As all sport coaches do to organize and instruct their teams, Philippe Auguste ~ King of France during one of the surely non-Godly crusades, assembled all of his noble knights, told them to take a knee and encouraged them to be strong in battle.
On his banquet table he placed his regal crown bearing the inscription "To the most worthy", and pledged it as a prize to be given to the bravest fighter.
After the army went to battle and returned victorious, they encircled the table where the crown sat.
Then one of the most brown-nose nobles stepped forward, lifted the crown and placed it on the king’s head saying, "Thou, O king, art the most worthy."
And exactly as ALL of our world's "brave" leaders, the king's feet never, ever touched the battlefield!
The Bible justly says:
"Every knee will bow to the name of Jesus ~ everyone in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. And everyone will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord".
Note the words "every knee will bow".
In 2011, the population reference bureau estimated that 106 billion people had been born since the dawn of the human race.
Every single one of them will bow to the name of Jesus. Try to imagine all those people – over 14 times the world’s population today ~ kneeling before Christ Yeshua and saying, "Thou, O king, art most worthy."
"And in that moment Jesus will assume His ordained position "far above all rule and authority and power and dominion ~ not only in this age but also in the one to come".
Then He, the author and finisher of it all, will close the book on this life and open the book on the next.
That’s the beginning of the unending story that we ~ the redeemed of the Lord, wait for and long for.
......cause it just cannot keep going as it has and is.
