The exact origin of this symbol is unknown. In many respects it resembles an ankh except that its arms curve down. Its meaning is also reminiscent of the ankh, it is often translated to mean welfare or life. As early as the Third Dynasty we find the tiet being used as decoration when it appears with both the ankh and the djed column, and later with the was scepter. The tiet is associated with Isis and is often called "the knot of Isis" or "the blood of Isis." It seems to be called "the knot of Isis" because it resembles a knot used to secure the garments that the gods wore. The meaning of "the blood of Isis" is more obscured but it was often used as a funerary amulet made of a red stone or glass. In the Late Period the sign was associated with the goddesses Nephthys, Hathor, and Nut as well as with Isis. In all these cases it seems to represent the ideas of resurrection and eternal life.
Could this possibly mean re-incarnation? Why, Jesus himself died, was resurrected and said to again be reborn unto this land one day.

Bel- you are describing the well-known knot of Isis or tjet amulet. Not the red-rope belt.

I realize this; but it occured to me that the symbol of the red rope belt is one of eternity. I have made the sign , under my signature for many year's. I believe the tiet is more closely related that you may think.
