Sermonette: Flag of Our Father

Lifting Up The Lord's Banner

Given 02-Jul-16; 17 minutes

description: (hide)

Ronny Graham, noting that the flying of old glory has come under attack while burning and desecrating it has become a token of free speech, suggests that the flag has always served as a symbol of the highest ideals of a nation, a symbol of occupied territory, and a symbol of hope, as exemplified in the valiant displaying of the flag on Iwo Jima. The flag in biblical times also served as an identification of the 12 tribes of Israel. In the Exodus, the display of flags served as a method of maintaining order and discipline. In the battle against the Amalekites, the banner, which was held by Moses, Aaron, and Hur, indicated to Moses that God and no one else was in control of the situation, a realization which we must also maintain.
