Genesis 25:5 And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac. 25:6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country. 25:7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years. 25:8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people. 25:9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre; 25:10 The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

Dearly beloved brethren, Abraham died at the age of one hundred and seventy five years old.

Bible believing believers have the blessings of Abraham, they must not die young.

Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

God has not changed, Bible believing believers are not expected to die young [ The blessing of long life is for every child of God ].

Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

It is not true that God wants Bible believing believers to die at the age of seventy or eighty.

It was the wish of Moses, not the will of God.

Moses wrote the psalm and he himself died at the age of one hundred and twenty years.

Psalms 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

. The will of God for Bible believing believers to die is one hundred and twenty years. See it yourself. Believers are not expected to die young [ The blessing of long life is for every child of God ]

Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

God’s desire is to give us even more than one hundred and twenty, if we want it.

Psalms 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Beloved brethren, if God has not changed, should He make saints of old to live long and today’s saints to die young?

The answer is no.

Beloved brethren, see the following saints of old and how God gave them long life as He promised

Sarah: 127 years.

Genesis 23:1 And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were the years of the life of Sarah. 23:2 And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.

Abraham: 175 years.

Genesis 25:7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years. 25:8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.

Isaac: 180 years.

Genesis 35:27 And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned. 35:28 And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years. 35:29 And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

God has not changed, Bible believing believers are not expected to die young [ The blessing of long life is for every child of God ]

Jacob : 147 years.

Genesis 47:28 And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years. 47:29 And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called his son Joseph, and said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:

Joseph: 110 years.

Genesis 50:22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father’s house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years. 50:23 And Joseph saw Ephraim’s children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph’s knees. 50:24 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. 50:25 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence. 50:26 So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

Moses: 120 years.

Deuteronomy 34:7 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

Joshua : 110 years.

Joshua 24:29 And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old. 24:30 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathserah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash.

God has not changed, Bible believing believers are not expected to die young [ The blessing of long life is for every child of God ]

The reason why believers are dying young today is not in the inability of God to make them live long, it is because something is wrong, somewhere.

Dearly beloved brethren, when we get to heaven, we will know why some of our brethren and loved one died young.

But then, let us believe God to live to be one hundred and twenty years as He said, if Jesus tarries.

So live a lifestyle of biblical holiness and avoid exposing yourself to anything that can hurt you or terminate your life.

During the earthly ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, whenever He sensed trouble, He usually withdraw Himself.

Be like our Lord, begin to do same.

Matthew 12:14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. 12:15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

The good Lord shall help you and you shall live long in Jesus name.
