    1. The days of our lives are seventy years ;And if by reason of strength they are eighty years. Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow ;For it is soon cut off, and we fly away. Psalms 90 :10. Long life, blessing or curse?

  2. I love these Scriptures and they really speak to me. I had so many questions also when I began to study these truths. I am still learning but one thing that helped me a lot to understand why God’s people parish for lack of knowledge and how we need to add works and understanding to our faith… is a CD that anyone can request and listen to and is totally a free gift available from I know it sure helped me!

  3. Amen to God ..thank you for answering my prayer..your promises are always true in the name of Jesus

      By staying in the word of God and doing what it says. When you miss it, repent and get back in and go on.

    2. Grow in ur knowledge of the word and do not neglect to gather with other believers.

  7. Nice selection of God’s word on this subject. You are waging a war against devil’s plan in this area. Good. Keep it up.

  8. this year 2016 will be my year of amazing grace and longlife and opendoors will be my portion that says the lord thy encient of days

  9. What about the faithful believers who don’t live long lives, die early of cancer, are murdered by a random act of violence or martered? Surely these are general promises of a life lived wisely honoring God but not a garuntee of old age for all God’s children.

    1. Friend, I understand your comment and the Bible has much to say. Here is a thought…we are only responsible for what we believe and not for what others believe. God’s word promises believers they can live a long life, be healed of any disease and be protected from random acts of violence. However, there are millions of fine Christians that love God but are immature spiritually and when as an example, they get sick, they are not sure whether God gave them the sickness. In the morning they believe they are going to live but in the afternoon, they tell all their friends about how rare their condition is and Google to see how many people survived it. The bible says this is wavering faith, does not please God and limits Him from having access to work on your behalf. The battle is a faith battle and one has to believe with all our hearts that we can trust God and his Word. Re: martyrdom…Jesus told Peter how he was going to die. I am confident that God will prepare a believer to face martyrdom and if that’s your call, there is a special place in God’s kingdom for you. Finally, if a person doesn’t get their healing and dies young or before they completed their race, they get to be with the Lord, which the Bible says is better. Personally, I want to run my race and complete my course and with God’s grace, I’m confident I will achieve this.

  10. I believe I will live long! Untill I age 100 I just gotta keep on honoring my mother and father which is hard lol but I’m gonna keep on working on it because I really hope that God prolongs many days on this earth untill I’m really old doing what God is guiding me to do and does the same for anyone who reads the scriptures and desires it Amen!

  11. God is Faithful. He has promised me and my family old ripe age. So shall it be in Jesus Name AMen because HiS WORD is yES AND AMEN. FroM ANNE

  12. God is always faithful and we should all seek and gain his anointing power because his word will never come back void and we will and do have the victory!! Praise YOU LORD!
