Today’s reading Leviticus 13:47-14:57
Leviticus 14:46 Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the even.
God taught His people how to avoid diseases and infections way before science knew anything about it! When people have colds or the flu they will not shake hands, may stay home from church, cover their mouths when they cough or whatever. Those are good precautions but imagine this.
Moses gave detailed instructions about something that could be similar to a mold contamination in our homes today. They were to try and treat it the home. They were to scrape it, abandon it for a certain amount of time and if that didn’t work they were to destroy the house.
Even if you went in the house you were considered contaminated and to stay away from others for a certain amount of time. I am always super impressed when I read these things in the Bible.
It makes me know that the Bible is the very Word of God. How else could men have known the risks of infection and disease so long before it was discovered by science. It was 1668 before men started learning how disease spread and it would take them 200 more years to learn what God told Moses nearly 4,000 years before.
You are reading an awesome book. Read it and worship.
