God Is Not Like Nebuchadnezzar

Nebuchadnezzar forced people to bow down to his image with the threat of being thrown into the fiery furnace (Daniel 3:15). God does not threaten people that, if they will not bow their knee to Him, they will be thrown into a fiery furnace (hell).

The apostle Paul is one who would not bow his knee in the name of Jesus. How did God get Paul to bow his knee? Not with a threat, but one glimpse of His Savior was all it took. From then on Paul was acclaiming Him as Lord to the glory of God the Father. This was not a forced acclamation, but an overwhelming desire of Paul. When God finishes His work, “every knee shall bow” (Philippians 2:10-11). They will have an overwhelming desire to bow their knee. What a day of rejoicing that will be!

Commencement – Continuation – Consummation

The Scriptures reveal a commencement with all out of God; a continuation with God over all; and a consummation with God All in all.

Out of Him and through Him and for Him is all (Romans 11:36).

God and Father of all, Who is over all and through all and in all (Ephesians 4:6).

Then comes the consummation … when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that God may be All in all (I Corinthians 15:24-28).

This truth revolutionizes our conception of God. It throws light on the meaning and purpose of this trouble-filled life. It makes a new book out of the Bible.
