KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 19:14 (ASV). “But Jesus said, Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for to such belongeth the kingdom of heaven.”
AS the Lord taught the people, some of the adults brought their children to Jesus so He would bless them. The disciples of Jesus attempted to stop them. The Lord quickly asked them not to hinder the little ones from coming to him. He added that the kingdom of heaven belongs to those who are like children.
The above statement means if you could have the heart of a little child, you would have access into the kingdom of heaven. What makes children candidates for HEAVEN?
1.Children believe without asking questions. According to the scriptures, man by wisdom cannot know God. 1 Corinth 1:21. The man who believes, God’s word, without asking questions is highly rated before God.
2. As children accepts their parents, the man who will have access into the kingdom, must, repent of his or her sins and believe on Jesus as his Lord and savour.
3. Children would not go to the one they do not know. The man or woman who would have access into heaven would not accept any other way, but the way of holiness.
4.Children keep no offence. People who are candidates of heaven, do not keep hurts and offences in their hearts. They quickly forgive, even before the offender requests for forgiveness.
5.Children never love to leave the presence of their parents. The child of God who would be a candidate of heaven is an addict of the presence of God. He is addicted to seeking God’s face in prayer and the word, as well as joining other believers to worship and listen to the Lord speak through His servants.
6 Every little child believes his father and mother are the best and are ready to tell his friends about the achievement of his parents. The man for heaven tells a lot about the saving power of the lord. He witnesses to God’s ability to save men
IF you would repent and be as a little child, then you have a big access to heaven.
Heavenly Father I accept every revelation about yourself and our Lord Jesus. I repent from every sinful way, and surrender my life to the Lordship of Jesus.
Matthew 11:25. “At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.”
Matthew 18:3 (KJV) “And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”
