every knee

1 Kings 19:18 NKJV
18 Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.”

Submission affects your daily walk with God and you need to ask yourself, who is your knee (submission) bowing to?

As you can see from 1 Kings 19:18

that God ‘prevented’ seven thousand in Israel from submitting unto

King Ahab and Jezebel’s ‘government’ rule during that time, and Elijah, a prophet of God didn’t know that God reserved seven thousand. Yes, those of us close to God don’t know all of whom and what God has preserved.

1 Kings 18:22 NKJV
22 Then Elijah said to the people, “I alone am left a prophet of the Lord; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.

Again, Eljah thought he was alone. Are you a believer who dwells in the secret place and feel like you’re the only one praying out there? You can trust God and know that there are many others out there praying too. If there weren’t, you can read in the Bible about the generation before Noah’s flood (Genesis 6:5), and Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19). This entire world would already be destroyed otherwise. Thank God people are believing and praying.

And since we’re here, it means there are believers who are praying or who have not submitted their knee unto the darkness of this world. If you’re reading this and you’re not one of those believers/prayers set aside by God, you need to thank God for those that are. Then you need to ask yourself why are you not praying? Who’s knee are you bowing down to? Where does your submission lie? Because you can easily be one of those set aside by God.

Eljah had power because he did not submit unto the demonic entity called Baal like four hundred and fifty other prophets did. Baal ruled the government at that time. I don’t know what dark demonic entity is ruling our government today, but when there are more homelessness, more drug addicts, more murders, more abortion, more evil than good, it’s an evil darkness that’s currently ruling our government.
I can assure you that if you do not have power in your walk during this darkness, maybe your knee is bowing to Baal or some other entity and you don’t know it? Or maybe you know it. I have news for you that do know, your knee must submit unto Jesus! Hallelujah!

But if you don’t know, maybe you voted for someone who is lying to you and supporting something like abortion. God hate’s abortion. That’s murdering innocent blood and through that deception, you support this evil entity. But there’s good news for you , God is merciful and as long as you ask for forgiveness, you will be delivered/saved.

But here's something to know, even if you kept your knee bowed to anything other than God, your knee will eventually bow down to God:

Isaiah 45:23 NKJV
23 I have sworn by Myself;
The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness,
And shall not return,
That to Me every knee shall bow,
Every tongue shall take an oath.

Romans 14:11 NKJV
11 For it is written:
“As I live, says the Lord,
Every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall confess to God.”

Philippians 2:10 NKJV
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,

Why is it important to place your knee directly before God and not through other entities, such as governments, principalities, trust in other people, etc? You are at war and
you are responsible for holding back the power of darkness. How do I know this? Because you were given the name of Jesus and by that name, ‘every knew should bow’. Keyword – SHOULD! When they’re not, that means you’re not using your authority.

Let’s identify those areas of darkness that you have the authority over as a believer in Christ who has asked God to forgive his or herself.

Ephesians 6:12-13 NKJV
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [a]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

When you don’t bow your knee to others, and you bow your knee to Jesus, you have authority direct from the name of Jesus and can overcome governments, principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, and against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places. Yes, you have the authority to do this in Jesus’ name.

You become a part of God’s army and you can affect the outcome of this world’s governments and powers. This world’s powers are darkness and you are the light in God’s army.

Read Philippians 2:10 again and pay attention.

Philippians 2:10 NKJV
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,

at the name of Jesus’: when you are bowed before Jesus, you have the authority to say His name and have the authority to place ‘those in heaven, ‘those on earth’, and ‘those under the earth’ to ‘bow’ before His name. Those things must submit to God. So once you say it out loud, calling out those entities and telling them to bow before God, ‘STAND’. Place a smile on your face and wait for God to move. Because that darkness must submit.

Realize this, God is training you for warfare. Start learning. Start using His Name. The Holy Spirit will teach you and it starts with you placing your knee before God and submitting unto Jesus.

Once you do that, you come into your authority of His name and the darkness must submit unto you when you use His name Jesus!

I’m standing now. Will you tell darkness to bow itself to Jesus? Once you do, we’ll be standing together. Take these steps and let’s stand together!
