The exaltation of Christ

The exaltation of Christ

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, 
and given him a name which is above every name:
 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
 of things in heaven, and things in earth, 
and things under the earth; 
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, 
to the glory of God the Father.” 
Philippians 2:9-11

Suggested Further Reading: 
John 17:1-5

Look at him! Can your imagination picture him? 
Behold his transcendent glory! 
The majesty of kings is swallowed up; 
the pomp of empires dissolves like the white mist of the morning before the sun; the brightness of assembled armies is eclipsed. 

He in himself is brighter than the sun, more terrible than armies with banners. 
See him! See him! Oh! Hide your heads, you monarchs;
 put away your gaudy pageantry, 
you lords of this poor narrow earth! 
His kingdom knows no bounds;
 without a limit his vast empire stretches out itself. 

Above him all is his; beneath him many a step are angels, 
and they are his; and they cast their crowns before his feet. 
With them stand his elect and ransomed, 
and their crowns too are his. 

And here upon this lower earth stand his saints, 
and they are his, and they adore him; and under the earth, 
among the infernals, where devils growl their malice,
even there is trembling and adoration; and where lost spirits, 
with wailing and gnashing of teeth for ever lament their being,
 even there, there is the acknowledgement of his Godhead,
 even though the confession helps to make the fire of their torments. 

In heaven, in earth, in hell, all knees bend before him, 
and every tongue confesses that he is God.
 If not now, yet in the time that is to come this shall be carried out, that every creature of God’s making shall acknowledge his Son to be “God over all, blessed for ever. Amen.”

 Oh! My soul anticipates that blessed day, 
when this whole earth shall bend its knee before its God willingly! I do believe there is a happy era coming, 
when there shall not be one knee unbent before my Lord and Master.

 For meditation:

 Those who refuse to acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ in this life (2 John 7) will be forced to acknowledge him in the next—but it will be too late to do them any good. 
Those who trust in him now will enjoy praising him for ever.

Sermon no. 101
2 November (1856)

 The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God,
without acquiring any MONETARY REWARD. 
God gave me the salvation for "FREE", 
so I share the gospel of his word the same way, 
Blessings to all of You, rejoice in the sublime 
and infallible Word of God.
If you are NOT a believer in Jesus Christ, 
you can be accepted into his kingdom. 
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted. 

 Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 
 who died for me to make me free of sin, 
I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, 
I confess that He is the son of God. 
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, 
not only to live on this earth, 
 but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.”
