Universal and Unrivaled Glory

by | Jul 19, 2011 | Purpose & Identity

All kings will bow down to him and all nations will serve him. —Psalm 72:11

Having lived this life of humility and obedience, Jesus’ glory is restored and enhanced in heaven. Yet God gave Him more: He gave Him universal glory, that every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus is Lord. There is coming a day in which all will be in perfect agreement, when everybody will be united.

At present we have places and people united in name only—the United Nations, the United States of America. But there is a day coming when every congressman … every United States senator … every Muslim … every Jew … every atheist … every journalist … every television commentator … is going to be in perfect agreement: every tongue will confess the same thing.

They are going to have to get down on their knees, all of them, because Philippians 2:10 says, “Every knee should bow.” All men and women will be on their knees; every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. It is not a question of if we are going to do it; it is a question of when. But if we sacrifice our opinions for the opinion we will all have then, it brings Christ glory now.

There is coming a day when every angel will make way for the King; every human being will make way for Him, as will every demon. Then we will join the everlasting song and crown Him Lord of all. The same God who once said, “I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to another” (Isa. 42:8), now says, “You bow to My Son and confess that He is Lord to My glory.”

God calls you today to bow to Jesus and worship Him and, in so doing, give God the glory. In that day it will not be the preservation of your name or mine, but Jesus will have all the glory.
