The Lord reigns, His is robed in majesty, the Lord is robed in majesty and is armed with strength. --Psalm 93:1

O Lord my God, You are very great. You are clothed with splendor and majesty. He wraps Himself in light as with a garment.
Psalm 104:1,2

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; You are exalted as head over all. --I Chronicles 29:11

This banner proclaims Jesus as the "Exalted One", a title He rightfully deserves because of His obedience to death on the cross. This descriptive title is implied in Phillipians 2:9: Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name. The banner is an offering of honor to Jesus as Exalted King. Made in the form of an opulent, kingly robe, it only begins to portray His immeasurable royalty, glory and grandeur. As we look on this symbol of kingship, we are reminded to consider Jesus' authority and sovereign power as supreme ruler of the universe He created.

COLORS: Purple is the color of royalty and majesty. Gold represents glory and deity. Jewelling throughout the banner conveys wealth and unlimited resource. The many colors of the jewels express the favor of Father God, even as Joseph's coat of many colors signified the favor of his father, Jacob-Israel (Genesis 37:3).

FRINGE: The fringe represents the fulfillment of the law by the perfect Son of God. As the fringe is jewelled, it is reminiscent of Aaron's beard dripping with the oil of anointing (Psalm 133), a type of Jesus the Anointed One, our High Priest.

BACK: The gold lining of the robe is meant to express the glory and light which surrounds the Lord (He wraps Himself with light a with a garment" Psalm 104:2). The words "power and strength", and "glory and honour" on the border speak statements which honor to the King. Imagine, if you will, Jesus wearing this robe. As He would extend His right hand upward, the words on the banner also are lifted up and this declaration is made: "Ah, Sovereign Lord, You have made the heavens and earth by your great power and outstretched arm" (Jeremiah 32:17). "His right hand and holy arm have worked salvation for Him" (Psalm 98:1). The center panel that says "AMEN" is a sealing of the proclamation and also is a title of our Lord according to Revelation 3:14: These things sayeth the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the beginning of the creation of God.

Exalted one has been a featured part of the visual worship experience for several of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem celebrations of the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem, Israel. It has also appeared with some of the stateside "Taste of the Feast" celebrations. exalted one was designed and constructed in February 1990.
