Life Kids Oct 27 Bible Story Israel Taken Captive

TOPIC: Israel Taken Captive

BIBLE PASSAGES: 2 Kings 17

KEY PASSAGE: 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance”

STORY POINT: Israel ignored God’s prophets and was captured.

BIBLE BASIS: Israel’s exile was God’s judgment on their sin but God was not finished working among His people. God was still working out His plan to keep His covenant promises. Jesus became the answer to God’s promises. We too disobey God, but Jesus took God’s judgment for our sin upon Himself. Jesus changes our hearts, brings us into God’s presence, and keeps us there.

1. Sin Causes Separation: God had done so many good things for the Israelites. He had rescued the Israelites from slavery in Egypt and had taken care of them in a new land. He made a covenant (a promised to be their God) with the people of Israel. Even though God loved them like a father, the Israelites forgot about God. They acted in the same way as the nations who did not know and love God. They worshiped things that were not God, and they did exactly what God told them not to do. Israel had a history of disobeying God. Their sin was separating them from God.

2. Israel Doesn’t Repent: After the tribes of Israel split into the Northern Kingdom and Southern Kingdom, God sent prophets to warn the people to stop doing evil things. Over the course of 200 years, the prophets Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, Amos, and Hosea spoke to Israel and warned them. The prophets told them that bad things would happen if they did not obey God, but Israel did not listen God. In fact, they sinned even more! God called for Israel to repent and turn back to Him, but they didn’t. Although they wouldn’t repent, God was very patient with the Israelites. He delayed their punishment because He is gracious and compassionate. Still, God knew His people would not love Him with all their hearts.

3. Israel go into Exile: Finally, God had had enough. He loved His people too much to let them continue in their sin and rebellion. Hoshea was the king of Israel, and he did evil things like the kings before him. So God punished the people of Israel by letting their enemies from Assyria take over. The people of Assyria and the people of Israel did not get along at all. Assyria’s army was bigger and stronger than Israel’s army. The King of Assyria attacked Israel. He threw King Hoshea into prison and captured Israel’s capital city of Samaria. The Assyrians sent the Israelites into exile (forced the people to leave the city/home). The Northern Kingdom of Israel was destroyed and the people were scattered, just as God had said it would be in His warning. (See 1 Kings 14:15.)

REVIEW QUESTIONS:
1. What is covenant? Answer: a promise from God

2. Which prophets tried to warn Israel to repent from their evil deeds? Answer: Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, Amos, and Hosea

3. What does the word exile mean? Answer: to be forced to leave your city or home.
TASK: Say this prayer with your family: “Lord God, help us trust You and Your timing. Help us obey You out of love. If we disobey, help us to repent quickly. Give us courage to share the gospel with everyone we meet. Thank You for sending Jesus to take our punishment and give us new life. We love You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hosea, Prophet to Israel (Unit 14, Session 1) Kids Video

TOPIC: Hosea, Prophet to Israel

BIBLE PASSAGES: The book of Hosea

KEY PASSAGE: 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance”
STORY POINT: God is faithful to His people even when they do not love Him.
BIBLE BASIS: God used Hosea’s unfaithful wife to show the people of Israel that they were unfaithful to Him. Even when God’s people worship false idols, He is ready to forgive those who turn back to Him. God’s love is deep, and it never gives up. He goes after His people and loves them back to Himself.

1. Hosea the Prophet: Hosea was a prophet (a person chosen to speak for God and to guide the people of God) to the Northern Kingdom of Israel for at least forty years. God sent Hosea to tell Israel of God’s hatred toward sin and of His coming judgment. (See Hos. 4:1,6.) God also sent Hosea to bring a message of love—a love that never gives up. (See Hos. 11:7-9.) To get the message across to the Israelites, God used Hosea’s own life to show Israel what a never-gives-up kind of love looks like.

2. Hosea’s Unfaithful Wife: God wanted to send a message to His people. So God gave instructions to the prophet Hosea to marry a woman who will not be faithful to him and be a father to her children. God was telling Hosea to do something very difficult. It’s hard to love someone who doesn’t love you back! But Hosea obeyed God and he married a woman named Gomer. Hosea loved Gomer as his wife, even though he knew she was not faithful. She had three children by other men, and this filled Hosea with grief! But God used Hosea’s life to show His people in Israel what God’s love for them was like. Hosea’s wife would love other men instead of Hosea, just like the people of Israel loved and worshiped other gods instead of the one true God.

3. God’s Unending Love: Gomer was not faithful to Hosea and she often ran away. In the same way, God’s people turned away from Him. They worshiped false gods. God told Hosea to go after his wife. So Hosea found Gomer and paid a high price to get her back. Gomer had not loved her husband like a wife should, but Hosea loved her anyway. God gave Hosea a love that would never give up. God wanted the people of Israel to understand that they were like Gomer. The Israelites did not love God like they should, but God loved Israel anyway. Just like Hosea paid a high price to get back his wife who did not love him, God had a plan to get His people back no matter the cost. God paid a high price—the life of His Son, Jesus—to bring them back to Himself.
REVIEW QUESTIONS:
1. What is a prophet? Answer: a person chosen to speak for God and to guide the people of God.
2. What was Hosea’s wife name? Answer: Gomer
3. How did God’s people turn away from Him? Answer: They worshiped false gods.
TASK: Say this prayer with your family: “Lord God, thank You for Your perfect faithfulness and unending love. Give us courage and strength to obey You even when the world around us tries to pull us away from You. Use us in Your plan to spread the truth of the gospel all around the world. Help us to obey You and remain faithful. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Hosea’s relationship with Gomer reminds us of God’s relationship with the people of Israel and with us. Even though God’s people are unfaithful…

Jonah, The Prophet to Nineveh

TOPIC: Jonah, Prophet to Nineveh

BIBLE PASSAGES: The book of Jonah

KEY PASSAGE: 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance”

STORY POINT: God loves all people and showed mercy to the Ninevites.

BIBLE BASIS: Jesus is greater than Jonah. (Matt. 12:41) Jesus came calling all sinners to repentance. He submitted to God’s will with joy and laid down His own life for our sins. God shows His mercy in the gospel, forgiving those who trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior. God sends us out, like Jonah, to share the good news of salvation

1. Jonah the Prophet: Jonah lived during the time Jeroboam II was king over Israel. Jonah was a prophet— a person chosen to speak for God and to guide the people of Israel. Jonah is best known as the man who was swallowed by a big fish when he tried to run away from God, but his story continues beyond the fish. Although he didn’t want to admit it, Jonah knew all along that God is “a gracious and compassionate God” (John 4:2b). Jonah’s story really centers around the compassion of God, not only for the people of Israel but for people throughout the earth—even Israel’s worst enemies!

2. The evil city of Nineveh: Nineveh was the capital of Assyria, and the rulers of Nineveh were very evil and cruel. That was the very reason God called Jonah to go to them: “Their evil has come up before me” (Jonah 1:2). Jonah didn’t want to go to Nineveh, so he disobeyed God by running away. Jonah quickly discovered that no one can flee from God’s presence. (Ps. 139:9-10) Through a storm and some time in the belly of a fish, God got Jonah’s attention, and Jonah finally went to Nineveh. Unlike Jonah, we must remember to always obey God because He made us, He loves us, and His plans are good.

3. Nineveh Repents: For three days, Jonah walked around the city of Nineveh. His message to the people was brief: “In forty days Nineveh will be demolished!” (Jonah 3:4) The people of Nineveh heard the words of Jonah and immediately repented—to turn away from evil, and turn back to God. Even the king repented, so God decided not to destroy Nineveh. “Jonah was greatly displeased and became furious” (Jonah 4:1) with God’s decision, but God rebuked Jonah—to express strong disapproval. God used a dying plant to try and teach Jonah a lesson. God said, “You cared about the plant, but you did
not take care of it or make it grow. It only lasted one day. Nineveh is a big city with thousands of people. I created them and care about them.” At the end of this story, we don’t know for sure if Jonah really understood God’s love for sinners.
REVIEW QUESTIONS:
1. What is a prophet? Answer: a person chosen to speak for God and to guide the people of Israel.
2. Why should we obey God? Answer: We should obey God because He made us, He loves us, and His plans are good.
3. What is the meaning of the word repent? Answer: to turn away from evil, and turn back to God
TASK: Say this prayer with your family: “Lord, thank You for loving us even while we are dead in sin. Help us see Your love and be transformed by it each day. Give us courage and compassion for the lost. Fill us with Your Spirit so we can obey You out of love. Amen.”

[06/07/20]   Children's Church LIVE Online Teaching
June 7, 2020

Dear Parents: Elder Fred and Sister Erica Kirksey, directors of Children's Church LIVE, along with our other ministries at the Bible Way Church of Atlas Road, are staying compliant with social distancing guidelines. Since we are not having Children's Church services in the buildings, we would still like to ensure that we stay connected and continue to provide the Word of God to our kids. Below, we have included a lesson summary for Sunday, June 7, 2020. We are praying for and with you all.

Living In Victory Every-day (LIVE)
TOPIC: Elijah and Elisha Review
BIBLE PASSAGES: 2 Kings

KEY PASSAGE: Isaiah 42:8 “I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to anyone else, nor share my praise with carved idols.

STORY POINT: There is one true God who alone deserves worship because of who He is and what He has done.

BIBLE BASIS: God does not share glory with false gods or idols. Any tendency to worship other things or people—like money, fame, power, or celebrities—is sin. God created the world and only He loved us by sending Jesus to rescue us.

SUMMARY: During the month of May, Children’s Church LIVE learned about two of God’s prophets, Elijah and Elisha. Our series consisted of the four sessions, outlined below:

REVIEW: Please review the lessons, scriptures, and videos about Elijah and Elisha.

TASK: Print and complete the attached activity sheets to help enhance your understanding of this month’s online lessons. We miss you all and cannot wait to worship together again. Until then, stay safe and remember to Live In Victory Every-day (LIVE)!

Elisha and the Army

TOPIC: Elisha and the Army
BIBLE PASSAGES: 2 Kings 6
KEY PASSAGE: Isaiah 42:8" “I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to anyone else, nor share my praise with carved idols."
STORY POINT: God protected Elisha with an invisible army.
BIBLE BASIS: This story in 2 Kings 6 reveals that the world is not limited to what is seen. God is always with us, even though we can’t see Him. Jesus came to earth so people could see God. (See Col. 1:15.) God protects us from sin and death when we trust in Jesus.

1. Elisha the successor: As a reminder, being a successor meant that Elisha would be a prophet to Israel after Elijah. After Elijah was taken to heaven in a whirlwind, his successor Elisha continued Elijah’s work as a prophet to Israel. God used him, like Elijah, to perform miracles like multiplying the oil of a poor widow, raising a Shunammite woman’s son from the dead, purifying a poisoned pot of stew, and more.

2. Aram, the enemy of Isreal: At this time, Israel was ruled by King Joram. The land of Aram to the northeast was ruled by King Ben-hadad. Aram was an enemy of Israel and waged war against the people. Each time the king of Aram made plans to attack Israel, God revealed the plans to Elisha and he alerted Israel’s king so Israel could thwart their enemy’s plans. When Aram’s king discovered Elisha was to blame, he was determined to kill God’s prophet and sent an army to surround the place where Elisha was hiding.

3. Elisha vs. Aram’s Army: Elisha’s servant saw the enemy army and was afraid, but Elisha could see something the servant couldn’t see: an army of the Lord outnumbering the enemy army and ready to protect Elisha. Elisha told his servant, “Don’t be afraid. Our army outnumbers their army.” The servant was confused because he only saw the Aramean army. Then Elisha prayed, “LORD, open my servant’s eyes and let him see.” So God opened the servant’s eyes, and he saw horses and chariots of fire—the army of the LORD! Then Elisha prayed again and God blinded the enemy army. Elisha led them to Samaria where the king of Israel could have killed them. Instead, Elisha told the king to feed the men and send them home. Those raiders did not come into Israel’s land again.
REVIEW QUESTIONS:
1. What does it mean for Elisha to be Elijah’s successor? Answer: Elisha would be a prophet to Israel after Elijah
2. What is the name of Aram’s King? Answer: King Ben-hadad
3. How did God protect Elisha from the enemy (Aram’s Army)? Answer: God protected Elisha with an invisible army and God blinded the enemy army.

TASK: Say this prayer with your family: “Father God, thank You for sending your son, Jesus, to save us. You are good, and You are holy. We know that we don’t always love You the way we should. Let us see the sin in our lives and repent of it. Lord, also help us to trust in Your protection even when we can’t see it. We want to love You more and obey You each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
