COVID-19 and the Passover: God’s Word to His People in This Hour
Passover (otherwise known as Pesach) is the first feast of the Jewish year. It’s one of the most celebrated and sacred feasts of the LORD, namely because it reveals our Messiah so clearly. When Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins, He fulfilled the Passover perfectly.
On the night Jesus was betrayed He said:
When Jesus Christ our Messiah was finally sacrificed, it was on Passover.
The world has never been the same.
Fast forward — People all over the world are shut up in their houses during one of the holiest weeks of the year: Passover. Much like ancient Israel, people are at home waiting for the plague to pass.
13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
Passover begins Wednesday, April 8th at sundown.
As believers we continue to keep the Passover feast in remembrance of our Lord as He commanded by eating the bread of His broken body, and drinking the cup of His shed blood (see 1 Corinthians 11:23-32). This is often termed ‘holy communion’ within churches. However, biblically, this is actually our new covenant celebration of the Passover feast, which is otherwise known as ‘the Lord’s Supper’.
For the first time since the 1917-18 Spanish Flu killed approximately 100 million, countries around the world are officially locked down. The U.S. government anticipates that the next two weeks will be very difficult as we reach the peak of infection and subsequent deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic.
God has not left us without His instruction. He has spoken and has continued to speak. In this post we’re going to discuss God’s word on the COVID-19 pandemic, and our biblical response.
The Word of the Lord Fulfilled
I have previously shared with my readership the prophecy of my late friend Nancy Goate, the Secretary and Treasurer of United Tribes for Christ Fellowship in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who shared with me a prophecy about COVID-19 in the Spring of 2018.
Many may wonder, “Who is Nancy Goate?” That question deserves answering. Nancy was a dear friend who loved the LORD with all her heart. She worked tirelessly with Native American ministries across the United States and Canada to unite the Body of Christ and awaken the Native American people to their destiny in this hour. I worked intimately with Nancy and United Tribes for Christ Fellowship for three years prior to her passing.
When Nancy called me in early 2018 she was overwhelmed with what she had heard so clearly from the LORD. With sun and springtime upon us it seemed ill-timed, and because she was not a medical professional, she wasn’t sure how to interpret what she had received. That’s when she felt compelled to call and tell me what the Lord said:
Pray over your houses. There is a virus coming. They created it, and it’s designed to kill.
It was one of the clearest words she’d ever received from God, and it rightly had her alarmed. When I heard it, I immediately took note. Since that time Nancy Goate tragically passed on January 15, 2019. She never witnessed this word come to fruition. But the word of the Lord lived on, proving to be true. Less than two years later COVID-19 hijacked the entire world. Recently, United States leadership confirmed its epidemiology: COVID-19 was indeed created by the Chinese Communist Party (source), further confirming the word of the Lord.
When COVID-19 initiatives were first being implemented, I initially released the Lord’s word to my readership in our February newsletter. Now, as the pandemic unfolds, I feel further compelled to share it with the public, especially with regard to the time. There is something God wants to urgently remind us: He is calling us to keep the feast, for His Passover Lamb, Jesus Christ, has been sacrificed.
His instruction was very simple: Pray over your houses. The rest is history. The plague has come. They created it. And it’s killing innocent people worldwide.

How to Pray Over Your House
As a Christian your house is more than your physical home or dwelling. It’s more than your address or residence. The Word of God declares we are the temple of His Holy Spirit. He no longer resides within temples made by the hands of men, but within us. We are the living breathing Body of Christ, knit together by His indwelling Spirit and shed blood.
I encourage you to continue to watch and pray as the LORD commanded in His Word. As you walk this out with Him, be vigilant in following Him, obeying Him, and walking in His Spirit.
1 Corinthians 11:23-32
If you would like to celebrate Passover, it’s very simple.
As a believer you can take holy communion by partaking of the Lord’s Supper with your family,
doing so in remembrance of Him as He commanded.
A New Word from the Lord through B. L. Booth
B. L. Booth is an elder friend who has known the Lord since 1971. He and his wife are both Spirit-filled believers who have a professed passion for Jesus Christ and His Church in these last days. They live quiet lives and are humble servants of God. They have been faithfully interceding with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic when God brought revelation. Just this week the Lord imparted a word to Mr. Booth, which he felt compelled to share with the Body of Christ. However, he was uncertain about how to get that word of the Lord to His people. I offered him the opportunity to interview, which he kindly allowed. The full interview is as follows:
EP: Thank you so much Mr. Booth for allowing us the opportunity to interview. It’s an honor to have you share. My first question is with regard to its timing. The height of the COVID-19 pandemic coincides with Passover this year. When I initially received the word from my friend Nancy Goate in 2018 the Lord made it very clear a virus was coming, that it had been created and was designed to kill. With that He gave clear instruction for us to pray over our houses. This is indeed being considered a modern-day plague. What has God shared with you about this virus and its relation to Passover?
BLB: First off, let me say to those reading this, I sincerely feel in my heart this is something the Lord wants me to share with my brothers and sisters in the Church. I would highly advise that anything written by myself and/or anyone concerning what the Lord may or may not be doing in the Earth today should be taken to the Lord in prayer, researched, tested and confirmed as being from the Lord.
Over the past few weeks, I have sensed the Lord wanting me to look at the distinct possibility there may very well be a correlation between the first Jewish Passover in Egypt and the current Jewish Passover (Easter) season that is fast approaching this week. The one thing I do know to be true, is the Lord has impressed upon me the urgency of the hour and the need to get this out in a timely manner for my brother and sisters in the Church to read and judge for themselves. I do know that we are literally living in the last days, witnessing and watching prophecy unfold before our very eyes.
If you remember, it was during the time of Moses, the Lord spoke instruction to Moses that he return to Egypt, with a message from the Lord advising that Pharaoh release the children of Israel from slavery and bondage. The story continues as Pharaoh refused to comply with Lord’s request to let God’s people go. Ultimately, the Pharaoh, whose heart being hardened, refused to let the children of Israel go and ordered the first born of Israel be killed. The Lord had other thoughts and was about to respond in like manner by sending the Death Angel throughout Egypt with the instruction to take the firstborn of Egypt. However, prior to the event, the Lord instructed Moses to warn the children of Israel of the impending doom and instructed that each Jewish household apply the blood of a lamb on the doorpost of each house as a sign, so that the first born of Israel would be spared. The Death Angel passed though Egypt, over each house where the lamb’s blood had been applied on the doorpost. And the first born of Israel was spared.
So, you are probably asking, how does this correlate with today’s Jewish Passover (Easter) season? What I do know is that the first Passover was fulfilled. I do know that it was during the Jewish Passover when Jesus entered Jerusalem. He entered as the Lamb of God. He who knew no sin became sin. The Lord was put to death on the cross as a sacrificial lamb. He is the Lamb of God. Jesus willingly laid down his life for us, taking the sins for all mankind upon Himself, accepting and enduring the total, ultimate judgment of God upon Himself. In doing so as our Savior, the Lord Jesus has made a way where there was no way to salvation. But now through Him, we have opportunity to accept the free gift of salvation He has provided. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, being the only way to the Father. It has been over 2000 years since Jesus ascended to the Father in Heaven. I do know that He came the first time as the Lamb of God, and He is coming back as the Lion of Judah.
As with the first Passover, I have a very strong sense of urgency. The Lord is wanting my brothers and sisters in the Church to pray over their house and plead the precious blood of Jesus over their house (we are the living temple of the Holy Spirit who resides in us). I sense the Lord is wanting us to pray with the strongest urgency, over our house and plead the Blood of Jesus over the respective doorpost of their own heart. Please pray over and plead the precious Blood of Jesus over your families, your loved one, and others the Lord would put on your heart. I can’t begin to explain, but I get a very strong sense in my spirit that the gap is about widen to such an extent, that we as His children will have to make a choice. The Lord is asking for our whole heart. I sense strongly the Lord is wanting His people to decide if they are with Him or against Him. We can’t have it both ways. I have had a very strong sense the Lord may very well be allowing this modern-day pandemic to drive the lost, including believers who have wandered away from the Lord, back to Himself. I can only say, please give consideration, to what I am sharing and the urgency with which it is intended; time will tell what the Lord is truly doing in the Earth today.
EP: There are a lot of people facing death right now in many forms. There are those who have lost loved ones. There are those who are critically ill and facing imminent death. And finally, there are those who are ill but don’t know if they will survive their infection. What is God saying to these individuals?
BLB: I do know the Lord loves everyone. I can only say to those who are either sick, dealing with family member, and/or a loss of family member, all that we truly have and can do in a time such as this is to call upon the Lord Jesus. Please put you trust, your hope, and your faith in Him. He is faithful to watch over you and strengthen you. May the Lord will be with you. I would say that if you and/or a loved one does not know Him as Lord and Savior, please seek Him while there is time to ask for His forgiveness and to receive the gift of salvation. Again, I have a strong sense of urgency, the Lord is calling His people to pray over and plead the precious Blood of Jesus over those who are either sick, dealing with family members, and/or a loss of family members this Passover (Easter) season. Jesus is truly our only hope in a lost and dying world.
EP: How is God using this as a modern-day plague to exact His judgment in the earth?
BLB: I can only say that I am sensing the Lord is using this pandemic to bring His righteous judgment into the earth. As a citizen of this country, I fear those in the earth and within this nation, including the church, have lost their Fear of the Lord. Also, as a nation we have lost righteousness and holiness. I have a very strong sense that the Lord is about to re-establish the fear of the Lord, righteousness and holiness back into the Earth. Again, I have a strong sense of urgency, the Lord is calling His People to pray over and plead the precious Blood of Jesus over our House this Passover (Easter) season. Jesus is truly our only hope in a lost and dying world.
EP: What is the ultimate outcome for His chosen elect?
BLB: I am hopeful that during this pandemic, many will come to the Lord Jesus as Savior, embracing the hope and salvation that we have in Him; putting their trust and their faith in Him as our Lord and Savior.
EP: What can we anticipate as the election draws near?
BLB: I have a very strong sense that we are in a battle for the soul and the heart of our nation. I sincerely believe this year to be a tipping point milestone for this nation, including the Church. Again, I have a strong sense that the people of God are key in the ongoing spiritual struggle for the heart and soul of this nation. I sense strongly in my spirit the outcome of this election will determine the destiny of a nation that was established under God with liberty and justice for all. It is obvious that our nation, our constitution, and our freedoms, are all under attack by demonic spiritual forces, which are contrary to this nation and its people, including the Church. Again, I have a strong sense of urgency and dread that the Lord is calling His People to pray over and plead the precious Blood of Jesus over our House this Passover (Easter) season. We have all heard it said, “United we stand. Divided we fall.”
In closing, it’s time to keep the feast. In the days ahead I believe we will witness the Lion of Judah roar.
Cheers & Shalom,
