The Cross of Jesus the Christ
It represents the honoring of One’s true beliefs, just as the symbol of the Cross bears a striking resemblance to the “T” in Truth. The Cross is a basic backbone structure of every thing, every particle in this world. If you take a closer look at the things around you or even a closer look at molecular or atomic structures, you will find crosses all over the place. The Truth is the so-called backbone of everything that is created, which exists, because everything is created on Truth.
The symbol of Jesus being hung on the Cross symbolizes that when the Sins of Man was reflected onto Jesus, He “absorbed” all the Sins of Man by using the Truth, that is He Himself, being at the front of the intersection of the Cross, which has the ability to concentrate energies, leading to His “death” because to be with Sin is to die.
Matthew 16:24-25 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.
Jesus says that one must give up his old ways and take up his true ways and seek the Truth of God. For it is either the delusions of the world or the Truth of God, one or the other not both.
Matthew 10:37-39 "Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
What does it really mean to wear a Cross?
It means that one has or is giving up his old ways to seek his true self. One doesn’t even need to wear a Cross to prove to others that they are seekers of the Truth, as long as one practice doing so. The Cross is not a fashion ornament one wears to bring out one’s appearance. Sometimes I get a little irritated when people wear Crosses of all shapes and sizes and some even made of expensive materials, they are merely using the Cross as a pretense, a façade for others to see, unless they are using it to block or reflect other people’s mental energies that is showered onto them.
MT 15:8 " `These people honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
MT 15:9 They worship me in vain;
their teachings are but rules taught by men.' "
Jesus even commented on such false practices. Even teachers of the law commits them.
MT 23:1 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 "The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. 3 So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy loads and put them on men's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
MT 23:5 "Everything they do is done for men to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them `Rabbi.'
