HE HAS CRUSHED THE ENEMY UNDER OUR FEET so that the earth might be our footstool Job 23:11

see also Psalm 18:38 therefore we are seated with Him Ephesians 2:6 and we are ore than overcomers
Romans 8:37

In Genesis God tells Adam and Eve to subdue the earth and in as we are raised up with Him who
overcame the world, we too can overcome the enemy that is death


And now a letter to the Church in Rome  and Paul writes "Jesus the prince of peace will
soon crush Satan under our  feet" (my own words) Romans 16:20

Here Paul commends sister Phoebe, a servant of the church in Cenchre to the Church In Rome

And speaks of division in the Church and the victory of Christ Jesus and His death on the Cross

Winning  the victory over death and overcoming the world, or subdueing it Genesis 1:28 and was
victorious as Mankind was to subdue the earth so too Jesus subdued death and in this He put the enemy
under our feet to crush death and to lead a victorious procession of saints in His train

John 16:33  And He who overcome the world - overcame the prince of this world  John 12:31
being the second Adam


 "For judgment I have come into this world, John 9:39 so that the blind will see and those who
see will become blind.

This being the present judgement of God John 12:47 Jesus did not come to judge the world but to
save it

Here in this we see differing types of judgement, as Jesus comes into the world not to judge but to
save yet He lays judgement upon mankind as too those who will be saved  and those who will not

As too... we judge Matthew 7:1  You judge by human standards; John 8:15 I pass judgment on no one
being a differing type a judgement being human judgement

 Stop judging by mere appearances 1 Samuel 16:7, and make a right judgment.John 7:24

Matthew 13:30  is past judgement and the divide is already at work in the field


Paul's confidence that they "would" gain the victory

"Satan" is Hebrew, meaning originally "an accuser, a calumniator,"

So satan creates discord in the church, this is a division going on in the Church in Rome and paul
states "The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet" now look for the Cross reference 
Genesis 3:15

Satan can be used here for a  collective term meaning the dark forces or sopitual forces at work
within the body to create division

The Son of God was manifested, to destroy the works of the devil" in 1 John 3:8

So the Church of Jesus Christ has overcame as Jesus has overcome

And there is an  the emnity that comes form  satan and this emnity is serving to create discord
and disunity within the body of Christ 2 Corinthians 11:15

Herein satan cannot overcome and will be triodden down by the saints as Jesus has ALREADY overcome

And in this we celebrate
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
