You are Built to last!-
Strength For Sunday and Beyond
Human body is built by God…and He breathed life , ‘rhuah’, i.e. , ‘spirit’ into man, male and female…Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul
In Latin, it is ‘animam viventem’ an animated or a living soul ‘ living soul man and woman . They were thus ‘animated’ by God. They are spiritual beings .
God promised long life…if you call upon God …Psa 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.Psa 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
God had promised you that you can last 120 i.e., one hundred and twenty years…Deu 34:7 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.Our God who sustained MOSES is still the same today…Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Remember, today if you don’t stager in unbelief, God will perform whatever He has promised,…Rom 4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;Rom 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
Today what kills people prematurely?

Sin…Romans 8:12-13; 1 Cor 6:9-10.

The youths’ refusal to submit to the elders….
Refusal to be clothed with humility….1 Pe 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
1Pe 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

Fear or Scare by the impostor lion’s satanic roars…1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour
Our Christ is the real Lion of the tribe of Judah.Rev 5:10. Now Judah means praise.( Gen 29:35) Join this tribe of praise singers of God and their Lion will defend you.
I remember in 1996, at RCCG, Peace Assembly, New Karu, Nasarawa state, Nigeria where I first pastored life Lion physically stood up and defended a member that people wanted to kill by placing a deadly sacrifice at her shop at about 00:2 :am.
It was the witch doctor that ran to widowed Mama Ekene to tell the story. The simple prayer we had said was, Lion of the tribe of Judah, defend your daughter.
Satanic agents…Eph 6:19-18But if you believe and live holy by grace , Satan and His agents will flee fom you….JAMES 4:7
