What does the Dumbbell Cross represent?
Shields of Strength dumbbell cross and necklace is a stunning representation of faith in the risen King, Who provides faith-based strength for His followers. The blending of strength and power is uniquely presented as one element. The heavenly, higher power perspective and human faith melted together in a work of art. Just as muscles are strengthened through lifting weights, working out one’s faith makes for a stronger person and relationship with Jesus Christ. God sent His Son to take on flesh for His purposed plan of salvation. He was wholly divine and wholly human. He received divine strength from God (Matthew 4:11). His purpose on earth required both bodily strength and faith to endure what He would ultimately be called to do. Always, He looked to the Father in obedience. The examples for both faith and strength were displayed in His life. He was the perfect picture of faith and fitness, the ultimate symbol of strength. His earthly father was a carpenter and like most fathers of that era taught Jesus his trade (Matthew 13:54-55; Mark 6:3). The word carpenter, translated from the Greek [G5045] in both Matthew and Mark is τέκτων, tekton; pronounced tek'-tone; from the base G5088, craftsman as in wood-carpenter. He was a builder/laborer, a man who fixed and built things. The medium most available to Him was wood and stone. This heavy work, done without the aid of machinery, built His muscles and developed His stamina. Next time you look at the toned body of a Christian athlete, consider that Jesus also was toned through heavy lifting and honed by the Word. By faith He followed His Father through the physical demands on His tortuous journey to the cross. His strength was upheld through faith and the divine empowerment of the Holy Spirit. This and much more does the Shields of Strength Dumbbell Cross depict.
What is the meaning of John 19:30?
The remarkable divine circumstances surrounding Jesus’ death upon a cross set the world in a completely different trajectory. He breathed out His soul according to biblical prophecy. The history of exploitation, slavery, denial, betrayal was just some of the marks pressed into the road to Calvary. God the Father’s shrouded power from His heart through people was the force that pressed upon Christ’s heart and mind to finish the task before Him. “It is finished,” a Greek word (5055. Teleo) means to bring to a close, perform, complete, fulfill a command. Christ had accomplished exactly what His Father had commanded. Christ satisfied God’s justice in obedience, dying for all, to pay for sins of the redeemed. Their sins can never be punished again because that would violate God’s justice. Christ the final sacrificial lamb paid your debt.
Shields of Strength cross necklace is a wonderful symbolic reminder for you or a loved one of the gift of eternal life, hope, love, grace, and mercy.
