Psalm 110:1 The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” 2 The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies!

In the Old Testament people did not like finding out their gods were not gods when God thwarted them. This is what Jesus does.
