RALEIGH, Nc., Sept. 13 /Christian Newswire/ — A new discovery reveals a
"mystery" never before seen. Investigative researcher Philip E. Dayvault,
of Raleigh, NC, found in 2003 that the famed Sistine Chapel Ceiling fresco,
painted by Michelangelo in 1512 and located at the Vatican in Rome, Italy,
is also painted in allegory. Although the central panels of the Ceiling, or
"historicals", are illustrated for literal interpretation, they also contain
unique symbolic expression. Once decoded, Dayvault discovered that this
expression graphically depicts the Shroud of Turin, in full and complete
order. The Shroud of Turin is the traditional burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
It bears the Image of a crucified Man, consistent with the Scriptural
depiction of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

In addition, Dayvault, through a "divinely-inspired" discovery in 2003,
found that the Last Judgment fresco, also painted by Michelangelo in 1541,
and a portion of the Chapel Ceiling remarkably portray the encoded Face of
the Man of the Shroud, including its distinctive features. What makes this
discovery so unique is that the single, encoded Facial Image is comprised of
portions of both paintings which were painted over a 33-year period, with a
24-year interim, under the tenures of three different Popes, and
all-the-while under protest by Michelangelo. This encoded Image has never
before been seen or mentioned, despite the fact that an estimated 500
million visitors have viewed the Sistine Chapel since 1512. Dayvault
discovered the encoded Image in January 2003 and it took years of working
alone to substantiate the find and make other observations. These findings
actually corroborate the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin and depict an
epiphanic Image of the Man of the Shroud, venerated by millions for
centuries as Jesus Christ.

Reason, circumstances, and historical data preclude the encoded Images to be
man-made. Furthermore, Dayvault believes, the Images are a result of divine
inspiration, just like Holy Scripture. Michelangelo certainly painted the
Chapel Ceiling and Last Judgment frescoes, but the Hand of God actually
predetermined the hidden Images of the Man of the Shroud, Dayvault claims.
These encoded Images remained hidden until 2003, when revealed to Dayvault.
The Ceiling was painted during 1508-1512. The Last Judgment was painted
during 1536-1541. Dayvault believes the encoded Image is a depiction of the
actual Face of Jesus Christ in His Heavenly Glory, known as the "Beatific
Vision." Amazingly, even the Banner of Israel is also divinely-encoded. His
research has been peer-reviewed, with full concurrence of findings. Other
discoveries by Dayvault, and heretofore unknown, relate directly to
Scriptural prophecy, the Holy Trinity, the Bridegroom and His Church, and
more…much more!

The office of a senior Vatican official was recently notified of this
upcoming press release and was offered a preliminary viewing of a CD which
graphically illustrates these findings; both as a courtesy notification of
increased visitation, and forewarning of increased risks. The subject of
the press release was not divulged for security reasons. No response was
ever received from his office. Hopefully, a reply will be forthcoming.

It is important to note that the Shroud of Turin is a priceless artifact for
the entire world, and not just a Catholic relic. It has been under the
authority and in the custody of the Roman Catholic Church only since 1983!

Dayvault believes the Lord’s message of divine forgiveness and blessed
assurance for the Christian resurrection is vividly portrayed in the
Shroud’s Image. Jesus Christ seeks and offers a personal relationship with
each of us–it is our choice to accept it, or not. However, it is a vital
decision…and the consequences are eternal.

Dayvault, an evangelical Christian and a former FBI Special Agent, has
followed and researched the Shroud since 1973. He is seeking to produce a
DVD documentary which will graphically illustrate these highly visual
images. Dayvault is currently writing a book to further describe this new
and unique research. And, there is more…much more!
