How Old?

What is the average life span, 70, 75, 80? That is crazy to think about. That is considered old! That was less than mid-life for many who lived in the Old testament times. Did you know that one day humans will live to be that old again? I doubt it is in your or my lifetime but that will happen again.

“I will rejoice in Jerusalem and delight in my people. And the sound of weeping and crying will be heard no more. No longer will babies die when only a few days old. No longer will adults die before they have lived a full life. No longer will people be considered old at 100 years! Only sinners will die that young!” Isaiah 65:19-20

So why not now? Why do people die so young right now? Well the answer many people tend to give is sin. It very well could be sin. I am not sure why. God is telling us that one day we will live to be older than 100 again and so what are your thoughts on the way life will be in those days?

  1. You know, I did not know that. Is that referring to life in heaven? Or here on Earth…I know I can walk into the other room and ask you and probably will. Just curious!

    • In the temporal kingdom or what is known as the 1,000 years in between when Jesus comes back and eternity begins, the “curse” that makes us die young will be lifted. Therefore, people will once again live to be hundreds of years old. If a person in that 1,000 years time dies at a mere 100 years old he will be considered a youth and that God has taken him because of sin. Crazy huh!
