To bow down or bend the knee and fall down expresses the act of worshipping God

Phillipians 2 v 10:

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.

Ephesians 3 v 14:

Paul’s Prayer for the Ephesians

14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Revelation 19 v 10:

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Revelation 22 v 8-9:

8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Matthew 4 v 8:

8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow just as Paul bowed his knees to the Father and John mistakenly bows his knees to the angel.

This can only mean that Jesus will be worshipped just as the Father is worshipped.

Jesus was worshipped during his lifetime by those who bowed the knee and fell down before him:

Matthew 8:2 – “And, behold, there came a leper and WORSHIPPED him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.”

Matthew 9:18 – “…behold, there came a certain ruler (of the synagogue),and WORSHIPPED him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and  lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.”

Matthew 14:33 – “Then they that were in the ship came and WORSHIPPED him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.”

Matthew 15:25 – “Then came she and WORSHIPPED him, saying, Lord, help me.”

Matthew 20:20 – “Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, WORSHIPPING him, and desiring a certain thing of him.”

Matthew 28:9 – “And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and WORSHIPPED him.”

Matthew 28:17- “And when they (the apostles) saw him, they WORSHIPPED him: but some doubted.”

Mark 5:6-7 – the man with the legion of devils – “But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and WORSHIPPED him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I do to with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God?”

Luke 24:52 – After His resurrection and at the Ascension into heaven, it is written of the apostles – “And they WORSHIPPED him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.”

John 9:38 – the man born blind – “And he said, Lord, I believe. And he WORSHIPPED him.”

    If falling were to mean believing in the Son’s divinity, the Bible’s verses contradict each other:
    (i) Satan is not sure whether Jesus is the Son or not. How could Satan himself miss what the ordinary lowly demons allegedly know?

    (ii) In a standard of functional arguments, Jesus failed utterly to prove the functional Sonship since he was unable to change the stones to bread.

    (iii) There is something that Jesus *can’t * do, that is to change the stones to bread.

    (iv) Believing in another divine Son contradicts the Bible’s verse that says the demons believe in the One God, or otherwise the Bible is true to underline the demons believe in the One God, hence the demons just don’t believe that the Son of God is divine.

    Hypocrisy of the Trinitarians is really amasing.
    Acts 16
    29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 And brought them out, and said, Lords, what must I do to be saved?
    Rev 3:9
    Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
