A little something I wanted to share
The official lockdown started March 23 and will likely end on May 1. That is EXACTLY 40 days. 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 Mt. Sinai to receive the ten commandments

Exodus lasted 40 years

Jesus fasted 40 days

40 days fo a woman to rest after giving birth.

The optimum number of weeks for human gestation is 40

A group of theologians thinks the number 40 represents "change". It is the time of preparing a person or people for a fundamental change. Something will happen after the 40 days. Just believe and pray. Remember whenever the number 40 appears in the Bible, there is a "change".

Please know that during this time of 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 and truly transforming.

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

Also, 2020 is the year of Census, and Jesus Christ, the savior of the world was born during the Census.

Lastly, 2020 is a 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.
