The body of Christ has a bruised heel

The body of Christ has suffered a bruised heel.  God the father cursed the serpent who deceived mankind and pronounced this prophetic truth within the curse concerning his only begotten son Jesus Christ and Satan his enemy - follow me.  Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”  God speaking to Satan told him that Jesus would bruise his head and that in return Satan would bruise Jesus’ heel.  Now the Earth is the Lord’s footstool but Satan’s head is full of rebellion.  Jesus bruised Satan’s head by proving total obedience to his father. When Jesus prayed about his crucifixion three times to the father, on the third he said, “not my will by thine will be done”, this signifying total submission to his father.  Even down to his unjust and underserving crucifixion of the cross did Jesus still obey his father's will.    When the crucifixion and resurrection were accomplished, Satan’s head, and warped way of thinking was bruised!
Now notice the order of the bruising in Genesis 3:15.  Jesus causes the first bruise but Satan causes the second.  The second comes after the first.  The Earth is the dwelling place of mankind and we who are believers in the Lord become the footstool where he lays his feet to rest.  And when we walk the Earth to carry his gospel, he walks with us, for we are his living epistles and his tabernacle to dwell in.  But as prophesied by God the Father, his son's body would suffer a bruised heel.  That bruise is none other than the rejection of the seventh day Sabbath.  The Sabbath is one of the Ten Commandments; it is not a Mosaic ordinance.   In fact it is number four and included in the first out of the two greatest commands.  Love the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind and to love your neighbor as yourself.  This is a two halved summary of the ten.  It is true that Mosaic ordinances were assigned to the Sabbath; however they were given to national Israel under the old covenant, of which none exist anymore.  Today we have the Church, the true Israel of God and we have a King and a Lord, Jesus Christ and he alone is the Lord of the Sabbath.  His body, which is the Church, is limping its way into his second coming, this ought not to be!  It’s time for the savior’s heel to be healed – let’s open our doors on the Sabbath and begin to worship God with all fervent prayers and supplication.  Let’s unite and pour our hearts out to God and let the windows of heaven open, healing begin, transformation realized and the power to overcome prove to this world that God did send his only Son Jesus as stated in the 17th chapter of the gospel of John.
Pastors please open the doors of the Sanctuary on the seventh day Sabbath of the Lord Jesus Christ.
