In my flesh, I was given the diagnosis that I no longer have cartilage, this absence does not make walking easier for me. In fact, it almost makes it impossible for me to run, kneel, get down on the floor and back up again. It’s not that I can’t do any of these things, I just do them all at my own risk. Living without cartilage is extremely painful and some people have given into the pain and quit doing. I refuse. With that, though I no longer kneel any longer to pray, I’m thankful because I chose to kneel when I was able. And there are times when I have found myself in the presence of Holiness that I am compelled to kneel and the thought of pain is not there, so I do so. I ease my way down and I ease my way up as though I’m being helped up by two able body people that I cannot see. My kneeling has always been and will always be a choice. I’m thankful that I choose to kneel rather than being made to kneel the knee.
There will come a time when every human in the universe whether saved by grace or unsaved. Whether in spirit or in mortality, mankind will acknowledge JESUS very name by the bending, the kneeling of the knee. Mankind will bow in submission regardless of where mankind will be, in heaven, on earth or in hell. Most people who operate in the spirit of pride rebel against submission to authority. The very thought of having to yield, resign or surrender to the power, will or authority of another is impossible. So, what makes it possible for people who think this way to submit to a JESUS that they cannot see, hear, touch or smell?
The FATHER affirmed a solemn declaration, with an appeal regarding HIS SON for the truth of what is affirmed. Every word that comes from the mouth of JESUS is righteous and will never return empty. Mankind will bow, and the tongue of man will affirm the declaration that JESUS is the LORD. And because the FATHER could make this affirmation and solemn declaration to know one greater than HIMself, HE swore by HIMself.
Philippians 2:10, Is. 45:23
