Something strangely biblical

21 Jun 2020 by Marion Jones in: Looking Out

Lockdown began from March 25th at midnight and extended till May 3rd. It’s exactly 40 days from 25th March to 3rd May. 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 think 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.

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