One of the benefits of new birth that every Christian should enjoy is long life. Why then do some Christians die untimely? The reason should be that they do not know the causes of untimely death. Beloved, ignorance is no bliss neither is it an excuse. You must learn the causes of untimely death and you will not become its victim.

For instance, when you indulge yourself in adultery and fornication, you will expose yourself to all forms of demonic attacks. You can be easily slaughtered like Christmas goat by the devil because your spiritual immunity and divine protection are removed immediately you indulge yourself in such sins. Similarly, every time you eat or drink, you are either feeding a disease or fighting it.

It is very important for a man that wants to stay healthy, vibrant physically and spiritually and live long to eat what the body needs for effective metabolism and growth (Gen. 3:17). Any work of the flesh you engage in as listed in Galatian 5:19 is a courier letter to sudden death and short life.

In 1 Corinthians 11:24, the Bible also warns that eating and drinking the cup of the Lord unworthily causes weakness and sickness unto death. A drunkard or an adulterer or a witch, or fomicator or someone keeping malice and at the same time participating in Holy Communion is inviting sudden and untimely death. Another cause of untimely death is disobedience to parents. In Exodus 20:12, the Bible says, “Honour thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.” I enjoin you that if you have parents or even a guardian, ensure you take proper care of them; make them happy and you will attract the blessings of God to your life.

These are few among many things that can cause a person short life which you should avoid as this year goes on, so that the promises of God will be fulfilled in your life. Note that dying of cancer, accident, stray bullet, civil war is not the plan of God for His children because He said in Isaiah 26:3 that “thou wilt keep in him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee, because he truseth in thee.” As you trust the Lord, sudden and untimely death will never be your portion, in the name of Jesus.


1. Repent and ask for forgiveness for the sin you committed that opened your life to sudden death.
2. Sins shall not have dominion over me, by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
3. Bondage of sin over my life, break by fire, in the name of Jesus.

4. Messenger of untimely death on assignment against me, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. Spiritual hired killer, assigned against my family, die, in the name of Jesus.
6. Powers that do not want to see me alive, you are a liar, dia, in the name of Jesus.
7. In my home this year, there shall be no loss of lives and properties, by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
