verse, and claim every Promise. The whole book is written to "My son..." For every
command you obey there is a Promise for success or reward. For example:

"My son, hear the Instruction of thy father, and forsake not the Law of thy
For They shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck."
- Prov. 2:1-20
"My son, if thou wilt receive My Words, and hide My Commandments with thee;
that thou incline thine ear unto Wisdom, and apply thine heart to Understanding;
if thou criest after Knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for Understanding; 4 If thou seekest
her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; 5 Then shalt thou understand
the fear of the LORD, and find the Knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD giveth Wisdom: out of His mouth cometh Knowledge
and Understanding. 7
He layeth up sound Wisdom for the righteous: He is a Buckler to them that walk uprightly.
keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of His saints. 9 Then shalt
thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. 10 When Wisdom entereth
into thine heart, and Knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; 11 Discretion shall preserve
thee, Understanding shall keep thee: 12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the
man that speaketh froward things; 16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger
which flattereth with her words; 17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth
the Covenant of her God. 18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of Life. 20 That thou mayest
walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous."

of days, and long life, and peace, shall They add to thee."

the Little Children to Come Unto Me
Or, Of Such is the Kingdom of Heaven
by Katie Stewart
Laodicean doctrine often directs young Christian parents to believe that small
children are not held accountable to God for their sins until they are quite old-
between the ages of eight and twelve. This lie of Satan can leave our most cherished
responsibilities, our own children, unguarded and open to the whims of the enemy.
The Scriptures reveal God's thoughts on the "nurture and admonition" of
very small children.
Included: advice given by the great servants of God,
Rev. Charles H. Spurgeon, and Rev. Charles G. Finney
(both from the Philadelphian Age Church ---New Window of the 17 & 1800's).
"Whereby are given unto us Exceeding Great And Precious Promises:
that by These ye might be partakers of the Divine Nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience Godliness;
And to Godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
For if these things be in you, and abound,
They make you that ye shall neither be barren nor
in the Knowledge of our LORD Jesus Christ."
2 Peter 1:4-8
