And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.Luke 2:25-26
 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.
Notice a common thread here? Zacharias and Elisabeth were:
 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.Luke 1:6
Joseph was a just man also:
 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.Matthew 1:19
Is your desire to be used of God? Then we need to be living for God!
Or we can just enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season (Hebrews 11:25).
