Why did Jesus say one day: But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:14 KJV
What is it that we can learn from children so that we experience the kingdom of heaven as they daily experience. For the kingdom of heaven can’t be theirs unless they have a daily experience of heaven.
Here was a great revelation concerning something hidden in children and when we tap into this we will taste heaven here on earth. This is one of the most forsaken verses and yet it promises heaven that many of us need daily. They are children and they have no done any good deeds but they are tasting heaven on earth. Whether they be in a rich or poor family, whether they are in war zone or peaceful suburbs. They taste heavens daily.
We as parents run up and down and we work very hard trying to make heaven on earth for children but Jesus says we need to run to them and observe their ways and experience for they still have in them the heaven perfume for they come from heaven. This means we rub it off from them as we teach them. We rob them of the heaven which they entered the earth holding in their hands. They did not come empty handed, they came holding heavens in their hands. Heaven is theirs.
I did not pay attention enough to the children. I had the honor of babysitting my two sons and daughter in their first three months. I finished a year with others. I babysitted my other son until he passed on in my hands after a few months. The reason is that I have always looked in their eyes as they looked back. As we connected with eyes I would find so much peace. Their eyes were coded with hidden messages of great peace. But I stiĺl think I did not pay enough attention. The kingdom of heaven is theirs.
If the kingdom of heaven is theirs it means we are missing great treasures hidden in our children. It looks like Jesus was saying even if the bible was not there but if we learn the ways of the children we will discover that they came to earth holding the kingdom of heaven in their hands. We are missing the greatest opportunity to investigate heavens right in our homes. Each Bundle of Joy that is sent to our families is a message from the heavens but we have not paid enough attention. Jesus said the Kingdom of God is theirs.
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:14 KJV
Jesus gave us a hidden sermon here and we did not pay attention: FOR SUCH IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. We were given a mission to go study them FOR SUCH, it means after I have emulated their ways I am a candidate of the Kingdom of God. If I can understand the hidden treasures in children, I stand a chance to have heaven on earth.
We have 131 million births each year we have 55 million deaths each year. We have 250 births each minute we have 105 deaths each minute. People are born Twice the number of deaths. There are more births than deaths. This means more who come holding the kingdom of heavens in their hands than those who leave this earth. God wants to reach to us to pay attention to the children that enters this world. For the Kingdom of heaven is theirs. They come to us smelling heavens and we remove that perfume and replace it with our perfume of mortality and sickness.
Before we examine the children and what Jesus knows about them I would like to clear a few things: If you say: my child is a little devil! I want you to know that this child came to earth as a little Angel and he or she has learned to be a little devil here on earth. We have a responsibility to keep our children as the angels they are. This we do by not exposing them in all the devilish diet we consume by means of media and otherwise. Some children keep the heaven scent until they are seven years some until five years some until only two years because we have exposed them differently to that which steals away the heavens in them. The kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Have you ever noticed that children do not worry about what they eat tomorrow?
Therefore I say unto you, Be not anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than the food, and the body than the raiment?
Matthew 6:25 ASV
They keep this commandment without having read the bible. There is a certain power they hold inside them that makes them not to worry.
Do you know that children will not let the sun to go down in anger?
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Ephesians 4:26 ASV
What power do they hold to do that. For theirs is the Kingdom of God. We need to unlock that which they did mot need to read the bible to do it. Dis they come to earth with a bible in their hearts?
Have you noticed that children always have joy?
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
Philippians 4:4 KJV
How do they keep this commandment even before they are taken to church? It looks like children must take us to their church not the other way round. For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Have you noticed that children have pure thoughts?
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8 KJV
This is what they had until they saw you and your spouse fighting in front of them. For theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
The children play in the morning. They play the whole day at school. They play after school. They play at home in the evening. The parents sit the whole day at work but when they come home they are tired. Why? Because the children understand The Power of Now. Parents live in the Past and in the Future most of the time. How did we lose this great Power which we came with as children on this earth? For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Children are more powerful than us. They live in the Now which is in the Kingdom. They have gifted minds which are able to live in the Now. We live in the Past with unforgiveness and hatred. We live in future with worry and that is why we are always tired. They grow fast with strong immune system. They forgive quick they do not worry about tomorrow. For the Kingdom of Now is theirs. Now is called Present and they understand their present. They came to this earth holding their Present in their hand. We snatched it from their hand and we taught them the Past and the Future. Theirs is the Kingdom of Now.
What are you doing NOW? How about keeping the NOW without ceasing? What if NOW without ceasing is ETERNITY? What if the Kingdom of Heaven is the Eternal Now? And children came holding it in their hands until we taught them how we hold our Past and Future? For if we honor the NOW the Past and the Future we honor us. I submit to you that our children have the power to grasp the NOW with all their might. Winning and getting medals and scoring goals is about grasping the NOW with all your might without the Past and the Future getting in your way. For theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
