Exodus: Lord Our Banner


The Lord is our Banner
The banner is a symbol of victory. In a war, when one side captures the others’ flag/banner, they can claim victory.
When Moses stood on that hill and raised his staff, the staff was like the flag/banner for the Israelites. As long as it was raised high, the Israelites fought more boldly and confidently. But when it started dropping, their spirits fell too.
So Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ arms, one on each side.
(That’s the importance of good friends. When we see someone is tired or discouraged — whether your teacher, parents, siblings or friends — we can come and support and encourage them. We can say, “Come, let me help you. You don’t have to do it alone.”)
This banner in the hand of Moses was a visible image of God’s presence and power. He was the one who would provide the victory over the Amalalekites. By themselves, the Israelites were sure to be defeated and destroyed. But with God, they could be victorious!
Jehovah Nissi: The Lord is our Banner! 
Jesus has won the victory for us
What shape do you see when Moses stands up there with his hands stretched out, holding his staff?
Yes, it’s the Cross.
Today, the Cross is our banner, our flag, our victory.
When we see the Cross, we remember Jesus’ death and finished work on the Cross.
Jesus won the victory over sin and death for us! And unlike Moses’ tired arms, Jesus does not get tired or weary. His work on the Cross stands forever — His victory is forever.
Even Jesus tells us that we will face problems in life. But He also tells us we can have peace and be assured because Jesus has won the victory already! “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
So no matter what problems and challenges we face, whether it’s not enough food or an enemy’s army, we can look at the Cross and know He has given us the victory!
Jehovah Nissi: The Lord is our Banner!
