No matter what is happening in the world right now, how people are persecuted for their faith, how people follow money or fame over God, how people live selfish lives at the expense of others, how people mock us for our faith, there is one truth to hold onto. One day at the name of Jesus EVERY knee will bow. And OK sometimes that doesn’t make particular situations any easier but it does provide a sure and certain hope for the future.
Not only that though, that truth should also should be a driver for us to evangelise. Do we want anyone to not enjoy our Father’s love because we were silent? We must be bold in telling others about Jesus so that more bow down now and confess that he is God, so that all may have the opportunity to be saved.
- Philippians 2:10 – that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth
- Psalm 95:6 – Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker
- Romans 14:11 – It is written: “As surely as I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow before Me; every tongue will confess to God.”
- Revelation 5:13 – And I heard every creature in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be praise and honour and glory and power forever and ever.”
You hung on a cross and were mocked, people all around oblivious that you were Christ Jesus who will one day return victorious, how things will change on that day when you come again, instead of their mocking all will be dropping to their knees in reverence, no longer indifferent to King Jesus, no longer will they persecute your disciples, banish the Bible, torture your people, for this is a new season, a season where all will have reason to fall on their knees as every eye looks up and sees the Saviour of the world return in victory, I believe that all will hail you Jesus and I will hail my Saviour, Hallelujah Christ returning to claim his throne, he’s coming back for us and as we proclaim his name, King Jesus, every knee will bow, every tongue confess that he is God, creator of the universe, the Lord who came and lived on earth, the Lamb who was slain for us, returning victorious, all praise and glory to his name, all power to the one who reigns supreme in earth and heaven, we worship and adore your name, we bow low, we raise our voices high, we cry out in adoration, we sing in adulation as all the nations in unison will proclaim the amazing glory of your name.
