How Christians Survived the European Pandemic





How Christians Survived the European Plague


This blog post on How Christians Survived the European Plague which is also known as the Black Death or Bubonic Plague of the 1400s can possibly help you survive the current Coronavirus pandemic of 2020. I will therefore update it as I get new information or insights so please bookmark it and share it.


1. Emulate Oberammergau
The Black Plague in the Middle Ages had many similarities with the Coronavirus plague today. For starters many people were dying and there was no cure. However, some Christian were able able to survive this plague.

These Christians lived in Oberammergau which is a town in Germany and they promised God that they would perform a Play on the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ every 10 years if He saved their lives. 

After making this vow, no other person from their town died from the disease. These Christians performed the first play in 1634 and they have kept their promise since then though they postponed the plays due to the world wars.


How to Survive Coronavirus Covid19 Pandemic

Therefore consider emulating the Oberammergau Christians and promising God something if He keeps you alive through this current Covid19 pandemic.

For example you can promise to do something that involves spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ just like they did. This is because at that time (around 1400s) Bibles were very rare and so many people knew about the events of the life of Jesus Christ by watching plays about it.

So consider preaching to the community that you have access to at this time of social distancing and quarantine or support the ministries that minister the Word of God like Christian Stress Management or any other ministry that God leads you to.






In addition once the current covid19 pandemic is over, try to visit Oberammergau in Germany so that you can see the Passion Play and experience this rich Christian history of a people who made a pact with God.

How to Bargain with God like Jacob, Hannah, Jephthah


This bargaining with God or promising God to do something for Him if He does something for you is biblical because we can see several examples of people who did it in the Bible.


a. Jacob's Promise to God
When Jacob was sent to Padan Aram by his father to look for a wife, one night he dreamt of a ladder that stretched from earth to heaven which had angels ascending and descending with the Lord God standing above it.

When Jacob woke up he made a vow saying, "If God will be with me and keep me on this journey that I am going and give me food to eat and clothing to wear so that I return to my father's house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God and this stone that I have set as a pillar shall be God's house and I will give You a tenth of all that You give me." (Genesis 28:20-22)

Thus we can see that Jacob asked God for God's presence, God's protection and God's provision in exchange for serving God as his God and tithing. 

We know that God kept His end of the agreement and protected Jacob because when he started his journey to return back to Padan Aram, Laban begun to pursue him but God appeared to Laban in a dream and told him, "Be careful that you speak to Jacob neither good nor bad." (Genesis 31:24)

When Laban caught up with him, he even confessed "It is in my power to harm you but the God of your father spoke to me last night and told me, "Be careful that you speak to Jacob neither good nor bad." (Genesis 31:29)

So God protected Jacob from Laban harming him by speaking badly to him and harming him physically.

God also kept his side of the bargain and His Presence was with Jacob because Jacob said to Laban, "Unless the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac had been with me, surely you would have sent me away empty-handed.(Genesis 31:42) This was because Jacob had had worked for Laban for 20 years and in those years his wages had been changed 10 times.

God had also blessed Jacob with a lot of food to eat because as he was returning home, he prepared a gift for his brother Esau that included 200 female goats, 20 males goats, 200 ewes, 20 rams, 30 milk camels with their colts, 40 cows, 10 bulls, 20 female donkeys and 10 foals. (Genesis 32:13-15)

Thus we can see that Jacob was very rich even by today's standard because a person who can give away a gift of this value, is extremely wealthy.



Jacob making a promise to God: "If God will be with me and keep me on this journey that I am going and give me food to eat and clothing to wear so that I return to my father's house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God and this stone that I have set as a pillar shall be God's house and I will give You a tenth of all that You give me." (Genesis 28:20-22)



b. Hannah's Promise to God
Hannah made a vow saying, "O Lord of hosts, if You will look on the affliction of Your maidservant and ... give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life." (1 Samuel 1:11)

God blessed Hannah with a baby boy known as Samuel and she fulfilled her end of the deal by taking him to the temple to serve God. 


Hannah making a promise to God "O Lord of hosts, if You will look on the affliction of Your maidservant and ... give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life." (1 Samuel 1:11)




c.Jephthah's Promise to God
Jephthah made a vow to the Lord saying, "If You will deliver the people of Ammon into my hands, then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me when I return shall be the Lord's and I will offer it up as a burnt offering." (Judges 11:30-31)

God gave Jephthah victory over the Ammonites and Jephthah kept his end of the bargain by offering up his daughter.

Thus we can see that Jacob, Hannah and Jephthah make a deal with God to receive His presence, His provision, His protection, His blessings in the form of a baby and victory in battles with their enemies.  


Jephthah making a promise to God "If You will deliver the people of Ammon into my hands, then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me when I return shall be the Lord's and I will offer it up as a burnt offering." (Judges 11:30-31)


Therefore consider promising God something if He saves your life and that of your family members from this coronavirus pandemic. However, as you do so, Do not be rash with your mouth and do not let your mouth utter anything hastily before God because God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few. (Ecclesiastes 5:2)


When making a promise to God Do not be rash with your mouth and do not let your mouth utter anything hastily before God because God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few. (Ecclesiastes 5:2)






How to Use Aromatherapy Essential Oils to Survive a Pandemic

Use Antiviral Essential Oils to Survive a Pandemic
Using essential oils was another thing that people did to survive the Black Plague or Bubonic Plague. Legend has it that four thieves of Marseilles who used to rob the dead bodies of the plague victims survived by using a blend of herbs steeped in vinegar that is said to have included rosemary, sage, lavender, rue, camphor, garlic and cloves. 

Though the historical contents of their protective blend vary considerably depending on the source, the ingredients mentioned most frequently are cloves, cinnamon, rosemary and lemon and this has come to be known as the Thieves Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blend. 

Thieves Essential Oil Recipe

It is important to note that when the thieves were caught, they revealed their secret and this blend of herbs in vinegar was later used by Doctors who were treating the plague patients to keep them from contracting the illness. Therefore using these protective herbs can also be beneficial. 

Using essential oils extracted from  these herbs is even more beneficial because they are more concentrated and only a few drops are needed. This is especially true for those which have been proven by medical studies to have antiviral properties like tea tree, eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils. To learn about 12 essential oils with antiviral properties read Aromatherapy for Viral Infections.




For example one study found that when tea tree essential oil and eucalyptus essential oil were diffused with a nebulizer they inactivated more than 95%  of Influenza A virus and E. coli phage M13 within 15 minutes. (Usachev et al 2013)   

Though the coronavirus is different from the influenza virus it may be more beneficial to use these natural essential oils instead of commercial air fresheners which have been shown to emit that are classified as toxic by federal law according to this study and linked to numerous skin, respiratory disorders, dermatological disorders, neurological disorders (e.g. convulsions), hormonal disorders, birth defects and cancer.

To use tea tree essential oil and eucalyptus essential oil to purify the air in your home you will need an aromatherapy diffuser like this one which is sold together with the tea tree and eucalyptus essential oil as well as lavender, orange, peppermint, lemongrass, jasmine, nutmeg, clove and spearmint essential oils.

To use it, fill the water tank and add 4 drops of tea tree essential oil and 3 drops of eucalyptus and switch it on for 15 minutes.  

To learn more aromatherapy diffuser recipes read Aromatherapy for Viral Infections.



You can also use these aromatherapy oils to make body massage oils that you can rub on your chest and feet to relieve flu symptoms like congestion and muscle aches. 





Stand on God's Promises for Healing
To stand on the promises of God for healing do the following:

a. Find the Promise
Go through your Bible to find the Promises of God for Healing (you can also find them in the book How to Fight for your Health with Bible Verses 3rd Edition)

b. Fulfill the Requirements 
Fulfill the requirements that God lays out for each promise to be fulfilled.
For example if you choose You shall serve the Lord your God and He shall bless thy bread and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. (Exodus 23:25ensure that you are serving God in some capacity. 


c. Fix your Mind
Fix your mind on that Promise of God and keep it fixed there. If doubts enter your mind nullify them by meditating on that Promise of God. Is someone tells you that you cannot be healed, repeat the Promise of God to yourself either loudly or softly under your breath. If the statistics on the news paint a gloomy picture, repeat the Promise of God for healing to yourself.






Obey your Government
The second thing you can do to survive the covid19 pandemic is to obey your Government's directives. For example most Governments are recommending the following:
1. Social distancing
2. Not touching your face
3. Washing your hands frequently
4. Using a hand sanitizer





Stock Up on Food
Stock up on food supplies that will enable you and your family to eat a balanced diet at least once a day.The following are the top 10 times to consider when stocking up:

1. Water

2. Dried beans - they can last for years without refrigeration

3. White rice - it can last for years without refrigeration

4. Salt - it can last for years without refrigeration

5. Honey - it can last for years without refrigeration and it can also be used to sweeten food and as an antiseptic for wounds.

6. Sugar - it can last for years without refrigeration

7. Dehydrated fruits and vegetables and especially those which boost immunity like blueberries and kale

8. Powdered spices like turmeric, black pepper and ginger. 

9. Powdered milk because it is a complete protein. 

10. Extra virgin olive oil because it can be used for cooking and for lighting.



Take a daily multivitamin
I personally believe in taking a daily multivitamin even if you are eating balanced diet to ensure that you get adequate supply of micronutreints. This is because the soils which many foods grow in are depleted of these micronutrients and therefore the foods we consumeare have minimal amounts of them.

I personally take Centrum and I recommend it because it contains vitamin A, vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B7 (biotin), vitamin B9 (folic acid), vitamin B12 (cobalamin), vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, calcium, chromium, copper, iodine, iron,  magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, phosphorous, zinc. 





Sleep Adequately
Medical studies like this one and this one show that lack of sleep depresses the immune system and makes a person more likely to get sick after being exposed to viruses like those of the common cold. In addition it can also result in poor recovery since the production of antibodies and other cells which fight infections are reduced during periods of sleep deprivation.

Therefore ensure that you get adequate sleep which is atleast 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night.


Manage Stress Effectively
Medical studies like this one have also proven that chronic stress predisposes a person to developing infections and can aggravate conditions like coronary heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

Therefore manage stress effectively because stress also suppresses the immune system and makes a person more predisposed to developing infections.

One simple way of managing stress and boosting your immune system is by exercising for 30 minutes 5 days each week. You can do this in the privacy of your home by skipping a jumping rope or following exercise DVDs. 

To learn other methods of stress management read Christian Stress Management Course which teaches you how to manage stress by combining time-tested principles from the Bible with medically proven relaxation techniques.

The steps of an effective War Room Prayer Strategy for your Health include:


1. Identify the Devil's Device
The devil uses many strategies to fight God's people and their health but We are not ignorant of his devices. (2 Corinthians 2:11) Theses devices of the devil include destruction, devaluation, discouragement, fear, frustration and murder.   

You can identify the device being used against you by paying attention to what you are experiencing. For example if your health is being destroyed, know that destruction is the device being used by the enemy because Jesus said, “The thief comes to steal, to kill and to destroy.” (John 10:10)

However, Jesus is the antidote for this problem because He taught, I have come so that they may have life and have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) 

To deal with this device of destruction, you therefore have to accept Jesus as your Savior so that you can receive the abundant life that He brings. To do this say with your mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that when He died for our sins, God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

To learn more about the devices of the devil read We Are Not Ignorant Of His Devices which uses examples from the Bible to teach you 20 strategies that the devil uses to attack God's people and explains how to deal with each of those devices.


We Are Not Ignorant Of His Devices (2 Corinthians 2:11) uses examples from the Bible to teach you 20 strategies of the devil and how to deal with each of those devices.



2. Put on the Armor of God
The Bible instructs us to, "Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the tricks of the devil." (Ephesians 6:11)

This armor of God consists of the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the shoes of the Gospel of peace, the shield of faith and the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God. (Ephesians 6:14-17)

Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. ... Take up the whole armor of God so that you may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all, continue standing. (Ephesians 6:11-13)



To put on this armor of God you have to do the following:

1. Put on the helmet of salvation by saying with your mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believing in your heart that when Jesus died for our sins, God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

2. Put on the breastplate of righteousness by always doing the right thing in the sight of God.

3. Tie the belt of truth by being truthful in all your dealings.

4. Put on the shoes of the Gospel of peace by reading your Bible every day.

5. Take up the shield of faith by believing God and His Word in the Bible because this will help you neutralize the attacks of the enemy. You should also make a point of listening to preaching of the Gospel each day because Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. (Romans 10:17)

6. Take up the sword of the spirit which is the word of God by speaking Scriptures over your health.

3. Praise and Thank God
The Bible tells us to Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. (Psalm 100:4) 

This means that when you want to enter God's presence you have to thank Him and praise Him.

Therefore begin praising God by reading and personalizing praise psalms like the following:

Bless the Lord O my soul and do not forget all His benefits:
He forgives all my iniquities,
He heals all my diseases,
He redeems my life from destruction,
He crowns me with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
He satisfies my mouth with good things
So that my youth is renewed like the eagle's. (Psalm 103:2-5)


Bless the Lord O my soul and do not forget all His benefits:  He forgives all my iniquities,  He heals all my diseases,  He redeems my life from destruction,  He crowns me with lovingkindness and tender mercies,  He satisfies my mouth with good things  So that my youth is renewed like the eagle's. (Psalm 103:2-5)

You can also play Christian praise songs on your DVD player or computer or radio and singing along.



Combine this with thanking God for what He has done for you in the past and praising Him for what He will do for you in the future. 

You can also praise God for Who He is especially if you need Him to use those attributes to help you. For example if you need Him to heal you, you can praise Him by saying, "I praise You because You are Jehovah Rapha (Exodus 15:26) the Lord Who Heals."

War Room Prayers for your Health

4. Pray Effectively
The Bible tells us that The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous person availeth much. (James 5:16)

Therefore, once you are in the presence of God begin praying effectively so that your prayers can achieve a lot by using Bible verses since The SWORD of the spirit is the WORD of God. (Ephesians 6:17) 

Ensure that you are also praying fervently by proclaiming the scriptures passionately and enthusiastically. 

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous person availeth much. (James 5:16)



Bible verses or SWORD WORDS that you can use to pray effectively and fervently for your health include:

Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to heal me O Lord and I shall be healed. Save me O Lord and I shall be saved because You are the one I praise. (Jeremiah 17:14)


Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to heal me because my bones are troubled. (Psalm 6:2) You can modify this prayer and insert the part of your body that is sick and the cause of the illness. For example if you have a chest problem you can pray, Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to heal me because my chest is troubled by an infection/cancer/autoimmune disease/etc


Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to hear my prayers, see my tears and heal me. (2 Kings 20:5)


Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to help me prosper and be in good health just as my soul prospers. (3 John 1:2)


Lord I ask you in the name of Jesus to be merciful to me and heal me for I have sinned against You. (Psalm 41:4)


To learn more, read SWORD WORDS which is a compilation of War Room Scriptures you can use to pray for different things and a battle plan to help you win your Christian spiritual warfare battles. 


SWORD WORDS from the Bible to say as Warfare Prayers and Christian Affirmations for your Health


As you pray ardently for your health using SWORD WORDS, ensure that you are also living a righteous life because for an effective and fervent prayer to achieve a lot, the person saying it must be morally upright because it is written that The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16) and The eyes of God are on the righteous and His ears are open to their prayers. (1 Peter 3:2)

Ensure that you have also confessed your sins to God and asked for His forgiveness because The Lord’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save you and His ear is not heavy that He cannot hear you. But your iniquities have separated you from your God and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He will not hear. (Isaiah 59:1-2) 

To learn more read How to Pray Effectively which uses examples from the Bible to teach you what you should do to ensure that your prayers are answered.
How to Pray Effectively uses Bible examples to teach you the things you should do to ensure your prayers are answered.


5. Have Faith
As you pray for your health, you have to believe that you will receive what you are asking for because we are told to Ask in faith (James 1:6) 

Therefore if you are praying for healing, you have to pray while seeing with yourself with your mind's eye holding the test results that have come back as normal because Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)  


Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)


If you feel or think that you do not have any faith, know that is a lie because God has dealt to each person a measure of faith. (Romans 12:3) 

If you feel or think that your faith is too small to achieve anything, understand that is also a lie because Jesus taught, "If you have faith as small a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)

If you find that your faith is wavering because one day you are certain that your prayers will be answered and the next you are not sure, simply pray "Lord I believe. Help my unbelief." (Mark 9:24) 

Then emulate David by reminding yourself of how God has helped you in the past or how He helped people similar situations either in real life or in the Bible because when he encountered Goliath, David said, "The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." (I Samuel 17:37)

How to Increase your faith uses examples from the Bible to teach you how to strengthen your Christian faith in God.


You can also watch the War Room movie which strengthens my faith in God every time I watch it.





6. Fast
Jesus taught that somethings have to be dealt with by combining prayer with fasting when He said, "This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting." (Matthew 17:21

Jesus also said this when the disciples had been unable to cast out a deaf and dumb spirit from a boy for He told them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. (Mark 9:29)

This shows us that the evil spirits that are the root cause of some diseases can only come out after engaging in prayers and fasting. 

Therefore combine praying with abstaining from food for 1 day or 3 days or 21 days or 40 days. If you have never fasted before you can begin by skipping 1 meal. If you have any medical condition or you are taking medication, please consult your doctor first.


"This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting." (Matthew 17:21)



As you abstain from food ensure that you are not engaging in other pleasurable activities or taking advantage of people because when the Israelites asked God “Why have we fasted and You do not see? (Isaiah 58:3) He told them, “On the day you fast, you find pleasure and exploit your laborers.” (Isaiah 58:3)

To learn more read How to Fast Effectively which uses Bible examples to teach you the things you should do to ensure that you get great results when you fast. 

How to Fast Effectively uses Bible examples to teach you what you should do to get great results when you abstain from food for spiritual purposes.





SWORD WORDS from the Bible to say as Warfare Prayers and Christian Affirmations for your Health



7 Promises of God Scriptures for your Health




7. Stand on God's Promises
As you wait to receive what you are praying for, emulate Abraham for Abraham did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief. But he was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God while being fully convinced that what God had promised, He was able to perform. (Romans 4:20-21)  

Therefore meditate on the Promises of God for healing while being fully convinced that what God has promised in His Word, He is able to perform for you just as He did for Abraham and also because All the promises of God in Jesus Christ are Yes and Amen. (2 Corinthians 1:20) 


Abraham did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief. But he was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God while being fully convinced that what God had promised, He was able to perform. (Romans 4:20-21)




Some of the promises of God for healing that you can meditate on include:

I will take away sickness from the midst of you. (Exodus 23:25)

I will restore health to you and heal your wounds says the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)

I will heal them and reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth. (Jeremiah 33:6)

I have seen his ways and I will heal him. I will also lead him and restore comforts to him. (Isaiah 57:18)

You restore me and make me live. (Isaiah 38:16)

By His stripes I am healed. (Isaiah 53:5)

The Lord raises those that are bowed down. (Psalm 146:8)

He healeth the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3)

The Angel of the Lord God encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers them. (Psalm 34:7)

The righteous cry out and the Lord God hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. (Psalm 34:17)

Blessed is the person who considers the poor for the Lord will deliver them in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve them and keep them alive and they will be blessed on the earth. He will not deliver them to the will of their enemies. The Lord will strengthen them when they are ill and sustain them on their sickbed . (Psalm 41:1-3)


Blessed is the person who considers the poor for the Lord will deliver them in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve them and keep them alive and they will be blessed on the earth. He will not deliver them to the will of their enemies. The Lord will strengthen them when they are ill and sustain them on their sickbed . (Psalm 41:1-3)


Do not be afraid because I am with you. Do not be dismayed because I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)


Do not be afraid because I am with you. Do not be dismayed because I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)





To learn more promises of God for healing, go through your Bible or read The Promises of God and Their Conditions.

The Promises of God and their Conditions teaches you the things that God says He will give you and what you have to do to get them.


8. Speak to the Situation

Jesus taught, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting." (Matthew 17:20-21)

This shows us that the keys to dealing with impossible situations are your faith, your words, your prayers and your fasting.


Therefore even if you are dealing with a medical condition that the doctors have declared incurable know that Nothing will be impossible for you (Matthew 17:20) if you combine praying with fasting and having faith in God with speaking to the mountainous health challenge you are facing.


"If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting." (Matthew 17:20-21)




You can speak to your health every morning and evening by using the SWORD WORDS you used to pray for it as your Christian affirmations. To do this, you can modify them in the following way:


The Lord God is healing me and I am healed. (Jeremiah 17:14)


The Lord God has heard my prayers, seen my tears and is healing me. (2 Kings 20:5)


He sent His word and healed me. (Psalm 107:20)


I live an abundant life because Jesus came so that I have an abundant life. (2 Kings 20:5)
