Our Sunday School teacher last Sunday went over all the words for "DIP" in the Bible and how its the same word for baptize. Wow. That gave me a lot to chew on. He had challenged us a few weeks earlier to find all the words in the Bible having to do with baptize. And there are many different kinds of baptism. For example---Noah was saved through the water, but he never got wet. Those who got wet all died in judgement. And the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not a baptism we can do with water. It is a spiritual baptism.
But, when you do a word search through the Bible for the word, "DIP" most are about dipping in blood. Interesting. And what struck me this morning as I looked over the words, was how declared clean was only the first part. The other part involved a sacrifice. Some bird or lamb or animal had to die, and their blood was dotted on the one or the thing being declared clean. Interesting. Very Interesting.
