And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
Note 1 at Lu 2:26: Revelation knowledge is distinctly different than knowledge acquired by learning. Simeon had not been taught by man that he would see the Lord's Christ, but it was simply made known to him by God. The Holy Ghost is the one who imparts the knowledge (Lu 2:26; Joh 14:26, and 16:12-15); it is always truth (1Jo 2:27), pure (Jas 3:17), and available to all believers (1Co 2:9-16 and Col 3:10).
