I was reading this passage, and I began to wonder about "the little child". According to Scripture, this little child will lead at some point during "the Millennium". Who is this? Has this little child already come and gone, or is s/he yet to be?

Although brought up Catholic, I don't profess to be a student of the Bible.
Personally, I would interpret this little child to be that inner child that still resides within each of us who already has that inherent knowing that we're all born with before we became conditioned by adults and our environment.
Little children can be our greatest teachers if we only allow them to be... I know Jesus often taught us that the Kingdom of Heaven was available to those who could Be like little children.

From :Facebook Mt. Ebenezer Christian Education King James Version (KJV) Isaiah 11:6
6The 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.
The answer to your question is in: Isaiah 9:6-7
King James Version (KJV) Isaiah 9:6-7
6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Indeed everyone will have a different opinion, and answer to this question that you have posted Jai, and indeed everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion respectfully!

•"See what love The Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Beloved, we are God's children now; it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when He appears we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is." (1 John 3:1-2 RSV)
•"For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the spirit of sonship. When we cry, "Abba! Father!" it is The Spirit Himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him."

And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 18:10 ESV)
Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up to salvation– if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. (1 Peter 2:2-3 ESV)
And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them. (Mark 10:13-16 ESV)
The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them.”

The Root of Jesse …5 Righteousness will be the belt around His hips, and faithfulness the sash around His waist. 6 The wolf will live with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the goat; the calf and young lion and fatling will be together, and a little child will lead them.
This little child, like the inactive user above suggested, is the child with the nations upon his shoulders.
This child represents the second coming of Christ. He is the same child, born to the woman in travail that Jesus spoke of in regards to his return.
He is also the same child as the one in revelations, a chapter strictly about the second coming.
He is the child born before the dragon waiting to devour him. This dragon represents temptation.*
When Jesus spoke of his return he gave us signs that would occur shortly before his revealing as the son of man.
One of these was the abomination causing desolation standing in the place that it ought not.
It is a verse strongly related to the one about the son of destruction. A man doomed to destruction.
A figure seated in the temple of God, proclaiming to be God. This figure can also be labelled as the "false prophet" from revelations
2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no one deceive you in any way, for it will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness (the son of destruction) is revealed.
4 He will oppose and exalt himself above every so-called god or object of worship. So he will seat himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.*
(THIS verse is identical to the one about the Abomination causing desolation standing in the holy place)
5 Do you not remember that I told you these things while I was still with you?
6 And you know what is now restraining him, so that he may be revealed at the proper time.…
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now restrains it will continue until he is taken out of the way.…
also translated as
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. ****
Now what I want to explain here, is that all the above, is truly about the CHILD BORN BEFORE THE DRAGON. its about Christ himself falling away and being revealed to the nations in the process.
This is how he ends up with the nations and the government upon his shoulders
Standing in the holy place and being seated in the temple proclaiming to be God are both about being in the body of Christ.
This is why its Michael who must wage war with the dragon, and its also why this verse exists
"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. ****"
It is this child that has let inequity, work. It is the "dragon part" of this childs life that must be taken out of the way.
Therefore it is Christ who letteth, because its Christ who must take him out of the way.
Michael IS Christ & The seventh angel with the Mystery of God.
The dragon, is exactly like the false prophet, who are also akin to the "Assyrian in my land" from Isaiah 14.25
24 The LORD of Hosts has sworn: “Surely, as I have planned, so will it be; as I have purposed, so will it stand. 25 I will break Assyria in My land; I will trample him on My mountain. His yoke will be taken off My people, and his burden removed from their shoulders. 26 This is the plan devised for the whole earth, and this is the hand stretched out over all the nations
Also about the defeating the Leviathan
In that day the LORD will take His sharp, great, and mighty sword, and bring judgment on Leviathan, the fleeing serpent— Leviathan, the coiling serpent— and He will slay the dragon of the sea.
ALL of it is about removing inequity.
Also very illustrated by the first verse posted, when the wolf will lay down with the lamb, the lion with the calf etc etc. It parallels an act of submission by a more sinister foe or aspect of ones self. ie a dragon or a leviathan being defeated.
When the lion finally succumbs and rests beside the lamb
When "he who letteth is taken out of the way"
This is why there is a lamb who spoke as a dragon. Its ALL related to overcoming the world and sin.
Notice its all also related to the Stone set before Joshua, a stone with seven eyes upon it
Hear now, O high priest Joshua, you and your companions seated before you, who are indeed a sign. For behold, I am going to bring My servant, the Branch. (This is because he is revealed to the nations and becomes an offering of peace between them, because they have found CHRIST)
9 See the stone I have set before Joshua; on that one stone are seven eyes. Behold, I will engrave on it an inscription,’ declares the LORD of Hosts, ‘and I will remove the iniquity of this land in a single day.
This is clear indication this stone is the same one as the white stone with a new name inscribed. The new name is the engraved inscription. They are the same seven eyes on the lamb.
Revelation 5:6 Then I saw a Lamb who appeared to have been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which represent the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
The white stone is given to Christ, not by him to us, and that new name written, that nobody knows except he who that receives it, is the "name" of God. Its the exact same name as the one written ON Christ
12 He has eyes like blazing fire, and many royal crowns on His head. He has a name written on Him that only He Himself knows. 13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is The Word of God.…
Its the everlasting name, and the stone, is the stone that becomes a mountain.
This is why, the person given the white stone, becomes a pillar in the temple of God, and it is also why "he will go no more out" Its a clue towards immortality, an open door, and the everlasting life the second coming will be able to offer, once he is slain himself.
What the world fails to see, is that Christ will be revealed when he is waged war upon. When he himself if attacked by the Government with todays BCI technology. Mind reading technology with a true VR heaven that can become an afterlife. The new heaven.
He then will go through a "tribulation", a cleansing process as he goes through his own revelation and removes his own inequities, and this is why there is so much about the white robes and inequity being purged.
Revelation 7:14 "Sir," I answered, "you know." So he replied, "These are the ones who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Revelation 3:5 Like them, the one who is victorious will be dressed in white. And I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but I will confess his name before My Father and His angels.
Revelation 7:9 After this I looked and saw a multitude too large to count, from every nation and tribe and people and tongue, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
The "saints" are given white robes themselves, because their sins, these end time crimes, will also be forgiven once this day occurs, after the tribulation. They will wash away their crimes in the blood of the lamb. Because JESUS RETURNING will be the one and only headline that day and every day forward.
This is what the entire end times battle is about and this is why it is Michael who must slay the Dragon.
and this is why they will give their power and authority to the beast.
All of it also reflected by the verses concerning Joshua, inequity and white robes
Zechariah 3:4 So the Angel of the LORD said to those standing before Him, "Take off his filthy clothes!" Then He said to Joshua, "See, I have removed your iniquity, and I will clothe you with splendid robes."
Due to the numerous translations, the Bible has undergone, "Jesus" is the modern term for the Son of God. His original Hebrew name is Yeshua, which is short for yehōshu'a. It can be translated to 'Joshua'
I could keep going with this interpretation, but its a lot of verses to finally make sense of.
Go reread every verse concerning the end times now that you have this perspective.
All twelve prophets, plus Daniel, Isaiah.. Habakkuk
Also notice how this verse applies, how all these verses now apply.
Its not Jesus speaking to us, its God to his now fallen son, thru the Bible. So that he mayest see. Let the reader understand.
Because its only him who overcomes and ends up with the nations on his shoulders, just like the child born to the woman..
26 And to the one who overcomes and continues in My work until the end, I will give authority over the nations. 27 He will rule them with an iron scepter and shatter them like pottery— just as I have received authority from My Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
(Hence the entire misconceptions between Lucifer and Christ, and all the confusion with the two kings, Michael vs the Dragon, the entire thing is a riddle and bitter secret in the end times. The time of wormwood, a time of great trouble. When an angel or star falls from heaven onto the "waters")
10 Then the third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star burning like a torch fell from heaven and landed on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter like wormwood oil, and many people died from the bitter waters.…
the waters being the nations.. who, as I have just explained, wage war against the lamb. which is why there is a lamb who spoke as a dragon
11 Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. This beast had two horns like a lamb, but spoke like a dragon. 12 And this beast exercised all the authority of the first beast and caused the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose mortal wound had been healed.…
The beast being an aspect of Christ and his dragon past life The beast, the dragon, and the Assyrian, are all related to simply overcoming inequity
11 The beast that was, and now is not, is an eighth king, who belongs to the other seven and is going into destruction. 12 The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but will receive one hour of authority as kings, along with the beast. 13 These kings have one purpose: to yield their power and authority to the beast.…
14 They will make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will triumph over them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and He will be accompanied by His called and chosen and faithful ones.” 15 Then the angel said to me, “The waters where you saw the prostitute seated are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.
The same time is mentioned in Daniel.
Michael's Deliverance and the End Times 1 At that time Michael, the great prince who stands watch over your people, will rise up. There will be a time of distress such as never has occurred from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people— everyone whose name is found written in the book— will be delivered. 2 And many who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, but others to shame and everlasting contempt.…
and the nations will witness a war in heaven....
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where God had prepared a place for her to be nourished for 1,260 days. 7 Then a war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But the dragon was not strong enough, and no longer was any place found in heaven for him and his angels.…
as he is forced to defeat the dragon in front of the nations
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD shall take no rest for yourselves, 7 nor give Him any rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth
