Benefits of Epsom Salt Baths: A Powerful and Cheap Detoxifier

Epsom salts have been used to treat a variety of health ailments by numerous cultures for centuries. Epsom salt baths have astounding health benefits and are an excellent way to de­stress and detoxify the whole body. However, these salts are not just beneficial for healing the human body. ­They are are useful as household cleaners and can even nourish the garden. You can find bulk Epsom salts at gardening stores almost everywhere, making them a real health bargain.

The name Epsom salts comes from its origination of a bitter saline spring found at Epsom in Surrey, England. Unlike other naturally occurring salts, Epsom salts are formed from a pure mineral compound containing magnesium and sulfate. Both magnesium and sulfate stimulate detoxification pathways in the body.

Epsom Salt Baths Help Prevent Magnesium Deficiency

More than 325 enzymes in our bodies require magnesium to properly function. Magnesium stimulates nerve and muscle function, limits inflammation, and improves oxygenation and blood flow through the body. Deficiencies in magnesium can cause significant damage to nerves which manifest in symptoms associated with depression.

Magnesium and sulfate are both fine consistency minerals that can be absorbed through our skin and taken up into the bloodstream. Just as your skin perspires to remove toxins through your pores, these same pores also allow minerals in.

Recall the process of reverse osmosis to understand the process which moves toxins out of the body and pulls magnesium and sulfate inward. When you soak in bathwater containing epsom salts, reverse osmosis occurs to help cleanse your body.

How Epsom Salt Baths Help Cancer Patients

Magnesium can also improve cancer patients overall wellbeing. Both the struggles of being a cancer patient as well as a lack of magnesium in the body are associated with symptoms of depression. Taking Epsom salt baths daily can help relieve symptoms of the illness and also reduce anxiety and irritability and improve sleep patterns.

Other symptoms such as constipation (a common side effect of chemotherapeutic drugs) can also be relieved by taking Epsom salt baths. Magnesium salt promotes gastric activity in the intestines which provides a laxative effect. The stimulation of movement in the gut and colon further promotes detoxification processes.

Sulfates are essential for the optimal health of joints, skin, and nervous tissue. When absorbed through the skin, sulfates can promote the health of these tissues. Sulfates also bind toxic impurities in the liver to render them less hazardous. Specifically, the sulfur component of sulfate salts is what binds to toxins, ensuring their elimination from the body.

The once fat­-soluble toxin stored in the liver tissue is metabolized, becoming water soluble. It can then be effectively excreted as waste in urine. This detoxification pathway is referred to as Phase 2 liver detoxification, also known as the conjugation pathway. It is especially critical in cancer patients who have been overloaded with toxic chemotherapy drugs.

Phase 2 liver detoxification is dependent on co-factors such as sulfur to be absorbed by the body. In other words, without sulfur or other substances which bind to impurities, toxins from drugs and the environment accumulate and remain stored in the liver, causing dysfunction. When Phase 2 detoxification pathways are impaired, individuals may have symptoms of nausea, headaches and migraines, chronic fatigue, infections, chemical sensitivities, and bloating.

Cancer patients are particularly susceptible to these health concerns because of the high dose chemotherapeutic drugs used in treatment. Phase 2 detoxification pathways are involved in breaking down drugs and removing them from the body.

Epsom Salt Baths Reduce Inflammation

Epsom salts have been shown to improve many conditions associated with inflammation. Daily Epsom salt baths can treat gout, athlete’s foot, toenail fungus, bruises, sprains, and relax sore muscles. Individuals struggling with a chronic illness can also find pain relief from Epsom salt baths. This is due to the natural ability of the salts to pull out harmful toxins, improving both mineral and sulfur balance in the body.

However, you should not take Epsom salt baths if you are pregnant, have exposed cuts or burns on your skin, or are severely dehydrated. People who suffer from cardiovascular disease should first consult your doctor to see if it is safe to begin an Epsom salt bath regimen.

How to Take Epsom Salt Baths

Turn your Epsom salt bath treatment into a relaxing period as you will need at least 40 minutes to soak in the tub. Within the first 20 minutes of treatment the salts pull toxins out of your body through the skin. The second 20 minutes allows for the absorption of minerals to occur.

First you will need to fill up the bath with pure, warm water. A water filtration system in your home will improve your water’s quality ensuring that you do not soak in hazardous compounds such as chlorine, heavy metals, dioxins, or fluoride. Next, add the Epsom salts to the water as suggested below for standard sized bathtubs.

Children weighing under 60 lbs:

Pour 1⁄2 cup Epsom salts into water

Individuals weighing between 60­-100 lbs:

Pour 1 cup of Epsom salts into water

Individuals weighing between 100­-150 lbs:

Pour 1 1⁄2 cups of Epsom salts into water

Individuals weighing between 150­-200 lbs:

Pour 2 cups of Epsom salts into water

Individuals weighing over 200 lbs:

Use 1⁄2 cup of Epsom salts for every 50 lb interval range

Tips for Getting Maximum Benefit From Your Epsom Salts Bath

  1. Add olive oil to your bath − Try adding 1⁄2 cup of olive to your bath water. Polyphenols found in olive oil contain antioxidant benefits which are easily absorbed into the skin. (Note: if using oil in the tub, take extra precaution to avoid slips and falls.)
  2. Add herbs & spices − The addition of cayenne pepper or a piece of ginger into the bath water can raise your heat levels promoting your body to sweat and draw out more toxins. Adding these herbs can stimulate the detoxification pathways with as little as 1 tablespoon up to as much as 1⁄2 cup.
  3. Don’t use soap − Avoid using soap when taking an Epsom salt bath to ensure the ingredients of the soap do not interact with or prevent the detoxification process from occurring.
  4. Take it easy afterwards − Taking an Epsom salt bath at night may be most feasible to ensure that you can rest for at least one hour after afterwards. However, if you have arthritic joints, you may choose to have treatment in the morning. This will help ensure that you can stay as active as possible following the bath in order to limit fatigued and achy joints.
  5. Add essential oils − Turn your Epsom salts bath into a luxurious spa treatment by adding several drops of essential oils to the water. Therapeutic oils such as lavender essential oil and frankincense can promote relaxation and stimulate healing and/or just use any essential oil(s) that you enjoy.

Are you eating food offered to idols?

Another revelation I was given in Israel regarding how I was not obeying Elohim [Hebrew word for God and who I believe is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT] involved eating food offered to idols. Looking at the same verses I used for the study “Read Acts – blood is not food”, we find information on keeping away from what has been offered to idols. Acts 15:19 – “…abstain from things polluted by idols…”, Acts 15:29 – “abstain from what has been sacrificed/offered to idols…”, Acts 21:25 – “…abstain from what had been sacrificed/offered to idols…”.

Update on Asia Bibi

 Below is an updated article on what is going on with her. Below the article are links to petitions for her. Thank you for praying for our FATHER in Heaven’s Will to be accomplished, whether she will be released or whether she will be executed and receive a higher reward for going to her death and not giving up CHRIST/the MESSIAH. May what she has gone through be used to help bring down unrighteous laws in JESUS CHRIST the LORD’S/YAHSHUA HA’MASHIACH YHWH’S Beloved and Precious NAME, AMEN!

Can Asia Bibi Ever Win?

Pakistan’s Islamic radicals have taken another swipe at Asia Bibi, calling for her to be put to death, ignoring the rule of law and the legal proceedings currently underway. The woman has spent seven years in prison and her case is now being heard by the Supreme Court, the third and final stage in her trial.

The Supreme Court must decide whether to confirm Bibi’s death penalty or whether to release her and declare her innocent. Should the Court decide the latter, the woman and her family would need to leave the country immediately in order to avoid an extrajudicial execution, which some imams  given the bounty on her head openly encourage.

The extremist Islamic group Sunni Tehreek, which follows the Barelvi school of thought, has unleashed its supporters and sympathisers into the streets of Pakistan’s cities. On April 15 they yet again called for Bibi’s execution. The group has sent the government its umpteenth “coded message,” warning it not to change the infamous blasphemy law.

In an official statement, Sunni Tehreek accuses Nawaz Sharif’s government of wanting to gradually remove Sharia law from national legislation, “paving the way for transforming the country into a secular and liberal state.” And it announced: “We will not let a blasphemous woman go free.”

It is important to note that demonstrations which have been similar in terms of method, tone and issues, were witnessed at the end of March, after the execution of Mumtaz Qadri who was sentenced to death and killed at the start of March for killing Punjab governor Salman Taseer in 2011. Taseer, a Muslim, had become a target because of his criticism of the blasphemy law and the fact that he dared defend Asia Bibi, visiting her in prison and proclaiming her innocence. He criticized it because he was aware it was being misused and was mostly manipulated in order to resolve personal disputes.

Three weeks ago, around 1,000 demonstrators managed to penetrate Islamabad’s “red zone,” an area protected by the military, which includes institutional buildings. They held a heated four-day sit-in in front of Parliament, marked by an atmosphere of tension and strong pressure on the institutions.

The unauthorized pow-wow was broken up only after participants obtained written assurance from the government that it accepted their requests and would make any changes to the blasphemy law or any concessions to those convicted for blasphemy.

Today, the radicals are raising the stakes and challenging the government once again, taking advantage of the leader’s moment of political weakness: For days now, Nawaz Sharif has been involved in the Panama Papers scandal, the documents published by newspapers around the world, revealing the existence of offshore accounts held by politicians from a large number of nations. The name of Sharif’s family also cropped up, because of its links to three of the ruling prime minister’s children.

Pakistan’s opposition leader, Imran Khan, promised to lead a protest in front of the prime minister’s residence in Lahore, calling for his resignation. Sharif has tried to defend himself by announcing the establishment of an independent judicial commission but a fiery controversy has broken out over this proposal too and the government is going through a really rough period.

In this context, the country’s Interior Minister, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, announced a law banning all public demonstrations in the capital Islamabad, in an attempt to stop the wave of protests by extremist groups that stirred the sacred realm of democratic institutions.

All the more reason why the recent move by a group such as Sunni Tehreek represents an open challenge to the government. One of the effects of the institutional fragility that has intensified as a result of the Panama Papers scandal, is the definite shelving of any plans to change the blasphemy law, changes which only a few months ago seemed possible if not imminent.

Christians also fear the inauspicious effects on the fate of Asia Bibi, who is still locked up in a cell at a prison in Multan. Security measures have been tightened to ensure her protection after intelligence reports signalled attempts by Islamist groups to kill her in prison, out of revenge for Qadri’s hanging.

There is no respite for this woman, even inside a four-walled cell. In this highly tense climate, Asia Bibi’s team of lawyers is not too happy about the prospect of a brief hearing before the Supreme Court. It would be much better to wait for things to settle down. So more waiting. Bibi has spent the past seven years waiting for justice to be done. She has done so with the patience and prayerful demeanor of a woman of faith.

10 Commandments, Altars as “he” and “she”, Common/Profane/Wounded the Suffering Servant

The above link is from Jeffrey Benner’s site, Ancient Hebrew Research Center and his mechanical translation of the 10 Commandments. He has studied modern to late Hebrew and has gotten into the early and middle Hebrew as well [paleo to semetic]. Very interesting to read.

One item of big interest, I feel, looking at his study on Exodus/Sh’mot 20 is that altars made from earth are referred to as “he”. Altars made from stone look to be referred to as “she” and if the stone was hewn it says: “given that you waved your sword upon her, and you (made) her [common],”, which comes from “will much pierce her”. Excerpt below is about the altar made from hewn stone from the link at the top.

וְאִם מִזְבַּח אֲבָנִים תַּעֲשֶׂה לִּי לֹא תִבְנֶה אֶתְהֶן גָּזִית כִּי חַרְבְּךָ הֵנַפְתָּ עָלֶיהָ וַתְּחַלְלֶהָ

we’im miz’bahh a’va’nim ta’a’seh li lo tiv’neh et’hen ga’zit ki hhar’be’kha hey’naph’ta a’ley’ah wat’hhal’le’le’ah 

and~IF ALTAR STONE~s you(ms)~will~DO to~me NOT you(ms)~will~BUILD AT~them(f) HEWN-STONE GIVEN-THAT SWORD~you(ms) you(ms)~did~make~WAVE UPON~her and~you(ms)~will~much~PIERCE~her

and if you will (make) {an} altar {of} stones, you will not build them {of} hewn stone, given that you waved your sword upon her, and you (made) her [common],

So it sounds like an altar made from hewn stone is like a virgin made non-virgin to ELOHIM/GOD! On a similar note, I read a while back that what is profane is considered common in Scripture. So instead of using the words “common sense” I changed my word usage and instead say “good sense” to be more set-apart to ELOHIM/GOD. See this link for info on the Hebrew word “chalal = profane”:

https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H2490&t=KJV

חָלַל châlal, khaw-lal’; a primitive root (compare H2470); also denominative (from H2485) properly, to bore, i.e. (by implication) to wound, to dissolve; figuratively, to profane (a person, place or thing), to break (one’s word), to begin (as if by an ‘opening wedge’); to play (the flute):—begin (× men began), defile, × break, defile, × eat (as common things), × first, × gather the grape thereof, × take inheritance, pipe, player on instruments, pollute, (cast as) profane (self), prostitute, slay (slain), sorrow, stain, wound.

This also makes me think about Isaiah/Yesha’Yahu 53:5 –  “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Chalal is the word behind “wounded”. So the suffering servant was made wounded/profane/common/defiled for our iniquities! How beautiful ELOHIM/GOD is and how very much we owe HIM! AMEN/AMAN!

CO-FOUNDER, THE TRUTH ABOUT CANCER

Our mission here at The Truth About Cancer is to eradicate cancer by teaching the world all the best methods to prevent, treat, heal from, and beat the disease…

…And to expose all the mis-information out there causing millions unnecessary suffering (and their very lives).

I want to personally thank you for all your support so far; together we’ve already helped millions of people (and we’re about to help many millions more – but only with your help).

(Plus I can share with you that we’re starting to make those “Powers That Be” nervous… turns out they’re not really fans of free speech!)

However, we’re just getting started.

Beginning April 12, we’re going to re-release “The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest” 9-part documentary series for a limited time (for free) that you know and love…

And this time with your help our aim is for it to reach TENS OF MILLIONS who need it. So…urge everyone you know to click on the link above to watch the free “The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest” video series.

There are already one million people signed up to watch the free Encore presentation of “The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest”!

That means one million people who will have the opportunity to discover the life-saving “insider info” from the world’s top experts on how to really best prevent, treat, heal from, and BEAT cancer!

That is bright hope, and the start of a truly positive revolution.

And believe me, none of this would be possible without the help of MANY good people helping us spread the mission, including YOU.

Thank you so much again for helping to spread the mission,

Ty Bollinger

Some Thoughts For My Well-Beloved…

YOUR pain is visible in so much around us that your stupid and foolish children do not recognize or understand. YOU send your Wrath out to ease YOUR displeasure: storms that rip the roof off a church over a picture who they call jesus, destruction before and on halloween and mother’s day and gay fests and pagan festivities, bringing down false jesus’s and other idols and sun god symbols by lightning and storm, purging what is unclean and unrighteous, clouds full of locusts that strip the earth bare, famine and death for those who curse Israel!

YOU command the storm and whirlwind, rain and hail, thunder and lightning, fire and volcano, earthquake and tsunami, plague and pestilence, armies of locusts and famine. It is not mother nature and her names: the harlot, mistress of witchcraft, e-a-s-t-e-r, who wants to be queen of heaven, the false mary not YOUR Miryam mother of the MESSIAH who bore more children after HIM. It is not YOUR adversary, satan the dragon-lizard-snake, who mimics YOU to cause others to worship what should not be worshiped and mocks YOU through twisted words. All YOU created YOU control unless YOU give that power to another or remove YOUR protection. Please consider changing YOUR MIND over at least some of what is written in Revelation and other Scripture in the New Testament/Covenant my Well-Beloved!

But those who say they are YOURS and do not want the depths of YOU and YOUR WAY, those who do not want to know YOU or want the TRUTH or to understand, shake them all my Well-Beloved! Remove those who despise YOU and slaughter and feed on the poor and lost, stripping any gain for themselves. They laugh now at those they break but YOU have the last laugh. They do not realize a sword is coming upon them. No spots, stains, wrinkles of any kind allowed because they are not of YOU!

Most Gracious and Merciful FATHER in Heaven/ABBA in Ha’Shamayim, who gives a multitude of chances until YOU can not anymore, break their pride and strength and set YOUR FACE against YOUR enemies. Those who abhor and taint YOUR SON’S Sacrifice and YOUR Word, YOU abhor. Make them astonished at their ignorance of what they actually worship and are doing!

Wake them up if they can be. Shake and pursue them. May they accept their chastisement and be humbled to turn from evil and wickedness to righteousness. Show them their sin and teach them to confess and repent and turn to the only TRUE SAVIOR! May they accept the Precious Offering of HIS BODY and BLOOD and obey to receive HIS Sweet LIVING WATER, the HOLY SPIRIT! Show them YOU, FATHER and SON and HOLY SPIRIT, and what they would be missing out on for the rest of eternity/olam!

Sing YOUR song of love, shir ahava, over YOUR people and may we sing to YOU, with clean lips and pure hearts, for a sweet-smelling aroma for YOU to breath in and enjoy! May TRUE LOVE Offerings remind YOU of the long awaited desire of YOUR HEART and fortify YOU during the time of the end! YOUR SACRIFICE will be worth it YAHSHUA/JOSHUA/JESUS!

May our Generous and Glorious KING To Be, as HE finishes HIS preparations for HIS Bride and people, remember the Joy HIS ABBA/FATHER showed HIM! May all that HE and HIS Most Blessed and Gracious FATHER/ABBA in Heaven are preparing for those invited to the Wedding Feast of the KING’S Beloved SON, be blessed with the highest, richest, most worthy of blessings for the much anticipated Appointed Time! It may be that the Awesome BRIGHTNESS of the BOWS in the CLOUDS surrounding the Well-Beloved HOLY SPIRIT/GLORY of YHWH will be a Most Blessed and Glorious covering for the Amazing Event! Whatever HIS part in the festivities, it will be spectacular, too!

We love YOU our Dodi/Beloved!!! Thank YOU very much, todah rabah, for YOU!!! Many hugs, kisses, much TRUE worship-adoration-praise, blessing, respect, admiration, esteem, sacrifice, all that YOU would love may YOU have now and for the rest of olam!!! AMEN/AMAN!!!

Another Victory Over the Dark Act!!! Praise ELOHIM/GOD!!!

Praise our FATHER/ABBA in Heaven, YAHSHUA/JESUS, and the RUWACH HA’KODESH/HOLY SPIRIT for the success of the current Dark Act being struck down, for righteousness growing on this planet and overcoming unrighteousness – hidden or visible, and for any other attempts at resurrecting this or coming up with an alternative being struck down! Thank YOU, our Well-Beloved, for YOU!!! In YAHSHUA HA’MASHIACH YHWH’S/JESUS CHRIST the LORD’S BELOVED PRECIOUS NAME, AMAN/AMEN!  See below for the article about the details from the Organic Consumers Association and please keep vigilant and stay on guard!

Thanks to your tremendous and relentless pressure, you defeated the DARK Act today.

Let’s hope it rests in peace. But if it doesn’t, we’re prepared, with your help, to engage in some fierce zombie slaying.

Not enough votes—yet

After all his posturing and bribing and coercing, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) didn’t have enough votes to pass S. 2609, or what we’ve all come to know as the DARK Act, the bill that would Deny Americans the Right to Know about GMOs.

This is an exciting preliminary victory. It’s your victory.

Thank you to everyone who called your Senators and donated to the fight for our right to know! Now it’s time to call those Senators who voted with us, and say thank you.  Please click here to see how your Senators voted and then call the Capitol switchboard at 1-202-224-3121.

Here’s a quick summary of the vote.

There were very few Democrats who voted for the DARK Act: Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), and Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.).

There were also a few Republicans who broke ranks: Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) and Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.)

If these DARK Act opponents stay strong, they can defeat this bill, and Vermont’s GMO labeling law will take effect on July 1.

Once Vermont’s law takes effect, our movement will snowball, passing laws across the country and forcing food companies to give every American our right to know about GMOs. We’ll finally have mandatory food labels requiring the words “produced with genetic engineering” to be printed on the package.

What compromise lurks?

Unfortunately, an uncompromising win is far from guaranteed. There is still the danger that pro-GMO Democrats will decide to stab us in the back.

Politico reports that Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) is floating an alternative to the DARK Act. While the text of the proposal has not been made available, reporter Jenny Hopkinson says Stabenow’s sponsorship of the measure could provide” enough cover” for Democrats to vote to preempt state GMO labeling laws.

What exactly that “cover” looks like has yet to be revealed. Mandatory QR codes? Toll-free numbers? Whatever it is, you can bet it will preempt Vermont.

What’s next, and when?

After the vote on the DARK Act failed today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) flipped his vote from yes to no. He’s on the DARK side for sure, but this was just a procedural maneuver that allows the Senate to bring an amended version of the DARK Act back into the realm of the “un-dead.”

How soon could the DARK Act be resurrected? As early as this week, or perhaps in two weeks, after the Senate returns from its recess.

We need to stay strong and unite around this message to the Senate:

1.    GMOs should be labeled ‘Produced with Genetic Engineering’ using words on the package. Anything less is unacceptable.
2.    QR codes, symbols and acronyms would hide information about GMOs from people who aren’t in the know. Any “solution” requiring a smart phone discriminates against people who don’t have smart phones.
3.    The people of Vermont shouldn’t have to wait for the food companies to voluntarily label GMOs or for the federal government to write regulations. Vermont’s GMO labeling law must be allowed to take effect on July 1.
4.    There are real concerns about the safety of GMOs, especially as more than 99 percent of the GMO crops grown in the world today are engineered to increase our exposure to pesticides like Monsanto’s Roundup, which the World Health Organization says is a probable carcinogen.

Meanwhile, we at OCA thank you for all of your hard work, and your tremendous financial support—support that has brought us to today’s victory.

It’s critical that we remain vigilant. And it’s important to reach out and thank those Senators who voted for consumers, not Monsanto, today. Please click here to see how your Senators voted and then call the Capitol switchboard at 1-202-224-3121.

Many thanks,

Alexis and the OCA team

Asia Bibi’s Appeal Being Heard March 26, 2016

Asia Bibi’s appeals hearing is coming up soon, 3/26/16. Please pray for our BELOVED FATHER in Heaven’s Will and Desire to be accomplished and for what needs to happen for righteousness for people persecuted by unjust laws. Please read links below for additional new information about her and another petition for her release, an 8 year old Christian girl in Pakistan who had victory over her persecutors, the recent execution of a man who killed the Governor of Punjab for trying to help Asia and the killer’s being hailed a hero by many and the thoughts of a Muslim journalist who is for mercy not blood, and an older posting on this blog about her.

 

Someone brought up in another article that the USA should suspend its aide to Pakistan while they are allowing unjust laws that cause so much hurt. What is happening is like the witch hunts of old, where someone could lose their life or property over another person’s pettiness or greed. If Asia does lose her life, we have to remember that she will have great reward for not giving up her SAVIOR and instead dying for being persecuted for her faith.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia_Bibi_blasphemy_case 

On July 22, 2015 the Supreme Court of Pakistan suspended Bibi’s death sentence for the duration of the appeals process.[37][38] In November of 2015, Bibi’s lead attorney, Naeem Shakir, announced that, after two postponements in 2015, the Lahore High Court would hear an appeal in Bibi’s case on March 26, 2016.[39]

It also shows that Asia is in good health not poor and goes into detail about the reasoning behind the charges of Mumtaz Qadri, sentenced to death for killing Punjab’s governor who had been defending Asia. Below is a story and link to Mumtaz’s execution by a Muslim journalist who is against all the killing that has taken place and against killing for blasphemy.

Deception: “JESUS’S” FACE on a Prayer Rug

This has been going on for years apparently. People get in the mail a small prayer rug with a picture of “JESUS’S” FACE with a crown of thorns and are told to kneel on it or spread it over their knees to receive answer to their prayer for money, health, etc. The address on the package is St. Matthew’s Churches PO Box 21210  Tulsa, OK 74121. This is one of several ways this organization sends information out to people. Below is an article about them from Wikipedia and links to other sites posting information on them and a link to them as well.

I would remind any believer in JESUS/YESHUA that an image of HIM is not allowed in Scripture per the second of the 10 commandments Exodus/Sh’mot 20:4“You shall not make for yourself a carved 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. Any picture or statue or image purported to be of HIM is an idol or false god because HE does not look like that and it is not HIM so it is not worship of HIM. I repented of bowing down to and praying to statues and images such as these when my eyes were opened to the Truth because it breaks the first commandment Exodus/Sh’mot 20:3“You shall have no other gods before Me. This is how we know that the shroud of Turin is not true because it goes against the second commandment. I do not believe GOD/ELOHIM would allow it to exist if it were true because it goes against HIS direct command. I did a study on verses that show what HE looks like and can be found at this link:
