In our country we have adopted the colors Red, White and Blue as our symbol of liberty. Liberty that started with the pursuit of people that sought freedom to worship God apart from a oppressive religious government. This pursuit of liberty came to the establishment that honored God in all matters of law, justice and the protection of freedom; using the word of God as a guide to the writing of a constitution and bill of rights that reflected God’s liberty.
While there is no official symbolism of the colors of the flag there is a similar attribute made to the seal of the United States. (IMAGE)
The colours of the pales are those used in the flag of the United States of America;
- White – purity and innocence
- Red – hardiness & valor
- Blue – the colour of the Chief signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice
This desire to have liberty comes from the Bible
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
We also see these colors symbolized in the Bible
- Red is a very special color to Christians because it is the color of the blood of Jesus that was shed for our sins.
- White, like the flag signifies purity
Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
In the scriptures the color blue is always combined with other colors of royalty but the workmanship or bindings are often colored in blue or the protective apron part of the priests garment was blue signifying the work one would do.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
So as much as the liberal media wants to try and separate the Bible from the government, the truth is that they have been combined from the very beginning. The very foundation of our country was set based on the desire to worship as they believed without oppression.
Tomorrow is Veterans Day. Veterans day celebrates those who have served, in any capacity; the facility that keeps us free from oppression. It is our opportunity to say, thank you to those who have served; ready to sacrifice all if needed to make sure that our liberty in Christ is preserved.
