Amnion a word used to describe the Membrane (Veil) that covers the baby in the womb. Amniotic fluid is the water that protects the baby in the womb.
The word Amnion in Latin extends to also make the related word Lamb, as in the wool pulled over the eyes to keep the sheep from seeing the sheerer at
work. Amnesia is the condition of not remembering.
A shepherd leads the flock from danger and goes after lost sheep. A sheerer will not harm the sheep, but the cutting can often leave marks. The
shepherd pulls the wool over the eyes of the sheep for its own protection. The wool is the symbol of what is cut away (the protective cover). Sin is
also cut by this symbolism in the process.
A Caul is a thin, translucent tissue. It is a fragment of the amniotic membrane. When the baby emerges from the womb, the Amnion sometimes covers
the face. The parents have the honor of removing the covering and it is considered an honor for a sailor to have a child born with this covering.
Why? The baby was protected in the water by the Caul and this is significant for the sailor by symbolism for obvious reasons. The Caul comes in many
types and sometimes covers the entire body.
Jesus said, "You must be born again."
Paul said, " I believe everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets, 15 and I have the same hope in God as these
men themselves have, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked." Acts 24
Isaiah said, "19 But your dead will live, Lord;
their bodies will rise—
let those who dwell in the dust
wake up and shout for joy—
your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the earth will give birth to her dead.
20 Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until his wrath has passed by.
21 See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling
to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
The earth will disclose the blood shed on it;
the earth will conceal its slain no longer. ISAIAH 26
Job Said, "25 I know that my redeemer lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet in my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes —I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!" JOB 19
Here is what can be known about the clouds that cover our memory of our previous estate:
7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of
him. Even so, Amen.
Cloud is the word nephelē. It also derives the word Nephilim, a cloud of evil spirits covering the people. This usage was shown in the book of
Enoch 1 to describe the Evil Beings that corrupted Mankind. The cloud was the same as the one in Jude 1 and Enoch to describe Jesus coming in the
clouds with an army of angels to rescue mankind.
When it says Jesus is coming in the clouds, why do the people mourn? For the first century generation that pierced Christ, the answer is obvious.
For the rest of us, we realize that our sin was paid by the one that comes to remove the covering from us. The word Cloud denotes a complete covering
that shrouds the land from the light. Clouds also defuse light to keep the earth protected. The Earth is our womb. There are many analogies in this
symbolism when we see the connection. Faith is not fact because we cannot see beyond the veil.
When it says that Jesus is coming in the cloud, do you suspect that we will realize something about ourselves when the veil is removed and faith
becomes FACT? I would suspect all the people are mourning for themselves by the fact that the Savior and Lord has appeared and removed all questions.
Emotion does not begin to describe this event, knowing that our Savior died for our transgressions. We are all here to see this happen. All 7
billion souls are here now. The waters of baptism (Immersion into the water of reality) has prepared the way.
Do you remember what Elijah did in 1 Kings 17? He shut off the water, then went to a Widow woman with a son. The son died because of the drought and
Elijah takes the boy up the "Stairs" to his chamber of rest. He prays the soul back to the boy by asking the Lord to return it. He then takes the
boy back down the stairs to the mother. What is this a picture of? BAPTISM! It's our immersion into the water and behind the veil of what came
before. You must be born again.
Elijah is the one crying in the wilderness, "Prepare ye the way of the Lord." What happens next? We see John the Baptist (Elijah returned to the
water) and he is baptizing. He baptizes anyone who will come except the Pharisee and Sadducees. He says, "you brood of vipers. Who warned you to
flee the coming wrath. Repent and bear fruit. I baptize you in water. One comes after me that baptizes you with fire." In other words, they are
refused the water to put out the fire until they repent. They will remind blind.
What happens when Elijah turns on the water on full? 7 billions souls return to see Christ return in the midst of our clouds. He parts them and we
all remember who we are. What a day that will be. Full of both joy and amazement of emotion.
God is more than amazing!! Who do you suppose you are / were / will be?
Go back and read the quote from Isaiah above. Where are the sheep when shorn? The sheering shed, away from all the others. What else is going to
happen when Christ appears? The Evil cloud is removed. The enemy is made the footstool. Rest takes place in the millennium reign of Christ.
Read up on the process of sheering the sheep. It's more than interesting. LINK
"Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
Is God this amazing? Yes. Even more Amazing. Not only this, it's a free gift.
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one
can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Jesus paid it all.
On top of it all, a pile of wool looks like a cloud.
