Pondering “God’s right hand” as I gaze upon Dave’s left.
Isn’t it awesome that “God’s right hand” refers to the Messiah, the LORD Jesus Christ, that He is of equal position, honor, power and authority with God (John 1:1-5).
Also the fact that Christ is “sitting” refers to the fact that His work of redemption is done and when the fullness of the gentiles is brought in (Romans 11:25), Christ’s enemies will be made His footstool as the end of the age comes, all prophecy is completed, and time is no more.
Now that’s GOOD NEWS!
“Your right hand, O LORD, is majestic in power, Your right hand, O LORD, shatters the enemy. (Exodus 15:6)
I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. (Psalm -6:8)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:1-5)
I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. (Romans 11:25)
The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” (Psalm 110:1)
“‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”’ (Luke 20:42-44)
