Title: The Fifth Trumpet Sounds

Today we are going to learn about a very interesting moment in the book of Revelations in the Bible. The book of Revelations talks about the end of the world and God’s final plan for his people. In today’s lesson, we will focus on a specific passage where the fifth trumpet sounds and something very important happens.

Bible Verse:
Revelations 9:1-12 (NIV)
The Fifth Trumpet
1 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. 2 When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. 3 And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. 6 During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.

7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8 Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails, they had power to torment people for five months. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).

12 The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come.

In this passage, we learn about the fifth trumpet sounding and the release of locusts that have the power to torment people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. This can sound scary, but we must remember that God is always in control and loves us very much.

The locusts mentioned in this passage are not literal locusts, but they symbolize something. They are a symbol of the troubles and challenges that people will face in the future. It is a reminder that we must always stay close to God and have his seal on our foreheads. This means that we must have a strong relationship with God and follow his teachings so that we can be protected from the troubles that may come our way.

Even when we face difficult times, we must always remember that God is with us and will never leave us. We can pray to God and ask for his help and guidance during these times. Just like the people in the passage who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads were tormented by the locusts, we can be protected by God if we trust in him and have a strong faith.

Let’s take a moment to pray and ask God to help us stay close to him and have his seal on our foreheads so that we can be protected from troubles and challenges.

Remember, God loves us and is always there to protect us. Let’s continue to learn about God’s word and grow in our faith.

Craft Idea

Craft: Trumpet Noise Makers

– Toilet paper rolls
– Construction paper
– Tape
– Scissors
– Crayons or markers
– Decorative items (such as stickers, glitter, etc.)
– Rice or dried beans

1. Start by cutting the construction paper to fit around the toilet paper roll and then tape it in place. Encourage the children to decorate the construction paper with images or symbols related to the lesson about the fifth trumpet sounding in Revelations 9:1-12.

2. Once the toilet paper rolls are decorated, seal one end of the roll using tape.

3. Next, fill each toilet paper roll with a handful of rice or dried beans. This will create a noise-making effect when the trumpet noise makers are shaken.

4. Once the rolls are filled, seal the other end with tape.

5. Encourage the children to test out their trumpet noise makers by shaking them and creating loud noise like a trumpet.

6. After the craft is completed, have the children discuss the significance of the fifth trumpet sounding in Revelations 9:1-12 and how their noise makers can be a reminder of this lesson.

This craft activity allows the children to engage with the lesson in a fun and creative way and provides a tangible reminder of the biblical passage they’ve learned about.
