‘The Spirit of the Lord reveals His passionate love for us.’
The crimson red of this stunning flag has been used for centuries to express redemption and atonement. It represents the unconditional love of God towards mankind, seen through the blood covenant. The scarlet thread used in the tabernacle represents Jesus, the sacrifice and redeemer, as He is revealed in Luke’s gospel.
Blood, sacrifice, love, redemption, passion, covenant
Paired Colour: Violet
Red and Violet (or Purple) are paired to describe God’s relationship with us.
Colours, the Holy Spirit and the Hebrew Menorah:
Throughout Scripture, we see how God uses colours to communicate with mankind (Exodus 28:5). In particular, God spoke a promise to us through the colours of the rainbow after the flood (Genesis 9:13). Since God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5), these rainbow colours might be seen to represent aspects of His total character. James 1:17 tells us that every good gift comes down from the Father of lights (plural).
The Holy Spirit is ushering in a new dimension of worship which involves the use of colour in banners and garments. The Holy Spirit manifests himself as the seven fold spirit of the Lord in Isaiah 11:2 "And (1) the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, (2) the spirit of wisdom and (3 the spirit of) understanding, (4) the spirit of counsel and (5 the spirit of) might, (6) the spirit of knowledge and (7 the spirit) of the fear of the LORD”.
The seven colours of the rainbow can be seen to represent the Holy Spirit in His seven characteristics just as the temple lampstand, or in Hebrew "menorah", does according to Isaiah 11:2 and Revelation 4:5. The seven colours of the rainbow have been linked to the seven branches of the menorah following the traditional Hebrew pattern of reading right to left, beginning at the centre candle.
