SIMEON

SIMEON
Luke 2, 25-35:

“ Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.”
The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him. Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

Simeon held the Lord of the Universe in His arms. He could now rest in peace because it would be the Lord who would now hold Simeon in the palm of His Mighty Hand. God The Father had fulfilled the Messianic promise of the ages to His children that the Messiah of Israel, the Christ of His Church, the SON of GOD would come to earth in human form, to walk among them…and He did.

The word Abba is a beautiful Hebrew word. It is the word we know as Daddy. This is the word God has chosen for describing Himself personally to you and I in HIS Scriptures. WE are His children and He is our Daddy…if you know HIM as LORD.

We walk through this life holding onto our Daddy’s hand. Then when He takes us through the front door into His house, our house; He will lift us up into His arms and give us a personal tour of the very room He has taken our entire lives to prepare for us to live in.

YOU MEN WITH CHILDREN who are reading this need to know your children are a blessing from the Lord. It is your responsibility to raise up your children to know their Creator and to know the Scriptures that tell the story about the Son of God.

Like John the Baptist, who came to prepare the way for the Lord. You also have been given the honor and the responsibility to prepare the way to your child’s heart so they will be able to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

GOD CALLS YOU to begin praying for their Salvation from the moment they have life in the womb. Then in LOVE, live your life before them and your wife and your God so there is no question in their minds about whom you belong to and whom you have chosen to serve.

Then maybe God in HIS Mercy to you will bless you by giving you the desire of your heart, the desire of my heart… that each one of our children and grandchildren will become a Child of the KING.

GODS PROMISES to YOU !

You can claim the promises of God ONLY if you belong to HIS SON.
Then the Holy Spirit comes to live within you to guide you on this journey called Life here on earth.

You then will be able to say with all the Redeemed, “Baruch HaBah B’Shem Adonai”….Blessed is HE who comes in the name of the Lord.

This sentence of Praise and Recognition will finally come from the lips of Jews in Jerusalem when JESUS Comes Back the 2nd Time. Only 1/3 of the Nation of Israel in a time of great sorrow will call upon “Him whom they have pierced? And The Messiah, The Christ,The Son of God will answer them and SAVE them.

But Today, Jesus also wait’s to hear those same words, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” from your lips as well. Because in the truest sense the Lords resting place is not Jerusalem, it is within your heart that He wishes to reside. He will bring with Him, Healing, Restoration, Grace, and Mercy for your Soul and Mind.

If you just listen and be still you can hear Him say….there will be healing in this house…in your house when I come in TO LIVE WITHIN YOU. Please open your heart to ME. I bring you peace for troubled times.

Why would God shed HIS blood so pure and undefiled for such a one as me? The answer is simple, if you turn to HIM and take His Hand you are His Chosen & Elect precious child.

The next clear, dark, starry night, when you look up to the heavens…remind yourself of the Psalmists question to God in Psalm 8:4 …”What is man that YOU are mindful of him?”

God answers that for us in Psalm 103: 13-14…”Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.”

His compassion for you was poured out through His Sons blood on the Cross. Today, if you do not know Him you are one of the Walking Dead. Your future is to die twice not once. Open your mind and examine the Truth of the Word of God. Ask Him to make the Truth clear to you. Claim His Promise in Proverbs 8:17…”I love those who love ME; and those who diligently seek ME will find ME.”

Believe that HE is and believe in what He says.

The words in the Bible of His prophesied coming have all been fulfilled. Therefore the prophecies of His 2nd Coming will all be fulfilled as well. The words of the Bible are the Promises of God….and God does not lie !

JESUS WILL COME AGAIN SOON BECAUSE OF:
1. Gods Promise to Himself.
2. Gods Promise to destroy satan.
3. Gods Promise to His creation.
4. Gods Promise to save a believing Remnant.
5. Gods Promises to the Nation of Israel.
6. GODS PROMISES TO YOU !

Every day that you live is a day of Mercy and God’s Grace to you…but even for God there is a time when His patience towards you will end. He will stop waiting for you. On that day HE will honor YOUR decision to live forever without Him in Hell.
