Colors of the Cross


how to get to heaven


The YELLOW flag means caution. it is used to tell the racers to run slowly, either before an event begins or during a race. If it is waved during a race, it usually means there has been an accident or spin out somewhere on the track, or there is some debris on the track.


 Yellow, or gold, is used in the Bible to symbolize the streets of gold in Heaven. Heaven is where God lives and where he wants you to join him one day. but-BE CAREFUL- There's a problem on the track! 

[Jesus said]  Not everyone who says to me, ' Lord, Lord." Will enter the kingdom of Heaven. but only he who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven. Mathew 7:21 


The WHITE flag means there is one more lap remaining in a race. It is waved when the leader of the race crosses the finish line at the beginning of the final lap, and it is displayed to all remaining cars until the leader again crosses the finish line.


White signifies a perfect, sinless person's heart. Only when we accept what Christ has done on our behalf are we cleansed from our sins and made perfect, ready to have a relationship with God. 

Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Isaiah 1:18


The BLACK flag is displayed to a specific vehicle to indicate that it must leave the track. This usually occurs either because the driver has broken a rule or the vehicle is judged to be unfit to continue the race in its present condition. ( If the driver has broken a rule, usually a penalty is assessed and the car can continue the race. It must make any required repairs before reentering the track. )


Sin has entered the picture, and we are all guilty of it. No one can follow God's rules perfectly, thus we are all judged by him as unfit to continue. A penalty has been assessed, and the required repairs are needed. 

" All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law.' Romans 2:12


The GREEN flag means that the race has started and laps are being counted. It is used to signal the start of an event, including a hot lap session, a practice session, a series of time trial laps, or a race. Furled and twirled above the starters head, it means a practice or hot lap session can begin at full racing speed.


Green reminds us of things that grow, of life, and especially new life. Once a person accepts the claims of Christ and becomes a 'new creation,' that one is ready to grow in ways never thought possible.


Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17 


The RED flag means danger-all cars must come to a complete stop. It is usually used when a more serious accident has occurs or when the track becomes completely blocked. When red flag is waved, all vehicles must come to a complete stop and turn off their engines.


The danger of not paying sins penalty is death and eternal separation from God who made us. But the price was PAID, by God's perfect Son, Jesus Christ, when he died on the cross for our behalf. Hid blood soaks up our "sin spill" and makes us fit for heaven.

The blood of Jesus [God's] Son, purifies us from ALL sin 1 John 1:7

The CHECKERED flag is the one which has single-handedly come to stand for auto racing. It is used to signal the end of an event, whether that event is a hot lap session, a practice session, a series of a time trial laps, or a race. It is waved when the leader crosses the line to signal that the leader has won the race. The checkered flag is often given to the winner of  a race to be carried around the track in a victory lap. 


Our victory as Christians happens the day we enter the gates of Heaven and come to see Jesus face to face. What an incredible day that will be!

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57  


                                                             HERE'S HOW YOU CAN DO THAT

Sin is anything you think, say, or do that breaks God's Law.                             Do you think you are a sinner?

Jesus died on the Cross for your sins after being beaten and crucified.         Do you believe he died for you?

Jesus was buried in a tomb and 3 days later he arose from the grave.            Do you believe he is alive and risen?

Jesus went through all of this for you, because of your sins?                            Do you want to trust in him as your savior from Hell?

Romans 10:9-10    that if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved, for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.


If you just asked Jesus to come into your life, your name has been written in the Lamb's book of life!        Your home is in heaven!
