C'mon people, you can read right.
The quote EnochWasRight shared definetly shows insight in the matter:
1. Jesus hands over the kingdom to God the Father.
2. God put everything under Jesus' feet.
3. The Son himself will be made subject to God.
One can't put himself subject to himself won't he, that would be like .. schizophrenic?
I know this is difficult to understand, that's why many different scriptures need to be taken into consideration.
Yes, as long as Jesus (the second person of the Trinity) exists, he will always be subject to God.
When God becomes "all in all", there will no longer be a need for Jesus to be the Mediator between man and God or the Holy Spirit between man and God.
This is why the Bible tells us that when the eternal kingdom (New Jerusalem) is established with everyone in it, that there will be one God with one
If you read Revelation, chapters 20, 21 &22, you'll notice that Jesus Christ is only mentioned during the Millennial period (1,000 year reign on
earth) and then when the new heaven (New Jerusalem) comes down from heaven, that Jesus is now referred to as "the Lamb", not Jesus. The name Jesus
isn't mentioned again until after John's vision of heaven is over and Jesus tells him what the vision meant. Jesus said that he had sent "mine angel"
to deliver his message. That angel told John that Jesus was "I am Alpha and Omega".
In Revelation 20, everyone will stand before God with the "book of life" and they will be judged based on what's written in that book. Revelation
21:27 refers to the book of life as the "Lamb's book of life". Jesus was/is the Word and the book of life. We know according to John 1:1-4, that
from the very beginning that the Word was with God and the Word WAS God. Without the Word, there is no life.
Regardless of whether people believe that Jesus is God or not, Jesus was given a name above all other names and given authority over heaven and earth
so that every knee should bow to him, whether they be humans, angels or demons.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
We know that all of the angels of God will worship the Son...
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by
himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall
be to me a Son?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
Hebrews 1:2 above also shows us that it was BY Jesus that he "made the worlds".
John 1:3 and John 1:10 tells us these things again...
John 1:3 and 1:10
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
Jesus is the Lamb. God and the Lamb share the throne of heaven in Revelation 20, 21 & 22. These chapters also tell us that we will worship "him",
not "them". They are one. They will have one name.
29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
