God went silent for over 400 years from the last old testament book of Malachi until the birth of Christ. During this time the enemy was gathering his legion of demons and false gods into ROME to hinder the work of Christ. They are still at it today headquartered in the same place and no one notices??? At the time men had no idea they were living in a land mass that looked like a shoe / boot. Why did the devil choose the shoe? He knew it was a boot he flies above the earth.
It has something with his inability to understand a dark sentence that God hides from him.
Genesis 3:15 KJV
(15) And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
He lost Egypt which is the top of the head of Africa with its lips kissing Madagascar and the large lake like an eye. Obviously, if he is in the boot his head can no longer be crushed?!?
