All the world acknowledges that Jesus is Lord at the conclusion of his millennium reign. Many are expecting that the phrase "every knee shall bow" refers to his return. If that were the case, there would be no need for a millennium reign. We will have arrived at the final hour, and the earth would be scheduled for destruction. His millennium reign is for the purpose of subduing the earth, and teaching us to do the same. When he returns, that will be the first order of business, and at the close of the millennium, that will be the last order of business. He is not returning for the purpose of taking control of the world, or pursuing wealth and status. His only goal is to teach us how to avoid being pummeled and destroyed by Satan.
In preparation for his appearance, many countries have been cajoled into installing a protective covering in the atmosphere over their countries, under the pretext that it will protect them from acid rain. They should know that some ethers are so repugnant that they will prevent the Lord from seeing the light from disciples in their country. Either they should remove the covering, or the Lord will need to draw disciples out of the country in order to protect them. When all the light is gone, they will witness the true effects of darkness.
Genuine oneness with God requires a degree of surrender. However, in the context of any relationship, you must remain true to who you are at your core. The problem is that the core of humanity has become so polluted that we believe ourselves to be someone other than who God created us to be. When our core has been cleansed, we will discover that we have become so united with God that the concept of surrender seems foreign. We will have become like God, in nature and in character.
