“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
Much has been said and written about the alleged linen burial cloth of the Messiah — the Shroud of Turin. But how ‘holy’ is this garment? Over the years, it has sparked debate over its authenticity. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathederal of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, although its origins are ‘unknown’.
“You shall not make for yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them, nor worship them; for I, Yahweh your Father, Am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me. And showing mercy to thousands of those that love Me, and keep My commandments.” Exodus 20:4-6
This is the second commandment given to us by Yahweh, so why would the Messiah, Yahshua, always given to His Father’s will, leave behind an image of Himself for us to worship?
Veneration of the Shroud
So if the garment is a lie, what is its purpose, and what are its true origins? How could it have been faked?
“Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic spirits that perform witchcraft, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of Yahweh Almighty. ‘Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.'” Revelation 16:13-15
“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an Angel of Light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as Servants of Righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” 2 Corinthians 11:14-15
We forget that Satan was once an Archangel and has the ability to perform miracles, as do his angels. The shroud is a fake, given to us to fool us into idol worship. The shroud is really a symbolic image of the pagan god Jesus Christ, who was created by Roman Emperor Constantine.
There is even a medal of the ‘holy face’ taken from the shroud’s image:
On one side the medal features a replica of the face image from the Shroud of Turin and the inscription: Illumina, Domine, Vultum Tuum Super Nos, (May, O Lord, the light of Thy countenance shine upon us). The reverse side of the medal is an image of a radiant ‘Sacred Host’ (a sunburst, depicting sun worship), the monogram of the ‘Holy Name’ (IHS — which is Greek for Ihsous, the name of the pagan god Jesus created by Roman Emperor Constantine), and the inscription: Mane Nobiscum, Domine (Stay with us, O Lord).
The ‘Hail Mary’ and the ‘Glory Be’
The Catholic Church has a prayer, ‘Hail Mary’, taught to its followers, deifying Astarte, Satan’s human wife in the pre-flood world, and mother of Tammuz/Jesus (worshipped by Christians as the pagan goddess Mary, whom worshippers are led to believe is Miriam, Yahshua’s mother). In the prayer, Mary is referred to as being ‘full of grace’.
The only mention of ‘full of grace’ in the Scriptures is reserved for Yahshua:
“The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His Glory, the Glory of the one and only Son, Who came from the Father, full of Grace and truth.” John 1:14
A literal translation of the TEXTUS RECEPTUS Greek (The Interlinear Bible, Jay P. Green, Sr) reads:
“And entering, the Angel said to her, ‘Hail, one having received grace! …… You are blessed among women!'” Luke 1:28
Miriam was the blessed recipient of Yahweh’s Grace, but only her Son, Yahshua, was born without sin, and, therefore, full of Grace. Miriam was born of an earthly father and so inherited the original sin.
“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.” Romans 5:12
Yahshua’s Father is Yahweh (Isaiah 7:14) and He was born without sin and never sinned, throughout His Life.
“Yahweh made Him Who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of Yahweh.” 2 Corinthians 5:21
“For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to empathise with our weaknesses, but we have One Who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet He did not sin.” Hebrews 4:15
There is also no mention in the Scriptures of Miriam being assumed into heaven. This is another lie from the church.
The ‘Glory Be’ is another misleading prayer, as it glorifies Yahweh as a TRINITY, instead of ONE true Almighty Creator.
“I Am the Alpha and the Omega,” says Yahweh, “Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8
The only prayer given to us is the ‘Our Father’.
“This, then, is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven,
holy be Your Name,
Your Kingdom come,
Your Will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one:
For Yours is the Kingdom, and the Power,
and the Glory, for ever.'” Matthew 6:9-13
The rosary, the scapular, sacred heart, divine mercy and the ‘saints’:
“Yahshua answered, ‘I Am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'” John 14:6
All religions of the world, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Quaker, Amish, Mormonism, Jainism, indigenous religions… worship the devil, fallen angels and demons. Their priests, nuns and monks are all witches who practice witchcraft and divination, which is forbidden (Deuteronomy 18:10-11, 14). The masses and services performed in their churches, mosques, temples and synagogues are Satanic rituals.
Whenever one is baptised and confirmed by these witches, the anointing comes from hell, not from heaven. They do not have the power to cast out demons or cleanse one’s house. When you invite them to cast out demons, they invoke evil spirits and make their grip on the victim stronger. It may appear as though the person has been delivered, but it’s just a trick.
The only way one can be delivered of demonic possession is by invoking the Names of the Living God, Almighty Yahweh, and His Son Yahshua. All sacrifices, including blood sacrifices, are forbidden. In the Book of Isaiah, it is written that Yahshua, the Messiah, was to be the final blood sacrifice (Isaiah 53). No other sacrifice would be required or accepted after Him (Isaiah 66:3-4). Any animals slaughtered and offered as blood sacrifices for cleansing rituals are being offered to fallen angels and demons.
When you invite these witches to cleanse your house, they use candles, salt (which are crystals) and ‘holy water’, and invoke evil spirits to invite them into your home. Witches use candles, salt and water to perform rituals, and prayer beads called the ‘witch’s ladder’.
Rosary beads or prayer beads are used by Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Bahá’ís and Catholics, among other religions. Their origin dates far back, to the beginning of pagan worship, when mankind began worshipping fallen angels as pagan gods, before the Great Flood. Islamic prayer beads, called Misbaha or Tasbih, usually have 99 or 33 beads. Buddhist and Hindus use the Japa Mala which usually has 108 beads, or 27 which are counted four times. Bahá’í prayer beads consist of either 95 beads or 19 beads strung with the addition of five beads below. The Sikh Mala also has 108 beads. Roman Catholics use the Rosary (Latin rosarium, meaning ‘rose garden’) with 54 and additional five beads whereas Eastern Orthodox Christians use a knotted Rosary with 100 knots, although ‘prayer ropes’ with 50 or 33 knots can also be used. Although Anglo-Catholics have used the Dominican rosary since the 19th century, in the 1980s Reverend Lynn Bauman from the Episcopal Church in the United States of America introduced a Rosary for Anglicans with 33 beads.
Prayer beads, or prayer rosaries, are really another form of the ‘witch’s ladder’, a knotted rope or cord used to count repetitions during a spell or ritual. Praying with beads is a spiritual practice with a long history in most of the world’s religions. — Sacred Mists Shoppe by Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone
Before the 12th century, rosaries were used for talismans (amulet or occult charms). Rosaries and prayer beads were intended by the Catholic Church hierarchy for use by the ignorant. — A History of Praying on Beads by Patricia A. Dilley

Bahá’i prayer beads
The Scriptures warns us against use of prayer beads:
“And when you pray, do not repeat the same words over and over as the Gentiles do, for they think they will be heard for their much speaking.” Matthew 6:7
The repetitive prayers said on these beads are incantations to invoke evil spirits.
The rosary, scapular, religious medals and crosses are worn as talismans and amulets (cursed and pagan symbols), out of ‘devotion’ or for ‘protection’. However, the only protection you need is faith in Yahweh, Yahshua and the Angels and Archangels.
And holy water and holy/anointing oil is a sham. The shell used to hold this water in Catholic churches is a solar symbol, denoting sun worship. The shell is an occult symbol for the universe and for moving across the zodiac.
Only the anointing oil used by the priests of Yahweh — Levite priests, those consecrated to the Most High — is holy.
Devotion to the ‘sacred heart’ has its origins in pagan worship:
Human sacrifice, particularly by offering a victim’s heart to the sun god, was commonly practiced, as was bloodletting. — Encyclopedia Britannica online (Aztec)
As seen on the stone carving from Cozumel, the pagan Aztecs/Mayans of Mexico would cut the heart out of a living victim and offer it as a sacrifice to the sun god, in this case, Kukulcan/Quetzalcoatl, also known as the Feathered Serpent.
The image of the ‘sacred heart’ is a sunburst:
The image of the ‘divine mercy’ is a pyramid with an All-Seeing Eye (occult symbolism):
The halo on the image is also a sunburst, denoting sun worship, the same as the halos on the images of ‘saints’.
Only Yahweh knows what is hidden in our hearts, therefore, only He has the authority to make a man a saint, the church has no such authority. Yahshua has told us He is the only way to heaven and to the Almighty, so we should not be deceived into praying to or through His mother Miriam, His father Joseph, ‘saints’ or our ancestors.
There are those who have claimed to have seen visions of the Virgin Mary (Astarte/Isis), ‘saints’ and Jesus (Tammuz/Anti-Messiah), who told them to offer prayers to them, and gave them the rosary, scapular or certain prayers or asked them to make medals of devotion. These are evil spirits, who shape-shift and take on human forms, as are dreams and visions of dead people — after one dies it is impossible to return to earth in spirit form or communicate with the living (see Where do we go when we die?).
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from Yahweh, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1
Miriam is DEAD, therefore, it is IMPOSSIBLE for her to speak to us or hear our prayers.
We should not keep any graven images.
This includes holograms, pictures, paintings, carvings, engravings, drawings, dolls, statues, statuettes, figurines, sculptures, puppets/marionettes, stuffed animals or other toys, slippers/shoes with faces, masks, hats shaped like animals, caps with faces, bags with faces, bags shaped like animals, fox stoles, robots, mannequins, ventriloquist dummies, images on stained glass windows, wax figures, candles, coins, matryoshka, tapestry, museum dummies, piggy banks, cartoons, animated films, sarcophagii, paper cut-outs of animals or people, cardboard cut-outs of animals or people, lamps shaped like animals or people, mugs with faces, cakes shaped like animals or people, human topiary, animal topiary, candlesticks shaped like animals or people, stuffed and mounted game, sleeping bags shaped like animals, sleeping bags with faces, ships shaped like sea or land creatures, totem poles, mascots, costumes designed like animals or people or cartoon characters, rubber ducks used in baths, scarecrows, hot air balloons, carousel rides, bouncy castles, garden gnomes, dodgem/bumper cars… made in the image of ANYTHING in heaven, on earth, or the waters below.
Many people also keep and revere pictures, posters and statues/statuettes of their gods, celebrities, man-made ‘saints’, religious and political leaders, and Angels. This is WRONG.
Drawings, pictures and illustrations for the purpose of educating, informing and enlightening (including pop-up books for children) are permitted, but NOT in the Scriptures and NEVER of Holy Spiritual Beings.
You may think it perfectly innocent to buy and keep any of these items in your homes, but remember: It is FORBIDDEN. If you have any graven images in your homes, offices or other business premises: BURN THEM WITH FIRE.
Dishes, coasters, table mats, calendars, cards, postcards and knick knacks that depict these graven images should also be destroyed.
It is alright to embellish clothes, cushion covers, bedcovers, oven mitts, potholders, tea cosies, aprons, table linen, table mats, wall hangings, rugs, curtains, carpets, decorative coverings, etc, with animals, birds, fish, flowers, trees, etc, and take and keep pictures of loved ones — family and friends — as long as we do NOT idolise them.
We should not form images in our minds of Yahweh, Yahshua, Archangels or Angels when we pray or meditate, for, if we do, evil spirits can shape-shift into these images and give us misleading information.
“For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
