Come To Jesus

"SUFFER little children to come unto me, 

and forbid them not; 

for of such is the kingdom of


Luke 18:10.

Children, these words are what our Lord said

when he was upon earth. At that time he placed

his hands upon little children's heads, and 

blessed them. Will you not endeavor to please

 him for the kindness and affection he bestowed

 upon children like yourselves? Remember that

 one way to please him, is to obey your parents.

 Second, to keep the commandments of God.

Third, to be kind to each other. Fourth, to be

 meek and humble like Jesus, and reverence his

 holy name. Remember, all good children he calls

 his lambs. The Lord tells you to "honor thy 

father and thy mother," and keep holy the 

Sabbath day. Now is the acceptable time.

This very day, not to-morrow. "Boast not thyself

of to-morrow, for thou knowest not what a

day may bring forth." Children who keep the

sayings of Jesus, and the commandments of God,

will be blessed for the time they are permitted to

remain here below, and after God's stated time,

then will come to pass the sayings that are

 written in Isaiah  11:6-9.  

"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and

the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the

calf, and the young lion and the fatling together;

and a little child shall lead them. And the cow

and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie

down together; and the lion shall eat straw like

the ox, and the sucking child shall play on the 

hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put 

his hand on the cockatrice's den. They shall not

 hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the

 earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord,

 as the waters cover the sea."

There is comfort for you, children, for the Lord

hath spoken it, and what he hath said, you may

 rest assured he will perform. Remember, he 

loves the child's prayer, and he will not reject 

your offerings.
