#222 Seven Reasons Every Knee Will Bow
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number two-hundred-twenty-two of this series, Seven Reasons Every Knee Will Bow.
The one verse that troubles the world is Acts 4.12.
Ac 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
But, it must be understood that every belief system has an exclusive claim, not just Christianity. The name of Jesus Christ is as much a title as a name. The name Jesus means savior, and Christ means the Messiah. The one thing that is always emphasized in the New Testament is that in the name of Jesus Christ every knee will bow. Every knee will bow because God has exalted Christ above every name, and all judgment is in the hands of Jesus Christ.
Seven Reasons Every Knee Will Bow:
- Jesus Christ did not count equality with God a thing to be held to for advantage.
- Jesus Christ emptied Himself of the glory He had in heaven.
- Jesus Christ took the form of a servant in complete obedience to God.
- Jesus Christ was born in the likeness of a man.
- Jesus Christ humbled himself.
- Jesus Christ was obedient to the point of death upon the cross.
- Jesus Christ was highly exalted, and God bestowed on him a name that is above every name.
No other man mentioned in other belief systems has done these seven things, not Abraham, not Moses, not Muhammed, not Buddha, not Confucius, not Joseph Smith, not the Dalai Lama, or any other man. These seven things are the reason there is no other name under heaven by which you can be saved therefore, every knee will bow in the name of Jesus Christ. Today is a good day to come to know the name of Jesus Christ and have eternal life.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Php 2:5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, Php 2:6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, Php 2:7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. Php 2:8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Php 2:9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, Php 2:10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, Php 2:11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
