HISTORY = HIS STORY! We’ve got the BIG PICTURE of history straight from The Creator! Let’s share it with our kids! This is how one creative grandfather takes on the responsibility to teach each of his grandchildren the timeline of human history since Creation—God’s way. This is sweet little Maddi with her Grandpa after her day of fun.
“Life is like an enormous jigsaw puzzle. If we only had the atheistic evolutionist’s view of where we came from we would have confusion and gloom because there is no guiding picture. There is only a mess of theories that change regularly at the will of the many scientists who keep shuffling the pieces around…. Thankfully God has given us His very clear picture of where we came from and how we can know Him and His will for our lives…. It’s easy when somebody gives you the picture to follow!”
This is a great idea for our kids… and home school and Sunday School kids too. To give them THE BIG PICTURE OF HISTORY firmly grounded in Creation, to show them that we can trust God’s Word implicitly. Whilst we can’t start with a special date and a cooked breakfast for our Compassion kids like this Grandpa does :) we can talk to them about these great resources (and his instructions) so they can make their own timeline of world history from God’s perspective. I like the way he gets each child to add their own details to the timeline. :)

Old Testament Timeline for kids using fun little cartoons to give kids an idea of how different events relate to each another… “It doesn’t include every prophet and king and favorite story (because otherwise it would be 10′ long!), but it provides a big picture, so when you’re reading your favorite story you can point and say, “this happened here.”” in colour or to colour; free printable

The World: Born in 4004 BC? (Answers in Genesis) James Ussher (1581-1656) had logical and historically valid reasons for his calculated date of creation; and this date was widely accepted until people began to believe in ideas such as billions of years of Earth history. In other words, they started trusting in the latest secular findings based on fallible dating methods, instead of the only absolutely reliable method—consulting the history book provided by the Eyewitness account (the infallible Word of God).
Why Two Family Lines of Jesus (by Dr Chuck Missler) Ever found the two family trees of Jesus confusing and wondered why Joseph is in both of them? Here’s why. The law of Moses permitted inheritance through the daughter if no sons were available and she married within her tribe. Refer Numbers 27. Mary’s father apparently had no sons. Mary married within her tribe. A virgin birth through Mary gave Jesus legal title to the throne of David, bypassing the blood curse put on Solomon’s line (after Jeconiah – see Jeremiah 22:30) after God got fed up with the lot of them. God is SOOO clever! I actually did an article about this for my kids. It is also available in French (number 2). You are welcome to download it for free.
