COVID and the Bible.

  God has a plan for everything.  God does not will sickness or disease or suffering or  sin for anyone.  But He does will that good may come from even the most difficult of situations.   The sadness and suffering and death of His Son Jesus was followed by the glory and joy of Jesus rising from the dead and conquering sin and death forever.  Do not miss the opportunities for good that may come from our current situation of inconveniences and disappointments, and even job loss, sickness and death.  Think about it.  Pray about it.  Act on it.  ________________________________________


Think about this:

Lockdown began from March 25th at midnight… And now extended to 3rd May

It’s exactly 40 days from 25th March to 3rd May.

Something is strangely biblical.

QUARANTINE
 The Latin root of the word “quarantine” is “forty”.


So what does the Bible say about 40?

The flood lasted 40 days.

40 years Moses fled Egypt.

40 days Moses stayed on Mount Sinai to receive the Commandments.

Exodus lasted 40 years.

Jesus fasted for 40 days.

Lent is 40 days.

40 days for a woman to rest after giving birth.

A group of theologians thinks the number 40 represents “change”.  It is the time of preparing a person, or people, to make a fundamental change.

Something will happen after these 40 days. Just believe and pray.  Remember, whenever the number 40 appears in the Bible, there is a “change”.

Please know that during this “quarantine” rivers are cleaning up, vegetation is growing, the air is becoming cleaner because of less pollution, there is less theft and murder, healing is happening, and most importantly, people are turning to Christ.  The Earth is at rest for the first time in many years and hearts are truly transforming.

So, during this time, enjoy it with your loved ones and return to the family altar together. Family prayer is a great blessing. Through prayer you will see the changes God can work in you and in your home. Christ promises us that everything works together for the good for those who love God: Romans 8:28!

Remember we are in the year 2020, and 20 + 20 = 40.

Also, 2020 is the year of the United States Census. Jesus Christ, the savior of the world, was born during a census.

Lastly, 2020 is perfect vision. May our sight focus on the Lord and living according to His perfect vision for us knowing He holds us in the palm of His hand.

May these days of “quarantine” bring spiritual liberation to our souls, our nation, and our world.

*The best is yet to come.*
*Trust in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!*
