Off course not!!
Mordecai Ham did not want to be a preacher.
He did not want to live in that kind of poverty Life forced
him to change his plans In 1935 a 16 year old boy responded
to an alter call, Ham was disappointed only a young lad! You
may not know Mordecai Ham but you will know the lad…Billy
Billy Graham has preached the

Nearly 3 million have responded
to the invitation he offers at the end of his sermons.
We must try and reach the
children before the age of 7... WHY?
Because by age 3 a child has already developed their
own personality Moses is a classic example, his mother had a very
small window of opportunity to invest in him and pass on her Spiritual
DNA by the time the boy was weaned he was brought up by Pharoah's
daughter. In Egyptian theology and false god worship but his mother
had done a good job and as a young man Moses knew who he was - and
Israelite and he killed the Egyptian that was fighting with one
of his 'brothers'.
By age 5 their brain is the size of an adult brain
and they have learned 85% of what they will learn in their entire
lives. And the foundation of their belief system is established
and every thing they learn from that day on is filtered through
that belief system
By age 7 the child is a miniature version of what
the child is going to be like as an adult.
By age 9 his/her moral anchor or mooring are in
By age 12 the child is who is going to be! For good
or for bad!
Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions a
Christian Research Book published in the U.S.A. in 2003 by George
Barna reveals the chances of people being converted:
a. Between 5-12 years, a child has a 32% chance
b. Between 13-19, it is 4% chance
c. After 19 years old, about 6% Yet
90% of Missions money goes to evangelizing adults. If you were an
investor, where would you put your money? Somewhere with over 30%
return or under 10% return?
James Dobson Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Focus
on the Family Said - "It is easier to prepare a boy than to repair
a man". Preaching to children should be the main thrust of Evangelism
and the Great Commission.
Senior citizens age 80 years plus - 65% claim to
be born again.
60 years plus - 35% claim to be born again.
Age 25 - 45 - 16% claim to be born again.
Age 7 - 24 - 4% claim to be born again. Age 7 years
and under... WHO KNOWS!
The Catholics know the importance of reaching children
"Give me a child until he is seven and I will give you the man".
The Catholic Order, the Jesuits.
The Communist ... Hitler is famous for saying:
"Give me a child when he's 7 and he's mine forever." Catholics,
Communist and Muslims all know how to indoctrinate children under
the age of 7.
We must reach this generation before the world gets
You have heard the saying "The children are
the church of tomorrow." Well they were WRONG! "The children
are the church of TODAY." If we leave it for tomorrow it will
be too late and the devil will get them. God is moving through the
children ALL over the world especially places like Africa. I know
He can do the same in Barbados, they come from the same root!
YET in America 80% of youth brought up in a Christian
homes... and attending Sunday School are leaving the church! What
are we doing wrong? The enemy know how to brainwash the children
Scriptural Basis for Ministry to Children
You are going to the best harvest field to bring
in fruit that will remain long after we adults have gone on to heaven.
Besides harvesting the souls of children, you are training them
to harvest others. Why was Abraham chosen? Because he was righteous?
Because he was a friend of God? He had faith? He was obedient?
NO Abraham was chosen because of his attitude toward
children. Genesis 18:19 ' I have chosen him, so that he will direct
his children and his household after him to keep the way of the
LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring
about for Abraham what he has promised him." God had confidence
in him to continue his faith into the next generation.
Here are some Biblical examples:
A. Samuel - I Samuel 3:1 As a child, he was raised
in the temple of God, we are told in 1 Samuel 3 that he laid down
next to the alter of God, in His presence. In those days the voice
of God was not often heard and Eli the head priest could not even
discern that Hannah was praying and pressing into God, he though
she was drunk, the same Eli that allowed his sons to indulge in
sexual immorality within God's house. Eli took three visit from
Samuel before he worked out that maybe God was speaking to the child
Samuel. And Samuel heard the voice of God and prophesied accurately
to adults. 1 Samuel 3. In fact God used him to not only prophecy
but to anoint firstly king Saul and king David.
B. David As a youth, was known by reputation for
private worship, speaking ability, bravery, skill in battle and
relationship to the Lord. Jessie looked at the external characteristics
of his older sons but God looked at David's heart. a. 1 Samuel 16:18
b. 1 Samuel 17:50
C. Esther As a young woman, was perfectly obedient
to her guardian and saved her people. Esther 2:20
D. Four daughters of Philip As young women or children
were known for prophesying Acts 21:8
E. Timothy 2Timothy 1:5 I am reminded of your sincere
faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother
Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.
Our aim is to teach children the ways of God and
not only His acts. Moses knew the Ways of God. But the Israelites
only knew His acts. "If you are pleased with me, teach me your
ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you." Exodus
Every generation is planned by God. Matthew 1:17
'So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations;
and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen
generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ
are fourteen generations.' God counted the generations until
Christ came. He knew. He planned. He chose the generation of the
First Coming. In one generation, they began a whole new age on the
earth and changed all future history. Even our calendar dates back
to that time. The whole New Testament was written by and about 130
people who lived within a 100 year span of time. That is how important
one generation of people can be. Equally important He chose the
parents of those special children that would change the world with
as much care as He chose Moses' mum and Mary to be Jesus' mother.
It is about to happen again. A generation is born who will change
the earth. We need to be aware and prepare. We did not choose the
time of our lives on earth, but we must choose the work of our lives.
This generation of children will not fulfill their destiny unless
we fulfill our destiny to train them. The devil is after them! Every
chosen generation, with a special destiny - satan has tried to destroy
IIn MOSES generation God wanted to birth the Deliverer
and Pharaoh tried to kill the boy babies.
In JESUS’ FIRST COMING generation, god wanted
to birth the Messiah and Herod tried to kill all the baby boys.
In the end time generation of JESUS’ SECOND
COMING could it be that Satan is trying to destroy the babies?
God is raising up Spiritual Midwives to birth this
movement in the earth and to save the babies from abortion - this
is a generation with destiny on their lives and we must save them
at all costs. Every day in America over 4000 babies are aborted!
In Barbados abortion is our #1 killer! Satan is trying to wipe this
generation out like he tried to destroy the generation of Moses,
the devil knew that a boy would be born that would deliver the Hebrews
from slavery in Egypt and introduce the law. So he tried to destroy
them… same as the generation of Jesus at his first coming, Herod
was used by satan to try and destroy the boy babies of that generation…
there was destiny in them. But Jesus survived and it is the same
with the second coming generation of children the devil is trying
to destroy them.
Jesus walked by some young fishermen and said to
them, "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men." They were
the generation of the first coming. Today, He is walking by another
generation and saying, "Follow me. I want you to demonstrate the
fullness of the Kingdom of God." They are the generation of the
second coming. Without you, they will not be ready. They won't hear
His voice or be trained to do His works. They are waiting for you
to rise up and be part of their destiny. Come to the front, if God
is speaking to you to lay your life down for the children of this
country and the destiny of God on the earth.
Time is running out.
