JOHN 5:22...Furthermore, the Father judges no one, but has assigned all judgment to the Son, 23 so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.

REVELATION 5:11 Then I looked, and I heard the voices of many angels and living creatures and elders encircling the throne, and their number was myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands. 12 In a loud voice they said:
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and riches
and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and blessing!”
13 And I heard (((every creature))) in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying:
“To Him who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb,
be praise and honor and glory and power
forever and ever!”
14 And the four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.
(((Every created thing worships Him who sits on the throne and the (((((((Lamb))))))). If the Lamb, Jesus Christ, were a creature, He would be one of the creatures joining in this worship chorus. Instead, this passage clearly teaches Jesus is the object of the worship chorus Jesus the lamb is Divine not a creation.)))

As soon as the Magi laid eyes on the infant Christ, “they bowed down and worshiped Him” (Matthew 2:11).

“So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!’” (Matthew 21:9; John 12:13) The word hosanna is a plea for salvation and an expression of adoration. This word used by the crowd is definitely a form of worship.

Just after Jesus amazed the disciples by walking on water, “those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God’” (Matthew 14:33). 

Some of the women (Matthew 28:8-9; Mark 16:1; Luke 24:10) were on their way to tell the disciples of the resurrection when Jesus met them on their way. When they realized it was He, they “came to him, (((clasped his feet))) and worshiped him” (Matthew 28:9).

“Thomas said to him, ‘My Lord and my God!’” (John 20:28). 

In none of these instances do we see Jesus telling those worshiping Him to stop, as did mere men and even angels who were being worshiped wrongly by others (Acts 10:25–26; Revelation 19:9–10)

Question: "What does it mean to kiss the son (Psalm 2:12)?"
In its original context, the phrase kiss the son refers to an act of submission or obedience.

In 1 Samuel 10:1 Samuel anoints Saul as king: “Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on Saul’s head and kissed him, saying, ‘Has not the LORD anointed you leader over his inheritance?’” In 1 Kings 19:18 God tells Elijah, “Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and all whose mouths have not (((kissed him))).” In both verses, kissing shows allegiance or submission.

Those who do not kiss or honor the Son of God stand condemned by God (John 3:18).

For to which of the angels did He ever say, 'You are My Son, Today I have begotten You'? And again, 'I will be a Father to Him And He shall be a Son to Me'?" (Hebrews 1:5). 

And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, 'And let all the angels of God worship Him'" (Hebrews 1:6). 

Christ thus stands in dramatic contrast to Peter, who refused worship (Acts 10:25-26), and even to angels, who similarly did not allow themselves to be so revered (Revelation 19:10; 22:8-9).

Paul explicitly states that Christ is so exalted that, in his name “(((every knee should bow)))” and every tongue confess that he is Lord (Philippians 2:10-11). The reference to bowing the knee is an obvious allusion to worship (cf. Isaiah 45:23; Romans 11:4).

1 KINGS 19:18... Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel--all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him."

ROMANS 11:4... And what was God's answer to him? "I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal."

LUKE 9:35... A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; (((listen to him.")))

MATHEW 28:18... And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

PHILIPPIANS 2:9... For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,

1 Peter 3:22
who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, after angels and authorities and powers had been subjected to Him.

Philippians 2:9-11... Therefore God has highly exalted him and (((bestowed on him the name that is above every name))), so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
