A CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM BIBLE PROPHECY
A LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM EXPLAINED
Let's begin our studt, shall we? The Bible has a statement within, that strikes the curiosity of many souls including many Religious leaders.
The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the
leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and
the young lion and the fatling together ...
and a little child shall lead them.
Ever read these words and wondered who this child is?

a lil journey into PROPHECY in the Word of God.
Isaiah Chapter 11, it speaks of a time of peace where a
child leads the people. Most who know the Bible, know that this time
period of peace is a 1000 year period of peace known as the

mind that these prophecies were written after the death
of King David.
Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your
soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting
covenant with you,
even the sure
mercies of David. Behold, I have given him for
a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the
Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it:
it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall
be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that
day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his
yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and
strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But
they shall serve the LORD their God, and
David their king, whom I will
raise up unto them.
And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall
feed them, even
my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall
be their shepherd.
And I the LORD will be their God,
and my servant David a prince among them;
I the LORD have spoken it. And I will make with them a
covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to
cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in
the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.
And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I
will take the children of Israel from among the
heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on
every side, and bring them into their own land: And I
will make them
in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king
shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more
two nations, neither shall they be divided into two
kingdoms any more at all. Neither shall they defile
themselves any more with their idols, nor with their
detestable things, nor with any of their
transgressions: but I will save them out of all their
dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will
cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will
be their God. And David my servant
shall be king over them;
and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall
also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes,
and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I
have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your
fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein,
even they, and their children, and their children's
children for ever: and my servant
David shall be their
prince for ever.

seek the LORD their God, and
David their king;
and shall fear the LORD and His goodness in the latter

No doubt about it ... David will be king.
But, being as David has passed on to the next realm (Died)
how will this be?

the bloodline of David) will LIVE and rule ON EARTH during

FIRST theory ...
COULD THE CHILD
BE REFERRING TO JESUS?
NOTE: In verse 1 it says ... a ROD out of the stem of Jesse, and a BRANCH shall grow out of his
ROOTS:This is saying that from the OFFSPRING of Jesse will come another
which will be this CHILD which will lead during the Millennium. Then in verse 10 it says ... And in that day there shall be a
of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to
it shall the Gentiles seek:
And there shall come
forth a ROD out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch
shall grow out of his roots:
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the
spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of
counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the
fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick
understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall
not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove
after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness
shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for
the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth:
with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his
lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall
be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the
girdle of his reins. The wolf also shall dwell with
the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling
together; and a little child shall lead them.And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones
shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw
like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the
hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his
hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor
destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall
be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters
cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a ROOT of Jesse, which shall stand for an
ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek:
and his rest shall be glorious.
A ROOT means it came BEFORE Jesse.
Jesse is David's Dad.
individual spoken of in verse 10 is Jesus ... Jesus was here
from the beginning.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with
God, and the Word was God. The same was in the
beginning with God.
Paul confirms this individual in verse 10 ... IS Jesus:
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and
we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten
of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the
circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the
promises made unto the fathers: And that the Gentiles
might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For
this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles,
and sing unto thy name. And again he saith, Rejoice,
ye Gentiles, with his people. And again, Praise the
Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.
saith, There shall be a ROOT of Jesse, and He that
shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in Him shall
the Gentiles trust.

But, who is this BRANCH in verse 1?

is really the child that will be king and rule on Earth during

clear in the prophecies that the LORD will be the Lord in HEAVEN and
David will be their king and shepherd ON EARTH.
GREAT way to discern if Jesus is the child being
referred to as "David" in these prophecies, is to determine where Jesus will be during the Millennium, in Heaven or on Earth?
me give you a couple of hints:
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and
judgment was given unto them: and
I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for
the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God,
and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his
image, neither had received his mark upon their
foreheads, or in their hands;
and they lived and
reigned with Christ a thousand years.

will they live and reign with Jesus?
ON EARTH OR
In order to find out, we have to find
out where the souls are, that died in the name of Christ:
And when He had opened the Fifth Seal,
I saw under the
altar the souls of them that were slain for the Word
of God, and for
the testimony which they held: And they cried with a
loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true,
dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that
dwell on the Earth?
robes were given unto every one of them;
and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet
for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their
brethren, that should be killed as they were, should

will LIVE and REIGN in HEAVEN.
know that the David, who is to rule ON
EARTH during the Millennium, is NOT Jesus, because those who
died in His name are in HEAVEN living and reigning with Him.
says that during the Millennium, David will be the leader
Scripture says he will feed the people and be their
shepherd. Scripture says, a little child shall lead them
during this time of peace.
Now, let us look at the other theory ...
A RESURRECTED KING DAVID?
Tho we know resurrection of the dead is possible ...
Are we to
assume that when the
Rapture and Resurrection occurs, that David's soul will come
to Earth from Abraham's Bosom to rule once again, while all
the other souls go to Heaven to live and reign with Jesus?
If you were
David, wouldn't you be lifting your eyebrow about that one?
We had better
investigate this a little more, don'tcha think?
KNOW that during the Millennium that God will be the
people's God and that David will be king and shepherd over
The Bible is CLEAR.
So, how do we make sense of all this?
our mortal minds a break for a few minutes here and put on
our SPIRITUAL thinking caps for a while, okay?
know that God can put the same SPIRIT into different people?
possible that someone with the SPIRIT of David
will rule as king on Earth during the Millennium?
the Prophet Elijah ... Now, when you think about Elijah, you
probably think about him challenging 450 false prophets to a
"Who can prove their God is real" contest, and winning,
But, do you
also remember that just after this event, he sheepishly hid
in the wilderness praying for death because he feared the
woman Jezebel? Could this be one and the same man? The
answer is yes, but with a different SPIRIT working through
him at times.
God can and does put different SPIRITS into people.
Prophet who the Lord chose to take Elijah's place) asked for
a double portion of Elijah's spirit.
2 Kings 2:9
And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that
Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee,
before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I
pray thee, let a
double portion of thy spirit be upon me.
2 Kings 2:14-15
And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him,
and smote the waters, and said, Where is the LORD God
of Elijah? and when he also had smitten the waters,
they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over.
And when the sons of the Prophets which were to view
at Jericho saw him, they said,
The spirit of Elijah
doth rest on Elisha.
And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the
ground before him.
like another example?
of Elijah was ALSO put into John the Baptist:
I will send you Elijah
before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the
LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to
the children, and the heart of the children to their
fathers, lest I come and smite the Earth with a curse.
For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send
my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy
way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them
that are born of women there hath not risen a greater
than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is
least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. And
from the days of John the Baptist until now the
Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent
take it by force. For all the Prophets and the law
prophesied until John.
And if ye will receive
it, this is Elias (Elijah), which was for to come.
And they asked Him, saying,
Why say the scribes
that Elias (Elijah) must first come?
And He answered and told them, Elias verily cometh
first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written
of the Son of man, that He must suffer many things,
and be set at nought. But I say unto you,
That Elias (Elijah) is
indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever
they listed, as it is written of him.
A CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM BIBLE QUESTIONS
A LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM MYSTERY
What was it that Jesus said? If you can understand it,
John the Baptist is
John the Baptist was John the Baptist and Elijah was Elijah,
but what does it mean, "this IS Elias"?
God put the same spirit that was in Elijah, into John the
Baptist as well.
everyone, adjust your thinking caps a little because I have
a little puzzler for you:
IF John the Baptist was Elijah ... Who was Elijah during the
And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias
talking with him.
Was he Elijah or Elisha or John the Baptist?
one more illustration, just to understand thoroughly that
God can put the same spirit into different people:
And I will give power unto my Two Witnesses, and
they shall prophecy a thousand two hundred and
threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
These are the two olive trees,
and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the Earth.
see if we understand this properly ... These two individuals
are chosen by God to be on Earth during a three and one half
year time period during the End Times ... They are the "Two
olive trees and candlesticks" ... Before we proceed, it's
important to learn more of this phrase "Two olive trees and
candlesticks" that stand before God.
Zechariah, it tells us
of an Angel talking with Zechariah.
Then answered I, and
said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the
right side of the candlestick and upon the left side
thereof? And I answered again, and said unto him, What
be these two olive branches which through the two
golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what
these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then said he,
These are the two
anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole
showed him a vision. The vision was of a Candlestick of
gold, with the bowl upon the top of it, with seven lamps and
seven pipes. It had two "olive trees" on either side of it.
Zechariah asked the Angel what the two olive trees stood for
... What the symbols represented. The Angel responded in
Verse 14 ... These are the two anointed ones that stand
before the Lord.
So, it is
apparent that God has two spirits that He places in humans,
as He did with Joshua and Zerubbabel, in the book of
Zechariah. God places these spirits into humans to fulfill
His will. This will be done through the
Witnesses in the book of Revelation.
examples, can we not conclude that it is POSSIBLE that when
the prophecies predicted that David would be king and
shepherd during the Millennium that it was referring to the
SPIRIT that was in David, will also be in the king who leads
God's people on Earth during the Millennium.
A CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM BIBLE PROMISE
A LITTLE CHILD SHALL LEAD THEM VOW
Just as it
was with the SPIRIT of Elijah being in John the Baptist?
I know that
your natural instincts want to go by the letter rather than
the spirit of the words so I will help you to understand
In the beginning was the WORD, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy
Ghost: and these
three are one.
Immediately, you want to say, Yes ...
AND YOU ARE CORRECT!
Does Jesus not sit on the right Hand of God?
The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand,
until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand
of the power of God.
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, He was
received up into Heaven, and sat on the right hand of

that God is God, and Jesus is God, and the Holy Spirit is
God. We understand how essential all three are to the
completeness of our Lord.
it as TRUTH ... And it is.
We understand that the depths of God are beyond man's
limited understanding ... Yet, oft times man seems to forget
this rule of thumb when attempting to discern other aspects
of God's Word such as prophecy and tend to believe the
carnal interpretation of a Spiritual matter.
on this to further point out that even though God may put
the same SPIRIT into different people, they are still
Baptist didn't have the exact same physical appearance as
Elijah, and certainly they had unique personalities. They
are not clones. God put the same SPIRIT into each of them as
to accomplish His will through these two MEN.
So at this
point, my question to you is this:
Could it be
that this "David" that we read of in the Word, who is to
lead God's people during the Millennium, will be a unique,
different, separate person than David the King was?
remind you once again that scripture said that the Lord would send Elijah back:
I will send you Elijah
would sound like God was going to send Elijah HIMSELF back
from the dead but with hindsight, we see He did NOT.
Himself said that if one could comprehend it, John
the Baptist WAS Elijah.
This is a
good time to remember what happens to the spirit when a
Then shall the
dust return to the Earth as it was: and the spirit
shall return unto God who gave it.
what we've just read about the spirit returning to God when
a person dies, it's not incomprehensible to conclude that
God is keeping the spirit that David had in safe keeping
until the time of the Millennium, when He will give it to
that special person that only He knows, who will shepherd
His people and be the chosen Earthly prince forevermore.
... Why David?
have noticed when reading the Bible, that David was one of
God's favorite people.All of David's predecessors were
compared to David and when you read the Word, you can sense
a unique kind of Love when the Lord refers to David, more
intensely than other men of God. Perhaps David won a special
place in God's heart because of the adoration that he had
for the Lord and his way of expressing it through writing
psalms and singing and playing the harp.
was David's earnest burning desire to follow God's
commandments and lead His people in doing the same. Maybe it
was the deep sincerity of David's repentance whenever he did
something to disappoint the Lord that made him dear to God's
heart. Maybe it was David's total devotion right from the
get go, when as a child, he even refused to wear armor,
because he put ALL his Faith in God as his protection, and
stepped up to defend the army of God against the giant
Goliath while the rest of Israel stood watching in fear and
