Philippians 2:9-10 – 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,
Philippians 2:9-10 NASB
Jesus is the Son of God and as such, he is highly exalted. God has highly exalted his name to be above every other name. But, the Bible doesn’t stop there with that description. Just in case you weren’t sure what it meant to be exalted above every name, it goes on to explain that every knee will bow at the name of Jesus. Every single one. There won’t be a single person who does not acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of all.
The question becomes, will we acknowledge that fact before or after we’ve died. God is going to reveal himself and his sovereignty to us. But if we wait to acknowledge that truth until after we have already died, them we have missed our opportunity to accept the saving grace that Jesus Christ provided on our behalf. The truth is, we will acknowledge him as Lord. The only question is will it be in time to still receive his grace and his mercy or will it being during the time of judgment?
