. In our health, finances, our relationships, our purpose in life, the enemy will rear his head through various temptations, insinuations and assaults. We must continually stand our ground and cast him out in the matchless Name of Jesus. The way we do this is to submit ourselves to God, keep His Word and the devil and his cohorts will remain subjugated-under our feet.
7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James4:7
Jesus said, if you love me, keep my commandments. John14:15
He also said
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. John 8:31
How do we keep Satan under our feet?
Not holding grudge
Not nurturing, anger or resentment or cultivating bitterness…
And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]. Eph.4:27
We must also watch our words.
Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Prov 18:21
Watch what you say about yourself and about others.
Speak what God says about you. Do not undermine what He has esteemed. Think of positives things God has said in His word concerning you: But before you can say what God says about you, you have to know it. And to know it, you have to delight in His word more than your necessary food like Job.
I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread. Job23:12
You must find God’s word delightful and joy-inducing, like Jeremiah.
16 Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts Jer15:16
Know who you are in Christ and affirm it daily.
You are blessed with every spiritual blessings (Eph1:3). You are the head and not the tail (2Cor2:14). You are complete in Christ Col2:10. You have the mind of Christ 1Cor.2:16). You are royalty (1Pet2:9) of the chosen generation, a King-priest to God, ambassador of Christ (2Cor.5:18), healed by His stripes 1Pet2:24), a new creation (2Cor5:17) with the very life of God. You are more than a conqueror (Rom8: 37)
Yes, think of whatsoever is true, just, pure, admirable, lovely, of good report etc ( Phil4:8)
Say what God said;
New International Version
5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
6 So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?)
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Eph4: 29, 32
This is how to keep Satan in his proper place-Under Your Feet.
Now enjoy this song and share this message and the song if you were blessed.
Under Your Feet
Goliath, the Giant of Gath
Met his match in little David,
Who showed, “One with God is majority.”
Goliath bit the dust,
no matter how macho.
Similarly, Jesus won the victory
When He triumphed through the cross.
One with Jesus is still majority.
Because He rose from the dead,
Giving us New Life and authority.
50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David.
51 Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled.
15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
Goliath, the Giant of Gath
will manipulate you if allow him.
He will play mind games with you,
Saying, “Has God said?”
And when you listen and obey him,
he pulls a fast one, pulls the rug out
from beneath your feet
he specialises in telling lies
He thrives on causing you to doubt God.
Genesis 3: The Temptation and Fall of Man
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
Goliath, the Giant of Gath
Is like Lucifer, Satan, your adversary.
He will often pretend he does not exist
to deceive you and steal your victory.
But you must stand your ground, be on your guard,
Be on the alert and give him no room.
Be not ignorant of his stratagems,ploys, wiles and schemes.
27 nor give place to the devil.Eph4:27
11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2Cor 2:11
Summon Your Power, O Lord
Summon Your power, O Lord
Show us Your strength
as You have done before, O Lord, O Lord
Part Your heavens and come down
Touch the mountains and let them smoke, O Lord, O Lord
Flash Your lightening, O Lord
Confuse all Your enemies
Shoot Your arrows, O Lord
And scatter, scatter, scatter every foe
Summon Your power, O Lord
Show us Your strength as You have done before, O Lord, O Lord
Let a fire go before You
And burn up all Your enemies, O Lord, O Lord
Reach down the mighty waters
Deliver those called by Your name, O Lord
May the zeal of the Lord of hosts
Bring this to pass to His glory, O Lord, O Lord
Psalms 68: The Glory of God in His Goodness to Israel To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song.
1 Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.
2 As smoke is driven away, So drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, So let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.
4 Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him.
17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, Even thousands of thousands; The Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the Holy Place.
18 You have ascended on high, You have led captivity captive; You have received gifts among men, Even from the rebellious, That the LORD God might dwell there.
19 Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Selah
20 Our God is the God of salvation; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death.
21 But God will wound the head of His enemies, The hairy scalp of the one who still goes on in his trespasses.
Summon your power, God; show us your strength, our God, as you have done before.
Keeping Satan Check- Prevails Prayers(3)
Father, I thank You for the authority of the Believer, in the Name of Jesus.
Thank You that the weapons of my warfare are not carnal but mighty through God, to the pulling down of strongholds and casting down every imagination that exalts itself against the revealed will of God.
I bind every principality and power and their evil machinations, ploys and strategies. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises against me in judgement, I show to be in the wrong. When the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against him.
Thank you, Father, that I have overcome them by the precious blood of Jesus. The blood speaks better than the blood of bulls and goats. I overcome them by the Word of my testimony. Every test that comes my way brings a testimony. Every trial brings a triumph, and every adversity brings Prosperity.
Thank You, Father, that I am the head and not the tail. I shall prevail in every situation I face because greater is He that is in me than he that is this world. God is my refuge and my strength and my ever-present help. He fights for me. His angels are on assignment on my behalf. There are more with me than are against me. God is working everything together for my good. I am the apple of His eyes, His treasured possession. Whoever touches me, touches Him. I am covered, protected, enveloped by his love. My life is hidden in Christ in God. Thanks be to God, who always causes me to triumph. Through my God, I shall do valiantly. It is He who treads down my enemies. They are under my feet. He makes a banquet for me in the presence of my enemies. He goes before me to make every crooked place straight. Every fiery experience I encounter will only refine me to be better. It will burn off every dross and unveil the gold in me. For my light affliction, which is but for a moment, works a far more exceeding weight of glory for me.
This is why I may be hard-pressed, but I am not crushed, persecuted not abandoned. He said,” I will never leave you nor forsake you until the end.” And when I am perplexed I need not be in despair because I know who I serve and whom I have believed. He is good all the time. I do not look at the things which are seen, but the things which are unseen, knowing that the things which are seen are temporary, but that which is not seen is eternal. Therefore I do not lose heart on any account and can call those things which be not as though they were. I see with the eyes of Faith. I see through the eyes of God. I am more than a conqueror. The Kingdom of God suffers violence but the violent take it by force. I tread down serpents and scorpions wherever they rear their heads. Thanks be to God who always causes me to triumph. I am a Victor, a winner, able only and not below. I put satan and his cohorts in check. I give them no room. I am not ignorant of their ploys and evil intents. I expose them for what they are with the Word of God, the light of God. I use the whole armour of God – my helmet of salvation, the shield of faith, the belt of truth, shoes of the Gospel, the breastplate of righteousness and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
The Lord is My light and my salvation and my strength. Of whom shall I fear. The Lord is the stronghold of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid. Those who come against me in one way will flee in seven ways. I humble myself under the mighty hand of God and I resist the enemy and he flees.
Thank You, Lord, for giving me authority over all the power of the enemy. I cast out Demons, wherever and whenever and however they show up.
I have victory in the Name of Jesus. He disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them through the cross. That victory is mine. I enforce that victory in my life in every area-family, businesses, relationships, ministry, children, country, and in all my involvement, in Jesus’ Name. Amen,
Jesus is Lord!
Throw Your Best Shot
Throw Your Best Shot
Let it be very hot
It will not hurt
It’ll come to nought.
Death, where is your sting?
The furnace was heated
Seven times hotter than usual
God became excited and galvanised
And he unleashed the supernatural
Those bound were loosed by the fire
Designed to be their grave
Designed to be their nightmare
Yes, it gave God the opportunity
to glorify His Name
God gave them untold victory
And He remains ever the same.
Trust in Him today
As the enemy throws his best shot.
Do not cow or throw in the towel
It will all come to nought
And you will soar and tower like an eagle.
And the Wind Blew Me
And the wind blew me
To the Land of Saints and Scholars.
It was a strange get away
Allowed by the Alpha and Omega.
The foe surely meant it for evil
But the Most High meant it for good.
There, I was taught to tread down the devil
And use his treats and tricks for food.
There, I was taught lots of lessons
On how to soar with wings as an eagle.
Baptism in fire was on street called Blessington.
But God, by His might kept me. It was a miracle.
Refined through storms and fire
He let me come forth as gold
Radiating His glory despite the mire
He was my warmth in the cold.
So when the wind blows you
And God is in you, for you and with you
Know that He’s able, reliable,
merciful, powerful , faithful and true.
And will surely, I say surely, bring you through.
And this wind could be:
Financial adverse wind
Health hazard wind
Stagnation or retrogression wind
Marriage breakage wind
Single parent wind
Immigration or nationality wind
Racism or opposition wind
Family feud wind
Ministerial adverse wind
Foes and fiends’ wind
Fair weather friends
Burglary or infirmity wind
Or whatever wind you may face,
Jesus is Lord over them all.
