πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Until When?

One of the greatest prophecies of Scripture is found in Psalm 110:1 where David wrote: β€œThe Lord said unto my Lord, Sit Thou at My right hand until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.”

In Matt. 22:41-46 our Lord explained that this was a prophecy about Himself, David’s Son and Lord. Men might hate Him and cry β€œAway with Him!” They might nail Him to a tree and laugh and sneer at Him, but God the Father responds by saying: β€œHere, come sit at My right hand until I make your enemies your footstool.”

We should never forget that according to Bible prophecy God’s response to man’s rejection of Christ was to be judgment and wrath. In Psalm 2 the question is asked why the nations rage and the people of Israel imagine a vain thing: that they can get along without the One whom God has anointed to be King. The Psalm depicts God laughing at their attempts to thwart His purposes and predicts that β€œthe Lord shall have them in derision” and β€œspeak unto them in His wrath.”

At Pentecost all were ready for the judgment to fall. Christ had been crucified and β€œthe last days” had begun, as Peter declared in ActsΒ 2:16,17, quoting from the prophet Joel. But strangely, while some of Joel’s prophecy was fulfilled, or began to be fulfilled, at that time, the rest of it was not, for God did not β€” and has not yet β€” sent the prophesied judgment.

Thank God, in infinite grace He interrupted the prophetic program, delayed the remainder of its fulfillment and revealed to the Apostle Paul His secret purpose to offer His enemies everywhere salvation and reconciliation by free grace, through faith in the crucified, risen Savior. In His Ephesian letter the Apostle asks whether they have heard of β€œthe dispensation of the grace of God, which is given me to you-ward; how that by revelation He made known unto me the mystery” (Eph. 3:1-3). Now, thank God, His eternal purpose in Christ is no longer a secret. While the day of grace lasts we may be β€œjustified freely by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 3:24). source
