Covid-19 Psalm 19 Isaiah 26 and the Evangelical Proof-Texters

Covid-19 and the Evangelical Proof-Texters

‘proof-texters,’ sensation-mongers + chain-letter writers got their teeth into the present Covid-19 crisis
  •  enter your chambers, + shut your doors behind you +hide yourself >Until the indignation is past ?=? lockdown + self-isolation.
  •  Charismaniacs are urging people to ‘decree and declare’ authority over the virus + urging people not to ‘break the chain of prayer’ (whatever that is) by posting the deception on their own social media pages as well.
  • evangelicals of all stripes have been prone to proof-texting like this.
  • 1° rule of biblical understanding = Context! = help to get to the core of the question > ‘What does this verse mean?’
  • Isaiah 26 = warning to people of ancient Israel (God’s people) to shelter from the wrath of God. >> we can apply it to coming judgement of God upon the world, when Jesus shall return & all men of every age and nation shall give account of their lives => their wickedness punished.
    • refuge = Jesus.
search the Scriptures > in them you have eternal life (John 5:39)

Covid-19 and the Evangelical Proof-Texters

Well, it didn’t take long before the ‘proof-texters,’ sensation-mongers and the chain-letter writers got their teeth into the present Covid-19 crisis.  The misinterpretation of psalm 91 was sure to happen sooner or later, – without any reference to Psalm 90, of course.  But a recent ‘don’t break this chain‘ scam on social media has been based on a proof-texting use of Isaiah 26:20.  The text reads,
 
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.
So, of course, the proof-texters want to find in the words of that verse a prediction of our present state of lockdown and self-isolation.  Some have even claimed that there is more than a coincidence between between the text reference (26) and the date of the Lockdown announcement.  Worse still…
