Folks, Rey (wife), I and the Family were out after eight months of hard lockdown last week. There are a few things I’d like to clear.

Leaders are, (we too) responsible for help guiding people in the right direction, by word and deed. Though, we’ve been out (leopard park, botanical gardens —we had zero contact with crowds) does not suggest we not in strict locked down still. We have taken this virus very seriously, and the resurgence apparently proves the majority of people in our country are not.

The Wisdom of God (Light) is the stability of our times, and “correct” knowledge is the strength of our salvation. (Isaiah 33:6).

I’m convinced and find peace in God’s sovereignty (God is in control and His Will prevails in the end) during this pandemic. I’m also convinced and find Hope in how God can use (not cause) a pandemic to shift political and economic landscapes in favour of His will and people.

Just imagine if the nation of Israel spoke amongst themselves, “The Ten Plaques is not real, it’s only a conspiracy.” Folks, would the nation survived that came by way of God’s protection, by way of God’s wisdom? Don’t be caught walking outside of this Light of God’s Wisdom during this pandemic.  Don’t be even be fooled in saying “there is no virus?” That’s irresponsible!

As pressed as lockdown has been for us all as a nation but quarantine is not from the antichrist and the covid virus, as with the “Spanish flu” is not a conspiracy!  When God taught His children how to practice self-isolation Lev 13:45, because of virus outbreaks, He was teaching them how to protect and preserve their lives.

When God, taught His children how to practice self-isolation Lev 13:45, because of virus outbreaks,  He was teaching them how to protect and preserve their lives.

It is God who speaks through the mouths of Presidents (even unbelieving ones) and affords them the wisdom during times of crisis to preserve life. It, therefore, would be breaking God’s Word, if any person believes they are not responsible to help eliminate this virus, by not observing social distancing restrictions, etc.

Every year Jews around the world observe Passover. A commemoration of a stay-at-home order from God. The Lord confined the Hebrews to their homes as death passed them over (Ex. 12:23). The Covid-19 virus, and so with the next… is designed to bring death, but only God turns death, to bring newness of life or new beginnings.  That, of course, depends if you followed Gods instructions to remain alive to appreciate it.

Even in the New Testament, lepers practised a form of “social distancing” (Luke 17:12, KJV). There is a time to celebrate (Jive!), but there is also a time, the Bible teaches to lockdown, (No holy kisses, hugs or high fives).

We are to work alongside the supernatural (Exodus 3:7) using God’s practical wisdom to mitigate an infectious disease.

In fact, no child of God should have contracted this virus or have lost a loved one through this virus,  because of the wisdom of God that is given to protect us (Psalm 105:37, Exodus 14:31).

The cure to the Covid 19 virus is found in one-verb LOVE. The love of God, spelt; CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS! This means giving up certain freedoms temporarily to ensure others can thrive.

  The cure, to the Covid 19 virus, is found in one-verb LOVE.

In this pandemic, rather than jumping to Revelation 13 conclusions, consider our Leviticus 13 obligations prompted by a 1 Corinthians 13 motivation.

Lets beat this virus together!

Love,
Shan, Rey and Z3 Thumbran
