Read 1 Thess. 5:19-21 and 2 Pet. 1:19 for this lesson.
How do your parents feel when you don’t listen to them? Did you know that a lot of people don’t listen to God?
God sent prophets to His people for thousands of years. Listening to the special messages He gave them protected them from Satan and the many others who tried to hurt them.
But God’s people kept turning away from the Lord. They turned to their sins. Eventually, they stopped studying God’s prophecies. They stopped listening to the prophets He sent them. They even hurt them! Soon, many of God’s people didn’t even listen to God.
Many people today don’t listen to God. They don’t even study the special messages He gave them about Jesus coming back.
But God still loves His people. He wants all of us to be ready for the day when Jesus comes back. So He’s going to send His prophets around the entire world. He’s about to tell everyone (even you!) to get ready. Jesus is coming! And He’s coming soon! We have to be ready to listen to His prophets!
Ask God to help you listen to your parents. It’s just like how God wants you to listen to Him and His prophets!
