POY! SKIT GUIDELINES:

  • In a small group, participants might simply read their lines, or glance at their lines to get the idea so they can speak in their own words.
  • Most POY! skits require no practice in advance.
  • Have any small children play a brief part. Most scripts have an optional part for children, listed last under Participants.
  • Most scripts have a Narrator who should read the script beforehand to see how to keep moving the story along.
  • It is not necessary to employ costumes and objects, unless the skit recommends such.
  • It is not required to have an audience watch the skit. All present may participate.
  • Scripture and paraphrases, if any, usually appear in bold.

PARTICIPANTS:

John, who also serves as Narrator
Voice (of Jesus) Stand to one side, read slowly and loudly.
Angel

Prompter (Optional). Prompter shouts a brief line and Companions repeat it.

Companions (Optional): children and all adults that want to take part. Make sure Companions know who the Prompter is, and that they are to repeat Prompter’s words.

SCRIPT:

John

I’m the apostle John. My trip to glory was quite startling. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day and heard a deafening voice like a trumpet blast.

Voice

(Shout, speaking slowly.) Come up, and write what you see.

John

Oh! I see one whose eyes are flames, His voice like the roaring ocean breakers. A two-edged sword comes from His mouth! His face is shining like the brightest sun! Oh! It’s too much for me. I can’t help but fall at the feet of the Lord like a dead man.

Voice

Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, the living One; I was dead, and am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.

John

I hear the loud voice of many angels, myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands!

Angel

Honor and glory to the Lamb that was slain!

Prompter & Companions

Honor and glory to the Lamb that was slain!

John

I see a huge crowd that no one could count, from all nations, tribes and languages,  standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They are clothed in white robes, and shout praises to God on the throne, and to the Lamb.”

Prompter & Companions

Glory to God and to the Lamb!

Angel

John, do you know who these are, in the white robes?

John

No, my lord, but you do.

Angel

They’ve come out of great suffering and have washed their robes in the Lamb’s blood. They hunger and thirst no more, for the Lamb on the throne is now their shepherd.

John

I see a new heaven and a new earth, and the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.

Voice

Behold, God is dwelling among men. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there’ll be no more death, mourning, crying or pain; these have all passed away. No sin will ever enter here; only those whose names are in the Lamb’s book of life. They will see His face, and bear His name.

Prompter & Companions

Glory! Glory to God!

Voice

It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, practice righteousness forever; and the one who is holy, be holy forever.

DISCUSS:

What will take the place of sunlight in our eternal home?

What other conditions in heaven will be utterly different from those of earth as it is today?

Why would heaven cease to be heaven if God let sin enter there?

What will probably be our greatest joy in heaven, far surpassing all else?

(Good answer: seeing Jesus face to face, and praising God for His redemption.)
