Joshua 10:17-26 (AMP)
And Joshua was told, “The five kings have been found and are hidden in the cave at Makkedah.” Joshua said, “Roll large stones against the mouth of the cave, and assign men by it to guard them, but do not stay there yourselves; pursue your enemies and attack them from the rear. Do not allow them to enter their cities, for the Lord your God has given them into your hand.” Now when Joshua and the sons of Israel had finished striking the Amorites dead in a very great defeat, until they were wiped out, and the surviving remnant among them had entered the fortified cities, all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace. No one uttered a [threatening] word against any of the sons of Israel.
Then Joshua said, “Open the mouth of the cave and bring out to me those five [Amorite] kings from the cave.” They did so, and brought these five [Amorite] kings out of the cave to him—the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon. When they brought these kings out to Joshua, Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and told the commanders of the men of war who had gone with him, “Come up close, put your feet on the necks of these kings.” So they came forward and put their feet on the necks [of the five kings]. Joshua said to them, “Do not fear or be dismayed (intimidated)! Be strong and courageous, for this is what the Lord will do to all your enemies against whom you [are about to] fight.” Then afterward Joshua struck them [with his sword] and put them to death, and he hung them on five trees; and they hung on the trees until evening.
Our Father in heaven,
We are blind creatures, to be much pitied. We see through a glass darkly and do not fully comprehend the spiritual forces that are propping up the current state flag.
If there are demonic forces that are empowering the current flag, we order the demon leaders bound, entrapped in a small place, and guarded by angels. Seal them up as in a bag. We bind up all interaction, interplay, and communication by these demon forces. We loose holy angels to read Holy Scripture to these imprisoned demons day and night without ceasing.
A new flag, Father. That is our hearts’ desire. A flag of Hope. A new flag to bring honor to Your name. Amen.
