Cobenhagen Christian, King of Denmark, noticed during his wanderings, that the sign of the converted cross was waving on a public building and this would be a breach of the agreement between Hitler and the city. The King issued an order, "Drop this banner from the building."
The German soldier refused to follow the order saying, "The banner has been raised recently according to the orders issued from Berlin."
The King said, "I said drop this banner before twelve o'clock, or else, I shall send a soldier to the building to get it down."
The soldier said, "We’ll shoot any soldier who will do this."
The king said, "I’m the soldier who will take down the banner."
The king went up and took the banner down and the Nazi soldier could not kill the King of Denmark.
Likewise, King of Kings Jesus Christ came down from heaven to tear down the banner of Satan the power of this world and to replace it with the banner of heaven.
St. Paul the apostle, says,
"Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in
The same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil" (Heb. 2.14).
My King, remove from my heart the banner of the devil and replace it with Your love.
"And His banner over me was love" (Song. 2.4).
Who could expel the devil from my heart?
Who could liberate my soul except You?
Raise the banner of Your love on me so that my soul would be Your dwelling.
