We thank our dear Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ of Nazareth for blessing this little booklet.
The Shroud of Turin is a subject that many believers dare to tread.
Authors Simon Brown and Caspar McCloud dared, and present the biblical and latest scientific evidence that brings in the absolute proof of the Shroud's extraordinary validity.
The glorious name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is raised, inviting and enticing all souls to be saved. Amen.
John 3:15 - That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
However, it must be noted as in most cases the enemy of our souls will do his best to attack, destroy, and distort the truth, in order to deceive people from the glorious plan of God for their life's.
Keep a lookout for Part two of the "Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself" as biblical researchers Brown and McCloud continue to expound and inform you with the most up-to-date facts and recent findings. In Part 2 Brown and McCloud also give you the solid biblically based answers you will need that demolishes the arguments of all those "Doubting Thomas" of the world, along with those uninformed ones who speak against the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin.
Brown and McCloud easily dismantle and debunk the arguments of all those who claim the "Shroud", is somehow a work of the devil that will somehow lead people into a false form of Christianity in the great deception that is coming.
We don't need the Shroud of Turin to prove Jesus Christ is the Messiah as we have the Bible and our personal encounters with the Lord. However we also have the evidence of Christ's burial cloth and that jolly well can help you lead your friends and neigbours into salvation.
Part two of the "Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself" will be helpful for the true believer to rebut all those individuals who so often misquote the Holy Scriptures to you like Deuteronomy 5:8 "Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:" So they erroneously conclude that the image on Shroud can not be of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah Yeshua, not taking into consideration His physical likeness was present on earth at the time and that in fact no man made this supernatural image. Keeping in mind all things are possible with God, and still no one today with all the advances in technology can reproduce a three dimensional image of the body of Jesus Christ of Nazareth encoded onto a two dimensional linen Shroud.
WHO AND WHAT DO WE WORSHIP?
Let us make it clear at the start, as true born again believers we do not worship images or the Shroud of Turin, or bow down to statues for that matter. But we love and worship Jesus Christ of Nazareth, (YESHUA ) who was sent by the Father from heaven and as is written in John 1 who in the beginning was the Word who was with God and who is God, WHO is the same yesterday and today and forever, the Anointed One, Immanuel" the Lamb, He is: The I AM. THE GATE John 10:9 I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE John 6:35 I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD John 10:11: I AM THE TRUE VINE John 15:1: I AM FROM ABOVE John 8:23: I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD John 8:12, THE STREAMS OF LIVING WATER. John 7:38 I AM THE SON OF GOD John 10:36: I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE John 11:25 I AM THE GOD OF YOUR FATHERS Exodus 3:15.
I AM, the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Revelation 22:13 I AM, (YESHUA ) JESUS CHRIST. Acts 9:5: I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, John 14:6.
WHY DO WE BELIEVE AND SUPPORT THE SHROUD OF TURIN?
Because The Shroud of Turin is like the calling card of the Lord Jesus and we consider it to be a gift from Father God above, We believe it establishes scientific and historical proof of the reliability of the Bible and also perhaps-just for the sceptics' and doubting Thomas's in your life-the supernatural evidence of God's Holy love for humans recorded in the extraordinary image on the Shroud.
We believe it is a good defensive piece of evidence to prove to the atheists, scoffers, sceptics and those misinformed at universities in academia that Father God so loved the would that He indeed sent His only begotten son, that we who were not alive 2000 years ago, can still see the physical evidence today and come to the resurrected Jesus Christ of Nazareth and be saved.
It also seems rather plausible as you study the Shroud of Turin to show yourself approved of the Lord, that the Apostle Paul and the early church congregations may have been aware of the image and mystery of the Lord's burial Shroud. 1 Corinthians 15:51 "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed," May take on new meaning here. You will find this and much more in Part two of the "Shroud of Turin Speaks for Itself"
