A promise that some will love, and many will hate! But All that God promises shall come true!.

For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”  (Romans 14:11

There it is!  That is the promise of God for today.

Notice that it is EVERY knee, not just the Christian, but all men will be humbled to bow the knee to God.

But that knee will not be enough.  God promises that EVERY tongue shall confess, that is, agree with God about everything, even as their rebellious heart coils in resentment and rage.

Today, if you'll hear the wonderful good news of the gospel...
("Hear ye! Hear ye! Hear ye! All rebels, insurgents, dissidents, and protesters against the King! Hear the royal decree! A great day of reckoning is coming, a day of justice and vengeance. But now hear this, all inhabitants of the King’s realm! Amnesty is herewith published by the mercy of your Sovereign. A price has been paid. All debts may be forgiven. All rebellion absolved. All dishonor pardoned.")

...and joyfully bow your knee in submission to Christ the Savior, confessing Him as the Only Savior, the only One Messiah, then your rebellion and rage is removed, and your heart is moved to worship with exceeding joy!

God, our great Savior, will be worshipped! 

 Christ will be worshipped by those who love Him, and those who despise Him!
 Which way do you desire to worship The Only Wise King, forever and ever?  
With a clenched and angry fist, or with inexpressible and glorious joy?
