Power of the Cross™
The rope around the cross expresses His great sacrifice for us.
The red stones on the cross represents the seven areas Jesus’ body was pierced to atone for our sins. (The two wrists, two feet, the side where He was pierced, the crown that pierced His head and the lashes He received on His back.)
The crystal bezels portrays the sweat and tears on the road to Calvary.
The three black onyx stones represents the three days He lay in the tomb.
The pearl in the middle, which stands out, depicts the Resurrection power.
The crown at the top of the cross shows us that today He reigns in glory.
Because of His great love for us, we can have the Resurrection power in our lives.
“Yes it was written long ago that the Messiah must suffer and die and rise again from the dead on the third day. With my authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations. There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to me.” Luke 24:46-47
