Chapter 23: "The Resurrection of the Just"
 Christ remains at the right hand of God the Father until the time when the Father puts all enemies to be His footstool: “Jehovah said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.” (Ps. 110:1) Jehovah shall then send the rod of Christ’s strength out of Zion: “Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.” He does not leave His place at the right hand of glory above (Matthew 26:64) until the Father has prepared the enemies to be His footstool: then Christ comes forth to act on the commission thus received; and then He puts forth His authority in subjecting all enemies to himself, as set for that purpose by the Father. Then He reigns in bringing all into subjection. Those who hold that Christ will leave the right hand of God to receive His Church secretly, before the Father has prepared the foes to be His footstool (thus contradicting His words before the high priest), have sometimes tried to render the passage in Psalm 110, and the citations of it in the New Testament, as though they meant “until I do set, or am setting,” as if it were what He is about to do. Some have even gone the length of asserting that critically the notion is not that of the future perfect. A passage from Genesis, which was said to show this as to the Hebrew, was some years ago quoted and circulated in print; but for the sake of any puzzled by this, I mention, that the words quoted from Genesis were not his sentiment, but an opinion, the incorrectness of which he was showing, as any Hebrew scholar might do! It is wonderful that any one can say that the Greek in the New Testament can mean anything except “until I shall have placed thine enemies.” The words “until He have put” are a similar construction, and any one can see that this is not “until He is putting;” the whole force of the argument turns on the thing having been done.
