“There shall not be found in you one who passes his son or his daughter through the fire, one that uses divination, an observer of clouds, or one divining, or a whisperer of spells, or a magic charmer, or one consulting mediums, or a spirit-knower, or one inquiring of the dead. For all doing these things are an abomination to Jehovah. And because of these filthy acts Jehovah your God is dispossessing these nations before you.” (Deu 18:10-12)
A robe is not a cape perhaps but we believe that the very Romans that mocked our Lord wore capes and we like to use a cape as a example in our programs of just how Christ was treated. Jesus taught us to be HUMBLE. A Real Hero has a heart for others and is humble, not one who dresses up to impress, or has power from such a outfit. The Power comes from GOD!
ROBES and CAPES are not the same thing?
A Cape can be used to describe any sleeveless outer garment, such as a poncho, but usually it is a long garment that covers only the back half of the wearer, fastening about the neck.
A robe is a loose-fitting outer garment. A robe is distinguished from a cape or cloak by the fact that it usually has sleeves.
The blood-stained robes of the Lord symbolize His punishment of the nations (Isa 63:3; Rev 19:13). When Christ returns He will wear a robe with the words “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORD” written upon it (Rev 19:16).
People in the Bible often tore their robes as an expression of grief, repentance, and shock (2 Sam 15:32; Job 1:20; 2:12; Ezra 9:3, 5). King David’s virgin daughters wore robes of many colors which became rare symbols of the purified Church approaching Christ as a virgin bride (2 Sam 13:18-19; Psa 45:14). After being raped by her half-brother Amnon, David’s daughter Tamar put ashes on her head and tore her many-colored robe in a poignant expression of her grief at the loss of her honor. Royal robes were laid aside and replaced with sackcloth and trembling when nations realized that the wrath of God was near (Jonah 3:6; Ezek 26:16).
Three different robes have their place in the Passion story. The most famous is the scarlet or purple robe used in the Mocking of Christ and the Ecce Homo [Latin for “Behold the Man”] (Mt 27:28-31; John 19:2-5; Mk 15:16-20). Purple robes, because of their costly dye, were worn by Greek and Midianite rulers (Judg 8:26). Roman soldiers wore scarlet robes. The scarlet robe placed on Christ was probably one of the soldier’s cast-off rags. After flogging Jesus, the Roman soldiers placed this robe on Him and offered Him mock worship along with a crown of thorns and a reed scepter. When they were finished with their game, Pilate brought the bleeding Jesus out to the Jewish mob still wearing His “kingly” attire and announced “Behold the Man,” possibly hoping, even at this late stage, to invoke some pity in the crowd for the man he believed innocent (John 19:5). Since the mob still demanded His death, Christ’s own clothes were put on Him and the Savior began His journey to Calvary (Mt 27:31).

In the doorway stood a man in a black cape. He vanished when several other … One character in the play wore a cape, but he was elsewhere at the time…Harry Potter and his black cape? cape that makes her look like a cross between a nurse and a Greek goddess. … He used various occult texts in developing his rituals, … Discriptions of capes from a company
Ritual Cape Earth has Mother Gaia holding a cornucopia of fruit and vegetables, surrounded by her consorts the Green Man spirit of vegetation and the Horned God spirit of the animal nature.

Cosmic Alchemy Cape has 12 signs of the zodiac, suns and moons, stars and comets, a large symbol of eternity over a double spiral. Creative Magic Happens! Its not the color but what a cape has represented throughout the ages and even today. The Lord instructs us ” Lead us not into temptation” why should we as Christians even influence such things to our children.
Why we don’t use capes in our program. First of all JESUS our top Hero never wore a cape and the very idea of capes go hand in hand with halloween and costumes, vampires and dark characters, wicca, demons, the founder and member’s of the Satanic church also wears capes. It’s not that a cape is a bad thing, we want to teach children that the HERO lives inside of each of them and they don’t need to dress or wear anything to be a real hero. This is also a worldly way to look at a super hero. So why should we even try to introduce unbiblical dress to our children. It what is on the INSIDE not what they wear on the outside!

“Gideon”, said the voice. He moved over his wheat and stood very still, “Who wants Gideon? Then the mighty voice sounded again. “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of Valor!”. A quality of a real Hero. Like all our programs the Hero Academy, Master’s Call Music Camp, The Lighthouse of Life VBS all can be tied in together. Below is our Christmas Program that you can use. Notice the woman in the rocking chair reading. This goes with our theme in the HERO ACADEMY about Rocking Chair stories.

Other Publisher’s also have used this game show idea recently in 2009 and plan to use a HERO type program in 2010.
The Hero Academy is a 5 day program with a grauation set on a Sunday at your church or another weekly evening. The graduation is a very important part of this program so please take time and plan it accordingly. The balloon release is for the 5th day of the program but also if graduation is done on a evening it is recommended that you consider doing the prayer balloon release at that graduation and perhaps even have the graduation outside. It should be a serious time but yet one of fun and excietment with a sense of achievement for the cadets [children]. Many children today come from broken homes and have low self esteem. We want to build them up not perform.
Can you ever remember in your life a time when children are being attacked, abused and murdered, not just by adults but children. It is time we go back to the enemy’s camp and take back what we have allowed him to take from us. Prayer out of school, compromise on values and morals, getting caught up in the same lie that was spoken in the garden. Children learn by what they are taught, and that is how they grow up and live as adults. The Rocking Chair stories are told by a teacher as the children gather around in front of the chair. The rocking chair has been a tradition for reading throughout time. It is a pillar of learning as I like to put it. Click on the woman below to read about why I use the Rocking Chair.
The goals of the Hero Academy VBS are: To Train children what a real hero is, their qualities, the laws they follow [The 10 commandments], where they recieve real power from, God and Prayer, about the real enemy of a Hero, about others not self, about how faith replaces fear and the shield of faith, the tools of a hero, about water a necessary for life both physical and spiritual, baptism, communion, RESPECT for each other and others, respect for adult heroes, about how a hero worships and praises the ultimate hero Jesus Christ. This program was authored with those who had a very limited budget for a VBS. You can change your program according to your funds. The shirt below is one that the children make themselves and wear at the graduation. Notice the hand print which is there own and te words ” Love the tool of a REAL HERO” must be painted on the shirt. This requires the help of adults. Some churches with funds available have the shirts printed up “Love the tool of a REAL HERO and then on the third day have the children place their hand print on it. White t shirts can be donated by members of your church or community, go to your local K mart or Walmart and ask for donations.

Just like any workman a Hero takes his tools from his hero tool box and places them upon his tool belt. Some of the key tools are, The Bible, The Laws, Prayer, Love, Power, Examples, Sacrifice for others..
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
The Logo of the HERO ACADEMY You make the giant shield out of cardboard and place them on the wall in your classroom or where you are teaching the program. Ribbons are tied from the bottom of the shield as cadet teams accomplish tasks that are set for them to do. More details are in the lesson plans after you sign up.
You have heard the saying garbage in…garbage out. Well the GOD WE serve never made Junk. But in today’s world we have allowed the junk to fill their minds. What one time was a real HERO today is replaced by sports figures on drugs, comic book characters that make their way into video’s, movies that are far from the truth and the list goes on and on. The one time family, is now broken because we simply have given way to compromise, have pulled GODS STANDARDS down to fit our own needs, when we should REACH UP TO GOD”S STANDARDS.
It is the pollution of the world that goes into our children that brings change. So lets together get back to the basics. Yes RESPECT for each other, for GOD, our Parents, for life. The BIBLE, we break down into a little saying below. Internal brings Eternal. This program is not candy coated about a journey to a distant land on a pirate ship, or flying around as a super hero for God, or searching for a lost tressure it is written around things that we have allowed the Devil to take away from us and our children. Why children seem to be as I say ‘unleashed’ unrestricted, is because they have no RESPECT. RESPECT is a key to this program. And the guidelines in the ACADEMY like setting must be lifted up with the serious attitude. This vacation BIBLE School program is by no means boaring, it is fun and filled activities which move along each day to the point there seems to be not enough time. BUT if you are looking for another VBS where children just ‘play’ and follow themes of the world this program is not for your church. For it is up to us as leaders to establish a foothold, to take the ground back. Let us replace the FEAR factor with the FAITH factor.
One of the most greatest Dangers we face today
How do children today view a Hero? Just look at the video games they play. The movies they watch even the T.V. series Hero. But the qualities are they are learning are they really that of a real hero? Does the hero kill the bad guy always? Jesus fought evil with love. One of the most recent Games that both children and adults are playing is called GUITAR HERO. Please take some time and read about this game.
“…For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” -Romans 16:18
