- Basis Of Our Faith
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre (also known as The Church of the Resurrection) in Jerusalem was built over the actual tomb of Jesus Christ. It’s the most significant and tangible evidence in the earth today of Jesus (Yahshua) Christ’s VICTORY over death, hell, and the grave. And is written about in the book of Matthew, chapter 28. The image is of a stone that was rolled away by an angel from the entrance of the tomb where Christ was buried. The empty tomb was shown for all to see, that he had risen. What better TRUTH or symbolic image is there than the image of the EMPTY TOMB. The image of the empty tomb shouts to the world that there is still HOPE because CHRIST IS ALIVE…the BASIS of our faith!
Years ago Father God gave me an idea for the “Christ Is Alive” products. He said, He desired more discussion about Christ’s victory, His Resurrection. This would allow Him to open doors of opportunity for you to witness for Christ whenever asked about the uniquely beautiful jewelry or clothing you are wearing.
Father has provided to you, and for you, a tool that will make it easy for true Christians to embrace the call on our lives to be ministers of reconciliation, 2 Cor. 5:18
Over the years, Father God has shown to me, in His Word, that the “cross” would not have the profound significance that it has if it were not for Christ’s victory, being raised from the dead by the Holy Spirit, Rom. 8:11. The Apostle Paul said in 1 Cor. 15:9-22, that we would still be dead in our sins if it were not for Christ’s resurrection. Jesus would have been simply another man crucified, as were the other two beside Him. Furthermore, we are commanded by God to always remember Jesus Christ raised from the dead in 2 Tim. 2:8.
The Christ Is Alive® patented three dimensional design depicts the Holy Spirit which is represented by a dove hovering over the empty tomb which is cut out of rock, where Jesus was laid. You also see an angel that rolled away the stone that covered the entrance.
To personalize your walk with Christ the stone may represent your birthstone or more significantly your NEW BIRTH, the month in which you confessed Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
During your discussions about the Christ Is Alive® image, tell of how simple it is to make Jesus, Lord of your life. You may say this simple prayer (have the person(s) repeat after you):
“Dear God in heaven, I believe in my heart, that you raised Jesus from the dead; Dear Jesus, come into my heart, be Lord of my life, I want to live my life for You, all the days of my life…thank you Jesus for saving me.” Rom. 10:9-10.
Immediately after praying, inform them that they are NOW a new creation in Christ and all things have become new. 2 Cor. 5:17.
My personal thanks for your assistance and obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ in getting His message to the world. Now, shout for joy because you favor His righteous cause…Ps. 35:27
