Obama Bows

Obama Bowing or Finding a Quarter?

It was the bow seen around the world. Last week, President Obama greeted King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia with what appeared to be a bow, outraging conservatives who say the leader of the free world has no business bending over to foreigners. But the White House denies that the president bowed. A video of the greeting shows Obama significantly stooping before the 84-year-old monarch. The alleged bow left a bitter taste with many conservatives. “By bending over to show greater respect to Islam, the U.S. president belittled the power and independence of the United States,” the Washington Times said in an editorial. “Such an act is a traditional obeisance befitting a king’s subjects, not his peer.” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs addressed the issue Thursday when he denied that the president bowed. “I think he bent over with both hands to shake his hand,” Gibbs said before asking why the incident was being raised a week after it happened. When a reporter said people were still discussing the incident, Gibbs used his signature sarcasm to dismiss the claim. “I can only imagine it is of great cause and concern for many people struggling with the economy,” he said.

A lot of people are upset at what our President did, apparently bowing to a foreign King. It really is a big deal when one “King” bows to another. Even to God. So much so that He swore to Himself that one day EVERY knee would bow before Him.

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. 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. (Isa 45:22-23)

every-knee-will-bowIt is such a big deal that it was repeated elsewhere in the Bible:

For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. (Rom 14:11-12)

man-bowing-before-jesusand again:

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. (Php 2:10-11)

It really is a big deal when we bow before another. It not only signals respect, but when the other does not bow too, it signals submission to the one receiving the bow.

One day Jesus Christ will return to claim His inheritance. He will reign upon Mt Zion. He will claim all the Kings and nations of the earth. And at that time, EVERY knee will bow and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. This will please the Father and bring Him absolute GLORY.

That is why the Kings of the earth are warned in Psalms:

Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. (Psa 2:10-12)

One day soon, we all will bow. For many, it will be too late. But God swore that it would happen, and so IT WILL HAPPEN. You can take that to the bank!
