Will everyone one day bow before Jesus?

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
            Yes, one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus as Lord.
            Many will be doing what they had already been doing here on earth--bowing and confessing Jesus as Lord.  It will be their honor and privilege to do so in heaven.  "JESUS IS LORD!" they will cry joyfully.
            Others will be doing this for the first time.  On earth they rejected or ignored God, putting off their faith for another day or outright refusing to make anyone else god in their life except themselves.
            Bowing and confessing before Jesus will be humiliating and maybe horrifying, however they will know it’s true.   "Jesus IS Lord…" they will groan.
            Both groups will surrender at that moment—one group willingly, the other group shamefully.
