Dream: The Spiritual Significance of the American Flag

The flag represents the blood of men and women who died in honor, to uphold ideals they believed were just and righteous.

Posted on

In a recent dream, I was driving through the southern, middle, and northern parts of America.  I was struck at how almost everywhere I looked I saw the American Flag waving from light poles, the front, and backs of vehicles, house porches, people marching & waving it along streets like a parade and more.  

It seemed as if I was traveling in a non-stop parade across America and captured by the amazing view of American flags waving everywhere.  

In the dream I suddenly had a prophetic revelation from the Lord–  “those who honor the flag are honoring the purposes of God for the land.”  I also knew that this was a controversial statement.  I said out loud “The church is often so religious, they don’t understand the significance of anything outside the four walls, especially the Godly purpose of nations.”    

Then I said:  “if people wave the American flag with honor, even if it has nothing to do with God himself, God will honor the nation” — in the dream, I was wrestling with the theology of what I just said, and then another prophetic revelation came to me:  

“The flag represents the blood of men and women who died in honor, to uphold ideals they believed were just and righteous”.  I then heard this from the Lord:  “I honor their sacrifice”.     

Then I thought, “well God hasn’t America’s flag been used for many injustices and evils as well”?  

I heard this:  “My name has been used for many injustices and evils too”…  “but its the blood of the one who honored my name that is spiritually applied to my name” —  

I knew when He said this, that the blood of those who honored the just and righteous causes of America was credited to the flag.  


Lastly in the dream, I knew two things: 

1) Nations were not made by man, but by God.  Every nation was given a redemptive purpose and calling, and it was up to its leaders to govern, and steward unto these purposes.  

2)  If Americans honor the flag in this time, it will have a spiritual effect on the unity of the nation, and the presidential elections.
