EVERY KNEE SHALL
What most people do not realize is that
some day they will look to the Lord and realize his ultimate power.
They will realize that they should have bowed before that point.
KJV Isaiah 45:20-23
20. Assemble yourselves
and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they
have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray
unto a god that cannot save.
21. Tell ye, and bring
them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this
from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord?
and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is
none beside me.
22. Look unto me, and be
ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
23. I have sworn by myself,
the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return,
that unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
KJV Romans 14:11-12
11. For it is written,
As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue
shall confess to God.

us shall give account of himself to God.
KJV Philippians 2:4-11
4. Look not every man on
his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
5. Let this mind be in
you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6. Who, being in the form
of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7. But made himself of
no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in
the likeness of men:
8. And being found in fashion
as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the
death of the cross.
9. Wherefore God also hath
highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10. That at the name of
Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth,
and things under the earth;
11. And that every tongue should confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven
above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the
5. Thou shalt not bow down
thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God,
visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and
fourth generation of them that hate me;
KJV Joshua 23:7-8
7. That ye come not among these
nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name
of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow
yourselves unto them:

Lord your God, as ye have done unto this day.

COMMON SEPERATIONS BETWEEN GOD AND MAN

complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great
swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
17. But, beloved, remember
ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus
18. How that they told
you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their
own ungodly lusts.

themselves, sensual, having not the spirit.
THOSE WHO WORSHIP THE WORLD AND CANNOT
KJV 2 Corinthians 6:14-18
14. Be ye not unequally
yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness
with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living
God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will
be their God, and they shall be my people.

HEAR THE GOSPEL

BELEVE IN JESUS CHRIST

world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
REPENT OF YOUR SINS

them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

PUT ON CHRIST IN BAPTISM
KJV Romans 6:1-6

Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4. Therefore we are buried
with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from
the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness
5. For if we have been
planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the
likeness of his resurrection:
6. Knowing this, that our old man is
crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth
we should not serve sin.
