Possible Viewpont: Anglican Christian

Title: The Locust Army

Objective: To teach young children about the significance of the locust army mentioned in Revelations 9:14 and to understand how we can have faith and trust in God’s protection.

Introduction: Today we are going to learn about an interesting and powerful part of the Bible called the locust army. In the book of Revelations, it talks about a locust army that has a special meaning for us as Christians.

Scripture: “It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, ‘Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.’ ” – Revelations 9:14


1. What are locusts? Locusts are insects that can come in large swarms and cause a lot of damage to crops and plants.

2. In the Bible, when it talks about a locust army, it’s not talking about real insects. It’s actually a way of describing a powerful and scary army that can bring destruction.

3. When we read about this in the book of Revelations, it might sound scary, but as Christians, we know that God is always with us and can protect us from anything.

4. Just like how God protected the Israelites from the plagues in Egypt, we can have faith and trust in God’s protection.

5. We can pray and ask God for help when we feel scared or worried. We can also remember that God is in control and will always take care of us.

Activity: Draw a picture of a locust army on one side of a piece of paper and then on the other side, draw a picture of God protecting you from the locust army.

Prayer: Dear God, thank you for always being with us and protecting us. Help us to have faith and trust in you, especially when we feel scared or worried. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Conclusion: Today we learned about the locust army in the book of Revelations and how we can have faith and trust in God’s protection. Just like how God saved the Israelites, he will always take care of us. Let’s remember to pray and trust in God no matter what happens.
