Theme: Press on

 

As believers, we are challenged to press on for the upward cause of Christ.  The show's message to believers is to recognize there will be great adversity and persecution, but as the disciples pressed on, so shall we.  To the unsaved, they clearly can hear the gospel as those who lived during the early church time.  Fresh and un-hindered by culture.  Nothing under the sun is new.  The same heresies that are being propagated today are the same as they were back then.  

 

Phil 1:21
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Theme: Be careful beloved one.  

 

Do not be wise in your own eyes and fall for every present traps of sin.  Nothing new under the sun is new.  Although the same roots of temptation abound in every culture, every generation, as believers, you have the power to overcome because He has overcome sin.  To overcome bring healing and a better knowledge of the Holy One.

Theme: Repentance, Forgiveness, and Restitution. 

 

Whether a believer, or a non-believer, jealously, selfishness, and pride are traps that is waiting to ensnare all.  Joseph’s hope and trust in God, during heartbreaking trial and disappointment, is inspirational for all people across time.  Although the account of Joseph in this production is admittedly is not claimed to be perfectly historically and theologically accurate portrayal of the true story of Joseph from the Bible, it is our hope that audiences are inspired to read Genesis for themselves to be educated and edified.


- Genesis 50:19-20

But Joseph said to them, Do not fear, for am I in the place of God? As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good

No matter your position in life, economically or socially, God has a plan for you that requires obedience and trust.  The challenge to the believer is step out in faith when you don't understand.  For the unbeliever, no one can stop or thwart the plans of God and even their attempts in the end will be used for His Glory.

 

Esther 4:14

14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?”

Theme: Saved by the sacrifice of the Lamb of God

 

One of Take 3’s most powerful performances uses an allegory to teach that throughout our past, man’s struggle is not against flesh and blood, but the ever-present forces of wickedness.  However, that battle was won at the cross where God conquered death enabling His people to have life.

 

1 Peter 2:24

And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness;

for by His wounds you were healed.
