We Belong To Christ, and We Have A Receipt to Prove it!

The Shroud of Turin an Enduring Mystery. Part 5 End.


Dear friends, I am pleased to reach the end of this amazing adventure and Series. 

Watching and re editing Raymond J. Schneider research on the Shroud of Turin has led me to my own discovery, a discovery of believing we may think we know it all, until we open our hearts and listen to others, we find others know a lot more, and what we know was very small.

This is an astonishing story, full of twist's and turns, and a heroic adventure going back 2000 years to the ancient histories and mysteries of God/Jesus, His disciples and Holy Bible, where we looked at a treasure which has immense religious, political and historical importance and has uncovered an element of surprise, from carbon dating proving the Shroud was a great hoax,
Shroud of Turin is a hoax.
to countless and brilliant investigation's by the best experts, researchers and scientist in history, proving the carbon dating of the Shroud, mistaken, notoriously inaccurate and flawed.
Now with extremely, astonishing scientific papers, evidence and articles confirming and evaluating the scientific, academic and professional work taking us on a  roller coaster  ride,  going right back to where Jesus spent His last hours at His crucifixion death and resurrection.
 Jesus on the cross from the gospel of John film.

We Followed Raymond back to a concealed mystery which emerged from its secret hiding places.

And yet there are still secrets not yet discovered, and it all started at Golgotha, by an extremely famous person, from an honourable counsellor, who was a rich man and secret disciple of Jesus who is now the famous Joseph of Arimathaea.

Joseph of Arimathaea became the founder of the greatest mysteries and most priceless treasure's in the world, the burial cloths that covered the body of Jesus, and the GREAT STONE that sealed our King in the rich man's tomb.

Including the popular legend of  keeping and being responsible for the Holy Grail, with people still searching, which connect's him to a traditional popular historical story and site, the founder of the earliest Christian church, known as the famous Glastonbury abbey in the UK.

Raymond showed us the overwhelming evidence, where Joseph took the body of Jesus and wrapped it in fine linen and laid it in his own new tomb cut out of rock.
Joseph of Arimathaea proved to be a true Samaritan who assisted and created the most debatable and controversial artefacts known in world history, which many now believe is, The Shroud of Turin and The Sudarium of Oviedo .

We went over sea's, mountains, and terrain, following Ray as he showed us the history of the Shroud and the forensic medical science.

We looked at what many believe is the very face of Jesus, God's actual real perfect blood, the torture of the forty lashes, the scars and pierced body, and the painful puncture wounds from the crown of thorns.

We saw the humiliation Jesus patiently and humbly endured by the Romans, who punched and bruised His swollen cheekbones.
His agony from the blood shed of His pierced hands and feet, that bears silent witness to the horror of the cross. 
That bears the spear wound in His side, and yes, the ultimate triumph of the Resurrection of Jesus (Yeshua) meaning Salvation.
God's supernatural love is clearly preserved like a fossil in a time capsule, 'for all humans' to gain faith and have no excuse not to believe and follow Jesus and be saved.
Our kind creator has beautiful, gracefully, elegantly, sufficiently, clearly, preserved and revealed to all believers, the rock solid evidence for those who doubt the Christian faith.

Seek and you will find said Jesus, and when we do we truly find the Christian faith is no blind faith, thanks be to God who has lovingly provided 'real scientific fact's' proving and confirming every single word recorded in the Gospels over 2000 years ago is a matter of actual certainty, in deed, truthful and truly reliable.

The most important time in history, when God Himself became the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, who so bravely, voluntary and amazingly, humbly gave His life to buy our soul's and grant us eternal life, when we believe and follow, was all recorded supernaturally as a 3 D hologram. All because: God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:8 - 9. The topographical 3 d image of the Shroud created by the VP-8 computer ©1978 Barrie M.

Said by a group of 26 scientists, 'could not be reproduced' with the best applications machinery and devices ever developed by scientific knowledge in world history.
Jesus said: unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possibleMatthew 19:26.

We followed Ray through his course divided into five sessions; 1) Introduction, 2) Science, 3) History, 4) Sceptics & Images, 5) Integration & Conclusions.

And I have to say, while editing the last part 5, it truly touched my heart, Ray talked about Concept Four, while Ray was at a Russ Breault conference, Russ explained about, 
The Proof of Purchase.

(See slide below)
The Shroud of Turin an Enduring Mystery part 5.

My Conclusions.
As The Great Stone at Mount Nebo overlooking the promised land is a testimony by God Almighty reminding all mankind that he sent from heaven an angel to roll away the stone, so is, The Shroud of Turin, truly a visible witness to God's word and love in His Holy Bible, signifying that the debt was fully paid, and Yeshua is now legally discharged, and So are those who believe and follow him. 
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 

I now believe, The Shroud of Turin,
 is no longer an Enduring Mystery.
 The End. 

I am Simon Brown. 
May God bless you.

Did Jesus die on April 3rd 33 AD?

Jesus on the cross
Did Jesus die on April 3rd 33 AD?
On the day of April 3rd 33 AD there was a total eclipse of the moon in Jerusalem, and it is interesting when Peter talks about Jesus later, at Pentecost he mentions the prophet Joel and a blood moon. By Raymond J. Schneider.

The Shroud of Turin an Enduring Mystery Part 4 HD,


Ray contiinues to say:
Scholars have narrowed down the possible dates of Christ's crucifixion (depending on the accounts in the New Testament for clues) to either April 7th 30 A.D. or April 3rd 33 A.D. -- now frankly I don't care very much which it is but there are two dates and if you want to take a position you should pick one. There are a variety of reasons that I have for preferring 33 A.D. 1) Jesus was about thirty when he started his ministry which took three years at least there are three Passovers in John, 2) I think the notion of a 40 year period while the Chosen people can decide to come in before the judgment of Jerusalem is a bit more consistent if counted from the beginning of the ministry as 30 A.D. (BTW this isn't exactly a biblical claim but something like it is implied by the gospels), 3) the blood moon on April 3rd 33 A.D. would explain why Peter chose to quote Joel ... it wouldn't be a sign if they had not just seen it.

Now all of that is interesting but it isn't really conclusive.  The scholars may be wrong.  The dating may be deficient.  The symbolism while interesting may only be fanciful.  Pilate was prefect of Judea from 26 A.D. to about 37 A.D. possibly 36 A.D. so the crucifixion has to be in that date range.  All in all 33 A.D. just makes the most sense to me.

THE THREE TOMBS OF LAZARUS.

THE THREE TOMBS OF LAZARUS

Why did Lazarus have three tombs? By Simon Brown


Lazarus In Luke 16:19 and  Lazarus In John 11.

In my previous articles I have talked about my long and thorough research on the two Lazarus' in Luke 16:19 and John 11 of which I believe are the same person. I also believe that there are very important facts that can only help our faith, even though not all will agree I know. However, I believe that those who do believe that the story of Luke 16:19 in which real, actual events took place, rather then a parable, will most certainly be strengthened by knowing that the rich man in this story told by Jesus was a real person who died and that his soul continues to live on after death in a real horrifying place.
But it also has a great side to this story of hope and redemption of a new life for us immediately after our first death knowing that our souls go to heaven, for those who put their trust in Jesus. I also believe that by believing that both Lazarus' in Luke 16:19 and John 11 are one and the same person it adds weight to the story of Luke 16:19 being real events that happened, and therefore it brings a consciousness of how we live our everyday lives to the forefront of our thinking and therefore affects how we live and act, speak and make decisions.

In short, it acts as a deterrent whilst we are living. A warning, yes, but also Jesus’ way of helping us to depart from sin for those who believe and  listen in order to help us enter into heaven. Interestingly, I find those believers who do not believe that Lazarus and the rich man in Luke 16:19 to be a story of real events but instead believe it to be a parable, these same groups of believers generally also seem to believe in the unbiblical doctrine of SOUL SLEEP which by believing in soul sleep I believe can do only one thing, weaken the deterrent Jesus made for us.

How can one person have three tombs?

The answer is because Jesus performed a wonderful miracle only God could do at that time, and one thing is for sure, there aren't many people who have been buried twice, who have been dead for 4 days and then raised back to life in between, by the power of God.
Lets read what the Bible tells us about this miracle.
The Death of Lazarus

1Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair. 3So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.”4When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” 5Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.7Then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”8“But Rabbi,” they said, “a short while ago the Jews tried to stone you, and yet you are going back there?”9Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? A man who walks by day will not stumble, for he sees by this world’s light. 10It is when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light.”11After he had said this, he went on to tell them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.”12His disciples replied, “Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.” 13Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep.14So then he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead, 15and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”16Then Thomas (called Didymus) said to the rest of the disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with him.”Jesus Comforts the Sisters17On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. 18Bethany was less than two milesa from Jerusalem, 19and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. 20When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.21“Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”23Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”24Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”25Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”27“Yes, Lord,” she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”28And after she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary aside. “The Teacher is here,” she said, “and is asking for you.” 29When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him. 30Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. 31When the Jews who had been with Mary in the house, comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her, supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there.32When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”33When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34“Where have you laid him?” he asked. “Come and see, Lord,” they replied.35Jesus wept.36Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!”37But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?”

Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead

38Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39“Take away the stone,” he said.“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”40Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”41So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”43When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.

Where is this Tomb where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead?


There is a very well known place thought to be the traditional spot of where this wonderful miracle took place.
It is about 2 miles from the Holy City of Jerusalem, on the southeast slope of the Mount of Olives in the West Bank town of Al-Eizariya, which is believed to be the famous biblical village of Bethany.
It receives 1000's of visitors from all over the world every year, people who gaze at the entrance, with the sound of Jesus’ voice in their heads declaring LAZARUS, COME FORTH!!
After 4 days of Lazarus’ soul being in a compartment called paradise in Hades God raises his soul back into his dead rotten body, still wrapped up in strips of linen. Their hearts fill with joy as they continue to stand there thinking of the divine words of Jesus, saying “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”

The entrance to the tomb we see here is not the original entrance as this entrance is through the mosque which can still be seen on the east wall.
As you walk in and down the twenty-four uneven rock-cut steps from the modern entrance from ground level you come to a square chamber serving as a place of prayer, it then continues down more steps which then leads to the proposed famous tomb of Lazarus.

Evidence of Veneration

There is recorded evidence that there were many Christian churches' built on the site that go back to the time of a Roman historian, exegete and Christian 
polemicist. He became the Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine about the year 314.
The many churches that have come and gone, fallen and rebuilt, is evidence of a place of Veneration.
There is also evidence of this place being dedicated to Saint Lazarus, called the Lazarium, by a 
RomanChristian priestconfessor, theologian and historian, in 390.
Here is more evidence that I find interesting that sheds more light on this tomb being the tomb of Lazarus. There is surviving information about Egeria who was a woman who travelled to the Holy Land in 381–384. She kept records of her journeys to this place which we can still see read today.
I believe it could well be the genuine tomb because it was one of the most loved and popular miracles Jesus performed. I believe this would be a place remembered and not be easily forgotten.


Second Tomb of Lazarus
A few quick facts for you.

Autun Cathedral.

I wrote in a previous article that various historical sources indicate that the resurrected Lazarus, brother of Mary Magdalene, travelled across Europe to France and then England following the resurrection of Jesus. Roman-style artwork in several French locations portray Lazarus becoming Lazarus the apostle. 
Interestingly there is also a church in France called Autun Cathedral. It is a historical building in Burgundy and holds the relics of Lazarus. Lazarus was also said to have been the first Bishop of Marseilles having converted a number of the inhabitants of Marseilles to Christianity.

Third Tomb of Lazarus

If this is the case than how can there be a tomb with his name on it in The Church of Ayio in Cyprus. Well, there is a Greek Orthodox tradition that he fled to this Church from those trying to take his life and apparently was later consecrated Bishop of Kition by Paul and Barnabas.

It is also a fact that the relics of the Saints were taken from their original place to anther country and they would house or even build a church to keep the famous parts of the Holy Saints or Prophets.

Rachel Bellerby states:
Any Religious relics or items from Holy Sites were the crowd-pullers of the medieval age. Any church or monastery that could lay claim to a relic would be assured of a steady stream of visitors. A relic was an item which was believed to be an authentic physical part of a religious figure, such as a saint, the Virgin Mary, or even Jesus. Relics included his crown of thorns or parts of his cross and nails. Below is believed to be the True Cross it is the name for physical remnants which, by a Christian tradition are believed to be from the cross upon which Jesus was crucified, even his robe that the Romans played a game over for. Most remembered was the Holy Grail with people still looking for it today. Ludicrous still to the modern mind, such as a drop of the breast milk of the Virgin Mary, a phial of Christ’s blood or one of Jesus’ baby teeth. Some relics could be visited at the place they were housed, such as the milk of the Virgin Mary at England’s Walsingham Abbey. Why were relics so important?
Many people believed that relics were invested with heavenly powers and that to be close to a relic, or even better, to touch one, would provide a person with spiritual blessings, divine protection and even a cure from illness. So for these reasons anything to do with Holy People and Holy Sites were priceless.

This is why we can sometimes find that well known people like Lazarus had more than one tomb.

Thank you for reading this article and I hope you found it enlightening. May God bless those who seek him, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.

HOW GOD OVERTHREW THE SODOMITES FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS.

HOW GOD OVERTHREW THE SODOMITES FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS

HOW GOD OVERTHREW THE SODOMITES FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS

Genesis 18:20
Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous 21 that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."
By FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS.
 
About this time, the Sodomites grew proud on account of their riches and great wealth.
They became unjust towards men and impious towards God, insomuch that they did not call to mind the advantages they received from him. They hated strangers and abused themselves with the practice of Sodomy.
God was therefore much displeased with them, and determined to punish then for their pride, and to overthrow their city, and to lay waste their country, until there should neither plant nor fruit grow out.
Here he again refers to their affluence and the fruitfulness of the land. Apart from the fruit and food, they had wealth in other forms. Bitumen for the caulking of ships, preservation of bodies and medicinal use, and salt from the Dead Sea, a valuable commodity indeed.
It was said that the Egyptians bought their embalming fluids from this area.
He goes on: It was of old a most happy land, both for the fruits it bore and for the riches of its cities, although it be now all burnt up. It is related how for the impurity of its inhabitants, it was burnt by lightning. 

In the consequences of which there are still the remains of the divine fire, and the traces (or shadows) of five cities are still to be seen. 

So he confirms that these cities are still there now to be seen and that they are all burnt up. You have seen the pictures of the strange shaped buildings surrounded by tons of ash, so judge for yourselves.
Sodom and Gomorrah


Josephus goes on to describe the arrival of angels in Sodom:
And the angels came to the city of the Sodomites and Lot entreated them to accept lodging with him, for he was a very generous man, and one that had learned to imitate the goodness of Abraham Now when the Sodomites saw the young men to be beautiful of countenance to an extraordinary degree, and that they took up lodgings with Lot, they resolved themselves to enjoy these beautiful boys by force and violence.
And Lot exalted them to sobriety and not to offer anything immodest to the strangers, but to have regard to their lodgings in the house, and promised that if their inclinations could not be governed, he would expose his daughters to their lust instead of these strangers. Neither thus were they made ashamed, but God was much displeased at their impudent behaviour, so that He both smote these men with blindness and condemned the Sodomites to universal destruction.
But Lot, upon God's informing him of the future destruction of the Sodomites, went away taking with him his wife and daughters, who were two, and still virgins.
So Josephus re-tells the biblical story from the perspective of 2,000 years ago, and in great detail. He goes on to say that God set Sodom and Gomorrah on fire: with its inhabitants and laid waste to the country with the like burning.

Was Albert Einstein A Born Again Believer?

Français : Albert Einstein, photographie officielle du Prix Nobel de Physique 1921.

Author Unknown

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

World-renowned scientist. Born in Germany and educated in German schools. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1922. Dr. Einstein served as professor of mathematics and theoretical science
at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton University, 1933 to 1945.
The following is an excerpt from an interview printed in The Saturday
Evening Post, Oct. 26, 1929 entitled, "What Life Means to Einstein"...
Q. To what extent are you influenced by Christianity?

A. As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene.
Q. Have you read Emil Ludwig's book of Jesus?

A. Emil Ludwig's Jesus is shallow. Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrasemongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot.

Q. Do you accept the historical existence of Jesus?
A. Unquestionably! No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

World-renowned mathematician and philosopher ranked in the same class as Sir Isaac Newton. Introduced the first calculating machine, forerunner of the modern computer. The metric unit of measuring pressure, the
Pascal, is named after him.

The following is an excerpt from an interview printed in Great Books of the Western World, No. 33:
Pascal left on record that he had come to know "the God of Abraham, God of Isaac and God of Jacob", and that he "resolved total submission to Jesus the Messiah".

Pascal reached the conclusion that the only serious quest here on Earth was for God, and that the path to Him was charted in the Old Testament, the sign was posted in the New Testament, and the light that illuminated
the path was his faith.

This is the conclusion of the entire matter: Fear God and keep His Commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every deed into His judgment, together with every secret thing, whether
it is good, or whether it is evil. [Eccl 12:13-14]
