For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
– John 5:4, The Holy Bible
This came to me in a dream yesterday:
In 1835 New York City was threatened with a serious outbreak of Cholera. The Croton Aqueduct and Reservoir was built, upstate, providing the city with fresh water, putting an end to the disease troubling New York at the time. This feat of engineering helped end the city’s outbreak of Cholera which was due to lack of fresh water!
The iconic Bethesda Fountain and Angel, in Central Park, commemorated this new reservoir. it was named after the Bethesda Pool of the New Testament, where an Angel whirled the waters with healing powers. The first to step into the pool became healed of whatever afflicted them.
It’s time to stir the “troubled waters.” It’s time to ask for help from the Angels and our unseen helpers. Here’s an easy prayer you can say, every time you hear news about the Coronavirus.
