for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
Luke 24:40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. .
There is a place we can come to and not be turned away. I believe that wonderful
place is found at the feet of Jesus. From to Old to the New Testament we find
wonderful descriptions of events taking place at His feet. What is so wonderful
is to remember we can always draw near to the Lord! (John 6:37 KJV) All that the
Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise

saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind
to see: and they glorified the God of Israel. .
VI. We see that the feet of Jesus are also a place of suffering.
Ps 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have
enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
A. Pastor Allen in Ohio, had a vision or dream of Jesus after having a
heart attack and a split in his church. The only thing he asked the Lord when he
saw him was why Jesus was wearing sandals? He heard Jesus say" I have come a
long way for you and the road has not been easy"

was a Samaritan.
A. Place where all can come. (Acts 10:34 KJV) Then Peter opened his
mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
B. God does want to hear our appreciation.
XI. He alone is worthy, see what John the Baptist said:
Acts 13:25 And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think ye that I
am? I am not he. But, behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet
I am not worthy to loose.
XII. We have Victory at His feet because everything is under his feet.
1 Cor 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1 Cor 15:27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all
things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all
things under him. .

over all things to the church, .

A. We are sitting with Him in heavenly places. This is where our position of
strength and power is located. This is why the Bible tells us to give “no place
to the devil!” Our place is sitting with Him in heavenly places.
XIII. What a day that will be when we all shall gather at His feet and we
shall see Him and be like Him!
Zec 14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when
he fought in the day of battle. Zech 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day
upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount
of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west,
and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove
toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
Rev 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right
hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: .
A. It is and it shall be a place of final submission, every knee will
bend, every tongue will confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!.
B. I remember in vision or dream of seeing the feet of Jesus on my folk’s
farm. It was during a all day prayer of seeking Him. I wanted His perfect Will
in my life, so that I might one day hear Him say “Well done good and faithful
servant”. Instead He spoke to my heart, that if I wanted to be a “good and
faithful servant”, one thing I would have to do all the days of my life and that
is to follow where His feet would lead me. Little did I know that following
Jesus would take me into over 125 countries in 48 years to preach His Word and
point people to Him. It has been worth everything. I still want to hear one day
“good and faithful servant’!
LET US, EACH ONE FOLLOW
THE FEET OF JESUS!
God bless you and yours!
