The Christian Flag
The Christian flag is the only free flag in the world. It is different from every other flag, religious or secular, ancient or modern. It is uncontrolled, independent, and universal.

A Creed is a formal declaration of faith or a confession of religious beliefs. There are many Creeds that have been written, such as the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed, Luther's 95 Theses, the Augsburg Confession, the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Rule of Faith, and The Didache. Today we call them a doctrinal statement or statement of beliefs. Read the Doctrinal Statement of Fundamental Truths of The Old Time Gospel.

Ships in Biblical Times
Used in foreign commerce by the Phoenicians (Genesis 49:13). Moses (Deuteronomy 28:68) and Job (9:26) make reference to them, and Balaam speaks of the ships of Chittim (Numbers 24:24). Solomon constructed a navy at Ezion-geber by the assistance of Hiram's sailors (1 Kings 9:26-28; 2 Chronicles 8:18). Afterwards, Jehoshaphat sought to provide himself with a navy at the same port, but his ships appear to have been wrecked before they set sail (1 Kings 22:48, 49; 2 Chronicles 20:35-37). In Jesus' time fishermen's boats on the Sea of Galilee were called ships. Much may be learned regarding the construction of ancient merchant ships and navigation from the record in Acts 27, 28.

The Clothing of the Bible
Our knowledge of the clothing worn by people in The Bible comes primarily from the Scriptures themselves, as well as from illustrations on various monuments, seals and plaques that have been found. Findings in grave and tomb remains by archaeologists have also provided direct evidence.
Musical Instruments of the Bible
Music fills the courts of heaven as heavenly beings praise our Lord and Creator. When God created the world, the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy (Job 38:7). God created man in His own image, to be a instrument of praise. He gave humans the ability to sing and to make music with musical instruments to complement the voice.
The Sovereignty of God
This simply refers to the fact that all things are under His rule and control, and that nothing happens in this Universe without His direction or permission. He is a God Who works, not just some things, but all things after the counsel of His own will (Ephesians 1:11). God's purpose is all- inclusive and is never thwarted (Isaiah 46:11).
