Quarantine can difficult but this Tiktok video sharing biblical references about quarantine brings hope and faith in this critical time.
Tiktok is a social video-sharing mobile application owned by the Chinese tech company ByteDance. With over a billion users worldwide, Tiktok quickly became the top mobile app across the globe. Users mainly share entertaining videos but there is a rise of faith-based content.
Tiktok video as a platform
Tatum Scott didn’t miss the chance to use the platform to share her faith and bring encouragement. The 17 year old created a Tiktok video with ‘Waymaker’ as the background music.

“I just read something amazing…” she wrote. “The Latin root of the word ‘quarantine’ is ‘forty’ and here is what the Bible says about 40….”
She then narrated situations from the Bible that involve 40: flood lasting 40 days, Moses fled to Egypt for 40 years, Moses stayed in Mt Sinai for 40 days to receive the commandments and Jesus fasted for 40 days.
“A group of theologians think the number 40 represents ‘change’. Something will happen after these 40 days of quarantine. Just believe and pray. Remember, whenever the number 40 appears in the Bible, there is a ‘change’,” she continued.
She added, “We are in the year of 2020 and 20 + 20 = 40. Also, 2020 is the year of the United States Census. Jesus Christ, the savior of the world, was born during a census. 2020 is perfect vision. May our sight focus on the Lord and live according to His perfect vision for us knowing He holds us.”
Her creative way of sharing appealed to many as the video reached to more than a million views.
“Rivers are cleaning and vegetation is growing. The air is becoming cleaner because of less pollution. Most importantly, people are turning to Christ. The best is yet to come!”
