Topic: Philippians Passage: Philippians 2:5–2:11
These verses today in Phil. 2:5-11 are a clear picture of the descent of the Lord Jesus Christ from the highest position in the universe down to his death on the cross, and then carry the mind of the reader up again to see Him seated once more on the throne of His glory before which every knee shall bow.
“I will go up…up…up,” said Satan, “You will be cast down to hell,” God answered. “I will go down to the cross,” said Jesus. “You will be given a name that is above every name,” said God our heavenly Father.
