9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Revelation 19:16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
One day Heaven, there will be a coronation ceremony. The Lamb of God, will become the King. He will be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He will return to earth and subdue His enemies. They will try to fight against Him, but it will not be much of a fight. Satan will be locked up for a thousand years and Jesus will reign. At the end of the thousand years, he will be released and try to fight the King again, only to be defeated and thrown in the Lake of Fire. At that time, judgment will come on those who rejected the King. During this time, all will bow their knee to Him and confess that Jesus alone is Lord and King. For He alone is worthy!
What hope it can give those of us who have accepted Jesus, when we are down, to think through the end times. That person who is tormenting you, He will bow down and confess Jesus. That evil dictator, who is destroying innocent lives, will bow down and confess Jesus. Every single person, will to Jesus, because Jesus alone is worthy of it.
We all have a choice to make. Do we willingly bow and confess Jesus now or wait to the end. Those who wait, will not like where they go. I believe if we willingly do it now, we are saved. We are acknowledging who Jesus is. He is the Son of God, who died for my sins and one day will be crowned the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We are confessing Him as Lord, as the master of our lives. We are giving Him control of what we do, say, and think. That is not to say, we will not sin at all. We will. But is saying He has the right to work in those areas and use them for His glory. To confess means to acknowledge our need of Him. We cannot do this life, nor the life to come without Him. We need His sacrifice. We need His forgiveness. We need His cleansing. We need His righteousness. We need Him. I need Him. No one else can meet these needs. No one can forgive me of all of my sins and make me righteous. No one else can save me from Hell, but Jesus alone. For He alone is worthy!
If you have not done so already, choose this day to bow to Him and confess Him as Lord. Ask Him to save you. Ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you. Trust in Him to be Lord of your life and accept His rule. For He alone is worthy!
Oh great and awesome Lord, You alone are worthy. I willingly bow my knee to You. I willingly confess You as Lord. No one else is like You. No one else can save me, but You alone. Thank you for all that You have done for me. You are so amazing! Amen.
