Children and Angels are a vital part of of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Jesus taught His disciples and us much regarding children and angels in His answer to His disciples question.
“In that hour the disciples came to Yeshua, saying, “Who then is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?” Yeshua called a little child to himself, and set him in the middle of them and said, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you turn and become as little children, you will in no way enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Whoever therefore humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. Whoever receives one such little child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him if a huge millstone were hung around his neck and that he were sunk in the depths of the sea.
Woe to the world because of occasions of stumbling! For it must be that the occasions come, but woe to that person through whom the occasion comes! If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life maimed or crippled, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into the eternal fire. If your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the Gehinnom of fire. See that you don’t despise one of these little ones, for I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. For the Son of Man came to save that which was lost.
What do you think? If a man has one hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine, go to the mountains, and seek that which has gone astray? If he finds it, most certainly I tell you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine which have not gone astray. E ven so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.”” Matthew 18:1-14 (Matthew 19:13-15).
Messiah Jesus took the little children in his arms and blessed them.
″They were bringing to him little children, that he should touch them, but the disciples rebuked those who were bringing them. But when Yeshua saw it, he was moved with indignation and said to them, “Allow the little children to come to me! Don’t forbid them, for God’s Kingdom belongs to such as these. Most certainly I tell you, whoever will not receive God’s Kingdom like a little child, he will in no way enter into it.”
He took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.” Mark 10:13-16 (Luke 18:15-16).
