Bible Study: Bowing On One's Knee(s) And Caesar's AntiChrist Government.
This Article Uses The Bible To Explain How Important Bowing On Ones Knees Is And How Caesar's AntiChrist Government Will Attempt To Control (And Covet) This Action (Matthew 22:21; Luke 23:2; John 19:12-15).
The Bible Word "Knees" Is Found 30 Times In 30 Verses. Four Of Those Bible Verses Deal Directly With Praying (Talking) To God.
The First Time The Bible Mentions "Praying On Ones Knees" Is At 1 Kings 8:54. Let's Read That Verse Below:
1) 1Kings 8:54 And it was [so], that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven.
1 Kings 8:54 That It Is Appropriate To Pray On Ones Knees Especially During Worship, At Church And Before The Altar.
Let's Read Ezra 9:5
2) Ezra 9:5 And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God, Ezra 9:6 And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over [our] head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens. Ezra 9:7 Since the days of our fathers [have] we [been] in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, [and] our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as [it is] this day. Ezra 9:8 And now for a little space grace hath been [shewed] from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.
Ezra 9:9 For we [were] bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.
Ezra 9:10 And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments, Ezra 9:11 Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness. Ezra 9:12 Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave [it] for an inheritance to your children for ever.
Ezra 9:13 And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities [deserve], and hast given us [such] deliverance as this; Ezra 9:14 Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed [us], so that [there should be] no remnant nor escaping?
Ezra 9:15 O LORD God of Israel, thou [art] righteous: for we remain yet escaped, as [it is] this day: behold, we [are] before thee in our trespasses: for we cannot stand before thee because of this.
Ezra 9:5-15 Shows That It Is Wise To Fall On One's Knees (And Face) When Petitioning God For His Mercy, Help And/Or Grace.
Ezra 9:5-15 Prophetically Points To The Prayer That Rapture "Left Behind" Christians (The Remnant) Will Pray After The Great Tribulation (Wilderness (Space) Of Sin).
Let's Read Daniel 6:10
3) Daniel 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
Daniel Had Been Warned By The Government To Stop Praising, Praying And Worshipping God. This Is What The Dragon-Devil Posessed Antichrist Beast Will Order (Revelation 13:1-16). Daniel Was Always In The Habit Of Praying On His Knees Three Times A Day. Daniel Would Thank, Praise, Worship And Petition God On His Knees. The Apostle Paul Said That Those Who Came To God With Thanksgiving, Faith And Peace Would Be Heard, Helped And Blessed By God (Philippians 4:4-8). Like Daniel And Paul We Christians Must Humbly Come Before God On Our Knees With Worship, Praise, Thanksgiving, Petitions, Faith And Rejoiciings If We Expect God To Approve, Help, Save And Deliver Us (Hebrews 11:4-6).
Let's Read Ephesians 3:11
4) Ephesians 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: Ephesians 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. Ephesians 3:13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. Ephesians 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, Ephesians 3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:21 Unto him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
According To Ephesians 3:11-21 The Apostle Paul Would Bow (Fall) On His Knees To Thank God For The Free Access Christians Have To God's Throne Because Of Jesus Christ.
The Bible Also Informs Us That When A Person "Bows" On Just One Knee They Are Honoring The King (Or Ruling God). You Can View Those Scriptures At (Philippians 2:10; Romans 14:11; Matthew 27:29; Isaiah 45:23; Genesis 41:43).
