Mary

I am Mary, Jesus’ mother.
  Let’s go join the apostle John on the island of Patmos
when Christ took him up in the spirit to see visions of the future.

Prompter & Echoes

Grand events in heaven!

John

I see Jesus! His head and hair are white as wool, like snow;
his eyes are like flames of fire. I fall at his feet like a dead man.

Prompter & Echoes

Terrifying!

Michael

Do not fear, John. Listen to what Jesus is saying:
“I am the first and the last, I am the living One; I was dead,
and now I am alive evermore; I have the keys of death.”

Prompter & Echoes

He conquers death!

John

Oh! Who is this mighty one who speaks to me?

Michael

Do not fear, John. I am the Archangel Michael.
Write what you see, as the Lord said.

John

Words cannot express it, but I will try.
It recounts fateful events on earth, as seen from heaven.

Mary

Get ready for a rough ride!

Prompter & Echoes

Brace yourselves!

John

Lightning flashes, thunder roars, and earthquakes shake the earth.

Prompter & Echoes

Crash!

John

A lady appears in heaven, clothed with the sun.
She wears a crown of twelve stars; and is with child.
She cries out painfully in labor, about to give birth.
An enormous, frightening red dragon comes.

Mary

Help!

Prompter & Echoes

Watch out!

John

His tail sweeps away a third of the stars of heaven;
they fall to the earth, demon agents of the dragon.
The dragon faces the lady who is about to give birth,
ready to devour her child. She gives birth to a son,
who is to rule all nations with a rod of iron;
her child ascends up to God and to his throne.

Michael

The dragon chases the child’s mother, who also signifies Israel.

Mary

Help! Help!

OPTIONAL

 

     Prompter & Echoes

Form the Dragon: Prompter is the dragon’s head;
Echoes form the dragon’s tail, a single file line behind Prompter,
Echoes hold onto the person in front of them.
The dragon chases Mary, but never quite catches her.

     Mary

Run ahead of the dragon, zigzagging.
Keep stopping to let the dragon almost catch you,
and then run again.
Do this until you have run all around the room.

     Michael

Face the dragon’s head; pretend to swing a sword at it.

Prompter & Echoes

Fall down! (Fall)

Michael

You ancient, evil Dragon! You are finished!

John

Archangel Michael and his angels wage war against the dragon
and his fallen angels. Those demons fight furiously,
but God’s army throws them out of heaven.

John

The great dragon falls.
He is the old serpent who is the devil and Satan,
who deceives the world. He is flung down to the earth,
and his demonic fallen angels with him.

Michael

It’s the war of the ages,
Satan’s fallen angels against God’s holy angels!
God’s angels defeat the dragon in heavenly places,
just as Jesus defeated him on earth.

Prompter & Echoes

The greatest war of all is over!

John

A great voice in heaven thunders.

Michael

  (Loudly) Salvation, power, and the reign of Christ have come,
for our brothers’ accuser has been cast down,
he who accuses them before God day and night.

John

I see a new heaven and earth!
The first heaven and earth have passed away!

Michael

God will dwell among men, and they shall be his people,
and he will wipe away every tear from their eyes;
there will no longer be any death, weeping, or pain.
These all have passed away, forever.

John

The one sitting on the throne speaks;
I will never forget his final words. He cries,
“Look, I am making all things new.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.
I give freely to all who thirst from the spring of the water of life.”

Prompter & Echoes

Live forever in heaven!
