Symbol of The Lord’s Army

Cross

The cross represents the body of Our Lord, which was bruised, broken, and nailed on a cross. His outstretched arms represent His love for us that even now He is extending to everyone:

23  For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
24  And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. (1 Corinthians 11:23-24)

Cup

The cup represents the cup of the Last Supper, and the New Testament/Covenant, and the Blood of Jesus:

25  After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
26  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. (1 Corinthians 11:25-26)

Star

The Star represents the light of God that shines on the inside of each person, and our Lord, who is The Bright and Morning Star, and His coming glory that will be seen and felt by all:

9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (John 1:9)

19  We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. (2 Peter 1:19)

16  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.  I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. (Revelation 22:16)

5  And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. (Isaiah 40:5)

The Star has Eight Points, which represent Jesus’ rising on the Eighth Day, which itself signifies New Beginnings (example: baptismal fonts have eight pillars), which the revealing of Our Lord’s glory will do.

Steps

The Three Steps represent the Trinity, and remind us of the steps of the temple where Our Lord “taught daily” (Luke 19:47), and that WE are the New Covenant temples in which the Godhead fully dwells:

47  And he taught daily in the temple.  (Luke 19:47)

30 I was daily his delight, (Proverbs 8:30)

9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily and ye are complete in him. (Colossians 2:9-10)

11  But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. (Romans 8:11)

16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16)

Flag

The symbol may be rotated horizontally and used as a flag, with the cup rotated 1/4 so it always faces up, and the steps removed since it’s not standing.
