The God of peace will soon crush satan under your feet


This is a two-part series

If you declared in faith the Isa 14 scriptures which I provided in the previous post: You satan are like a dead body trampled underfoot then here are a few more…

Jesus Christ has destroyed the one who held the power of death – that is the devil (Heb 2:14).

Jesus Christ has bruised/broken/crushed the head of the serpent (Gen 3:15).

Jesus Christ has struck the twisting serpent, struck the fleeing serpent, Jesus Christ has slayed the serpent that is in the sea (Is 27:1).

I had the feeling to search for trod, or trodden and I found this…

You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot. – Psa 91:13

The “Treasury of David” commentary on the book of Psalms says this…

Psa_91:13 “Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder. Over force and fraud shalt thou march victoriously; bold opponents and treacherous adversaries shall alike be trodden down. When our shoes are iron and brass, lions and adders are easily enough crushed beneath our heel. “The young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. The strongest foe in power, and the most mysterious in cunning, shall be conquered by the man of God. Not only from stones in the way, but from serpents also, shall we be safe. To men who dwell in God the most evil forces become harmless, they wear a charmed life, and defy the deadliest ills. Their feet come into contact with the worst of foes, even Satan himself nibbles at their heel, but in Christ Jesus they have the assured hope of bruising Satan under their feet shortly. The people of God are the real “George and the dragon,” the true lion-kings and serpent-tamers. Their dominion over the powers of darkness makes them cry, “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy word.”

Matthew Henry says this in his commentary…

That the powers of darkness shall be triumphed over by them (Psa_91:13): Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder. The devil is called a roaring lion, the old serpent, the red dragon; so that to this promise the apostle seems to refer in that (Rom_16:20), The God of peace shall tread Satan under your feet. Christ has broken the serpent’s head, spoiled our spiritual enemies (Col_2:15), and through him we are more than conquerors; for Christ calls us, as Joshua called the captains of Israel, to come and set our feet on the necks of vanquished enemies.

And I found this…

The God of peace will soon crush satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. – Rom 16:20

Amen, I believe that Jesus Christ has crushed satan on the cross. Amen.
