  1. Rebecca added a post in a topic Suggestions 4 SS Posters   

    I don't have any suggestions for cheap professional posters, as when I was looking for some, I couldn't find any cheap ones that were drawn in a style I liked. So my Sunday School walls are bare most of the time. However, last year, I gave my students large sheets of butcher paper and had them draw scenes from the Bible lesson from 'Daniel and the Lions Den', they turned out great! They also drew a favorite Bible scene and chose the 'Temptation of Jesus', which was a group effort. The kids were thrilled with it and enjoyed having it up on the wall until Christmas rolled around and I put it away.
    I am thinking of doing something similar again, only with smaller and more durable poster paper. This time I'm going to have them individually choose either a favorite verse to write down/decorate or a favorite scene to draw. This might be something your Sunday School kids would be interested in doing. If you have access to an overhead projector, you could even find a scene of your own that could be projected onto the wall and the kids could trace over and paint it as a class project. (If you can't draw directly on the wall, you can cover the size you want with poster paper.)

    trapperhoney, it's been over a week, so you may post your own question now.

    Abishag the Shunammite
    I Kings 1:1-4 1 Now king David was old and stricken in years; and they covered him with clothes, but he gat no heat. 2 Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat. 3 So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king. 4 And the damsel was very fair, and cherished the king, and ministered to him: but the king knew her not.
    (I'm not sure how 'elementary' that answer would be -if this is the one you're talking about- I didn't know her name, I just thought... "uh, that one woman who helped David when he was old?" and then I had to look it up)
    Edit: Ukuelemike beat me to it! I type too slow.

    Ah, I over-thought it!

    Couldn't all human beings be considered human electric blankets, though?
    But to answer the question: There were two: Elijah and Elisha both raised boys from the dead by laying on them. Although if I had to choose, I'd say Elisha, since the Bible specifically mentions the child got warm. I would've said Paul, but he just hugged the guy, said he was fine, and went back to preaching(Acts 20:10), so he'd be more like a human defibrillator, haha!
    Elijah -- I Kings 17:17-24 -- v.21"And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again."
    Elisha -- II Kings 4:32-37 -- v.34 "And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm."

    Of course Alan believes the Bible is our final authority! It's quite obvious by the context that the sentence is talking about the churches today who disregard God's Word, it is not their final authority. Alan is correct, in this day and age more and more churches are laying aside the Bible in favor of books written by man. Once upon a time, the Bible was revered, it was considered holy, and it was treated as such by those in the churches throughout the world. But, in this day and age the Bible is offensive even to some of those in the church so they disregard it or change it to suit their warped beliefs. If the churches truly loved the Word of God, there would not be so many perverted bibles on the market today, the people of God would be too terrified to change God's holy words. But they're not scared, not even a tad bit worried. And that's because they don't believe the Bible is the very Word of God, to them it's just a book.

    Butterfly transformation
    p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; }
    God is an amazing God. The amount of detail and care He placed into the creatures He created is just astounding. Each and every one of the billions of insects in the world is perfectly suited for the life it leads. Their coloring, their food of choice, their life cycle, their natural defenses... everything about them is designed perfectly. God put all this detail into the tiniest of creatures most of us don't think twice about.
    I think dragonflies are amazing, they're my favorite insect. Their metamorphosis from a life perfectly suited for living underwater to a life as a true master of flight in the air is just a miracle. Only God could have created such a unique insect.
    p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; } Now, everyone is more familiar with the life cycle of the butterfly than the dragonfly. Their life cycle is used by preachers and Sunday school teachers to illustrate 2 Corinthians 5:17  "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." Both insects undergo a metamorphosis and transform into something completely different from what they were before. If you did not know about their life cycle, you wouldn't believe the flying creatures were once creepy crawlies. Only God can change us into a new creature. He has a perfect design for our lives but sometimes we are so used to living our life as a creepy crawlie, we can't see God has perfectly equipped us to lead a new, different, and amazing life. Are you using your wings? Or are you still on the ground?
    Sadly I do not have a photo series of a dragonfly I raised from nymph to adult. And I needed an excuse to post photos of my Lime butterfly I raised from caterpillar to adult. I just released it today.

    Blond jokes are funnier when told by bunnies.  

  9. Rebecca added a post in a topic Revelation chapter 19-22 Study.   

    I think the Ezekiel/John comparison is interesting. I've not compared the two before, so I'm curious if John saw the same "wheels" as Ezekiel did and chose to describe other things, or didn't see them. I know everything John described was directly related to prophecies and such, but I don't think everything Ezekiel described was related to anything or not? It seems Ezekiel was just so fascinated by the things he saw and so described them in great detail, but didn't really have a lot of correlation to the prophecies? Or did I miss it?

    Thank you for posting these Bible studies. I appreciate learning more about the book of Revelation.

    I added these new rules to the first page, but I thought I'd add it here as well, just in case.
    Revised rules:
    * All questions must come from the KJV Bible and be supported by scripture.
    * All questions must be answered with a scripture verse included. If your question can't be answered with a scripture verse or two, try to re-word it or ask a different question.
    * If someone answers a question but the person who asked the question doesn't return to say whether or not it's correct by the end of one week(or if no one else disputes the answer), the person who answered may begin a new post and ask their question.

    I think you meant Romans 5:6 Salyan.    And yes, the word "ungodly" used in that passage would include satanists, or any other enemies of God (Romans 5:10).
  13. Rebecca added a post in a topic Revelation chapter 19-22 Study.   

    My thoughts on this are similar. I think by the time the rapture rolls around, most Christians (especially in countries very hostile to Christianity) will probably be hiding the fact that they're Christians, to keep themselves and their family safe from persecution. So when the rapture does take place, most won't put 2 and 2 together and think "Whoa, all the Christians have disappeared! The Bible was true after all!" No, I think that link won't be realized, plus the lie from the anti-Christ will be so believable that any who do link the two together will be laughed off as crazy conspiracy theorists.
    Plus, as skewered as Christianity is becoming, who can even recognize someone on the street as a true Christian even today? It doesn't take much 'persecution' to embarrass most Christians into mumbling "I'm not that kind of Christian!" When asked about soul winning or the fundamentals of Baptist Church doctrines...
