Ephesians 1:22 – All under his feet.

30-04-2018 - Posted by Andre Piet

And he subjects all under his feet…

As Paul writes that God subjects all to Christ’s feet, he refers to Psalms 8. This is the psalm in which the question is asked: “What is a mortal that You are mindful of him, or a son mankind that You are visiting him?” This psalm doesn’t deal about Adam or a human in general, but about “the Ben Adam”, which means the Son of Man. He would be below the messenger for a short time to be subsequently crowned with honour and glory        .

The subjection of all under his feet, will start in the coming eon. Not before. It is the characteristic glory of the coming eons, that Christ will reign and that all we be subjected under his feet. In the Scriptures these eons are often called “the eons of the eons”.  In glory they will vastly surpass all the world’s ages that have been so far. And it will be increasingly more magnificent and glorious!

The last enemy which Christ will subject under his feet will be death (1 Cor. 15:26). This means that, eventually, he will vivify all who have remained dead. No more death and GOD will be “all in all”!
