Flag on the wall: New China

Top left: Today our nation is under invasion and enslaved by all sorts of sins and oppression. It is doomed unless we have great enlightenment and determination. All believers shall act on Christ’s last commandment to save the world, be united and go forward. Our Christian lives shall be characterized by brightness, truth, love and sacrifice. Our mission is to defeat all darkness so that the coming of a bright “New China”, “on earth as it is in heaven”, will be hastened.

Bottom right: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (See New Testament, Ephesians 6:10-12)
