QUESTION: When will “every eye see Him” (Revelation 1:7) and every knee bow (Philippians 2:10)? RESPONSE: This will not occur at the Rapture, because at that time Christ does not come to earth but catches up His espoused bride to meet Him in the air. Only the redeemed who are taken to heaven will see Him: “Looking for that blessed hope...the glorious appearing of...Jesus Christ...” (Ti 2:13); “When he shall appear, we shall be like him” (1 Jn 3:2), etc. It will be at the Second Coming, when He returns to earth in power and judgment that “every eye shall see him...and all kindreds of the earth shall wail...” (Rv 1:7). Then “every knee should bow...and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord” (Phil 2:10,11), etc.
