The Scriptures

        Psalm 20:4-9 (KJV)  4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel. 5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners [raise a flag]: the LORD fulfill all thy petitions. 6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. 7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. 8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. 9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.      

Isaiah 59:19 (KJV) When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Jeremiah 50:2-3 (KJV) 2Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces. 3For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast. “


Isaiah 13: 2-5 (The Message)  2-3″Run up a flag on an open hill. Yell loud. Get their attention.  Wave them into formation. Direct them to the nerve center of power. I’ve taken charge of my special forces, called up my crack troops. They’re bursting with pride and passion to carry out my angry judgment.  4-5Thunder rolls off the mountains like a mob huge and noisy—  Thunder of kingdoms in an uproar, nations assembling for war.  God-of-the-Angel-Armies is calling his army into battle formation.  They come from far-off countries, they pour in across the horizon. It’s God on the move with the weapons of his wrath,  ready to destroy the whole country.”
