THE CLASSIC EFFECT
This presentation has entertained audiences for generations. The performer shows a small silk handkerchief and pushes it into his fist. Has it vanished? Even better! Instantly, the handkerchief is transformed into a solid egg.
Breaking the rules of magic, the magician shows that the egg has a hole at the back, and the silk goes inside. Easy when you know how!
A volunteer is invited up and performs the trick - hey presto - he's an instant magician! But when the magician performs the trick again he cracks his egg on the side of a glass...spilling out the whites and yolk. Yes, it's now a REAL egg! The audience will be eggs-static!
Push the red hanky into your hand – this colour represents Jesus death on Good Friday. His sacrifice for all of us. Push the white hanky into your fist. This represents both the grave clothes found in the empty tomb and the white clothing of the angel that announced his resurrection. ‘He’s not here.’ Show the egg. Explain that the egg represents the promise of new life at Easter. Reach over and pick up a glass. At this point switch the egg for a real one. Now crack the egg into the glass explaining that Gods promise is no trick!
Use the white silk hanky with black spots to represents our sinful nature. Push silk into hand explaining that God invites us into his Loving hand, and forms us into a new creation in Christ (show the egg). Now, the Lord sees us a 'good egg', forgiven by Christ. But although I have tricked you, God will never deceive you. Through God we have a new life, a new beginning...and that's NO YOLK! (crack egg)
- Fake vs Real Christians
An object lesson just using the hollow egg. Some claim to be a Christian, but they can still feel hollow and empty inside - like this fake egg They go to church but they're not living for Jesus in their daily lives. When we put our faith in God fully, He fills us with the Holy Spirit and gives us New Life. Switch the fake egg for a real one and crack it into a glass.
You can add to the routine by dressing your helper up, perhaps as a chicken or the Easter Bunny. You can also incorporate all your favourite bits of business including silly wands, magic words and more.
