TOPICS:


Introduction

The use of flags, banners and streamers give us another way to physically express ourselves in worship.  With a little encouragement and instruction, everyone can learn to wave a flag in praise and adoration to the Lord!  Flags can enable worshippers to have the freedom to express what is in their hearts as the Holy Spirit leads them into the presence of God.  This type of worship brings God's power, glory, and anointing upon our gatherings and takes us all the way to the Holy of Holies.

Flags and banners should always honor Yeshua/Jesus as He points the way to our Father God.  One of God's names is "Jehovah-Nissi" which means "God our Banner".   What greater banner could we have than Jesus and God our Father!   Jesus not only points the way to the Father -- He IS the way to the Father.   Flags and banners are an extended expression of love and adoration for Jesus giving honor to the Father.


Hebrew words for flags and banners:

Degel - 1715 (deh-gel) flag, banner, or standard
Nace - 5251 (nace) a signal , a sign.
Nacac - 5264 (naw-sas) conspicuous as a signal
Owth - 226 (oth) signal, beacon

COLORS and SYMBOLISM with SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

Personal note from Kathy:
The following is a combination of several studies and is not in anyway all-inclusive. Use this only as a guide.

For example, I dreamed of a blue flag, and after I prayed about it, God led me to Ezekiel 1:26.
