in the name of the Lord
Not too long ago, a little boy asked me to play a board game. I agreed. He pushed the instructions toward me and told me to read them. I asked him about one of the playing pieces. “What does the flag stand for?”
He was quick to inform me in a rather definitive voice, When you capture the flag, you win.
A little child shall lead them.
Psalm 20:5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfil all thy petitions.
In a Bible Dictionary, Peloubet’s Bible Dictionary, “banner” is referred to under “ensign”. Among the definitions it says this: “probably resembled…a figure or device of some kind elevated on a pole…such as…the king’s name.”
And who is the King’s name? The name of Jesus.
And so when the authority of the name of Jesus is used over a situation, when Jesus is Lord, the victory is won.
When you capture the flag, you win.
