"Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee" (Isaiah 60:1). O, Church of God of Prophecy, today is a day to celebrate! It's Arise Shine Day! It's Flag Day! We are a joyful people. How could we not be? The glory of the Lord has risen upon us!
We display the scepter, star, and crown to help us declare boldly to the world that Jesus rules our lives with total power and authority; that He is our bright and morning Star; that He is our king of Kings!
We wave our flag because it is an ensign to “be displayed because of the truth” (Psalm 60:4). Its colors, symbols, and components “all point to our Christ.” People everywhere, come under the banner of love! "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee" (Isaiah 60:1).
