Week 8: John, Follower of Jesus [July 26 – August 2]
ACTIVITY:While John was stuck on the island of Patmos as a punishment for following Jesus, an angel showed him visions. He needed to tell others about these visions, but he would be in danger if the Romans found out about it. So, he wrote about the visions in Revelations using a secret code. The early church understood the code, but the Roman officials did not. These visions or dreams describe the kingdom of God. This week, you can see if you can crack a secret code and receive a message from God.
HOLY-GHOST-FROM-A-POST CLUE: It is spring and new things are growing. These places can make your yard look beautiful and bring you joy.
