You need to acknowledge in your heart and say it with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died for your sins on the cross and all the sins of the whole world, was buried, rose again from the dead on the 3rd day, to reconcile us to God the Father. He took our sins on Himself as a living Sacrifice and gave up His life for us. "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe in the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." John 3:36 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18; For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23; That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9; Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. Acts 3:19

Age of Accountability, Salvation is needed for Children too
I came across some articles that talked about ‘age of accountability’ and various people stated their views about what they thought the Bible said about this topic. But then, I decided, that why don’t I just ask God about it and ask Him what He has to say about it. I know that children are also in need of salvation, but I wanted to see what the Lord thought about this topic.
So I asked the Lord, “Jesus, I want to talk to you about the age of accountability – like – I want to know, please tell me, when is a child responsible for their salvation? What do you go by? Is there an age? How do you figure this out?”
And He said, “Well, for one, I offer salvation to everyone. Everyone who calls on My Name shall be saved.
Now – then – it just depends who wants to call on My Name. There is no minimum age set in Scriptures, because I don’t want to limit it to anyone.
It’s available to all – just all who ask. So you can ask – ask whatever age you understand it to be.
If you don’t or can’t understand at age one, then, of course you won’t ask. If you can’t understand at age 2, then you won’t ask.
But if you understand at age 3 or 4 or 5 or 6, then, of course, you can ask – and I will give it to you.
So you, the parent or guardian, or whoever is responsible for that child can ask Me to open up salvation to that child, or to the children, if you have several, or few of them.
You can pray and you should be praying, for Me, The Lord Jesus Christ to open up, to reveal Myself, through you teaching them My Word, to them, to their hearts, so that they then can receive it, from Me.
Pray that I give them understanding of My Word. In the Bible it says even a child is known by his actions – whether they are good or not. So, children have a concept of good and bad, good and evil. So they can know the concept of where good and evil comes from. They can know, they can comprehend, that there is a Saviour, there is a Creator – and they can know that there’s someone that’s bad – the enemy – who roars around, seeking who to devour.
They can know about Me, obviously – they feel and know about the comfort and love, that their parents provide, well most – but you know what I mean. They can feel that and know that it is true. That they can be, and that they are loved.
So then, they can know, deep down, that surely that their mother or father will come through – for them.
With time, they can learn, that there is another Father, that loves them so much so – He’s the One that created them. It’s built into them – this internal love force. They are Mine.
Suffer the little children – and do not forbid them to come to My Kingdom – for unless you are born again – you can’t enter into My Kingdom.
This means, their innocence in Me. They just trust Me, to do everything for them. They just know their parents will watch out for them. They just know that they are loved – I’m talking in the regular sense. Of course – there are exceptions where love does not rule in a family – or families.
But – I’m saying in general then.
So – as soon as the child understands the difference between right from wrong, good versus evil, Satan vs. God, enemy and darkness and truth and light – they can be held accountable for their own salvation. They are old enough to comprehend the root of evil and the root of truth.
Many parents may underestimate the power of what a child can know or learn – but I say – if they know the root of good and evil, they are old enough to learn about and know about Me – Jesus – because I am the root of Truth – I Am the Spirit of Truth. You see?
It is also a mystery I revealed to the world.
Many struggle with this. Many think it’s 12 or 13, or even older.
No – that was when I already went into the Temple – and I was ready to ‘follow’ after God – even though, I knew of Him all along.
But, a child of 12 or 13, can already, long ago, understand between the difference of right and wrong, good and evil. That’s when they should already be ‘ready’ to go ‘into service’ for Me – like helping out in little jobs here and there at the Church – if not even, much sooner.
Children enjoy, like being assigned tasks to do, and many can even do them much younger.
But, age 12 or 13, is not when children know the difference between right from wrong – it is way, way sooner.
And then, I didn’t start My very formal ministry until I was 30 – but clearly, that is a different thing altogether.
So the question is, at what age is a child deemed accountable for their own soul, for their own salvation? And the answer like it says in My Scriptures – is when they know the difference between truth and lies – when they can know who I am – The Saviour of the world – that’s when they’re deemed responsible.
There will be many children in Hell because parents think they don’t know about Me yet, or can’t realize about Me.
But the truth is – children can know and yearn for peace in their hearts at a very early age. This is the best time to reach them.
The focus should be on preschoolers, and not in the teens even – that’s way too late. Catch them when they’re young – when their hearts yearn for Me still – before too much corruption sets in from all the TV’s now, the ungodly world, and the like.
So parents, you must pray for salvation of these little souls – for they are too precious for Me to lose to Hell.
They can say a repentance prayer – just like anybody else can. Of course, it will be much shorter. It can be like this:
Dear Jesus, I know I do wrong things. Please forgive Me for not listening to mommy and daddy, and everybody else. I am sorry for the sins – for doing wrong things. I believe You died for me, and paid for my sins. Please come into my heart today, so that I can go to Heaven when I die, or when you call for Me to go. I love you Jesus. Thank you for dying for me and washing my soul clean with your blood. I pray all this in Jesus Name. Amen.
Or – even shorter, for the younger ones.
Dear Jesus Christ, The Saviour of the world, I believe You are the truth. I believe You died for me so that I wouldn’t have to go to Hell. Thank you for washing me clean with your blood and saving me. I believe you love me and that you are God. I receive you today. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
So there are some examples of prayers that children – even up to preteen can easily say to receive Me, Jesus Christ, into their hearts.
May God bless you. It’s a great question. Pray for the salvation of many souls – to come through the mouth of babes – through the children of the world – for they need salvation too – because everyone is born a ‘sinner’ and so everyone needs and deserves salvation of their soul, out of the Pits of Hell.
Parents can pray for their children – to bring them to the Lord, but the child needs to accept Jesus himself or herself also – just like anybody else.
So parents – take on this yoke and save your own children – like draw them to the Word – and ask them to repeat after you – if necessary – so their souls can be assigned to Me, Jesus The Saviour of the World.
Many still need to be saved – many still need to come to Me. The time is short – oh – how short it is. Run through your families and double-check that all of your children have accepted the Lord as Lord and Saviour of their lives, of their souls. And the child doesn’t need the parent’s permission to do this – if the child is not born again – the child will give an account for their soul.
But the parents have the responsibility to train and nurture the child into the way of the Lord – so that the child will indeed go that route – in the path of righteousness, for My Name’s sake. Glory to God – may mercy come to me now – I am waiting – call on the Name of The Lord for salvation – and I will give it. Salvation comes from The Lord – only by Me can you get saved – can you receive salvation.
So again, the answer is – when the child knows the difference between right from wrong, it means that they can differentiate the root of existence of truth and evil – which means that they can relate that truth comes from God and lies come from the enemy. Because I Am the Spirit of Truth, but the enemy is the father of lies. And that’s it.
There are exceptions, medically speaking – some children and even adults are mentally challenged – have mental handicaps where they cannot reason right, or their reasoning does not amount to much, or it is too difficult for them to know the difference between right from wrong, as the difference between truth and evil, and the like – and these – these I will judge and assign accordingly. But – you can still pray and ask Me that I assign their souls to Jesus Christ – the Saviour of the World. I will deal with, and oversee these souls accordingly. And will deal with them accordingly at the Rapture too, as well. Thus says the Lord.
I am a God of Mercy, of Great Mercy and Great Love. But I do judge – and My judgements are true and honest – and I need not anyone to judge Me – or tell Me what to do. For I know all – and see all – and My call – My judgements are always true and just. For I am a just God. Thus says the Lord. Amen.” 2:32pm
And then the Lord continued,
“Children can yell, they can scream, they can be nice. So they know the difference – and choose accordingly.
When the Spirit of God enters into a soul – I can continue to work in that child and manifest in them to the fullness of God for that being. The younger – the better.”
Infants and children up to the age of accountability are at the mercy of the Lord, regardless of the spiritual condition of their parents.
Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it.
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.
Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
Sample Prayer for Children #1:
Dear Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world, I want you to be my Saviour. Please forgive me and save me from all of my sins. Please let me live in Heaven with you. Please wash my soul with Your Blood. I believe You died for me on the Cross. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Sample Prayer for Children #2:
Dear Jesus Christ, I love you. I’m sorry for all the bad things that I do, and that I did. I’m so sorry. Please forgive me. I want to live in Heaven with you. Please give me a clean heart so that I can go to Heaven to live with you there, when you come for me. I love you so very much. I believe you died for me on the Cross. Thank you for saving me and giving me a clean new heart. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
SAMPLE PRAYER for Older Children and Adults or Anyone #1:
If you want to assign your soul to Jesus Christ, and to receive Jesus Christ into your heart, and then become a Child of God, you can just say a simple prayer like this:
Dear Jesus, The Saviour of the World, today I come before You and want to make You The Lord and Saviour of my life. I need You to save Me from all of my sins. I have been wrong by not serving You earlier. I am truly sorry for each and every sin, each and every wrong action that I have done in my life. I ask You for complete forgiveness of all of my sins. I ask You to completely wash all of my sins away from me, from my name, from my soul by The Precious Blood of The Lamb. I believe that You died for me on The Cross. I accept what You did for me as complete payment for my sins. I ask You to please write my name in The Book of Life, so that I can live my eternal life with You in Heaven. I ask all of this from You, Jesus. And I thank You for Your free gift of salvation – that You paid in full by shedding all of Your Blood and Your Life for me. Thank You for taking Me into Your Arms and into Your Heart. I love You ever so much. Until We see each other on The Other Side, I’ll always love you and stay faithful to You – even to the end of the age. I love you Jesus and thank You for everything You’ve done for me. I pray all this in Jesus Name. Amen.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. “12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
SAMPLE PRAYER for Older Children and Adults, or Anyone #2:
Here is another example of a prayer you can pray, if you want to assign your soul to Jesus Christ, and to receive Jesus Christ into your heart, and then become a Child of God, you can just say a simple prayer like this:
Dear Jesus Christ, The Saviour of the World, The Son of God: I understand that a long time ago, You lived and walked on the Earth, this Planet Earth; well – You were in Heaven before that – You are Eternal – so You always were – and are and will be. But – You bled and died and shed Your blood by dying for me on the Cross – and all the sins of the whole world. I agree that The Father, The Heavenly Father, accepted Your bodily sacrifice, Your death, the shedding and spilling of Your blood, Your innocent, Your truly innocent blood – as full payment for all of my sins – was paid in full on the Cross.
So now – I can be scot free – I can be claimed as pure – I am be claimed as righteous – because Your Precious Blood goes before Me and washes My sins away from me – so then I appear before The Father as sinless – so then – I can be granted free access to the Father, through You, His only Son, Jesus Christ, and through the power of The Holy Spirit – to my rightful place in Heaven. I was created to live in unity and communion, communication with God – and I’m so sorry that I haven’t lived a good life, that was pleasing to God The Father.
So now – I repent, I say I’m sorry for disobeying You God – and am asking full forgiveness of all my sins and I claim redemption because of Your Sacrifice for Me. I want to live with You Jesus Christ, in Your Eternal Kingdom. I become a Child of God when I pray, when I repent, asking forgiveness and asking of mercy from You. I believe You forgive me in full – and I claim victory for me to live in Heaven with You – in Your Forever Home in Heaven. Thank you for preparing a Home for me in Heaven. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for saving my soul from Hell. Thank you for redeeming me, getting me out of the Pit of Hell, getting me out of the eternal flame of fire – the fire of Hell. I love you Jesus and am truly sorry for not loving You sooner – not loving you properly. I thank you that You receive me so easily – I run into your arms because I need You – as my Saviour. Thank you Jesus for everything You’ve done for me. In Jesus name I pray all this. Amen.
May God bless you and save your soul for Heaven.
