Not pictured or portrayed: the trumpet blast preceding this gathering.

Moments pages are Spoilers Off. You Have Been Warned.

  • "In The Beginning": Michael expelling Lucifer from Heaven, starting with a blast of light from his chest-plate and wings and a hail of rocks from a nearby wall that stun Lucifer just as he's about to swing his sword.
    Michael: You have sinned against the Lord, and for that you shall be banished!
  • "Let My People Go": The parting of the Red Sea is generally depicted as an awesome moment in most media where it's portrayed. In this episode, it's no different...but here, we get to see that it's one for both God and Moses—God, for being the One who directs it, and Moses for being the instrument by which it happens. It helps that God's deep, commanding voice moments beforehand sets up the moment perfectly.
    God: Moses, why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.

  • "The Ten Commandments": Exodus 32 outlines just how angry Moses got when he came down from Mount Sinai and saw the Israelites worshiping the golden calf; in this episode, we get to see him in full Unstoppable Rage mode, culminating in him physically pushing the golden calf, which is the size of an actual calf, off its high pedestal. To put that act in perspective: a single gold bar weighs 12.4 kilograms (roughly 27 pounds), and the idol has obviously been molded from way more gold than that. Moses, at the time of the Sinai experience, is in his 80s. He single-handedly, without any form of aid, pushes over a heavy life-sized gold idol that, given his age and its approximate weight, he normally shouldn't be able to even budge—that's how mad at the Israelites he is.
    Moses: IDOLATERS!
  • "Roar": Daniel opening his bedroom window? A rather ho-hum act that just about anybody can do. Daniel opening his bedroom window because he's not going to hide the fact that he's praying to God, even though getting caught will mean he'll go into the lions' den (and for which cause Chris had previously shut the window to try and prevent such a fate), with glorious-looking sunlight coming into the room as a result of said window-opening and with majestic-sounding music all throughout? That right there is facing possible death with calm trust in God combined with Mundane Made Awesome.

  • "Miracles of Jesus": In this episode, Satan watches and laughs as the disciples struggle to keep the boats from capsizing during the storm on the Sea of Galilee. Well, when the disciples wake Jesus up to save them, what does He do?
    Jesus: (standing at the head of the boat) I rebuke you!
    (a burst of holy energy erupts outward and sends Satan flying back)
    Jesus: Peace. Be still. (the sea gets calm a moment later)
  • "Revelation": Jesus leading an army of angels from Heaven (as shown in the page image) to destroy Satan's forces. Also counts as a Big Damn Heroes moment as it happens right when Satan and his army have the kids cornered.
    Jesus: BEGONE, SATAN!
  • "Elijah and the Prophets of Baal": During the showdown on Mount Carmel, after the titular prophets of Baal fruitlessly seek to have their idol bring fire from heaven to consume their sacrifice, Elijah rebuilds the altar of God, then has the kids pour water all over his sacrifice, and then calmly and reverently implores God to show the people that He is the one and only true God. And God obliges in epic fashion.
  • "Solomon's Temple": The dedication of the titular temple to God is a very reverent affair...and it's crowned by the glory of God Himself entering the structure.

How well does it match the trope?
