Simeon’s Prophecy of Messiah

In the video below, actor Doug Whitley portrays Simeon the prophet, who approached Mary and Joseph when Jesus was presented to the Lord for consecration in the Jerusalem temple. Here is Simeon’s prophecy recorded in Luke 2:22-35:

22When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord 23(as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord”), 24and to offer a sacrifice in keeping with what is said in the Law of the Lord: “a pair of doves or two young pigeons.”c

25Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. 26It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.27Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, 28Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: 29“Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. 30For my eyes have seen your salvation, 31which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: 32a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.” 33The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him. 34Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

George Müller

In the video below, actor and preacher, Doug Whitley*, portrays George Müller (1805 -1898).

Before he received Jesus Christ who transformed his life, George Müller was a drunkard, a cheat and a most sinful man. God took him from the beer halls to the honored halls of men of great faith. Without a penny, he was able to build one of the largest and most successful childrens orphanages in Bristol, England.

During his life, he and his wife Susannah cared for over 10,024 orphans simply dependent upon God with childlike faith. – Luis Josephus
