The Enemy is Under Your Feet

 Mal_4:2-3 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and you shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.

Here the Word says that "YOU shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this, says the Lord of hosts."

Too many people are being controlled by the devil because they don't know the authority they have in Jesus. He controls our mouths, we say things we know we shouldn't.  He controls our actions, we do things we know we shouldn't.  He can oppress us, he can put depression on us, and we allow it to happen. We give in to what ever the enemy wants. In the verse above He says, 'on the day that I do this'. This is a prophecy concerning the day that Jesus would transfer power and authority back to the believers, at the cross. We are living in 'that day'.
Luk_10:19  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy:  and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
He has now given us authority to tread on and over all the power of the enemy. We have that power now, in the name of Jesus, to act on His behalf.  The enemy is under our feet!
Isa_54:14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

We need to establish that we are in right standing with God through Jesus Christ. We need to establish who we are in Christ, that because of Him we have authority to tread upon the enemy. We are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named. He has put all things under Jesus feet and Jesus tell us He has given us that same power and authority, as believers. (Eph. 1:21-23, 2:6) We need to understand that because of what Jesus did on the cross we can trample the wicked and he is ashes under the soles of our feet. If we will establish ourselves in right-standing (righteousness) with God we can and will be victorious over the enemy. The enemy no longer has dominion over us. Halleluiah!! Praise God!!! Now rejoice, your name is written in heaven!!!!
