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

John 12:30-32
Jesus said, 'This voice was for your benefit, not Mine. Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself'.

Isaiah 13:1-4
An oracle concerning Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw: Raise a banner on a bare hilltop, shout to them; beckon to them to enter the gates of the nobles. I have commanded my holy ones; I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath- those who rejoice in my triumph. Listen, a noise on the mountains, like that of a great multitude! Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms, like nations massing together! The LORD Almighty is mustering an army for war.

Jeremiah 50:2
Announce and proclaim among the nations, lift up a banner and proclaim it; keep nothing back, but say, Babylon will be captured; Bel will be put to shame, Marduk filled with terror, her images will be put to shame and her idols filled with terror.
