Godly Wisdom About Quarantining For Infectious Diseases and Close Contacts

Sharon Stay Faith Infectious Diseases Law Quarantining Reproductive Health Worship

The Living God in His law, gives Godly wisdom on quarantining the sick for infectious bodily discharges that are spread by saliva/spit, and initially recommends quarantining until the discharge stops and then the male who was infectious must count off 7 days and from the end of those 7 days, the person is no longer infectious and is clean. (Leviticus 15:13 ). They must then go to the priest and the priest will make an offering to the Living God. This is still best practice today in the year 2022 or in the Jewish calendar, 5782 years since the creation of the heavens and the earth as we know it. 

The infectious person is to wash themselves and their clothes with fresh water.  The sick were to lightly cover their face, without restricting their ability to breathe, when mixing with people, to prevent the spread of the infectious disease and inform people that they were sick and infectious.

Any person who comes into contact with the infectious, while they are infectious is to wash themselves and their clothes with water and is infectious until evening of that same day.

Any objects that the infectious person touches that are wooden, are to be rinsed with water and any clay objects are to be broken. Their bed and anything they sit on is unclean and must be washed with water.

There is more Godly wisdom there, that is worth reading, with specific instructions for infectious skin diseases, unusual hair loss and for women with unhealthy discharges of blood. 

It is well worth reading and obeying for whilst we as mere humans may not always comprehend why the Living God has declared something, everything He does is good and for our good and it is always best to inquire of Him and obey Him when we want healing. For it is written that He is our Healer. 

“If you really listen to the voice of your God YHWH, and do that which is right in His eyes, and have listened to His commands, and kept all His statutes, none of the sickness which I laid on the Egyptians do I lay on you, for I, YHWH, am healing you.” Exodus 15:26.

For those who question whether the Living God expects us as human beings to obey this after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, I would point out that Jesus Christ at no point said that the Living God's law would cease to need to be obeyed and it is not right to abolish all that is written about what He said before His resurrection, as though it counted for nothing!

"Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfil. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others [to do] the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches [them], he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:17-19

I would also mention that in the book of Acts, Paul joins with other men in purification rites in Acts 15:24, in Jerusalem and it is again reiterated there that the Living God's righteous law must be obeyed.

If you are unsure at any point in time as to how to obey the Living God's law...Inquire of Him! Always inquire of Him, prayerfully and privately and then, in faithful obedience, do whatever He says. To obey is better than sacrifice.

Kind Blessings,
