LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!!



What pops into your head, when I say, “Live Long And Prosper?” Is it not the desire of every man and every woman alive? That is, every sane man and every sane woman’s desire. Every man and every woman wants to live a long, healthy, and prosperous life; nobody “wants” for their life to end, people like living and living well. Living well is every man and woman’s desire, and from the time they’re born, they strive to make the best of the life they had been given.


Even you friend, from the moment that you’re born into this world, your efforts are focused on creating a life, a good and prosperous life, for yourself and those you love. As much as the efforts of every man and woman on earth, are geared toward creating the long, safe, happy, healthy, and prosperous life, they so desire, they are all too aware of the fact, that “their efforts alone,” cannot create all that they desire to have. For the primary reason, that they recognize, consciously or subconsciously, that God is the One Who really controls their world, and their ultimate realities. God set certain boundaries in place, which man cannot cross, apart from the express will of God, God holds the destiny of every man and woman on earth in His hand, even their very breath. A lot of people run from this Truth, that God is the One in control of this world, with all its flaws and chaos, but running from the Truth won’t make it any less True or less Real. God is in charge, in charge of everything everywhere in God’s domain. A man or woman, cannot live on this planet, apart from the will of the Creators of this world. Even the most spiritual, and the most religious among men understand, that their destinies and futures, are ultimately in the hands of God. The thing that I found among people, among those who fear God, and among those who care nothing about God, or the will of God, is, that all live in the great uncertainty, of not knowing when their lives will end, or whether they will live long prosperous lives.


All people, even those who care nothing for God, or the will and commands of God, desire to live peaceful, safe, healthy, long, and prosperous lives, with their loved ones. Even those who hate God, they desire to live long and prosperous lives, even those who live recklessly, and who does stupid things, like their own lives don’t matter to them, they desire to live long prosperous lives. But the one thing, which exists at the very core of every man and woman on earth, is the great uncertainty, of not knowing when their end will come. Now, I’m not writing this to sound gloomy, but it is to make a point. And the point is, that just about every man and woman on earth, live in great uncertainty. Even those who have access to the written word of God, with all God’s promises, they live in uncertainty.



Leaders of faith live in uncertainty, they don’t know how long their lives will be, the same uncertainties are found in God’s word, where God’s own prophets and messengers, anointed and chosen by God, were found to have no certainty about the length of their own lives, and they had no certainty, and no complete peace in them. It is a terrible thing to live like that, not knowing when your life will end, or for how long you will live, all you have is hope. A hope in God to live long, hoping that God will honour what is written about God, that He will grant them a long and prosperous life. If the leaders of faith live with such a great uncertainty in them, then what about their followers? How can the followers of uncertainty have certainty? How can the weak have strength, when those who are supposed to be the strong have none? Friend, certainty is a strength, a benefit, a confidence and a great calm. I look into the eyes of the leaders of men, and there is that uncertainty, that fear, that weakness. The great calm is absent, the confidence is not there, and they are weak.


I don’t blame humans for being weak or uncertain. God created humans, and it is God’s responsibility to inspire confidence, it is God’s responsibility to be a Guiding Light to a young race. The lives of humans are so short, so brief it is tragic. Humans die so young, what are a hundred years when compared to eternity? It is nothing!! What is God doing about inspiring confidence in mankind? Well, there is the word of God, but is that sufficient?

I will tell you God’s solution to mankind’s brief lifespan. I will tell you what God wants mankind to know, God’s solution to mankind living long, and prospering. It is written:

“Remember your Creator while you are young, before the days of trouble come.” (Ecclesiastes 12:1)


That is God’s solution, simple I’d say. Remember your Creator. What is so difficult about that, knowing or remembering your Creator? If that is all that is needed for man and woman to live long and prosper, then there is nothing to it, right? Well, easier said than done, your hearts must be pure.


“Who may ascend the hill of the LORD, who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart.” (Psalm 24:3-4)

You see friend, anybody can claim to know God, but very few can prove that they do, because your very lifespan is attached to that knowledge. If you know God, Truly know God, then you will have the knowledge that is needed to live. And I am not speaking about the puffed up knowledge of the proud, I hate pride. How can your heart be pure when you are proud? Pride will lead to the downfall of its bearer. Anybody can quote scripture and read the bible, but not everyone can understand it. (And that is the reason why there are so many different denominations, all of them read the same scriptures, yet none of them agree. They read the scriptures without really understanding the scriptures. Just because you can quote a verse, does not mean, that you necessarily interpret it correctly, hence all the differences among different denominations, most just misinterpret scripture. And where there are differences in interpretation, there are different spirits. All the different denominations claim to be led by God's Spirit, yet none of them agree with one another, that is, because they are all led or influenced by different spirits.) There are many voices in the world, and the vast majority, prove to be of no righteous benefit to their followers, and that, because they are unwise. God’s word is not for private interpretation, it is "God’s word." If you have understanding of the scriptures or the word of God, in Truth, then you will know how to stay alive and overcome evil.

''Understanding is the fountain of life to those who have it.'' (Proverbs 16:22)

This verse says: "Understanding is the fountain of life, to those who have it." It means, that there are those who does not have understanding, and they do not have the fountain of life, because they do not have understanding. Those with understanding possess something, which those without understanding does not have, and that is, the fountain of life. If you have understanding, then you have the fountain of life. The question is: What is it that God wants you to understand?

''You will understand what is right and just and fair -every good path.'' (Proverbs 2:9)


Meaning, that if you have understanding of what is right and just and fair, you will have found the fountain of life!! You will understand which paths are good paths, and you will avoid the evil paths, which will shorten your life. You have to understand every good path, and that is why God wants you to remember Him when you are young, so God can teach you, there is much to learn, because there are many good paths. There are many good paths and God wants you to understand what is right about every one of them, not just some, but every good path.

''The highway of the upright avoids evil; he who guards his way guards his life.'' (Proverbs 16:17)



''Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous. For the upright will live in the land and the blameless will remain in it.'' (Proverbs 2:20-21)

These are so simple, but to gain understanding you will have to know God, and God will give you understanding. I know for a fact, that humans, or rather the just, or righteous humans in particular, should live beyond a hundred years, because God made provision for that in His Covenant of Peace. According to God’s Covenant, it is the will of God for “the just or upright” in particular, to live long and prosper, but through understanding, and knowledge which comes from God. You will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous, and that, because there are ways where the good are supposed to walk, prepared ways for good people, and good paths where only the righteous walk. That is why the just are encouraged to keep to those good paths, because there are good paths just for the righteous. When you walk in those good paths and keep to them (Not running up and down like you don't know where you belong), then you will live and remain, because you keep to the good paths.

The LORD will open the heavens, the  storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom." (Deuteronomy 28:2-13)
