bible mysteries

SPIRITUAL FORMATION:

Nothing is impossible for God.

bible verse:

“‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord.” Isaiah 55:8 (NIV)

key passages:

2 Kings 2:1-18

elijah taken up to heaven

This is one of those Old Testament stories that are filled with interesting details that spark great questions and hopefully conversations. How many times in the Bible do people go directly to heaven without dying first? The Bible tells us that only 2 people, Enoch and Elijah had been taken up to heaven. In Elijah case, we find his departure to heaven was with chariots of fire, horse of fire and a whirlwind. This seems like the making of a movie but is actually happened!

There are three things that you need to know about Elijah. The first is that Elijah was a prophet. He told others the message and warnings from God. Elijah name means “The Lord is my God.” The second fact about Elijah is he listened to God. The third is that he was obedient to God and went and spoke as God directed. These qualities made Elijah a prophet whom was spoken about in the New Testament.

Remember Elijah served God faithfully all his life. He was a brave prophet who delivered message of judgement to wicked kings and queens. He performed miraculous signs because God was with Him.

As our lesson tells us, this was the case of the missing person, but he was not actually missing, God had a plan for Elijah the whole time! The bottom line of this lesson is nothing is impossible for God.

FAMILY QUESTIONS:

  • What is a prophet?
  • Who was Elijah?
  • How did Elijah go to Heaven?
  • Why didn’t anyone find Elijah body?
  • Do you believe God still does the impossible?

family game: don't drop the ball

Two large beach balls
Split the room in two. Toss a beach ball in the air on both sides and play some music. The kids must bounce their beach ball in the air and keep it bouncing over their heads as long as they can. The team whose ball hits the ground first loses.

announces the Lord.” Isaiah 55:8 (NIrV)

TRINITY LITTLES summer

week 16 | July 05

SPIRITUAL FORMATION:

Adam and Eve

Bible information:

Genesis 3

The Jesus Storybook Bible The Biggest Lie

The story of man continues when a crafty serpent (Satan) twist the truth and asks Eve if God really loves her. In her confusion she makes a costly mistake and uses her own judgement instead of using God’s love and special rules of the garden. Even though they both ate from the tree that God told them was forbidden, even though they could not live in the perfect home any longer, God never stopped loving his people. He told them they would be able to be together again. He clothed and cared for Adam and Eve as he closed the entrance to the garden. He knew that his love was the unstoppable, everlasting, the stop at nothing kind of love…the story continues.

FAMILY QUESTIONS:

  • Who is God’s enemy?
  • What was the one rule God had for Adam and Eve?
  • Who is coming to rescue his children?

craft supplies:

  • Large green construction paper
  • Red or orange small pieces of construction paper
  • Toilet paper roll
  • Green pipe cleaner
Cut the green construction paper into a large tree. Take the small red pieces to resemble fruit. Cut a ¼ slit on each side of the toilet paper roll. Place the green paper into the slits of the roll. Use the green pipe cleaner as the serpent.
