"And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,” Luke 17:12- 15.

The simplest definition of Crisis is this: "a difficult situation of a person or thing".

We do not find this term in the Bible, but we do see in the biblical text difficult moments lived by different characters. The most logical reaction before a crisis is to drown in negative feelings. Our mind wanders in a misty sea of doubts, fears and questions.

But there must be a massive difference between those who have their "eyes on Jesus", and those who do not know him. For those who have "built upon the Rock " the Lord says that: "Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man,…". This means that crises can strengthen our spiritual muscles, contribute to our growth and lead us to make decisions that were unthinkable.

Crises are opportunities that life gives us to bring out the capacities and resources which we have accumulated through reading, studying, meditating and keeping the word of God.

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge... " Hosea 4:6.

Definitely, the crisis helps us know how to position ourselves in front of our own and others, and realize what is our relationship with God. In moments of crisis, the strengths and weaknesses of the human being emerge.

Today we have a countless number of recipes, opinions, new revelations (we believe that God speaks throughout time), but it is important to know that: "And we have the word of prophecy made more sure..." (2 Peter 1:19).

In these days there have been so many of these recipes, opinions and revelations, that the people have arrived at superstition, including biblically controversial “visions” and home remedies, that by doing them you would receive healing.

Others do not believe in the reality of the pandemic, nor fear it, because they are protected. It is true that "God is our refuge and strength...", but "whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s...".

The instructions that we find in the Old Testament given by the Lord, we think that just met as rules for spiritual cleansing, but we find in the Scriptures that God also cared for the physical health of His people, that is why we find a public health ordinance that today, many villages are still taking into account. Deuteronomy 23:13, tells us: "And you shall have a paddle or shovel among your weapons, and when you sit down outside [to relieve yourself], you shall dig a hole with it and turn back and cover up what has come from you."

The portion of the Bible, with which we began this brief study, shows us a situation that goes back to Leviticus chapter 13, because it corresponded to the priests to certify, after complying with certain protocolary measures.

hose who have skin conditions should be presented to the priest, who had the authority to determine if the condition was or not leprosy. First, he had to examine the patient and if he showed symptoms of the disease, the person would be locked up for 7 days (quarantine), at the end of the period of confinement the priest would conduct a rigorous examination, if he still could not determine if there was a disease or not, he would lock up the person for another period, and at the end of this period, he again would examine him, if the plague had spread, he was declared unclean and therefore expelled from the community for the purpose that he would not contaminate another.

It is for this reason that the Lord, upon hearing the loud cry of the ten lepers, who kept their "social distance", as demanded by law, 100 feet of separation, which Christ did not violate, but ordered the 10 lepers to present themselves to the priest who was the person who had the authority to declare a leper healed.

In other words, we are not exempt from fulfilling our responsibility of observing the provisions of the competent bodies. Publio Terencio Africano said "I am man, nothing human is alien to me...".

It is up to us Christians to continue to understand that in times of crisis: "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help?” (Psalms 121:1). Our confidence is placed in the Lord and we will continue to stand firm on the principles of God's Word.
