And he said unto them, verily I say unto you, that there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
1 Corinthians 6:14
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17Then we which are alive and remain shall be (caught up) together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Perhaps the egytpians copied the hebrew tradition of wrapping in stips of Linen cloth's, and some called those in tombs mummies, Because they were wrapped in strip's of Linen cloth's. Perhaps the egytpians learned this tradition from the Hebrew people that were in egypt at that time...
The Hebrew tradition, and the Hebrew people would place a single napkin over the face, as they did with lazarus, and Jesus Christ, and they wrapped the bodies in strip's (plural) of Linen cloth's.
Jesus Christ was also wrapped in strip's of Linen cloth's, and a napkin over his face John 20:7 And (the napkin) that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
They did not use a so-called one cloth, Shroud of Turin to cover the face, and body...
*There is no Image's of what King Jesus Christ looks like, No man made image's, Pictures, Artwork, there is none... One must Worship God in the spirit!
The hour cometh, and NOW is,
But (the hour cometh, and now is) when the (true) worshippers shall (worship the Father in spirit and in truth) for (the Father seeketh such to worship him)(God is a Spirit) and they that worship him (must) worship him in spirit and in truth)
For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
Jesus Christ Was Buried In Cloth's, Not A Cloth. The Jews had a specific manner of burying people at that time, which included the body being wrapped in strip's of cloth, usually Linen. A number of pieces were routinely used, not just one big piece.
For example, Lazarus when he was resurrected: "The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with bandages(Graveclothes, Strip's of Linen cloth) and his face wrapped with a cloth (Napkin) Jesus said to them, " Unbind him, and let him go." (John 11:43- 44 KJV)
Lazarus didn't just throw off a big sheet, he had to be unbound, like a "mummy." Jesus Christ was buried exactly the same way, according to Jewish burial customs of the time, wrapped in strip's of cloth (i.e. cloth's, not a cloth) Not in a single sheet . All 4 gospel books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John state that the burial of Jesus Christ was done by Joseph Of Arimathea, and Nicodemus by wrapping the body in strip's, not a single large sheet. Matthew 27:59, Mark 15:46, and Luke 23:53 describe Jesus 'body being wrapped "in linen cloth," not "in a linen cloth." John 19:40 is much more specific, describing strip's of linen cloth, not a single sheet , as is the Shroud of Turin. All of the actual eyewitnesses to the burial of the Christ would say that the " Shroud of Turin " could not be the burial cloth of Christ because He was buried in a number of strip's of cloth, not a single cloth.
" Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury" (John 19:40 KJV)
When they entered the empty tomb after Christ's resurrection, what is described as being there was not a single-sheet shroud that became the Shroud of Turin, but strip's of cloth, plural, " laid by themselves":
" Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves " (Luke 24:12 KJV)
And (the napkin) that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes(plural) but wrapped together in a place by itself.
Jesus Christ Would Not Violate The Second Commandment. There were no cameras in ancient times, and yet we know what many people from the time of Christ looked like, from coins, figures, and etchings. But not a single image of Christ was made by the thousands of people who knew exactly what He looked like. Why? Because they would not violate the Second Commandment - and neither would the Son of God by having His image produced on a cloth for millions to idolize as they do with that shroud. The Shroud of Turin, when it is used to worship, is a blatant violation of the Second Commandment against making religious image's of any likeness, of anything in heaven above.
Exodus 20:4 KJV
"You shall not make for yourself a 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. "
The apostles, and all the Chosen brethren listened to instruction, and feared God, and did not have or make any Images, Artwork etc, of the Lord Jesus Christ. As the people now are told not to make any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above.
2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, (not by sight)
Linen (plural) clothes, More than one(strip's of Linen) and only a single napkin on his face...
And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen (plural) clothes lying; yet went he not in.
6Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen (plural) clothes lie,
7 And (the napkin) that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes (plural) but wrapped together in a place by itself.
The folded napkin...
*In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin was sharing, (I am coming back) and every Jewish boy knew this tradition.
When the servant set the dinner table for the king, he made sure that it was exactly the way the king wanted it. The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the king had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the king was finished.
Now if the king were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, and his mouth, and would wad up that napkin, and toss it onto the table. The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, 'I'm done'.
But if the king got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because...
The folded napkin meant, 'I'm coming back!'
King Jesus Christ is Coming Back!
