The Consolation

 

The Consolation of Israel
has come

salvation for
everyone

the Glory of
Your people

pure Light of
revelation.

A laid down life sees Jesus.

“And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. So he came by 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, he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said: ‘Lord now You are letting your servant depart in peace according to Your word, for my eyes have seen Your salvation which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, a light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, and the Glory of Your people Israel. ‘” Luke 2:25,27,28,29,40,31,32 NKJV
