Jesus Christ Is Lord
"And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:11 NKJV
The Bible says that God highly exalted Jesus and given Him a name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
I love how Jesus exercised His Lordship while on earth; He gave instructions and issued commands: He said to the fig tree, "No man shall eat of you henceforth"; He said to the waves, "Peace, be still"; He said to Satan, "Get thee behind Me!" And He said to a four day old dead man, "Lazarus, come forth!" Never will you find Jesus pleading to get anything done.
But what do we do; we beg! We beg God, we beg the rain not to fall, we beg sickness to leave! When Jesus is Lord! That Jesus went to heaven doesn't mean He stopped being Lord; it was for our own good that He even went, because now we are seated with Him in heavenly places and we are His representatives here on earth! So stop begging! Let everything around you know that Jesus is still Lord and that you are His eyes, mouth, hands and feet here in this world! Give instructions and issue commands in faith! Hallelujah!
