The Ascension of Our Lord
All Rulers on Earth Surrender Their Weapons
Psalm 47: 9
James 3: 1 - 12
The Eighth Commandment
In Bible times, the peoples and tribes who lost battles and wars would surrender their weapons as they were taken into slavery. The weapons would either be added to the victor's store of his own weapons, or they would be broken and destroyed.
Put up the banner and the background, and add an assortment of weapons, either from Bible times or from today as we recognize the Lord of Lords, King of Kings, who ascended into heaven to be the ruler of all people.
And this might be a good time to look at what James the Elder and Martin Luther saw as our most vicious weapons - our tongues.
