“And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.” (Genesis 7:15-16, NKJV).

“Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past” (Isaiah 26:20, NKJV).

Hello there, people always make reference to the Spanish Pandemic of 1918 to interpret and/ or navigate through this lock-down season but I want us to go further back into the Bible so as to define future.  I asked for lock-down patterns/models in the Bible and I found two. You can search for more (not important). These are: HURRICANE NOAH & PASSOVER NIGHT.

These are the Questions that arise for me?

  1. What might be the main activities going inside Noah’s Ocean liner Jewish Homes?
  2. Can they be missing what’s going outside & wish they were “FREE” to move around?
  3. If they can speak to us and share their experiences today, what would that sound like in content?
  4. As privileged generation privileged to read these stories, what’s the end game of these lock-downs?

And these are my thoughts:

Noah’s priority was NOT to preach to the world, he’s done that for years as “preacher of righteousness”. Noah’s Focus (my thoughts) would have been clarifying what’s happening to his family and preparing them for the NEW WORLD. The Church has no message for the world at this time, but for the Church preparing for how to model life in the new world. The inaccurate Church is wallowing in guilt and doing their best to pay penance by shouting to an anxious world. KCP and her various expressions & protégé ministries have not so learnt of Christ.

Finally, we should ask ourselves this one question, who has locked us down? CORONAVIRUS, GOVERNMENT OR GOD? Let me attempt answering first by asking who locked Noah Down? And who locked Israel Down? If we desire Bible results, we must seek & follow Bible patterns.

The Lord continually bless and keep you all.
