Cry out and shout... for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee
TIME DEUM ET
IN HOC SIGNO VINCES
By this Sign, Conquer
Jesus Christ gave the battle cry IN HOC SIGNO VINCES to Emperor Constantine on 27 October 312. As Constantine moved his legions toward Rome, he had a vision of a "cross of light" and the Greek words TOUTO NIKA (conquer by this) in the sky. That evening as he considered this sign, the Lord Jesus Christ came to him and told him to be at peace and conquer under His sign. The next day he carried a Labarum with the battle cry inscribed upon it and defeated a force four to ten times larger than his and liberated Rome.
