And these joyous words are from the mouth of Simeon, the man who was given the gift of seeing the face of Messiah in his lifetime. Luke 2: 28-32, "Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
I LOVE this artwork:
Do you see the map of the world in the background?
This passage means more and more to me. A man of God blessed with answered prayer of SEEING Messiah face to face in his lifetime! And though Simeon was a devout Jew, he knew Messiah, and he knew that Messiah was not just for the Jews, but born to be GOD'S SALVATION and a Light to the Gentiles! That's ME!
I do not know the artist! If you do, could you please E-mail Me?
Yes indeed, the Light of the World is JESUS!
