Take your audience around the world with this self working National Flag card trick.
Ideal for school assemblies - with the opportunity to share facts about different countries - teachers love that!
Perfect for services - the chosen flag leads you seamlessly into dozens of different stories from the Bible.
And best of all the deck does all the work for you - leaving you to focus on your presentation and message.
And exclusive to Mission Magic.
The magician displays a deck of cards, and shows that the backs of the cards each feature a different national flag. The King of Spades has the Brazilian flag. The 10 of Clubs the UK flag. 52 different cards - 52 different flags.
A spectator freely chooses a card and turns it over to reveal their randomly selected flag...in this case it's the Lebanese flag.
Now for the big reveal. The magician reaches into his pocket and pulls out a ...stone! A stone all the way from Lebanon!
Not convinced...the magician shows the A4 envelope with the prediction - the Lebanese flag is printed on the inside. He pulls out the A4 laminated card and...the Lebanese flag is there but one of many different flags printed on the card - that's cheating!
Ah - but then the magician flips over the card to show the Lebanese flag indelibly printed on the back! WOW! Real magic!
And for the kicker ending the magician points to his lapel...he's wearing a button badge with the chosen flag on it. Was it really a free choice or was the spectator subtly influenced? Who knows!
And now with everyone's attention you move seamlessly into your message.
Everything you need for an international magic trick!
101 DIFFERENT BIBLICAL PRESENTATIONS
We've packed our 20 page booklet full of ideas for different messages based on the flags on the cards.
The selected flag is full of Biblical links and symbolism.
Remember, you already know the national flag they are going to pick - so your message is ready to go.
Paul Morley suggested the following presentation. Explain that it's interesting that they picked the flag of Lebanon. ‘The white and red in the flag reminds us that Jesus died on the cross, so we could be forgiven for our sins, and made as white as snow.
The flag also has a tree in it. Did you know that the Bible is full of different trees. In the book of Genesis there is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In the New Testament, the tree of curse that Jesus died upon on the cross of Calvary. The tree of life in the book of Revelation , that those who become friends of Jesus will one day eat as they live in the eternal city with Him.’
Alternatively pose the question - which is God's favourite country? Of course, He doesn't have one because He loves the whole world equally!
