The Testimony of Simeon, Part 4
“And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother, ‘Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), so that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed.’” Simeon reveals to us that God sent Jesus to divide. Everyone wants to hear the marvelous part of Simeon’s message, God’s gospel! His salvation is truly amazing! But there’s a response required of us.
