25 KJV Bible Verses About Long Life

by Pamela Rose Williams · Print Print · Email Email

The Bible is all about life and death. The very first book, Genesis, is all about the beginning; including the beginning of life on earth. And the last book, Revelation, is mostly about the final destruction or death of the world. In Biblical times, before the effects of a sin drenched world caught up with men, they lived hundreds and hundreds of years. Today, our average life expectancy is not even 80 years old. So then, what is the secret to long life? Here are just 25 KJV Bible verses that I found about long life.

Immortality and Deathlessness

Hosea 13:14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: Repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.

1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel

Eternal Life of the Soul

Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

1 Corinthians 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

More Promises of Everlasting Life

Acts 24:15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

2 Corinthians 4:14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

Some Doubt

Luke 20:27–28 Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him, Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man’s brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

1 Corinthians 15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

2 Timothy 2:17–18 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

Final Thoughts

Though life on this earth may be short or long, the Bible truth of the matter is that when we put our trust in Jesus as our Savior, He will save us from the penalty of sin which is death (Romans 6:23). Believe it or doubt it, your eternal destination depends upon it!
