Quarantine = 40

A friend sent this to me in an e-mail today.
I found it to be quite thought-provoking.
Decided to share it with you. (Author unknown)


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 Mount Sinai to receive the Commandments.
Exodus lasted 40 years.
Jesus fasted for 40 days.
Lent is 40 days.
40 days for a woman to rest after giving birth. 40 weeks to delivery

40 Represents Change

A group of theologians thinks the number 40 represents “change”.  It is the time of preparing a person, or people, to make a fundamental change. 
Something will happen after these 40 days. Just believe and pray.

Please know that during this “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 are truly transforming.

Ask Guidance for Change

So, during this time, enjoy it with your loved ones and return to the family altar together. Family prayer is a great blessing.  Through prayer you will see the changes God can work in you and in your home.  Christ promises us that everything works together for the good for those who love God and are called according to His purposes: Romans 8:28!

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

Also, 2020 is the year of the United States Census.  Jesus Christ, the savior of the world, was born during a census.

Lastly, 2020 is 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.
The best is yet to come. 
Trust in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!✨

    April 26 will be 40 days for me. Time has flown by!

  2. What a fascinating treatise on the numbers

    • I thought so, too. Seven more days… It’ll be my 40th sequestered day … S’pose that’s when our governor will begin the gradual opening?

  4. Thank you for this encouragement. I’ve also read that the number 40, represents testing, which seems to fit. I love the call to the family altar, may it be so in Jesus Name.
