From the most remote antiquity, the cross has been a sacred symbol since it is found in all the monuments of the world—both in Egypt, Assyria, and India, and Persia and Mexico. The peculiar meaning of this symbol is precisely that given by ancient Egypt of Toth or Phtha, who is represented in the oldest monuments carrying the Ansata or tau cross in his hand, with a ring on top, representing the hieroglyph of life. that preceded by a triangle means “life-giving.”
The Rose was formerly consecrated at dawn and the sun. And it is a symbol of dawn and resurrection, of light and renewal of life. The cross and the rose together hieroglyphically mean—the dawn of eternal life and the advent of a savior awaited by all nations.
The letters I.N.R.I.
The initials of the inscription that was placed on the cross of Christ: “Iesue Nazarenus Rex Iudeorum.” The wise men of old believed that these letters symbolized one of the greatest secrets of nature. That of universal regeneration, and they interpreted it this way. “Igne Natura Renovatur Integra” (nature is renewed by fire)
Alchemists and Hermetic Masons deduced this aphorism from them. “Igne Nitrum Roris Invenitur” these letters are the initials of the Hebrew words that represent the four elements. Iammim: sea – Nour: fire – Ruach: air – Iebeschah: earth.
Symbolizing the final triumph of truth over falsehood, of life over death, of good over evil.

  1. Although I agree with your interpretation , on my day, I have witnessed many other attributions to the INRI, all kind of people, who play and abuse the Symbolism of it, for their own purposes, and self aggrandizement, some just because in their name those four letters are found.
    And even know of some people who have changed their names in order to have the INRI on it!🤦‍♂️😒
