Why we wear the
Heaven's Saints didn't always wear the Christian Flag on their backs. Previously, we wore a full-size Heaven's Saints patch on our backs. While ministering at Daytona Beach , the Lord gave Barry Mayson the vision of wearing the Christian Flag on our backs and placing our small (then our support patch) in the lower right hand corner. This meant cutting off the Heaven's Saints Armour of the Lord patch that God had given him so many years before. It was hard, VERY HARD, but he did it right then and there under the ministry tent in Daytona Beach, Florida. Not only did the Lord show him that the Heaven's Saints should do this; but Barry felt led to urge other Christian motorcycle ministries do the same - wear the Christian Flag on their back with their ministry identification in the lower right hand corner. The scripture the Lord gave Barry is found in John 3:30 "He must increase, but we must decrease". Many Heaven's Saints then and in the months following received the vision with understanding and followed in wearing the Christian Flag. Others ended up leaving the Heaven's Saints ministry because they didn't like the change. Not only did we receive criticism from our own members, but members and especially leaders of other ministries accused the Heaven's Saints of various things, one of which was trying to absorb all of the other Christian ministries into one big ministry run by Barry! Well, here we are, years later, and we have brothers and sisters in other ministries who also wear the Christian Flag who are what we call "covenant" with us and us with them. It has worked to unite us and yet to keep the individual ministries as the members want them.
Since the Christian flag belongs to no one, anyone can wear it without necessarily belonging to any ministry, association, club, organization, or incorporation.
