John saw events of the latter days through revelation. This revelation can help us prepare for the second coming of the Lord. In this Come, Follow Me FHE lesson, you will learn more about the restoration of the Gospel, the continual war with satan, and becoming clean through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
The Lord needs valiant servants,
To do his work in the latter day,
Who follow the teachings of Jesus
And serve his people in a loving way.
I will be his servant
And keep my cov’nants valiantly.
I’ll stand for truth. I’ll stand for right.
The Lord can depend on me.
Activity: Show the children a piece of white paper. Then give them some markers, crayons, or pencils and allow them to draw on it. Then explain how the paper can represent our life and the markers represent sin. Then show them a new piece of paper and how we can become clean through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
Read: When we sin our lives become dirty like this paper, but Christ makes it possible for us to become clean again. When we repent we are forgiven of our sins and become like a new piece of paper.
Scripture: Read Revelation 7:9, 13–14
Ask: What does John mean when he says “made them white in the blood of the Lamb?”

Ask: What ordinance do we participate in that is symbolic of being washed clean?
Share: Tell the children about your own baptism, or a baptism you recently attended and why baptism is significant.
