The Ultimate Stars & Stripes Forever — Presentation Transcript

A Flag is a nation’s banner – its identity.

On the battlefield, men identify themselves by the flag they stand under.

They are saying, “This is my tribe and I am willing to die for it.”


The bible likens the church to just such an army:

“Who is this woman? …She is as majestic as troops carrying their banners.” Song 6:10

Christians have their own banner

Some Christian symbolism in the American flag:

vThe Stars: Remind us of Christ’s Heavenly nature.

vThe White Stripes: Remind us of Christ’s purity.

vThe Red Stripes: Remind us of His blood spilled for our freedom.

The Stars & Stripes of Jesus

Jesus was born under a star and is called “The Morning Star”—His Heavenly nature.

He died after being tortured with 39 cruel stripes—what He suffered to win our freedom.

“Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree… by whose stripes you were healed.”

1 Peter 2:24

The Story of Christ, Our Banner

Our enemy took mankind prisoner.

A legal release had been negotiated at the cross—rendering the prisoners officially free.

However, one more, potentially devastating battle might render that deal irrelevant. Jesus still had to face the grave & Hell itself.

Mankind was watching. Will Jesus rise or remain in Hell—defeated? What will happen to our banner?

The prisoners are set free.

Praise God, after a long three day watch, Jesus did Rise on Easter Morning…

‘…by the dawn’s early light’

Indeed, our banner yet waves!

As demonstrated by this famous moment in baseball history, a beloved banner will be fiercely defended by those who love it.

If men will lay down their lives for love of a flag…

…how much more worthy of our devotion is the One who died to purchase our salvation?

What would we endure for His namesake?

Listen to the true story of the Forty Martyrs of Sevaste— A story of fierce devotion to Christ.

Rev. Dudley A. Tyng, a YMCA preacher, helped lead Philadelphia into major revival in the 1850’s.

Two weeks later, he accidently got his arm caught in a corn-thrasher where it was ripped out at the socket.

Be proud and wave our flag—We love Jesus, our Lord and Savior!
