Impenetrable is the Best Selling trick at 2018 Blackpool Magic Convention. Bought by 100s of professional magicians from around the world.
This is an impossible 'pen'etration. The perfect prop for a powerful biblical message as the pen and tube form a white cross,
Use it as a close up trick with a small group or with a volunteer on stage in front of 100s. Ideal for school assemblies, church services, youth groups and parties.
The performer pushes a pen through a hole in the side of a short plastic tube, creating a white cross. A steel ball is dropped into the tube and stops where the pen is. The performer says a magic word and this time the ball comes out the bottom, of the tube, having penetrated the pen!
Everything can then be handed out for examination.
A great trick to baffle your friends and family. Try as they might, they can't do you can do!
A pen, tube and ball is all you need for an incredible and baffling effect.
GOSPEL PRESENTATION 1
The performer picks up the tube and holds it vertically. A steel ball is held at the mouth of the tube. ‘What happens if I were to let it go?' The ball falls through and out the other end.’‘It’s the law of gravity. Now if the tube was filled with water would the ball fall through it? Yes, but more slowly.’ The performer takes a pen and pushes it through the middle of the tube. ‘What would happen now?’ The ball is dropped into the tube. ‘It’ll stops half way. A solid ball cannot pass through a solid pen. It’s a law of nature.’
‘The Bible talks of miracles, where the laws of nature are broken. Jesus walked on water! Imagine seeing something impossible happening.’ Now the Performer drops the ball through the tube and it passes through the pen and out of the bottom. ‘If you saw the impossible happen, would you believe it. Imagine that you saw the impossible happened and told other people. Would anyone believe you?’
The pen is pushed through so a cross is formed. ‘Image if you saw a man crucified and raised from the dead. Would people believe you. That’s exactly we find in the Bible, eyewitness accounts of the death and resurrection of Jesus. With God the impossible happens.’
GOSPEL PRESENTATION 2
Push the pen into the tube and ask what happens when you drop the ball in. The ball stops. The pen is an impenetrable barrier (excuse the pun).
Explain that it’s the same with us and God. ‘There is an impenetrable barrier, called sin. It stops us from having a relationship with god. But Jesus changed that. Our sin can be forgiven the barrier can be removed.’ The ball now passes though the pen and falls out the end of the tube. ‘It seems impossible but it’s true. We can pass from death to life.' Drop the ball through again. 'We can pass from a short life on earth to eternal life in heaven.’ Adjusted the pen so it forms a cross and explain how the Jesus’ death on the cross removed the barrier of sin and made a relationship with God possible.
A fun close up puzzle to share with friends and colleagues. You can make the ball pass through the pen, but no one else can.
Use it for a 'magician in trouble' presentation. The ball stops when you drop it in the tube, but it falls all the way through when the volunteer drops the ball. It appears the volunteer is the real magician!
Explain how Houdini famously walked through a solid wall. Unfortunately your budget only stretches to a ball passing through a pen!
