The child jesus refers to is the h.g. that has to be born in us sinners thats y he said that which is born of the spirit is spirit. his word is the good seed that will be sown in our hearts initiating a birth of christ in us that good seed is the word which is spirit thus his children are spirits the h.g plural that are gonna be as the stars of heaven.he is able to reproduce very god in humanity. only god the son can reproduce god simply b/c everything has to multiply after its kind.thus he is the father of the h.g. when isaiah saw him he calls christ everlasting father simply b/c he is the father of the h.g. b/c his seed is the living word to whom the word came it made them gods plural gbu

Suffer the little ones, they carry the cross with humbleness and soon forget the pains and rebuke and move on, while adults are so full of questions, "why God...... "

In order to be converted we must first repent Repentance means throwing ourselves on the mercy seat of God and confessing our sins before Jesus and asking Him to forgive us of all our sins Then can we be converted this is not of our own doing We can not change or turn back to God on our own God s Word through Jesus must prick our hearts and convict us in such a way that we no longer want to wallow and live in sin The only way we can become holy and godly is by God shedding the Holy Ghost on us He then teaches us admonishes us and comforts our hearts and spread God s love in our hearts And that s when we can become lowly and meek as good little children Repentance leads to conversion which leads to humbling ourselves as little children so we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven

My attention is drawn to the word "kingdom" rather than heaven itself. The kingdom of a government is the domain or realm that is subject to - and benefits from its supremacy. Therefore, one could be "delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom (of heaven)[Col.1:13]" while still living in this life. Isn't Jesus saying, "To be truly great, one must be converted in attitude, from this world's manner, to relying on Him, like a little child relies on its parents. The adult ego tends to hinder true greatness.
