"YHWH is My Banner..." by Chris Powers

By Elizabethprata @elizabethprata
As you head to worship today, if you are reading this on a Sunday, raise your banner of the LORD before you and praise Him, exalt Him, and love Him. If you're reading this on a weekday, raise your banner of the LORD before you and share His Light in your sphere by your words and deeds.

Mr Powers is drawing an illustration to a verse per day. I will post them frequently, because they are beautiful, scriptural, and edifying. Visual theology at its beautiful best. Read below for artist's explanation.

Today's verse picture is more of a visual word study (thus the inclusion of verse references within the picture, which I don't typically do for these). You can take a look at the verses and how they intertwine below:

Exodus 17:15, "And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, 'YHWH Is My Banner (נס)" - YHWH as נס
Numbers 21:8, "And YHWH said to Moses, 'Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole (נס), and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live." - Serpent set on נס
Isaiah 11:10-12, "In that day the root of Jesse, who shall stand as a signal (נס)...[the Lord] will raise a signal (נס) for the nations and will assemble the banished of Israel..." - The Messiah as נס raised to gather the nations...
John 3:14-15, "...as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life."
John 3:14-15 unites the imagery of YHWH, the curse, the Messiah, and the beacon raised to gather the nations into one--the crucified Son...
