For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-10
- In today’s world we find so many people arguing and even fighting over religious rights. They tend to argue for their own point of view and will kill others in the name of _____ (you fill in the blanks.) We also find people who are working so hard at closing religion all together. The demand it be revoked from our lives and that we accept the idea of there being no life after death.
It is fascinating then when we come to this verse in the bible. We are told that in the end everyone will confess to Jesus Christ and claim he is Lord. Does that mean everyone will go heaven? No. But they will realize in the end who Jesus truly is.
We will all be accounted for in the end times for what we know and were taught. And many, who we did not even suspect, will be sitting in heaven. However, accepting him is not only for the afterlife. He is here today to help you through all things. He sent his Holy Spirit to be here to comfort all people through their times, for we do live in a sinful world. But in the end every knew will bow and every tongue will confess that he is Lord. Accept it now while you can still reserve your place in heaven, or accept it then when it is too late. God did not make hard; the choice is up to you.
