Lesson on Who is God? Ė interactive
questions with the children.
Activity associated with the lesson.
Close with prayer.
- Read through the paper Who is God? (No. CB1)
unless the lesson is read as a sermonette with the children present.
- Childrenís questions are in bold.† This is a general review of the
material covered in the study paper. Rotate asking the children the
questions with each child participating.†
Not all the questions need to be reviewed Ė it is up to the
facilitator to determine how many (which ones) should be reviewed.
††† Who has always existed?
A. †††††† God the Father.
††† What does it mean to always
A. †††††† Before time began, God was.†
He didnít need anything to give Him energy or life.† He is both eternal and immortal.
††† What do the words eternal
and immortal mean?
A. †††††† Eternal life, whether in Christ or anybody else, is totally
dependent upon the Father who alone is immortal.† Immortality means a living being cannot die.† We know from the Bible that God the Father
cannot die (1Tim. 6:16).† He alone is
immortal, but He gave immortality to Jesus Christ when he was resurrected and
He will give it to us when we are resurrected.†
Eternal is forever.† Jesus Christ
is now immortal, and the elect will become immortal, but they are not eternal
because they have a beginning.
Q4.† ††† When did time start?
A. †††††† When God began to create.
Q5.† ††† What are some of the names of God the
A. †††††† The Most High God (Mk. 5:7), Eloah (Prov. 30:4-5) Yahovih and
Yahovah of Hosts (see also SHD 3068 and
††† Who is Alpha and Omega?†
A. †††††† God.†
Q7.† ††† What does Alpha and Omega mean?
A. †††††† It is like saying A and Z Ė the beginning and the end.† These are the first and last letters of the
††† Is anyone else in the Bible
called Alpha and Omega?†
A. †††††† Yes,
in Revelation 22:16 Jesus Christ is called the Alpha and Omega, the beginning
and the end.† He is given these titles
as delegated power from God when he returns as the Morning Star.
††† Is there anything that God
A. †††††† No. 1John 3:20 tells us that God knows everything.
† Do all of the Spirit beings know
A. †††††† No.
Only God the Father knows everything.†
Even Jesus Christ told the disciples that he didnít know the day he
would return Ė only God knows what day it will be.
Q11.† † Can God make mistakes?
A. †††††† No, Matthew 5:48 tells us that God is perfect.
† What else does the Bible say is
A. †††††† Godís Law (Ps. 19:7).
† Can you think of a few other
examples of Godís characteristics?
A. †††††† God
is good (Ps. 25:8), God is love (1Jn. 4:8), God is holy (Lev. 19:2), God is
righteous (Ps. 116:5) and God is truth (Deut. 32:4).
Q14.† † What are the five centralities of God and His
Law that we talk about?
A. †††††† Holy, righteous, goodness, perfect, truth.
Has anyone ever seen God or heard
A. †††††† No (Jn. 1:18).
† If no one has ever heard Godís
voice, who then was talking to Moses?
A. †††††† The Angel of Yahovah, who later became Jesus Christ.
† Do we know what God looks like?
A. †††††† Not exactly, but the Bible does give us some hints. God is described
as unapproachable light (1Tim. 6:16). Only God lives forever! And He
lives in light that no one can come near. No human has ever seen God or ever
can see Him. God will be honoured, and His power will last forever. (CEV)
† Where does God live?
A. †††††† In
the heaven of heavens. Godís Throne is in the sides of the north from
Isaiah 14:13, and 2Corinthians 12:2 tells us it is in the third Heaven.
Q19.† † Will God always live there?
A. †††††† No,
God will come and live on Earth after the Millennium once Jesus Christ has
firmly established his government.
† What is one way we can know that
A. †††††† Look around.† Romans 1:20
tells us, ďEver since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely,
his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have
Q21.† † Who do we pray to?
A. †††††† God the Father.
† Is it ok to pray to Jesus Christ
A. †††††† No.† Jesus Christ teaches us
to pray to God the Father.† Although
Jesus Christ is called a god (elohim), he is never referred to as the One True
God, or God Almighty.
Q23. †† When we pray to God the
Father, should we pray the Lordís Prayer all together?†
A. †††††† No,
what is commonly referred to as the Lordís Prayer was a model prayer that Jesus
Christ used to teach his disciples.† He
taught them how they should pray, not that they should say the same words over
Q24.† † What about praying to Mary (more correctly called Mariam) or other
saints.† Is that ok?
A. †††††† No.
Any other object of worship such as idols, dead saints, Mary, etc. are false
gods and we should never pray to them.
Q25. †† What
Commandment would we be breaking by praying to others?
A. †††††† The First: You shall
have no other gods before me.
Q26.† † Is
Godís way of life hard?
A. †††††† Sometimes
it might seem that way.† But actually,
Godís way of life is perfect.† We must
learn to trust and obey God and know that He will protect us† (Ps. 18:30; Prov. 30:5).
Who is God?
Supplies:† Card stock or poster board (enough to make a cube for each child);
tape; markers; blue paper
Cubes: †Pre-cut white pieces of card stock or poster board to make a cube
(see pattern below). Make enough so you will have one for each child. See the
following web sites below for ideas.
Attributes of God: †You will need to complete enough so that each
child will have six.† On small pieces of
blue paper write an attribute of God with the corresponding scripture.† Place them in alphabetical order so it will
be easier to find it when the time comes.
Poster Board:† Hang a poster board near the children so they will be able to tape
their attribute on the poster board.†
Draw enough lines so that each child will have space for six attributes
and this should help them find a spot.
Have each child make a cube out of white
pre-cut paper, but leave one side open so they can place something in the
middle.† Give each child five pieces of
paper and have them write Holy, Righteous, Goodness, Perfect, Truth with one
word on each paper.† These will be
placed in the interior of the cube.†
Now, close the cube and tape it shut.
Go around the room and, one at a time, have
each child give one attribute of God.†
Find the attribute in your stack and give it to the child.† Give them the scripture in the Bible that
describes that particular attribute of God and have them write the attribute
and scripture reference on their cube while you are asking the next child for
Do this for each child six times.† If they canít think of one they can pick
from the stack.† When they have six
attributes on their cube (one on each side) have them try to remember the five
centralities that they placed inside their cube.
are finished with the cubes, have the children tape their blue pieces of paper
with the attributes on the poster so it can be displayed for the adults.
