Every Knee Shall Bow

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. –Philippians 2:10–11
The Philippian Hymn concludes with this interesting passage. Some people have interpreted this passage to
mean that everyone will be saved in the end. Some have seen it as hyperbole. I believe that the best way to
interpret this verse is that, at the return of Jesus, every human being alive, no matter where they are, will be
forced to admit that Jesus is Lord. When Jesus returns, everyone will fall to their knees in awe. Christians will
fall in wonder and awe, and those who rejected Christ will realize their mistake. It will be too late to change
their mind, but they will realize who Jesus is.
