This streamer is called the Sword of Grace. As we use this streamer we are inviting the Grace and Mercy of the Lord to come into our midst, to settle on each person, that they might receive Grace and Mercy.
The reason for the name, The Sword of Grace, has everything to do with the colors in this particular streamer. The first color is iridescent which is see-through. We are expressing to the Lord, that we will be transparent before Him.
The next color is silver which means Redemption. We are expressing our thankfulness to Him because He has redeemed us.
The third color is gold. We are saying a couple of things by this color. First, we are recognizing and inviting the Deity of Christ to come into our midst.(Deity-Supreme Being).Webster’s Dictionary. Second we are saying that as we go through the fiery trials in our lives that we will be refined by the fire, and come forth as gold to be used by Him. Zec. 13:9 “And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.But he knoweth the way that I take.”
Job. 23:10 “When He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
As we wave these streamers with their specific colors we are making a powerful statement in the spiritual realm, this statement is recognized by the Host of heaven, and our Father. We are celebrating and acknowledging what He is doing in our lives.

One Sunday morning, before the worship began I noticed a woman come into our sanctuary. She was an older lady and very crippled up. She was walking painfully with a walker. As she walked up the aisle from the back, she seated herself about 6 rows from the back in the first seat next to the aisle so she could get in and out easily. I went back to introduce myself and welcome her to our church. I sat down next to her and said that I was glad that she had come to visit us. She explained that she had come on the county bus from a local nursing home, and that she had to leave at exactly 12:00, when the bus would be back to get her.
I told her I would help her when that time came. The deacons were at the front preparing the communion table. This lady was hard of hearing, and she commented very loudly, “This isn’t a Catholic church is it?”
I replied, “No, it is an Assembly Of God church.”, she then said. “Well, this better not be a Catholic church, or I am leaving.” Then she asked; “What are those men doing up at the front that is taking so long?” I said they are preparing communion.
Shortly the music began. I moved out into the aisle directly beside her. As I began to use the Sword of Grace streamer, a song began that was saying that Grace and Mercy were in our midst. Suddenly I felt a presence on either side of me. Not a human presence, but spiritual. I asked the Lord, what is this? He said this is Grace and Mercy. I thought to myself, if I can take Grace and Mercy over and touch this woman she will be healed.
Since she was to the right of me, I switched the streamer to my left hand and moved over to the right towards her with my right hand extended out to touch her. As I moved a step to the right, I stepped out of the midst of Grace and Mercy, so I stepped back and immediately felt their presence, so I stepped to the right again, determined to touch this lady with Grace and Mercy. The same thing happened again. I stepped out of it. I stepped back and felt the Divine angelic presence immediately. I then asked the Lord, “Why can’t I touch this lady with Grace and Mercy?”, and He spoke to my heart and said, “Because she won’t extend Grace and Mercy, I can’t extend Grace and Mercy. Her bitterness has crippled her.” I was shocked . When the worship ended and we partook of the communion I was concerned for her as she also partook. I thought of the scripture where the Lord says if we drink of the cup with judgement in our hearts we will be judged. I Cor. 11:26-32 “For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.”
When it turned 12:00 I helped the lady up and outside to wait for her bus. I gave her a chair and as we waited I thought, it is now or never. I said to her, “Mam, I noticed that you have a problem with catholic people. She said immediately “Don’t talk to me about Catholics”. I pressed on, because I knew the bus would be coming soon, and I didn’t know if I would ever see this woman again. I said, “I have many catholic friends who are believers, and love the Lord. You have to forgive those who have hurt you, so you can be forgiven.” At that she blew up at me and said ,”Don’t you say another word to me about this subject.” Just then the bus pulled into the church parking lot to pick her up. I helped her to the bus steps, she dragged her crippled body up those steps. I was praying for the Lord in His grace and mercy to give her a revelation about all of this. I never saw her again, but this experience activated me to pursue a study about this subject.
Heb.12:15 “Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.” Trouble: The growth of a poisonous plant. (Heb./Greek concordance).
Matt. 6:12 “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
John 4: 15-16“For if you also forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses,neither will your father forgive your trespasses.”
This woman might be wondering why she hasn’t received a healing. She might have come seeking a healing, but these verses are pretty clear why some are not healed.
A main purpose of using this streamer in the assembly is to be standing in the gap for others, identification repentance on their behalf, repenting on behalf of sin they have committed against the Lord, asking the Lord to move them from the Courtroom of Judgment to the Throne room of Grace, so that they might experience a season of Grace in their lives. I am not saying that every person who is sick or crippled has bitterness in their heart, but it couldn’t hurt to pray the repentance prayer for themselves and their family bloodline, if they haven’t, to remove all legal rights to generational curses that they could be suffering under.
