Banners - definitely not a “girly” thing

When I first heard about the Banner Workshop being held at our church my first response was, "this will be really great for my wife, she loves this kind of 'foo foo' girly stuff". You see, I'm not that kind of guy. I see myself as a rough, tough man - definitely not a banner waver. Little did I know that my life was about to change and I could still be a rough, tough man and even more so.

Not a girly thing

When I went through the training, I gained an understanding of what banners were really about and now I see them in a whole different way. I learned that banners can be used very powerfully for WARFARE. In the days gone by, when a country went into war they had the men at the front carry the banners and battle standards. These declared to the enemy who they were, where they were from and they were LEADING the armies into battle. I quickly understood that this was not some "foo foo" kind of thing - this was serious stuff. I discovered a way of expressing myself and found a new weapon of war against the enemy.

Now that I have attended the workshop my attitude to banners is completely changed. Every time I now pick up a banner, I have a sense of anticipation and excitement. They have changed and improved my time of worship and my relationship with the Lord has grown more intimate. I am now able to better express myself during worship and I get lost in His Presence in a way that I haven't been able to before. There is an added depth to my times of prayer which are enhanced by the feel and the sound of the silk.

My wife and I have purchased some of the banners and we use them at home regularly during times of worship and prayer.

All I can say is, who-ever would have thought that something like a piece of silk that I perceived to be so "foo foo and girly" could be so powerful.

Banners in the Bible

Isaiah 31:9
'Their stronghold will fall because of terror; at sight of the battle standard their commanders will panic,' declares the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, whose furnace is in Jerusalem.

Song of Solomon 6:4,10
O my love, you are as beautiful as Tirzah, lovely as Jerusalem, awesome as an army with banners!… Who is she who looks forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, awesome as an army with banners? (NKJV)

Psalms 20:3-5
May He remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests.

Jeremiah 51:27
Lift up a banner in the land! Blow the trumpet among the nations! Prepare the nations for battle against her; summon against her these kingdoms: Ararat, Minni and Ashkenaz. Appoint a commander against her; send up horses like a swarm of locusts.
