The Lord spoke to me today about Him using children to speak His Word. 




When I read the following scripture I was once again reminded that when the Lord was ushered into Jerusalem, it was the foal of a donkey that brought Him in, with the mother donkey staying close by. 


Matt 21:1-11

Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me.  3 And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."  4 All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: 5 "Tell the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you, Lowly, and sitting on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.'"


So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. 8 And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna to the Son of David! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!'  Hosanna in the highest!"  10 And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, "Who is this?"  11 So the multitudes said, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee."


This is not only a parable that the Lord will be using a generation of youth to usher in His kingdom, but they will be the sons and daughters of a prophetic fathers and intercessors who carry the burden of the Lord.  They will not be separated, but move together in the kingdom.


Gen 49:14-15  NKJV

"Issachar is a strong donkey, Lying down between two burdens;  He saw that rest was good, And that the land was pleasant; He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden,  And became a band of slaves.


1 Chron 12:32

...the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do...


Isa 8:18

Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel From the Lord of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion.


Ps 71:17-18

O God, You have taught me from my youth; And to this day I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.





Early this morning I was doing a scripture study on the following passage and I was amazed at the message hidden in the Hebrew meaning.


Matt 21:15-16  NKJV

But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were indignant and said to Him, "Do You hear what these are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes. Have you never read, 'Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise'?"


The word "perfected" is used in 13 NT verses.  One of the verses uses the word by saying that the worlds were framed by the Word of God.  Other uses are to repair, adjust, fit, frame, men, perfectly join together, prepare and restore.


And then I noticed that "praise" in this particular scripture meant a story, a saying, a proverb!!!  The Lord loves to speak His living parables and stories through children.  What a beautiful, beautiful scripture confirmation.



katartizo (kat-ar-tid'-zo); from NT:2596 and a derivative of NT:739; to complete thoroughly, i.e. repair (literally or figuratively) or adjust:

KJV - fit, frame, mend, (make) perfect (-ly join together), prepare, restore.

Matthew 4:21

And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.


Matthew 21:16

16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?


Mark 1:19

And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.


Luke 6:40

The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.


Romans 9:22

What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:


1 Corinthians 1:10

Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.


2 Corinthians 13:11

Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.


Galatians 6:1

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.


1 Thessalonians 3:10

Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?


Hebrews 10:5

Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:


Hebrews 11:3

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.


Hebrews 13:21

Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.


1 Peter 5:10

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.


CONFIRMATION:  Today is Mother's Day and my daughter in law mentioned that today in Church every time our little 1 year old granddaughter would worship, she would raise her head and look up and sing.  She just loves to sing in church when everyone is singing too.  And then when she stopped singing, she would tilt her head back to normal.  Truly this is a timely confirmation to this scripture today!


Matt 21:16  NKJV

And said to Him, "Do You hear what these are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes. Have you never read, 'Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise'?"


CONFIRMATION:  Today after recording the above in my recorder, a QW MEMBER sent me the following email.


"I will never leave you..."

Last night I told my 5 year that I was going to take a bath... I find that unless I let her know where I am and what I am doing she goes looking for me everywhere... So, to alleviate an stress on her  and on me when she out looking for me then I can't find her... I just let her know from the beginning where I am.. (smile) 


So, I go into the bathroom and start running the bath water... and I hear from Keely (my 5 year old), "Mommy I want to help you."  Me, "No, Keely that 's okay...I can do it...finish watching your movie." Keely, "No, mommy I can help you...let me wash your hair..." Me, "No, Keely it's okay mommy just wants to soak in the tub for a while... I'll be okay.. you go play."   But, she doesn't leave...I could not talk her in anyway into leaving me alone and letting me just soak and relax in the tub... (smile). So, after a short bit of Keely asking to help me do everything... I finally just said, "Okay, that's enough... time to get out..."  I reached for the towel to get out of the tub and Keely said, "Mommy can I dry your feet."  I just laughed and knew that I wasn't gonna be able to talk her out of this...So, I simply said, "Sure!"  I then started noticing that my chest was hurting... burning... that's odd I thought... it feels like heart burn.... 


This morning, the same thing happened...almost a complete duplicate from the bath scene last night...  Now before last night she had never done this... She will usually say, "Okay, mommy...I'll be right here."


But this time...seeing the duplication...I thought there must be something to this... So, I said, "Okay God what are you trying to tell me?"  I was then quickened to how Jesus promises he will never leave us... even when we try so hard to run away from him He still is so faithful to be right by our side...I was then quickened to how God's heart hurts for his people...How when he tries so hard to reach pull us to him and we reject him or push him away, His heart hurts...for He desires that none should parish...


Through Keely offering to dry my feet: I am quickened to how Jesus washed the feet of his disciples...and how we being like Jesus we should make ourselves servants to all... humbly reaching down to help our fellow brothers and sisters.... 


John 13:7-10 (NIV)

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”  Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”  “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”  Jesus  answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.”


Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”


Song of Solomon 8:6 (NIV)

Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.
