Daniel 12:4 (NKJV) 4 “But you, Daniel, ishut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall jrun to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”1 2 Chronicles 16:9 (NKJV) 9 hFor the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this iyou have done foolishly; therefore from now on jyou shall have wars.” 2 Proverbs 4:20–23 (NKJV) 20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of slife.3 Luke 2:15–35 (NKJV) The Shepherds Visit Jesus 15 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 17 Now when they had seen Him, they made 6widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 pBut Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and qpraising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them. Christ is Circumcised 21 rAnd when eight days were completed 7for the circumcision of the Child, His name was called sJesus, the name given by the angel tbefore He was conceived in the womb. 22 Now when uthe days of her purification according to the law of Moses were completed, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord 23 v(as it is written in the law of the Lord, w“Every male who opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”), 24 and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the law of the Lord, x“A pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.” Simeon’s Prophecy 25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, ywaiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not zsee death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. 27 So he came aby the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, 28 he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said: 29 “Lord, bnow You are letting Your servant depart in peace, According to Your word; 30 For my eyes chave seen Your salvation 31 Which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, 32 dA light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.” 33 8And Joseph and His mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Him. 34 Then Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is destined for the efall and rising of many in Israel, and for fa sign which will be spoken against 35 (yes, ga sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”4 John 6:63 (NKJV) 63 eIt is the Spirit who gives life; the fflesh profits nothing. The gwords that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. 5 Isaiah 53:1 (NKJV) 53 Who ahas believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?6 Isaiah 53:4–5 (NKJV) 4 Surely eHe has borne our 7griefs And carried our 8sorrows; Yet we 9esteemed Him stricken, 1Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was fwounded 2for our transgressions, He was 3bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His gstripes 4we are healed.7
