All Are To Be Righteous

All will confess righteousness:

Unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear, surely shall say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength. Isa. 45: 24.

This confesses the Lordship of Jesus.

Wherefore God also has highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name; 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. Phil 2: 9-11.

This is not compelled, but voluntary.

No man can say that Jesus is the Lord but by the Holy Ghost. 1 Cor. 12: 3.

Hence, the attractions of the cross will win the loving allegiance of all souls, at the last.

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12: 32.

This condition is now fulfilled, he has been crucified, the conclusion follows in due time.

Then comes the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God even the Father, when he shall have put down all rule and all authority, and power. For he must reign till he has put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he has put all things under his feet. But when he says all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. 1 Cor. 15: 24-28.
