Leaving Slavery...Again

Brief: A drama for 20 youth to perform in church.
Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - August 18, 2018


Kid: Mum, how did the Israelites get out of slavery?

Narrator: Well, my equally aged child, let me get some of our fellow Pathfinders to help tell the story.
One day God had asked Moses and Aaron to ask the Egyptian Pharaoh to let the Israelites go out into the desert to worship the Lord God. But Pharaoh thought it was a stupid idea.
Pharaoh: [laughs] That’s a stupid idea!

Narrator: And he made the Egyptians work harder than ever before.
Israelite 1:
Aww Man!
Israelite 2: What have you done, Moses?
Israelite 3: Now we have to work harder than ever before!
Israelite 4: Not happy, Moses!

The Why Thousand Years

Brief: Article about the Seventh-day Adventist fundamental belief 28 about the Millennium
Published: RECORD - February 3, 2018
 
Stopovers when travelling by air are generally good to avoid. That way you’re lessening the risk of disconnected flights, not to mention the opportunity for luggage to go missing.
However, there’s one stopover that will be a rewarding experience, even though it involves a 1000-year wait to go home—without your baggage too.
I’m talking about a stopover to end all stopovers—the millennium in heaven spoken about in the Bible.
It’s a common belief that people will be going to heaven for eternity. However, a little Bible study reveals we’re only there for a mere 1000-year stopover—and I say “only” because that’s not much longer than our great-great-(etc)-grandfather, Methuselah, lived for. After that we arrive back home on earth again. This means the rousing last verse of Amazing Grace really needs to be sung “When we’ve been there 1000 years . . .” to be biblically correct.
But don’t get upset at being returned to earth. I agree the proposition of leaving heaven to end up back on earth initially sounds like you’ve being downgraded from first-class luxury to miserable-class torture. But fear not, the earth is being reinstalled to its original sin-free goodness soon after our return.
