Break the glass ceiling with this wonderful hand made version of a classic magical effect.
It's impossible. The perspex panel is solid, and yet your hand passes right though it! For generations magicians have been performing impossible penetrations - Houdini walked through a wall, the magicians assistant is sawn in half. Now you can achieve the same effect - on a fraction of the budget - for the largest of audiences.
A wonderfully memorable illustration of the invisible barrier of sin that prevents us from getting into heaven. Because one day we will all be 'Knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door!'
A beautifully made wooden prop. Recommended for any performer or church, school and youth worker looking for something very special for their next show or message.
On top of the pedestal is a door frame. The two doors, back and front, are opened and a perspex panel is taken out. A couple of taps on the perspex proves that it's solid. The panel is slid back into the frame and the doors closed. The Performer, says the magic word and PUSHES their hand through the circular openings in both doors penetrating the perspex panel! The hand is removed, and the doors opened to show the unbroken perspex panel.
'I am the Way the Truth and the Life; no-one comes to the Father except through me.' John 14:6
(Introduce the Heavenly Gates saying) Lets imagine that this door way represents the famous Pearly Gates. The way into heaven. I'm working to a budget here! (Open the doors). We'd all like to enter, but there's a BIG problem. (Tap on the perspex). We can't get in! Why? Because there is an invisible barrier. We might not be able to see it, but it's certainly there. We call it sin. (Take out the perspex panel and explain what sin is. Place the panel back, close the doors. Explain how Jesus is the way into heaven and to our heavenly Father as your push your hand through the Heavenly Gates).
This magical doorway can be used as an illustration for many other messages:
I am the Gate - 'I am the gate for the sheep...Whoever enters through me will be saved.' John 10:7-9
I Stand at the Door - 'I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.' Rev 3:20
The Narrow Gate - 'You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate.' Matt 7:13
Image the look of delight on your volunteer's face, when their hand passes through the two holes and penetrates the glass! Start with a simple penetration and build it up - perhaps a wand or pencil, then a large silk hanky or streamer and finally your whole hand. Pepper your presentation with door idioms, wordplay and puns e.g. 'At death's door' 'Knocking on heaven's door' 'The girl next door' 'Get a foot in the door' 'Beating a path to your door.'
