Living to Be 120

Living to Be 120

Description

Few people today question the "fact" that the average natural lifespan of human beings is 70-80 years, the biblical "threescore years and ten [or] fourscore years" (Ps. 90:10, KJV). Jeff Wolf is one of those few. His startling and revolutionary premise in this book is that God's purpose as revealed in the Bible is that His people routinely live full lives averaging 120 years in length. In other words, Christians should expect to live 120 years, on average. Jeff contends that the church's general assumption of the shorter span of years as "normal" for believers is based partly on culture but is due mainly to a misreading of Scripture; in particular, Genesis 6:3 ..".his days shall be an hundred and twenty years" (KJV) and Psalm 90, especially verse 10. Backing up his claim with Scriptural support throughout, Jeff builds a compelling case for an average lifespan of 120 years as God's desired norm for His people. He links this longevity not only to proper diet and care of the body, but even more importantly to a holy life of humble submission to the will and purpose of God; a life characterized by intimacy, obedience, communion, faith, prayer and, ultimately, the grace of God.
