God’s Fall Festivals – Part 4: Last Great Day

Artist: Ava Mitchell—Plainview, NY

Have you ever had a “great” day?

Maybe your parents took your family to the beach where you got to play in the sand and the waves all day long before you finished off the afternoon with a large ice cream cone. Or perhaps you had a great day when you and some of your closest friends spent the day at an amusement park riding roller coasters and eating popcorn and funnel cakes. Whatever you may consider to have been a “great” day, nothing compares to how great the Last Great Day is going to be!  When God calls something great, there can be no mistake that it is certainly GREAT!


How it works:

This Study Guide is written for the purpose of helping parents teach their children vital Biblical topics in a focused, easy-to-follow format. Each section is not meant to be taught in one lesson, rather the topics are organized so parents can choose specific areas of focus and gear lessons toward the learning styles and ages of their children. Each topic is presented in a straightforward manner with accompanying verses for study. The main study should always come from the Scripture itself, while these lessons can act as a guide for reading passages from the Bible. Each lesson packet includes memory verses, questions for meaningful discussion, and activities (added at the end of the packet). Also, though some things may be labeled as Level 1, 2, or 3, the activities, questions, and scriptures for memorizing can be used to fit the needs and learning levels for children of all ages. Enjoy!

God’s Fall Festivals – Part 3: Feast of Tabernacles

Artist: Diego Villafaña – Santiago, Chile

Once Christ returns,

and Satan is put away, it will be time for the real celebration to begin! On God’s calendar, just a few days after Atonement, one of the most joyous and exciting times of the year begins: The Feast of Tabernacles!
Why do people get so excited about this Feast? Is it just a regular family vacation? Or is God giving us something much more exciting to look forward to than simply an eight-day family trip? Why did God include it in His plan to build a family? Keep reading!

God’s Fall Festivals – Part 2: Day of Atonement

After the Feast of Trumpets,

the next holy day we come to is what the Bible calls the Day of Atonement. Remember, the fall holy days represent important events or periods of time that have not happened yet, but will happen very soon in the future. Just as the Feast of Trumpets represents the return of Jesus Christ, the Day of Atonement pictures another very important event which will happen after Christ comes back to Earth. What big, exciting event does this special holy day picture?

The beginning of the New Testament

is the record of the beginning of a new era in God’s plan. The four gospel books (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) tell the history of Jesus Christ as a human being on this earth. Though these books do not include every little thing Jesus Christ did while He lived as a human being, (John said at the end of his book that he didn’t think there could be enough room in all the books in the whole world to record everything that Jesus did!), God did give us enough details of His life for us to learn to be like Him. So what does Christ have to do with Pentecost. Well, just about everything! After Jesus came and lived a perfect life on earth and died for every single person in the whole world, He was resurrected to eternal life. He was the first one to be given that gift, (He is the First of the Firstfruits) and He did it so we all could have a chance to be resurrected to eternal life too!

Let’s have a look at what happened on the first Pentecost after Jesus Christ was raised from the grave!

God wanted a family,

and from the beginning He made a plan for His children. Do you remember Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? God worked with each of these men, and because they obeyed him, he decided to work out His plan through them to have a family. The children of Jacob (whose name you might remember God changed to “Israel”) would become the example children for the rest of the world. God wants all people to be His children, but He had to start with a few people first to be an example for everyone else. So God was working out His plan for all people on earth through the example of the Children of Israel!

So what does this have to do with Pentecost? Just wait and see!
