Precautions against Coronavirus

Introduction

For those living under a rock, the Coronaavirus (or COVID-19) plague has been occuring worldwide. I will not bother to list all the articles - too many, but here is one.

World must prepare for potential COVID-19 pandemic says WHO

"Timeline of a hidden epidemic" by Karen Hardin and IFA staffs suspect there is a coverup of what is truely happening this plague. The true number of death has been covered up. To see this article, go to https://www.ifapray.org/promo/cor/ and request a free copy.

UPDATE 3/10/20: This article has been replaced by a more current "Coronavirus" article. Download that article.

John Little suspects Coronavirus is not as dangerous as reported.

The Wuhan Coronavirus – Some Real Truth
https://omegashock.com/2020/02/12/the-wuhan-coronavirus-some-real-truth/

I am not convinced that the culprit is Coronavirus, but I do think there is a plague occurring in China. The death rate is far greater than reported.

How do We Respond?

Ps 91:10-12 OOYLT
Evil happeneth not unto thee, And a plague cometh not near thy tent, For His messengers He chargeth for thee, To keep thee in all thy ways, On the hands they bear thee up, Lest thou smite against a stone thy foot.


God's promise is conditional. Believers obtain God's Protection by obeying God's Commands in the bible.

Walk by Faith, not in Fear

Ps 91:1-3 OOYLT
He who is dwelling In the secret place of the Most High, In the shade of the Mighty lodgeth habitually, He is saying of Jehovah, `My refuge, and my bulwark, my God, I trust in Him,'For He delivereth thee from the snare of a fowler, From a calamitous pestilence.


Believers need to walk closely with Jesus. They are to walk by faith, not in fear.

Wash Hands

Lk 11:37-38 OOYLT
And in his speaking, a certain Pharisee was asking him that he might dine with him, and having gone in, he reclined (at meat), and the Pharisee having seen, did wonder that he did not first baptize himself before the dinner.


The Jewish people were washing their hands before meals. There is wisdom in doing so. There is a reason why there are signs in the restaurants's restroom that staffs must wash hands before leaving the restroom. There is a reason why medical staffs wash their hands often. Hands are the biggest carrier of germs.
It is wise to wash up before retiring in the evening. It is wise to avoid sick people. It is wise to make sure the house is clean. And so on. While current believers are not under the OT law, the OT laws are prototypes for God's People today. God wants His People to be "clean" freaks.

Hygiene from many 2nd and 3rd world countries is poor. People are not educated about the wisdom of washing hands. Not washing hands allows the germ to propagate unhindered.

Children are the worst offenders. Virus, flu, cold, and other diseases spread like wildfire in schools. Parents, train your children to wash hands.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Handwashing: Clean Hands Save Lives
https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html
quotes
 Handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself 
 and your family from getting sick. Learn when and how 
 you should wash your hands to stay healthy.
Their website also quotes
 Wash Your Hands Often to Stay Healthy

 You can help yourself and your loved ones stay healthy by 
 washing your hands often, especially during these key times 
 when you are likely to get and spread germs:

   - Before, during, and after preparing food
   - Before eating food
   - Before and after caring for someone at home who is sick with vomiting or diarrhea
   - Before and after treating a cut or wound
   - After using the toilet
   - After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet
   - After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
   - After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste
   - After handling pet food or pet treats
   - After touching garbage
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Posters
https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/posters.html

If you work in a building - especially those whom have influence - push for poster signs in the bathrooms. Personally, I like the sign used at the top of this webpage because it explains why washing hands is important. I also like the sign teaching how to wash hands - this would be good for children. I suggest using multiple signs at strategic places. Also if little children are frequently around, put stools in the bathrooms. Pray and ask Jesus on the setup.

If your ministry/work serves food and you are concerned, consider roping the food line to past a sink and force the eaters to wash their hands before touching serving spoons. You will need extra soap, extra paper towel, a garbage can, a stool (if there are children), and ushers.

People should be washing their hands often even if there no plague. God's Wisdom for the OT Jews to be clean applies for today. This command is INDEPENDENT of whatever plague (virus including Coronavirus, flu, cold, etc) is happening.

Avoid Eating Blood

There are numerous verses where the bible instruct us not to drink the blood. This command is given in the OT and NT. Below, is a few of them.

Gen 9:3-4 OOYLT
Every creeping thing that is alive, to you it is for food; as the green herb I have given to you the whole; only flesh in its life -- its blood -- ye do not eat.

Lev 3:17 OOYLT
`A statute age-during to your generations in all your dwellings: any fat or any blood ye do not eat.'

Deut 12:15-16 OOYLT
'Only, with all the desire of thy soul thou dost sacrifice, and hast eaten flesh according to the blessing of Jehovah thy God which He hath given to thee, in all thy gates; the unclean and the clean do eat it, as of the roe, and as of the hart. 'Only, the blood ye do not eat -- on the earth thou dost pour it as water;

Acts 15:19-20 OOYLT
wherefore I judge: not to trouble those who from the nations do turn back to God, but to write to them to abstain from the pollutions of the idols, and the whoredom, and the strangled thing; and the blood;

Acts 21:25 OOYLT
'And concerning those of the nations who have believed, we have written, having given judgment, that they observe no such thing, except to keep themselves both from idol-sacrifices, and blood, and a strangled thing, and whoredom.'

Eating raw animals allow their diseases to transfer to you. Protect your health by cooking animals well done. Eating blood is forbidden not just for OT Jews, but for everyone - a command given to Noah after the flood. This principle is confirmed in Acts 15:19-20 and Acts 21:25. Even if there is no plague, do NOT leave God's Protection by eating blood.

Kosher law

Christians are not required to follow the kosher given by Moses. But there are health benefits to following the kosher law. Roughly 85% of customers at Jewish grocery stores buy kosher for health, not religious, reason.

Eating Kosher Foods For Better Health
https://www.everydayhealth.com/diet-nutrition/eating-kosher-foods-better-health/

It is true that Jesus pronounced all food clean (e.g., Mk 7:19). However there is wisdom in eating kosher. Not only you eat clean animals, but food safety is higher.

Personally, I am not too worried about eating unclean animals. I come from a Chinese family and Chinese people eat much pork (pigs are unclean animals). The average dying age of the generation ahead of me is in the mid-80s. One thing they do is they cook their meats well-done. My position is to eat a higher percentage of meat from clean animals.

Not eating blood is far more important. Eating raw animals is eating their lives. Avoid sushi, not fully cooked hamburgers, and other delicacies involving live animals. People should be doing this regardless of whether there is plague or not. God protects those whom obey His Commands.

Summary

There is no need to panic. God promises to protect you, but it is conditional. Believers need to If you are living in fear, then ask yourself if you have a personal relationship with Jesus. If you never received Jesus, see

Steps to Peace With God
https://decisionmagazine.com/steps-to-peace-with-god/

If you living in fear and you received Jesus, examine yourself and repent of sins. A list of sins are in Mt 6:14-15, Mt 7:21, I Cor 6:9-10, Gal 5:19-21, and many more bible verses. Sins separate believers from God and hinder believers from having peace with God.

Put things in perspective. As of 3/6/20, there has been 11 deaths due to Coronavirus in US.

quotes
 About 90 people die each day in the US from crashes
That is more than 32,000 deaths per year.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Disease Burden of Influenza
https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/index.html
quotes
 CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, 
 between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths 
 annually since 2010.
Be not afraid of Coronavirus and other diseases. But walk with a peace from God, stay clean, and eat correctly.

Let the song, My peace by Keith Routledge, be in your heart.
 My peace I give unto You,
 It's a peace that the world cannot give;
 It's a peace that the world cannot understand,
 peace to know, peace to live,
 My peace I give unto you.
