This was sent to Pastor William and he found it so interesting, he is sharing it here:
The Latin word for “quarantine” is “forty.” The Venetians kept ships from plague-stricken countries out of their ports for 40 days to make sure no diseases were brought to land.
So, what does the Bible say about 40?
The flood last 40 days.
40 years Moses fled Egypt.
40 days Moses stayed on Mount Sinai to receive the Commandments.
Exodus lasted 40 years.
Lent is 40 days.
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.
People are turning to Christ. The earth is at rest for the first time in many years & hearts are truly transforming.
So at this time, enjoy those around you and make sure that your home is a sanctuary. Prayer is a great blessing and through prayer, we can see changes God works through you, your home, and your workplace.
We are promised that everything works together for the good for those who love God and have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28.
This is the year 2020. 20+20=40.
Also, 2020 is the year of the United States Census. Jesus was born during a census.
Lastly, 20/20 is perfect vision. May our sight focus on the Lord and living according to His perfect vision for us knowingHe holds us in the palm of His hand.
May these days of “quarantine” bring spiritual liberation to our souls, our nation, and our world.
Trust in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
