Praying Death will Pass Over

Coronavirus / COVID-19
It's Holy Week between Palm Sunday and Easter, with Passover in the middle, and many are praying the COVID-19 / Coronavirus will pass over their home and not bring death into their houses. (Tweet It!)

If you didn’t know, the date for Easter is set by the Jewish holiday, Passover. The Christian Easter is on the Sunday closest to Passover. Easter moves around on our western calendar. But Passover always begins on the 14th of Nissan on the Jewish calendar. *

This year Passover starts right in the middle of Holy Week, beginning at sundown today, Wednesday April 8, 2020.

Passover began with the miraculous Exodus of the Israelite (Jewish) people from slavery in Egypt. It was the last, or tenth, of the ten plagues God brought on Egypt and the false gods of Egypt to set His people free from slavery and prove He is the one and only true God.
“On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord” (Exodus 12:12, NIV).
God said He was going to send the Angel of Death throughout Egypt and it would strike dead the firstborn male of every household and all the cattle. However, anyone could avoid this by believing God and following His instructions: slaughter a lamb, paint its blood on the doorposts of their house, and stay inside the house. That must have sounded as crazy to those people then as it does to us today. But God was painting a picture of the coming Lamb of God Whose blood saves anyone who believes God and follows His instructions: ask for forgiveness of your sins and believe Jesus' death atones and saves you from your sins. After that, get to know God and live His way.

That Passover, God promised when the Angel of Death saw the blood on the doorposts, he would pass over that home and no death would come to that house, just as the blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus, saves all who believe in Him. (Tweet It!)

This was the first Passover.

This Passover, most of us have been told to stay in our houses. (Tweet It!) For Palm Sunday, Easter, and everything in between, for the first time in history churches stand empty. (Tweet It!)

Many are praying Death from this COVID-19 Coronavirus will pass over our homes, especially this coming week when the virus is expected to peak resulting in the highest number of deaths. (Tweet It!)

Interestingly, United States President Trump and other leaders predict this will be the worst week for deaths in the US.

This past Sunday on FOX News’ program Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said this in the first 1:30 of this video:
"The president, the governor, and now ever the mayor—They’ve all done a good job of getting the people ready for what is going to be, they say, a terrible, now, about a week and a half.  
"It coincides, interestingly, with the Passover, with Good Friday and Easter, all very, very solemn religious holidays. Passover is about the angel of death passing over you. Praying for it. I think people are sitting at home praying for that."

The first Passover, God instructed Moses, and then Moses instructed the people to slaughter a lamb, and then:
“Take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and touch the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. None of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians, and when he sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to strike you. 24 You shall observe this rite as a statute for you and for your sons forever” (Exodus 12:22-24, ESV). 
That first Passover pictured, or foreshadowed, the coming Messiah, the ultimate Passover Lamb!

The New Testament tells us this:
Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed (1 Corinthians 5:7).

It is never wrong to pray and ask the one, true God to help us. You can pray

  • that He will stop the COVID-19 / Coronavirus, 
  • to protect all our health workers and first responders,
  • and will heal those who are sick.

The first #Passover God promised the Angel of Death would pass over homes with lamb's blood on the doorposts, just as death passes over all marked by the blood of the Lamb of God, #Jesus.

This #Passover, like the first, most of us have been told to stay in our houses. #COVID-19 #Coronavirus #BibleProphecy

This #Passover week the #COVID-19 #Coronavirus is expected to peak, resulting in the highest number of deaths. It’s never wrong to #pray. 

#RudyGiuliani: It coincides, interestingly, with the Passover. Solemn religious holidays about the angel of death passing over you. People are sitting at home praying for that. #COVID-19 #Coronavirus 



    Can you look into this?
    I have ways had an interest for this kind of things. Im a Christian myself and can't help but feel that there are bad things coming and a lot of prophecies that will be completed.

    1. Hello Unknown-but-God-Knows-Your-Name.

      Interesting article. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I’ve heard many talk about such things. I’m not an economist or an expert in this area, which sometimes is an advantage toward keeping it simple. Here are my thoughts:

      Many people understand a time is coming when there will be one government over the world, and therefore one currency. Some people know this comes from the Bible, but probably lot of people don’t know that or don’t know where to find it. It is in Revelation 13:16-18: “Also it [that is, the Second Beast who is a religious-looking deceiver speaking for Satan] causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.”

      The key words for our discussion here are “no one can buy or sell unless…” “No one” means world-wide. This indicates, at least to me, a one-world currency. This also shows why Christians know a one-world currency to be such a bad thing.

      Years ago I wondered if the Euro might work into this Bible prophecy. Interesting that Britain is now exiting the European Union.

      What I know for sure is I can’t, probably no one can, foresee the details of how End Times prophecies will come about, but they will come about – probably in a surprising way at an unexpected time. Which is why we need to be ready now, and expecting Jesus to come at any time.

      So what are we, as Christians, to do if the US dollar tanks and we’re left with nothing? Answer: Live by faith. Trust Jesus, who is God, to take care of us. Remember how God miraculously fed the Israelite people – perhaps numbering a few million -- every day for 40 years? Remember how God made a widow’s small amount of food feed her, her son, and Elijah for years in a famine? Remember how Jesus fed thousands with a few loaves and fishes? This is why it’s important to know what God can do through studying the true stories in the Bible.

      I hope my answer helps and encourages you, and all my brothers and sisters in Christ.
