Long Life Belongs To You!

O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”
— 1 Cor 15:55

There are many people who believe death is the ultimate enemy that has to be destroyed (1 Cor. 15:26). Yes, the Word of God says this in regards to the things to come but this does NOT give death access to our lives before our time! The Bible says in Exodus 23:26, “the number of your days I will fulfill.” Your days here on earth WILL be fulfilled. 

“How can I know how long my days are Adalis?” Turn to the Word!!! Genesis 6:3 gives you the answer! “Then the LORD said, "My Spirit will not put up with humans for such a long time, for they are only mortal flesh. In the future, their normal lifespan will be no more than 120 years.” Your days to be fulfilled are 120 years! Death cannot intercept the Word of God! Look at our Elder Brother, Jesus. John 7:30 says, “Then the leaders tried to arrest him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come.” 

Once you know all you’re guaranteed from God’s Word, nothing or no one can take you out! Jesus fulfilled His mission on earth and then gave His life up WILLINGLY (John 10:18). How about Paul? They stoned him in Acts 14:19-20 and he popped right up and kept preaching the Gospel. At the end of his life he declared, “ For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Tim. 4:6-7). Paul knew and gave his own life for the sake of the Gospel! 

You’re NOT better off dead! Don’t buy that lie. This life is but a vapor (James 4:14). In the long scheme of things, your life will be a drop in the bucket in comparison to all eternity. Make it count! Fulfill your days! Think about holding your great grand babies! Think about Moses stronger than he ever was at 120! Reject DEATH! Jesus swallowed it up! And once you’ve decided to go, the transition will be all the more glorious! CHOOSE LIFE!!!
