What is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, and You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet. Psalm 8:4-6.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

I have put Satan under your feet, keep him there. And by that I mean respond to his attacks with the command of truth. Speak out quickly and with authority and keep him down where he belongs—under your feet.

For the report of your obedience has reached to all; therefore I am rejoicing over you, but I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. Romans 16:19-20.

What is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, and You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet. Psalm 8:4-6.

You who are in Christ have Satan where he belongs, in the dirt under your feet as you sit high above seated in Christ your head as a member of His body, and where He is, His body is.

I pray that the eyes of your heart be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:18-23.

In your resurrected spirit you are seated above all things with Christ at My right hand as I put your enemies as a footstool under your feet. Physically, however, you are still on earth in your earthly body to carry out the work of the ministry, your unique assignment as a member of the body of Christ on earth. A life of good deeds to which I called you and prepared for you before I formed you in the womb.

On earth there are opposing forces which will stand before you and come against you in opposition to the truth of your call, but they all have one leader and source of their hatred, ill will, and malice, and you know who that is. Originally I put him in Eden as the guardian cherub who served Adam and Eve, but though created perfect, by his own trade and imagination, unrighteousness was found in him which turned to violence and made him a murderer and a liar—the thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Adam submitted to him and abdicated his dominion throne to Satan, but Jesus, as Son of Man, the second and last Adam, came and won dominion back and kicked the devil off that throne.

And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Revelation 12:9.

And woe to the earth, for his fury is great as he knows that his time is short.

But even though the time of the leasehold handed to him by Adam upon the earth is not quite over yet, which still, by Adam’s designation, makes him the “ruler” of the worldly and the “Babylonian” system, the good news is you can live under the authority of another Kingdom even in this world and YOU, who are in covenant with Me, can rule in the midst of your enemies.

The LORD (Yaweh) says to my Lord (Adonai): “Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.” The LORD (Yaweh) will stretch forth Your (Adonai’s) strong scepter from Zion, saying, “Rule in the midst of Your enemies.” Psalm 110:1-2.

So even though there is not much to be done about locking the devil completely up right now before the time for the expiration of man’s leasehold, you, who are of the Covenant, can opt out of the system of the world, i.e. that of one whom Adam made ruler of the world in his place, the devil.

“Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard and put a wall around it and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and leased it out to vine-growers and went on a journey.” Matthew 21:33.

The leasehold interest of mankind will soon expire and the fee simple of the earth will return to Me, the true maker and owner of all. But I entrusted to you the dominion and authority over the earth until the expiration of the term of your leasehold interest and in the everlasting Kingdom I will give it again to those who have been faithful to Me in Jesus. And that is when the Lamb, who has authority as Son of Man who won back what Adam lost, will break the seven seals of the title deed and return to throw out all the illegal occupants, i.e., those who have destroyed My earth and the people I created to be My own that were stolen by the devil’s lies. Like Adam and Eve. Do not be part of the devil’s cargoes that he shepherds to the realm of eternal death.

And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time came for the dead to be judged, and the time to reward Your bond-servants the prophets and the saints and those who fear Your name, the small and the great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth. Revelation 11:18.

And you can keep the devil under your feet. How? When you discern any pain, fear, doubt, evil or unclean force of darkness rising up into you put it back where it belongs quickly and it is simple but very effective, but you must do it to benefit from the authority I have given you. Speak the command of truth: OH NO YOU DON’T! YOU GET BACK UNDER MY FEET WHERE CHRIST PUT YOU. And you will feel the pain drain out and go back well beneath your feet, the fear subside and calm down and go back under your feet, the agony, the grief, the shame, the blame, the lust, the lies, the impurity, subside and go under your control back under your feet. You are in control over what is down under your feet. You tread and trample on it. You pass right over it.

You must understand that the law is just as much a part of the spiritual realm as it is of the physical. In a court of law before a judge if a complaint, petition or motion is filed against you, you must answer it or you will lose by default judgment and owe the judgment to the filing party even if you were innocent. You have to be diligent to answer or you lose. What you permit I have to permit and what you bind I have to bind in your life. And if people do not understand the law they must engage an attorney to help them file and respond correctly or they will lose.

The Israelites loosed fear and spoke that they would rather die in the desert than enter the land I had given them and they bound their victory by saying they would never win over the inhabitants of the land and would not enter. I had to permit what they testified before Me. The agreed with the devil’s lies and lived them.

Well, Satan is accusing you night and day before Me and is saying the same to you. He is also sending you unclean spirits with merchandise that you should not be accepting or agreeing with, such as sickness, pain, poverty, depression, and the like And if you do not answer, it is yours by default. Legally in court not saying anything in response is agreeing with the case against you.

It is time for you to rise up and stop let the devil win every round. When a pain, illness, impure thought or any other ugly thing contrary to My Word rises up against you then you must respond. And if you do not know the correct answer consult with your advocate. For Jesus is your advocate before Me, and He has assigned to you another advocate to be with you and in you always, the Paraclete, the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit who is My Spirit.

He guides you to all truth and will remind you of all I have said. He will teach you all things and tell of things to come. He testifies to and witnesses with your spirit.

When something contrary to My Word comes against you and rises up in you, the first thing you MUST do or it will stay by default, or even worse, by your agreement with it by repeating it as if it is the truth, is ANSWER IT WITH THE TRUTH OF MY WORD, THE PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY, AND TELL IT TO GET BACK UNDER YOUR FEET as you rule and reign in the midst of your enemies. You must cast it out of the courtroom and out of you but the only way  you can get rid of it is to ANSWER IT with the truth and put it down. The truth will win and set you free but you have to open your mouth and release it to do the work or you will lose the case.

Now I would like to bring to your attention the instructions for putting Satan under your feet that My servant David received by revelation from Me. So let us begin.

When attacked, David first looked to Me for My Word, which was his shield and refuge, and his strength. David never fought a battle without first consulting Me for the plan.

As for God, His way is blameless; the Word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. And who is a rock, except our God, God who girds me with strength and makes my way blameless? He makes my feet like hinds’ feet, and sets me upon my high places. Psalm 18:30-31.

I give you My full armor of light and make you strong in the power of My might. And I give you hind’s feet to run upon your high places where the devil cannot rise up, for it is too high for his ways. The way of honesty and truth is too far above him for him to get even a toehold there.

And I would pause there for one moment. Lies are diabolical. It is impossible for Me to lie. I tell you that liars are not accepted into My Kingdom. You must be very careful about this. I ask you to be honest in everything. In your business, even down to your timesheets and expenditures, in what you sell to customers or do for clients, I have a problem with cheating and dishonest weight and measure. I want you not even to twist the truth so that you do not really lie but it gives another impression than what is true. And avoid gossip and repeating what you hear about others that you have not verified. This will help keep Satan under your feet because dishonesty is his trade. Guile and lies are his lifestyle.

But continuing with Psalm 18,

He trains my hand for battle, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, and Your right hand upholds me; and You have stooped to make me great. Psalm 18:34-35.

I train you for battle with My Word and give you the arrows of truth to shoot back at the devil’s fiery arrows of lies and I give you the shield of faith, which is faith in My Word of truth. Death and life are in the hand of your tongue. Proverbs 18:21. And I train your hand for battle for I have put My Words in your mouth and put My Spirit in and on you.

I was in Christ Jesus reconciling you to Myself not counting your sins against you. I have stooped down to make you great. I took all your sins and put them on Jesus and punished Him in your place. I have lifted you up from the ash heap to sit you with the Prince of Peace (Shalom).

You enlarge my steps under me, and my feet have not slipped. I pursued my enemies and overtook them, and I did not turn back until they were consumed. I shattered them, so that they were not able to rise; they fell under my feet. Psalm 18:36-38.

This is what you must do with Satan and the evil thoughts and accusations, the battle tactics and storms the devil tries to overwhelm you with so he can get you to agree with his lies and denounce My Word. You must aggressively answer every accusation against you and prove it false until he is back under your feet.

“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication (righteousness) is from Me,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17.

Do not let the devil even so much as bruise your heel. Put on the footgear of the gospel of shalom and there is nothing he can do to rise up when you tread on him with that. And treading is answering with confident command. And that is the way you resist him so that he has to flee from you.

For You have girded me with strength for battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me. You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, and I destroyed those who hated me. They cried for help, but there was none to save, even to the LORD, but He did not answer them. Then I beat them fine as the dust before the wind; I emptied them out as the mire of the streets. Psalm 18:39-42.

He put the devil and his cohorts back in the dirt in which they crawl. You will notice David put them as mire in the streets where everyone will ride over them. But David also tells you it is I who gave him the strength and I who subdued that which rose up against him, that I made the enemies turn their backs to him and flee, but he destroyed them and beat them fine as dust before the wind. David was a tither and above that he gave generous offerings and inspired his mighty men to do the same. Just read the offerings he and they gave to build My great house that Solomon had the privilege of building with the plans and riches already offered and stored up by David and his mighty men. When the destroyer arises make sure you are a tither and do not withhold offerings, for it is then I will rebuke him for you.

Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘How have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you! Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes,” says the Lord of hosts. “All the nations will call you blessed, for you shall be a delightful land,” says the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:8-12.

I love you. You must answer and cast whatever Satan has attacked  you with back down under your feet. Do not allow it to rise again.
