One of the most neglected but most glorious promises in the Bible is that of the Footstool. Praise Jesus! Once in Heaven, there is a certain risk of getting bored after the first few quadrillion years. Personally, I am not too worried, as I am going to be mightily entertained by being fed by Jesus Christ (Revelation 7:17), giggling on top of the lookout spot at the demise of the sinners (Luke 16:26), while God is drying my tears of laughter (Revelation 21:4). Still, it is good to know that the footstool solution is also available at a constant basis!
For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Now THAT is going to be fun! Some of the worst sinners will be taken into Heaven to avoid the tungsten enemas and other tortures that Jesus has designed for Hell (Matthew 8:12). Instead, these enemies of ours will spend the eternity prostrate submitting to us, True Christians™. Glory! It will be exciting to see if they will keep their human form, as follows:
The alternative above looks most entertaining. The enemy, the sinner will spend year after year after year (after year) in the prone position, never ever will he get any relief. He will beg for tungsten enemas but will receive none!
This one also looks nice with some outdoor entertainment preferably by a nice brook with bubbling refreshments. The footstool above looks like a Welshman, and they’re all enemies of God so there’ll be plenty to choose from.
But… We might be surprised, if Jesus decides to transfrom the enemies into actualottomans. In that case, I’d really like the model depicted below!
For those with a more playful mind, for instance the True Christian™ ladies who are all intellectually inferior to me but still pious, a fun model can be seen below!
With eyes the enemy would still be able to see how we frolic and enjoy ourselves in Heaven while (s)he is confined to the ottoman shape for eternity.
This is what I expect. This is what I shall get. It’s a promise!
From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
But who? Who is the enemy that I shall use as my footstool? There’s so much to choose from? The pope Frances? Hillary Clinton? Queen of England? Mr. Dawkins. Not Stephen Hawking, he’s too bony and I crave for eternal comfort! Perhaps Marlon Brando would do? Or Luciano Pavarotti the Papist?
What about you?? Brethren and Sisters! Who is gonna be your footstool for ever and ever?!
Yours in Christ,

Isabella White (24-09-2019 05:52 PM): Well, upon my word, dear Brother White -- It is so hard to choose from the various options, but I think I will have to agree that the antique footstool looks very nice. You know, I have a collection of ...
Basilissa (25-09-2019 01:38 AM): I'll go out on a limb and assume all Turks will become ottomans. The name tells it all - Turkey used to be called the Ottoman Empire. By the way, I must say, whoever named that country both times was ...
