Thou Shalt Bruise His Heel

by Pastor Jeromy John Visser


Brothers and sisters, let’s begin this lesson with a passage found in Colossians 1:14-18 that speaks of Jesus saying; “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.”

This tremendous passage not only proves that Christ Jesus is the ever-living God of Israel since “by him were all things created” but it specifically states that He “is the head of the body” or church. Naturally, this morning’s topic ties right into last weekend’s sermon titled It Shall Bruise Thy Head where we looked deeper into ruddy David’s removal of the Nephalim Goliath’s head. There can only be one ‘head’ for Christians and it must always be Jesus Christ, period. There are numerous play-actor ‘churches’ out there who instead like to place themselves in the position of Yahweh and spend more time ‘excommunicating’ their own members than trying to “feed the sheep (John 21:17)” as instructed by the Master.

In this study we’ll be examining Jesus Christ, “the head of all things” so we can all be better prepared to spot the plentiful false cults who deny Him as the head of their lives or family proving themselves to be a lower form of antichrist. We must be able to discern the legit teachers from those who worship man’s money as a lower-case ‘god’ and do nothing but beg – there are many of these types of groups in the Angelo-Israel Christian movement. Jesus tells us to judge people by their “fruits (Matthew 7:20)” because in time those same works, or lack thereof, always begin to surface leaving the offender guilty as charged. For example, this month alone the so-called Christian Separatist ‘Church’ Society and the post-Gulett Legion of Saints have attacked and condemned more Christians than actively walked with Jesus during His own ministry.

(Head Jesus:)

Even though He was “God manifest in the flesh (I Timothy 3:16)” Jesus once told a certain scribe; “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head (Matthew 8:20).” The ways of man are dissimilar to Yahweh and when we see so-called ‘teachers’ of God’s Word not acting in accordance with Jesus’ own commandments we need to be able to rebuke those same false Christians. The Way is narrow and few people find it in life (Matthew 7:14) so let’s always be careful to do as Jesus instructs, not only in regards to ‘baptism and repentance’ but in all things.

When speaking to the Colossians, Paul warns; “Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God (Collosians 2:18-19).” Even in the early days of the church there was angel-worship and ‘followers’ who refused to hold to the “Head” who is Jesus Christ. Like a majority of the Bible, this still applies today.

The contrast to this passage on false prophets is found in Ephesians where Paul teaches; “Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love (Ephesians 4:13-16).”

One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how many Christians move from group to group accepting every ‘new doctrine’ that rears its ugly head. Practically, any abomination imaginable can be found taught behind the modern (and government-owned) ‘churches’ today. Like double-minded leeches certain people can only be ‘tossed to and fro’ and ‘carried about’ with every wind of changing doctrine. Jesus tells us that He is the only Way, Truth and Life in John 14:6 so we must be able to trust in those precious Words completely. As you can see, Jesus is the correct Way because He's the Head (Ephesians 4:15) so He has left us a set of guidelines on positions for the Body of Christ known as His church. Let’s scrutinize these ‘ranks’ now.

(Head Husband:)

It should be obvious to the world that homosexuality is a grievous sin and is punishable by death in both the Old and New Testaments (Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:32) yet the anti-Christian ADL has recently attempted to add America to the ranks of infiltrated Europe by calling for the Bible to be ‘outlawed’ as being “hateful and bias against federally protected groups such as homosexuals.” The reason for this is because it’s an outright attack on family values as outlined in our scriptures so these antichrist snakes will stop at nothing to attack Jesus Christ and Christian standards.

For example, Paul says; “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing (Ephesians 5:22-24).” These words plainly state that a man and woman have different positions and are not considered ‘equal’ in rank although one flesh (Genesis 2:24). It was Paul who taught homosexuals are worthy of death in the book of Romans proving Jesus own Words that the Law is eternal (Matthew 5:18) and to be followed by a Christian nation.

I briefly touched upon this aspect in Sodomites: Haters of God and now invite everyone to read that sermon at CPM online who hasn’t because the time has come when “they will not endure sound doctrine” but have instead set up replacement teachers who tickle their ears (II Timothy 4:3). Any attack on the Living Word is an attack on Jesus Christ Himself yet many Christians ‘in name only’ still push the erroneous claim that Christ stemmed from Judah and not Yahweh Himself. Numerous Babylonian whorehouses can be found across the globe today all accepting new age doctrines such as feminism and faggotry into their midst and will eventually “bring upon themselves swift destruction (II Peter 2:1).” If we don’t place Jesus as the very Head of our lives but instead rest Him on the ‘back burner’ for humanistic quests we can also expect Him to do the same for us (Matthew 10:33) and deny us the Kingdom.

Still, there are always those types out there who prefer to doubt. For those unlikely souls we have a valuable second witness in I Corinthians 11:3 where Paul says; “I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” Here are our ranks from top to bottom – Yahweh, man, woman then obviously children. This teaching straightforwardly shatters the myth that all ‘men’ are created equal because Christian men should only focus on Jesus Christ while their wives and children submit to both. A church ‘body’ comprises many different types of Christians all at varying levels of maturity so we should never attack those who don’t prove themselves to be antichrist.

(Lifted Heels:)

In Psalm 41:9 we read; “Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.” This dismal prophecy was fulfilled in Judas Iscariot who was ‘entered into’ by Satan (Luke 22:3, John 13:27) in order to betray Christ bringing about God’s perfect Will. Jesus says this about Judas; “The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me (John 13:16-18).”

Jesus’ own chosen bride is Israel and I’d like to point out that Jacob is the only other ‘heel-graber’ to be found in the Bible meaning that he fought for the essential birthright. The Bible plainly says that Yahweh hated Esau (Malachi 1:3, Romans 9:13) but Jacob “took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God (Hosea 12:3).” We should all strive to use Jacob/Israel as an example and refuse to allow another our position with the bridegroom. As I've said before, the only thing that Jesus' foot crushes is the 'false-rock' of Lucifer's head because “Death [Satan] is swallowed up in victory (1 Corinthians 15:54).

So, the eternal war goes on between the children of Yahweh and the children of the devil (I John 3:10) with our side being victorious because God is the Head of all things. Sadly, many do fall aside in this struggle to false doctrines, worldly desires, excessive finances, pointless careers and all other manner of distraction. Let’s be sure to follow these instructions from Jesus: “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:19-21).”


My purpose with both It Shall Bruise Thy Head and Thou Shalt Bruise His Heel is to hopefully give you a little extra ‘food for thought’ to expand your thinking when it comes to the ‘curse of enmity’ as transcribed in Genesis 3:15. This divine hatred is placed between the two seedlines by Yahweh and as the children of God Himself we should always use our own discernment because “he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man (I Corinthians 2:15).”

There is far too much bickering between the brethren over trifling Bible doctrine or individual political affiliation and these are just more Tactics of the Lawless One. There are numerous Saxon-Israelite fellowships out there today that are mere ‘smokescreens’ designed by the opponent in order to add more pessimism to an already unpopular Christian faith. Don’t be fooled by these hognose snakes – the ‘fruits’ of these counterfeit factions are usually just attacking other people who trust Jesus.
