The pictures that follow may seem silly or out of place in a discussion about Bible prophecy, but believe me, your Sunday School students will be intrigued and receptive to prophecy laid out in this way!
"The Scarlet Thread" describes the songs which follow the unfolding of the gospel story, as details become clear in scripture.
This story includes the history of the Jewish people and God's preparation of the coming of the Messiah. But it starts long before then, in eternity past.
God has not laid out His plan like a textbook full of mathematical formulas! A MOSAIC is a better description of how He has told His story in the Bible.
A mention of the Seed of the woman here, in Genesis 3... The promise to Abraham that he would be a blessing to all the nations, there in Genesis 12... Judah and the scepter of rulership mentioned much, much later... Bethlehem, among the clans of Judah, named as the city from which will come the ruler whose origins are from old, from ancient times.
This song laments the loss of Paradise, and the coming of sorrow and pain and death. But there is hope at the end!
How does the story of Esther fit into the preparation for the coming of the Messiah?
It was yet another of the Evil One's attempts to disrupt God's plan.
Hidden in the book are layers upon layers. Things are happening in those pages, that cannot easily be seen!
This strangely-named song is about the gospel message.
This message was not dreamed up by man; it has an origin outside of time and space.
Your Sunday School kids may find the music and lyrics of this strange song compelling!
But WHY has God arranged things this way, making it so we "see through a glass darkly?"
This song tells the story of mankind's redemption, all the way from The Fall, when they believed a lie.
I Peter 1:9-12:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
It is not strange, if we are engaged in a great cosmic battle, as Paul says in Ephesians 6:12. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
This song highlights the names of the first ten ancestors of Jesus, way back in the first few chapters of Genesis.
Because God put a message into their names...
Over thousands of years, God planned the line of David for the lineage of the Messiah, who would come to rule the earth, but first, to die for all His people, both Jew and Gentile.
Satan and all his host did not understand this.

Hi, I'm Dana! (Say that like "Anna".) I'm the owner of Music-for-Music-Teachers.com, and this newer site, SingTheBibleStory.com.
Like some of you, I've been playing the piano since early childhood, and have added a few other instruments along the way, plus an interest in arranging and composing music.
I also happen to love the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Christian worldview that portrays The Great War in the heavens, in which we here on earth are destined to be a part.
