The following is one chapter from the booklet "DAY OF ATONEMENT" written by Marion Fretwell

"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace: that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation: that saith unto Zion, 'Thy God Reigneth'." Isa 52:7
NO study of the End-time Ministry would be complete without mentioning the "Feet". They, being the extremities of the anatomy, are used in prophetic language to portray what Jesus is planning for His faithful followers in the extremity of this dispensation.
LET me give you a few thoughts, as I believe the Lord has given them to me.
IN John 13 you will find the text of what I am referring to. Jesus had taken a towel and a basin of water, and began to wash the feet of His disciples. He came to Peter, who said, "Thou shalt never wash my feet." Jesus replied and said, "What I do thou knowest not now: but thou shalt know hereafter." What was Jesus talking about? What was the hidden meaning of Him washing the feet of His disciples---His close followers? Why didn't He wash the feet of everybody? Were the feet of His disciples extra dirty? Why just His close followers? No, their feet were not extra dirty. He was not giving them a lesson in hygiene. Nothing like that.
JESUS was giving them a prophecy concerning the extremity of the dispensation that He was just about to usher in upon the earth---Grace.
There will come a special cleansing to the close followers of Jesus in the last days, which will make them "beautiful." Just the close followers will receive it.
THE KEY which permits us to use the scripture this way is in Daniel 2, where the King of Babylon had dreamed a dream about a great image made up of different metal ---gold, silver, brass, iron, and iron mixed with clay The image was a chronological preview of the four great Gentile Kingdoms which were to come into being on the earth. The feet and toes were to represent what we have on the earth today in the politics of the world.
RUNNING parallel to the world kingdom is a Kingdom which God is in the process of bringing to perfection. God's kingdom is the stone which was hewn out of the mountain, which smote the image in the feet, and obliterated it. "And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed...". Dan 2:44
THE body of Christ, the Church, has been in existence for a long time also, and has gone through various stages, like the image which the King of Babylon saw in his dream. We are now living in the time of the feet.
LISTEN to what John said about what he saw when he beheld it, in the Revelation of Jesus Christ. "And His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace." Rev 1:15 This tells us that in the time of the feet, there will be "Refined Judgment" or "Exact Judgment".
"JUDGMENT", here, as in most usages of the word in scripture, means putting things in their proper place, or putting proper value on things--knowing what should be where, and why.
PRESENT day believers, especially those who are walking as closely to the Lord as they know how, constitute the "feet" of the body of Christ in the same sense that the present day governments of the world constitute the "feet" of the Babylonian image.

JESUS allowed a prophecy to be enacted concerning the believer of the last days while in Bethany at a supper in His honor. Mary took a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment. See Jn 12:3 Why did she anoint the feet? Why not the head? Why not the hands and arms? Because the special anointing was to be poured out upon the saints of the last days. GOD HAS A SPECIAL WORK FOR US TO DO, AND IT WILL TAKE A SPECIAL ANOINTING TO GET THE JOB DONE.
THERE is a work to be completed, Brethren, and we need to fix our gaze in that direction INSTEAD OF SEEKING AN ESCAPE ROUTE, as we have been programmed to do for so many decades. If you can handle it, take a look at the many scriptures that talk about all things being put under His Feet. That includes His enemies.
GOD intends to use His Saints--"My sanctified ones--My mighty ones for Mine anger, even them that rejoice in My Highness." See Isa 13:3 They will be the Weapons of His Indignation". See vs 5.
"But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever---Until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High: and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom." See Dan 7:22,27
BECAUSE "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God, to the pulling down of strongholds", we cannot expect by any fleshly means to overpower the forces of evil as they are seen in the governmental, financial and religious institutions of the world today.
Legislation will not do it. Armies will not do it. Passing resolutions will not do it. Our only means of attack is the Spirit of Almighty God.


WHEN the Mighty Angel binds Satan, to cast him into the bottomless
pit, he will use the Chain of the SPIRIT OF GOD. If you can believe it, the Mighty Angel is the SAINTS OF THE MOST HIGH GOD, after they have received the Anointing typified by Mary in Bethany, when she anointed the feet of Jesus with the "VERY COSTLY OINTMENT."
IT WILL BE A VERY COSTLY ANOINTING, and few will be willing to pay the cost to be in that company.



The Church world needs to get their eyes off of some of the traditional teachings, and onto what the Word actually SAYS about what IS GOING TO
