Simeon then prophesied, “Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against (Luke 2: 33, KJV).”
Sometimes God allows us to peer into his majesty and awesomeness, and this is when we should be alert and see what God has in store for us. Just as God promised Simeon, he would not die until he had beheld the Son of God. Once he held God the Son in his arms, the prophecy fulfilled, and Simeon knew the world would never be the same. God gave Simeon a glimpse of His heart because God loved Simeon.
Now, this prophecy did not come true right away, but it took years, but the promise Messiah birth fulfilled. The radiant light coming from the small infant was a heavenly glow that Simeon observed, radiating from the Holy Spirit of Jesus. This beautiful gift was to be shared with the entire human race, and one day we would all bow down in the future to the most wonderful precious gift of love God could give humanity.
