Every Knee Shall bow

Posted by appolus on April 30, 2009

Yes, even in the very depths of our trials, we can call upon that name, the name of Jesus, the name that is above every name. The name by which everything must bow. Darkness must flee at that name, mourning must flee in the presence of Jesus. Hopelessness becomes hope in the presence of the Lord. Bitterness becomes forgiveness, strife becomes peace, captivity becomes freedom

 

EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW

 

There may be many Christians alone in this world or feeling isolated. Yet, there is coming a day when all we, as brothers and sisters, as children of the living God will gather around that throne. There will be millions, perhaps tens of millions from every tribe and every tongue on earth. As far as the eye can see they will stretch out and with one voice they will sing of the glories of their God. And if we could shut our eyes and imagine the wheat fields of Kansas that stretch for endless miles in every direction, then one can begin to imagine that day when we gather around the throne, swaying as the wind of the Holy Spirit moves through us, individual yet as one. One Body, enraptured in the unadulterated presence of the Living God and continually praising Him. The trials and tribulations of this world at an end. Every tear wiped away. No more sin, no more death, no more separation, only the glorious light that emanates from the throne itself.

Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Rom 8:36 As it is written, “For Your sake we are killed all the day long. We are counted as sheep of slaughter.”
Rom 8:37 But in all these things we more than conquer through Him who loved us.
Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Yes, even in the very depths of our trials, we can call upon that name, the name of Jesus, the name that is above every name. The name by which everything must bow. Darkness must flee at that name, mourning must flee in the presence of Jesus. Hopelessness becomes hope in the presence of the Lord. Bitterness becomes forgiveness, strife becomes peace, captivity becomes freedom…..2Co 3:17 And the Lord is that Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Freedom to praise Him. And all of this because of Calvary. The way has been made. The gulf has been spanned. Our vision is ultimatly an eternal vision. This life is but a vapor and it is vanishing even as we speak. The grass of the field is here today and tomorrow it is gone. Let us lift up our heads and see where our help comes from, the maker of all the heavens and of the earth. JESUS, we bow to thee and to thee we yield.
