Living Through the Passover Pandemic
The Israelites of old wiped lamb's blood on their entryways, barred their doors, and stayed within the boundaries of their homes in silent submission to Christ's command until the fear of death was gone. Those who did not obey the Lord's orders witnessed the loss of their first-born sons - a pandemic in Egypt.
In Jesus' day, it appeared that even the firstborn Son of God could be killed by the pandemic hatred of Christ. But through Jesus' trial, murder, and resurrection, he demonstrated the way in which we would joyfully leave the old symbol of hiding in houses to venture out into secure spiritual freedom and close communion with one another.
Our true home is God consciousness
because the open door through which all ideas pass is Christ,
Truth. Is there a thing, a thought, or an influence outside of
infinite Mind? No! Every object or idea of creation is a product
of Mind, and it is conscious, alive, and unalterable. We cannot
die out of Life nor can we become temporarily unaware of the
Principle that created us because our consciousness is compassed
about by divine Love, sentinelled by Christ. It is time to prove
for ourselves and for all mankind that God's children are clothed
with the impervious armor of God, and, therefore, are immune
to pandemic influences. Jesus assured us, "Of them which
thou gavest me have I lost none" (John 18:9).
With divine Love beneath, above, and beyond,
all temptation dissolves - harmless and unknown.
