up with me; I can feel it. It’s too late for me to receive the benefits of those youth-renewing Scriptures.’
No, it’s not too late. Remember, Moses proved it. Hebrew scholars say he felt much the same way you
do now right before he got his new mission at age eighty. Even though he felt his vitality was ebbing and
he had grown weaker with age, the merit of his new mission and the power of God restored his youth and
went on to live strong for another forty years.
God can do something similar for you. He may not be through with you yet. You ought not be willing to leave
this earth until you’re sure you’ve finished the work He has called you to do.
[Moses] not only survived to 120, he thrived at that age.
His death was an astonishing event.
Ø Moses didn’t die of old age.
Ø He didn’t die of weakness.
Ø He didn’t die of sickness or disease. If fact, his body was as strong and healthy as it had been
at the beginning of his mission.
Ø He didn’t die by accident or calamity. Death didn’t sneak up on him and take him by surprise.
Ø He didn’t die a natural death.
He died a supernatural death. God caught Moses spirit away and buried his body where no one
could find it. (Deuteronomy 34:1-7)
Considering how healthy and strong Moses was at that time, we might well wonder, What caused him to die?
The answer is simple and astounding.
Moses died for just one reason – because God told him to.
He had finished the assignment he’d been given. (Deuteronomy 32:48-50)
…No matter how old we are, we don’t have to get sick and feeble to die. We don’t have to let the devil
evict us from our bodies by inflicting some kind of disease or injury upon us. We can just finish our divine
assignments and then let God gather us to Himself.”
