The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” Psalm 110:1
This one stumped the religious leaders.
In Matthew 22, Jesus asks them a question.
“If Messiah is the Son of David (which he is)
Why would David call a descendant Lord?”
Would the God of heaven allow
A mere descendant of David
To sit at His right hand?
Of course not! It can’t be anyone but Jesus.
At Jesus’s trial, He affirmed,
“[H]ereafter you will see THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER,
and COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.” (Matthew 26:64).
They knew what He meant and that sealed their decision.
Notice what Jesus said. Sitting and Coming.
Now He’s sitting. Soon He will be coming.
The psalmist tells us what that means.
The enemies have become the footstool.
But Christ will reign.
“The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter.
Rule in the midst of your enemies!” Psalm 110:2
The right hand today. The throne soon.
Let us ensure we are part of the kingdom
And not the footstool.
