1 Corinthians 15:26-27
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he hath put all things under his feet…
This scripture is telling us all things are put under the feet of Jesus but not destroyed and these things are enemies of Jesus. The first Adam brought the curse upon the earth and it is still here. We still see the effects of the curse all around us which brought on sickness and death. The last man Adam (Jesus) has corrected what the first Adam caused, but the problems are not destroyed, just put under the feet of Jesus. Some day when Jesus returns death will vanish and so will all the effects of the curse we see all around us. These enemies of Jesus will be finally destroyed for everyone, the last of them being death.
Even though all the effects of the curse are still on the earth today and not destroyed, they are under Jesus’ feet. We can see them under our feet also since the church is the body of Christ. We are connected to His Spirit when we are born again and by faith in His word we can see the enemies of poverty, sickness and death turned into blessings, health and life as we claim God’s promises through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. When we claim God’s Word we become a witness of what God has said making it establish in our lives for everything becomes established in the mouth of two or three witnesses. (Deuteronomy 19:15, 2 Corinthians 13:1).
Enemy under Jesus Feet by Power of Love and Faith
Jesus gave His life on the cross for the entire world to be set free through Him. This is evidenced in each person as they believe that Jesus did this for them and they are born again of His Spirit. The love that Jesus has for us does not stop there it continues on as we learn more about living life in Christ. Faith is needed the first day of a Christian’s born again life and continues as the medium by which all things that are currently under Jesus’ feet become under our feet as we walk in faith which works by love and received through the gift of righteousness (Galatians 5:5).
Beloved, a good example is when you have a need to be delivered from the enemy of sickness; find healing scriptures and claim them as your own. When you have a need to live outside of this fallen world in the miraculous power of provision for anything, find Gods Word for each situation and extend your faith and words as a witness with God that these things are yours through Jesus Christ our Lord. God has already put all enemies of this fallen world under the feet of Jesus and by speaking faith in what God has done through Jesus we receive the benefits.
