(The Presentation of the Lord)
Yes, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts.
But who will endure the day of his coming?
And who can stand when he appears? Mal_3:1-4
Simeon blessed them (Joseph and Mary) and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted – and you yourself a sword will pierce – so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” Lk_2:22-40
The question is, Is Jesus a stumbling block to you? Or is he an “elevator” who raises you above anything that appears to block your way to God? When we come face to face with God – which we all will do, will it be our moment of greatest embarrassment, or will it be our peak of highest glory?
Who WILL endure His coming?
Will it be me?
