“Then little children were brought to Jesus, that He might put His hands on them and pray; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. But He said, Leave the children alone! Allow the little ones to come to Me, and do not forbid or restrain or hinder them, for of such [as these] is the kingdom of Heaven composed. He put His hands upon them, and then went on His way.” Matthew 19: 13-15.
“They kept bringing young children to Him that He might touch them, and the disciples were reproving them [for it]. But when Jesus saw [it], He was indignant and pained and said to them, Allow the children to come to Me — do not forbid or prevent or hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive and accept and welcome the kingdom of God like a little child [does] positively shall not enter it at all.” Mark 10:13-15.
“Now they were also bringing [even] babies to Him that He might touch them, and when the disciples noticed it, they reproved them.
But Jesus called them [the parents] to Him, saying, Allow the little children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for to such [as these] belongs the kingdom of God. Truly I say to you, whoever does not accept and receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a little child [does] shall not in any way enter it [at all].” Luke 18:15-17.
“I speak of little children coming to me three times in My Word. Yet mankind still does not understand how precious the little ones are to Me.
It is the children who are your hope and future. It is the children who will carry much in the days ahead, as they change, stretch, and grow into mature adults, to make decisions for themselves and others. (Psalm 127:3-5; Proverbs 17:6; Ecclesiastes 12:1; Matthew 18:2-6; Mark 9: 36- 37,10:15)
So if children are so important to Me, and hold so much value to the future of mankind, why is abortion still around and human trafficking at such a high rate?
As you can see from My Words, little children carry great favor with Me. Is it any surprise then that they are a direct target for the enemy?
That’s why it is so important to first share Me, so I AM in their heart. Then teach them about their authority in Me, next worship, and prayer.
The Holy Spirit is to minister in this, no tradition, culture, or religion. Keep it pure.
it’s the little ones you start with 2 and 3 year olds, next 4 and 5’s, then 6 and 7’s, then 8 and 9’s.
Start with the youngest and work up, for they are innocent and haven’t been corrupted by mankind’s ideas and set ways.
They haven’t been robbed of their creativity. They will follow freely without prejudging, and love unconditionally without shame.
They will fill your heart and MINE with GREAT JOY as they come forth to receive and minister with The HOLY SPIRIT and My Angels, without fear of man and his ways.
THE LITTLE ONES WILL LEAD THE WAY into My Kingdom and My Destiny for many, as signs, wonders, and miracles pour out of the innocent ones.
They will even lead many of the older children out of the ways of mankind, and into My ways, as they see and hear Me move through the little ones.
They will give up the ‘preset’ ideas and ways to do things, so that My FREEDOM and CREATIVITY can move in the older children too even more! (Isaiah 54:13; Psalm 32:8,34:11; Proverbs 3:5-6,20:11,22:6; Matthew 18:10,21:15-16; Mark 9:37; 3 John 1:41)
It’s not what you’ve known in the past. It’s WHAT and WHO I AM and what I will do in the days ahead to show even more WHO I AM.
For CHILDREN are the HOPE of the FUTURE.
Have I not said to train them up right in My ways? (Proverbs 22:6; John 14:26; James 3:1)
They are in many ways another example of “the last shall be first.” (Matthew 20:16) For when mankind has thought of teaching their children it has been the older ones first and the little one’s last.
It’s for all of these reasons, that children, especially the youngest ones should be as treasures unto you.
Treasures that you value greatly and cherish with your heart, teaching them to grow up worshiping and honoring Me, through singing, dancing, instrumental music, other forms of art, and more.”
All Scripture is AMPC
“Behold, children are a heritage from The LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. As arrows are in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth.

Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives and accepts and welcomes one little child like this for My sake and in My name receives and accepts and welcomes Me.
But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in and acknowledge and cleave to Me to stumble and sin [that is, who entices him or hinders him in right conduct or thought], it would be better (more expedient and profitable or advantageous) for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be sunk in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:2-6.
“He took a little child and put him in the center of their group; and taking him in [His] arms, He said to them, whoever in My name and for My sake accepts and receives and welcomes one such child also accepts and receives and welcomes Me; and whoever so receives Me receives not only Me but Him Who sent Me.” Mark 9:36-37.

Jesus replied to them, Yes; have you never read, Out of the mouths of babes and unweaned infants You have made (provided) perfect praise?” Matthew 21:15-16.
“I have no greater joy than this, to hear that my [spiritual] children are living their lives in the Truth.” 3 John 1:4.
“But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.” John 14:26.
“Not many [of you] should become teachers selfconstituted censors and reprovers of others), my brethren, for you know that we [teachers] will be judged by a higher standard and with greater severity [than other people; thus we assume the greater accountability and the more condemnation].” James 3:1.
