Bowing Down

Remember Joseph's dreams about how his family would bow down to him? It ticked off his brothers, and they decided to get rid of him. But, sure enough, the day eventually arrived when they were bowing down to Pharaoh's second-in-command.

About 17 years later, Jacob is blessing his sons before his death. He says to Judah, "Your father's children shall bow down before you" (Genesis 49:8). Wait, wasn't that the same prophecy as had been made about Joseph?

At the name of Jesus
every knee shall bow,
in heaven,
and on the earth,
and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord
to the glory of God the Father.
