Learn About the Basis of Our Faith at Christ Is Alive
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 is the most significant and tangible evidence of Jesus (Yahshua) Christ’s victory over death, hell, and the grave. It is also written 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 empty grave shouts to the world that there is still hope because Christ is alive. It is the basis of our faith!
Years ago, God gave Minister Peters an idea for the “Christ Is Alive” products. He said that He desired more discussion about Christ’s victory, the Resurrection. This would allow Him to open doors of opportunity for people to witness for Christ whenever they are asked about the uniquely beautiful jewelry or clothing they are wearing.
God has provided you with a tool that will make it easy for true Christians to embrace the calling to be ministers of reconciliation, as it is said in 2 Corinthians 5:18.
Over the years, the Lord has shown 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 (Romans 8:11). The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:9–22 that we would still be dead in our sins if it were not for Jesus’ resurrection. He would have been simply another man crucified, as were the other two beside him. Furthermore, we are commanded by God always to remember Jesus Christ being raised from the dead, like in 2 Timothy 2:8.
The Christ Is Alive® Design
Our patented three-dimensional design depicts the Holy Spirit, which is represented by a dove hovering over Jesus’ empty tomb. You can also see the angel who rolled the stone away.
The stone may also represent your birthstone or more significantly, your new birth. Your new birth is the month when you confessed Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
During your discussions about the Christ Is Alive® image, tell of how simple it is to make Jesus at the center 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.” – Romans 10:9–10.
Immediately after praying, inform them that they are now a new creation in Christ and all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
We thank you 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. (Psalm 35:27)
We want all believers to understand and embrace the basis of our faith, which is the resurrection of Christ. Because of this understanding, we symbolically wear the only tangible evidence of Christ’s victory—the empty tomb. By doing so, we become obedient to God, who calls for true worshipers that praise Him in spirit and truth.
Christ Is Alive aims to spread the truth that hope is found only in life and not in death. For us, Jesus is our ever-living hope. He encourages believers to stir up the gift that is in them to accept the call of being ministers of reconciliation (from 2 Corinthians 5:18). Through us, we want to help inspire the members of the Body of Christ, Christians, and Messianic Jews alike.
We believe the Lord will use the Christ Is Alive® image of the empty tomb in a mighty way so that we can accomplish our mission. Christ’s victory is our victory, and we are committed to winning souls for Christ and financing the advancement of the Gospel. (2 Corinthians 2:14-15)
