Then he questioned with Him in many words; but He answered him nothing.  (Luke 23:9)


When Herod questioned Jesus, he revealed how humble He was. He refused to defend Himself, and He refrained from venting His wrath against the man who had senselessly killed John the Baptist, who was His cousin and probably one of His closest friends. Because of His humility and obedience to the Father, God gave Him a name that is above every name in heaven, earth, and under the earth [simple_tooltip content=’9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

10 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,

11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.’](Phil. 2:9-11)[/simple_tooltip]. There is no exemption for anyone or anything from coming under the Lordship of Jesus. He is Lord of ALL.

Jesus has not only been exalted above every “being” that has a name, but He is also highly exalted above any “thing” that has a name. If you can put a name on it, Jesus is above it. Sickness, poverty, depression, anger, your car, your job, your family—everything has to bow its knee to the name of Jesus.

The day is coming when every knee of men, women, children, angels, and demons will bow and confess that Jesus is Lord. Every being from all ages will ultimately bow and acknowledge the lordship of Jesus Christ. This is the extent of the power and authority of the name of Jesus.

If you have already bowed your knee to Him today, you will not only look forward to eternity with Him in heaven, but you can enjoy a wonderful life here on earth because you can walk in the power of His name. Whatever you are facing, it must bow to the name of Jesus!
