This illusion includes three things:
- Cut and Restored Rope Instructions–Call up a volunteer to cut a rope in half. Tie to the two pieces together to show a knot in the middle. Explain that the knot is like sin that separates us from God. God is perfect and we are not. We have all sinned and are separated from God. Then cover the knot with your hand or a red silk cloth (included) that represents Jesus. Slide the knot off the rope to show that it is completely restored. In the same way, Jesus died and rose again to make a way to remove our sins and to restore our relationship with God.
- Unequal Rope Illusion–Show three separate pieces of rope, each a different size. There is a very short piece, a medium sized piece and a long piece. Fold the three pieces and when the ropes are opened out again, all three pieces are seen to be the same length! This is a perfect illusion to show that any wrong thing, no matter how big, is all sin in God’s eyes. If required, the three lengths of rope can be restored to their original sizes and passed out for examination. Another great springboard for showing that the change Jesus brings can’t be changed back.
- 25 Feet of Magician’s Rope–Use this thick soft-cored cotton rope, about 10 mm (3/8 inch) in diameter for any and all rope effects – Cut and Restored ropes, Knotting Effects, Penetrations, etc. It has a solid hefty feel, and the increased diameter makes it easy to use with rope tricks. Supplied in hanks of 25′ white. No instructions included.
