Earlier this week, we celebrated Veterans Day. I often get it mixed up with Memorial’s Day or Labor Day. Yet, there is an important connection there. Our vets give their lives for Crown and Country as a memorial of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice. They sacrifice so that we can experience Freedom, freedoms won on the Cross over two thousand years ago. That Freedom includes the right to live and work freely without undue hardship or taxation. That is what the American flag means to me. You see those 13 stripes? Those are the ones that Saint Peter talks about when he says, “By whose stripes ye were healed” (1 Peter 2:24, KJV).
Peter is actually quoting an Old Testament scripture from Isaiah, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5 , KJV). This was a Messianic prophetic scripture. It shows that the Messiah’s crucifixion was preordained--to help us, so that we could recognize how the Great Warrior King had to humble Himself to bear our mistakes.
See how those 13 stripes represent the old colonies and the 50 states, the new unified states? The Holy Bible, as put together by the inspired editorial judgement of G-d--represents the Unified Bible: the Hebrew Bible and the Greek Bible. They are in one (re)New(ed )Covenant back to G-d through Yeshua Jesus’ victory won on the Cross—just like them patriots who won it, are winning it, on the field everyday in this thing, this battle called life.
