Here is a scripture that is familiar to everyone: That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow … and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord. Philippians 2:10-11. Usually that is looked at as eventually everyone in the world is going to bow the knee. Each person is in reality many people. When you get angry, you are an angry person. If there is jealousy, now you are another person. Lust – oops, now you are another person. All the different works of the flesh when they are manifested, you are that person. Well, Christ is going to come forth in you and take to task your own nature and every knee of all those people that you can be are going to bow! And every tongue – how many times have you spoken something and a minute later said, “I shouldn’t have said that”? Every tongue that comes out of your mouth is going confess that Jesus is the Lord. The whole expression of what you are is going to express His Lordship. Do you see? The hope of glory is Christ in you – not Christ out there somewhere! It is Him coming forth in you. When He begins to come forth in you and take to task these things which you are at times, it is going to be one nation against another nation, war against war, earthquakes. Oh, your earth nature is going to quake (Matthew 24:7-8)!
