Students at Olivet Academy in New York City started a new Bible study book named, “Finding God’s promises” published by the Positive Action Bible Curriculum.
Past three weeks, students learned about “Trusting God’s Promises” and “The Promise of Heaven” as their lessons. Students were so excited when they learned that God promised beautiful heaven for all the believers in Christ, and the Bible describes it so wonderfully. More than anything else, Heaven is the place where no tears or sorrow exist as God promised in Revelation 21:4.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4 ESV
After they learned about heaven, all students drew a picture of heaven with their own imagination based on the Bible study. Some students drew a cross in heaven. When the teacher asked why there is cross in heaven, they answered that it meant Jesus is exalted high in heaven. Each student also drew themselves in their picture, wishing that they can be also in heaven.
In the second quarter, these young students will learn how to find books in the Bible with sword drill practices and memorize one verse each week on top of their monthly passage they recite. OAC emphasizes Bible program so that the children can learn and practice their faith from when they are young.
“Train up a child in the way he should go: even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 ESV
