Just shut up please, I have seen first-hand experience how you ladies treated Uber/Bolt drivers. There was a day a guy had to drag a lady down from his Car when the disrespect was too much to handle.

I am confused, drag down a paying customer. I am a man, but this is madness!!

THE JOYFUL MYSTERIES

IV. THE PRESENTATION OF THE INFANT JESUS IN THE TEMPLE


Prophesied Malachi 3:1-3 Suddenly there will come to the temple the LORD whom you seek, and the messenger of the covenant whom you desire. Yes, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts. But who will endure the day of his coming? … He will purify the sons of Levi … that they may offer due sacrifice to the LORD.


Prefigured 1 Samuel 1:24-25,28 Once he was weaned, she brought him up with her … and presented him at the temple of the LORD in Shiloh. After the boy’s father had sacrificed the young bull, Hannah, his mother approached Eli and said, … “Now I, in turn, give him to the LORD; as long as he lives, he shall be dedicated to the LORD.”



Luke 2:21

Luke 2:22-24
2) When the days were completed for their purificaton according to the law of Moses, they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, just as it is written in the law of the Lord, … and to offer the sacrifice.


Luke 2:25-26
3) [Simeon] was righteous and devout, awaiting the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Messiah of the Lord.


Luke 2:27-28
4) [Simeon] came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to perform the custom of the law in regard to him, he took him into his arms and blessed God.


Luke 2:29-32
5) “Now, Master, you may let your servant go in peace, according to your word, for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you prepared in sight of all the peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel.”


Luke 2:33-34
6) The child’s father and mother were amazed at what was said about him; and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel.”


Luke 2:34-35
7) “[He is] 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.”


Luke 2:36-38
cool There was also a prophetess, Anna. …. She never left the temple, but worshiped night and day with fasting and prayer. … She gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were awaiting the redemption of Jerusalem.


Luke 2:39
9) When they had fulfilled all the prescriptions of the law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their own town of Nazareth.


Luke 2:40

When a Sword Pierces Your Soul


Article by

Staff writer, desiringGod.org

Simeon had a painful message for Mary. But she discovered that for those who trust God, he uses soul-piercing events to unleash more grace, salvation, and joy into the world than we could have ever imagined.

It was mid-morning when Joseph and Mary and their infant son entered Jerusalem’s Fountain Gate at the city’s southern tip. They passed the pool of Siloam where the disabled and diseased hoped for a healing stir of the water. They walked northwest up the street that led to the Temple Mount. It bustled with the rattle and hum of morning chores and commerce.

It had been forty days since Mary had birthed her boy. Under the Jewish law, this had made her unclean and required a purification sacrifice on the fortieth day. She and Joseph had made the nearly ten-mile trek from Bethlehem the previous day, camping with a few others a half-mile or so outside the holy city.

Outside the temple complex Joseph bartered with merchants for two turtledoves. The inflated prices angered him. Profiting from purification! He also felt shame that he couldn’t afford a lamb. Doves were a poor man’s sacrifice. He was barely eking out a living in Bethlehem, taking whatever odd job he could find.

Mary watched Joseph return with the cloth bag, its erratic movements divulging an inner turmoil. Sorrow flashed through her. She always recoiled at the sacrifices: the struggle, the fear, the violence, the blood — innocent life killed because of another’s guilt. These two frightened creatures would soon die to make her clean. She held Jesus tighter.

They entered the complex and made their way across the noisy Court of the Gentiles toward the Eastern Gate of the inner wall. Hundreds were praying, men with covered and women with uncovered heads.

Suddenly, in front of them, an old man appeared. “Let me see the child!” He sounded almost distressed. Joseph stepped up and shielded his wife. The man looked up at Joseph first confused and then smiled. Taking Joseph’s prohibiting hand in both of his, he patted it and said, “I’m sorry, my son. You must forgive old Simeon. Please don’t be afraid. Your child is in no danger from me. I’ve just been waiting for him so long.”

Mary knew immediately that he knew. The old man looked to her and gently asked, “May I see your son?” Mary smiled and nodded. Joseph stepped back. The man moved near and looked in awe at the child. Barely audible he muttered, “The salvation of Israel. The glory of Israel.”

Without taking his eyes off Jesus, he asked, “May I hold him?” Mary felt no fear as she placed Jesus into Simeon’s arms. He gently rocked him and mouthed silent praise with tears streaming. Mary glanced at Joseph who was wordless too.

Then the old man broke into a half sobbing prayer, “Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel (Luke 2:29–32).

Mary again felt the shivering wonder that her baby, this one she nursed and changed and bathed and cradled, was “Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).

Simeon, still gazing adoringly at the child, said, “Years ago the Lord promised me that death would not come until I had seen his Christ. Today, I opened my eyes while praying and there you were — an infant! I had never thought you would be an infant!” Looking to Joseph with laughing eyes, he said, “One never thinks of the Christ as an infant!”

With a kiss of blessing Simeon softly placed Jesus back in his mother’s arms. He dried his eyes with a sleeve and turned to Joseph, laying a hand on his shoulder, and said, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed, so that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed” (Luke 2:34–35).

Then turning back to Mary, he gently cupped her head with his hands and said tearfully, “And a sword will pierce through your own soul also” (Luke 2:35). He kissed her forehead and with one last look at the child, he moved away slowly through the crowd.

Turn away from rosary and the worship of the fallen angel called the queen of heaven. Mary the one that God used to come to the earth bodily is not the queen of God's heaven. There is no queen in heaven. The title of Mary as the mother of Jesus Christ ended on Earth. What the Roman Catholic is doing in the name of honor is a massive deception of Satan to drag billions to hell. Are you not aware that God's glory can't be shared with mortals. Repent, repent, repent.. Only Jesus Christ is the way. Don't say you were not informed!!!

The scripture asked that we test the spirits.

If the fruits of "showing devotion to the Saints (people who were friends of Jesus during their exceptional and exemplary life on earth)", chief among whom is the Mother of Jesus; bears good fruits like: Faith in God, Love of God, abhorrence of sin, including others like: (denial of self, aspiration to heavenly virtues, avoidance of sin, love of Neighbor); then I will do it.

We were instructed to Love God with all our might, heart, soul and strength; and also to Love our neighbor as ourself.

A kingdom divided against itself will fall!

Praying in the holy ghost is one of the gifts of the holy spirit. Praying rosary is not one of them.
You are quite right. I also know someone who speaks in tongues while praying her rosary. I have also read of others. The Holy Spirit gives His gifts to who He pleases.

Eveyboy can pray in tongues, Send me a pm let me put you through, I was once a catholic like you, but from our conversation, you don't understand the meaning of the introduction of the rosary you have been praying, you have the holy spirit inside of you, but you don't know how to use the gift that is in you. I will gladly help you learn how to speak in tongues so that you can pray for upto 3hours non stop. I bet you can't pray upto 1hour with your normal language, rosary is 20mins give or take.

Also join charismatic, they will help brush your prayer life up. Dont be praying only rosary. Rosary will not help you in spiritual warfare. You need to be speaking in tongues so that demons will runaway when you are blasting in prayers.

Think about it ma.

I appreciate your enthusiasm on speaking in tongues for 3hours non-stop. A full rosary should take about 1 hour 40 mins to pray. Some take longer. I know of some people who pray their full rosary about 3-7 times daily. This is not a contest about devotions, but I just wanted to point out that the rosary can be said multiple times in a 24 hour period non-stop.

If you want (profound) peace in your life, I would seriously recommend that you pray the rosary.

It has been said that you will have to choose between praying the rosary and living a life of sin; it is true. This has been my very experience. You can't pray the rosary and live a life of sin, the two are incompatible.

The rosary is the life of Jesus on a string, It is living and breathing scripture. It is truly a weapon against worldliness and vice.

Its masterstroke is its deceptive simplicity. It is easy to overlook, get talked down and over.

Its promises are cast in stone. My mother during her life was was an ardent rosary advocate. Towards her demise she was very ill and in a coma. When the priest was sent for and he arrived, my mother came out of coma and received the Eucharist and then went back into coma; and then slept in the Lord a few minutes later.

A lot of people like to put God in a box, but a box does not define God. God is God and His mercies endures forever.

Like the OP has said, please pray your FULL rosary everyday. Pray all 4 groups of the mysteries Daily.

Dedicate time to meditate on the events in the life of Jesus (mysteries) in between each decade, apply the lessons to your own life.

ALL my prayer requests that I have tabled before God while praying the rosary has been answered. God The Father honors His Daughter, God the Holy Spirit honors His Spouse and God the Son honors His Mother.

Glory be the the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end.

I invested in GoatmeatHQ and will still invest regardless of whether they defaulted in referral bonus or not. Someone wants to call Agritechs out on social media because of default in referral bonus. Well, it's your choice. I just feel this Agritechs probably have looked at their finances and felt it was better to default on referral bonus than ROI. And the default in referral started during or after the pandemic. Should they now sacrifice ROI because someone wants their referral bonus. Well, to each his own.

In the interest of full declaration, GoatMeatHQ has paid me referral bonuses twice in the last 6 months. They are not perfect, but I will still root for them any day.

Hi, in as much as i love dealing with REQUID, the 3% liquidation fees charged on the capital is ridiculous, companies in general usually task the interest a % for liquidating before maturity and not the capital.

I recently experienced this and it really didnt go down well with me, its so absurd. At the end of the day i literally had no interest for an investment that was 1 month and 11days due to the fact that i had to liquidate.

I have pend them my thought and wish every investors with them will also raise their voice against this act.


Regards.







I thought this was standard terms and conditions of Requid. They are not Santa Claus and it is a business that was setup to be profitable.

Their rice products are sold in Shoprite (Abuja) and Next Cash'nCarry.

You do not need to go far to get a BSF.

If you know any farm that grows egusi, then wait as they harvest and wash their egusi seeds.

When the egusi is still wet and still giving out the strong fresh egusi smell, BSF will swarm around the area.

You can catch as much as you want - freely.

You have a point also @14% that's an effective interest of 30% per annum, which is solid

Even Tbills won't give you that not to talk of bank

Headline inflation Match 2020: 12.26%
Naira devaluation April 2020: 15.27%
Total loss of Naira value: 27.53%

Any investment not delivering above this on an annual basis is losing you money. Keeping money in the bank is not even an option. It’s best to covert to USD to invest or hedge your loses.
