AT THE MENTION OF HIS NAME:
How extraordinary! Every knee shall bow. Think of it. That includes you and me, as well as Epiphanies, King Saul, Hitler, Nero, Elvis, the June Taylor Dancers, all believers, all nonbelievers…. well, it is suffice to say every human being that has ever walked the earth, past, present and future. Everyone will one day bow to the risen Christ, Messiah, Lord and King. Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Scientologist, Hara Christmas, Mormon, Atheist, rich, poor, powerful, weak, and the list goes on and on til it describes everyone.
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11)
DON’T WAIT TO BE CONDEMNED AT JUDGEMENT:
So what does that mean exactly? If someone is not willing to bow his or her heart to Jesus Christ while he or she is living, will they really want to bow their knee to Christ when that day comes when we all bow down? Probably not. Does that matter at all? No. Every knee will still bow regardless. And, of course, it makes perfect sense to start that worship while we are here on earth. To give ourselves to Christ completely and follow Him whether we go down roads of persecution, times of being hated, or simply living in a world where Christians are ridiculed. None of that stops our conviction, our witness, nor our love and devotion to Jesus Christ. If we bow now to Christ, while we are on this earth, we will bow before Him saved, but if we wait to bow before Him without salvation, we will be condemned at judgment. So I encourage you to surrender your will to Jesus and accept the fact that He died for our sins. And believe His Words…
I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 16:4)
IT’S A DELIBERATE DECISION TO FOLLOW CHRIST OUR LORD:
The deliberate decision to follow the Messiah, the Christ can be decided this very minute. Accept the gift of salvation, repent of your sins with a sincere heart and then start reading the Bible, and then get into a strong Bible teaching church. Enjoy the fellowship of fellow believers who are sincere in their faith. You will learn and grow and develop a lasting relationship with Jesus. You will hear the truth from the Holy Spirit. Then when you bow before Christ you will already know what it is to follow Him and love Him. There will be no condemnation.
