A kadaicha man is a Central Australian witch doctor who makes shoes of emu feathers, human hair, string and human blood, so that he can cover the sound and marks of his footsteps, when he creeps up to kill an enemy.
Jesus blood covers our sins, and the Holy Spirit applies it to our lives.
There are a number or sneakers mentioned in the Bible.
Abraham twice pretended that his wife Sarah was his sister, though she was his half sister. When enemy kings put her in their harem, God intervened and made the men release her.
Jacob sneaked his birthright from his brother when in a weak moment Esau was hungry and agreed to give it to his brother in place of a meal. Later to get the first born's blessing from his father he pretended to be Esau, with the connivance of his mother Rebecca. He fooled his father, but God had planned this all along, so even if he had to run away from his brother's wrath, God worked it for his eventual good.
Doeg the Edomite, a descendant of Esau, watched David getting bread from the temple to feed his followers, and sneaked to Saul what he had seen, This got David into trouble and he had to run from Saul's wrath.
Joshosheba sneaked baby Joash into the temple and hid him from the wicked Queen Athaliah, who killed all the king's other sons. He became a good king at an early age.
Judas sneaked to the temple authorities with a promise to give his master into their hands for a sum of thirty pieces of silver, the price of a slave. He bitterly repented later and killed himself. But God knew that this would happen and predicted it many years before.
A childhood game consisted of a group creeping quietly up to a child in front with their back turned. When this person looked around, those spotted moving had to return to the base line. It made participants move stealthily with guarded movements, able to stop on any pose. This could come in handy stalking animals who flee at sign of movement.
In spite of all the sneakers in the Bible, God was still in control of events and works them into his plan.
