Dream of peaceA boy and a girl are standing on a mountain of weapons with a balloon in the shape of a heart. Around them, war is taking place. For a moment it seems as if the weapons will wipe them out too, but at the end there is peace. The boy and the girl are still there and only love remains.

Why does this film fit in with today's Bible story?

Isaiah sees in his dream how the people of all nations will melt down their weapons out of love for God, so that there will be peace and love will ultimately triumph.

It’s important to always watch the film yourself beforehand and to ask yourself:

Icebreaker - Isaiah - How many countries do you know?


This icebreaker is a playful way of getting into the Bible story of Isaiah 2

Isaiah is a prophet of God. In Isaiah's time, kings were in charge in Israel. But these kings did not always do what God wanted. Then God sent a prophet to tell the king what he was doing wrong. Kings don't like this. They don't like it when others tell them what to do. And they certainly do not like it when they do it wrong! Therefore, it was sometimes difficult to be a prophet.

Crafts idea - Isaiah - Making flags


Ideas what children can do as long as the programme has not yet started.

Suitable for children's work, where children gradually trickle in.

Isaiah is a prophet of God. In Isaiah's time, kings were in charge in Israel. But these kings did not always do what God wanted. Then God sent a prophet to tell the king what he was doing wrong. Kings don't like this. They don't like it when others tell them what to do. And they certainly do not like it when they do it wrong! Therefore, it was sometimes difficult to be a prophet.

In our Bible story today, Isaiah dreams that all the nations of the world will come to Jerusalem to honour God, listen to Him and obey Him, so that eventually there will be peace in the world.

Isaiah flags of the world

At the end of this lesson, we will pray with the children for peace. For this we need as many flags of different countries as possible. We will make them together during the walk-in activity and during the crafts.

Object lesson - Isaiah's dream - Can this dream be real?


Isaiah is a prophet of God. In Isaiah's time, kings were in charge in Israel. But these kings did not always do what God wanted. Then God sent a prophet to tell the king what he was doing wrong. Kings don't like this. They don't like it when others tell them what to do. And they certainly do not like it when they do it wrong! Therefore, it was sometimes difficult to be a prophet.

In Isaiah 2: 1-5 he gets a dream about peace, about all the nations going to Jerusalem to seek God and to listen to Him. Not just the king of Israel, but all the nations will discover what is right and wrong. They will turn their weapons into tools and there will be peace. What a beautiful dream!
