Ship and Roses (Word for Mississippi)
"Mississippi shall be My people, and I will be their God, and I will give them ONE HEART and ONE WAY, that they may fear Me always, for their own good and for the good of their children after them. I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; and I will put the fear of Me in their hearts so that they will not turn away from Me." (Jer 32:38-40)
The Lord is Commissioning and Launching us! The commissioning of USS Jackson is a prophetic sign for Mississippi of the commissioning of the Lord. The "naval ship" in the Lord's army is a sail boat for we will be carried and directed by wind of His Spirit! The Lord has given Mississippi a new name and a new identity and the BANNER over Mississippi is LOVE.
The Lord said the "Stars and Bars" are bars of captivity. Is time for Mississippi to wear her new label!
