The Covid-19 Lockdown

The Covid-19 Lockdown

The 21-day lock down commences on Thursday 26th March. Thursday 26th March is rosh chodesh Nissan (the 1st day of a new month in the Hebrew calendar), the month when Pesach/Passover is observed. The exodus from Egypt was such a pivotal event in redemptive history, that HaShem said “This month will mark the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year for you” (Exodus 12:2).

And so, Passover commences on the 14th Nissan (8thApril) and is observed for seven days i.e. on 16th April – 22nd Nissan. The 21-day shutdown provisionally ends on 16th April 2020 i.e. the last day of Passover.

Let’s put this all together.

Isaiah 26:20

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.

The clincher:

There are many names of God – Elohim, Adonai, Lord, HaShem etc. The unpronounceable, ineffable Name of God is pronounced Adonai. Hebrew and Greek are the only languages that have numerical values associated with each letter. So ….


hey vav hey yod

5 6 5 10 = 26

I suspect that the Almighty God of Israel is wanting to get our attention! These are not my original thoughts; just putting it together.
