(ah kreetí) : to grow by being added to.
My goal in designing this coat of arms was to depict several scriptures from the Holy Bible which are personal favorites in such a way as to point to, man's only Hope and Salvation, the All Sufficient, Lord Jesus (Yashua in the original Hebrew language) Christ:
For He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, The first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come To have first place in everything.(Colossians 1:17,18)
So let your praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Yashua! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope Through the resurrection of Yashua from the dead, And into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade, Kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by Gods power (1 Peter 1:3>5)
