The Kingdom belongs to such as These

by Erik Momsen

In January this year I heard Jesus say, "Let the children comes to me," I always thought He meant that they had to go to Him but His Spirit was talking through me.  Jesus was really saying, "Erik, let the the children come to Me though you.  Erik, you need to let the children come to you."  "Lord, but I don't do children's ministry ..."

In my lifetime, England will be a Muslim country.  There is no doubt about that.  Christian families produce 1,6 children while Muslim families have over 8 children.  They value the children.  Europe is falling to Islam even quicker. Spain only has 1,1 child per family.  ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-3X5hIFXYU )

CHILDREN ARE THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM
(We printed this sermon earlier in the year)

"The passage in Malachi 4:6 is often understood to mean that God will first turn the hearts of fathers, they will become Godly and then the hearts of the children will be changed.  I see no problem with, this but it is not my overwhelming experience.  I have seen more children touched by God, and then having a life changing effect on parents.  The statistics on conversion rates in the world bears testimony to this fact.

We do not have to read Malachi 4:6 as a 'fathers first' thing.  I don't believe the passage says this. God will turn hearts of father and children".

BROTHERHOOD MISSIONS, INDIA

To the Catholic priest, Anton Cruz, two street children said after giving him a "rubbish heap baby"; "You are a father, you take the baby to the church and give it milk."  That baby died in his arms and God spoke.
