Banner Description —  

Just as God separated the darkness from light 

By the blood of Jesus He separated sin from righteousness 

The black top represents darkness — sin 

The white bottom represents the light – righteousness/Holiness

Diagonally across the Banner is a Silver band. 

Silver represents the “Light” that separates the darkness from light; as well as, sin from holiness. As God separated darkness from light, Jesus separated sin from purity-righteousness by His blood. A row of red and silver sequins run through the middle of the silver band to represent the blood of Jesus.

Silver also represents the Holy Spirit, and it is the work of the Holy Spirit that draws us unto Salvation. 

The Passion (6 pointed) Star — The six days of Creation

This represents the love that God had for the whole world – John 3:16

To make peace by the blood of His son Jesus. Jesus took the sin of man to the cross.

The World-

Romans 5:12 tells us that sin entered the world through man.

Romans 8:3, 10 All have sinned.

The Passion Cross and red sequins around the world represent the blood of Jesus as payment for our sins.

The Son died
