An umbrella can be symbolically seen as a mercy sign of covering over your soul.
The mindset of many biblical believers has developed a slightly twisted concept of the biblical substation process of mercy. In the biblical story of Abraham and his son Yisac or Isaac ,we know that the reason that Abraham and his 37 year old son Yisac were prepared to go for the sacrifice was because they trusted YGod in the substitution. Yisac was a mature man and not the child that pictures often portray. He could have refused the symbolic binding up but he understood the substitutionary escape from death whilst knowing that he was covered by mercy.
Again at the time of Moses, we know of the mass substitutionary escape. This escape covering of mercy was available to the co-operators with Moses in there with the escape plan of their redemption. Moses trusted in mercy and conveyed that and the act of obedience to his followers.
In Exodus 12 the substitution process of co-operation was to use a lamb for the following purposes:
1. Celebrate a ritual meal and eat it as a sign of taking also within the perfection and mercy of Almighty God.
2. The slain substitutionary lamb symbol had its blood put ritually on doorposts to be sign from without of that protection of Almighty’s wings of mercy like an umbrella to pass over to be the substitution whilst they still kept their lives intact and under that care sign.
Is it any wonder then that the biblical crucifixion story also had an initiation process for one of the pair of messiahs?
The romans did not allow burial of crucified bodies but permitted the body of the crucifixion initiation (so roman style??) to be removed because he was known to be Royally Substituted like a mercy umbrella also.
Exodus 11.5 “Every firstborn son in Egypt will die.”
God was fair in that this suffering was for all.
However God balances the sentence for those who will co-operate with his loving mercy and take up the action of putting up a mercy umbrella or blood covering. The decree of judgement was for all sins and all sinners just as it always is. God’s mercy provides a way of escape for those who choose to move with co-operation actions / movements as their covering.
So their free will choice to put on the co-operation of moving for mercy saw them use the lamb’s blood and flesh substitution as their movement.
It’s like putting up an umbrella. When rain falls it falls on all in the open. However those who choose to move will take an umbrella as their substitution covering so they do not get wet.
Quote from Debra:
“Every time I put up an umbrella I pray Yahweh God is my substitution covering of mercy and pray mercy to me and my friend’s who give umbrellas as our symbolic covering for us and our families.”
For those who seek to be movers in God’s way by moving to satisfy the divine laws and their demands which give us opportunity to co-operate, then Yahweh God provides us with a substitution lamb like covering from the judgement.
Just as the substitution death of the Passover lamb bought mercy covering and hid them away from the contaminations, so too we accept the unity as the Messiah did too. Whether you say 1 or 3 messiahs is not the key, (it is easier to understand the 3 and say 1 name) – the key is standing firm and trusting in that mercy cover up.
Ex 14:13 “Stand firm and you will see the deliverance of Yahweh.”
